Working
Conjure

A
Guide to Hoodoo Folk Magic

By
Hoodoo Sen Moise

Due
to the fact that, in all honesty, I say I know absolutely nothing
about Hoodoo, I was pleased to see that the first chapter was
entitled, “What is Conjure/Hoodoo?”

The
author explains the when, where, how and proceeds to tell us of
Hoodoo’s principles in chapter 2.

I
love the explanation of how

“Conjure
was birthed out of a need to overcome the

oppression
of slavery. It was a way for the slaves

to
turn the tide against the slave masters and take back,

at
least in some way, what had been taken from them.”

He
speaks lovingly about the ancestors, those who came before and laid
the foundation for all that has followed.

There
are a few chapters that discuss roots, plants and animals and how
each have their own spirit. He discusses the “spirit of a
place”, with a whole chapter on conjuring in graveyards.

“Conjure
is not a religion, but a tradition of work that

holds
strong ties with the Spirits, of the Root, God

and
the Ancestors.”

There,
too, were many quotes from the Bible that fit with this work.

Included
are many recipes for oils, powders, workings, and mojo hands.

Hoodoo
Sen Moise has written an informative, warm, loving book. His respect
and devotion comes through in every word. If Conjure is something
you have always wanted to learn about, this is the book to get you
started.
