He’s the guardian of the Crossroads of Life. Whenever there are decisions to be made, he provides opportunities and second chances. If you’re lucky. As a Trickster God, the childlike ELEGUA can sometimes make things even more complicated. At a whim he can turn a simple choice into a vast conundrum of paradox.
He’s also messenger to the higher Gods, particularly OLORUN, and he does like to be noticed. He’s partial to cigars and rum, but he is very good with children. His day is Monday — so you can start the week well under his ministrations. His color coding is red and black.
