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 warns of deception.
The person you are asking about has lied to you about something important. They are not the person they seem to be.
It could be something simple, the way people present their “best selves” in a new relationship.
It could be something major, like they are married already or living a double life in some way.
Either way, you are being alerted that something isn’t quite what it appears to be.
Be careful. Do not ignore the signs.
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 brings love to this relationship.
This means the one you desire has feelings for you.
However, if the others do not approve then it means those feelings can’t really go anywhere good. If the Ancestors don’t approve, it is a complete bust. They are just there to basically give your heart some exercise.
If it’s just Eshu who doesn’t approve though, maybe some offerings might do some good. Get to the crossroads and get it done.
Be more old fashioned.
Times have changed, and now people have many choices for the kinds of relationships that are possible. In many places, you can now live in at least a relative peace with your male, female, intersex, or multiple partners. You are even free to explore yourself and change, or to never choose a specific label. This is a wonderful time to live in because even where there isn’t so much freedom, it is clear that freedom is coming. It is inevitable because love is stronger than hate.
Thing is, though the times have changed and most of us have more options, people still need to eat, to sleep, and have other basic needs that have to be met. So ideals are wonderful, but you need good practical actions to make your dreams a reality.
Think about the goals of your relationship. You love them and they may love you too, but love neither pays the bills nor cleans the toilets. In order for people to stay alive in today’s world, there needs to be providers of resources and managers of resources. Historically, these jobs went to at least two different people, usually more when extended family was available.
If you are finding that your relationships stagnate or fizzle out or break when things start to get serious, it may be that you don’t have the practical skills it takes to be more than amusement, or you are choosing partners who don’t. This or because someone who anticipates a role as a provider of resources does not see you as a good manager, or someone who anticipates being a manager does not see you as a good provider. Perhaps someone with a combination of skills doesn’t see you as a compatible balance.
If you’re seeing this message, you need to think about your role. What do you see yourself actually doing for your partner? What are you bringing to the table? It may not be all about gender roles anymore, but some do coincide with practical skills and abilities and biological realities.
Male, female, or somewhere in between, we all need to have home building skills to build homes.
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.
