Lady of the East, Goddess of the Rising Sun, and the Sacred and All Seeing Eye, Bastet's silver eye was the moon, itself. The daughter of the sun god, Ra, Bastet was a deity of the home, women, children, and joy. She was a protector goddess, who traveled with her father across the sky during the day and turned into a cat at night to defend him from his great enemy, the serpent Apep. Bastet was associated with the life-preserving power of the sun, with the protection of women, and with felicity, watching over all and shielding them with her loving, radiant protection. Let Bastet watch over you with these sweet kitty earrings.
Cat amulets were often worn during the 22nd and 23rd dynasties to invoke the blessing of Bastet.
