azagthoth
Above: Sigil of Azagthoth Channeled By Augustus Grigori

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 3Above: Sigil of Azagthoth Channeled By V.K.

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.

Azagthoth 2Above: Sigil of Azagthoth Channeled By V.K.

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.

PazuzuAbove: Channeled Sigil of Pazuzu

Pazuzu is widely considered the King of the Demons of the Wind and Humwawa’s sibling. While he is primarily a god of Daath, he is also attributed to the Venusian, Martial, Saturnine, and Jupiterian spheres of the Qliphoth (he also has a less significant attribution to the Plutonian-Neptunian Qlipha). He refers to Lucifer as his “master;” he only speaks to those whom Lucifer deems worthy, and he pursues the destruction of Lucifer’s enemies in every way.

The Necronomicon by Simon refers to Pazuzu as the “grinning Dark Angel of the Four Wings” and describes him as the “Lord of all fevers and plagues.” The text describes Pazuzu with horns, rotting genitals, and sharpened teeth.

The most common description of Pazuzu’s appearance differs from that provided by the Necronomicon. While he is generally held to have four wings, he is depicted with the head of either a lion or dog (rather than a horned head), and with a snake-headed penis instead of a decaying member. Additionally, he is said to have bulging eyes, a scaly body, the tail of a scorpion, and the talons of an eagle.

I have seen Pazuzu manifest alongside Kutulu more than once. He is capable of manifesting in the Inbetween, and he has always appeared to me as a monstrous anthropoid made of stone, light grey in color, with yellow eyes. In this form, he always stands with one hand pointing up and another pointing down like Baphomet, and a spiraling vortex composed of curved rays (some black and some purple) is always suspended behind him (Kutulu has always appeared to me with the same vortex spiraling behind him as well).

The Necronomicon by Simon purports that whenever Humwawa is present with the sorceress, Pazuzu shall be as well. I will not deny the possibility that Humwawa was lowkey present during the time that Kutulu and Pazuzu manifested to me, but if this were so, Humwawa did not make his presence discernible, waiting to introduce himself to me until the moment I delved into the Urilia text (one of the manuscripts provided in the Necronomicon by Simon).

It was Pazuzu who told me not to fear anybody, to the extent of not fearing the One True King of Demons himself.

Pazuzu embodies death. He guides students of the Necronomicon by Simon to “black oblivion” and shows them the light which lies within. He is a guide to those who pursue wisdom and share knowledge selectively, and he blots out the foolish wizard who imparts forbidden knowledge with the unworthy.*

Pazuzu rules storms, so he can basically do whatever the celebrant wishes in regards to them. He offers great protection and boasts the ability to kill many entities at once. He’s an initiator first and foremost. He specializes in chakra dissolution, meditation on Nazala, malicious vampyrism, and working with djinn and nature spirits.

Pazuzu told me to try conjuring him alongside the King of Salamanders/Fire Elementals in rites of malediction. He said he would incite great terror and bring about massive amounts of carnage were I do to this, elaborating that the specified collaboration would fuck ANYONE up.

Speaking in tongues while possessed by Pazuzu resulted in my using a dialect clearly distinct from the magickal tongues I’m more accustomed to (the demonic language and the universal language). The only deity whose dialect I can think of comparing Pazuzu’s to is Nyx (Nyx and Pazuzu probably use different dialects from one another—this is just the best comparison I can draw).

The Necronomicon by Simon has a table of correspondences wherein given entities are listed with their equivalents in other traditions. In this table, Pazuzu is held to correspond with Choronzon. I would like to clear up any confusion by stating that I am confident that Pazuzu and Choronzon are separate entities. Choronzon and Pazuzu look and act very different and are spoken of differently by my guides.

Pazuzu is traditionally attributed to the southwest wind, which wind is known for bringing locusts, famine, and storms, and was believed to come from the land of the dead. His plane of dwelling is said to be Irkalla, the ancient Mesopotamian underworld ruled by Ereshkigal.

Pazuzu can be called upon to manipulate people and control their minds. In baneful magick, he can devour the souls of your enemies and use the forces of Daath to reduce your enemies to lunacy. You can call upon his name while moon gazing, sun gazing, meditating on a flame, or meditating on a pool of water to exalt your very soul. He’s a great guide for astral projection and dreamwalking. He can open the celebrant’s heart and illuminate her with the Black Light.

