On a Friday when the moon is in its waxing phase and the hour of the day or night is ruled by the planet Venus, place a lucky hand root (the root of an orchid plant) in a small jar filled with rose oil. Seal the jar with a lid, and then enchant it by thrice reciting the following magickal incantation: Waxing moon and Venus hour, Charge this root with mystic power.
Let it work without ado, And draw to me a love so true.
Allow the root to soak in the rose oil for seven consecutive days and nights. On the following Friday when the hour of the day or night is again ruled by Venus, take the lucky hand from the jar of oil and wear it, every day and night, close to your heart.
To ensure that the enchanted lucky hand root does not lose its magickal potency, be sure to anoint it with three drops of the rose oil every Friday during a Venus-ruled hour.
The lucky hand (which is also known as a hand of power, helping hand, and salap) is said to be ruled by Venus and sacred to the goddess after whom this planet is named. It is a popular root among practitioners of hoodoo folk magick in and around the city of New Orleans.
