Updated Review: Sekhmet Servant Oracle

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 independently published via print on demand. For only the cards, it is $38 plus shipping. There is a companion book which is sold separately for approximately $13. There is no box or small booklet. 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.

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

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

Summer Solstice: Departure of the Wandering Goddess

flaming_lioness_kindle cover

There are many Eyes of Ra celebrated at this time of year: Aset, Nebet Het, Nit, Sekhmet, Mut, Sekhmet-Mut, Bast, Bast-Mut, Hethert and Tefnut just to name a few.  An Eye of Ra is a title of many ancient Egyptian goddesses who protect the sun god, Ra with magic, weapons and flame.  They are the solar goddesses whose journey reflects the shortening and lengthening of days of the seasons of the year.  This is the time of Their departure.

So light candles and lamps.  Offer water, milk, beer or wine.  Offer food and drink to the Goddess as She goes to Nubia.

Let there be light, laughter, reverence, love, strength and peace throughout this time of year.  To all the F words: Faith, Family, Friendship, Forgiveness and Forever.

Have a blessed holiday.  Blessings of the Goddesses to you all!

I have books on many ancient Egyptian goddesses:

Oracle of Seshet

image13I got the Oracle of Seshet by Rev. Normandi Ellis and Amy Auset Rohn a few days ago.  Here is a post of my initial impressions.

This deck is gorgeous.  Each card has a photo of a hieroglyphic term, name or concept from ancient Egypt with the name of it written in English below the photo.  Amy Auset Rohn’s photos are gorgeous, clear and easy to see.

The cards themselves are firm, good quality and easy to shuffle despite the small size.  The cards are smaller than I personally would have liked.  I prefer larger cards, but that’s just my personal preference.  The cards are easy to read, see and use.  I did find a possible error though.  The card with the cartouche on it did not have a word written on the card (Unless that was done in purpose.  I don’t yet have the companion book to tell).

Nine of the cards are also advertisements for both Rev. Normandi Ellis and Amy Auset Rohn’s other work.  On the one hand, I understand why they did this (in case you don’t get the companion book, you still get to know about their work) and on the other hand, I wish they had added more cards to the deck instead.

Some deity names included in this deck are Seshet, Set, Wadjet, Djehuty, Amun, Heru, Nut, Ra, Khepera, Ptah, Het-Hor (Hathor), Anpu (Anubis), Asar (Osiris), Ast (Aset) and Nebhet (Nebet Het).  (Yes, Nebet Het’s name is spelled Nebhet on the card.  I wish it had been spelled Nebthet instead.)  I was very happy to see these many deities in the deck.  On the other hand, I wish there had been more gods included like Sekhmet or Mut or Bast or Tefnut and Shu.

Much of the deck consists of concepts (some god/concepts too) such as Heka, Sia, Ma’at, Sekhem, Akh, Akhet, Hu, Ka, Ib, Hotep and Sahu.

The deck does come with three keycards with the list of the cardnames and some keywords so you know their basic meaning.  I loved that this was included especially if you haven’t yet gotten the companion book (Hieroglyphic Words of Power by Normandi Ellis) yet.  I have not gotten the companion book yet so this is just based on the cards.

Overall, I would recommend this deck to those who love ancient Egyptian deities, concepts and oracle decks.

Return of the Wandering Eye Goddess

There are many Eyes of Ra celebrated at this time of year: Aset, Nebet Het, Nit, Sekhmet, Mut, Bast, Hethert and Tefnut just to name a few.  An Eye of Ra is a title of many ancient Egyptian goddesses who protect the sun god, Ra with magic, weapons and flame.  They are the solar goddesses whose journey reflects the shortening and lengthening of days of the seasons of the year.  This is the time of Their return.

So light candles and lamps.  Offer water, milk, beer or wine.  Offer food and drink to the Goddess as She returns to Her father Ra.  Her anger is appeased.  Her spirits are joyful.

Let there be light, laughter, reverence, love, strength and peace throughout this time of year.  To all the F words: Faith, Family, Friendship, Forgiveness and Forever.

Have a blessed holiday.  Blessings of the Goddesses to you all!
