Hoodoo spellwork and rituals for self-protection and how to get “payback” when you’re wronged.
Features 129 spells, 32 recipes, and numerous rituals.
Historically, Hoodoo was the magic of the disenfranchised, marginalized, and vulnerable. It was born of the need to obtain justice, power, and protection, as these were not typically naturally forthcoming. The ancestors and earliest practitioners of Hoodoo were enslaved African Americans, followed by their descendants and neighbors.
How does one obtain justice if the system is inherently skewed against you? Hoodoo has developed a vast arsenal of justice and payback spells—spells intended to create a balance of power, punish victimizers, and protect victims from further victimization. It also empowers the victimized, so that they are able to rise above their situations, restore self-esteem, and create better, happier lives for themselves. The spells vary from mild to aggressive, depending on the personal level of justification.
Hoodoo Justice Magic contains a diverse collection of these spells, as well as an exploration of their ethics. (Are you really justified? And what happens if you’re not?) Featuring 129 spells, 32 recipes, and numerous rituals, there are also 27 prayers for people who fear actually performing spellwork. The spells incorporate common household articles, such as salt and spices, as well as candles, tarot cards, and recitation of Psalms. Learn how to protect yourself and avoid trouble by recognizing the signs indicating predatory behavior. (Although several spells incorporate specific tarot cards, no previous knowledge or experience of them is required, as they are used as materials or objects that radiate magic power.)
