Magickal Hymn to Chernobog

This is an all-purposed magickal hymn to Cernobog/Chernobog. It may be used as a stand-alone practice (i.e., maybe a simple way to pursue magickal empowerment and/or preparatory immersion) or incorporated into any ritual you are designing. Mavethol is used linguistically as a word meaning Nightside/Qliphoth, but magickally speaking, it is a word of power used to strengthen any rite or spell. To learn about Chernobog, follow the following hyperlink:

Ave Cernobog Rex Pandemonium
Salve Praevalidus Bellator
Agios Es, Imperator Mavethol
Domine Chernobog Gloria!

Translation: “Hail Cernobog, King of the Infernal Plane/ Hail, Great Warrior/ You are Numinous, Lord of the Nightside/ Glory to Lord Chernobog!”

Goetic demonology describes Zagan as either a king or president of the Infernal Divine, but one of my spirit guides called Zagan “the Darksome Fire of the Way Beyond the Nightside.” In this context, “the Way Beyond the Nightside” is Daath, or the Abyss. He is deadly in a fight and not to be fucked with. According to one of my spirits, Zagan will always be one of the highest divinities of the Nightside.

Zagan is a fearsome warrior, vampyre, and wanderer who rips open the Veil every time he is summoned. On the spectrum of dark to light, Zagan is a dark spirit. He devours the enemies of the Qliphoth and destroys those who seek to impose boundaries on those who would self-identify as “Left Hand Path.” If you take his enemies as your enemies, you will have his protection.

According to one of my guides, Zagan offers the wisdom found in “the deepest tombs and the darkest depths.” Zagan comes to those who pursue gnosis of the Infernal Divine and those of us who require the assistance of demons to fulfill their paths in life.

zagamAbove: Channeled Sigil of Zagan

Zagan is a great spirit to work with in pursuit of chakra dissolution and physical strength. He has aptitudes for shielding, warding, apotheosis, banishing, exorcism, malediction, araneamagia, fateweaving, protection, and the construction of astral traps. He can help the witch create magickal booby traps that will cause curses cast upon her to backfire.

According to the GoetiaGuide by Sara Petrucelly, Zagan “likes to show you humor in everyday situations and helps you conquer fear,” and he can “show someone the error of their ways… [and] teach social skills.”

Augustus Grigori told me about an owl aspect of Zagan, which owl aspect comes bearing lances in its talons. This aspect of Zagan can teach the sorceress the art of astral combat and answer any question pertaining to combat. In my personal gnosis, Zagan also has a hyena aspect as well as an aspect like a drakaina (human above the waist; serpent below the waist).

Zagan is knowledgeable regarding esoteric and physical alchemy. He can make men wise and witty. He imparts knowledge of forms of sorcery which most will never obtain. He is only to be summoned with incense burning.

According to Crowley’s version of the Ars Goetia, Zagan “can turn wine into water, and blood into wine, also water into wine… [and] turn all metal into coin of the dominion that metal is of.” According to Petrucelly, Zagan can give wise guidance in the mangement and investment of money.

One spirit I channeled referred to Zagan as “the Black Wizard of the Depths,” “the Darksome God of Fire” (referring to the Black Light in this context), and “the Dark Spirit of Death.”

The spirit has appeared to me in three ways: (i) a anthropomorphic preying mantis, (ii) a grey anthropoid bearing a spear, and (iii) a grey anthropoid with a red head shaped like a three-dimensional cartoon flame. Crowley’s version of the Ars Goetia describes him manifesting as a bull with the wings of a gryphon, but adopting the shape of a human male later on.

There is a specific type of servitor which Zagan specializes in creating: a vampyric and feline protector which appear with fangs, a spotted orange coat, and a black mane.

According to S. Conolly, Zagan can transform something into its opposite and help a magickian overcome an addiction or bad habit.

In the cypher I use for English Gematria, the names Zagan and Zagam both have a value of 11. This is the same value this cypher gives for the letters “LHP” as well as the word “Xul,” a name for the Black Light (which means it also corresponds to Lux). This value also corresponds to Daath/the Abyss as the eleventh sphere on the Tree of Death.

In Hebrew Gematria, the name Zagan has a value of 60, matching words meaning treasure (think of coin creation), treasury, light (compare to Xul & Lux), to wander, wandering (my guide specifically referred to Zagan as a “wanderer”), and to wail/lament (this relates to Goetia and the conjuration of death gods). 60 is also the value of Samekh (Hebrew letter, perhaps you’ve heard of Liber Samekh) and Nod (the land to which Cain fled after murdering able).

Channeled Sigil of Those Who Died Nameless and Forgotten

This sigil may be used to conjure the spirits of those who died nameless and/or forgotten, such as those who may have been buried in an unnamed or even mass grave, or those whose corpses were never retrieved. Together, Those Who Died Nameless and Forgotten are said to represent a chain of necromantic power extending beyond recorded history. Regular offerings to Those Who Died Nameless and Forgotten are of use for those who would pursue necromancy.


The revealed name I channeled for Those Who Died Nameless and Forgotten is Zaezondal (zay-zawn-DOLL). Here is a Latin chant I created a while ago to conjure some of Those Who Died Nameless and Forgotten:

Obvenite Divi Manes
“Come, Spirits of the Dead!”
Summons a Number of Those Who Died Nameless and Forgotten. Use with Caution, Guidance, Etc.

