The Ten Spheres of the Qliphoth

Nahemoth
Nahemoth is the first sphere and it corresponds to the Black Earth—the astral realm wherein fairies reside. Nahemoth overlaps with our planet, and any given gap between trees, moments between musical notes, or causal location can be or become a gateway to its mysteries. The name Nahemoth [the Whisperers] is also rendered Nehemoth and Nahemo and the Qlipha has the alternate names of Lilith [Night Spectre] and Reschaim [Elements]. It is ruled by Nahema/Na’amah, and to it are attributed new beginnings, curses or hexes, natural disasters, self-transformation, destruction and death, rebirth or redemption, revolution, psychic vampyrism, personal magnetism, witchcraft in general, sexual power, enchantment, rebellion, opulence, carnality, atavism, worldly power, death, ruthlessness or cruelty, and illusion or deception.

Nahemoth is the womb-gate to Hell. While the Qliphothic spheres from Thaumiel [Neptune & Pluto; Moloch & Satan] to Gamaliel (Black Moon; Lilith) are all considered to be emanations of the Adversary or Devil, Nahemoth is not an emanation of the Devil– it’s a creation of the Devil: a manifestation of the Diabolic whereby the Adversarial Divinity achieves fulfillment. Nahemoth is the point of entry for the Black Light, the creation of which Black Light (Aur Chashakh/Xul/Or She-Ein Bo Mashavah) is completed in Gamaliel.

Nehemoth/Reschaim is the abode of Behemoth. Behemoth is the Apocalyptic Beast of the Earth, just as Ziz/Renanin is the Apocalyptic Beast of the Air. Mythological narratives differ as to whether there are one or two Apocalyptic Beasts of the Water– namely Taninsam and Leviathan. It is the prerogative of the celebrant to determine, based on her own gnosis, whether these beasts truly symbolize the end of the world, or rather, signify the end of the world as we know it– a simple cycle of aeons.

Gamaliel
The realm of Gamaliel/Gamalielim corresponds to the black reflection of the Earth’s moon and is ruled by Lilith. Its attributes are sexual alchemy, matters relating to the LGBTQ, dream work, lunar and nocturnal magick, seduction, astral magick, death, psychic vampyrism, personal magnetism, hidden wisdom, astral projection, protection, shapeshifting, necromancy, miscarriages and abortion, letting go of what is dead and past, night terrors, necromancy, self-deification, and sexual black-magickal practices. The witch is forced to face hidden and repressed aspects of her sexuality. Incubi and succubi dwell herein, and guide the witch to sabbatic orgies in the astral plane.

The Sephirothic Sphere of the Moon, known as Yesod, is considered to have been the Garden of Eden, which Sphere (Yesod/Eden) was held to be a perfect mirror of the Penultimate Sephira known as Kether. Ergo, Gamaliel is the Nightside of Eden, and therefore a perfect reflection of the Penultimate Qlipha called Thaumiel (Neptune & Pluto/ Moloch & Satan). The connection of Gamaliel to sabbatic orgies, then, is perfectly sensible: if Yesod was a Mirror of the Far-Removed Numinous wherein humans could frolick with God, then of course Gamaliel is where magickians can frolick with Devils.

Samael
Herein the Satanist becomes an embodiment of Promethean-Darwinian principles as the Samm (venom) of the demonic awakens hidden aspects of her Black Flame and spirituality. Adamelech rules the realm which corresponds to Mercury, wherein dwell dragons and dragon-winged angels who bear chalices filled with venom and massive keys. Its energies can stimulate spells previously cast, and it is known as the domain of the pursuit of godhood. Herein the witch dies and becomes reborn once again after trials that force her to question her own self-value and sanity. The witch is tested with pride in illusory achievements.

Samael is where the metamorphosis truly begins. The influence of this sphere can reveal the deceptions employed against the witch and elucidate hidden enemies. Herein the witch can refine her being through darksome alchemies and master the evil eye. One learns to see wisdom and insanity as she is forced to question every part of her worldview and purpose. The witch is often forced to confront failings of her behavior and admit herself to blame for fall-outs she’d always fancied herself innocent in– it’s a brutal epiphany, but she’s better off for it. Booze and tears are common here.

