When is it appropriate to recite the Charge of the Goddess?

Is is supposed to be recited during an Esbat? I have read somewhere that the purpose of the Charge of the Goddess is only revealed to initiated Wiccans (Traditional, not Eclectic). Any information on this?

  1. According to Fredric Lamond, the Charge was originally meant to be read during the Drawing Down the Moon ritual if the High Priestess did not, in fact, channel the Goddess (which is the goal of said ritual).

    Lamond was a member of Gardner’s own coven. He discusses this in “50 Years of Wicca.”
