In the praxis of the Necronomicon, it is traditional for the celebrant to seek out what the text calls a Watcher (not the same type of Watcher as those governed by Semyaza, Azazel, & Azael) as a form of protector spirit for the workings of the book by calling on the Three Great Watchers (Anu, Enki, & Enlil). As I was simultaneously working through the Necronomicon and the praxis I was developing for the Saturnian mysteries, other arrangements were made for me.

I summoned Ninib/Ningirsu, the Saturnian deity venerated in the Necronomicon, for a Saturnian ritual I had developed on my own, and he surprised me by giving me mt Watcher: a spirit who introduced herself to me as Sandral, but turned out to be more well known by the names which serve as the title of this article.

Sandral appeared to me as a small pterodactyl made of shadow, which interested me. Nothing I had ever summoned had appeared to me as a dinosaur. The appearance adopted by the spirit clearly implied that the spirit was very dark and exceptionally primal. Later on, my gods would link a dying spirit to my soul so it could ascend through me, and this spirit would also appear to me in the form of a pteradactyl, implying that the pteradactyl was a spiritually significant animal to me. Later on, Sandral would reveal herself to me in a male form: a gothically-dressed male of African descent– dreadlocks, nose ring, trench coat.

Sandral, being an emissary of Ninib/Ningirsu, is both my Watcher for the Necronomicon‘s praxis and my spirit guide for the path of Saturn gnosis. Unlike most Watchers, Sandral will not fuck with the sorceress should she feel fear in the presence of the spirit. But these exceptional qualities are just the beginning of what makes Sandral so interesting.

In addition to being a Saturnine Watcher, Sandral is the fifteenth of the 72 spirits of Saturn listed by Charles Burnett. In that context, she is known by the Arabic name Dabadlus and the Latin name Dandulez. Furthermore, in terms of species, Dabadlus/Sandral is partially Shaitanic (different from Satanic)– in other words, she is partially of the race of infernal djinn which normally serve Shaitan/Iblis, a race which brings infamously quick results when conjured.

Despite the fact that she appeared to me during the day, Dandulez/Sandral is a nocturnal spirit. She helps the sorceress develop her psychic abilities and gives aid in astral projection and all divination. She teaches void magick, pyromancy, hydromancy, nature magick, and necromancy. Her auspices are of use in protection, execration, and defense.

santa muerte 2Above: Channeled Sigil of Santa Muerte

Santa Muerte is an aspect of Mictecacihuatl and an aspect and emissary of Death Itself. She embodies the Death Current and holds authority over every manner of spirit. Since Death Itself answers only to the Spider Queen of the Void, the same goddess that the Goetic metagod answers to, it is worth considering that the macroscopic agendas of Santa Muerte and the Infernal Divine most likely coincide to some degree.

Traditional monikers of Santa Muerte include La Flaca [the Skinny One], Nina Santa [Holy Girl], La Calaca [the Skeleton], La Santisima Muerte [the Most Holy Death] (and the colloquial version, Santisma Muerte), La Nina [the Girl], La Huesuda [the Bony Lady], and La Madrina [the Godmother].

The wisdom of Santa Muerte will impress the ideal philosophy upon the sorceress and lead her to spiritual transcendence. Santa Muerte is not picky about how witches work with her, but her suggestions regarding how she is approached are best adhered to.

In my clique’s experience, Santa Muerte is very extroverted and aggressive when pursuing a working relationship with someone, providing really cool synchronicities and random mundane blessings, as well as volunteering to receive offerings.

Santa Muerte and Chernobog go way back. They started as best friends, and now, according to Santa Muerte, they are “interested in each other in another way.”

Santa Muerte crushes her enemies with the sickle of Death Itself and destroys the enemy of her beloved devotee on every level. Any form of allegiance to her will ensure her protection of the sorceress, so long as the goddess is approached consistently and kindly.

Santa Muerte can bestow large monetary sums, concealment from law enforcement, control over others, the destruction of enemies, and liberation from baneful magick. She can operate as a skilled medium for communication with the dead and she is a big supporter of small businesses.

Santa Muerte takes pleasure in taking on stereotypical feminine inclinations insofar as she enjoys jewelry, sweets, and designer clothes or accessories as offerings.  Other offerings she enjoys include raw meat and alcohol (especially Mezcal, Tequila, and Champagne). She loves cigarettes, but does prefer Cuban cigars and ceremonial tobacco over them.

