Oshun is the Yoruba orisha (spirit, deity, or goddess) of fresh waters, love, and divination. She is often pictured admiring herself in a mirror. Because of her undeniable sex appeal, many see her self admiration as vain, vapid, or shallow.
There’s an endless power in self-love and self-reflection. Self-love is never being afraid of seeing yourself and admiring yourself. Respecting your worth. Understanding ourselves. Forgiving ourselves. Improving ourselves.
Oshun teaches us that there is magic in loving and admiring yourself. Oshun shows us there is magic in self-confidence. Oshun wants us to know the magic in looking in the mirror.
