King Byblos and Queen Astarte


Between the House of Knowledge in the Heavens and the
House of Flowers we support our palace with a mighty
Tree who is rooted in the earth and reaches with its
branches towards the heavens.

King Biblos The leafs of this Tree touch the night sky and gently
caress the Goddess Nuit.

Thoth In the mean time Isis is still looking for the lost body of her
husband Osiris. She wanders for years, weeping and searching
for the casket. Often she hears rumors that a golden coffin has
been seen floating along the Nile by the inhabitants of one of the
villages. She keeps following the rumors and so she crosses the
border, Egypt and comes into the land of Byblos.
Here the rumors speak of a wonderful tree that suddenly had started
to grow on the shore, exactly on the borderline between land and
sea. This news reached Isis and she becomes hopeful to finally
find the body of her dead husband. Isis asks every man and
woman if they have seen coffin that contains Osiris. In the end
she learns that the coffin became entrapped in a tamarisk bush.
As if by magic the bush shot up and became a magnificent tree.
The towering tree enclosed the ornate box within its huge trunk.
Isis learns that the king of Byblos fell in love with this tree so
much that he had it cut down and made into a giant pillar to
support the roof of his palace. Now Isis knows for sure that the
coffin came ashore here. Because of the divine presence of the
Body of Osiris, the bush had sprouted and grown into a large
tree, which now supports the Palace of the King. Isis and Anubis
immediately travel to that palace. When they have arrived there
Isis tries to come into contact with personnel of the palace. She
meets the Queen’s maidens. She tells them she is an Egyptian
head dresser. She pleats their hair and she breaths, and the girls
get surrounded by a divine scent. This attracts the attention of
Queen Astarte and the queen took a liking to her and she asked
Isis to take care of her young son, the prince. In this way Isis and
her son Anubis are able to enter into the palace and they find the
Tree trunk.

Anubis and Isis go to Malkuth of the Tree

Anubis I smell a divine smell. I smell the nearness of my father.


Look at this gigantic pillar, it grows right towards heaven.

Isis I agree, this must be the right place to look for the body of
my deceased husband. Look here to the surface of the
wood, I see the gold still glittering which is the remnant of
the coffin in which Osiris was captured. I will take on the
job that is offered to me by Queen Astarte. I will nurture
her child for her. This gives me the opportunity to be close
to the tree and the coffin. At last I will be near to my
husband.

Astarte gives the little baby prince to Isis.


I like you, you lady from Egypt; I trust you with the care
for my child. I can see your fine manners; you must be a
well educated lady. I think my child will be able to learn a
lot of you, and of the fine manners of Egypt.

Isis goes to Yesod.


It is night little baby. As I take care for you I start to love you.
Sleep little prince, I put you down in a soft bed of straw at the
bottom of the Tree. I will weave a spell of protection about you.
You will become immortal by this, you will live forever. I will
start to nurture you with the divine juices of my healing hands
instead of with thy mothers milk. 1 will rub your skin with the fat of
salamanders. I put you in a bed of burning coals and incense.
I will wrap you into a spell that will make you immortal.
Transformation into a swallow

Anubis puts a little Myrrh perfume on his hand and holds it


under Isis' nose as if feeding birds by hand.
See, all the birds of Punt
Come down on Egypt,
Pregnant with Myrrh.
The first bird that comes down
Is attracted by my bait.
She is as fragrant as the perfume of Punt
Her claw is saturated with balsam
How I long to do this
To free Osiris with you by my side
I want to be with you
When he utters his cry of freedom
My bird, pregnant with Myrrh.

Thoth speaks while Isis lays down the baby in the bed of straw..
Isis starts a ritual that needs to be done for 28 days and then the
child will shine eternal as a night star. To do this the child will
sleep amidst the flames while the Goddess transforms herself
into a swallow and flutters about mournfully chirping for her
dead husband. In the night she brings him to the pillar where the
coffin is hidden. There she lights a fire and speaks the magic
words she lays down

The sleeping boy in the flames. The fire starts to bum away
a1l that is human in him, but she does not watch over him,
she turns herself into a swallow and begins to fly around
the pillar, wailing and mourning over her dead husband.

Isis I am Isis…..(magical name) who is truth-speaking, I


am a Ment bird. I am a Ment bird and the Scorpion
Goddess, and the daughter of Ra. 0 you gods, may
your savor be sweet. A flame goes up from the horizon.

o you Osiris who are the Djed. Firmly rooted in the


Big City of the Other World. I have brought the snake
who guards his coils. Give me your hands, and I will
safely arrive on the Island of Fire.

Bow down to me, then I will tell what I have seen.


Horus is in command of the Sacred Bark, and the
Throne, the Mother, the Wife of his father Osiris has
been given to him.

While I fly as a swallow and encircles the Djed, Seth is


bounds because of what he has done.

allotted to me, and I am obedient to Osirsis. I fly up along
the Djed and I make an inspection and I return to speak
about what I see.

I will hide myself and witness what happens.

Isis stands, walks to the moon altar, caresses the child, raises
it high so that everybody sees it, and puts it in the middle of the
circle of flames.

Astarte screams and goes to the moon altar and takes out the
child.

Isis You have broken the spell to make your child immortal. I
am Isis, Queen of Upper and Lower Egypt, Widow of
Osiris the King. This magic would have turned your child
into a god. But now his immortality is lost. I have come
to Byblos because the Pillar which upholds your palace
Incorporates- the coffin of my dead husband. I want to
have this Pillar, because Osiris deserves a proper funeral.

wood in oil, wrapped them in [me linen and asked the queen to
keep them in the temple of Byblos.

oceans to remind of this mystery.
