She marries Him

And Their love is eternal

They bring change and sorrow

They bring transformation

The change He brings is Swift, Brutal

Unyielding

You can’t turn away

From the lies you tell yourself

Or the hidden truths you wish to keep locked away

You cannot hide from your desires

With a slew of excuses Continue reading

Ra and His Family Devotional

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

Dua Set and Walk Forth in Strength

by Jeff Dahl

by Jeff Dahl

Today is Set’s Birthday on the Kemetic Orthodox Calendar.

I have lit His candle and said his prayer as I did for Wesir and Heru Wer the two days prior.

Saryt, a talented musician, singer, and sculptor has written and sang two songs dedicated to Set.  I would like to share them with you on His birthday.

Dua Set!  Happy Birthday to the Red Lord!

Strongest of the Gods Journal

For those who don’t know, “Red Week” was a week long celebration of the ancient Egyptian God Set, Lord of storms, change and the desert. He is the strongest of Gods to slay Apep every day so that dawn may come. (He does this in tandem with Aset, the Strongest of Goddesses).

Anyway, here is a journal containing hymns, stories and other writings about the Red Lord. This was put together by the Kemetic Orthodox House of Netjer Temple.
