Term: Agwe

DEFINITION:

The Voodoo Loa of the ocean, he protects all sea life as well as ships and boats. He is invoked using titles such as “Tadpole of the Pond” or “Shell of the Sea,” and is a protector of sailors and seafarers. His symbols include brightly colored oars and shells, and even small metallic fish. Specific rituals to him are typically performed near seas, rivers, or lakes, and you should have wet sponges and towels prepared for him for when he leaves the water. It is challenging for him to deal with the heat. In other rituals, he is called with the use of a conch trumpet.

Agwe is typically described as being a light-skinned mulatto with green eyes. He is one of the many lovers of Erzulie.
