One of the main annual festivals of Isis in the Egyptian calendar, honoring Queen Isis as the Ocean Star - or Stella Maris, as Mary would later be called in Latin -- the guide and protector of navigators. As the Egyptians identified Isis with the great star Sirius, she was a main beacon point in the sky for Egyptian sailors. And as her heliacal rising - that is, the moment each year when Sirius can first be seen rising in the east just before the rising of the Sun - always fell each year on July 26, the day that heralded the annual Nile flood, Isis in her star role embodied the boundless and eternal loam and fecundity of the river. On the evening of this festival, there were ceremonies and songs on boats that blazed with lamps and colors. This day is also an important time marker. It is now 140 days, or 14 decans (10-day "weeks") until a new flow of red water should begin the next Nile flood on July 26.
