OSHUN is the Yoruban Goddess of love, beauty, marriage, and rivers. Where Yemaya rules over the ocean waters, Oshun has dominion over the sweet inland waters. She is the wife of Shango, the storm God. Oshun is depicted as tall and beautiful, and she wears a mirror at her belt so that she can look at her own beauty. Her name is also seen as OSUN, OCHUN, OSCHUN, or OXUM, and she has been syncretized with OUR LADY OF CHARITY (LA VIRGEN DE LA CARIDAD DEL COBRE). She also is known as OSHUN ANA (Goddess of Luxury and Love), OSHUN TELARGO (the modest one), OSHUN YEYE MORO (the coquette), and OSHUN YEYE KARI (Mother of Sweetness).
