Questions You’ve Asked: Patron Saints Playing Favorites

A client is getting set up with some Law Keep Away work, some of which involves physical items being installed at the front entrance where a St. Michael paket has been living. She wonders if she needs to move/remove St. Michael, whom she petitions for physical and spiritual protection, since he’s “the patron saint of police and general law and order guy.”

What a great question!

Short answer, no. No need to remove St. Michael.

A fixed paket of the type I used to make for clients/customers, when I could still source those detentes for reasonable prices. I haven’t been able to do that since reopening, but I like them very much and I hope I can offer them again one of these days.

Longer answer explaining my rationale: for one, human beings declared him the patron saint of law enforcement – he didn’t proclaim himself that lol… and even if he has shown a propensity for watching out for law enforcement, he certainly hasn’t done so to the exclusion of anyone else. IOW, law enforcement doesn’t have the corner on St. Michael.

Now he is a “law and order guy,” and I would not necessarily expect him to have my back if I, as a devotee of his, were to go out, get fucked up as a rat, and start a fight in a situation that didn’t need a fight, thus causing unnecessary chaos. But a fight for a good cause? Might be a different story – and that might be so even if in the eyes of the law it made me guilty of assault and battery.

IOW, angels and saints are not and have never been especially known for being huge champions of human codifications of law, order, and morality. Or to put it another way, in a standoff, St. Michael would have Valjean’s back, not Javert’s.

But another consideration too: even if St. Michael tended to “take the side” of the person working in the name of human law over another person, working to stay off the radar of some authority doesn’t necessarily equate to being against that authority. I can think of a dozen good reasons off the top of my head to want to avoid being the person an agency or authority focused on that don’t have anything to do with me breaking any laws in my city, state, or country. And I can think of a dozen more off the top of my head that might technically involve some law-breaking but there’s something about the situation, or the system, or the local authority, or the law itself, where the morality of the situation does not match the letter of the law that’s on the books.

And in any case it’s totally possible for me to break the law regularly while still having respect for members of law enforcement and not wanting them to be hurt in the course of doing their job. And to have respect for them but not ever want to see them knocking on my front door 🙂

Now would I count on him to have my back if I wanted to injure a member of law enforcement in the course of doing whatever I’m doing? No. And I would not expect him to have the back of a member of law enforcement who wanted to injure me, either, like set out with that intent. IOW, I think intent matters here, as does general moral orientation. And you know, like Santa Muerte, St. Michael is commonly depicted holding a set of scales or balances in his hand. That’s a reminder in both cases of their roles in weighing the heart or soul of an individual at the personal judgment when that person dies and/or at the general judgment day at the end of time when eternal judgment is passed on everyone who ever lived. And while they might help out with the weighing ritual, only God gets to do that ultimate judging.

So it doesn’t actually matter what we people think. We don’t have the final say, we humans, and we are flawed and imperfect and so are our systems and governments. And that is how it can be possible that Santa Muerte is called on to protect both members of law enforcement and those who regularly run afoul of the law in Mexico. It’s not because she just adores cops or she just adores criminals. It’s because she is a champion of those who find they have to live dangerous lives on the margins of society in one way or another, and her perspective is much larger than ours. So with any saint’s. So with St. Michael. We do not have the big picture, but certainly heaven and hell are not being run the same way as FCI Talladega or Folsom Prison 🙂

St. Michael Niner Chaplet Bracelet

This one of a kind chaplet bracelet is handmade with 5mm ruby red glass beads, an ornate crucifix with a bronze-toned antiqued patina imported from Italy, a chain extension and lobster clasp if you want to wear it or secure it around a statue or rearview mirror, and a holy medal of St. Michael handpainted in bright and durable enamels. 

The saintly protector par excellence, Michael is called on to defend against dangers both spiritual and physical and from enemies both known and unknown.

Unclasped, this chaplet’s length from end to end is 8.75″. Will fit a 7.5″ wrist, but I’m happy to customize it if you need it shorter or longer. (Just allow a few extra days handling, please!) Medal measures 1″.

