June Community Spiritual Services; Bonus Rewards Points

Community Honey Jars

June community honey jars begin Monday, June 14th. There’s one for love/relationships and one for prosperity/income (which is Pay What You Can). I’ve set it up where you can book through Etsy, too, through the process is a bit clumsier and less straightforward there, sorry to say.

Planetary Work

Mercury Retrograde remediation and the Lucky Stars Sweet Jar for Jupiter in Pisces both have “rolling enrollment,” meaning you can join in at any time during the transit as long as you see spots still open, as I’ll be working some aspect or phase of these continuously.

St. Anthony of Padua 9-Day Service

St. Anthony’s feast day is June 13th, on which night I’ll commence a nine-day vigil, novena and chaplet service.

I’m not sure there’s anything St. Anthony has never been petitioned for by a devotee, but I imagine most petitions are still for finding lost things, up to and including lost people, which by extension results in his being tapped to return a wayward lover or reconcile a couple after a rough patch. He can deal with less literal stuff, too, e.g. if you feel like you’ve lost the plot or you cannot locate any more fucks to give.

Learn more about St. Anthony, including how he’s increasingly petitioned for love-drawing work these days, at my St. Anthony guide at Big Lucky Hoodoo. Or learn more about the service and book your spot now at SeraphinStation.com.

Community altar work services focus on a particular goal or area and have a limited number of “seats” for each working. They are a great compromise between big workings open to any number of folks (inexpensive but with little customization available) and hiring a worker to do 100% custom, private services just for you (completely tailored to you but often considerably more expensive since the costs of time and materia magica are not being shared by more than one person).


Also available: 3X bonus rewards points through midnight Central time on Friday, June 11th. The rewards program is free to join and pretty simple to use – read more here.

The bad news and the great news

Seraphin Station

The bad news is not news to anybody probably: I’m still not caught up from when I started getting underwater a couple of months ago when we got knocked offline for a while. It’s been one thing after another since then: several predator attacks and chicken deaths, water heater went out, oven went out, offline again for a few more days, car needed new engine, dog needed vet, Mike needed dentist (and caught himself a horrible case of poison ivy the same weekend), etc, etc.

And to be honest, it looks like that’s just what “normal” looks like around here, what with the whole crop-raising, herb-growing, livestock-having, wood-reclaiming, posthole-digging, predator-fending-off rural thing we’ve got going on.

Well, clients and potential customers will only be deferred for the wellbeing of a chicken so many times before the novelty wears off 🙂 and meanwhile I’m running around stressed out all the time…

May community honey jar services start tonight (with a PWYC option)

Seraphin Station

Sorry to get this reminder out so late, but it’s been raining heavily again, and rain at Seraphin Station usually means no reliable internet at Seraphin Station, sigh…

Anyway, as usual, I’m doing one honey jar for issues related to relationships (and they don’t have to be romantic relationships) and another for prosperity/career/income. Since COVID has brought such massive change and instability to so many people’s lives and and income situations, I’ve been offering the prosperity honey jar as a pay-what-you-can service.

Work starts tonight, the 12th, but there is a little wiggle room and you can join up late as long as you still see spots available.

Read more or book your spot at Seraphin Station.

*Please note I have decided to restrict the Ascension Day blessing and cleansing rite you see on the calendar to existing clients only. That way I can focus on getting caught…

From Thelema to Santa Muerte, with a foray into the current state of occult publishing and the invisibility of folk Catholics (among others)

Seraphin Station

From World Religions and Spirituality Project, here’s an interview with Manon Hedenborg White, author of The Eloquent Blood: The Goddess Babalon and the Construction of Femininities in Western Esotericism (Oxford University Press, 2020) and co-author with Fredrik Gregorius of “The Scythe and the Pentagram: Santa Muerte from Folk Catholicism to Occultism” (Religions 8:1, 2017). I think a few different segments of folks who wander by here might find this worth a look.


I had originally inteded to stop this blog post at the above.

But the Santa Muerte article in the journal Religions is open-source, available in PDF format from MDPI under a Creative Commons Attribution (CCBY) license. I read it, and I have some problems with it. Fair warning: the rest of what I say here is going to presume you’ve read it. I don’t have time to summarize it right now.

I have read Conjureman Ali’s…

Readers/Readings

As I’ve mentioned a few times lately, I’ve been kinda running around like a chicken with my head cut off these days and I’m definitely not the fastest with readings and altar work reports at the moment.

If you’re in the market for a reading and don’t want to wait on my slow ass, I’ve got two recommendations for you today.

The first is my cousin Lindsey on the Louisiana Creole side of the family. Young but no fool, she’s insightful and sensitive, and she’s doing donation-based readings right now. Contact her through her Facebook.

She can also look at your astrological transits – a service I offered with readings once upon a time way back in the day but no longer offer because it makes readings take three times longer than they already do, in part because astrology induces brain fog in me. Unlike me, Lindsey actually *likes* and is excited about astrology lol. In fact, she’s begun producing her own line of astrological archetype essences. Find out more about that at her Archetypal Essences page on Facebook.

