The Threefold Dark Charge of the Queens

Parallel to the Threefold Charge of Light and Fire, this Charge is meant to be given by a woman, a man, and a non-binary/mxgender person during the dark time of the year.

Hear ye the words...hear ye the words...hear ye the words
Of the God/dess/x
The pulse of whose heart
Runs through your veins
Whose blood is the beginning (and end) of life

I am the dark velvet of midnight’s quiet
And the grace of movement in darkness
And the enormity of all you imagine when there is no limit
And the power of the scythe

Call unto your soul, arise and come unto Me!
For I am the Queen of the darkest hour
Which gives knowledge of all ends
From Me all beings are born
and unto Me they return again and again

Before Me, beloved of all, let your divine innermost self
Be exalted in the presence of Divine glory

Let my worship be in the heart that rejoices, for behold:
All acts of love and pleasure are my rituals

Therefore, let there be beauty and strength, honor and pride, power and compassion, mirth and reverence among you

And those of you who seek to know Me, know this: That all your seeking and yearning shall avail you not, unless you know the Mystery.
If that which you seek, you find not Here, you shall never find it. For behold, I have been with you from the beginning and I am unfolding in your soul at this very moment

The mxgender Priestxes of
Come As You Are Pagan Congregation invite people of any and all genders — or none — to join us in honoring our beloved transcestors and ansxtors, especially those whose lives ended in violence. We will send them on their way on a wave of rainbow love and peace. We will be calling on Paneros; All Love, the Metagender deity of the Tetrad++ pantheon, to guide us in smashing the invisible barriers that keep us from love. You are invited to bring ancestral items and images to charge on the altar, and a treat to share for cakes and ale after we open the circle.

Our Mission:
The Rainbow Moon Circle is a safe and sacred space for all to explore the spectra of gender and identity. We honor the holistic experience of self-determined identity and its infinite intersections. We celebrate the glittering prism of Divine existence that is powerful, delightful, enthusiastic, playful, transformative, magickal, compassionate, and reverent. Live the Spectra!
