streakingfate said: I'm interested in Set. I'm not a spirit worker or anything, but He seems to have approached me through my tarot cards with a serious relationship in mind. Do you have any advice or research options? I have both Wilkinson's and Pinch's encyclopedias about the Gods, I'm just a little intimidated . . .
OMG TIT TIT
Lucky for you streakingfate , you don’t have to be a spirit worker in order to work with Set. I didn’t so spirit work for many many years (and I still question if what I do is actually spirit work) and yet we still got along. So you’ll be fine in that regard :>
My standard list of resources for Set is:
- Set – God of Confusion: Te Velde
- Joan Lansberry
- Henadology article
- Slaying the Demon-Serpent
- Set associations
- Flirting with Destruction: A guide to working with Set
- A list of some of his epithets
All in all, he’s not a bad bro. He can be rough around the edges, and he can be an asshole. But overall I don’t mind him. In my experience he’s a-okay with people being an asshole right back, so there is at least that. He likes ugly, gaudy shit and sharp and pointy items.
I think a lot of people are intimidated by him because OMG OVERLORD OF DARKNESS AND EVIL AND CHAOS, but I really think he’s just misunderstood in a lot of ways. He gets short-sticked in a lot of ways (Over There, in the Duat), and his job can easily corrode your mind and morale (PTSD, anyone?) and I think that’s part of why he comes across as he does.
I’m not entirely sure what else to say, but I’m always open to questions about Tit Tit.
(UPG warning xD)
Titit is a dick, but otherwise he is a good Dad. His methods will make you facepalm, but it still works in a very annoying way (so you can’t sue him for that). Titit likes it when you make him the center of attention. You might consider reopening your childhood fake jewelry collection, because there might be some stuffs Titit would want. The good thing about Titit is that he’s not picky with offerings. You can offer him coffee and he’s still be pleased. But Titit can be a whiny child when it comes to chocolate. Don’t be surprised when you already walked around the groceries but is still greeted by the same chocolate shelf. If you suddenly lost your Titit, DO NOT PANIC and call the police. Titit will be back after he’s done messing with his other kids’ lives xD
forceyourway said: From Slaying the Demon-Serpent: "Every night, Set drives His lance (or His “foreleg”/scimitar: hpš) into its mouth, killing it, and paints the light of the dawn red with its blood." So, Set literally kicks isfet/ap-ep in the mouth? That's hilarious. Can "He Who Kicks Isfet In The Mouth" be a new epithet? Can someone art this?
Yep, that’s exactly what he does. It often looks like this:
I could totally see him in big old combat boots kicking a/pep in the face-hole, though. SET. SMASH.
So this exists… and only $12!
