Sekhmet's name comes from the Ancient Egyptian word "sekhem" which means "power". Her name suits her function and means "the (one who is) powerful". She was also given titles such as the "(One) Before Whom Evil Trembles", "Mistress of Dread", "Lady of Slaughter" and "She Who Mauls".
Sekhmet is the lion-headed solar goddess of the Egyptian pantheon, she carries the staff of the lotus and wears the crown of the solar disc with the uraeus, the cobra of protection upon it.
It is widely believed that Sekhmet herself is a much more ancient deity, and in fact, Sekhmet is much older than Ra. It is told that she “came to Egypt from a place unknown and a time unrecorded”.
Sekhmet represents the raw power of knowing exactly who she is and owning her primal nature. She is also associated with the wild ecstasy of love and sexuality.
