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.

Tea Lights: What good are they in hoodoo, anyway?

Tea Lights: Cheap, Inexpensive and Appealing to the Frugal

Tea Lights: What good are they in hoodoo, anyway? They are so tiny, so small, and they burn so quickly. How on earth can they be any good for a hoodoo working?

A friend on my Hoodoo Arts forum asked me, “In your experience, have tea lights worked for you? I have a few of them but merely thought of them as teaser spells.”

Yes, they are kind of teaser. They are too small and burn too quick to be of any huge lasting effect. They are cheap, small, and a dime a dozen. Which, of course, makes them VERY attractive to the frugal minded.

I know they are indeed a kind of teaser, but I think they can be potent if you have a lot of people lighting them. This is where the power is: in numbers. In other words : lots of people = small candle = big working. But for me personally on my own — no.  Just one person lighting a single tea light is probably very small potatoes magic. This is why you need lots of people burning tea lights and why churches will give out tea lights to put on mass altars. In this case, it’s quantity, not quality.  Tea lights are GREAT for mass workings because they fit the concept of small effort + large number of people = big effect.

My friend’s thoughts are: “(I) think this boils down to intent again but it is well known that despite strong intent, once the tea light goes out, the working is considered done. With offertory and 7 day vigils, the work goes a lot longer. Energy and focus is key but a small firecracker that goes pop and one that goes boom, makes quite the difference.”

Another friend on my Hoodoo Arts forum commented in favor of tea lights: “I find tea lights work terrifically…I’ve even gotten requests at work and drawn pics of lit candles on post its, written the person’s name across it and used that as a focus. The lights are a focus point…the real  energy comes from the practitioner knowing how to use the point to focus and send energy. I have found that its not necessarily about what you use, rather how you use it. You can kick just as much ass with a piece if paper and pen as you can with a ton of candles, oils herbs and other things (not that those things aren’t cool and effective)….You can always “program” it for sustained release. You light the candle to start but the focused energy that has been imparted continue until the situation has resolved, the universe says “nope..not this time”, or whatever time frame you decide. It’s more than intent. You have to manipulate the energy. You can have the best intent but if you can’t control the energies you’re not going to get results no matter what you use.”

The use of post it notes is, in my mind, an interesting variation on candle working. If it works for her, she should continue doing that, but I personally am in favor of the actual flame, the actual candle, herbs and oils, etc. The debate pm whether “intent” trumps all is a worthy argument. I personally am on the side of “it takes more than just intent — ya gotta do the work too.” I personally am more on the side of “put some time, money, effort, materials, etc” into your working.  Not saying you have to break your bank at all. Because, for example, I am the queen of grocery store hoodoo — stuff from your local supermarket works just as good if not better than the stuff you buy at high end metaphysical stores.

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.
