Isis: Archetype of Love and Devotion
By Esoteric Embers (2013)
Isis in Astrology
- Isis associations: unity, love, loyalty, devotion, sustaining, synthesizing, reassembling, resurrection, alchemy, soul retrieval, healing of fragmentation, finding wholeness of Self through union with other, kundalini, sex magic, mother of inner divinity, wholeness, and mourning protector of the dead.
- The house and sign placement of the Isis asteroid in our birth chart, along with its aspects to other celestial bodies, shows us an area of life where we can synthesize love and wisdom from our experiences in life, open our hearts and radiate love in the world, and become devoted to a personal cause or passion. It also can be an area of our life where we have soul wounds or fragmented parts of our psyche in need of resurrection and healing: her placement shows a point of focus where we can synthesize and reassemble ourselves to become more whole, as well as help retrieve and heal the fragmentation of others.
- Isis has an archetypal affinity with Virgo in astrology, and integrates Pisces through the polarity.
- The Isis asteroid was discovered on May 23, 1856 in Oxford, United Kingdom.
Azoth was considered to be a universal medicine or universal solvent sought in alchemy (similar to other alchemical idealized substance alkahest that, like azoth, was the aim, goal and vision of many alchemical works it was to achieve). Its symbol was the Caduceus and so the term, which being originally a term for an occult formula sought by alchemists much like the philosopher’s stone, became a poetic word for the element mercury, the name being originally derived from Arabic al-zā’ūq “the mercury”.
Azoth is the essential agent of transformation in alchemy. It is the name given by ancient alchemists to Mercury, the animating spirit hidden in all matter that makes transmutation possible. The spelling consists of the initial letter of the Latin, Greek and Hebrew alphabets followed by the final letters of the Latin alphabet (Z), the Greek alphabet (Omega) and the Continue reading
“Now Isis had to begin her search once more. This time she had helpers, for Nephthys left her wicked husband Seth and came to join her sister. And Anubis, the son of Osiris and Nephthys, taking the form of a jackal, assisted in the search. When Isis traveled over the land she was accompanied and guarded by seven scorpions.” See here.

True, without falsehood, certain and most true, that which is above is the same as that which is below, and that which is below is the same as that which is above, for the performance of miracles of the One Thing.

The Myth & Legend of Thoth and The Book of Thoth
Thoth [Tehuti] is one of the most complex Egyptian deities. According to classical belief it was Thoth who brought the idea of creation into existence by uttering the thoughts of the creator; Ptah then put those spoken words into effect. The ancient Egyptians considered Thoth to be the mind behind cosmic order, the architect of the universe. Thoth was the principal deity of the city of Continue reading
Law of Tehuti:
When all of your thoughts, feelings, and actions reflect the Word of God, then the power of God’s spirit and a peace that nothing can challenge will flow through your being.
If we can intuit the Word of God by cultivating our ability to be at peace in situations of challenge, why give in to anger, fear, lust, etc.? If we have access to the Word of God (wisdom) which is superior to our own minds, why rely primarily on our minds? Continue reading
Idris‘ (Arabic: إدريس) is an ancient prophet mentioned in the Qur’an. He is described in the Qur’an as “trustworthy” and “patient” and the Qur’an also says that he was “exalted to a high station”, which has generally been understood in Islamic tradition to mean that he ascended into Heaven without dying. Because of this and other parallels, traditionally Idris has been identified with the Biblical Enoch, and therefore Islamic tradition usually places Idris in the early Generations of Adam, and considers him one of the oldest prophets mentioned in the Qur’an, placing him sometime between Adam and Noah.
Idris’ unique status inspired many future traditions and stories surrouding him in Islamic lore. Continue reading
Mercury is the smallest and closest to the Sun of the eight planets in the Solar System, with an orbital period of about 88 Earth days. Seen from the Earth, it appears to move around its orbit in about 116 days, which is much faster than any other planet. This rapid motion may have led to it being named after the Roman deity Mercury, the fast-flying messenger to the gods.
In Western astrology, Mercury is the ruling planet of Gemini and Virgo. That is, the supposed astrological influence of the planet was greatest when it was observed in these constellations.
The ancient association of Mercury with Wednesday is still visible in the names of Wednesday in various Continue reading
