My name is Joseph Thomas Magnuson. I am 34 years old, happily married, and currently living in San Francisco, California. I have been interested in all manner of spiritual/occult/magic learning and have lately been studying and working hard in said realms.
I have a dream and hope to build a candle service chapel in the near future. The thought of being able to help as many people as possible through prayer and work makes my heart sing! My wife and I are currently looking for a house and some land to purchase, which would allow me to build the chapel. This will take some time and patience, though…that’s where this blog comes in!
During these in-between days of saving and searching I need to keep myself busy and share random tidbits of wonder. I will also be utilizing this blog as a crossroads of sorts…a place I can share links, interviews, and stories with you the reader, all the while expanding my own knowledge and on-line family!
I have been studying rootwork and conjure, also known as hoodoo, for about three years now, with the last year taken up mainly with completing Miss catherine yronwode’s Hoodoo Rootwork Correspondence Course. Before that I had been studying and working folk and herb magic, as well as making my own incense and oils, for many years. I have been a casual candlelight worker in the past, but have been taken with it in force for the past two years. I would like to note, however, that this blog will be filled with ALL kinds of spiritual, magical, occult, and wonderful information and queries…from Hindu Deities to Tarot Cards to Satanic Panic to Loving Heart of Jesus the Christ and more and more and more. A non-denominational potpourri of exploration!
Expect more to come and often! Finding a community of like-minded people is such a rewarding experience and I hope you will join me for the journey!
Godspeed and Good Luck,
Joseph Magnuson, Caretaker
P.S. – I had to point out that today is 09/10/11, which I find a perfect omen to start my new venture into the world of blogging. Nothing like a once-in-a-lifetime date that is literally marching forward! Full steam ahead, everyone!
