Deities of the World Pantheons Charges of the Deities Prayers to Invoke the Deities

Charge of the God

Listen to the words of the Great Father who
of old was called Osiris, Adonis, Zeus, Thor,
Pan, Cernunnos, Herne, Lugh, Jehovah, and
by many other names.

My law is harmony with all things. Mine
is the secret that opens the gates of life
and mine isthe dish of salt of the earth
that is the body of Cernunnos that is the
eternal cycle of rebirth. I give the knowledge of
life everlasting, and beyond death I give
the promise of regeneration and renewal.
I am the sacrifice, the Father of all things,
and my protection blankets the earth."

Hear the words of the Dancing God, the music
of whose laughter stirs the winds, whose
voice calls the seasons.

I am the Lord of the Hunt and the
power of the bright sun among the clouds
and the secret of teh flame, I call upon
your bodies to arise and come unto me. For I
am the flesh of the earth and all it's beings.
Through me all things must die and with
me are reborn. Let my worships be in the body
that sings, for behold - all acts of willing
sacrifice are my rituals. Let there be desire
and fear, anger and weakness, joy and peace,
awe and longing within you. For these too
are part of the Mystery found within yourself.
Within me all beginnings have ends and all
endings, new beginnings.

Traditional Charge of the Goddess

Listen to the words of the Great Mother, she who of
old was called among men Artemis, Astarte, Athene,
Diane, Melusine, Aphrodite, Cerridwen, Cybele, Isis,
Arianrhod, Dana, Bride and by many other names.

Whenever ye have need of anything, once in a month,
and better it be when themoon is full, then shall ye
assemble in some secret place and colore the spirit
of me, who am Queen of the Witches.

There shall ye assemble, ye who are fain to learn all
sorcery, yet have not won its deepest secrets; to
these I will teach things that are yet unknown. And
ye shall be free from slavery; and as a sign that
ye shall be really free, ye shall be naked in your rites;
and ye shall dance, sing, feast, make music and love,
all in my praise. For mine is the ecstasy of the spirit,
and mine aslo is joy on earth; for my law is love unto
all being.s Keep pure your highest ideal; strive ever
towards it; let naught stop you or turn you aside.
For mine is the secret door which opens upon the Land
of Youth, and mine is the cup of the wine of life, and
the Cauldron of Cerridwen, which is the Holy Grail
of immortality.

I am the Gracious Goddess, who gives the gift of
joy unto the heart of man. Upon earth, I give the
knowledge of the spirit eternal; and beyond death,
I give peace and freedom and reunion with those who
have gone before. Nor do I demand aught in sacrifice;
for behold, I am the Mother of all living, and my love
is poured out upon the earth.

Hear ye the words of the STar Goddess; she in the
dust of whose feet are the hosts of heaven, and
whose body encircles the Univers. I who am the
beauty of the green earth, and the white moon among
the starts, and the mystery of the waters, and the
desire of the heart of man, call unto thy 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, and before my
face, beloved of Gods and of man, let thine inner
most divine self be enfolded in the rapture of the
infinite. Let my worship be within the heart that
rejoiceth, for behold, all acts of love and pleasure
are my rituals. And, therefore, let there be beauty
and strength, power and compassion, honor and humility,
mirth and reverence within you.

And thou who thinkest to seek for me, know thy seeking
and yearning shall avail thee not lest you knowest
the mystery; taht if that which thou seekest thou
findest not within thee, thou will never find it with
out thee. For behold, I have been with thee from the
beginning, and I am taht which is obtained at the end
of desire.

Crystal Waterfall's Charge of the Goddess

I, who am the beauty of the green earth,
The white moon among the stars,
The mysteries of the waters,
Call upon your soul to arise and come unto me.
For I am the soul of nature that gives life to the universe.

From me all things proceed
And unto me all things 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,
honor and humility,
mirth and reverence within you.

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 your heart,
You will never find without.

For I have been with you from the beginning
And I am that which is attained at the end of desire.

Complete Charge of the Goddess

Begin with the Traditional Charge of the Goddess
and end with the Crystal Waterfall's Charge of the Goddess.
I had originally believed these two charges to be complete and
unique in and of themselves, but in the course of my research
I learned that they are simply two halves of the whole. However,
I decided to keep them separate, because they can be and are
used alone as well.