Asmodeus and Santa Muerte are friends, and they work together to further multiple shared agendas.

santa muerteAbove: Channeled Sigil of Santa Muerte

Another ally of Santa Muerte’s is Xastur, or as H.P. Lovecraft called her, “Hastur.”

The alchemy of Santa Muerte transforms the witch on many levels, restoring her to a level of divinity unfamiliar to most Occultists. She can elevate a person to physical immortality and undeath, just as she can reduce someone to a sniveling worm. She can transform the witch through the power of every element except water and engender necromantic, shadowmantic, and therionick alchemy, as well as liberate the witch from the internal impediments to her ascent.

While the descriptions of Santa Muerte as vengeful and vindictive are false, she will take advantage of the witch who only approaches her for favors. If you take her favors for granted or keep your relationship with her transactional, your relationship will grow sour.

The spider, owl, and bat are traditionally held to be related to Santa Muerte. In my personal gnosis, she is also related to the snake, the dragon, the horse, the octopus, and the worm.

Personally, I have worked with Santa Muerte in alchemical pursuits including the increasement of my capacities for destructive magick, empowerment through the forces of numerous underworld planes, harnessing the power of the planetary spirits of Saturn and the Earth, the transformation of my spiritual essence to increase my capacity for mediumship and my connection to my Higher Self, Kundalini alchemy, improvement of my energy body, the reinforcement of my natural psychic defenses, transformation and empowerment through the archetype of the reaper, and the empowerment of my energy pathways through the power of death energy.

An upcoming operation with Santa Muerte which I’ve channeled will deal with the awakening of the subconscious and DNA activation.

In the interest of full disclosure, a decent amount of the information in this article was personally given to me by a witch who knowingly and, by his or her own preference, anonymously contributed to this article.

70161770_682262672287761_5419469547470061568_nAbove: Channeled Sigil of Borg

Borg is a hitherto unrecorded archfiend connected to Gamaliel, Gamchicoth, Vaerkuris, and Arezura. He is an emissary of Satan, a demonic marquise under Lilith, a priest under Sarvar, one of Cernobog’s personal soldiers, and a guardian of the Qliphoth.

Being as diverse as he is, Borg is a useful mentor in demon magick, Qliphothic initiation, Ahrimanic sorcery, and a magickal praxis called the Tower of the Iron Throne.

Borg interacts with humanity to help the species evolve on a spiritual level– not because he wants to, but because he’s been ordered to. He is a specialist in Neptunian alchemy, nature magick, the Death Current, Kundalini work, Chakra work, and stellar magick.

Borg causes many types of death, both as a metaphor for initiation and otherwise. He causes bloodshed and war. He tortures his enemies as cruelly as he can, and accepts their deaths as an offering to himself. He can eats someone’s soul and render them metaphorically lifeless with a mere partiment of his strength, thereby reducing a human to a metaphorical zombie.

Borg-Alazandal is the archfiend’s dragon aspect. This is a destructive killing aspect that wages war on the enemies of the dark gods. This aspect is a wonderful protector and a great force to work with for draconian alchemy, abyssal sorcery, and macroscopic alchemy.

Borg-Baeliztaran is Borg’s serpent aspect. This aspect is great to work with for mind control, concealment, pitting people against each other, and magickal assassination.

Borg-Morsapalom is Borg’s wraith aspect. This aspect of the spirit is helpful for conjuring or channeling about Those Who Died Nameless and Forgotten, the dead, djinn, and nature spirits. Additionally, the auspices of Borg’s wraith aspect are of use in death magick, underworld alchemy, necromancy, and necrosophic initiation.

Ishniggarab or “Shub-Niggurath”

Planets: Neptune (Primary), Pluto (Secondary)
Compass: Southeast (Primary), North (Secondary)
Element: Water
Zodiac: Gemini
Colors: Green, Yellow, Blue, Purple
Qliphothic & Sephirothic Attributions: None
Fixed Behenian Stars: Capella, Sirius, Procyon

This article covers Ishniggarab, one of the darker entities from the Necronomicon by Simon. In the fiction of H.P. Lovecraft, Ishniggarab was referred to as Shub-Niggurath. My personal decision is to base my understanding and delineation of Ishniggarab solely upon the Necronomicon and the personal gnosis of myself and trusted sorcerers rather than seeking information in fiction or “Lovecraftian magick,” the latter of which may or may not be a good source of information regarding the spirit.

