Human Sacrifice: Not As Bad As You’d Think

It is possible to kill someone with magick by ritualistically designating them as a human sacrifice to a given deity. Death curses usually take years to kill their target, and of course, this method kills slow. The victim is gradually devoured and killed.

I have not attempted this method, and probably never will. I am not a homicidal or sadistic person by nature, and I have never killed a human being through magick. Nonetheless, this technique has been tried on me without success, because I knew that some day, somebody would try it on me.

I have designated my death as an offering to a given spirit, such that when I die, no matter how or when, my physical life is sacrificed to that spirit. I did this partially because I planned on killing myself, and partially because I wanted it to be impossible for someone else to sacrifice me. The fact that I have considered both possibilities should tell you a lot about the life that I’ve lived.

This technique of magickal murder by sacrificial designation is growing in popularity, which makes it less and less reliable. It is possible that the person whom the magickian wants to designate as a sacrifice has already been designated, by another practitioner, as a sacrifice to a different divinity. Needless to say, this could lead to failure, and presumably, to offending two different gods.

Offerings do not need to be given in a ritual setting. Therefore, human sacrifice does not need to be committed during a rite, and therefore does not have to be murder. A person killed in self-defense or war can be designated as a human sacrifice even after they die. The Norse were known to hurl a spear over a group of enemy forces and proclaim them all human sacrifices to Odin in anticipation of their slaughter in battle.

As the spirit planes are not bound by linear time, someone killed long ago can be retroactively designated as a sacrifice.

We need not ask whether or not it is right to commit human sacrifice. Instead, we need ask whether or not a given person should be killed. In a self-defense situation, the answer to this question can be yes. My policy on human sacrifice is summarized by the idiom, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.”

Magickal Hymns to Chronos, Saturn, & Zuhal

Here I present a magickal hymn for each of the three first faces of the Saturnian Divinity which I started working with. While Arthur Moros posits that Zuhal (Arabic), Saturn (Roman), and Chronos (Greek) are one and the same, the demon Ralasan told me that these are three distinct aspects of one force who should be approached largely the way one would approach three individual entities.

Saturn is the Nightside Bearer of Wisdom: a sickle-bearing deity of chaos and time– a dark and primordial harbinger of enlightenment. Chronos is the embodiment of time and the king of titans– a time-traveling harbinger of power and wisdom. Zuhal is the lord of mystery– a demonic patron of wisdom and spirituality. These are gods of chaos who are to be worshiped when approached, whose offerings it is forbidden to partake of.

Control, Know, Eat, Subsume

A long time ago, I got a message from Nyx that I didn’t understand and made a video about it. My conversation with the goddess went a little like this.
 
Nyx: _______ yourself.
Me: Did you say “know yourself” or “control yourself?”
Nyx: Control, Know, Eat, Subsume.
 
A recent YouTube commenter explained the message flawlessly:
“Control yourself, and therefore come to know yourself. Once self knowledge is obtained, you can dissolve/”eat” your old self, then become part of something larger. Alternately, the old self becomes a subset of the new self, and does not become part of some collective.”
