She is summer, the time of ripening of all living things. She is re-creation of life and the creation of universal bodies.She is the high point, or peak, of all cycles. The Mother is the day, lustiness, adulthood/motherhood, and reproduction. Her color is traditionally red, which represents blood or the life force. And as the Crone she is the waning moon. Other names for her are the Terrible Mother, the Hag, the Dark Mother, or the Wise One. She is Winter, the time of death or the end of all cycles. She is the darkness, where all life rests before rebirth. The Crone is the night, the abyss, menopause, advancement of age, wisdom, the gateway to death, and reincarnation. Her colors are black and dark blue, which represents darkness or the absorber of all light.
The Charge of the Goddess
Listen to the words of the Great Mother ; She who of old was also called among men Artemis , Astrate , Athene , Dione , Melusine , Aphrodite , Cerriden , Dana , Arianrod , Isis , Brid and by many other names :
"Whenever ye have need of anything , once in the month , and better it be when the moon is full , then shall ye assemble in some secret place and adore the spirit of me , who am Queen of all witches . There shall ye assemble , ye who are fain to learn all sorcery , yet have not won it's deepest secrets ; to these will I teach things that are yet unknown . An ye shall be free from slavery ; and as a sign that ye really be 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 also is joy on earth ; for my law is love unto all beings . 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 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 sacrifice ; for behold , I am the mother of all living , and my love is poured out upon the earth ."
The Charge of the Star Goddess
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 universe.
"I who am the beauty of the green earth , and the white moon among the stars , 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 preceed , and unto me all things must return ; and before my face , beloved of gods and of all men , let thine innermost 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 , honour and humility , mirth and reverence within you . And thou knowest the mystery ; that if that which thou seekest thou finest not within thee , then thou wilt never find it without thee . For behold , I have been with thee from the beginning ; and I am that which is attained at the end of desire.

blossom forth, vibrant and renewed. Seek me at the crossroads, and you shall be transformed

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.
