Today we have the elder of the gods, Heru Wer (Horus the Elder), a wise man like Merlin is to the Celtic culture. With him comes Bastet, the cat goddess known for her playfulness and affection. Both these deities were very popular for their connection with daily life. Every village has its wise elders, and every family knew about the ways of cats. Together they tell you that lessons may come from seemingly unrelated sources: a wiseman or a cat. Both are equally independent and think for themselves. If either attempt to get your attention, you can be sure it will be worthwhile to listen and receive whatever they have to show or to teach you.
