It’s time to think big. You are a star in your own right. There are unlimited possibilities. It is fine not to know every detail before proceeding. Mystery is a natural part of life.
Nuit’s energy is as wide as the sky, as big as the universe, and as bright as a star. Within the Egyptian pantheon, Nuit played the role of sky goddess. the celestial heavens were her body, and below her, in a mirror image, lay her brother, the earth god, Geb.
The infinite sky and the sparkling stars above are the expressions of the nature of Nuit. The ideas of wonder, unlimited possibility, infinity, and the eternity of life are all mysteries of Nuit. Ancient Egyptians believed that when one died, the body rested in her energy and, thus, they often painted her image on the lids of sarcophagi. Death is, in fact, a part of rebirth for the Egyptians, and Nuit was also a mother – she gave birth to Isis, Osiris, Set, and Horus. The sun god, Ra, was born from her star-strewn body every morning and then swallowed again at sunset.
Nuit invites us to share the infinite and expand accordingly. Her flowing energy suggests to us that there is nothing we can’t do and encourages us to embrace big possibilities. While many of us are fearful to expand and to take risks in that growth, Nuit encourages traveling forward with a strong intention anyway. When you are feeling small, when you are stuck in the tiny details, when you feel that there is no place in the world for you, Nuit is the perfect goddess to help you from relief. Nuit encourages us to think big and to set positive intentions for our growth.
Nuit also offers comfort to those who feel that they need to have all the answers all the time, which can be exhausting on so many levels. None of us is perfect. None of us knows everything, and it is unfair to put that type of pressure on ourselves. Not knowing actually leads to growth too. Nuit champions the idea that there are some things that should stay unexplained due to the beauty of the mystery.
