Description

In Santeria, Oshun (known as Oxum in Brazil) is the Orisha who rules the 'sweet' waters- rivers, brooks, and streams. Oshun is closely related to Yemaya, and their aspects sometimes overlap. She is the goddess of love, passion, and sensuality, as well as money and prosperity. Her preferred offerings are honey, copper jewelry or coins (usually in multiples of five). She is most often associated with St. Cecilia, and in Lukumi, she is Our Lady of La Caridad del Cobre, the protectress of Cuba. Her colors are yellow and gold. In Vodoun, Oshun is known as Erzulie. Erzulie's colors are shades of pink. While Erzulie and Ochun are very much alike, Erzulie has a vengeful, implacable aspect when angered. Her aspect Erzulie Dantor is a fierce protector of women, an avenger of domestic violence, and a patron of lesbians

Hello Children of Oshun!!!

I wanted to let you know about Oya: Rise of the Orisha, a superhero movie based upon the Orishas!

I am currently running a crowd-funding campaign to film a taster which will be used as a visual appetizer for feature film funders. We have raised about £2000 in 2 weeks and garnered alot of interest.
We need to raise £5000 in the next 3 week.

It would be amazing if you could share the link with your network.

Me and my team are attempting to bring a culture in a similar way that thor did for norse mythology and 300 for greek mythology. We are sure you are as passionate about orisha culture as us and will be grateful for any help you can give.

Thanks

Ochun (also spelled Oshun) is the Yoruban river goddess or Orisha. She is in charge of romance, flirtation, seduction, love and marriage, fertility, money, and gold. She is the archetype of joy and pleasure.

Traditional offerings to Ochun include a dish of honey (taste it before serving), copper jewelry, river water, yellow candles, peacock feathers, five shiny copper pennies, fans, mirrors, cakes, oranges, eggs and pumpkins.

She is a Venus-like personality in the Yoruban pantheon, and in Haitian Voudou is known as Erzulie. In Haiti she is honored on Tuesdays and Thursdays with offerings of perfume and fancy expensive foods.


Here is a spell for love, invoking the power of Ochun


Ochun Love Spell Ingredients:

One orange

A yellow candle

Honey

Gold glitter

Separate 5 segments of the orange and place them on a plate in star formation. Cover with honey and sprinkle with gold glitter. Write the name of the person you are interested in on a piece of paper, fold it five times, and place it under the yellow candle. Burn the candle five nights in a row while fantasizing about the perfect love you await. At the end of five nights take the ingredients and toss them in a river, stream or creek.

Oshun Prosperity Incense

Brown sugar

Five dried orange leaves

Orange zest

l. Pound the ingredients in a mortar and pestle until roughly pulverized.

2. Place in a cast-iron pan and set aflame.

3. Let it burn for a minute or so, then smother the flames. It should smoke rather heavily; allow the aroma to fill the room.

4. Offer some pure spring water and hone to Oshun and tell her what you need.
