mut-----Its gods are Tum Ptah Auromoth, combining the idea of the Setting Sun, the king of the gods, and a purely elemental divinity. Auramoouth is the Coptic form of the Egyptian Goddess Mut. She is primary godform in the Neophyte ceremony of the Golden Dawn, and is associated with the element of Water.[5] She is the daughter of Nuit. She is the Sky-goddess of Water. Mut, which meant mother in the ancient Egyptian language,[6] was an ancient Egyptian mother goddess with multiple aspects that changed over the thousands of years of the culture. Alternative spellings are Maut and Mout. She was considered a primal deity, associated with the waters from which everything was born through parthenogenesis. She also was depicted as a woman with the crowns of Egypt upon her head. The rulers of Egypt each supported her worship in their own way to emphasize their own authority and right to rule through an association with Mut.Some of Mut’s many titles included World-MotherEye of RaQueen of the GoddessesLady of HeavenMother of the Gods, and She Who Gives Birth, But Was Herself Not Born of Any. Mut was a title of the primordial waters of the cosmos, Naunet, in the Ogdoad cosmogony during what is called the Old Kingdom, the third through sixth dynasties, dated between 2,686 to 2,134 B.C. However, the distinction between motherhood and cosmic water later diversified and lead to the separation of these identities, and Mut gained aspects of a creator goddess, since she was the mother from which the cosmos emerged.

The hieroglyph for Mut’s name, and for mother itself, was that of a white vulture, which the Egyptians believed were very maternal creatures. Indeed, since Egyptian white vultures have no significant differing markings between female and male of the species, being without sexual dimorphism, the Egyptians believed they were all females, who conceived their offspring by the wind herself, another parthenogenic concept. In art, Mut was pictured as a woman with the wings of a white vulture, holding an ankh, wearing the united crown of Upper and Lower Egypt and a dress of bright red or blue, with the feather of the goddess Ma’at at her feet. Alternatively, as a result of her assimilations, Mut is sometimes depicted as a cobra, a cat, a cow, or as a lioness as well as the white vulture.
