SACRED UNION ORACLE - BARON SAMEDI AND MAMAN BRIGITTE

 


Baron Samedi and Maman Brigitte are the Haitian Vodou death loas (spirits). They can be found at the crossroads between the living and the dead. They either escort mortals through the portal of death or can be called upon to cure those who are near death. They are amongst the most respected and powerful of the loas in Vodou. They are lewd, crude and charming. They like to drink rum, smoke cigars and are accompanied by a black rooster. 

Baron Samedi and Maman Brigitte are the head of the Ghede family, the loas of life and death, and heritage. Maman Brigitte is tied to the Celtic Goddess Brigid and was incarcerated into Vodou by incarcrated Irish women sent to work on the plantations. She is the guardian of cemeteries. 

Baron Samedi and Maman Brigitte teach us to enjoy life while we are living and to not fear death. Their irreverence lightens the passage between the worlds. 

Sacred Union Oracle is a work in progress, it will be published in 2022.
