Patakie of the sign of Ifa Ogbe Yono:

He guessed for the Moon.

The Moon, the Sun and the stars are the three sons of the divinity of Light. The Sun shines brightly, from sunrise to sunset. The stars shine beautifully at night. For what reason does the Moon show freshness and freshness and decadence?

amaaka ukeregbe sherun
Bodo ukeregbe Sherun
Gbodo Sherun manka manka

Those were the Awoses who guessed for the Moon, advising her to make a sacrifice so that her luck wouldn't waver in a zigzag. He was advised to serve Eshu with a he-goat, rooster, Ekó, bread. After the divination, she thought that it would be superfluous to make sacrifice, since she was endowed with everything anyone could wish for: charm, tranquility, popularity and fame.

Not long after, it appeared on the horizon and everyone rejoiced at its beauty and splendor. It took 28 days to develop to full size.

Eshu got up and went to ask who had been told to make the sacrifice, but refused to do so, and his followers replied that the Moon did not perform the sacrifice. Then Eshu began to blow on it and shrink it, until she became so pale and anemic that no one else bothered to look at her.

Eventually, it paled and became insignificant. That is the reason why after fully blossoming, the Moon begins to deteriorate because of the sacrifice it refused to make at the beginning of time.

When this Odu Ogbe Yono comes out in divination for a newborn child, parents should be advised to make sacrifice to avoid risk of blood disease or blood deficiency during their lifetime.

If it manifests for an adult, you are advised to sacrifice in order to avoid anemia or leukemia.

Where the goat was dismounted

On his way to the land of Dahomey, Omolú took a long time to arrive, he crossed the wild road, then in the town of Shaki he met an Ayaba from that city called Ottanogoso, which had many large and bearded goats that served as horses in those places and when she saw him so tired, she offered Ogbe-Yono, who was Omolú's guide, a goat to continue the journey and gave him a badge so that wherever she went, her servants would offer her presents and a fresh goat.

These accounts of his ileke in the ja and how beautiful stones of his kingdom that identified him as Ayaba de Shaki, made up the insignia that he gave him.

The journey from Shaki to saya delayed five days, five posts passed and in each one of them, when displaying the insignia, he received from the Ottanogoso servants, large gifts of fruits and snails with Ogbe Yono, since then and until his coronation in Dahomey, each day his fame and power of omolú was greater, that later was titled Azojuano, for this reason that the secret of Ogbe Yono is to give five goats to Oshún to be great.

For this reason, the Azojuano vodeunsi ride the goat in their ceremony in memory of the horse that he made from Shaki to Saye and the Awó gives him the goat ridden by the vodeunsi giving five laps around Yardua before mounting it in memory of the five days that Ogbe Yono and Azojuano surrendered, as a guide and the other as a rider from Shaki to Saye.

Ogbe Yono reveals the great perseverance that Orúnmila possesses.

It was ogbe suru, the nickname of ogbe yono on Earth, the one who revealed Orúnmila's inexhaustible patience. Orúnmila stated that although he seems weak and puny, when he decides to move he can be fast as lightning. When offended, it takes him three years to react, thereby allowing the offender enough time to repent and seek rapprochement.

Even when he decides to take the offense, his reaction is as slow as the movement of the snail. Although endowed with 100 pairs of feet, it moves slowly. And Orúnmila continues saying; “When I move and my movement is obstructed by a killer whale on the road, I roll about a hundred feet and wait for the foliage of the trees to mature and fall to the ground, to form a bridge that facilitates my movement over the rock. On the other hand, if my movement is obstructed by a fallen tree, I wait for the tree to spoil before continuing my movement.

It has to be truly a horrible anger that can survive the time it takes for a fallen tree to corrode and decay, or for falling foliage to pile up on rock.

This is how Orúnmila teaches and instructs all his children and supporters to develop a disposition towards inexhaustible patience when someone offends them. Orúnmila's opinion is as follows; Medicines and spells may fail as a remedy, but the efficacy of patience never fails.
