Magickal Hymn to the Mother of Blood

{While I am a staunch critic of the Order of the Nine Angles, their teachings are a legitimate repository for real Greek and Druidic magickal knowledge, regardless of how much of their teachings was stolen from Kenneth Grant. It was originally an archdemon of the Tunnels of Set who told me the O9A’s deities were worth working with, and I have found this to be true. One of Hecate’s higher-ranking spirits told us that the Baphomet worked with by the O9A is nothing more than the Planetary Spirit of the Earth. While most of the O9A’s deities can be pretty dangerous, unpredictable, and often times, disorienting, Baphomet is pretty much safe}
Ave Baphomet,
Ave Baphomet,
Agia H Baphomet.
Agios Sirena Sinistra,
Agios Mater Baphomet,
Sancta Regina Rubedo.
Veni, Regina Mundis;
Aperiatur Mushrati, Mater.
Agios ischyros Baphomet;
Veni, veniat ad me.
Agios o Baphomet;
Veni, et germinet anados;
Veni – aperiatur Mushrati.
[Hail Baphomet/ Hail Baphomet/ Hallowed be Baphomet// Hallowed Darksome Spirit Maid/ Holy Mother Baphomet/ Sacred Mistress of Alchemy/ Descend, Queen of the Earth/ Open the sphere of Jupiter, Mother// Hallowed is the Sacred Baphomet/ Come, come unto me/ Hallowed be Baphomet/ Come, and bring about magickal ascent/ Come; open the sphere of Jupiter]

Magickal Hymn to Noctulius, Azanigin, & Aosoth

{This Latin hymn to Noctulius, Aosoth, and Azanigin was written to be seven stanzas. I personally consecrated it prior to offering it up to the deities it entreats. This hymn may be recited one or more times as a stand-alone self-empowerment exercise or recited in pursuit of guidance or gnosis. Alternately, the hymn can be incorporated into or added onto a given ritual. I am not affiliated with nor do I condone the agenda of the Order of the Nine Angles, but I find the Nekalah to be very much worth working with}

Rege Azanigin; Voco te Aosoth
Veni Noctulius, Rex Qamar et Rex Noctem
Germinet Anados, Gnosis, et Azoth
Invoco Aosoth, Matrona Mortem et Magia
Ave Noctulius, Versipellis et Venefico
Ave Azanigin Mater Zuhal et Khaos
Agios o Noctulius et Aosoth; Azanigin Gloria
[Reign, Azanigin; I Call to Aosoth/ Come, Noctulius, King of the Sphere of the Moon and King of the Night/ Engender Magickal Empowerment, Provide Gnosis, and Manifest the Fifth Element/ I Call to Aosoth, Matron of Death and Magick/ Hail Noctulius, Shapeshifter and Witch/ Hail Azanigin, Mother of the Sphere of Saturn and Khaos/ Numinous is Noctulius as well as Aosoth; Glory to Azanigin]

Anatomy of a Czereda

The woman by the name of Lianna, known also as DarkLogos and DL9, was an “OG” member of the Order of the Nine Angles, and is said to be and have been one of the primary forces behind the promulgation of O9A literature online. She writes from behind the account alongside other OG Niners—a truth she tried and failed to conceal. According to an inside source within the Order of the Nine Angles, she is also involved in a traditional National Socialist nexion, or O9A subgroup. She is, as I have said before, a propagandist, “in the most literal and dramatic sense of the word.”

Before she became the only person to ever be banned from commenting on my WordPress (note: none of her websites or blogs permit commenting by anyone), she and I had a debate as to the identity of one Anton Long, being the pseudonym adopted by the man who architected the so-called “Traditional Satanism” of the early days of the Order of the Nine Angles. I postulated that Anton Long was the name adopted by David Myatt, another individual credited with founding and then leaving the Order of the Nine Angles.

The identification of Anton Long with one David Myatt is the consensus held by most individuals knowledgeable concerning the two, both inside and outside of the Order of the Nine Angles. However, since David Myatt has come to renounce both the Order of the Nine Angles* and extremism as a whole, this consensus has come to be ‘inconvenient’ for the agenda of one Lianna/DarkLogos. Better for Anton Long have to have been some faceless enigma than a man who has come to see the folly of his teachings, and by extension, the agenda of WyrdSister.

