Lucifuge is the Witch-God or Patron of Sorcery as well as the Chief of Infernal Pacts. He can be called on to cast destructive curses upon deities and he erases the demiurge’s ability to hinder the witch. Lucifuge Rofocal specializes in the infliction of illness and deformity, and he can devour a target’s strength of will. Although he is a being of great knowledge and perspicacity, he speaks with a soft voice.
Lucifuge can refine the intellect of the witch and impart wisdom and erudition to her. He can help connect you more strongly with the spiritual world around you. My coven had three members who own martial arts staffs, and we were instructed to enchant them all in his name and have them present when evoking him.
Although he is an overwhelmingly powerful sorcerer, Lucifage emanates and aura and presence of tranquility to conceal the magnitude of his strength. His nature is apt for baleful rites and the diffusion of the curses placed upon you. Lucerifuge rules over money, luck, chemistry, prosperity, and ambition. Considered to be he Qliphoth’s Occult librarian and scholar, he rules hatred, execration magick, war, revenge, strength, victory, courage, and anger. As a slightly psychic-vampyric entity, he can steal the magickal power of an Occultist plotting for the harm of the Satanist.
According to E.A. Koetting, Rofocale is “the Lord of Excess. He has no concept of having ‘had enough,’ and I doubt that ‘contentment’ is even a word he’s familiar with. More power, more wealth, more sex, more love, more happiness, more joy. More, more, more.”
Koetting’s description of Lucifuge appears to be verified by the description of the spirit in a traditional rite of his summoning cited in The Secret Teachings of All Ages wherein Lucifuge is referred to as a “Prince of Demons” and said to be able to “bestow upon me all the treasures of the earth” and “fulfil my every desire for the length of my natural life” [sic]. S. Conolly has mentioned working with Lucifuge “to manifest more disciplined working habits for [her]self.” One Traditional Demonolater I’ve corresponded with over social media has described Lucifuge having completely purged him of all his addictions, “even candy!”
Liber Azerate refers to Lucifuge Rofocale as the “Living Darkness” who obliterates and weakens the Abrahamic deity’s influence over the populace and helps the witch transcend the limits of causality. The manuscripts of the Temple of the Black Light refers to Lucifuge as “the revealer of all the hidden treasures of the Nightside” who “establishes the purifying the darkness illuminated by the Black Light.”
The Path to Satan attributes Lucifuge Rofocale to the letter G of the “Infernal Alphabet.” Kenneth Grant has referred to G as “the letter of the High Priestess” and “the vehicle by which the crossing is achieved.”
Lucifuge Rofocale presides over Satorial/Sathariel/Harasiel, the Qlipha related to Saturn. E.A. Koetting has inferred from Lucifer’s attribution to the Sun that Lucifuge must relate to the Black Sun. This is very sensible considering that Lucifuge is attributed to Saturn and Lucifer is attributed to Venus– planets largely opposite to one another yet containing lesser aspects which mirror the other’s influence. And surely enough, there are lesser-known traditions of Qabbalistic Demonology wherein Lucifuge is held to be the Chief of Thagirion (Black Sun/Belphagore). Hopefully you’re starting to see why I like Koetting so much.
Lucifuge is the archivist of Hell who instructs the witch in all manner of arcana and assists all black magickians, newer Satanists in particular. According to Mark Allan Smith, he rules “worlds in the realm of possibilities beyond the spiritual abyss.”
Stephen Bleach once evoked Lucifuge very disrespectfully in his youth, and Lucifuge was quick to retaliate mischievously. He does not tolerate abuse, but he will forgive a magickian with potential.
Lucifuge is purported to appear either as a three-horned Satyr or a red and viperous, five-horned anthropoid, or perhaps as a bald magickian in a gold and silver robe, and he rules the third Qlipha from the top. In The Book of Agares by S. Conolly, a dream-gnosis is described wherein Rofocale appeared as an older man with silver hair and silver eyes.
The name Lucifuge Rofocale has a value of 414, being also the number of the Limitless Light. According to Liber Sitra Ahra:
Lucifuge Rofocale, Beelzebuth, and Moloch all have 16 hidden in their names. We see that these three are united in some way. We see the words “becoming” and “establishment”. More importantly, if we take the number 16 and add the 1 and 6 we get 7. Three 7’s, 777, as we know is OVLM HQLIPVTh or the “land of shells”. This obviously is the Qliphoth.
To make a minor correction, “the Land of Shells” or “the World of the Qliphoth” is not a name for the Qliphoth itself, but a name of our fucking planet.
Analysts are too quick to equate him to pre-existent deities: Focalor, Tarchimache, Belial, Mephistopholes, Tarichimal, and Lucifer. These will obscure the actual essence of Lucifuge, so he is best approached as an independent deity. The witch who does not approach him with respect will suffer.
