I had a bit of an epiphany when I went through a bad patch emotionally last December. I was dealing with my resistance to honour my Akhu because of abusive acts and tendencies on some of their parts, and also rage at others for not stopping the abusers. Much of my rage was centred in my 'heart chakra' area. I knew that Khonsu did help with mental illness so I did call out to him (as well as Netjer in general) to help.

Imagine my surprise when I learned that some of Khonsu's epithets from Unas' pyramid writings described Him as "It is Khonsu who slew the lords, who strangles them for the King and extracts for him what is in their bodies, for he is the envoy who is sent to punish". Later periods also describe him as "CT 311, that Khonsu “lives on hearts,” capable of sending out "the rage which burns hearts" and 994 that he “lives on heads.” "

Healing and protective deities need to do violence to do their jobs - battling enemies, illness, etc. The 'rage which burns hearts' phrase really hit me because of what I was experiencing, though it might be more accurate to say he 'ate/purified/etc.' the rage and pain in my heart, as it has not reappeared since. :) [Definitely the Hawk-headed icon suits this aspect more than the child icon.]

@Sedjfaiemitui   Thank you for the explanation re 'ms'. It confirmed nicely something I was puzzling over with Ky on Discord last night. <3

Heh. Turns out it's Fifth Dynasty, during the reign of Neferirkare Kakai. :D

I've got both birth and adopted family so this is a veeeeery pared down version. The tin holds other pics and obits I couldn't include on the wall. :D
