Day 2 How Did I first come to Know Set

I first  heard about Set in 9th grade.  My class was learning about Ancient Egypt and I got hooked. When I read about gods no one stood out until years later.  I was “Kindling The Celtic Spirit.”  and was reading about St Patrick’s Shield(I think). It was a spell/poem for protection and decided to try it while I purify the house.

For some reason I felt pulled to Set.  I replaced St.Patrick with Set and went around my house with Dragon’s Blood.(It was all I had at the time and is not recommended for purification) I could felt a positive change in the atmosphere that lasted for some time.

It wasn’t until later I found out Set fights Apep(Apophis)(The serpent who wants to return everything to darkness) every night so Ra can be reborn.

 

Day one of 30 days devoted to Set.

This is a general intro of Set.

He is brother to Osiris, Isis, Nephthys, and sometimes Horus the Elder. He is married to Nephthys and is, in some traditions, father if Thoth by Horus the younger.  His parents are Geb and Nut, who are the children of Shu and Tefnut were created by either Atum and Iusaaset or just Atum.

At some point he murdered Osiris by suffocation and then, after Osiris was resurrected by Isis, he tore his brother to pieces. After which Osiris became Pharaoh of the dead.

Later he fought and was defeated by Horus the younger.  He then became guardian of Ra against Apep.  He was also reconciled with Horus the younger.set-svg

 

Topics for devotional writing

I’m going to try this

Devotee of Hermes

The following are 30 topics for 30 days of devotional writing. They are taken from a website dedicated to Hekate, but are generic enough to fit any deity, so I am dedicating January to writing about Hermes and will cover Hekate in March. Feel free to copy these questions for your own devotional writing. Even Christians can do this.
