Prayer To Anpu- Martin Ludgate

Oh You, who are opener of the ways

Hear my voice

Oh  You, whose ears pierce the walls of noise

Hear my Voice

Oh You, who walk unheeding through the winds of fear

Hear my Voice

You are the Dark pupil of the sun

The knowledgable Eclipse in the Iris of fire

You are the seeing Darkness

Guide me safely through the terrors of my own unseeing

Preserve me from my unspoken sorrows

Return me Safely through the gate of becoming

And open for me

The door that admits humankind

To the eternal garden

Oh You, who are the opener of the ways

Walk with me

As I mentioned on a group no longer in existence, I was shemsu for the House of Netjer almost a decade ago, and within it I was devoted to Wepwawet, an almost forgotten cousin to Yinepu, similar in icongraphy but quite different in vocation. Whereas Yinepu lead the dead, as psychopomp to the Kemetic peoples, Wepwawet led the armies, one of the very oldest of war gods.

Still, there was a rather unique bond between the two that went beyond their animal form and I am perpetually fascinated with deities whose vocation is with the dead. It's pretty much a common theme, with war deities, in my life. :)

I am also quite fascinated with death deities and animals,that have that nature, specifically psychopomps. It has been something I've been surrounded by since my childhood. It was only after my dad died that I decided to take the plunge and research more thoroughly on Hekate and the animals I honour as spirit animals.


I would say Wepwawet is indeed obscure, and I do not know much about him, but now I am hungry to research more:)


I've never been with HON, so my experience and rituals are based on what I've read in the small amount of books I've found and obviously Neo wiccan practice.

He seemed to have a higher popularity in the earliest of dynasties, and some sources suggest that he and Yinepu were the same, but the role (and name change) did not occur until Kemetic religion became especially interested in the afterlife. Presumably, if you accept the idea that Wesir was an actual king, that transition would have taken place when he ascended to his role of judge to those whose heart would be weighed against the feather of Ma'at.

Other sources suggest they are only similar in their animal identification. In the heiroglyphics, nearly the only way to tell them apart is that while Yinepu carries a staff, Wepwawet carries a banner/flag.

It's all fascinating!

I have always been fascinated with Egyptian gods and goddesses with the half human half animal,  Sekhemet and Bast and Osiris mostly but i do hope to learn more about Anubis by joining this group!

Happy new year!!


May Anpu walk with us while the New year brings new hopes, dreams and experiences. May his staff provide us with the strength we need to overcome any obstacles and may we continue to strive for balance in our lives...


Brightest Blessings

Hey Nightshade. I can't wait to learn a whole bunch of things about Anubis. The book that I read that my sister got me for my birthday opened my eyes about what he really does. But I'm not sure how to start working with him. If there's any advice that you can give me, I'm willing to learn from you.

Hi Kimmie, welcome to the group.


If I am not busy tonight- I'm at varsity right now- I will reply to your question.


Further to everyone else I apologise for my absence in the groups, Varsity is a bit hectic but hopefully it will calm down :)

Kimmie please read my reply to Jen's discussion. It offers a simple ritual. If I have time I will outline a ritual I use to make the Anpu incense, as well as the two rituals from the book mentioned in the discussion reply.
