|Mami Wata 1999, by Moyo Ogundipe|
It’s Mothering Sunday here. The Moon (Mama) is in the sign of the Fishes, coming up to conjunct the Sun in a day or so.
Mama Wata, Yemanya, La Sirene — these are all names for the mother of the ocean worshipped in West Africa, Brazil, the Caribbean and more.
Happy Mother’s Day.
