Yemaya, the great mother who rules over the seas, is maternal, yet fierce. Her punishments can be severe. However, she is fair-minded and forgiving when proper remorse is shown. Being clever and brave, when she goes to war, she wields a machete with expertise and no one can defeat her. Her number is 7 and her eleke, sacred beads, are made of transparent crystal beads alternating with royal blue ones in a pattern of seven. Saturday is her day and her colors are blue and white. Her dress represents the ocean. She likes verbena perfume. Even though as a mother, she is wise and virtuous, she likes to have a good time and enjoys dancing. When she does dance, she begins slowly and gracefully, but as she swirls and moves her skirts to reflect the rhythm of the waves, she also builds up intensity and speed, showing her immense power.
