Interpreting the Mythology of Ziz

While Behemoth is the apocalyptic beast of the earth, Ziz is the apocalyptic beast of the air and aerospace. Ziz is held to be the ruler of all birds. He is described as an enormous bird, and his size has been compared to that of Leviathan. Hebrew lore depicts him sitting atop the earth with his head reaching far into the sky. It is said that his wingspan can block out the sun, and that when he does unfurl his wings to that extent, he shields the earth from “the winds of the south” which would, according to myth, destroy this planet otherwise. When his wings spread, a total eclipse ensues, and the entire world is said to darken.

“Ziz” is a word in the Hebrew language the same way that “Meh” is a word in the English language. It’s used to (inarticulately) describe the taste of a given food. The idea here is that one day the Abrahamic deity is gonna kill Ziz and feed him to the Jews. Despite the derogatory intent behind the name, something about an apocalyptic demon having a name that both starts and ends with the last letter of the alphabet and reads the same backwards and forwards feels… apt.

The other apocalyptic beasts are possessed of extreme metaphysical significance, so it is appropriate to assume that Ziz does as well. Perhaps whatever this significance is can be inferred from his name via esoteric name analysis. The name would appear to signify something to the tune of “Ashes to Ashes,” except, in this context, “Aeons to Aeons” makes a lot more sense.

Ziz is often compared to the Greek phoenix, which bears huge esoteric significance for Ziz’s interpretation in demon magick. This comparison proves my esoteric name interpretation accurate,* but it does more than that. In Thelemic esotericism, the phoenix represents the entirety of the universe– the supersoul or superstring field. Behemoth is considered to be the mechanism whereby the causal world is made to be stable, right? Well, if Ziz’s name has the esoteric meaning of “Aeons to Aeons,” and if he is attributed to the Phoenix/Supersoul, and if he is equally attributed to all four causal alchemical elements, and if his wings prevent the earth from being destroyed, it seems most likely that Ziz is, like Behemoth, a sentient deity who operates as or at least exerts agency such that he is perceived as a fundamental component of creation– you know, like Nyx in Greek mythology.

Alright, now that I’ve been successful with one of Ziz’s names, I’mma interpret the other ones. Ziz’s name “Renanin” means “Celestial Singer.” Since Ziz is sometimes described as a rooster, and roosters crow when the sun comes up, I interpret this name as esoterically signifying Ziz being the demon-god who declares the onset of the next aeon. He is also called Sekwi, meaning “Seer,” in reference to his purported “relation to the heavenly regions.” I can’t interpret that. Lastly, his name Bariuchne is translated as “to be roasted at this feast.” What’s that you’re telling me Hebrew lore? Ziz is gonna burn? Like a PHOOOOOEEENNNNNIIXXXXX????? Boom! Aeonic inference again, bitch! If the universe is to be signified by a phoenix, the cyclic burning and rebirth of the Phoenix is to be interpreted as the cyclic procession of aeons.

*Yes I’m going back and forth between writing this article and doing the research for this article. I know that’s strange, but you have to admit, my esoteric name interpretation is pretty fucking dope.

Ziz in Demon Magick

Ziz is powerful in rites of baneful magick, specializing in binding spells, lethal execrations, and vampyric sorcery. He can help the magickian integrate her shadow and commune with her Higher Self. His auspices are apt for the divinatory usage of Tarot cards and bones.

Ziz presides over necromancy, nature magick, psychic vampyrism, the creation of egregores, sex magick, glamour spells, mind control, sanguine vampyrism, shapeshifting in dreams and astral projection, lunar magick, Vodoun, and the usage of Norse runes in sorcery. He is greatly knowledgeable regarding the Eleusinian mysteries and he can be called upon to strengthen the magickian’s personal magnetism.

Ziz can cure (in full or in part depending on the strength of the rite) addiction, remove or diminish insecurities, and fix digestive problems. He can initiate the witch through Bapki [the Planetary Sphere of the Earth] and Shams [the Planetary Sphere of the Sun].

Ziz can increase the magickian’s social skills and make her a better writer. He can teach the witch how to read people as well as seduce them, and he can make her a better liar. He can impart courage, creativity, and femininity to people.

Ziz is greatly knowledgeable regarding automobile mechanics, welding, and quantum mechanics. He can improve the witch’s physical reflexes and teach her to do all that cool shit that that one friend you have who used to street race can do.

Ziz can help you perform a pretty dope vampyric sex magick technique. With his help, you’ll create an egregore which will feed upon the sexual energy of someone you’re fucking, refine it, and then give it to you. That sounds fucking great.

The internal nexion of the magickian will become either a Black Flame or a “White Flame” based upon which energies she integrates into her physis [ever-changing nature of a being with spirit]. Ziz can be called upon to give you either, or something inbetween. If you want your internal nexion darker or lighter but stronger either way, Ziz is the demon that you call on.

Ziz can be called on in spellwork to bring about healing, fidelity, love, and luck. He can help the witch strengthen her ability to remember her dreams and/or attain lucidity within them. He specializes in work with the Red Kundalini as well as all chakras, no matter how obscure (he still does specialize a bit in the seven spinal chakras).

Conspiracy Theory

Behemoth has appeared in the ritual praxis of Primal Craft, the Draconian Tradition, Traditional Demonolatry, and more, so there’s really no question that he’s no servant of Jehovah– after all, he appears prominently in medieval demonology as well as more obscure strains of Qliphothic demonology. But I think there might be something behind the claim that Behemoth was created by, serves, can only be killed by, and will eventually be killed by Jehovah. I honestly wouldn’t blame you if you skipped this section of the article.

Hebrew lore’s descriptions of Jehovah’s relation with the apocalyptic beasts seems like deliberate slander on the part of Jehovah. Hebrew lore purports that both Behemoth and Ziz are faithful servants and creations of Jehovah, which is odd, because Hebrew lore prophesies that, once the world ends, Ziz and Behemoth will be killed, eaten, and then served at a great feast alongside the corpses of the two Leviathans.

The Leviathans were Jehovah’s enemies– why would two faithful servants of Jehovah alongside their “master’s” enemies, and why would Ziz and Behemoth be lumped in together with the Leviathans at all? Hebrew lore claims that Jehovah is the only entity that can kill Behemoth, but why would Jehovah feel the need to posture like that– especially if Behemoth serves him?

Alright, so if you were a tribal war god who wanted to be venerated as if you were the only deity and existence, what type of shit would you tell your prophets about the group of incomparably powerful demon-gods whose agencies are or appear to be cornerstones of this universe’s creation and sustained existence? You’d definitely wanna downplay the fuck out of them, right? If Jehovah wants to pretend that he created Satan, and that Satan once served him, and that Satan rebelled because he basically wanted to be Jehovah, what do you think Jehovah would tell his prophets about the demon-gods who played a role in the manifestation of the causal realm? Let’s imagine that for a moment, shall we?

“Oh, that Ziz guy? He’s totally my bitch. I’m basically his dad. He does whatever I tell him to and all his wisdom comes directly from me. I could totally kill him by the way. You know what? I think Ziz is bitchmade– I think I’m gonna fucking feed him to you! And I’ll do the same thing with that Behemoth dude– he serves me too! He may be a cornerstone of creation, but he’s a cornerstone of my creation, and he totally does whatever I say. Did you know that I’m the only entity in existence that can kill the Behemoth?”

Who got roasted now, bitch?