While Ishnigarrab is a spirit of the Black Plane of Chaos, (s)he is entirely Trans-Qliphothic, having no attribution amongst the eleven spheres (ten Qliphas + Daath). (S)he is a spirit of warfare and a deity of the underworld (primarily Irkalla), even having authority in Hades and Helheim.

Ishniggarab rules the dead and commands horned anthropomorphic spirits which look as if they were composed of lava alongside dark-pelted satyrs with horned skulls for heads. (S)he also governs batlike fiends known as the Allu (they appeared as bats in my vision of them). While I do not have personal gnosis regarding the Allu apart from my vision, I have a literary source describing them in my possession. Theresa Bane’s Encyclopedia of Vampire Mythology describes the Allu as vicious half-human half-vampyre spirits without faces who seek to destroy everything (Note: the Allu are from Akkadian mythology).

Ishniggarab is a lord of the crossroads and the place of burial. Visit these places on the full moon for excellent results when working with him. (S)he is a great deity to work with for necromantic permutation and the pursuit of the Higher Mysteries of Death.

Ishniggarab is an emissary of the Spider Queen of the Void (Sepheranz/Illivryn/Arachne) and the One True King of Demons (Sanatas). In addition to these, (s)he answers to Lucifer, Moloch, Baelzebuth, Flereous, Hades, Pluto, and Yama.

The Necronomicon by Simon introduces Ishniggarab as the goatlike or goat-formed “Answerer of Prayers” who leads or governs “Oppressors” and bears “awful Offspring.” Interpreting Part IV of the Magan text, it would appear that Ishniggarab dwells within “the Palace of Death.”

According to Ishniggarab, hir offspring are many, but their purpose is one– namely, to destroy what he called “the oppressors” of the black magickian in an intriguing inversion of the ritual monologue of the Invocation of the North Gate. Knowing this, the magickian may conjure the emissaries of Ishniggarab to obliterate uninitiated enemies and inimical white magickians.

Ishniggarab causes both mental and physical transformation. He hones the warrior mentality. He governs the instinct and reawakens the primal traits of humankind.

I have had a vision of Ishniggarab as a massive, quasi-dragonlike creature that is very difficult to describe, largely displaying hues of black and grey. Other forms I’ve seen hir in are equally difficult to describe. This spirit’s presence emanates decay, and being exposed to it can beget necromantic alchemy if one is attuned to death energy (his presence feels fantastic to me).

Xastur or “Hastur”

Element: Air
Zodiac: Virgo; Libra
Colors: Red, Pink, Grey
Fixed Behenian Star: Aldebaran
Sacred Numbers: 18, 12, 3, 85, 49, 52, 34

This article covers Xastur, one of the fiends from the Urilia text of the Necronomicon by Simon. In the fiction of H.P. Lovecraft, Xastur was referred to as Hastur. My personal decision is to base my understanding and delineation of Xastur solely upon the Necronomicon and the personal gnosis of myself and trusted sorcerers rather than seeking information in fiction or “Lovecraftian magick.”

Let’s get the pronunciation right before we delve in: KHAWSTOOR. The x is pronounced like the German “ach” and the u is pronounced like the u’s in Zulu.

The Necronomicon describes Xastur as a “foul” and devouring she-fiend (she first appeared to me as male) who is venerated by the worshipers of Tiamat and beloved by the Ancient Ones. According to the text, Xastur devours men in their sleep. The grimoire purports that it is “unlawful” to speak further of Xastur, and even asks, “…who can know Xastur?”

As much as I respect the Necronomicon, I will trespass against its guidelines and instructions, as I think that I am meant to.

Xastur is a suitable guide for travels to chthonian afterlife planes and hidden chthonic realms. His guidance and auspices are of use in working with the dead and the Death Current, as he is an emissary of Imordicoth and Death Itself, and an ally of Shugara and Santa Muerte. Other alliances of his include the Goetic Metagod and Hecate.

Xastur is very much a sovereign of the element and elementals of air, as well as a reaping death god in his own right. Gilgamesh referred to him as “the Lord of the Stellar Gateways,” “the Gatekeeper Whose Transitions are Many and Few,” “the White Priest of the Black Plane,” and “the White-Robed Harbinger of Finality.”

Xastur is an apt guide for pyromancy, scrying, and the use of cards in divination (everything from a tarot deck to playing cards). Despite being a spirit of air, Xastur is a useful instructor for the use of fire in magick– he can show you how to open gateways with it.

To me, Xastur appeared as a floating, snow-white-fleshed spectre with black eyes and primarily yellow robes. His legs were entirely concealed by his hanging yellow robes, if he had legs at all.

