Mother Goddess of Mothers and Mothering

She is also the mother of Khonsu the Moon God.

During the Amun-Ra ascendancy she was his female counterpart. She did her best to amalgamate all the great Goddesses into her own identity and liked to be known as ‘Lady of Heaven’ or ‘Queen of Gods’. Ironically her symbol is that of a vulture.

To get noticed in her early days, she helped Isis collect the bits of Osiris and replaced his head and heart. This sort of thing is always a good career move.
