Nut and Geb

The sky is Nut’s body, arching from horizon to horizon. Geb is the Earth, lying beneath her. During the day, Nut and Geb are separated, but each evening Nut comes down to meet Geb and this causes darkness. If storms came during the day, it was believed that Nut had come closer to the earth.

“Goddess of the Infinite Night, Lady of the Starry Realm; Spread yourself over me so that I am protected beneath your reach; Guide me on my spiritual path; Allow me to access the knowledge of your infinite realm; Show me the mysteries that are exposed to all but hidden due to ignorance.”
