The Old Gods still walk among us. They are one by one seeing a resurgence in popularity. With shows such American Gods or books the ones from Rick Riordan such as the Percy Jackson Series or even Smite the popular video game, the Old Gods are around us once again.
Thoth is the Egyptian God of knowledge, wisdom, writing, magick and the Moon along with judgment of the dead.. His symbols are the the ibis of course, the moon disk, writing tablet, stylus and scales. Thoth is a self-created God and his consorts are Seshat, Ma’at and Nehmetawy. He was charged with maintaining the universe and is one of two Gods on the Barge with Ra. Thoth is credited with laying the cosmic egg that started the universe. Thoth’s role in the afterlife is to weigh the hearts of the dead against a feather. If they are lighter than the feather then they move on to the afterlife. If it is heavier they are fed to Apopis.
