On my calendar, today begins the festival The Birthday of Aset, with the Beautiful Throne, Thrice Great Goddess. This is a 19 day festival, lasting from June 26-July 14. The Neferset/Nepherses epithet is associated with oracles, divination and dreaming. Have a blessed holiday!
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.
I have published an anthology for Frigga which can be found here: Queen of the Hearth: An Anthology for Frigga
I highly recommend Rev. Dr. Tamara L. Siuda’s book, The Ancient Egyptian Prayerbook. This book has many prayers, invocations and hymns for specific Kemetic deities (including Set!), prayers for holidays, children and certain situations. This book also has a daily ritual called the Senut which is the main daily rite for Kemetic Orthodox House of Netjer. Siuda also has another book about Kemetic Holidays which is also excellent, The Ancient Egyptian Daybook. (Her books are also available through Amazon).
Richard Reidy’s book is very dense and extremely traditional. Many Kemetics use his daily ritual from this book in their daily practice. A link to his book is here: Eternal Egypt. His companion book to this one is here: Everlasting Egypt.
Kerry Wisner is the Head Priest of the Akhet Hethert (Hathor) temple. He has three books out about the Kemetic faith: Eye of the Sun (for beginners); Song of Hathor (intermediates); and Pillar of Ra (about festivals). These are great books to add to your library especially if you love Hathor.
Are there any other books you’d recommend?
The Procession of Nebet Het/Nephthys starts today! The Sister of Set, the Mourner of Wesir, the Sister of Aset, Lady of the Temple, Lady of the Underworld, Lady of the Tomb, Sun Goddess, Who Dispels Darkness, Kind and Full of Love.
She is Merkhetes (She Whose Flame is Painful) and Kherseket (She Who Wipes Away Tears). She is both a mourning and protection goddess. May Her names be known and may Her blessings flow.

Today is the Feast and Procession of Wepwawet. He is also the Chronokrater (Day Deity) of this day. And this is His year according to the Kemetic Orthodox House of Netjer Oracle of the Year. Today is all about Wepwawet!

It’s the Procession of Aset/Isis today! Honor to Aset, the Great, Mother of God, Mistress of Magic, Sovereign, Queen of the Gods and Goddesses, Sun Goddess, Fiercely Bright One, Eye of Ra, Lady of the West; Lady of Heaven, Earth and the Underworld.

Day: 4th Shomu, Day 2
This festival commemorates Aset’s nightly search by torchlight for Her husband Wesir. In modern times, paper boats are made (with written petitions on them) and they are placed in water with a tealight on top.
Aset is a goddess of sovereignty, kingship, magic of all kinds, life-power, personal power and authority, writing, words, gaining knowledge, honoring one’s ancestors, ancestral lineage and traditions, dreams, family relationships, self-love, alignment of the souls and healing. She is also a goddess of Heaven, starlight, the night sky and the star Sopdet (Sirius).
For offering ideas, go here: Offerings of Aset.
I channeled this message from Aset about this festival.

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.
