The lady “Ast / Ise / Isis, ” female creativity archetype.
Eze is considered a symbol of fertility and motherhood and played many roles in history and mythology as a female and creative woman in ancient Egypt and throughout the ancient world.
Her name means (Queen of the Throne), so her headdress is an empty chair belonging to her murdered husband, Osiris, and she was an embodiment of the throne.
In the typical form of her Egyptian myth, Ast/Eze was the daughter of Geb (lord of the earth) and Nut (goddess of heaven), married her brother Osiris, and bore him Horus.
Ast was instrumental in restoring life to the body of her husband “Osiris” when he was killed by his brother “Set” and his associates, and using her magical skill, brought his body back to life after collecting the body parts that were scattered around the earth by “Set”, and it was believed that the river The Nile floods every year because of the tears of sadness that she shed over the death of her husband, Osiris. The drama of Osir’s death and resurrection was repeated every year during the rituals and celebrations that were held dramatically.
Most of the Egyptian nature was local and eventually spread to all the provinces of Egypt so that most of the cities in ancient Egypt were known to have a specific nature. Still, the origins of Isis are uncertain, and it is believed that she was originally an independent nature known from the pre-dynastic period (before 3100 BC). At Sebnetus (present-day Semnod) in the Egyptian Delta, the oldest written documents on Isa date back to the Fifth Dynasty.
And based on the association of her name with the throne, some early Egyptologists believed that the original function of Isis was that of (the throne of the mother). However, some recent studies indicate that aspects of this role came later, and the throne is known as (the mother of the king), and this concept fits in Good with either theory and may give insight into the thinking of the ancient Egyptians.
Eze was an important source of the king’s power, and in some cases, the king was depicted as her child, Horus, who sat on his father’s throne. Therefore, one of the king’s titles was the hurry nickname.
Natra Isa had its common rituals throughout Egypt. Its most important shrines in the late-era were in Behbeit El-Hagar, one of the villages of the Samanoud Center in the Gharbia Governorate in the Nile Delta. It began in Philae Island during King “Nakht-Anbo I” of the Thirtieth Dynasty about 380-362 BC.
The most common name is Isis, the Greek pronunciation of the Egyptian name “Ast.” Sirius and Sirius was one of the stars very loved by the Egyptians because his appearance was not only the beginning of the new year, but an announcement of the approaching annual flood of the Nile, which was a renewal of the youth and prosperity of Egypt, as it embraced the earth and gave fertility with its water as the goddess of cultivated lands and fields, and the goddess of rebirth and donor life
Ise was considered the great lady of the dut world (underworld/underworld) who helped the blessed dead in the world of Osiris, as she was considered the nether “Amenet” who had a close relationship with Hathor and Isa in their role in the other world, so it is possible to look at the nether “moment”. As it is not independent of them, but rather an alternative personality to them, and in this capacity, she shared with Osiris the adjective “giving life” as it provides food and living for the dead.
In a relatively early period in Egyptian history, Isa absorbed the characteristics of all the local nitro, such as Nekhbet, Neet, Bastet, Hathor, etc. It was sometimes identified as female nitrous that emerged from the abyss of primitive waters from which all life arose. It is impossible to limit the attributes of “Isa”, who have water nitro powers, earthly nitro powers, heavenly powers, magical powers, underworld queen powers, and a woman.
Isa was honoured first in Egypt, as it is the only nectar revered by all Egyptians alike in all the regions of Egypt, and whose influence was so widespread that in later times it became fully synonymous with the Greek goddess “Demeter”, the goddess of nature, plants and agriculture when the Greeks in the period Greek Egypt, and to the Romans under the name “Ceres”, the goddess of agriculture and agriculture, where she was met with the Greek goddess Demeter, After the conquest of Egypt by Alexander the Great, the cult of Isis spread throughout the Greek and Roman world.
In the context of ancient Greek art and culture during the Hellenistic period in Egypt, which represents the period between the death of Alexander the Great initiated by Ptolemy I Soter until the annexation of the heart of classical Greece to the Roman Empire, Isis / Isis in that period became known as the Queen of Heaven. In the Hellenistic era, Isis acquired a new rank as a goddess A pioneer in the Mediterranean world, she was known as (Isis of Ten Thousand Names)!!! … Among these Greek and Roman names (Isis, Queen of Heaven) .. Isis had temples throughout Europe, Africa and Asia. Shrines and statues were carved for her from alabaster from the third century BC, and a statue of her was found in Macedonia.
The myth of Isis and Osiris was a very important legend during the Greek and Roman period on the Greek island of Delos, which is one of the most important mythological, historical and archaeological sites in Greece, and in the Italian “Pompeii,” a Roman city where about twenty thousand people lived near the Gulf of Naples in Italy. Today, nothing remains of the city except its ancient ruins.
