The Star Goddess Invocation was originally written by Doreen Valiente. I first learned a modernized version that was printed in the old Green Egg. When Our Lady of TriVia Coven and Circle of the Trembling Earth did a joint open ritual at Southern Renaissance Pleasure Faire at a Beltaine Full Moon in (I think) 1983, I re-read the Star Goddess Invocation and came up with this Aspecting so that the Invocation was spoken by three priestess invoking the Triple Goddess. It felt quite potent to invoke this way! -EDL

am the Beauty of the Green Earth
And the White Moon among the Sars
And the Mystery of the Waters
And the Desire of Human Hearts.
Call unto your Soul
Arise and come
For I am the Soul of Nature
that gives Life to the Universe
From Me all things proceed
And unto Me all things must return.
Before My face, Beloved
Let your divine innermost Soul be enfolded
In the Rapture of the Infinite.
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
Power and Compassion,
Honor and Humility,
Mirth and Reverence among you.
you who think to seek Me
Know that your seeking and yearning will avail you naught, unless you know the Mystery:
That if that which you seek, you find not within you, you will never find it without.
Behold! I have been with you from the Beginning
And I am That which is attained at the End of Desire.
