The Truth About The Crossroads

A crossroad is any road where two roads cross. There is a lot of magic in a crossroads, it is said that the crossroads is a place without time. One thing is for stories about the crossroads. In rural towns in the South there are a lot of folks who want be caught at the crossroads at dark; even in this day and age. Many folks grew up on stories of the Black man who owns the crossroads; some even say he is the devil. This may sound like superstition to some but folks who have grown up on these tales believe them. I have read that you don’t have to go to a real crossroads to receive a gift. That you can draw a crossroads and it will have the same power; I find this impossible to believe. I use the symbol of the crossroads on my petition papers sometimes but I will never tell you that it can replace a real crossroads in power. I think that in order to ask a favor you must go to the crossroads.

There are some that say you have to go a certain amount of times or a certain day of the week to the crossroads. I think that this is a myth. I myself have felt the power of the crossroads when I went there for help with my writing skills. It was a calm clear night; and no I did not see the man but a breeze did pick up and I saw a mist in the center of the crossroads. I went one time with my writing tools. My writing most certainly  did improve; I now have {7} books written and a card reading kit that contains a deck of cards and a booklet on how to read them. Some say it is an old wives tale but I felt the power. Powerful Conjure work can be achieved at the crossroads. I petition the keeper of the crossroads often on behalf of myself and my clients.

A simple but effective way to do this is to collect a little dirt from each corner of the crossroads. Leave three pennies on each corner as payment for the dirt. Take the dirt back to your work space. Write your petition out and burn the petition to ash. Mix the ash with the dirt from the crossroads you collected. Dress a candle and sit it in the center of you dirt. Say your prayers and state your petition. Light the candle and let it burn all the way down; Once the candle has gone out gather up the dirt and any candle that is left. To this add three pennies. Go back to the crossroads and state your petition; throw everything in the center of the crossroads. Go home and KNOW that your petition will be answered.


  1. I have become deeply drawn to the crossroads and their magic. I cannot seem to get enough information about them. Thank you for this post. Can anyone provide any other sites or links about the legends of the crossroads and or their magic? Thanks, Debi

    1. Hi Debi, I think there is a large amount of info at the LM. Momma Starr

  2. Thanks for sharing this info. i am really drawn to the crossroads, but I live in the city and it is hard to find a crossroads that isn't bustling with traffic. I have read that you can make a crossroads in your backyard and use that. Is this true? Would it still be powerful? I am a caregiver to a very ill husband and it is extremely difficult for me to leave him alone to drive to far to a crossroads. Thanks for any help you can give me.
