Khonsu is one of the most ancient Egyptian Gods of the Moon. His name means traveler reflecting the fact that the Moon travels across the night sky. Khonsu is also known as the Embracer, Pathfinder, and Defender, as he would watch over those who travel at night.
As the God of Light in the night, Khonsu was invoked to protect against wild animals, and aid with healing. The Bentresh Stele tells of a magical healing performed by Khonsu and his Oracle Statue.
On the night of the full moon, pray to Khonsu to help cultivate wisdom, increase healing powers, and protect the weak.
A Hymn to Khonsu
Hail unto thee, O Messenger of the Gods!
Khonsu, the traveler of the night sky,
Who traveleth through the heaven like Thoth.
Mut-Bast is thy mother
And Amen-Ra-Temu-Kephra is thy father,
Thou makest women fruitful,
And makest the human germ to grow
