Love Her beautiful feet in this pic!

Mid-week mini-post!

I so enjoyed talking with Bridget Engels of the Oracle of Luna podcast about (I’m sure you are all so very, very surprised) Our Lady Isis. The podcast is available now, if you’d like to have a listen and join our chat.

Bridget comments, “Here we explore this most worshiped and ancient of Egyptian Goddesses. We discuss Isis’ history and Her many aspects that have kept Her relevant for centuries and well into the future. As an all encompassing cosmic Goddess, Isis has many divine and human aspects worthy of connecting and developing a sacred devotional relationship with. Isidora has been a devotee to the Goddess Isis for over 25 years. Her phenomenal book will open the doors of your mind and spirit to discover and become enlightened yourself to Isis’ immense power and wisdom!”

Dee Had the Ethiopic Book of Enoch

Ananael (The Secrets of Wisdom)

I was just watching an episode of Angela’s Symposium:

In this, she discusses the Book of Enoch (specifically 1Enoch, or the “Ethiopic Book of Enoch) and its influence on John Dee. This is something I explore in depth in my books (I think especially in The Angelical Language, Vol I). In case you are not familiar, I discuss in that work how the mythos of 1Enoch became the basis for Dee’s Enochian system. However, as that text was considered long-lost in Dee’s time (it wouldn’t be re-discovered until the 17th century), I had always assumed the story had simply survived orally until it reached Dee.

But I was wrong! At the time I published, I was not aware of a man named Guillaume Postel (d. 1581 – the year before Dee began his angelic workings). Dee knew Guillaume, and Guillaume actually had a copy of the Ethiopic Book of Enoch!

Is tradition important in the worship of Isis?

Isiopolis

Part of my shrine for Her; traditional-ish

As is so often the case, it depends on who you ask.

Folks who are trying to reconstruct a form of ancient practice will, of course, find it very important. Others who are attracted to Isis, but not necessarily the entire ancient Egyptian milieu, might find it less so.

For me, there isn’t a yes-or-no answer to this question; rather, there’s a yes-and-no answer.

Yes, Tradition is Very Important

Without tradition, where do we even begin to think about Isis? How can we know Who She is for us if we don’t know Who She was for those who went before us? Without tradition, we have nowhere to begin as we try to come into relationship with Her. Without a knowledge of the symbols traditionally associated with Her, the stories traditionally told about Her (at least the ones of which we…

How Astrology Works

Ananael (The Secrets of Wisdom)

I was recently asked if I know how astrology works. That is, they wanted to know if I believed the Planets emit “beams” (aka Rays) that project to the Earth, or something of the sort. (An idea borrowed heavily from Theosophy and poor books like the Kybalion, but not entirely absent from older astrology texts.)

To be certain, the history of astrology is no small study. It was an ancient art even by the time Egyptians and Sumerians began to keep the first written records. And, you’ll find countless theories (both modern and ancient) about how it all works. I am in not here to settle the matter – just to share what I know (in general and briefly) about its history, and my idea of how astrology “works.”

To vastly oversimplify a complex subject: the earliest astrologies (like in Egypt) focused on the seasons. It’s rather intuitive, frankly. The…

Inanna, Inanna, Inanna!

Isiopolis

Nothing new from me today. Just got back from our Fall EQ festival where we had ritual theatre of the whole story of Inanna’s descent (our ritual actors were AHmazing!), trance dancing, wow workshops, SO many offerings, SO much chanting. I hope your equinox was just as wonderful. I’m gonna take a nap.

The main altar with our Owl-faced Goddess with Her eagle-faced Guardians. A friend and I painted two sets of these Guardians. Oh, and the Guardian banners are 6 feet tall, so you can see how big the sacred image of Inanna is!

Immortality – An Egyptian Dream

The Egyptians believed Pharaoh to be a god on earth who after his death would fly up to heaven and unite with the sun, his father. After the collapse of the Old Kingdom, this idea of royal immortality became accessible for non-royal persons but dependent on justification before a divine tribunal, the judgment of the dead. Immortality became a question, not of royalty but of morals. Jan Assmann, Professor Emeritus of Egyptology, University of Heidelberg, explores the origins and evolution of these concepts.

VENUS opposite Neptune, TikTok Conspiracies, September 24

Tara Greene,Tarot Reader, Astrology Psychic

VENUS opposite Neptune, Conspiracy Theories abound.

