Beyond Beginner Wicca. Anubis. Anubis (/əˈnuːbəs/ or /əˈnjuːbəs/;[2] Ancient Greek: Ἄνουβις) is the Greek name[3] for a jackal-headed god associated with mummification and the afterlife in ancient Egyptian religion.


According to the Akkadian transcription in the Amarna letters, Anubis' name was vocalized in Egyptian as Anapa.[4] The oldest known mention of Anubis is in the Old Kingdom pyramid texts, where he is associated with the burial of the pharaoh.[5] At this time, Anubis was the most important god of the dead but he was replaced during the Middle Kingdom by Osiris.[6] He takes names in connection with his funerary role, such as He who is upon his mountain, which underscores his importance as a protector of the deceased and their tombs, and the title He who is in the place of embalming, associating him with the process of mummification.[5] Like many ancient Egyptian deities, Anubis assumes different roles in various contexts.

Portrayal[edit] Embalmer[edit] Perceptions outside Egypt[edit] Anput. Anput is a goddess in ancient Egyptian religion.


Her name is also rendered Input, Inpewt and Yineput.[1] Her name is written in hieroglyphs as inpwt.[2] Mythology[edit] References[edit] Kebechet. In Egyptian mythology, Kebechet (spelt in hieroglyphs as Qeb-Hwt, and also transliterated as Khebhut, Kebehut, Qébéhout, and Kabehchet) is a goddess, a deification of embalming liquid.


Her name means cooling water.[2] Myths[edit] Kebechet is a daughter of Anubis.[3] Kebechet was thought to give water to the spirits of the dead while they waited for the mummification process to be complete. She was probably related to mummification where she would fortify the body against corruption, so it would stay fresh for reanimation by the deceased's ka. Kebechet was depicted as a snake. - Your Guide To The Gods. Mythology with a twist! Gaia Consort - Music for the Freethinking Mystic in all of us!

The Sabbats - Beltane

Beltane also marks the midpoint of the Sun’s progress between the vernal equinox and the Summer Solstice. Beltane is also known as “Roodmas” or “Walpurgis Night”, and symbolizes the start of Spring, one of the most important festivals of the Wiccan year. This is the time of year when crops begin to grow, when animals bear their young, and when people came out of houses after being cooped up during the long dark months of winter.

By Lilith Veritas It's never been easy to be a pagan in a world where differences are feared and minorities are persecuted. It's made even tougher by how little nonpagans usually know about the realities of our lifestyle and beliefs.

How many times have you had to explain that Satanism is not Wicca, or that Wiccans are not the only pagans? Most nonpagans get their information about Wicca, neo-paganism and other Craft-related beliefs from the mass media, which has faithfully clung to stereotypes and painted a sensationalistic picture of pagans, just like they do about everything else. TV shows like and have contributed much to making paganism seem less frightening and more acceptable to the mainstream, but they've also continued to support misinformation and superstitions that have plagued pagans throughout modern times. And prejudice, and acknowledging our own history is the only way to move forward to a (hopefully) enlightened future. Some other sources: , by Rosemary Ellen Guiley.