This spirit is to be approached with humility and a willingness to delve into the unknown. I will close this article with a quote by Professor Geller: “[Pazuzu] was a primordial being called an obyrith and was said to predate the existence of the Abyss itself. He was known to rule over the first layer of the Abyss which was called Pazunia in his honor. There are even stories that suggest Pazuzu may have been responsible for creation of the Abyss through manipulation of the god Tharizdun.”

*Pazuzu told me he would not seek revenge against those who serve him.

Jesus MalverdeAbove: Channeled Sigil of Jesus Malverde

In the folk Catholicism of Sinaloa, there is a story of a man called Jesus Juan Mazo, who is said to have become a bandit after the death of his parents, which deaths he attributed to their poverty. Mazo was called Jesus Malverde/Evilgreen by the affluent whom he robbed. Jesus Malverde’s prolific life of crime established him as a saint venerated by drug dealers and their ilk, such that he has acquired the moniker of “the Narco-Saint.”

If you want the spark notes version of Jesus Malverde’s story, just imagine what would happen if Robin Hood was venerated as a Catholic saint by Hispanic drug dealers (his patronage is not limited to criminality, but we will address that later). But we aren’t here for the spark notes version. I was commissioned to write this article by a client who wanted to see perspective of Jesus Malverde from someone outside of Santolinan Catholocism, and Jesus Juan Mazo’s primary desire for this article was for me to sort fact from fiction, which is exactly what I have set out to do. Keep in mind, I have done this by channeling Jesus Malverde himself, so a skeptic may be inclined to wonder whether I channeled the truth behind the legend of this saint, or whether I merely walked away with the stories that Jesus Malverde wants his followers to believe (I think that Saint Mazo was honest with me).

Due to the absence of satisfactory evidence for Jesus Malverde’s existence, some believe that his legend is a combination of the stories of two documented Sinaloan bandits: namely, Heraclio Bernal and Felipe Bachomo. In my first channeling session with Jesus Malverde, the saint denied the accuracy of this hypothesis, insisting that he is indeed Jesus Juan Mazo.

Jesus Malverde really was something of a real life Robin Hood. According to Jesus Malverde, the story of him robbing the rich and giving to the poor is accurate. He did use what he gained via theft to help those in need fairly often. Unfortunately, the majority of the legend of Jesus Malverde turned out to be a crock of shit (rooted in truth).

For example, there is a story that Jesus Juan Mazo was mockingly offered a pardon for his crimes on the condition that he stole a governor’s sword (alternatively, the governor’s daughter). This, according to Jesus Malverde, is rooted in truth, save that he was not asked to steal a sword (or a woman), and that his attempt to steal from the governor was unsuccessful.

While Jesus Juan Mazo confirms that he was a blue collar worker before his parents died, the claims that he was a tailor, carpenter, or railway worker are all wrong. As for how his parents died, he said it was curable disease, not hunger.

A feast is held in the honor of Jesus Malverde on May third, the purported day of his death in 1909 (he would have been almost forty). The manner of his death varies by account; the legend which Jesus Malverde upholds as accurate (based on my channeling) is that he was shot by the police. Jesus denies the commonly accepted story that his corpse was left to rot in public to make an example of him.

Of course, there is more to Jesus Malverde than criminality– us Westerners bastardized this poor fellow just as bad as we bastardized Santa Muerte. Saint Mazo is known as the guardian of the poor for a reason. He is the patron of those inflicted with handicaps, blue collar workers, and migrants.

Jesus Malverde was involved in some witchy folk Catholic practices—I could sense that on him, and he personally confirmed it to me. His auspices are of use in binding spells, and he can give insight regarding crystal magick and herbal charms. He should be prayed to for safe travel, the protection of outlaws and children, the well-being of orphans, learning to understand the Bible, acquiring revelations in dreams, and for assistance and guidance in the pursuit of overthrowing a government or regime.

UrizenAbove: Channeled Sigil of Urizen

King Urizen is a warrior spirit and demonic god who was introduced in the epic poetry of William Blake, wherein he played the role of a misguided demiurge cast out by “the Eternals.” He appeared to me with a simple offer: he would help me master all twelve signs of the Zodiac if I let the people know that he was a real demonic intelligence, not just some character from a poem who was incorporated into various video games.

