Orisa in Pisces Zodiac (Neptune)

Orisa in Pisces Zodiac (Neptune)

The twelfth house of the Zodiac is ruled by the sign Pisces.



 The Orisa equivalent is Olokun, the god of the ocean floor.




 This house is associated with self undoing and confinement. 



This is reflected in Olokun being confined to the ocean floor by seven chains. 




This house deals with the unconscious and things beyond the physical plane. 




Olokun’s aspects are therefore expressed within the astral, the subconscious, and altered states of consciousness that is experienced during meditation, initiation, and spirit possession. 




Deep and mysterious is this house of the Zodiac, just like the bottom of the ocean; an old Yoruba proverb says that nobody knows what lies on the ocean floor. 




Olokun is said to be the owner of the Mysteries, sparking within our being the genius activating our super subconscious.

The house of friends and membership. 


The eleventh house of the Zodiac is ruled by the planet Uranus and the sign Aquarius. 



Aquarius is associated with rapid social change, upheaval, and rebellion. 




These traits all reflect Sango, the warrior Orisha of thunder, lightning, and fire. Once a living king on Earth, Shango is known for working miracles after his death.




 This elevated him to the status of Orisha. Shango is also the brother of Babalú-Ayé, the Orisha ruler of the tenth house.





 The work in society represented within the previous house is expressed through the individual in the activities associated within this house. 




The planets and energies within indicate how group associations and friendships will operate in your life.

The tenth house is the house of public life and social status, being ruled by Capricorn and the planet Saturn. 




The aspects within this house deal with how you manifest your individual role within society and your work place.





 It also includes the energies and challenges you’ll face meeting your career goals. 




The Yoruba associate the planet Saturn with Babalú-Ayé, the Orisa of disease and healing. 



Also known as the “Wrath of the supreme god”, Babalú-Ayé’s job is to punish individuals for their transgressions. 



He’s also known to heal epidemics like small pox
Orisa in Jupiter zodiac (Sagittarius)

The ninth house is the house of philosophy and is ruled by the philosopher Sagittarius. 



Jupiter, the king of the gods within the Roman pantheon is also the ruling planet of this house. 




Obatala, the father of all the Orisa, would therefore be the Orisha ruler. 



The Orisha of purity, Obatala was sent by the Supreme Being at the beginning of time to form the Earth. 




He also constructed the bodies of humans. Obatala completed his construction of the bodies he created by adding heads to them.





 He therefore became known as the owner of heads. 




The head is symbolic of intelligence, higher education, and deeper understanding, all which the ninth house represents.
Orisa in Scorpio zodiac

Oya, the goddess of winds and storms. She is the equivalent to Scorpio and is the ruler of the eighth house.




 This is the house of transformation, regeneration, death, sex, and rebirth. 




She is the powerful force in nature that can change the face of the Earth. 




She embodies the tornadoes and twisters that uproot trees and houses with her destructive winds. 




This powerful Orisha is also responsible for carrying the spirits of the newly departed to the spirit world.
Orisa in Libra zodiac

The Orisa of marriage and personal transformation is Oba.



 This makes her fit to be the ruler of the seventh house, the house of partnership. Oba was the first wife of Shango who tended to his castle and everything that he requested. 




This made her the ideal wife before being tricked by her sister Oya into trying to ensnare Shango with witchcraft.




 After this betrayal she fled to the cemetery in which she went through a transformational journey into her true power. 




This house is about expediating our life’s purpose through partnerships, whether that partnership be marriage, business relations, contracts, and/or treaties. 




Through these partnerships we learn a great deal about ourselves, transforming and enhancing our lives. 




They make our lives fuller, bringing us balance on the scales of Libra
Orisa in Virgo Zodiac

Orisa in Virgo Zodiac

The Orisha Eshu is the ruler of the sixth house, the equivalent to the sign Virgo. 



Health, work, and service are central to the sixth house. It is ruled by the planet Mercury, the messenger of the gods within the Roman pantheon.




 Esu is the Orisha that stands at the crossroads between the physical world and the spirit world. 



His duty is to be the intermediary between man and the Orisa. 



Therefore, when one wishes to call upon the Orisha, he or she first gets permission from Esu. 



This is symbolic of clearing and preparing the mind to receive whatever message the Orisha have for you.
Orisa in Leo zodiac

The fifth house of the Zodiac is the house of creativity and pleasure, ruled by the sign Leo. 



This house deals with gaining pleasure through acts of creation, artistically and even procreation i.e. the creation of offspring. 





The Sun, the ruling “planet” of the fifth house, is a symbol of creative energy, illumination, and knowledge.





 These are all aspects the Orisha of wisdom, knowledge, and divination Orunmila reflects.





 It is Orunmila’s duty to record the destiny of individuals the moment the breath of life is given to them.
Orisa in Cancer Zodiac

Orisa in Cancer Zodiac

The fourth house of the Zodiac is ruled by Cancer and deals with issues surrounding the home life.




 Cancer is known for being maternal, protective, nurturing, and instinctive. 





These qualities are shared by the Orisha Yemoja, the goddess of the ocean and mother of all the Orisha.




 She is the patron spirit of women, especially pregnant women. 




Her name is a contraction of the Yoruba words “Yeye omo eja” which means “Mother whose children are like fish”. 




This represents the vastness of her motherhood. 




Her ebb and flow of the ocean tides are a result of the moon, the fourth house’s ruling “planet”.
Orisa in Gemini Zodiac

The third house is ruled by the cosmic twins Ibeji, the Orisha equivalent of Gemini.




 This house deals with communication and the way you think and operate mentally.





 An emphasis is put on siblings within this house, properly represented by the twins along with short journeys and writings. Ibeji also represents duality and balance; the yin and the yang found within all life. 




Though presented as twins, Ibeji is actually one Orisha. The Yoruba people consider twins to be sacred. 






They believe them to be one soul inhabiting two bodies, linked together by destiny for life.
Orisa in Taurus Zodiac

Taurus is the ruling sign of the second house, which is the house of possessions. 


This should not only be understood as material possessions but also as traits and characteristics that we value about ourselves. 



The ruling planet Venus is also the Roman goddess of love, whose Orisha equivalent is Oshun. 



Osun is the goddess of fresh water (opposite to the salty, ocean waters of Yemoja), sensuality, prosperity, love, and fertility.




 Oshun’s presented as an attractive young woman widely loved for providing protection and relief for the poor and the sick.
