Oya is one of the most powerful African Goddesses (Orishas). A Warrior-Queen, She is the sister-wife of the God Shango, to whom She gave the power to create storms. Much of Oya’s energy is rooted in the natural world; She is the Goddess of thunder, lightning, tornadoes, winds, rainstorms, and hurricanes. A Fire Goddess is Oya, who brings rapid change and aids us in both inner and outer transformation.
Oya is both loved and feared, and for a 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 genuine enough; for a 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.
