In Egyptian mythology, Sekhmet /ˈsɛkˌmɛt/
or Sachmis (/ˈsækmᵻs/; also spelled Sakhmet, Sekhet, or Sakhet, among
other spellings) is a warrior goddess as well as goddess of healing. She
is depicted as a lioness, the fiercest hunter known to the Egyptians. It
was said that her breath formed the desert.
Sekhmet (Sakhmet) is one of the oldest
known Egyptian deities. Her name is derived from the Egyptian word "Sekhem"
(which means "power" or "might") and is often translated as the
"Powerful One" or "She who is Powerful". She is depicted as a
lion-headed woman, sometimes with the addition of a sun disc on her
PS: The Goddess Bastet has NO sun disk over
Figsbury Ring, Firsdown,
Wiltshire. Reported 22nd July.
Another spectacular pictogram. My interpretation is somewhat more
romantic than the message possibly intended as it clearly represents the
zodiac symbol for Leo (July 22nd – August 21st,
thereabouts.) Whatever the means used to create the latest two works of
art in the farmer’s fields of England, manmade or ‘otherwise’, I am in
awe of the precision and detail involved.
Besides Sekhmet/Lion this could also have to do with
the Scarab motif, i.e. a combination of both. The scarab is supposed to
collect shit and dump it in a hole, from which new life arises. Fact is
that consciousness arises mostly from negative experience. With positive
experience there is not much to think and meditate about, there is
simply no big reason. To be positive, see positive and think positive is
key. In the omnipresence of god everything has some sense and justness,
that we will be able to understand in the end.
This formation is closely related to the Eastfield-formation and the
simple Seven-Acre-Wood-formation. Both formations also appeared on July
The Eastfield-formation connects the very past (the beginning of history
with the beginning of the year 1 of the Hebrew calendar as a marker)
with the near future, to be more precise with a period of 17 weeks or 4
lunar months in future: November 18. The very past relates to the fall
of man which is a burden that humanity still carries with.
This formation probably refers to the goddess Sekhmet, but the devilish
pointed ears relate to the fall of man. Interestingly the formation has
two times 17 feathers/manes and is also connected with 17 weeks in
future (November 18) as well as another 17 weeks later, which is March
17, 2017. Note that there is a double 17 in the date as well. Legend has
it that we should fear Sekhmet for her wrath and sometimes wipes out
almost all of humanity. The path that humanity is walking creates the
wrath of Sekhmet.
It is likely that mankind will experience this during the time span of
17 weeks of November 18, 2016 until March 17, 2017. The circle of
Figsbury Ring symbolizes the end of an age, the age of the fall.
For other relations with the past and the relationship with Mercury and
Venus, see the Eastfield-formation and the Seven-Acre-Wood-formation:
On first impression,
the face staring up from below Figsbury Ring struck me as lion-like. So,
naturally, I found Alex MacDowell’s remarks concerning Sekhmet appealing:
there was the fearsome Egyptian goddess, crowned with solar disk, staring
up from the English countryside.
But I was bothered
because the visage struck me as neither fierce, nor leonine. Could it be
another creature; and if so, what? Upon reflection, I found myself
thinking that perhaps I was looking into the face of a bat. “Oh, really,
a bat?!” Yes.
As I see it, the sharp
pointed ears and triangular nose encircled by a halo of wings—edgy and
stylized; more evocative than realistic—are bat-like. Furthermore, the
open mouth is devoid of teeth. A toothless lion?! Was the great
huntress, Sekhmet, toothless? I found myself wondering, what artist
would depict any lion or lioness as toothless; except, perhaps, in
feeble old age?
But a bat, mouth agape,
clicking away in echo-location? Well, yes!
interpretation is not without problems: How explain the solar disk (?), a
crown more befitting of Sekhmet than, say, Camazotz (In Mayan mythology,
Camazotz was a fearsome bat-monster
Camazotz) (But the presence of the solar disk—unmistakable, and
impossible to ignore—is equally problematic for those favoring Lewis
Carroll’s Cheshire cat for unless one is determined to fit evidence to
preconceived ideas, how does one explain it?)
Unable to explain the
solar disk though I am, yet having no better idea in mind, I decided to
pursue the bat angle. Was the place name—Figsbury Ring—a hint? In that
case, might the face staring up from below the ancient Neolithic hill
fort be that of a fruit bat? If so, what would it mean?
Bats are mammals that
fly like birds. Some are feared as blood-sucking carnivores; others, are
revered as fruit tree-pollinating vegetarians.* They live in caves and
other dark places, frequently underground; yet they come out into the
world in search of food or prey. They have eyes, and some reportedly see
well; but they are unique in their ability to navigate through darkness
by means of echo-location.
This obvious and
recurrent duality cannot be ignored. Is it any wonder that cultures
around the world perceive bats to be alternately frightening and
loathsome, or mystical and benign? Furthermore, could this be the key to
the crop circle? Have the circle-makers chosen to direct our attention
to things that are not as they appear on first impression?
*My quick online research turned up a fascinating, and instructive,
tidbit concerning fruit bats. The following was excerpted from Aztecs
at Mexicolore, The Legend of the Bat(legend-of-the-bat-2-the-history).
Not all bat associations were of death, destruction and sorcery, however.
Just as death carries in it the seeds of new life, so the bat was
recognised as having an important role to play in supporting life. As
Elizabeth Benson writes, ‘Some of the plants most important to people in
the New World tropics are bat-dependent.’ To give just one example,
provided by UK bat expert Mary Louise Crosby, “Many different kinds of
fruit-eating bats LOVE fresh figs. [Emphasis supplied.] The
bats digest their meal of figs quickly, the seeds pass through the bats’
digestive tracts and are expelled in feces or droppings as the bats fly
or roost. In a single night a single bat could plant thousands and
thousands of fig tree seeds over acres of countryside.’ Fig tree
bark paper, incidentally, was an important material for manuscript
writing in ancient Mexico [Emphasis supplied.] - follow the link

