Audio transcript:
"We remember that this is the eve of the Opet Festival of Ancient Egypt, as the Sun leaves the Crab, Cancer and enters the sign of Leo of the Lion Goddess Sekhmet. . . Sekhmet is the Goddess of the mysterious Lion power, which is within us all. . .We know now that the true constellation of Leo is one with Virgo, who is the serene face of the Goddess with the body of the Lion, the Androsphinx."

Brigid of the Rainbow Planets

"Brigid of the Rainbow Planets: Adventures of the Alchemical Twins" is now available in paperback.  This book features eight liturgy rites of the Fellowship of Isis and six illustrations by the FOI co-founder Olivia Robertson.
Olivia wrote in the introduction:   "How could I allow the questing twins to rest on their laurels – having achieved the twelve alchemical degrees of the zodiac, and not pursue the other twenty degrees of the FOI Spiral of Alchemy?  I kept wondering what happened to them.  Learning the Mysteries through identification with attractive individuals helps us to respond not only with the mind but with the heart.. . To explore one’s own psychic centres not only may bring us spiritual awareness, but a relationship with our planets.  Each is a Power-House reflecting a harmonic of the Central Sun. The Alchemy of the Goddess Brigid extends one’s consciousness through the colour spectrum and musical octaves beyond this material world – yet embraces it.  'As Above, so Below.'  Earth is a reflection of Heaven."
This book may be ordered through Amazon (or any other bookstore), and by public libraries as well.  You may also read it in full at any time in the Online Liturgy section of our website:
