Itadogun 10/23/2014

On this Itadogun, IFA warns us against untimely death. IFA says that we must not travel by boat, canoe, etc and that we must not be swimming in any pools, lakes, rivers, or the sea during this Itadogun period. In fact IFA says we should even be careful of baths, especially for children  Following these taboos is crucial for our survival this Itadogun period. Furthermore, IFA says that we should make an offering with honey (oyin) to IFA for our protection.
On this IFA says:
It is one’s business that one takes proper care of
It is one’s trade that one looks after
If one is draining the lagoon
Water will splash into one’s face and mouth
Ifa’s message for Ondesun-tete
Offspring of the trap that causes the death of fish
He was advised to offer ebo
He refused to comply
Now the matter of Ondesun is not the matter to be discussed in the house
He had gone to the stream in Idesun land

May our offerings be accepted in OLODUMARE. May OLODUMARE protect us. Ase O

Sincerely,
Apena Fagbemijo Amosun Fakayode

  1. What does someone like me do in the instance that the only way I can get to work is by a ferry? (I work on a private island and my commute to and from the Island is via ferry) Now I’m a little worried

    • Hello Meechi
      I would avoid it at all cost until 11/8/2014, that is the next Itadogun and at that time these taboos will not longer be relevant.
      For the next two weeks I would either take off of work and stay put or find another means of transport. In the worst case scenario and there was no other option seemingly available to me, I would seek to consult IFA for myself personally to find what I can do to ensure my safety and wellbeing.

  2. In the instance someone like me has to travel by ferry to get to and from work what should I do? (I literally have to commute via ferry to and from the Island to get to and from work)…. this has me a little worried now
