Hello all!

Hi y'all!

In the learning phase - I have previously considered myself Wiccan, but never felt 100% connected to it. When I started looking into Hoodoo it felt more like home. I am interested in learning more about the spiritual side and connecting with my ancestors, and have been drawn to bone throwing and have started collecting for my kit.

Thank you for this great resource for all us newbies!

Hello, Heather and thyme,

Welcome to the Forum, and i hope you enjoy your time here.

I do want to mention that comparing Wicca to hoodoo is like comparing apples and oranges.

Wicca is a religion with a pantheon of deities. Hoodoo is African American folk magic, which is not a religion, but is 90%-plus practiced by Christians, who have their own deity.

Christianity is a religion that is deeply entwined with hoodoo. It's like:

"You can take hoodoo out of the Baptists, but ... you can't take the Baptists out of hoodoo!"