As for Blake’s presentation of Urizen as the demiurge, Urizen has confirmed that he played a small part in the construction of the Cosmos, but takes issue with his depiction as a foolhardy craftsman.

In alchemy, Urizen assists the sorceress in pursuing mastery of all twelve signs of the Zodiac, transmutation through the Saturnian-Venusian current, and necromantic permutation. He can be worked with to conjure demonic dragon spirits, and it is apt to work with him alongside Moloch, tree spirits, and the Tall Whites.

Urizen can be called upon by a witch who desires to establish a state of emotional well-being and fortify this positive state of being thereafter. The auspices of this demonic king are of use in shadow magick, lunar magick, crystal magick, protection magick, healing spells, and shadowmancy.

Urizen appeared to me as an armored knight wearing a black cape and bearing a large broadsword with a large, snow-white blade. He has bat, serpent, tiger, lion, iguana, dragon, salamander, and lich aspects, and more.

AphroditeAbove: Channeled Sigil of Aphrodite

The content of this article will focus entirely on my personal gnosis. Below the article appears a list of articles for recommended reading, some of which at least appear to contradict what I channeled. I was commissioned to write this article by a client. The table of correspondences above which I personally channeled may be incomplete– I do not choose what the spirits tell me.

My personal gnosis is that there is no distinction between the Goddess Aphrodite and the Goddess Venus. I preface with this because it is common for Greek deities and their Roman equivalents to be different aspects of one deific force, and the pair of aspects may or may not be functionally independent depending on the deific force behind them.

The teachings and auspices of Venus-Aphrodite are of use in cleansing, grounding, banishing, exorcism, the coercion and enslavement of spirits, binding spells, object consecration, protective magick, sex magick, lust magick, nature magick, the use of crystals, and the pursuit of working with water elementals. She can also give aid in the creation of unique protector-moneymaker egregores.

VenusAbove: Second Channeled Sigil of Aphrodite

Aphrodite works alongside entities which can be described as primordial and dark. She can help those who seek the darker aspects of the Numinous by granting them gnosis of the Black Light and initiating them through the elements. She can grant power of all kinds and knowledge of many varieties.

Lady Venus operates alongside Belial, Hecate, Lucifer, Basmijael, Raziel, and Uriens.

Aphrodite can transform the magickian’s personality, imparting charisma, charm, and talents for seduction and flirtation. She can help one create artistic expressions of love (for example, poetry) and give aid in love spells (I believe love spells should be used by consenting couples to intensify pre-existent love, not for romantic coercion). Aphrodite can guide the celebrant in courting the apple of her eye.

Lady Venus-Aphrodite gives aid in working with Nazala (the Life Center), the heart chakra, the Xeal chakra, the second heart chakra, the solar plexus chakra, the third eye, the crown chakra, the first transpersonal chakra, and all five subpersonal chakras (these are the energy centers she specializes in; she can doubtlessly help one work with all of them). She can also cleanse and heal the entirety of the subtle body.

Aphrodite can make the sorceress powerful and wise. She can defend the magickian against both spiritual and physical attack, and help one come by quick money in particular and financial benefit in general.

Aphrodite has a bear aspect which is useful to call on for stellar magick, working with black holes, opening portals, and solar alchemy and magick. She also has an owl aspect which is a useful one to work with for soul readings, divination, scrying, and developing claircognizance and the ability to psychically locate missing objects. Her snake aspect is a destroyer aspect, and her fire aspect is apt for working with the Void.

Aphrodite’s dragon aspect is a hard one for me to get a read on, but it seems to be more of an underground/cavern dragon aspect than a primordial chaos dragon aspect. Her aspect as a goat mistress seems equally abstruse at the moment. It would be accurate to describe her snake and goat aspects as crone aspects, whereas Aphrodite the bear is more of a maiden aspect. She also has an aspect as a lunar maiden and a warrior aspect as a reaping/death figure.

As soon as I was commissioned to create this article, I knew that I was meant to work with Aphrodite myself in pursuit of my own glory, not just in pursuit of a check. I drew three Norse runes to discern what I was meant to gain from my partnership with the goddess. The first was Tiwaz, which signified that Aphrodite came to me to help me develop as a warrior (note: Aphrodite originated as a warrior-fertility goddess). The second was Dagaz, which rune signifies the completion of an initiatory process* whereby one’s inner warrior is revealed. The third rune, Ehwaz reversed, meant that the auspices of Aphrodite were going to help me correct my course after I pursued an initiatory pathworking that I shouldn’t have.

