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 closed the way for the relationship to move forward.
Things are staying as they are, or it will stop at this point.
This means that there is some blockage or that Eshu is himself blocking the way. Be advised that this could be for your protection.
The Ancestors want children from this match.
Well, they at least want you to have consensual sexual relations with the object of your desires. You should try to seduce them if it is at all possible.
If you have been dragging your feet, this is your signal to make a move or commit. If you have been too proud to initiate, or you think you are out of their league, then this is the message to put your ego aside.
This person is a gift for you that you should not take for granted. If you mess it up or can’t get your ego out of the way of your heart, you may lose your chance.
If the Ancestors are conflicting with Eshu, it means that you should either “hit it and forget it” or keep things focused around having children and/or appearances if needed. Do not expect to have an all-around relationship with this person. They are to serve a specific purpose in your life…at least this is how they should be treated. They may care for you, but some people’s background does not allow for much intimacy or any possible room for any illusion that they can afford to not perform their function. This is a common divination result nowadays when people have a “disney” idea of romance that they can for example, not feed their children properly and still be viewed as a good parent, or stress and neglect their partner sexually and still expect monogamy. Some people you have to seemingly mistreat or be harsh with in order to keep them.
If the Ancestors are conflicting with Oshun, it could mean that you are the one in the relationship with the crazy demands or belief that you can be dysfunctional and still have or keep a partner. For some reason, no matter how messed up you are, your Ancestors are loving and strong, and they know that you will have a good life if you stick with this person. So even though you are having doubts about your feelings because you know your potential partner is demanding or “high maintenance”, being with them will be good for you, and your feelings are not what is important because you are flakey and fickle. So your partner is like vegetables. Not your favorite food, but the best thing for you.
Alternatively, if there is a conflict with both Eshu and Oshun, it could mean that your potential partner doesn’t feel much for you, or would definitely not be good for the long term, but they are good breeding material. The babies would be healthy and/or very good additions to humanity.
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.”
Love is a madness.
It is a beautiful madness, but it is a madness. Regardless of how strong and adaptable we humans are, and how mortal we know that we and our loved ones are, we believe that without them the quality and value of our lives are reduced. Even if they do nothing for us practically, we feel attached to them.
It’s okay to feel. Just try to keep the feelings in context. Losing your head will not help you to make the love healthy. At the same time, being too reserved or inhibited won’t move the love forward.
So accept that it is madness. This is what it is supposed to be. So you can be calm and find the joy in it regardless of whether or not it is returned.
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.