Oreb Zaraq
Oreb Zaraq/A’areb Zaraq means “Ravens of Dispersion,” its guide is Baal and its planet is Venus. Its attributes are art, love magick, the incitement of envy, astral projection, death, war and combat, rites involving ecstatic states of mind, turning organization to disorder and vice versa, alchemical rites of draconic witchcraft, all manner of conflict, stealth and espionage, and eroto-mysticism. It is here where the witch’s magickal powers are greatly augmented and she learns exactly how to apply them. Self-initiation through the Sphere of Venus renders the magickian capable of a deep, Platonic love for trusted friends that is often new to her– I always said this Qlipha fixed me in ways I didn’t know I was broken. Alternately, the witch is made to question whether or not she was ever cut out for the alchemical pursuits of the Black Lodge, only to conclude with a new degree of conviction.

Thagirion
Thagirion, known also as Togaririm and Togarini, is the realm of the Black Sun under the leadership of Belphegor. Among the attributes of Thagirion are death, concealment and surreptition, awakening, vitality, aristocracy and offices of power, wealth, leadership, overcoming personal weakness, imagination, the will to power, Its influence can be called upon to destroy or create energies of any kind. Herein the witch can meet her Higher Self. Massive influxes of spiritual power stimulate the Kundalini and bedevil the witch with great concupiscence. The witch is often forced to foster an awareness of her physical surroundings.

The Black Sun has no relationship whatsoever with the mysteries of the Nazi spiritualists– the Hitlerian symbol often called “the Black Sun” was, in truth, called the “Sun Wheel.” The reference to their symbol as “the Black Sun” is an entirely modern misnomer for the icon; zero Nazis ever referred to that symbol as the Black Sun.

Golachab
Golachab corresponds to sadistic sexual urges, military power, courage and aggression, masculinity, and slaughter. The energies of Golachab can serve to provoke combat, lust, bloodshed, assassination, warfare, punishment, and conflict. Golachab is the Martian sphere and its guide is Asmodeus. Herein dwell the most violent and powerful variants of incubi and succubi. By the sphere of Goleb/Golachab, the witch is divest of unnecessary characteristics.

Self-initiation through this sphere is often accompanied by a trial of conflict– but not necessarily combat. An apprentice of mine had to break up a dogfight by grabbing both participants by their mouths and swinging them away from one another. He fucked up his hand in the process– not only was everyone shocked he’d just sent two dogs yelping off, I’m told the fellow wasn’t the concerned in the least about the blood gushing out of his hand. One fellow I know spent hours in an armed stand-off he wound up in out of nowhere to defend a battered woman he’d befriended– no one got hurt and no one got in legal trouble. Self-initiation through the Sphere of Mars imparts an illumination of the mind which allows the black magickian to truly fulfill the role of the Adversary: a sharpening of the analytical faculties that helps her look through everyone.

Gha’agsheblah
The Jupiterian realm of Ashtoreth corresponds to wisdom, initiation, limitations and restrictions, dynamic change, continual motion, bloodlust, opening or awakening anything, wealth, seeking allies, honour, suicide, and the revelation of truth. The realm of Gha’agsheblah/Gashkalah imparts another distinct stage in the witch’s alchemical progression as her Black Flame is further illuminated. Gashkelah/Gamchicoth (which name means Devourers) is the realm of intellectual development wherein philosophy is studied and erudition is pursued. Its energies are apt for manipulation, propaganda, deception, and the refinement of the evil eye.

