Apophis

Apophis 99942

Apophis is the ancient Egyptian personification of pure evil, depicted as a huge serpent with a head of flint, with no redeeming quality whatsoever. An enemy of the solar deity Ra, bringer of light, who supported the truth and order represented by Maat, Apophis was an embodiment of chaos and disorder, fundamentally opposed to all they stood for.

Astrologically, Apophis represents an inimical or evil influence or individual, one committed to destruction and anarchy. Apophis is also associated with the commission of horrible, unforgiveable acts, and appears frequently in the charts of mass shootings, terrorism or extreme cruelty, either in the events themselves or the natal charts of their perpetrators.
