Bossou is the sacred bull of Vodou. Often shown with three horns that mean Strength, Wildness, and Violence, he is a very powerful, mighty and aggressive lwa of immense power, fertility, and sexuality. Bossou should not be approached lightly or with ego, as his fury is swift, savage, and devastating. Bossou will carry the weight and work hard when approached in the right manner.
Bossou is the Spirit of the great Bull, the spirit of change, the power to overcome. He is strong and constant. As a representation of the materialist forces, he helps to remove the spirits of the dead who have attached themselves to someone. Bossou is an amazing healer, and also an incredible protector able to defeat all his enemies. He is often seen as a fire-breathing bodyguard and exorcist.
Half human, half divine, Bossou is the guardian between the new world and home, and also guards the entrance to the underworld. He protects his followers when they travel at night or on a long trip, and and is called upon when wanting extra protection so that no harm will come.
Bossou is depicted as the Catholic Saint Jesus de la Buena Esperanza (Jesus of Good Hope).
