I'm not sure how to describe the Goddess to you. She is a part of everything and She is everywhere. She is the Earth in which we live. She is the air in which we breathe. She is the food that we eat, the water we drink and the animals we love. Every woman has the Goddess in her. Every man has the Goddess in him. Our bodies are her temples. Our joys, tears, anger, love, hate, fear, peace, passion and desire are Her emotions. When you look into the mirror it is Her face staring back at you.

Charge of the Goddess
Traditional by Doreen Valiente, as adapted by Starhawk
Listen to the words of the Great Mother, Who of old was called Artemis, Astarte, Dione, Melusine, Aphrodite, Cerridwen, Diana, Arionrhod, Brigid, and by many other names:
you have need of anything, once a month, and better it be when the moon
is full, you shall assemble in some secret place and adore the spirit
of Me Who is Queen of all the Wise.
My law is love is unto all beings. Mine is the secret that opens the door
of youth, and Mine is the cup of wine of life that is the cauldron of
Cerridwen, that is the holy grail of immortality.
Nor do I demand aught of sacrifice, for behold, I am the Mother of all things and My love is poured out upon the earth.
Hear the words of the Star Goddess, the dust of Whose feet are the hosts of Heaven, whose body encircles the universe:
I Who am the beauty of the green earth and the white moon among the stars and the mysteries of the waters, I call upon your soul to arise and come unto me.
I am the soul of nature that gives life to the universe.
Me all things proceed and unto Me they must return.
