Yoruban Goddess of the Sea, Yemaya, is the Mother of us all. She is a beautiful, voluptuous mermaid that is always there with open arms and open ears. Yemaya is celebrated and known all over the world by many different names: Agwe of Haiti, Imanje or Yemanje of Brazil, Yemaya of Nigeria, the Virgin Mary (Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception), Stella Maris (Star of the Sea), Our Lady of Regla. Her magick is powerful and Her heart is full of love for all that call upon Her.
Yemaya, wears pearls, cowrie shells, and peacock feathers. Yemaya’s colors are blue, silver, and white. Her number is seven and She wears a dress with that number of skirts which represents the Seven Seas. Sacred to Her are peacocks, with their beautiful blue-green iridescent feathers, and ducks with highlights of rainbows.
Let us taste Her salty kisses upon our faces as we are blessed with Her presence to keep us grounded. Yemaya will hold us and give us comfort in times of need. Yemaya teaches us that just as Her waves flow in and out that we too, should go with the ebbs and flows of our changing lives with Her beauty and grace. This is our Temple’s Annual pilgrimage to pray at the shores of the Pacific Ocean for Yemaya’s Blessing and to give gratitude for all that She has given us.
Please wear blue, bring something representative of the Sea for the altar, any mermaid images and a blue candle. She loves offerings of pound cake, watermelon, flowers, and seashells. We will be meeting at the beach so please bring what you need to be comfortable: something to sit on like a blanket or a chair, sunscreen, hat, etc. The weather is very unpredictable so please bring layers. We also spend time in the Ocean so please bring a change of clothes or a bathing suit and a towel or pareo.
