Quote from: Ta_Imu_Aset
Tarot is definitely something that makes Aset "perk up"...or...something, when I do it. I can definitely feel Her there sometimes. Unfortunately, often I have a failure to fully understand the spreads, I've been doing tarot for awhile and I still feel like I struggle, so. But sometimes it's pretty clear that She is totally "talking through the cards".

You can make an offering to Her of the deck, Her own deck, kept in Her name. That's what I did.

I also like this deck:

While it's not really 100% "spot on" as it were, and it's not really a tarot deck, I still really like it.

:)


Hotep!

What an awesome deck!  I love all your ways of connecting Tarot to the Names, working with Aset and the other Names as I use the cards.  Thank you!

Em hotep, Vision..,

One of the recent ways I have begun serving my Mother is by becoming a co-leader for the 4-H County Council.  County Council is a youth leadership program comprised of any interested 4-H member aged 14-19.

In undertaking this responsibility, I am helping to train the youth of my 'Pride' to become strong hunters, providers, and protectors.

Blessings,
Tahai  


Em Hotep!

What a beautiful way to serve.  It is amazing how creative we can be in our service, but it is in serving others there is also so much beauty.

I think each person's relationship with his or her Parents has an individual effect on how that service is done.

Set, for instance, is in my case very much about getting things done -- and done correctly and fully. Service to him is not backing down, not quitting when things are half done, not wimping out, not giving up just because something is hard. It's also, I'm discovering, learning to treat success and failure with equanimity. For me, he's very much like a military drill instructor -- and I mean that in the most positive of ways. He pushes me hard, but I never want to see him disappointed in me. He also may never really praise, but every once in a while I get a glimmer of his satisfaction.

Ra-Heruakhety is a king among gods and also a creator. Serving him, in my case, is doing my best to be a leader through example and to hold myself to high standards. It's also the pursuit of new knowledge and the drive to create things, be they research, fiction, or any host of other concepts. When I do as I'm supposed to do, others flourish, which is as it's supposed to be.

Together, both of those paths make a unified path that is more intense and more powerful. When I'm out of line...well, let's just say the feedback is very rapid. ;) When I'm doing what I'm supposed to do, I may get nothing from them but an occasional nod, so to speak. It's the kind of interaction that works for me, though, and it may not work for everyone. Thus, as I said before, there seem to be different paths for different people.

Personally, I serve my Parents by attempting to live and act in a way that allows others to see and know Them by knowing me.


I like this answer :D


Knowing what it is your Parent(s) want, and what They do for the universe, is also a good thing if you want to help Them do it.

But what several people have found is that asking Them what you should do is fraught with danger.  They don't want to rule you, to micromanage your life, make your decisions for you, take your responsibility and your power.  They have their own :)  They want you to find your place and make your own decisions, and be who you are (as cliched as that might sound).

They want you to.....be who you are.



I agree...sometimes though, it's nice to be reminded of our strengths! :)

I agree with Sobeq and Sesha on this. It doesn't matter if I do senut every day I possibly can, if I am not acting decently and DOING stuff because that would be a very poor representation of Dad. And the rest of my Gods and spirits, for that matter.
