Updates on Projects

At the Formatters

Holy Mother, Healer and Queen:  Papers on Goddesses, Orisha and Saints.   This is a compilation of academic essays on Oya,  Yemoja (Yemaya), Frigga, Skadi, Kali and Mary.  And there is one essay on Qur’anic Talismanry and Women’s Healing.

Almost Done

The Ancient Egyptian Poetry Book is almost complete.  I have over 300 pages of poetry to Aset, Aset and Nebet Het, Nebet Het, Sobek, Set, Wesir, Wepwawet, Yinepu, Bast, Ra, and Nut.  I am still adding more  poetry.   The tentative  title is Sun, Star and Desert Sand.

Waiting on Permissions/Other People

I  have sent in the permissions for Lady of the Sky: Ancient Hymns for Aset from the Temple of Dendera.  We’ll see what they say.  I’m still waiting.

I have been compiling all the material for this book She Who Speaks Through Silence:  An Anthology of Nebet Het (Nephthys).  I am still waiting on some submissions.  Here are  the submission guidelines: Nebet Het Submission Guidelines

A Devotional for Ra and His Daughters:  Solar Flares and Sunbeams.  Here are the submission guidelines:  Ra and His Family Devotional

Future Projects

A third hymnal and an anthology for Aset/Isis.  I don’t have a working title yet.

Maybe a  hymnal or devotional for  Sekhmet/Sekhmet-Mut.  I have to check on some permissions.  The tentative title is Lioness Goddess, Lioness Queen: An Anthology/Hymnal for Sekhmet.

Update

I have sent the Wepwawet book, Lord of Strength and Power to the formatters!  I decided to take the Anubis section  out since  I wanted  this to be just about Wepwawet.  I can send  the Anubis material to  Bibliotheca Alexandrina and see  if  they need  it.

I have also sent another poetry book to the formatters.  This is a companion  to Divine Words, Divine Praise.  It  has poems  to Athena, Athena and  Zeus, Athena and  Poseidon, Hestia, Hela, Hekate, Frigga, Hera and Zeus, and many Orisha (Oya, Yemaya, Oshun, Osanyin, Shango, Obatala, and Nana Buruku).  I’m calling it  Holy Words, Holy Praise.  I’m hoping to come up  with a better title.  It sounds pretentious to me.

Hail the Summer Sun!

A Blessed Summer Solstice to everyone! I’m honoring Aset as the Solar Eye for this festival along with Sekhmet-Mut for the Egyptian pantheon. Some friends are coming over to celebrate. We’ll offer our feast (also known as dinner) to Them and other offerings such as wines, tea, pastries, cookies and candles lit upon all the shrines so they blaze as fiercely bright as the summer sky.

Since this is also Midsummer Festival for the Northern Gods of Scandinavia and other Germanic Lands, I’ll also be honoring Frigga and other Northern Gods in my home. I’ll offer wines and tea and the others can bring their offerings for Them as well.

Hail the Gods and Goddesses of Egypt!

Hail the Gods and Goddesses of the Northern Lands.

May offerings be laid upon the shrines.
May prayers be spoken and heard.
May songs be sung in praise.
May blessings flow.
May the light shine brightly, fiercely glowing in our eyes and hearts.

I’m reminded that the only time our eyes glow is when we are smiling.

May Day or Walpurgisnacht

May Day was today so I gave my Northern Gods some offerings. Today I gave a glass of Riesling Wine, water and some bread to Frigga, red wine to Odin and Riesling Wine to Freyja. I gave Idunna a glass of red wine and Bragi a glass of Chardonnay. I gave Hela some red wine as well.

And by “glass” here I mean former candle holders that I re-purposed for small shot glasses. I also moved the Odin shrine (statue, offering and necklace) to Frigga’s shrine in the kitchen. I felt compelled to do that; I’m not sure if that was due to the holiday or for some other reason. So we’ll see if I move Him back to where He was before.

Hail the ancestors! Hail the Gods and Goddesses!

Blessed May Day everyone!

Link: A Southern Girl’s Guide to Hospitality

This is a great article guiding the beginner on how to interact with the Holy Powers. I highly recommend it! Just a note: she uses the word “Kindred” for “Gods, Goddesses, Spirits, Ancestors, etc”.

Give to the Mothers

Today is the Day of the Mothers
Living and Dead
Today honor the Mothers
The Disir of your clan
The Matronae of your Hall
Hail, Hail the Mothers
On this day honor your Mother
with gifts of flowers and wine
or favorite token of love
Something she needs
Something she wants
give to your Mother
And honor her Mother and those that have gone before
with wine or beer, milk or honey
give to the Ancestral Dead
give to the Mothers
give to your Mother
give to the Goddesses
for nothing can manifest without their blessing
