    The Long form of the REDE:

    Bide ye Wiccan laws ye must,

    in perfect love and perfect trust.

    Live and let live, fairly take and fairly give.

    Form the circle thrice about, to keep all evil spirits out.

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

    Soft of eye, light of touch, speak ye little, listen much.

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

    Widdershins go by the waning moon, chanting out ye Baneful Rune.

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

    When the moon rides at her peak, then ye 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 may have no rest.

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

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

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

    When the wheel begins to turn, soon ye Beltaine fire’ll burn.

    When the wheel hath turned to Yule, light the log the Horned One rules.

    Heed ye flower, bush and tree, by the Lady blessed be.

    Where the rippling waters flow, cast a stone and truth ye’ll know.

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

    With a fool no season spend, nor be counted as his friend.

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

    Mind ye threefold law ye should, three times bad and three times good.

    When misfortune is anow, wear the blue star upon thy brow.

    True in love ye must ever be, lest thy love be false to thee.

    In these eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill,

    ‘An ye harm none, do what ye will.


    The rede is a poem, but most wiccans see it as the basis for the wiccan religion.


    To answer the what do pagans believe question, for those who have the same question and havent found the answer, let me put in my two cents.

    Paganism is defined by the Christian church as anyone who is not Christian, Jewish, or Muslim. So considering that there are plenty of beliefs that are not these things, the term pagan is overly broad. Most of us on this board, from what I've seen, are Wiccan, which is one form of paganism baised on freemason, Golden Dawn, and ceremonial magic (basied on Celtic information) beliefs, reformed and made public durring the 1950's by three main people, Gerald Gardner (who is credited with starting modern wicca), Aleister Crawley (Golden Dawn), and Alex Sanders (who stated Alexandrian wicca) with the help of Doreen Valiente and a score or so of others.

    A few personal pet peeves:
    Anyone who claims to be a decedant from a druid, escpecially if they are not irish, scottish, or british, but also because as far as we know, druids were celibate. Ditto on those who cant understand that druids were only the preist of Celts and not two different tribes.
    Anyone who tries to claim they are a hereditary witch and therefore somehow more knowledgable or powerful, witchcraft and/or wicca is no more hereditary than Cathlocism.
    Any solitary claiming to be Gardainian or Alexandrian these are coven forms of wicca.
