Title: Little Known Deities...
Post by: Seta on December 01, 2016, 08:35:29 pm
Anyone speak with deities who are not spoken about much here (in Kemetic Orthodoxy) or who are considered "not so popular"?
Title: Re: Little Known Deities...
Post by: Baniheru on December 01, 2016, 08:39:47 pm
I suppose I do, since Min is considered one of those "odd gods" and he's a beloved of mine!

Seshat is my first (and originally only) Beloved and She's not "popular."

My "Great Father" Banebdjedet (Amun-Re as) and my Beloved Herishef (Wesir as) certainly qualify.

As for those not in my lineup, I pay worship to Bes (Who is gradually getting more popular within the House, I gather!), Duamutef, and a number of the "Egyptianized" Levantine deities. The latter group being attached to my "First Father" Set and my Beloved Herishef, and indirectly I am attached to Them via my Jewish / Eastern Mediterranean ethnicity and heritage ("The Haddu," Rešep and Hûrûn, chiefly. Not so much Qōdeš, ‘Anat, and the Astaret-Goddesses, except in passing where They concern those male Divinities). I engage with Min, too, but chiefly through my "Great Father."

There have been / are a few others, too, but my worship of those other Divinities hasn't been consistent and "elaborate" enough that I think it counts. :P

I recently became a beloved of Wenut. She is the most Odd god of my line-up. But she is Bast-as-Wenut. Still Wenut though.
Title: Re: Little Known Deities...
Post by: Ushedimuti on December 01, 2016, 09:32:11 pm
My Mother, Mafdet, probably qualifies. She doesn't seem to have many children or Beloveds, and there's not a ton of information out there on Her.
Title: Re: Little Known Deities...
Post by: TabauAmunet on December 01, 2016, 09:37:10 pm
Most of my lineup is "Odd Gods" that aren't as well known, and I work with a few other less common Names as well.

My Mother is Mut in Her Form of/as Amunet (Amunet for short), and of my Beloveds there's Seshat, Amun-Min, and Nefertem. I also speak with Kek/Keket.

There's more Sobek-Ra kids than Sobek kids these days, and I'm the only one remaining as an active child for both my parents (Sobek and Taweret).

Out of my beloveds, I'd say Khnum and Khepera are the lesser known ones. But Khepera seems to qualify most as an odd god, just because he isn't seen or interacted with so often.

Well, while both my Mother Tefnut and my Beloved Uncle Shu definitely qualify as Odd Gods (I'm the only child of Tefnut so far, and there's one child of Shu, and a handful of people have either One as Beloved), They might be better known, or at least better known of, than some other Odd Gods.

I also work with the Ogdoad (especially Nun/Nunet and Kek/Keket), and very recently Mehet-weret and Menhyt-Nebtuu have become important to me.

I'd tentatively posit that my first-of-three Beloveds, Ptah, is lesser-known. Around the House I've seen Him syncretized as Ptah-Sokar-Wesir, but rarely does He seem to show up as "just" Ptah.

And He's really such a wonderful God--very quiet, but steady, but sure, but encouraging--and I'm so thankful to be His beloved. :)

Senebty!

For a deity that was very popular in old Kemet, Ptah (or Ptah-Sokar-Wesir as I have him) isn't so known now.  I too find Him very steady and calming.  Dua Ptah!

I'm very fond of Meretseger (who Hemet just confirmed is a really big Netjeri rather than a Name), and though she is not a part of my lineup, I do honour Her. Her harshness and implacability attracts me for some reason.

I am the only person so far to have been divined with Nehebkau in my RPD lineup, and I've never met anyone else who has a relationship with Him.

That's not too surprising to me, since He is a very quiet and subtle Name, and can be hard to get to know. But He's also such a... relevant god; no other god that I know of is so intimately associated with the concept of the Ka and one's life path and purpose. I hope that in the coming years He attracts more devotees.

The Ra in my Beloved line-up expresses Himself to me as Ra-Atum and Ra-Wesir. He's very much Ra in the Duat--the ancient and liminal, between states of life and death/day and night. He's Ra mid-transformation, neither one thing, nor another, but also both.

In terms of Odd Gods not in my line-up, I have a pretty strongly-established relationship with Montu and Raettawy. I've also interacted with Hethert-as-Bat, in the past. More recently, I've been interacting with Wadj-wer, and, to a lesser extent, Hapy, both of whom I've been nudged toward by Bast.

Post by: Rayashi on December 02, 2016, 04:54:28 pm
Both Sokar-Wesir and Min are my beloveds, so I'm very close with the both of them.
As for non-line up Netjeru, I recently ha Meretseger approach me with a request, so I believe this is the beginning of a relationship.