A TIKTOK story has gone viral about a SOLAR FLARE to hit the earth on September 24th. A supposed warning by a German Chancellor?

I made a TIKTOK Video its also on my Youtube channel addressing this. https://youtu.be/g2ho7PiuA8g?t=1

VENUS in Virgo OPPOSITE NEPTUNE in PISCES

This aspect repeats every year. What was your fantasy lover, disillusions all about? Cryptocurrency and other financial losses are tied to this.

Other dates August 14, 2016, September 28,2017, July 24,2018, September 4th, 2019,October 18, 2020, August 9, 2021, and next is November 3, 2023.

Venus was born from the Ocean which is Neptune’s domain. So in manyways,this is a nice reconnectionto Venus, and all our origins in the oceans, in the seas in the salty amniotic fluid of our mother’s wombs. We need to take action to protect our oceans the world’s water supplies and all sea life.

Let’s Explore The Holy Responsibility Of Archangel

Archangels

It’s quite reassuring to know that you’ve got your support team up in heaven. Yes, you read that right – you have your own support team. The lead of the team is the Lord. And His subordinates, who are also in this team, include Archangels, Guardian Angels, and spiritual masters. Basically, these masters are spiritual beings who’ve lived on the Earth. Besides, your support team may even include the souls of your loved ones who’ve passed away.

Most importantly, whenever you pray to the Lord, He’ll receive your prayers through this support team only.

Nine out of ten times, you’ll pray to the Lord whenever a challenge daunts you. But, sometimes, you may even call upon the support team that the Lord has established for you. Yes, you may call upon Archangels, who’ll help you under some circumstances. So, whenever you call upon Archangels, you’ll call for help to the appointed specialists of the Lord. Like everyone else in the support team, Archangels have some gifts that the Lord has bestowed on them. And that’s why Archangels always use these divine gifts to help people like you make better decisions and lead happy life.

In this explainer, we’re going to focus on one major component of your support team – Archangels. This explainer will shed light on the divine responsibility of Archangels in your life. But before that, let’s get to know who’s an Archangel.

Who’s An Archangel?

Archangels exist. If you have faith in them, then the presence of these heavenly beings will be the eternal truth for you. On top of that, the presence of Archangels is even confirmed in the Bible. Archangels are incorporeal beings, and they’re perfect. The perfection of Archangels is only because of the fact that the Lord has created them.

Archangels have been with you since the dawn of time. They’re the Lord’s messengers and servants. Not even for a single moment, Archangels have ceased singing the praises of the Lord. Because of that reason, Archangels always rush at His command. Every Archangel belongs to the high spiritual rank. The term “Archangel” is always associated with Abrahamic religions. Nonetheless, beings who are familiar with Archangels are found in numerous religious texts and traditions.

Now that you know a thing or two about Archangels, let’s discuss their sole responsibility.

The Divine Role Of Archangels

The chief responsibility of an Archangel is managing life on this planet. This management basically comprises the creation and nurturing of life paths, souls, and the divine order in the natural world. Besides, there are many Archangels – and everyone has their own areas of expertise.

When all Archangels come together to serve humanity, they bring together their expertise. And this conjunction of angelic expertise delivers the best outcomes. It’s needless to mention that these outcomes align well with God’s master plan.

To cut a long story short, Archangels exist so that they can assist humanity towards building a better tomorrow. These Archangels use their expertise and divine capabilities to help you live your life to the fullest. That’s why more and more people want to call these Archangels for help time and time again.

Summing It Up

Now, you know who an Archangel is. Besides, you even know the divine role of Archangels. So, if you’re stuck in a deadlock and need divine help, then Archangels will rush to serve you. The only thing is, you have to pray to Archangels without fail.

The Adma Iset: A Ritual of Offering to Isis

Isiopolis

I often find it easier to keep up my spiritual practice when I have something “set,” something specific to do. Like a small ritual that I’ve pretty much got memorized. You, too? If so, then today I’d like to offer you a just such a small ritual. This one is an offering rite. (If you have my Offering to Isis, a version of it is in there. But since I hear those are going for stupid out-of-print prices, here’s a version you can use, and of course, adapt, as you choose. Offering will be republished. I’ll let you know when.)

