The Wiccan Rede
(Full Version)



Bide within the Law you must, in perfect Love and perfect Trust.
Live you must and let to live, fairly take and fairly give.

For tread the Circle thrice about to keep unwelcome spirits out.
To bind the spell well every time, let the spell be said in rhyme.

Light of eye and soft of touch, speak you little, listen much.
Honor the Old Ones in deed and name,
let love and light be our guides again.

Deosil go by the waxing moon, chanting out the joyful tune.
Widdershins go when the moon doth wane,
and the werewolf howls by the dread wolfsbane.

When the Lady’s moon is new, kiss the hand to Her times two.
When the moon rides at Her peak then your heart’s desire seek.

Heed the North winds mighty gale, lock the door and trim the sail.
When the Wind blows from the East, expect the new and set the feast.

When the wind comes from the South, love will kiss you on the mouth.
When the wind whispers from the West, all hearts will find peace and rest.

Nine woods in the Cauldron go, burn them fast and burn them slow.
Birch in the fire goes to represent what the Lady knows.

Oak in the forest towers with might, in the fire it brings the God’s
insight.   Rowan is a tree of power causing life and magick to flower.

Willows at the waterside stand ready to help us to the Summerland.
Hawthorn is burned to purify and to draw faerie to your eye.

Hazel-the tree of wisdom and learning adds its strength to the bright fire burning.
White are the flowers of Apple tree that brings us fruits of fertility.

Grapes grow upon the vine giving us both joy and wine.
Fir does mark the evergreen to represent immortality seen.

Elder is the Lady’s tree burn it not or cursed you’ll be.
Four times the Major Sabbats mark in the light and in the dark.

As the old year starts to wane the new begins, it’s now Samhain.
When the time for Imbolc shows watch for flowers through the snows.

When the wheel begins to turn soon the Beltane fires will burn.
As the wheel turns to Lamas night power is brought to magick rite.

Four times the Minor Sabbats fall use the Sun to mark them all.
When the wheel has turned to Yule light the log the Horned One rules.

In the spring, when night equals day time for Ostara to come our way.
When the Sun has reached it’s height time for Oak and Holly to fight.

Harvesting comes to one and all when the Autumn Equinox does fall.
Heed the flower, bush, and tree by the Lady blessed you’ll be.

Where the rippling waters go cast a stone, the truth you’ll know.
When you have and hold a need, harken not to others greed.

With a fool no season spend or be counted as his friend.
Merry Meet and Merry Part bright the cheeks and warm the heart.

Mind the Three-fold Laws you should three times bad and three times good.
When misfortune is enow wear the star upon your brow.

Be true in love this you must do unless your love is false to you.

These Eight words the Rede fulfill:

“An Ye Harm None, Do What Ye Will”

Let’s Talk Witch – Let’s Get Right Down to It & See Exactly What the Wiccan Rede Means?

WITH THESE EIGHT WORDS
THE WICCAN REDE FULFILL:
“AN IT HARM NONE, DO WHAT YE WILL.”
Copyright 08/17/92 by Servants Of The Elder Gods,
Rocky Mountain Coven and James C. Taylor

OVERVIEW. The purpose of this paper is to look at the Wiccan Rede,
at the types of conduct it excludes, and at the type of conduct it
requires. We will begin with a detailed examination of the wording
of the Rede itself, which presents as “pseudo-archaic” but actually
makes excellent use of the specific meanings of several archaic
words which have no real equivalents in contemporary English. We
will then take a look at the two sections of the Rede, and see why
they are presented in their proper order as written. Finally, we
will examine various uses of magick and see how–and if–they
adequately measure up to the standard of the Rede.

THE VOCABULARY OF THE WICCAN REDE. As mentioned above, the Rede
appears to be presented in a pseudo-archaic or “phony ancient” form
of English. Is this simply harmless foolishness, or is there some
excellent reason for the vocabulary selected? Let’s take a look
at the Rede, word by word.

AN: This word is commonly mistranslated as “IF”, which is a
significant error. The word “AN” is more accurately
translated “JUST SO LONG AS”.

IT: This pronoun refers to whatever it is that you are
thinking of doing.

HARM: This refers to anything which either you or any other
person involved or affected by “it” would regard as loss,
damage, pain, discomfort, injustice, invasiveness, or
prevention, relative to the situation existing before
“it” was done. Anything which goes against another
person’s free will, even if it intends them good, would
constitute serious harm.

NONE: This ought to be self-explanatory. “None” is an all-
exclusive word. If you harm anyone or anything,
including yourself, including a small rock in Trenton,
New Jersey, you have harmed “some”, not “none”.

DO: To perform whatever working is contemplated by “IT”,
above.

WHAT: The meaning here is “Whatever”, and refers forward.

YE: The archaic PLURAL form of “you”. The current word “you”
denotes both the singular and the plural; the archaic
word “YE” is always plural. We shall see, later on, that
this is no accident.

WILL: To will something is to exercise your intellectual
decision-making power to determine the course of action
which you feel to be the best. “Will” has little or
nothing to do with “wish” or “want” or “desire”. It is
not an emotional inclination or feeling. It is the
employment of reason to make a decision based upon your
best judgment.

THE TWO SECTIONS OF THE WICCAN REDE;

A. SECTION ONE: “AN IT HARM NONE”.

Why does the Wiccan Rede not say, “Do what ye will, an it harm
none”? There is a reason why the “An it harm none” comes
first in the Rede, and that reason is that “An it harm none”
is intended to come first in your own thinking, as a Wiccan
initiate and practitioner. If you or any Wiccan begins with
“Do what ye will”, I assure you that you, like the
Fundamentalists before you, will find a way to excuse and even
to justify anything you take it into your head to do! Knowing
this about human nature, the Lady inspired the Rede to be
written as it is, with the “An it harm none” to come first.

The Wiccan Rede’s “An it harm none” has parallels in many
disciplines. Perhaps the most significant parallel is found
in the Hippocratic Oath taken by every physician before s/he
is certified to practice. The first part of the Hippocratic
Oath binds the physician “First, to do no harm.” It is
sobering to realize that magical ethics, as set forth in the
Wiccan Rede, are or should be so similar to medical ethics,
an issue with such a powerful effect on so many lives.

When we read of a physician who has violated his medical
ethics, we read this with outrage toward him and with empathy
toward those patients who suffered inadequate care because the
physician violated his ethics. It is more sobering to realize
that future generations will regard violations of magickal
ethics with the same degree of outrage, and rightly so.

B. SECTION TWO: “DO WHAT YE WILL.”

Even without the first part of the Rede, “Do what ye will” is
most certainly not a blanket permission to do whatever you
desire to do. As one Wiccan High Priestess has observed,
“Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.”
Seems like I’ve heard that before, but it’s certainly true
when you’re talking about using real magick to accomplish real
goals in the real world.

When we realize the kinds and orders of results, both expected
and unexpected, both knowable and unknowable, which eventuate
from almost every human action, it would seem the better part
of both valor and wisdom to never do anything at all,
especially not anything which is done with spiritual power
guided by no more than human wisdom! Unfortunately, to do
nothing is also a choice, and the results of inaction are
often far worse than the results of even ill-considered
action. This is why the second half of the Rede demands that
we make a decision and act upon it, as well as conforming that
decision to the requirement that it harm none.

THE STANDARD OF THE REDE. Please note that the Wiccan Rede
contains no loop-holes whatsoever. The Rede does not say, “An it
harm none to the best of your knowledge.” The Rede also does not
say “An it harm none to the best of your ability to discern whether
it will harm someone.”

The Wiccan Rede does not say these things, or anything similar to
them. It simply says “An it harm NONE, do what ye will.” This
means that YOU, once you have committed to live by the Wiccan Rede,
are committed to be solely and totally responsible for any harm
resulting from ANY ACTION YOU TAKE, MAGICKAL OR NOT.

Paul Seymour’s forthcoming book begins with some strong cautionary
notes concerning the use of magick. One of the examples he gives
is particularly tragic, and concerns a young man who worked a
simple and apparently harmless “money spell”. The spell worked,
and the young man got his money–he inherited it, when his parents
were both killed in an accident shortly after he worked the spell.

