Oya Warrior Goddess of the Wind. Oya represents the winds of change, and her shrine image is typically shown in this posture. As Yoruban Goddess of the Marketplace she creates change of fortune. She was the wife of Shango , Lord of Thunder and Fertility, and her power is associated with lightning, tornadoes, cemeteries and death. Oya is tall, stately and an Amazon in battle. This is the orisa of power and action; every breath we take is the gift of Oya. Here she nurtures one of her nine children.
