Updates on Projects

In case you missed it, I have published Magician, Mother and Queen.

I have finished and am preparing to publish another poetry book. The title of this now is Divine Words, Divine Praise:  Poetry of the Holy Powers.  I have sent it in to the formatters.

I have sent in the permissions for Lady of the Sky: Ancient Hymns of the Goddess Aset from the Temple of Dendera.  We’ll see what they say.  I’m still waiting.

I have been compiling all the material for this book She Who Speaks Through Silence:  An Anthology of Nebet Het (Nephthys).  I am still waiting on some submissions. 

I am compiling a compilation of scholarly papers I wrote in Graduate school (and afterward) about various goddesses, Orishas and a saint (Mary); and I have one other essay about women’s healing and talismanry (I know it doesn’t fit, but I have no idea where else I could publish it.  I may take it out and publish it by itself. I’m not sure.).   I’m thinking of making this into another book.  My working title is Holy Lady, Holy Queen:  Papers on the Feminine Divine.

 

 

Happy Aset Luminous!

Festival Names:  Procession of Aset, the Bright One, Mother of God a.k.a. Aset Luminous

This festival commemorates Aset’s nightly search by torchlight for Her husband Wesir.  In modern times, paper boats are made (with written petitions on them) and they are placed in water with a tealight on top.

Aset is a goddess of sovereignty, kingship, magic of all kinds, life-power, personal power and authority, writing, words, gaining knowledge, honoring one’s ancestors, ancestral lineage and traditions, dreams, family relationships, self-love, alignment of the souls and healing.  She is also a goddess of Heaven, starlight, the night sky and the star Sopdet (Sirius).

For offering ideas, go here: Offerings of Aset.

I channeled this message from Aset about this festival.

(This is included in my latest book, Queen of the Road)

Aset Luminous (Aset, the Fiercely Bright One)

by Chelsea Bolton

What are you doing for Her festival?

What will you do today for the Fiercely Bright One?

Light candles or lamps?  Sing a hymn?  Perform ritual before Her shrine?  What will you offer to the Lady?

What will you do today for the Mother of God?  The one who gave birth to Heru in the Marshes?  The sole Mother who took care of Her son?

What will you do for Aset, the Fiercely Bright One?  The One who leads the way in the darkness, dispelling shadows with Her light?  The stellar and solar goddess of the dawn.

What will you do today?  What will you accomplish?  What will you profess?

What will you ask Me in your letter?  What prayers and hopes will the boats carry on the water, with My light guiding the way?

What will you ask Me to dispel in your lives?  What will you ask Me to cultivate?

What will you do for the Fiercely Bright One?  What will you ask of the Brightest of Stars?  What will you ask of the Solar Goddess?

I am the Mistress of Magic.  I am the Goddess Who Knows Her Spells.  What I speak comes to pass.

Do not worry, child.  I will take care of you.

Who am I?  Am I not the Goddess who knows Ra’s Name?  Am I not the wisest and cleverest of Gods?  Am I not the Goddess of all magic, all heka, all life-power, all kau?

So what will you ask Me on My festival day?

The words you speak and write have power.  What I speak comes to pass.  What you write is your heart’s desire.

For what you do, what you say and what you write will become.

Update, Tendonitis

Hey, folks!  I’ve been away for awhile.  My right hand was hurting again and I went to the specialist.  I have tendonitis.

So I’ve had to wear a brace with a splint while I sleep and take pain medicine.  I also couldn’t use the computer for over two weeks.

I’m doing much better now, but I’m still trying to be careful and limit my time typing or using the computer much.

I have sporadically been working on Magician, Mother and Queen.  It’s almost done.  I’ll keep you all updated.
