Hi,

About MOJO HAND and ROOT BAG and relates subjects!

I like to get much more better than I am at the moment making these things is there anyone out there that can suggest some good book on white, gray and black magick in this area?

I have the book "Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic: a materia magica of African-American conjure" and some other ones.

I would like to know much more on the subject and in a European sense also in witchcraft hope anyone can help me with some books and suppliers around the world and books on the hoodoo making also in the Europe traditions. And different empowerment and consecrations examples. I am looking at very good books in the subjects! Hope I get some good help here!

master03: I'm sorry but this forum is for the Lucky Mojo Curio Company customers to discuss products sold by LMCC. We cannot give you help with supplies and book publishers from around the world. There are many, many other sites that can help you with that journey!

I also do not think you will find anyone here that can help you with what you call "white, gray , and black magic" pertaining to Root Bags and Mojo Hands. That concept is pretty widely used in Wiccan Practices as well as more new age spell and herb work.

Not sure how many books are written on the subject of "hoodoo making in the European traditions." Hoodoo has a pretty exclusive history in the USA. I suggest you read here: (http://www.luckymojo.com/hoodoo.html) for more definition of what Hoodoo is!

Does anyone know if LM still carries any of the books by Starr Casas? I see that they were for sale here at one point (or at least one of them was), but I don't see any of her more recent titles and I was hoping to maybe pick those up as part of a larger LM order. Any help or guidance is appreciated!

Thanks!

Never mind! I figured it out :-) Just couldn't see them in the main books page, but then I saw they were in the complete list instead.

Book suggestion list: Do's and Don'ts

Unread postby ozmalicious » Tue Apr 30, 2013 5:13 am

I see a great selection in the books available, but I was wondering, after looking at the "reviews" on some titles that are supposed to be Hoodoo books, is there a list of recomendations of titles that are "must read"?

Also, are there books out there that any of you have found to be misleading, or just plain full of nonsense? If so which ones should we look out for?

And which ones do you carry that are must reads, and will you carry others that fall on that list in the future?

thanx :)

In regards to books you should look into there are a few threads that can help you out in the fields of your interest.

Talisman-wise, I recommend talking to a rootworker like Miss cat who is known for fixing authentic hand-crafted beautiful talismans. You can set up a magical coaching sessions with her via AIRR. You can also ask her to make you one to give you the protection you seem to be looking for. Here is a link to AIRR with the page of talismans. On the right you can find Miss cat's name.

munberry --

1) Voodoo is a religion. You would have to ask the members of that religion or its clergy the question -- just like asking a Catholic priest if there are books for kids about Catholicism or asking a Jewish rabbi if there are books for kids about Judaism.

2) Hoodoo is African American folk-magic. If the child is not Black, then i think that childrens' books on African American culture would be a good place to start. There is one children's book that describes hoodoo in an interersting way -- not sure i would recommend it to every child, but it has received some interesting reviews:

Clara and the Hoodoo Man by Elizabeth Partridge
Age Range: 9 and up
Hardcover: 176 pages
Publisher: Dutton Juvenile; 1st edition (July 1, 1996)
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0525454039
ISBN-13: 978-0525454038

From Publishers Weekly:

While digging herbs on Red Owl Mountain, Clara Raglan and her little sister Bessie strike up a conversation with Old Sugar, the hoodoo man. Their mother has warned them that Old Sugar puts hexes on people, but the girls timidly respond to the old man's friendship. Then Bessie is struck by mountain fever. Momma blames Clara. "You should never have talked with that two-shadow man," she cries, collapsing into sobs. And Clara, ashamed, has to take a big risk. Should she fear the hex or defy her mother and fetch the hoodoo man to save her sister's life? This exceptional first novel is as clear and sharp as a heady whiff of sage. It features luminescent writing full of sensuous images, heavy with persimmon and willow bark and hollyhocks; readers can hear the chickens scratching and feel the big pots steaming. It is subtle in characterization; Clara is aware of her mother's big and small moods, but from a young girl's perspective. It is also dramatically compelling, climaxing in Clara's fearful ride up the mountain in the pitch black. Partridge, an herbalist and acupuncturist, has based her novel on the story told her by the real-life Clara, an octogenarian African American woman raised in rural Tennessee. One hopes the author has more stories to share. Ages 8-11.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-6. Clara, an African American girl, is angry that she is always expected to entertain her younger sister. She wrangles with Bessie until she finds herself caught in a dare that results in one of their mother's crocks (used to store homemade sausages) getting broken. In the Tennessee mountains at the turn of the century, such a loss could threaten the family's very survival. Clara vows to earn the $2.50 to replace the item, but it seems an impossible sum until she finds a large patch of wild ginseng. Anxious to please her mother, who always seems to find fault with her, Clara ignores a coming storm and her sister's safety to dig the valuable "sang." After being soaked and chilled by the storm, Bessie contracts a life-threatening fever, against which even the white doctor seems powerless. Clara thinks the hoodoo man can save the sick child, but her mother has fearfully forbidden her to even speak to him. Superbly schooled in time and place, Partridge introduces readers to the demanding beauty of life as it was lived by people who were handed little, yet survived and gave much. Readers learn the uses of willow bark, the setting habits of a recalcitrant hen, and are given glimpses of the legacy of slavery. Although the plot moves a bit slowly at times, Clara is a beautifully realized character. -- Cindy Darling Codell, Clark Middle School, Winchester, KY

