Aset, Auset, Isis, Calendar, Festivals

Month of Aset

Since it is January 1st, it is the first day of the month 2 Peret which is sacred to Aset. (Until I can make a machine do all the math for me: 2 Peret Day 1 will be January 1st and so on).

Here are the festivals for this month on the calendar I have put together:

2 Peret/Mechir/January

1 to 30-Sacred Month to Aset

1 to 8-Feast of Aset

Aset was offered wine, beer and meat during this festival.

2 of January-Advent of Isis (Greek/Roman)

Classical festival dealing with Aset/isis as rejoicing over finding Wesir.

3 of January-Navigation of Aset/Ploiaphesia/Isidis Navigium (Roman)

Aset/Isis was honored here along with the Roman Imperials. This was a festival about preparing for the Navigation season or the Navigation of Aset/Isis festival in March.

6-Feast of Aset, the Mourning Cow/Black Cow

Aset was honored as searching for Wesir in the form of a black-robed cow.
