Feast of Weret Hekau

Nebet Het has the epithet Weret Hekau (Great of Magic or Magician). Celebrate Her as a goddess of magic today.

Words Spoken by the Mistress of the Uraeus

The Uraeus is the coiled cobra goddess who is a symbol of a fiery goddess of protection and an Eye of Ra. Honor Nebet Het as an Eye of Ra. Offer candles to the Lady of Flame.

Offering Sacrifice to Nebet Het and Wesir

This festival is on the 13th of Boedromion (mid-September) which is why on the Egyptian calendar I put it on 2nd Akhet Day 13 (2nd Akhet is September in my calendar). During this festival, They were offered milk, water, honey (mixed with the water or could be mixed with the milk too), fruit and cockerel (today, we could offer other meats such as chicken or beef). You could also offer barely or wheat to purify the space within Greek religious practice or you could offer bread or pasta as an offering instead or in addition to that.
