G.B. Marian's In the Desert of Set




Praise the Red Lord
“The rest of the world may curse Your names, but I give You praise, for I know that nothing—not even the Creator—can exist without You, save for the accursed Serpent.”

Set is a Savior, Not a Devil
“If Big Red is ‘Satanic’ when it’s between Him and Osiris and/or Horus, then He’s really quite Christian when it’s between Him and Apep.”

Seven Steps For a Setian Ritual
“These steps are not intended to be lauded as ‘dogma’ by anyone, but are offered here as a starting point for newcomers who have no idea how to even begin.”

Set’s Sacred Critters
“What better totem animal to represent the mighty Red Lord than a floppy-eared underdog that refuses to be bossed around (and that’ll crush your skull with its hind legs if you even dare to try)?”

An Execration Ceremony
“Now it was time to conjure the dragon and kill it together as a tribe—as a constellation brought together by Set from across the Earth.”

An Astral Pilgrimage
“Should you wish to divine some kind of message, you might respectfully request that Set reveal some mystery to you. If He agrees, you just might hear whispers coming from the statue’s mouth....”

Happy Egyptian New Year!
“There are all kinds of ways to celebrate Egyptian New Year, but being outdoors and beneath the stars with a bunch of woodland critters is my personal favorite.”

Set and the Greek Typhon: Are They the Same?
“So are Set and Typhon one and the same entity? Pan-culturalists might say ‘Yes,’ and hard polytheists might say ‘No’—but who can ever know for sure?”

My Daily Prayers
“O Divine Foreigner! O Bringer of Storms! We bid You, come forth from Your Desert above and greet us as Your servants and friends!”

The Many Names of Set
“The following is my attempt at explaining what some of Big Red’s names actually mean (or at the very least, what they mean to me personally).”

A Typhonian Soteriology
“When we perform this Great Work, we are saving our own little parts of the world. With our Holy Father, salvation becomes a team effort; our victories are His, and His victories are ours!”

Khepesh: The Holy Iron of Set
“Just as the sacramental bread and wine at a Catholic mass can become the actual body and blood of Christ, so too can people and objects with Typhonian properties be “filled” with the force of Khepesh.”