Suggestion: Lucky Mojo Spell Book

Unread postby Addi123 » Sun Oct 13, 2013 11:24 am

I had this idea before. I really like the spells directed in Lucky Mojo spell kits and feel a connection I don't feel in many of the spells commonly found in spell books.
I had this idea based on 1, the fact I would like to read more of the spell kit instructions without buying the full sets first. 2, Because I loved "Hoodoo Herb and Root Theory" and think a spell book would be a great companion. and 3, Because I think it would be a good medium to add more spells not found in kits.

Would like to hear what others think of this suggestion

I agree that the Black Folder is a wonderful resource, to read as well to use!

Have you considered taking the HR Correspondence Course? You will be glad you did. There is so much more in the course on top of what you learn here at the Forum, as well as at HITAP. I found it to be a fascinating look into the cultural foundations, history, spirituality and psychology of the work, as well as the practical teachings. It gives you the confidence of being able to create your own spells and combinations, not just from what is in books. All of these things taken together are quite a good education! I hope you will consider it! Do not be intimidated by the commitment required, the interview with Cat, etc. If you are serious about wanting to study and see it through, you will be successful. Good luck to you!

I Just Received My Books and Wow!!!

Unread postby Gemini6267 » Fri Mar 14, 2014 12:10 pm

Hello One and All;

I just received my first order of books from Lucky Mojo and all I can say is "OH MY STARS"!!! They were all exactly what I hoped they would be and more! I am soooooo happy! Usually when I order books, well.... they're good but sometimes they aren't exactly what the description said they'd be. But, my books from Lucky Mojo, were exactly what I would hope for and more. Especially, "The Black Folder". I expected it to be - well a black folder filled with pages of hole punched essays. Well no... it is actually a soft cover book collection of what the description said it would be, it is fantastic. The following is a list of what I ordered;

The Master Book of Candle Burning - Henri Gamache

I had originally ordered, The Art of Hoodoo Candle Magic by Catherine Yronwode, but it was out of stock, so I substituted with this book. Even though it wasn't exactly what I would have wanted, it is still a very useful book and I had intended to buy it at a later date anyway. This book gives plenty of background and philosophical information regarding the art of candle burning as well as a short description of candle burning signs to be aware of. The list of spells is especially useful.

Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic - Catherine Yronwode

This is one of the most well thought out herbals I've seen in a long while. It gives the spiritual uses of herbs, roots and minerals as well as a collection of zoological curio information. I particularly love the manner by which the spiritual uses of any given herbs are listed in clear and concise detailed descriptions. This is much more informative than the typical list of words listed after an herb i.e.;protective, clearing, love, etc. The descriptions give detailed useful listings such as "To Make Your Money Go Farther", and the method by which to use the herb in just that manner. If their are more uses for an herb (and in most cases there are), each use will be listed and in the same manner as described above.

Encyclopedia of Mystics, Saints & Sages - Judika Illes

This is exactly the book I've been looking for. It lists noted spiritual people in an encyclopedic manner with detailed life information as available as well as all the pertinent correspondences associated with them such as offerings, attributes, rituals etc.

The Black Folder - edited by Catherine Yronwode

"The Black Folder" well what can one say? It IS NOT a black folder compiled with three holed punched xerox copied pages. It is actually a large soft covered book made to look like a black folder. It contains so many things contributed by many of the well known Hoodoo specialists that we've come to know and love via; The Lucky Mojo Hoodoo and Rootwork Hour. Spells, prayers, cookery, divination and so much more!

Oh, well... I'm just going on and on and I'll leave things at that. I'm very happy with my books and I just wanted to let everyone know LOL!

Regards!

