Cat Moon Magazine 🐾♡ Bat Folklore

Bat is a cow goddess in Egyptian mythology who was drawn as a face with cow ears and horns, or as a woman- most often.

She could see the depths of several worlds,

This ability is referred to in the Pyramid Texts, where she was called “Bat, with her two faces.”

However, the actual bat animal,

flying creature has much darker associations.

Bat’s mostly eat fruit & insects,
however, several kinds exist. They can be found in folklore throughout ancient Egyptian texts & iconography.

In some places bats were seen more positively.

In ancient Egypt, it was believed bats could alleviate or cure many health ailments.

Bats in ancient Egypt were fairly widespread & lived throughout the area, including the Nile valley, Delta, and eastern desert.
Artwork of bats has been found in stonework here.

Bats lived almost everywhere, including within caves,
houses, tombs, temples, and pyramid structures.

Because they could fly, the ancient Egyptians classified the bat as a bird species.

Bat, the cow head goddess, was not shown as often in Egyptian artwork,
however, she was seen in amulets & jewelry.

Amulets of bats were believed to ward off evil spirits,
while the ones of Bat, offered a more personal protection.

In American folklore, bats are known to transform into vampiric creatures
who can possess its prey with a hypnotism on some kind of deep frequency,
unheard by our ears.

Bats as well demonstrate this unique ability.
They sleep upside down,
just like the vampire is thought to.

This belief takes some precedent form of Native American lore,
where bats were known as demonic & mischievous tricksters.

In folklore especially, bats are commonly associated with darkness, witchcraft, and death….

It’s even thought that if a bat flies into your house,

that someone has put a curse on you.

If a bat comes to you in dreams,

it could also be an omen of death.

Bats also have a really good smelling psychic ability and scents,

such as peppermint, spearmint, menthol, rosemary, cinnamon, thyme, & cedar are thought to repel them.

The stories surrounding these nocturnal creatures has transformed the bat spirit into a connection with Samhain and Halloween over time.

In fact, around Halloween time, you will see bats in many popular decorations in American homes & houses.

Bats are tied to, in many cultures, with death
which makes them a perfect representative of Samhain, (the time when the veil is thin.)
especially even Bat, the Egyptian cow goddess, as well.

Various theories explain why bats are the only mammal that can fly.

One Roman fable says there was once a battle between the mammals and the birds.

The bat didn’t join, watching the action without choosing a side.

When Mars, the god of war & battles- named the birds as the winner then, the bat gave up his position.

The bat, choosing to sits on the sidelines,
neutrally observing, until he knew which side was the winning one, declassifies himself.

The bat is in fact a mammal, as far as scientists have explained and not a bird at all.
