|10:08 am - Our lady of slaughter
From glitterboy1 a very silly thing that I like. I didn't even know the Ancient Egyptians had zodiac signs.
ETA - a quick google indicates it corresponds to this egyptian zodiac but not this egyptian zodiac (which makes me anubis).
I like that, too. It's actually quite good!
Also at the feast of Sekhmet everyone got drunk and had it off so yay for the ancient egyptians
Cor. That's a bit better than Anubis, whose name apparently means something like 'putrefaction'. Things looked promising for a moment, when I found reference to a fetish associated with him, but it wasn't *that* kind of fetish.

Sounds like a good sign :)
she's a bit of a loose cannon
Awk. And here's me with the same result...
From what I've seen of you here that strikes me as apt.
I'm Satis: "Peace-loving and tolerant, receptive to wealth, analytical and science-minded, tender towards those who are not ignorant, can sometimes be angry." Highly amused by the 'receptive to wealth' thing - I'd certainly be receptive to a bit more of it! Also amused by the implied lack of tenderness towards the ignorant...um, that figures.
He's got a good turn of phrase hasn't he? these are better than the usual zodiac descriptions - or perhaps they are just so short they don't have space to go wrong

That's very appropriate, and you get to wear a lion as a hat, like Tilda Swinton did.
I got Amon-Ra: "Very generous, fruitful, people feel reassured around you, and willing to give their best. A god of the creation of the earth; the patron god of Thebes; and the king of all the gods of Egypt. Form of a man, wearing crown with the sun disc and double feather plumes. Sometimes shown with blue skin."
I like the bit about the blue skin and being king of all the other gods best of course.
Excellent, you are blue like Krishna, someone else on my f-list was talking about that today
This is another one that's very apropriate. Especially, as you say, the blue skin.

Cool! I carry around (on my mobile phone) these two Sekhmet-related poems from...um...somewhere in the Tubes... I find them meaningful and beautiful, and now you might, too!
The Chapter of Giving a Heart to the Osiris
May the goddess Sekhmet raise me, and lift me up. Let me ascend into heaven, let that which I command be performed in Hikuptah. I know how to use my heart. I am master of my heart-case. I am master of my hands and arms. I am master of my legs. I have the power to do that which my KA desireth to do. My Heart-soul shall not be kept a prisoner in my body at the gates of Amenty when I would go in in peace and come forth in peace.
A Hymn of Sekhmet says:
Mine is a heart of carnelian, crimson as murder on a holy day.
Mine is a heart of corneal, the gnarled roots of a dogwood and the bursting of flowers.
I am the broken wax seal on my lover's letters.
I am the phoenix, the fiery sun, consuming and resuming myself.
I will what I will.
Mine is a heart of carnelian, blood red as the crest of a phoenix.
Thank you for those. That reminds me of that Steve Earle song 'I got me a fearless heart'
That's a good one. I'm just next door and apparently I'm Bastet - "You look for balance and harmony, anxious, devoted. Often rash and impatient." Hmm seems to suit me better than my usual Leo - and I do like shades of grey.
I think you are definitely more Bastet than Leo. And the balance and harmony thing, I see that.
I'm the world's most ridiculous Leo ;-)
