Egyptian Goddess, Isis, embodies the Great Mother archetype, ruling over healing, protection and magick; the original witch.
She is the mother of Horus, the Sun God, and the wife of Osiris, God of the after-life. Stemming from her role in the legendary myth of Osiris, Isis is the principal deity in rites connected to the dead, often invoked on behalf of the sick and of the dead for protection.
Egyptians came to believe that Isis could be found in the brightest star of the night sky, the dog star Sirius. This connects Isis to the cosmos. Readily known as a solar goddess through her connection to the eye of Ra, she is known as Stella Maris, latin for “star of the sea”, which makes her deeply tied to the moon and tides.
