The Yoruba Day Of The Week Dedicated To Money And Profit

The traditional Yoruba week has four  days  dedicated to the Orisa in the following order:

  • Day 1 is dedicated to Obatala
  • Day 2 is dedicated to Orunmila
  • Day 3 is dedicated to Ogun
  • Day 4 is dedicated to Sango

However, to be streamlined with the Gregorian calendar, Yoruba people also have a 7 day week which is for trade and business matters

The seven  Yoruba business days  of the week are:

  • Ojo-Aiku (Sunday),
  • Ojo-Aje (Monday),
  • Ojo-Ishegun (Tuesday),
  • Ojo-Riru (Wednesday),
  • Ojo-Bo (Thursday),
  • Ojo-Eti (Friday)
  • Ojo-Abameta (Saturday).

Yoruba Beliefs About Monday

Ojo Aje (Monday): This is the day on which money joined Orisa on earth and is known as the day of money. Yoruba people use this day to start business, and to discuss economic and financial programs.