Paul does not say in his book if this young man was a Wiccan
initiate. If he was, then in addition to his sorrow and loss, he
has had to live with the fact that, by the standard of the Rede,
he is ultimately responsible for the death of his parents.

When you commit to live according to the Wiccan Rede, you commit
to conform your entire life, not just the magickal, mystical and
religious aspects of it, to the standard set by the Rede. Never
again will you be able to act impulsively or without considering
the results of what you do. Never again will you be able to act
or even speak in thoughtless irritation or anger. Instead, you
will come to consider the implications of every word you speak, and
of every routine action you do. For it is not just by magick that
we can harm ourselves or others; everything we do, and everything
we say, has the potential to help or harm others, and to help or
harm ourselves.

It is also important to note that the Rede sets up a standard which
prevents us from harming ourselves as well as others. Other
religions, including Christianity, regard it as virtuous to suffer
harm for the sake of another, even to die so that another person
might live. The Wiccan Rede does not permit this. You are to harm
none, and this means that you are not to harm yourself, even for
the sake of doing good for someone else.

To some, this may seem like a selfish standard. But think about
it. Would you wish to benefit by someone else’s injury or death?
Of course not! If you did derive some benefit, such as an
inheritance, from the death of another person, would you feel good
about this? Well, some people might, but probably you would not.
Therefore, in a very real sense, you yourself are harmed by a
benefit you derive from the injury or death of another. True, the
harm is emotional, but it is entirely real.

Wicca recognizes that human beings are social creatures. What does
harm to one, does harm to all in varying degrees. Therefore, it
is imperative that each person strive to harm no one, himself or
herself included.

Finally, it is significant to note that word “ye” in the statement,
“Do what YE will.” This is the ancient plural form of “you”, and
it means that your individual will is assumed to be in accord with
some other will, instead of acting entirely on its own.

What is this other will which, together with yours, comprises the
“ye” in the Rede? Well, if you are working in a coven, it could
well be the combined will of the members of the coven. But this
would not apply to those who are working on their own, and it is
not the highest or best meaning, even for those working in coven.

How does one act, so as to be certain to harm none? Not by
refusing to act, since inaction is itself a decision, and often
causes far more harm than even rash action. Not by delaying action
until the time for it is past, because that is the same as
inaction. And not by relying solely upon your own human wisdom,
either.

The best way to act, so as to be certain to harm none, is to call
upon the Goddess and/or the God, and to hand to Them the power you
have raised, together with the situation you have raised the power
to deal with, and say, “You are holy, good, and wise, and know how
to use this power to help and not harm. Do Your will in this
situation. That is my will, that Your will be done.” And thus the
Rede is fulfilled: For the “ye” who will are yourself and Them-
selves, who are good, and love humanity, and who always act for the
highest good of all.

The Goddess Creed

Celtic & British Isles Graphics

The Goddess Creed

I believe in Goddess the Mother All Mighty

Creatrix of the heavens and earth

And in all women

Who were conceived of Her love

Born of our sacred mothers

Suffered under patriarchy

Were crucified, died, and were buried

We descended into the underworld

The third day we arose again

We integrated with our new selves

And we now sit with Goddess our Mother

And we judge no one

I believe in the Holy Mother

The maiden, mother, crone

Forgiveness toward others

The celebration of the body

And everlasting renewal of life

So Mote It Be

Let’s Talk Witch – Thresholds of Power

Witchy Cat Graphics & Comments

Thresholds of Power

The door has long captured the imagination of poets, mystics and magicians. It is symbolic, often appearing in dreams and nightmares. What lies behind the door? What strange creatures, fabulous wonderlands, hidden dangers?

While more pedestrian, windows have their magical properties and lore as well. If they are the eyes of a home, the door is its mouth. Both possess special powers, and both are generally blessed to prevent the entrance of unfriendly energies into the home.

A door isn’t much-a flat piece of wood, two knobs, three hinges, some hardware. But doors are entrances into other dimensions. In form, they echo the trilithons of Stonehenge and other European megalithic structures: two upright stones with a third resting on top, creating a threshold of power.

Doors are entrances to buildings as well as exits from them; therefore, they are often seen as gateways to other worlds. They also serve as protective devices that bar the dangerous from entering. Because of this, the door and all its parts (lintel, posts, threshold, keys) have assumed magical, almost sacral qualities.

