[PUBLIC] FAQ: RPD (Rite of Parent Divination) / Re: Just had my RPD

Nekhtet and Congratulations!

Wow!  Khonsu and Bast-as-Wadjet!  That's amazing!

Wepwawet is associated with the constellation Orion,  at least according to an inscription from the Temple  of Philae. 

I love the idea of the star Jackal.  It also makes me  think of the primordial god, Wepwawet-Ra.

For epithets of Bast, I really like "She with the Powerful Heart" and "Golden One" (LAGG).

Okay.  Thanks for clearing that up. 

The goddess of the arts and creativity is mostly Hethert as the goddess of creation, love, joy etc. 

I personally see Aset as She is my "Hethert" in my personal practice.  I have Aset Amenti and She is big and complex with so many intersections with Nut,  Nebet Het and  Hethert as the Celestial Cow, Tree  Goddess  and Lady of the West. 

For other ones:
Ptah--God of Creation  and Craftsmen, Sculpting
Khnum--God of Potters 
Aset, Nebet Het, Nit and Tayet--weaving (although mostly clothing for  gods and the dead)
Seshat and Djehuty--Writing
Aset, Nebet Het and Hethert--creative personal experience

As for Sekhmet, I would see Her as helping nourish passion within creating art, but maybe that's more Hethert, ymmv.  Sekhmet does have an aspect as the Celestial Cow, (which is  the Heavenly Cow/Creator/Mother of Ra/Lady of the Stars and  Ancestors). 

Um...I wanted to point out something.  Anthropomorphic is human form or human characteristics (physical).  If you mean full animal form, that term is zoomorphic. 

I don't know if there is a term for animal headed human. 

This is really late, but I'm glad you found it useful!

Shield with Mom?  Nope, she isn't the warrior type.  #1 reason why I don't like that piece. And that would explain why I didn't ever like it Bezenwepwy

I just wanted to note a few things about Aset. 

Aset is an Eye of Ra.  She is a lioness, a cobra and a leopard/panther.  She slays enemies with flame and magic. Every night She and Set slay the Serpent Enemy of the Gods (she uses magic, he uses a spear). 

She is shown with a scimitar at the Temple of Philae.  She has some epithets "Mistress of Battle", "Lady of the Saber/Sword" and "Who saves everyone she loves on the Battlefield".  She slays the enemies of Ra, Wesir and Heru.  She slays other enemies (comrades of Set) with magic, flame and knives within the Ptolemaic Jumilhac Papyrus. 

 In the LAGG, some weapons  are  listed for her:  bow and arrow, harpoon  and knives.  And at Philae, a sword. 

She's not a warrior or soldier like Sekhmet or Heru Wer. She normally uses magic and flame when destroying enemies, but she does have a protective, warrior-like nature. 

As for the statue, I wasn't sold on it either.  Until I read  this post by Sobekemiti:

I found in the Lexikon (LAGG, Band 1), a syncretism of Aset-Wadjet. 

I don't have any experiences with Her personally.

Although Bast and Sekhmet are worshiped in different places, is there a "Sekhmet-Bast?"

Yes. There is a deity Sekhmet-Bast.  Some hymns are specifically to her from Dendera and one in the BOD translated by Margaret Murray in her book Ancient Religious Poetry.

Yinepu's parents as a pair are:
Nebet Het and Ra
Nebet Het and Set (is possible, but only one source alludes to it)
Nebet Het and Wesir (from Plutarch)
Aset and Wesir (from Greco-Roman period)
Isis and Serapis (from Greco-Roman period esp. outside of Egypt)

Bast and Hesat are listed as the possible Mothers, but I don't recall the Father being mentioned with  either one. 

And in Nubia, Yinepu was the consort of Nebet Het. 

I've commissioned a few small pieces from Saryt. 
I can't seem to find the link to her Etsy shop at  the moment.

Yinepu's Parents can be
Bast, Nebet Het and Ra, 
Nebet Het and Wesir (from Plutarch), Aset and Wesir (from later periods) and Hesat. 

Nebet Het and Set may be his parents, but I've only found one mention of it and it is only through context clues.  It doesn't say his name.  If anyone has seen any mention of it in ancient sources,  please let me  know.  (Of course, there is Nebet Het is the biological mother, while Set is the step-father too and Yinepu is their son that way).

Em hotep TahekerutAset!

Oh wow, I had no idea!  I would love to learn more about that, so I will be keeping my eyes peeled!


I found it in Barbara Lesko's book The Great Goddesses of Egypt.  I highly recommend it if you haven't read it.  It has an entire chapter on Nit. (And also chapters on Mut, Nut,  Aset, and Hethert)
