Silver vs sterling silver?

Unread postby Odessa » Wed Feb 08, 2012 5:17 pm

Is there any difference between sterling silver and the silver content in the Mercury dime? ( magick wise?) is one better than another? Are they equally in properties?

Mercury dime has its place in conjure, read further here (http://www.luckymojo.com/silverdime.html) ....These dimes are a powerful and useful magical curio that is often employed in Hoodoo for luck, protection and wealth. It is said that a Mercury Dime from a leap year was the most powerful amulet for gambling luck and if it was from your birth year, even better!

Sterling silver is currently set at a legal limit as an alloy of silver containing 92.5% by mass of silver and 7.5% by mass of other metals -- however, the term originally referred to coin silver, specifically a type of coin with little stars on it (sterling means a little star). So although sterling is the old name for highly purified silver from which coins used to be made, and the silver content of US silver coins is .900 -- not .925 -- the coins are still considered more or less equivalent to sterling silver, except by metallurgists.

I have just constructed a mercury dime anklet. I used a barrel knot and tied nine pieces of devil's shoestring into the knots. I used rather thick hemp twine. The finished amulet is 9 knots and the mercury dime. I anointed it with Fiery Wall of Protection oil from Lucky Mojo. Does this sound ok?

Two Dollar Bill Questions and Answers

Unread postby Sands » Sun May 20, 2012 11:23 am

I ordered a mojo several months ago and I am finally ready to use it right away, to ward off something. However, I have discovered that a $2.00 bill is required, as per the enclosed instructions. It must either be brand new or issued in a leap year. I found one and it apparently was not issued in a leap year. Are there alternatives to such a specification? Or must I follow the requirements exactly in order for the mojo to be effective?

I understand. Keep in mind that the instructions are set up the way they are for a reason. I'm not saying using a substitution will nullify it completely, but it won't work as well as if done properly. "Brand new" does not mean "this year." It means "crisp and fresh."

I don't know if the mojo bag was from Lucky Mojo, but I don't recall the directions of any of the mojo bags saying the bill *must* have been issued in a leap year. Brand new is always lucky for bills, but if all you can get from a bank is a brand new 2 dollar bill that was issued in a non-leap year, I'd go ahead and use it.

Good luck,

(And, no, the instructions do NOT say that the two dollar bill "must" have been issued during a leap year or "must" be brand new, only that coins and bills issued during leap years, and brand new coins and bills, are preferred because they are considered more lucky than worn-out ones or those issued during non leap years. Since two dollar bills from a bank are de facto "brand new," the qualification of "brand new" is quite simple to fulfill and should be a cause of triumphal success, not a cause of frustrated despair! How people can turn an anecdotal folkloric recommendation into a strict prohibition against NOT following the anecdotal folkloric recommendation is truly beyond my simple understanding.)

I used a twenty dollar bill in my mojo bag because I could not get a two dollar bill. I think that a twenty dollar bill is just as lucky as a two dollar bill. But, what do you think? Will my spell still work?

Aaery,

A twenty dollar bill does not have the same sort of thing going on as a two dollar bill. Two dollar bills are lucky because they are rare, twenty's are common. That isn't to say that your spell will fail tho, but it is not the same as using a two dollar bill.

I know this is an older thread, but no one addressed the poster's comment that the bag had been purchased and sat unused for several months. My understanding of mojo bags is a few things - it is alive - it has spirit to it and that spirit must be fed regularly and trained to the owner of the bag, else it dies. I'd be concern if this bag was sitting in a drawer unattended to for a long time. When you make or get a mojo it's like getting a pet or (at least) a houseplant. You need to give it attention for it to flourish.

I know some bags are prepared up to the point of having the client add personal concerns and such, but is there a time limit?

Ames, you are right -- a mojo bag is made "alive" by breath and prayer and should not sit around in a drawer. "Personalization" is not the same as making it live. If it has set around, you would have to go through the "enlivening" process again -- and, if you are a good, accomplished worker, you would anyway, if you opened the bag and placed a personal item inside it.

