In Which Our Intrepid Blogger Takes a Moment to Savor Life in the Irony-Free Zone

“I work with Ereshkigal, Oya, and Tlazolteotl,” she tells me.

Then she pauses for my reaction.

Welcome to the Irony-Free Zone.

Gee. The Sumerian Goddess of the Underworld, Santeria's Lady of Storms (mispronounced), and the Aztec 'Eater of Filth.'

Clearly, I'm supposed to be impressed.

Maybe I should be a little worried that a Goddess whose message is about communication showed up while Mercury is in retrograde. Those who know me know that I have a hard time restraining my tongue and my rather...strong...opinions at the best of times, and during a Merc Retro I'm even worse. My patience runs very short and my "filter," which is porous enough on a regular day, goes down entirely. Add in that I'm someone who makes much of her living with words, whether by lecturing in front of a classroom, writing articles, or blogging, and anything that interferes with communication can wreak all sorts of havoc in my life.

But Oya, Yoruba Goddess/Orisha of the Winds -- is my guide for this week, and I've learned in my time working with the Goddess that you don't resist. When She wants to talk, She will be heard. And that goes double for the Orishas.
