Wiccan Rede by Summer Song

When people speak of Wicca there is one poem that comes to mind. The Wiccan Rede. The Wiccan Rede is a lovely poem that depicts common practices of Wiccans. Many versions are slightly different but, the one I learned first goes something like this…

Bide the Wiccan Laws ye must, in perfect love and perfect trust.

Live and let live. Fairly take and fairly give.

Cast the Circle thrice about to keep the evil spirits out.

To bind ye spell every time let thy spell be spake in rhyme.

Soft of eye and light of touch, Speak ye little, listen much.

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

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

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

When the moon rides at her peak, then thy heart’s desire seek.

Heed the North wind’s mighty gale, lock the door and trim the sail.

When the wind comes from the South, love will kiss thee on the mouth.

When the wind blows from the West, departed souls will have no rest.

When the wind blows from the East, expect the new and set the feast.

Nine woods in the cauldron go, burn them fast and burn them slow.

Elder be the Lady’s tree, burn it not or cursed ye will be.

When the Wheel begins to turn, let the Beltane fires burn.

When the Wheel has turned to Yule, light the log and the Horned One rules.

Heed ye flower, Bush and Tree, by the Lady, blessed be.

Where the rippling waters go, cast a stone and truth ye will know.

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

When misfortune is enow, wear her star upon thy brow.

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

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

Mind the Threefold Law ye should, three times bad and three times good.

True in love ever be, lest thy lover’s false to thee.

Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill: An ye harm none, do what ye will.

Descent of the Goddess
In this version, the Goddess goes into the Underworld, Talks to the God who is Death and I really had to search this one closely to recognize the 7 levels of the Underworld as she descends. The version I experienced was quite different but I enjoy this version also. Although we have no affiliation, See for details. This was a fun project.

How to become a Witch

To become a witch is not as easy as reading a book or acquiring nature based beliefs. It is about taking action and it is one’s actions that create the witch. In this video, I cover some key points on how to become a witch. it takes work and change to actually become a witch even if you have some natural talent. Before I began on my course to becoming a witch, I was called a natural witch by some of the pagans I knew at the time.

I didn’t really know what it meant to be a witch and I was definitely rough around the edges. Becoming a witch begins on the inside. It isn’t about how you look or how you dress or even how many books you have read. It is about how much you grow and change as an individual on your path in witchcraft. It isn’t even about how often you cast spells.

Becoming a witch regardless if you have adopted a religious belief or not all depends on what you “Do”. What kind of witch you become depends on taking what you learn and what kind of person you want to become and taking action to make it happen. It is often about learning, commitment, discipline and setting goals to make a specific change.

You can take many classes, read thousands of great books, and have the best teachers and deepest thoughts and beliefs but if you don’t take action, the transformation can’t take place.
