Erzulie Freda: Goddess of Love and Desire

FredaFreda is the sister of Ezili Dantor, and her opposite in every way.  Where Dantor is a hard working single mother, Freda is a glamor girl.  The mistress of three powerful spirits - Ogoun, Agwe and Danbala - she  is said to be the most powerful sorceress in the pantheon. So pure and  so good is Freda, that nothing malefic may happen in Her presence. She  is purity - her horses must be clean, dressed immaculately and scented  with her favorite Pompie lotion, before she will manifest in service.freda_saint

Syncretized with Our Lady of Calvary, Freda is seen to  have the wealth of the world at her finger tips and yet, she weeps  uncontrollably in service. There is never enough champagne (pink) or  cakes (white with white frosting) or candies or clothing or jewelry to  satisfy her. Her desires must be met or she turns in upon herself and  becomes Je Rouge (Red Eyed), the most fearsome of the Ezili group.

Sister to Dantor, LaSiren and Clermizine, Freda is the  most audacious, both in dress and behavior. She will typically greet the women with just her pinkies, but will lavish hugs and kisses to the men present. She loves the colors pink and pale blue, Pompiea lotion, pink  champagne and roses, frosted cakes, jewelry, makeup and gifts. Keep her  things clean or she will not arrive in the temple.
