In Hoodoo practices the skin of a snake can be used to bring good and bad things. On the light side it is used to bring luck, break crossings (hexes) wisdom, protection, and good fortune especially to Gamblers. And on the darker side it used to hex. To confuse an enemy, to harm them, or to bring rotten luck.
For use in jinxing, crossing, goofering, and “live things in you.”
