I first encountered Aset (Isis) when I was nine years old. My Father came back from Egypt with a necklace with Her winged pendant on the chain. And I got George Hart’s Egyptian Myths as a present for Christmas that year. Needless to say, once I read up on Her, I was hooked. She was strong, beautiful, smart, cunning and fierce, loyal and compassionate. She was my kind of Goddess!
I’d been researching Her even since from Budge to more reputable Egyptology sources. I discovered Kemetic Reconstructionism in late 2002 and I haven’t looked back. I love re-building what the ancients left us and re-making it into something new and something we as modern people can use.
We are not the ancients. We never will be, but we can take what they left us and bring the spirit and praise of the Gods and Goddesses of ancient Egypt into our modern time.
May She always be honored! May She always be praised!
