Los 21 Caminos de Lucero: The deity of the roads in Palo Mayombe

Paths of Lucero Palo Mayombe

Lucero is a deity in Palo Mayombe personifying destiny, life and death, he is the sacred gatekeeper who guards the path and provides guidance and balance.

His colors are red and black, or black and white, and he is the childlike messenger between the two worlds, the deity who opens and closes the doors to misery or happiness.

  • In the Yoruba religion it is related to the owner of the roads and crossroads, the orisha Eshu Elegua. Although it is necessary to emphasize that they are different deities.

Lucero has 21 paths, which represent the 21 types of foundations that can be received depending on the path of the initiate, his sign and his head deity.

Each initiate receives one of the 21 Stars

For example:

If the guardian angel of the ngueyo (initiated in the palo mayombe) is Centella Ndodi, he must receive Lucero Vira Mundo.

When it speaks of Lucero Mundo or Lucero Monte, it refers to the names given to the ngangas of Lucero when baptizing the cauldrons.

These cauldrons are prepared according to ancestral rituals with different sacred plants and prayers and offerings are made to invoke the spirits.
