Sun in Capricorn


Blessings of the time of Capricorn!  Click below to listen to audio of Olivia Robertson speaking of the myths behind the stars:


Audio transcript:
"At Clonegal Castle in Ireland, it is Winter in the constellation of Capricorn. Let us contemplate this mystery of the humble Earth at the far distant stars of Capricorn, which some saw as a sea goat. Teachings given to us by the Magi. For they would ask a simple person: "my friend what is that in the sky?" They would say: 'it's goat's horns.' And the Magus would say, 'I will tell you concerning that goat.' And so the starry book revealed myths not known to astronomers, yet written in the Book of Fate. Despise not the myths of the stars, for they were linked to the simple imagination of humble fellow friends who gazed at the sky and called them names, and the teachings were given. And so their souls were brought nourishment. Let us contemplate the Earth and the constellation of Capricorn. . ."

Audio transcript:
"All the zodiac is a part of us, although we have our particular sun sign.  Unless we relate to the whole lovely heavens, a little part of us is missing.  But know also that if we turn away from the Goddess, her lovely starry body has lost something.  Without each one of us, each creature, the Universe is incomplete."

Athena, Arcadian Awakening

 
"Athena, Arcadian Awakening" by Olivia Robertson is now available in paperback.  It includes eleven Fellowship of Isis liturgy rites and fifteen illustrations.  This is the last book Olivia wrote before her passing in 2013. 
 
From the introduction:  "My new book concerns spiritual awakening through the arts. We learn of the work of Elaine and Aiden, now qualified Alchemists in the FOI Priesthood. The Rainbow Flow of Divine Life, circulates through inter-communion spirals, pervading all beings. As we progress, we extend this awareness from Spirit Guides to the sphere of Angels and Devas who are advanced beyond us, and are therefore our teachers. The culmination of Divine Beings emanating from a Heavenly Sphere comes when we are ready for it, and can enjoy it. In Heaven there is no fear, nor evil. Why should we object to various names religious people give to these beings? Let us enjoy the reality of the whole company of heaven, without religious conflict." 
 
"Athena" may be ordered through Amazon.com or any other bookstore, and by public libraries.  You may also read it in full at any time on our website:

Sun in Sagittarius

 
The Shrine of Sagittarius, Foundation Center Temple
 
"Presided over by The Morrigan, Queen of All Rivers at Full Flow,
all Springs and Wells, She is the Virgin Source – the Baive.
Her husband is The Dagda Mor, Chief of the Danaans
She is also An Cailleach, the Widow, She Who Weeps.
Where Her Daughter, a tributary, joins her,
a Goddess Centre is traditionally established.
The Castle is on the Banks of the River Derry,
which is a tributary of the ‘River of Healing’- the Slaney.
The FOI as a Daughter of the Goddess
has established the ‘New Awakening’
and dedicated it as the Druid Clan of Dana,
based in the Druid Grove
in the Wilderness in the grounds of the Castle."

In honor of Olivia Robertson

 
On the anniversary of her passing four years ago, please join us in remembering Olivia Robertson, co-founder of the Fellowship of Isis.  Here also is an audio clip of her speaking on transmuting negative emotions - click on the link:
 
 
Audio transcript, (mp3 / 1:00 min / 233 kb): 
"The Earth is starved for peace, but it is also tortured by ideas that seem to clash:  religions that disagree, people that disagree on the mental level.  And if that were not enough, we are torn aside by terrible emotions . . . righteous indignation - it usually calls itself righteous - revenge, jealousy, these things.  But they can all be - they're not worthless - they can all be transmuted into good.  Divine mind can take to itself our wild fantasies and beliefs, and a greater Love can take to itself all our lesser passions.  We cannot always agree with each other on this plane, but we can realize that what is good in us is one with everybody else, elsewhere."
