HetHert and the Moon...
« on: August 26, 2019, 10:52:07 am »
Are there any connections between HetHert and the moon?

I am probably not the best to answer this, so hopefully others will jump in and give more info than I can remember off the top of my head :)

Short answer: No. Hethert (and most of the female Names) is an Eye of Ra, and thus a solar deity. The God with the biggest connection to the moon would be Djehuty (there are others as well, though, but all that are coming to mine are male, not female).

Long answer: I'll leave that to the more scholarly members who can pull up references in books and such :P

Hope this helps you!

I was trying to think of lunar deities too and I also only came up with males.  Djehuty, Khonsu, Iah.

Now, Bast during the Hellenistic period was syncretized with Artemis and underwent a bit of a lunar transformation.

But I don't think Hethert did that.  She was syncretized more with Aphrodite who isn't lunar either.

My personal experience of Hethert is very sunny and fiery, but I also feel that she’s got a good working relationship with Djehuty (again, that’s my personal take), so maybe if Hethert is inspiring moony feelings, Djehuty is lurking nearby?
Look out the window. And doesn't this remind you of when you were in the boat, and then later that night you were lying looking up at the ceiling, and the water in your head was not dissimilar from the landscape, and you think to yourself Why is it that the landscape is moving but the boat is still?

I agree with the Hethert/Eye of Ra thing in general, but I do feel, for some odd reason, that Hethert-Amenti might have something to do with the moon? If only in my personal sense of things. Probably not historically attested.
