The Tao of Thoth: The Eight Tenets

Thoth's Egyptian name is Djehuty meaning “he who is like the ibis.” The ibis was a sacred bird in ancient Egypt associated with wisdom. The ibis is active in the day and the night and Thoth is of the world of the living and the world of the dead. The curved beak of the Ibis is reminiscent of a crescent Moon and Thoth is a lunar god frequently depicted with a Moon disc above his head. Thoth was known as Lord of Khemenu, of which there was a city with the same name being the center of his worship. Khemenu means City of Eight. The Greeks later referred to the city as Hermopolis and adopted Thoth Energy in Hermes. Later the Roman archetype of Thoth energy was named Mercury.
