Inkosazana

January 24th, 2008 by sabrina

Inkosazana is the Zulu Goddess of agriculture. She can manifest as a rainbow, a snake, a mermaid, a beautiful white woman, or as the rain. She is called upon in the spring to bring fertility to the land, and also by virgins to help them find a suitable husband. Inkosazana is also called Queen of the Heavens, Princess of the Heavens, and Inkosazana-y-Zulu.