Many of the rites associated with doors are protective in nature. Hanging a gourd on both sides of the outside of a door will ward off unwanted negativity, as will a piece of bamboo or a wreath of leaves and thorns placed over it. A circle chalked on the door bars ghosts from entering; garlic or dill suspended over the front door repels those who are ill-disposed or envious of you from gaining entrance; and a bag of salt or bells hung from the knob will set demons to flight.

Other spells favored to guard the home from the entrance of evil include: placing two crossed needles

under the doormat; painting the door blue, a sacred color; sprinkling mustard seeds or ground dragon’s blood on the doorsill; and hammering three nails in the shape of a triangle (one point up) on the outside of the front door.

Specific herbs are grown on the porch to further protect the home. Ferns, lilies, marigolds and juniper are grown there in pots. An old sock filled with salt, sage, mullein, tansy and any other protective herbs can be buried beneath the front porch to keep ghosts from the home. A box of holed stones or a knife beneath the porch are similarly potent magical protectants.

The door also functions as an ideal place for inviting certain energies or attributes into your home. Five shiny pennies placed beneath the porch will bring the household money and love, for instance, and a bit of food buried there ensures that you won’t know hunger.

If you wish to see a ghost, the doorway is an ideal place to practice, according to ancient tradition. At dusk or midnight, stand at any door in the dark, looking into another room. With the door half-opened, lay your cheek against it and peer just past its edge. If you persevere, you may see spirits and strange shapes. Why? Because the door is an entrance to other worlds.

If you wish to be rid of ghosts, they can be exorcised simply by slamming a door several times in succession. The ghosts get caught between the door and the frame and will soon have enough of the torture and leave. If you enjoy ghosts, however, don’t slam doors!

Powers That You Need for Magick

Powers You Need for Magick

 

Like miracles, magick doesn’t always accomplish what we want. Sometimes the practitioner is just not ready or strong enough, and sometimes, things just are not meant to be. There is a certain cycle to all life and regardless of how much we desire to change it, it is not always possible. A friend of mine wrote something to me once that made me realize that sometimes special people are “given” to us for only a short period of time, so that they might learn from us and us from them, before going on to the next incarnation or “heaven” if you prefer. Sometimes having a special person in your life is a “gift”, but one that just isn’t meant to last forever. Magick is also like that. Some of us are ready and some of us are not. But for those of you that are, you will need a few things to begin. And those things are your Powers.

Before going on, take this into consideration. Visualization is very important to magick. You can not perform magick without it. With the simple power of visualization via meditation, you can rearrange the atoms in your body to produce better health conditions. You can consciously ” feel” your way through the human body and manipulate your cellular structure solely by the power of your thought waves. (More on this later: See link at bottom of page) You can visualize the illness or trouble spot fading and diminishing until it finally dissolves completely and the excretory system carries it away into nothingness. Once you have accomplished this, it transforms itself into reality. Others can also help to boost the process by sending out their thought waves, prayers, dedications, declarations, etc into the Universe to co-mingle with yours. In fact, the more energy, the better off you are. You just have to redirect those atoms and form them into a different pattern. And this is done by “magick”. And as I mentioned above, to do this you need your powers. You will find them listed below.

The Power of Belief: First, you must believe. You can not go into this with total disbelief because to do so is to admit defeat from the beginning. If you can emit strong believing thought patterns and emotions, then the liklihood of them taking shape is much greater than not. You must be able to “see” your request or desire taking shape in your mind and you must believe in yourself to do this. The Power of Belief can turn out to be an incredible thing.

The Power of Declarations: You must declare your intentions completely but firmly. Make sure to be as detailed as possible. You are sending out a declaration to the cosmos, so let’s get it started off on the right foot, shall we?

The Power of Attention: Attention is something that not many of us put a whole lot of work into. When you are learning to meditate and focus, to concentrate and control, attention must be foremost in your actions. When you begin a healing, you must pay attention before, during, and afterwards to your body or your patient’s body. To diagnose and heal, you must make yourself fully aware of all that is happening. And you must learn to control you own thoughts and emotions, so you must pay attention to these things specifically.

