Poem: No Darkness Can Withstand My Power

by Jeff Dahl

No Darkness Can Withstand My Power

by TahekerutAset

I am Aset, the Brightest Goddess in the Sky

I am Sopdet

I am the Solar Eye

I am the Moon when it is full

I am the stars filling the night sky with light

This is who I am

as the Brightest Goddess

I gleam

I glow

I shine

I illuminate all pathways, all roads

I dispel darkness

With light

I dispel fear

With candle flame

So, come to Me

When you are fearful

Come to Me

When you are afraid

And I will quell your fears

And I will give you the strength you need to endure

I am the Possessor of Strength

I am the Lady of Power

I burn away all fear with My flame

All darkness retreats from My light

For I am the Fiercely Bright One

And no darkness can withstand My power

Aset Luminous

Shrine of Aset with statues and lit candles
Shrine of Aset

Festival Names:  Procession of Aset, the Bright One, Mother of God a.k.a. Aset Luminous

Day: 4th Shomu, Day 2.

On my calendar this festival falls on July 2.

This festival commemorates Aset’s nightly search by torchlight for Her husband Wesir.  Candles, lamps and torches were lit for the Goddess.  Papyrus boats were launched in temple lakes.  The boats had prayers written on them with a light source to guide the way.

Ritual for Today

This ritual is what we do for this festival in the House of Netjer.

On Aset’s shrine you could have: an image or statue of the Goddess, a source of light from candles, lamps, LED candles or electric candles and offerings.

You will need paper and a pen or pencil or marker (not red).  You will also need a tealight and a lighter.

Write a letter, asking Aset for things you are thankful for.  Then on the other side, write a letter to Aset asking for things you need.  This paper later gets folded into the boat (start folding: thank you side up).

After the paper boats are made, fill a bowl, bathtub or sink with water.  A tealight is placed in each boat and they are put in the water.  The tealights are lit and the boats float on the water until the candles burn out.  (Please keep fire safety in mind).

Aset Luminous (Aset, the Fiercely Bright One)

by JewelofAset

What are you doing for Her festival?

What will you do today for the Fiercely Bright One?

Light candles or lamps?  Sing a hymn?  Perform ritual before Her shrine?  What will you offer to the Lady?

What will you do today for the Mother of God?  The one who gave birth to Heru in the Marshes?  The sole Mother who took care of Her son?

What will you do for Aset, the Fiercely Bright One?  The One who leads the way in the darkness, dispelling shadows with Her light?  The stellar and solar goddess of the dawn.

What will you do today?  What will you accomplish?  What will you profess?

What will you ask Me in your letter?  What prayers and hopes will the boats carry on the water, with My light guiding the way?

What will you ask Me to dispel in your lives?  What will you ask Me to cultivate?

What will you do for the Fiercely Bright One?  What will you ask of the Brightest of Stars?  What will you ask of the Solar Goddess?

I am the Mistress of Magic.  I am the Goddess Who Knows Her Spells.  What I speak comes to pass.

Do not worry, child.  I will take care of you.

Who am I?  Am I not the Goddess who knows Ra’s Name?  Am I not the wisest and cleverest of Gods?  Am I not the Goddess of all magic, all heka, all life-power, all kau?

So what will you ask Me on My festival day?

The words you speak and write have power.  What I speak comes to pass.  What you write is your heart’s desire.

For what you do, what you say and what you write will become.

Poem: In Every Sunbeam

In Every Sunbeam
by TahekerutAset

Sobek of the Nile is the purification god
Sobek of the Waters of the Nun
Light of the sun dispels darkness
The Light of Sobek and Ra dispels darkness
Ask for this light
Ask for this water to purify you
of grief, of rage, of fear
of helplessness, of powerlessness
Bring to yourselves strength, devotion, kindness
Bring to yourselves health, love and self-care
Be kind to yourselves in this darkness
Be kind to others
Know that We are with you in your grief and rage
Know that We are with you in your sorrow and fear
Know that We are with you
We walk with you through this
Now and forever
So says Aset, Mistress of Light
Lady of Life
I am in every sunbeam
in every starlight
in every candleflame
I am in every droplet of water
in every river, every stream
in every rainstorm
in all water in your homes
So listen now
Use this power
of light, of water
and purify yourselves
cleanse yourselves
in baths
in showers with buckets to pour over yourselves
Or use sacred soap
Or Florida Water
Or other cologne water
Or cense with incense
Burn candles in front of Our shrines
Ask Us to help you
and We will
We are with you
Always

Goddess Spell Books

I have a love-hate relationship with Goddess Spell Books.  On the one hand, I love them.  I love goddesses, learning about them and seeing many goddesses from all around  the globe  in one book warms my heart.  On the other, I often find some factual errors or a very simplistic view of the goddess in question.  Aphrodite gets pigeonholed into the love goddess archetype all the time.  And She is a love goddess, but She is also a war goddess, a goddess of roses, a sea goddess, a mourning goddess and a Lady of the Graves.

