    Hello all. I hope everyone is well.

    1st, I would like to say thanks
    to the admin for granting me membership.

    Thank you.

    I need some advice
    on which books out there
    are the most accurate on egyptian magic/religion
    from a black perspective (without [email protected] undertones, if possible).

    Most of the books I have are written by white people
    who are just regurgitating other peoples stuff,
    or they are channelling it, etc…

    The other books I have are by black people who,
    imo, are exploitative or a little narrow:
    Like one guy copies the asanas in hatha yoga & calls it egyptian yoga,
    another guy has a tree of life type thing but the only way to learn it is to buy it, etc…

    spirituality costs lots of money…funny concept….

    I have been studying metaphysics for over 30 years
    (real astrology, tarot, ceremonial magick, enochian magick,
    buddhism, real yoga, taoism, qabalah, alchemy, etc..)…

    & just an fyi, I am black…

    I hope that no one misunderstands my post & takes offense.
    I surely meant no offense at all.

    The moon is in scorpio
    & mercury is retrograde, so that’s why I am saying this…

    thanks in advance for any help you all can give.

    LVX,
    Bak

    p.s.
    what do you think about the website: the house of netjer?

    it’s not run by black people…that’s why I am asking…

    also, what about rosemary clark? She thinks the egyptians were asian…

    Peace and Greetings.

    Check the site for the Metu Neter forums.

    Moon in Scorpio. Mercury in Retrograde.

    Mercury (Thoth) which represents Widsom in retrograde.

    Thanks for that. Im slipping because I havent been reading charts for the past two months but knew something is going on.

    For years I also have been loking for books on Egyptian/Kemetic magic not written by Europeans. So I started reading pyramid and coffin texts and taking formulas and incantations from there but then those are usually writted in english and I dont know how to decipher Meroitic.

    Peace.

    For the last two years I have been focusing on Sidereal. If you check the Astrology forums there is a thread on Sidereal Astrology.

    oh, it was a thread. sorry about that.

    i thought you said a sidereal astrology board.

    i also, like you said on that thread, don't do readings online anymore.

    way too much to write...

    before i retired, i was a professional vedic astrologer
    but i did use tropical astrology's symbolic zodiac for psychological issues.

    thank you again,
    bak