Thanks for the nice reviews, and i am glad you like our books and the books we distrbute. The second printing of The Art of Hoodoo Candle magic is BACK IN STOCK. Sorry you missed it on the first go-round, but the Gamache book is an essential piece of our history and now you have it. Anyway, you can order "The Art of Hoodoo Candle Magic" just fine now.

Thanks for that list, Leah.

Here are the books we are publishing in 2014 for debut at the Hoodoo Heritage Festival in May. These books are included in the price of the admission ticket and will be for sale to the public after the festival. These all qualify as good books for BEGINNERS. They are very clearly written, contain historical background material, and are jam-packed with hundreds of magical tricks and spells you can use in your practice of conjure or folk magic.

ORDERD 2 BOOKS BY MISS CAT AND ONE BY DEACON MILLET

Unread postby morningstar_67 » Fri Jul 04, 2014 12:29 pm

hi everybody its good to be here again. So today what i wanted to talk about is i orderd three books that I've had my eyes on for a LONG time: the Art Of Hoodoo Candle MAgic, The Black Folder and Hoodoo Honey and Sugar spells.

My question here is that my books will be arriving and I'm actually looking to do some protection work and blessing because i feel
I'm being really over whelmed by evil eye and slander, and even hidden intentions by a person in my inner circle, I'm really trying to get the power of the white light to protect me and make me invisible to fight against the darkness thats trying to keep me down.

BUT do i Absolutely have to buy the oils from LMCC to anoint my candles and herbs or can i just go ahead and buy them from my local occult shop here in Toronto?

My books will be here any day now and i really want to start this work. Already its nagging at me night and day. If i order online ill have to wait even longer.

any help is as always appreciated thank you so much. :)

Hello, morningstar_67 ,

We don't advise buying products from competitors.

Additionally, how could anyone even suggest purchasing an oil with unknown ingredients and then assure you that it would work?

We know for a fact that Lucky Mojo's oils have the ingredients needed to get the job done.

Enjoy your books! They are very well written and quite informative.

Take care

J-Mo, nice to see another shout-out for Hoodoo Bible Magic. It was such a blast to put together, and my co-author and editor, Professor Porterfield and Miss Cat, brought so much to the table.

A friend of mine showed his copy to a former Baptist pastor who grew up in suburban Atlanta, and who said it was just like the things he heard growing up. His college-educated family didn't do that stuff, but they all knew about it :)

And now we have FIVE MORE BOOKS about hoodoo at the printers and they will be ready for sale in mid-May.

Image

"Paper In My Shoe: Name Papers, Petition Papers, and Prayer Payers in the Hoodoo Tradition" by catherine yronwode. This is a beginner and intermediate level introduction to the use of papers in magic and particularly in hoodoo. It provides a world survey of how magical papers are used in many culture and then provides page after page of practical love, money, protection, court case, and other spells in which name paper, petition papers, or prayer papers play a part. Illustrated with page after page of examples of magical writings and inscribed spells from all eras.

"A Deck of Spells: Hoodoo Playing Card Magic in Rootwork and Conjure" by Professor Charles Porterfield. This book brings back to the fore an old art of using playing cards in magical spells, long found in European folk magic and in Black American hoodoo. Also provided are several methods for reading cards -- and a hundred spells with playing cards. Jam-packed, valuable, and an eye-opener, this book is destined to change the way newcomers work in hoodoo by capturing for them the essence of an old, traditional methodology. Illustrated with examples of the actual written-on playing cards used by Professor Porterfield in the book.

"Deliverance!: Hoodoo Spells of Uncrossing, Healing, and Protection" by Khi Armand. This book is for anyone who feels crossed, jinxed, cursed, or messed up due to contact with negative energies, parasitic entities, or attacks that were sent through magical means. It is filled with diagnostic methods to determine what exactly is going on and prescriptive advice in the form of practical spells-casting to free yourself. A dense, thought-provoking, and supremely useful book, presented by a master rootworker and spiritual helper. Illustrated with pictures of historical uncrossing supplies from old hoodoo catalogues.

"Hoodoo Return and Reconciliation Spells: True Love Magic in the Conjure Tradition" by Deacon Millett. In this follow-up to his previous hit book on honey and sugar spells, Deacon Millett addresses the most-asked topic in hoodoo: how do i get my lover back? Written in an accessible extremely practical style, this book presents great historical spells from hoodoo's past, plus new and exciting ways of working refined from the Deacon's experience as a love-restoration specialist. Illustrated with pictures of historical love supplies from old hoodoo catalogues.

