I have only just recently set this shrine up. I bought the base wood plate from TheHeritageTree on Etsy.com; it is a 1/4” thick, 15” long, seasoned piece of Walnut. The Cernnunos statue I gathered from my darling wife (We both prefer the Cernnunos statues over most, if not all, interpretations of Freyr when it comes to statues. Most creators make Freyr to look quite silly). Continue reading →
This is my shrine of Apollon Lykeios that I pray at in my private room upon rising and before bed.
The sculpture I crafted to represent the wolfish Apollon as Lykeios refers both to light and to wolf. This work I intentionally created anthromorphic, which is atypical of Hellenic representation of the gods but I felt appropriate for the nature of Apollon Lykeios. As such this statue represents the destructive/creative nature of Apollon via the bow and the torch, and the serpent entwined around his foot. Around his feet are five candles, as five represents his solar connections as the light-bearing king. Continue reading →
Long before I came to Kemeticism, when I still identified as a Wiccan, my SO concocted a rite to do for Osiris, which he taught to me. I can’t really say where he got the idea from- neither of us really knew much about Kemeticism or its holidays. But the rite seemed to fit, and the more I’ve learned over the years, the more I see the correlation between it and the Mysteries of Osiris. I had written about my rites briefly last year, but this year I’d like to do a full ‘tutorial’ on the rites I perform every year. This is based entirely off of UPG, but I think that this UPG is rather applicable to this holiday. The rite I’ve written out below isn’t exactly the original format- the ritual has grown and changed a little bit over the years that I’ve done it. It’s a growing practice and feel free to modify it to fit your needs as well.
As an eclectic that does not work within established religions/paths, my altar is a constantly changing space. It is a functional work space for magick, offerings, healing, and astral work. Each item has a specific purpose that works in tandem to the intangible side of the work. Most of my items are used more in a symbolic way than as tools. Continue reading →
My path is what I call Graeco-Roman Kemetic paganism, and I practice with a syncretised mix of Kemetic, Roman, and Greek influences and Gods. So I honour Aset and Isis, Sobek and Suchos, Heru-sa-Aset and Harpocrates. If I had room, I’d probably find a space for Serapis as well as Wesir. It’s very much my own path and a work in progress. It is not based on any particular tradition, though I am drawing on some Roman recon groups, as well as what Neos Alexandria is doing with regards to Graeco-Egyptian worship. Continue reading →
(Jade Val is Kemetic Orthodox- here’s a summary page if you’re not familiar with this path or the terms she uses.)
Without being biased this is the best type of shrine to start off at, as a Beginner or Remetj. It contains all the requirements for senut (box/cabinet, white linen, two bowls, candle, incense and natron) with enough room to dedicate the shrine to a Name of Netjer. Continue reading →
When my son was young (I think he was 9 or 10) he started spontaneously building these little houses from found materials around our yard. Each consisted of a circular bed of crushed stone from our driveway and various bits of plant material woven and stacked to form a hollow dome. Continue reading →
