Pinned post: re. Seraphin Station

Updates on items/shop stuff are usually posted to the Seraphin Station blog. So if you’re following this blog but not Seraphin Station, you could be missing news (and rambling) about spiritual supplies and tangibles. Big Lucky Hoodoo will continue to be rootwork-specific, and you can find my services here, but the *stuff* is at the Seraphin Station shop.

You can sign up for the shop mailing list to get a “welcome coupon,” plus I send out subscriber-only offers, advance access to cool stuff, and surveys that I weigh very seriously when I’m deciding what soap to make next or what kind of Rewards Program stuff to set up for y’all.  

I’m gradually updating/editing the existing resources and links here at Big Lucky Hoodoo and turning the old blog posts into actual articles.

She’s the patron saint of military servicemembers (especially female ones), prisoners, and people ridiculed for their faith. Her feast day is May 30th.

Contact and intake form update

Seraphin Station

I’ve fixed the problem with the contact and intake forms.

The contact form issue was resolved by going back to the old form and the old form host. Important: This means that the host we were using to exchange messages after your initial form submission *no longer works.* I still have the record of the convo, and I will contact you without going through that platform if I need to reply. If *you* need to reply and hitting “reply” doesn’t work, just send the email to support @ seraphinstation.com instead.

The intake form issue was resolved by getting rid of intake forms entirely. Now, when you want to book a service or need to provide customization info, you should see a form right there on the product or service page that you will fill out *before* checkout. This means fewer boxes to fill out, as well, since the whole thing…

Jesus Malverde Community Altar Service starts tonight

Seraphin Station

Have a vigil light set and worked on my Jesus Malverde altar in community altar work service beginning on Tuesday, May 3rd, which serves as the feast day of this folk saint. There is some wiggle room and you can join up after the work starts as long as you see that there are still spots left and it doesn’t say “sold out.”

Jesus Malverde, also known as the Angel of the Poor or the Generous Bandit, is afolk saint who is said to have lived and died inlate 19th/early 20th century Sinaloa, Mexico. His reputation as a sort of Robin Hood figure began before his death, as the legend has it; he targeted the rich, redistributed the money and goods he stole to the poor, and basically spent his life on the wrong side of the law but by all accounts on the right side of morality.

While many details of…

current clients – short fuse talisman

Seraphin Station

Over the next 35 minutes i’m making Venus talismans. Chime in at the Discord if you’re a current client and you have a preference for ritual oil or gemstone/shiny thing. I’ll make extra of each but if it leans heavily one way or another in the next few minutes, I can adjust fire a little during the rite.

If you don’t use Discord, just use the contact form at the website I guess.

Oh, and no I don’t have time to explain what it’s for but yes, you want one. Venus is conjunct Jupiter in Pisces only every 12 years.

(If you want one and you aren’t a current client, there might be some left, or you could go ahead and book something today and I’ll count you lol)

Pecan Cream Cheese Pound Cake: When St. Expedite Wants a Little Better Than Sara Lee

Tradition has it that St. Expedite loves his Sara Lee pound cake. Some devotees will even say he prefers it to homemade pound cake. I don’t know about all that. But I do know a few things.

One, you should try to be as specific as possible when working with St. Expedite.

Two, you should give him your agreed-upon offerings when you see specific movement congruent with your petition. You can’t always get *everything* you want all the time in a hurry – recognize that he did work for you and acknowledge what he was able to do. He’s not a surly teenager whose allowance needs withholding until he gets a work ethic and moves out of your basement. Give him his damn flowers.

Three, he is not gonna get mad if you give him a homemade pound cake instead of that tasteless, pale yellow brick of stuff you can buy at the gas station. Plus you can impress the currently-living and not-yet-sainted with this pound cake. This is a family recipe from my mother’s side of the family.

1 1/2 cups butter
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
3 cups sugar
6 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon almond extract
3 cups cake flour divided
1 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 325. Lightly grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan. In a large mixing bowl, mix cream cheese, butter, and sugar until fluffy (about 5 minutes). Add eggs one at a time, beating between each. Add vanilla and almond extracts. Mix. Reserve 1/4 cup flour; dredge pecans in it. Add remaining flour a little at a time, beating on low speed. Fold in pecans.

Pour batter into pan and bake 1 1/2 hours or until cake begins to come away from the sides of the pan. Let cool in pan before removing cake.

Feast of St. Expedite

St. Expedite’s feast day is the 19th of April, and I set lights and began work on his altar for the community altar work last night.

But there are still spots left if you’d like to jump in – you can find out more at Seraphin Station.

Saint of the Month Box

Finally, St. Expedite is the saint for this month’s Saint of the Month box.

Standard box includes, at a minimum, a bottle of oil, a candle, a holy card or mini prayer booklet, brief history and recommendations for working with the saint or spirit, and a charm, medal, or curio. 

Deluxe box includes, at a minimum, a bottle of oil, a fixed, blessed, dressed, and decorated vigil candle, a holy card or mini prayer booklet, brief history and recommendations for working with the saint or spirit, and a handmade chaplet, rosary, or necklace.
