In other words, it is related to spiritual devotion and rituals, which can be practiced within a religion or not. In addition, Ogum, the orixá of war and fire, is connected to number 7, due to his conquest of the seven villages of Irê.

The year will also have the influence of two other orishas: Olokun and Oxóssi. Little known in Brazil, Olokun is the orisha of the oceans, the Lord of the Seas. Also portrayed by the symbol of the moon, the ruling star of 2023, the orixá represents the mysteries of the depths of the sea.
At times the orixá is depicted as a woman and at other times as a man. In general, Olokun symbolizes union with all beings, as well as wealth and health. In addition to all this, Olokun invites us to look into the depths of our inner world, in order to let go of what no longer fits and walk lightly.
Oxóssi, orixá of knowledge and guardian of the forests, will bring protection, especially at work. Oxóssi is described as a hunter who carries a bow and arrow in his hands to provide sustenance to the tribe. In daily life, Oxóssi helps to achieve stability and build good partnerships.
How to connect to the energy of the Orishas?
A simple way to connect with the orishas is through prayer. This way you can intend what you want for your moment, but don’t forget to always give thanks.
Also, instead of praying for something specific, ask the spirituality and the orixás to bring to your path situations that promote evolution.
