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).

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.

Future Projects

I have tons of projects I’m working on right now.  I’d like to narrow my focus so I can get a few of them done.

  • Solar Lioness: Ancient Hymns for Sekhmet.
  • Creation Mother: Ancient Hymns for Mut.  (As someone else is helping me with this via translation, this will take longer).
  • River, Star and Sky: Poems for the Egyptian Gods.
  • Lord of the Ways: An Anthology for Wepwawet. (Due date for submissions is January 7, 2020)
  • Lady of Magic: Honoring Aset Today.
  • Hymns of the Two Lands: Ancient Hymns for Egyptian Gods.
  • Mother of Nine: An Anthology for Oya.

 

On a separate note, I need help for figuring out the title of  Mut’s book:

  • Lady of the Double Crown
  • Creation Mother
  • Mother, Queen and Matriarch
  • Queen Mother
Aset, Auset, Isis, Books, Hymns, Mut, Muth, Oya, Publications, Ra, Sekhmet, Sekhmet-Mut, Self-Publishing, Indie Publishing, Indie Author, Translations

Forthcoming Books:

The next book I’ll hopefully finish is either:

  •  Lady of Magic: Honoring Aset Today
  • Solar Lioness: Ancient Hymns for Sekhmet
  •  Solar Flares and Sunbeams: An Anthology for Ra.
  • Creation Mother: Ancient Hymns for Mut (working title) is going to take longer as I’m hoping to be able to include  the Crossword Hymn to Mut in it.
  • Mother of Nine: An Anthology for Oya

Update and Nephthys Book

I have recovered from my eye surgery.  I now have three glasses for near, middle and far vision, respectively.  I’m very grateful to have what limited vision I do have.

On another note, before the surgery, I was able to publish Lady of the Temple in both PDF and Kindle formats.  Lulu ate my paperback copy so I had to get a new ISBN.  I hopefully can get the cover ISBN edited to the new one and then publish the paperback of this book.

Feast of Oya: February 2

Statue of  Oya.

Oya is an Orisha over the winds, fire, rain, storms, transformation, commerce, and the dead.  She is an Orisha of hurricanes, tornadoes, thunderstorms and lightning.  Her colors are multi-colors, purple or red.  Her sacred number is 9.  Her sacred animal is the water buffalo.  She can shapeshift into the buffalo and is a hunter.  She is a warrior woman armed with a sword and protects the sacred from impurities.  She is the goddess of transitions and death.  Her breath is the life-force of all things and the death of all things when it is taken away.  She is a fierce mother who is said to be fiercer than Her husband, Shango.  Oya loves eggplants, water, rum, red wine, beer, grapes, plums, and gin.

To the Ones Who Call Me

by JewelofAset

I am the Witch here.

I am the one who knows Her herbs.

I am the one who knows Her spells.

I am the one who knows Her heart.

What I want,  What I need

is known to Me.

What you want, What you need

is known to you.

I am the Orisha

granting desires and boons.

Giving blessings to those who honor Me.

A calabash filled with offerings.

Libations poured out onto the Earth,

which Olorun made.

I am the Wind.

I am the Thunder.

I am the Lightning.

I am the Storm.

I am Oya–She tore.

One who tears down trees in My path,

One who topples houses,

as towering trees fall.

I bring destruction for new growth to occur.

I bring swift cleansing and change.

Faster I, twirl and My power

enchants  and terrifies,

as things are uprooted in My path,

things that make one complacent or stagnant,

the ones who resist change fear Me.

Some loathe Me as they fear change

more than their own death.

more than their own demise.

And yet, I only come when you can’t quite see

what you are stuck in.

You can’t move on in a stagnant place,

or in a relationship that isn’t feeding you–

or worse, one where you are a victim.

Get out of your own way.

Accept My blessings and move.

Act.

Don’t sit idly by

and do nothing.

Take action in your life.

Do something–anything–

one thing–then two–then three

to help you change.

to help you move forward.

Then ask for My aid,

bring Me offerings in the calabash

or on your home shrine

and I will come.

Swiftly and without delay

I will come.

For I come to all those who call My name,

For I am Oya, of the Buffalo Horn.

For I am Oya,

the one who comes

when My children call.
