While it’s popular to use tarot or oracle cards (and you definitely can still use them to divine as a rootworker), reading a simple deck of playing cards is a traditional hoodoo divination method. Since many tarot and oracle decks are also quite expensive, so it’s also a very nice and affordable alternative. This is a quick reference and guide to reading playing cards as a way to determine whether and when to work the roots or for simply communicating with your ancestors and guides.

Why is this content protected?

The internet has become an incredible platform for sharing about rootwork and helping our community connect with each other to reclaim our heritage in these traditions. Unfortunately, publicly posting also opens up a whole world of possibilities for cultural appropriation, spreading misinformation, and other issues…

For all these reasons, the Library is only accessible to those who have an approved Library account in order to keep all the content in the hands of those who truly can practice hoodoo. Only people of African descent have the ancestral link to rootworking traditions that is necessary to practice them.