"Hoodoo Shrines and Altars: Sacred Spaces in Conjure and Rootwork" by Miss Phoenix LeFae. Coming to hoodoo from a background in Paganism, Miss Phoenix examines what distinguishes hoodoo shrines and altars from those of other religious paths, then delves into the difference between a working altar and a shrine f veneration, and shows the reader how to make, build, and work with every kind of permanent or temporary altar for every conceivable purpose. This book covers everything from vanity-table altars to elaborate installations with statuary and candles, and includes matchbox shrines, mantelpiece altars, and portable altars. A great book for the beginning practitioner, it will answer all your questions, from "What is an altar?" and "Do i really need an altar?" to "How to i clean my altar?" and "How do i take down an altar i no longer wish to work with?" Illustrated with pictures of historical altar supplies from old hoodoo catalogues.

I read that getting a book on reading tea leaves would be helpful for learning to interpret shapes and such in wax.. so is there a particular book about tea leaves that would be good for that?

Hi Naexis,

If you scroll down this page to the section of books on divination, you will find several options for books on tea leaf reading:

It never ceases to amaze me the kinds of stories that spell remains can tell!

Good luck!

Hello,
I'm new to both Hoodoo and the Luck Mojo forum. Before making purchases for rootwork I wanted to educate myself first. I already ordered the "Master Book of Candle Burning Paperback" by Henry Gamache and I plan on purchasing "Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic: A Materia Magica of African-American Conjure" by Catherine Yronwode.

Now to my question I wanted to purchase one other candle burning book but I’m trying to decide between "The Magic Candle: Facts and Fundamentals of Ritual Candle-Burning" by Charmaine Dey or "The Art of Hoodoo Candle Magic in Rootwork, Conjure, and Spiritual Church Services" by Catherine Yronwode.

:?: Which of these two books best complements what I already ordered and what I plan on purchasing? :?:

Any advice on which of the two I should purchase or any other books that would help on my quest to learn more about Hoodoo would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for any and all help.

Hello, neophyte79 ,

Wow, that's a difficult question. They are BOTH excellent books. But, if I only had one choice (and I would think long and hard about that because they are both wonderful books), I would choose: "The Art of Hoodoo Candle Magic in Rootwork, Conjure, and Spiritual Church Services" by Catherine Yronwode.

You are already buying the: "Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic: A Materia Magica of African-American Conjure" by Catherine Yronwode.
That is a terrific place to start. Some of us lovingly call this book: "The Green Bible". It is the best.

I would start with these books first. Then, you might either want to buy more books ( www.luckymojo.com/mojocatbooks.html ) or, perhaps, take the Rootwork Course that Miss cat teaches. It is wonderful

Wishing you the very best

Take care

so I received your book yesterday Catherine, the mail man thought it hard to call me downstairs or ring the buzzer, so he ripped the package open and bend the book in half to fit it in the the box. Now do see why curses be fly left and right??, Im semi pissed off, I wish I saw who that mail person was. What made me buy your book was when I experimented with hot pepper sauce on a target, the results were very pleasing, so I started wondering what other concoctions I can come up with. Alot of the books on herbs online Ive read are not so good and just regurgitated nonsense, iVe heard good reviews on Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic, so im off to reading, let the fun begin..

Hi Lex009,

What a pity that your mailman was so unprofessional! I would report it to your post office, so they know that this happened.

You will absolutely LOVE Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic! I have my copy marked up everywhere, and I refer to it almost daily. There's a reason it's known as the Green Bible!

Good luck, and happy reading!

Between LMCCo, MISC, and YIPPIE, we have published SEVENTEEN SPELL BOOKS, TWO books on divination, and ONE book on the philosophy of a religion since 2002.

Some of the spell books are organized by type of work (herbs, baths, ensorcelled food, etc.) others are organized by condition (uncrossing, reconciliation, living outside the law, etc.) -- and some are wide-ranging compilations (The Black Folder, Hoodoo Herb and Root Magic, etc.).

The complete list is here:

http://luckymjo.com/publishing.html

From that page there is a link to each book, where you can read the table of contents of each one.

Good luck.

Communing with the Spirits by Martin Coleman is a fantastic book! Read that book through and then read through it again taking your time.

As for books on Ceremonial Magic, you may consider checking out:

THE CLAVIS OR KEY TO THE MAGIC OF SOLOMON
by Joseph Peterson

THE KEY OF SOLOMON THE KING (CLAVICULA SALOMONIS)
edited by S. L. MacGregor Mathers

THE LESSER KEY OF SOLOMON
by Joseph Peterson

And even

PRACTICE OF MAGIC
by Draja Mickaharic

Many of these titles can be found in the Occult Books and Pamphlets section.

Many blessings,
