The Charge of the Goddess

Listen to the words of the Great Mother who of old was called....Artemis, Astarte, Demeter, Melusine, Aphrodite, Cerridwen, Diana, Arianrhod, Brigid, Hecate, Isis — and many other names...

I am the beauty of the green Earth and the white moon, and the mysteries of the waters. From me all things proceed and unto me they must return. Let my worship be in the heart that rejoices, for all acts of pleasure are my rituals. Let there be beauty and strength, power and compassion, mirth, and reverence within you. And you who seek to know me, know that your seeking and yearning will avail you not, unless you know the mystery: 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 which is attained at the end of desire.
