Horus is the Falcon God. He was seen both as a falcon and as a man with the head of a falcon. He is the son of Isis and Osiris, born of the union of the Earth and the Underworld, Horus’ birth was a divine one. He was born without his mother having had either a husband or a lover. His mother borrowed some of Osiris’ essence to aid her in her solitary creation of her divine son and this is how Osiris came to be revered as his father. Horus presided over the funeral of Osiris, and won himself a place among the Egyptian Gods of Death. In this role he carries the souls of the dead to the Underworld where their souls are weighed. He has three aspects. He is the Divine Child, the Chief and the Divine Consort. He is a God of the Sky, and his two eyes are the Sun and the Moon. Horus is believed to be a powerful protector spirit and carrying his image is said to protect one from all kinds of harm.
