Ancient Lady of Upper Egypt,
Wearer of the White Crown,
Great White Cow of Nekhb,
Wife of the rolling Nile river,
Vulture Goddess whose outstretched wings
Hover over the royal child,
Protecting him from harm, seeing him safe to adulthood,
Help us to know what it is to eat rot
And turn it again into nourishment,
Cleaning and purifying the earth
With the transmuting power of our bodies.
Lady who protects the rulers, the crowned ones,
Protect those of us
Who must take on responsibility
And whose hands work for the lives of many.
Nourish them with your attention
That they may not burn out like a candle.
Guide them with your wisdom
That they may always remember
The nourishment of their people,
Of the body, the mind, the soul.
Protect the sleeping infant child of our hopes
And goals, and future,
And see it safely to fruition.
Spread your wings over us, O Nekhebet,
And may your watch keep us ever safe.

Chant:
Nekhebet Shen

A Taste of WitchLore for October 27th – The Pentacle By Doreen Valiente

PENTACLE FROM THE LIBER UMBRARUM BY DOREEN VALIENTE

The five-pointed star or pentagram is one of the oldest signs in the world. It represents, among other meaning, magic itself, the dominion of the spirit over the four elements of the material creation.


The Circle which encloses it, being without beginning or ending, represents infinity and eternity. Another meaning of the pentagram is that it bears a rough resemblance to a human figure, as if standing upright with the arms and legs outstretched. Hence the pentagram in a circle is a symbol of the human being in relationship to the Infinite.


The eight armed figure in the center of the pentagram represents the Eight Ritual Occasions of the Witch’s year, four Greater Sabbats and four Lesser Sabbats. The Greater Sabbats are Candlemas, May Eve, Lammas, and Hallowe’en. The Lesser Sabbats are the equinoxes and solstices. The eight of this symbol plus the five of the pentagram makes 13, the traditional number of the Witches coven.


The three X-shaped crosses around the pentagram represent the three annointing of the initiation ceremony, ‘two above and one below’; that is, two above the waist and one below it. The two spirals or S-shapes represent the ancient symbol of the twin serpents, the dual forces of positive and negative, yang and yin, masculine and feminine, that underlie all manifestation.


The symbols on the three upper points of the pentagram are the two crescents of the waxing and waning moons, and the circle of the full moon. Together they represent the primordial Goddess of Nature, often depicted in triple form as Nymph, Mother and Crone, the three phases of the moon.


The symbols on the two lower points of the pentagram represent the two aspects of the ancient God of witches. They are conventionalized drawings of a horned head and a skull and crossed bones. The former sign represents the Horned God of Life and Fertility, and the latter is the God of Death and what lies beyond.

I Wish You and Yours A Very Pleasant & Blessed Weekend!

Good afternoon! It seems like we are apologizing all the time now. I am sorry for not getting on the blog sooner. I was tired and it was Saturday. I forgot that I didn’t have this Saturday off. Old habits are hard to break.

We ask you have patience with us. We will eventually get our act together. We are going to let Lady A try to start doing the daily postings again. “Let,” lol!  She is still weak but get stronger each day.  I know she don’t want to admit it but I think she got out of the hospital too soon. She probably raised hell to be released and they let her go. She doesn’t like to be away from home and her animals. I can’t say I blame her. At first, she would get tired sitting up and have to lay down after so long. The last couple of days, I have seen her strength growing. She wants to get back to the blogs and all of you. We will give her a try next week.  If she gets tired, I will just take over the postings. She is bull-headed and determined to do things her way. The only way to let her know she can’t do something is to let her try.

We love and support her. I guess you could say we sort of carter to her. She is a very special Lady and we feel fortunate to have her as a friend.  I feel fortunate to have her as a sister. We might not be blood but I don’t believe you have to be blood to have a bond such as ours. I am sorry I need to get this information out to you today, don’t I?

I hope everyone has a pleasant and blessed weekend. I promise I will be on time tomorrow.

Anastasia
