Starr Casas' Biography
I am a 56 year old Conjure Woman born in Kentucky. I've been a conjure woman all my life. I learned how to do this work from my momma and grandmomma who learned from their elders.
Conjure or what people now call Hoodoo has always been around. In my family we didn't call it Hoodoo. We simply knew this to be "Conjure" or "work."
I've been a Conjure woman for over 40 years. I first learned how to read playing cards at 16 and by the time I was 17 I was already doing spiritual cleansings or what some call uncrossing work. I also did healing work at this time. By the time I turned 25 I was doing work for the family but at that moment I knew it was time to start helping others. At that point I did Conjure work full time for folks that were referred to me by my relatives or by others who knew me. I always worked only by word of mouth until three years ago when it was time to share my gift of Conjure work on the Internet.

His mother was born in a slave quarter on a plantation called “The Hollingsworth Place” in 1934 where a freed slave affectionately known as “Miss Granny” was both her midwife and spiritual God-Mother.
