Like the Wiccan Tradition generally, the Charge of the Goddess draws from a number of sources. Although the ‘Lift Up the Veil’ charge which is found in some early Books of Shadows was probably from around 1948 or 1949; it is the subsequent charge, commonly called the Charge of the Goddess, which is the best known today.
The Lift Up the Veil charge was clearly pre-Valiente, as she was not initiated until 1952/3. Valiente claimed that she rewrote the Lift Up the Veil charge to produce the Charge of the Goddess, removing Crowley’s influence, as she put it, “cutting out the Crowleyanity as much as I could” However, as you will discover this is simply not true, as most of the material used in the Charge of the Goddess draws from material published in The Aradia, Gospel of the Witches by Charles Leland and from a variety of original works by Aleister Crowley – with a few additions from the Golden Dawn and Christian liturgy.
