The Wiccan Rede

The Wiccan Rede

(the short version)

Bide ye Wiccan laws ye must, in perfect love and perfect trust.

Live and let live, fairly take and fairly give.

Form the circle thrice about to keep all evil spirits out.

Soft of eye, light of touch, speak ye little, listen much.

Deosil go by the waxing moon, singing out ye Witches’ Rune.

Widdershins go by the waning moon, chanting out the baneful rune.

When the Lady’s moon is new, kiss your hand to her times two.

When the rippling waters flow, cast a stone and truth ye’ll know.

When ye have and hold a need, harken not with others’ greed.

With a fool no seasons spend, lest ye be counted as his friend.

Merry meet and merry part, bright the cheeks and warm the heart.

Mind ye threefold law ye should, three times bad and three times good.

When misfortune is anow, wear the star upon thy brow.

True in Love ye must ever be, lest thy love be false to thee.

In these eight words, the Wiccan Rede fulfill

“An’ it harm none, do what thou wilt.”
