This is our old Good Luck altar, which is maintained in the Hounfo Racine Deesse Dereyale badji. It is covered with items related to luck and money, and it houses our lodestones. There is plenty of room to work the altar, which is constantly changing and as of 2016 looks nothing like this anymore.
The Kiwi Mojo Good Luck altar in its entirety.
You can see our lodestones, several candles and statues, charm bottles, money, and an Eleggua. (And a lot more!)
Eshu Laroye watches as a money drawing candle is burned atop a lucky red envelope, drawing money and good luck to the petitioner.
This big guy is dedicated to general luck matters. Luck in love, luck with money, luck in everything. He weighs approximately 14lbs, and has a very strong magnetic pull. He is surrounded by coins and lucky items, and is fed weekly with magnetic sand and oils.
A statue of the Aphrodite of Melos looks down over another lodestone, a piece of citrine, a money candle, a small Buddha and some green scapulars.
The lucky cat, or maneki neko, is a symbol of luck and prosperity from Japan. He beckons with his paw, calling the luck in. He sits in front of a lucky red envelope (used in Asian countries to give gifts of money), behind a green money pyramid candle.
Another view of the lucky cat. They are a favourite piece of imagery at Kiwi Mojo, and several of them make their homes around the house.
Another lucky cat sits in front of a lucky envelope, next to our big lodestone. Play money sits in front of the lodestone, and several charms and curios can be seen behind it.
You can see Eleggua in the background, behind three specially prepared condition oil blends. One for money has been used to dress the candle.
Can you spot: a Latin American charm bottle, a resin Buddha from Mexico, multiple lucky cats, a royal flush, Ganesh, and magnetic scotty dogs?
Can you spot: coins, scapulars, the Virgin Mary, St Anthony, St Jude, several lucky cats, fortunes from Zoltar and condition oils?
Working the petition inside the envelope. The envelope contains several condition powders and herbs, and the candle is dressed with money oil and coated in green glitter.
You can really see how big the lodestone is here. Two smaller lodestones also share the plate, these two are specifically for luck in love and love drawing. You can see them in the lower right, between the dice and the stone heart.
This one is a lot smaller than our huge lodestone, but still pretty big. It's about the size of the palm of your hand, and is dedicated to drawing money. It sits atop several banknotes, and is surrounded by coins. A lucky cat, Buddha and St Anthony sit nearby.
The lamp in the middle of the table keeps the altar working. It provides heat and light, and contains herbs and oils specifically to draw luck to the altar and keep it strong and hot.
In front of Eshu Laroye sit three bottles of oil. These have been blended from a number of condition oils. There is one bottle for love, one for luck, and one for money. These are what we feed the lodestones with, and what we sometimes use to dress candles and add to lamps.
