"AOIFE" (INCREDIBLE BEAUTY) WAS A FIERCE SCOTTISH WARRIOR GODDESS; SHE WAS CALLED THE "PRINCESS OF THE ISLE OF SHADOW". SHE WAS A CELTIC QUEEN ASSOCIATED WITH SCOTLAND. HER RIVAL WAS" SCATHACH" (SOME SAY THEY WERE SISTERS) AND THE TWO OFTEN CLASHED. ACCORDING TO LEGEND, BOTH OPERATED A SCHOOL ON THE ISLE WHERE THEY TRAINED WARRIORS, BUT "AOIFE'S" SCHOOL WAS MUCH LESS SUCCESSFUL.

DESPITE CONFLICT BETWEEN SHE AND "CUCHULAIN", THE TWO PRODUCED A SON NAMED "CONLA. " LEGEND HAS IT THAT "CUCHULAIN" LEFT "AOIFE "BEFORE FINDING OUT SHE WAS PREGNANT, AND, WHEN HE WAS LEAVING HER, HE AVE HER LITTLE GOLDEN RING. "AOIFE "RAISED "CONLA "IN SECRET, TRAINING HIM IN THE DARK ARTS AND COMBAT, AND WHEN HE WAS OLD ENOUGH, SHE SENT HIM OUT INTO THE WORLD TO SEEK HIS DESTINY...GIVING HIM THE RING AND TELLING HIM NEVER TO TURN HIS BACK WHILE IN COMBAT. THE LAD FOLLOWED HIS MOTHER'S ADVICE ALTHOUGH IT LED TO HIS DEATH AT THE HANDS OF HIS FATHER WHO WAS UNAWARE THE THE BOY WAS HIS SON. BY THE TIME HE SAW THE RING, IT WAS TOO LATE.

OTHER SOURCES PLACE HER AS A CONSORT OF THE SEA GOD "MANANNAN" OR ONE OF HIS SONS, AND SAY SHE STOLE THE" ALPHABET OF KNOWLEDGE" FROM THE DEITIES TO GIVE TO HUMANKIND. FOR THIS TRANSGRESSION, ALONG WITH HER GENERAL MEANNESS, SHE WAS TRANSFORMED INTO A CRANE BY THE ELDER DEITIES. SOME LEGENDS SAY SHE HAUNTS THE COUNTRYSIDE IN THIS FORM TO THIS DAY, OTHERS THAT SHE WAS ACCIDENTALLY KILLED BY HUNTERS.

SESHAT is the Egyptian Goddess of writing, measurement, libraries, and archives. She kept the records of the ruling king, tracking the length of their reigns and transcribing their speeches. She was also the "mistress of builders", and assisted with measuring the boundaries of temples and other sacred structures. She is described as either the daughter or wife of Thoth, a moon God who was later credited with inventing writing. She is depicted in human form with a headdress featuring a seven-pointed star and a set of downward facing horns, which may have originally been a crescent moon. She holds a palm leaf rib on which she records the passing of the years. Another of her names was SAFEKH-AUBI, which means "She Who Wears the Two Horns" and relates to the horns on her headdress.
