Voice Of Adjuration - Charge Of The Goddess

Vayikra on Shabbat Sabbat Ostara

וְנֶפֶשׁ כִּי-תֶחֱטָא, וְשָׁמְעָה קוֹל אָלָה, וְהוּא עֵד, אוֹ רָאָה אוֹ יָדָע; אִם-לוֹא יַגִּיד, וְנָשָׂא עֲו‍ֹנוֹ
And if any one sin, in that he heareth the voice of adjuration, he being a witness, whether he hath seen or known, if he does not utter it, then he shall bear his iniquity ... Vayikra 5:1

וְשָׁמְעָה קוֹל אָלָה

Known in Torah as the Voice of Adjuration and in Witchcraft as the Charge of the Goddess, both refer to one and the same sacred oath, as dreamt this past week in The Immortals and elucidated in Maāt Kheru, True Voice.

Charge of the Goddess
original ritual poem written by Myfanwy and inspired by Goddess
on this Shabbat Sabbat Ostara
for this upcoming Full Raven Moon Erev Pesach Esbat ritual

I hear
the Voice of Adjuration
She of old, a Witch among Witches, Who is Known
Namelessly by a feast of Names
who dance among the stars myriad
in sacred rhythm with the Lady's moon
who sings upon the earth, caressing chords yet unknown
winding deliciously through the secret places
deeply deep within a most lovely lovely Night
breathing the Soul of Life into a Universe
with artistry, She crafts
Her glorious Multiverse, a myriad myriads
Being the beginning and end of All Desire
brewing up in Beauty every Mystery
in which the Heart Rejoices, the Soul finds Pleasure,
and with which the tongue of flesh tastes Immortality,
I witness True
