Introduction to the Series

According to the Emerald Tables of Thoth – he was the founder of the culture in Kemet (the Black Land) which the Greek later called Egypt. Along with Thoth came other Netjeru – “guardians” or “watchers” – who we in our culture normally call Gods. What we must understand is, that they originally worked among the citizens of Kemet and that the first Pharaohs were descendants of those “Gods”.

Kemet was divided into two main parts:

of those “Gods”. Kemet was divided into two main parts: • Lower Egypt ( 6666 ¯¯µ¯¯µµµ

Lower Egypt (6666¯¯µ¯¯µµµ¤¤é¤¤ééé - Ta Mehu) - mainly the Delta - from Memphis [Mennefer] to the Mediterranean Sea with 20 provinces (nomes). Among the symbols of Ta Mehu was the bee (bit - Ó), the red crown (desret - ÖÖÖÖ) and the Snake-deva (Wadjet - ÇÇÇÇ).

Upper Egypt Nildalen (6666ññññÀÀÀÀ¤¤¤¤>>>> - Ta Shemau) mainly the Nile Valley but also the desert areas around it with 22 provences. Among the symbols of Ta Shemau were the rush (su - ðððð), the white crown (hedjet - ÔÔÔÔ) and the vulture-deva (Nekhbet - dddd).

The ancient Egyptians believed in many different “gods” and “goddesses”. Each one of them with their own role to play - maintaining prosperity, peace and harmony across the land. But each of those 42 provinces had their own favourites and it was not quite the same belief system all over the two countries – ruled under the double crown.

all over the two countries – ruled under the double crown. Some gods and goddesses took

Some gods and goddesses took part in creation, some brought the flood every year, some offered protection, and some took care of people after they died. Others were either local gods who represented towns, or minor gods who represented plants or animals. The ancient Egyptians believed that it was important to recognise and worship these gods and goddesses so that life continued smoothly.

The worshipping of the “gods” and “goddesses” varied over the four most important historical periods:

1. The Old Kingdom (3rd–6th Dynasties) came after the Protodynastic Period (Apprx. 3100 - 3000 BCE) and the Early Dynastic Period (1st–2nd Dynasties). The Old Kingdom is best known for the large number of pyramids, which were constructed – the first one being the Step Pyramid in Memphis' necropolis, Saqqara.

2. The Middle Kingdom (12th–13th Dynasties) came after the First Intermediate Period (7th–11th Dynasties) and was again a good period for Kemet, but again decay started and the Hyskos took advantage of that.

3. The New Kingdom (18th–20th Dynasties) came after the Second Intermediate Period (14th–17th Dynasties) and could be called the “Golden Ages” of Egypt. Here we find the most famous Pharaohs - Hatshepsut, Akhenaton, Tutankhamon, Amenhotep III, Seti I, Ramesses II ("the Great") and Ramesses III.

Hathor - Goddess of Love and Music

When you are attuned to the energies of the Goddess Hathor, you will have access to her attributes, as set out below.

Hathor was a goddess of many things, among them she was a:

Celestial goddess: The Mistress of Heaven

Goddess of love, music and beauty: the Goddess of Love, Cheerfulness, Music, and Dance,

Goddess of women, fertility, children and childbirth. The Mother of Mothers, the Celestial Nurse,

Goddess of destruction and drunkenness: The Vengeful Eye of Ra, the Lady of Drunkenness,

Goddess of the dead: Lady of the West

The reason that she has so many names, one would assume, is because she is an ancient goddess - she seems to have been mentioned as early as the 2nd Dynasty. She may even been associated with the Narmer palette - although the two human faced bovines may also have been a representation of the king.

Hathor was also known as the "Great Menat". The menat, a necklace with a special counterweight, is not actually jewelry - it is a musical instrument – also sacred to Hathor! The counter piece is similar to the fertility dolls found in ancient tombs, while the beaded necklace was believed to represent the womb. It was held in the hand and rattled to convey the blessing of the goddess.

