What do you know about the Zep Tepi? I have very limited knowledge about this time period in ancient Egyptian lore. Every time I have tried to look it up, I have been stymied in my attempts. So, please share the knowledge.  Grin

Zep Tepi is the "First Time" and is the creation of the world, the cosmos, everything that exists.  

Zep Tepi is analogous to the sun's journey across the sky, the rejuvination of the cosmos through ritual among other things and as such is a cyclical time as opposed to linear and is renewable every day as the sun rises and sets.  

If you want to know more about creation I would suggest reading the different creation myths.  Some creator deities are Ra, Atum, Amun-Ra, Sobek-Ra, Ptah, Nit, Mehet Weret (an aspect of Hethert, Nit or Aset), Nefertem, Khnum (as a creator of bodies) and Shu.  

A great book on mythology is: Geraldine Pinch's Egyptian Mythology: A Guide to the Gods, Goddesses and Traditions of Ancient Egypt.

I am the Goddess of Who I can Become. I mix the magic of the sorceress with the blade of a warrior. I walk the liminal pathways to see the face of the Goddess, both terrible and kind. As She stares back at me, I tremble in awe and ecstasy.  --Me
