Kheper - Rebirth

Kheper – Rebirth

Today’s card is Kheper, the scarab beetle found everywhere on tomb and temple walls and worn as an amulet by the Ancient Egyptians. Kheper pushes the sun before him, and represents the dawn as he pushes it over the horizon every day. Thus Kheper asks you what you are looking for to come into your life? Is it a new job, new relationship, or a new outlook on life? Kheper is the master of transformation and invites you to transform the world by transforming yourself.

Ayehh - the Moon

Ayehh – the Moon

Today’s card is Ayehh, a symbol for the moon in all of its phases. The Ancients linked the moon with Djehuti (Thoth), the scribe of the gods. One of Djehuti’s jobs was to record dreams and compile them into a dictionary. Sleep was thought of as the little death, where a person went to the other world temporarily, only to awaken into this world. On such a journey, things were experienced and people encountered that would have been impossible here. Djehuti asks you if you are paying attention to your own dreams? Do you keep a journal so that the symbolism does not fade with the morning light? Do you make note of what these symbols mean to you, as they may have your own significance? Djehuti opens the scroll of your dreams and invites you to learn from them.

Renenutet - Fertile Soil

Renenutet – Fertile Soil

Today’s card is Auset (Isis), the wife of Ausar (Osiris) and mother of Heru (Horus). She shows the powerful position of Egyptian women in ancient times. When her husband was assassinated, Auset used healing magic to bring him back to life. Ausar told her he was more powerful in the other world, and left the government of Egypt, and the raising of their son, in her capable hands. Auset is thus a healer, regent, and protector-mother of the next generation. Auset asks you to look at your own capabilities. Do you have an impossible situation facing you with a powerful opponent? Are you in charge of someone younger or less experienced? Auset lets you know that you have within you all that you need to succeed in this situation. You have the knowledge and experience to be filled with wisdom! Do not look to the approval of those you think more powerful than yourself. Instead, look to your belief in God or a higher power as your source of all that is good.

Mnevis - Herald

Mnevis – Herald

Today’s card is Mnevis, the sacred black bull that represents both HetHer (Hathor) and the Nile river. In ancient times, the Egyptians selected a perfect bull which they treated with the greatest respect. At the appointed time, this bull was sacrificed so that he could take with him to God all the messages, prayers, and requests of the pharaoh, the priests, and the people. Mnevis asks you, if you were to have an appointment with God personally, what would you ask for? What is on your heart to tell God? What do you want God to know about you? Happily for the bulls of today, you can go directly to God in prayer. Do it now and start a conversation!

Bennu - Safe Place

Bennu – Safe Place

Today’s card is Egypt’s phoenix, the Bennu bird. In a creation myth, the Bennu lands upon a benben stone, that is the only thing above water when the god Ptah builds the first dam to hold back the waters. The very fact of the bird lighting upon the stone declares that the land is good and habitable for mankind. The Bennu bird asks you where you are standing? Have you found your true vocation in life? Does your work make you feel good, or are you just living paycheck to paycheck? If you do not have a job, what are you doing with your life to make the world a better place? It all begins with you.

Aker - Time

Aker – Time

Today’s card is Aker, the glyph for time. The glyph shows a horizon of two hills and the sun resting between them. It shows the “now” in which we live, which is supported by the past and the future. It asks you, what are you doing with your… time? Eternity is infinite time, but we do not have that in our lives here. If you are living in the past, or waiting for the future, you are not fully here in the now, where life takes place. Treasure every moment you have on Earth and wake up to the mission you chose to fulfill in your lifetime.

Sekhmet - Fire

Sekhmet – Fire

SekhMet is here today to tell you about the power of the light. In Ancient Egyptian mythology, SekhMet was both a protector and a destroyer. She is the sun at high noon, the very peak of its power. In the Egypt Cards deck, SekhMet represents the element of light or fire, pure power. SekhMet asks you how you use your own power? Do you consciously direct this power or let it loose without thought? Do you realize the true source of all power? When you find this source, do you respect it and defer to God’s direction? SekhMet encourages you to step into the mastery of your life through conscious attention to the source of the light.

Oct 23, 2013 Nebu – Gold

Nebu - Gold

Nebu – Gold

Today’s card is Nebu, the hieroglyph for the precious metal, gold. Gold is far more than the wealth of Ancient Egypt, it was considered to be so precious that it was the skin of the gods (their covering) and solidified sunlight (the life force given by the sun). Nebu is here to ask you what it is that you treasure? Do you value physical objects, like jewelry or money? Do you treasure your gifts and talents, or your job experience that contributes to the quality of your work? Or do you have treasures in heaven — spiritual gifts that help make the world a better place for everyone? Whatever it is that you value, make sure that you know why you value it. If you know the reason behind it, you are less likely to catch “gold fever”, being obsessed by something that you can’t take with you into eternity.

Tefnut – Water

Tefnut, the Ancient Egyptian goddess of moisture, is here to talk to you about water. Tefnut assures you that water is necessary for your life, and for the life of the planet. Knowing how important it is, how often do you bless the water you consume? Do you think about its source? Do you bathe in it, knowing that water is sacred and is blessing you at all levels, not just your physical body? Are you thankful for the rains that you get, even when they are storms? Tefnut advises you to get to know water more in your life, so that you may become one of its guardians on planet Earth.
