Return of the Distant Goddess

In the Kemetic Orthodox tradition this day celebrates the Return of the Distant Goddess. This refers to Hethert (Hathor) who in the form of Sekhmet has traveled south in Her bloodthirsty rage. There are variations on the tale but in summary She is calmed and convinced to come back home. She is the Eye of Ra and therefore associated with the Sun.
You can read one of the stories at a fellow Shemsu's website: here

In modern times we can equate this with Yule in that the Sun is returning. In that we should make merry!

I hope everyone has a Blessed day no matter how you celebrate it. As for me I will be celebrating tomorrow evening.