Lianna argued against this consensus, so I pointed out that many of the original copies of manuscripts which have come to be attributed to Anton Long had David Myatt’s signature displayed clearly upon them. The scans of these original copies have become hard to find, which is likely the work of Lianna herself, since she was and is one of the primary forces behind the promulgation of ONA literature online. This is why it is so wise to leave the ONA behind—the persons who orchestrate which information you can and cannot obtain are out to deceive you, and in their eyes, your ignorance is to their benefit.

DarkLogos posited the autistic argument that these signatures should be considered meaningless and mysterious until they are forensically fucking analyzed. In response to this, I created a fake account and started shit-talking her. I called my fake account “Anton Dietrich” and proceeded to post lewd and sexually degrading comments regarding Lianna’s interest in me.

While it is contrary to my nature to speak the way I did to Lianna, I made the right decision in doing so. When debating an interlocutor of a pompous nature who considers herself to be lofty of intellect, sexually degrading profanities are an apt mechanism for the undermining of her ego and bringing about an eruption.

Lianna answered my comments with the quickness, declaring that I was Anton Dietrich. So, I recommended that she forensically analyze my ballsack, because she had proven her standards for the identification of Anton Long to have been completely disingenuous. #GetSwaggedOn

During my rant as Anton Dietrich, I made jocular speculation about her purported ethnicity and claimed her to be a Jew. While I hold no animosity for the Jewish race, I believe I have reason to think that my jests bore truth.

Anna Czereda’s name is renowned amongst the personnel of the Order of the Nine Angles as well as those intrigued by it. She can often be found debating all manner of persons affiliated with it, despite her claims to be a Christian living in Poland. She has dropped certain hints that she is not truly a Christian, commenting once on an ONA blog to profess that she had named her daughter Eulalia, after a character from the anecdotal fiction of the ONA. Lianna has speculated that Czereda’s English seems too good for her purportedly Polish locale, and I would have to agree with her.

While I have seen photographs of Czereda’s countenance, I am not skilled in the distinguishing of Jewish facial features, nor do I have need to be. Unfortunately, I also did not think to use the pictures to intuit her power level. Her claims to be a Christian merely serve to prevent accusations from Niners that she does not warrant inclusion amongst the number of the ONA, which accusations would only hinder the proper debates in which she clearly loves to participate.

So, there is a logical explanation for her lies about her religious adherence, but what of the lie about her ethnic and national origin?

Well, since I have a grandmother from Poland, I can testify that their surnames can sound very similar to those carried by persons of Jewish descent. Since I have been errantly accused of being Jewish for my facial features on a handful of occasions, I conclude that the falsification of Polish nationality would be an appropriate manner to evade a proverbial yellow star.

Czereda would not be the only person of Jewish or partially Jewish descent with admiration for or interest in the Order of the Nine Angles—I have met others. As far as I am aware, everything about my suppositions makes sense, so I will, as always, reserve determination for the audience. Cheers.

*A person who knows Myatt in real life has informed me that he still leads a parochial temple, which temple would be inaccurately termed “Nexion Zero.”

Do Not Trust D.M. Hutchins

Update: There has raged a pretty lengthy conversation in the comments section of this article between Hutchins and I, along with some commentary from other noted figures. To date, D.M. Hutchins has attacked me, in this thread for the following:
(X) Making Youtube videos, which is apparently beneath true Alchemists
(X) Not having a fancy camera for my Youtube videos
(X) Having too small of a vocabulary, which means I am immature/undeveloped
(X) Having too big of a vocabulary, which makes me mundane
(X) Having too little relevance/influence
(X) Being too influential and thus “impressing plebians”
(X) Not thinking less of fellow black magickian Yuri M. for being goth
(X) Not being heterosexual

To date, D.M. Hutchins has offered no legitimate critique whatsoever of the following
(X) My ritual style
(X) My original magickal chants
(X) My commentaries on Demonology
(X) My teachings regarding the hidden chakras
(X) My personal gnosis
(X) My critiques of the ONA and 218 Tradition
(X) My insights regarding the Sevenfold Way
(X) My understanding of the True Will, Higher Self, Body-Soul-Spirit Triangle, etc.

In addition to this, D.M. Hutchins has constructed a new article about me, apparently comprised entirely of callow misconceptions, puerile fallacies of reasoning, and bold and deliberate lies. I have briefly reviewed and rebutted the parts of the article I have had the patience to read in the following video. As I have not and will not read the entirety of the article failing a request to do so from a reader, anyone who would like specific points of the article addressed may bring them to my attention themselves.

