Charge of the Star Goddess

Hear the words of the Star Goddess, the dust of whose feet are the hosts of heaven, whose body encircles the universe:

I who am the beauty of the green earth, and the white moon among the stars, and the mysteries of the waters, I call upon your soul to arise and come unto me. For I am the soul of nature that gives life to the universe. From me all things proceed, and unto me they must return.

Let my worship be in the heart that rejoices, for behold – all acts of love and pleasure are my rituals.

Let there beauty and strength, power and compassion, honor and humility, mirth and reverence within you.

And you who seek to know me, know that your seeking and your yearning will avail you not, unless you know the Mystery: For if that which you seek, you find not within yourself, you will never find it without.

For behold, I have been with you from the beginning, and I am that which is attained at the end of desire.

 

The Charge of the Star Goddess was originally created by Dion Fortune and was later made into the version used here by Starhawk.
