a question about Tefnut
« on: July 22, 2014, 09:30:14 am »
I was wondering if Tefnut is the netjeru of all bodies of water or just moisture such as rain,fog,  dew on the ground, ect...?

She's more about moisture and condensation in general than bodies of water. For Netjeru who are associated with water in a more general way, I'd look into Hapi, Nun, Hatmehyt, Sobek, Anuket, or Satet.

Em Hotep. Thank you for answering my question. I was a little stumped on that one.

On the other hand, Mother's presence can often be intensely felt near bodies of water, especially around sunset and sunrise, as mist often gathers in the air in such situations.

UPG: I also sometimes feel this certain connection between Nun and Tefnut & Shu, especially by the sea, given their shared attunement to the passage of time, beginnings and endings, and the sort of cosmic, abstract quality often connected to them.

That reminds me--about a week ago, I drove with a friend to Chicago early in the morning, when the sun was just starting to rise. There are a lot of ponds along our part of I-75 in NW Ohio, and in that morning light, the tendrils and clouds of mist rising from them were breathtaking. I'm not sure I've ever felt the presence of Ra and Tefnut so strongly as I did in that moment.

From y'alls descriptions I feel I have already meet Her. and I kinda get a grandmotherly feel from Tefnut.

Phoenix, that's Mom and Dad for you! At times such moments are just what I need to remember that my Parents actually do work very well together ;)

I mostly connect with Tefnut in the form of clouds, fog, humidity, moisture collected in the air. But most definitely any time I see clouds, I think of Her. To me it's always cool to think about Tefnut & Shu as the clouds (former) and the wind that moves them (latter). But I would second the assertion that She seems more "moisture" than bodies of water, though I would think She would/could be nearby bodies of water as the potential for moisture in the air is relevant.