Satariel
Satariel/Sathariel is the Saturnian sphere of Lucifuge Rofocale wherein the mysteries of higher esotericisms are recorded and imparted unto the witch. Its energies correspond to concealment, the propagation of darkness, overcoming oppression, fear, death, the darkening of one’s soul, lethal execration, and the attainment of cold-heartedness. Herein the witch is tested and forced to look beyond the absurdity of what confronts her and see the truth that lies within it. It was after self-initiation through this sphere that my True Will was revealed to me– the very self-initiation wherein Ereshkygal introduced herself to the other two celebrants and I as the Saturnian Manifestation of Mother Hecate. Within Sathariel sits the True Throne of Lilith, as hinted by her name Ama Lilith: Ama’s a common title for Binah.

Ghagiel
Ghagiel/Ogiel/Chaigidel is Baelzebuth’s realm which corresponds to Uranus. Herein the witch breaks down the causal constraints which the Cosmos has forced upon her and seeks the experience of freedom and lawlessness through the dissolution of her ego. This is the realm of the True Will/Personal Wyrd and it corresponds to criminality and insurrection. This sphere rises in opposition to the demiurge and propagates what is wrathful and evil. This sphere can be called upon for the attainment of true wisdom and the domination of the masses. It’s the sphere of the Magus.

Thaumiel
Thaumiel is the realm wherein the witch becomes androgynous and immortal. Under the dominion of Molock and Satan, its influence causes creation and destruction on a macrocosmic scale and its energies are suited to death and everything related to it. The witch awakens the most hidden aspects of the Black Flame by imbibing the Black Light from the source. The energies of Thaumiel are acausal, pandimensional (flowing in every direction), and unhindered by time. The causal/Cosmic restrictions are truly released by this sphere, and the will to power becomes completely unfettered by personal weaknesses. This sphere pertains to warfare against the Demiurge and it illuminates the subconscious of the celebrant. Its planetary correspondences are Neptune and Pluto.

I will be continuously adding more information to these articles as time allows. Check back for updates – V.K.

Tunnels of Set: Working with the Qliphothic Armies

Just as every pathway between the Qliphothic spheres has its own governing archdemon, there is an order or species of demon attributed to each of the Tunnels of Set. When these “Qliphothic armies” are summoned, a handful of similar-looking spirits will manifest. The 218 Current has adopted and promoted the practice of conjuring these armies as singular entities known as metagods (possibly metaspirits in this case), the intent of the celebrant will likely determine the result. This article will list the names of the “Qliphothic armies” along with their magickal specialties and unique channeled “enns” or summoning chants provided for each. The article will not be listing which army corresponds to which tunnel, or what the esoteric correspondences (tarot, zodiac, etc.) for these armies are, however, the list of sources at the article’s end will label which sources provide that information. I had produced and consecrated original sigils for each species (two for Abiriron by accident)– they’re simple and poorly drawn, but so were the sigils in Naos and nobody gave a fuck.

Saksaksalim is an archdemon of the Moon who is counted amongst the twenty-two spirits of Sitra Ahra who rule one of the Qliphoth’s many pathways. To be specific, Saksaksalim presides over the Qliphothic Pathway or “Tunnel of Set” which is attributed to Sagittarius. This tunnel is forever fixed between a pair of total opposites: it’s the link between Gamaliel (Black Moon/Lilith) and Thagirion (Black Sun/Belphegor). The name of the demon, Saksaksalim, translates into English as “the Great Serpentine One,” and I believe that my audience will find him to be uniquely and especially useful.

Saksaksalim rules the lunar mysteries and the powers of the night, and the crossroads is sacred to him. He presides over hydromancy, mirrormancy, geomancy, nature magick, crystal magick, warding, shielding, exorcism, defense against death curses, destruction curses, divination with bones, crystal balls, and tarot cards. He is able to increase a person’s bone density or heal bones which were damaged. He can help the witch direct and focus her magickal force, keep her magick working, and bring about the fruition of her yet unmanifested spells.

Saksaksalim can help the magickian face whatever she needs to face and teach her to let go of emotional pain. He rules over destiny and fatality as well as birth and rebirth. He can deflect magickal forces and send them right where the fuck they came from.

