Hathor

Egypt

Hathor, a nourishing great mother goddess, is the Egyptian mother of all gods and goddess, the queen of the heavens; the sun emerges from her womb and the moon from her breast. She is the goddess of love, mirth, beauty, and sensual pleasure, as well as the protectress of all women.

In her other guise, shown here, she is lady of the night and queen of the underworld. With her lion's head, Hathor assumes the role of destroyer and giver of death. In her leopard skin she is the goddess of fate and fortune and typifies the ferocity and swiftness of this animal, a night prowler and watcher. Hathor is a strong embodiment of the many sides of existence. Creator, sustainer, destroyer, she encompasses all. Hathor reminds us that we, too, must acknowledge all parts of ourselves, that we might call destructive is sometimes necessary to allow our creativity and compassion to flourish.

Hathor is a love and fertility goddess who helps bring soulmates together, oversees conception, portests pregnant mothers, and helps will all concerns regarding children and child rearing.

Call on Hathor for help with artistic projects; beauty, attractiveness, and cosmetics; celebrations, music, parties, and dancing; all concerns about children; decision making; and finding your soul mate.

The stone associated with Hathor is Chalcedony.
