[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Netjeri studies
« on: April 07, 2020, 01:08:36 am »
Em hotep everyone!

As many of you probably know, I am very found of studying the historically attested Netjeri of Kemet.
I'm opening this thread for me and you all share Names of Netjeri and their functions.
QUICK WARNING: Sometimes is hard to tell or get to a conclusion if a deity is a Netjeri or Netjeru. It depends a lot on the sources you are looking for (or even on your own experiences), so this is NOT a rule!

I have a few I'd like to share and I will update with more throught time:

Ammit or Ammut ("The Devourer of the Dead") is a big Netjeri that serves Ma'at. He devoures those whose ib (heart) is heavier than the feather of Truth, in the Halls of the Ma'ati.

Arrows (Sheser, Sehmayw and Khatiu. Also Bast-Mut's arrows)
The Arrows are groups of Netjeri that serves multiple Names, such as Sekhmet, Bast and Mut.
Most of them are usually known to spread diceases or protect Ma'at from those who causes Isfet.
Sometimes they are called only Arrows (Sheser), or They can receive names, such as the Shemayw (The Wanderers) and the Khatiu (executioners).
Mut's arrows (as Netjeri, since Bast's can be big Netjeru) have names for each of Them: A'a Pehety, Khenepib, Neb Khenenu, Herefemsedjet, Imy Wety Hapy, Shed Kheru em Khenu Tjemsuef and Ka Desher.

He personifies the creative powers of Ra, since He is born before or in the moment Ra appears in the Nun. He is also called the Ba of Ra.

Children of the Ma'ati, i.e. Aset and Nebt-het (Netetef em Neket and Sheta-Kheperu)
These two are found on the Nesperhecan Papyrus. They are said to have come from the Ma'ati.
Netetef em Neket (He which damages?) is pleaded to have any powers over the limbs of the deceased. He have the appearence of a lion in rage and he appears above the title "Ruler of the Living" (Heqa Ankhu).
Sheta-Kheperu (Of Mysterious Forms) suffers the bai of the deceased so he can ascend to the sky and "fraternize with the stars of heaven". He have the shape of a mummified divinity with ass's head holding a gecko with both hands.

The Smiter or The Surfire One is a (possibly) similar to a sheet-ghost look like Netjeri. All we can see are His feet and eyes. He is mentioned on spell 17 of the Book of the Dead as the one "who shines with his eye without being seen, who circles the sky with the flame of his mouth and predicts the inundation when it is not yet seen".

The Coiled One is a serpent who encircles Ra/Wesir on the journey to the Duat and protects Him. He is said to be a Netjeri of Geb or even a form of the earth Netjer.

"To Cause to Breath" is a Netjeri with a Mouse-Form. He is the "the hidden powers of Ra in the Duat", He appears on the Book of the Caverns.
He follows Ra with other Netjeri and carry the image of the Sun Netjer. He (Ra) brings the body of those who are in the Duat so Sereq can make them breath.

Seven Hetherts
Like many cases here, They can be either Netjeru or Netjeri. They are said to determinate the fate of a recently birth child or even predict the nature of one's death. They can have multiple names variations depndend of the sources.

Seven Scorpions
The citation of Them that I know is from the Metternich Stela. It's a group of Seven Scorpions related to Serqet that Protects Aset in Her journey with Heru-sa-Aset. They also poisons those who offends Aset. Their names are Tefen, Befen, Mestet, Mestetef, Petet, Tjetet and Matet.

Snakes and Weavers/Crocodiles of Nit
The Hefauut and the Khendwt of Nit are the Snakes and Crocodiles (also called Weavers) that are created by Nit right on the Primordial Moments. They are called on the Coffin Texts, sailing with Nit in the Abyss. They are said to be the possessors of the Souls from the waters.