Xastur’s female aspect appeared to me first as a ghoulish woman with near-white greyish skin, red eyes, blonde hair, and yellowish pelt garments (sexy barbarian get-up). Thereafter, the female aspect presented itself as a green-skinned, black-robed woman with wild red hair that floated and moved (in the vision wherein I perceived this aspect, Xastur was reaching forward with both hands, and her mouth gaped). My personal gnosis is that Xastur’s female aspect is both more wicked and possessed of a greater capacity for destruction and slaughter than Xastur’s male aspect.

By my count, the name Xastur has a value of 28 in English Gematria. Ergo, the name Xastur corresponds to Kundalini, Thoth, Nathafae (the Master of Eternal Pain), and Sthenno (one of the Three Gorgon Sisters). 28 is the number of letters in Genesis 1:1 as well as the number of letters in the Arabic alphabet. In short, these correpondences characterize the number 28 as representing higher mysticism, the ferocity of the darksome Numinous, and a point of origin (28 reduces to 1). Feel free to check my math; here is a link where you can find the cypher I’m using (just scroll down until you see a hand): https://grahamhancock.com/leedsm1/

The Testimony of Waylon

In order to impart the best information I can, I reached out to a man named Waylon. Waylon runs a Necronomicon-dedicated YouTube channel called The Black Tower. He used my incantations to summon Xastur and wound up encountering both Xastur’s female aspect and male aspect in what he described as a “very strengthening” experience. In his gnosis, Xastur’s male aspect is known as Xastur the Mighty, and Xastur’s female aspect is known as Xastur the Terrible.

Waylon started by vibrating and intoning my channeled chant to evoke Xastur eight times. Thereafter, he used my Latin chants to “bid them enter the gate from within [himself],” and proceeded to recite my channeled chant to invoke Xastur three times. I have never used both a channeled invocation chant and a channeled evocation chant to summon one entity in the same ritual, so I saw this as an innovative approach.

A black sphere with a “reddish-tinged triangle” inside manifested, and an eight-foot-tall being emerged from the triangle (namely, Xastur the Mighty). It wore hooded, draping yellow robes and had “humanish” hands. Its legs and feet were either serpents, tendrils, or both.

The being reached out to Waylon with its right hand, which hand felt like black, dried, and hardened leather when Waylon took it. The two passed through the triangle hand-in-hand and traveled to a large sea of sands with many pyramids, some standing in the sand, and some suspended in the dark sky.

Waylon writes, ‘And he pointed with his left hand towards a pyramid floating in the sky and the blackened sun eclipsing the edge of a particular pyramid. Hand-in-hand, we floated upward towards what he had pointed to. Somewhere between the shadow of the edge of the pyramid and the eclipsed sun, an oval-shaped gateway opened, and we entered it. At this point, he let go of my hand and glided effortlessly to a large, grey stone altar where laid a female who seemed to be in a dream state. Xastur the Mighty joined a second female entity, Xastur the Terrible, behind the altar and made a strange, guttural sound, inviting me to approach. Xastur the Terrible greeted me with a gesture towards the dreaming woman. Steam raised from the dreaming woman’s body as the two aspects of Xastur fed off of her, and I knew that I was to partake of her as well. I stepped forward and bowed slightly in a display of gratitude, thereupon feeding off of the same steam as Xastur, thereby becoming filled with great energy and power and suddenly becoming able to understand the language which Xastur spoke in. I conversed with Xastur’s two aspects, engaging in a verbal exchange beyond what human words could convey. Thereafter, I stepped back and used one of V.K. Jehannum’s magickal chants as a formal thank-you. I then received a wave of bliss from both aspects of Xastur.’

The above is not Waylon’s exact quote. I took the liberty of paraphrasing, grammatically correcting, etc. his testimony.

Waylon described Xastur’s female aspect, Xastur the Terrible, as wearing “deep, deep crimson robes almost black from blood.”

