Exú is a powerful spirit who functions as Divine Messenger and Gatekeeper to the Spirit World. He sits at the Crossroads offering choices and possibilities to humankind. Exú represents balance: day and night, old age and youth, black and white, construction and destruction. He encompasses male sexuality, strength and fertility, and is privy to the mysteries of life and death. Exú is the lord of chaos and trickery, and the keeper of the life force. Nothing can be accomplished in the human world or the spirit world without the permission of Exú. He is the one that has the power to break tradition, to question the rules, to breach the norm, and to promote change. Exú, Divine Trickster and Master Magician was written for the uninitiated and is meant to assist the reader in understanding the complex deity and related family of deities known as Exú, no more and no less.
