Thames-Isis: Blessing of the Fleet (Isidias Navigatum) Ritual

Isidias Navigatum Blessing the Fleet ritual 2014 London   (c)Mani Navasothy
We continue the exploring of the mysteries and magic of the Goddess Isis in a series of rituals to be held by the banks of river Thames in London. (Tamesis is an old name of river Thames, and supposedly means `Thames-Isis’).

Date: Saturday 2nd March 2014   (this is on New Moon!)

Ritual outline (tbc): A statue of the Goddess will be carried to the water, where flowers-wreathed women may offer mirrors so that she may see her beauty. Priests will pour milk on the sands from a pitcher shaped like Isis's breast, then sprinkle the statue with precious perfumes. As the final part of the ritual, a small replica boat will be filled with spices and sent (out to sea) as an offering to the Goddess Isis.

Meet at Richmond Rail/ Tube station by 1.00pm. We'll walk up to nearby grounds by the riverside for social & Isis ceremony.


Future Isis Rituals (various venues on Thames)

  • --Wednesday 17th July: Birthday of Isis (Night of the Cradle). Sky Goddess Nut gives birth to Isis.
  • --Saturday 16th November: (Full moon) Quests of Isis: searching, mourning and the finding of Osiris. (This is the `Samhain equivalent).

All Welcome to attend, to contact us and contribute with your creativity, knowledge & magic for these new explorations..facebook event for Isis Navigatum ritual
