Happy Ellegua’s Day!

Today is the feast day of Ellegua for practitioners  in the Yoruba/Santeria/Lukumi religion. Ellegua is an orisha who opens the ways: he’s both good and bad luck. A warrior, he is the alpha and omega in Yoruba cosmology, often depicted as a child and mischevious prankster. To me, Ellegua is a wise spirit who urges us to stay in tune with the forces of nature around us.
