In this episode of ODWIRA, we examine our 4-part series on the Obosom (Goddess) Bast. We elucidate Her function as the Obosom who mediates affection, the perpetuation of the fusion of complementary opposites. We also address the role of Bast in divination in the context of learning who is one's harmonious complement. As stated in our series:
