On the contrary, the pentacle does exist in Kemetic iconography. It is called 'seba' meaning "star". http://www.egyptianmyths.net/star.htm
Mwt Nisut Imakhu teaches how the pentagram is a Kemetic symbol here: http://www.truelivingwaters.org/Kemetic_Origin_Witch.html
Sopdet is the star of Aset. Satet wears the star on her head and the ancient Kemites built their whole calendar around the rising of Sopdet and the flooding of the Nile.
The chalice is a symbol of Nebt-Het (Nephthys). There are plenty of wand-carrying neteru in Kemetic art. Swords and daggers were also part of Kemetic life.
Ellen Cannon Reed did a pretty good job marrying Wiccan concepts to Egypt. To say that Wicca has no business adopting Egypt is like saying the Greeks had no business changing the Kemetic god names. It's been done.
My concern is whether people who work with the Kemetic gods fully understand what they're doing and are doing their homework, or are they working with the neteru because it's 'cool'. The same can be said for any pantheon that a Wiccan chooses to work with.
Em Khut en Mer (In Love and Light),
I didn't know that. I always looked at the stars that were painting on Egyptian walls and saw them as stars. What I'm more thinking about is the pentacles that are wore around Wiccans necks or on their altars. I think I'll do a hand drawn Egyptian star and hang it on my wall to remind me that one day I'll be joining the eternal stars.
I agree with you, it is dangerous. I'm going to do a altar update so that you guys can see what I've been doing. I've got a lot more statues now then I did some time ago and sorry guys for not being on, thought I was moving in April. However I'm moving but it maybe June or July.
