Weekly Ifascope

The process of divination is to open the channels of communication between the meta-intellect of the Universe and ourselves. The skilled Diviner will utilize his or her experiential connection to this energy to tap into that ocean of knowledge for those that they are divining for. To be most effective, the energy should be a three way triangulation...Ifa priest, Client and Orunmila (meta-intellect). The Ifascope that the Foundation has presented each week for more than a decade, is a broader scope connection. The Ifascope is designed for a general understanding of the effective energy necessary for those that share our World View to most successfully navigate the path towards their fulfilling their Destiny. It is both accurate and effective - it will smooth the bumps and improve your life, but it is not meant to replace one on one divination. When serious issues of a career, love, health, children etc. must be dealt with, ONLY a one on one divination with a skilled Diviner can guarantee the right answers and solutions. At the Ifa Foundation, Oluwo Philip Neimark and Iyanifa Vassa are available for personal divinations via phone, e-mail, or in person at our various workshops.

Each week I divine for the most probable path that will lead us towards our Destiny. These paths reflect certain energies that are indicated for us to successfully traverse the two sides of our energy matrix. While each energy applies specifically to either the temporal or spiritual/emotional components, do NOT make the mistake of thinking they are not interrelated.  Ifa, unlike the Western world view, never examines any situation without understanding and integration with the whole of our lives.

 This week's Ifascope Reading is brought to you by our long time friend Javier Lujan {Ifajuitan}, an Osun priest and babalawo since 1998.

Notice: The weekly Ifascope is usually posted weekly between Thursday and Friday evening.

Reading for week of July 22nd - 28th, 2017

After experiencing some upheaval these past two weeks, we finally reach the end of that cycle “Seeing the light at the end of tunnel”. This week brings a more tranquil time to rest, find joy and contentment as well as strengthening our health and well-being. 

This week’s Odu is “Obara Owani” and comes “On Path” (“Idi Ogbe”). Obara on the temporal side is a strong masculine sign, meaning that we’ll benefit from being pro-active and assertive in any undertakings, our thinking is correct and emotions are balanced as indicated by “Owani”.  The reading also indicates a strong boost to our health (“Otura Meji”).

Use this time to further your goals and your destiny.  Make healthy choices in your life as it will greatly benefit you now, let your Ori (“Irete Meji”) be your guide, offer your Ori “Coconut Oil” (“Iwori Otura”). Pour the coconut oil on the crown of your head while visualizing a clearing away of the old and obsolete energy in your life to make room for a renewal and fresh start.

Light a white tea candle and place a clear glass of water, say a prayer and rub some coconut oil on your Ori.


Blessings to you all!

Reminder: The Ifa Foundation Online Community on Ifa.Prime conducts an in-depth discussion each week about the Ifascope reading and the Odus for the week. Join the conversation, click for more information.


Until next week…  

Love and Blessings!  Javier Lujan {Babalawo Ifajuitan}

The world is forever changing, if we don’t change with it, we’ll get left behind.  Nothing sinister about that, it’s just the reality. The challenge of learning to adapt has always been with us since the dawn of time. Adaptation goes beyond survival, it allows us to thrive, so don’t resist change, embrace it. This week you’ll find yourself dealing with unexpected changes which will make you feel uneasy and unsure of yourself. Itreally should be an auspicious time but we don’t see it that way because we’re too worry about what’s happening around us.
