Anubis is the boss


Hello humans I'm Anubis. I'm an Egyptian god with a human body and a jackal head. I was the god of embalming and the dead. Since jackals were often seen in cemeteries, the ancient egyptians believed that I watched over the dead. I was the god who helped embalm Osiris after he was killed by Seth. Therefore I was the god who watched over the process of mummifying people when they died. Priests wore masks of me during the mummification ceremonies. Here is a picture of me that someone painted.

Oh, Hi! I'm Hathor, the goddess of music, love, and happiness. I'm the wife of Horus, and some people call me the mother of the pharaoh. I'm also sometimes called the goddess of the dessert and the turquoise mines in Sinai. I had people build me temples, My favorite one was a large temple in Dendera. Luxor is about 60 kilometers north of Dendera, on the west bank of the Nile river. So anyways, back to me! So basically my Egyptian symbol is me, with cow horns, and a sun disc sitting in the middle of the cow horns. Or you can picture me as a beautiful women with cow horns, or like I said before. Oh, and I almost forgot, I'm also the goddess of beauty, cheerfulness, dance, childbirth, and motherhood. i'm an ancient god, thats why i have so many names, Some people even say I used to be the goddess of destruction. I was mentioned as early as the 2nd dynasty.

One great tale of how I was invented was that Ra( the god of power and might) released Sekhmet upon humanity to destroy human ingratitude. Ra starts to regret his decision and try's to stop Skhemet, but she has already dropped beer as red of blood for Dendera. She starts to become drunk and then falls asleeps. Then Dendera starts to form me, Hathor. Hathor, me can be considered as any of the later egyptian goddesses.

So now that you know mostly what I mean, and a tale of how I came to be, I'll tell you a little bit more! So anyways the greeks called me they're version of me... Aphrodite, you might of heard of her. Anyways that was just a quick fact! I'm now gonna tell you about why I was first called the god of destruction. It has parts of the story I told you earlier. But anyways, I went to see my father, Re, and the people saw he was getting old, so they went too form a plan to over throne him, so my father sent me to slaughter them, so I went. I slaughtered them and drank they're blood. On my way back from slaughtering the people, I came to almost every village in Egypt, and slaughtered many men, women, and children. When I got back my father tried to tell me I have started destroying many villages, thats why they called me the goddess of destruction, but the story goes on! I went the next day to finish my task, and I saw a pool of redness, thinking it was blood, but it was beer. I was drunk and came back to my fathers throne and went to sleep for many days, when I woke up, I was Hathor, Me again!

So I've gone through many ups and downs but, I still am the goddess of everything I said, earlier. Anyways so I also figured out that I became the goddess of pregnant women, this should be nice! I'm supposed to watch over the women while they are giving birth, well that should be pretty easy. Anyways, thanks for listening about my life!

Dear Atum,
I heard that you wanted to know how my life was as a God so I’m going to write you this message. When I’m done you can about your life as a God and what you do.

First of all my name is Khepri and my name means “ He who is coming into being”. I have the head of a scarab beetle and I am the God of creation, the movement of the sun, and rebirth. The scarab beetle has a habit of laying eggs. Another thing you should know about me is I have 4 other different names Kepera, Kheper, Khepre, Chepri. I do not know why people call me 5 different names!

About the beetle on my head it is really annoying because it is really hard to see because the eyes are very, very small. I do not know why I’m writing to you because your my brother but I think it might have something to do with my beetle head. You probably known this but I am the morning sun, Ra is the midday sun, and as you know you are the evening sun. Another thing about me is I was come to be with this beetle on my head.

You and I are seen as aspects of Ra which means that we have the same qualities, character, and nature or that we are viewed alike even though me and you really don't look the same. Ra has a hawk head and you have a double crown and a long beard.

In Egyptian mythology Sekhment was originally the warrior goddess as well as goddess of healing for Upper Egypt. She was known as a lioness, a feirce hunter known to the egypts. She was also known as the daughter of Ra, the sun god. Her name is from the Egyptian word Sekhem which means power or might and is also said as the Powerful One.
Sekhmet was close with Kingship. She was often described as the mother of Maahes, the lion god who was a patron of the pharaoh and the pyramid texts.
She was associated with the goddesses given the title Eye of Ra. According to myth, Ra became angry because mankind was not following his laws. He decided to unish all of mankind by sending a servent of his daughter, the Eye of Ra. He sent her to earth in the form of a lion. She became Sekhmet, the Eye of Ra.

Set. Set is the god of chaos, the color red and Upper Egypt. He is pictured as a man with a jackals head. In a moment here I'm going to hand the microphone off to Horus and he will tell you more about his uncle Set.