This style of chaplet is called a “niner” and is a popular and very portable way of doing a novena for a saint, of keeping your prayer beads close to hand when you’re traveling or need to be more discreet than a full-size rosary might allow, or of having a set of prayer beads the perfect size for wearing as a bracelet or keeping on your car’s rearview mirror or the door knob of your room or home.

One way of praying with a niner chaplet is to call on the saint’s aid on the medal, pray the Our Father x3, the Hail Mary x3, and the Glory Be x3 on the beads, and then the Apostle’s Creed on the crucifix.

Read more about St. Michael (and other saints and angels) in the education section at Big Lucky Hoodoo. And if you’ve never been sure how St. Michael can be a saint and an angel at the same time – and he most certainly is – you can get a little crash course in Catholic ontology at Seraphin Station.

This St. Michael piece is available at Seraphin Station or Etsy.

Drink Whiskey, Pray, and Set the Bed on Fire: A Glimpse into Pandemic Life 120 Years Ago

This was originally posted in my personal blog a few years ago, but besides being a glimpse into how people dealt with pandemics 120 years ago, it references a few things some of y’all might find especially interesting, including folk remedies, patent medicines, home and herbal remedies, speculations about cats and/or comets being the cause of yellow fever outbreaks, and rural Alabama life at the turn of the century. Since my personal blog is mostly dedicated to family and regional history, I approached via the avenue of family history and focused on the areas where I had ancestors at the time *and* access to some actual records, which is mostly along the Gulf Coast from Florida to Louisiana.

It looks like the Florida Memory site won’t let you link directly to pages within its exhibits – I tried, but everything seems to spit you out a level or several above where I wanted to link to. Sorry about that.

Florida Memory has an online exhibition called Pestilence, Potions, and Persistence: Early Florida Medicine which is fascinating (and disgusting, too – don’t forget disgusting). There’s a lot of cool stuff here, including sections on midwifery, yellow fever, hookworm, and an outbreak of bubonic plague in Pensacola in the 1920s, which I didn’t know about ’til I read this. But poking around that got me thinking about how huge a presence yellow fever was in so many of my ancestors’ lives.

Yellow fever, so called because of its tendency to cause jaundice, could be a killer, and medical understanding of it in the 1800s still had a ways to go. If you grew up around it — as you might if you lived in East Africa or Barbados — it might only make you mildly ill for a few days. But if you didn’t have acquired immunity — if, say, you were a European colonist in Barbados, or New York, or Philadelphia, or Santo Domingo, or the Mississippi River Valley — it could kill you and half the people you knew very quickly.

And nobody really understood what caused it. Until the early 1900s, nobody knew it was a virus spread by mosquito bite. Medical understanding of it more than slightly resembled medieval medical understanding of plague – maybe the air in an area basically got miasmic, infected, dangerous. [1] Maybe infected people could infect you, somehow, too, so you’d better stay away from them just in case it’s spread that way. Maybe herbs or fumigation could help. Or maybe you should just relocate until the whole outbreak blows over – hope you can afford to!

Some blamed yellow fever outbreaks in the New World on the wrath of God. Some blamed it on newcomers to the area or unsanitary neighbors. Some blamed it on convergences of things like insect populations, filth, global volcanic behavior, the presence of lots of dead cats, the “putrid exhalations” of a coffee shipment spoiled during import, and/or comet activity. [2] Medical colleges advised burning gunpowder and using vinegar and camphor. [3] People were urged to avoid intemperate consumption of alcohol at the same time they were surrounded by newspaper advertisements for things like Duffy’s Pure Malt Whisky, “A Scientific Remedy, not a Beverage!” [4]

During a Florida outbreak in 1888, Dr. John P. Wall wrote of its “having its origin probably in the filth of the slave ship” and warned about “the necessity and importance of sanitation,” explaining that “the atmosphere of the city where it is prevailing sooner or later becomes infected – poisoned with its morbific agent.” [5]

