Actually, I have another question - I've seen her name spelled both "Serket" and "Serqet".  "Serqet" seems to be the favored spelling, but does it indicate a difference in pronunciation? ^_^;

Its debated whether her name means "She who allows the throat to breath, or she who strangles."

I think this is what has me so fascinated by her - that she's both a healer and a guardian, able to cure poisons but also to inflict them on anyone who threatens those she's protecting.  I'm the sort of person who will do anything to comfort or to defend my friends and loved ones when they need it, so I immediately felt a sort of kinship with Serqet when I began reading about her.

Hello, everyone!  My name is, obviously, Ivy.  After years with no religion or spirituality at all, I've recently started learning a very eclectic neo-pagan practice from a friend of mine and have found it quite fascinating so far.  I don't really know where I'm going with it yet, but one thing I've noticed already is that my most intense meditations have given me recurring images and ideas of scorpions.  I've been trying to find information on scorpion-related deities in case someone is trying to send me a message, and by far the most interesting I've found so far is Serket.  Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of information about her online.  

I was pointed towards this forum as a resource and I've spent a while poring over old threads - I've found the religious information here quite interesting and the community very friendly. ^_^  I admit, at this point I can't really see myself becoming a shemsu*, but I hope it isn't presumptuous of me to ask for your help anyway.  I'd be very interested in any information you can share with me about Serket and ways to contact her.  I know she's often seen as an aspect of Aset, but it's the scorpion side of her I'm most interested in.  Anything you can tell me about Serket, or any books or other resources you can recommend to me, would be most deeply appreciated.  Thank you!

* I hope I got this terminology right. ^_^;;
