Bastet: Goddess Of Protection

In ancient Egypt, if you were a woman wishing for children, you may have been inclined to wear an amulet featuring the Goddess, Bastet. On your amulet, a number of kittens would have sat at Bastet’s feet depicting your desired number of children. But why kittens? Bastet was highly regarded as a great mother, and known as the Goddess of Protection – two traits recognized by the ancient Egyptians in cats. But that wasn’t the only reason for the connection.

Bastet wasn’t always known as she is seen here with her cat-like features. Before the unification of Egypt, Bastet was known in Lower Egypt as the Goddess of Warfare, with the head of a lion. While at the same time Sekhmet held the position as the Lioness Deity in Upper Egypt. But unlike other deities, Sekhmet and Bast (as she was known then) never unified, but instead formed their own identities. By the 22nd Dynasty (c 945 – 715 BC), Bast had transformed to Bastet, from Goddess of Warfare, to Goddess of Protection and her lioness features became softer, like a cat.

Teeming with feminine energy, Bastet became the Goddess of all things feminine, including the home, dance, pleasure, sexuality, fertility, family, pregnancy and children. But Bastet also possessed the eye of Ra and is also known as the Goddess of fire, and sunrise. Although gentle and protective, one would be cautious about angering her, as she was capable of becoming a fierce lioness once again.

And of course, she was the Goddess and protector of cats.

COMING SOON, in all her feline glory in solid .925 silver. You’ll find her holding the sacred Ankh in her right hand, a symbol of life, and a charm for good luck. She stands poised atop an ancient staircase, carved with hieroglyphs, including the popular Scarab, symbolizing great power. Not just for lovers of Egyptian collectibles, Bastet eagerly awaits all “crazy cat ladies”, and those seeking protection or feminine energy for their home or office… she may even bring new life to your family!
