A Workshop For Every Taste In Conjure

This year's Hoodoo Heritage Festival has it all, with workshops on everything from Sex to Death to Starshine. And you can join us! 

Zoom along live Saturday and Sunday, September 11-12, in the comfort of your own home. Then return to the recorded classes at your own pace. 

We'll have discount readings from your favorite Hoodoo Psychics, and the first 200 US ticket-holders will receive our acclaimed Goody Boxes, hand-packed this year by our own Ms. Robin and featuring THREE new books! 


Among the workshops that have got people talking...

"Down-Home Sex Magic" is Miss Cat Yronwode's latest book, debuting at this year's festival. If you know Miss Cat, then you know she's not shy about sex in general -- or sex magic in particular!

From ruling your partner through sexual fluids to Paschal Beverly Randolph's "Mysteries of Eulis," Miss Cat opens the bedroom door on the private rites that root doctors only whisper about. 

Ms. Robin takes her camera to the cemetery to buy graveyard dirt in her much anticipated workshop, which will also open us up to the world of mediumistic seances and spirit-led divination.

She's collected graveyard dirt for each of us, which will be included in the Goody Boxes!

Many past attendees have asked for a BASIC primer in Astrology, and this year Evan Lionhart delivers -- in his inimitable and personable style. Perfect for beginners and old-timers alike!

A newly restored e-book of "Your Birth Star Influences and What They Mean" will be your introductory guide to the 12 signs of the Zodiac.

Uncover the meaning behind your Sun, Moon, and Ascendant signs and craft an astrologically-aligned mojo bag designed to draw out your personal power!

And of course there's much, much more! Check out the full list of teachers and classes at!

Traditional Conjure With Sister Jacqueline 

One of the most often discussed subjects asked about on Hoodoo Psychics is spell work for love. Love is a powerful emotion, and unless it is harnessed by logic, can produce actions that are unexplainable and uncontrollable. This is because love is a deep feeling that shakes our core, causes us dizzying highs and G-force plunging lows on an emotional rollercoaster as we manifest a new loving relationship or maintain longevity in a current one.

In the history of setting lights, or burning candles and other objects of illumination of prayers, the ancient civilizations used oil lamps in temple or home altar settings. As we as a people evolved, the early ancestors learned that melting sheep and beef fat carved from the animals that were hunted for consumption, was a resource for light. Sticks and/or woven string material were dipped over and over into the tallow, allowed to dry, and then stored to produce light at night for seeing. The production of petroleum was the advancement of our modern day candle, which in early times was white. In the last 50 years or so, the addition of dyes and tints to the liquid wax before cooling is the latest metamorphosis of our candles we use today.

Many seek to use candle burning rituals to enhance attraction or to sustain compatibility. The use of candle colors in modern day spell casting has always been a subject of conversation between client and spiritual worker. Let's learn about the differences in love candle colors:


The message of a white candle is Purity, Innocence, Cleanliness, Peace (of a higher spiritual nature), and Clarity. Using white candles in love spell work allows a calm feeling to be imparted onto the couple or situation. To create a sense of calm, rational thought and visions and plans for the future are more clearly defined, and the positive strategies for success can be well thought out before action.

The use of white or "natural" wax as a candle color is a universal "back up plan" for all candle spells. In nature, Sunlight is considered white, and that white light is a mixture of all colors, but we cannot see it as separate colors. So with that in mind, we can safely use a white candle for all candle spells (both positive and negative) when we do not have a tinted candle on hand.


Using red candles in your love spell work can work both in a positive or a less favorable way. Red is the power of energy and attention. Think of a red chili when you bite it. The heat you feel from the chili that is burning your tongue makes you "pay attention" to what is happening and you dash to get the milk carton! The most delicious fruits are red - strawberries, cherries, and red delicious apples (not to mention raspberries, which are a fuchsia red-pink). Red demands immediate attention and that is why it is used in "Fast Luck" candle spells.

The use of red candles in a relationship is to get their attention, "heat up" the romance, incite sexual desire, and to bring on the passion! This is why red roses are the most popular flower and color for Valentine's Day bouquets as the declaration of passion for someone is the end effect for the action on that day.  It is advised to use red candles in a relationship with caution, as too much of a good thing could change to a relationship that is more physical, and potentially could be contrary to the intended final outcome between you and the other person.


Pink is a perfect combination of the passion of red and the sanctity of white. Pink is soft, romantic, and affectionate. Pink tempers the heat of physical attraction with clarity to get to know the mind, heart, and feelings of the other participant. When used in the situation of a break-up or misunderstanding between two lovers, pink sends the spiritual message "I really love you for you" and not "I want sexual healing" like red candles might induce. In times of relationship troubles, using pink candles with a petition reminding them of the laughter, fun, cuddling, closeness, loving support, care, and concern that you both had for each other is the best choice of action.

As with all candles, making sure you properly cleanse them, anoint them with the appropriate anointing or condition oil, passing them through incense (your outcome may vary), and praying or chanting over them before lighting is a good rule of thumb. Many affix a petition or photograph of the couple on the candle glass side, or place it under the candle. Intention and staying focused on your desired outcome is a must for success in all candle work, and often spending time with your candle in meditation or prayer is suggested. Give yourself and the candle energy time to do its work, but always set a "down and dirty time". This is when you will consider making changes to your candle routine so that you are not pining away for a relationship that shows no changes since the first candle.

Each person has a unique situation with their relationships, and this article gives you a primer on how to do your own candle spell work. For serious work, it is always advised to seek the assistance of a professional and talented rootworker, spiritual coach, or spellcaster. These individuals have taken the courses and learned the techniques to apply to situations and may be a truly excellent source of coaching or work. After all, we do this type of work each and everyday!

There are less than 24 hours to preorder Artisan Tarot's newly restored 78-card Nicolas Conver Tarot deck on Kickstarter. When you pre-order the deck, you'll also receive a postcard set, a button, and a magnet. This will be the only time that you can get these items for free!

Produced in Marseille in 1760 by Nicolas Conver, the cards were believed to hold ancient, esoteric wisdom and were used for divination. The Nicolas Conver Tarot has influenced many popular decks including the Rider-Waite-Smith deck.

The restoration consisted of meticulously redrawing and recoloring the original images. Details were then clarified by comparing them to other historic Tarot de Marseille decks. "Our goal was not to create an exact reproduction, but an elegant, refined deck that would inspire the imagination of the modern reader," says William Rader of Artisan Tarot.

On Thursday, join a celebration for the end of the
Kickstarter campaign. "We will take you behind the scenes to show you how we ran our campaign and will share an updated timeline," says Rader. "Plus, be the first to see the next deck we are restoring!"
