SpringEquinox

  • Map of Lower Egypt from WikipediaSaturday 22nd September is the Ancient Egyptian Ritual of the Neteru of the Two Lands

    The Two Lands, comprising of Upper & Lower Egypt, were presided over by the more successful Pharoahs. To the north was Lower Egypt (see map from Wikipedia) where the Nile fans into the Nile Delta.

    To the south was Upper Egypt, stretching to Aswan. The terms Upper and Lower Egypt are derived from the unusual geography of the Nile, which unlike most rivers, flows from south to north. Its origins are in the highlands of East Africa and it ends with the Nile Delta which drains into the Mediterannean Sea.

    Double Crown of Egypt image from WikipediaIn Spiritual lore, Upper and Lower Egypt could be said to represent the higher and lower self of the human body, and as such would need to be integrated on an annual basis with the help of the Neteru (Deities or Angelic Beings).

    The unification of Upper and Lower Egypt occurred in about 3000 BC, but the pschent - or double crown, see  Wikipedia image on the right - worn by the Pharoahs represented the combined regalia of both areas; the hedjet or White Crown for Upper Egypt and the deshret or Red Crown for Lower Egypt, each half representing sovereignty of one of the kingdoms.

    Established Ancient Egyptian tradition generally credits Menes (also known as Narmer), as the king who united Upper and Lower Egypt.

    On the Narmer Palette the king is depicted wearing the Red Crown in one scene and the White crown in another, and thereby showing his rule over both Lands.

    22nd September is also an alternative date for the Ancient Egyptian Ceremony of Transformation through Anpu (Anubis), though most sources list it as 4th September.  Joanna was interviewed by Linda Lang from ThoughtChange for their Mystical Side of Life Podcast series - see it on YouTube or for audio go to Anchor.

    anubis with sampleAn MP3 Meditation to overcome negative behaviour patterns is available from the Harmony Shop. The Egyptians believed that when a deceased soul entered the Halls of Amenti they would undergo a ceremony involving the metaphorical weighing of the heart (of the deceased) against Maat's feather, whereby the weight of the heart represents the degree to which the deceased lived in truth (that is how much he/she has sinned, the more he/she had sinned the heavier the heart). The meditation guides you through a journey with Anpu to see how you would fare if your heart was weighed against Maat's feather at this point in your life. This meditation was devised for 4th September, which being a Festival of Anpu would add emphasis, but can be used anytime.
     
    Anpu is the illegitimate child of Nebt-Het (Nephthys), born of her clandestine union with Asar (Osiris) but raised as the son of Set. Cast out when his true lineage was discovered, he became associated with dark and lonely places, a wanderer through the shadow-realm between life and death, Anpu therefore bearing witness to the darker side of mortality. He seeks out those lost souls who find themselves without guidance after their demise. He guards the Entrance to the Underworld, presided over by his true father Asar.  Hence, all who die will find themselves in the presence of this mysterious Jackel-headed God, who escorts them away from this world and to the gates of the next.

  • Solstice image licensed by DreamtimeSunday 23rd September at 02.54 is the Pagan Celebration of the Autumn Equinox, marking the time of harvest festival and fulfilment of summer; since, in the Northern Hemisphere, from now on there will be more dark than light for the rest of the year. 

    An equinox is an astronomical event when the plane of Earth's equator passes the center of the Sun. Equinoxes occur twice a year, around 21st March and 22nd/23rd September.

    At this point in the year, the night and day lengths are exactly equal, so it's a time of balance and a good time for introspection, look for what is good and worthwhile to become seeds for next year.

    Here in the UK, followers of the Druids, Pagans, Celtic and Gaelic traditions, as well as Wicca religion, gather at megalithic stone circles such as Stonehenge (Near Salisbury, Wiltshire) and Castlerigg (Keswick, Cumbria), to celebrate and watch the equinox sunrise.

    Sunday 23rd September is the start of Sukkot, the Jewish feast of the Tabernacles, it celebrates the harvest and the preservation of the Israelites in the wilderness.  

    Jewish feast dates begins at sundown of the night beforehand. Thus all holiday observances begin September.

    Tuesday 20th March is the Pagan Vernal Equinox at 16.15.  

    The Equinox is a time when light and dark are equal over the whole world. It's good to mark the moment with silence and stillness. See my live Facebook Pelusia/Facebook video.

    Representing balance of opposites, symbolically it's a great time to bring harmony and balance into your life.

    In the UK and the rest of the Northern Hemisphere, this is the Spring Equinox, in the Southern Hemisphere it's the Autumn Equinox. Image left by Przemyslaw "Blueshade" Idzkiewicz shows the illumination of Earth by Sun on the day of equinox  (vernal and autumnal) and is from Wikimedia Commons.

    On this day the sun rises exactly at due East and sets at due west. This fact makes it a good day for finding due east and due west from your favourite site for watching the night sky. Simply go outside around sunset or sunrise and notice the exact location of the sun on the horizon with respect to familiar landmarks. See Earthsky Websitefor more.

    PhuelHere is an Angela McGerr Angelic Meditation with Barakiel (the ruler of Pisces) and Phuel (guardian angel of water) which could be conducted for the Equinox 

    The Zodiac Sign of Pisces is ruled by Neptune and is of course a Water Sign. 

    This Equinox day (final day of the Sign) gives you an opportunity to use the healing powers of Barakiel, Ruler of Pisces, and Phuel, Angel Ruler of Neptune, who is also Lord of Waters and Powers of the Moon.

    See image of Phuel (right) by Richard Rockwood, taken from Angela's Harmony Angel Cards, last few copies available from our Harmony Shop as it's now out of print).

    Try this exercise with these two mighty Angels. Use it to heal, wash away emotional turbulence and hurt, for heart and thymus to re-expand. 

    • You could do this exercise while in the bath, or just swimming, or if this is impossible just use your imagination.
    • Sit quietly and focus your attention within, thinking about your desire to calm your emotions.  Say Barakiel’s and Phuel's names three times to invite them in.
    • If you have an aquamarine (one of Phuel's crystals), hold this in your left hand and it will be programmed with healing during this exercise.
    • Start taking deep breaths of blue green energy, breathing them right down through your body.
    • Imagine you are walking in a beautiful place of nature.
    • Presently you come to a pool of crystal clear water, reflecting a blue sky.
    • Know that with the power of water energy your spirit can go down into this water to be healed and washed clean of emotional turbulence.
    • Imagine that you can step into the water and float in it. 
    • If you wish to you can merge for a short time with the water itself, becoming the medium that nourishes fish and other water creatures.
    • The water is very still, silken in texture and peaceful.
    • The sun shines into its depths, lighting the grains of sand at the bottom.
    • Let go of your cares; they are washed away by the healing power of water.
    • When you feel relaxed, come out of the water (real or imaginary)
    • Ask Phuel to seal in your emotional healing, and seal your crystal with silver and aquamarine rays; remember to thank him and Barakiel for their assistance.