Wall quotes United States Army surgeon Dr. Sternberg who wrote in 1884 that yellow fever, “like cholera, is contracted in infected localities.” He characterized it as a poison: “In infected places the poison seems to be given off from the soil, or from collections of decomposing organic matter.” [5]

This was your prevailing medical opinion – these were the experts. Nobody knew yet. So how did ordinary people deal with yellow fever outbreaks? Well, that could depend on where they lived, whether urban or rural, whether there was any kind of local health official or not, and whether they had the resources to do things like burn all their bedding or relocate for a while or whether they had to stay put and make do.

June Community Spiritual Services; Bonus Rewards Points

Big Lucky Hoodoo

Community Honey Jars

June community honey jars begin Monday, June 14th. There’s one for love/relationships and one for prosperity/income (which is Pay What You Can). I’ve set it up where you can book through Etsy, too, through the process is a bit clumsier and less straightforward there, sorry to say.

Planetary Work

Mercury Retrograde remediation and the Lucky Stars Sweet Jar for Jupiter in Pisces both have “rolling enrollment,” meaning you can join in at any time during the transit as long as you see spots still open, as I’ll be working some aspect or phase of these continuously.

St. Anthony of Padua 9-Day Service

St. Anthony’s feast day is June 13th, on which night I’ll commence a nine-day vigil, novena and chaplet service.

I’m not sure there’s anything St. Anthony has never been petitioned for by a devotee, but I imagine most petitions are still for finding lost…

The bad news and the great news

The bad news is not news to anybody probably: I’m still not caught up from when I started getting underwater a couple of months ago when we got knocked offline for a while. It’s been one thing after another since then: several predator attacks and chicken deaths, water heater went out, oven went out, offline again for a few more days, car needed new engine, dog needed vet, Mike needed dentist (and caught himself a horrible case of poison ivy the same weekend), etc, etc.

And to be honest, it looks like that’s just what “normal” looks like around here, what with the whole crop-raising, herb-growing, livestock-having, wood-reclaiming, posthole-digging, predator-fending-off rural thing we’ve got going on.

Well, clients and potential customers will only be deferred for the wellbeing of a chicken so many times before the novelty wears off 🙂 and meanwhile I’m running around stressed out all the time because I know I have an out-of-control to-do list. Now I didn’t leave academia and city life and come out here to stare at chicken poop every single morning at dawn in the hopes that I could one day recapture the stress and bustle of city living. And I sure didn’t open up shop again because I was eager to make people wait three weeks to get an email response to a question. This situation won’t do.

Solution: Get some help.

So I set out to hire somebody who has the skill and temperament to do a great job at the things I suck at or at least struggle with. I’ve been trying to do that for a minute now, and I’m really excited to announce:

The Great News

Sonia has joined us at Seraphin Station as a part-time virtual assistant. She’s already learning the ins and outs of the software and platforms and my “filing” (cough) “systems,” and she’s already found and responded to, or informed me of, some email that was sitting around in limbo, so she’s already making things better and she’s only just started training.

There is an awful lot of stuff to comb through with my “filing system” and with all the various social media platforms and communication channels. She’s got her work cut out for her and she’s got to learn her way around quite a few new things. But if I can just keep from scaring her off before she’s had a chance to do that, I am very optimistic about the difference she can make around here.

So join me in welcoming her aboard, and be nice to her if you see her around!

Farewell to Dickhead Joe

Despite his name, he was the best rooster we’ve ever had, and we’ve had a few. He was the last of the original flock we inherited when we moved here. He deserved a longer life.

We think it was some dogs “owned” by these shit-heads who live around here who let their dogs roam wherever they please 24/7. I didn’t catch them in the act, though. I was too late even though he wasn’t even 100 feet from my front door, just into the woodline. People suck. I don’t blame the dogs – I blame their people.

