Cosmology and Practice

Apologies for the radio silence of late. I’ve been working, and I’ve been sick, and I haven’t had enough mental energy to think of anything substantial to update about. I do have some things I do need to post about, but they’re not quite ready yet. In the meantime, this is a post about cosmology […]

Sobek and Wesir

Yeah, I know, I haven’t posted enough tonight, but I have Thinky Thoughts I kind of want to play with, just to see if they go anywhere. Mostly from reading Sobek’s henadology entry, but also related to other various things. Sobek’s role in the Duat is one I am still getting a handle on, because […]

Sobek Research and Other Ramblings

I was doing a bit of googling last night, looking for any ancient Sobek hymns that might possibly if I’m lucky actually exist that I can base a litany around. I didn’t find any hymns, but I did find a couple of articles that talked about His Graeco-Roman cult, particularly around the Faiyyum region, as […]

Musings on Wesir-Ra

Wesir has been on my mind a lot lately. Ra was around for a few months late last year, but it’s shifted back to Wesir. I hesitate to say it definitely shifted at the Solstice, but I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s when it happened. If I’d been more organised/less busy with everything else, I […]

Sobek’s Parentage and the Nine Elements

Not a PBP post right now, that’s coming later on in the day, but a post on something related to my Nine Elements post from last week. And Sobek. And my creation mythos. Because, see, Henadology’s page on Sobek talks about the only name for Sobek’s father that exists: Senuy, the two brothers. Nit, of […]

N is for Nine Elements

This week’s topic is a bit of a weird one, but I don’t particularly talk about this system very often, so perhaps it’s not a bad time to revisit it. I still don’t know if there are any other existing systems of nine elements around. I haven’t managed to find one yet, but I never […]

M is for Mabon

Late post is late because this week has been frikkin’ ridiculous. But at least I have the time to write now. This week’s post is about Mabon, and is the last of the Sabbat posts for now. Don’t ask me about next week though; I have three thousand ideas and no inspiration for any of […]

L is for Lammas

Strap yourselves in, kids, because this is the first of three posts about Sabbats. Because I wanted to do a PBP post on each of the sabbats, and that conveniently takes up Lammas, Litha, and Mabon, so it’ll be a pretty easy ride for the moment. So, this week is Lammas, the first of the […]

Adorations for the Gods

I’ve added a new page for Adorations. I’ve currently got six sets up there, and I’m planning a few more. I’m planning to use them for my prayer beads, for something to start with when doing contemplative/meditative work. Feel free to use them yourself, or mod them up to suit your own needs. I’ve currently […]

H is for Heru-sa-Aset and Harpocrates

This week, I’m going to discuss Heru-sa-Aset and Harpocrates, for no real reason other than I want to talk about Herus. I don’t think there’ll be much repetition from the Celestial Twins entry, but apologies in advance if there is. Before I was divined in mid-2006, I had perhaps only one encounter with a Heru. […]
