Isis married her husband-brother Osiris. She concieved Horus, the Egyptian Son of God. Isis was later replaced by the Virgin Mary. She is regarded as the Universal Mother. She is a particular protector and patron of women. She has guided women in childbirth and comforts women mourning the death of loved ones.
Her qualities of compassion, tenderness, love and devotion have endeared her to women throughout the ages. She is a reminder to women of their connection to the All-Goddess and to each other.
As a patron of women, she affirms women as great sources of strength, healing and inspiration for each other. She shows us our own ability to heal ourselves and to heal others.
Even today Isis reconnects us with our innate healing powers by telling us we need not be victims of the patriarchal, Western scientific traditions of most unecessary medicine and surgery.
