Anubis – 2013

For Between the Worlds 2013, our patron god was Anubis, Egyptian god of the dead and funerary rites. He is in particular associated with the “weighing of the heart” the dead are expected to undergo in Duat (the Egyptian underworld) where their worthiness is judged, giving him the title “Guardian of the Scales.” Follow the “end of the world” in 2012, the Between the Worlds community looks to honor the god associated with the journey into the afterlife and the weighing of men’s hearts against the feather of Ma’at, representing cosmic or universal justice.
