OTURUPON IROSUN

Ifa enjoins all individuals or groups born by this Odu either during ikosedaye or itenifa to offer ebo with
two hens, and money. They also need to feed Ifa with one mature she goat and invite many people to
celebrate with them.
1. Ifa says that this annual ceremony shall bring progress, success, achievement and overall
wellbeing for all Ifa/Orisa devotees this year. There will be the need for us to celebrate our success
and achievements more than what we achieved in the previous years. Ifa advises each temple,
community, group or individual to offer ebo with four pigeons, four guinea-fowls and money. They also
need to have Ibeji icon and celebrate its ceremony in a comprehensive way this year.
On this, Ifa says:

2. Ifa says that we shall be blessed with ire at home and from outside the localities where we reside.
Ifa assures us that we shall become highly respected and respectable people within and outside our
localities. Ifa advises us to offer ebo with two pigeons, two ducks, two guinea-fowls and money. We
also need to feed our individual Ori as recommended by Ifa.

3. Ifa says that this Odu is also very good for mate selection. Ifa says that marriages shall succeed
and be very fruitful this year. Those who marry this year shall enjoy compatibility with their spouses
this year. Ifa advises those intending to get married this year to offer ebo with four rats, four fish, two
hens and one mature she goat each. Two rats, two fish, one hen shall be used to feed Ifa.
On this, Ifa says:
Ajagajigi iroko nii fewon gbadi

4. Ifa says that it foresees the ire of prosperity for Ifa/Orisa devotees this year. They will be wealthier
than ever before. Ifa advises all devotees to be more prayerful and more dedicated to their respective
professional callings and all shall be well this year. Ifa advises each of us to offer ebo with two
pigeons, two guinea-fowls and money. Each of us also need to feed Ifa with four rats and four fish.
There is also the need to feed Aje with one white pigeon, ekuru and honey.
On this, Ifa says:
Ajantiele awo ile Orunmila
Dia fun Orunmila

Ebo ni won ni ko waa se

5. Ifa advises all Ifa/Orisa groups to offer ebo in order for the groups to continue to increase in
number. Ifa says that the number of devotees is too small when compared to other spiritual groups. Ifa
says that we need to make conscious efforts to increase the number of Ifa/Orisa devotees this year
and at the same time, ensure that quality of spirituality is not compromised. The ebo materials here
are two mature rams and money. One of the two rams will be used to feed the ancestors. They also
need to feed Ibeji as prescribed by Ifa.

They were advised to offer ebo
They complied

6. Ifa advises all Ifa groups or communities the world over to offer ebo against multiple deaths in quick
succession. Ifa warns that there is going to be a higher rate of natural disaster this year as compared
to that of the previous year. There is the need for all Ifa and Orisa devotees to take more active part in
finding solutions to the problems plaguing their respective communities. It is obvious that the present
solutions being found to societal problems have failed woefully. There is therefore the need for all Ifa
and Orisa devotees to bring original solutions which only Ifa can provide to save the societies where
they live. The ebo materials here are two mature rams, two mature he-goats and money. One of the
he-goats will be used to feed Ogun while one the two rams will be used to feed Oro. Part of the
second he-goat that was used to offer ebo will be used as Ipese for Obaluaye. This is in order to
prevent malevolent spirits from entering their midst.

Ifas message for the inhabitants of Isokun
When they were dying in their prime
And they were dying in their youth
They were advised to offer ebo
They complied
Death please move away from this land
Affliction move away from the land
Contention, go out from this land
Loss, get out of this land
7. Ifa says that one of the causes of multiple deaths this coming year is most likely going to be
flooding and large bodies of water overflowing their banks. This is the reason why those living close to
where there is large expanse of water, especially oceans and lagoon will feel the impact of the threat
more than any other groups. It is therefore in their best interest to reconsider their location and make

adequate plans for such contigencies this oncoming year. Ifa advises us to offer ebo with two he goats
and money. One of the he goats will be used to feed Esu Odara.
On this, Ifa says:
Osupa lo ti inu okun la wa
Dia fun Adegbola
Omo aderin eti okun
Ebo ogbo, ebo ato ni won ni ko waa se
O koti ogbonyin sebo
Igba aisebo, igba aisetutu

And he was washed away by the water
8. Ifa advises each peson or group to ensure that one project is successfully completed first before
embarking on another. This is in order to avoid failure and unconsummated fortune. Ebo materials;
three pigeons, three roosters and money.

assures them that if well handled, they will become the favorites of many people for the rest of their
their lives. Ebo materials here are two pigeons, two guinea-fowls, two ducks and money.

10. Ifa warns all devotees to be very careful in the way that they tell their stories. Even though
everything that they are saying will be the truth, unfortunately this truth will very offensive to many
people, because it will bring them ridicule and makes them very uncomfortable. This may lead the
speakers of the truth to find it difficult if not totally impossible to achieve their ambitions in life. It may
also lead to a situation where they will be segregated and discriminated upon in the community. Ebo
materials; two roosters, two hens and money.
