Know More About The Voodoo Deities of Love
If you have been following me ardently, you must have discovered that I have already talked a lot about voodoo love spells and many other voodoo spells as well. However, I have been able to tell you who the voodoo deities are and the most popular of them. That is what I am going to do in today’s post. The goddesses of love are the best known and popular deities of any pantheon. They are usually related to water and other things like flowers, precious metals, gems and ornaments. They usually encourage sexual freedom. That is, they represent the beauty, love and passion, the sexual and creative principle that generated the universe.
Usually the goddesses of love and voodoo deities of love are fickle and are related to fertility and luck.
Most of these voodoo deities were very liberal in their carnal desires. And although some of them were married, they never cared about infidelity because they were free and indomitable goddesses.
In this sense they represent self-esteem, self-affirmation and freedom. That is why it is said of the goddesses of love that they are somewhat narcissistic and like flattery. The goddesses of love manifest themselves as owners of themselves, although they were also prisoners of love and had a favorite among their various lovers.
On some occasions the goddesses of love are linked to war. The definition of love that these deities represent has always been broad and includes both mother’s love and agape, as well as friendship, eros and sexual love. To the extent that female sexuality was limited. The goddess of love was subjected to new definitions, although, due to her great popularity, none of her aspects was mutilated.
The first of these voodoo deities is Erzulie, the goddess of love
Erzulie is one of the voodoo deities, a member of the Loa that belongs to the Haitian voodoo pantheon. She is the embodiment of the most different aspects of the female deity. Like every goddess, she seems to have emerged from a Great Goddess and changed over time, acquiring different names and characteristics. The goddess of love Erzulie (known more in her aspect of Erzulie / Erzili Freda Dahomey) originated in Benin, West Africa and crossed the Atlantic Ocean with slaves becoming, especially in Haiti, the dominant divinity of the Voodoo pantheon.
Rada is the largest family of loas and voodoo deities, goddesses of love, in the Haitian voodoo.
They include old and beneficial spirits who can be traced directly to Voodoo Dahomey. Rada is a synonym for Aará and the Yorubas orishas. The Rada loas are guardians of morals and principles related to Africa, while the Petro loas are connected to the new world and are considered aggressive. Some loas (like Erzulie) are manifestations of both Rada and Petro.
This is another member of the voodoo deities. Sometimes, she is described as a wounded and injured woman, who holds a child protectively in one hand and in the other a knife. She is a warrior and especially fiercely protects women and children. It is believed that the images of Erzulie Dantor have their roots in the icon of the Black Madonna of Czestochowa, which was taken to Haiti by Polish soldiers fighting on both sides of the Haitian revolution of 1802.
She is the most distressed member of the voodoo deities. Erzulie Ge-Rouge is usually seen crying inconsolably for everything that goes wrong in the world, the lack of love on the planet and complains about not being loved and regrets her unfulfilled dreams. In this sense, the anger and tears that take over the goddess give an account of the archetype of the woman who suffers. She is the goddess who mourns the death of her son and lover. The Haitian voodoo has superimposed the image of the Virgin Mary on the goddess plañidera, or the mother who cries.
