Celebrate Lychnapsia!

Good morning, Cauldron friends!

Offerings to Isis
Today, August 12th, I am celebrating Lychnapsia, also known as the Festival of Lights of Isis. This is a Kemetic (Ancient Egyptian) holy day. It signifies the day that Isis went in search of her husband Osiris by torchlight.

Isis has long been a Goddess that I honor and admire. She personifies the "complete female", and is known as "The One That Is All". She is also known as Aset, and was the mother of Horus.

My Lychnapsia altar
Lychnapsia is a day that I honor Isis and all that She does to support me. I light a green candle in her honor, and burn vervain and rose petals. For me, Isis represents just about every aspect of my life. She taught reading and agriculture, and is a model for me of healing and wisdom. She is a protector, giver of life, and her love runs deep. Isis is the Goddess of Magick, and the Goddess of Destruction.

Wishing you all a most Blessed Sunday,
