Exactly Who was Isis: Horus’ Mother?

Isis, Wife and Sister of Osiris

Isis is a goddess in Egyptian mythology. She was the sister and wife of Osiris, and they had a son named Horus. As goddess of life and magic, Isis protected women and children, and healed the sick. Closely linked to the throne, she was one of the greatest goddesses of Ancient Egypt.

Her symbols were the ankh, her wings, and her throne headdress. (from Wikipedia)

She is sometimes depicted with a solar disc on her head, as shown in the above image.

While Cleopatra VII was Queen of Egypt, she would have been the personification of the Goddess, on Earth. Her relationship with Julius Caesar was an alliance to unite the new Roman Empire with ancient Egypt, the country where the gods and goddesses ruled.

I suspect that Cleopatra realized that Caesar was the personification of Osiris in the world. She knew a good history lesson when it presented itself.

They had a child together: Caesarion, although Caesar would never confirm paternity.

Caesarion (June 23, 47 BCE – August 23, 30 BCE)

It didn’t turn out as expected. Julius Caesar was assassinated during the Ides of March, 44 BCE, and Caesarion did not became his successor. Not only that, but Octavian (Set?) made sure by having Caesarion killed after Cleopatra committed suicide in 30 BCE, thereby becoming the sole heir to the head of the Roman and Egyptian empires.

I think this birth chart demonstrates how dynamic Caesarion was (Pluto/Sun conjunct), and also how young he was when his life ended (Saturn in his teens). But, as always, the inconjunct reveals a bit more than we’d reasonably expect to know.

The difficulty with this aspect is to find a balance between getting what you want in life and getting along with others. More than most people, you will have to learn the necessity of compromising to get along with people, especially because you often seem more aggressive than you are. While you are young, the need to compromise may be frustrating, because youth is a time when your own needs seem especially urgent and demanding. At times you may feel that nothing is going your way, that you continually have to give in to others and put your own wishes aside. However, it is not really this bad. You do not actually have to compromise any more than anyone else, but you are more reluctant to do so.

Learn to work for the good of others by making their objectives your objectives, whenever possible. This aspect can signify the ability to accomplish a great deal, as long as you do not spend all your time and energy feeling angry or resentful about seemingly undeserved defeats. When you have a real goal to work toward that you can share with others, you will be able to attain that goal.

The Other One

It makes me wonder how these myths and legends become ‘real’. Set, also known as Seth, was the trouble-maker in the lives of the Egyptian gods and goddesses.

What is truly weird is that Adam and Eve’s third son was also named Seth. Is there a connection? The Hebrews spent a lot of time in Egypt. It doesn’t take too much of a leap of faith to see that they may be one and the same. However, his reputation has always been negative in the Egyptian story.

Conclusion

There’s that old saying, “What goes around, comes around again.”

I have no doubts that we are in the End Times. It makes sense that personalities and energies from the past would want to be present to help mankind through its travail.

We are giving birth to a new species of humanity.

Isis is here to watch over the process.

    Just a note about Isis’ name: the extra ‘s’ at the end is not supposed to be there. in Coptic, the spelling is Ⲏⲥⲉ Ēse. This puts me in mind of the Essenes. Is there a connection?