We’re having a hard time at Seraphin Station right now. It’s been a hard year on the chicken front all around, and this one especially sucks.

RIP, Joe Joe. You were such a good boy and I miss you fiercely. I’m sorry you died this way.

Black Destroyer, or the Greased Pig of Cunning Evasion

Black Destroyer formulas are designed to help people clear serious messes out of their lives, protect their homes, and stop curses, evil, and resentment dead in their tracks.

At least that’s basically what the Anna Riva brand bottle said when I bought one 20+ years ago. Imagine my disappointment when I discovered that Alleged Powerful BLACK DESTROYER FOR RITUALS was basically a 4 oz bottle of perfumed mineral oil dyed black. (An oddly sweet perfume, too, given what the formula is supposed to be for.) It was as botanically powerful as a crumpled Pepsi can.

Well, I wanted it to exist, and near as I could tell, it didn’t, not in any big stores anyway, so I borrowed the name and made up my own formula for it (in 2002, according to this note in my formulary notebook from then).

I also made mine in a mineral oil base so that anybody accustomed to using the Anna Riva brand would be on familiar territory. And you can still use it by diluting it into mineral oil and sprinkling it wherever anybody has laid crossing marks or powders or anything else for you. It’s said to neutralize that type of work and to keep evil out of your home.

This is a perfect job for black snakeroot, which I use as the basis for my version. It’s said to be effective protection against snakes, literally and figuratively, so any venomous creatures hiding in the grass waiting to bite you, be they human or otherwise.

Then I figured if I’m already traipsing around the backyard carrying a big old bucket of Black Destroyer diluted into mineral oil, it was already personal, so I might as well send that crap back where it came from. I mean, back in the day, it was pretty much a given that if you went to a worker to have some kind of trick taken off, that worker was gonna return that stuff to the sender as part and parcel of the work. I’m not one to buck tradition!

So I added some blackberry leaves, and not just any blackberry leaves – blackberry leaves that grew in the oldest corner of the cemetery down the street from where we used to live and where my daughter and I spent at least one Sunday afternoon every month for about seven years. We were *really* good friends with some of those folks buried there. (I still have dried blackberry leaves and vines from those same graves, so even to this day, every new mother bottle of Black Destroyer contains them.)

I rounded it out with a few other related ingredients and then had cause to test it out a few times because life in Atlanta was never boring. Fortunately, I’m at least competent with protection and reversing work. 😉 I was delighted. It was a romp. Worked great.

As far as I know, it wasn’t available online as an actual condition oil with actual botanicals/minerals/curios in it prior to that. I had to make it ’cause I couldn’t find it. Did the world really need another condition oil for this? Wouldn’t an existing one have done?

Well, sure, probably so. But the label had been so appealing to me and I was so disappointed when I got it home that I just really wanted this one to exist. Plus, Anna Riva probably got all her stuff from *somewhere,* however watered down or bastardized it ultimately ended up. I like to think that this formula  did have botanicals in it, or at least minerals or something like turpentine, before Anna Riva and Indio got ahold of it. I like to think there was a Black Destroyer once and now it had at least an echo of a new lease on life. (Somebody out there might know if it really did, but that somebody still isn’t me. If you do know, please drop me a line, though, so I can learn too!)

A few years later, an infamous plagiarist of other workers’ writing ripped off my description, in some spots word for word, and started selling this, though Lord only knows what she put in hers. From there it kind of took on a life of its own, as these things are wont to do, and now you can find it all over the place, but from textual analysis and timelines, I suspect most of the listings offering it as an actual condition oil with botanicals in it derive from my or Infamous Plagiarist’s item descriptions. If they mention “messes,” “dead in their tracks,” and a candle spell done with a saucer, you can count on it – I didn’t invent Black Destroyer oil. I just made up my own shit related to it. But that candle spell was mine.

Silly plagiarists.

