Card for Erzulie Red Eyes

Erzulie Red Eyes

With scarlet eyes that glow like burning embers, Erzulie Red Eyes is another aspect of the Voodoo goddess loas Erzulie Freda and Erzulie Dantor. However, she is not exactly the same. Erzulie Red Eyes is more extreme when it comes to destructive urges and righteous anger. She is passionate along the same lines of her Erzulie sisters, but she takes on a more caustic element, seeking both retribution and revenge when she feels that she or her loved ones have been wronged.  The passion of Erzulie Red Eyes sears and seethes.
As warrior and a protector, Erzulie is the patron of  women and children equally. She frequents children’s wards and areas where surgery is performed in hospitals. Like her sister Dantor, she is the fierce protector of all women but Erzulie Red Eyes believes gay women need her allegiance and protection the most, thus, she is the guardian of lesbians.
       She generally does not get involved in overt violence or destruction directly, but leaves her enemies to their own devices and will cease to support them. The lack of her support us what typically leads to the downfall, not the rage of Erzulie Red Eyes. Yet, she tends to be covert and shadowy. She walks between worlds like the other loas and at times witnesses can see her red eyes in a window or doorway when she makes a visit.
       Erzulie Red Eyes is not demonic nor is she a vampire but is attracted to blood. It is said her partner is Ogun, who represents the iron in the blood which implies their power and their strength. She can be violent when she chooses to be, and has a personality which easily slides into anger. Be cautious about the situation when this card appears. It often indicates, judgment is about to be enforced and something is going to fail or fall.
Story of Erzulie Red Eyes
Erzulie Red Eyes shadows and even parallels the two more familiar Erzulie’s but she is a spirit entirely to herself. While the other Erzulie’s also represent passion and protection this crimson-eyed loa goes a step beyond. She has been angered and she seeks retribution. No one entirely knows why, because Erzulie Red Eyes remains shrouded in nighttime shadows and dawn mountain mists. Her male counterpart is Ogun, a primoridal orisha who first appeared in Africa as a hunter, later becoming a warrior and a defender.
      Unlike Erzulie Freda, Red Eyes dislikes most sweets, preferring cayenne peppers, pulled pork and rum. However, the best cake offering for Erzulie Red Eyes is a red velvet cake but without any cream. In fragrances, she is drawn to the scent of patchouli and cinnamon. You would think this loa of anger and destruction would not care about housekeeping, but like Gaelic fairies, she prefers homes to be organized, clean and well-kept.
      Erzulie Red Eyes’s primary role is as a guardian to the weak, the persecuted, victims of evil and also to herself.  She is a part of the Petro pantheon. Petro are considered angry spirits and can be used in black magic.  These are spirits created to endure harshness and they are associated with slavery times. Erzulie Red Eyes will also visit vengeance on one who betrays a lover, whether heterosexual or homosexual. She does not distinguish between man, woman or child. Whenever her spirit is around, it is reported people’s eyes will itch. She aids the jealous and slighted in love and is never fleeting in her approach. She is patient and will exact her revenge at the most appropriate and fated time. Despite her bad reputation for being bent on revenge, Erzulie Freda loves wide open spaces and traveling over distances. She can be called upon as a protectress during trips.
