IFA OF THE YEAR 2012/2013 AS REVEALED IN OKE ITASE ON SATURDAY 2ND OF JUNE 2012.

ODU OF THE YEAR 2012
The Odu that was revealed during the annual world Ifa consultation at Oke Itase Ile Ife on the 2nd of June 2012 was Ogbe Ogunda (Ogbe Iyonu). Ifa foresees Ire of prosperity for all devotees.
There is the need for all those who are born by this Odu during Ikosedaye or Itenifa to feed their Ifa with two kola nuts, four bitter kolas, and a bottle of liquor, preferably schinapps or rum. Others who are not born by this Odu may also do so too if they so desire.
Messages of the Odu
1. Ifa advocates a lot of patience on the path of all devotees because they are presently going through serious financial crisis. This is a global phenomenon. Ifa however advocates the need to be resillent and to be steadfast in whatever we are doing because there is light at the end of the tunnel. Ifa warns against quiting the stage for whatever reason because all will be well at the end of the day.

Ifa advises each person, group, community, state or nation to offer ebo with two pigeons, two hens, two guinea-fowls, two roosters, two rats, two fish and money. On this, Ifa says:

Oni le n wo
Igbeyin mi kasai toro
Dia fun Makan-anjuola
Tii s’omo Elerin-in Sajeje
Eyi to nf’omi oju sungbere ire gbogbo
Ebo ni won ni ko waa se
O gb’ébo’, o ru’bo
Nje Makan-anjuola, omo Elerin-in Sajeje
Iwo si tun pada, o d’olowo
Aye e re tutu j’omi lo
N o ba o d’Erin-in Sajeje
Makan-anjuola, omo Elerin-in Sajeje

Makan-anjuola, omo Elerin-in Sajeje
Iwo si tun pada, o d’onire gbogbo
Aye e re tutu j’omi lo
N o ba o d’Erin-in Sajeje

Translation
You are looking at my present condition
The outcome of my life shall be very rewarding
Ifa’s message for Makan-anjuola (dont be in a hurry to attain honor)
The offspring of Elerin Sajeje
When he was weeping in lamentation of his inability to acquire all ire of life
He was advised to offer ebo
He complied
Now Makan-anjuola the offspring of Elerin-Sajeje
You ended up becoming a wealthy person
Your life is cooler than water
I will accompany you to Erin Sajeje land
Makan-anjuola the offspring of Elerin-Sajeje
You ended up acquiring a compatible spouse
Your life is cooler than water
I will accompany you to Erin Sajeje land
Makan-anjuola the offspring of Elerin-Sajeje
You ended up giving birth to many children
Your life is cooler than water
I will accompany you to Erin Sajeje land
Makan-anjuola the offspring of Elerin-Sajeje
You ended up acquiring all ire of life
Your life is cooler than water
I will accompany you to Erin Sajeje land

2. Ifa warns that those who show aggresiveness shall be put in check by Ifa. Ifa assures all devotees that this is the time that those who wield undue power on them shall not be able to achieve their nefarious aims anymore. People who cheat others shall lose recognition. Communities which cheat other communities shall lose out, Nations who show disrespect for the rights of other nations shall be put at the receiving end of all evils that they perpetrated.

Ifa advises individuals, communities, states or nation who are in the position of being victimised by others to offer ebo with one mature he-goat and money. On this, Ifa says:

Ibinu o da nnkan fun’ni
Suuru ni baba iwa
Agba to ni suuru
Oun gbogbo lo ni
Dia fun Ina
To l’oun o j’oye Olonroro
Ebo ni won ni ko waa se o
Ibinu o da nnkan fun’ni
Suuru ni baba iwa
Agba to ni suuru
Oun gbogbo lo ni
Dia fun Oorun
Ti yoo j’oye Olonroro
Ebo ni won ni ko waa se
Dia fun Osupa Kirimu
Ti yoo j’oye Olonroro
Ebo ni won ni ko waa se
Osupa nikan ni nbe l’eyin ti ns’ebo
A m’Osupa j’oye ire de
A m’Osupa j’oye Olonroro
A m’Osupa j’oye aye gun
A m’Osupa j’oye Olonroro
Lasan n’Ina gbo’ju
Ina o ni’wa ni’nu
A m’Osupa j’oye Olonroro
Lasan l’Oorun gbo’ju
Oorun o ni’wa ni’nu
A m’Osupa j’oye Olonroro
A m’Osupa j’oye ire de
A m’Osupa j’oye Olonroro
A m’Osupa j’oye aye gun
A m’Osupa j’oye Olonroro

Translation:

