My first photo! After years of amateur gameplays on YouTube, Assassin’s Creed has made me take a liking to the world of virtual photography. Is there a better way to start than an image of Bayek in the Temple of Amun in Siwa? Nothing like playing the story again to enjoy the little details … Hope you like it!
Game: Assassin’s Creed Origins (Ubisoft Montreal)

The goddess Setet (or Satet, Satis, etc.), a deity of Upper Egypt and tied to the essential annual Nile flood, and often identified as part of the Elephantine Triad, with her consort Khnum, a creator god and protector of the source of the Nile, and their daughter Anuket, a goddess of the Nile cataracts and of a portion of Nubia. Setet was also seen as a goddess of the bow and defender of Egypt's southern border, as well as afertility goddess. Here she is portrayed with the white crown of Upper Egypt, i.e. the hedjet, antelope horns, and the vulture of Nekhbet, emblematic of Upper Egypt. Dynasty XVIII, c. 1401-1391 BCE.

🔮 #DailyTarot - I felt like I needed to meditate a bit before going to bed. The ace of spades stabbed me as soon as I saw it.

In the picture we have both the crowns of Upper and Lower Egypt which remind me of the absolut hegemony Ancient Egyptian had all over the kemetic land; they surround the Sun - or what I think is the Moon.

The phallic figure of the sword breaks through the sensual roundness of the Moon cutting it into lunar phases; it is a clear, victorious, upright cut, aiming the sky as one aims intellectual elevation.

Many things are changing both in my professional and personal life, I thought this could be a good exercise to find a little bit of mental clarity and, according to this tarot, I am starting with the right foot.

This past week focused on Egyptian Mythology!
I took the myths for this past week from Donna Jo Napoli’s “Treasury of Egyptian Mythology.”

This is a few paragraphs into the myth of Sobek, the crocodile god, as told by Donna Jo Napoli in “Treasury of Egyptian Mythology.”
It seems that in a lot of cases, there’s always one to two gods who stand apart from the other gods because of their behavior and personality or because of their inherent nature.
Such is the case with Sobek, who eats meat when the other gods think it’s grotesque to do so.
