Updates: Many Books

I sent Lady of the Temple: Ancient Hymns for Nephthys to the formatter! I’m still waiting on the cover for Flaming Lioness: Ancient Hymns for Egyptian Goddesses.

The next book I’ll hopefully finish is either Solar Lioness: Ancient Hymns for Sekhmet or Solar Flares and Sunbeams: An Anthology for Ra.

Creation Mother: Ancient Hymns for Mut (working title) is going to take longer as I’m hoping to be able to include some if not all of the Crossword Hymn to Mut in it.

by TahekerutAset

I am an Eye of Ra

I am the Goddess of the Star,

Sopdet, Sirius

I am the Goddess of the Moon

When it is Full

When it is New

I am the Goddess of the Sun

The Solar Eye, the Fierce Goddess

I wield Flame, Magic and Blade

I am the Lioness, the Leopard, the Cobra

I am the Avenging Eye

I am the Lioness appeased at the Isheru-Lake

I am the Cobra whose tears created Humankind

I am the Raging One, I am the Pacified Lady

I am the Wandering Eye

I am the Goddess who returns and departs

I am the Sun as it moves throughout the Year

Days grow longer, Days get shorter

as I leave and return, as I return and leave;

This is My cycle

as the Goddess of the Solstice

in the Winter and Summer

And this too is My cycle

as Sopdet appears and departs from view

as the Moon reflects Ra’s light

as it waxes and wanes

All of these cycles are Mine

as the Eye of Ra.

Mothers’ Night

Mothers’ Night (Modranecht) is a holiday celebrating the Mothers, a group of ancestral, prosperity and abundance-giving goddesses called the Disir or Matronae.  This celebration was on the eve of the Winter Solstice.

Frigga (Frigg) is associated with the Disir/Matronae and is honored on this night.  (Freyja can also be honored here too,  but this is about Frigga, so).

Frigga (Frigg) is the Germanic Goddess of the home, hearth, family, childbirth, weaving, spinning, craft-work, artisans, wisdom, folk magic and fate. She is the Queen of Asgard, First of the Goddesses, Mother of the Gods, Queen of Heaven, Wife of Odin, and Mother of Baldr.  She is a seeress as well and is the only one besides Odin himself who can sit on Hlidskjalf and see throughout all the Nine Realms.

She is also the Goddess of the Ancestral Mothers (Disir) and Norns.  She weaves the clouds and thus, the weather. She is the Goddess of the Orion’s Belt.

Updates

I have been busy in November with health issues and getting  ready for the holidays.

The formatting is complete for my newest book: Flaming Lioness: Ancient Hymns for Egyptian Goddesses.  I’m waiting on the book cover.   This book may not be published until 2019.

My Books Coming in 2019:

  • Flaming Lioness: Ancient Hymns for Egyptian Goddesses.
  • Solar Lioness: Ancient Hymns for Sekhmet. 
  • Lady of the Temple: Ancient Hymns for Nephthys.
  • Solar Flares and Sunbeams: An Anthology for Ra.
  • Creation Mother: Ancient Hymns for Mut. 

Now some of you may be wondering, won’t the hymns in Flaming Lioness contain all of the content of Nephthys, Sekhmet and Mut’s hymnal compilations?  Well, yes and no.

Many of the hymns are the same in both books.  But, some of the hymns I wasn’t able to get into Flaming Lioness, so those will be included in the  other hymnal compilations.  Also the books for Sekhmet, Mut and Nephthys will also include a festival calendar and a long list of epithets.
