She is the owner of sweet waters. With her sweetness, she overcomes the most difficult tasks. She is the protector of the abdominal area and the teacher of pleasure and happiness. She is a great giver, but when she is angry, it is very difficult to calm her down. She is often invoked in matters of love and money.
Oshun, like the other Orisha (deity), has a number five associated with her, a color yellow or amber; and a metal gold or bronze. The peacock and the vulture are sacred to her. Offerings to Oshun include sweet things such as honey, mead, white wine, oranges, sweets, or pumpkins, as well as perfume.
I'm combining this goddess with 29 Faces challenge.