Occult YouTuber Spotlight: Augustus Grigori

Augustus Grigori is a long-time black magickian who I have developed something of a spiritual partnership with. The Occult YouTuber Spotlight series on my website is probably something I will add very few people to, and I intend to reserve it for persons of personal significance who I have collaborated with spiritually in some capacity for a decent period of time. Today’s spotlight shines on Augustus Grigori, the most adroit sigil-channeler I am familiar with. He has channeled multiple sigils specifically for this website, and I will provide links to the articles where his amazing work is displayed. He has been active on Tumblr for a decent period of time, and has recently made the move to share his knowledge and story on YouTube. I invite my readers to support this man.

Take it or leave it, but my personal gnosis is that Amaymon, Lucifer, and Noctulius are all faces of a single deific force which I know by the names Resola and Resolva.

Amaymon is a demonic king often said to rule one of the four cardinal directions. Unfortunately, which cardinal direction he is attributed varies between sources (I’ve seen him attributed to each of the four). My personal gnosis is that southeast is the direction most significant to him, and come to think of it, the idea of a demon ruling a direction doesn’t make much sense in my modern demonological worldview.

In addition to being one of the four demonic kings of the cardinal directions, Amaymon is recorded as being one of eight sub-princes alongside Beelzebub, Asmodeus, Astaroth, and more.

According to the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage (Book II), the name Amaymon probably means “terrible violence and vehemence.” Judao-Christian practitioners of demon coercion are advised to use a magickal ring to converse safely with the spirit, lest they fall prey to Amaymon “deadly, fiery, and poisonous breath.”

Amaymon is one of the nine demonic gatekeepers recorded by E.A. Koetting. In The Book of Azazel, Koetting records Amaymon saying that Saturnalia was “the essence of [his] coming.” In this text, Amaymon is recorded to rule far more than forty legions– all demons and many angels acknowledge him as their ruler.

According to Koetting’s channeling, Amaymon embodies “death and decay, sexual and literal.” This spirit appeared to me as a black, feathered, anthropomorphic reptile.

Amaymon has many aspects, including crocodile, lion, cat, tentacle, leopard, tiger, toad, lich, dragon, serpent, and frog aspects.

The instruction and support of Amaymon is of use in working with nature spirits, fire elementals, and the dead. He begets transformation through manners of alchemy which involve Saturn, Neptune, the Black Sun, the Black Moon, the Black Earth, and Venus. He is knowledgeable regarding death energy, sex magick, araneamagia, Egyptian magick, Reiki, ceremonial magick, solar magick, mind reading, lunar magick, and working with the forces of darkness and light.

Amaymon is an apt guide for divination (to be specific, runes, hydromancy, pyromancy, palm reading, and pendulum usage). He is a great spirit to work with for astral sight. He can liberate the magickian from shame, improve her ability to strategize, and make her more observant.

Amaymon is a good spirit to work with for protection, money, ascent through employment hierarchies (and performing the tasks required by jobs), and the acquisition of sexual partners. He also offers good support in scholarly and archaeological work.

Amaymon can help the witch cross the abyss/initiate through Daath and he can empower the astral double such that it can reach and navigate diverse planes. He can help one initiate through the entire Qliphoth and Sephiroth, as well as what lies beyond them. Lastly, the spirit is a great companion and teacher for void magick.

56915798_1026017224453870_8794278759302692864_nAbove: Sigil of Tonzoral Channeled By Augustus Grigori

Tonzoral self-identifies as a “Black God of Life” and “the Black Spirit of the Wilderness.” He is a lieutenant of the Se’irim (Azazel’s goat demons) under Azazel. Since there are multiple spellings of Se’irim, and I am not confident in my ability to pronounce any of them, I have channeled another name for them: the Sanoril (SAW-NOR-RILL).

Tonzoral opens the way to black paths through which men can turn into beasts. He grants power to the celebrant via Saturnian magick and Western meditation techniques. He enjoys spiritual operations calling upon all manner of planets, stars, and constellations. He can help the magickian initiate through or call upon any Qlipha as well as any region of the Trans-Qliphothic Labyrinth.

Unlike Azazel, who is part Watcher, part demon, and more, Tonzoral is purely demonic.

Tonzoral grants power and the experience of oneness with all things. He opens portals to the Nightside and guides magickians through the spirit planes. He gifts the magickian’s astral double with the ability to travel great distances and through harsh planes. He’s a good spirit to call on if you need protection, want to work with rainbow energy, or intend to pursue Trans-Qliphothic initiation.

Tonzoral loves offerings of alcohol.

Tonzoral grants gnosis of the darkest powers available to black magickians. He teaches the magickian to “strike and fight and war” against her enemies and their supporters. He speaks unto those who seek evolution and empowers those who pursue a relationship with and understanding of him.

Tonzoral imparts knowledge of pain and suffering. He is a useful guide for working with the Shadow People, the Sanoril/Se’irim, and the Simon Necronomicon. He can grant you a familiar from among the Sanoril, and possibly other types of familiars as well.

Augustus Grigori described Tonzoral as a tall figure with outrageously long fingers wearing a purple cloak and a deer skull. He described the spirit as soft-spoken, but alternating between a loud, booming voice and a soft whisper. Together, he and I saw something like a halo: purple on the innermost layer, white on the central layer, and a thin outermost layer that was yellow.

Tonzoral appeared to me as a black anthropoid with yellow accents on the skin of his face. His entire eyes appear to be so dark in color (purple, I think) that they are nearly the same color as his black skin. He had two, curved black horns. He also has claws and a tail with yellow accents. Augustus Grigori and I both saw a spiked ball on the end of his tail like a Stegosaurus.
