Isidias Navigatum

We began holding Thames-Isis rituals in 2013, with Isidias Navigatum: Blessing of the Fleet ceremony.  Here is the original website entry for that event.

Thames-Isis: Isidias Navigatum 2013 (Blessing of the Fleet) Ritual

We are preparing to explore 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’). 0._Thames_Isis_Rituals_2013_-Pagan_Frontiers_of_London_-med

Saturday 3rd March 2013:

Blessing of the Fleet Ceremony (Isidias Navigatum). 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.

All Welcome to attend, to contact us and contribute with your creativity, knowledge & magic for these new explorations.3_isis_navigatum_altar_3rd_Marcg_2013
