Hello all!

Unread post by Heather and thyme » Wed Sep 19, 2018 4:46 pm

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!"

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 post illegal copies of material from other web sites or from books.

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

4) Please do not start new topics

5) Please do not quote people
