|Charge of the Star Goddess
Hear the words of the Star Goddess,
The dust of whose feet
Are the hosts of the Heavens,
And whose body encircles the universe.
"I who am the beauty of the Green
And the White Moon among the Stars,
and the Mystery of the Waters,
I call upon your soul to arise and come to Me.
For I am the Soul of Nature
That gives life to the Universe.
From Me all things proceed
And to Me all things must return.
Beloved of the Gods and Men,
Whose innermost Divine Self
Shall be enfolded in the rapture of the Infinite.
Let My worship be in the heart that rejoices,
All acts of love and pleasure are My rituals.
Let there be beauty and strength,
Power and compassion, honor and humility,
Mirth and reverence within you all.
And you who wish to seek Me,
Know that your seeking and yearning
Gains you nothing until you know the Mystery -
That if that which you seek,
You do not find within yourself
You will never find it without.
I have been with you from the Beginning,
and I am that which is attained at the End of Desire."
