Two Book Projects: An Update

So I have two projects that I am working on intensively at the moment.  One of them is Mother of Magic: Ancient Hymns for Aset.  This book has hymns from Philae, Dendera, Soknopaiou Nesos, Shanhur and some New Kingdom texts.   There is also an updated festival calendar and epithets list.  I’m waiting on the cover artist and  the final formatted version of  the books.

The other project is Flaming Lioness: Ancient Hymns for Egyptian Goddesses.  This is a collection of ancient hymns to different Eye of Ra Goddesses.  So far I have hymns to: Aset/Isis, Nebet Het/Nephthys, Hethert/Hathor, Tefnut, Sekhmet, Mut, Menhyt, Nit/Neith and Seshat.  I’m still collecting other material and waiting on some permissions.

Mut-Bast or Bast-Mut: Poem

Mut-Bast: Goddess of Women

by JewelofAset

I empower all women

For I am a Goddess

All Goddesses are the Goddess of Women

As We are Women too

Yet, as Hethert is the Goddess of Motherhood

And Procreation

I am not

I am the Goddess of Women

As Mothers, as Wives

But I am not The Mother

I am not The Wife

That is for Hethert

Not Me

Solar Flares and Sunbeams: An Anthology for Ra and His Family

by Chelsea Luellon Bolton

Ra (Re) is the ancient Egyptian God of the Sun.  He is the creator of the world, Gods and Humankind.  He is both the warmth of the sun and its fiery, scorching rays.  He is the one who travels through the sky during the day and through the Underworld at night, culminating in His defeat of the Evil Serpent.   He merges with Wesir (Osiris), the King of the Underworld and renews the afterlife and creation.

He has many forms and syncretisms with other gods.  He has many daughters who bear the title “Eye of Ra” which means they are His guardians and protectors who harness the fierce power of sun to dispose of enemies and evil forces.

Ra as the creator of the world

Ra as the Creator of Humankind