I recently added Nehmet-Awai to my lineup; Hethert-Nut-as-Nehmet-Awai to be specific. She comes through very celestial for me. ^-^ This specific form, sometimes of Nit/Seshat/Hethert (regular flavor), is pretty rare ancient and modern. She only shows up in ancient Kemet in one location and I only know of one other person that occasionally worships Her.

Sometimes my Heru-wer shows up in weird ways; Heru-Shu and Heru-Min, but He's still my Heru. :3

My Mom, Serqet, usually doesn't show up as 100% scorpion/woman for me; She likes being a snake or a lion more often when it comes to U/us talking. Which is partially why I have some unusual, but traditionally based images of Her in my shrine.

I'm not huge Odd Gods Squad (especially now I have all those siblings!) but I also wander into some worship of others; Min, Sokar, Qebhwt, and Sobek.

While not my most major relationships, I do regularly honor Mehet-Weret & Kebechet. I've also worked with Maahes in the past. And I've developed an interest in Nehebkau, but I've yet to find the time to devote to it.

Post by: Itenumuti on December 06, 2016, 08:05:07 pm
Almost all of my gods, barring Sekhmet and Wepwawet, can probably be considered odd gods. Nebt-het is fairly well-known but doesn't have a ton of children; Hethert-Nut is gaining popularity but still doesn't have many children, either. (*waves to Ha'aut*) Ma'ahes is lesser-known.

I also work with Sepa semi-regularly, and Wadjet, and Anhur, and Ptah (Whom I completely adore, and those who've said He's calm and steady and wonderful are absolutely right). Ptah is sort of the unofficial household god, since my partner and I are both writers and makers.

I've touched on Nehebkau briefly before - I have an enormous fondness for all the snake deities - and Renenutet and Wosret/Wesret. I also have a small relationship with Heh, Khepera, and Twtw.

Honestly, if it's a little-known god, I'm probably all excited about learning more and saying hi. >_>

Post by: Zef on December 07, 2016, 02:39:16 pm
Looking at the members directory, I can only see one other person with Sokar (as opposed to Sokar-Wesir, Ptah-Sokar-Wesir, ect) in their lineup. I also have Sobek, though not sure if He counts. I also want to start getting to know Bes.

Sokar is very, uh, big. I don't know how to describe Him well. Very strange. Kind of scary, but not in a way that's His fault. Scary because I can't really comprehend Him that easily.

I do not speak to any little known deity, yet!  ::)

I just wanted to comment to show you a list of the Egyptian Deities and most of the little known deities are there hehe
Of course, it may not be all of the deities but I'm trying.
It's a research I'm doing on each Deity, it may take a lot of time, because they're a lot! I will write about each one of them. From A to Z, so I just started with Aker, which, from the little information I found is a little known deity.

If anybody wants to help me with this research I will be more than happy!! If not, but you will see my research, I will be very happy, as well..

My blog is on my signature but if you want already the List of Egyptian Deities, this is the link: Link (https://theoccultstudies.wordpress.com/2016/12/07/egyptian-deities/)

Gosh, I didn't even think of Hethert-Nut. She's so overwhelmingly HUGE the way I experience Her that it didn't occur to me that, well, yes, She definitely is one of the lesser known Hethert syncretisms.

I also realized that I forgot to mention Iah (who is to the moon disc what Aten is to the sun disc... only without the historical political baggage, I suppose). For some reason I've never been able to connect with any of the other moon gods, but I say hello to Iah any time I see him in the sky.

I am a son of Shu, apparently also one of the first divined children of him, though I believe at one point, there was someone else who also had His name as a Parent. I haven't been able to get in contact with them.

While he has a huge part in the mythology, I haven't seen very many people who work with him, and have talked with less.

Lesser known deities to me are so appealing and beautiful. They hold so much mystery and yet are right in front of us all the time, at least that's how I feel....
And ever since I dyed my hair green I've been getting some serious Wadjet vibes and I'm loving any interaction with Her.
Heqat and Sobek are also close to my heart.

She is a usually lioness headed goddess who is linked to the ritual girdle. I enjoyed learning about her and have a soft spot in my heart for her.

For me as far as lesser known deities go, I've only communicated with a couple; Bes and Amunet.  But it also seems to be that my father Heru-sa-Aset, while He has a rather large part in Kemetic theology, He doesn't seem to appear as much in RPD's, even as a beloved.  At least that I've noticed lately anyway.  So far I only recall (please correct me if I'm wrong) one other person being claimed by Him since I had my RPD in 2016.  And I only know of one other who has Him as a parent.  Also my beloved Set while well known, isn't exactly the most popular god around because of the Contendings, and the general public of course views Him as the typical god of evil and such, but He's so much more than just the god of chaos.  Anyway, that's my two cents.

