Happy Moomas!

Happy Establishment of the Celestial Cow! (also affectionately called, Moomas since it is close to Christmas). Rev. Tamara Siuda has a great blog post about this festival here: Winter Holidays: This One Goes up to Eleven.

The Celestial Cow Goddess for this festival is normally Hethert-Nut, Hethert, Nut or Mehet Weret. Since Aset can also be a Celestial Cow Goddess, as Aset-Nut or Aset-Mehet Weret, I’m going to celebrate Aset as the Celestial Cow for this festival.

I’m going to offer water and candles for Her to represent the starry heavens and the waters of creation.

Hail Aset-Nut
Hail Aset-Mehet Weret
Hail Aset, the Heavenly Cow
Hail, Aset, Blessed Lady
Please be with us tonight.

Rest in Peace Lady Olivia Durdin-Robertson

Lady Olivia Durdin-Robertson has passed away. She was the founder of the International, mutli-religious, Goddess-centered organization, the Fellowship of Isis. I always admired her for her dedication and her years of work for the Gods and Goddesses. She was a mystic, a Priestess and a great liturgist. I had hoped to meet her in person one day, but now that won’t be possible. She inspired me many years ago to follow Aset. May she rest peacefully on the other side enfolded in the wings of the Goddess Aset-Isis.

Here is her biography: Biography of Lady Olivia Durdin-Robertson

And here is a tribute: Tribute to Lady Olivia Durdin-Robertson

PBP 2013: L is for Links

I have not updated here in awhile. I have been sick or not feeling well. Or I have had lack of energy. Anyway, here is a links post for my latest Pagan Blog Project post.

I’m still working on re-gaining my energy levels.

Anyway, here are some links.

Here is a post about statues in Aset/Isis worship by Priestess and Author Isidora Forrest. I don’t like the term idolatry itself because of its pejorative meaning, but it is a good post. Idolatry, Yes!

PBP2013: C is for Calendar

I’m working on calendars. I’m working on one for the Devotional Book and Hymnal Books I’m writing for Aset. There are festival days to Aset like “Awakening of Aset by the Majesty of Ra” which celebrates Her power as a sun goddess and there is one called “Celebration of Aset Giving Birth to Heru-sa-Aset” which is an 18 day festival (for an 18 Day festival I wish there was more in the ancient sources of what to do for it). There is the “Conception of Heru-sa-Aset by Aset and Wesir”. There’s Aset’s Festival of Lights: Aset Luminous (Procession of Aset, the Brilliant, Mother of God). Then there are a few more I just found called “Aset, the Goddess” and “Aset, the Great, Mother of God, Mistress of Stars”.

I’m glad we have these festival names and dates, but for the majority of them, we have no idea of what to do. How many “Feast of Aset” or “Festival of Aset” have you seen? How do you celebrate them? How do we honor the Goddess? What do we do for Her New Moon Festival (Wesir as Moon God dies and She mourns Him is what I’m thinking here, but all I have is the name and the fact that an ox was offered).

I’m just doing as much research as I possibly can and hopefully make something Aset is proud of.

Speaking of research on calendars, Tamara Siuda, spiritual leader of the House of Netjer, author and Egyptologist is going to write a book on her own research on the Ancient Egyptian calendars. Here is the blogpost about the project Ancient Egyptian Daybook Project.
