Oshun (also spelled Ochún, Oṣun or Oxum) is known as the Orisha of love, beauty, femininity and sensuality which leads many people to compare her to Venus or Aphrodite. Such a comparison is short-sighted, however, for Oshun is vast and powerful; she is actually the full breadth of womanhood. From the young, enthusiastic coquette that flirts with boys to the old matriarch that sits in a rocking chair, hard-of-hearing, reminiscing of her youth, Oshun contains every woman’s story within her patakis (paths). Everything_soulful_Oshun

She is known for healing the sick, cheering the sad, bringing music, song and dance, as well as bringing fertility and prosperity.  She is the protector of the poor, the mother of all orphans, she is the one who brings them what they need in this life through periods of weakness or strength.

Oshun makes her residence in the rivers of the world as she is the Mother of the African sweet or fresh waters.  Hers is the power of sweetness in life, and all of the things that make life worth living.
