It's almost Halloween...and Fet Ghede! Fet Ghede is the New Year for Vodouisants. It is technically on November 2nd. Fet Ghede is a time to honor our Ancestors, the Dead, the Ghede family, and of course, Baron Samedi and Gran Maman Brigitte. Baron Samedi and Maman Brigitte are the Master and Mistress of Life and Death, creation and destruction. It is said that they are, respectively, the first man and woman to have died; to be buried in the cemetery. The oldest graves for a male and female you can find in a cemetery are said to signify the Baron and Maman Brigitte.
Baron Samedi is often depicted as a very theatrical, gregarious black man dressed in formal funeral garb, a top hat, a cane, and mirrored sunglasses with a lens (his right, your left) missing. This is to signify that he has one eye in the world of the living and one in the world of the dead. Both Baron Samedi and Maman Brigitte possess all the knowledge of the living and the dead.
Maman Brigitte is depicted as a white woman, often of Irish descent. She is considered a great healer, among her many other powers. She renowned as an excellent "judge" as well.
While both these lwa represent life and death, the Baron has historically been portrayed as being more connected with death, whereas Maman Brigitte has been depicted as more connected with healing- a yin and yang of life and death, dissipation and rebirth. The two of them are still both rulers of Life and Death.
They can remove/bury past trauma, bring new life to a situation or relationship, enhance creativity or success in an endeavor, and many more possibilities!
The Baron's Purple Bath Kit is a customizable Voodoo bath that can be used for a wide variety of purposes- including connecting with Baron Samedi, Maman, Brigitte, Ancestors, and Ghede. It can help remove past trauma or renew life- starting over on a project/goal. These are just a couple of possibilities- it can be customized to your situation!
The Courthouse Power Spell Kit also calls on the Baron. It is a powerful spell for those in need of help in a legal situation.
The Ultimate Revenge Kit is the most powerful magickal revenge spell available and calls on the Baron. It can be used to give equal pain on someone who wronged you or a loved one and is deserving of your revenge.
Spellmaker's Sex Magick candles call on both Baron Samedi and Maman Brigitte. They can be used to attract a man or woman for sex- or to prevent sex/send away an intruder or stop cheating.
As, you can see- these two are POWERFUL lwa! We will be honoring them in a free online Voodoo prayer ritual on Sunday, 10/22. We hope to see you there!
