Yemaya (Yemoja, Iamanja) is the orisha (goddess) of the ocean in Afro-Caribbean religions such as Santeria, and in many modern Pagan faiths. She is depicted as a mermaid in the ocean, or a woman in her 30s on land, where she wears flowing white clothes and blue beads. She is of mixed race, and is the particular guardian of mothers and children, and of those recovering from gender violence.
O Yemaya, Ocean Mother, bless me with wisdom and my child with safety.
