Today is the Birth of Aset Festival on the Kemetic Orthodox Festival Calendar.  Aset is the Mistress of Magic, the Queen of Heaven, the Mother of God and the Fiercely Bright One.

Here is a wonderful post by Sarduriur about this festival here: Aset’s Birth: Day of Readying Terror. 

Light candles for Her.  Give offerings to Her.  Sing Her praises.  Recite Her prayers and hymns.

Hail Lady Aset, Mistress of Magic.  Dua Aset!

Festival of Aset

This Festival of Aset lasts from the 20 to the 23rd of the month. This is a cleansing festival where the shrine was cleaned, the statue was bathed and offerings were given to the Goddess. Pausanias mentions this festival in Pausanias. Description of Greece: Books 1-2 and 8-10. translated by W. H. S. Jones. (Loeb Classical Library, 1918; Harvard University Press, reprint.

Clean your shrine today and offer to the Goddess. Since it is the Fall Equinox, maybe offer Her fruits or vegetables or foods which remind you of the Harvest or Fall.

Aset, Auset, Isis, Oracles, Poems, Poetry,

Welcome to the Home of the Fiercely Bright One

Hello.
Welcome to my blog.  This is my spiritual blog dedicated to my Spiritual Mother Aset (Greek Isis).  One of Her titles is “Fiercely Bright One”.*  I will discuss my devotional practices and ongoing research about the Goddess Aset and a few other Kemetic (Ancient Egyptian) deities.  I will also talk about some other Gods and Goddesses I follow from other pantheons.

May Aset’s Blessings be yours.

Home of the Fiercely Bright One
By JewelofAset

This is the home of the Fiercely Bright One

The Goddess who will not be denied

I will burn as brightly as the Sun in the Sky

My rays will touch all who come here

My rays will warm their hearts

and their own light will shine

their own Kau will be fed

As offerings do

Do not worry, Child.

I am with you.

*Ka (pl. Kau) is the life force within the Kemetic concept of the soul.  Within Kemetic religion, both Gods and humans have kau.  When offerings are given, both the kau of gods and people are nourished and renewed.
