Asase Ya (or Asase Yaa, Asaase Afua) is the Earth goddess of fertility of the Ashanti people of Ghana. She is the wife of Nyame the Sky deity, who created the universe. She gave birth to the two children, Bia and Tano. Bea is also named Bia. She is also the mother of Anansi, the trickster, and divine stepmother of the sacred high chiefs. Asase Yaa is very powerful, though no temples are dedicated to her, instead she is worshipped in the fields. Her favoured people are workers in the fields and planet Jupiter is her symbol.