The Power of Positive Thinking: Focus your thoughts and free them of negativity . If your thought patterns are full of fear, then you will attract this type of energy back to yourself….. just as you do out in social situations. In public, if you smile at people, most will smile back but if you scowl, they either scowl back or totally ignore you. Being scowled at or ignored is not your goal. Likewise if you transmit thoughts full of love and trust, you will attract this also. You must try to free your mind of all negative energy and meditation can help you do this.

The Power of Responsibility: Taking responsibility means accepting that what you do is your own decision and no one elses. It means taking consequences for what you do or cause to happen, and not putting it off on the nearest “victim”. “He made me do it”, or “But I thought it was the truth…” are not acceptable excuses.

In fact, anytime you do something, no matter what you were told or thought, you are solely responsible for what takes place from then on out. Responsibility means “bucking up” and meeting situations head on and with fervor. Don’t put things on the back burner. Take charge of your life. And once you do, make the most of it. In this way, you prepare yourself for whatever work you must accomplish, and you also realize that if you don’t make things happen, then nobody else is going to do it for you.

The Power of Repetition: Once you have determined your goals, you need to focus on them over and over. Repetitive actions only make the process stronger. It may be called Magick, but you still can’t get it just by twitching your nose or blinking your eyes, so put some oomph into it. Repeat those thoughts and emotions.

The Power of the People: It is possible to do many things by yourself, but it never hurts to have extra resources on hand when needed. The more people that aid you in your healing, the better. They don’t even have to be present. In fact, this might disturb things in an unpleasant manner for you or your patient. The more people sending out their thought waves, prayers, dedications, declarations, etc into the Universe to co-mingle with yours, the better off you are. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. People might surprise you.

Now that you have been armed with your powers, make the most of them.

The Spirit and Magick

The Spirit and Magick

 

Like the God & Goddess, we are all  three-part beings. You have a body, “mind”, and soul.

The BODY is self-explanatory.

The “MIND” holds a consciousness, a subconsciousness, and a super-consciousness. 

 

Your internal self is a SOUL or a spirit. You may be “all” these things, but you are still “ONE” person. Getting clearer?

This portion of you, the soul, is within the body. A larger, multidimensional portion of you, called the Higher Self exists simultaneously outside the body at all times, and in all places, and in all incarnations.

Everything, Mind, Body, Soul and the Higher Self is a part of the Creator as well. Entertwined you become the energy known as Akasha. This is what creates Magick or Miracles. This is personal empowerment. The all-encompassing spirit!!

In doing magick of any kind, you are going to have to use all of yourself, the consciousness, a subconsciousness, and a super-consciousness to visualize, meditate, focus, and practice what you need to know and do, along with the forces of nature. Air (one of the elements and one used frequently) may be what transports that new thoughtwave or bit of electrical energy that you are planning on sending out to it’s newest destination. That will mean that the atoms of air, the atoms of you, the atoms of the Spirit will all be in contact at the time, moving, exchanging, changing etc. Magick will not come if you can not learn to use all of the above together at the appropriate times.

In other words, if you put your whole self into what you are doing, use all the “energy” from that weary old brain (all areas of consciousness’) that you can muster, and all the feeling from that still-beating heart, you can generate some powerful energy. Energy that no one but you is in control of….as long as you can also learn how to focus it and direct it.

Establishing Sacred Space

Establishing Sacred Space

by Skye Alexander

The distinction between ordinary space and sacred space is an important one when it comes to magickal workings. Just as Christians go to a church to commune with God, Wiccans and witches practice magick in special areas designated for that purpose. The hallowed space may be a natural place, such as the oak groves where the early Druids performed rituals. Or it can be a structure built by human hands. Witches often erect altars in their homes; the place where the altar stands is considered sacred.

Many ancient ceremonial sites, such as Stonehenge, embody sacred space. Often Europe’s cathedrals were constructed at places the early pagans considered sacred. In part, this was done to ease the transition as Christianity supplanted the Old Religion. But sacred sites, as anyone who’s been to the Chalice Well in Glastonbury or Machu Piccu can attest, resonate with extraordinary energies that inspire reverence.

“Sacred space is a place where we honor the divine …. The purpose of sacred space is to awaken an awareness of our intimate connection to the spiritual world and to the universe as a whole.”

