Perusing through Yahoo Answers (one of my time-wasting hobbies) I happened upon the question by a Christian, wondering what ‘blessed be’ meant. Through the replies (some of which were pagan) they didn’t seem to really know, and so I figured I’d include a post on the topic.
Blessed be thy feet, which have brought thee in these ways,
Blessed be thy knees, that shall kneel at the sacred altar,
Blessed be thy womb, without which we would not be,
Blessed be thy breasts, formed in beauty,
Blessed be thy lips, that shall utter the Sacred Names of the gods.
You often find pagans and Wiccans alike use the phrase as a term of goodwill, wishing you good blessings in your life.
Some fun graphics I’ve found;
