|—||Inscription from Isis Temple at Sais|
“Sophia is often depicted as a red winged woman who wears a red gown as well. She is said to be righteous, wise, loving and always willing to communicate. She is also protective and very giving and truthful.
Her image is often showed in different ways though, so she is not always seen as being a red winged woman.”

Hymn to the Divine Mother
Now there’s no point in placing the blame
And you should know I suffer the same
If I lose you
My heart will be broken
Love is a bird, she needs to fly
Let all the hurt inside of you die
When your heart’s not open
Achamoth is the dark aspect of the goddess Sophia, cast down from Sophia’s body into the realms of chaos.
Here she has been torn apart by the “lion-faced light”, as explained in the Gnostic gospel Pistis Sophia. Now she rests, in shock, dwelling on her pains and resentment, having forgotten her divine origin.
