Happy Samhain/Halloween

Happy Halloween and Samhain, folks!

This is believed to be the time of year that Goddess Isis suffered her great loss of her husband Osiris- due to the deception of Set(h). This was the time that Isis used her magic- the ‘Heka’ to resurrect Osiris and bring him together and back from oblivion.

This is the end of one cycle, the beginning of a new one. Use your ‘Heka’ to piece yourself together at this time. We are all with you! Connect in with Lady Isis to bring back the pieces of you back together.

Elephantine Festival of Anuket

Thousands of years ago, the 30th day of the third month of the season of flood (October) marked the Elephantine Festival of Anuket.

Elephantine Island is now part of the modern city of Aswan in southern Egypt.

AnuketAnuket was considered one of the protectors of the Nile and was depicted as a woman wearing a high crown of feathers.  Anuket was part of a triad with the god Khnum, and the goddess Satis, known as the Triad of Elephantine.

It is said that she appeared with Taweret (a god of pregnancy and fertility) on funeral rites too. This represented two goddesses protecting the waters as a soul made their journey onwards.

Perhaps it is fitting that a festival relating to a god that protected the waters, the journey onwards to the afterlife, comes the day before Halloween/Samhaim… 🙂