Isis and Hathor get confused all the time.  Hathor is the goddess of motherhood, romance, love, beauty, music and dance.  Isis is the goddess of magic, a mother of Horus, a goddess of familial love and self-possession, a goddess of beauty, and a grieving widow.  They are not the same goddess!

As for the factual errors:

  • Hathor is married to Horus the Elder (Heru Wer) and not Heru-sa-Aset (Horus, son of Isis).  These are not the same god.
  • Oya’s main animal is the water buffalo
  • Nephthys is not a battered wife and Set is not evil
  • Isis is a moon goddess due to Roman influence.  The ancient Egyptian Aset is a solar and stellar goddess.  Aset’s association with the moon is due to Wesir and Heru being killed/harmed and reborn/healed.

Anyway, I would like to see a Goddess spell book have many goddesses from one pantheon and having them be in different categories because they have more than one aspect.

Like for a Learning/School section, you could have Seshat as the Goddess of education, math, writing, organization and libraries and Aset, the Lady of all knowledge, writing and research.

For a home and hearth section, you could have Bast as guardian of the home, Nephthys as Lady of the House, Hathor as a home goddess and Taweret as the home goddess.  Aset was also honored this way in the Late Period.

For prosperity and abundance, you could have Aset as Lady of Prosperity and Hethert (Hathor) as Lady of Abundance.

For beauty and self-love, you could have Aset, Hathor, Mut and Tefnut for various reasons.

For protection and strength (mental, physical, spiritual), you could have Aset, Possessor of Strength and Eye of Ra and various other Eyes of Ra like Mut, Bast, Sekhmet, Nit (Neith), and Tefnut.

For creativity and art, you could have Nit as the creatrix, Hathor as the Lady of the arts, music and dance and Aset as Lady of the Arts.

For change, sorrow and grief, Aset and Nephthys as the mourning women and Ladies of transformation.

For compassion, you could have Aset, Nephthys and Nut as the Ladies of Kindness.

Anyway, so here are my thoughts on this.

Aset, Auset, Isis, Aset-Serqet, Auset-Serqet, Isis-Selkis, Bast, Bastet, Bast-Mut, Djehuty, Thoth, Goddesses, Gods, Heru-sa-Aset, Horus son of Isis, Hethert, Hathor, Mut, Muth, Nebet Het, Nephthys, Nit, Net, Neith, Nut, Nuit, Ra, Sekhmet, Sekhmet-Mut, Seshat, Set, Seth, Sobek, Sebek, Tefnut, Tefenet, Wepwawet, Wesir, Asar, Ausar, Osiris, Work-in-Progress, Writing, Yinepu, Anubis

We Walk With You

My religion has many creation myths and all of them are true.  They tell us about creation.  Atum masturbated and Ptah spoke and everything was created. The Celestial Cow as Mut or Hethert or Mehet Weret or Nit gave birth to the sun god Ra and as She spoke everything was created.  Aset spoke the Word in the Beginning as did Nit and everything was created.

The other Gods, the air in the form of Shu, moisture in the form of Tefnut; Geb and Nut in the forms of earth and sky.  Ma’at and Life in the forms of Ma’at, Tefnut and Shu.    Ra, Shu, and the Eye Goddesses gave birth to light.  Wesir, Heru Wer, Set, Aset and Nebet Het were born and thus more was created by them.

Do you not see?  One became many.  Creation cannot exist without differentiation.  There are many Netjeru for a reason.  For each job to be performed, someone must be equipped to do it.  Some of Us have the same job, yet do it differently.  To borrow a phrase: Diversity is Our Power; Unity is Our Strength.

All of nature is touched by these Gods and Goddesses.  Sunbeams are Ra, Mut, Tefnut, Bast, Sekhmet, Aset and other solar Goddesses.  The air you breathe is Shu or Aset. The earth you stand on is Geb.

Isian News Lughnasadh 2019

I published a poem in a quarterly ezine called Isian News Isian News is the ezine of the Fellowship of Isis, an international, inter-religious goddess-spirituality organization.  So I download the PDF to see my poem and read other people’s works and I find…a section about me.
They had a list of my books and my book banner from my website on there!  And they had such kind words to say about my work!

“FOI Co-Founders Lawrence Durdin-Robertson was a scholar; his sister FOI Co-Founder Olivia Robertson was an artist. Both were authors. They encouraged members to continue their studies, via psychic questing, scholarly research, and activities within the arts. Chelsea’s work is a fine example of what they
envisioned our members of Aset Shemsu to accomplish. Many members have written saying how much they have enjoyed her contributions to Isian News, and many more have written to say how much they enjoy and value her books. They
are a wonderful resource.”
