Aset’s Yearly Cycle

Kiya Nicoll, author of The Traveller’s Guide to the Duat: Amenti on Two Deben a Week, wrote a post on her blog which inspired the musings below: Calendric Rhythms

After reading her post, I had these thoughts about Aset’s Yearly Cycle. So here are my musings.

And now I’m thinking of my own Aset Yearly Post where Akhet is Her in Mourning and Change (Transformation is a type of change). I am also reminded that Her Marriage Festival and the Mysteries are right next to each other. Peret is where Aset and Heru avenge Wesir and Heru is established at King. Aset here is the King-Maker and Avenging Goddess. Shomu are the months of the Heat of the Eye of Ra, the solar and stellar brightness permeate all of creation from both the Seen and Unseen realms (Aset has a lot of fire festivals here both solar and stellar ones). And the Days Upon the Year bring renewal, dissolution of the old and rebirth for Aset is born on Her Day and on New Year’s as the Star Sopdet bringing the power of the flood to being again.

Thank you for such a great post! I’m having thoughts!
