Bastet, goddess with the body of a woman and face of a cat swinging between good and bad tendencies, appears late in Egyptian religion, though the symbolism of the cat is prehistoric. The cat, with its affinity with the human, always gives a keen perception of the occult in its most anciens origin.

The importance accorded to the cat by the original inhabitants of the Valley of the Nile is linked directly to its spectral gaze which embodies the secret repository of a mysterious knowledge. Simply by its magnetic presence, it can detect and thwart any outside attack.

Aided by partisans loyal to his father, Horus conquered the invaded kingdom and, during the struggle, over-powered Seth in Nubia wich made him the first sovereign god of the greater unified Egypt. We see him still fighting, helped by his great love for justice.

During the battle with Seth, the stregth of Horus gave rise to the history of magnificent sovereings and of the power and protection derived from the gaze of "Udjat", the magic eye, plucked from Osiris and taken by Horus.

Mut is one of the most ancient divinities of the Egyptian pantheon. The epic of the ancient gods also includes the very popular goddess Isis, a saviour mother.

The waters of the nile and the burning sand of the Nubian desert are part and symbolic of this mother body.

According to Egyptian legend, the goddess Nut, in spite of the curse of sterility pronounced upon her by Ra, is able to bear Osiris thanks to the help of the god Thoth, who side-stepped his judgement by inventing five extra days in the year. Osiris is conceived during this period.

Assisted by Isis, his sister and wife, Osiris gives humans respect for the gods, instruction in agriculture and in the order of the universe.

As as symbol of continuity, this god, beloved to the people of the Nile becomes the object of tenacious jealousy by his young brother, Seth.

Sethm helped by his accomplices, succeeds in locking Osiris in a box that is quickly thrown into the currents of the river. Isis then recovers the body of her husband and, together with her sister Nepthys, use their magic breath to return Osiris briefly to the realm of the living for a final carnal unioin from which Horus is born.

But the rivalry continues to dominate Seth's heart adn he does everything possible to mutilate the body of his brother and disperse the corpse. In her second attempt, Isis collects the fragments scattered by this profane god, except for the penis that is swallowed by a mormyrid fish.

We find in the myth of Osiris the symbolic sequence of disintegration and regeneration in a higher form.

The most impressive of these mythical links is the one that ties him to the lioness goddess Sekhmet, who guards hell with strict equity and justice. It is not possible to recognize compassion or doubt in the character of Sekhmet. It is driven by the most mathematical sence of justice.

Thoth

Related signs: Bastet & Isis. Thoth

The sacred Ibis bird sways its silhouette on the banks of the river, where the Nile is extended by a striking monotony of irrigation channels.

It is with modesty that this bird-god Thoth provides ingenious ideas to the simple senses of humans and inspires their souls and energies with a passion to know and to build. Thoth's clear-sightedness drives away indolence, insidious cunning and impatient pride. Thoth's instruction induces people to invent and to risk breaking with tradition. Nature insists on producing enlightened masters who must serve her without pretensions in order to dominate her.

Thoth comes to us as a good-natured memory, keen to preserve wisdom and is patron of astronomers, accountants, healers and charmers. Thoth stands out from all the gods of ancient Egypt by best expressing the reliability of the creative word which he repeats tirelessly to all beings that bring fertility to the banks of the Nile.

Persons born under the sign of Thoth are enthusiastic and enterprising, but scorn mediocrity and meanness. They are courageous and like to take risks provided they are engaged in efforts that will ultimately allow them to surpass themselves. It is unthinkable for them to break their word or to cheat others.
