Goddess Of The Taurus Full Moon: Het- Heru (Hathor)
Het- Heru (Hathor), is the beautiful, nurturing cow-headed goddess of Egypt. She is the oldest goddess of Beauty, music, dancing, wine, joy, and love. Het-Heru can be found throughout other cultures under such names as Venus, Aphrodite, Oshun.
Her energy is ever present for all of those who are born under the sun sign of Taurus and Libra. She is the patron goddess of women and beauty, Hathor presides over the sacred feminine arts of adornment, enchantment, and lovemaking.
In her ancient role as sky goddess she is the primeval waters or womb of space. In her form as the celestial cow that nourishes all creation with stars on her belly, horns of the crescent moon and a solar disk on her head, Hathor is and forever will be the ‘mother of the light’ and the ‘golden one’.
"As the ’beautiful one’, ‘ mistress of the vagina’, goddess of love, motherhood and female sexuality, Hathor is a quintessential Alchemical/Tantric Goddess whose priestesses were schooled in the sacred feminine arts of adornment and lovemaking. They are often shown holding a mirror with Hathor’s face carved on its handle. The mirror has many symbolic meanings. At first glance, it represents beauty, and the art of adornment. However, its meaning and usage go much deeper. It is both a tool for perceiving the inner working of the mind and a symbol for the act of self-observation. In ancient Egypt, it was used by the priestesses in magical practices for sending back negative energies to their source, as well as a medium for seeing through time, space and the more subtle dimensions of reality. While gazing into its depths, they would expand their awareness to journey from the earth to the stars and from the outer material form to the inner spiritual essence." - Jeremy Naydler, Temple of the Cosmos
"The Goddess Frees me from all attachments to people, places, and things. Everyone and everything who is not a part of my perfect life plan now releases me."
