IFA divination will be performed every Itadogun (every 17 days) and information will be posted detailing what offerings should be made following each Itadogun.

On this Itadogun, IFA warns us against loss (ayewo ofo). IFA says we should value wisdom more than any money. IFA says that we should be striving to attain more wisdom and not striving to attain more wealth. IFA says that we should all be making an offering with 13 units of money given to a charitable organization or cause of our choosing.
On this IFA says:
Heavy words carry the weight of an anvil
The Awo who cast Ifa for the world
When people of the world were giving too much praise to money
There was nothing the people of the world respected more than money
Orunmila told them:
What you think of money is so
And what you think of money is also not so
It is the teachings of Ifa that we should respect
It is that which we should regard highly
Money can raise one’s status, but it also can corrupt one’s character
A person who loves money excessively
Will ruin their character
Good character is the finest beauty of a human being
Even with money, one may go blind
Even with money, one may become lame
Even with money, one may fall ill
Even with money, one may become paralyzed
Therefore, one should strive to attain more wisdom
So that one can think deeply over matters
One should cultivate good character
One should acquire deeper wisdom
So that one may be at ease, inside and out
May Olodumare guide and guard us. Ase
