Just One More Step and Still Need Help for a Future Ritual.

Hello Everyone,

I just completed my Second Degree Ritual Robes exam and I got a 92%. I think that I might do the final exam next week. That is if I'm not that busy. That reminds me I have to schedule that in my phone. Yes, my cell phone is also an agenda.

And I haven't gotten any response for some suggestions as to a future ritual that I am wanting to do next year. I would like to do a Samhain ritual based on the Story of Isis and Orisis (However you spell his name). That story does fit as to what Samhain is all about. I am wondering if anybody has done something like this or done a ritual with an Egyptian theme to it. Besides this will be the second ritual that I have organized.

My first one was at Lugh. That was all about Animal Shamanism. I'm just thinking about what the Ritual class mentioned that a ritual should be done from the heart. I didn't memorize my lines, but when I opened the circle, I remember that my arms automatically shot upwards welcoming all the bird spirits (I was opening the East). And by the way, my main totem animal is not a bird, I did east because I know that there was a Taltos story (The Taltos where Hungarian Shamans, and both of my parents were born in Hungary. I was born in Canada.) that had to do with the Turul bird that represented Hungary.

I was going to go on with that story, but I wanted to focus little more on my very first ritual. I wanted all the animal kingdom to be represented. As I mentioned, birds where in the East, Reptiles and Amphibians where in the South, Water creatures were in the West, and land animals where in the North. And instead of the God and Goddess, it was Above and Below. The below was represented by burrowing animals and above was represented by all the flying insects (Yes, I wanted to include both burrowing and flying insects as well).

But that theme did not have anything to do with Lugh except that most of the animals were out and about during that time of year.

Now, my second ritual does have something to do with Samhain. So I am wondering if there is someone that knows the story of Isis and Orisis better than I do. I would like to present that as a play.

Sincerely,
Midnight Starr

Here is the saga as I understand it ....

Isis was the sister /wife of Osiris and the mother of the god Horus.

well loved by his people. His brother, Set, was jealous (some stories say he wanted Isis also) and plotted against Osiris.

Set did numerous things to rid himself of his brother. But probably the most familiar crime he commited against his brother was to cut him into pieces and scater those pieces throughout Egypt.

Sister/Wife Isis , along with her sister Nephthys, searched all the land to find the pieces of her husband and found therm... I have read that she foud all but one, but I cant seem to find out what piece was missing.

She brought those pieces to Thoth, Lord of Magic, who implored Anubis Lord of the Underworld for help and together they performed the ritual of life and the breath of life entered Osiris once more. Some say that is when Horus was concieved.

But it was believed taht nothing that has died may stay in the land of the living, so Osiris went to the land of Duat, the home of the dead. Anubis yielded teh throne to Osiris and there he rules.

This goes on into teh story of the Battle between Horus and Set...which all ties in....but in my way of thinking is another story.

Set was hunting one night and came across the body of Osiris. Enraged, he tore the body into fourteen pieces and scattered them throughout the land. Isis gathered up all the parts of the body, less the phallus (which was eaten by a fish)

Hello All,

Thanks for the comments. But I am also looking for help with costume and how to open the quarters as well.