Thanks to all other comments here, Crop Circles once
again seems to be multilayered hieroglyphic messages.
Sekhmet was my first clear guess, but since the
beginning I was aware that this Crop Circle has slitted eyes, as
cats, not lions. At same time it really reminds me a bat and a
monkey. Both don't have slitted eyes.
Maybe it's a chimera of all these animals and Gods. So,
to make our research even more funny and mysterious, I would like to
send images of possible other matches, listed below:
1) As said before, SEKHMET: the Egyptian lioness headed
goddess of War and Healing. Usually crowned by a Sun disk.
2) BASTET: The Egyptian cat headed goddess of cats,
protection, joy, dance, music, family, and love. Usually not crowned
with the Sun disk, but has slitted eyes cos she's a cat.
3) MENHIT: Egyptian lioness headed goddess of lions and
war in Egyptian mythology. She is the wife of the god Anhur, also a
god of war. Usually crowned by a Sun disk.
4) TEFNUT: ancient Egyptian lioness headed goddess of
water and fertility. Usually crowned by a Sun disk.
5) THOTH: the Egyptian God of Knowledge. Usually
depicted with an Ibis head. He also appears as a dog-faced baboon or
a man with the head of a baboon when he is A'an, the god of
equilibrium. Found with the sun disk over his head, too.
6) There's no bat god for ancient Egyptians, but there's
a Zapotec / Maya one called CAMAZOTZ: Camazotz means "death bat" in
the K'iche' language. In Mesoamerica the bat was associated with
night, death, and sacrifice.
Pictures of each one attached, named after the

curious, and appealing! Could it be that the face staring up from
below Figsbury Ring is a chimera—a “mythical animal with parts
taken from various animals”—possibly, in this instance, a winged
stretch; but how intriguing?! What could it mean?
Baum created winged monkeys for his childrens’ story, The
Wonderful Wizard of Oz, published in 1900. Thirty-nine years
later, on the eve of World War II, the iconic MGM film, The Wizard
of Oz, portrayed them as minions of the Wicked Witch of the West,
who sent them to capture Dorothy and her friends; however, in Baum’s
original, they were enslaved by the Golden Cap. Could this,
perhaps, shed light on the solar disk depicted in the crop circle,
shining over the chimera’s head?
it does or does not, the metaphorical power of the winged monkey—a
hideous, malignant creature enthralled by an evil overlord—has stayed
with us for over 100 years. Consider that “flying monkey” is the
term widely used in popular psychology to characterize a needy person
in thrall to a narcissist, who does the latter’s bidding, incapable
of thinking or acting autonomously for him- or her-self.
Is it a
stretch? Yes, undoubtedly; but not necessarily false on this basis
alone; unless, a figment of imagination. ;-)