Saksaksalim very much specializes in chakra work. He can increase the open-ness of the witch’s chakras and proficiently empower all of her spinal chakras, her transpersonal chakras, her second heart chakra, the seven shadow chakras trailing from her crotch to her feet, as well as the minor chakras in her shoulders, head, hands, and feet.

Saksaklim specializes in astral espionage and dousing, and he can teach the witch to psychically find a given location. He can guide the witch throughout the acausal planes, even to such far-removed places that she would struggle if not fail to reach them alone. He begets horse familiars which the sorceress may ride atop in the acausal for the sake of quick and easy astral travel and which will draw her attention to opportunities she might have missed during her day to day life.

Saksaksalim can repair bruised muscles as well as bruises in general, and he rules over glamour magick, mind tricks, and the evil eye. He’s said to be able to alter anything, including reality itself. He can spiritually fortify a given location and place a magickal veil over a vehicle which will prevent any unscrupulous activities occurring inside it from being noticed by people looking.

Saksaksalim can hide evidence and bodies alike and he can help the witch plan a murder. He’s a deeply powerful psychopomp whose auspices are useful in any Qliphothic Sphereworkings and Pathworkings, and he can help the dead pass on. He can teach the witch to shapeshift her astral double into the form of a werewolf.

Saksaksalim appeared to me as a black-skinned warrior demon with red eyes. He wore the red armor of a knight and sat atop a mystical white horse with blue zebra-like stripes across his body. He carried a massive halberd.

Saksaksalim presides over inversion sorcery– that is, the use of the Right Hand Path’s spiritual techniques to manifest the Left-Handed intentions of the black magickian. Saksaksalim is a very unique intelligence– the nature of his being could be best described as the opposite of the Baphomet’s nature-of-being as the Goat of Mendes. Baphomet is an archetype composed of opposing traits which have been made to coexist and become balanced with one another: he’s a hermaphroditic combination of a human with an animal which simultaneously exhibits the physical characteristics of mammals and fish alike.

You see, the Goat of Mendes is interpreted as a glyph or representation of the spiritual adepthood attained in the completion of the Great Work of spiritual alchemy– that is, a reconciliation of opposites. Saksaksalim also exists in a state of being which lies at the pinnacle of alchemical attainment– his correspondences in Gematria connect him to both the magickal word (Abrahadabra) by which the Great Work is attained and to Khepri, Egypt’s deified archetype of self-made immortality. However, while the Goat of Mendes is comprised of opposites brought to harmony, the opposing traits which comprise Saksaksalim are not unified in a state of harmony. Rather, the opposites that Saksaksalim is comprised of strive against one another in a state of stalemate.

What follows is my interpretation of this characteristic of Saksaksalim and I honestly don’t know if I’m right. I think that personifying a stalemate of opposing traits is an even greater feat than personifying a harmony of opposing traits. It sounds Saksaksalim has managed not only to manifest opposite traits in equal portion, but has managed to equally manifest these opposites so fully that they have maintained their opposing-ness. This is my interpretation: Typhonian Demonology describes the stalemate of opposites as an inversion of the harmony of opposites– that is to say, in the Typhonian Tradition, opposites-in-harmony represents a state of absolute mastery while opposites-in-stalemate is a state of absolute failure. However, it would appear to me that opposites-in-stalemate is a state of mastery which is beyond even what most Occultists define as absolute mastery. In short, Saksaksalim exemplifies a level of attainment that can only be achieved in the Left Hand Path.

Magickal Chants

Liftoach Pandemonium, Et Germinet Saksaksalim
[Open the Infernal Plane, and Bring Forth Saksaksalim]
Simultaneously calls on Saksaksalim and presences Qliphothic energy to build or strengthen a sacred space.

Rege, Veni, Saksaksalim Gloria
“Glory to Saksaksalim– Come and Reign”
Used to call on Saksaksalim. It’s good for invocation, evocation, and workings with spirits that don’t really amount to either.

Veni, Saksaksalim, Et Germinet Aur Chashakh!
“Come, Saksaksalim, and Bring Forth Infernal Light”
This chant calls on Saksaksalim to empower any initiatory working with the Qliphoth—sphereworkings and pathworkings alike.

Rege Aeternae Pater Saksaksalim
“Reign, Eternal Father Saksaksalim”
A Latin chant consisting of eleven syllables, with eleven being the number of all things demonic and magickal– eleven signifies the Great Work and the Qliphoth alike, This chant calls on Saksaksalim to enact one of two activities which he really specializes in. You determine which effect the chant will have by the intent you focus on when you recite it:
(i) It can reprogram or redirect the magickal energies the witch is focused on. Use this to course correct when you fucked up a spell. Use it to fuck up someone else’s spell.
(ii) It calls upon Saksaksalim to strengthen whichever ONE chakra you are focusing on

Saksaksalim Sattimgullor Ontallakkall Ontimgullor
“Come, Horseman Saksaksalim, and Guide my Endeavors”
This is a channeled chant used to summon Saksaksalim. It’s appropriate for both evocation and invocation. While I never ask the spirits to reveal the meaning of this type of channeled chant (because I do not care), but Saksaksalim just out and told me on the spot. To me, the fact that he translated the chant for me right after I finished writing it down is a good sign. It makes it look like he’s the type of fellow who’s inclined to explain shit in detail. Not all demons are like that.

Marbas is a Demon of Mechanics and a Jupiterian-Mercurial President of the Goetia attributed to the Uranian Sphere of the Qliphoth. He’s the Chief Engineer of the Infernal Plane and the Superintendent of all its public buildings. Marbas rules over prescience, pendulums, glamour magick, mind tricks, tarot cards, mind reading, crystal balls, and the use of Norse runes in divination. He is capable of both inflicting and relieving illnesses, serious or otherwise, and he holds the secret of the Philosopher’s Stone.

Marbuel is known as the Revealer of Secrets and Master of Hidden Things, and he is infamous for manifesting results very quickly. He uncovers secreted truths and imparts wisdom and knowledge to the witch. A witch may come to know the truth of a matter by invoking the spirit and looking through his eyes—deducing through his discernment. Marbuel is renowned for his ability to confer hidden and secreted knowledge, as well as his honesty and accuracy in doing so. He can make the witch aware of hidden aspects of herself—both unawakened spiritual gifts and undiscovered traits of her personality. He can also engender lucid dreams.

In The Encyclopedia of Demons in World Religions and Cultures, Theresa Bane describes the spirit as follows:

Living in the bowels of the earth, Barbiel causes problems with harvest and travelers and creates discord between people. He is more powerful than any other demon in his cosmology. He moves against the stars, affects the economy, and causes earthquakes. 

Barbas can improve the witch’s astral hearing and magickal memory, and he can impart the ability to psychically detect unknown locations or missing objects. He rules over good luck and gambling alike. He can bestow honors upon the witch and produce monetary gain for her. Grimoiric demonology claims that Barbas can cause men to change shapes, but I honestly don’t know what to make of that shit.

Marbuel is one of the seven Phantoms of Flame as well as the Patron of Artisans.  He assists poor mechanics and architects, helping them carry out their contracts such that they produce accomplishments outside the range of ordinary human ability. He’s listed as one of the seven Chief Dukes of Hell alongside Azael, the Leader of the Watchers, and Mesphito, the Keeper of the Book of Death.

While some have postulated that Barbason, a demon from one of Shakespeare’s plays, is the same entity as Marbas, Mesphito (Mephistophiles) told me this wasn’t the case.

The descriptions of Marbas which appear in grimoires modern and old alike, right-handed and black magickal alike, give praise to his renowned honesty. The first time I spoke to him, he gave unrequested yet much appreciated advice for the composition of two rituals I had yet to finish writing and one I had yet to get started on. Once the conversation was, in my opinion, satisfactorily finished, he abruptly gave me his insights into a personal trouble of mine. A black magickal priestess by the name of Akelta has also attested to these characteristics of his, expressing amazement at how helpful he is in her rites to heal others, as well as at his honesty when she asks him to heal someone that he simply cannot.

