FEASTS OF LIGHT: A Year of Ancient Goddesses

I'd like to spend some time with you this year. As we move throughout the months, I’ll introduce you to some of my dear spirit mothers, the goddesses of ancient Egypt, a passion I have had for nearly 3 decades. Egypt, the ancients said, was made in the image of heaven, and the earth was made as a mirror of the Great Mother, who had many aspects. We will explore a different aspect of femaleness and divine symbol each month—sky goddess, water goddess, snake goddess, star goddess, vulture goddess, feline, woman or cow.

Each month we will focus on a different goddess, explore her energies, how they were celebrated in ancient times, and how those energies may be experienced by you individually and by your community. There will be ways to integrate your learning through journal writing and discussion points.

Some of you may be interested in the live online Q&A teleseminar following the online class which will allow us a time to ask questions, share our exploration and resources.

I’ll be using information found in my book Feasts of Light: Celebrations for the Seasons of Life (Quest Books, 1999). Each monthly online study class is 2 hours long. You may sign up for the full year in quarterly installments which includes the teleseminar, or you may decide to choose one or several of the classes. All of these classes are counted as part of your monthly studies if you are working in the Het Seshet Mystery School

Monthly Online Workshop and Teleconference

January 9th: The Brilliant Festival of the Lights of Neith

Celebrate Neith, the wisdom keeper and the great grandmother of all the gods and goddesses. On a dark midwinter’s night her festival invokes the return of the light. Learn divination techniques.

February 13th: The Blessing of the Fleets by Isis

The annual blessing of the fishing fleets in the Mediterranean became the basis of the Mardi Gras Krewe of Isis and the fleet of parade boats in New Orleans. Who knew it was an ancient party for the goddess Isis?

March 13th: The Feast of the Hand of God (Iuaauset)

The breathy vocalized name of the first primordial goddess of ecstasy offers insights into fertile spring planting and farming rituals, the planting of the seeds and the garden of earthly delights.

April 10th: The Great Festival of Bast at Bubastis

Spring time frolicking of the cat goddess is part of the festival that celebrates the body through dancing, feasting, loving relationships, mothering friendships and even some trickster eergies.

May 8th: The Hierogamos of Hathor and Horus

The writing of love poetry, the celebrations of the May Queen, the sacred marriage is all a part of the integration of the masculine and the feminine.  The sensual, loving, beautiful Hathor is everyone's Homecoming Queen.

June 19th: Festivals of Nekhbet and Mut

Because there are only 3 seasons to an ancient Egyptian year, this festival honors the harvest goddess, the vulture goddess Mut. In the harsh climate of Egypt, the vulture combines the energies of devouring the dead and laying the egg of future life. 

July 10th: Opening of the New Year and the Rise of Sothis

The Egyptian new year falls in midsummer celebrating the rise of the star Sirius (Sothis or Isis) in Leo which marked the coming of the Nile’s annual inundation. At this time all time and all life began anew through the rebirth of the 5 sacred children: Osiris, Horus, Set, Isis and Nephthys. 

August 14th: The Inebriety of Hathor/Sekhmet

The story of the blood passion of Sekhmet and her appeasement through the drinking of beer laced with a magical potion represent the blood mysteries of women and the states of maidenhood, motherhood and wise crone. 

September 11th: Seven Hathors - Celebrate Hathor's Birthday

The seven Hathors are handmaidens of the goddess Hathor, rather akin to the seven fairy godmothers who grant good wishes for the newborn. All healing, dreams and envisionings welcomed!

October 9th: Feast Day of Ma'at

Through Ma’at, the foundation of every temple and the plinth upon which every god stands, we learn to speak truth with compassion and purity. She teaches us nature’s inalterable laws of the cosmos.

November 13th: The Lamentations of Isis and Nephthys

The month-long lamentations of the sister goddesses for their brother Osiris show how we mourn, survive loss, remember and eventually find the place where we truly belong.

December 11th: Night of the Mothers Nut & Isis and the Birth of the Holy Child

The winter solstice which celebrated the sky goddess was the precursor to the Christmas story. The holy child, whether Horus, or Ra or Jesus celebrates the return of the son/sun of the goddess who was the light of the world.
