Category spell casting – association of independent readers and rootworkers

Clients will seek out hoodoo rootworkers to cast love spells for a number of different reasons, ranging from a desire to find a suitable partner for marriage and starting a family, to finding a partner interested in a casual one night fling. Love and romance spells are some of the most commonly asked for kinds of spell work. They rely on the use of candles, roots and herbs, oils, and natural curios that are said to be efficacious in drawing, keeping, and sustaining a loving relationship and/or partner. One will find a few objects that are ubiquitous in their application to love and romance work including: Lodestones (used to draw a specific person to someone else or to draw two people together), honey jars (used for sweetening one person to another), Personal Concerns (skin, hair, saliva, clothing, and/or sexual fluids), plain candles, and figural candles (male and female or male and female genitalia) which can be dressed with love drawing and love keeping roots, herbs, oils, and sachet powders and used in love and romance workings.


Among the specific kind of spells we find for love and romance, there are spells to draw and keep a specific partner, spells to draw and keep an unknown partner with a specific list of qualities, spells to fire up one’s sex life or romantic life, spells to make oneself appear more attractive and desirable, spells for tying and untying someone’s Nature, and spells for reconciling with an ex.

For many spiritual workers, there is nothing more satisfying than assisting clients to become financially secure through career success. Even during hard economic times, there is a feeling of positivity and uplift that accompanies the casting of spells, the making of mojo bags and jomos, the preparation and empowerment of charms, amulets, and talismans, or the burning of magically anointed candles for a client who is seeking to live a productive and successful life.

If a divination — for instance by card reading, pendulum consultation, or psychic reading — indicates that the client’s career success is being held back because he or she has been crossed, jinxed, or cursed, the rootworker’s first step will be to remove the curse or break the jinx. This can be accomplished by spiritual bathing and cleansing, either in person or at a distance.

Once the client is free from old messes, the rootworker will seek to open the client’s road. Tools and techniques employed by a conjure doctor who is casting spells for career success range from altar work and affirmative prayers to the preparation of bottle spells, fixed curios and talismans, and custom mojo hands to the setting of anointed and dressed candles and the prescription of spiritual conjure oils, herbs, baths, incenses, and powders for the client to use.

When a person is suffering through a run of bad luck, unnatural illness, or a string of unexplained accidents, it is often said that they have come under crossed conditions or that the jinx is on them. Knowing how to uncross a client or take off a jinx is one of the most basic, and most often requested jobs that a conjure doctor can perform on behalf of clients. This type of spell work, sometimes called block-buster or jinx breaking, is very important when dealing with clients for whom an ordinary cleansing and blessing has failed to produce relief from negative situations.

Like other conjure spell casting, uncrossing work can take several forms, depending on the nature of the case and the inclination of the rootworker. In-person bathing and foot washing are among the most traditional forms of uncrossing, but the same sort of work can be performed by bathing at a distance, with vigil lights, and through prayer.

Once the client’s jinx has been broken or the crossed conditions removed, it is customary to finish the work by performing a road-opening to clear the client’s way for new experiences and to unlock the way to more money, love, and luck. Road Opener spell-casting is quite often performed with vigil lights, accompanied by the prescription of spiritual supplies or the preparation of a mojo hand or lucky talisman to carry on the person.

Reversing work is not to be confused with cursing, because it reflects back, rather than originates, harmful spells which may have been be cast against an individual. Reversing work is often compared to using a mirror, and the analogy is so strong that a number of well-known and powerful spells for reversal work employ literal mirrors in the crafting of the spell.

A psychic vision spell conducted on behalf of a client This type of spell casting requires that the spiritual worker have a natural gift for mentally contacting, perceiving, and communicating with or to the spirit of the targeted individual. This style of spell casting, sometimes called telepathic, astral, or mental work, is a development of specific talents such as clairvoyant reading, clairaudient reading, and empathic reading.

Once contact has been established with the target individual he or she wishes to influence, the conjure worker must call the spirit and communicate a request, desire, or command. This can be done while the target is awake or asleep, although many workers do prefer to make the contact while the target is asleep, as they find it easier to insinuate their own will and thoughts into the target’s unconscious mind. Mental influence or astral spellwork can be a very useful and effective method of working by itself, but it is often used in combination with other techniques and tools, such as burning candles and incense, or working with a doll-baby.

A Hot Foot spell that employs a bottle filled with red peppers and vinegar, a Hot Foot Candle, and a ferocious black cat; a black obsidian scrying ball enables the rootworker to keep track of the spell’s effects on the target One of the main reasons that clients who are familiar with hoodoo rootwork will pay money to hire a conjure doctor is to cast spells that they themselves are reluctant to learn or to perform, and among such spells, those that are hostile, aggressive, or angry are the most common.

Some spiritual workers refuse on principle to cast any spells of aggression, and some who do undertake dark work of this sort will only cast such spells to protect themselves and their family, but never for hire. Their refusal to undertake bad work or enemy jinxing spells for a client usually has nothing to do with how "strong" they are as magicians; most likely they are what is called "lady-hearted workers" — that is, they are morally unwilling to hurt people or animals while casting spells.