In any case, this formula is made according to traditional hoodoo correspondences. You can sprinkle it on tricks laid by enemies to kill the trick, and it’s used for jinx-breaking and to protect you and your home from envy, resentment, and negative intentions aimed your way.

If Fiery Wall of Protection is the better-known and slightly spicy go-to formula, the Flaming Shield of the Angels that keeps your enemy at a safe distance from you, then Black Destroyer is the lesser known and slightly pungent Greased Pig of Cunning Evasion that makes your enemy trip in a puddle and splash pig crap into his own face. I credit the blackberry leaves and a couple of mischievous graveyard friends for a lot of that  🙂

Comes in a half ounce bottle. Will not smell like perfume or Bath and Body Works.

How Folk Saints are Born

Big Lucky Hoodoo

Santo Niño Huachicolero emerges as part of modern-day “folk bandit spirituality” in the state of Puebla in Mexico as the patron of huachicoleros – those who steal gasoline. His iconography is adapted from that of Santo Niño de Atocha, the Infant of Atocha, as shown here in this Instagram post if I can get the embed thingie to work:

The Catholic Church is obviously not happy about this, but this is vernacular religion in action, in direct response to social and economic realities when the official modes of religious observation and praxis do not meet the needs of the people. Thus Santo Niño Huachicolero joins the ranks of figures like Jesús Malverde and Santa Muerte who serve to fill those gaps.

Mercury Retrograde service, bonus rewards points

If you find Mercury RX tends to wreak havoc in your life, or you have an important Mercury-ruled event coming up during the retrograde period that you cannot control the timing of, or you just want a little added peace of mind during this transit, that’s what this community ritual service is designed for – to help you navigate this round of Mercury retrograde with minimum fallout.

Work begins on Saturday, May 29th. There is some wiggle room and you can book late as long as you still see available slots.

Learn more or book your spot at Seraphin Station.

Community altar work services focused on a particular goal or area and with a limited number of “seats” for each working are a great compromise between big workings open to any number of folks (inexpensive but with little customization available) and hiring a worker to do 100% custom, private services just for you (completely tailored to you but often considerably more expensive since the cost of time and materia magica are not being shared by more than one person).

Participants are invited to my client Discord server where they can ask questions, chat with me and other participants, and see photos of the work in progress. Joining the server is not mandatory, but a lot of clients like the option to have ongoing convos “backstage,” as it were, and in fact, some have been there continuously since I started offering community altar work services last year, and it’s actually become a little community – and everybody in it is really cool. No question-shaming or anything like that 🙂


Double rewards points now through midnight Central time on June 1. Find out more about the free rewards program here.

On Gender in Hermeticism: Analysis, Ranting, and Questions

I can think of at least a dozen conversations and easily twice as many lectures, rituals, or workshops, esp. from back in my “ceremonial” days, that I wish I could pop back in time to in order to deliver this kind of clue brick.

The Digital Ambler

Whew.  After giving that whole battery of citations from classical Hermetic literature yesterday, you might be tired, and I wouldn’t blame you.  Still, I should point out that amidst the many different texts that are extant, it was just those 15 that I could only really bring up in the topic of sex and gender within Hermeticism without getting into the more technical or scientific stuff that goes over the nitty-gritty of how biological reproduction actually works (which is getting outside the scope of gender and sex in general).  That’s all that there is, just 15 small excerpts, amounting to but a few pages among many hundreds that talk about everything else.  Suffice it to say that it’s just not a major topic within Hermeticism, but it’s still there even in some small way, and it would behoove us to get a better understanding of what’s there and what…

St. Lucy Chaplet Bracelet

This one of a kind chaplet bracelet is handmade with 5mm sapphire-blue glass beads, an ornate crucifix with a bronze-toned antiqued patina imported from Italy, a silver milagro imported from Mexico, and a holy medal of St. Lucy handpainted in bright and durable enamels. 

St. Lucy is petitioned for all kinds of things related to vision and light. She’s the patron saint of the blind and also of electricians, and her devotees call on her when they need to see more clearly, whether literally or figuratively. 

