Offerings for Anubis

Anubis’ sacred plant is the cypress, a tree that Greeks as well as the Egyptians associated with death and mourning. Cypress oil is a great offering, and burning it during ritual is very effective. He prefers strong incense, especially myrrh, cedarwood, and the traditional frankincense. Beer and bread is the standard offering to pretty much any Egyptian God, and He will accept it, but I’ve discovered that He likes strong liqueur, especially rum, much better. Cool water, the traditional Egyptian drink of the dead, is also a good libation. More than one modern Kemetic says He seems to likes spicy food and dark, bitter chocolate.

As a way-walker along the lines of Hekate and Hermes, He likes locks and keys. I’m told by a Kemetic that hematite, obsidian, and tiger’s eye are the stones He likes. His colors are black and gold, and in fact He is sometimes called The Black and Gold God. Since Sirius is His star, images of stars of other celestial phenomenon would be very appropriate. The number nine is possibly sacred to Him, as He was known for defeating the Nine Bows of Egypt.

But don’t forget to honor Him with Your actions. Honor the dead and your ancestors. Leave flowers on a stranger’s grave. Practice some kind of divination or magic, even if it is only privately. Support causes that help orphans and the homeless. Act as a guide to others in some way.

    I worship Anubis and Diana (which are two different pantheons and it’s weird but it’s what I do) and I found some stuff to honor Diana and small acts of devotion for her and stuff, so I thought I’d make her a little offering jar to take with me to college with stuff like honey and pine needles (because that’s what she likes) and I didn’t even know where to look for Anubis but HERE IT IS

    • You’re very welcome! I’m glad my blog is helping people out with their worship! That’s a big reason I do this. I’ve fallen behind on writing new posts because of Life Stuff (TM), but it’s still really nice to hear feedback like this.

  2. I just came across this blog and I wanted to thank you for writing this. I worship Anubis and Isis and your blog has been extremely helpful to me in adding to my BOS. Again, thanks a lot for your hard work!
    Blessed Be.

    Thank you- I recently connected with Anubis’s energy. I more recently have been called to cemeteries and have a better understanding of why I am doing these things I am doing. His energy flows through me. I am honoured.
