Nephthys Devotional Update

I wanted to let everyone  know that I’m  still working on  the Nephthys devotional, She Who Speaks Through Silence: A Devotional Anthology of Nebet Het (Nephthys).  I am waiting on some submissions and Tamara Siuda’s  The Ancient  Egyptian Daybook to be published since  I  wanted to include as many festivals to Her in the book as possible (with credit and citations, of course!).

So far the sections I have are:

Ancient Hymns and Prayers

Essays

Ritual and  Magic (I only have  three things here.)

My Poetry to Nebet Het (over 40 poems)

My Poetry to Aset and Nebet  Het (about 30 poems)

Modern Hymns, Prayers and Adorations

Fiction

And an  Epilogue of Epithet and Syncretization Lists

Also References and a Glossary

Contributor Biographies

Books, Books and More Books!

Since my book is coming out soon, I thought I’d show you some of the books I used in my research. (Not all of them are here as some I got through the library and I had to return them).  I feel like Twilight Sparkle from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.  I’m getting all excited (adorkable) over books!

This collection has taken me over 15 years to build.  I just wanted to share this with others in order to share my joy.  I do not have a lot of money.  I buy books new (if it is within my budget), used or on sale.  (Here is an article I wrote about finding books online:  Books and Where to Find Them).  Continue reading “Books, Books and More Books!”

Link: Distant Goddess and Celestial Cow

Tamara Siuda, author, Egyptologist and founder of Kemetic Orthodoxy, wrote a post about the Myth of the Distant Goddess for the Winter Solstice and the Establishment of the Celestial Cow for the festival of the same name on Dec 25.

Here is her great post: And there were stars: How a time out turned into the nighttime sky

Link: Winter Holidays: This One Goes Up to Eleven

Tamara Siuda, the founder of Kemetic Orthodoxy, author and Egyptologist wrote a blog entry about the Establishment of the Celestial Cow holiday celebrated on December 25.

Here is the blog entry: Winter holidays: This one goes up to eleven.

Since Aset is also the Celestial Cow (Aset-Mehet Weret), you could also incorporate Her into this holiday. Or as the syncretic goddess Aset-Nut.
