The 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,
The white Moon among the Stars,
And the Mystery of the Waters,
I call upon your soul to arise and come unto Me.
For I am the Soul of Nature, which 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 be beauty and strength,
Power and compassion,
Honour and humility,
Mirth and reverence within you.
And you who need to know Me,
Know that your seeking and 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.”
