Nebet Het Festivals in September   Leave a comment

2nd Akhet/Paopi/September

3-Feast of Weret Hekau
11-Words Spoken by the Mistress of the Uraeus
13-Offering Sacrifice to Nebet Het and Wesir


Feast of Weret Hekau

Nebet Het has the epithet Weret Hekau (Great of Magic or Magician). Celebrate Her as a goddess of magic today.


Words Spoken by the Mistress of the Uraeus

The Uraeus is the coiled cobra goddess who is a symbol of a fiery goddess of protection and an Eye of Ra. Honor Nebet Het as an Eye of Ra. Offer candles to the Lady of Flame.


Offering Sacrifice to Nebet Het and Wesir

This festival is on the 13th of Boedromion (mid-September) which is why on the Egyptian calendar I put it on 2nd Akhet Day 13 (2nd Akhet is September in my calendar). During this festival, They were offered milk, water, honey (mixed with the water or could be mixed with the milk too), fruit and cockerel (today, we could offer other meats such as chicken or beef). You could also offer barely or wheat to purify the space within Greek religious practice or you could offer bread or pasta as an offering instead or in addition to that.

Here are some suggestions on how to honor Aset on these festivals. Please feel free to use them or discard them as you see fit. If you have any suggestions of your own, please add them in the comments.


3-Feast of Weret Hekau

This is a festival celebrating Aset as the Weret Hekau (Great of Magic or Magician). Honor Her today with magic, being mindful of your speech (for words are heka) and making offerings.

6-Feast of Aset and Festival of Aset, the Great, Lady of the Two Lands

Since this is a double whammy, you can cook a feast or a meal for the goddess. Offer Her your meals today for the Feast of Aset. Celebrate Aset as Lady of the Two Lands today. The “Two Lands” is another name for Egypt.


6-Aset places the Amulet upon Herself for She is Pregnant with Heru-sa-Aset

Aset is both a midwife and a mother. Offer to Her today as the goddess who will give birth to her son and who who protects Her unborn child. She also protects pregnant women. Donate time or money to doulas, hospitals or maternity wards. Give stuffed hippos (for Aset as Aset, the Hippopotamus) to pregnant women for protection and blessings of the Goddess.


15-Feast of Aset

Cook a meal or offer Her meals today.


20-23-Festival of Aset (Greek/Roman)

Herodotus mentions this festival as a cleansing festival where the temples and statues were washed and cleaned. Clean your shrines and/or homes today.
