Love is a wonderful gift from Oshun. It is the reason mankind hasn’t died out. Every creature from the tiniest microbe to the largest sea mammal seeks some sort of union and affection in its way. As crucial as love is to life though, it can be wrought with fear and frustration. To help clear away some confusion and figure out whether you are compatible with someone you love, or if there may be some problem, I do a love reading. It’s a fast way to at least know where things stand at the moment.
If you just want to know quickly what the Orishas have to say about your relationship right now, here it is:
Eshu has bestowed you luck in love.
Right now, you are at a high point in your luck in seduction or matters of the heart. If you state your feelings sincerely or go out to flirt within the next three days, you have a better chance than normal of success.
To confirm your blessing, you should give Eshu some sort of offering. These can be given at a crossroads, a corner, or an in-between place like between two trees or between two buildings.
You are HOT right now.
Your Ancestors are neglected.
They might bless your relationship if you gave them more attention.
Visit the grave or memorial site of a benevolent relative who has passed on. If you know their favorite food, make it and bring it to them as an offering. If possible, bring flowers and some good liquor as well.
If you don’t have access to their grave, you may take some offerings to the sea or to a crossroads. You may also have offerings given on your behalf by a mystic or priest of your ancestral faith.
Oshun demands investment.
Oshun, the Orisha of love is also the Orisha of prosperity, and a spouse of the Orisha of currency, Aje Shaluga. There is a saying, “There is no ebbo without Aje Shaluga.”
In African belief systems, we never go to the spirits emptyhanded. This would be disrespectful. Metaphysically, across all belief systems, esoterics and mystics understand that energy flows, and if we want our prayers answered, the energy to make things manifest must come from somewhere. So we give offerings.
If you get this message, it could mean that you need to give offerings to Oshun. If you are taking or anticipating the provider role in your relationship, it could also mean that you need to invest more resources in your partner or potential partner. Take them on a real date. Buy them gifts. Do something to show that you are willing to invest resources in your relationships.
…and also give offerings to Oshun since she is the provider of romantic and bonding sentiments.
If you are the more conventionally feminine, homemaking, and nurturing partner in your relationship, this message could mean that it is your loved one who is too stingy with their resources. Their lack of investment indicates either a lack of commitment, or that you are not expressing your needs enough.
You have no call to be insecure. Your worth is not measured in how much money you make or don’t, same as theirs. You love them even though they are giving you little or nothing materially. They should love you the same.
The only difference is one of delegation of roles. Whatever gender either of you are, if you are the one who tends to cook, make sure everyone is well, clean up, and take care of people’s practical needs, your partner needs to be supportive, or this relationship will not make it into the long term.
If they make you feel bad for asking for things like going on a real date or things to make your life easier so you have time and energy for them, something is wrong there. Change it sooner rather than later or you are teaching them a bad lesson about life and love. “Love is a verb.”
Romantic love is not convenient.
Convenient love is not romantic.
You can’t fully have both. You need to decide which one it is that you want or which one is best for you.
If you choose romantic love, you can’t be overly concerned with society’s or family’s expectations or demands from you. You will have to either learn to love from afar, while giving your sentiments and the object of your passion the respect and support that you can, or you will have to fight.
Pursuing your passion is not easy, but it is usually worth the fight.
Sometimes it is not. Sometimes you haven’t fully thought things through. You may be willing to fight now, but will you still be willing when this person ages? Will you still be willing if your gamble on your passions leads you to poverty or at least fewer resources because of being shunned by your family or society? Are you willing to take the chance that it might or might not be worth it to the one you love? Are they willing to fight the fight at your side? Do you want them to?
If you take the convenient choice of being alone until you meet Mr. Ms. or Xr. Right, you may be more accepted, but will this make you want to wake up every morning and keep going? Be honest. There is no shame in being a “conformist”. Not everyone is built for fighting, especially since we are all mortal and have a limited number of years to have children or fulfill our life’s mission.
To be heroic in love is good for some but not for others. Either way, what you don’t want is to wake up one day realizing that you’ve been living someone else’s life and not your own. In matters of the heart and family it is especially crucial to take the lessons of your Ancestors.
You have many choices to make.
Once you commit to a choice, so long as you have been honest, respectful, and sincere, you will be blessed.
This does not necessarily mean that everything is okay or that all hope is lost. It’s just speaking as to how things are at this moment, or what could be if things continue the way they are going.
You are not powerless.
You can request a love reading or bone reading by hand, or you can order a standard working, donate to an ebbo, or request custom root work.
