The Goddess Maat represents the ideals of law, order, and truth
The word, Maat translates "that which is straight." It implies anything that is true, ordered, or balanced. She was the female counterpart of Thoth. Maat is an ancient goddess because she is found in the boat of Ra as it rose above the waters of the abyss of Nu on the first day. Maat and Thoth charted the daily course of the sun god Ra. Maat is sometimes called the 'Eye of Ra' or the 'Daughter of Ra'.
Maat also plays an important part in the Book of the Dead. It is in the Hall of Maat the judgement of the dead was performed. This was done by weighing one's heart (conscience) against the feather of Maat. If a balance was struck and the soul was good and pure, they would be promoted to live with the gods for eternity and to meet Osiris in the after life.
Maat was also responsible for and in charge of regulating the seasons and the movement of the stars
Goddess of truth, justice, harmony, and world order Maat will protect you in business and personal relationships ensuring you are treated fairly and honourably. Maat respects individuals rights and fairness in work and trade. Call on Maat during negotiations to give your words more power and help you find the right words in the right moment.
