(considered the mother of all)

Yemaya Known as the source of all the waters, including the rivers of western Africa. She is motherly and strongly protective, and cares deeply for all Her children, comforting them and cleansing them of sorrow. She is said to be able to cure infertility in women, and cowrie shells represent Her wealth. She does not easily lose Her temper, but when angered She can be quite destructive and violent, as the sea in a storm.
Yemaya is called the “Mother of All,” as such she rules the maternal aspects in human lives. She likewise is mistress over the oceans and the source of all waters . She is also known as “Yeye Omo Eja” which means “Mother Whose Children Are Like Fish.” Her many children are as uncountable as the fish in the seven seas. It is said she gave birth to the stars, the moon, the sun, and many orishas. The ache of Yemaya is often described as nurturing, protective, and fruitful.
