Thanks for the info. I'm wondering is there a specific symble in Ifa. Or to be more exact, I am interested in Candomblé. I will use this symbology in my second novel as a sequel to The Crossroads of Time. One of the major characters in this book is a Candomblé priestess. Don't worry, I will not disclose any esoteric information in this book
Oh Wow!Sister River,
I wish you great success on your second novel. I will need to get the first when I have time. The title is very intriguing. What I would say, and take what I say with a grain of salt since I am neither an authority nor an initiated Ifa-Orisa priest, is as I understand it the symbol (I) represents contraction and the symbol of (II) represents expansion.
Thus I see it working like this: I = Contraction
II = Expansion
Here is an image of the main 16 Ifa Odu:
