Charge of the Autumn Goddess

I am the Waning Moon, the Goddess who is fading from the land.
In the Springtime I sought my Lord and mated with him beneath the trees and stars.
At Bealtaine I wed my Lord beneath the first blossoms of the hawthorn tree.
And in the Summertime I ripened the apples in the orchards and the fruit grew round and strong like the seed within my womb.
At the corn harvest I cut down my Lord, that by his death our people might be fed.
And now in the Autumn time I descend beneath the Earth
To dwell with my Lord in his dark kingdom until our child is born.
At the Winter Solstice I will bring forth the child and renew your hope
and at Imbolg I myself will return to renew the land.

I leave you, but I return to you ....

Great Goddess Isis

Exhortation of Isis

You are She in the dust of whose feet is the hosts of Heaven,
Whose body encircles the Universe,
Who turns the Earth in its orb,
Who gives light to the Sun,
Who rules the World.

You tread death underfoot.
To Thee, the stars are responsive,
To Thee the seasons turn and the Gods rejoice
And the elements are in subjugation.

You are She that is the natural Mother of all things,
Mistress and governor of all elements,
The initial progeny of worlds,
Chief of Divine powers,
Queen of Heaven,
Principle of all the Gods celestial and the light of Goddesses.

At Your will are disposed the planets of the air,
The wholesome winds of the seas
And the silences of the unseen world.
