Ok that made it just way worse
Sorry.. Kali is one of my Patron goddesses. I am also an initiate of Oya in Santeria. They are technically each other's counter part in a different religion.
In voodoo she's maman Brigette.In Mexico specifically she's Santa Muerta. In celtic lore she is the Morrigan.
In egyptian lore she's Sekmet.
They have varying traits in each religion
Kali and Oya both specifically watch over the dead and the underworld, and are goddesses of war death and destruction and justice.
They are not evil, but mete out divine justice and even death if it's karmically warranted.
They are both protective of their initiates and ward's. They both grant money when petitioned. Oya is the goddess of business.
Kali,, you don't mess with her, and... Happy couples is so not her domain.
She is called the destroyer of men. She wears a necklace of skulls and holds a decapitated man's head in one hand, her spear in the other.
In some places she has numerous hands with numerous weapons in each.
