I'd like to see someone like Serquet or Sekhmet have their year. 

Em hotep Meres!

I love Mom to death, but after this year I'd really like not to have a Serqet year. (Unless I get to get away with all the stuff because I'm one of her kids. *glances at Mom* But knowing her and her expectations of me as her child, it might be extra pointy.) Mom's year would be similar to a Set year because she's all about survival and healing. It's not comfortable survival or healing, but it's necessary in that form.

Sekhmet could be a nice year; I think it would be very healing and very much about appropriate action. Possibly similar to Aset's year. A Sekhmet year would be nice I think.

Note: I don't necessarily think the God of the Year has to do with what happens in the year; more that it denotes the challenges and trials we will face in the year. Which is why while I'd love a year of Serqet, I wouldn't relish those challenges and trials.

Em Hotep, Ra'awyserqet.

I think the opposite. I think that a year of Serqet would be good, without many challenges(maybe have more challenges for us, Her children! We know! ;) ) and a Sekhmet year would be hard. Because of their personality and energy. But... Who knows?!  ;D



I think I'm in the same place as Ra'awy on this one! Serqet is a challenger, much more so than my other Mother; my experience has been that She has high expectations of Her followers. I would expect her year to be anything but relaxing.

More specifically, due to Her role as remover of poisons, I would expect Her year to be one that focuses on the eradication of toxic influences on our lives. It's something I think about a lot, as for the past few years I have definitely been focused on removing toxic people and influences from my life. It's a necessary process, and one that has been hugely beneficial for me in the long term, but it's also painful and upsetting. I'd expect a Serqet year to contain that same duality: beneficial in the long-term, but painful and upsetting in the moment.

People who have different relationships with Her might experience such a year very differently, of course! But knowing the role She tends to play in my life, I would not be expecting Her year to be a serene one for me.

ETA: Actually, while I'm thinking about my Mothers... a Hethert-Nut year would be ideal for me right now, I think. I could use some of that big-picture cosmic energy!

Hi Ha'aut,

So, thinking this way, I agree with you and Ra'awy. Maybe a Serqet year, for people who are not accustomed with quickly and needed changes, could be a little uncomfortable, at least at first. =)

Personally I'd love a Bast or Tefnut year.  We do need a clearing out the crud year for the world at large, so Nit or the Bawy might show up.

As ever, I will simply hope for a Bast year.

If it's a Set year, I'm stocking up on the red wine. A lot of red wine. Maybe even Set would get some in offerings.

A year of growth with Wesir would be just fine with me.

I don't really have a guess, though.
