Goddess Oshun


Yoruba goddess of pleasure, Oshun.

Oshun's worship traveled from West Africa to the New World, where Santerian traditions commemorate her.

She is in charge of all bodies of water as well as all sensuous activities.

Oshun, the patroness of ladies and Witches, is hedonistic in nature, participating in any action that promotes joy and pleasure.

She considers jewelry, fragrances, dance, and seashells to be sacrosanct.

Oshun is shown as a dark-skinned lady with wide hips in most depictions.

Oba and Oya make a triad with her.
