Hoodoo is an old miner’s term for basically bad luck. I am not sure if it can be applied to all the full spectrum of magicks.
The mountains in the distance of this picture, and running off toward the right, east if you want the direction, are called the Hoodoo Mountains. There was lot old mining and logging that went on in that area in the past. Most of the garnets I have come from that area.
I think of the Hoodoos as a distant place up north somewhere, like I think of the Blue Mountains in the south somewhere. I have a whole bunch of pictures that come from the Hoodoo Mountain range. I have a lot of little memories that come from being in, or on the edge of those mountains.
I was exposed to hoodoo you might say.
