Asmodeus Eyes of the StormAbove: Eyes of the Storm by G.A. Rosenberg (Pathworking Artwork)

Aeshma originated in Zoroastrian lore as the Daeva or Div (Ahrimanic Spirit) of the Bloodied Mace who was given authority over seven great methods of causing destruction (he no longer serves Ahriman). In Qabalah, he is known as Asmodeus, the Fiend of the Wounding Spear, the son of either Tubal-Qayin or Ashamdon/Shamdon with Na’amah (who he married). This makes him the grandson of Lilith, as my coven gnosis is that Na’mah is Lilith’s daughter, not sister. Asmodeus works closely with Amdukius, Amaymon, Astaroth and Magot. He is under Amaymon and he is the father of the archdemon known as Alfpunias, Alefpene’ash, or Gurigur. Asmodeus rules the realm of Golachab in the Qliphoth’s left collumn, which realm is attributed to Mars, and is said to be the residence of the most wrathful and powerful succubi. He appears throughout Abrahamic demonology as a spirit of lust, lechery, luxury, and gambling.

Asmodeus rules over the physical aspects of life, violence, lust, prosperity, luck, knowledge, power, revenge, love, warriorhood, and aggression. It is his office to guide the witch in the detection of folly and it is said that his realm of the Qliphoth is home to the most baleful and powerful of succubi. He can impart teachings regarding mathematics, astrology, geomancy, astronomy, and geometry, and he can tutor the witch in any handicraft. One text succinctly states that he presides over “intelligence and skill.”

Asmoday

Old grimoires purport that Asmodeus can make the witch invincible, and newer interpretations state that this is carried out through the augmentation of the witch’s strength of will. The first time I summoned Asmodeus was under the direction of an archdaimon of Hecate which guided most of my coven’s decisions. When I asked what I should request of Asmoday, the strigoi said “Strength of any kind.” He also makes the witch invisible, confers the ability to read minds, discovers and guards treasure, and presides over many domains of pleasure, and ends any kind of relationship.

He can impart mental acuity and physical strength to the witch and he rules the office of judges. He is often depicted riding a dragon, sometimes he carries a lance instead of a spear, not that I have ever seen spirits casually carrying astral weaponry when they appear to witches. The use of sex magick techniques such as karezza are most appropriate for workings with Asmodeus.

Some have advised their fellow Demonolaters to avoid working with Asmoday because of the wealth of information which is available about him. Their rationale is that since there is so much different information about Asmodeus that the witch will not know what exactly she is summoning: his character is hard to pin down. But the reality is that all demons are as multi-faceted as Asmodeus, Lilith, and Satan—the reason that there is so much information about those three spirits is that these entities have taken more prominent roles in human affairs. All of the Azerate have esoteric aspects and secret names which must be kept secret from the public—the few we know are only a fraction of what we will learn, and only a fraction of what you can learn.

I have a list of magickal chants to Asmodeus:

7 thoughts on “Asmodeus (Goetia #32)

  1. Asmoday is a real Persian conqueror. He hates everything about Kabbalah whether its Sephiroth or Qlipphoth. “Who in the hell put me to Golachab? Do those warriors think they can dictate the gods where to sit down?” On another occasion he shouted: “destroy the Kabbalah and all magical systems because they are simply cages.” Asmodeus defeats the enemies of the sorcerer in terrible ways. You better do not ask him for details. He is great. He loves long walks in the nature, animals and precious things. He also confirms that the God of Israel, Allah and Christian god is exactly the same entity. “There are more than 5000 Gods, not just one.”

  2. Some new findings on Asmoday: very friendly towards humans, normal and sacral geometry (“the spirits’ more real appearances that are even on the border to their essence, are those Cymascope-images”), fierce protector (destroys fiendish mages even by causing physical damage, financial ruin etc.), in astral combat the mace, sword and lance are his proven weapons, succubitic magic, incubitic magic, he is patron of gay people, “the story about Sara is true”, explains the story about the magical ring from King Salomon: swallowing a ring into the magical stomach (yachaj), one wing into the sky, one wing into the ground – using the electric potential, in the middle the Iron-Ring-structure – blasting King Salomo into the desert. Confirmed his statement, that beginning from 2018, Demons will gain more and more power over the Gods, bringing the world back into its primal demonic state.

  3. Thank you VK.
    in the Book ‘Clavicula Salomonis Regis’ aka ‘The lesser King of Solomon’
    Pg 75-76
    a story ‘The Fisherman and the Djinn” in the book ‘The Arabian Nights.’

    The Djinn in said story Named ‘Sakhr’ or ‘Sacar’. I’d recalled Amoung other Sources

    Stateing
    ‘Sakhr’ & ‘Asmodeus’ Were the Same being.

    One Such Source
    https://jinn.fandom.com/wiki/Sakhr

    Sakhr (Arabic: صخر “Rock” or the “Stony One”), Sachr, Sackar, Sakhr al-Madhard (rogue stones), or Sahar
    ‘Sahar’ is also known as ‘Ashmedai’ witch is Hebrew for ‘Asmodeus’

    i’m aware of Asmoday’s many Aspact’s, yet In my experiance the Enargy of ‘Sakhr’ were so vastly diffrent, from Asmoday’s Enargy/Nature. Can’t say they’re the same being, AT ALL.

    But So many think other wse it may be worth looking into.
