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 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.
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.