The Testimony of Saurious

My friend, who goes by Saurious777 on WordPress and Sauroc 777 on YouTube, originally described Xastur manifesting as what can best be described as a borderline amorphous mass of fog and tendrils. He would later pursue a deeper impression of Xastur (the Mighty) and send me the following via text:

“So a lot of the feeling that I get about Xastur in terms of appearance is like… spidery in a sense but not entirely. Like four legs, a lot of tendrils that could be vampiric but it’s more like those of Choronzon but very controlled. Like he keeps them in his space and only uses them when he wants to which is rarely ever. It reminds me a lot of the demon that the one boar god becomes in Princess Mononoke, except much less hungry. He likes/prefers ambient feeding. I feel like the best ways to connect with him and the other gods like him are by being outside. He wanted me to dedicate a cigarette to him. He told me to light a black candle and selected nag champa incense. The tarot card of the tower comes to mind; the classic rider Waite imagery, art and feeling to it as well. He says the Lenormand meaning is valid too. He tells me he wants more others to see him as a god the way he sees himself. Kinda cryptic but he wanted me to say it.

“Now I kinda see why he is so controlled. His vampiric tendency is very much a sharing experience like many I’ve dealt with but it is very blackened. I picture the last bit of warm soot at the end of a fire. He is very gentle with sharing his energy with me. A lot of the beings I’ve dealt with are harsh with it but he is subtle and flowy. In fact, his shape and method reminds me of malkunofat quite a bit.

“It feels very cancerian.”

Nebo or Nabu

Names: Nebo, Nebo Kurios, Nabu
Sacred Number: 12
Planet: Mercury
Color: Blue
Material Attributions: Quicksilver, Sand

Nebo/Nabu is the deity which the Necronomicon by Simon ascribes to the gate of Mercury. He was considered an all-knowing and all-seeing divine scribe, the guardian of the gods, the keeper of the knowledge of science, the son of Marduk, the god of literacy, the lord of prophecy, the harbinger of abundance and the harvest, the deity of the rational arts, the patron of scribes, and the inventor of writing said to inscribe the fates allotted to humans.

I found “Nabu” translated in a Sumerian dictionary as a word meaning “prophet” or “seer.” According to Joshua J. Mark, “[Nabu’s] name means “the Announcer” which refers to his prophetic and creative powers in calling forth words, the harvest and other plant life, and the visions of prophecies. ”

The Necronomicon describes Nebo as a very old being. In my personal gnosis, he is a god of alchemy. He can bring about the perfection of the energy body, help the magickian work with their spirit animal, and give aid in tarot divination. Nebo can both help the magickian achieve astral projection and cause the magickian to have an out of body experience.

The Invocation of the Nebo Gate refers to this deity as “the Custodian of the Gods,” “Master of the Chemical Science,” “Lord of the Subtle Arts,” and the “Father of the Sacred Writing.” The ritual monologue implies a grand significance of the deity by asking who does not know of his wisdom and magick, and asking which spirits are not conjured by his writing and compelled by his sorcery.

The Necronomicon‘s praise of Nebo’s literature’s ability to conjure spirits is backed up by my personal gnosis that the auspices of Nebo are of use in raising the dead, conjuring dragon spirits, summoning elementals, and providing all manner of familiars.

The aid Nabu is of use in both protective and maledictive magick. He can bring about the swift downfall of one’s enemies. His auspices are of use in all manner of protective spells, including the magickal fortification of a given location, potentially incorporating the creation of location-bound protector-egregores.

Nebo can help the magickian commit a form of magickal suicide,* if you will: departing the physical plane by way of the rainbow body. He can also help one achieve spiritual healing by working with natural forces and crystal magick. He can give aid in all manners of planetary magick as well as initiation through all of the Sephirothic pathways.

Nabu can help the witch with writing, including songwriting and writing poetry. He can give aid in money spells and augment the sorceress’s intelligence.

Nebo appeared to me as a horned, semi-bestial anthropoid composed of brilliant light. The Necronomicon describes him as a long-bearded man adorned with a hundred-horned crown and the robes of a priest. Quoting Joshua J. Mark, “he was also depicted as a bearded man in royal garb, holding a stylus, standing on the back of a snake-dragon (known as the Mushussu Dragon, a powerful protective spirit associated with Marduk and other gods…).”

*Please consult a professional if you are having these kind of thoughts.

Due to my research regarding, channeling about, and experience with the Necronomicon by Simon, I have had to reconsider my opinion about the origins of Azagthoth (pronounced Awtsawgthoth or Otsogthoth, where the last syllable rhymes with the word oath). I consider this grimoire to be exactly what it claims to be: an ancient Occult manual, so I have rewritten this article from scratch to integrate the new information it presents, and this time, I’m avoiding a lot of potentially bogus sources as instructed by Azagthoth himself.

