Yemaya is the great mother who lives and rules over the seas. Water is essential to life, so without Yemaya, life on earth wouldn’t be possible. Although she’s maternal and nurturing, she’s also fierce. Her punishments can be terrible when she’s outraged, but she’s fair minded and forgiving when proper remorse is shown. Yemaya is clever and brave. When she goes to war on behalf of her children, she wields a machete with expertise and no one can defeat her. As a mother, she’s wise and virtuous, but she likes to have a good time and she enjoys dancing. When she dances, she begins slowly and gracefully but as she swirls and moves her skirts to reflect the rhythm of the waves, she builds up speed and intensity, showing her immense power.
This specialty strand represents the energy of Yemaya and all Ocean Goddess Energy. Made with Sea Green and Aqua Mystic Agate Beads, glass beads, shiny Gold beads, Turquoise beads, Pearls, crystals and a Mermaid charm. Please include your size in inches in the order form during checkout and any other notes you have.
I also Love the symbolism of the mermaid
Love * Beauty * Allure * Seduction * Sensuality * Femininity * Persuasion
Naturally, mermaid meaning and symbolism also deals with love as they are frequently associated with love goddesses like Aphrodite/Venus. They are also affiliated with sea goddesses like Amphitrites, Tethys, Calypso and the Norse sea goddess, Rán. Sexually tantalizing and devastatingly lovely, mermaids are perfect pinups for feminine (yin) power. This is quite nice, as mermaids also represent wild freedom, rebellious spirits and ferocious independence (they can never be contained and frequently avoid settling).