Barbas can give aid in the Initiatory Sphereworkings of the Earth, the Moon, and the Sun without involving Sephirothic forces, and he can also help initiate the witch through the element of water. Capable of casting very effective maledictions, he absolutely loves children and has a knack for enacting violence against those that would molest them.

Barbuel specializes in astral combat. His auspices are useful in the endeavors of shielding, warding, banishing, and exorcism. He’s a master of all arts who can teach any handicraft or mechanical trade– in fact, it’s said that he can teach more in an instant than a group of masters could in twenty years. He can make the witch a better fighter and a better driver, and he can teach her the mechanics of the human body.

Marbas rules over the seas, all the waters, and all the lifeforms within them. He is attributed to the Qliphothic Sphere known as Ghagiel (Uranus/Beelzebuth) and the Qliphothic Tunnel ruled by A’ano’nin. This tunnel is related to the fifteenth tarot card known as the Devil and has a planetary attribution to Saturn. This pathway spans from Thagirion (Black Sun/Belfegore) to Samael (Mercury/Adrammelech) and is related to the Witch’s Sabbat. This stone of this path is the Black Diamond– the variate of the Philosopher’s Stone attainable through demonic alchemy.

According to grimoiric demonology, Marbas generally appears as a great lion or wild boar, to later adopt the form of a human male when coerced into so doing. His adoption of the form of a lion is more commonly recorded than his manifestation as a bore, and it is said that he will adopt specific forms in conformity with the black magickian’s desires. I made sure not to study his appearance prior to my first evocation of him so that I would have no presuppositions of his appearance for him to conform to, which makes it interesting that he appeared to have something resembling the head of a lion when he showed himself to me. Other demonographies depict him manifesting as a master workman wearing an apron.

IMG_0240

Radahel is a necromantic archdemon of the Saturnian Qlipha who specializes in lethal and non-lethal malediction alike and has aptitudes with multiple methods of divination. He rules the True Will and he can help initiate the witch through the Planetary Sphere of the Earth.* He can impart wisdom, intuition, diligence, and maturity to the magickian.

*The Planetary Sphere of the Earth is indeed quite different from Nahemoth. Yes, you can initiate yourself through the Sphere of the Earth without using the Sephiroth at all.

Radahel rules the cycle of reincarnation, and his auspices are useful in both necromancy and death magick. The Book of Sitra Ahra refers to him as “the Conquering and Dominating One of [Sathariel].” He can make you a better lay and a better flirt, and for some reason, he can enchant a chalice better than just about any other demon I’ve ever seen do it.

Radahel specializes in skrying, pyromancy, and divination by runes. He can modify the astral double of the witch by giving it either a retractable pair of large, ravenlike wings, or long, fetid-looking claws which really look like they could do some damage in a fight.

While Cimeries is the Patron Demon of Soldiers, Radahel holds the military in contempt. He told me he protects children and soldiers who were dishonorably discharged. While I know that demons are individuals, I’ve begun to wonder whether Cymeries likes the soldiers but not how the military treats them.

According to Radahel, graveyards and crossroads are powerful locations for rituals to him, and human corpses are very helpful in calling upon him. He teaches the witch to cleanse by water and he can help her build up her muscles.

Before I evoked Radahel for the first time, I took a second to feel his astral signature out. His energy was light blue. It felt playful, so I looked deeper, and it felt kind, and I looked a little deepter until I saw the latent viciousness inside him. I proceeded with the evocation, and he appeared visibly in front of me. He wore a red cloak with the hood drawn up. His face was covered by a shiny mask with horns—reminiscient of the masks rich people wear at parties in movies. He was nine feet tall. Just as I sensed playfulness and subtle kindness, and there was viciousness beneath, the mask had a jocular smile on it. I’m guessing I wouldn’t like what I’d see if he decided to take off the mask. He told me that the horns on the mask weren’t just decorative—he needed a mask with horns, or it wouldn’t have fit him. So the playful exterior wasn’t a ruse—he is legitimately funny and charistmatic, and the jokes he told were very light-hearted in nature. He has a capacity for viciousness to the point of sadism, but he really was a pleasant fellow.

