Happy Rhodophoria!

Rhodophoria/Rosalia Festival

Here is Aset’s shrine after the ritual.

This festival for Aset comes from the Ptolemaic period.  It is obviously Greek in origin, but was adapted to ancient Egyptian religion.   Aset is honored here as a Goddess of Beauty, the spring season and the Lady of the Rose.

Roses were the flowers which were left on graves.  Aset is honored here as the Lady of Beauty, Queen of the Dead and the Mourner of Wesir.

Here is the image of the shrine after the offerings were mostly cleared.

Youtube Pagan Challenge Videos

So the Youtube Pagan Challenge is a meme of sorts where a question is asked each week out of the year and people respond via a video on Youtube.  (Is there a blog one like this?)

Here are two of them I absolutely loved. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Here is Soli from Love Defies Reality:

Musings on Cycles and Creation

Offerings are given so that the Gods’ Kau (vital essence) are fed and ours are fed when we partake of the physical offering after ritual. Eating, breathing, laughing, doing what we enjoy, sex, and creativity, beauty feed our Kau.

Replenishing creation with ritual and food is a sacred act. It is reciprocal creation with the Gods and people. It is an exchange of energy and the axiom “we give so You may give” applies here.

The world is made of cycles. Duality and complimentary opposites working together are one of the main themes in Egyptian myth. And so are cycles.

And cycles are important because anything that stagnates, dies. The solar cycle, the lunar cycle, the Nile cycle, the stellar cycle, the daily cycle and nightly cycle all renew creation and the Gods and humans and the dead.

All renewal brings back the emerging power of the First Time–all magic, all possibility, all power and all potential are in this moment. And this is what ritual does for us and what cleansing the ka does for us.

It brings us back to this moment where anything is possible. Our True Selves emerge here True-of-Voice. Our Star-Souls are held here and we behold creation with the Gods.

The sun emerges from the waters. Light penetrates the darkness. Daybreak fills creation with life.

Aset Shrine Pictures

Here are some shrine pictures of Aset’s shrine during the Awakening of Aset by the Majesty of Ra Festival in January (I think it is the 16 of Mechir on the Ancient Egyptian calendar). Some friends and I got together and honored Her. I think this was in 2011 though I’m not sure.

Anyway, here are the pictures.
