Orishas, Goddesses, and Voodoo Queens
Orishas, Goddesses, and Voodoo Queens by Lilith Dorsey.
Excerpt from the back cover:
Throughout Africa, the divine feminine has long been revered in forms of goddesses and other sacred beings such as the primordial Nana Buluku, water spirits like Yemaya, Oshun, and Mami Wata, and the warrior orisha Oya. Their power has taken root in the West and expanded. New Orleans, for example, is the home of Marie Laveau, who used her magickal gifts and powers to become the Crescent City's eternal Voodoo Queen.
Orishas, Goddesses, and Voodoo Queens shows us all how to celebrate and cultivate the traits of these sacred beings, drawing upon their strengths to empower our own lives. Offering a guided tour of various African and African diaspora religious traditions, as well as modern importations such as Santa Muerte, the book features magickal spells, rituals, potions, astrological correspondences, sacred offerings, and much more to help guide you on your own transformational journey.
