Description of Goddess of the Rivers and Love – Ochun

Ochun is the goddess of love, of money and indeed of happiness. She brings to us all the good things of life. She is the goddess of sweet water and can be found where there is fresh water, at rivers, ponds and especially waterfalls. Many offerings are sometimes left for her at the waterfalls. Many ceremonies are done at the river bank.

Ochun is associated with Our Lady of the Caridad del Cobre. Cobre means copper in spanish, and the first money slaves saw in Cuba when they arrived was made of copper. So they identified Ochun with Our Lady of the Caridad del Cobre.
