Unlock the Ancient and Powerful Mysteries of Africa's Feminine Divine.

Throughout Africa, the divine feminine has long been revered in the forms of goddesses and other sacred beings such as the primordial Nana Buluku, water spirits like Yemaya, Oshún, and Mami Wata, and the warrior orisha Oya. Their power has taken root in the West and expanded. New Orleans, for example, is the home of Marie Laveau, who used her magickal gifts and powers to become the Cresent City's eternal Voodoo Queen.
Orishas, Goddesses, and Voodoo Queens shows us all how to celebrate and cultivate the traits of these sacred beings, drawing upon their strengths to empower our own lives. Offering a guided tour of various African and African diaspora religious traditions, as well as modern importations such as Santa Muerte, the book features magickal spells, rituals, potions, astrological correspondences, sacred offerings, and much more to help guide you on your own transformational journey.

"This book is a must-have for anyone seeking practical and authentic knowledge on how to begin their journey into the multifaceted worlds of African tradional religions. I truly enjoyed it. It is a fantastic read and a book I shall return to many times."
- Najah Lightfood, author of Good Juju: Mojos, Rites & Practices for the Magical Soul
