Charge of the Star Goddess

 

Hear ye the words of the Star Goddess

The dust of whose feet are the hosts of the heaven

She whose body encircles the Universe:

I am the beauty of the green earth

And the white moon among the stars

And the mystery of the waters

And the desire of human hearts.

Call unto your soul,

Arise and come unto me

For I am the soul of nature

Who gives life to the Universe

From me all things proceed

And unto me all things must return.

Before my face, beloved of all

Let your divine innermost self be enfolded

In the rapture of the infinite.

Let my worship be in the heart that rejoices

For behold, all acts of love and pleasure are my rituals

And therefore let there be beauty and strength

Power and compassion, honor and pride

Mirth and reverence among you.

And you who think to seek for me

Know your seeking and yearning shall avail you not

Unless you know the Mystery:

That if that which you seek you find not within you,

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.
