Anniversary of the Founding of the FOI: March 21

March 18- Celebrate the Birth of the FOI on March 21: “Earth Magic of Transformation” in Urania. Rite by Attunement for All FOI Members are free to join in by around the world on March 21st, Spring Equinox, which is the actual FOI Birthday/Date of the Founding - either as full ceremonial, or reading it, and visualising it.

There doesn't have to be a specific time as that is difficult to coordinate internationally, without it being inconvenient for some. All the rites can be done solo, by reading aloud, perhaps with a candle, and or incense, or more elaborate if you choose! Relax beforehand, and anoint your brow with water before you start. Make sure you won't be interrupted by phones or people. Cats and dogs usually like to join in!

Registration within the Fellowship of Isis

Registration within the Fellowship of Isis

Just a friendly reminder: the heads of all centers are responsible for keeping their own records of titles conferred via consecration or ordination, and all degrees earned. This is in accordance with the wishes of FOI Co-Founder Olivia Robertson, who continued the gradual decentralization of the Fellowship of Isis, a process she began in 1999. Any members who wish to send copies of their records to FOI Central for listings on the website or for inclusion in Isian News are warmly welcome 
to do so!

Oracles of the Seasons: Oracle of the Goddess Tara


Priestess: (Invocation) I invoke Thee, the Goddess Tara! Thou art the Pristine Spirit, the Ultimate Nature and the clear Light of Heaven. Thou art the One Who encloses the Universe. Help us to rise above the sorrows and follies of this material world!

Oracle: Have Peace. Peace is now, in your heart, if you will accept it. You will not attain Spiritual Light by refusing to face the darkness. The darkness not only contains your past but also, through transmutation, your future. Have courage. I have gone before you as a mortal woman and shall come again. I breathe my life into all beings and I suffer with them and share their ignorance and follies!

The greatest evil you fear is death. There is no death. While you are identified with a body of clay you find it difficult to enjoy the bliss of the heavens. You are beset by grief, hatred, violence and cruelty. But you also acquire merit through overcoming these obstacles to Illumination. There are souls who never incarnate upon the earth. And these shine like the stars with pure light. But those such as yourselves who struggle bravely every day with its worries and sorrows gallantly walk backwards into the future! You do not know even what your next day will bring.

The peace I bring is faith in the Divine Love, Buddhi. Take my lotus of ever-renewing life and so accept the future, whatever this may bring you. Know that the delusions of this earth become the material for creation in the Heavens. My magic is renewal. I do not ask you to reject evil, but to transmute it through understanding into good. I am Tara of the Many Selves: of the Heavens, of the dreaming moon, of the harsh earth. I enclose all these Selves in my rainbow Halo that encompasses all beings in my eternal Love, Beauty and Truth.

Message from Isis Oasis - Northern California Wildfires

Because so many of you have written to inquire about the well-being of those who attended the FOI Convocation, and were worried about the staff and the property of Isis Oasis, the following is posted here:

Received from deTraci Regula
Director, Isis Oasis Sanctuary
October 17, 2017

We are blessed. Fires in the area surrounding us are contained. Thankfully the Advisory Evacuation notice was lifted. All of our animals have been safely returned. Isis Oasis is currently hosting evacuees. The Santa Rosa Evacuation Center has been sending those in need to us for shelter. There is lingering smoke here and in other areas of Sonoma County.

We are so grateful for messages of love, support and prayers received from members worldwide. At times the situation caused us great concern for our safety. We felt blessed by the prayers of those who hold us in their hearts. We are grateful for what we have, and for what we can still offer to the community, as so many around us have suffered devastating loss. We give thanks above all, to Isis, Our Mother, for Her strength and protection. May we go forth united in loving intent in Her Name.

Because of the fires we have received several cancellations of upcoming stays and events. Added to this, we are using our resources to aid those who have come for shelter on our property. Donations are welcome. You may donate through PayPal, our e-mail address is More information is available on our website:

Another way to offer support, is for those who are able to attend our upcoming inauguration of a new annual event for Samhain, consisting of dinner and a magical play written by FOI/TOI priestess Annie Waters on Sunday, November 5. The theme of this year’s event focuses on the Mystery of Isis and Osiris, and in particular, his resurrection and rebirth. For more information write to us at the e-mail address above, or call our office at 707-857-4747.

Thank you so very, very much. May you all be richly blessed.
