The colors of Lady Isis are white, gold, and cobalt blue, all clearly visible in the colorful rays of refracted light shimmering off the surface of this gorgeous pendant. Many in the Middle East view these as the colors of royalty and comfort. The gemstones associated with Isis are pearl, coral, light blue and silver.

The posture of the figure on this Moonstone Lady Isis Pendant is familiar to all students of Egyptian art. As depicted on this Moonstone bas-relief, Lady Isis extends her wings in a gesture of protection, while on her knees, making an offering of the sacred ankh to the Divine. To the Egyptians, the ankh was both a ritual object and a hieroglyph, part of their written language, a power-symbol whether written, spoken or fabricated. The ankh is also known as "the key of life", "the key of the Nile" and the "crux ansata", and the meaning of this Egyptian hieroglyph is "eternal life".
Properties of Spectrolite
Spectrolite is a rare and unique gemstone variety of Labradorite, a member of the Feldspar family of minerals, which includes Amazonite, Moonstone, and Sunstone.
Lightworkers consider Spectrolite to be a true Ascension Stone, facilitating the alchemical process of Self-transformation.
Spectrolite was discovered in eastern Finland during the Second World War, and is a relatively new gemstone recently arrived in world markets. Spectrolite is a dark gray to gray-black gemstone, which displays rainbow-colored iridescence when it is rotated in the light.
Spectrolite symbolizes the flashes of radiance that illuminate the dark night sky, making this a gemstone with an inherent affinity to Lady Isis, Goddess of the Dark Night and Sparkling Stars.
Because Spectrolite displays a brilliant rainbow radiance emerging from a dark stone, Spectrolite is considered by crystal healers to be an alchemical stone, which transmutes dark emotions and energies into a full range of positive emotions while it promotes brilliant flashes of insight, intuition and access to Divine Guidance.
Because of its rainbow iridescence, which reflects all the colors of the human chakra system, Spectrolite is said to energize all the chakras, slowly and gently removing a range of stuck energies from emotional trauma, mental turmoil and physical disequilibrium.
Spectrolite unites the energy of the Moon and the Sun, and assists the bearer in balancing out the masculine and feminine aspects of the personality, another indication of its value as an alchemical stone of self-transformation, invaluable as a tool in the Ascension Path of Spiritual Unfoldment.
Properties of Blue Flash Moonstone
Moonstone is a gemstone variety of the mineral feldspar, and displays a vitreous luster with a hardness only slightly less than that of quartz crystal.
This Blue Flash Moonstone has a blue shimmering reflective sheen that gemologists call "blue adularescence." This means that the Moonstone shines with a spectral lustre that flashes blue in different lights, or as the gemstone is rotated in the line of sight. The gemmy Moonstone crown on this Isis pendant produces a wavy multi-colored band of light; like a cat's-eye, with rays ranging from orange to golden to electric blue and a preoponderance of violet.
The gold and violet shimmer produced by this Moonstone crown indicates this gemstone's resonance with the crown chakra, which is considered to be violet or gold in the Western chakra system.
Moonstone brings the bearer a lunar, feminine, nurturing energy that encourages understanding, and eases change that leads to growth. It further enhances intuition & the recall of dreams, soothing the soul & the emotional body. Moonstone is used to ease the difficulties associated with pregnancy and childbirth, and to protect travelers, removing obstacles in the path.
Moonstone, based upon our experience, enhances the connection with our intuitive and psychic abilities, and provides the soothing, beneficent energy signature of the Great Mother.
Moonstone connects the bearer with the natural cycles of the body, and of the natural world in a way that energizes and heals, rejuvenating the body, and aiding in the treatment of degenertive conditions of all kinds.
Moonstone activates the throat chakra and connects the bearer to their own inner truth, Higher Purpose and Higher Wisdom, stimulating creativity in all fields of endeavor.
Gemstone quality Moonstone like that which crowns this gorgeous Lady Isis Moonstone Pendant provides a feeling of energetic and emotional expansiveness, giving the bearer a developing feeling of the possibilities in life, the potential for accelerated spiritual growth and increased love and light -- and this expansive emotional state resolves into feelings of harmony and joy.
In addition, crystal healers and Lightworkers use Moonstone in meditation to quiet the mind, expand the consciousness and help them to manifest the inner and outer resources, qualities and energies needed to fulfill the heart's innermost desires in accord with the Lightworker's highest and best good.
The Cult of Isis
Egyptian scriptures say: "In the beginning there was Isis, Oldest of the Old. She was the Goddess from whom all Becoming arose. Isis revealed the Mysteries of the Stars to the Eldest God, and birthed the Sun "when he rose upon the Earth for the first time."
Yet although Isis was Oldest of the Old, she was said to have a mother, Nuit, the Goddess of the Night Sky. Like her Mother, Isis is known as a Star Goddess, identical to Sirius, a star sacred to many spiritual seekers both East and West since before the dawn of time-keeping.
Isis has a dark twin sister, Nephthys, Goddess of the Underworld, a crone of the highest order.
