shadowstep-of-bast:

The best way to tell if Bast likes you is to just ask Her outright. She’s a very direct Goddess and if She likes you, She’ll tell you. You just have to ask Her.
I dont think Bast is ever NOT interested in gaining followers. If you feel intimidated, just let Her know how you feel. The best way to forge a relationship with Her is to talk to Her directly. Bast understands that it’s going to be a symbiotic relationship. If you need something, tell Her. In return, She’ll give you Her expectations and She’ll help you reach them. She isn’t just going to put some rules in your lap and abandon you— like a mentor, She’ll teach you and stay with you the whole way.
Basically, just communicate with Her. Be direct, cut to the chase, and just ask if She’s interested in getting to know you as a devotee. Chances are, the answer will be yes. Just remember that the answer may not come immediately— She does have Goddess things to do after all, and it might take a day or two for Her to get back to you

Important to note, do actually try and meet those expectations. I broke a promise to her once and the next day my statue of her fell from a place it should not have been able to, and shattered.

She’s still pretty mad at me, so don’t fuck with her. Just be honest if you feel you can’t do something

This morning I had a memo in my brain left from Ra. And he was all grumpy at me “I don’t WANT all of this extra attention! Rawr! D:<”

And I told him he was the worst god ever because all gods want attn and to STFU cuz I do what I want.

And in the background I see Set going “That’s my girl! Pissing off the boss man!!” he was so proud.

Project Bury Ra in Chocolate, folks.

That’s how he always is to me though, he always prefers to be like a background observer and never be involved in anything directly

This is why you should have a cat y’all. Egyptians believed that cats repelled evil spirits.

Cats are evil spirits. They’re just the strongest so all others must bow to their greatness.

Actually according to legend, cats are guardians of the Underworld. So once you are dead if you try to sneak back into the land of the living they send you back where you came from. They protect the living from the dead.

If you ever wonder why a cat stares off into the wild blue yonder and then bolts off for “no reason…”

That cat even looks like it’s accusing him of something like wait a Fucking minute here are you dead did you really think you could slip that shit passed me

I… Mmmmm…. I feel like this is greatly oversimplified but… I can’t be arsed to prove it… Fellow Kemetics, can I leave this one to you guys?

Charles K. Wilkinson’s copy of a painting in Sennedjem’s tomb, showing the god Re, in the form of the Great Tomcat, slicing up the evil serpent Apophis. (via the Met)


The face on ap-p is giving me the weirdest fucking chills, ugh. So creepy.

Sci-fi world building guide talking about organized religion as a piece of a civilization: “the ancient Egyptians built pyramids to the God Osiris”

Ok but…. Erm… At best that’s an oversimplification… At worst it’s a blatant misunderstanding of the function of a pyramid as a tomb.

Like come on.

Didn’t you know? It’s like, an unspoken rule that “some people deserve to be treated like shit” apparently.

Woah, wtf did I miss? New round of tag drama?

Not entirely sure of the details, but yes? I know people who’ve been getting a lot of anons/asks recently saying, basically, “I am afraid to post anything in the tags because I see what happens to other people at solo’s hands” and yet enough people around here don’t see /any problem/ with her techniques for ‘correcting’ people or complaining about things that she’s got support for her whole pattern of behavior. I think the latest was based on hatred of [something] in the pagan tag, or the tag in general, but if you hate what you see in [tag] so much you’re just lashing out, why the fuck keep reading it?

Most recent had to do with an admin of a hellenic 101 blog. Solo expressed discontent with how it is being run, and they got into a spat via PM, solo posted said PM and hell broke loose.

That’s as I understand it, at least.

Yes, you pretty much got it right…

Today I caught myself on a sudden thought (when Tumblr recommended me to follow her again :) — “It’s goot that I’m not hellenic, so I don’t have to deal with Solo anyhow”.
Then I understood that probably it’s something definitely wrong… if she scares away people from the tags and even from the religion itself.
Just my 0.02

WHY DID I HAVE TO COME TO THE RELIGION WITH ALL THE SCARY ASS MOTHERFUCKERS. Kemetics seem so chill. But I love artemis :<

AT LEAST YOU’RE NOT HEATHEN? MAYBE?

#SILVER LINING

You can be an honorary Kemetic hahahahaha. THATS WHY WE HAVE THE FANDOM. We have room for even keel folks within our ranks, even if you’re not interacting with NTRW.

I would like to apply to be an honorary Kemetic but unfortunately your deities don’t seem to like me (I’ve had some pretty bad dreams involving Kemetic deities). Still, the fandom’s way cooler than the shit Heathen-y folks have to deal with.

I remember the time when I followed Solo (around 1 or years ago), honey, the drama made was so intense it made me unfollow all magic and religion blogs for a whole week cause I needed some air to breathe.

Solo is also emotionally manipulative and a complete liar. My baby mama got into a pm fight with her once, and she was at one point telling her that she knew exactly what it was like to self harm (by saying “I used to do x y and z to myself”) and solo then tried to get her mass reported for “telling her tHings she should do to her self and instructing her to self harm”

Which btw in the same conversation solo said “kill yourself” multiple times
