Aset Oracle, Year 29

 Following is the transcript of the Oracle of the Year delivered to us by the goddess Aset (Isis) on Her holiday called "Aset Luminous" (occurring on July 2 in Gregorian 2021). Each year, we receive such an oracle to provide wisdom about the Kemetic Orthodox year to come. This year's Wep Ronpet (Kemetic Orthodox New Year, the modern celebration of the ancient Egyptian New Year) occurs on August 5, and this oracle is to cover the next Kemetic year (through Gregorian August 2022). Anhur, a praise name meaning "bringer of the distant one" which is an epithet of the primordial god Shu, is the protective or guardian deity over this year. The colors of this year (to be used in decorating altars or shrines, or for heka purposes to bless and protect) are white and gold to mimic the wind and the sunlight that are His manifestations.

Dua Shu who is Anhur!

Oracle of Year 29 received at Aset Luminous, Year 28 IV Shomu 2 (July 2, 2021CE)

Zep Tepi is always a beginning, but sometimes, things are not complete from the year that has passed. While there is new beginning, new chances, new intentions, new opportunity, there are also things that persist. Some things continue because they are part of the cycle. Other things continue because they must, until they reach their Ma'at. Yet other things continue until changes are made. All these realities are true for you in this time when I am speaking, both the year that is passing and the year that strives to be born.

I am the Throne and I speak of the foundations of creation before all things, before deities and humans and trees and flowing water. I am with you and I have always been with you. I know your fate and your destiny. I know you have promises from last year that were broken and others that were never fulfilled. You can still keep them. Your opportunity to do so will not last forever. You have not forgotten, and neither have I. Keep your promises, including the ones you have made to yourselves.

For some of you, the year of the Flame was more harsh than for others. She brought blessing, and She also came to carry out Ma'at and return balance in a time of its lack. May you be comforted in your losses and celebrated in your gains. May you remember the lessons you learned and not need to repeat them. May you never forget the strength you found in linking with others, in coming together instead of running away. Your hands should still be reaching toward each other, in love, in companionship, in strength, and in rescue. 

Release the anger that will destroy you from within. Fight the divisions that will bring all of creation to flame and destruction. The angered Eye acted by the will of Her Father. She did not go forth because She was angry, or because She desired revenge. When She exceeded Her mandate, She was appeased and came home. Even as the Wandering Eye flees in anger, She is brought to peace. In this cycle of loss and recovery, so too shall you find recovery from loss. Cease wrath where it is not necessary for your survival. If even the divine wrath comes to an end, why should yours be eternal?

Read my words from the last Oracle again. They remain as true as they were the day I spoke them. You still have work to do. Zep Tepi will not erase the need for that work. If anything, it has become even more urgent, as you come closer to understanding Ma'at and what is needed in order to bring Ma'at to fruition in your world. There are many remaining tasks to be completed, hearts that must be mended, wrongs that must be righted. There is much for you to do and you cannot do it by yourselves. Not even all of the children of the Netjeru are enough to finish these tasks, which will involve all beings who live within that which Ra encircles.

We have asked you to come together before. We cannot bless you unless you accept Our blessing. What is given can be taken, or it can be left to wander alone forever. Because We wish for you to receive this blessing, We have chosen a messenger in this year to help you find it.

Firstborn Lion of Creation, Slayer of His Enemies, He Who Brings the Distant comes forth in this Opening of the Year. He retrieves the Flame, He ceases Her angry wanderings, and He finishes the work of Her appeasement. With laughter and joy, with the promise of feasting and dancing, He convinces Her to turn Her kindly face toward You again. For it is never violence that ceases violence, or more pain that ceases pain. Love, and the remembrance of that which is most beloved, will bring you to Ma'at. This Ma'at must be established within your own hearts individually, and collectively among your peoples.

Even in this great work the First Lion did not make his journey alone. With the wisdom of Djehuty, and the blessing of Ra, Anhur-Who-is-Shu went forth. He brings Their blessings to you this year. Do not neglect Their gifts of wisdom and authority. Both will be helpful to you just as They were helpful to Anhur as He sought reunion with the Distant One. 

Accept His blessing and join Him on his journey. Your beloved will be found, but like Anhur, you must retrieve it. Go forth and find Her.

Deity of the Year: Shu as Anhur, "The Bringer of the Distant One" (i.e., the Wandering Eye goddess, called Tefnut, Sekhmet, Hathor, Menhit, Nebtu and other names in the sources)

Colors of the Year: white and gold (wind and sunlight)
