Wings of Spirit

“Isis of Ten Thousand Names, Who protecteth the soul with Thy feathery wings of the Kite; Whose blood, enchantments and power strengthen the soul, inspire us with Thy breath of the West Wind. Winged Goddess Who concealeth Thy brow with Thy long hair, spread Thy hair of enchantment and shake it over the brow of Thy Devotees. Breathe into us Thy Breath of life and health and strength. Restore us to life, as Thou gavest life to Thy Husband, Osiris.” 

~ Olivia Robertson, Invocation to the Goddess Isis of Egypt and Hellas, in “Sybil, Oracles of the Goddess,” in ‘Part VI. We Face the Mysteries’.

Remembering Olivia Robertson

Olivia Robertson, co-founder of the Fellowship of Isis passed into spirit sphere on the evening of November 14, 2013. We remember her today, and continue to honor her legacy and memory with loving respect. Perhaps the best tribute to her can be found in these words she received through divine inspiration:

“Death is for the ignorant! Immortality is for those who know the truth! Develop your psychic and spiritual gifts, so that not only will you recognize this “death” as the impostor it is, but you will help others to lose any fear … Reunion with those you love is certain … Manifest your Divine Origin which is born from the Mother of All, Nuit, Whose children are immortal like unto Herself. Nourish then all good gifts in each person and each being, and you strengthen the harmony between the Divine Sphere of Heaven with its transient reflection which is this world. There is no death. Love is eternal.”

(Quote: excerpt from the Oracle of the Goddess Isis in ‘Dulce Domum. The Soul Returns Home’, ritual no. 4, in “Panthea, Initiations and Festivals of the Goddess.”)

In Memoriam: Shrine of Absent Friends

A New Page has been added to Fellowship of Isis Central Website: "In Memoriam: Shrine of Absent Friends." This page is dedicated to the centers and hearths of departed FOI members who now walk the starry pathways. They are gone but not forgotten, and their contributions are not forgotten. Olivia Robertson often told us that temples and hearths are still active on the etheric for their spiritual work has built a resonance there. If you know of an FOI member who had a center and has passed on, please contact us at (Understandably we are being very cautious in adding centers to this page!)

Blessed Summer Solstice!

"My golden hair is wheat and oats,
My robe the ever-changing sky;
The lady-bird My finger bears,
My eyes shine forth in lake and sea.

From the depths of earth My inner sun
Glows through the hearts of all existences.
Atoms and stars: creatures that grow and move,
Know Me as Mother and as Consciousness.

My breath inspires every breath:
The healing rays are Mine.
Look upwards, round about and down,
For I am everywhere." ~ Oracle of Grainne, as received by Olivia Robertson ('Summer Ritual of the Sun', from "Dea, Rites and Mysteries of the Goddess")

Founding of the Fellowship of Isis

Blessings Aset Shemsu! In honor of the upcoming anniversary of the founding of the FOI, during the FOI Convocation at Isis Oasis, Geyserville, California, USA, 2006, Olivia Robertson gave the following account of the Founding of the Fellowship of Isis

Anniversary of FOI Founding: March 21

March 18- Celebrate the Birth of the FOI on March 21: “Earth Magic of Transformation” in Urania. Rite by Attunement for All FOI Members are free to join in by around the world on March 21st, Spring Equinox, which is the actual FOI Birthday/Date of the Founding - either as full ceremonial, or reading it, and visualising it.

There doesn't have to be a specific time as that is difficult to coordinate internationally, without it being inconvenient for some. All the rites can be done solo, by reading aloud, perhaps with a candle, and or incense, or more elaborate if you choose! Relax beforehand, and anoint your brow with water before you start. Make sure you won't be interrupted by phones or people. Cats and dogs usually like to join in!

Registration within the Fellowship of Isis

Registration within the Fellowship of Isis

Just a friendly reminder: the heads of all centers are responsible for keeping their own records of titles conferred via consecration or ordination, and all degrees earned. This is in accordance with the wishes of FOI Co-Founder Olivia Robertson, who continued the gradual decentralization of the Fellowship of Isis, a process she began in 1999. Any members who wish to send copies of their records to FOI Central for listings on the website or for inclusion in Isian News are warmly welcome 
to do so!

Oracles of the Seasons: Oracle of the Goddess Tara


Priestess: (Invocation) I invoke Thee, the Goddess Tara! Thou art the Pristine Spirit, the Ultimate Nature and the clear Light of Heaven. Thou art the One Who encloses the Universe. Help us to rise above the sorrows and follies of this material world!

Oracle: Have Peace. Peace is now, in your heart, if you will accept it. You will not attain Spiritual Light by refusing to face the darkness. The darkness not only contains your past but also, through transmutation, your future. Have courage. I have gone before you as a mortal woman and shall come again. I breathe my life into all beings and I suffer with them and share their ignorance and follies!

The greatest evil you fear is death. There is no death. While you are identified with a body of clay you find it difficult to enjoy the bliss of the heavens. You are beset by grief, hatred, violence and cruelty. But you also acquire merit through overcoming these obstacles to Illumination. There are souls who never incarnate upon the earth. And these shine like the stars with pure light. But those such as yourselves who struggle bravely every day with its worries and sorrows gallantly walk backwards into the future! You do not know even what your next day will bring.

The peace I bring is faith in the Divine Love, Buddhi. Take my lotus of ever-renewing life and so accept the future, whatever this may bring you. Know that the delusions of this earth become the material for creation in the Heavens. My magic is renewal. I do not ask you to reject evil, but to transmute it through understanding into good. I am Tara of the Many Selves: of the Heavens, of the dreaming moon, of the harsh earth. I enclose all these Selves in my rainbow Halo that encompasses all beings in my eternal Love, Beauty and Truth.

"Oracle of the Goddess Tara" from the FOI Liturgy Book “Melusina, Life Centers of the Goddess”, Ritual no. 12, “Lighting the Rainbow Aura" by Olivia Robertson.
