The Mystery, Majesty, and Moral Ambivalence of the Great God Set

A thoughtful blog from Amor et Mortem about honoring the God Set.

amor et mortem

According to the way I reckon the old Cairo Calendar, today is the Third of the Five Epagomenal Days, sacred days set aside as certain Gods’ (the Children of Geb and Nut) birthdays during the liminal period of the old year ending but the new year (Wep Ronpet) not having yet begun. (The New Year in ancient Egypt was calculated by the heliacal rising of the star Sirius, which usually takes place between what we know now as August 1-3.) Day Three of the Epagomenal Days commemorates the birth of my most cherished Kemetic Holy Power: red-hot, ultra-dynamic, take-no-bullshit SET!

  2. It doesn’t happen often but, when a deity visits me in a dream, I can feel the difference between mundane dreams and Their divine prescence. Sutekh recently came to me (only 14 years after His first visit) but was blue, rather than red. I later learned that blue is often associated with His epithet “Lord of Heaven”. Due Sutekh!

  4. I won’t lie, Set frightens me. A lot. I’m predominantly Heathen, but He’s been popping up in my thoughts lately. Seeing this posted here has me thinking I may need to get over my timidity and seek Him out. I have no idea what He may want with me, but I know not to ignore the Holy Powers when They desire our attention. Please wish me luck. Dua Set!