I used to keep a dressed and blessed 20 in my wallet as part of a money stay with me. $2 bills in the wallet are quite common. As a kid my mom would give me one every pay period. The deal with the $2 bill is "luck". Some people out there say they're good luck, others say they're bad luck. Similar to the use of the black cat bone (among other things) using a $2 bill is taking something that was otherwise considered negative and using it to your advantage.

So, substituting a $2 bill for a $20 bill is different in that... a 20 may function to draw money, while the $2 bill may function to draw good luck, repel bad luck, and protect your finances. So, yes, a $20 bill can work to draw money to you, but it's function is different from that of a $2 bill.

Hi, guys!

I wanted to put together my mojo, and the instructions call for a $2.00 bill and a dime with your birth year on it.

I got the birth year dime with no problems,

When I got my $2.00 bill, I didn't check that it had my birth year on it -- and it did not.

I haven't put my mojo together yet because of that bill not having my birth year on it.

Am I interpreting the instructions correctly when I try to get both with my birth year, or did it mean that only the dime had to have the birth year? :?:

Two dollar bills were not made in every year, therefore you cannot logically expect to purchase a two sollar bill with your birth year on it. We have two dollar bills for sale, but they are not sorted according to birth year.

2 Dollar Bills.

Unread postby Vera » Wed Aug 07, 2013 5:52 am

A couple of days ago, I headed to a pawn shop to sell some pieces of jewelry to make ends meet. To my dismay, the shop owner handed me $34.00 in 2009 crispy $2.00 bills.
They may be lucky bills but I do have a dilemma as I need the extra cash and hate the thoughts of spending them.
Not sure why he gave them to me;would have been happy with one or two but 17 of them?
Any thoughts on what to do with them? Save them and perhaps again sell some stuff to compensate or just use them.
Thank you and much blessings.

I received a Mercury Dime for Christmas. My room-mate already put it in a holder that I can put a chain on. Since I already have so many necklaces that get tangled up I was thinking about wearing it as an anklet like described in the HITAP pages. I guess my questions are since it is a gift, can I continue to use it even after it tarnishes or takes a hit? Can I use it also in mojo bags and continue to reuse it? Or should I really get more mercury dimes and use each for different purposes. Wasn't sure if you all dispose of your mercury dimes after using them in bags or charms as there are a limited number any more. I hope that made sense.

Hello, Gunterk,
I would personally use different ones for different purposes. But that's just me. Other rootworkers may give you other valuable advice
Of course, they can be cleaned and re-used
And I would NEVER dispose of them. If I was using one, for example, in a mojo hand and the mojo hand was dying, I would take that dime, clean and bless it, and use it for another mojo hand (after cleansing).
Now, if it took a hit, no, I don't think I would be using that dime for other purposes.
I hope this made sense.
Take care

Okay, here's a question for ya'll... A dear friend of mine works as a curb painter (painting the street address number on the curb in front of people's houses). She charges $20 per address. Recently she was paid in $2 bills (ten of them). She's wondering if she should be keeping these bills for luck purposes, or if she should just keep one of them and spend the rest, or should she spend them on a project that's quite important to her??? What is the significance of $2 bills that come to you unrequested? It's a question I've never encountered before, hence the shout out for help! :) Thanks in advance to everyone!

Hello, all.
I've read a bit about Indian-head cents, and am interested in getting some. I read a spell somewhere on here about nailing them above your door way to keep away the law. My question is, do you nail them facing outward or does it matter? It makes more sense to me to do it that way, but I wasn't sure. I'm going to have to figure out how to get them up without actually putting a hole through them. I would not feel good about putting a hole through a piece of history lol

Hello, VeggieKiller,
Have you read this page yet? www.luckymojo.com/indianheadcent.html
I would face them outward because they are keeping an eye out.
As far as the silver dime, I would use a very little bit of the shavings and then make sure to strain it.
Read more here: www.luckymojo.com/silverdime.html
But, if you're uncomfortable, then please don't do anything that makes you feel that way.
Hope this helps
Take care

Thank you, Miss Aida! That page is how I discovered Indian Head cents, but as it did not really specify to nail them facing outwards, I wasn't sure. However, it makes perfect sense to do it that way, and I was pretty sure that that was the right thing to do. I just was not certain. Thank you for clarifying though!

