Wep Ronpet, Year 29, and a new Decade

My Senut shrine set up for year 29. The candles on the outer edge next to Heru-sa and Wepwawet are for Anhur-Shu, the God Upon The Year (left) and the Wandering Eye (right).

I had planned to do a post on Wep Ronpet on the 6th, once it had all calmed down, but it hit right at the start of my work days, and so it didn’t happen. And then I kept delaying and got Busy with other things, so I’m only now getting around to it. I don’t think it’s a big problem though, as it’s given me some time to pause and reflect on the Year 29 Aset Oracle, and make some plans for where things are going.

Anhur-Shu is the God over Year 29, and I’ve already had some very cool experiences with Him. He seems very keen to get to know me, and walk with me this year. After all, that’s what the oracle is all about. The Return of the Distant Goddess is very much present this year, and the work that wasn’t done lsat year needs doing this year. We walk with Anhur to find the Wandering Eye and bring Her back. The colours for the year are white and gold, hence the new shrine decorations. I feel it’s as complete as it’s going to get right now, save for the white lion figurine I have coming to represent Anhur-Shu.

Ra has also been around a bit. Aset did say Djehuty and Ra would be around too, and to ask for Their help. I’ve not had any experiences with Ra before, but the first time, it was when He was accompanying me to the shops to get offerings for Wep Ronpet, and He urged me not to take my music like I usually do, but to listen to the sounds of the earth. He would cover my ears for me instead so I didn’t get overwhelmed as He walked behind me.

The Days Upon The Year

We’ve come to that time of the year, the days before Wep Ronpet, where time is and isn’t. I’ve been having odd dreams the past couple of weeks. Not every night, but often enough to take notice of. Nothing Netjer-related though. Just weirdness. Which, tbf, is a step-up from my usual condition of not dreaming at all, or not remembering my dreams when I do. So. That’s a plus, I guess.  It’s nice to be back in the Temple for Wep Ronpet this time around. I’m going to enjoy the virual retreat as much as I can, and celebrating with my family again. <3 I think it’s going to be really fun. 😀 I’ve got some work to do for Wesir’s birthday tonight, and we’ll also get the Aset Oracle presentation tonight as well, so that’s very exciting.

Part of me is like, I should post on each day and Do Something for them, but there’s another part of me that’s also v lazy and thinks that might be better for a reflection post after the new year. So I might do that instead, bc I know I’ll keep up with that committment.

It’s been an interesting year, though a good one, I think, in many respects. I know I’ve done a lot of personal growth, and become more my own person than I was at the start of the year. I’m happy about that. As long as I’m moving forward, I’m happy.

Anyway. I didn’t have much to post today, just wanted to mark the date and we’ll see how my posting goes between now and Wep Ronpet on Aug 5th. 😀

Sekhmet Nesret’s year

The God over the year for this past Kemetic year has been Sekhmet Nesret, which seemed to be appropriate for a plague year tbh. As Wep Ronpet approaches, I’ve been thinking about how far I’ve come, and how many changes have happened in my life since then. More than I initially thought, tbh. Returning to the House of Netjer was a big one, but really just the beginning. Going through the Beginner’s Class again, and relearning this religion again, was a revelation. It’s become clear to me that I just wasn’t ready back when I was first in the House. This past decade of wandering has been leading me to this path again, to returning home. I find it fitting that the oracle card I got in a recent witchy mystery parcel was one that said, All Paths Lead Home (from the Starseed Oracle). That’s very much been my theme for this year ngl.

I burnt out halfway through second semester last year. Partly my fault for not listening to my body when I should have rested. But I persisted anyway. And I think the past six months have been very restorative for me and placed me in a better position to succeed this time around. Especially since I stopped drinking coffee in March after the worst 3 day migraine I’ve ever had. It felt like detoxing, resetting my system, a smol mini-death to change things I didn’t otherwise have the power/motivation/energy to change. I still sort of feel like I’m still processing all of that. My brain definitely took a couple of months to settle and stop worrying that migraines were just around the corner.

I’ve been looking into my health as well, and seeking out a hEDS diagnosis. I’m at the stage now where I just want to know, so I can then plan around it, and work on my joints from there. So I’m working on that. All part of knowing yourself, really, tbh.

Getting my working altar set up properly has also been very productive. I think the migraines were definitely getting in the way of me sensing energy bc I can feel stuff now. It’s not constant, and it’s nothing more than a feeling rn, but it’s definitely something. I’ve been doing some spellwork and figuring out finally what I’ve been wanting my witchcraft to look like. What I want is a Kemetic magical practice with modern witchcraft techniques as well as heka. Something that’s instinctive, but also works. And I’ve never found anyone doing it the way I want to do it, so I’m just doing it myself. I may write up some of my workings on here once they’ve done their job, just to give you an idea of how I’m doing things now.

There’s definitely other things too, I think, but I don’t have the words yet, or can’t share them bc oathbound, but it’s been an interesting year, and I’m hoping for a slightly calmer year to come. I’ll be thinking about this some more as I prepare for Wep Ronpet and may share more of my reflections in the future. But I’m glad I had these changes, bc my life is so different even from back in October. I don’t recognise myself back then, and can’t go back anyway. This is me now, and I’m glad for it. It’s hard burning away what needs to be left behind, but sometimes necessary, and now I can focus on healing and growing and continuing to become.
