Agoussou

Agoussou

Agasou, the lwa originally from Dahomey, arrived in New Orleans via Haiti. During his journey, pronunciation (and spelling) of his name evolved while much of his leopard symbolism and royal connections were lost. What remained intact were his dignity, power, and virility. Miché Agoussou is invoked for love. As Vert Agoussou (Green Agoussou), he is syncretized to Saint Anthony, breadwinner and romantic saint. He may also be invoked to empower men’s sexual charisma and potency.

Also known as:

Miché Agoussou (Monsieur Agoussou)

13 June, the feast of Saint Anthony
