Nyx, Eris, and Nemesis were among the group of deities whom my former mentor, Adam Percipio, instructed me to call on for a certain black magickial initiatory rite of self-empowerment that I have promised to never reveal to the public. Of the deities I was instructed to call on for that rite, these are the three goddesses whom I found most impressive and desired to continue working with.

In Greek mythology, the goddess Nyx is held to be a fundamental component of reality itself. The Latin variate of her name is Nox, and Nox is held in Thelema to be a complex metaphysical concept of significant magickal importance. In the Left Hand Path, the concept of Nox is given supreme importance in the Draconian Current and retains some importance in Hebdomadry.

Nyx is the bringer of truth whose chariot covers the sky in darkness and casts stars among it. She is described as exceptionally beautiful, but veiled (and she has wings which is cool). She governs prophecy, dreams, and seership, and she helps the witch attain awareness and connect with her true self. She is described as forgiving, loving, compassionate, and yet wrathful. By her engendering of nightfall, she bestows upon those who suffer in day the boons of healing, respite, sleep, dreams, rest, and ultimately, death.

Nyx is infatuated with mischief and immortality, especially when they are pursued in cover of darkness.  She favors fugitives, evil-doers, and thieves, and she is known as the Mother of Mysteries. Her influence is said to beget terror and she is called the “Goddess of Phantoms and Shadows Play.”

Nemesis is the unavoidable and allvanquishing titaness. Her chariot is drawn by griffins– therionick totems of vengeance. Nemesis is the goddess of revenge whom even Zeus is said to fear. All descriptions of her appearance are horrible and grotesque. She is believed to engender the humiliation of prideful humans– a great destroyer of hubris.

Eris is the goddess of strife who resides within the nethermost depths of the realm of the dead. She is the central divinity of a paradigm of Chaos Magick called Discordianism, which paradigm does profess to be legitimately focused on magickal self-transformation.
