I started the job.

*Lexikon der Ägyptischen Götter und Götterbezeichnungen

(I think it’s interesting that, in terms of aspecting, my Fathers both have that Champions of the Living/Champions of the Dead dichotomy. Even though I have never experienced Yinepu directly, and even though I don’t really subscribe to the Wepwawet and Yinepu aspecting part of KO, I think that’s something cool to note.)

It’s only August and I’ve already got the Mysteries on my mind.

Most of y’all know about the Mysteries of Wesir in IV Akhet; there is also a procession of Sokar that begins on the full moon (ending 18 days later shortly after the new crescent emerges), as well as a tenday feast for Ptah-Sokar, and the festival of Planting Onions for Sokar (which is the day after Sokar’s Procession ends, and on day nine of Ptah-Sokar’s feast).

Those of you who have been around know that I’ve previously observed Sokar-Wesir’s Mysteries with the community, simply to because doing things with the community is what I do. You also know that I’ve been thinking about what Ptah-Sokar’s Mysteries would look like.

I think that’s one of the Mysteries in and of itself: we’re more or less building our religious structures from scratch, after all. But I think this year will be my first year doing something Sokar-centric. I think instead of mulling it over and saying “maybe next year,” I will finally do something for Ptah-Sokar’s Mysteries. Hopefully I will learn something.

Ran out of Fireball (Cinnamon Whiskey) so today Wepwawet gets Marshmallow Smirnoff. Cool water for Ptah as well.

Thank you to everyone who is helping me out with bribery/offerings to Wepwawet!

I promised Wepwawet a nice big bottle of alcohol in exchange for a new job.
On Wednesday, I was told I would be offered a job pending a background check. Since then, I have been pouring a few sips out of sample bottles before going to work, and reverting them after, to remind Wepwawet I will keep the drinks coming if this job comes through.

If you have a shot to spare, pour one for Wepwawet, and ask Him to help me (Khenne) be hired by Friday.

Random Heru-Wer Google search brings me to… THIS. I have no idea what this is from, but it’s kind of hilarious.

Haha, I don’t completely understand it, but I like it. They have a few others too.

Here’s Sekhmet, Aset, Nebt-het, and Bast.

Frankly, I need both the Sekhmet and the Heru-Wer one.

These are by Megan (A’aqytsekhmet) from the House of Netjer; she’s also the illustrator of the Ancient Egyptian Daybook and paints devotional works for the Netjeru. I totally love her work. This Hethert, which features some nudity, is a favorite.

What if I celebrated a Procession of X by doing a benefit walk?

Procession of Bast, Lady of Joy, to Benefit NAMI for example.

seems like a lot of work

I’m just curious, is there anyone who actively maintains an open statue/shrine of their deity?

My last statue of S was opened or at least partially so. I maintained it the same as I do w/ my current one, which is not open. It doesn’t seem like it’s that much more work, imo.

sobeq/sobeqsenu does! (idk which blog she prefers be linked.)