Thus Isis is virtually identical with Mother Nuith and Crone Nephthys. Isis is a Trinity of Goddesses, yet another historical example what scholars call the Triple Fold Goddess, Mother, Virgin (Daughter), and Crone, a mythic configuration that can be traced back at least as far as the Neolithic era.
Sirius is also known as the Dog Star, and sits in the constellation of Canis Major. Canis means "dog" in Latin. The name Sirius is Latin, from the Greek seirios astÄ“r or "scorching star," because Sirius rose with the sun in the heat of summer.
The heliacal rising of Sirius coincided with the initiation of the Nile river's flood stage every year, and worship of Isis on that day reached a high point as well. "Sirius is the one consecrated to Isis, for it brings the water," said the Roman philosopher Plutarch. "Contrary to other rivers, [the Nile] begins its annual swelling in the hottest time of the year, at the beginning of the dog Days," explains Lucy Lamie, in her book Egyptian Mysteries."That is, at the moment when Sirius rises at the same time as the sun, a date which during the third millennium BC coincided with the summer solstice."
The Goddess of the Waters of Life and Vegetation married Osiris, who was dismembered by a jealous rival, Set, who had married Nephthys. After many adventures, Isis resurrected Osiris, and had a son, Horus, God of the Sun, just as Osiris is God of the Sun.
For the temple priests of the Egyptian dynasties, Osiris, the dying and reborn god, connected with the morning star Venus, which was known as “the heart of the renewed sun”. Lord of the Underworld and King of the Dead, in his role as the resurrected God, Osiris represented light, life and consciousness, the ever-renewing power of the Solar Disc.
Osiris was also the god of vegetation, often depicted with green skin. Egyptians created wood-framed barley seedbeds in the shape of the god, known as “Osiris gardens”. These sacred seedbeds have been found in tombs. Clearly, the plants which sprouted from these beds symbolized the resurrection of life after death.
The soul of Osiris was said to rest in his sarcophagus during the winter season, and the spring equinox marked his resurrection.
Osiris represented the eternal soul that incarnates into the physical world, dies, and yet is reborn into spiritual realms, only to reincarnate again and again in a cycle of transmigration transcending the lifespan of mere empires.
All great spiritual traditions that have left written records behind, from the Sumerian, to the Egyptian to the Greek, tell the story of seasonal cycles of birth, growth, decay, death and rebirth, corresponding to the spiritual cycles of the immortal gods and of the immortal souls of men and women living on planet Earth.
In the Neolithic age, prior to any written records, ancient scientists and priests, shamans and priestesses searched the night sky to find “fixed” reference points in the dance of the stars. This map would provide a structure reflecting the harmony of the universe, and provide an understanding of the orderly procession of seasonal change, rain and sun, that governed the yearly agricultural cycles upon which Neolithic communities depended for survival.
The cult of Isis and veneration of the Sky Goddess spread far beyond Egypt into Greece and Rome, and eventually throughout the Roman Empire. Over the centuries the worship of Isis and her husband Osiris was replaced by Christianity, and veneration of Mother Mary absorbed the cult of Isis, transforming both the original metaphysics and rituals of the Isis cult, and the metaphysics and history of Christianity at the same time.
The Sacred Geometry of the Virgin Goddess and the Seven Pointed Star
The seven pointed star, which derives from the heptagon, has a unique energy signature, which is related to the principles of sacred geometry. As we shall see, Isis is related to the Seven Pointed Star and her star is in fact, Sirius, the Source of Mystic Wisdom and the brightest Star visible from Earth. There is also a deeper significance to the geometry of the heptagon, as we shall see.
In the Tarot deck, the seventeenth Trump, called The Star, reveals Isis, the Virgin-Mother Goddess, pouring forth her cosmic waters from the transcendent realm into the material Universe, where they manifest as the energy called Shakti, materializing as the Milky Way, the array of stars that illuminate and enliven the entirety of the natural realm.
Her symbol is the seven sided star, visible in the Tarot card on this page, which was designed by Aleister Crowley and Lady Frieda Harris in the early years of the twentieth century.
The nature of the Virgin Goddess is Total Unconditional Love, unconstrained by factors of time and space. The spiraling forms of liquid light being poured forth from her cups in the Tarot Trump called The Star represent the Universal Life Force Energy which creates and sustains all the forms of Nature we perceive in this Four Dimensional Universe. The Virgin Goddess transfers that energy from the Source of all Creation into this material world, and also returns that energy to Source when material manifestation of a particular, given form reaches an end-state.
Seven is of course the number of colors in the rainbow, the number of notes in our Western musical scale, the number of endocrine glands in the human body, and the number of major chakras in the body.
The seventh, most elevated chakra is the crown chakra, which is associated with the colors violet, white or gold, and with the Higher Mind, Christ Consciousness, Cosmic Consciousness or Krishna Consciousness.
Seven is also the number of the seven stages of inner transformation through sustained spiritual practice that enable the yogi to raise the kundalini to each succeeding chakra center, to pierce each center, and to remain centered and balanced as this immensely powerful energy continues to elevate the yogi's consciousness over time.
