Even though I don’t feel I’ve been in the best mental health lately on account my job, I do feel pretty good about the progress I’ve been making with the Shop over the last few off days I’ve had. I finally worked on a new banner header, icon and began to relabel and reshoot the incense and magical salt/sugar bottles,

I’ve added 8 new incense blends, trying to expand beyond the Norse Pantheon (Odin and Freyr are the other new additions not pictured). FireFoxAlchemy now has blends for Hathor, Sekhmet, The Morrigan, Cernunnos, Hermes, and Apollo. Blends for Hades, Set, and Bridgid are in the works, and hopefully be in the shop sooner then later.

I also added 1/2oz oil versions for my Fast Luck and Flying Oils, as well as added a 9 Sacred Woods oil.

I will be adding a few spell charm bottles later today. I’ll also sometime in the next weeks be adding Peace Water, War Water, and Florida Water to the shop.

anonymous asked:

Do you know of any gods related to art in the Egyptian pantheon? The closest thing I can think of is Ptah but supposedly he's more of a god of architecture than anything else

I would say that Ptah is probably one of the biggest. I’d consider him a god of creation and artisans, which can include art and artists. I’d also consider Hathor to be one, as she’s supposed to be about beauty, and art can be beautiful.

To an extent, I could possibly make the case that lots of gods could bleed over into being applicable or related to art, because art can encompass so many things. This is compounded by the concept of heka, which often uses images for its efficacy. Which, in a way, could be considered artwork. And therefore, gods related to heka (which is pretty much all of our pantheon) could indirectly relate to art in that way as well.

So, uh…. idk if that helps? Ptah is my first go to, Hathor is second. But I could see how every NTR could relate to art in some way, shape or form. YMMV, ofc.



Hathor was also the goddess of beauty and patron of the cosmetic arts. Her traditional votive offering was two mirrors and she was often depicted on mirrors and cosmetic palettes. Yet she was not considered to be vain or shallow, rather she was assured of her own beauty and goodness and loved beautiful and good things. She was known as “the mistress of life” and was seen as the embodiment of joy, love, romance, perfume, dance, music and alcohol. Hathor was especially connected with the fragrance of myrrh incense, which was considered to be very precious and to embody all of the finer qualities of the female sex. Hathor was associated with turquoise, malachite, gold and copper. As “the Mistress of Turquoise” and the “lady of Malachite” she was the patron of miners and the goddess of the Sinai Peninsula (the location of the famous mines). The Egyptians used eye makeup made from ground malachite which had a protective function (in fighting eye infections) which was attributed to Hathor.

H A T H O R  is an Egyptian goddess, concerned with joy, feminine love, and motherhood. She was extremely popular throughout Egypt, with more festivals dedicated to her name than any other deity. In some incarnations she is seen as the mother of Ra, in others she is his wife or daughter. The Greeks associated Hathor heavily with their goddess Aphrodite, and the Romans with Venus.  [more]

myth meme: {3/10} goddesses

The Zodiac of Dendera decorated the ceiling of a chapel in the Temple of Hathor at Dendera, where the mysteries of the resurrection of the god Osiris were celebrated.

The vault of heaven is represented by a disc, held up by four women assisted by falcon-headed spirits. Thirty-six spirits or “decans" around the circumference symbolize the 360 days of the Egyptian year.

The constellations shown inside the circle include the signs of the zodiac, most of which are represented almost as they are today. Aries, Taurus, Scorpio, and Capricorn, for example, are easily recognizable, whereas others correspond to a more Egyptian iconography: Aquarius is represented as Hapy, the god of the Nile flood, pouring water from two vases.

The constellations of the northern sky, featured in the center, include the Great Bear (Ursa Major) in the form of a bull’s foreleg. A hippopotamus goddess, opposite Ursa Major and Ursa Minor, represents the constellation of the Dragon.
