Three headed canine deity?
« on: August 18, 2014, 10:01:49 pm »
The other night I had a dream with a man in a zoot suit who also had three jackel heads, at least I think jackel. Days before this I prayed to learn more about Wepwawet, so I was wondering if this might have been Him in my dream. I did not feel any danger from this being but very safe and as though his presence was a message in it's own right.

The only deity I know of that's actually ever been shown with three heads in Egyptian iconography is Ash.  He does have an association with canines - the sha, or Set Animal.  Other than this, I do not know of any other iconography or such...  It could be purely personal.

Not triple-headed, but the jackal-headed Souls of Nekhen are often shown in groups of three as are the Spirits of the West. In Egyptian iconography, three of anything represents plurality and is used to indicate 'three or more', in other words a group of entities instead of individuals.

There are also close connections between Anubis, Khentyamentiu/Osiris, and Wepwawet. That would give you three jackals as well.

I saw a wolf calendar today that let me know for sure it was wolf heads. I never saw detailed photos of wolfs other than the grey wolf., and when i saw the pics today I was very surprised and took it as a comfirmation.

I usually associate the black wolf with Yinepu and creatures I term  'hounds of the underworld'. It's a very upg thing and sounds somewhat  like Spirits if the West.

Probably stating the obvious, but are you sure the figure was Kemetic?  Cerberus is exactly a three-headed canine.

This being had a man's body. Wierd I know. I plan on leaving Wepwawet an offering and ask if it was him or who it was.  Any suggestions to what things wepwawet would like?

Beef jerky goes down very well. It's my go to offering for him actually. Rich, oily flatbread also if you want to be fancy. You can never go wrong with water or milk as a liquid offering (or combined in a cup of English tea. ;) ) If you're okay with alcohol, beer/ale/cider is good as is pretty much any hard liquor. If you want to appeal to his sweet tooth, try almond-flavored desserts.

The few times I have dreamt of Wepwawet, He's been blatantly obvious to me. Jackal head, human body.

He always shows up in a fully human form in mine. (He does have such a form as part of his AE iconography.) And as for signs, well... Signs are signs. They're the sort of thing best discovered/noticed in their own time and then interpreted afterwards, IMO.