In the yogic tradition, when, through arduous spiritual practices, the spiritual aspirant awakens the kundalini energy, which normally lies asleep, coiled in a spiral in the lowest chakra, near the perineum, the kundalini rises up the spine, slowly piercing each of the seven chakras until it reaches the crown chakra. When the spiritual aspirant succeeds in raising the kundalini to the crown, this is said to be the marriage of Shiva and Shakti, and confers enlightenment upon the yogi, who has now achieved adeptship.
The energy of the seventh chakra thus represents the marriage of the male and female principles in an alchemical union, and also constitutes the fusion of the lower self with the Higher Self, the attainment of Unity consciousness.
This sacred geometry of seven-sided star resonates with the healing, elevating energy of the transcendent Creatrix, and with the energy of the transcendent Creator, hinting at the Great Mystery of the "sacred marriage" of Shiva and Shakti, which takes place in the crown chakra of the yogic adept.
The energy of the star Sirius, and of Lady Isis, can be seen to be of the same frequency as the golden light referred to in Western mysticism as Christ Consciousness, the energy associated with the crown chakra.
This Spectrolite and Blue Flash Moonstone Isis pendant displays an amazing display of iridescent colors, making this pendant ideal for healing and for meditation by those on the spiritual path, who seek to elevate their consciousness and unite with Higher Mind. Above all this pendant is ideal for those who wish to connect to the energy stream of the Divine Triple Fold Goddess manifest as Isis.
The number seven is associated with the transcendent Virgin Goddess because seven is considered a "virgin" number. No number less than seven can be divided into it evenly, and no number can be multiplied by seven to produce another number, a "child", within the Holy Decad, considered to be the parameters of the original creation.
Every one of the ten numbers in the Decad can be divided evenly into 360, the number of degrees in a circle -- except for seven. The heptagon consists of seven literally unmeasurable, thus virginal, angles, and another elusive, virginal angle from its center to its corners. Thus the ever-virginal heptagon cannot be captured or constructed by the Cosmic Geometer. The regular heptagon is the smallest polygon that cannot be constructed using only the three tools of the geometer, the compass, the straightedge and the pencil.
Thus the heptagon is associated with the transcendent aspect of the Great Virgin Goddess known to the Greeks as Pallas Athena (or as Minerva to the Romans), who was said not to have been born from the womb, as other gods and goddesses, but rather to have sprung from Zeus' brow. When the numerological values of the letters of Pallas Athena's title "Pallas" or "Maiden" are added together, they total 343, which equals 7 X 7 X 7, the volume of a cube whose sides are seven units long. The cube is considered to be symbolic of material creation, so the role of the transcendent Creatrix is alluded to in the sacred geometry of her very title.
The seven sided star resonates with the very highest frequency of energy associated with the Great Goddess in her role as creatrix and sustainer of the Universe. The seven-sided star is associated with the transcendent energy signature of the Goddess Isis or Nuith, the Egyptian Goddess of the Night Sky, who is associated with divinely ordained synchronicities, the bliss of unconditional love blessed by harmonious constellations of stars, and the "mystico unio" of adepts on the path of meditation.
The seven sided star is sacred to lovers everywhere, because the seven sided star symbolizes the eternal yearning of the soul for Unity with the Source of all Creation, the unending desire of the incarnated Being for the Virgin Goddess who resides beyond this Space-Time continuum.
When a human being enters into a love relationship with another human being, whether that be a relationship based upon mutual receptivity and affinity, karma, or an unwavering desire for a partnership designed to accelerate the spiritual development of both parties, there is a magical moment when the Universe seems to signal its approval of the Union.
Lovers could tell a million stories about the crazy chain of coincidences that brought them together in this life. The synchronicities that manifest in the outer world to bring the two lovers together are a reflection of the pure inner desire for Unconditional Love that burns in the hearts of the two aspirants.
Spiritual students around the world could tell a million stories about the amazing string of unusual events that brought them to their Teachers. It is quite common for the student to be "guided" to the Teacher when the time is right. "When the student is ready, the Teacher will come," as they say.
This type of synchronistic meeting is also the reflection in the outer world of a pure desire for Divine Love and accelerated spiritual advancement.
So whether you desire a pure and uplifting love relationship or accelerated spiritual development in your life, the Virgin Goddess will oversee your efforts and respond to your desire -- if it is pure and free of the "lust of result". In other words, you must be willing to accept the Design of the Universe, and in asking for the Grace of the Virgin Goddess, you must be willing to accept her Guidance, even if it lead you to Realms far removed from what you picture in your mind's eye as an answer to your prayers.
If you desire a Greater Love in your life, lift your eyes unto the Night Sky and sing the praises of She who Illuminates the Night and Gives Life Upon the Earth, for she is also your Mother and She loves you dearly.
The seven sided Star of Isis is one conduit for Her Love and Light to reach the Earth. May that Love and Light be grounded within your Being and your Life.
This pendant has been cleaned with Universal Life Force Energy, and given an energy attunement using Reiki, a Japanese technique of energy healing, so it will continue to receive and transmit Universal Life Force Energy direct from the Source of Creation. It is ready for you to program according to your own needs and desires.
