What I'm interested in is the "throw them & read them how they fall for meaning" version....

Try this book, it says "An intuitive approach" on the cover, but the authors told me that it is actually NOT an intuitive approach, nor is at an approach where you look up what the cards mean in a guidebook; it's more based on what's going on with you and your question.

I've had a connection to Wadjet for some time, since approximately high school. I bought a little stone cobra at a gem show once, put it on my shrine and asked who it was. I heard "Wadjet" and got the sense She was a guardian. That's how Wadjet came to my shrine. I've been itching to get a serpent tattoo for a while.

When I was a Jackal Weekend at Tawy, I was instructed by the jackal himself to get a small statue and set up a shrine facing the most-used door in the house. In addition to my Senut & Akhu shrines which are inside and on top of a closed cabinet, this Jackal shrine has been elaborated into a black divination bowl He liked, an etched glass Yinepu I made in high school 18 years ago, and an incense bowl/dish thing that was in the closing ceremony for the first Pagan camping gathering I ever attended. It's in my living room and so receives the informal prayers, toddler smiles, incense and candy offerings in my house. I don't do these things at any regular schedule, though.

I have Sekhmet as a "single mom" and see my Beloved Khenty-Amentiu as sort of an "uncle" figure, for lack of a better term. Course, having grown up without my real father, it's not so much of a mental stretch for me.

I got volumes one and two of 'Ancient Egyptian Literature' from I think volume one cost a dollar used, volume 2 cost $2.50 USD used. Also, abebooks gave me a coupon, so the total came up less than that. They came from an online textbook store, so while volume 1 was kind of beat up and had some annoying underlining and some "no duh" notes in the margins, for less than $5 which included shipping, I'm not going to complain.

(Anyone know of a good ritually pure glue? lol)

Make sticky sushi rice and then use a mortar/pestle and some water added as necessary to make a thick paste.

This type of glue is also archival!

I once saw straight-up Mut in a vision before my RPD, and it floored me. Her gown wasn't white or gold, but the best way I can describe it is as sunlight. Same color for Her royal vulture headdress. She was fully human, taller than all the other Names gathered around her, and definitely inspired awe. She inspired deep love and respect from me, and She did feel loving, in a slightly aloof, very dignified way. She was the distillation of Queen for me.

Yes, that is how I see Her as well. regal is the best word I can think to describe her; very much invested with female royal power.

I have experienced Mut alone, Sekhmet with Mut flavor, and Meretseger, which is, as I understand, Not exactly Sekhmet and not exactly Mut. It's funny, though, when I get the inspiration to have a Mut Image, Mut must be fully human, not Sekhmet-Mut, despite Sekhmet being my Mother. If I could find a replica of this, it would be awesome:

It's not Egyptian, but when I want to get into an ancient music mood, I listen to this:

And this:

This first is music on reproduction Sumerian instruments, the second is the oldest written music score in the world, found in the city of Ugarit, which to play devil's advocate, ancient Kemetic people had contact with. I listened to this while I did an illustration of the goddess it is dedicated to ;)

Welcome back both of you :D

I've been looking for one I like, but Mut in my mind is very specific and I'll probably just end up doing my own image, wither sculpture or a drawing...I'm just afraid I won't be able to do something good enough for Her.

I like the Ramses: Tarot of Eternity deck. It's given me quite a few "wow" draws.

Both of them are very lovely!

Quote from: Devo

The flail could be a whip, or some other instrument that I Have totally forgotten the name of...

A flail is simply an agricultural tool, used to winnow grain. Its use as a weapon (to my knowledge) came after its use in agriculture. Symbolically, there's a lot to that, especially for an agricultural people, paired with an animal husbandry tool, but agricultural flails look a lot like the ceremonial flail.

And I realize it's very stereotypically Iowan of me to know all about farm implements
