is a woman who often seems to be quite out of reach and this may be due to her natural reserve and aloof manner. In any case, Bastet
doesn't leave a neutral impression on those she meets and her distant and apparently disdainful demeanour is certainly a factor in making her appear enigmatic. Introspective and very introverted, Bastet
tends to retreat into her ivory tower if life disappoints her, daydreams often bringing her the comfort that reality is unable to provide. Indeed, she is an inspired, sensitive and emotional soul who isn't cut out for struggle or hardship and is allergic to stress. Rather possessive and overbearing, Bastet
is like the ant in the well-known fable: quite fond of material wealth and reluctant to lend or share her assets. She is something of an «outsider», perhaps because she is fiercely independent and stands out through her originality (be it an intellectual distinction or in the way she dresses), or because she isolates herself from others throgh her unceremonious and curt attitude. So yes, Bastet
is a particularly disconcerting and elusive female: communication can often be challenging for her, so she prefers to remain taciturn, half hoping that others will read her mind, often followed by disappointment when this results in her feeling misunderstood. However deep down, she is actually extremely determined and strong-willed! It is true that she can occasionally give in to laziness, putting off until tomorrow that which she could easily do today... But with the karmic 4, all extremes are possible, and Bastet
is just as likely to invest herself in her work (notably if she was born in April or on the 4th, 13th, 22nd or 31st, or if she has a Life Path
Number of 4) as to choose an easier life focusing on her home, family and personal relationships. As a child, it is necessary to provide constant motivation and encouragement in order to avoid her becoming withdrawn. Her clever and practical mind would benefit from manual or esthetic activities such as pottery, drawing or sewing, because Bastet
tends to be a perfectionist who is meticulous in all that she does.
