Oh. Okay.

I'd personally look at how both Aset and Nebet Het are very similar.  I'd focus on their similarities and go from there.  Aset-Nebet Het is very much the Lady of the West, Goddess of the Underworld, so maybe colors like blue and purple. 

Aset as Lady of the West was offered grapes and cucumbers and fruit. I found this in a book which I can't remember off the top of my head.  The book may have been the Shrine of Tutankhamun, maybe.

Some offering ideas could be water, flame, vegetables, roses, fruit and cake.

I hope that helps.

There is only some information on the Ma'ati as they are a fusion of Aset and Nebet Het.  I have experienced Them a couple times. I have heard Them speak as  one or Aset speaking for both. 

They are primarily found, iirc, in the Hall of  Ma'ati, which is the place where the dead are judged.  I know that the dissertation to Nephthys by Jessica Levai mentions Them, but it's only a paragraph or so.

I would love to help with this. 
I filled out Aset's already.  Where  do you want me to send  the information?

Nebet Het and Set had a child, but this child's name isn't mentioned.  Some scholars think this child is Yinepu.  So Set can *possibly* be his Dad. 

I think they would get along.

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: What is the color of Set?...
« on: December 22, 2018, 09:37:58 pm »
One of Set's epithets is the Red Lord.  Gods in general were said to have a skin made of gold. 

Set's hair is sometimes depicted red in some statues or in some modern drawings.

I have seen some animal form statues painted red.  Red is Set's primary color.

My website is in my signature if you want information about Aset (Auset; Isis), Nebet Het (Nephthys), Wepwawet, Ra or Sekhmet-Mut. 

I also have books published about Aset, Nebet Het and Wepwawet.

Well, there's https://www.helpingtawy.com and the HON website: http://www.kemet.org.

Many members have various blogs and websites, but those are personal and not officially HON sites.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Offerings question
« on: November 06, 2018, 12:48:53 pm »
Em Hotep!
I have a question to those that know more than I. For daily Senut, what do you all do when you're dirt poor and really don't have anything to offer, as far as food, or anything else for that matter? My husband and I are going through rough financial times with my chronic illness issues and having to take FMLA leave (days mostly, but on 2 weeks leave right now).

Offer what you eat.  If it is good enough for you to eat,  it is good enough for you to offer it.  At least that's the advice I got from Aset. 

Water is a great offering.  Coffee or tea are great offerings too. 

Say a prayer in your head before you eat if you are eating with others who would not share or understand your faith.  That way you can offer the food on your plate and eat  it.  Anyway, that's my advice.

Aset, Nebet Het, Nut and Hethert are liminal deities and psychopomps as they all  are the Ladies of the West/Afterlife/Amenti goddesses.  Aset and Nebet Het together help the sun rise and set which is a very liminal time. 

I'd also include Wepwawet and Yinepu as well for their liminal roles.

Em hotep.

Others have already explained it.  So I'll just mention a book:

Symbol and Magic in Egyptian Art by Richard H. Wilkinson talks about symbols of numbers and colors and other things.

« on: August 20, 2018, 02:52:33 pm »
Em hotep,

Broken shrine items can just be thrown away.  You could place them in a separate  bag and then throw them away too, I suppose.  Then, if you can, replace the item.

I have a section for Ra on my website.

Ra is one of my Beloveds.  I offer Him water.  I'm also working on an anthology for Him.

Nebet Het likes chocolate, cheesecake, strawberry  flavored pastries, pastries, cookies, brownies, vegetables, fruits, beef, bread, coca-cola and sprite. 

Taboos: pork, fish (as Wesir's consort/mourner) and the color yellow
