ISIS - The Egyptian Goddess

ISIS, the Egyptian goddess, remains one of the most familiar images of the empowered female. She is the goddess of fertility who gives light, and who rules over the earth and the harvest. ISIS is depicted as the loving wife and devoted mother. ISIS was known as life-giver, protector, provider, healer, mother, kingmaker, and teacher.

The goddess ISIS spent time among her people, teaching women how to grind corn, make bread, and weave cloth. Isis taught her people the skills of reading and agriculture. ISIS was skilled in the use of words and power. She was worshiped as the goddess of medicine, wisdom and knowledge. ISIS embodies the strengths of the feminine: creation, rebirth, nurturing, love and compassion.

The goddess ISIS is known as the essence of feminine energy and the personification of the “complete female.” The ancient Egyptian goddess ISIS has many gifts to share with modern women today. At the ISIS Project, we have chosen ISIS as a symbol of feminine wisdom and wellness.
