AN ORIGINAL CROSSROADS RITUAL

After some searching on the internet, I  could not find a completely satisfactory crossroads ritual, though I did end up writing  a ritual for myself at the crossroads involving discovering your gift using a tarot spread....The Crossroads Ritual and Tarot

 

ABOUT PAPA LEGBA:

 

Papa Legba is known by several names. In Surinam in Brazil he is known as Exu, in Trinidad, in Cuba he is known as Elegua, and in Haiti and New Orleans he is known as Papa Legba. Papa Legba is the master linguist, the trickster, warrior, and the personal messenger of destiny. He has the power to remove obstacles and he provides opportunities. All ceremonies begin and end with Papa Legba, and there can be no communication with any of the other loas without consulting him first. His gift for linguistics enables him to translate the requests of humans into the languages of the spirits and loas.apa Legba's colors are red in black (as worshipped in New Orleans), and some of his favorite things that can be used as offerings include, candy, cigars, rum, and tobacco. He absolutely loves palm oil. His number is three and his day of the week is Monday. He is often depicted as an old man with a crooked cane, dressed in brown pants, and accompanied by a rooster.

OUTDOOR VERSION

 

Offerings:

cigar, rum, candy. 4 dimes, 3 pennies

Go to an out of the crossroads, the intersection of 2 roads. (picture)

Place a dime, for 4 total, on each road.

At the center of the crossroads, place the glass of rum and the candy

 Invoke the Black Man at the Crossroads (aka Papa Legba) in this manner:

Chant the following and place the lit cigars in the center of the crossroad, with the glasses of rum and the cane.
Papa Legba, open the gate for me Ago eh, Papa Legba, open the gate for me Open the gate for me, Papa,  for me to pass When I return I will thank the Lwa!

Light the cigar; pour some rum into a glass.

Go to each of the directions and blow cigar smoke; take a sip of rum and spit it out in each direction.

Return to the center of the crossroads. Dance yourself into a trance.
If he responds, he will do so while you are in this trance; at this moment, you may request a gift, make a petition, ask  him for a talent.
Wait for his reply, thank him and close out your ritual

The next day, return to the crossroads and leave three pennies.

Make an  altar.  Cover your altar with a red and black cloth. You can put a coconut on the altar to represent Eleggua; a red candle and a black candle; Papa Legba's Veve. Put the tarot cards in the appropriate directions. Shake a maracca and call his name. Invoke him this way:


Papa Legba open the gate for me, ago e!
Atibon Legba open the gate for me!
Open the gate for me, Papa, for me to pass,
When I return, I will thank the lwa.

 

 Tell him what you need. Promise him a cigar, Candy (7 pieces), rum, and candle if he grants your request.
When he does grant your request, it is best to make these offerings of gratitude to him on a Monday, along with any prayer you may know to personally thank him (make one up if you wish).