Radahel told me he’d been observing me for a long time—albeit only once in a while. He told me he’d been present when I finally conquered my fear of heights for good– it was my first cliff diving trip.

His anecdote made a lot of sense. I was the only dude there who was afraid of heights, and yet somehow, neither of the dudes, one of whom was a Marine, and both of whom had already dived off that same cliff on a prior occasion, were willing to jump first. So I did, with no hesitation. Now I know who to thank for that.

Curiel

Rank: Prince; Chief Duke; Chief President
Superior: Aseliel; Symiel
Legions: 40
Element: Air
Direction: East; North
D/N: Nocturnal
Qlipha: Thaumiel (Neptune & Pluto/Moloch & Satan)
Planet: Saturn (Primary)
Tunnel of Set: 12/28 (Gamaliel-A’arab Zaraq)

Curiel is an aerial demon and a predatory spirit with an infamously stubborn disposition. He presides over dark magick, sanguine vampyrism, ice magick, pyromancy, divination via pendulum, the mysteries of the moon, and nocturnal magick. His auspices are useful in shielding and the construction of wards.

Curiel is a predatory spirit of Saturn, an aerial demon, and a ruler of the night with an infamously stubborn disposition– at least amongst white magickians who would make of him a slave. He presides over dark magick, sanguine vampyrism, ice magick, pyromancy, divination via pendulum, the mysteries of the moon, and nocturnal magick. His auspices are useful in shielding and the construction of wards.

Curiel went entirely unacknowledged by the medieval grimoire tradition with the exception of a single text. Ars Theurgia relates Curiel’s appointment to the rank of Chief Duke under King Symiel and to the rank of Chief President under a Demonic Prince named Aseliel. This makes Curiel a Chief Duke of the North and a Chief President of the East.

Ten of the dukes in service to King Symiel are attributed to the day while the other ten beneath him (including Curiel) are attributed to the night. In his station as one duke among twenty, Curiel presides over forty demonic legions. In his other station as a Chief President under Aseliel, he presides over thirty principal spirits alongside twenty lesser spirits.

But of course, I was not aware of Curiel’s recorded positions in the infernal hierarchy when I first communed with him. As odd as it may seem, I prefer to know as little as possible about a demon before I summon them for the first time. That way, I can get a personal gnosis of the spirit, and it’s easier to attain insights into the spirit when you don’t have preconceptions which could make you doubt your gnosis or your channeling abilities.

Curiel introduced himself to me as a Prince of Demons. Since presidents are not often promoted to the rank of prince, this third rank of his suggests an involvement in an infernal hierarchy that went uncatalogued by the magickal demonology of the the Dark Age grimoires. (Note: it is my tentative opinion that an innumerable collective of spirits unbound by mortality and causality alike would be more likely to operate in conformity with multiple separate yet coexistent hierarchies than adhere to singular chain of command).

Curiel is attributed to the Qlipha of Thaumiel (Neptune & Pluto/Moloch & Satan) as well as to the Qliphothic Pathway of Aquarius. Like almost all of the demons I’ve written about, Curiel’s planetary attribution outside of the Qliphoth doesn’t match the planetary influence of the Qlipha he is attributed to (for example, Asmodeus rules the Qlipha of Mars, and yet the Goetia attributes him to the Sun). Nonetheless, a pattern emerges when his Qliphothic attribution to the Nethermost Sphere is connected to his Planetary affiliation with the most adversarial planet in our astrology.

The Qliphothic Pathway or “Tunnel of Set” that Curiel is attributed to stretches between the Qliphothic Spheres of Gamaliel (Black Moon/Lilith) and Oreb Mavet (Venus/Ba’al). The tarot attribution for the Tunnel of Set that he’s assigned to is the Star (Atu XVII) and the archfiend presiding over the tunnel is known as Tzuflifu. The demonic species native to the Pathway of Aquarius is called the Behemiron or “the Bestial Ones.”

