    Hi James and List,
    Of the myriad slang meanings mojo might have now, I believe the
    origin to be in American Hoodoo conjurework. At least the mojo you
    hear mentioned in all those old blues songs anyway. It's usually a
    small flannel bag or charm that you carry on your person to
    "activate" a spell. A lot of general-use mojos are for luck in love,
    gambling, etc but get more special-purpose from there.
    Can anybody add to this? I'm certainly no authority.

    Got my mojo workin',
