I’ve noticed that most Reconstructionist religions have lists of virtues that can serve as guidelines for the behavior of the individual practitioner (and, in some cases, the community as a whole). Asatru has the Nine Noble Virtues, Hellenismos has the Delphic Maxims and Tenets of Solon, Kemetics have principles of upholding Ma’at…I think I can add Wicca into the mix as well, though it’s not (always? really?) reconstructionism – but they have the Rede.
