So, I have thinky thoughts   Leave a comment

So, I’ve been thinking about festival cycles and how to come up with a good cutic practice for Aset.

Obviously there are Feasts, Festivals and Processions of Aset. But there are also cycles. Yearly cycles. I’ve been looking at the worship of the Virgin Mary recently and she has feasts year-round and a monthly feast on the 21st of each month in the Coptic Orthodox Church. And these feasts are all about her life (birth, temple, immaculate conception, Theotokos, her mourning of Jesus etc).

This got me thinking about the yearly cycle of Aset life I did here: Aset’s Yearly Cycle and how I could build something from it.

She has tons of holidays and some of them are more low-key celebrations like for Feasts of Aset you could offer Her a feast or for Processions they could be oracle or divination times (unless they are specifically for Wesir, maybe). But Her Mythic Cycle is the point. Her stories are the point. These are Her Mysteries.

I think the holidays that need to have a separate festival ritual done for them are only a few times a year. Looking at Her divine relationships and Her stories and Her cycles, I’d have to say Her High Holy Days could be:

Natural Cycles
1-New Year (Sopdet appears and inundation)
12 to 24-Festival of Roses/Rhodophoria
20-Procession of the Goddess of Heaven Goes South to the Road (Sopdet; half-way point)

Her Mythic Life Cycle
4 to 21-Aset, Mother of God Gives Birth to Heru-sa-Aset
8 to 16-Festival of the Marriage of Aset, with the Beautiful Throne (Isis Nepherses), the Great Goddess
9 to 26-Entering the Temple of Aset-Shentayet (not sure if this is redundant as the Mysteries are in the same month)
18-30-Mysteries of Wesir
26 of 3 Shomu to 15 of 4 Shomu-Festival of the Birth of Aset, with the Beautiful Throne (Isis Nepherses), the Great Goddess (and a ritual can be adapted to be used for the other Birth of Aset festivals throughout the year)
2-Aset Luminous: Procession of Aset, the Brilliant, Mother of God (searching for Wesir; bright goddess festival)
Extra Day 4-Birth of Aset

I’m not sure what to do with these either. They aren’t Her Myth cycle or natural phenomena, but Her stellar and solar aspects and light aspects are very important.

Bright Festivals
Her Various Birth Festivals Throughout the Year
5 to 6 of March-Navigation of Aset/Isidis Navigium
21-Sacred Festival of Aset of Pharos (Isis Pharia)
25 of April-Sacrifice to Aset of Pharos (Isis Pharia)/Sacrum Phariae
26 of 3 Shomu to 15 of 4 Shomu-Festival of the Birth of Aset, with the Beautiful Throne (Isis Nepherses), the Great Goddess
28-Appearance of Sopdet
30-Burning the Widow’s Flame
2-Aset Luminous: Procession of Aset, the Brilliant, Mother of God

Here is a link to the festival calendar if anyone wants to see it: Aset Holidays.

Song of Light   2 comments

Okay, so I offered my dinner to Aset and I asked for help with writing a song.

Here is what I got:

Brightest of Ladies
Brightest of Lights
Come, join the Circle
Come join the rite!
Light the incense,
Burn the candles
Offer to the Goddess
On this night!
Pour out libations
Give to the Gods,
Thank the Ladies,
Thank the Lords.
Give to the Gods and You’ll never be bored.
Brightest of Ladies
Brightest of Lights
May You be blessed on this Holy Night!

Reminder: Remainder of April Festivals and Aset of Pharos   Leave a comment

Here are the festivals for the rest of the month of April.

1 Shomu/Pachons/April
21-Sacred Festival of Aset of Pharos (Isis Pharia)
25 of April-Sacrifice to Aset of Pharos (Isis Pharia)/Sacrum Phariae and Serapia
26-Festival of Roses/Rhodophoria
26 of April-Harvest Festival

Today is the Sacred Festival of Aset of the Pharos Lighthouse (Isis Pharia). I see the analogy here as the Lighthouse guiding ship through troubled waters, dispelling the darkness and showing the way with the brightest of lights.

I see Her as Fiercely Bright here. I see Her as a goddess who guides, who leads, who nurtures and provides, when asked.

I see the brightest of stars over the waters. I see Her ships filled with offerings on the waves–filled with offerings of bread, milk, water, meat, vegetables and fruits. I see the tresses of the ships adorned with roses–bright red, yellow and blue.

I see Her festival as a Goddess who weaves, who commands all things. She is the Goddess who knows Her spells and weaves them well. For the devotees. For Her Shemsu. For Her son and husband. For Herself.

I see the Lady of the Rivers, the Goddess of the Rains and the Lady of the Primordial Ocean as the Goddess invoked here. And I see Isis, Goddess of the Sea.

I see the Brightest of Lights and the Brightest of Stars. I see the Mourner and the Widow as She searches for Her husband.

Most of all, I see a fiercely bright, radiant Lady who stands with Her arms out, blessing those who leave offerings and call Her name.
