The African Goddess of the Moon, Cosmos, and Creation;; Mawu"Mawu is the Creator/Moon Goddess known among the people from the Dahomey region of West Africa. After creating the earth and all life and everything else on it,she became concerned that it might be too heavy, so she asked the primeval serpent, Aido Hwedo, to curl up beneath the earth and hold it up in the sky. When she asked Awe, a monkey she had also created, to help out and make some more animals out of clay, he boasted to the other animals and challenged Mawu. Gbadu, the first woman Mawu had created, saw all the chaos on earth and told her children to go out among the people and remind them that only Mawu can give Sekpoli - the breath of life. Gbadu instructed her daughter, Minona, to go out among the people and teach them about the use of palm kernels as omens from Mawu. When Awe, the arrogant monkey climbed up to the heavens to try to show Mawu that he too could give life, he failed miserably. Mawu made him a bowl of porridge with the seed of death in it and reminded him that only she could give life and that she could also take it away."(Source: http://dickinsg.intrasun.tcnj.edu/diaspora/africangoddesses.html)"Mawu is the West African Moon Goddess; She rules both the Moon and the night sky. She is honored for the cool temperatures She brings to the African world. Coolness is an expression of wisdom and age. She is the essence of Motherhood and teaches Her people how to celebrate and revere their ancestors. She is the female principle that is associated with fertility and compassion. Cowrie necklasses are sacred to Her.
As a deity, She is seen as a creator, but She rarely has shrines and rituals dedicated to Her. It is said that She created the Universe as she rode about on the back of a great serpent who was so big, he could encircle the sky. Her twin and consort is the Sun God, Liza, the male principle. Their unity represents the order of the Universe. Liza dwells in the East and Mawu in the West…and each time there is an eclipse, they are believed to be making love…and each time they made love, this led to a new act of creation and has done so ever since.”(Source: http://reclaimingthedarkgoddess.blogspot.com/2010/05/mawu-and-liza.html)
