Does anyone know of any traditional or modern rituals for Geb?

em hotep Akins,

I'm afraid that I know of no ritual that was made specifically for Geb. You can honour Him in the 'usual' way, though, with prayers and offerings.

What I believe is interesting to note is His connection to Kingship.
We tend to define Geb as the God of earth today, and this is entirely correct, but we should not reduce Him to this role only.

One of His most important titles is Iry-Pat, usually translated as "hereditary prince". As the son of Shu and father of Wesir He's an important link in the divine line of Kingship that was eventually awarded to the mortal Niusut (That's the plural to Nisut, I looked it up in the Erman/Grapow). He guarantees stability and thus the uphold of Ma'at.

Here's a nice text that might give you some ideas on how to approach Him: http://henadology.wordpress.com/theology/netjeru/geb/

I hope this helps!

I like the bits about his voice, too, it fits in well with modern environmental focuses/rhetoric, e.g. "listen to the voice of the Earth" and the catastrophe it would be if it goes/gets silenced.  

Maybe you can do something with/around that concept. :)
