Control Of The Seasons In The New Kingdom
The atmosphere was untamed in the world and Arganyu and Yemaya decide to divide the atmosphere for the benefit of the kingdom and future generations to come. Yemaya said to her new Oku ( husband) that since he was the one that heated the earth with his solar rays, that she in return could refresh the earth with her Omi’rure with the help of the winds of Oya who could take the water to the heavens when the earth was to warm ,and allow it to fall. As well , she reminded him that when he is to full of desire he forgets about the beings on earth and scorches the earth. **The Yoruba see Yemaya as the moon at night in the form of Nana Buruku forever chasing her Oku ( husband) to be closer to him as he is the Sun. Arganyu then says to Yemaya .. When you are angry , you try and swallow the earth or make your waters to cold , I will shine in the sky and warm them up . Thus they achieve balance between them to make the weather on earth beneficial for everyone. There relationship lasted many years and all on earth benefited from this Union but alas Yemaya concluded that although she loved Arganyu there time together was coming to a end. She knew there was more for her to do in the kingdom and therefore she wanted to separate from him. So Yemaya left for the home of Oshun, were she thought with Oshun’s help and enchantments that Arganyu would forget her over time, and Oshun would be able to fulfill his sexual desire, Yemaya decides to unite Oshun with Arganyu and bring them together . Once at Oshuns door, Oshun was happy to see her mother , but knew something must of been wrong as she could see it on her mother’s face what she was about to propose to her.
