Title: Just for fun: Guess the God of the Year!
Post by: Sema'a on July 02, 2016, 09:28:47 am
Em hotep!

As we near the end of the year and the coming of a new one, it can be entertaining to make guesses and share hopes for which deity will be over the coming year. This past year we had Heru-sa-Aset over the year; the year before we had Aset.

I'm personally hoping (as I've been hoping since, oh, year 15?) for maybe a Bast or a Hethert year. I could also go for a Jackal year, but that's just my bias talking. ;) I have no earthly idea Who it is, though. We've had an awful lot of Aset children divined lately, but that has never been a correlation.

Anyone else fancy a guess?

Senebty,
Sobeq

I think I will guess Wesir.
We have had Heru-sa-Aset twice and Aset between those. I think Wesir will step up next.

Hummm...  Good question.
I'm going to guess Set.
Adding: After an interesting dream last night, Bast is now my official guess.

Set or maybe Wepwawet. Wesir would make sense though.

Oh Gods not Set... though Bawy year, while tough, was also a major year for me and ended up with a lot of good happening. At the least it has been sounding like this coming year won't be as difficult.

Title: Re: Just for fun: Guess the God of the Year!
Post by: Taqerisenu on July 02, 2016, 01:50:23 pm
Wesir does seem like a good guess! I think I could really go for a Khnum year, actually... I know there was one a while back, before I joined the House formally, but there could be another, right? ;) I just really want that peaceful creative energy. Mut or Bast might also be nice.
Title: Re: Just for fun: Guess the God of the Year!
Post by: Sarytsenuwi on July 02, 2016, 01:59:16 pm
Also leaning Wesir, or possibly Amun. A calmer, subtler year, but one still focused on kingship.

I really hope that the next year be more peaceful than the current.  :)

I'm seeing this uptick in Ra and Ra syncratized RPD and more Amun-ra so I'm guessing it's gonna be a Ra or a ".."-Ra year.
But a pesky feeling says Set

As I read through all the guesses, only one god stood out from the rest saying "Me, me, me!" and while I will always hope for a peaceful, calm year, I have a feeling, also stemming from personal issues right now, that it might end up being Set.  At least it wouldn't surprise me if it was Him.

By the way, it was never really talked about in the beginners classes, but how does the whole year thing work?  In terms of KO I mean anyway.

Em hotep,

Hemet(AUS) will announce the god of the year and the oracle.  It will make sense once you see t happen.
Much of our faith is exposure learning, and you'll gain much knowledge over the next few years!

Excellent.  Thank you Rayashi.  I look forward to it.  It seems like it was kind of touched on earlier last year, but I forgot.  :P  But again, thanks for letting me know.  I definitely look forward to learning more as time goes on.  :)

Post by: Sedjfaiemitui on July 02, 2016, 11:40:30 pm
My inclination is that it may be a Wesir or Amun-Re year. I'm expecting one of the more notoriously cryptic Netjeru to preside over a turbid lull (but not quite a lull) of a year, following this rough mixed bag Heru-sa-Aset's year has been. I wouldn't be surprised by a Set year following this one, though. :P

Post by: Sema'a on July 03, 2016, 12:29:05 am
Id be interested to hear from some of the folks who are voting for Wesir about why they chose Him. It seems like there's a trend toward Wesir

I second Wesir being our next God of the Year.

Regardless if He is not, as someone who interacts with Him a lot, He IS up to something. 
Title: Re: Just for fun: Guess the God of the Year!
Post by: Meresinepu on July 03, 2016, 01:36:33 am
Em hotep all,

Wow ..there does seem to be a trend going on here ..... for Wesir :)

I don't remember if we have had a year with Him?   I am biased and of course would love to see another Jackel year (but I'm not sure if I want it to be Yinepu as that would mean a lot of changes and some not what we may have expected).

I'd like to see someone like Serquet or Sekhmet have their year.   It will be interesting to see who it will belong to.  We won't know until we get to retreat or until Hemet has it posted on the boards.   I look forward to hearing the Oracle every year ..and some of them have been a doozy!

