Yoruba African Orisha Oshun. She is called the Orisha Of love and prosperity. She is beautiful, charismatic and has great taste in everything. She appreciates the finer things in life. She is graceful and loves to dance. Oshun represents the things that make life worth living. Oshun loves her children and will give them almost anything. She is a witch, and will throw spells, especially love spells. Oshun will get you pregnant but she isn’t a huge fan of babies so at some point in a pregnancy, Yemaya (her mother) will take over. At her worst Oshun can be very insecure and she hates being poor. She may marry for money. She is constantly getting her heart broken because she gives so much and can never really find someone who can give her back all that she needs. When preparing an altar to Oshun, make sure it is pretty. The space should be clean and smell good. She loves yellow, amber and gold.
