I find it difficult to figure this all out and keep them straight.

How do you do it?

I really enjoyed that book in general although her Aset/Isis section annoyed me since she mentions Plutarch for a lot of it. 

I view them as aspects of that deity.  As in Aset as Mehet Weret is a creator goddess who can be in the form of a cow or a hippo, Aset as the Eye of Ra is the fiery cobra who protects the sun god and creates human kind from her tears, etc.  Gods are far more complex than we give them credit for I think. 

I also know that Mehet Weret and Iryt Ra (Eye of Ra) are deities of themselves.  But I also think they are epithets and even parts of Mysteries of certain gods which describe certain functions and aspects of those deities.

I am the Goddess of Who I can Become. I mix the magic of the sorceress with the blade of a warrior. I walk the liminal pathways to see the face of the Goddess, both terrible and kind. As She stares back at me, I tremble in awe and ecstasy.  --Me
