The Esoteric Signification of Lucifer

“Magic consists of pulling things from the Darkness into the Light.” -Don Webb

I have written previously in my article Lucifer is Never Sometimes Always Satan that the moniker of Light-Bearer is applicable to many different divinities and has been applied to many different divinities. The conclusion I drew from this is that it is completely appropriate to refer to Satan as Lucifer just as it is completely appropriate to speak of a Lucifer who is separate from Satan.

The entity or aspect of Satan known as Lucifer is related both to the Sun and Venus. Depending upon the time of day, Venus is either referred to as the Morning Star or the Evening Star. Lucifer Qui Mane Oriebaris [Lucifer Son of the Morning] is the planet Venus at Night– i.e. the Morning Star. That is to say, Lucifer is Venus as a portent (or harbinger) of the coming Sunrise (Enlightenment). Helel [Morning Star] has a numerical value of 75 in Gematria. Helel ben Shachar [Morning Star, Son of the Dawn] has numerical values of 635 and 1285.

Lucifer is referred to as the Angel of Light, or in Greek, Aggelos Phos. The Greek word Phos is a contraction of Phaos, which has connotations beyond physical illumination. In his translation of the Pymander Tractate, David Myatt defines Phaos thus: “[Phaos] implies the being, the life, ‘the spark’, of mortals, and, generally, either (i) the illumination, the light, that arises because of the Sun and distinguishes the day from the night, or (ii) any brightness that provides illumination and thus enables things to be seen.”

The Temple of the Black Light refers to Satan as Lucifer or the Light-Bearer in reference to Satan being a harbinger of the Black Light (known as Xul or Aur She-Yesh Bo Machshavah) of which the Black Flame is composed. The definition of Phaos as the life spark of mortals validates this conception.

The Black Flame is considered to be the operative mechanism of individual consciousness as well as the source of humankind’s spiritual/magickal/psychic potentiality. The Qliphoth or Hell is referred to as Reshut ha-Rabbim [Kingdom of Multiplicity] in reference to its facilitation of individual consciousness or self-hood through its construction of the Black Light. The most important component in the construction of the Black Light is the Black Sun, which resides in a sphere of Hell entitled Thagirion [the Disputers] in reference to its invention of conflict through its facilitation of self-hood.

The term Phaos can also signify liberation or victory.

Returning to our quotation of Myatt, Phaos “provides illumination and thus enables things to be seen.” This meaning is well-described in Alexander of Aphrodisias, which states that Phaos is the agent of the process of “coming-to-light” whereby things become “apprehensible to sight.” That is to say, Phaos is the principle and mechanism of manifestation.

Invocation of Alefpene’ash

Alefpene’ash or Alfpunias is called the Harba di Ashm’dai [Sword of Asmodeus] and referred to as Gurigur. He is the son of Asmodeus and Na’amah who presides over 80,000 destructive fiends and resides within the Qliphothic Sphere of Mars. While Asmodeus rules the Martian Qlipha, he is a very multi-faceted entity, so Alfpunias more strongly embodies the nature of Mars. He can raise bloodthirsty, necromantic wraiths and impart power and calculation to the sorcerer.

Invocation of Alfpunias


Baleful and bloodthirsty incubi reside within the Demonian Sphere of the Fire Planet and await the call to warfare from the Sword of Asmodeus. Darksome and malevolement forces emanate from the Qliphoth to blot out the failed justice of the demiurge. I call forth the Visible Face of the Martian Qlipha to descend within this flesh so that I might become transformed.

Liftoach Pandemonium, et germinet Gurigur (x11)
[Open Pandemonium, and bring forth Gurigur]

Ol oecremi isli, ol um isli, sa ol zodameta, Alfpunias (x11)
[I praise thee, I call thee, and I conjure thee, Alfpunias]

Sum Harba de Ashmedai Malka (x11)
[I am the Sword of King Asmodeus]

As I have spoken, so let it be done!

