Happy Birthday, Isis!

Here in Portland, Oregon, Sirius will have its heliacal rising this coming Tuesday at about 4:30 a.m. PDT. (I wrote about this in a previous post.) The beautiful star’s rise will mark the first day of the new year—in ancient Egyptian terms.

Since Isis was born on the fourth of the five epigominal days that stood between the end of the old year and the beginning of the new, today would be Her birthday;  dark sister Nephthys comes forth on Monday, followed by the diamond-light glory of the rise of the brightest star in the sky, Sirius (Sothis, in Greek; Sopdet in Egyptian), on Tuesday.

So Happy Birthday, Isis! How many thousands of years old are You? (The whole question of whether or not Deities are born is the subject for another post, methinks.) But today, I will celebrate Her birthday by re-consecrating my sacred images of the Goddess. I’ll be using a modified (that is, shortened) version of “Enlivening the Divine Image” from Isis Magic, and I’m going to start right after I post this…

    Ironically it’s my physical mothers birthday simutaneously with my spiritual mother.
    I’ll follow your lead. Yesterday I presented Isian yoga & meditation to the public at a local Pagan Pride Day celebration.
    Isis Is alive & in the hearts of her children still.
    As always I offer my,
    Love
    Thanks
    Devotion

    To you as well Sister,
    Sincerely,
    James

  2. Wonderful work, Isidorus! I’ll be doing something for Pagan Pride here, too…which reminds me. I’d better figure out what 😉 Eeek!

  3. Happy Birthday, my Divine Mother!
