St. Cajetan Job Seeking Candle Spell

St Cajetan is the patron saint of job seekers.

Saint Cajetan is regarded as the Patron Saint of the job hunter and the unemployed. This spell calls upon Saint Cajetan who is eager to help you find a job or a better paying job. If you are tired of your present job and looking for a better one, or if you are currently unemployed, appeal to Saint Cajetan, who will aid you in your quest for a better position or career.

Mix in a bowl:
–1/2 tsp of each herb. Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Fenugreek seed, & Basil
2 oz green olive oil.

Bless the oil in the Name of the Holy Trinity.

You will need three new Green candles. Dress each one with the oil/herb mixture from bottom to top. You will arrange the candles in a triangle on your altar. On the top candle, inscribe “good paying job” and on the two bottom candles write the Success Symbol

Write a petition paper on a piece of brown torn paper grocery store bag. Write on a piece of paper what you would like in terms of a good paying job. Be specific. Write the city and state where you want the job. At the end of the petition paper, write out Psalm 118: 25: “Save now, we beseech thee, O Jehovah: O Jehovah, we beseech thee, send now prosperity.” Fold the paper and place it under the top candle. Place a dollar bill underneath the bottom left candle; on the bottom right candle place a W-2 form with your name and social security number on it.

Light the candles every day for seven days. When you light them, pray to St. Cajetan, the patron saint of job seekers. Offerings to St Cajetan would include bread and wildflowers.

Glorious Saint Cajetan, acclaimed by
all people to be the father of providence
because you provide miraculous aid to
all in need, I stand here before you today,
asking that you present to the Lord our God
the requests that I confidently deposit
in your hands today.
May these graces that I now request
help me to always seek the Kingdom
of God and his Righteousness,
knowing that God — who dresses with
beauty the flowers of the field and
abundantly feeds the birds of the
sky — will give me all other
things. Amen.

On the seventh day, light the candles and pray “Thank you Saint Cajetan for working on my behalf for a better paying job!” Keep the faith and continue to pray to Saint Cajetan as he will answer your prayers in his own time!

Dispose of the spell remains in an unobtrusive spot at a bank. When leaving, do not look back at the spell remains.

Green Candle Money Spell

On a torn piece of brown paper bag (like from the grocery store), take a pencil and write how much money you need and why you need it. Draw a circle around the amount and then write your name around the circle, continuously, without lifting your pencil off the paper.

Next take Money Drawing Oil and dress the paper in a 5 spot pattern. Placing four dots on the circle and then connecting the dots in a counterclockwise direction starting at the dot in the north and ending at the dot in the north is very effective.
Pray over the paper asking for God’s favor. You can use Psalm 23

The paper is now folded in half, folding towards you. Fold it in half again and again fold it towards you. Carry it with you all day. Feel free to touch, reread (out loud is best, but in your had is fine), and pray over the paper throughout the day. When you fold it up just remember to fold towards you.

Green Candle

That night open the paper up and reread it. Place it below a green candle dressed with Money Drawing Oil. When you dress the green candle, rub the oil upward from the bottom of the candle to the top of the candle

Pray over the paper and candle. You can use Psalm 23 or Psalm 4

 Pinch out the candle and repeat for seven or nine nights. On the last night, burn your petition.

Trinka 5 Money Spell

A visual representation of the Trinka 5 Money Spell.

Place a small bowl in a place you will see everyday.
Hold 3 coins in your dominant hand and say “Trinka five, trinka five ancient spirits come alive, money grow and money thrive, spirits of the trinka five.”
Toss the coins in the bowl and repeat the spell for nine days then continue doing so once a week until you have the money you need.

I added the rectangle so that when you print out the picture, you can write in the name of the person (either yours or someone else’s) who needs the money. The blue of the cup represents the water. When you set up your altar, place this picture on it along with the actual items needed and perform the spell.  Alternatively, you could take a printout of the picture and carry it around in your purse or briefcase or pocket. Happy Prosperity!

