One of my favorite things about doing Ancient Calendar is that I get to educate myself on a God/Goddess or Legend not on the latest of trends. Today is a good example. And on this day in Ancient History, I give to you…MIN.
Now while we may know the classic Egyptian stories and names of Isis, Osiris, Thoth, Ra, and some others, Min may be one that bogs the mind. However, today was said to be the DAY the Egyptian god Min made his grand appearance in the skies of Egypt. So maybe we should have a brief study of him now.
In short, Min’s tale began in a much more earlier Egypt, and he became famous or important, because he represented fertility. He was often depicted in statues and paintings with an erection, while his spread arms created the shape of a V. Remember, the V shape came to represent women, their sacred sex, and so on.
Now, unlike many other deities who later came and concentrated on WOMEN being given the powers to conceive, Min was quite different. Egyptians, in their grand wisdom, must have realized that the problem with those who are childless may not always be the fault of the woman….
So Min was there to offer MEN his aid with his divine sexual powers of fertility. Men of Egypt knew that Min was in their corner, having the power they needed to make heirs, and that is always important. *winks*
Hope you enjoyed today’s Ancient Calendar…
