Flannel “Law Keep Away” Charm vs. Busted Tail Light “Law Attracting” Charm

Pro tip: the drawing power of the Busted Tail Light Law Attracting Charm is generally stronger than the protection power of the flannel Law Keep Away charm.

If you’re going to bother with a Law Keep Away charm, slow your roll for a minute and make sure you’re not also carrying something that can negate or overpower it. In addition to the Busted Tail Light, that includes the following Law Attracting charms, amulets, and words of power:

  • the “Non-functional Tag Light” charm
  • the “IDK When to Shut My Mouth” chant
  • the “I Hang Out With Stupid MFers” talisman
  • the Subwoofer “Whole Neighborhood Needs to Hear My Favorite Jams” rite
  • the “Lead Foot” amulet
  • the “Too Loud For This Paper Sack” charm

Give your rootworkers and your folk saints a little bit to work with, y’all.

ETA: In response to a comment on FB where a reader said they were just thinking about checking all the lights on their older car, I responded:

In the military, we called it PMCS, preventative maintenance checks and services I think it stood for. (That’s been 20 years ago now so don’t quote me on that, but it was something like that.) And you had to do it every single time you checked out the keys to take a vehicle somewhere – go down the checklist, and turn in the checklist to get clearance to leave the lot with the vehicle.

It takes a few minutes, yes, but imnsho, anybody with an older vehicle should implement something similar and get in the habit of doing it *every single time they operate the vehicle,* as should anybody who:

– can’t find their insurance card

– can’t get their license renewed until next Tuesday or whatever

– has panic attacks when pulled over and thus immediately pings as looking guilty or acting weird to law enforcement

– travels with a dog who might be perceived as looking or acting threatening if they were to be pulled over

– is a member of a group who has historically been subject to targeting or profiling by law enforcement

– is giving a ride to someone they can’t be 7000% sure doesn’t have a stray forgotten anything in a jacket pocket

– just plain can’t afford the time to get pulled over

– is pretty bad about cleaning out their car and can’t be 7000% sure there’s nothing in it that might look weird to law enforcement

– has a warrant out for their arrest and hasn’t finished tidying up their business so they can go turn themselves in

– might have had even a speck of alcohol spilled on them wherever they’re leaving from

– has consumed even a speck of alcohol

– has any kind of criminal record

– etc etc etc.

Basically my point is there could be 100 very good reasons for you (generic you) to want to avoid interactions with law enforcement that don’t involve you actually intentionally committing a crime or being a criminal. I mean, who *likes* to get pulled over?? And so you really improve your odds of avoiding such interactions if you get in the habit of making sure your vehicle is 100% legal and road-safe Every Single Time. It takes a little time, but I think it’s time well invested!

internet

The storms have finally let up but we’re going on day three of no reliable internet. Since nearly every system I use is web- or cloud-based — postage/shipping, customer database, accounting, photo editing, social media management — everything is moving at the speed of molasses. But I’m doing what I can via phone. Hopefully the worst ISP in North America will come out and fix their Stone Age technology pretty soon and we’ll have the usual crappy DSL again… in the meantime, please don’t take it personally if I’m slow to answer or a bit taciturn 🙂

St. Cyprian Holy Saturday service

Chiron Armand, whom I’ve known since my AIRR days — so what’s that, 10 or 15 years now? — is one of those practitioners I can recommend without hesitation or caveat.

(I can also recommend ConjureMan Ali’s book, which I just recently got my hands on because I was living under a rock for a few years. When I first started keeping a “recommended reading” resource on this blog, the section on books in print had a grand total of two titles in it. *So much* has changed over the last 10 years. I have quite a few books I’ve gotten caught up on lately that I need to add to the Education Resources section.)

Upcoming Community Altar Work

Visit Seraphin Station to read more or to book your spot in the community altar work for the new moon, or for one of the two March honey jar services, for prosperity/success or for love/relationships.

Up next: St. Joseph service for work and family matters, St. Benedict service for removing crossed conditions and casting off evil.

When Angels Are Saints and Saints Are Angels

Seraphin Station

I very frequently see folks online say things like this: “Though technically speaking Archangel Michael is not a Saint [sic], sometimes this entity is venerated as one.”

I’m not linking to the source for that because my goal is not to single anyone out for being wrong. Thing is, this is not an uncommon misperception. It’s pretty easy to find multiple websites and blogs that say something to this effect – even those of folks who are otherwise pretty well-versed in folk religion and/or folk magic. If this were just a couple of blogs and not a pretty widespread point of confusion and error, I wouldn’t be going to the trouble to write about it.

I get that not everybody comes from a Catholic background. But if you’re going to write about saints in the context of hoodoo and folk religion, you should do your research before you make assertions…

Pay What You Can Community Honey Jar for February

Seraphin Station

I’m offering community honey jar altar work monthly, beginning after the new moon each month. One service is for matters relating to prosperity/career/income and one is for matters relating to love/relationships (they don’t have to be romantic relationships). February’s community altar work services start the night of Friday, February 12th. There is some wiggle room, however, and you *can* join up late.

Since the costs of the time and materials involved in this altar service are split between multiple participants, this is a way to get some altar work done at a fraction of the cost of booking separate, individual private work.

Because COVID sucks and is messing with people’s incomes and careers, I am offering the prosperity/career service as a Pay What You Can service. If you can afford to pay full price, great! But if you can’t, that’s ok, too – I’m doing this so people…

I just made a bunch of blessed salt and holy water. I use the old-school Roman Catholic rites,[*] which will give your rusty ecclesiastical Latin a serious workout.

I am really glad my old Latin teacher couldn’t overhear me do that.



[*] So technically exorcized, and then blessed, salt.

Chicken foot charms are back – and this batch is special

Seraphin Station

Good old chicken feet curios, a probably-New-World invention – at least in the painted, decorated iterations…

… that people nevertheless like to claim have been used in all kinds of magical traditions all over the globe for *centuries,* for everything from love to money to hexing the crap out of your roommate for leaving the toilet seat up.

(They’re used for protection, for the most part, though some pro workers use them in cleansing and healing rites as well. Not love or money, though, not that I’ve seen any evidence of – sorry.)

I’ve been making chicken foot charms for over 20 years now, but this batch is special.

I usually make them with commercially available chicken feet that come from the same source as the chicken you buy at the grocery store wrapped in plastic.

These are different. These come from a source I know firsthand to be cruelty-free…

-So then I keep the jar in a dark place, right?

-Sure.

-And when it’s all done, I need to dispose of the ritual remains.

-That’s it. You got it.

-And then I cleanse myself and my target.

-You– wait, what? Why in the everloving hell would you cleanse your target?

-I saw it on Pinterest.

-Oh for God’s sake.

OG Old Testament, y’all

In case you haven’t ever wandered by Hoodoo Foundry, Miss Michaele’s place, you’ll find lots of great stuff there, including many fine examples of good old-fashioned, totally scriptural prayer that might shake up your perspective if you’re one of those coming to hoodoo from a non-Christian background, or if you haven’t ever read the Bible in its entirety and tend to think of Christianity as being all about meekness and turning the other cheek, or even if you’ve just never really understood what the Bible has to do with any of this conjure stuff.

Here are a few recommendations:
