Oshun, in the Yoruba religion, is an Orisha who reigns over love, intimacy, beauty, wealth and diplomacy. Ọṣhun is beneficent, generous and very kind. She does, however, have a horrific temper, one which she seldom ever loses. Oshun is said to have gone to a drum festival one day and to have fallen in love with the king-dancer Shango, god of lightning & thunder. Since that day, Shango has been married to Oba, Oya, and Oshun, though Oshun is said to be considered his principal wife.
