Weekly Goddess Inspiration: Heqet

Apparently the Egyptian Goddesses are trying to get my attention these days.

This week brings us the lovely frog goddess Heqet, whose message is:

"Fertility surrounds you in numerous forms. Open your eyes."


It seems appropriate that Heqet comes into our live as the damp winds of spring begin to blow across much of North America, as we begin to plow our fields and gardens, plant our seeds, look forward to the coming germination and blossoming. Heqet speaks to the power of moist earth, smelling of life, of rushing creeks, of the transformations that take place below the soil and in the lakes and ponds, of creation.

Some questions I'll be considering this week, and which I hope you'll consider with me:

Where do I have a sense of my life being infertile, barren, or fallow?

How can I begin to see these areas as filled with fertility and potential instead?

What am I planting, creating, or transforming right now?

How can I support that creation, growth, or transformation?

How can I ask others to support me in my creation, growth, or transformation?

How can I support others in their creation, growth, or transformation?

In what areas of my life do I have trouble seeing fertility? What areas do I have trouble nurturing? What can I do to change that?

What am I in the process of birthing? What makes me feel pregnant with possibility?

As always, this card is drawn from The Goddess Inspiration Oracle by Kris Waldherr.
