What to Build, What to Take Away

So I’ve been doing a lot of execrations and cleansing myself of past mistakes and darkness. It was suggested to me to add healing to that and to build something from it too. I’ve done some healing as well. Maybe not enough. I should do more of that too.

So I’m going to ask Aset and Khnum and Ptah and possibly Heqat for help.

I mentioned to Aset what I wanted to build and She said that was a lot to build in a short amount of time.

So maybe I should focus on one or two of them at a time.

Here is my list so far of what I (eventually) wanted to build:

*design a better shrine room
*a small library (read: bookshelf) for Aset and Egypt (I have this. I need a few more books)
*design a ritual for Aset for nighttime
*finish and publish Lady of Praise, Lady of Power (Aset Hymnal)
*finish and publish Aset’s Oracle book
*finish and publish Aset’s Essay book
*Finish and publish Aset’s Festival/Ritual book (I’ll make this an anthology, since I can’t do this on my own)

Fiction Writing
*write the wolf demon/sorceress story
*write female shonen-type magical story
*write magical girl warrior story

I agree that this is too much to do. I’m more of a sprinter than a marathon runner when it comes to working. I work intensely for a short time and then I stop. I also get overwhelmed very easily.

Things I need to work on or learn to work within the boundaries of myself. I also need to learn to say: this is who I am and these are my boundaries and don’t apologize for it.

I can apologize for inappropriate behavior, but not for being myself.

What do I need? What do I want? What do I desire?

These are the questions I have to answer before I can go too far forward.

Brightest of Light

Kiya Nicoll, author of The Traveller’s Guide to the Duat: Amenti on Two Deben a Week
wrote a blog post about the calculation of calendars and the position of Sopdet.

The post is here: I Love it when a plan comes together

What she found out was that the date where the sun and Sopdet are closest? Aset Luminous.

If anyone is interested, here are links to Kiya’s book:

Link: Isis and Bread

Here is a great post about divine bread and the Goddess Aset/Isis by Isidora Forrest, Priestess of Isis and author of Isis Magic and Offerings to Isis.

Here is the post: The Divine Bread of Isis.

And now I’m hungry for garlic bread!

I also have an update! I have a few more pages left to translate Aset’s epithets from the LAGG! I’m on page 76 and I need to get to page 78 (I skipped ahead and already did most of 78-81). I’m almost done! Yay!

Strongest of the Gods Journal

For those who don’t know, “Red Week” was a week long celebration of the ancient Egyptian God Set, Lord of storms, change and the desert. He is the strongest of Gods to slay Apep every day so that dawn may come. (He does this in tandem with Aset, the Strongest of Goddesses).

Anyway, here is a journal containing hymns, stories and other writings about the Red Lord. This was put together by the Kemetic Orthodox House of Netjer Temple.

Oracle: Call Upon Me

Call Upon Me
by TahekerutAset

Be well cared for.
Be well rested.
Be in love with who you are.
Treat yourself as you would a lover.
Treat yourself as you would another.
Respond with compassion when you are hurting.
Respond with strength when you falter.
Respond with courage when you waver.
And remember, child.
I come to those who ask.
So call upon Me
when you falter,
when you waver,
when you are in need of healing.
Call upon Me
and I will come.
