[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Pets: netjeri and akhu
« on: April 09, 2021, 03:31:51 am »
I keep my dog Lily’s shrine on my Akhu shrine. I know she’s not an akh, but it feels right. ;)

I actually had Rev. Neshnyt consult with Yinepu via fedw to confirm whether on not she was hanging around and wanted to be honoured as a netjeri! Let me tell you — I cried. Hard!

I keep a bowl of water, some dog toys, a teddy bear (she always loved teddies), and some of her favourite treats. When the treats get too stale, I replace them and put the old ones in the compost.

I don’t have any ... formal, I guess, interactions with her. Sometimes I catch a glimpse out of the corner of my eye, or I hear little pitter patters, or my cats become fixated. In those instances, I just say hello. ❤️

“Iunet” is the AE name for Dendera — more specifically, the temple complex to Hathor there features reliefs of birthing women. Looking into the temple’s history might be a good springboard!

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Re: Epithets of the Names

[ The Epithets of the goddess Aset ]

Sources:
→ Lexikon der Ägyptischen Götter und Götterbezeichnungen
→ The Goddess Isis by Luigi Tripani

Notes:
Em hotep! It took me a long time to put this together, but here's a 29-page, two-column list of my Mother's epithets. Where an epithet appears with multiple hieroglyph options, or in multiple places through Egypt, I've only listed it once. Similarly, where Her epithets embody two elements (for example, Her light causing plants to grow), I've only listed it under one of those categories. I recommend using ctrl + f to search the document!

** If you would like hieroglyphs, location or other source material on any of these epithets, please reach out to me! I left these out for the sake of time, space, formatting and copyright.

Em hotep,

The course often starts a couple of days late. :) Rest assured, if you responded to Rev Tanebet’s invitation, you’ve been enrolled and you will not be forgotten.

I love using raw kyphi/kapet. It’s perhaps my favourite scent — but as it’s quite expensive to burn daily, I only use it on special occasions and I prefer Japanese incense for my daily Senut.

One of Aset’s epithets is the Lady of Myrrh (*high fives Shenuty*), so when I have access to myrrh incense, that’s my preferred option. My incense stick brand of choice is Shoyeido, who make ritually pure, charcoal-free Tibetan Buddhist blends, and I’m currently burning through a box of their Honoka blend — sandalwood and frankincense.

Rev. Neshnyt shared this on the Discord server, and I thought it would be well-suited for the forums as well!

My Senut shrine

My shrine is finally at the point where I'm happy to share it.

The two small boxes are low-smoke frankincense and sandalwood Japanese incense, and the gold-and-white feather is an incense holder. The white lotus is a candle holder, and I use locally made beeswax tealights or votives. The off-white tray is a handmade clay sushi dish from Thailand, and I use it to present my offerings. The four white tea cups and matching tea pot are for cool water during the Senut.

On top of the puja table (made without dedication to the Hindu pantheon) are my AGI statues for my mother Aset, and my beloveds Tefnut and Heru. Though the AGI for Tefnut is a Sekhmet icon, it radiates Her energy. All three statues were specifically requested by the Names that they're being used to represent. Finally, the gold-painted wood carving at Aset's feet is my Shemsu name in hieroglyphs, a wonderful and unexpected Moomas present from Sesaiaset. ♥

Ii-wy em hotep, Jendayi! (Welcome in peace, Jendayi!)

Isis is my Mother and my patron, too! You’ll find a lot of devotees to Her in Her various forms in this Temple. ❤️ I hope you find what you’re looking for!

Senebty ❤️

I will never pass up the opportunity to share Hemet's lolcat translation of the Establishment of the Celestial Cow.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: What do you wear?
« on: December 31, 2020, 01:13:29 am »
I wear this pendant: two birds forming a circle, mouths open to embrace a garnet "sun". I'd never found the perfect piece of jewellery for my line-up before finding this one. I associate gold with Netjer more than any other metal, and in my mind's eye, the two birds are Aset and Tefnut, Eyes of Ra, ascending towards Him and intimately connected to each other. Now that Heru is officially part of my lineup, I find that He, too, is perfectly embodied by this piece: for He is the birds, He is the garnet sun, and He is the empty space between which, for me, represents the midday sky.

Anti-Racism resources specifically related to racism towards Indigenous Australians. This isn't listed in any particular order except for putting the research paper at the top. Apart from that one paper, it's a compilation pulled from my own collection. All authors are indigenous (as am I).
