Sekhmet Servant Oracle Cards

I got the Sekhmet Servant Oracle Cards by Megan Zane. This deck is wonderful! There are 101 cards in this deck. The images on the cards are watercolor paintings done by Megan Zane with the name of the deities below each image. The card stock is good and stable, but the cards themselves are on the smaller side. They fit in my hand.

The art on this deck is gorgeous! Each image represents an aspect or form of the deity either in traditionally anthropomorphic form, anthropomorphic form with the animal head or in their animal form. Just a note for those who may be confused: Set is represented in this deck with the head of a falcon and the Red Crown. This is historically attested in the Dakhla Oasis during the Roman period in Egypt.

For the Shu card, He is depicted as a lion (and Tefnut’s card has Her as a lioness, which I thought was adorable for the Twins). Also, Anhur (Onuris) is depicted as a man with the feather crown. Anhur is a praise name for Shu. So Shu is technically in this deck twice. Sekhmet also has two cards in this deck (this is Sekhmet’s Servant Oracle, afterall).

Also, Yinepu (Anubis) and Wepwawet are both depicted here in their anthropomorphic form with the jackal head; while Yinepu is black, Wepwawet’s color is dark brown. Wepwawet can be shown in this form with a black jackal head too. I think that having them have different colors helps to tell them apart. Wepwawet is more often depicted as a standing jackal.

For Heru Wer (Horus the Elder) and Heru-sa-Aset (Horus, son of Isis): Heru Wer is in his falcon headed anthropomorphic form with the White Crown and Heru-sa-Aset is depicted in His child form.

Other deities in this deck are ones that are more common (Aset, Nebet Het, Nut, Hethert, Sekhmet, Bast, Yinepu, Geb, Wesir, Serqet, etc) and ones not as common in Egyptian themed Oracle Decks (Sobek, Seshat, Wadjet, Nekhbet, Mut, Sekhmet-Mut, Bast-Mut, Wenut, Taweret, Nehmetawai, Montu, Ptah, Ra, Raet, Nit (Neith), Pakhet, Repyt, Shu, Tefnut, Wepwawet, Menhit, Iusaas, Khnum, Anukis). There are groups of deities or spirits included too (7 Hetherts, 4 sons of Heru, etc).

What I loved: the cards and art are amazing! There are so many gods and goddesses in this deck! I am so happy that Wepwawet, Mut, Bast-Mut and Sekhmet-Mut finally get a spot in an Oracle Deck!

Things to Consider: This deck is in the higher price range for Oracle Decks. For only the cards, it is $38 plus shipping. There is no box or small booklet. There is a companion book which is sold separately for approximately $13. I put my deck in a tarot bag.

Overall: I would definitely recommend this deck to someone who honors ancient Egyptian Gods (especially the more obscure ones)! I would recommend this for diviners as well with a caveat that you may want to know or read about these gods before doing a reading with this deck.

This review was just for the cards as I don’t yet have the companion booklet.

Frigga, Goddesses

Honor Frigga on Disablot

Disablot

February 2

The Hearth Goddess Frigga is honored here along with the Disir and other female Holy Powers.  Within Urglaawe, the Hearth (place where Frigga’s fire is kept) is cleaned and Frigga is honored as a goddess of creative power as well as a defender of the home and hearth.[1]  In these modern times, the hearth can be in the fireplace, kitchen or just a candle on a shrine.

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.

Poem: Dispel Darkness

standing goddess NephthysDispel Darkness

by TahekerutAset

It’s My birthday

My day to shine

To be in the limelight

I am the Hidden Goddess

I am the one unseen

Yet I am always present

At every shrine

At every ceremony

At every temple space

For I am the Lady of the Temple

I guard the threshold between the holy and profane

I guard the shrine from impurity and all unholy things

I am the guardian

I am the guide

through shadow and darkness

I shine when darkness reigns

I dispel darkness with My light

The Sun’s power is Mine

since I am the Daughter of Ra

and the Eye of Ra

The Nile’s power is Mine

since I am the Daughter of Nut and Geb

The Storm’s power is Mine

since I am the Sister of Set

since I am the Mourner of Wesir with Aset

since the Nile’s flood is caused by rain

by the Two Sisters, who mourn Him

I am the Goddess

Who shines so bright

I dispel darkness

With My light

Poem: No Darkness Can Withstand My Power

Aset with throne headdress
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

A Poem

Sekhmet is here

With Her arrows

She is with the doctors and nurses

She is with the experts trying to find a vaccine

This is Her domain

Aset and Nebet Het will be with those who grieve

as They are the Two Mourners of Wesir

They will help you mourn for your dead

Listen,

This is not to punish you

Humanity is not a fallen race

We are with you now

In this trying time

Call out to Us

And We will do Our best to help you
