Hoodoo Barter and Swap

If you are interested in Hoodoo AND bartering and swapping, the new Hoodoo Barter And Swap group might be for you. It’s a new Facebook group. If you are interested here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/HoodooBarter/

I am on there offering tarot readings and spirit bowls; there are others who barter altar work, supplies, candles you name it.  And everyone on there is a hoodoo practitioner.

Hoodoo And Tarot

Divination is an integral part of hoodoo, during all the stages of a hoodoo working. From deciding whether a working is justified, to seeing how the working is going, and finally resolving whether the working is done or not, divination places an important role.

All practitioners will have a favorite method. They can include playing cards, tarot cards, pendulum, cowry shells, or throwing the bones.  I personally use tarot.

My favorite tarot spread for determining a yes-no answer is Mary  Greer’s 8 card Yes No Spread. It will not only tell you yes, no or maybe, it can give important clues as to why something might be a yes, no or maybe.  Here is a link to it: http://marygreer.wordpress.com/2008/06/02/yes-no-advice-oracle/

Another handy spread is Carolina Dean’s Spell Checker.  This spread was designed to determine if a spell or working is justified or not.  http://www.carolinadean.com/tarotspreads.htm

As a tarot reader, I have strong preferences on the kinds of questions I get.  I prefer open ended questions that are more spiritual in nature rather than literal or mundane.  As an example, a mundane question might be “Should I buy Car A or Car B?” A more spiritual question might be, “What are the pros and cons of purchasing a car right now?”
