Set, my lover, Lord of the Black Flame

Mildly suggestive

I am a mage. This happened to me in the subtle world, where I live.

Set holds the royal Ankh in His right hand, and the staff which imitates the shape of His head in His left
SET, a God of ancients
Lord of the Crimson Sands
Mighty and fierce, 
God and Lord of the Black Flame
You command the dunes, the wind
You have made me your lover

Silenced, I accepted you
And you filled me to brimming with your divinity,
your essence
I accepted you 
A fullness there, an energy made
Of the commander of wind and lightening
I voiced
a thousand different joys
Hoarse and choking on sounds
Too loud and wild to catalogue
with useless words

Release, scintillating
up to wild gyrations
I growled and groaned
And shrieked

I sat still on you at last, quietly
vibrating with pleasure
Our connected energies
your fullness
I was different then
I am different now
I am your lover

Now it is day, I sit in my
placing little world,
feeling you in this
place, a chamber
of burning pleasure
Changing me
Filling my body with this
swoon of heat
of loving

Changing me...
Initiator, you have begun
The change made of the darkness
The never ending darkness
Filled with your black flame
I am filled
I become

The wife of Set

I felt an incredible intimacy with Set in my workings with Him all this week. He was fierce and proud, but also affectionate and tender with me.

I wrote this poem this morning to describe my astonishing astral encounter with Set in the subtle world during my workings with Him last night. I did not know until I researched more about Astarte this evening that when the Egyptians adopted the Phoenician goddess—my magical namesake—she was made the wife of Set.

‘Ashtart [Astarte] first appears in Ancient Egypt beginning with the reign of the Eighteenth dynasty of Egypt along with other deities who were worshiped by northwest Semitic people. She was a lunar goddess adopted by the Egyptians as a daughter of Ra or Ptah. She was especially worshiped in her aspect as a war goddess, often paired with the Semitic goddess Anat. In the Contest Between Horus and Set, these two goddesses appear as daughters of Re and are given in marriage to the god Set, here identified with the Semitic name Hadad.’

—New World Encyclopedia: Astarte

‘In another version of The Contendings of Horus and Set, the gods cannot come to agreement and consult the goddess Neith. Neith was very wise and often called on to mediate disputes between the gods. She suggested that Horus be given rule of Egypt and Set free reign of the desert regions and foreign lands. Recognizing that no land could equal the splendor of Egypt, she also suggested the Ennead grant Set the foreign goddesses Anat and Astarte as consorts as a kind of consolation.’