Azagthoth is the most powerful name variation of Azagthoth/Azathoth/Atazoth in my experience and that of my friends. In Sumerian, the word Azag means serpent/great serpent, enchanter, or magickian. “Thoth” is believed to mean “he who is like the ibis (a sacred bird connected with wisdom).” One obvious way this name could be interpreted is “great, birdlike serpent,” or in other words, “dragon.”

The introduction to the Necronomicon describes Azagthoth as a lord of black magickians. The core text refers to this being as “the Black Magician” and describes him as enthroned and gloating blindly. In the Necronomicon, Azagthoth is described as a mad and uncontrollable lord of chaos.

Azagthoth has came to me at various points in my life, appearing once alongside Chavajoth, the Goetikon, and Nythra (this was the night I dedicated my soul to Chavajoth and the Goetikon). His words were always extremely wise, and his advice always worth following. He is the being who told me to refer to the Qliphoth as “the Black Plane of Chaos” rather than by the Hebrew moniker.

Azagthoth has appeared to me as an anthropoid made of shadow as well as a massive, grey type of crab that dwells underwater. He is a spirit of Daath who is capable of manifesting in the Inbetween, and to be clear, the only place that Azagthoth should be attributed to in the Sephiroth, Qliphoth, what lies beyond the two, etc., is Daath.

Azagthoth has a very special place in my heart, but he is very much maligned. The Necronomicon purports that there is no reason whatsoever to summon Azagthoth, but tells the reader that there are black magickians who conjure him anyways, spreading madness as they do. S. ben Qayin wrote that Azagthoth should only be summoned when every method other than the auspices of Azagthoth has failed to remedy the problem troubling the magickian. This echoes Peter Carroll’s postulation in the Octavo, wherein he writes that the magickian should only “invoke [Azathoth] only in dire emergency when all else has failed and only an unpredictable and extreme event may save the day.”

The magickal system of Hebdomadry, however, does find a purpose in summoning Azagthoth. Unfortunately, Hebdomadry operates along a unique magickal current, which current appears to force the divinities it venerates to manifest in unusual ways. Evoking Azagthoth by their methods is not fun—instead of the wise deity I encounter when Azagthoth appeared to me of his own volition, the methods of summoning him found in Hebdomadry, at least in my experience, led to me encountering something comparable to a child on bath salts, admittedly possessed of an agreeable disposition.

I’ll admit to seeking Pazuzu’s guidance before even attempting an invocation of Azagthoth. Pazuzu told me that invoking the spirit would not only be of great use to me, but also be very enjoyable.

Azagthoth definitely seems to have a preference as to which name the sorceress refers to him by, but he doesn’t seem to know which name to prefer. I would recommend referring to him by whichever name you consider to be the most accurate, or the original, so as not to anger him. I’m going with Azagthoth.

I have seen Azagthoth enter a room via a spiraling portal composed of curved black and white rays. In this form, he was a shadow being with white eyes and some black and white design on his chest. He had a reptile-like tail, a reptile-shaped head, and claws. He made that room colder, and its atmosphere heavy.

This occurred while I was doing some work on this article, which article I had begun writing with much more channeling to do. As I was wondering about his magickal specialties, Azagthoth simply told me that he could give me everything I wanted.

At the point that this happened, I had seen Azagthoth manifest as a shadow being in two different aspects. According to Rites in the Thirteen Tongues by Somnus Dreadwood, all shadow beings are connected (a friend of mine who had not read Dreadwood’s literature channeled the fact that all shadow beings are connected herself). This is not to say that there are no rogue shadows who are denied by the umbral hivemind– maybe there are. What this means is that Azagthoth, many of the Roman god Saturn’s emissaries, the shadow aspects of Abaddon and Lucifuge Rofocale, and the spirits of the Tower of Umbra are deeply linked.

Azagthoth is a good deity to work with for the planetary magick of Saturn, as well as for initiating into the deeper mysteries of Saturn. In fact, he can help you work with any planet and any star in any universe, and every sphere of every tree.

Azagthoth is very knowledgeable regarding astrology, and he is one of the deities who assisted my friend and I in transcending the Zodiac (the other entities involved were Senerron, Chernobog, the spirits of Keraktes and the Saturnine Metagod). I did not summon Azagthoth during this rite– he manifested and lent his support of his own volition.

To be clear, Azagthoth manifested and transformed me of his own volition during not only the rite wherein I dedicated my soul to Chavajoth and the Goetikon, but also during the ritual whereby my friend and I transcended the Zodiac. This indicates a predisposition for extreme alchemy and an inclination to give alchemical auspices without being asked to do so.
