An ancient fertility goddess and the daughter of Isis. She was known as the "Lady of the Light" and was associated with the vengeance of the sun. In ancient times, she was worshipped in the form of a cat. In later times, she was envisaged as a feline-headed woman. Bast (or Bastet as she is also known) is one of the most popular of ancient Egyptian goddesses in modern-day sex-magick cults and Witchcraft. The cat is her sacred animal.
