I is for Isis and Osiris positions

I for one use the Isis and Osiris positions when calling the Lord and Lady during ritual. I know they'e Egyptian gods, but I'd like to learn more about these positions, so on to the research...

These positions are also referred to as simply the God and Goddess Positions or Postures. According to the Encyclopedia of Wicca and Witchcraft, the God or Osiris Posture represents burial, and while a bowed head in this position refers to the Slain God or Harvest Lord, a raised head symbolizes the god renewed, Sun God, or Lord of Vegetation. The Goddess Posture is similar to Neolithic Goddess symbols found in Old Europe. It also resembles the ka symbol of Egypt, which refers to the spirit body double of the physical body.
