The 42 Ideals of Maat

Goddess of truth and Earth Mother

The ancient Egyptian Goddess Maat or Ma'at is depicted as a tall woman wearing a crown surmounted by a huge ostrich feather. Her totem symbol is a stone platform or foundation, representing the stable base (ensuring human continuity) on which order is built.

Maat personifies the concepts of truth, balance, order, harmony, law, morality, and justice. She is also the goddess attributed with regulating the stars, seasons, actions of mortals and the deities, and who brought order from chaos at the moment of creation.

Later, as a goddess in other traditions of the Egyptian pantheon, where most goddesses were paired with a male aspect, her masculine counterpart was Thoth and their attributes are the same. In comparison, she is akin to the Shakti and Tara, Hindu and Buddhist divine feminine archetypes.
