Communing with the Full Moon and a Very Special Baboon

January 8, 2023

  Last night, I communed with the full moon and a very special baboon, (that would be Thoth, or Djehuty of course, in none other than his baboon form). The full moon rose between branches of Australian native paperbarks outside my window, and I was so incredibly grateful that I was able to be there to witness it and be part of it. I had worked on Christmas…

A Simple Summer Solstice

December 21, 2022

  It may seem abstract to those residing in the Northern Hemisphere that here in the Southern half of the planet, December 21st (or 22nd – 23rd) marks the Summer Solstice. I kinda look at our summer solstice like this, since I just finished watching Wednesday on Netflix and have become partially influenced by Jenna Ortega: while the normies are up there celebrating the birth of light in…

Introducing Kemetic Blog’s New Facebook Page

December 18, 2022

    A Facebook Page for Kemetic Blog was long overdue. Here it is, finally! Believe it or not, I don’t find it particularly easy to toot my own horn. As a blogger, you’re already putting yourself out there and only doing yourself a disservice if you have no social media presence. I was on Twitter for a while, but I’m not updating that account at the moment.…

Have yourself a Kemetic Christmas: Making mainstream holidays work for you as a Kemetic practitioner

December 14, 2022

  This is my third Christmas as a Kemetic. While not a vastly long time, it’s been long enough for me to learn a thing or two about how I want to celebrate the holiday season. Rather than abandoning the mainstream, I’ve opted to create my own Kemetic Christmas holiday. Each year, I experiment with different ways of adapting themes and concepts from ancient Egyptian religion and introducing…

The Claw of Sekhmet

November 24, 2022

  The Claw of Sekhmet is a personal ritual tool I’d like to share with readers this Thanksgiving, as an example of how to use your own intuitive abilities and investigative skills when searching for ritual tools, and other sacred objects to include in your practice.  When you feel the need to start searching for the right tools to have in your magical arsenal, know these tools are…

A/pop/his, the Evil One: An Encounter with the Ancient Egyptian Devil

October 31, 2022

  My encounter with A/pop/his, the Evil One, or A/pep occurred thirteen years ago. A convenient time frame for the Halloween season, I know. This is the first time I’ve ever felt ready to share it. Known as the Eater of Souls in ancient Egypt, A/pop/his, the Evil One is said to have fought and lost battles against Ra, the sun god, in an attempt to disrupt and…

Kemetic Spirituality for Beginners: How to Get Started in Egyptian Neo-Paganism – Part 4 of 4

September 30, 2022

  Heka — or ancient Egyptian magic — goes hand in hand with Kemetic spirituality. In fact, it’s hard to separate one from the other. Perhaps that’s because the ancient Egyptians lived in a world infused with magic.  In this fourth and final instalment of Kemetic Spirituality for Beginners, I’d like to demystify the mystical as much as possible, just as my teachers once did for me. The…

An Acknowledgement of African Origin in Kemetic Practice

August 30, 2022

  The author of Kemetic Blog acknowledges and respects the African ancestral origin of ancient Egypt, and recognises the practice of Kemetic paganism as a modern reflection of Traditional African Religion. The above acknowledgement of African origin is inspired by Australia’s Acknowledgement of Country which honours Aboriginal Australians as the traditional owners of the land upon which all Australians live, work and learn. We declare this acknowledgement at…

Making a Kemetic New Year’s Resolution

August 22, 2022

  After Wep Ronpet this year, I decided to make my first Kemetic New Year’s resolution. The origin of New Year’s resolutions are not credited to the ancient Egyptians but to the Babylonians and later, the Romans. It may be reasonable to infer that people in ancient Egypt had plenty of down-time to reflect on the previous year, while most of their kingdom was flooded by the annual…

Book Review of Temple of the Cosmos: The Ancient Egyptian Experience of the Sacred by Jeremy Naydler — Part One

August 2, 2022

  Temple of the Cosmos by Jeremy Naydler often comes highly recommended by experienced Kemetics as a great book for newbies to get a grasp on the Ancient Egyptian mindset, worldview and indeed, cosmology. This book, however is not unmet with controversy and at times, even violent displays of opposition. The above statement alone should prompt readers to seek their own copies of Temple of the Cosmos to…
