The Goddess Aset (more commonly known as the Goddess Isis) spins the ankh – the symbol of life, and an object that is seen being held by most in Egyptian hieroglyphs. For me, this is such a powerful interpretation of Aset, the Mother Goddess, because she holds life in the palm of her hand. She controls and commands it, and by doing so creates a ring of fire around her. Fire is the passion that we all breathe, and that breath is what gives us life. The fact that she stands in front of mountains shows her standing in front of the Higher Self and her transcendence of us all.
If you are fortunate to receive this card, you must ask yourself: what is life? What does it mean to you? Most importantly, you must ask yourself…are you living it?
