Sekhmet The Lion Goddess

Ancient Egyptian Lion GoddessHey if waiting for Mars to come out of ‘shadow’ in Leo is giving you the merdes, maybe think in terms more of Sekhmet, the Ancient Egyptian Lion-Warrior Goddess…bringer of joy, through strength, tres Kali. Or Pluto.

I dreamed of her years ago, that i was in a classroom with her & yes there were some autonomy type lessons i had to learn then.

She is also asteroid 5381 if you want to throw her into your chart via the Extended Chart Options on Astrodienst. She is conjunct my Mercury in Aries!  Asteroid Sekhmet is currently at 12 Taurus, between Mercury and the Sun, squaring Mars.  Are  you being a truculent N.P.D type nutter with all the fixed sign energy or are you tuning into Queenly Sekhmet vibes…Ruthlessly regenerative…golden, bold…

Oh and she’s conjunct my mid heaven too.
What could it mean?
I’ve always LOVED lions.
Yes I’ve touched a wild one, no I wasn’t scared but I’m from Africa so very little scares me, apart from monogamy and patriarchal institutions.
Love Sekhmet. Big time love

Lol
She’s in my 10th house conjunct my sun, mars, mercury and Pluto ….
I’m an astro moron so I don’t know what the green squiggle that could be a Leo sign or True node means but in the little box on the side next to the wheel, that is next to her too.
Oh well….

Purfect MM!

Another asteroid in Cap.. my moon and 2nd. It’s a whole other version of ‘occupy’. There’s another camp in Aqua and then some drifters but it’s interesting. I may have a closer look at it all.

Just as an aside.. very peaceful vibes today and am enjoying the astro mood. Was the perfect w/end to start on the Devic essence too!

Holy Femmetasia Mystic. I love it when you recommend an asteroid search but I’m starting to be able to guess them before I even punch in the numbers.
I got yet another goddess sitting right beside my Aqua Venus, along with Circe and Sappho and bundles more Girl-power-ragers.
Even better, Sekhment is currently in trine to her natal finger print on my chart, time to Lioness it up…? Hell yes.
Wrote a long email to friends today that was about 70% concerned with how freaking fabulous my mane of hair looks when in Europe and humidity free…

Just found that Bastet, Bast, Sekhmet was Goddess of Perfume & Purity.

My book of doors says sekhmet was bast’s twin. Maybe the narcotic link is because one of her myths is that Ra sent her out to punish the humans for straying from spiritual principles and she had a rampage and was totally unstoppable, pausing only to drink the blood of her victims. She was a real go-getter. So he mixed mandrake and beer and had all the gods flood the land with it one night, so that when she came out in the morning to drink the blood of the fallen she got drunk and happy and forgot all about… Read more »

On her shadow side, Sekmet has something to do with addictions. Haha, just found it! According to Goddess cards: Protectiveness & loyalty. Obsessions with no limits or boundaries. Overindulgence in mind-altering substances: chemical dependencies; susceptibility to control or trickery. Wonder how that came about? O it says she can protect you from harm to Yourself OR from others & self harm maybe thro’ toxic relationships or self harm via alcohol. Dammit & i’m enjoying a glass of Sav Blanc labelled ‘Mojo’…seriously. It goes onto say: Examine & refocus, like a Lioness hunting, gather yourself together & follow your real destiny… Read more »

OK first thanks for the gift.

And second here we go again in my 5th house – juno, pallas, ceres, sappho, my moon, mercury and venus, you name it, they’re hanging out there, it’s like a day spa for asteroids. Sekhmet is there, conjunct my venus and mercury and sextile mars, semi sextile sun and uranus and quincunx chiron. I’m regenerating thanks, although it doesn’t feel ruthless, it’s flowing right now.

Love the egyptian posts Mystic.

Ooh, Sekhmet in Leo along with my Sun! (Majored in Ancient History, I do vibe with the Egyptians, uncomfortable yet casual connection for me. Being a Chinese double Tiger vibe with cats too, BIG time). Eris/Inanna who “was a powerful warrior, who drove a war chariot, drawn by lions” is in Aries for me and she trines Sekhmet along with my NN in Sagg. = So I guess in this life, with NN in Sagg, in order to learn the truth you must first be an example of the truth… so I need to find my strength against cultural norms… Read more »

She’s hanging about at 23 Gem for me, in the nomansland of my chart.
But today she’s transiting my south node, a nice break from merc grinding back and forth. gee whiz is that dragging some shit out my brain.
The sun is on my midheaven today, which I guess means i should be working hard and not faffing about/thinking i might go home and do life admin.

Hmm I have Sekhmet at 4 degrees Sagg. It seems to be squaring Jupiter & semisquare Pluto … 😯

Sekhmet is close to natal Chiron 16 degrees in the 2nd. This might be good?

So if my Sekhmet is at 20 degrees Scorpio
and I’ve got Venus also at 20 degrees Scorpio

This might be some good news to do with strength emerging in how I deal with love and sex?

Ah…*blush, foot shuffle, look kind a sheepish*…..when you do the astrodienst thing…is the natal or progressed I should be looking at/quoting? Cos I may just be misleading myself AND you.

best to start with natal. progressions is something about planets moving or something over time. natal is where they were when you were born.
looking at the natal and transits is fun.

Oh my word. I don’t know enough about astrology to fully grok this, but I get the feeling it’s pretty powerful stuff:

Mars in Leo 27 degrees
Sekhmet in Leo 26 degrees
(Trine Chiron, Square Jupiter – both in Taurus
Sextil Mercury in Gemini – DAMN! I wish I understood more about the workings!)

Need I mention that Sekhmet is something of a _major_ player in my life? When I discover thing like this, I feel like she’s slapping me upside the head (gently). What’s a Kataka to do with all this leonine energy inside of her??

Add an Aries transit to that.

So let’s see… a leonine warrior goddess in the sign of the lion and influenced by the god of war. Also revered as a healer and on good terms with Chiron (but not so much with the authority figure). Sounds pretty Epic to me 🙂
