The Goddess Yemaya & Resources
Yemaya or Yemoija isn’t a goddess at all in the new-age sense. In West-African Yoruba tradition, she is the Orisha (a spirit sent by Creator Olodumare to assist humanity) associated with the ocean. Her veneration is also seen in other Afro-Carribean traditions such as Santeria. Yemaya is the Mother Goddess of the seas. She is sometimes depicted as a mer-maid clad in white and blue.
Yemaya is depicted here to remind us that sometimes we must surrender the idea of control in order to achieve peace. This may sound counter intuitive, when we allow ourselves to buy into the illusion that the more we can control around us the happier we will be. This isn’t how life works. Sometimes we must surrender ourselves to chaos and to the emotions which are impeding our progress.
Yemaya comes to us as a mother and comforts us as we confront our deepest fears. A good mother is one that can nurture and help guide her children towards finding their truth. She prepares them for the time when she will no longer be able to help them and they must walk their own path.
This leads into the second card of the oracle pull. Starcodes Astro Oracle shows us the card ‘Resources.’
The Universe reveals to us that we are changing our relationship with the physical / material world around us. This can be how we view resources, money for example. Maybe we are budgeting and prioritizing our bills in such a way that we are creating financial stability. It could be exploring our worth and allowing others to treat us with respect. Resources can also be what boons or gifts are coming to us and how we plan on using those resources to help develop the spiritual side of ourselves.
There’s some huge growth going on for someone. If you’re reading this and this feels right, please let me know. Thank you for reading and have a blessed day. – Shining Quill
What are Oracle Cards?
Tarot cards are similar to Oracle cards in that they are used for obtaining information related to universal messages and fortune telling. Oracle cards tend to provide a more general overview than specific knowledge about a topic. Oracle decks tend to be smaller than Tarot decks. Oracle cards also have a broader range of themes than traditional tarot cards. This is just a basic overview of what Oracle cards are, if you’re interested in more information – I have resources for you!