Hi. I'm Horus, god of falcons and I'm going to tell you about my uncle Set. Set was the ancient Egyptian god of chaos, jackals, winds evil, darkness,strength, war, desert storms, and Upper Egypt. He is 20"7" he has red hair and eyes(although he sometimes Set has the head of a jackal). Tomorrow he is 3,540 and he has that many years of a dark and moody attitude. *snicker* in one *giggle* story he looks like*laugh* a hippo. He was not happy about that. Anyway, he's mostly a mean spirited jerk. Once he chopped up my father Osiris and threw him all over the globe. So my mom, Isis, went to gather him up and once she did she tried to bring him back. It sort of worked he was alive but he became The Lord of the dead. So we have had a lot of fights about that. But aside from him being a jerk he is still a god and all Egyptians and all Egyptian gods respect him. So the gods and I are throwing him a surprise birthday party. the theme is chaotic red. Since red is Set's favorite color. I won't tell you about this since your not a god.

Set can usually be found in his temple in Upper Egypt because he is the lord of Upper Egypt. (I'm the god of Lower Egypt). Sometimes he hangs out with his wife/twin sister Nephthys. And on special ocasions he visits his parents Geb and Nut. But most of the time he spends time with his special "Set Animal" and they cause storms and chaos.

Some of you may think Set is a bad person which he mostly is but that was only because the Egyptians warped his personality. Originally he protected Amun-Ra against Apophis. But now he is mostly chaotic. Now he is a full fledged evil god. Yet, I like that in him. No religion is complete without an evil god. Set is pretty awesome.

Thoth
Thoth is the Egyptian god of writing, the moon, magic, and wisdom. He looks like a human with the head of an ibis. He will also wear a crown the shape of a waning crescent moon or a waning gibbous moon. He is also represented as a baboon with a canine snout either holding the moon above is head or wearing a crown that is holding the full moon. The baboon form of Thoth is known as A’an, the god of equilibrium.

Thoth is the wife of Ma’at, who is the goddess of honesty and order and basically the opposite of Apophis, the serpent of chaos. Thoth also has a female counterpart named Seshat. Seshat is the goddess of written language and is often mistaken for Thoth’s wife, mother, of sister.

Thoth is considered about the 3rd or 4th most important god, just behind Nut (sometimes Nut), Ma’at, and Ra. He rides on Ra’s boat with his wife Ma’at every night on Ra’s journey to the Duat. (The Duat is the Egyptian equivalent to a netherworld or underworld.)

Thoth wasworshipped as a very important deity in the city Hermopolis. (Hermopolis is named after the Greek god Hermes because the Greek believed that Thoth and Hermes were different versions of the same god. Hermopolis’ original and Egyptian name is Khmun.) Hermopolis is the 2nd most important ancient city, next to Waset.

Shezmu was an ancient Egyptian demonic god of the underworld. He was known for execution, slaughter, blood, oil, wine and perfume. Even though most of these qualities appears negative, he was known for both dark and lightness.
Shezmu is described as a man with the head of a falcon or lion. Some descriptions show him with fangs and a mane drenched in blood. He wore a belt around his waist made of human skulls.
Shezmu.jpg
Shezmu was known to destroy people who were evil or did wrong things. He did this by ripping off their heads and throwing the head into a wine press which would squeeze out blood. He followed the commands of The God of The Dead, therefore he was given the title, "Slaughterer of Souls."wine press.png.
Although Shezmu was a feared executioner of bad people, he was also a great protector of good people. He offered innocent dead people wine to drink. Shezmu is linked to the color red as in blood and wine. Red was a color that was feared by Egyptians.

THOTH, THE GOD OF THE MOON

Thoth's other names include:
  • Djhuty
    • Djehuty
    • Dhouti
    • Djehuti
    • Tehuty
    • Tehuti
    • Thout

  • WHAT THOTH LOOKED LIKE


In art, Thoth was usually depicted with the head of an ibis, coming from his name, and the curve of the ibis' beak, which resembles the crescent moon. Thoth the Scribe, wrote the story of our reality then placed it into grids for us to experience and learn through the alchemy of time and consciousness.

He was sometimes depicted with the face of a dog-headed baboon and the body of a man or, again, as a full dog-headed baboon. The ibis, it is thought, had a crescent shaped beak, linking the bird to the moon.

The dog-headed baboon, on the other hand, was a night animal that was seen by the Egyptians who would greet the sun with chattering noises each morning just as Thoth would greet Ra( the sun god ) as he rose.

HISTORY OF THOTH

Thoth became credited by the ancient Egyptians as the inventor of writing, and was also considered to have been the scribe of the underworld, and the moon became occasionally considered a separate entity, now that Thoth had less association with it, and more with wisdom.
For this reason Thoth was universally worshiped by ancient Egyptian Scribes.
Also, he became credited as the inventor of the 365-day (rather than 360-day) calendar, it being said that he had won the extra 5 days by gambling with the moon, in a game of dice.