Law Keep Away (Law Stay Away)

Recently, I had a member of my forum ask about protecting herself from a visit from the police over an uncollected debt. She wondered what could be done to keep them away from her house.  This is what I recommended that she do.

Make a Law Keep Away Mojo with fennel, oregano, cascara sagrada and an Indian Head cent. Dress with Law Keep Away Oil and smoke it with tobacco smoke. Pray over it and then blow your breath into it.

“God protects me, no harm can come to me. G
od shields me from evil, black magic, evil entities, and all forms of evil. My shield cannot be broken by any evil force only love, good luck, and blessing can enter this shield showering me with blessings. God shield me so that the police cannot come anywhere near me. God shields me from the police, law, and legal problems. They cannot come anywhere near me and Archangel Michael protects me from every direction”

Keep this mojo bag with you at all times. Even sleep with it under your pillow.

For your home, you can bury 4 pennies, face up, at the four corners of your property; or nail 9 pennies, face out, over your door. Prior to doing that, though, dress the pennies with Law Keep Away Oil and pray a protective prayer over them.  Dress your door with Law Keep Away oil. You will want to feed your mojo at least once a week and dress your door at least once a week.

However, like with any hoodoo working, it’s best to do all the regular real world protections too.  Do what you need to do to keep the police away by hiring a lawyer if you need to, or seeing the appropriate governmental agency.  Don’t just sit there, don’t be passive about it. Get your ass in gear! :) What do you need to do to prevent the law from coming after you?

A Hoodoo Communication Spell

Use this spell when you need messages, communication, news, or some other kind of information sent from one person to another. It can be adapted to your particular situation quite easily. Think of it as your own personal “hoodoo smoke signal” kind of spell.

• Wax paper
• Masking tape
• 1 or 2 candles — color selected to reflect your intention
• 1 ordinary white candle
• powdered tobacco (snuff); if unavailable, grind up some shredded tobacco into as fine of a powder as  you can get it
• deer’s tongue herb
• target’s personal concerns or photo or name paper
• Tobacco Infusion Oil (see recipe below)
Loose tobacco
To Make Tobacco Infusion Oil:
2 oz. olive oil
1 tbs. loose tobacco
Gently simmer the tobacco in the olive oil until the tobacco is soft. Put into a jar and let cool.
Using tape, secure the wax paper to a clean, level surface. Now dress your candle with the tobacco infused oil, using the wax paper as the surface protecting your working area. As you are dressing your candle, focus your thoughts on what you want to happen — who you wish to communicate with whom. If you have personal concerns, like hair or nail clippings, poke some holes in the bottom of the candle and stick the personal concerns into the hole.
This part is optional: you may prick your finger and put a drop of blood on your candle, especially if you are hoping someone in particular will communicate with you.
Now it is time to light your candle! Place some loose tobacco in a fire proof dish and light it. Speak to the candle, as the tobacco smoke rises, instructing the candle as to what you want it to do. The smoke of the tobacco acts as a smoke signal, carrying your request to the Universe.
As for timing, it is best to do this at night when your target is asleep.  When people are asleep, it is easier to work magic on them because they are more vulnerable.


Blockbuster Candle Spell

One of my personal favorite workings in hoodoo is unblocking magic.  This (Blockbuster Candle Spell  is an easy but effective one. The purpose of a Blockbuster Spell is to get rid of the blocks and draw in abundance and success to you. Prior to doing a Blockbuster Spell, especially, if you are unsure what you should to or what blocks you have, you may wish to perform a Blockbuster Tarot Spread. Obstacles cross everyone’s path and must be overcome in order to live your life to the fullest. You may wish to consider these nine reasons you are being prevented from achieving your goals. The article will help you change your thinking and attitudes — which are powerful ways to break through any blocks to your ultimate success!

You will need for the Blockbuster Candle Spell
2 large, jumbo sized candles (1 black, 1 either orange or yellow)
4 oils — Banishing Oil, Van Van and Road Opener and some kind of attraction oil
a sharp object like a needle

For this particular spell, you may also choose to work with another oil that is known to draw in abundance, prosperity or success, like a Money Drawing Oil or Attraction Oil. For, mix equal parts of the Banishing, Van Van, and Road Opener oils.