Those of the Thrones who are in the body of [Name of Netjer] (Nestyw-imyw-khet-[Name of Netjer])
Spirits that are over months of each Kemetic season, they protect the months.
They come in group of four Spirits and the name of each (they are different for each month) can be found on the Daybook.
II Akhet - Those of the Thrones in the body of Atum
III Akhet - Those of the Thrones in the body of Shu
IV Akhet - Those of the Thrones in the body of Set
II Peret - Those of the Thrones in the body of Djehuty
III Peret - Those of the Thrones in the body of Ptah
IV Peret - Those of the Thrones in the body of Heru (?)
III Shomu - Those of the Thrones in the body of Geb
IV Shomu - Those of the Thrones in the body of Wesir

Three groups of fishes
The Abdju, Desheru and Inet fishes protects and guides the bark of Ra/Amun

I've managed to find three that seem to work for Wesir:
Hapwy (Two Fronds), protector of Heru-sa-Aset, also called Friend of Wesir. He helps Khnum revivify Wesir and defeats evil Netjeri.
Djeser-Tep (Holy/Elevated of Head) follows Wesir, punishes the deceased and rises the heads of those who are justified. Appears on the 42 confessions, on the one that speaks about taking off the offerings of the Akhu.
Medes-tep (The one with sharp face) slaughter the enemies of Wesir and of the deaceased. Appears in the Book of Hours.

I would love to know what Netjeri you all know or would like to add on the Ones I talked about. My plan is to post here the basics of other Netjeri that I meet in my lifetime.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / What's your favorite Holiday?
« on: November 19, 2019, 11:27:46 pm »
What's your favorite Kemetic holiday to celebrate and why?

Mine is definitely Aset Luminous because 1. She's my mother and it's one of Her most important rites, 2. It's really touching to me in any mean I can give it to it, it's a festival that can mess with the depths of my Heart
The Mysteries of Wesir are very special too, for some reason I get really dedicated to my Wesirian celebration hahaha

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Images of Bast
« on: April 30, 2019, 07:35:57 pm »
Em Hotep, everyone!

I was wondering if someone could link me or send me pictures of Bast from temple walls, tombs or papyrus. All I can find on google is only modern images or statues of Her.


[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / "Negative" aspects of the Names
« on: January 27, 2019, 05:49:27 pm »
Em hotep family,

I was thinking on how Ma'at and Creation is all about the balance of all the things, and this include "good" and "bad". That being said I started to think about what kind of "negative" events each Name can be related to.
For exemple: Aset as Weret Hekau, to me, could definetely be linked to  tsunamies and natural catastrophes like this. Another - more "human-like" - thing I can relate Aset to is the end of relationships and hard situations that lead to end of cycles.

While I was writting this I remember that a pagan friend of mine wrote a text (or talked about with me, not sure) about how Aphrodite is related to all kind of relationships, not only lovely and romantic ones, but also to abusive and hard relationships.

It is a fact, not only personally and spiritually, but also through epithets and texts, that the gods (from all pantheons) have "good" and "bad" qualities and some of the "bad" ones would probably be quite scary for humans, so, I want to know from you all, what """bad""" qualities and things can you relate to your gods?


Em hotep everyone,

Our brother SeqebebHethertheri (Seqeb) are planing on doing a wikipedia about the Names e since he doesn't speak english, I asked him if he wanted me to do a text asking internacional help hahaha <3
The idea is that everyone can participate, and then we will gatter all the information you bring to us and make it both in portuguese and english.
For those who wishes to help, you can comment here the following questionnaire about the Name you choose (Please do it a Name at time):

1. Name: variations and meanings
2. Aspects and Syncretysms
3. Iconographies
4. Family
5. Association with other Netjeru
6. Epithets
7. Atributes
8. Centers of adoration and cult (cities, temples and nomes)
9. Food and liquid offerings
10. Taboos
11. Sacred objects (staffs, instruments, symbols, crowns...)
12. Symbols
13. Minerals (stones and metals)
14. scents
15. Colors
16. Flowers and plants
17. Animals
18. Numbers
19. Festivals
20. Priests
21. Sacred Texts (Hymns, Hekau and invocation)

Thank you so much!

[PUBLIC] FAQ: RPD (Rite of Parent Divination) / Personality and Parents
« on: December 28, 2018, 07:50:45 pm »
Em hotep everyone,
I was thinking: in religions from which we have conceptions of Parent deities, there are usually some patterns in the children of each deity, as there is in candomblé.
I know some things can be VERY shallow, but it's fun to think about it anyway. So: have you noticed some specific characteristics of children of each Name?

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / The Ogdoad Series
« on: December 11, 2018, 05:25:08 pm »
Em Hotep everyone!

I want to share a new project I'm doing, the Ogdoad Series.
So, you probably has seen me talking and asking about the Ogdoad here in the forum for some time now, so I decided to put all that I know on texts!
I'll be posting texts on my blog (but I don't know how long it will take for me to post them, so be patient), which is in portuguese, but I'll be translation them to english for those who want to read it!

