* Bastett

is the Egyptian goddess of the home, domesticity, women's secrets, cats, fertility and childbirth. She protected the home from evil spirits and illnesses, especially illnesses associated with women and children. Like many deities in Egyptian religion, she also played a role in the afterlife. She is sometimes depicted as a guide and helper for the dead, although this is not one of her primary duties. Daughter of the sun god Ra, she is associated with the concept of the Eye of Ra (the all-seeing eye) and the Far Goddess (a female deity who leaves Ra and returns to bring about transformation). Bastet was one of the most popular deities in ancient Egypt as she was the protector of everyone's home and family.
