Yay! Congratulations! I've been a guest here for nearly twelve years and am contemplating sending my application in. (I did fill it in once but never sent it.) It's nice to know I'm not the only one who likes to mull things over! :)

Dua Netjer for Dr Banks, what a star! Prayers for Friend. My fluffy boy, Draven, had awful UTI issues a few years back. We were very fortunate that some meds and a kitty fountain put him right. I hope you get a similar happy outcome.

I'm going to filch and change a saying I saw in a magazine recently: When Netjer send waves, learn to surf. Sending prayers, strength, and a mental surf board to help you through these difficult times.

As someone who comes from a long line of people who suffered with mental health problems (my great-grandmother even had electro-shock therapy), and who is still dealing with their own problems after ten years, let me say you have my heartfelt sympathies.

I'm not great at writing prayers but I will say "May Serqet and Sekhmet work in unison to help give your loved ones peace of mind and good health"

I just wanted to say thank you again for all your prayers. We've had a tough couple of weeks; one of our cats was in hospital with liver problems (luckily she's been given the all clear) and I ended up at the Early Pregnancy Unit. I had what I assumed was a miscarriage and was pretty down.

Yesterday I went to have a scan to find out what was happening and we heard a heartbeat. Baby Lucky is measuring at 6 weeks and three days, with a heart rate of 121bpm. I'm still on bed rest but, after seven years of trying, this is the furthest we've ever got.

Dua Netjer!

Hello again, I thought I'd give an update for those who are curious.

I'm now eleven days past a five day blastocyst transfer. Yesterday afternoon I noticed some light 'spotting' (sorry, tmi) and had a bit of a meltdown. In the evening, I took a test despite my official test day not being until Thursday. I wanted to see a negative to square away in my head that treatment had failed. Five minutes later I had a positive test in my hands!

My clinic have put me on rest as that's all they can do at this early stage. Bleeding in early pregnancy, especially IVF is normal but with my history there is some mild concern. All we can do is wait and pray. Thank you again for your prayers, so far they are working!

TL:DR am currently pregnant but am keeping an eye out for miscarriage

Hello everyone.

I'm just about to go for my fourth embryo transfer (second frozen) and was wondering if some of you could offer prayers on our behalf?

For those that don't know, my husband and I started trying for a family in 2011 and began our IVF/ICSI journey in 2015. Our first cycle was positive but I miscarried. The frozen transfer from that cycle didn't take. We had our second cycle last spring and, once again, I miscarried. I'm just hoping that history doesn't repeat itself again.

I'm clinging to little 'omens' like our rainbow baby (baby born after miscarriage) is being put back in during pride month. We also found a beautiful blue Tawaret amulet in a curiosity shop last weekend. Fingers crossed!

Thank you.

Ive experienced Bast as very large black/blue cat on all four legs and as a human with a cat head. I've never seen her as an animal on it's hind legs, that is interesting. I've had dreams of either Anpu or Wepwawet as an animal on two legs, kind of like a werewolf.

When talking to my husband I often use informal nicknames (for Netjer I feel comfortable with and hopefully won't be offended) so he can keep up with who I mean.

Bast - Bast kitty, especially when talking about Her festival where I celebrate my cats. It's basically cat Christmas.

Wepwawet - Oofy.

Sutekh - Big Red

Djehuty - Beaky

Wesir - Osiris the gardening dude

Anpu - Nooby

Nut - Sky lady

I sometimes refer to Hethert as Cow lady Who owns the city. I live in a town - that likes to call itself a city - called Milton Keynes. If you're from the UK, you'll know us for our roundabouts and concrete cow statues. Cows are a big deal here in MK, so I like to think of Her as our secret patron. We're also a temple to the sun http://sianandjackie.blogspot.co.uk/

Thanks for the replies so far everyone. I've much to ponder.

Hotep Senneferet!  *henu*

 If it helps you can think of Her as a goth version of Hethert and/or an outgoing/social version of Nebt-het (I picture a 1920's era flapper when trying to describe Her to others). 

Ha ha! I found this very amusing and interesting as I consider myself to be a goth who is also interested in Art Deco fashion. I'm a big fan of decopunk and dark cabaret. It helps that I'm finding ways to connect with Hethert, as I've often been told that She's part of my life and wants to help. A divination I had nearly eight years ago said She wanted to "sail with my blessing" and I never understood what that meant. I also have my own UPG that She wanted my first daughter to be dedicated to Her. (After two rounds of IVF that both ended in miscarriage, I could do with a bit of help from Her on that front!)

A bit more info on why Tasenetnofret/Tasenetneferet sticks out for me; I have always been taken with the name Sennefer. I don't know why, it just speaks to me. Eleven years ago, when I found this forum, I decided to give myself a Kemetic name. One morning, whilst still half asleep, I decided to feminise Sennefer by sticking 'et' on the end, hence my name. I've never studied hieroglyphs or the ancient Egyptian language so I have no idea if it's even accurate, but it's stuck with me. My hodgepodge attempts to find out what Senneferet means led me to a translation of "The good wife" or "the good sister". After discovering Tasenetnofret, I'm now aware that 'Senneferet' is the equivalent of getting the kanji symbol for 'courage' tattooed on your bum, only to find out it means 'soup'! le sigh :)

I shall have to look into Tefnut and the temple of Kom Obo some more. I've tried connecting with Nebt-Het on her epag day but get nothing but static back. Both She and Aset intimidate me a little bit, like the popular girls in school.

As for Heru-Wer, I could do with some strength and a 'can-do' attitude in my life right now.

Senebty :)

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Heru Wer and Tasenetnofret
« on: March 17, 2018, 07:23:43 am »
I've said on other threads that I usually get my shrine icons from charity shops, market stalls etc. I like the Netjer to come to me when They feel the time is right. A few days ago, whilst browsing an antiques store, I found a wonderful Heru statue. After some pondering, I believe it represents Heru-Wer.

I haven't had much contact with Heru-Wer, apart from his epag day but have found I am fascinated by Him. My research has also led me Tasenetnofret 'the good wife'. I understand She is a form of Hethert (who also has a place on my shrine) but I can't find much more information on Her.

Any stories or insight into these two would be greatly appreciated! :)

Welcome! I also have an interest in Hellenism, whether Greek paganism appeals to me because of it's own merits or it's connection to Egypt I cannot say. Nevertheless, Hermes, Dionysus, Athena, and Persephone have received attention from me over the years.

I've also recently dipped my toe into Norse and Brythonic (pre-Roman Britain) paganism to try to connect with my ancestors and homeland.

There's no way I'll ever be able to afford being buried in a mausoleum. Burial plots on their own (in the UK) are starting to cost thousands of pounds, plus there are usually strict rules on what you can have as a memorial these days. My husband and I are both against cremation so our current plan is to find a reasonably priced woodland cemetery to go in, when the time comes. I'm not sure what things will be allowed to go in the plot with us but I wasn't planning on taking the BoD with me anyway. My ankh necklace will probably go to one of my children (if they ever arrive) if I'm not allowed it buried with me.

Prayers for your cat. On a more mundane note, have you tried Feliway to help ease some of her anxiety?
