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,

Em hotep, Brother!

It's so exciting to have you back as a sibling - especially someone who has that "Ptah in His Harem" experience. ;)

I'm a newer Shemsu (divined/named in March 2012). Ptah-Sokar takes up the bulk of my devotional focus as the sun my other Father and Beloveds move around. Also nice to see people who make devotional writing too!

I look forward to getting to know you!

Oh, Julia... i'll have her in my prayers.

Em hotep, Sekhep!

I am so sorry you have had this experience. How sad that you put yourself out on the line to get negativity in return!

I for one found your work moving. I've neglected to reach out with further commentary due to Retreat, but hope to do so soon.

Em hotep, Shezep! *hugs*

It is good to see you, always. :) I am glad you've had chances to keep growing in your path and in tai chi :D
