Excited to learn and practice.

My name is Ashley and I am pretty new to hoodoo, though not as much to witchcraft (though I am not very experienced in that field either). I found this site through another, which I've had some work done, and found the idea of legitimately learning the...well...the everything about hoodoo very appealing. It's very hard to find good instructors but I got a good feeling about this one when I read her guidelines for students. I have already begun my journey by ordering one book (for now) and reading about the informants that Hyatt interviewed. I have immensely enjoyed it thus far.

I'm normally not a social person but being in college (and away from a controlling and abusive ex) has made me better at it. Discussions in forums is a requirement and I've found that it isn't as bad as I dreaded.

I currently live in Kentucky and am a full time college student as well as a full time dog groomer, working for myself with my own business (as of Monday, February 4, 2019). I am a Pisces and have found myself drawn to water and it's many aspects. My hobbies include motorcycling, reading, writing, arts and crafts of any kind, and I am working on building up a collection of oddities.

Hi arepperson89,

Welcome to the Lucky Mojo forum! We're glad you've found us.

I'm glad you appreciate what you've been learning so far. Miss cat is the authority on hoodoo and you will learn a lot from this forum and from her free online Hoodoo in Theory and Practice pages. Dig in and enjoy!

I am posting links to the most popular threads and some forum rules for you to look over. We look 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 to give you a jumping off point:

Hoodoo History:
http://luckymojo.com/hoodoohistory.html

Mojo Hands:
http://luckymojo.com/mojo.html

Oils:

Baths:

Powders:

Incense:

Candles:

Herbs:

Conditions and how we can address them:
http://luckymojo.com/hoodooataglance.html

Here is some info on how the forums are set up. It is divided into four major 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 five 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 about religions to which you may have previously been an adherent or comments in which you seek to falsely conflate any religion with the practice of evil sorcery.

4) Please do not start new topics; we have thousands of topic-threads already in place.

5) Please do not quote people by using the copy-paste function; it wastes space.

I looked over the rules but haven't made to the FAQ's yet.

Thank you very much for the links and information! I will definitely continue looking through everything once I have time!

Welcome to the LM forum!
Remember, the only wrong questions... are the ones you don't ask.

Have fun!

Thank you! And that makes me feel better. I'm always paranoid about sounding ridiculous or asking a repeat question. I still haven't had much time to explore the forum yet; is there a way to find out if a question has already been asked? Or will I just be directed to the other post, if it exists?

Hi arrepperson89,

You can search the forum using the little search bar in the upper right corner of the page.

Also if you click on Board Index in the navigation bar, you will see the list of categories that the forum is divided into, and clicking on any of those categories will show you the list of topics it contains.

Please don't repeat your question or ask it in different topics, as this would be against forum rules. Trust that we will see your question when you ask it the first time, and a moderator will answer you as soon as possible.

There really aren't any "ridiculous" questions. We are here to help everyone, so feel free to reach out when you want to know something.

I hope this helps, and I look forward to seeing you out on the board!

Shelly,

Thank you! I am normally not very social, myself, but once I get to know you, you can't get me to shut up! 🤣
