Curiosity, serendipity, and questions.

Unread post by cojovi79 » Wed Jan 17, 2018 1:54 am

Hi, My name is Cole. I'm a 38 year old Taurus (may 8th) who lives in Chicago 8-) .
The subject of this post is the list of what brought me to this particular forum (this brings back memories from when I use to obsess over usenet etc.). Ive always been a spiritual person by nature (my parents weren't religious,- I remember finding a stack of miniature prayer books when I was five or so and thought all of it was as fascinating as the fairy tails my mom read me) and drawn to the "esoteric" (almost became a priest, or Pastor). Never had the discipline for any sort of "magic(k)al initiation, but I love reading, studying and dabbling. I think, and have good reason to believe, that I am clairvoyant:I have the occasional prophetic dream and read Tarot, I-ching, palms and am going to attempt to learn lanormande. I may not be able to tell you why I see the stuff I do in palms or cards- but they write stories in my mind and when I spit those stories out, people have been shocked- so...I'd say I'm pretty good at it.

Any way, my late night "research" has always lead me to Lucky Mojo for some reason or another, and I just never looked into the shop- or any of what this network of sites has to offer until recently. I'm hooked. I've Been reading Ms. Yronwode's and others books, posted articles and whatnot, and have come to the conclusion that my family is rich with unrecognized Hoodoo tradition. I'm mixed, and the black side is all from Mississippi, and Alabama (white from Montana, how that happened no one knows). On the maternal (black) side, all the women have jokingly been called witches. I'm not saying that I have some super Hoodoo blood, birthright or lineage. Through reading, I'm realizing how deeply embedded hoodoo is within the culture of black america, particularly the older southern folks.

So, now I"m here to soak up as much knowledge as I can, and potentially be able to call myself a root worker, or atleast hold an intelligent converasation on the topic in the future.

Now, I do have a question, and am not sure where I should post it. I would like to know if there is a book, books, site or sites that explores the homosexual influence within or the homosexual branch of hoodoo rootwork etc. Judging from what I know of history and the chitlin circuit and its utilization of root work, i'm hoping something of what I'm looking for exists.

Glad I have found all of this, and Nice to meet you!

Hello cojovi79,

We're happy to have you here! That is so wonderful that you feel a kinship with hoodoo and have been exploring your spirituality. I hope you find what you are searching for. Below I have posted our standard welcome message, which contains helpful links and pointers about the forum--I think you'll find it helpful.

As for homosexuality and hoodoo, you should check out a great book called "The Sporting Life" by Professor Charles Porterfield:




Welcome to the forum and to the Lucky Mojo family!

I am posting the most popular threads and some forum rules for you to look over.
And we are looking forward to seeing you on the forum.
If you ever have any questions, we are ALWAYS here for you.

These are links to general information on Hoodoo and to give you a jumping off point.

Hoodoo History:







Conditions and how we can address them:

Here is some info on how the forums are set up. It is divided into four parts:

1) News and Announcements about the Lucky Mojo Curio Company and this site.

2) Lucky Mojo Spiritual Supplies and how to use them, listed in threads by product type and product title.

3) Life Conditions and Situations, with recommended Lucky Mojo products, spells, and advice.

4) The Online Hoodoo Community, including sites, events, and outreach sponsored by Lucky Mojo.

When you post, it helps your moderators, who are recompensed volunteers, if you post in the area of the board that is best suited to the archival of your question or comment. That way moderators will not have to move your post or merge it into ongoing threads.

If you can't find a post you made, it may have been moved or merged. Go to your profile by clicking on your name and "search recent posts" -- you will find it.

Within each board section there are STICKY threads -- ones that always stay "stuck" to the top. These are popular discussion-threads that you can read and add to if your questions or comments fall into one of these oft-broached topics. If you don't see a "sticky" that relates to your question, feel free to start a new thread in the relevant section.

We do have a few "thou shalt not" rules here, and they can be found in the Forum Rules link at the top of each page. Most important for newbies are these four common errors to avoid:

1) Please do not come here asking for our formulas for conjure oils or for instructions on how to use spiritual supplies that you bought at a grocery store or at a competitor of ours; this is the Lucky Mojo Forum and is financially supported by the Lucky Mojo Curio Co.

2) Please do not spam the moderators by sending multiple duplicated private messages asking for personal help outside the board; many of our moderators do perform readings and rootwork spell-casting for clients, but they are professionals and you should approach them as you would any other professional.

3) Please do not post illegal copies of material from other web sites or from books.

4) Please do not post put-downs of any group of people based on their religion, race, or national origin, including derogatory comments

5) Please do not start new topics

6) Please do not quote people
Thank you saints and spirits!