Rite to Lucifer

(This ritual uses magickal chants from the Order of the Nine Angles, Liber Azerate, and Daemon Barzai. The word effulgence means brightness and Stregheria is an Italian witchcraft religion. Phrases in bold are to be vibrated and phrases in italics are to be chanted. Translations appear in brackets)

I call unto Lucifero for the sake of self-empowerment and magickal alchemy. Oh, answer to the words of power and names: Med-Orth + Lucifero + Lumiel + Helel ben Shachar + Lucibel + Asturel + Aggelos Phos + Liftoach Qliphoth + Liftoach Pandemonium

Aperiatur terra, et germinet Lucifer (x7) [Open the Earth and bring forth Lucifer]

Lylusay Tateros Volt Sids Lucifer (x11) (this calls to Lucifer to empower the Black Flame)

Hail unto the Solar-Venusian Warlock whose effulgence foreshadows the Sunrise and the Coming Aeon’s arrival! Hail again unto the God of Stregheria! I call forth Lucifer to magnify the power of my internal fire and beget manifold evolution unto me!

Renich Tasa Uberaca Biasa Icar Lucifer (x7)

As I have spoken, so let it be done!

Invocation of Abaddon

Zazas Zazas Nasatanada Zazas! Salve Apollyon Exterminans! Porro triumphator in inferno sunt! Liftoach Qliphoth! Zodamran! Liftoach Pandemonium! Et revertetur ad tenebras! Melus de Quo Magma! Ol dalagare oecremi babalon gah Abaddon!
[(Words of power to open Hell)! Hail Apollyon the Destroyer! The Power is in Hell! Open (the gates to) Hell! Arise! Open the Plane of Demons! And return all to Darkness! Reality Emanates from the Demonic! I give praise to the wicked spirit Abaddon]

I invoke the Abyssal Emissary of Sitra Ahra, the Demonic-Kliffotic Aspect of the Olympian Far-Striker who presides over Locusts and Da’ath. Invocation of the Black God of the furies which reside in the Backwards Tree is the gateway to a new and black magickal apotheosis and thus I call unto Abaddon, the Blasphemous and Bloodthirsty Gatekeeper and King.

Oh, Abaddon, answer to the names: Pal-Ged + Abaddon Abi Gazam + Antikidos Oxus Drepanon + Exterminans + Olothreutes Anabaino Sitra Achara + Apollyon + Apolhun + Aggelos Abussos + Abbaton + Malakh ha-Mavet

[I call and I invoke Abbaton, the guard of the Kliffot and of their mysteries on whose hands, which hands are covered in blood, all the sons of men may be lifted up to the righteous philosopher’s stone. I give praise to the wicked spirit Abaddon]

I call forth the Nigrescent Liege over the Seventh Legion of Infernality so that I might attain union with the Sacred Gatekeeper of Sitra Ahra and thereby become transformed. Hail unto the Black and Merciless God over Death and the Abyss who is named Abaddon!

Es na ayer Abbadon avage (x7)

Salve Apollyon Exterminans! As I have spoken, so let it be done!

Invocation of Lykania (Hekate’s Lycanthropic Aspect)

(This ritual serves to invoke Hecate’s esoteric lycanthropic aspect through name vibration and Enochian script. In the process of this, the ritual raises Qliphothic and Demonic energy because Hecate is known to work closely and harmoniously with those forces amongst her followers in the LHP. The purpose of this is to raise the spiritual vibration of the area in order to better facilitate the rite. However, as I acknowledge that many practitioners will not desire this kind of energy, I have underlined all chants which call forth Demonic and/or Qliphothic energy so that they may be excluded at the discretion of the celebrant. Names and chants in bold are to be vibrated, whereas phrases in italics are to be chanted. Where name lists occur, each + signifies the end of one vibration/exhalation, and translations of non-English phrases appear in brackets.)

Liftoach Pandemonium! Ave Hecate Kyno Megiste!
[Open the Demonic Realm! Hail Hekate the Great Hound]

Zazas Zazas Nasatanada Zazas

It is my Will to attain union with the Mistress of Hellhounds who is know as Lykania-Hecate so that I might prosper as a sorcerer and lycanthrope. I call forth the Theriomoprhic Matron of the Dark Moon and the Underworld who presides over wraiths, werewolves, and vampyres. Oh hear the names: Kynegetis + Kynokephalos + Philoskylax + Lykania + Kyon Melaiana + Kyno + Skylakitin + Skylakagetis + Kynolygmate

[I praise Hecate Skylakagetis as I become one with her!]

[Come to me Mother Shapeshifter, open the Shells and return all to Darkness]

I walk the earth with the pilose legs of Hecate’s forbidden esoteric atavism, for I am the avatar of Lykania! I gesture through the night with the talons of Hecate and taste the air with her sacred fangs! Lykania, facilitate my self-transformation!

Ol zodameta Lykania, micalzo gah ds ivonph od baltim!
[I conjure thee Lykania, mighty spirit who is wrath and furious justice]

As I have spoken, so let it be done! Ave Hecate Kyno Megiste!

I call forth the Viperous Emissary of the Numinous Obscenity which presides over the Qlipha of the Black Moon so that I might become transformed and empowered. Answer to my call, Ineffable Serpent from the Sphere of the Blood Moon, Pythonic Sentinel of the Other Side! Impart transmutation and alchemy unto me, N.N., a black magickian!

The Undead Gods (With Chants and Sigil)

The Undead Gods are a group of earth-bound wraiths who practiced the art of psychic vampyrism in conjunction with some other form of witchcraft in their physical lives prior to ascent. Every Undead God is different and has their own wisdom and knowledge to impart to the summoner. Countless entirely separate vampyric lodges consort with these entities, and the most common ritual performed in honor of them calls them forth to devour the energy of the celebrant(s) and thereupon refill the celebrant with their own energy. This is an incredibly empowering operation.

The Undead Gods, having been incarnate sorcerers previously, are very accommodating, loyal, patient, loving, and generally well-intentioned. They will appear just about any time you ask them to.

Many names have been given to the Undead Gods. The term Akhkharun (singular: Akhkharu), which originally referred to a specific kind of vampyric entity from Sumerian demonology, is often appropriated for this purpose, but I do not endorse this. The term Strigoi Morte, translated to mean dead vampyres, is far more fitting, as is the title Craik-ii-on. The moniker “Wamphyri” is only useful in rites to the Undead Gods if one is attempting to evoke the specific subset of Undead Gods which the Order of the Nine Angles and its offshoots work with.


This is a picture of the sigil I use for the Undead Gods– it does not refer to any particular subgroup of them. You’ll find this sigil to be very powerful. You may write magickal numbers around the sigil, such as 41, 96, 57, 91, 47, and 56 (the numbers I channeled with a covenmate as apt for calling to the Undead Gods).

The Enochian phrase “Arphe Odzamran Vomquisseron” or “Descend and Appear Undead Gods” should be useful in summoning them. Vomquisseron is a magickal name I channeled for the Undead Gods long ago. The magickal name I channeled for the specific subset of Undead Gods that Niners work with is Crallathorra.

Here is a magickal formula one may use in calling the Undead Gods forth. They will generally gather in the darkest part of the chamber.

Avvar-Akkawn + Craik-ii-on + Strigoi Morte + Vomquisseron + Ammal-Akkor + Omkimmurral + Ommor-Akkawn + Arphe Odzamran Vomquisseron (x7)

To be clear, it is the last chant which is articulated seven times, not the entire formula. The names in bold are all names for the Undead Gods. Any other celebrants should be told to chant “Io Strigoi Morte” repeatedly as the covenhead vibrates the formula (unless one’s covenmates are comfortable vibrating the parts of the formula in unison with the covenhead. The celebrants should aim to intuitively harmonize their articulations with one another). If one intends to call the Crallathorra instead, she should vibrate “Agios o Wamphyri” and “Arphe Odzamran Crallathorra” repeatedly, and/or chant the Communio, which chant appears in Codex Aristarchus by A.A. Morain. The Communio is made to be chanted in a monotone voice.
