PostSubject: Eggs in folk magick   Fri Sep 25, 2009 3:28 pm

This article I have wrote for another purpose but , all saidth basicly goes for Hoodoo too , I hope this will cover "Eggs in Hoodoo " topic Wink

Egg ( mainly chicken’s ) represented the very vital force in many cultures , since the ancient Egypt and even earlier . But some of the first spells using eggs can be found in recipes of heka magick.

However it seems that egg si most appreciated in folk ( lower ) magick , where its power is used in it’s full extent .

This is indeed a large and seemingly inexhaustible topic so I shall try my best to cover most important of it .

In Hoodoo

Many items in Hoodoo can be used for great good and great evil , like entities ( crossroads God for example ) , so can egg .
We can rub them all over our body, in order to absorb negativity ( best if it is a brown egg purchased on midday ), that are later thrown away into a stream , offhouse , or even on crossroads .
Black hen eggs are very much powerful in Folk craft so are in hoodoo . Used for cleansing and purification , and even for love . Also for crossing and hexing an enemy even to bring death . Sometimes in “harder work” spells it is required that egg be laid by a hen that has never laid eggs , or that is laid on particular day (maybe even a hour ).
Eggs can be also used to banish someone away in Hoodoo as in this example :

It is necessary to go to the place where the enemy gets his water-a pump or hydrant. In a rural area or his own sink elsewhere. Draw some of that water and as the sun rises throw the water as far away from you as possible. Then break an egg on the ground. In three days the person will leave town.
Obtain a rotten egg and write on it nine times the name of the person you want to send away.Also write where or how far away you want him to go. At midnight take it to the persons home and throw it against his door.

In Santeria

Pretty much same as in Hoodoo , just slightly more used . Also Santerio , or Santerias used them “parra ver si algien essta posseido” pr to detect evil or see whether someone is possessed .
It is said that in hands of talented Santeria practitioner egg is as deadly as a bomb in humans hands or a cure of a miraculous healer .
Here is a spell that they use to detect demonic possession

“Place an fresh new egg in bowl of Holy water and place under “patient’s” bad , making a sign of cross over it there times and saying prayers . Place a sprig of basil and some salt in it too . Let it remain undisturbed for three days then in a break of dawn take the bowl from under the bed and break the egg in a clean plate . If the person is possessed egg will be heavily rotten , blood may appear or even animals such as spiders , scorpions or even small snakes”

They also make a cleansing soap ( used in purification rites ) called Jabon de Huevos de Gallina Negra Para Limpias (Black Pullet Egg Soap for Cleansings) .

Slavic ( Balcanic craft )

Has numerous use of eggs . Maybe the most of all folk craft system’s . All uses that are listed in Hoodoo and Santeria , and also a few additional . like divination , truth spells est.
On the night of St.John ( known as Jovan in Balcanic countries ) , that is on the night before it a fresh new egg is broken into small plate with three spoons of Holy water , but only egg white . In the morning shapes will appear that are indeed a very important omen about future , and this practice is shown impeccable .
Slavic witches use eggs to heal ( like in Hoodoo , rubbing all over body ) or to kill , world famous “Slavic egg curse” , that shall inevitably cause the death of person , causing great variety of sickness with no medicinal cause . When the victim refers to doctor he notes the symptoms often very much intense with no medicinal cause . The curse can be removed by only one Slavic spell that invokes “Mama Pudri” ( Forest mother , the equivalent to the Wiccan Goddess ).
There is a belief that If You carry an black hens egg under Your armpit for nine days a small creatures shall be birth that shall obey you and be Your link to variety of powerful demons and make them do your biding .
Also burned with silver coin and basil spring under the new plant , on a waxing moon night shall bring prosperity as plant grows .
