That is certainly a lot of goddesses who act as Eyes! More than I even expected to be honest haha

While reading Isis Magic: Cultivating a Relationship With the Goddess of 10,000 Names by M. Isidora Forrest, I found a quote you all might find interesting!

Mehet-Weret means 'Great Flood.' As the Lady of the Celestial Flood of which the earthly flood was a reflection, Mehet-Weret is dangerous, mysterious, and life-giving. For while the inundating flood of the Nile was both invoked and welcomed, it could also produce anxiety. Would the flood be enough? Would it be too much? Will we have enough to eat, or will we hunger? As Great Flood, Mehet-Weret controls the destiny of Egypt. She is the food-giver. As Celestial Flood, She is the waterway of Heaven upon which the Deities guide Their boats each day. She is the primal waters out of which She Herself brings the Heavenly bodies. Like Hathor, Mehet-Weret mothers the Sun God and raises Him into the sky between Her horns.

Wow!! That's super interesting :O thank you for sharing!

I know close to nothing about Nit, but now I think I'll have to do some exploring on her role as Nit-as-Mehet-Weret! Truly an expansive goddess  ;D

Since she is associated with so many Eyes of Ra, could Mehet Weret also be considered an Eye? Sometimes I feel like all goddesses are Eyes lol  :P

What a beautiful description, Taswauyinepu! I can completely agree that Mehet Weret is more of a "blue warm" than a "red warm", in contrast to Hethert by herself. She feels more... ethereal and mysterious, much like the vastness of the universe: mostly unknown but so entrancing. In comparison to Hethert, who I get more as a fiery, yet warm, energy, Mehet Weret is more cool.

And that's interesting, Asethepetwi! I wonder if there is any connection there.

I also get Hethert as all of her facets, except for perhaps as Sekhmet, Tai'awepwawet. Chase those pings!! See what she wants :P

Thank you for your replies!

That's really fascinating!! I didn't know she was associated with so many goddesses. I suppose it does make sense, due to all the assimilations between the different goddesses and the syncretisms in antiquity.

I definitely agree that she emanates a primordial feel, almost like Sobek-Ra in a way. She also feels very royal, perhaps because of the Aset side of her.

It's a bit overwhelming with so many Netjer all packed into one goddess 😅 You get so many sides of the different Netjeru involved!

Em hotep!

Does anyone here work with (or have worked with) Mehet Weret? Is she simply Hethert-Nut, or are they different? What is she like? What sort of things do you offer her (including UPG)?

Thank you!  ;D

Greetings!  ;D

Call me Sunny! I'm a Kemetic who's remained solitary for about three years now, but I signed up for the beginner's course hopping to gain a new perspective on Kemeticism. I love making new friends so please message me if you want to chat! I primarily work with Hethert and I love talking about her too  :D
