Take it or leave it, but my personal gnosis is that Amaymon, Lucifer, and Noctulius are all faces of a single deific force which I know by the names Resola and Resolva.

Amaymon is a demonic king often said to rule one of the four cardinal directions. Unfortunately, which cardinal direction he is attributed varies between sources (I’ve seen him attributed to each of the four). My personal gnosis is that southeast is the direction most significant to him, and come to think of it, the idea of a demon ruling a direction doesn’t make much sense in my modern demonological worldview.

In addition to being one of the four demonic kings of the cardinal directions, Amaymon is recorded as being one of eight sub-princes alongside Beelzebub, Asmodeus, Astaroth, and more.

According to the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage (Book II), the name Amaymon probably means “terrible violence and vehemence.” Judao-Christian practitioners of demon coercion are advised to use a magickal ring to converse safely with the spirit, lest they fall prey to Amaymon “deadly, fiery, and poisonous breath.”

Amaymon is one of the nine demonic gatekeepers recorded by E.A. Koetting. In The Book of Azazel, Koetting records Amaymon saying that Saturnalia was “the essence of [his] coming.” In this text, Amaymon is recorded to rule far more than forty legions– all demons and many angels acknowledge him as their ruler.

According to Koetting’s channeling, Amaymon embodies “death and decay, sexual and literal.” This spirit appeared to me as a black, feathered, anthropomorphic reptile.

Amaymon has many aspects, including crocodile, lion, cat, tentacle, leopard, tiger, toad, lich, dragon, serpent, and frog aspects.

The instruction and support of Amaymon is of use in working with nature spirits, fire elementals, and the dead. He begets transformation through manners of alchemy which involve Saturn, Neptune, the Black Sun, the Black Moon, the Black Earth, and Venus. He is knowledgeable regarding death energy, sex magick, spider magick, Egyptian magick, Reiki, ceremonial magick, solar magick, mind reading, lunar magick, and working with the forces of darkness and light.

Amaymon is an apt guide for divination (to be specific, runes, hydromancy, pyromancy, palm reading, and pendulum usage). He is a great spirit to work with for astral sight. He can liberate the magickian from shame, improve her ability to strategize, and make her more observant.

Amaymon is a good spirit to work with for protection, money, ascent through employment hierarchies (and performing the tasks required by jobs), and the acquisition of sexual partners. He also offers good support in scholarly and archaeological work.

Amaymon can help the witch cross the abyss/initiate through Daath and he can empower the astral double such that it can reach and navigate diverse planes. He can help one initiate through the entire Qliphoth and Sephiroth, as well as what lies beyond them. Lastly, the spirit is a great companion and teacher for void magick.

  1. V.K do you have experience of invoking demons mentioned in Abhichaara School which is one of the Tantric schools of Hindu Aaiyyanism. On google play there is an application called How to Summon Demons by Abhichaara tradition.


  2. Thanks alot for the article. From my exp, Amaymon has heavy,not agressive, king like energy. Comes most time you call him and unlike Adrammelech doesnt cook you like a grilled chicken, which is aparently an important thing for beginners.


    1. As a demonolater you don’t need a ring. Just be respectful towards him.

      The ring thing is if you’re comming from a judeo-christian perspective and you’re being antagonistic and coercive against the spirit
