Amen - Ra is the God that my Egyptian zodiac says I am born under.
I took interest in the Egyptian zodiac for two reasons;
first because of the name Amen, and second because it predates the others by thousands of
Some faiths end their prayers by saying Amen, not aware of the fact that they are giving praise
to the God Amen-Ra.
In his right hand he is holding the symbol of life, and in his left a scepter.
He is the lord of the thrones, bringer of light, and life.
Sometimes he’s seen holding the khepesh war knife, in his right hand, and
depicted with the head of a hawk, as he takes on many forms.
I can relate to this because I’ve taken on these different forms myself;
sometimes a lover, sometimes a fighter, and always watching like a hawk.
As much as we’d like a world without Seth, there will always be somebody
who will mistake our kindness for being weak.
So stay strong, bring light, bring life, bring the good fight, and keep hawking.
hawking: taken from american slang
verb - transitive
•to look at, watch, stare, or eye. From the bird, hawk.
Quit hawking' me!
