"Your independence is a foundation for your strength and success."
"Message from Bast: "Like the cat, you're fiercely independent, yet you also need affection and playful companions. Now is the time to balance your social interactions with solitude. While you may ask others for their opinions, ultimately you must make your own decisions. Your freedom and independence are top priorities, so ensure that these characteristics are nurtured."

About Bast (rhymes with Mast): The Egyptian goddess Bast transforms into a cat each night and protects her family and those who call upon her with her all-seeing night vision. She exhibits the catlike traits of the feminine, which includes gracefulness, independence, playfulness, and intuition. Bast also works with cat lovers to help their feline companions. The daughter of the sun god, Ra, Bast has the rare distinction of being both a moon and a sun goddess."
