PostSubject: Voodoo Superstitions   Sun Sep 23, 2012 3:02 pm

I've once come across this website that contained many interesting superstitions associated with voodoo and its adherents/practitioners. I can't cite or give credit to anyone in particular, as these were listed randomly.

Quite an intriguing read.. Very Happy


- It is considered bad luck for the remainder of the week if a woman visits you first thing Monday morning.

- It is considered bad luck to borrow or lend salt.

- Sweeping trash out of the house after dark is said to sweep away all of your luck.

- Shaking a tablecloth after dark is said to be an auspicious superstition that sees a member of your family dying suddenly.

- A spider seen in the morning is a sign of grief; a spider seen at noon means joy; and a spider seen in the evening means hope.

- Voodoo belief said placing a dime under a person’s tongue could determine if someone was under a spell. If the dime turns black, the person is said to be under a spell.

- To send someone away, it is said that one must write a person’s name nine times on a rotten egg and then throw it against their door at midnight.

- A love powder is a half teaspoonful of sugar, teaspoonful of peppermint and a teaspoonful of grated candied orange peel. Administering a teaspoonful of this mixture in a glass of wine would cause that person to love you forever.

- It is said that if you boil a black cat until all the meat comes off, and then divide the bones along four corners of the road, the devil will appear.

- Grave dust is used by witches to hoodoo a person. In order to counter this curse, it is said to find grave dust and wear it.

and last but not least, my favourite:

- By turning the picture of a person upside you can cause that person to suffer a headache.

Thanks Jake,

I figured they weren't exactly superstitions, although the author listed them as so, but a mutual system of beliefs. I was also taught a varying set of old Slavic beliefs and rituals by my aunt and grandmother during my childhood, which had many references to ancient Slavic deities, but alas I don't fully remember most of them to date. No

Most, if not all, of these rituals and such were passed down by word-of-mouth, since written records from Pre-Christian Poland (supposedly) don't exist.
