The least wintery Winter we've had in many years is now a thing of the past and Spring is here in full dynamic force. The Robins are singing and the grass is growing, and the daffodils and plums are all in bloom.


More, More, More!: 


If you thought last month was a fluke, you're in for a surprise -- the Art Department scores again with four incredible new labels for long-popular Lucky Mojo conjure supplies whose formula-lines had been hiding under what we in the shop call "the generic Lucky Mojo label" (our brand-logo, plus a piece of block-type with the name).


Our old-style, hand-made, faith-based products deserve the most beautiful vintage-style packaging possible -- and it brings us great pleasure to create spiritual goods that are also beautiful enough to buy "just for the labels" -- as small, collectible art objects! Imagine these wonderful, tiny works of art being auctioned off for fabulous sums on Ebay 50 years from now! Stranger things have happened!




Introducing FOLLOW ME GIRL! This new label graces our line of Follow Me Girl Oil, Follow Me Girl Bath Crystals, Follow Me Girl Incense Powders, and Follow Me Girl Sachet Powders.

Of all the Lucky Mojo products that have endured the "generic label" burden, FOLLOW ME GIRL is the for which we have most often received requests for "real art." This is due, of course, to the enormous popularity of the FOLLOW ME BOY product-line, with its wonderful scent, well-respected authenticity, word-of-mouth reputation for getting results, and classic 1940s-look label art.

"Follow Me Boy has such a sweet label, so how come Follow Me Girl looks like ... nothing?" That's a question that customers, shop staff, and even the co-owners of the Lucky Mojo have asked one another for 15 years. Well, that question has now gone into the dustbin of history! Look what the Art Department brought us! Is this cool or what?

We probably don't have to tell you what Follow Me Girl products are used for -- the NAME says it all -- but for folks who are looking to give a woman the old come-hither, we will say this: Smooth a little Follow Me Girl oil into your hair and see what happens. Dress love candles with it. Sprinkle the powder in her shoes to keep her coming to you, and lay a trail of it from her house to yours. Start real slow, treat her right, pray sincerely over your work in the spirit of hope, faith, and belief -- and with Heaven's blessings, she will follow you ... follow you wherever you may go ...




Introducing Jinx! This new label graces our line of Jinx Oil, Jinx Bath Crystals, Jinx Incense Powders, and Jinx Sachet Powders.

If you have been verbally cursed, have had Jinx powders dusted in your bed, have been "throwed after" (that is, had bad-luck herbs, sachet powders, or minerals thrown behind your back by their enemies after you passed by), have had your foot-tracks whipped with Jinx powders, have had black candles dressed with Jinx oil burned on your name, have had the the insoles of your shoes dusted with Jinx powders, or have been "dressed" or "poisoned" or "throwed for" with Jinx powders or oil secretly placed on your person -- well, buddy, you have been Jinxed!

Lucky Mojo brand Jinx crystal salts can be employed in the bath or laundry, or for performing a ritual floor wash, Jinx incense powders are handy for fumigating an area to be cursed, Jinx sachet powders find use in foot track magic and dusting clothing and bedding, and Jinx oil is excellent for dressing items that one's enemy might touch. The little Black Cats on the labels represent the powerful string of bad luck and trouble that you intend to put upon the persons whom you jinx.


Jinx Killer-Bath-Crystals-at-the-Lucky-Mojo-Curio-Company    


Introducing JINX KILLER! This new label graces our line of Jinx Killer Oil, Jinx Killer Bath Crystals, Jinx Killer Incense Powders, and Jinx Killer Sachet Powders

If you believe that someone has put the jinx on you or your loved ones, and especially if they have done so with contact work, such as through foot track magic with Jinx powders or Jinx oil, you are advised to "kill" the Jinx by laying down a line of Jinx Killer powders over the enemy's powders, or by washing away all signs of the Jinx with scrub water made up by dissolving Jinx Killer crystal salts into a bucket or basin of water and performing a ritual floor wash or pouring the liquid over the mess on the ground.




Introducing JEZEBEL! This new label graces our line of Jezebel Oil, Jezebel Bath Crystals, Jezebel Incense Powders, and Jezebel Sachet Powders.

The cautionary Bible tale of proud, reckless, immoral, and egoistic Queen Jezebel caused her to be associated with idolatry and false prophecies and also with indulgence in fine clothing and excessive cosmetics as a form of sexual falsity. By the early 20th century, the term "Jezebel" had come to mean a fallen or abandoned woman, an ungodly woman masquerading as a church-goer, a promiscuous woman, or a controlling woman who used her beauty and charm to deceive, manipulate, and seduce men into idolatry and sexual immorality.

So why is there a line of hoodoo spiritual supplies named after wicked Queen Jezebel? Well, just as some have condemned her, others have come to praise and glorify her queenly ambitions and her complete freedom of expression in matters of philosophy, religion, morality, and sexuality.

During the same era that the term "a painted Jezebel" began to be applied with condemnation to street-walkers, call-girls, and escorts, the community of prostitutes took up her banner. Reclaiming her name with pride, sex workers bathe in Jezebel bath crystals, dust the insoles of their shoes with Jezebel sachet powders, perform candle magic with penis candles and vulva candles dressed with their sexual fluids and Jezebel oil to attract clients, and suffumigate their premises with Jezebel incense powders.


The Tarot Reader's Secret:

Did you know that the Rider-Waite Mini-Tarot Card deck, which is only 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" in size, will fit nicely inside a fabulously retro Chimes Ginger Chews tin (minus the Little White Book)?

