Ancient Egyptian

This is a Living Page, more Information will be added as it comes to Mind(s)!*

  • Anubis; Anpu

Domain : The Underworld, Anubis is the King of the Underworld after all!

Anubis is the only child of Osiris & Nepthys as well as bore a child of his own with his female counterpart Anput, her name is Kebechet (Qebhet). Kebechet is known to bring fresh, pure waters for the souls of the dead to drink from & is often referred to as a Serpentine Goddess of ‘Freshness’.

A Romanized Anubis

Anubis presides over Funerary Prayer, Embalmings, the Dead & is eventually overshadowed by Osiris. His favored weapon, the Flail (an important symbol/tool in Ancient Egypt, usually paired with a Crook read more here).

  • Min
Min receiving ‘Libations’

Min is a fertility god well as the god of harvest. As we can see, he stands fully erect with his flail in hand, raised above his head. In the photo above, a Pharaoh pours Min a libation (the act of pouring a drink as an offering to a deity, or homie) with his right hand & holds burning incense with his left.

  • Neith
My personal favorite depiction found on Occult World.

Goddess of War & Wisdom, Hunting, Weaving & Creation.

Often portrayed nursing Crocodiles, sometimes with Green Skin herself. As a Primordial Goddess she bares the title of The Oldest One. As a star filled sky is more sure than Day.

Her Epithet, associates her with Anubis & Wepwawet as it reads the “Opener of the Ways”. She is also one of four Goddesses to guard one’s Canopic Jars (alongside Serqet/Selket, Isis, Nephthys).

She is an ancient goddess. She bore Ra ‘before childbirth existed’.

  • Nut; Nuite

Depicted as a Woman bent over the Sky with her Feet to the East, facing the West. As well as a Celestial Cow.

Nut is the Sky Goddess from which All can come into being.

Nuit being the the French word for night is the most appropriate nod the this Divine Sky Goddess of the Ancients & therefore our Ancestors.

Daughter of Shu; God of Vital Breath & Tefnut; Goddess of Heat, who are the offspring of Ra himself (along with ShuTefnutHathorSekhmetMafdetBastetSatetAnhurMa’atMut).

Wife of the Earthly deity Geb

Together they conceived OsirisIsisSet, and Nephthys.

All 9 Gods previously mentioned make up the Ennead. Worshipped at Heliopolis, The City of the Sun.

Some of Her titles include : ‘She who gives Birth to the Gods’, ‘She who holds 1,000 Souls’, ’She who holds the Stars in her hair’, ‘She who protects’, & ‘Mistress of All’.

Associations : They Sky & her Stars, Mothers, Coffins, Sarcophagi 

  • Sekhmet
A gorgeous example of two depictions found on The Collector

The ‘Beloved of Ptah‘ & Mother of Nefertum (just a heads up, Bast is sometimes given this title too).

Her name meaning ‘The Powerful One’ is a Goddess of Illness & War as well as a Daughter of Ra/Re. Thus, a Goddess of Healing. With the Body of a Female & the head of a lion, she is as fierce as she is protecttive. When satisfied, life & health are balanced, at peace. Almost as she is often represented : Appeased & calmy seated. When dissatisfied, chaos. Physicians were often referred to as ‘Priests of Sakhmet’ due to her association with healing & many of our surviving statues depicting Sekhmet are from the time & from the funerary temple of Amenhotep III.

  • Selket; Selquet; Serket

The “Lady of the Beautiful Tent / House” is associated not only with the scorpion (in which she if often adorned & assumes form such as in the photo below) but also is one of the four protective funerary goddesses whom which together guard the canopic jars.

Selket in Scorpion Form

She is known to protect against scorpion as well as snake bites, however, can also call unto them to ensure success in her bidding.

Much like the iconic duo Nepthys & Isis, Selket can often be found with Neith.

  • Thoth
The Ibis headed Thoth

God of the Moon, as his Ibis beak is reminiscent of a crescent moon. The god of knowledge, writing & wisdom, magick, science. The god of judgment. We can see this judgment take place below as Anubis weighs the heart of the deceased against the weight of a feather to gauge if worthy to enter into the Afterlife.

Syncretized – Hermes Trismegustis or Hermes Thrice Great / Blessed, his Greek equivalent. Mercury being the Roman.

Possibly Thoth the ‘Atlantean’, Author of The Emerald Tablets of Thoth, I would love to know more about this for I am not too familiar with what is what & what is not*
