Wadjet is an ancient Egyptian Goddess, her name means Green One. This is in reference to the colour of the serpent whom she represents or to the Nile Delta with which she is associated as a symbol of Lower Egypt, as the vulture Goddess Nekhbet-Mut is the symbol of Upper Egypt. Wadjet is one of the most ancient of Egyptian deities. Her role as Mother Goddess comes from the circumstance that Wadjet also acted as nursemaid to young Horus. Amongst other Goddesses, she was also associated with the Eye of Ra and is depicted as a Cobra rearing its head.
I met Wadjet in the form of a giant cobra and she was smiling at me. She is definitely a Crone Goddess, having the energy of the wise old woman. She told me that it was no coincidence that I had lately so often had the feeling that I was capable of great magic.
When Wadjet enters your life, be prepared to go through some purging fires in order to find the inner peace and solitude you have longed for and hadn’t even known. Be gentle with your children while teaching them firmly and use your power for one single, powerful gesture of setting boundaries, rather than depleting your energy in unnecessary disempowered battles against windmills that are not and never have been the real enemies. In fact, your “enemies” (if you want to call them that, but according to Wadjet, challengers is a much better word) have only been able to hold such power over you so far because you did not assert and embrace your own. If you had, they would never have had any hold over you in the first place. To learn more about this Goddess and use her energy in your meditation and self-reflection, click here:
