10. Sobek


SOBEK hails from Kemetic tradition as the Crocodile-headed god, protector from potential harms found in the Nile, and specifically oriented towards expertise and authority, particularly when working with military strategy.  He hails as the primordial god of water and fertility, the creator of the world, and a figure to look to for influence and inspiration when it comes to adapting for differing causes.  It's important to remember that "fertility" in Western cultures also is interpreted as spark, inspiration, or inception; in SOBEK'S original form and context, it is the literal fertility and begetting of progeny.  When SOBEK appears in a reading, it's important to remain flexible in your endeavors, always seeking an advantage or gain from the situation.  It's important to operate from areas in which you are well-versed, because that expertise (presented well) will beget additional authority and respect from your peers and superiors.

This card is part of the PANTHEON Suit in the Woven Wisdom Oracle, which recalls details in divinity that apply to our lives. Thank you to those people of the living faith traditions who offered additional insight & context into the importance of these divine figures.  This suit asks, what can I learn from the figureheads and their living traditions. that I may observe myself with that same reverence?

Could relate to: being regarded as a subject matter expert, pregnancy, managing a household, taking a leadership role amongst friends and family.

Key Questions:

  • How can I be flexible in smaller details while maintaining my overarching goals?

  • ​What are my plans for family growth or management?

  • What opportunities should I engage with to become even more of an expert in my field?

  • How do I react to authority of myself or others? Can I better engage?
