“Isis Oracle” cards by Alana Fairchild

My favourite oracle deck! We are invited to ‘Awaken the High Priestess Within’ but the card deck can be used by males and females alike. The book has black and white illustrations of the cards, all with wonderful titles, such as “Enter the Chamber of Healing”, “Lady of the Stars”, “Serpent of Fire”, “Temple of Black Obsidian”. Each card has a substantial write-up and offers an in-depth understanding of the card, a practical healing ritual and a poetic incantation.

This is a continuation of the article I started in the Autumn edition of Goddess Pages, on “21 Women”, a chapter in ‘Awakening Osiris’ by Normandi Ellis. In the Autumn edition I worked with the first ten of the women, seeking to learn more about them by allocating to each a path on the tree of life and a crystal correspondence.

Nephthys – Silent Goddess of the Shadows

Take any book of Ancient Egypt and look for Nephthys in the index, more likely than not it will read ‘see Isis and Nephthys’. Why isn’t Nephthys viewed as a goddess in her own right? She doesn’t appear to have been worshiped on her own and there is no evidence for any cult centre or temples dedicated to her.
