We are keeping this community neat and clean! This is wonderful!
To try something different, a bit orderly, I have been posting up tags for each entry.
Just simple tags (nothing too complex to remember by), name of Goddess and/or who is She Goddess of. For examples to place down for tags, something such as this:
Goddess of Spring, Goddess of War, Mother Goddess, Earth Goddess, Isis, Aphrodite, Nymphs, Naiad, Nymphs of Waters.

In the end, every Goddess will be cared for, learned to those who are learning from the Goddesses, and all will be well.
Simple stuff, nothing at all complex with the change on this community. :)
Feel free to leave a tag or re-do a tag in anyway you believe is best, our sisters. If not, I can always make the tags. (You have options, my sisters!)

Wishing you all the best of holidays! ;)


Blessed it always be,
Rose & Lily Petals

Bast  

Copyright to http://www.bretsart.com/

Bast's most common depiction on temple walls is as a woman with the head of either a cat, a lion, or a large desert cat.

Bast is an Egyptian Goddess.
She originated from Lower Egypt, and was a sun goddess.
Originally depicted with a lionness head, she later became shown with a cats head, but was never shown fully as a woman.
Bast  was changed to a goddess of the moon by Greeks occupying Ancient Egypt toward the end of its civilization. In Greek mythology, Bast is also known as Aelurus, Bastet, and Ubastet.

Bast is one of several gods who are known as the "Eye of Ra", a title that denotes a god Who functions as a protector or avenger.
Since the earliest of times She has been associated with the king. Pyramid Texts 892 name Her next to the king as the, "Knowledge through which death cannot approach too closely." She also serves as his protector.

Bast is often shown holding the ankh or the papyrus wand, and sometimes the was-scepter (usually only in connection to Bubastis, which was the home of Her cult.
She is linked to fertility, and is often portayed with 3 kittens, protector of cats, mothers and new born babys. She is also linked to joy,dance, music and perfumes.

If you are interested in goddess worship; I hear Bast likes catnip, lapis lazuli, and classical music.
( but its better to ask for yourself!!)

Artemis / Αρτεμις


Greek goddess Artemis was born in Mount Cynthus at the island of Delos in Greece as a daughter of Zeus, the Ruler of the Greek gods and the mortal Leto. Artemis' twin brother was Apollo, the god of the Sun, whereas Artemis' cult was connected with the Moon.
As a child, Artemis had asked from her father Zeus to remain an eternal virgin and therefore became one of the three Virgin Goddesses in Greek mythology. Artemis had absolute sovereignty over nature and was said to bring fertility to all places that worshipped her. Usually accompanied by Nymphs and Oceanids, Artemis loved to hunt with arrows dipped in poison.

Artemis was usually armed with bow and arrows and was wearing a knee-high chiton.

Her symbol was the bow and her sacred animals were the snake and the deer.

Nymphs

By Sophie Anderson

The Nymphs were young goddesses of Nature-the sea, the land and the woods.

The Nymphs were the daughters of Zeus, the King of the gods. They ranged over beautiful groves and dwelled near springs, in mountains through which rivers flowed and in woods.

There were Sea Nymphs, Land Nymphs and Wood Nymphs in Greek mythology.

Because of their close connection to water, a fertilizing element, the nymphs were worshipped as daemons of fertility and vegetation.The nymphs protected the plants and animals and were also playing the role of nurses who occasionaly raised human beings.

The Nymphs were joining the Greek gods Artemis and Apollo and also Acheloos, the river god, and were playing with them. However, most of all, the Nymphs enjoyed playing with Hermes, the messenger of the gods and Hermes' son, the Satyr Pan.

Bastet


The ancient Egyptian goddess (roughly the Second Dynasty)
Bastet was protector of Ra (the sun), Pharaoh, and cats.


Cats in ancient Egypt were revered highly, partly due to their ability to combat vermin such as mice, rats - which threatened key food supplies - and snakes, especially cobras. Cats of royalty were, in some instances, known to be dressed in golden jewelry and were allowed to eat from their owners' plates.
In the temple at Per-Bast some cats were found to have been mummified and buried, many next to their owners. More than 300,000 mummified cats were discovered when Bast's temple at Per-Bast was excavated.
As divine mother, and more especially as protector, for Lower Egypt, Bastet became strongly associated with Wadjet, the patron goddess of Lower Egypt. She eventually became Wadjet-Bast, paralleling the similar pair of patron (Nekhbet) and lioness protector (Sekhmet) for Upper Egypt.