As for the filings for a mercury dime, I hadn't read about straining them first! I'm relieved to hear that that. At first, I was a little worried when I thought about people drinking metal filings. Doesn't seem too good for the digestive tract. lol

Silver has been ingested in small quantities for centuries. It was a common remedy for intestinal issues in the ancient world and was also used as a container for milk. Silver was believed to be a preservative for milk and so it was always stored in silver.

In large quantities anything can be dangerous, but there is a history to silver in milk. Even today there are some alternative practices that involve ingesting silver in the form of Collodial Silver not to mention the opulent garnishes of silver and gold. But like Miss Aida said, if you are uncomfortable, just don't do it.

The local currency question is deeper than you might think! Rootwork is all about local botany issues!

To me, the main question is not about a rule, but about a concept: what is the money FOR?

If you are doing a Lodestone spell to attract money, you want it in the local currency, right? Same thing for hunting money -- it won't hunt if it can't get out there and work!

On the other hand, as a lucky piece we may want something more exotic or rare. I carry foreign bills in my wallet because I love travel and want spirit to know I'm ready to go!

The actual imagery on some money is the key as well: the word Liberty, the depiction of Mercury, etc.

Many blessings,

The spells that specify *particular* money should use that money. Even in the US, we have to go to coin shops to find the right coins!

Our money happens to come in fives, the norm for every place I've been.

Perhaps you can give me an example of what you're thinking?

When working lodestones and the like, I use bigger bills to attract more money.

Many blessings,

Well, let's consider...

The power of the first three (nickel, dime, quarter) comes from them being hidden at a crossroads. So it's not the American currency so much as three non-penny coins being empowered. Three is a lucky number, and it repeats in the three silver dimes.

Now, silver dimes are hard to come by. They have intrinsic value rather than being mere legal tender. If I were doing the spell, I would purchase three silver dimes from Lucky Mojo. It adds the benefit of tradition to the work...

Many blessings,

Tao And Zen, the particular magical value of the U.S. Liberty Dime -- or as it is often called by magical workers, the "Mercury Dime" -- is the symbolism on the coin and the silver it is made of. You gave us such a lovely lesson on peach trees in Chinese magic last week :) and I'd like to return the favor by directing you to this page:

AllsingI,

The magical uses of US currency have deeper roots in history than the current size of the national debt. Some US coins and bills are lucky in themselves, for reasons having to do with the design and the cultural associations of the bills and coins themselves. You will find much more information in this thread -- where I am moving your post.

Good luck,

LM also sells American currency at face value, but does charge shipping. The same can be purchased or any bank if you ask for them. If your reason for asking was due to availability I hope that helps!

I live in Europe, do I still put a 2 dollar bill or the local currency that's equivalent to $2?

Birthdate coins

Unread postby Moonlightdream » Tue Feb 10, 2015 10:19 am

Hi,
I want to order a nation sack mojo. I know that coins with my birthdate and his birthdate needs to be bought as well. Does LM provide coins with specific birthdate, ex 1984 and 1981? What more do I need for a nation sack? Thanks

Hello, Moonlightdream,

Yes, we do sell them (they don't just provide them). You would have to order seperately

I am moving and merging your post to the appropriate subforum where your questions will be answered about the coins.

Wishing you the very best

Hello,

Sorry to ask a dumb question but does it have to be of a year according to your list? Mercury dime, leap years would be 1916, 1920, 1924, 1928, 1932, 1936, 1940, and 1944 ?

Hllo, Lovemydogs ,

I am sorry but I have no idea what you are asking us.

Can you be more specific?

Hello :)

Your little picture there of the mercury dime is of the year 1941 and all I was asking was wouldn't the coin have to be from the leap years of 1940 or 1944?

I am definitely interested in purchasing one but would you be able to tell me the page where I can go to to read about all of your choices of coins that you sell and what they are good for?

Thank You!
Lovemydogs
