Invocation of Nyx or Nox

I was commissioned to design the following invocation of Nyx. This ritual was designed to be powerful enough to generate a significant and powerful manifestation without requiring sigils or magickal equipment. Nonetheless, any sigils and pieces of magickal equipment the sorceress has at her disposal may be incorporated into the ritual as she sees fit.

Phrases in italics are meant to be chanted in a rhythmic monotone. Translations appear in brackets. Explanations appear in parentheses. Names and words of power appearing in bold are meant to be vibrated (if you don’t know how to vibrate names and WoP’s, just speak each name or WoP three times each).

This ritual employs two channeled secret names for Nyx (Aznonzae and Sorthatae). Secret names are only for use in magick and worship.

azagthoth
Above: Sigil of Azagthoth Channeled By Augustus Grigori

Due to my research regarding, channeling about, and experience with the Necronomicon by Simon, I have had to reconsider my opinion about the origins of Azagthoth (pronounced Awtsawgthoth or Otsogthoth, where the last syllable rhymes with the word oath). I consider this grimoire to be exactly what it claims to be: an ancient Occult manual, so I have rewritten this article from scratch to integrate the new information it presents, and this time, I’m avoiding a lot of potentially bogus sources as instructed by Azagthoth himself.

Azagthoth is the most powerful name variation of Azagthoth/Azathoth/Atazoth in my experience and that of my friends. In Sumerian, the word Azag means serpent/great serpent, enchanter, or magickian. “Thoth” is believed to mean “he who is like the ibis (a sacred bird connected with wisdom).” One obvious way this name could be interpreted is “great, birdlike serpent,” or in other words, “dragon.”

The introduction to the Necronomicon describes Azagthoth as a lord of black magickians. The core text refers to this being as “the Black Magician” and describes him as enthroned and gloating blindly. In the Necronomicon, Azagthoth is described as a mad and uncontrollable lord of chaos.

Azagthoth 3Above: Sigil of Azagthoth Channeled By V.K.

Azagthoth has came to me at various points in my life, appearing once alongside Chavajoth, the Goetikon, and Nythra (this was the night I dedicated my soul to Chavajoth and the Goetikon). His words were always extremely wise, and his advice always worth following. He is the being who told me to refer to the Qliphoth as “the Black Plane of Chaos” rather than by the Hebrew moniker.

Azagthoth has appeared to me as an anthropoid made of shadow as well as a massive, grey type of crab that dwells underwater. He is a spirit of Daath who is capable of manifesting in the Inbetween, and to be clear, the only place that Azagthoth should be attributed to in the Sephiroth, Qliphoth, what lies beyond the two, etc., is Daath.

Azagthoth has a very special place in my heart, but he is very much maligned. The Necronomicon purports that there is no reason whatsoever to summon Azagthoth, but tells the reader that there are black magickians who conjure him anyways, spreading madness as they do. S. ben Qayin wrote that Azagthoth should only be summoned when every method other than the auspices of Azagthoth has failed to remedy the problem troubling the magickian. This echoes Peter Carroll’s postulation in the Octavo, wherein he writes that the magickian should only “invoke [Azathoth] only in dire emergency when all else has failed and only an unpredictable and extreme event may save the day.”

The magickal system of Hebdomadry, however, does find a purpose in summoning Azagthoth. Unfortunately, Hebdomadry operates along a unique magickal current, which current appears to force the divinities it venerates to manifest in unusual ways. Evoking Azagthoth by their methods is not fun—instead of the wise deity I encounter when Azagthoth appeared to me of his own volition, the methods of summoning him found in Hebdomadry, at least in my experience, led to me encountering something comparable to a child on bath salts, admittedly possessed of an agreeable disposition.

Azagthoth 2Above: Sigil of Azagthoth Channeled By V.K.

I’ll admit to seeking Pazuzu’s guidance before even attempting an invocation of Azagthoth. Pazuzu told me that invoking the spirit would not only be of great use to me, but also be very enjoyable.

Azagthoth definitely seems to have a preference as to which name the sorceress refers to him by, but he doesn’t seem to know which name to prefer. I would recommend referring to him by whichever name you consider to be the most accurate, or the original, so as not to anger him. I’m going with Azagthoth.

I have seen Azagthoth enter a room via a spiraling portal composed of curved black and white rays. In this form, he was a shadow being with white eyes and some black and white design on his chest. He had a reptile-like tail, a reptile-shaped head, and claws. He made that room colder, and its atmosphere heavy.

This occurred while I was doing some work on this article, which article I had begun writing with much more channeling to do. As I was wondering about his magickal specialties, Azagthoth simply told me that he could give me everything I wanted.

At the point that this happened, I had seen Azagthoth manifest as a shadow being in two different aspects. According to Rites in the Thirteen Tongues by Somnus Dreadwood, all shadow beings are connected (a friend of mine who had not read Dreadwood’s literature channeled the fact that all shadow beings are connected herself). This is not to say that there are no rogue shadows who are denied by the umbral hivemind– maybe there are. What this means is that Azagthoth, many of the Roman god Saturn’s emissaries, the shadow aspects of Abaddon and Lucifuge Rofocale, and the spirits of the Tower of Umbra are deeply linked.

Azagthoth is a good deity to work with for the planetary magick of Saturn, as well as for initiating into the deeper mysteries of Saturn. In fact, he can help you work with any planet and any star in any universe, and every sphere of every tree.

Azagthoth is very knowledgeable regarding astrology, and he is one of the deities who assisted my friend and I in transcending the Zodiac (the other entities involved were Senerron, Chernobog, the spirits of Keraktes and the Saturnine Metagod). I did not summon Azagthoth during this rite– he manifested and lent his support of his own volition.

