Laying Tricks in a Quincunx Pattern Questions and Answers

Unread post by CopperFox » Sat Oct 31, 2009 6:31 pm

Hello, all!

Regarding the use of a five spot or "portable crossroads" -- the gist as I recall was that ritual items could be interred beneath a created five spot to further fix the ongoing work or that the spell itself could be worked atop the five spot to add power to the spell. One of the pages described a painting which depicted a woman and man working a five spot spell in a room. I've searched for the pages to no avail and have started to wonder if I simply stayed up too late reading...but I hope not, 'cause it's a neat-o idea! If anyone can point me back toward these pages so I can re-read them and/or describe their own use of the five spot in spellwork I would be much obliged.

Thanks for your assistance, hoodoo pros! 8-)

You might be thinking of this section from the page, Laying Down Tricks and Disposing of Ritual Remains from ms.cat's online book. http://www.luckymojo.com/layingtricks.html#quincunx

Thanks for replying, HailDiscordia. I re-read the above referenced page but it does not contain the information I am looking for which is the use of a 5 spot for conducting a ritual upon as opposed to using one for dispoal. I will keep searching the archives -- if you do happen come across it and point me in the right direction -- vielen dank!

Laying Tricks in a Quincunx Pattern Questions and Answers

Unread post by Vypermojo » Sun Jan 19, 2014 12:13 pm

Hello !!

My typical use of this site so far has been to study African American folk magick and culture. However, a friend of mine is going through some unimaginable crap, and seeing it first hand has me saying enough is enough. I think he should pay for what he has done. In my opinion, anyone that can hit a child has it coming.

I'm looking to lay down a Quincunx over his front porch. I'm curious:

1. Do I have to lay all four sides and the "X" pattern or do I just lay down the four corners and the center spot ?

2. If I use chalk to outline it and it rains or snows, will this lessen or remove the effect ?

3. I have no way to hide this as they do not have a door mat, so I was thinking of using stones, or a mix of graveyard dirt, goofer dust and crossing powder, possibly adding some DUME powder.

I'm open to suggestions, or ideas.

Thanks for any help !!

Hello !!

Yes I have gone over that link several times. I even tried calling the shop. I was hoping for some more insight.
The questions I asked, did not appear to be on the page you linked over to me.

The shop suggested I post here, as whomever answered did not know about this
particular subject. Thanks for any extra insight! :)

Hi Vypermojo,

1. Usually in a geographical location just the four corners and center spot are laid out although you can do the full perimeter and x if you so desire. When working in an altar set-up, then often a circle or square with an x is made with herbs or sachet powders.

2. I'd repeat if the work gets washed away, or at semi-regular intervals regardles, until you get results.

3. You can lay out the trick with the powders (rather than chalk) if so desired. These can be mixed in with the native dirt around their front area in order to hide the work.

Would snow count as a form of hiding it? If I lay it while it is snowing, then when he wakes it would be covered with a sheet of snow? Thanks :)

Hello, Vypermojo,
I think it would still work but it would be weakened. Especially if you're using something that the snow could easily wash away (once it turns into slush)
Take care

Okay just to be certain I understand this. You would lay your curse, then after you are finished you would place the Quincunx at that point to seal in your spell? Is this right?

Thanks for the tips on the snow or rain. I will make sure to watch for favorable weather. :)

Can I lay down tricks in the same place more than once? As in powders to be walked on?

Hi spydacular,

Yes you can, especially with powders as they will disperse over time.

Good luck.

How does one go about dressing a name or petition paper in a quincunx pattern?

All the images of the pattern that I've seen includes dotted line-- do i trace the lines with my finger as well or just the dot the four corners and the center?
Thank you St. Jude! Your help was much appreciated!

You dot the 4 corners and the center of a name paper or petition paper.
