This is my Heart Chakra card (Companion suit). I was initially quite perplexed at receiving an image of cave paintings of cattle for the heart chakra because my logical mind kept telling me that they more suitably represented the base chakra, but as I was looking for images I found the picture of the Egyptian Goddess, Hathor, and the sculptural representation of the Goddess as a cow, and they just seemed to be perfect for the card. On reading up on this Goddess, I was amazed to find that one of her qualities is as the Goddess of Love in Egyptian lore, and that suited the heart chakra perfectly! The images represent to me a gentle but powerful energy and asking the questions of the card produced some amazing insights.
