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.
This “automatic” love reading engine is fueled by daily observance as well as special offerings to Orisha Orunmila, Ogun, and Sheloya’s personal spirit allies, to promote accuracy. It is provided for cultural and entertainment purposes only, and not meant to replace professional advice or therapy. There is very little chance that the reading will come out totally wrong, but if it seems a bit grim it doesn’t mean all is definitely lost. On the other hand, even if it is relatively positive, it doesn’t mean that nothing can go wrong. Though the road may be somewhat predestined, how we choose to travel and our attitude about it is still up to the individual.
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.
The Ancestors say that you are not a match.
The person you are asking about does not belong in your family, or the time that they have spent with you is enough. They have served their purpose and are of no further use to you.
If you have children with them already, and they are not abusive, you should try to maintain amicable relations with them for the sake of the children. Otherwise, walk away and do not look back.
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.
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.”
Anything that doesn’t change is dead.
If you want a relationship of any kind to last for life, it must be above the circumstances. The constant circumstance of everything in the Universe is change. Even a life itself will change because it will end. To hold onto someone until the end, one must be willing to hold on in spite of the fact that they will change, and often in ways that will not be pleasant or convenient.
People get injured. People grow old. People find out new things about themselves. Things happen.
On the one hand, you may want to be careful about making promises that you can’t keep. You also have a right to your own limits and boundaries. You should not accept mistreatment or abuse from someone just to hold onto them or to keep a promise of love. You can love someone a lot, but it may not be safe to be around them.
On the other hand, some things are not about mistreatment but about circumstances that nobody had real control of. Instead of breaking a relationship because of the circumstances, perhaps consider renegotiating.
Sometimes in our youth or the blindness of romance, we make deals that ultimately turn out to be bad, or under bad terms. As you grow and change, it’s okay to sit and have a talk about where things are and where they will go from here.
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.
