In the Yoruba tradition, the Orishas are a pantheon of deities that represent different aspects of nature and human experience. Each Orisha has a specific set of characteristics and associations, such as Oya who is associated with death and change, or Oshun who is associated with love and beauty. Similarly, in astrology, the 12 zodiac signs are also associated with specific characteristics and energies. In this blog, we will explore how the 12 Yoruba Orishas can be directly correlated to the 12 zodiac signs.
Eshu - Aries: Eshu is the Orisha known as the guardian of the crossroads and owner of free will and decision, as well as the ability to bring change and new beginnings.

Yemaya - Taurus: Yemaya is the Orisha of the sea and is associated with motherhood, nurturing, and fertility. Similarly, Taurus is the sign of the zodiac associated with fertility and material security.

It's interesting to note that the correlation between Yoruba Orishas and the zodiac signs is a matter of interpretation and personal belief. While there are similarities in the characteristics and associations of both the Orishas and the zodiac signs, it's important to remember that they come from different cultural and spiritual traditions. The Yoruba Orishas are deities within the spirituality of Ifa and are worshiped, whereas Astrology is not a religion, it's a tool of self-awareness and understanding of the individual's patterns and tendencies.

Furthermore, it's worth noting that this correlation is not a definitive or universally accepted one, but rather one interpretation among many, it's important to keep an open mind and consider multiple perspectives.

In conclusion, the correlation between the Yoruba Orishas and the zodiac signs shows that both systems use symbolism and archetypes to understand and interpret the natural world and human experience. Both offer a unique perspective on the human experience and can offer guidance for our lives. Whether you believe in the Orishas or the zodiac signs, both can be used as a tool for self-discovery and personal growth