Anger amounts to nothing for one
Patience is the father of all good characters
An elder who is patient
He is blessed with all the good things of life
These were Ifa’s messages for Ina, the fire
Who wanted to be installed as Olonroro, the illuminator
He was advised to offer ebo
Anger amounts to nothing for one
Patience is the father of all good character
An elder who is patient
He is blessed with all the good things of life
These were Ifa’s messages to Oorun, the sun
Who wanted to be installed as Olonroro, the illuminator
He was advised to offer ebo
These were Ifa’s messages for Osupa Kirimu, the full moon
Who wanted to be installed as Olonroro, the illuminator
He was advised to offer ebo
Only Osupa complied with the advice of the Awo
We have installed Osupa and all Ire has arrived
We have installed Osupa as the Olonroro
We installed Osupa and the world has become peaceful
We have installed Osupa as the Olonroro
In vain was the competence of Ina
Ina has no good character
We have installed Osupa as the Olonroro
Of no purpose is the capacity of Oorun
Oorun is not endowed with good character
We have installed Osupa as the Olonroro
We have installed Osupa and all Ire has arrived
We have installed Osupa as the Olonroro
We installed Osupa and the world has become peaceful
We have installed Osupa as the Olonroro, the illuminator

3. Ifa also mentioned that most of the advanced nations of the world had become power drunk. They are advised to change these attitude of aggression and of thinking that might is always right. With their aggressiveness, they have destroyed many nations of the world. If they do not stop, the next 12 monthds will see them being plagued with disappointment, chaos and regret. The same thing applies to individuals, groups and communities who believe in creating discomfort and hardship for weaker groups.

Ifa advises that a comprehensive ebo comprising three he-goats, three guinea-fowls, three roosters, three hens, and money must be offered by those who are at the receiving ends of other peoples aggression. They also need to feed Ifa with one mature she-goat. On this, Ifa says:

Sakiti Awo Onisaki
Dia fun Onisaki
Omo Ogun o roke
Jagan n jangan, Jannganteele
Dia fun Ogbe
Ti yoo maa sowo ijakadi kari aye
O de’le Alara
O da Alara
O pa Alara
O de’le Ajero
O da Ajero
O pa Ajero
O de’le Owarangun Aga
O da Owarangun Aga
O pa Owarangun Aga
O wa ngb’ogun lo sile Elegun-Majo
Ebo ni won ni ko waa se
O gbebo, o rubo
Nje Eegun n jo o
Eegun n yo
Eyin o mo pe owo nini l’egun n lo

Translation
Sakiti, The Awo of Onisaki, the Oba of Saki Town
He cast Ifa for Onisaki
Offspring of Ogun devotees who cannot mold ivory
Jangannjangan and Jannganteele
Who would engage in the profession of wrestling the world over
He got to the palace of Alara, the Oba of Ilara moki
He threw down Alara
And killed Alara
He went to Ajero, the Oba of Ijero-Ekiti
He defeated Ajero
And killed Ajero
He went to the palace of Owarangun-Aga, the Oba of Ila-Orangun-Aga
He defeated Owarangun-Aga
And killed Owarangun-Aga
He was then going to wage war on Elegun-Majo, the Oba of Ajase
Elegutan-Majo was advised to offer ebo
He complied
Now, Elegun is dancing
And Eegun is expressing joy
Don’t you know that Eegun is spending newly acquired money

4. Ifa still goes further to state that those who usurp other peoples priviledges or belongings shall regret. Ifa says that Olodumare Himself and Ifa had placed a curse on individuals, groups or nations who forcefully take over other peoples things. Ifa also says that weak nations shall become prosperous at the expense of strong nations. In the same vain, weak individuals shall become more successful than their hitherto strong counterpart.

To ward off evil and to ensure that powerful individuals, groups or nations have no adverse influence on the weak ones. There is the need to offer ebo with food, maize and millet.

Translation
The bird with strong wide wings
The bird with powerful legs
The bird with a wagging tail
Orisanla Oseeremagbo
They were the ones that went to Agunregejege market
We searched and searched for a competent Awo
We could not find one
We searched for an Awo in Iliki land
And went to Ijesa land
And we even went to Iwonran
Where the good day dawns
My Mesiada costume which I normally used to celebrate the annual festivals in Ife Oodaye
They informed me that rats had taken it away
I responded that no rat had the capability of using my Mesiada costume
Those who set traps for rats
Will certainly be the slanderers against the rats
They informed me that the fish had taken it away
I responded that no fish had the capability of using my Mesiada costume
Those who set nets and hooks for fish
Will certainly be the slanderers against the fish
They informed me that the birds had taken it away
I responded that no bird had the capability of using my Mesiada costume
Those who set ropes, cages, and bird-lime to catch birds
Will certainly be the slanderers against the birds
They informed me that the beasts had taken it away
I responded that no beast had the capability of using my Ago Mesiada
Those who shoot with rifles and spears at beasts
Will certainly be the slanderers against the beasts
They informed me that my children had taken it away
I responded that my children are my future who will carry on when I am no more
I pray for my children to live very long on earth
And to grow old and feeble
I pray for my children to grow very old
And live very long
And succeed in all departments of life
And give birth to so many ideas and children
And multiply in all aspects of life
And spread the chain of prosperity to all parts of the world
The uninitiated are not wise
They also lack knowledge
The uninitiated do not know that our Odu is the Odu of riches and prosperity