In the classical Egyptian period, in the Book of Exodus in the Day, popularly known as the Book of the Dead, Isa was described as the one who gives birth to heaven and earth, recognizes the orphan and widow, shelters the weak, and seeks justice among people.
During the period of the Old Kingdom, Isis was represented as the assistant and protector of the deceased king …. Thus, she had a funerary association. Thus, it is not surprising that Isis played a central role in the chants and rituals.

Egyptian magic, especially those related to protection and healing, and in many spells, her name appears more than eighty times in the texts of the pyramids.
In addition, Eze was also represented as the mother of the “Four Suns of Horus” (the Four Sons of Horus), which protected the canopic jars containing the king’s internal organs. More specifically, Eze was regarded as the protector of the liver (Emseti urn, human-headed, the soul that protects the liver), as paragraph 157 of the texts on the coffins in this regard mentions that their father is (Horr the Great), and their mother was Isis. Chapter 112 of the Book of Exodus in the Daytime (Book of the Dead) indicates that the sons of Horus were their fathers. “Hoor” and their mother is “Eze”. By the Middle Kingdom, funerary texts began to be used by members of Egyptian society in general after they were limited to the royal family. She was seen as a mother instead of her role as a wife, and she was seen as the king’s mother, and the king is often depicted in some scenes while breastfeeding from her breast in the form of a woman or a tree.
With the integration of religious centers in ancient Egypt, the Egyptian religion became more unified, and when the star of “Ra” appeared in Heliopolis, “Ra” was merged with Horus, and Hathor was associated with “Ra” in some areas as the mother of “Ra”, and Isa began to merge with Hathor has absorbed and acquired some of its aspects, and after absorbing many of the roles of Hathor, her head covering (the throne chair) was sometimes replaced by the head cover of Hathor (cow horns with a sun disk in the middle), and due to her qualities as a protective mother, in addition to the lively aspect that she gained through Her legend and roles became the patroness of the seas and sailors, and her worship spread throughout the world with the movement of merchant ships that were spread in the Mediterranean and the ports of Isis were located in the Arabian Sea and the Black Sea, and the inscriptions showed successively in Gaul, Spain, Pannonia, Germany, Arabia, Asia Minor and Portugal many The chapels, obelisks and statues, were erected in her honor, even in Britain, and temples dedicated to her were built in Iraq, Greece and ancient Rome.
The cult of Isis continued in the late period until the sixth century AD on the island of Philae in Aswan. The temple was not destroyed in implementing the royal decree issued in 380 AD to destroy all Egyptian temples. This tolerance was due to an ancient treaty between the Blemmyes and the Nobadia as one party and Diocletian, the other party.
Cautious historians, including Dijkstra, offer us a more balanced view of the truth of the matter as to whether the end of ancient cults at elephants directly aroused a Christian desire to exterminate “pagan” cult or by a slow process of change, some fate, or the forgetting of the ancient cult.
Here, attention must be drawn to the text of Priscuc de Panium, the Greek historian of the fifth century, which revolves around an issue related to the local population who bear the name of the Blemmyes and the Nobadians (the Blemmy are local ethnic groups to whom the consent or (possibility) to go from time to time or at least once in The year to the island of Philae to worship the goddess Isis … It seems clear that the situation of both the Blemmyes and the Nobadians remains special. It can be reasonably believed that they cannot be mixed with the Egyptian family of the priests of Isis Philae; this is confirmed by a papyrus that is a petition written by (Christian) priests from Kom Ombo. In the north, they complain about looters who carried out raids around 567 AD and reached the end of their area, tens of kilometres north of Philae, and consider them to be Blemmyes.
The Temple of Philae dedicated to Isis was the last ancient Egyptian temples in which rituals and worship of Isis were held, as she was considered as a wife and in it, an ideal mother, the goddess of nature and magic, and the friend of enslaved people, sinners, craftsmen, and persecutors who also listened to the prayers and hymns of the rich, clairvoyants, aristocrats and rulers. His worship of Isis in the late ages with the beginning of the Christian era cause great anxiety and tension due to its popularity and acquisition of knowledge and magical ability. Because those abilities and knowledge can only be achieved through cosmic forces and divine talents, that worship was attacked with all cruelty. In practice, its supporters were many.
It is believed that the cult of Isis reached Pompeii around the year 100 BC. After destroying the first temple in an earthquake in 62 AD, it was completely reconstructed, and the numbers and decorations were provided. The rites “liturgical” (and “liturgy” is a Greek word meaning “service”) He collected them as liturgies, meaning social worship and prayers of all kinds); these services were full of rituals and singing and were held daily, with the temple’s opening every morning until closing at night.
Finally, the myth of Isis represents our feminine qualities – intuition, spiritual abilities,
And love, mercy, yin energies, caring mother, high priestess, an allegorical goddess in all ancient myths (Egyptian, Greek, Roman) … they are the essence of the feminine energy that is a part of us all.
