Consort of Ra and the many Hetherts
« on: February 05, 2019, 10:33:51 am »
Em hotep all! I’ve been feeling a very deep push to explore Hethert-Sekhmet and whether or not She could be seen as an “appropriate” consort of Ra? I was wondering if anyone had any information on this or other forms of Hethert Who could be seen this way? Thank you!

I think Hethert is generally considered to be Ra's daughter.

Having said that, I can't keep my brain wrapped around the relationships of the netjeru.  I wouldn't put it past Them to have an iteration where She's His wife instead.  But I'm not personally familiar with it.

So far I’m finding reference to Her as Mother, Daughter and Consort of Ra. It’s a bit difficult to figure out!

Em hotep nefer, Shediwi-Itw! :D

It's an "all of the above" situation. They are not mutually-exclusive relationships, and they aren't intended to be compartmentalized.

Hathor is presented as daughter and consort to the Universal Lord with some frequency.

It is a function of the Eye -- every Eye -- being inextricably "of" the God and "partner to" the God. And, at times, the role of the Eye gets tacitly rolled-into the prototypical function of Iusaas(-Nebethotepet), ALSO an Eye of Re, with respect to Atum -- Whom all Gods in the rôle of "Creator" are acting in the capacity of: "The Complete One."

Parallels exist between this sort of multifarious relationship and the one between Nit and Amun-Re; and Amunet and Amun-Re; and Aset and Min-Heru; etc. etc. etc.

I hope this helps!
