YEMANJA PRINT: Yemanjá is a goddess of the sea in the Afro-Brazilian religion of Candomblé. She is also venerated in other Afro-American religions such as Santería, Umbanda, and other forms of Yoruba-based religions. In Brazil, Yemanjá is widely worshipped and celebrated on the 2nd of February during the festival of Iemanjá. Yemanjá is associated with the moon, motherhood, fertility, and the cycle of life and death. She is often depicted as a beautiful woman with long hair and a mermaid's tail, holding a seashell or a mirror. Her colors are white, blue, and silver, and her symbols include the fish, the seashell, the moon, and the star. In Candomblé, Yemanjá is considered to be one of the most powerful and respected deities, and she is often called upon to protect fishermen and sailors, to bless marriages and pregnancies, and to heal emotional and spiritual wounds. Her devotees believe that she has the power to calm the storms, to bring prosperity and abundance, and to guide the souls of the dead to the afterlife.
