37 Sobek and 55 Auset

 

Sobek

Sobek – encircling

While the crocodile god, Sobek, and the queen of the gods of Ancient Egypt, Auset (Isis) may seem to have little to do with each other, look at the way both of them take care of their young. Crocodiles, like Sobek, are excellent parents, protecting both the eggs and the young when they are hatched, sometimes making a circle around them by putting their nose to tail. While Auset has only one child instead of many, the mythology of Ancient Egypt shows she had to protect Heru (Horus) from his uncle Set as well as from the dangerous scorpions that were in the marshes where she was hiding. If you are needing protection in any way, allow the God of your understanding to surround you, like Sobek, and to nurture you, like Auset.
