Mojo means your influence, confidence or personal charisma. It was originally a slang term from the US associated with the music and dance culture, but has entered the English as well as the American language and is being used more widely. It has also taken on an additional meaning of personal confidence and charisma with regard to sexual relationships. The word Mojo itself probably derives from African-American language where it refers to a personal talisman or witchcraft charm, and is itself derived from the word Moco used by the Gullah people meaning witchcraft. The word First received widespread exposure in the 1957 recording of the song Got My Mojo Working by Muddy Waters.

That often elusive quality that sets a person apart from everyone else. The word "magic" could, almost without exception, replace "mojo" in all of its contexts, sentences, and/or applications.
I just saw David Lee Roth on Leno last night. He did a country version of an old Van Halen song ... he has DEFINITELY lost his mojo!!
