Ancient Calendar & Pagan Holidays: June 16th: Isis’s Tear

 

Ancient Egyptians found sense in everything and out of everything came purpose. Let the annual flooding of the Nile be no different.

We owe that honor to the Goddess of the Nile, Satis, who took a single tear from the Goddess Isis and placed it within’ the river’s waters – bringing forth it’s high waters.

But what sort of tear could cause the world’s largest river to rise? And why on this day should we remember?

When darkness fell, so very long ago, the Egyptians called it the, Night of the Teardrop, for it was said that Isis shed one single tear for her murdered husband Osiris. A tear which symbolized the heart-wrenching mourning the Goddess did for her beloved brother/husband.

The tale of Isis and Osiris is a famous one. Perhaps it inspired all love stories to come. For in the Ancient World, the Golden Age of a King and his everlasting Queen would become it’s own unfortunate version of Romeo and Juliet. More importantly, this would go down in history of one of the most cunning, determined, clever, and strongest Goddesses I would ever come to know. It is well understood why Isis is the Goddess of a Thousand Names. She who earned, without a doubt, each and every one of them.

Ancient Calendar: June 16, 2010 : Teardrops of Isis

Everyone ready for the Ancient Calendar for today?

Here we go…we ONLY have one, but what a beautiful one it is. I tell ya, those Egyptians might not have partied it up like the Greeks and Romans, but when it came to celebrations or what was sacred, they made it sound as sweet as a whisper…or look as spectacular and breathtaking as a sunset…

Let this evening be NO different…

The Egyptians called it, Night of a Teardrop.

On this night, when the moon rose high in it’s sky, Isis shed one blessed and mournful tear for her beloved, Osiris. That precious tear was then collected into the palm of the Goddess of the River Nile, Satis, in which she placed it within’, causing the Nile to bring forth it’s annual flood. Even in Isis’ pain, something divine came forth.

So, if this night brings tears to your eyes, for whatever reason, know that while the pain might be gruesome, there may still come a blessing from them.

And may Isis bless you all…although I am sure she already has.
