Thanks for clearing this up Rodney - it makes much more sense now.

I read-up on Amun and see you are correct in that he was 'self-created' and that he fathered Tefnut and Shu without his wife's aid (Mut) - wonder where she appeared from though? Perhaps she's a 'later' goddess that was then attached to Amun?

I agree it's a little frustrating that Barrett doesn't explain all the symbolism he's used, but I don't mind too much. It gives us the opportunity to research these things ourselves and adds a bit more mystery to this deck.
