You could expand Chango and the Double Headed Ax into representing the capricious and creative nature of Life. Chango colors, red and white, can represent the hotness of fire and the coolness of water. There is an element of crisis in Chango, to me combined with the idea of keeping a cool head to prevail through it. Chango's mythology is fraught with trail and tribulations from which he emerged triumphant and gained in wisdom and power. He is a very masculine energy and can border on the arrogant sometimes. He does not like people seated in his prescence. He loves to dance and is very loving and quite beloved. Shango is very noble and his children(as well as Yemaya's) enjoy the title oni to reflect that.

When obligations and responsibilites seem to piling up all around you that you don't know where to turn, then the strength of Chango is needed.
