Hello, I’m JayDee, a reader and rootworker from Michigan. I am passionate about helping others in their life to find their purpose, guiding them in troubled times, and encouraging them in times of need. I believe that in magical work it’s important to be compassionate and understanding, someone that actively listens to their client and their needs, and spiritually and ethically assess the work that is needed to assist them.
I was raised in a Catholic family in New York City where I was taught in the folk tradition of my ancestors. I received my first tarot deck at 16 and started learning how to read the cards. It was around this time that my interest in learning more about Astrology and Folk Magic really took hold. I learned as much as I could from my family and community members on the subjects. Some of these individuals taught me folk traditions vastly different than my own heritage, enriching my understanding and growth. I moved to Michigan as a teen and attended secondary school in the state. As I continued to study and research magical traditions I was introduced to Hoodoo and found many parallels to the types of workings I grew up with, such as cleansings, prayers, and methods of working with herbs and candles. I was fortunate to live in a diverse community where I was able to be immersed in a variety of magical sources including Arabic, Jewish, and African American influences. In 2008 I became an active member of the Lucky Mojo Forum, then took Miss Catherine Yronwode’s Hoodoo Rootwork Correspondence Course and became an active forum moderator where I regularly reply to questions from the public and provide magical coaching and spell-casting advice.
I have strong working relationships with many Catholic Saints, with whom I grew up venerating, and learned about more through my training in Hoodoo. I primarily use the tarot for readings, along with a pendulum and the assistance of my spirit guides. As a clairvoyant, I often hear or feel something that relates to the client’s needs. I have very strong relationships with St. Anthony, St. Joseph, St. Expedite, and St. Michael, among other spirit guides who assist me in my work.
In rootwork I offer services for a variety of needs based on the client’s reading, I believe that work must be justified to conduct it. Areas that I have a large focus on based on clients’ needs include reconciliation, success work, and general love work. I work with a variety of spell types for my clients to address the holistic need of the situation. The work may include spiritual baths to cleanse, lighting fixed condition candles based on a client’s desire, figural candles worked on an altar for love work, break up, money drawing, and healing. I’ve also prepared vinegar and break-up jars, burned with seven chime candles, to break up a relationship or sour people as well as honey jars to sweeten people as lovers or to bring favor and foster kind relationships. I regularly create mojo bags, attuned to the client’s needs, filled with curios, roots, and herbs known to assist in specific areas such as love, luck, success, and health.
