It is sometimes said that in hoodoo, the root doctor’s intent is everything… but in many ways, so is one’s timing. Traditionally, there were many different practices around when to start and end a working, how long the working should be, and at what phase of the moon. Time of day, the number of days, the lunar phases, and the days of the week were all taken into consideration when working the roots.

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.
