Nut, Egyptian goddess

Card of the day: NUT – The Celestial Vault

The sky. The stars. Protection. You are reborn from night each morning. Start anew.

Nut, whose name means “night,” is a mother goddess worshiped by the ancient Egyptians as the physical embodiment of the night sky. Paintings depict her as a dark-skinned, naked woman covered in stars, with her body sharply arched over the earth in protection. She is married to the god of the verdant earth, Geb.

A myth relates that the sun god, Ra, is born each morning from Nut’s womb. The rosy color of the sunrise is said to symbolize her blood as she pushes him out into the sky. It is also said that the dead are taken into Nut’s celestial vault, where the goddess would eternally protect and nurture them.

Have you been crushed, tossed, and turned by the trials of life? You have the power within you to recreate yourself again and again, if need be, as if a phoenix rising from the ashes. To paraphrase a Christian song based on Lamentations 3:22-23, “The steadfast love of the Lord (Divine Spirit, God, Universe, insert your term of awe and respect here) never ceases/ His mercies never come to an end/ They are new every morning/ Great is Thy faithfulness.”

You are renewed every morning indeed. Start anew with faith, hope, and love in your heart.
