Hear now the words of the Witches, The secrets we hid in the night, When dark was our destiny's pathway, That now we bring forth into light.
Mysterious water and fire, The Earth and the wide-ranging air, By hidden quintessence we know them, And will and keep silent and dare. The birth and rebirth of all nature, The passing of winter and spring, We share with the life universal, Rejoice in the magical ring.
Doreen Valiente - Charge of the Goddess
When day-time and night-time are equal, When sun is at greatest and least, The four Lesser Sabbats are summoned, Again witches gather in feast. Thirteen silver moons in a year are, Thirteen is the covens array. Thirteen times as Esbat make merry, For each golden year and a day. The power was passed down the ages, Each time between woman and man, Each century unto the other, Ere time and the ages began. When drawn is the magical circle, By sword or athame or power, Its compass between the two worlds lies, In Land of the Shades for that hour.
The world has no right then to know it, And world of beyond will tell naught, The oldest of Gods are invoked there, The Great Work of magic is wrought. For two are the mystical pillars, That stand at the gate of the shrine, And two are the powers of nature, The forms and the forces divine. The dark and the light in succession, The opposites each unto each, Shown forth as a God and a Goddess, Of this did our ancestors teach.
Doreen Valiente Witchcraft for Tomorrow
By day he's the King of the Woodland, The dweller in green forest glades. She is youthful or old as she pleases, She sails the torn clouds in her barque, The bright silver lady of midnight, The crone who weaves spells in the dark. The master and mistress of magic, They dwell in the deeps of the mind, Immortal and ever-renewing, With power to free or to bind. Eight words the Witches' Creed fulfil: If it harms none, do what you will! Oh, I have been beyond the town, Where nightshade black and mandrake grow, And I have heard and I have seen What righteous folk would fear to know!
For I have heard, at still midnight, Upon the hilltop far, forlorn, With note that echoed through the dark, The winding of the heathen horn. We drank the wine, and broke the bread, And ate it in the Old One's name.
We linked our hands to make the ring, And laughed and leaped the Sabbat game. Oh, little do the townsfolk reck, When dull they lie within their bed! Beyond the streets, beneath the stars, A merry round the witches tread!
And round and round the circle spun, Until the gates swung wide ajar, That bar the boundaries of the earth From faery realms that shine afar. Oh, I have been and I have seen In magic worlds of Otherwhere.
For all this world may praise or blame, For ban or blessing nought I care. For I have been beyond the town, Where meadowsweet and roses grow, And there such music did I hear As worldly-righteous never know. Come ye as the spell is made. Chant the spell and be it done.
The holly and the ivy When they are both full grown, Of all the trees that are in the wood, The holly bears the crown. Oh, the rising of the sun And the running of the deer, The playing of the merry organ, Sweet singing in the choir,.
Light on Yoga: The Bible of Modern Yoga
The holly bears a berry And blood-red is its hue, And when the Sun is newly born, It maketh all things new. The holly bears a leaf That is for ever green, And when the Sun is newly born, Let love and joy be seen.
The holly and the ivy The mistletoe entwine, And when the Sun is newly born, Be joy to thee and thine. On, the rising of the Sun And the running of the deer, The playing of the merry organ, Sweet singing in the choir. To think that you are gone, over the crest of the hills, As the Moon passed from her fullness, riding the sky, And the White Mare took you with her.
To think that we will wait another life To drink the wine from the horns and leap the fire. Farewell from this world, but not from the Circle.
That place that is between the worlds Shall hold return in due time. Nothing is lost. The half of a fruit from the tree of Avalon Shall be our reminder, among the fallen leaves This life treads underfoot.
Log In Sign Up. Review of Philip Heselton's "Doreen Valiente: Witch" Doreen Valiente Foundation, Ethan Doyle White.
Witch Nottingham, UK: Born in the southern English county of Surrey, Valiente began practicing magic as a child and later became acquainted with Gardner after learning of him from a magazine arti- cle.
Being initiated into his Gardnerian tradition of Wicca at Mid- summer , Valiente subsequently became the high priestess of his Bricket Wood coven, during which time she rewrote much of the ritual liturgies and poems contained within his Book of Shad- ows. Although she broke from him in , she retained her belief in Wicca and involved herself in the traditions of rivals like Raymond Howard and Robert Cochrane.
Valiente Doreen. An ABC of Witchcraft Past and Present
From the early s through to the late s she published a series of five books on Wicca, through which she sought to publicize the faith to a far wider audience. Becoming a practicing Wiccan, he later changed his research direction and began to explore the early origins of his faith, establishing himself as one of the foremost fig- ures in this field. His investigations into the life of Gardner and the putative New Forest coven—the existence of which has been central to many of his arguments—has been published in the form of Wiccan Roots Capall Bann, , Gerald Gardner and the Cauldron of Inspiration Capall Bann, and Witchfather: Review of academics operating in contemporary Pagan studies.
Heselton is therefore a sympathetic biographer, both to Valiente and to the belief system to which she devoted herself. However, as with his previous work on Gardner this is not mere hagiography, and he has not shied away from some of the more controversial aspects of her life. Witch Octagon Press, , the idea behind Doreen Valiente: Witch was not originally conceived by Heselton.
Rather, the volume was specially commissioned by John Belham-Payne — for publication through his own Doreen Valiente Foundation, estab- lished in It is only fitting therefore that this book opens with an introduc- tion from Belham-Payne himself.
It should be stressed that this is not an academic biography, and nor does it pretend to be. It is clearly aimed at a popular primar- ily Wiccan audience, with short paragraphs and a lack of scholarly jargon helping to make this a very easy read.
While it would there- fore be unfair to assess it by the same criteria as one would judge an academic publication, here I shall be primarily concerned with its utility for those involved in the field of contemporary Pagan studies. Indeed, many of the rev- elations that Heselton has brought forth are quite fascinating. He reveals, for instance, that during the Second World War, Valiente was working as a translator at the code-breaking center of Bletch- ley Park As Heselton points out, Valiente came to dis- associate herself with these groups as she became better acquainted with their ideas; however, he also proffers the interesting sugges- tion that she may have joined such groups at the bequest of the Brit- ish intelligence services — How this came to be is left a perplexing mystery.
Equally frustrating for scholars will be the sparse and inconsistent use of referencing throughout many of its chapters.Gardner had lent a ritual sword which he owned to the Druids, who placed it within the monument's Heel Stone during their rite. Seagull Designs Doreen Valiente. Witchtopia Realm.
