Orisha quiz


Which Orisha Crowns You?


Oya — Oya is one of the most pow­er­ful African God­dess­es (Orishas). A War­rior-Queen, much of Oya’s pow­er is root­ed in the nat­ur­al world; She is the God­dess of thun­der, light­ning, tor­na­does, winds, rain­storms and hur­ri­canes. A Fire God­dess, it is Oya who brings rapid change and aids us in both inner and out­er trans­for­ma­tion. Oya is the guardian of the realm between life and death; as such, She is not only the God­dess of spir­it com­mu­ni­ca­tion, funer­als and ceme­ter­ies but also the God­dess of clair­voy­ance, psy­chic abil­i­ties, intu­ition and rebirth. She can call forth the spir­it of death, or hold it back — such is the extent of Her pow­er. Because of Her affil­i­a­tion to the dead, and Her intense knowl­edge of the mag­ick arts, Oya is also known as “the Great Moth­er of the Elders of the Night (Witch­es)”. Oya is both loved and feared, and for good rea­son: unleashed, Oya is the Sav­age War­rior, the Pro­tec­tive Moth­er, She whose pow­er sweeps all injus­tice, deceit and dis­hon­esty from Her path. She will destroy vil­lages if the need is true enough, for while She under­stands every­thing, She will only accept, act upon, and speak the truth (even when it is hard to bear). Oya is the pro­tec­tress of women and patron of fem­i­nine lead­er­ship. Fierce­ly lov­ing, She is wild­ly unpre­dictable and can change from benev­o­lent, car­ing Moth­er to destruc­tive War­rior in the blink of an eye. Pas­sion­ate, fear­less, sen­su­al and inde­pen­dent, Oya is not a God­dess to be invoked light­ly and must be treat­ed with respect and care. While She will toss you in Her storms of change, and shel­ter you in Her car­ing embrace, She will also strike you down with Her light­ning should the need arise. How­ev­er, do not let that dis­suade you from work­ing with Oya, for She is the Strong Woman, the Bringer of Change and Seek­er of Truth, who can be a most pow­er­ful ally.
