Some what, I been studying more around her and the history of her in hopes of understanding a little before I jump into things.

My coven also thinking through the work weve done that I am tied to her some how.

 
I think the best thing for now is try and learn as much as you can about Her.
It's so lovely that you have a coven! If you even try to mention Paganism in my country they'll point at you yelling 'devil's child!', so yeah. *jealous*

Thats my plan. Trust me all depends on you location. Where I'm located at it is seen as devil worshipping, but most are scared that we have evil spells, so they leave us be. My coven is a mix of many people/ beliefs, not you normal coven ;).

Oh, really? Because on other forums it's against the rules. That's cool, then!

Here you go -

I will try to find it again (brain freeze at the moment and I can't remember where I read it) but I came across a mention of a story fragment where Set did battle with the sea.  Anybody know about it?  

Then, there's this news release of a lecture done in 2011.    What do you think?

I think you're referring to the myth where Yamm was threatening Egypt or something like that (I'd have to look up the specific details). Set did battle with Yam and defeated him. Yamm was apparently a god apposed to Baal, with whom Set was sometimes equated.

Yup.  I don't know about the Kemetic version, but in the Canaanite version of the myth, Yam battles Ba'al over the kingship.  I assume Ba'al and Set would have been equated because of the connection with storms . . . otherwise They don't really have that much in common that I can think of.

Guys, is any of you working with Set? Is He easy to approach?

Sorry I'm late to this, been off the site for awhile.  This is strictly my UPG on the subject.

I work with him primarily, and it's never what I expect.  I've always felt quite energized working with him. I have found that my life changed for the better in a lot of ways, lots of personal growth, but it involved really looking into parts of myself that I did not want to acknowledge and at times was uncomfortable.  But very much well worth it.  I noticed my bullshit detector and  ability to notice BS got a lot better, so I don't think he tolerates deception much, especially self-deception.

As for approach-ability, I'd say it's pretty much on his terms because I don't always get a sense of his presence, but when he is there, you'll probably know it.  It's pretty direct.  

First time I felt I encountered him was reading Richard Reidy's book Eternal Egypt which has a ritual to him in it.  If you feel inclined to work with him, I'd say go for it.  I was intimidated at first for obvious reasons, but I'm very glad I have worked with him.

Thank you! That's what most people say about their experiences with Him.

Quote from: Ariadne;89161
Something weird happened in my dream. I dreamed that I was having intercourse with Set. :ashamed:
I always liked Egyptian mythology but nothing special. That being said, you can't think  that I saw the dream bacause I wanted to, as I've never thought about working with a deity from the Kemetic Pantheon.
I feel a little ashamed for making this thread, but I thought it was pretty weird and wanted your opinions.
Could it be a sign that Set is interested in me? Or it's not something special?

 
Don't be ashamed. Of course that's never happen to me before so that's all I can say.

*shifts gears to hijack mode*

Okay, I've got a question for those more experienced than I and just others who have worked with/honored/worshipped Set. I recently had a most funky of dreams. In it there was a rather elaborate nativity scene, life-sized and everything with a real manger and straw on the floor and all that. On the floor, in front of the manger, was this large, ugly as all hell, fanged snake. It was laying there dead and bloated, flopped on it's back with it's throat torn out. By the manger was a very large red-brown rooster, just laying there like it owned the place. It gave me a very distinct impression that upon waking I'm like "...he would show up as a giant cock wouldn't he, lol"

So I'm just curious if anyone else has had him show up as a large rooster, or is that just a product of my mind?

I haven't had that sort of theophany from himself, and I don't think that it is historical.  (However, since the rooster was red, all red animals are on some level Setian, by the historical perspective.)

However: a rooster is a pretty classic symbol in our culture of strutting masculinity.

Also, that's about the level of his sense of humor.  Dick jokes and headbending manifestations. ;)

As I read what I wrote, a very strong impression of CLUCK CLUCK MOTHAF*CKA came rolling into my head, followed by a heavy dose of laughter.

And speaking of unorthodox theopanic expressions, anyone else who venerate Set ever have him show a large interest in Dragons? I have a number of draconic statues, and a few have been made known that he wants them in his altar space, specifically the ones that resemble the classic european form of the dragon. The bigger and more snarling looking, the more he seems to like them.