Adma is one of the (many) Egyptian words for an offering rite. I just liked the sound of this one compared to some of the others, so I adopted it. The ritual is loosely based on Egyptian temple rites, but adapted for a single person instead of a temple-full…

Wednesday Is For Mercury and Thoth The Atlantean

“The matter first of metals Mercury

A moisture is which wetteth not the hand

Yet flows, and therefore is named water dry,

The vulgar is at every one’s command,

But this is not the water we desire,

For in our water is our secret fire.

This Matter while its life it did retain,

Was apt all metals e’en to procreate,

The life when gone, then dead it doth remain

Till a new soul shall it reanimate.

This Matter is to metals all of kin

All which do hide a Mercury within.

He then who knows the parts of Mercury

And can it superfluities decrease

And with true sulfur it can vivify;

For dead it is, though, fluent, he with east

May gold unlock and after recongeal

Both to an Essence which all griefs can heal.

Lo! Here a spring of wealth, a Tree of Life,

No wealth so great, no sickness here is rife,

Here in a map, thou seest the creatures all

Abridged, and reduced to their perfection.

Here thou beholdest in a Subject Small,

From this world’s misery a full protection.

O Mercury, you wonder of the world!

How strange thy nature is and how compact!

A body dost possess which doth enfold

A Spirit inexpressible to act,

Our mysteries; this only we desire,

This is our water, this our secret fire.

For Argent Vive is gold essential

Only unripe, which, if thou canst prepare

By art, it gives the secret menstrual:

The mother of our Stone which is so rare.

Our oil, our unguent, and our marchasite;

Which we do name also our fountain bright.

O crystal fountain! Which with fourfold spring

Rubs down the valleys with its pearly drops

Distilling, with which our noble king

Is washed and carried to the mountain tops,

Where he the virtue of the Heavens receives,

Which never after him, when fixed, leaves.

This our May-dew which our earth doth move

To bring forth fruit, which fruit is perfect gold:

This is our Eve, whom Adam doth so love,

That in her arms his soul, stange to be told,

He doth receive, who erst as dead was seen,

And quickened first appears in colours green.

How this? Even thus, in Saturn there is hid

A soul immortal which in prison lies,

Untie its fetters, which do it forbid

To sight for to appear, then shall arise

A Vapour shining, like pearl orient,

Which is our Moon and sparkling Firmament.”

"The Ethiopians, Africans, and Egyptians know Me by My true name of Queen Isis."
The Ethiopians, Africans, and Egyptians know Me by My true name of Queen Isis.

Lucius is—still—an ass.

He had been messin’ where he shouldna been messin’, and he had been turned, quite literally (or perhaps literarily), into a donkey.

The ancient writer Apuleius’ story about Lucius, called The Golden Ass, culminates in Lucius’ initiation into the Mysteries of Isis. It is She Who saves him from his asinine state. But before that, we find Lucius addressing desperate prayers to the Goddess in the moon. He is answered by an epiphany of Isis, Who gives an aretalogy describing Her powers and names. In part of it, She says,

But the Ethiopians who are illuminated by the first rays of the Sun God as He is born every day, together with the Africans and the Egyptians who excel through having the original doctrine, honor Me with My distinctive rites and give…

Raphael – Secret Chief of the Golden Dawn

Ananael (The Secrets of Wisdom)

Archangel Raphel

Greetings Golden Dawnophiles!

Recently, I offered the rather curious revelation that the Golden Dawn Secret Chiefs are, in fact, the spirits, angels and archangels that we call upon in our tradition.  You may have found it strange, too, that I went so far as to name one archangel in particular – Raphael – as the chief Secret Chief of the Order.  Rather than simply tossing such an assertion out into cyberspace and expecting you to take it on faith, I think I should share with you an important gem on the subject from the Order’s written history.

As Golden Dawn historians will tell you, Mathers’ primary contact among the Secret Chiefs was known by the name Frater “Lux e Tenebris” – or “Light out of Darkness.”  Now, everyone take out your copy of R.A. Gilbert’s The Golden Dawn Scrapbook, and open it to pages 37-39.  There you will find…

Lamens of the Golden Dawn, Part 1

For decades, the designs on the Lamens worn by the Officers in Golden Dawn ceremonies has largely been taken for granted, with the vast majority of people relying on or replicating the forms given in Israel Regardie’s The Golden Dawn, or other books.
The original source material shows some subtle, and not so subtle, differences, which I will highlight in this series of articles.  […]
