(i hope this is the right place to post this) I was the first caller of the show on 2/27/2011, re: veterinary work and I asked if I could do Orion Foxwoods 's key ceremony with the crossroads work you suggested...what I meant to ask was:

If i do the key ceremony will that help in dealing with the "wrong place" even though I will be successful in my Veterinary pursuits despite it. Or would i need separate work for that? My line of thinking is that the keys will help me connect with the spirit of place as well as fulfilling the original purpose of the work.

I never thought utah would be the place to finish my schooling, just to get a solid start. There was/is some strife with living here but luckily the university just implemented a program where pre-vet students will do 4 years @ USU and finish at Washington State University... but dealing with living in utah is something I'm constantly trying to work at.
anyway I hope that makes sense.....

and of course about a million other questions came to my mind AFTER the call..I was so flustered being the first caller and getting to actually talk with two amazing workers.
thank you again, over and over, for doing the reading and helping me set my course.

Kassie,

As i understood you, Orion's key ritual at the crossroads was to open roads to your career. If he intended it otherwise, you should speak to him about that.

If you wish to nail down your location and make it "yours," i would cleanse the home with Chinese Wash, to which was added a small amount of House Blessing Oil, then use one of the many hoodoo nailing ceremonies (e.g. with horseshoe nails inside the house, square nails outside the house, and railroad spikes on the four corners of the property) -- blessing the nails with House Blessing Oil to make the place feel more like it belongs to you.

Yes, you could drive to the four corners of Utah and do the same... :-)

Good luck.

Since you and Dr. K were kind enough to counsel me on some crossroads work and I've drawn out a plan for that working and wanted to run it by you, if you had time to put eyes on it, and anyone else is welcome to comment on it as well. But I figured that it was good others to see what a newbie is up to at home ...try and share my experience. sorry for the list...I'm a list oriented person! lol. Thanks in advance!!!

[EDIT: This entire spell was removed as it was a flagrant COPYRIGHT VIOLATION of material written and published by Orion Foxwood in his "Faery Seership" material. It is absolutely against the rules of this forum to rip off authors! --cat]

Sunday is the most traditional day in hoodoo. Your mileage may vary!

Hello,
I'm new to the forums and new to folk magic so I'm going to ask a question and hope someone can give me a hand (no pun intended). ;)

I have a skeleton key and I would like to do a crossroads ritual to charge the key for general protection. I would then wear the key as a amulet of sorts. Is this possible? If so any suggestions on what exactly I should or should not be doing?

Any help would be deeply appreciated. :D

Sabina

Hello!

I've heard and read about Fixed Crossroads Key a couple of times but there doesn't seem to be much info. I was hoping to create a fixed crossroads key for occult mastery for either a charm on a Mojo Hand ill be constructing shortly for occult mastery or as a talisman for the same propose

I already have the entire Master Key line of products, however, i'd like to know what other LM products to use or any other suggestions

Thanks in advanced!

On the Lucky Mojo Hoodoo Rootwork Hour, I've heard Dr. E talk about doing crossroads work with keys -- but this was in the context of Court Case work.

Hope this helps,

Crossroads work with keys is done for far more than court case work. I've discussed this on the radio show quite often. Fixed keys can be used for success, opening roads, as well as legal work to put someone either in jail or get them out.

One can also dress a skeleton key with Master Key oil and wear it to "unlock" situations they may encounter during the course of the day, both spiritual and physical.

You are very welcome! I love working with skeleton keys and "master keys" very much. They are richly symbolic and work wonders.

Is there anything I need to know about using a skeleton key for crossroads work? I have never used one before and I was wandering if I needed to do anything to it prior to using it in spell work. I noticed a comment suggesting that they were considered powerful in hoodoo. Can anyone offer some additional guidance on this subject?

Hi Anais,

I went ahead and merge your post to an established thread that discusses Skeleton Keys. Be sure to check out the previous posts above to get some insight. Be sure to listen to previous episodes of the Lucky Mojo Hoodoo Rootwork Hour as working with Skeleton Keys have been recommended to callers before. Such as this last Sunday, 5/18/2014 episode, Conjureman Ali gave an excellent work to one of the callers using skeleton keys.

Best of luck to you!
