Oya is one of the most powerful African Goddesses, a Warrior-Queen, and the protectress of
women. She can change from benevolent, caring Mother to destructive Warrior in the blink of an
eye. Oya rules lightning, fire, tornadoes, earthquakes and storms of all kinds.
Passionate, fearless, sensual and independent, Oya is not a Goddess to be invoked lightly and must
be treated with respect and care.”
