Sekhmet is an ancient Egyptian goddess, often represented as a woman wearing a red dress with the head of a lioness wearing a sun disc circled by a cobra on her head. Sekhmet was associated both with disease and with healing and medicine. Like other fierce goddesses in the Egyptian pantheon, she was called the “Eye of Re.”
To calm Sekhmet, festivals were celebrated at the end of battles, so that the destruction would come to a stop. During an annual festival held at the beginning of the year, a festival of intoxication, the Egyptians danced and played music to pacify the wildness of the goddess and drank great quantities of wine ritually to imitate the extreme drunkenness that stopped the wrath of the goddess—when she almost destroyed humanity.
Since it takes a fierce but medicinal woman to create psytrance, this name was chosen to represent the VA – a goddess with a lions’ head. Since we love cats so much, this title just made sense.
