Aug 23, 2013 Bastet



Today’s card is Bastet, the cat goddess. While some may think she is a small lesser goddess than Sekhmet the lioness, Bastet proudly asks you to consider that she was the protector of pharaoh, and thus of Egypt itself. Bastet is shown in tombs and scrolls as the defeater of Apep (Apophis), the serpent of destruction. Bastet asks you to look at your biggest fear. Is it something that can bring an end to the world if it should come to pass? She teaches that putting one’s fears under the bright light of direct consideration causes them to shrink and break up into little parts that can be handled until the problem is solved. So, get to work on those fears, chopping them up into little manageable bits! Then reward yourself with a cat nap.
