30 Days of Sobek: Day 4 – Myths about Sobek

As far as I’m aware, there are no surviving myths about Sobek, save for the Roman period Book of the Faiyum, which centred around Sobek-Ra and His journey through the sky. It’s very much Sobek-as-Ra in the Faiyum, and it is a fascinating text, from the snippets I’ve read about it. The book is as […]

New stock on Etsy + actually writing books omg

Just a quick update for you to let you know I’ve put some new stock up on Etsy today. It’s a few altar tiles, and a pair of shrine kits. Check them out in the shop, or over at the blog. Let me know if there’s anything you’d like to see go up there, and […]

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 […]

Mysteries of Wesir

It’s been a long weekend, it seems, in terms of rituals. I had rites for Hekate on Friday and Saturday, followed by Samhain/Parentalia on Sunday. Monday marked the beginning of the Mysteries of Wesir for me, and apart from a short rite in shrine, I’ve spent the day hemming altar cloths. I’m trying to keep […]

[Myth] Sobek Writes Of The Birth Of Heru

This is what Sobek’s been chattering to me about all afternoon. I finally got around to writing it. Not quite what I originally had in mind, but it’s still pretty damn good, I think. — Sobek sits in the shade of a large willow tree, the waters of the Nile lapping gently against the banks. […]

End of year musings

It feels like so much has happened between January and now. In some ways, it’s been a really turbulent year, and I feel like I’ve been in an almost perpetual state of chaos. Good chaos, mind; it’s not like nothing productive has come of this period, but it’s still been somewhat stressful to go through […]

T is for Telling Stories

In some ways, I feel this is an odd thing to write about, as it isn’t something I do very often. I’m not just talking about mythology, either. I’m talking about new stories, mythological fanfiction, if you will. Because I feel it’s something I should do, in the sense of making new stories and making […]

An Account of Creation by Sobek and Heru-sa-Aset

A/N: Written for the prompt ‘myth’ for AU bingo round two; and also because Sobek told me to. This is my/His version of creation; it isn’t an authentic Egyptian myth, but it is inspired by them. Creation: An Account of the Creation of the Cosmos by Sobek the Crocodile God, and His Twin/Son Heru-sa-Aset, the […]
