Osiris was the god of fertility, agriculture, the afterlife, the dead, resurrection, life, and vegetation - a busy god. Classically, he is seen as a green-skinned god who has a pharaoh's beard, is partially wrapped like a mummy and wearing the symbolic atef crown, holding a symbolic crook and flail. Through the hope of new life after death, Osiris began to be associated with the cycles observed in nature. <br><br> Like Osiris, you are a constant source of renewal. You always find more love, kindness and imagination within you, like a spring that never goes dry. You love creativity, you feel as though you are a part of nature and the great cycle of life and humanity. You love animals and nature and in your heart of hearts you hope for an everlasting life after this one.
Perhaps the most important goddess of all Egyptian mythology, Isis assumed, during the course of Egyptian history, the attributes and functions of virtually every other important goddess in the land. Her most important functions, however, were those of motherhood, marital devotion, healing the sick, and the working of magical spells and charms. <br><br> Like Isis, you put great stock not only in family, but in self-sacrifice. You are always happy to help shoulder someone's burdens and offer help. In fact, we're willing to bet you've put other people's best before your own many times before. You feel a deep connection to nature and to the cycles of life and death it represents. You are also deeply spiritual, and there is, inside you, a place of wonder and magic you will never let go of.
According to legend, Anubis would weigh the heart of the deceased against the 'Feather of Truth'. If the heart was 'heavy with evil', it would weigh heavier than the feather. If the person was pure of heart, it would be lighter than the feather, buoyed by goodness. More than any other deity, Anubis is associated with the transfer from life to death, the judgement of your life and everything to do with tombs, graves and the underworld itself. <br><br> Anubis is a fascinating deity in the Egyptian pantheon. He seems to take too much on himself, like perhaps you do. He is most concerned with defending those that cannot be defended - the dead, and keeps watch over graves and cemetaries. Like him, you respect the cycle of life and death, and you find that your opinion carries much weight with others, so you try to give it carefully and when it's needed. You have done a lot in your life, and you're not shy about sharing your lessons.
Thoth was a deity of scribes and intellectuals. He was said to have been born from the skull of Set and the heart of Ra. According to legend, Thoth was the voice of Ra, the mightiest god, translating his indomitable will into words and commands. <br><br> Like Thoth, you have a great admiration for intelligence and logic. You know there is no problem that cannot be solved with some early thinking and pondering. Such is the way of all things, whether they be science, relationships or your work. You pride yourself on your sharp mind and wish nothing more than to develop it instead of losing it to boredom. That is why it's improtant you keep yourself stimulated as often as possible.
Horus is the son of the god Osiris and the goddess Isis. He is usually depicted with the head of a falcon. Horus was an extremely important god, and the Eye of Horus, also known as Wadjet or Udjat Eye, is a powerful Egyptian symbol of protection, wellbeing, and royal command. His right eye represents the sun while his left represents the moon. <br><br> Like Horus, you believe in the rule of law, justice and that the world must be protected from those who wish to destroy our society. Your goal is equilibrium; you want to heal, to reset, to return things to their natural place. This is a good attitude towards life, but what happens when change is necessary? Sometimes bending is better than breaking, and people like you must learn that before they commit to hopeless actions.
Amun-Ra is a little bit like a Zeus of the Egyptian pantheon. He is by far the most powerful. He used to be two separate gods: Amun and Ra, but around 11-16th centuries BC, he became one powerful entity. <br><br> Like Amun-Ra, you are a natural leader. When you speak, others listen, and if they don't, they often end up missing out on the most important part of the conversation. Like Amun-Ra, you bring light with you to any room you enter. You immediately take over as social leader, make people laugh and make sure everyone's having a good time. When someone is hurt or a fight breaks out, you are the first one there to arbiter between the two parties. In other words, you often put yourself at risks you don't have to. Remember that next time...