5. Ifa says that there is the need for all devotees to take personal hygiene more seriously than ever before, especially those who have babies that they are nursing. Ifa warns that there are many dangerous particles now that will affect the children adversely if not properly disposed off. This is the reason why there is the need to sweep the ground as many times as possible and keep the home and its environment clean and tidy at all time. If this is not done, there is the likelihood that these infants losing their lives due to what they inhailed or consumed on the ground. Ifa advises that ebo should be offered with one matured he-goat and money. There is also the need to feed Egbe with Ekuru, Akara and fruits.

Eesuu nii senu tutuutu s’olorun
Bi eyi ti yoo p’ogun
Bee ni o lee pogun
Dia fun Tie
Tie nt’orun bo wa’le aye
Ebo ni won ni ko waa se
O ko’ti ogbonyin s’ebo
Iya omo da?
Omo ti ba tie lo o

Translation
Eesuu grass is it pointed its mouth to heaven
Just as if it intends to summon war and confrontation
But it cannot do so
Ifa’s message for Tie
When coming from heaven to earth
He was advised to offer ebo
He refused to comply
Mother, where is your baby
It had gone with Tie

6. Ifa advises all devotees to be their brothers/sisters keepers. They must ensure that they look after the welfare and of their brothers and sisters wherever they may be. Ifa says that doing this will make Ajagunmale, the Oluwo of heaven, to personally look after the home of such devotees. Ifa says that people will make jest of devotees, they will cast aspersions against them. They will also attempt to subject them to ridicule. Ifa says that they do not need to bother since their rewards are with Ajagunmale.

Ifa advises them to offer ebo with 16 pigeons, 16 hens, 16 rats, 16 fish and money. Pàrt of the items will be used to feed Ifa. On this, Ifa says:

Arugbo odo la fi ngeluu
Agbalagba ju ona nii gejo meji gberegede
Dia fun baba ti ntunle onile se
Eyi ti Ajagunmale yoo maa wole dee
Ebo ni won ko waa se
O gbebo, o rubo
Iya n bu mi lole
Baba nbu mi lole
Omo ti mo bi nbu mi lole
Aya ti mo ni nbu mi lole
Oro o kan yin o
Lowo Eledaa mi ni o
Ase wa dowo Ogbe oun Ogunda

Translation
An old piston is used to pound indigo
An old well trekked road is it that breaks the back of a snake
These were the messages of Ifa for the elder who mends other peoples home
And who Ajagunmale will be taking care of his own home
He was advised to offer ebo
He complied
My mother says that i am lazy
My father complains that i am lazy
My child accuses me of being lazy
Even my wife moans that i am lazy
The matter is not in your hands
It rest in the hands of my maker
My authority comes from Ogbe and Ogunda

7. Ifa says that there is the need to offer ebo in order to ward off both physical and spiritual enemies. Ifa says that the quality of all devotees’ lives will improve greatly if they can take care of physical and spiritual problems. There are crises upheveals and pandemonium the world over. Many physical measures to reduce crime rate around the world had failed. There is therefore the need to combine physical solutions with spiritual remedy. Ifa advises each devotee, group, or nation to offer ebo with one mature he-goat and money.

Translation:
What have I done?
What should I have done?
Asabi, my mother
You sent me to fetch fire
But I did not bring a container
I used my mouth to carry the embers to the house for you
It is with their mouths that Iganran people fetch and carry live embers in the farm
What have I done?
What should I have done?
Asabi, my mother
You sent me to bring yams
But I did not bring a basket
I used my mouth to carry the yams to the house for you
It is with their mouths that Iganran people carry yams in the farm
What have I done?
What should I have done?
Asabi, my mother
You sent me to fetch water
But I did not bring a calabash
I used my mouth to carry the water to the house for you
It is with their mouths that Iganran people fetch water in the farm
Gently Ifa
Offspring of the fine dust of Ido land
Easy Ifa
Offspring of the smooth dust of Iraye land
Gently Ifa
Offspring of the tightened rope which strengthens the Osidan musical drum
He who urinates like a rain shower
The brave man of Ido land
These were Ifa’s declarations to Orunmila
When going on a spiritual mission to the palace of Onidoo-Opaara
When they were completely overwhelmed by evil principalities
He was advised to offer ebo
He complied
Before long, not too far
Join us in the midst of all Ire of life
In the midst of all Ire of life does one find all followers of the holy palm
Now, Iku, Death accepted our pleas and left
Sawerepepe
Arun, Affliction accepted our pleas and left
Sawerepepe
Ejo, Contention accepted our pleas and left
Sawerepepe
Ofo, Loss accepted our pleas and left
Sawerepepe
All Ajogun accepted our pleas as they left
Sawerepepe

