It makes me happy to see more trans/Kemetic fam. Having people who get it makes a huge difference.

Em hotep Fabrico!

One of my Fathers is Ptah-Sokar, though I have honored Him before as Ptah-Sokar-Wesir. I relate very much to Neheh, He is a very expansive form of Ptah - and also the other two, Sokar and Wesir! It really is very natural to me, to experience Them together, They have a great deal in common. For myself, it was easier to get to know Them as individuals, then to see how They work as a unit.

I like to think of Them as a plant. Sokar is a seed deep in the ground, a still point of space-time that contains within Himself all possibilities. Wesir is the plant sprouting, a life coming from the darkness of the Duat. Ptah is the plant flowering, creating new life in the world around it. They are all different, but the same plant, the same Ptah-Sokar-Wesir.

Ptah-Sokar as a specific aspect is very creator focused, Sokar-Wesir is very Duat focused. Together Sokar bridges the mysterious gap between regeneration of one thing into the next. Ptah-Wesir is a great god of Kingship. Each is capable of Their role without the others, but by working as a unit, They work deeper than before.

Neheh, I am praying so intently for you both. I can't imagine how hard this must be. I love you.

Em hotep, nice to meet you!

The crook can be associated with all kinds of Kingly gods, regardless of their gender!

Mut is one example of a goddess of Kingship; Sekhmet-Mut actually came to mind when you mentioned red and gold, hence me bringing Her up.

My Father Ptah also sometimes comes with crook in hand.

Em hotep and welcome, Courtney!

We have a growing community around DC, so if you end up sticking around you'll be close to folks! :)

I feel like there are two kinds of formal. Anything that is considered "State," that is a rite that has been approved by the Nisut (AUS!) to follow the forms and standards set down by our Akhu, is automatically formal. The Priest's Rite, Senut, the Dua that we celebrate each week, and other holiday rites the priesthood put together are formal/State.

Some rites/heka that are developed in one's personal practice can be formal. The knot magic I worked for turning the dangers of the year was absolutely formal - I spent two hours before the shrine praying as I created my amulets! Others are less so - I wear certain types of clothing as a heka to associate me with Ptah-as-Creator, and this is not formal at all.

My informal tends to be like Tamiwi's - the small things that happen outside of ritual space; praying for purity and renewal while I watch the sunrise, cursing the evils of the day under my feet while I take a walk, seeing the beauty of Ptah-Sokar in my local brook.

I currently only have two shrine spaces (my senut shrine and my akhu shrine). I do informal and formal things at both places.

Hope this was helpful!

Em hotep Hethertgerut!

It's nice to meet you! I'm Khenne.

Hopefully one of the Reverends can get you reinstated to all the usual places. I would PM or email the webmaster to get all that set up!

Em hotep, Mirath!

It's nice to meet you. I'm also transmasc (non-binary); this is a pretty safe place to be as one is, thankfully. It's definitely also a safe place to ask questions, rather than just accepting what one is told - otherwise I would have been out of here six (?!?!) years ago!

Looking forward to getting to meet you,
