Solstice Inspiration

  Today on Summer Solstice we celebrate the Wandering Goddess! As part of this celebration I set out offerings to her, Sekhmet in my case, and lit incense for her. I was inspired to write a bit in celebration of today that can be used throughout the year for whenever you need it. The basis … More Solstice Inspiration

Fertility Heka

Today is Chewing Cucumbers for Sekhmet. This is a festival that relates to Sekhmet being cooled by the cucumbers, associated with Min, which is connected with fertility. This festival is occurring during the Beautiful Reunion celebration where Heru-wer reunites with Hethert. All in all a good time to do some fertility (read also: prosperity) heka. … More Fertility Heka

Flower Power

There are times when you are reading or looking something up when you realize your life has connected you to the original culture of your gods. You see them in the things you do everyday, even in the most mundane of circumstances. And that is what I have been experiencing for the past couple of … More Flower Power

My Wandering Goddess

The Wandering Goddess will be turning back toward the north soon. The solstices are important holidays for me personally, I think because I connect Sekhmet with the myth of the Wandering Goddess. Although she is not usually the one portrayed in that role. Still it resonates with who she is for me.     I … More My Wandering Goddess

Spread of Stars

In the past I have made no effort in keeping the fact that my Sekhmet is a Star Lion god. My personal god is a cosmic form of Sekhmet that, I thought, no one really got but me. In the past couple years I talked about her, created art for her, and blogged about her. … More Spread of Stars

Nebetuu

For a few years now I have been researching Sekhmet and the many other gods that connect or aspect with her. While her most popular myth is about the destruction of mankind I find that the story of the wandering goddess resonates with me much more strongly. So whenever I take the time to reflect … More Nebetuu
