I may be tired of writing, but there ain’t no brakes on this rape train.
There are many planetary spheres which are not encompassed by schemas like the Qliphoth or the Tree of Wyrd, and Ipos introduced me to one I’d never heard of before and single-handedly initiated me through it. He called it the core of the Earth, and if I remember correctly, he initiated me through it after my self-initiation through the sphere of Gamchicoth (Jupiter/Astaroth). This occurred following some very obscure permutations of my spirit body at the hands of Azael and its success might be dependent on his alchemies, so seek guidance.
Ipos supports the witch by making her courageous, imparting decisiveness, and helping her control her emotions. He teaches wit and rules over death. He can initiate the witch through the Sphere of the Moon and guide her through pathworking meditations (also called meditation journeys) using the tarot. He rules over the triangle of manifestation, and triangles in general are sacred to him.
Ipos rules over ice and snow. He can unbind entities from one’s aura and protect her from psychic attack. He can also increase the subtle body’s natural defenses against psychic attack. He can either remove emotional attachments or make them firmer, and he specializes in the use and consecration of black mirrors and crystal balls.
Ipos can cause destruction through the laughter of the Abyss and ignite one’s soul with the fire of Flauros. He imparts confidence, eloquence, presence, independence, inspiration, humor, grace, and bravery. He can reconcile friendships, reveal secrets, and influence decisions. He rules over self-development and divination.
Ipos is said to manifest as either an angel or a lion and be repulsive either way. Alternative demonography depicts him manifesting as a angel with a lion’s head, the foot of a goose, and the tail of either a rabbit or a horse. He appeared to me as a bald anthropoid with snow white skin, black eyes, a crown, sharp features to a near-cartoonish extent, black robes, and blue and yellow butterfly wings. (Remember: never try to anticipate the appearance of a demon– always go in free of presumptions and let their choose their own appearance when they manifest for you, because their appearance is an intimation of their character).
Ayperos’s traditional ‘enn’ or summoning chant is Desa An Ipos Ayer. One chant I use is Liftoach Pandemonium, et germinet Ayporos, which presences Qliphothic energy to raise or strengthen a sacred space and simultaneously summon Ipos. It translates to “Open the Infernal Plane, and Bring Forth Ayporos.” The last chant I have for him is Io Ipes-Aypeos-Ipos (the word ‘Io’ means “Hail”). If that’s not enough, he’s still got about a billion names for you to vibrate.
