Nut is both wife and sister to Geb, the earth god. The two are deeply in love and will never act in a manner that is harmful to the other. Because Ra had forbidden Nut and Geb to have children, she was forced to resort to trickery to bear her five young. Since Ra had decreed that Nut could not give birth on any day of any month of any year, she went to Thoth for help. Thoth managed to capture some of the moon's light and used it to create five new days (outside of Ra's domain). On each of these days, Nut gave birth to a new god.
In her true form, Nut appears as a tall, slender woman whose body is the black of the night sky. She sparkles with starlight and is enchanting to behold. Omens from Nut always take the form of patterns in the stars.
Nut is as devoted to her husband Geb as he is to her. They are kept apart by Shu and the order of Ra that forbids them from having any more children. Nut is very sensitive to the concerns of those who are forbidden to marry the one they love and will often send her followers to help out such couples.
Duties of the Priesthood
Priests of Nut are always female. Although they are permitted to love and expected to be true to their mates, they are forbidden to marry. Marriage services presided over by priests of Nut are considered a sure sign of conjugal bliss