My Dad is pretty uncommon (I’m the only Geb kid so far, but He has popped up as a Beloved for some other people!)
I’m not surprised because He’s pretty vast. I’ve had experience with Shu and had a relationship with Tefnut for a while as well. Been inclined towards Hapy too actually. There’s plenty of other Odd Gods I’ve tried to ‘hit up’ as it were, but I’m not usually successful lol

As for Sobek, words fail to describe His greatness. My heart overflows when I think of Him. Aaand I'm going to go work on some poetry for the Sobek devotional...

I also noticed that Heru-sa-Aset doesn't have many children or show up often as a beloved. It's always nice meeting others though~!

Though not "little" in any sense, I have a great fondness for Tem. He always seems so very close, yet so very far at the exact same time. I usually pray to Him (as Netjer) unless I'm focusing on a specific Name, but it did make me sad He never shows up in an RPD separately (but technically does in everyone's).

I only mention Him because He definitely has a certain "persona" to me (though still overwhelmingly abstract too). I usually relate Him to the Evening Sun, as a Creator, and usually in an anthropomorphic state (with His fancy beard) when He stand on His own. The awesome perk is that He always reminds me that everything is Him, and He is everything. So talking to any of the Names is talking to Him, and to treat all people & things (including yourself) with care because everything is part of His flesh. Sort of the idea to try not to hurt others, because you are also hurting Netjer or making Him/Them sad.

It just gives a really nice fuzzy feeling inside that He's all around us, and cares so deeply to be all the Names for us too~ I wasn't sure if anyone else had Him in a similar way? I guess He might be considered popular, but not talked about much on His own. :)

The Ra in my RPD lineup tends to express Himself to me most often in the form of Ra-Atum, so I interact with a syncretism of Atum often. Like you, I was a bit sad He could not be part of my RPD directly, but He is still very much present due to His connection to all the other Names! I get Him as a sunset god, but also as the sun in the Duat, or in the timeless space of the Nun. He is a creator god, and is the potential for everything that exists, or that might exist, being brought into reality through thought, word, and action. He is a transformative god, and very much about inert things becoming alive, active, or animated. (He also expresses Himself as Ra-Wesir.)

I'm always to pleased to hear that others interact with Him, too. :D

Though not "little" in any sense, I have a great fondness for Tem. He always seems so very close, yet so very far at the exact same time. I usually pray to Him (as Netjer) unless I'm focusing on a specific Name, but it did make me sad He never shows up in an RPD separately (but technically does in everyone's).

I only mention Him because He definitely has a certain "persona" to me (though still overwhelmingly abstract too). I usually relate Him to the Evening Sun, as a Creator, and usually in an anthropomorphic state (with His fancy beard) when He stand on His own. The awesome perk is that He always reminds me that everything is Him, and He is everything. So talking to any of the Names is talking to Him, and to treat all people & things (including yourself) with care because everything is part of His flesh. Sort of the idea to try not to hurt others, because you are also hurting Netjer or making Him/Them sad.

I am here to say I have very similar experiences with Atum!! They are probably the Name I am closest to next to my Father and I very much experience them as a Creator and Father of all if that makes sense? Like they feel very calming and vast to me and even thinking about them makes me feel happy and slightly more connected to everything as well as cared for. I REALLY relate to getting them in connection with the timeless space of the Nun, the first time I interacted with them I actually got a strong mental image of them sitting on a throne smiling amid a vast space, which I feel like was probably the Nun.

I can definitely relate to wishing they could've shown up in my RPD but even though I usually need like 30894021 confirmations anyone, even one of the Names, actually likes me (thx mental illness) Atum's love is just so Present every time I think of them that I dont mind not having a written sealed confirmation they care because the feelings are just so There. The only other name I feel that way about is my divined Father <3

In the past year, my Father has most often appeared to me as Ra-Atum-Heruakhety or Atum-Ra-Heruakhety (there seems to be a subtle difference!) - which very much makes sense to me, since I also have Tefnut and Shu in my lineup.

I am a child of Khnum, and He is the one who is most "active" with me. I honestly can't say in words how much He means to me, and how much He helps me in daily life.

Dua Khnum!

Amunet is one of my mothers.  There are only two children of Amunet so far, and one or two beloveds, so she is definitely what I would call "rare". :)

My Beloveds Nebthet and especially Taweret are well-known Names that I don't see around often. Nebthet is steadily building in popularity, though, with a slew of additional Beloved divinations.

Nefertem is an "odd god" on his own, but Nefertem-Imhotep is probably rather high on the oddness scale. As far as I know, we didn't even think Imhotep could be in one's lineup.