To begin, to the black candle and carve all the things you wish to unblock.

On top of all the things you wish to unblock carve your name directly on top.

Dress the black candle with Blockbuster oil beginning at the middle of the candle and pushing the oil down to its base. This would be the time to visualize or pray, according to your beliefs!

Next, take a piece of brown paper bag and right down the things you would like to see prosper such as your love life, money, your business, your social life, etc. These are the blessings you want to bring into your life.

Fold this paper in half making sure you are making the fold towards you.

Turn it 90 degrees and fold it towards you again.

Take your orange or yellow candle and carve your name in it three times.

Dress the candle with a prosperity or attraction type oil, pulling the oil up the candle towards you and the wick.

You can personalize this spell as much as you want by placing items near the yellow (or orange) candle that reflect what you what such as flowers, money, a blank check, job applications, hearts, etc.

Set your candles side by side.

Under the yellow (or orange) candle, place your folded petition.

Light the black candle first.

Read Psalm 23.

Sit quietly for 15 minutes, meditating, visualizing, praying all your blocks away.

Wait 15 minutes before lighting the yellow (or orange) candle. Say as you light it, “Lord, [or your deity of choice] smoothen my path to my success by Your Holy Hand of Fire.”

When you light the yellow (or orange) candle, visualize and say thank you, one by one, to all the blessings you want to bring into your life.

Wait another 15 minutes before pinching the candles out.

Repeat this daily for 7 days. On the last day, let the candles burn until they go out on their own.

To Banish An Enemy

As anyone who works hoodoo, we know that an enemy can be out there, that some person  is possibly out to harm us in some way. It is important for all practitioners of magic to protect themselves from their enemies, and devise strategies to beat them. However, enemies consume time, attention, resources, well-being and happiness in life itself. So, the best thing to do is banish your enemy.

Normally, using a glass jar is traditional, but I have gone for a friendlier environmental impact by using either a toilet paper tube or paper towel tube, which will eventually compost/disintegrate naturally.

When the moon is in a waning phase, write on parchment paper (or whatever you have) the full name of the person you want to move, along with birth date if known.  Place hot peppers like jalapenos, cayenne, habaneros, Thai, or ghost.  Roll up the pepper inside the paper and then place the rolled up paper inside either a toilet paper tube or a paper towel tube, with a photo if you have one. Now pee on it. Really soak it in your pee! Pray Psalm 5:10 over it while peeing on it: “Declare them guilty, O God! Let their intrigues be their downfall. Banish them for their many sins, for they have rebelled against you.” (NIV). Toss into a river, visualize your enemy going far, far away as the bottle is washed away. As soon has you have thrown it into the river, turn around an walk away…do not look back.

How to Use Hoodoo to Find Your Soul Mate Part 3

Okay, so in Part 1 I talked about using the tarot to determine if a person was indeed your soul mate using this tarot spread

In Part 2, I described some of the different methods that hoodoo has of bringing love to you — plus three more tarot spreads. You DO have a soul mate — trust in that! There is a very special someone you are meant to share a great love with. If you haven’t found this person already, it’s likely you’re interested in meeting him or her.

Now you need to attract this soul mate into your life and for this, I have the following spell suggestion. In addition, you may find this article interesting:  Attract Your Soulmate — Ten Top  Ways

Attract Your Soul Mate to You Hoodoo Spell

Things You’ll need for the Spell:

Pink Candle

Come to Me Oil

Pink Construction Paper

saucer or plate

2 cups of sugar

rose petals or rose buds

1tbs damiana

1 tbs cinnamon

1 tbs catnip

  1. Cleanse and Consecrate the Candle with Florida Water and then Holy Water; dress the candle with Come to Me Oil. Mix the sugar with the herbs
  2. Cut  a Paper Doll out of the construction paper. Your paper doll can be as fancy or as simple of a cutout as you want it to be.  https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/20/8e/ff/208eff3c17c35387c23730b93ecd85f4.jpg
  3. Light your candle and do so consciously. Be aware that fire has an affinity with the spiritual realm.
  4. Write your wishes, desires and goals on the back of the paper doll. Be as specific as possible.
  5. Call upon St Raphael, the saint of happy encounters! “Raphael, Angel of Happy Meetings, lead me by the hand toward the one I am looking for. May all my movements and all their movements be guided by your Light and transfigured by your Joy.”
  6. Ask for what you want and need in a future mate. Be honest and open — but also be realistic. No one is perfect and the Universe cannot send you some ideal “perfect” person.
  7. Place the paper  doll on the plate or saucer and cover it with the sugar-herb mixture
  8. Stick the candle in the center of the sugar-herb mixture, speak your desires for a soulmate and build up as much energy in your heart as possible.
  9. Burn the candle for 13 minutes.
  10. Continue to ask for all that you wish for in a soulmate. Be honest and forthright. Be clear and operate only in harmony with the Universe
  11. Keep the dish with the sugar, paper doll, and any wax drippings.
  12. Repeat the next day for a total of 13 days
  13. After the 13 days, take the paper doll and put it in a safe place and keep it until your wishes, goals and desires have come true.
  14. When what you have called comes to you, be sure to thank both Divinity and St. Raphael for your good fortune.
  15. Return the paper doll to nature by either burning it, burying it or throwing it into a river, lake or the ocean.

Easy Freezer Binding Spell

This is a very easy and simple spell to stop someone from causing trouble for you. It doesn’t hurt them physically or emotionally, You will need a freezer, a zip lock bag, some water, a piece of paper and a pencil. If you know the person you are binding, a personal concern would add a huge amount of  oomph to your working but if you don’t know the person or you are unable to get a personal concern, don’t fret about it — you can make up for that in your petition paper. You can do this spell in the kitchen, you don’t need an altar, herbs, oils or any fancy “extras.”

Meditate for some time on the actions the person is taking that you wish to stop so that you can distill it into as concise a statement as possible. The meditation will also focus your energy and emotions into your working, which will make this whole process STRONGER! You may write one or two sentences, which will work just fine, but of course you may write as many sentences as you wish. As a suggestion, you could write this on the piece of paper with the pencil along with the persons name saying: “This slip of paper is (name), and his/her actions against me. I hereby freeze (name) and bind him/her from causing me harm. In the Name of the Holy Trinity the Father The Son and The Holy Ghost.” ” (If the person is not known to you, use this wording instead and omit the name on the piece of paper. “This slip of paper is the unknown one and their actions against me. I hereby freeze them and bind them from causing me harm.In the Name of the Holy Trinity the Father The Son and The Holy Ghost. ) Fold the paper *away from you* into a compact shape and place the paper in the baggie. Fill the baggie with enough water to submerge the paper.

Now I recommend saying this powerful binding prayer!

In the name of Jesus Christ,

and by the power of His Blood and His Cross

I bind all spirits in the air and the fire,

in the water and the ground,

in the underground and in the netherworld.

I bind all satanic forces in nature.

I bind all curses, hexes and spells,

witchcraft and occult activity that have been performed against me.

I bind the interaction and interplay of all spirits

And command all spiritual forces to go where they belong beneath the feet of Jesus .

I claim the protection of the shed Blood of Jesus Christ

I now call Michael the Archangel

and his army of angels to surround, fill and protect me and mine

I praise God for all of His heavenly angels.

I call them forth now and release them

to surround and fill me

with God’s power and blessings,

in the name of the Father, and the Son,

and the Holy Spirit.  Amen.

Now place the water filled baggie in the freezer and freeze it solid.

Keep the baggie in the freezer until the difficulty is resolved, then thaw and bury the paper in the earth, pouring the water on the ground and saying: “I release you from the binding, but you will never be able to harm me again for I am protected by the shed Blood of Jesus Christ.”
