The primary myth of Sekhmet has her as the vengeful lioness who nearly wiped out humanity in bloodlust. Though Ra had first given her the order to destroy those who conspired against him, he realized she was somewhat too good at her job and humanity would cease to exist. In order to stop her slaughter Thoth recommended dying beer red so that she would mistake it for blood, and in her drunkenness, she was placated. In some myths this changes her to the Goddess of love Hathor. Sekhmet is therefore seen as a divine arbitrator of Ma'at, with fearsome titles such as "Lady of Slaughter" and "Mistress of Dread." Like Apollo however, she also has the power to drive away plague and illness, and the priests of her and her son, Nefertem, were some of the most accomplished physicians of the ancient world. Sekhmet in all her forms is a vibrant entity, full of passion for the joys of life and the fearlessness of the warrior.

Orange and other citrus fruits are considered solar fruits. They are said to bring in joy, happiness, abundance, love, even lust, and drive success.

Growing from a tree in tropical areas, it was highly sought for both culinary and medicinal uses. Its antiseptic properties were used throughout the world for medicine especially to ward off infections of the mouth. It removes negativity while also drawing in healing.
