Deities for the New Year?
« on: January 01, 2014, 09:52:05 pm »
Em hotep!

Obviously, January 1st isn't the start of the Kemetic new year, but since it's the start of the new year in the culture I live in, I find that it still resonates with me.

Are there any specific deities you pray to at the start of a new year?

Since every single morning is, in a way, a rebirth  of the world, I see no problem with choosing the civil New Year's celebration as an opportunity to pray for a fresh start and good beginning.

I would say that you can turn to any Name connected with Zep Tepi and creation. Ra, Atum, Kheperi, Nit, Ptah etc.

Or you can make it more personal. Try to find what is important to you: anything you would like to give thanks for, any new projects, or anything you would like to ward off or be protected from in the coming year.
Then see which Names of Netjer are appropriate to address for those matters, make offerings to Them and ask for support.

In the Ancient Egyptian Prayerbook, there's a New Year's prayer to Sekhmet-Bast-Mut.

I also see beginnings as a time for Wepwawet.
