What I Will and Won't Do For You:
I don't cast spells for strangers with circumstances I don't know or don't agree with. However if you give me a request for prayers to be said in your honor or for your circumstances I'd be more than happy to take it before my Deities.
I?am a Kemetic practitioner and revivalist. This means, quite simply, that I study and practice as the ancient people of Kemet did. Kemet, or "the Black Land" or "the Black Soil", is simply the ancient Egyptian word for the land of the Nile; what was Egypt in ancient times. Deshret, or "the Red Land" or "the Red Soil" stands in contrast to what was ancient Egypt, and often formed their borders with other countries.
I am a Shemsu-Ankh within the Kemetic Orthodoxy, and always willing to answer any questions on it that I can. I do reserve the right to refer you to House of Netjer's various links. My Shemsu name is Ra'awyserqet. My name is pronounced Ruh OW wee sair KETT. This is my Shemsu name, the name given to me by my (spiritual) Mother via Hekatawy | (aus). I also recognize Hemet (aus) or Hekatawy (aus) as my Mother and Father. (It's a Nisut thing.) Sat Serqet-Aset her Hekatawy | (aus), meryt Sekhmet-Mut, Yinepu-Wepwawet, Heru-wer, her Hethert-Nut-as-Nehmet-Awai.
I have practiced magic for over a decade now, heka for the last several years although my knowledge of it (and how to perform it properly) is always growing. I generally refer to my "magical" practices as heka now, as I always use at least one concept of heka. The heka I do is aligned with my religious/spiritual affiliations, as in Kemet there was no separation of temple and practice. I am experienced in chaos magic, channeling, sigils, seals, divination?(to varying degrees based on the specific system), invocation, evocation, heka (to a degree), and several other things I've forgotten at the moment. I am currently studying into the ancient Egyptian priesthood and oracles.
When I'm Not Here:
I'm off reading A Song of Fire and Ice, working at a human tissue bank (I make tissue grafts!), knitting scarves and blankets, wearing kick butt outfits that get compliments, going to KO meetups and chats, doing ritual for my Gods, spirits, and ancestors, building my collection of awesome movies, and decorating my home base with things that ibeI collected throughout my life.?
I'm a big supporter of civil rights and social justice, so you might find it normal for me to comment on culture stealing, ahem, I mean cultural appropriation.
