Yemaya Blessing of the Waters
Event Details: Around the first Full Moon of the year the Temple of the Dark Moon together The Goddess House will be hosting the annual "Blessing of the Waters" at Grange Beach, Adelaide. This event is dedicated to the Africo-Carribean Mami Wata, the "Mother of the Waters", commonly known as Yemaya.
Yemaya, or Ymoja as she was known to the Yoruban people of West Africa, was the Mother of the Ogun River. This is because she was said to have given birth to the world's waters ... and that new springs would appear whenever she turned over in her sleep, and springs would gush forth whenever she walked.
In Brazil, Yemaya is known as Iemanja, in Haiti La Sirene, and in the Dominican Republic Yemalla or La Diosa del mar ("Sea Goddess") . Yemaya is also known as Our Lady of Regla and Stella Maris ("Star of the Sea") .
The "Queen of the Ocean" Yemaya is the patron deity of fisherman as well as survivors of shipwrecks. She is also the feminine principle of creation and the spirit of the moonlight. Therefore it is appropriate that we honour her during the first Full Moon of the year so that her blessings can be carried with us.
You will need to bring an offering for Yemaya such as:
seashells, flowers, or even a stone with perhaps a message or symbol representing your desire drawn upon it. She is known to like champagne, blue chalcedony is considered to be a crystal connected with her, and the star is one of her symbols.
Bring a drum.
Her favourite colours are those reflected by her beloved waters so you may wish to wear clothing that contain blues, silvers and white. A white head scarf (if you have one) should also be worn during this devotional rite
Event Location: Grange Beach in Adelaide
Event TIME Details: 7:30pm to 9.30pm
Directions: We will meet on the grassed area near the public conveniences just prior to 8.00pm where we will then move down to the sands. The ritual will take place around dusk, with the sun setting in the west over the Gulf.