By extension, she’s considered a protector against the evil eye, can be called on to help you or someone you care about avoid the pitfalls of envy, and can be invoked for safe travel (fishermen in the Mediterranean have long painted eyes on the prows of their boats to help them navigate safely, and while this practice predates Christianity, it became associated with St. Lucy in many regions after her cult became enormously popular and widespread).

St. Lucy is an ally whenever you need clear insight or clear vision, and many folks working on their divination or clairvoyance skills will call on her as a patron of psychic vision as well (she and St. Clare of Assisi make a nice team for this purpose).

Pentecost Novena canceled

I let my frustration with my ISP reach blood-boiling proportions today as I found myself at the end of a busy week with a to-do list full of way-overdue things in large part because my internet never freakin’ works. (I still wasn’t caught up from the LAST time it crapped out and they took three weeks to come repair it.)

I’m kinda still there, really. But my point for the moment is that I’ve gotta cancel the Pentecost novena service – I’m not doing anybody any good when I’m this angry, I am absolutely fed up with fighting with the internet today, and I need to go outside and chop some wood for a while and try to get my perspective back 🙂

I’ll get an updated calendar out as soon as I can calm down enough to figure out how to do that with no internet 🙂

“Lucky Stars Sweet Jar” Community Altar Service: Jupiter in Pisces (May 13-May 31)

Work begins Thursday, May 13th, but this altar setting will be worked and available for the whole time Jupiter is in Pisces this go-round — about 2.5 months, until July 28th — so you absolutely can jump in late as long as you see slots still available.

This round or phase runs through the end of May, but you’ll have the option of booking/renewing/extending for the next round with no interruption a little closer to that date. My goal is to try to speak to everyone participating in the initial phase before the end of the month to work with them on articulating, identifying, imagining, obtaining, and/or creating their own very particular and very personal “lucky stars Jupiter good luck charm” that they can have going forward. This will be potentially quite time consuming work that I’m not being compensated for, so that’s why I want to bookend it with a definite cut-off date.

What’s This For?

So this is a great opportunity to sow some seeds now for what you’d like to see take flight in this realm next year when Jupiter spends most the year in Pisces. Jupiter’s at home in Pisces, so this is great big benevolent Jupiter energy – wisdom, the intuitive search for the truth, spirituality. We can get a booster shot of faith and optimism now that we’ve finally gotten shut of some Saturn energy that’s been weighing on us for a couple of years now. And Jupiter in Pisces is just plain lucky – an excellent “good luck charm” transit. What’s kind of rare here is that Neptune is also in Pisces at this time, and together, Jupiter and Neptune co-rule that sign. Jupiter’s urge towards expansiveness and Neptune’s urge towards larger social and mystical vision can combine for some crazy big magical opportunities, especially those related to Neptune’s wheelhouse.


You don’t apply for certain types of jobs because (fill in your demographic) never gets those jobs? *This is when you should flout the odds and apply anyway.* Nobody in your family has a lick of psychic ability and you’ve always thought your tarot cards might be deliberately messing with you? *Time to call them on it and figure out what’s going on.* Found your dream home but your annual income is missing a few zeroes you’re sure you’d need to get financing? *They just might overlook that strictly by the book stuff this time* – might as well ask Jupiter to send a little of that expansive benevolence your way.

If there’s some burden or limitation or restriction you’ve always thought you’d never get out of from under, you’d never get ahead of, this is the time to suspend that cynicism or resignation and see what’s possible, see if you can get some leverage or hint of fresh air in the next couple of months that  might change your perspective and give you an enlarged sense of what might be possible in 2022.

Pay What You Can

Because Saturn and COVID both have been kinda breathing down our necks and trying to crowd everything else out of our spaces for a while now, I’m offering this as a pay what you can service.

If you can pay the regular rate, great! If things are finally looking up for you and you can afford to pay the extra donation rate, or you want to make a donation to fulfill a vow of offering to a saint or spirit, that donation rate helps offset some of the costs I’m absorbing otherwise.

