Undermining the Patriarchy Every Chance I Get. And I Get a Lot of Chances
A Spell for Egypt
Many Pagans -- whether we call ourselves Kemetic or not -- have a spiritual and emotional attachment to Egypt. And we've watched with sorrow the events of the past week, often not even sure which "side" to support.
I suspect that Ma'at supports the people: the women, and children, and old people simply trying to live in the midst of violence and chaos. I suspect that Ma'at supports the fathers, trying to do the best they can for their children, to bring in a crop, to grow old. I suspect that Ma'at supports the land.
A friend of mine suggested a ritual, which may be all that we can do from afar, but which is something we can do. I'm going to perform it this weekend and, should you feel so inclined and should your Goddesses and Gods approve, I invite you to join me.
Print or draw a map of Egypt. Add any symbols or inscriptions that will help you to focus your energies on peace. Imagine the angry passions cooling down enough so that people can talk instead of shoot. When the map is imbued with cool, peaceful energy, fold it up and put it in a small container. Cover with cool water (which you may also want to charge with peaceful energy), place in your freezer, and let it freeze until things calm down again in Egypt. Then, you can put it into your compost pile.
May peace come to Egypt. So mote it be.