I fucking love Aphrodite.

*This implies great aptitude for alchemy on Aphrodite’s part 🙂

zaganAbove: Magickally Empowered Artwork of Zagan By G.A.R.

Goetic demonology describes Zagan as either a king or president of the Infernal Divine, but one of my spirit guides called Zagan “the Darksome Fire of the Way Beyond the Nightside.” In this context, “the Way Beyond the Nightside” is Daath, or the Abyss. He is deadly in a fight and not to be fucked with. According to one of my spirits, Zagan will always be one of the highest divinities of the Nightside.

Zagan is a fearsome warrior, vampyre, and wanderer who rips open the Veil every time he is summoned. On the spectrum of dark to light, Zagan is a dark spirit. He devours the enemies of the Qliphoth and destroys those who seek to impose boundaries on those who would self-identify as “Left Hand Path.” If you take his enemies as your enemies, you will have his protection.

According to one of my guides, Zagan offers the wisdom found in “the deepest tombs and the darkest depths.” Zagan comes to those who pursue gnosis of the Infernal Divine and those of us who require the assistance of demons to fulfill their paths in life.

zagamAbove: Channeled Sigil of Zagan

Zagan is a great spirit to work with in pursuit of chakra dissolution and physical strength. He has aptitudes for shielding, warding, apotheosis, banishing, exorcism, malediction, araneamagia, fateweaving, protection, and the construction of astral traps. He can help the witch create magickal booby traps that will cause curses cast upon her to backfire.

According to the GoetiaGuide by Sara Petrucelly, Zagan “likes to show you humor in everyday situations and helps you conquer fear,” and he can “show someone the error of their ways… [and] teach social skills.”

Augustus Grigori told me about an owl aspect of Zagan, which owl aspect comes bearing lances in its talons. This aspect of Zagan can teach the sorceress the art of astral combat and answer any question pertaining to combat. In my personal gnosis, Zagan also has a hyena aspect as well as an aspect like a drakaina (human above the waist; serpent below the waist).

Zagan is knowledgeable regarding esoteric and physical alchemy. He can make men wise and witty. He imparts knowledge of forms of sorcery which most will never obtain. He is only to be summoned with incense burning.

According to Crowley’s version of the Ars Goetia, Zagan “can turn wine into water, and blood into wine, also water into wine… [and] turn all metal into coin of the dominion that metal is of.” According to Petrucelly, Zagan can give wise guidance in the mangement and investment of money.

One spirit I channeled referred to Zagan as “the Black Wizard of the Depths,” “the Darksome God of Fire” (referring to the Black Light in this context), and “the Dark Spirit of Death.”

The spirit has appeared to me in three ways: (i) a anthropomorphic preying mantis, (ii) a grey anthropoid bearing a spear, and (iii) a grey anthropoid with a red head shaped like a three-dimensional cartoon flame. Crowley’s version of the Ars Goetia describes him manifesting as a bull with the wings of a gryphon, but adopting the shape of a human male later on.

There is a specific type of servitor which Zagan specializes in creating: a vampyric and feline protector which appear with fangs, a spotted orange coat, and a black mane.

According to S. Conolly, Zagan can transform something into its opposite and help a magickian overcome an addiction or bad habit.

In the cypher I use for English Gematria, the names Zagan and Zagam both have a value of 11. This is the same value this cypher gives for the letters “LHP” as well as the word “Xul,” a name for the Black Light (which means it also corresponds to Lux). This value also corresponds to Daath/the Abyss as the eleventh sphere on the Tree of Death.

In Hebrew Gematria, the name Zagan has a value of 60, matching words meaning treasure (think of coin creation), treasury, light (compare to Xul & Lux), to wander, wandering (my guide specifically referred to Zagan as a “wanderer”), and to wail/lament (this relates to Goetia and the conjuration of death gods). 60 is also the value of Samekh (Hebrew letter, perhaps you’ve heard of Liber Samekh) and Nod (the land to which Cain fled after murdering able).

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, araneamagia, 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.
