Definitely akhu overall, but especially for history and archaeology. Seshat for learning a new language and history/archaeology. A creator deity, such as Ptah, for physics, chemistry, and biology, and a healer-type deity for veterinary and possibly biology. Hethert-Nut or Nut or Heruakhety for astrophysics (spaaace). Hethert or Ihy for music, Khnum or Hethert for art.

My two cents. :)

Bes is definitely an overall-home guardian and god, and He was quite popular in the day with the common folk. No children required! :D

I consider Hethert a household deity as well, mostly because She encompasses so many things that are part of life and the home, but She's certainly not domestic, so that may or may not work for your needs. :)

I might suggest looking towards what you most do in your home for the gods Who may be linked to it. For example, in my house, we do a lot of crafting, woodworking, artisanal work, etc, so Ptah is basically the family deity because of His links to building and creation. Likewise, I have a (tiny) home business for said crafting, and Heru-wer has a shrine because of His more modern links to wealth and success.

Otherwise, any gods you worship and have a relationship to could be approached about being Netjeru of your household and home, too.

Hope that helps!

I completely second Shefyt's recommendations. Wilkinson's books are awesome. :D

I might recommend Wepwawet for a general boost of way-opening, in the sense of seeing a way to keeping your car (or acquiring another one affordably and quickly if that's necessary).

I second the recommendation of Ptah in terms of making a creation functional and worthwhile, too. Heru-wer is a good Name to approach if you need help with money.

Before I'd invoke Netjeru, however, I'd call upon my akhu if I were in your shoes. They've got quite a punch, and I think humans understand the need for sufficient transportation a little better than Unseen-boat-using deities. :)

Ma'en and Sageling, you have stirred up some absolutely fascinating thoughts and materials. :D

Quote from: Maen

I would ascribe some importance to the fact that the primordial Gods were always depicted as 8 seperate figures.
In a syncretism, two names share one form. In the Ogdoad, two forms share one name.
. . .
If we assume that the Name always predates the Form (you have to name something to give it a definite form and existence), then Syncretism is a joining of two preexisting Names.
The Odgoad is more of a splitting: Splitting one Name into two different Forms.

I think this is my favorite takeaway - that the original Name could have been genderless/all-gendered and had to be rendered in the only way ancient Egyptians could depict Them in art and name: with both male and female forms/suffixes. Those who prefer interacting with one part of the Name or the other, based on gender, can; those of us who might like the original can reach past the split and perhaps tap into that non-binary Name.

Absolutely fantastic. :D