Well, now you know!

So why, you ask, is this important?

If you'll gather 'round me, children, i will tell you the Old Tarot Card Reader's Secret:


As a long-time telephone psychic, i know that some of my clients find it difficult to visualize the cards as i read and describe them, and i also know that some of my clients are trying to learn to read the cards themselves by getting readings from professionals such as me - so i have figured out a way to bring joy and knowledge to both types of clients. This secret, which i have kept in my bosom for many years, is now ready to be shared with the world:


I tell my clients that if they want to see the reading develop as we talk, they should purchase a Rider-Waite Mini-Tarot deck and a tin of Chimes Ginger Chews. They can then eat the Ginger Chews and place the tarot cards in the tin (minus the Little White Book). This makes a convenient and unobtrusive purse-sized box for tarot-on-the-go.


My Ginger Chew clients conveniently schedule their readings during lunch hours, follow their readings by laying out their own mini-cards along with me - and then finish their sessions by snapping pictures on their cell phones to make permanent records of the readings!




Order the Rider-Waite Miniature Tarot and any of these fine varieties of Chimes Ginger Chews, each in its own unique retro-style tin:

DIV-TAR-RWMI Rider Waite Smith Tarot, Miniature ...

PHA-CTM-GINC Chimes Ginger Chews Original ...

PHA-CTM-GINM Chimes Ginger-Mango Chews ...

PHA-CTM-GINO Chimes Ginger-Orange Chews ...

PHA-CTM-GINP Chimes Ginger-Peppermint Chews ...

What's that you say? You don't like Ginger Chews?

Well, we have a special plan, just for you. Purchase the Rider-Waite Mini-Tarot cards and the Ginger Chews tin and instruct us to EAT THE GINGER CHEWS FOR YOU.

That's right: I, catherine yronwode, co-owner of the Lucky Mojo Curio Company, will personally EAT YOUR UNWANTED CHIMES GINGER CHEWS and send you the EMPTY TIN in mint condition, ready for you to insert your Rider-Waite Mini-Tarot deck (minus the Little White Book). There is no extra cost for this service! That's because Ginger Chews Eating is ALWAYS FREE at the Lucky Mojo Curio Company!



Plan Now for the May Workshops: 


Every year our neighborly church, Missionary Independent Spiritual Church, sponsors a two-day festival of conjure workshops and a potluck party open to the public. Lucky Mojo contributes to the festivities with an Open House and lots of volunteer help by our experienced staff members.
We will begin PRE-REGISTRATION for these classes during the month of MARCH. We will offer the option of pre-payment by Paypal. We encourage folks to sign up soon, as some of these classes will have limited enrollment.

And for the Graduates of the HRCC: 

APRIL 30th through MAY 4th:


The Lucky Mojo Apprenticeship Program is a FREE three-week series of lectures, personal training, and hands-on guidance in the history, preparation, and use of conjure supplies. This is your chance to meet other graduates, hang out in a real hoodoo shop, work with your hands, and receive true training in the background, history, and actual work of conjure.   



The Apprenticeship Program consists of nine lecture classes of 3 - 4 hours each, plus nine hands-on training sessions of 3 - 5 hours each, organized into three one-week training sessions.

      Week One: Herbs, Candles, Special Waters  

      Week Two: Oils; Incenses; Mojo Hands  

      Week Three: Baths; Sachets; Jack Balls 

Apprentices need not take the three weeks of sessions in order. The Apprenticeship Program is open to all graduates of catherine yronwode's Hoodoo Rootwork Correspondence Course.    


   Upcoming Apprenticeship Week  


April 30 - May 6, 2012 - Week One Apprenticeship:  

 Monday: Herb Lecture, Identifying and Harvesting Herbs
Tuesday: Harvesting, Dehydrating, and Packing Herbs
Wednesday: Candle Lecture; Dressing Candles
Thursday: Labelling, Dressing, and Fixing Candles
Friday: Special Waters Lecture, Making Specials

Two party meals are supplied during the week and attendance is requested: a Potluck Lunch catered by the Lucky Mojo Staff and an Apprentices Dinner catered by Sister Robin Petersen.

There is NO COST for Apprenticeship training because it is conducted strictly on the basis of labour-for-labour trade. Over the course of a five day Apprenticeship Week, Apprentices receive about 20 hours of lectures and hands-on training and in turn they perform about 20 hours of work for the shop. If you cannot sit or stand for a 40-hour work-week, you should NOT attempt to attend this apprenticeship.  


To join in the Apprenticeship Program you must be a Graduate in good standing of my Hoodoo Rootwork Correspondence Course. Non-graduates are eligible for Apprenticeship training if they bring all of their Homework with them when they come.  


Any Graduate may take the Apprenticeship training, but it is especially recommended for those who wish to go on to work for clients or who want to start their own occult shop and would like to know what the work is actually like.   


Apprentices are required to sign a non-disclosure agreement, to provide their own room and board, and to attend all 40 hours of studying, learning, and making spiritual supplies.

Upon finishing all three weeks of Apprenticeship, a certificate is issued at no cost, signifying that the training was completed.  

Space in the Apprenticeship Program is limited.

If you want to attend the May 2012 Apprenticeship, Week One, email Sister Robin Petersen NOW at or telephone her at the shop  -- 707-887-1521 -- Tuesday through Saturday, 9 to 5 PST.
