By the Greco-Roman era, many of her(Isis) priests and priestesses had a reputation for wisdom and healing, and were said to have other special powers, including dream interpretation and the ability to control the weather, which they did by *braiding or not combing their hair.* The latter was believed because the Egyptians considered knots to have magical powers.
I thought this was really cool. I was reading Isis's Wikipedia page and they started talking about "knot magick" in her priesthood. Could this be part of the origins of cord magick? Who knows? It's really cool to read about this though and then realize people still the and untie knots as a part of magick today. Any thoughts on this?
