I didn't realize she was home already.

Apparently the info comes from a book called "Hermetic Magic: The Postmodern Papyrus of Abaris"

I hope that helps

May I ask where you got this?  I'm curious and I would like to look into it myself.  

At first glance, it sounds like the Greek Black Robed worshipers of Isis (I can't remember the name for them, but I'm pretty sure it starts with a M) who mourned for Wesir.  

In my UPG, Aset-Sopdet is more about foresight and foretelling the year based on the fact that when the star appears the year begins.  This also aligns the sacred time with festivals and the natural cycles of nature (our time, I guess).  YMMV


I'll have to ask her, where the info comes from as soon as shes back from her honeymoon :D

I have a friend who's very into...well we'll just call it "the occult" for lack of a better term. Apparently the veil of Isis refers to a black cloth used to cover an icon of the Goddess. So, I guess I own a veil... as my icon of Aset is covered with a black linen cloth. Apparently, it is used as a ritual tool. (which is used to gain clarity, for scrying, and other such rituals of "sight") Makes sense to me, as we have her Oracle each year, she'd be the one to go to for sight or maybe foresight?

Very very cool birds....

we have lots of them here, mostly red tail and shoulder
though we also have quite a few other raptor visitors including Coopers and Peregrines. I quite like the Osprey...its an awesome bird. Not to mention all the other such birds, like the couple of kite varieties and oh the vultures and owls!

Though, I would add...It may be Heru...It may be another raptor name attempting to grab your attention :D  Heru's not the only hawk in the skies

Apparently Walt Disney was scared of witches and anything occult or Pagan (I remember reading it once but unfortunately I don't have any sources). It is unlikely that they have these parallels on purpose


For a man that was afraid of the occult ... he made an awful lot of movies about it. Just about every Disney movie has some sort of "magic". ...and talk about pagan...Have you ever seen The Black Cauldron? That has to be just about as pagan as Disney can get....well besides turning Beethoven's pastoral symphony into a bacchanalia.

I always thought the Lion King was very very "kemetic" :)

Montu and Khnum are rare ones.

Montu has a son, who is no longer with the house and a beloved.

Khnum has a few beloveds, but no children as I understand

There is also Montu-Ra

on another note...there is also Amun-Montu.  Amun takes over Montu in later periods...which leads me to believe that Amun-Ra could simultaneously be Amun-Ra and Amun-Montu-Ra... I think I made that confusing enough LOL

He's very calm force- but He is a force.  He's primal, but more like a 'huge calm lake that's been here since the dawn of time' than anything else, if that makes sense.
 


Much more eloquently put...and exactly what I meant :)

Specifically Khnums animal theophany is said to be that of an extinct breed known as Ovis longipes palaeo aegypticus. Ovis is the genus for sheep...so I suppose that makes His ram a sheep ram. Though in all honesty, He doesn't seem to mind either one. Myself being a capricorn I have sort of an affinity for the goat. I have goats in my shrine for Him.

Hotep Satsenu,

I <3 Khnum! I need a bumper sticker that says that :)

He is more than just creation and fertility. He is the guardian/father/source of the Nile. He is closely associated with water and the innundation.

Khnums horns are horizontal and supposed to be from a specific ram (which is the first domesticated in Egypt) I can see where one would interpret bull and I can't see anything wrong with that. Aside from the traditional horns, I associated deer horns with Him...not really sure why...they just seem right. Bull horns are out for me...but that may be because Dad claims them and curvy down horns are all Amun-Ra (though sometimes I think antelope or springbok)

I added my two cents to that thread on offerings to Him... so I'll skip answering that here. I will add that as far as textures... grass, dirt, bark, water, stones, rocks.. he seems to have a preference for natural things. Scents... cedar, cypress, pine.

As far as UPG goes... I don't get Him as a Ra sync. I "get" Him as a primal force, very old, and raw but entirely controlled, calm, peaceful, deep, curious,... I wish I was better at describing what I mean...

The best way to get to know Him is just to talk to Him. Maybe do something creative and offer the act to Him.

I hope that helps...

Taweret....

You know how they say never go near a bear cub? because when the mama finds out...she doesn't even care if your not hurting her cubs your getting hurt.....bad

Its sort of a love/hate thing. She being associated with child-birth and children is someone I pray to for all the children in my life...and at the same time.. I resent her...well not anymore...but I did at one point because I can't have kids...and this lead to some guilt..which makes me scared that she will find out that I felt that way once and be mad... real angry momma bear mad.

Also... having come to terms with my non-parent status... and knowing now that it is exactly what I want. The whole pregnancy/child/mother thing is something I used to dream about ....and now the idea is a nightmare. I love kids and I have more kids in my life than I know what to do with....but the idea of having my own scares me...alot

Well, for me it has always started with a feeling of attraction to the god or something he or she is associated with, like an animal.  

For example, one time I was looking through a website selling statuary and Egyptian-themed house decor.  There was a statue of Khnum holding a shield and spear.  I felt really drawn to it and put it on my mental list of things to buy when I  get some money.  I thought nothing else of it until a while later, three or four months or so, I was reading a book in bed and was suddenly aware of a male entity who radiated calmness and benevolence, and smelled of cool water---like lake or river water.  He started talking about the art supplies under my bed that had laid there untouched for over a year, and said that he wanted me to make arts and crafts for him.  He didn't say his name but I knew who it was.

 


That was sooo Khnum! That statue however... does it look like  this?  if so Hemet has said that isn't Knhum but rather a Netjeri. Thouhg He doesn't seem to mind the statue :)

My design is complete except for these.