Rhyming Charge of the Goddess
By Dorothy Morrison

I am the harmonious tune of the songbird
And the laughter of a gleeful child.
I am the bubbling sound of the running brook
And the scent of the flowers wild.

I am the floating leaf upon the breeze
And the dancing fire in the forest glade.
I am the sweet smell of rains upon the soil.
And the rapture of passion when love is made.

I am the germination of seed in the Spring
And the ripening of wheat in the Sun.
I am the peaceful depth of the twilight
That soothes the soul when day is done.

I am found in the twinkling of an aged eye...
And found in the birth of a newborn pup...
Yes...Birth and Growth and Death, am I
I am the gracious Earth, on whom you sup.

I am your sister, your mother, the wise one.
I wrap you gently in the warmth of my love.
That which your seek you shall find within:
Not without...not below...not above!

Remember always, my children, be reverent.
Be gentle, loving and kind to each other
And hold sacred the Earth and its creatures:
For I am the Lady: Creatrix and Mother!

Charge of the Dark Goddess

She who is known to us as Kali, Hecate, Cerridwen,
Lilith, Persephone, Fata, Morgana, Ereshkigal,
Arianhrod, Durga, Inanna, Tiamat, and by a million,
million other names:

Hear me child, and know Me for who I am.
I have been with you since you were born, and I
will stay with you until you return to me at the
final dusk.

I am the passionate and seductive lover who
inspires the poet to dream. I am the one who
calls to you at the end of your journey. After
the day is done, My children find their blessed
rest in my embrace.

I am the womb from which all things are born. I am
the shadowy, still tomb; all things must come to
me and bare their breasts to die and be reborn to the whole.

I am the Sorceress that will not be ruled, the Weaver
of Time, the Teacher of Mysteries. I snip the threads
that bring my children home to me. I slit the throats
of the cruel and drink the blood of the heartless.

Swallow your fear and come to me, and you will discover
true beauty, strength, and courage. I am the fury which
rips the flesh from injustice. I am the glowing forge
that transforms your inner demons into tools of power.

Open yourself to my embrace and overcome.

I am the glinting sword that protects you from harm. I am
the crucible in which all the aspects of yourself merge
together in a rainbow of union. I am the velvet depths of
the night sky, the swirling mists of midnight, shrouded in
mystery. I am the chrysalis in which you will face that which
terrifies you and from which you will blossom forth, vibrant
and renewed.

Seek me at the crossroads, and you shall be transformed,
for once you look upon my face, there is no return. I am
the fire that kisses the shackles away. I am the cauldron
in which all opposites grow to know each other in Truth. I
am the web which connects all things. I am the Healer of
all wounds, the Warrior who rights all wrongs in their Time.

I make the weak strong. I make the arrogant humble. I
raise up the oppressed and empower the disenfranchised. I
am Justice tempered with Mercy. Most importantly, child,
I am you. I am part of you, and I am within you.

Seek Me within and without, and you will be strong. Know me.
Venture into the dark so that you may awaken to balance,
illumination, and wholeness. Take my Love with you
everywhere and find the Power within to be who you wish.

Hecate's Promise
By Hania Trzaskowski

Through seething minds eye,
I hear the deepest chasms of the self
calling to the land that Hecate -
in all her mystified splendor -
has prepared for me.

Hecate, Hecate
I die to be reborn today

Hecate, Hecate,
I dissolve my pearls in the vinegar of ego's tears -
to evaporate the post climactic recumbent acid vapours
with the New dawns sun -
and allow the wisdom pearls to coagulate as moulded anew
to new resolve new understanding.

Birthed wisdom from your dark and unforeseen womb
that I will tommorow feed with my own bounteous bosom
that will be gifted
To feed the cuts and thorns, to grow into matured wisdom.

Hecate - Splendid Lady of the Beast that guards the
Journey's entrance
Guide me through with your torch of fears and risk -
allow me to die in your welcoming arms
and be rebirthed from the shelter of your womb -
lost and cold -
So that I may learn how to nourish myself from my own
mistakes and times of triumph

Hecate - Hecate
I die to be reborn today

Bring forth the delight and pleasure of the journey,
to lesson the blows of actualities forked tongue
Let the spirit rise and tremble - giving force to shatter
with vibrancy the protective walls that build o'er
So that I may build a palace in it's stead

Hecate, Hecate
I die to be reborn today

To dissolve the solid, and solidify the dissolved.
The allow polarities rock and waters to become my bone and blood.
