World: Muspelheim
Direction: South
Planet: Black Sun (Primary) + Venus Illegitima

Surt is a fire giant who emerges from Muspelheim to lead warriors against the Aesir and Vanir, and he is the godfather of Loki and son of Laufev. While he is said to do battle against Freyr during the apocalypse, whom he shall kill and be killed by in return, such prophecies are not worthy of regard.

The King of Fire and Fire Giants, he rules Muspelheim/Muspellheim/Muspell. He wields a flaming sword with which he turned regular land into what is now his kingdom. This sword, named Laevateinn, is occasionally interpreted alternately to be a wand, and is said to be formed of fire and light. It is said that his flames will engulf the earth, and it is my interpretation that this signifies the onset of a new magickal Aeon rather than the apocalypse.

Surt’s name means either “Black” or “the Swarthy One,” and his name has occasionally been used as a common noun interchangeable with jӧtunn. In the Voluspa, it is said that the Sol Valtiva [sun of the Gods of the Slain] shines from his sword, which likely refers to the Black Sun. And if the flames which consume the earth are of the Black Sun, I cannot wait to be reborn anew in its embers. It is said that his sword will shine more brightly than the sun, which hints that the Logos of the coming age will exceed the Solar Logos in enlightenment.

Some consider Surt to be the animating impetus of the Underworld’s volcanic flames. He is known to be the father of the Eldjӧtnar/Eldthursar [Translation: Fire Giants] who dwell within Muspell. These giants, also referred to as Muspellmegir/Muspellsynir [sons of Muspell] or Rjúfendr [Destroyers of Doomsday] are seen as nothing short of giants of the apocalypse. It is said that Surtr fosters a strong relationship with Loki’s daughter Hela, whom he refers to as “Her Ladyship” despite the disparity in their ages. It is said that these two collaborate in the construction of Naglfari, the Great Ship of Ragnarok.

My intimation of Surtur is that Enochian will get results in workings with him, but that the magickal language of Ouranian is preferable for working with him.

Surt can be called upon to impart fiery wings to the astral double as well as the ability to create powerful protective shields (like fiery bubbles around you) at will. Surt can be called upon to wreak destruction, devastation, and war, and to bring about the protection or execration of the target. Aside from teaching mastery of the element of fire, and the ability to harness it for killing spirits as well as coercive evocation, he is a god of combat. He can teach the witch how to fight as well as improve her ability to do so.

Surtur is apt for sex work and magick as well. His blessings, namely his enchantment of my cock, has helped me fuck harder and flirt with confidence.
