Here is a ritual to the Egyptian god Tahuti also known as Thoth.
He is the self created Egyptian god of wisdom, science, the written word,
healing and  magick. Tahuti is the husband of the goddess Seshat
whose name literally means "She Who Writes."

We started with a discussion of who Tahuti is and what he does.
Some people have encountered as Thoth.

Now, with my partner Skybear, we move on to the Ritual:

Do Egyptian grounding and centering. 
Do the Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram. 
 
Kalimir: Bless people with Tahuti oil.
 
SKYBEAR: Bless people with Tahuti incense.
 
To the East, Make the Gesture:

Kalimir: "Hail unto thee whom art Ra in thy rising, even unto thee
whom art Ra in thy strength. Whom travelest over the heavens in
thy bark at the uprising of the sun. Tahuti standeth in his splendor
at the prow, and Ra-Hoor abideth at the helm. Hail unto thee from
the abodes of the night."
 
Make the Sign of the Ankh:
 
Kalimir: "Hail to the East, spring, the rising sun. Welcome Spring
and new budding life! Hail and welcome."
 
To the South, Make the Gesture:
 
Kalimir: "Hail unto thee whom art Het Heret in thy triumphing,
even unto thee whom art Het Heret in Thy beauty, who travelest
over the heavens in Thy bark at the mid course of the sun.
Tahuti standeth in his splendor at the prow and Ra-Hoor abideth
at the Helm. Hail unto thee from the abodes of the morning."

Make the Sign of the Ankh:
 
Kalimir: "Hail to the South, Summer, the solar noon, Welcome Summer
and the vigor of life! Hail and welcome!

To the West, Make the Gesture:

Kalimir: "Hail unto thee who art Tum in thy setting, even unto thee
who art Tum in thy joy. Who travelest over the heavens in thy bark
at the downgoing of the sun. Tahuti standeth in his splendor at the
prow and Ra-Hoor abideth at the helm. Hail unto thee from the abodes
of the day."
 
Make the Sign of the Ankh:
 
Kalimir: "Hail to the West, Autumn, the setting sun. Welcome autumn
and the maturity of life! Hail and welcome!

To the North, Make the Gesture:

Kalimir: "Hail unto thee who art Khepera in thy hiding, even unto thee
who at Khepera in thy silence. Who travellest over the heavens in thy
bark at the midnight hour of the sun. Tahuti standeth in his splendor
at the prow and Ra-Hoor abideth st the helm. Hail unto thee from the
abodes of the evening."
 
Make the Sign of the Ankh:
 
Kalimir: "Hail to the North, Winter, the midnight stars studded sky.
Welcome Winter and our ancestors. Hail and welcome!"

Skybear: "Dua Nef, Dua Ash, Dua Mu, Dua Ta."

Skybear: "Hail to Tahuti Ba" (raising his hands up)
"Hail to Tahuti Ab" (puting both hands to his chest)
"Hail to Tahuti Ka" (pointing his arms down, hands held horrizontal,
       palms flat facing the ground)
"Em hotep"
 
Skybear: "Praise Ra the sun god and Lord of The Boat of A Million Years.
Center of the universe and the center within us. Blessed is your light
and blessed is the life you give to all. Be praised Mighty Lord and
hail and welcome.

Kalimir: "Blessed are the wives of Tahuti Maat and Seshat. Praise be
to order, justice, learning, teaching, and balance.
 
Kalimir: "As it was in Khemenu let it be so now. I bring forth the
sacred temple of Tahuti, Thrice Great, Lord of the Caduceus,
Lord of Mercury and the moon. Self-created first minister of Ra.
Sacred Ibis and sacred baboon. We honor you, Lord of science,
Lord of wisdom, Lord of medicine, Lord of reason, Lord of the mind,
Lord of words, Lord of writing, Lord of the arts, Lord of Magic and
spells, Lord of reason, Lord of organization, Lord of inventors,
Lord of literature, Lord of communication, Lord of trickery,
Lord of the tarot and divination, Lord of alchemy, Lord of true will,
Lord of records, Lord whole knows the truth, Tongue of Ra, Mind of Ra,
Lord of so many things. I call you to this your temple. Hail and welcome!"
 
Skybear "Repeat after me. Hail Lord Tahuti, whom we invoke. Guide me
in my lifes journey. I shall continue my search for spirituality and
wisdom. Be it so ordained in the name of Ra."
 
Kalimir leads the pathworking. When the people are in the cosmic center
beyond the stars. She describes a nebula. She does the invocations
to Tahuti.....
 
Kalimir: "Repeat this invocation of Tahuti after me. I invoke Tahuti,
Lord of Wisdom and Utterence the god that cometh fourth from the veil.
O Thou! Majesty of Godhead! Wisdom crowned Tahuti! Lord of the gates
of the Universe! Thee, thee I invoke. O thou of the ibis head.
Thee, thee I invoke! Thou who wieldest the Wand of Double Power!
Thee, thee I invoke! Thou who bearest in thy left hand the Rose
and the Cross of Light and Life. Thee, thee I invoke! Thou, whose head
is an emerald and thy nemmes as the night sky blue! Thee, thee I invoke!
Thou, whose skin is of flaming orange as though it burned in a furnace!
Thee, thee I invoke!"

Kalimir: "The nebula begins to expand and contract and it begins
to flash. Out of this nebula steps a figure. This is Tahuti. He takes
a shape of a man with an Ibis head. Know that seeing him will enrich
your life in some way. Maybe he has a gift for you, he may have something
to tell you, he may even grant you a wish. Take this short time to
commune with this great god."

PAUSE, PAUSE, PAUSE
 
Kalimir: "Tahuti tells you that when ever you have need of me invoke me."

Kalimir: "It is now time to thank Tahuti. Tahuti gives you his blessings
and returns back to the nebula."
 
Kalimir leads the people back from the meditation.
 
Skybear passes out the cups and pours the ritual drink.
 
Kalimir: "Let us take communion with Tahuti. Pour a little of your drink
onto the Earth onto Geb. Drinks the rest for your self."

Kalimir: "Hail to Tahuti Lord of the macrocosm. Hail Tahuti Lord of the
microcosm. We thank you mighty lord whom is self created and who is like
the Ibis. ALL HAIL TAHUTI!"
 
Kalimir: "Em hotep to the seven directions. Amen Re Hotep! Dua Netjeru.
Dua Neter Tahuti."
 
Kalimir releases the elements starting in the North and ending in the East.
