Hathor, Sekhmet, Isis.

I think that Hathor would be the one though, as I kept "running into" her wherever i went in Upper Egypt during my one and only visit to Egypt.

I like her attributes and also the story of Hathor/ Sekhmet. See here:

Thanks Wink

Mine would have to be Ma'at.

Without Ma'at, there would be utter chaos.

Hathor and all her carnations. She taught me of the celestial blessings of all that is expression. I adore all feminine energy and mothering strength. I am blessed by her voice and authentic delight of the waters and nature. I have seen her in vision (or hallucination). The others are not my delight, if I would mention any other second to Hathor it is Joan of Arc. When I listen to Alanis Morriette, I always think of Hathor.

My sister's words - "My favourite goddess is Sekhmet! Because I likes lions and 'cause they are beautiful and because she is beautiful and good and she helps! I really likes her." Well, this my sister said; to me, Hathor, Sekhmet's sister is great!

My local Bast(et) is hissing and growling, now would that count as an answer?

I vote for Seshat( as my id would suggest).

It's rare to see a goddess related to knowledge, writing and mathematics, I think it's cool. Smile