To be clear, Azagthoth manifested and transformed me of his own volition during not only the rite wherein I dedicated my soul to Chavajoth and the Goetikon, but also during the ritual whereby my friend and I transcended the Zodiac. This indicates a predisposition for extreme alchemy and an inclination to give alchemical auspices without being asked to do so.

Invocation of Aphrodite

This ritual serves to invoke Venus/Aphrodite. It was designed to yield significant manifestation without requiring sigils or magickal equipment, but the channeled sigils provided in my article about this goddess and any magickal equipment which the witch has at her disposal may be incorporated as she deems appropriate.

Names which are meant to be vibrated appear in bold font. Chants which are meant to be repeated in a rhythmic monotone appear in italics. Translations of foreign phrases appear in brackets and explanations appear in parentheses. This ritual uses two channeled secret names of Aphrodite: Zhizlal and Mozdaeur. Secret names are only for use in magick and veneration.

I was commissioned to design this ritual.

PazuzuAbove: Channeled Sigil of Pazuzu

Pazuzu is widely considered the King of the Demons of the Wind and Humwawa’s sibling. While he is primarily a god of Daath, he is also attributed to the Venusian, Martial, Saturnine, and Jupiterian spheres of the Qliphoth (he also has a less significant attribution to the Plutonian-Neptunian Qlipha). He refers to Lucifer as his “master;” he only speaks to those whom Lucifer deems worthy, and he pursues the destruction of Lucifer’s enemies in every way.

The Necronomicon by Simon refers to Pazuzu as the “grinning Dark Angel of the Four Wings” and describes him as the “Lord of all fevers and plagues.” The text describes Pazuzu with horns, rotting genitals, and sharpened teeth.

The most common description of Pazuzu’s appearance differs from that provided by the Necronomicon. While he is generally held to have four wings, he is depicted with the head of either a lion or dog (rather than a horned head), and with a snake-headed penis instead of a decaying member. Additionally, he is said to have bulging eyes, a scaly body, the tail of a scorpion, and the talons of an eagle.

I have seen Pazuzu manifest alongside Kutulu more than once. He is capable of manifesting in the Inbetween, and he has always appeared to me as a monstrous anthropoid made of stone, light grey in color, with yellow eyes. In this form, he always stands with one hand pointing up and another pointing down like Baphomet, and a spiraling vortex composed of curved rays (some black and some purple) is always suspended behind him (Kutulu has always appeared to me with the same vortex spiraling behind him as well).

The Necronomicon by Simon purports that whenever Humwawa is present with the sorceress, Pazuzu shall be as well. I will not deny the possibility that Humwawa was lowkey present during the time that Kutulu and Pazuzu manifested to me, but if this were so, Humwawa did not make his presence discernible, waiting to introduce himself to me until the moment I delved into the Urilia text (one of the manuscripts provided in the Necronomicon by Simon).

It was Pazuzu who told me not to fear anybody, to the extent of not fearing the One True King of Demons himself.

Pazuzu embodies death. He guides students of the Necronomicon by Simon to “black oblivion” and shows them the light which lies within. He is a guide to those who pursue wisdom and share knowledge selectively, and he blots out the foolish wizard who imparts forbidden knowledge with the unworthy.*

Pazuzu rules storms, so he can basically do whatever the celebrant wishes in regards to them. He offers great protection and boasts the ability to kill many entities at once. He’s an initiator first and foremost. He specializes in chakra dissolution, meditation on Nazala, malicious vampyrism, and working with djinn and nature spirits.

Pazuzu told me to try conjuring him alongside the King of Salamanders/Fire Elementals in rites of malediction. He said he would incite great terror and bring about massive amounts of carnage were I do to this, elaborating that the specified collaboration would fuck ANYONE up.

Speaking in tongues while possessed by Pazuzu resulted in my using a dialect clearly distinct from the magickal tongues I’m more accustomed to (the demonic language and the universal language). The only deity whose dialect I can think of comparing Pazuzu’s to is Nyx (Nyx and Pazuzu probably use different dialects from one another—this is just the best comparison I can draw).

The Necronomicon by Simon has a table of correspondences wherein given entities are listed with their equivalents in other traditions. In this table, Pazuzu is held to correspond with Choronzon. I would like to clear up any confusion by stating that I am confident that Pazuzu and Choronzon are separate entities. Choronzon and Pazuzu look and act very different and are spoken of differently by my guides.

Pazuzu is traditionally attributed to the southwest wind, which wind is known for bringing locusts, famine, and storms, and was believed to come from the land of the dead. His plane of dwelling is said to be Irkalla, the ancient Mesopotamian underworld ruled by Ereshkigal.

Pazuzu can be called upon to manipulate people and control their minds. In baneful magick, he can devour the souls of your enemies and use the forces of Daath to reduce your enemies to lunacy. You can call upon his name while moon gazing, sun gazing, meditating on a flame, or meditating on a pool of water to exalt your very soul. He’s a great guide for astral projection and dreamwalking. He can open the celebrant’s heart and illuminate her with the Black Light.

This spirit is to be approached with humility and a willingness to delve into the unknown. I will close this article with a quote by Professor Geller: “[Pazuzu] was a primordial being called an obyrith and was said to predate the existence of the Abyss itself. He was known to rule over the first layer of the Abyss which was called Pazunia in his honor. There are even stories that suggest Pazuzu may have been responsible for creation of the Abyss through manipulation of the god Tharizdun.”

*Pazuzu told me he would not seek revenge against those who serve him.