The second is my friend Kat aka creepmouse on Instagram. She caters to “strange angels, mystics, madmen, sinners, saints and you, of course.” Currently doing Lenormand readings, but you can hit her up for details if you’re interested in Tarot.

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 servicebeginning on Monday, May 3rd,which serves as the feast day ofthis 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…

St. Joseph the Worker candle service (with free options) begins tonight

Seraphin Station

Have vigil lights set and worked on my St. Joseph altar in a nine-day community altar work service beginning on Saturday, May 1st, the feast day of St. Joseph the Worker. 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.”

I will begin a nine-day novena and chaplet recitation to St. Joseph on this same day, focused on petitioning his intercession for the unemployed, the underemployed, those whose income isunreliable or unpredictable, and those struggling to find dignity in their work. Your petition/intention will be included daily in my novena and chaplet work.

You do not have to book a spot in the vigil service in order to have your name and petition included in my 9 days of novena and chaplet prayers. You can simply submit your…

status update (or why my answer is always “you’ll get the report just as soon as it’s ready”)

I’m still not caught up from the backlog due to weather/~3 weeks offline. But I want to illustrate why all of my handling/turnaround times are estimates only and a service can take longer than expected. [1]

I just finished a reading that a client booked last month.

The typed reading was 7,000 words long.

If I were still a freelance editor or writer working in Times New Roman 12 point font with 1″ margins, that would be 14 single-spaced pages.

It wasn’t some special “next five years” or extended birthday reading. It was just a regular old Tarot reading. But it was an incredibly important issue for the client and a pretty complicated situation with a lot of moving parts connected in sometimes quite subtle ways. And the cards were really digging into some nooks and crannies. I had no idea it was going to end up being that long. But that’s where the reading went, so that’s where I went, and that’s how long it took.

And that’s how I work. You’re reserving your spot in line when you place an order. Just like every other client, you’ll get your report or your stuff when it’s your turn in the queue. And when it’s your turn, you’ll get my full personal attention, just like every other client, and that takes as long as it takes.

Every item and service listing explains that my handling/turnaround times are estimates only, as do the site Terms of Service and the FAQ, and they explain that I do not give play-by-plays or answer emails asking, “just checking to see when it will be ready.” If you’re asking that, you didn’t read the item details/TOS. So when I get to your “just checking” email in the queue, I’m gonna cancel your order and send you a refund if I haven’t started work on it yet, ’cause we aren’t gonna be a good fit to work together.

But I promise you, if you are waiting in the queue and your reading or service or reply or order is later than you expect, *I have a good damned reason.* And I assure you that when it’s your turn in the queue, you’ll get that same personal attention.

To those of you who are waiting patiently, I very much appreciate your understanding and I am not taking your patience for granted. I’m steadily working on getting caught up and I am very grateful for your patronage and trust. ❤


[1] This isn’t even touching on how long it takes me to make it through the various inboxes of all the various platforms and sites, and my God, there are a lot of them, and I have ADD and a farm to look after, and I need a virtual assistant. I’m not even kidding. Email resume and references to karmazain at gmail if you’re interested.

Balm of Gilead Community Candle Service – April 24th

Seraphin Station

Lights will be set at midnight on April 24th, though this is a vigil service and so there is wiggle room to get in after that time as long as you still see openings available.

I am seeing lots of celebration in various forums about the Pink! Supermoon! with a hefty focus on the positive. Not to be contrary for the sake of being contrary, but don’t let the pink nickname fool you. This is a pretty intense period with some intense astrological transits – Sun and moon both square Saturn in Aquarius, Sun conjunct Uranus on the 30th, Pluto’s about to go retrograde, and that’s not even half of it. All those big social upheaval transits of 2020? This wave is part of that storm, so to speak.

Whether we feel those tensions on a larger societal scale in the form of political or economic events or just…

St. Expedite Community Candle Service

Have a glass-encased vigil light fixed, dressed, blessed, set on my St. Expedite altar, and burned for you in a community altar work service for this famed and beloved patron saint of fast results.

Lights will be set the night of Monday, April 19th. 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.” The service fee covers the cost of your vigil candle and appropriate food, beverage, and flower offerings.

St. Expedite’s feast day is April 19th, and while you can petition him any day of the year, you might be able to get a little extra bang for your buck on his feast day. 

But beyond that, his feast day would be an excellent time to thank him for for previous services rendered if you already work with him but don’t have the time/space to do anything very elaborate with altars or offerings. Or if you are thinking about working with him and haven’t established a relationship yet, this would be a great opportunity to “introduce yourself.”

In addition to being the saint one petitions for fast results and luck in a hurry, St. Expedite is also the patron saint invoked against procrastination. He’s called on to help break through blockages and end delays, so his help is often sought for matters needing Road Opening and Blockbuster-type work. He’s also the patron of computer programmers. 

In some regions and traditions, he is also known as an ally for sending away annoying people or things in a hurry.

Please note that community altar work services do not come with individual readings/reports, though I will post at least one photo of the work to the Discord “forum,” which you’ll receive an invitation to after you book.