— Carolyn E. Cobelo, The Power of Sacred Space

Within a sacred space, it’s easy to sense the presence of a higher power and to connect with it. You step outside your ordinary world and move into a realm where wondrous possibilities exist. Many people experience physical and psychological changes, such as those that occur during meditation. At some sacred sites, such as Lourdes, miraculous healings are believed to occur.

Some sacred places are permanent — indeed, many have existed for millennia. Others are designed to be temporary, perhaps lasting only for the duration of a ritual or spell.

A Place for Magick

You’ll probably want to designate a special place for working magick. Depending on your locale and personal preference, you can choose a spot outdoors or indoors — or both. It may be a private spot for your use only, or a public area that you feel drawn to.

Perhaps you’ve already chosen a place. If not, you might decide to dowse certain prospective sites to determine which is best for your purposes. You can dowse with special rods or with a pendulum. Many sensitive individuals simply tune in to the energies of places, without using a dowsing device. If a place feels right to you and the input you receive from your own guides, deities, or angels supports your choice, you can proceed to sanctify it for magick rituals.

Labyrinth-wright Marty Cain always dowses an area to locate the best spot for a labyrinth. She also asks for divine guidance and requests permission from the earth and earth spirits before she builds a labyrinth in a site she has chosen for this sacred circle.

Feng shui, the ancient Chinese art of placement, can also help you find the ideal place. Although there are many different schools of feng shui, each with somewhat different principles and perspectives, the most popular version in the United States utilizes a tool called a bagua. This simple device allows you to assess your home, a single room, your yard, or any other space. The bagua contains nine sectors that correspond to the various parts of your life. One sector relates to wisdom and spirituality. Aligning a bagua to your home or yard lets you instantly see which portion will best support your spiritual and magickal pursuits.

Some people like to site their sacred spaces along compass lines. This helps to ground you and align your own energies with those of the earth. It also makes it easy to call the four directions, which is part of many rituals (see “Calling the Four Quarters/Directions” later in this chapter).

Clearing Unwanted Vibrations

Whether you choose to establish a sacred space inside or out, you’ll want to clear it of unwanted energies before you begin doing magick there. According to feng shui, all objects contain energy and affect the overall environment. If possible, remove items — furniture, artwork, equipment, etc. — that you find distracting or that aren’t harmonious with your intentions. Everything that remains in your sacred space should pertain to your spiritual and magickal path.

Don’t use chemical insecticides or other poisons in your sacred space. Whatever you put into sacred space — physical, emotional, and mental — is amplified. Outside, use natural insect repellants, and salt or mulch to inhibit weed growth. Inside, use only “green” cleaning materials.

Perform a cleansing ritual to get rid of ambient vibrations. The most popular way to do this is called “smudging.” Light some dried sage and allow the aromatic smoke to waft through the area, purifying it. (You can purchase sage wands for this purpose at stores that sell New Age or Native American products.) Burning incense will work, too.

If you prefer, you can play a bell, gong, or drum to break up old energy patterns and chase away unwanted influences. Some people sprinkle salt in the corners of a room or mist the area with saltwater. Witches often use brooms to sweep sacred space clean. In conjunction with any of these clearing rituals, consider chanting an affirmation such as “This space is now cleansed of all harmful, disruptive, and unbalanced energies.”

It’s a good idea to clear your sacred space regularly, especially after other people have entered it.

Let’s Talk Witch – Magical Principles

Fairy Comments & Graphics

Magical Principles

  • Magic is natural.

  • Harm none- not even yourself- through its use.

  • Magic requires effort. You will receive what you put into it.

  • Magic is not usually instantaneous. Spells require time to be effective.

  • Magic should not be performed for pay.

  • Magic should not be used in jest or to inflate your ego.

  • Magic can be worked for your own gain, but only if it harms none.

  • Magic is a divine act.

  • Magic can be used for defense but should never be used for attack.

  • Magic is knowledge – not only of its way and laws,but also of its effectiveness. Do not believe that magic works – Know It.

  • Magic is love. All magic should be performed out of love. The moment anger or hatred tinges your magic you have crossed the border into a dangerous world, one that will ultimately consume you.
