Bast, the cat-headed Goddess, and Sekhmet, the lion headed Goddess, represented two powerful aspects of the sun: the life-giving, pleasurable aspect and the burning, destroying aspect. Bast was worshipped at Bubastis, where vast celebrations were held. She ruled pleasure, joy, music, dance, health and healing, the moon and of course, cats. Bast bats at you with her paw to urge you to come and play with her. It is time to divert yourself with something that is amusing, fun, and total recreational. Has play been a low priority for you?
