#SS-YO
Oshun, the Yoruban Goddess of love, delights in the creation of beauty and art, sensual delights and self-adornment.

Originally, Oshun was named after the river that bears her name.

She actually was the embodiment of the river, and to this river came the Yoruba people of Nigeria, one of whom was a princess. The princess jumped into the river and drowned, but soon after the funeral she reappeared wearing gorgeous garments given to her by Oshun. Oshun's chief festival commemorates this event and still takes place today in Nigeria.

Oshun watched over slaves during their treacherous passages by boat to far away lands, and on this side of the Atlantic she gained several new identities but kept her flirtatious nature and her connection to rivers and water.

    Her symbols are mirrors, jewelry, honey, golden silks and feather fans. Creativity in decorating home and temple is a way of honoring Oshun, who will bless any beautiful space created in Her honor.

There is no object so common that Oshun will not appreciate more if it is made artistic and pleasing to the eye. Creativity in dress and self-adornment please her as well, and when Oshun is pleased, her blessings know no limits.

This Yoruba goddess heals through love and can heal both physical hurts and emotional wounds due to lack of love...including self-love.
