Hathor: the Exuberant Goddess of Abundant Life

A beautiful post on Hat-Hor from symbolreader.

Enjoy!

Hathor was the greatest goddess of Egypt (before Isis took over in that role much later); originally she was called HetHert (“the House or Womb Above), later her name became the familiar Hat-Hor (“the House or Womb of Horus”). She was the sky in which the Great Falcon – Horus, the original sun god – lived; she was the womb from which he was born. She was a sky goddess of the primeval sky waters and a solar goddess, thus a bringer of all life.
