Goddess of the Week: Nuit

The Bad Witch's Goddess of the Week is Nuit, which ties in with my postings on Aleister Crowley over the past two days because she was one of his favourite goddesses. His Book of the Law contains a beautiful poem to her, which begins:

Had! The manifestation of Nuit.
The unveiling of the company of heaven.
Every man and every woman is a star.

According to the website
"NUT (also known as Nuit): Goddess of the Sky. NUT (pronounced newt) is the daughter of TEFNUT and SHU. She's a B.B.W. (Big Blue Woman), immensely large and covered with stars. Sometimes she swallows them, but they always pop up again later. Her brother GEB is the matching God of the Earth. He is also her husband. There's a crude illustration of them doing something rude which pops up all over the place."