Counting the days until the Oracle is revealed.   

Senebty!

I love Mom to death, but after this year I'd really like not to have a Serqet year. (Unless I get to get away with all the stuff because I'm one of her kids. *glances at Mom* But knowing her and her expectations of me as her child, it might be extra pointy.) Mom's year would be similar to a Set year because she's all about survival and healing. It's not comfortable survival or healing, but it's necessary in that form.

Sekhmet could be a nice year; I think it would be very healing and very much about appropriate action. Possibly similar to Aset's year. A Sekhmet year would be nice I think.

Note: I don't necessarily think the God of the Year has to do with what happens in the year; more that it denotes the challenges and trials we will face in the year. Which is why while I'd love a year of Serqet, I wouldn't relish those challenges and trials.

I don't recall exactly how it started but it was in the late 1990s. At Aset Luminous/Webenut She will give the oracle to Hemet and other active Aset priests. (so the coming year's Oracle has been delivered, now we just wait to hear.) The Oracle is released to the public on the first full day of Retreat, Set's birthday. If you have not seen any of the Oracles before here is last year's (http://polytheist.com/kemet-today/2015/07/31/year-23-oracle-of-aset-spoken-at-aset-luminous-july-2015/). We've had years where one God is over the year, sometimes two, and one year when each season had a God over it.

I have Wesir or Set on my list.
May the Gods have mercy.

My first thought was Set, because I'm expecting mass upheaval due to all of the awful things happening everywhere lately. Trump for President is looking disturbingly likely, and we have Brexit and shootings all over the place. Oh, and the KKK apparently said they're making a comeback. I love my God, and I kind of want him to get God of the Year just because I like when he "wins" things, but I really don't want to deal with the consequences of that. May the Gods have mercy, indeed.

At the same time, I've heard a lot of people saying that XYZ NTR told them "Cheer up, next year will be better than this one!" or something along that line. I'm skeptical, due to the aforementioned widespread awfulness, but Wesir does seem pretty legit in that regard.

Perhaps a Wesir year, followed by a Set year? The other way around? Both this year somehow?

I think the opposite. I think that a year of Serqet would be good, without many challenges(maybe have more challenges for us, Her children! We know! ;) ) and a Sekhmet year would be hard. Because of their personality and energy. But... Who knows?!  ;D

I think I'm in the same place as Ra'awy on this one! Serqet is a challenger, much more so than my other Mother; my experience has been that She has high expectations of Her followers. I would expect her year to be anything but relaxing.

More specifically, due to Her role as remover of poisons, I would expect Her year to be one that focuses on the eradication of toxic influences on our lives. It's something I think about a lot, as for the past few years I have definitely been focused on removing toxic people and influences from my life. It's a necessary process, and one that has been hugely beneficial for me in the long term, but it's also painful and upsetting. I'd expect a Serqet year to contain that same duality: beneficial in the long-term, but painful and upsetting in the moment.

People who have different relationships with Her might experience such a year very differently, of course! But knowing the role She tends to play in my life, I would not be expecting Her year to be a serene one for me.

ETA: Actually, while I'm thinking about my Mothers... a Hethert-Nut year would be ideal for me right now, I think. I could use some of that big-picture cosmic energy!

So many "votes" for Wesir! :D And Set. Maybe Set would bring about good upheaval, not negative? I mean, not that upheaval' s generally pleasant, but it could bring about some positive changes in the world. :)

Forgive my ignorance, but can any Name be God of the year? If so, personally, I would love for it to be Djehuty. :)

Well, considering that a Set year would follow a Heru-Sa-Aset year, an Aset year and a Heru-Sa-Aset year my feeling would be more along the lines of "you had three years to get this sh1t in order, you didn't listen and now you better listen to me!"

Hi Ha'aut,

So, thinking this way, I agree with you and Ra'awy. Maybe a Serqet year, for people who are not accustomed with quickly and needed changes, could be a little uncomfortable, at least at first. =)

A year of growth with Wesir would be just fine with me.

I don't really have a guess, though.