In this project I plan on writting about each couple, exploring what they represented on the pre-zepi tepi times and what they became after merging into Creation it self.

I made a introduction text about it, and I'll link it here and also post the whole text here:


PART 1 – The Khmeniu

Since I began to study Kemetic religions and beliefs, one topic that interested me was the cosmogonies, especially the one in Hermopolis.

A cosmogony is a scientific, religious, or lyrical explanation of the Creation of the universe(s) and within the Egyptian cosmogonies we have something that differs from many cultures: the existence of life forms even before the Creation of everything and in city of Hermopolis, the capital of the XV nome of Upper Egypt, we have one of the Creation myths that best explore and work with this pre-Creation forms of life.

Hermopolis is the name given by the Greeks and means “The City of Hermes”, for the Egyptians called it Khmunu, translated as “The City of Eight” and this name is due to its creation myth.

In short, it is said that there were eight gods before all, four couples representing primordial principles, namely the Khmeniu (or called by the Greeks as the Ogdoad, both translated as “Group of Eight”):

  • Nun and Naunet, the Primordial Ocean;
  • Kek and Kauket, the Darkness or the Void;
  • Heh and Hauhet, Eternity or Time;
  • Ammon and Amunet, the Occult.
The men, Nun, Kek, Heh, and Ammon were represented with toads’ heads, while the women, Naunet, Kauket, Hauhet, and Amunet, were represented with serpent’s head, and they had the appearance of these animals due to Nun and Naunet, who represented what existed the most in this pre-existential realm: water.

As said, Nun and Naunet are the waters that existed before everything else. The ocen withou end, beginning or edges that circulated throughout the pre-universe and which guaranteed the (pre-)existence of the other three couples.

Kek and Kauket are the embodiment of darkness, the lack of light that precedes light itself, caused by the void of the space.

The next couple, Heh and Hauhet, are the very infinity of time, the temporal cycles. That is, the continuum existing before everything and present till infinity.

And finally, Ammon and Amunet – which can sometimes be exchanged for a variant of couples like Gereh and Gerhet, but here we will focus on Ammon and Amunet – who represent that which is Hidden or Occult. This couple is the closest to Creation, then being the kinetic power that itself causes the pre-Creation to maintain or to cause Creation.

It is also valid to say that each couple is not composed of separated gods or “a deity that can be both male and female,” but rather principles that are complete in the form of a couple but which may come to manifest separately after Creation.

From here on we will have variations of the myth: a disturbance of all this chaotic-order occurs and causes a mount (called Benben) to arise and on it is born Ra, giving light to everything and provoking the creation of the universe(s).

The different variations of the myth may have as creator principle Nit, Djehuty, Ptah, Tem (Atum) or Amon himself. The best-known says that a lotus arises, caused by Nit (which here has the form of Naunet), and from it is born Kephera/Ra or that the Ibis of Djehuty, or Gengen Wer, the sacred goose of Amon, place an egg on the Mount Benben and from it Ra is born.

And so the Ogdoad sacrifices itself so that it’s concepts allow the creation to take place.

And with that I start for you a series of texts about Ogdoad. I warn you that this project, even though it is short, can come to last for months or even years to be finalized.

I plan to write texts exploring, from historical, theological, and personal interpretations resulting from studies and experiences, each text about one of the four couples and dealing with how they were before Creation and how they merged into the Same.

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Sobek's buttocks?
« on: November 24, 2018, 10:32:01 pm »
Em hotep everyone!

I was reading the day book and on the festival of Sobek to see his mother Nit it is said "The proceeding of the Majesty of Sais of Lower Egypt to his mother
Neith, to [let her] see that he was suffering from his buttocks." (CC).
This made me curious about what happened to his buttocks? Is it part of a myth that I'm not aware?

Thank you

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Nut
« on: November 11, 2018, 10:34:10 pm »
Em hotep, everyone,

How you've being doing?
I wanted to know some personal views and experienced you had with Nut, what are her tastes and likes, what to offer, how do you feel her... This kind of things...
I had a few contacts and I feel her as a very deep goddess, she really seems to take valuable time to show herself to you, she seem to me as quite quiet, but not Nebethet-quiet, more like someone who thinks everything she wants to say before doing it so, and when she does, she says a lot.

Thank you!
