Oshunmare directs the act, the transformation, and the power that moves. He is exhibited as a male and an orisha female and lives a dual nature. For six months, he is male; during that time, his symbol is the rainbow.
At this stage, his task is to take the water from the waterfall to the sky (the empire of Obatala). In the other six months, he adopts a female form. During this phase, represented by the serpent, it sometimes becomes a beautiful goddess called Bessém.
The two symbols of snake and rainbow represent renewal. With this duality, Oshunmare carries all contradictions, all opposites within her: Day and night, sweet and sour, good and bad, male and female. Like a snake, it bites its tail and thus forms a circle. This circle symbolizes the planet Earth and the movement of all the celestial bodies in the universe.
The orisha Oshunmare has its perfect domain is everywhere accounts are being paid, in purchases, in business, in the bank, in loans, in the help of finances.
Include in your prayer to Oshunmare the words: feelings, love, fortune, money, paths.
Oshunmare day is Tuesday, the date in the year is August 24.
To make your requests together with your prayers with candles or clothes in the colors of the divine father Oshunmare, they must be iridescent, lilac, and sky-blue. His stone is the opal, and his symbol is the snake.

How to ask Oshunmare for a favor
The main “accessory” associated with Oshunmare is the rainbow snake. When he created the world, he gathered matter and wrapped himself around the earth, rivers and valleys were formed as a result of sliding through it.
This orisha lives under the ocean and carries “the water from the seas to the sky, so that the rain may form – he is the rainbow. Therefore, Oshunmare’s natural space is water, and this essential water cycle is part of the reason. It is the orisha of movement, and the image of a snake biting its tail not only illustrates the cycle but also how the universe is interconnected.
Orisha Oshunmare is historically remembered as an African myth from Zaire or Senegal with the rainbow symbolizing “the fertility of the earth, the secret of the hermit and the infinite (biting its tail).”
Besides, a rainbow in Candomblé serves to transport the water from the earth to the clouds that shelter Shango. The duality of the gender of the orisha is shown with the colors of the rainbow, red being the male and blue the female.
