Predictions for 2016 by Mae Eja of Oxum, Priestess at Church of Candomble
The cowrie shells have determined that 2016 will be a year governed by the Orixas Oxala and Iansa. Oxala is the father of all orixas and 2016 will be under the rule of Oxalufan (the older Oxala) and Iansa (Goddess of war and queen of the winds).
Oxala will rule for the first 6 months, Iansa will take over from July. The year will start with lots of rain in january, the rain of Oxala. Nature will show its power, expect lots natural phenomena. But Oxala will be protecting the Earth. It will be a good year for business, new companies and investments. It will also be a good year for romantic unions. Those with existing health conditions, pay attention and be extra careful.
Iansa will rule from July, pay attention as there will be war and conflict in Europe and the Middle East. These countries will have misunderstandings on the path to progress. But according to the Orixas, 2016 will end well, problems will be resolved and the cure to a lot of illnesses will be found.
Tips: In order to give 2016 a good start, wear white on New Year’s Eve. It’s also good to have something silver on you.
