Enfolded in the Wings of Isis


We ascend to the realm of Hathor, Goddess of love. We find here the psychic center of love. Love is the heart beat of the universe. You are love. Each of us is born of the Divine Mother. Ator, Ator … Ator. Now we feel a particular gleam in our heart. We feel divine guidance as to how we may help. Silently say the name of someone you know, who may need healing. Angelic beings help Hathor. Feel this healing for yourselves, now that you have given it to someone else, you can ask it for yourselves.” ~ “Enfolded in the Wings of Isis” – by Olivia Robertson


The transcript of the entire guided journey is available on FOI Central Website:

Blessed Spring Equinox - Happy Anniversary to the Fellowship of Isis


Blessed Spring Equinox! Happy Forty-Sixth Anniversary to the Fellowship of Isis! "The Fellowship is dedicated to spreading the religion of all the Goddesses throughout this planet. The Gods are also venerated. The Goddess is seen as Deity, the Divine Mother of all beings, as well as the embodiment of Truth and Beauty. Hindus, Buddhists, Christians, including Catholics and Protestants, and Spiritualists have joined. ... The Goddess Isis alone is Head of Her Fellowship. Within Her Family - Shemsu - all members will still have equal privileges. Membership will continue to be free. F.O.I. is not a Patriarchal Hierarchy, so no member can have spiritual authority over another. Iseums, Lyceums, Groves and Priories will remain on equal footing. Titles describe work undertaken, and are not a badge of authority over people or beliefs." ~ original Handbook of the Fellowship of Isis

Winter Solstice Blessings!


"Now, at this holy time, Winter Solstice, the sun appears at its lowest in the sky, and star shrine forth in splendor; we call upon the Mother of All to bring forth from the dark winter a bright abundance, as life is renewed and the sun strengthens on its course." ~ Olivia Robertson "Prayer for the Winter Solstice"

Lunar Eclipse (evening of November 18 - early morning of November 19)


“It was on the shores of Brittany Raymond de Forez, first chief of the house of Lusignan, encountered the beautiful faery Mélusine, whom he wed. Her image can be seen in the old church at Fougéres (Ille-et-Vilaine) shown combing her long hair, holding a mirror. Their descendants are both faerie and mortal. Those who carry the blood of the fey and others blessed by creative vision unite earth with the Blessed Land through the visual arts, dance, music and poetry. The sign of the eclipse of the moon assures the rising of the Blessed Isle. We, as children of the Goddess can bring the joys of the Many-Coloured Land into reality.” ~ Olivia Robertson, private letter
Note: The Lunar Eclipse begins at 11:00pm (PST) Thursday Night (November 18). Maximum eclipse will occur Friday Morning at 1:03 am (PST) (November 19). During maximum eclipse (1:03 am PST, 3:03 am CST) only a sliver at the bottom of the Moon will be lit by the Sun. The Moon should appear almost totally eclipsed, becoming orange, red, or dark gray due to sunlight refracted by the Earth’s atmosphere just as our sky looks red just after sunset.
