The Lunaires, Lunar ones, are those who worship the Moon, as those who adorn their temples with the Crescent moon; and Isis was Moon goddess of ancient Egyptians.

The Oracle, if we know our history, we might be tempted to consider Greece, the most important oracles of Greek antiquity were Pythia, priestess to Apollo at delphi, and the oracle of Dione and Zeus at Dodona in Epirus. Other temples of Apollo were located at Didyma on the coast of Asia Minor, at Corinth and Bassae in the peloponnese, and at the islands of delos and Aegina in the Aegean Sea. Or, Walter Burkert, observes that "Frenzied women from whose lips the god speaks" are recorded in the Near East as in Mari in the second millennium BC and in Assyria in the first millennium BC. In Egypt the goddess Wadjet (eye of the moon) was depicted as a snake-headed woman or a woman with two snake-heads. Her oracle was in the renowned temple in Per-Wadjet (Greek name Buto). The oracle of Wadjet may have been the source for the oracular tradition which spread from Egypt to Greece. Evans linked Wadjet with the Minoan snake goddess, a chthonic deity and one of the aspects of the Great Mother.
