Nut- The Sky Goddess by kaylin Nut- The Sky Goddess by kaylin
Year 20- Goddess of the Year- Nut

Nut, the expansive sky Goddess, carries with her the stars of our ancestors, also known as Akhu. She swallows Ra every evening, and gives birth to him again every morning for Zep Tepi.
She is also Mother to Aset, Wesir, Nebthet, Heru-wer and Set (Not in that order).

Look up to the sky at Night. Know that someone, somewhere in the world, is also looking up at the same sky that you are. Your ancestors are looking back at you, just as She is. We are all connected by the sky.

I thought Aset gave birth to Heru or is their a difference between the two?

There are more than one Heru, to be honest. Nut gave birth the Heru-wer, or Horus the Elder. Heru-sa-Aset, or Horus the Younger, is Aset's child.
