Sothys was the name that the ancient Egyptians gave to the brightest star in the sky; she was perceived by the inhabitants of the land of Pharaohs as the jewel amongst jewels. Men were fascinated by her brightness and her beauty.

During a heavenly night, Saturn met the young star Sothys; even Venus could not outshine her. Their meeting was astonishing and Saturn was overwhelmed with passion for her; this threw the regular rhythm of the stars into confusion.

Venus could not bear the fact she was no longer the most beautiful star in the sky. One night, she took her revenge and Sothys fell into the dark of the night and disappeared. Saturn cried over her for forty days and forty nights and flooded the earth.

Over the centuries, the world heard nothing about Sothys until the day Sothys reappeared to deliver her secret to the earth: She dedicated herself to women in order to preserve their beauty and happiness. As a tribute, men venerated her as a Goddess.
