(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.
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.
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.
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.
Frankly, I need both the Sekhmet and the Heru-Wer one.
What if I celebrated a Procession of X by doing a benefit walk?
Procession of Bast, Lady of Joy, to Benefit NAMI for example.
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.
