cOnJuRe & Hoodoo

Hoodoo, not to be confused with Voodoo, is a type of folk magic based mostly on African rituals, customs and lore.

When African slaves were brought to America, they were stripped of their religious beliefs and familial connections. However, much of their magical practices remained. African-American rootworkers acquired herbal knowledge from Native Americans. Later, when the United States was influenced by the resurgence of Hermetic magic that spread across Europe, African-American rootworkers began studying Kabalistic traditions. The result was the mixing of folk magic with Judeo-Christian sources, such as incorporating the Book of Psalms in various spells.

Yep, I agree. All good thoughts and points, thanks!

I tend to gravitate to Africa, African based music, ancestry, practices, etc.  I believe I had a past life in Africa.

Actually you mind more people with hoodoo down south, and oddly people with not as much money.  You  tend to forage for what you need, which, as a kitchen witch, I've always done.  

     That being said, if you gravitate towards a practice, are drawn to it, then you are supposed to be there.  I'm on a few groups on fb.

I'm not practicing but I feel Hoodoo is for anyone.  Along with any tradition each practitioner should do a little homework to understand they're practice and where it originated.  I used to read Hoodoo articles by this lady (wish I could remember her name)  who was white and she was very knowledgeable.  However Hoodoo is associated with African slaves so understandably some would disagree it's appropriate for just anyone.

Anyone can practice Hoodoo, just like anyone can practice Voodoo(Vodun)If you are a solitary you don't need to worry about the coven type 'clubs'

Thoughts on appropriation (only black people can practice Hoodoo...)?
