[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Question regarding Predestination
« on: March 30, 2019, 05:35:50 am »
Certainly Isis, Osiris, Nepthys, Set and Horus the Younger have more personal stories and emotions, in common with Greek, Roman, Sumerian, Hindu Gods, but , perhaps just to me, the other gods of Egypt are powers operating in the universe and the world. Although Sekhmet is goddess of war and passion, there are no love affair stories in Her history as there are for Aphrodite, or  Inanna for example. She is more closely aligned with the energies of Minerva/Athena among Greeks but even that Goddess chose sides in the
Trojan war and contended with fellow gods.

Perhaps I see the Gods/Goddesses  of Egypt as powers because of their correlation to planets and stars. Sekhmet can be said to be Venus as the Morning Star which is suggested by the papyrus Destruction of Mankind as she is sent ‘down’ as Hathor, suggesting a descent, and setting foot as Sekhmet. Venus, when’s switching from beautiful Evening Star phase to Morning Star phase, does appear to come down quickly from the height of  the night sky. When it reappears in the morning sky it is very bright, as supposed to the first appearance of very pale in the evening sky. The Mayans also called the Morning Venus the Wasp Sting and went to war under that phase.

Either way, I see them as operant forces rather than persons, although they can manifest personally, but that is probably more my vision than the entire reality. However, when the forces manifest, they shape lives and those forces are written and unreel in our life over time. The forces are there, we can answer ‘yes’ or ‘no’ in every situation. Are we predisposed to answer one way or another? I think we are, but we can go against our own predisposition if we choose.

I have studied astrology for many years, including Hellenistic astrology which has its roots in Egypt. I am versed in both Tropical and Sidereal techniques which include the phases of the Fixed Stars, very much used in ancient Egypt along with lesser known techniques such as Primary Progressions, different from Secondary Progressions , both of which were used by Hellenistic astrologers who had their roots in ancient Egyptian practices.

I have found that when the planets align, the things indicated by them will happen. How they happen and to what extent is determined first by the condition of the planets in the birth chart: what they signify,whether they are strong in house or sign, what aspects they give and/or receive. The aspects can be beneficial or harmful.

The individual has choice to act or not to act. The individual can choose against their ‘nature’...to forgo something or to accept it i.e the native wants to accept X but forgoes or doesn’t want X but accepts. It seems to me, having studied my chart and others in depth, that people have events when indicated and choose according to the nature of their chart.

In this case we are very predestined although certain charts give a greater latitude: middling charts as they are known give a middling destiny whereas stronger charts make ones destiny/fate more inevitable.

As the Neters are Functions rather than Persons (in the way Greek gods are ‘persons’ having ‘personalities’) the Neters via their function/characteristics most closely embodied in one’s chart color or drive one’s life.

For example, a chart showing a strong sun, well placed by sign and house, receiving beneficial aspects from Mars, also well placed by sign and house could be said to be close to the Neters Horus & Sekhmet. Their life would also be colored by the attributes of these Neters. 

Astrology is a very subtle science and done correctly and in depth can reveal much. We still have free will choice of yes or no. However the pitfall is always our own nature: do we follow or do we not, and if so, which one is correct? Sometimes what seems a good choice is actually a disaster. We may learn through it, but that is the hard way. Has our spirit decided to take the harder path? These are metaphysical questions which many have pondered and cannot be answered with certainty this side of theRiver.

Welcome! I hope you find many connections here.

My shrine contains statues of Bast, Sekhmet and Horus. I feel most connected with Sekhmet, but I love gardens and flowers,which seem best connected with Bast, also cats. Horus & falcons are also venerated. I was born on Wag Festival.

Hello, I am new here. My speciality is using the Fixed Stars with the Egyptian Decans and calendar. I have a good place to view the horizon and watch the stars as they rise and set. I have been to Egypt and spent the night in the Great Pyramid and lay in sarcophagus. It was a tremendous experience. I am looking forward to participating in discussions with others who follow Gods of ancient Egypt.