When I communed with Curiel, he manifested in the form of a black-robed sorcerer with dark brown skin and a pair of short horns adorning his bald head. His eyes were red entirely– no pupils, no irises (you get the idea).

Keep in mind, demons appear differently to everyone who summons them unless the witch has presuppositions for the spirit to conform its appearance to. Now as far as I’m aware, there are no recordings of Curiel’s appearance outside of this very article, so of course, I had no presuppositions. Ergo, Curiel did what demons do– he adopted an appearance particular to me, and the appearance he chose served to symbolize his nature in a way that I could understand.

I didn’t think about it until a week after I saw him: the dude looks just like Cain looked when Cain appeared to my prior apprentices and I. Dark skin, entirely red eyes, and a horned face. Some mythological lore purports that the Mark of Cain was a pair of horns. Curiel appeared with a pair of horns– significantly shorter horns than Cain had. Curiel even put on black wizard robes just to make it more obvious.

I think that Curiel used to be a human. He completed the Great Work via black magick (the hint was in the robes) and became an Ascended Master in death, freed from the cycle of reincarnation. And just like Cain (also known as Caym or Camio), Curiel became a demon as a product of his alchemical pursuits.*

*Loosely speaking, demons are a particular species of spirit, and so are, for comparison, ghosts. What makes a ghost a ghost is the type of energy which it’s composed of– a ghost is a ghost because it’s comprised of a type of energy we call the Death Essence. A demon is a spirit comprised of a type of energy we can describe as Qliphothic or infernal. The soul of a human witch will become increasingly demonic the more she practices Goetic and Qliphothic sorcery– mages become likened unto the spirits that they surround themselves with. When I say that Curiel became a demon via the alchemy of black magick, this transition most likely occurred a while after his attainment of immortality in death.

Sorath

Direction: North
Planet: Sun
Primary Qlipha: Thagirion (Black Sun/Belphagore)
Secondary Qlipha: Golachab (Mars/Asmodeus)
Greek Vowel: Iota
Color: Yellow, Gold
Psychology: Id; Unknowable Mind
Infernal Letter: Z
Shape: Hexagon
Gematria: 666
Attributions: Frankincense, Gold

While many demons will place adversities in the life of the sorceress to strengthen her in preparation for the trials to come, Sorath does so irrationally, making him the only demon I tell people not to work with– he’s similar to Azathoth in this regard. He’s kinda like Lucifer, but while Lucifer can be a dick, Sorath is a straight-up asshole, and I do say that with respect.

would end the article here, but none of y’all fuckin listen to my salty ass, so we’re doing this.

Sorath is renowned for the quickness of the results he attains for the practitioner. It is my suspicion that he originates from Voudon due to the similarity of his energetic “vibe” to other Voudon-related demons (Amiahzatan, Claunech, Bael). He’s the cardinal demon of the Sun and one of the foremost emissaries of Belphagore and the Qlipha of Thagirion (Black Sun/Belphegor), and he’s largely considered to be the Anti-Christ.

The auspices of Sorath are useful in shielding, and he can help the magickian astrally project to far-away regions of the acausal/spirit plane(s). According to The Book of Agares, he can bring about success and fame. He’s related to the atavisms of the cheetah, leopard, gecko, bear, and the black-maned lion. He’ll uproot your life so you can build something new, but he really doesn’t give a damn whether or not you accomplish your endeavors. The more Sorath likes you (and he really likes me), the more he dislikes you, and the more he acts like he dislikes you– like he respects your ability to take it or something.

Sorath always spoke to me in a rather ghetto manner. Despite the JoS’s allegation that he’s of “Nordic” disposition, he definitely had the voice of a black male when he communicated with me. According to Practical Planetary Magick, “Sorath has a large and full body or great stature. His skin is reddish with a gold tinge. He moves swiftly, as lightning. The sign of his appearance is a tendency for the magician to start sweating.”
