I found about 3 spellings for her name. I kinda just picked one. If you find a picture of that card please do share! I'd love to see it!

Great Intro! Wise (ha!) choice for this new year! I first met this Goddess in my old (my first?) feminist tarot deck: www.daughtersofthemoon.com/ DaughtersOfTheMoon.com, by Ffiona Morgan; I got it at the Michigan Womyn's Music Festival, when it was a black & white deck that you color in yourself. I looked deeply online for an image of the card but couldn't find one. Iirc, she spelled the Goddess' name *slightly* differently. If I run across it at some point, I'll upload it. I think I left this deck behind at the last place I lived (I was planning on moving back, but not sure if my ex got rid of it in the meantime).

Here's to wisdom and discernment this January! I look forward to reading the links (and another vote to definitely post them!)

Looking forward to make the Roaring 20's the best decade!! Making it happen!!! Motivation into momentum.
My words-of-the-year: *SMART* (goals) & *evolve* (2018 was persist, 2019 was: *eMbody KIND(/ness) &/ =balance= )

My 2020 goal is TRACKING FOOD to result in a loss of 100 pounds (so 111.20 on ticker, started year 11.2 down from summer 2019)
Jan-Feb fitness goal = PUSH-UPS! Starting with my age (56) wall push-ups....

I'm glad you all are enjoying her past. It's my belief that by doing this research we reawaken the divine spirit. I'm just thankful for the people that gathered the information in the first place for me to be able to share with you.

We would have lived in a much different world that had religion stayed balanced with both a male and female energy.

emoticon so much for your time and research. It's sad how much has been lost or was demonized by patriarchy. Rediscovering this wisdom is nourishing and balancing, I believe.

Blessed Be, Amanda

Wow! I want to put up a billboard telling about Hokhma!

I had heard about Sophia and also Anima Mundi (Soul of the World), another name associated with this Being. However, I had never encountered this whole story about Hokhma. Fascinating.

Btw, Mrs. Eva, thanks for adding the extended references! I enjoy browsing through them.

Hokhma comes to us from the Near East, probably Syria. She is a Jewish Gnostic goddess believed to have been the co-creator of the universe. She is associated with the much older Egyptian goddesses Maat and Heket as well as the Greek Gnostic goddess Sophia. Many of her contributions have been stripped from her when Jeudisim went from a polytheistic religion to patriarchal monotheistic religion. Her consort was YHWY (God). You still see her in the old testament, where the word wisdom is given feminine personification. After all, God gave his wife, Wisdom, to Solomon.

I have yet to find a physical description of her. Her symbols are the dove, the 5 planets (Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn), the sun, the moon, and the number 7.

Hokhma's name literally means wisdom. Her name is share by one of the rungs on the Kabblic Tree of Life.

Hokhma and the Judeo/Christian God, YHWY, created the 7 Archons. In the beginning, when the earth was created, the Archons, created beings the crawled out of the mud. Hokhma breathed life into the beings thus breathing life into humanity. To try to teach the humans she end her serpent, Orphis, to dispense her knowledge. This displeased her consort. And we all know how that turned out...

When humanity continued to go south, Hokhma sent the Great Flood of Noah.

In a continued attempt to save humans from themselves, because she loved dearly, Hokhma gifted the world with the 7 prophets of the old testament, from Moses to Ezra. Then sadly went almost dormant.

She is a goddess of divine inspiration and creativity. She believes in the pursuit of knowledge, and I get the idea she doesn't really think anything is a lost cause. Sometimes you just have to start over with a better understanding of the task at hand.

To honor this goddess, take a walk in nature. She did help create it. Write a poem, draw a picture, or collect supplies from your walk and make a beautiful craft. Help elevate those less fortunate than yourself. She loves humans. She gave us the power within ourselves to save humanity one tiny positive gesture at a time. Do some research on a subject you find interesting. After all, she believes knowledge is power.

If you have any information on Hokhma you'd like to share please do!
