While discussing my burning question with RO, not only did I realize how to clarify my question, but also that Erzulie Freda might be trying to make herself known to me.
Pros: She's in line with this whole radical self acceptance thing, she likes the same things I do, gets along with Yemaya, never fully clicked with Aphrodite.
Cons: High maintance, don't know where to put her if I do start working with her, don't want to become a crazy god lady.
The idea of keeping her altar clean all the time is daunting. I suspect if I started working with her, she would live on my vanity which is notoriously a disaster area. The whole difficult and demanding thing is also pause making but at the same time, let's be real, I've been described the exact same way by people who actively love me let alone people who don't. The Yoruba pantheon is not at all unfamiliar to me, and it has lots of fun layperson rites. But I've never worked with a deity described as "demanding" and I'm not sure how well I'd play the "Whatever Erzulie Wants" game. But! I'm good at drawing boundaries with the gods and am somewhat of a cement head which I've learned is long termedly to my advantage. But as a cementhead, the fact that I'm getting the memo at all is giving me pause about how to proceed.
