Isis is one of the best known goddesses of Egyptian Mythology. She took over many of the roles of other, older goddesses as her worship grew. In the New Kingdom era, she took over Hathor's role, and was after adorned with the sun disk between the sacred cow horns. Isis was reputed to be a greater magician then any of the other gods, she ruled over the heavens and natural world, was a defender of the kingdom from enemies, and had power over fate.
I forge my Isis pendants on Sunday. The bead is polished copper. I chant into each forged piece a request for Isis's blessing, for mysteries to be revealed, and for abundance and prosperity.