8. Ifa warns that there is the need for all devotees to be extremely careful and for them to take care of their lives especially the young ones. Ifa says that many disasterous things will happen in the year that will spare the old and snuff out lives out of young ones. This is the reason why youths should live their lives with extremely caution and avoid taking undue risks in order not to lose their lives. Ifa advises that there is the need to procure one hen and eight fresh eggs. Four of the fresh eggs should be boiled while the remaining four will be left raw. The hen will be sliced open from the chest to the abdomen and the eight eggs will be deposited inside the abdomen. Plenty of palm oil will be poured inside the abdomen and the hen will be used as Ipese for the elders of the night. This will prevent youths from dying in their prime and allow them to live to their old ages. On this, Ifa says:

‘Mode kekere nfe ‘binrin Ogboni
Won gbo, won o gbodo wi
Gedegede won o gbodo fo
Dia fun Iku
A bu fun Oosanla
Won ntorun bo wale aye
Ebo ni won ni ki won waa se
Won gb’egbo, won ru’bo
Kop e ko jinna
E waa wo’fa ojoun nni bo tin se

Translation
A youth is having a secret love affair with the wife of an Ogboni Elder
They’ve heard of it, but they must not say anything
Even the consequence of doing so must not be pronounced
This was Ifa’s message for Iku, Death
And also for Oosanla, Obatala
When coming from heaven to earth
They were advised to offer ebo
They complied
Before long, not too far
Come and see how the Ifa that was cast on that day has manifested

It is in this Odu that Ifa explains that it is not certain that anyone who comes into the world will live up to his/her old age before he/she returns to heaven. Death can snatch the son and leave the father, death can also snatch a whole family at one sweep and leave their parents untouched. This is why it is important to offer the ebo above in order to prevent untimely death for us and our loved ones.

9. Ifa says that there is the need for all devotees to adorn their necks, wrists, or waist with Ide beads. Ifa says that it will serve as a symbol of respect for those who use the beads. Untimely death will not be able to touch them. On this, Ifa says:

Owerere
Owerere
Dia fun Orunmila
Tii yoo lode b’omo re l’orun
Ntori Iku
Ebo ni won ni ko waa se
O gbebo, o ru’bo
Nje owere la n ja un
Iku kii pa’wo to lade b’orun
Owere la n ja un
Arun kii s’awo to la’de b’orun
Owere la n ja un
Ibi kii s’awo to la’de b’orun
Owere la n ja un

Translation
Owerere
Owerere
They cast Ifa for Orunmila
Who would adorn the necks of his children with ide beads
For protection against death
He was advised to offer ebo
He complied
We are all struggling, all of us
Death will never kill an Awo who has adorned his neck with Ifa beads
We are all struggling, all of us
Affliction will never affect an Awo who has adorned his neck with Ifa beads
We are all struggling, all of us
No evil will ever affect an Awo who has adorned his neck with Ide beads
We are all struggling, all of us

10. On the overall, Ifa says that our dreams shall come true. What many people consider to be impossible shall be realised. With patience, dedication and resillence all devotees shall have cause to celebrate. Ifa advises each individual to offer ebo with three pigoens, three guinea-fowls, three roosters and money. On this, Ifa says:

Teteregun abeso woroko
Dia fun Onilee fuja ti yoo dooto
Emi onilee fuja, o dooto
Mo kole owo
Emi onilee fuja, o dooto
Mo kole omo
Emi onilee fuja, o dooto
Mo kole aiku baale oro

Translation
Teteregun with croocked fruits
Ifa’s message for he who build his castle in his dreams
Which shall later come to pass
He was advised to offer ebo
He complied
I who build house in my dream
It has become reality
I build home of prosperity
I who build house in my dream
It has become reality
I build home of compatible spouse
I who build house in my dream
It has become reality
I build home of great children
I who build house in my dream
It has become reality
I build home of longevity the father of all prosperity.
