Ptah

Ptah’s Place in the Egyptian Pantheon In Egyptian mythology, the deity named Ptah (Egyptian: ptḥ) is the demiurge of Memphis, god of craftsmen and architects. In the triad of Memphis, he is the spouse of Sekhmet and the father of Nefertum. He was also regarded as the father of the sage Imhotep. The Greeks knew him as the god Hephaestus, and in this form Manetho made him the first king of ...

Anubis

The Egyptian Deity correspondence for Hod is Anubis (Aleister Crowley, 777, p. 6) In this latter capacity, the Egyptian jackal-headed Anubis is similar, since he was the patron of the dead, an dis depicted as leading the soul into the judgment of Osiris in Amenti.57 I twill help the student not a little if he remembers that the sphere of Hod represents on a very much lower plane similar qualities ...

Osiris

The Egyptian God attribution for Malkuth is Osiris according to Crowley’s classification. (Aleister Crowley, 777,  p. 6)   Israel regardie add more nuances telling his reader that Sebis is the Egyptian god attributed to Malkuth.  This is mainly because “he is figured with the head of a crocodile, the Egyptian hieroglyph of gross matter.” 64  Regardie also wants us to add  Psyche, the lower Nepthys and the “unmarried Isis” to this ...

Apis

The attributions to The Sixth Path of the Tree of Life: Vav follow the astrological one very closely, for we find here the Eguptian Asar Ameshet Apis,[9] the fighting bull of Memphis, who trampled on his enemies. In Egyptian mythology, Apis or Hapis(alternatively spelled Hapi-ankh), is a bull-deitythat was worshipped in the Memphis region. “Apis served as an intermediary between humans and an all-powerful god (originally Ptah, later Osiris, then Atum).” [quote: Virtual Egyptian Museum] According to Manetho, his worship was instituted by Kaiechos of the Second ...

Harpocrates

According to Dr. Israel Regardie, Hoor-paar-Kraat is an attribution on this seventeenth path “principally because he sums up the two twin gods of Horus, the lord of strength, and Harpocrates, the lord of silence, in one deific personality.”[42] In a sense, says Regardie, “all hybrids are attributed here.”[43] In Late Greek mythology as developed in Ptolemaic Alexandria, Harpocrates is the god of silence. Harpocrates was adapted by the Greeks from the Egyptian child god Horus. To the ancient Egyptians, Horus ...

Baset

According to the comments emmited by occult scholar Israel Regardie, in his book A Garden of Pomegrenates, it seems that the Egyptian deities Pasht (Bast), Sekhet and Mau are attributed to this nineteenth path of the Tree of Life mainly “because they are cat goddesses.”[23] The Egyptian goddess Bast is also an attribution for the 19thpath of the Tree of Life. Her name is also spelled Bast, Baast, Ubasti and Baset.The Egyptian divinity ...

Sekhmet

As it is habitually the case for almost all the others cat deities in the Egyptian pantheon, we are not surprised to see that another attribution for this 19th path of the qabalistic Tree of Life is the beautiful lion-goddess Sekhmet. In Egyptian mythology, Sekhmet (who’s name is also spelled Sachmet, Sakmet, Sakhet, Sekmet, Sakhmet and Sekhet; and given the Greek name, sometimes Sachmis), was originally the warrior goddess as well ...

Mau

According to the comments emmited by occult scholar Israel Regardie, in his book A Garden of Pomegrenates, it seems that the Egyptian deities Pasht (Bast), Sekhet and Mau are attributed to this nineteenth path of the Tree of Life mainly “because they are cat goddesses.”[23] The aspect of Horus commonly known as Ra-Hoor-Khuit is another correspondence here, because he is representing the Sun which rules Leo.[24] In fact, when we think ...

Nephtys

The Lady of the House The origin of the goddess Nephthys is unclear but the literal translation of her name is usually given as “Lady of the House,” which has caused some to mistakenly identify her with the notion of a “housewife,” or as the primary lady who ruled a domestic household. This is a pervasive error repeated in many commentaries concerning this deity. Her name means quite specifically, “Lady ...
