Offerings for Bast

July 1, 2019

In my previous Post Who is Bast? I mentioned that she had a duel nature like day and night. You can see a lot of that present in the types of offerings you can give her. She is a very friendly Goddess and Iโ€™ve noticed that she really just wants your time and attention, so if you want to say prayers to her, go for it. Have a poem or something you wrote to or about her? Read it aloud! Want to have a chat? Pour a glass of wine or brew some tea and sit with her energy. She has brought some memorable moments into my life, reminds me that we have to STOP and just ENJOY whatโ€™s going on around you and nothing screams BAST like a great party!

Below are some offerings you can put out in her Honor

    If my cat eats the food off her offering table, would that be considered disrespectful? He has a tendency of taking food off our plates and counters.

    1. Hi Erica! I feel that Bast would get a kick out of her offerings being taken by another cat, its perfectly fitting! Her nature is playful but she also provided protection not only for food sources but for those who were hungry so I say, feel free to put anything out for her and don’t be alarmed if your kitty snags something off the plates/altar ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Actually Goddess Bastet would not be upset at all! She loves her cats and they are her babies so she would not have a problem at all ๐Ÿ™‚ She would see that as helping her children and she will greatly appreciate you ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I was searching for different offerings for Bast, so I came across this site. I love it by the way! I noticed that you went to school in Hyde Park, I live there. Congratulations on graduating at the Culinary!!! And thanks for the wonderful info!

  3. My shrine is pretty mediocre, I only just started worshipping Bast, and all I have is a candle, a quartz gem, a rock meant to kinda remind her of the desert a little (it has some hardened sand on it, some decorative bandanas and a bluetooth speaker for music. I lit the candle and set up some Egyptian Bast music and simply spoke my mind, asking her to accept my offering of milk. I left the window open for her and last night it rained, so now the rags need washed and dried and I’m thinking of getting/making a statuette or something instead, something nice for her to look at. Now the question, is my shrine good enough, and does she actually take the food offerings when offered.

    1. Hi Lunae! Your shrine is whatever you feel called to put up for her. There are some offering suggestions here and on other websites but I always feel its important to sit with the energy and see what “feels right” to you. Im sure she is appreciative of the space you created and the offering you put out! Hope this helps!

  4. Hello there! Im a new witch and was wondering how long do u leave the offerings out? And what do u do with them after?

    1. Hi Shelby! It depends on what it is, something like milk or a cooked dish I would remove in a couple of hours or absolutely by the following day. Things like beer or wine can last about two days. Offerings of fruit can stay out for a lot longer just check on them periodically, we never want to leave offerings to rot. Things like crystals, incense and candles can stay on as long as you’d like.
