Goddess in the present tense…dammit

Isiopolis

An Isis altar at The Hallows

I do not often rant on this blog, as those of you who have been reading along well know. But you are about to read one. Okay, a tiny one. Sorry. Every now and then, this little rant gets kicked off by reading other writers…people who actually DO have a relationship with their Deities and who yet often do not use the present tense when speaking or writing about their Deities. Okay, so now you see where this is going.

If you’ve read Isis Magic or Offering to Isis, you may have noticed that—except when something actually is in the past—I always refer to the Goddess in present tense. In fact, I have been very, very, very, very conscious of doing so.

Because, you see, She IS.

She’s is not a Being Who was but is no more. She is not “just a myth,” some silly old…

Scripts | The Oklahoma Runestone

In the 1830’s, soon after the forced removal of aboriginal tribes into Indian Territory, Chocktaw hunters roaming vast, vacant, forested hills came upon the mammoth runestone in an idyllic vale of Poteau, Mt.  It had stood immemorially hidden in its remote ravine.  Gloria Farley first hiked to it in 1928 when no path yet led the two miles uphill from her home town, Heavener, Oklahoma.  […]

The Sistrum of Isis

Isiopolis

Hello, Isiacs! I’d like to share with you a beautiful double sistrum that one of our sisters discovered in a market in Baja. It is lovely and I’ll bet it sounds wonderful. Here’s the pic:

Why didn’t I think of that? A double sistrum! Thank you, Agnes. Here’s a repeat post about the sistrum and how this magical musical instrument can shake things up.

A priestess with the naos style of sistrum

In Isis Magic, one of the key elemental implements of the priestess of Isis is the sistrum. It is one of several types of ancient Egyptian rattles that were used in the worship of the Goddesses and Gods. But it isn’t simply a musical instrument; it is also a magical instrument.

As you may already suspect, sistrum is a Latin word. In turn, it derives from a Greek term for the Egyptian rattle: seistron”that which is…

I am Isis—the Goddess & Her Aretalogies

Isiopolis

I very much like this Cosmic Isis by artist Dahlia Khodur. Here's a link to her FB page.

Let’s talk a bit about the Isis aretalogies.

The aretalogies are those first-person statements in which the Goddess details Her many accomplishments and gifts to humankind. Here’s an except from one in case you need a little reminder:

I am She that riseth in the Dog Star.
I am She that is called Goddess by women.
For me was the city of Bubastis built.
I divided the earth from the heaven.
I showed the paths of the stars. 

I ordered the course of the sun and the moon.
I devised business in the sea.
I made strong the right.
I brought together woman and man.

I appointed to women to bring their infants to birth in the tenth month.
I ordained that parents should be loved by children.
I laid punishment on…

Chant of the Mystics: Missa Regia Gloria (2 hours) – Angelic Gregorian Chant 

“Gloria in excelsis Deo” is a Christian hymn known also as the Greater Doxology, Angelic Hymn or Hymn of the Angels. The name is often abbreviated to Gloria in Excelsis or simply Gloria. The Latin translation is traditionally attributed to Saint Hilary of Poitiers (300–368), who may have learned it while in the East.

Jupiter Pentacle Consecration

Frater S- Musings on Magic and Mysticism

Continuing my experiments with Omega Magick‘s approach to the Solomonic pentacles, I decided to create the Seventh Pentacle of Jupiter. This one protects against poverty and removes or circumvents star-crossed luck, ill fortune, and fateful circumstance to allow the flow of prosperous blessings to pour in.

Lately I haven’t been doing much prosperity magic for my own reasons, but it was time for a serious boost in order to start paying off debt and keeping my head above water. I usually only ask for what I need, not what I want, anyway. I have had results in other ways, but I wanted to try a different method.

Psalm 113 is used on this pentacle, specifically verse 7: “Who raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the needy out of the dunghill”. In Mathers’ Key of Solomon translation, he also includes verse 8 (“That He may…

The Tetragrammaton – Masonry Meets Theurgy

The Tetractys and the Sephiroth represent similar concepts; however the link between these two concepts would not be readily apparent were it not for their common use of the Tetragrammaton. The Tetagrammaton serves as a bridge between these concepts which span time, culture (Greek and Hebrew), and multiple Masonic rites and rituals. This paper discusses the Tetragrammaton, the Tetractys, and the Sephiroth and shows how the three are related.  […]

Minotaur — A Beastie of Epic Proportions

Down, down below the imperial Palace of Knossos, the capital of Crete and home to King Minos, legend has it that there lurks a mythical beast. A beast so terrible, so ferocious, that it could not be allowed to see the light of day. Contained within a maze, and fed by sacrificial rites, it is doomed to a storybook ending.  […]
