Aset (Isis) Luminous and Birthday

There is a festival from the Roman period temple of Soknopaiou Nesos (a temple of Sobek) which lists a 19 day festival to Aset called Festival of the Birth of Aset Neferset, (with the Beautiful Throne) the Great Goddess  (in Greek this is Isis Nepherses).  The dates for this festival are: 26 of 3 Shomu to 15 of 4 Shomu.

Aset Luminous was on the 2nd of 4 Shomu.

Have a a blessed time!  Dua Aset!

Project Updates

So, I got permissions back for Mother of Magic: Ancient Hymns for Aset.  Now, all I need to do is go over the manuscript and send it off to the formatters.  This book has hymns from Philae, Dendera, Soknopaiou Nesos, Shanhur and some New Kingdom texts.   There is also an updated festival calendar and epithets list.

Books, Books and More Books!

Since my book is coming out soon, I thought I’d show you some of the books I used in my research. (Not all of them are here as some I got through the library and I had to return them).  I feel like Twilight Sparkle from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.  I’m getting all excited (adorkable) over books!

This collection has taken me over 15 years to build.  I just wanted to share this with others in order to share my joy.  I do not have a lot of money.  I buy books new (if it is within my budget), used or on sale.  (Here is an article I wrote about finding books online:  Books and Where to Find Them).  Continue reading “Books, Books and More Books!”
