Again, you and me both. That I survived all the shopping, wrapping, cooking, cleaning, prepping, overeating, and stressing for another year astounds me. I'm ready to have my life back.

I know what you guys mean-I still have my parents here for about another 3 weeks, and whilst I love having them here, they have been in my house since the beginning of December. As soon as their furniture arrives back from France (they've been over there for 6 years) they can move into their new flat and I can have my house and routine back. I need my version of normality back! Please?

It seems like it's been awhile since this was asked: what are you working on, religiously? What things are you struggling with, what issues are you facing? What's going really well for you?

Myself, I have a bit of a laundry list of things I'm working on. I'm working out ritual structure for some weekly, some monthly, and some yearly rituals; I'm writing hymns for said rituals (for lack of a better word for "stuff I say during ritual"); I'm preparing for a major altar move and redesign; I've got a book reading project going on my religious blog; and I'm researching for a hands-on religious symbolism project. It seems like a lot, but it's coming together pretty well, especially since my social and working lives are in a state of limbo, and school hasn't restarted yet.

So what's going on for you?

Well, Nehet and I formed "Seshat's Library" as a group effort to make reliable, scholarly articles on relevant Ancient Egyptian practices as a sort of primer for Kemetics without the politics involved with making yet another "temple group."  This is based in TCN and is open to anyone, whether as a writer or beta reader.  We plan to offer this information freely.

Right now I'm working on figuring out how to adapt the Kemetic calendar(s) system to modern use, and it's tough.  I don't even think a lot of Egyptologists are at a consensus yet, but I'm getting close to finding something workable that keeps with the intent of the originals while making it a bit easier for modern devotees.

After this I plan on making an adapted ritual based off of primary and secondary sources, as well as figuring out the logistics of making a mini-temple out of an Altoids tin.  I'm pretty excited about that. Grin

Then I plan on using some of my secondary sources to plan a Kemetic oracle deck based off of the mythos and art of Kemet.  My sister is a traditional Illustration major so she would be doing the art work while I work on the symbolism and card meanings.  I'm even considering pitching the finished project.  It would be nice to have a card deck that is historically accurate rather than a poor mish-mash of Egyptian and Rider-Waite symbolism.  It would also be great to jump start my sis' career.

Then of course there's my big library of books that I plan on tackling with gusto, but one at a time...I'm only one person and I'm also a full time college student, so I don't expect to get anything done right quick.

I'm researching for a hands-on religious symbolism project.

Juni, if you're adding Kemetic symbolism to the mix, I highly recommend "Reading Egyptian Art: A Hieroglyphic Guide to Ancient Egyptian Painting and Sculpture" and "Symbol & Magic in Egyptian Art" by Richard H. Wilkinson, as well as "Arrest and Movement" by H.A. Groenewegen-Frankfort.  I plan on using these for my oracle deck project.

Witch bottles! I've been researching for a while and find them really interesting - so I'm slowly collecting
the bits and pieces I need to make my own. It'll be for protection, and will be an 'altar bottle' - living on my altar absorbing and transforming bad vibes into good ones.

I'm also working through 'Ariadne's Thread' which is a workbook in the goddess tradition by Shekhinah Mountainwater - I'm really enjoying it. Its refreshing to find a book by someone who can translate deep ideas and a lifetime of experience into a journey in book form.
