Fellowship of Isis Attunement Reminder

 
This month's attunement with the Foundation Center Temple will be on Thursday, August 16th, at 9-10am GMT
 
As written in the Lughnasadh issue of Isian News, Isian Voices"As most members of the Fellowship of Isis will know, Olivia [Robertson] decided upon an attunement time for the global Fellowship community of 6:30-8:30 GMT, every morning and evening.  Attunement times are a wonderful way of reconnecting to our hearth shrines, our Iseums, to one another and, most importantly, to the Goddess. They allow us a moment of pause in a busy and chaotic world, to realign our hearts, minds and soul to our true vocation, whatever its outer expression. It allows us to pause in the embrace of the wings of Isis, in the deep serenity and peace of the Divine in all of its manifestations. To complement the morning attunement, we will be adding a monthly attunement time from 9am to 10am Irish time, when a Priestess will open the temple and remain in reflection for the period of the attunement. This will hopefully facilitate a deeper connection between the global membership and the temple at the Foundation Centre, allowing the energy to flow to you from the temple and from the temple to you. Although this happens at all times anyway, we are hoping to provide the space for a conscious communion."
 

If this time is not convenient for you, please attune when you can. "Members and others may attune at any time to our Rainbow Network, knowing that somewhere the Goddess is being invoked and her Blessings sent forth."  (Olivia Robertson, "Maya") 
 
This monthly attunement is being provided in addition to the usual FOI attunement times of 6:30-8:30 GMT, morning and evenings.  A time zone converter may be found at this site:

Homage to Juno

 
"We offer incense, Juno, in honour of Thy Divinity. In the Hermean Zodiac Thou are the Wateress and from Thy streaming breasts pour the waters of Aquarius, source of life for generations of souls. The Gnostics proclaimed the silver streams from Thy breasts to be Sophia Above and Sophia Below, the manifest and the arcane Wisdom.  Thy daughter Hebe, beautiful Ganymeda, bestows nectar from her cup to the Olympian Deities. . . Thus from the Source of life flowing from Juno's breasts do Her children, Hebe, Aquarius and Ganymede receive living water. And they bestow this nectar to others from an overflowing cup. May we ourselves learn likewise to accept and to give Living water."
 
Olivia Robertson, "Sophia, Cosmic Consciousness of the Goddess"

Sun in Cancer

 
Blessings of the Sun in Cancer!  Below is a link to an audio clip of Lawrence Durdin-Robertson during an FOI rite:

Audio transcript:
"Companions on the quest for occult wisdom hidden within the Great Deep, know that the Sign of Cancer was reverenced in remote antiquity. In the fourth month of the Chaldea Duzu, it is the Northern Gate of the Sun whence, at the Summer Solstice, it commences its retrograde movement. With Scorpio and Pisces, Cancer forms the Watery Trigon. To the Coptic Egyptians, this sign was the Power of Darkness of the Jackal Anubis, Guide of the Dead, a Deity of Sirius. It was known as the Dark Sign with no eyes. The Ancient Egyptians knew it as Scarabeus, the beetle Kephera that holds the mud ball of earth. Cancer is depicted as Sacer, the Water Beetle of Immortality, in the most ancient Zodiac known, found in the Temple of Isis in the Denderah Temple of Hathor."
