Goddess in the Bedroom: Monday Night

Goddess in the Bedroom:


Oshun (known as Ochún or Oxúm in Latin America) is an orisha, a spirit that reflects one of the manifestations of God in the Ifá and Yoruba religions. She is syncretized with Our Lady of Charity, patron saint of Cuba. Oshun is said to have gone to a drum festival one day and to have fallen in love with Shango.

Oshun is the Yorùbá Orisha (Deity) of the sweet or fresh waters (as opposed to the salt waters of Yemaya). She is widely loved, as She is known for healing the sick and bringing fertility and prosperity, and She especially watches over the poor and brings them what they need. As Orisha of love, Oshun is represented as a beautiful, charming and coquettish young woman. In some tales She is said to be a mermaid, with a fish’s tail.
