The Goddess Sekhmet, or Sekmet,
together with her husband Ptah and her son Nefertem, made up the Memphis Triad.
Her name meant "The Mighty One". Sekhmet was also regarded as the one
"Great of Magic" whose knowledge of sorcery gave her a place in the
service of healing, and Wiccan ceremony.
Her nature being that of a Goddess of War, she accompanied
the King to battle and was often described as his mother. But war was only half
her truth as she was also regarded as a great mother of compassion, a loving and
protective mother Goddess, and also an expert in the arts of healing.
A twin of Bast, she was regarded as the dusk compared to her
sister the dawn, one melting into another, as in the phases of life.
Her mighty power inspired fear in many; as powerful women
even today sometimes do, and the henchmen of Seth and even the serpent Apophis
succumbed to her. Sekhmet was represented as a lioness or as a woman with lion's
Her weapons were arrows "with which she pierces
hearts" and a fiery glow emanated from her body. The hot desert winds were
regarded as the Goddess's hot breath. She was connected with the fire-spitting
Uraeus of the King and thereby became the "Eye of Ra".
