Frigga and 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.

Good Beginner Books for Kemetics

The Ancient Egyptian Prayerbook PaperbackI 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).

 

Eternal Egypt: Ancient Rituals for the Modern WorldRichard 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.

 

 

 

Eye of the Sun - The Sacred Legacy of Ancient 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?

Procession of Nephthys/Nebet Het

There is a Procession of Nebet Het/Nephthys in a larger festival of a Procession of Khnum-Ra from the Temple of Esna on Nov. 1-6 (on my calendar).

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.