This crop circle shows the alarm of a pet,
probably a cat, at the abundant light given off by a comet (or
all comets) as it streaks across the sky before final impact.
Above, the comet displays a large coma and many rays of light.
The crop circle suggests that people’s pets will suffer and
perhaps become casualties of comet impacts, including the
numerous large and small fragments. The cat’s detailed drawing is
surprisingly humanistic if the circle is not manmade.

from wiki , “He
spent the early years of his career studying echolocation in bats
(and how their food, moths, avoid them) and auditory localization
in owls. Desiring to work with something more directly linked to
conservation he later focused his research on whales where, together
with researcher Scott McVay, in 1967 they discovered the complex
sonic arrangements performed by the male humpback whales during
the breeding season.”

“Around the year 1900 Lord Rayleigh developed the duplex
(combination of two) theory of human sound localization using two
binaural cues, interaural phase difference (IPD) and interaural
level difference (ILD) (based on analysis of a spherical head with no
external pinnae). The theory posits that we use two primary cues for
sound lateralization, using the difference in the phases of
sinusoidal components of the sound and the difference in amplitude
(level) between the two ears.”

Figsbury Ring Crop Formation, July 22
I really like Ken Heck’s comment that separates the cat face from
the rest of the formation. That really clicked. everyone is trying
to figure out what the animal is - a winged cat, a winged lion, a
bat, a skunk, a flying monkey - no, it’s what it looks like, a cat.
What’s left? A winged ball, with feathers or flames coming out of
it, and the whole thing is headed towards Figsbury Ring, which is a
double ring. A double ring which could stand for a filled in circle
with a ring around it, and if so, we have the astrological symbol
for the Sun.
So, then the winged ball is headed for the sun, and it’s scaring
the cat (the cat looks scared to me, so I’m going with that). Also
the cat is looking straight at the viewer, expressing its fear. In
other words, it’s not just a perspective drawing of a scared cat -
the cat has a personal connection with the viewer.
Back to the flaming ball - it’s got feathers. Flaming feathers that
fly in the sky - Quetzecoatl. Who is a messiah type figure,
bringing learning, knowledge, healing, the arts, instruction and
civilization itself - proven by his ultimate gift to humanity,
So why is the cat scared and in our face? Cats carry Toxoplasma
gondii, a parasite which can infect human beings and cause
Intermittent Explosive Disorder (IED), a psychiatric disorder
characterized by recurrent, impulsive, problematic outbursts of
verbal or physical aggression that are disproportionate to the
situations that trigger them - like road rage and other kinds of
uncontrollable anger. In addition, it makes people more likely to
experience schizophrenia, as well as less likely to acknowledge and
avoid known danger.
Yes, it’s a reach, but these crop formations are all symbolic
anyway. Also, ask yourself, does our world seem to have a problem
with uncontrolled, sudden rage that might attract the attention and
concern of nonhuman intelligent crop formation creating beings? How
about the refusal to acknowledge clear and present dangers? Or
crazy thinking? I think perhaps it does.
Also there’s a ball above the cat’s head, which might serve double
duty as an indication of Egyptian divinity - which would be granted
to cats if they invisibly infected human beings to make them change
their behavior into obedient paranoids or denial obsessed servants.
Pharoahs would find such a reliable personality changes highly
useful, and make sure lots of cats were always around, I think.
Like now, too?
So that’s why the cat is scared - if it was a person, then it might
be an actual comet that would scare people. But the scared cat, in
our face no less, stands for the infected parasitical effects
people feel “in their faces,” - and somehow this Quetzacoatl
figure, either headed into or asociated with the sun, is going to
effect that - and already scares it. As love and light will indeed
scare angry paranoia and insolent denial. They’re opposites, after
Finally, the feather count - 17 on each side, for a total of 34.
Taken straightforward, adding the feather count to the date of the
formation’s arrival, gives August 25. Or, two sides of seventeen
feathers might indicate 2017. Or February, 2017.
But whatever the date - it’s coming. And it scares the cat.
