Isis is a goddess who is a totally timeless expression of the Divine Feminine; she is as relevant today as she was in ancient times. Devoted to empowering others, Isis supports the awakening of humanity as we head into a new World Age. She brings value and respect to the roles of wife and mother, is the patron of magic, nature, and healing, and is considered a protector of the dead.

She is currently at 15 Libra, lined up nicely (see Horoscopes for more on this) for the Venus/Mars bingle with Uranus/Pluto over the next month and opposite Uranus right now.
If you look at enough images of her you can see how she was transmuted into the Hebrew Lilith and/or the Celtic Morrigan – winged women, the both of them. And sundry demons of course – don’t forget that even the name for Venus as Morning Star (Venus Lucifer – Lucifer means light-bearer) got massively warped.
Even in Game Of Thrones – a television series with arguably the biggest quota of individuated female characters in history – the “bad” slave-trading cities are depicted as ruled by a deity not unlike Isis.
She is also the High Priestess of the Tarot:
