The Wiccan Rede (short form)

The Rede is the closest thing in Wicca to being a law. The rede is a testament to what we
stand for. The short form is as follows:

Abide the Wiccan law ye must
In perfect love and perfect trust.
Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill
“An’ it harm none, do as ye will.”
And ever mind the rule of three
What ye send out comes back to thee.
Follow this with mind and heart
And merry ye meet and merry ye part.
In essence, the law is to love and trust the Craft. Do what you will, as long as you harm no
one, no matter how evil they may seem. Fate will take care of them and it is no concern of
yours. Never do harm to others. Whatever you do to or for others will come back to you
threefold. If you curse or harm someone, you will receive bad luck thrice as bad as you have
made it for them. If you help others, it will also come back to you threefold. You can call this
Karma if you like.
