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.
