Myth: Wadjet is represented as a cobra, rearing up to strike with lethal force, any enemy of the king. Her name is said to mean ‘Green One’ or ‘To be Green’ – a reference both to the colour of the serpent and to the papyrus swamps which she is said to have created in the Delta. To be green in this instance is said to; mean ‘to flourish like the papyrus marshes.’
The form of a rearing cobra on a crown is termed the Uraeus. The sun-god Ra also wears the Uraeus which envelopes his solar disk within its coils, here Wadjet is Ra’s agent of annihilation, especially of the hostile snakes of the underworld which might threaten the sun-god on his nightly journey.
According to the Pyramid Texts the god Geb awarded the cobra to the king as legitimate holder of the throne of Kemet/ Egypt. More than any other symbol, the uraeus marked out royalty in ancient Egypt, and was worn on the crown or forehead of the pharaoh.
In the myth of the upbringing of Heru the son of Ausar and Auset; she is said to be the nurse. Wadjet /Buto was nurse to the infant Heru and helped Auset, protecting him from his uncle Seth when they took refuge in the Delta swamps. In some myths Wadjet is a form of Nekhbet or Hathor (who is the female aspect of Ptah and in western astrology represent the opposite sun signs of Scorpio and Taurus).
The major delta shrine the ‘Per-nu’ is under her protection. The serpent shaped Uto/Wadjyt was patron goddess of Lower Egypt; her home there was Buto. She and Nekhet, the vulture goddess of Elkah, are the “two ladies” thought to protect the king, embodied in the crown of Upper and Lower Egypt that he wore. She can also appear as a lioness in her role as Eye of Ra. Compare also to Sekhmet and Tefnut