She was the patron of dancers and was associated with percussive music. Many of her priests were artisans, musicians, and dancers who added to the quality of life of the Egyptians and worshipped her by expressing their artistic natures. Hathor was the incarnation of dance and sexuality and was given the epithet "Hand of God" (refering to the act of masturbation) and "Lady of the Vulva". One myth tells that Ra had become so despondent that he refused to speak to anyone. Hathor (who never suffered depression or doubt) danced before him exposing her private parts, which caused him to laugh out loud and return to good spirits.

Hathor was also the "Lady of Greenstone and Malachite" and "Lady of Lapis-Lazuli, and Tur- quoise”, presiding over these materials as well as being a goddess of the fringes where they were mined.

Malachite is a banded light and dark green semi- precious stone that was ground up and mixed with eye make-up in Kemet.

Lapis-lazuli adorned many pieces of ancient Egyptian jewelry.

As "the Mistress of Turquoise" and the "lady of Malachite" she was the patron of miners and the goddess of the Sinai Peninsula (the location of the famous mines). The Egyptians used eye makeup made from ground malachite which had a protective function (in fighting eye infections) which was attributed to Hathor.

This is perhaps why she was also known as the "Lady to the Limit" - the Egyptians believed her to be a goddess who ruled over the known universe!

As the "Lady of the West" and the "Lady of the Southern Sycamore" she protected and assisted the dead on their final journey. Trees were not common- place in ancient Egypt, and their shade was welcomed by the living and the dead alike. She was sometimes depicted as handing out water to the deceased from a sycamore tree

The Milky Way was seen as a waterway in the heavens, sailed upon by both the sun deity and the king, leading the ancient Egyptians to describe it as The Nile in the Sky. Due to this, and the name mehturt, she was identified as responsible for the yearly inundation of the Nile.

Another consequence of this name is that she was seen as a herald of imminent birth, as when the amniotic sac breaks and floods its waters, it is a medical indicator that the child is due to be born extremely soon.

Another interpretation of the Milky Way was that it was the primal snake, Wadjet, the protector of Egypt who was closely associated with Hathor and other early deities among the various aspects of the great mother goddess, including Mut and Naunet.

Hathor was also favored as a protector in desert regions.

She was a sky goddess, known as "Lady of Stars" and "Sovereign of Stars" and linked to Sirius (and so the goddesses Sopdet and Isis). Her birthday was celebrated on the day that Sirius first rose in the sky (heralding the coming innundation). By the Ptolemaic period, she was known as the goddess of Hethara, the third month of the Egyptiancalendar.

As the goddess of beauty and patron of the cosmetic arts, her traditional votive offering was two mirrors and she was often depicted on mirrors and cosmetic palettes. Yet she was not considered to be vain or shallow, rather she was assured of her own beauty and goodness and loved beautiful and good things.

own beauty and goodness and loved beautiful and good things. She was known as "the Mistress

She was known as "the Mistress of Life" and was seen as the embodiment of joy, love, romance, perfume, dance, music and alcohol. Hathor was especially connected with the fragrance of myrrh incense, which was considered to be very precious and to embody all of the finer qualities of the female sex.

Iconography

Generally, Hathor was pictured as a woman with cow's horns with a solar disc between them (giving her the title of 'Golden One'), or as a beautiful woman with cow's ears, or a cow wearing the sun disk between her horns, or even as a lioness or a lion- headed woman showing her destructive side. It was only in later Egyptian history that she was shown as a woman with the head of a cow.

Perhaps one of the main cult objects associated with Hathor was the sistrum, a musical rattle. Its name is derived from the Greek, seiein, meaning "to shake". She often is seen carrying this ancient musical instrument played by the priestesses. The sistrum usually had the face of Hathor where the handle adjoins the rest of the instrument. This particular instrument was thought to have sexual overtones, relating to fertility.

The sound of the sistrum is metallic, produced by a number of metal disks or squares, strung onto a set of transverse bars, set horizontally into a frame of varying design. Its sound was thought to echo that of a stem of papyrus being shaken. However, the acoustic effects were frequently extremely limited. The sistrum was suitable for beating a rhythmical accompaniment in open-air processions.

Family relations

Hathor was the consort of Horus, and their son was Ihy. The 3 of them makes out the Dendara and Edfu Triad – Father Horus, Mother Hathor and the son Ihy.