But if not, no worries – if you or someone you know needs a booster shot of Jupiter luck and abundance but money’s tight, it’s fine to book the reduced rate option – that’s what it’s there for. As long as I have a solid handful of participants and I can at least break even on materials used/consumed in performing the work, I don’t mind donating some of my time to help folks who are in a tight spot and need some help. 

How It Works


This service will be conducted somewhat like a honey jar, though the container will be containing other things specific to these planetary energies. But much like a honey jar, your petition and any personal concerns you send (e.g. photos, documents) will be added to the jar and the jar worked on a very specific schedule for the entirety of the time period covered by the service.

Once I’ve got everything set up, I’ll send out a notification email that will contain an invitation to the client Discord server if you’d like to join. That’s where in-progress photos and discussion can happen. (I don’t discuss workings in progress or send updates on an individual basis to participants in community altar work, but I will join a conversation or answer questions that are posed on the client Discord server.)

You’ll also get a link to my client calendar. It will show you key dates and times that you might choose to take advantage of on your own, as well. For instance, you might want to time a spiritual bath to coincide with a planetary day/hour or astrological event. I will occasionally make suggestions for things like this, too.

If you want to book on behalf of a friend or loved one, that’s fine for this type of work, even if they don’t know about it.


I will set the first light on the prepared jar on the evening of Thursday, May 13th, so it’s ideal to get your petition in before then. However, there is plenty of wiggle room and you *can* join up after the work starts.

May community honey jar services start tonight (with a PWYC option)

Sorry to get this reminder out so late, but it’s been raining heavily again, and rain at Seraphin Station usually means no reliable internet at Seraphin Station, sigh…

Anyway, as usual, I’m doing one honey jar for issues related to relationships (and they don’t have to be romantic relationships) and another for prosperity/career/income. Since COVID has brought such massive change and instability to so many people’s lives and and income situations, I’ve been offering the prosperity honey jar as a pay-what-you-can service.

Work starts tonight, the 12th, but there is a little wiggle room and you can join up late as long as you still see spots available.

A participant recently shared a review of the service:

Unique and Helpful Service

I have been taking part in the Community Prosperity Jar for a few months now and have really enjoyed the experience. I really like the community aspect of it because it’s not just community as in a group of people sharing one honey jar, but a community on Discord as well. I’ve learned some things I wouldn’t have otherwise that have been really useful in terms of my magical education and enjoyed the interaction with the group. The jar itself has been really helpful in gradually opening up a difficult situation where I had an extremely unsupportive and uncommunicative academic advisor. I now have a new advisor and a new committee member who are both available and supportive. This was a situation I had been struggling with for a long time so it was amazing to have some people finally want to support me in my work after I’d been getting the cold shoulder from my advisor for years.

*Please note I have decided to restrict the Ascension Day blessing and cleansing rite you see on the calendar to existing clients only. That way I can focus on getting caught up after several back-to-back time-sucking internet service disruptions. If you are an existing client who wants to participate, hit me up on the Discord server before dawn my time (which is about 6 a.m.)

I will have the other services up shortly – it’s just taking me forever to do it via phone :/

Readers/Readings

Big Lucky Hoodoo

As I’ve mentioned a few times lately, I’ve been kinda running around like a chicken with my head cut off these days and I’m definitely not the fastest with readings and altar work reports at the moment.

If you’re in the market for a reading and don’t want to wait on my slow ass, I’ve got two recommendations for you today.

The first is my cousin Lindsey on the Louisiana Creole side of the family. Young but no fool, she’s insightful and sensitive, and she’s doing donation-based readings right now. Contact her through her Facebook.

She can also look at your astrological transits – a service I offered with readings once upon a time way back in the day but no longer offer because it makes readings take three times longer than they already do, in part because astrology induces brain fog in me. Unlike me, Lindsey actually *likes* and…
