Isis is the goddess of motherhood and fertility, the sister and wife of the God Osiris. Isis is the goddess of the moon, also known as the White Goddess. She has been described as an “enchantress” and “goddess of magic,” known for her skills using words of power. Isis is credited with teaching medicine to mankind. She is one of the few Egyptian deities to be depicted with wings, which some say represent the wind, but are also aspects of the nurturing, protective qualities of the goddess.
