Uranus in Taurus is as good a time as any to re-align with the Hathor Vibe. The Ancient Kemetic 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 Hekate and the Babylonian Ishtar – a kind of Ur Goddess.
Hathor is super-primordial – her origins are lost in the vortex of time. And, it doesn’t help that the usual suspects destroyed practically all of the ancient literature on feminine divinity and former times.
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.
Hathor originated the concept of parthogenesis (being able to conceive children and give birth without having had sex) and resurrection. Being able to pop out children when you want them, with or without sex plus going to hell and and back are part of the standard goddess skillset. FYI 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.
She is also connected to the Pleiades star cluster which some call the Seven Hathors, as well as the planet Venus. Barbara Walker, in the The Women’s Encylopedia of Myths and Secrets blew my mind with his little mention:
Mother Goose originated in ancient Egypt, where she was Mother Hathor, incarnate in the Nile Goose. She laid the Golden Egg of the sun, another way of saying she gave birth to Ra. His solar disc was sometimes called the Goose-egg.Some Egyptian writings called the goose Creatress of the World because she produced the whole
universe in a primordial World Egg.
The fairy tale of Jack who climbed the beanstalk to find the goose that laid the golden egg, dated back to pre-dynastic shamans who climbed the Heavenly Vine, or Ladder of Set, to the celestial realm of the solar deity, invoked in prayers as “the Egg of the Goose appearing from out of the sycamore.”
Like Hathor, Mother Goose was the godmother of all children. In her pictures she always wore the traditional garb of the witch- midwife: black cloak, pointed hat like the Egyptian crown, and magic wand.
Hathor is the original “Holy Cow” and natural Muse-Mentor to Taureans!
