    “Sekhmet is the wise old grand-mother leg of the divine triangle — I mean trinity. She is called Kali in the east, and she is also known as the destroyer Goddess. She helps us to bring a close to things which do not serve us in our lives.” — Majik

    “In Astrology she will resonate strongly with Saturn, Pluto, and the asteroid Chiron. She wants renewal and healing for everything and relentlessly creates the conditions for us to keep growing and changing, by moving us out of static patterns and into the dynamic quality of new experience... She is depicted as a woman with the head of a lion.” — Majik

    “In the tarot she will resonate with the High Priestess card, and the Death Card, and the Queen of Swords, and the Justice or Adjustment card...There are probably others.” — Majik

    “All of these attributions are some not all of the attributions. She may seem hard on us at times, but it is because we in our drama enough to be unable to see the rebirth that is always involved with the endings and “deaths” we encounter through our experience here at this octave of conciousness.” — Majik

    “She loves you very much.” — Majik

    “So much it can be scary!!!!” — Majik
