Ochun, or Oshun is the deity of the river, love, sensuality, and creativity. She has been compared to Venus because she presides
over the arts, healing, gold, love, and all things beautiful.
She rests fully in self-awareness and self-love, glowing in the silver light of the moon,
symbol of the feminine principle. Ochun is Mama of All Waters, on Earth and in the heavens.”
