"He who separates Heaven from Earth" or "He who separated Sky from Earth" tends to be in tune with the rising sun, which splits the sky from the earth somewhat literally on the horizon at daybreak.


(This also speaks well to his associations in certain contexts to the rising sun and Ra)

Wow, 18 years? That's about as long as I've been gone. I've just submitted an application to take the beginner's class again because I have forgotten so much. Do you think that's a good idea?

I was in the class of 2001 (went to retreat that same year) and yep I came back just before Wep Ronpet last year :)

I think if you feel called to or more comfortable with re-taking the beginner's class, absolutely go for it! It's a great way to re-familiarize yourself with everything, and it definitely can't hurt, so why not!

I decided not to re-take the beginner's class because I felt I'd kept fairly current on my Kemetic practice, even when I was severely wandering for a chunk of years (including other paths) I always tried to stay current and it was always calling me back / pulling at me. I actually found I remembered quite when I came back which was quite a feat for my brain :)

When I came back, I did speak with Hemet via email and just kind of gauge 'how' I could/should come back so to speak just so I could have feedback, it was mentioned I could come back at any level I felt comfortable with -- from the beginning all the way up to the level I was at when I left -- so that was very helpful. I came back as a Shemsu at first and after several months "re-upped" to Shemsu-Ankh. I did definitely run my own refresher through the beginner's lessons in the member's area.

It's been quite the experience over the last year and I'm glad to be back! Being at a completely different stage of my life (nearly 20 years, woo boy) brings an incredible new perspective on being a part of this community.

By the way I see your username has a "2" on it, if you need help with that, if you need help to re-gain access to your old account (if it still exists), Rev. Tjesi could probably help with that.

I understand that hesitancy, I was gone for 18 years. I've been back just over a year now and sometimes it feels like I never left. There is no judgment here, and a person's path can take them far and wide before they finally return home, I think we all realize that.


Welcome back!

Em hotep, welcome!

We definitely don't judge here the way people connect with Netjer/God, if it works for you, then it works!

When I first came here a long while back, I also didn't experience any kind of specific connection to one Deity or another, and it actually took some time after I was divined (because it was a total surprise seeing as I had no previous inkling of Who might be my Parent/patron Deity) to really make that connection, but once I did, life changed in ways I never could have imagined. So I always say, keep an open mind, you never know what life has in store for you, particularly when the Gods are involved! But at the end of the day, you do you, and what works, works! :)

Do you have access to your Kemet.org account? If so, log in and go to Materials > Offerings

Yinepu has quite a few suggestions, here is the direct link (you will still need to be logged in)!

Chocolate and Dark Rum or other darker alcohols are recurring themes for both Yinepu and Wepwawet :)

May his ka be justified. May Ma'at prevail and the perpetrator be found quickly.

ii-wy em hotep!

I've never met anyone in my travels using the "Its" pronoun, that is very interesting :) I love learning new things from new people.  I imagine that must be even harder to explain to others than for us non-binary people using They/Them in the singular form.

May you always be met with acceptance and love <3

For me, my Father embodies unconditional love. I presume the same will be found amongst all of the members here that their Parents will be Love in so many ways :)


Thinking outside of that, the first to come to mind would be Hethert when I think about Love.


Hapi embodies the very River Nile itself and its flooding. There is no reason at all that cannot also correspond to the sea. Why not? The Nile flows through Egypt and empties into the Mediterranean Sea after all. Tefnut is another that comes to mind, She is water/moisture.


For money I might go more abstract to the idea of fortune, and Renenutet comes to mind as She relates to fate.

Em hotep, welcome :)


I joined many moons ago for similar reasons, on the heels of Catholic/Christian roots, having gone toward Kemetic Paganism but still missing the community and structure of the church.
