Uranus in Taurus is as good a time as any to re-align with the Hathor Vibe. Before we discuss the astrology of Asteroid Hathor, let’s recall who this most ancient of goddesses actually is. The Cow Goddess is so old she is said to be the precursor of Isis. She also has links with Lion Goddess Sekhmet and the Cat Goddess Bast or Ubasti. She is – like the Babylonian Ishtar – a kind of Ur Goddess. Hathor is super-primordial with origins lost in the vortex of time. According to the Ancient History Encyclopaedia, she was a “bad” deity turned benevolent. This is like a parallel to the Snake Goddess aka Lilith, the first wife of Adam turned demon turned tempter of second wife Eve.
Trips To Hell And Back Were A Fairly Common Goddess Stunt
Hathor originated the concept of parthogenesis (being able to conceive children and give birth without having had sex) and resurrection. Trips to hell and and back were a fairly common Goddess stunt in olden times. And very old churches still have statues of the Virgin Mary with the archetypal crescent Moon head-dress of Hathor. She was the original Holy Cow, the Goddess of Joy, Abundance, Love, Music, Motherhood and a whole host of things. The (only) female Pharoah – Hatshepsut – had her own personal chapel to Hathor and it was said that the river of stars we now call the Milky Way was her realm. There is an asteroid Hathor – 2340 if you want to throw it into your birth chart – that is currently at 5 Cancer. But in truth, the true astrological Hathor is the planet we now call by another name, Venus.
Uranus in Taurus, sign of the most mighty of the old Goddesses, is ripe with potential. Thoughts?
