Kemetic Wicca

Kemetic (Egyptian) Wicca

To begin, let us elaborate on Tameran Wicca for a moment in order to bring Kemetic or Egyptian Wicca into perspective. Tameran Wicca follows Wiccan principles (celebrating the Sabbats and Esbats, circle casting, herbs, spellwork, divination, and following the Wiccan Rede) as its basis while substituting, invoking, and evoking the Ancient Egyptian deities instead of, let us say, Celtic deities for example or Gaia (Mother Earth Goddess) and the Horned God Cernunnos (Father Earth or the Green Man) ideologies.
Kemetic Wicca focuses on the triadic relationship between Osiris, Isis, and Horus and their respective Cosmological Aeons in the following order—Isis (Auset), Osiris (Ausar), and Horus (Heru); its structure is based on that of the Ancient Egyptian religion as re-created in modern times with a blending of Wiccan practices and interaction with both the Khemetic and Wiccan divinities. Some pundits and practitioners feel that Tameran and Kemetic are one in the same; and some feel that Kemetic Wicca is an adaptation of the Gardnerian Tradition.
The inner vision, philosophy, theology, theosophy, and spirituality of the Temple of Kemetic Wicca (ToKW) ministry and circle (coven) are based on the reconstruction and re-creation ideologies of Ancient Egyptian Religion and Heka (Magick). Further, the Goddess Ma'at (the Lady) is our primary Divinity of devotion (i.e., following and living Her representation of truth, justice, and balance). This is accomplished in conjunction with the God Re (the Lord) and the Triadic Cosmological relationship between Auset, Ausar, and Heru. Traditionally, ToKW performs ancient spellwork, rituals, healing, divination (employing the Ancient Egyptian Cartouche), and conducts prayers and blessings as closely as possible in the manner in which the Ancient Egyptians priests, priestesses, and shamans might have done so.
Other divinities within and outside of the Ancient Egyptian Pantheon are invoked, evoked, and/or petitioned depending upon the situation at hand and our purposeful intent.
ToKW does not necessarily follow a specific Qabalistic (Kabbalistic), Hermetic, Isian, etc. model or incorporate any of these paths' elements and aspects per se in a strict sense. Although there are some similarity in our practices such as our Calling the Quarters (i.e., Opening by Watchtower, etc.) and Pentagram (LBRP, GBRP) and Hexagram (LBRH, GBRH) rituals. ToKW does incorporate several translations of the Book of the Dead, a.k.a. the Book of Coming Forth, (Dr. Raymond O. Faulkner's translation being one of them), other Ancient Egyptian text translations (including works by Diop, Breasted, Redford, etc.), and the Ancient Egyptian Festival Calendar with a serious blending of modern Wicca and historical (ancient) Witchcraft.

In the final analysis, there is an eclectic blending of certain aspects of Witchcraft, Wicca, and sometimes other earth-centered spiritualities because of the challenge factor mentioned above while making adjustments to one or the other religion based on purpose, intent, geographic location, time, or season of the year. This blending of Khemeticism with the Craft does consist of practices very similar to Tameran Wicca at times. Where ToKW differs is as follows: Celebration of the Sabbats and Esbats in conjunction with the Ancient Egyptian Festival Calendar (extremely challenging because of the seasonal variations and differences in astronomical, cosmological correspondences and associations); circle casting involving pentagrams, hexagrams, triangles, and pyramids; herbalism; spellwork; rituals (Charge of the God/dess, Drawing Down the Moon/Sun) involving the practice of Folk, Sympathetic, and Ceremonial Magick; and utilizing other divinatory tools. All oof the above is based upon the sole interpretation and religio-spiritual practices of the Temple of Kemetic Wicca.