Follow-Up On Vindex

In retrospect, my article refuting the lies surrounding the Vindex mythos did not clearly delineate the reasons I consider the truth about Vindex as damning as it is. In fact, I left my primary criticisms implied and unspoken, and as thus, unheard.

(1) Von Sangettal and Ulfgangr Satanara have both told me that they were aware of the truth about Vindex prior to my public revelation of it. This indicates, by way of probability, that there most likely were many Niners (perhaps 10-20) who were aware of this truth.

And none of them broke the story.

I want you to consider the implications of the fact that it was Traditional Demonolater and an initiate of the Draconian Tradition rather than a Niner who brought this to the public. ZERO ONA members* were willing to do so.

Since the Satanism of the ONA is, in majority, predicated upon the Sinister Dialectic, and the remainder of the Western Black Lodge is predicated upon the emulation or veneration of the Infernal Divine, there is inevitably a discrepancy between the ethos of the ONA and the remainder of the Western Black Lodge. The fact that I broke this story, independently, despite my distaste for the ONA, instantiates the discrepancies between these ethioi (is that the plural of ethos?) in two ways.

(i) As I follow the ethos established by the Infernal Divine, I felt the need to lead the way for my brothers in the Western Black Lodge, regardless of their opposition to me. The members of the ONA who knew the truth about Vindex, being followers of the ethos of the Sinister Dialectic, were entirely content to watch their brothers in the movement be manipulated like cattle.

(ii) I was willing, in accordance with the ethos of the Infernal Divine, to challenge the orthodoxy upheld by my brothers within the Black Lodge, publicly. The members of the ONA who knew the truth about Vindex, in contrast, were willing to uphold the orthodoxy by their silence, despite the fact that they knew it was fallacious.

(2) The ONA calls its members to the pursuit of cliological agendas, which places an incredible amount of responsibility on them to be, ultimately, leaders, even from within the ranks. In contradiction, the ONA kept the truth about Vindex almost entirely secret, relying upon the intellectual incompetence of its members to manipulate them for the achievement of cliological agendas. The result of this contradiction is illustrated by (i) and (ii).

The ONA’s dissertations regarding Vindex have never represented him for what (who) he really is. He has always been represented as a coming savior, likened variously to Krishna or the Antichrist. This is manipulation– in fact, it is propaganda.

A certain leading figure in the ONA by the name of DarkLogos, referred to as well as DL9 and Lianna, has been exposed as a propagandist time and time again. Similarly, Kayla and Chloe 352 have been caught promoting rampant lies about their activities to create the illusion that their influence exceeds its actual parameters. Anton Long is known to have adopted multifarious pseudonyms in order to misrepresent his personhood as a multitude (as is Lianna).

Look at the hours upon hours propagandists have spent promoting exaggerations and lies to convince the public that the ONA is more powerful than it has ever truly become. The praxis and Occultism of which comprise the Sevenfold Way are valid, unique, and powerful, while those who propagate the 7FW are vile, honourless, and impotent in their majority. Beldam, Von Sangettal, and Ulfgangr Satanara (and probably Ryan Anschauung as well) are all exempt from my condemnations of the ONA.

*Despite the claims made by leading voices in the ONA, the ONA is, in fact, a movement, and the conduct and weltanschauungen of those who follow this movement, and who are therefore members of this movement, does reflect the nature of this movement.

For the sake of clarity, I use the words “movement” and “group” to denote different things. A group is formally structured whereas a group is not. Movements most often lack things such as membership fees and leaders. The ONA has always been seen as a movement and it has always operated as movements do. Third-wave feminism is another example of a movement, hence its lack of administration/leadership. Being a member of third-wave feminism, like being a member of the ONA, entails no distinct formal or hierarchic structure.

There is No Vindex

Vindex and his Prophecy

For your convenience and my own, I’m going to flesh out the ONA’s concept of Vindex by quoting adherents to the mythos.

“Vindex is the name given to the person who, by practical deeds, brings into-
being a new way of life and who confronts, and who defeats, through force of arms, those forces which represent the dishonour and the impersonal tyranny so manifest in the modern world, especially in what it is convenient to call “the West”. The main opponent of Vindex – both on the practical level and in terms of ethos – is the Magian.

…The essence of the new way of life that Vindex heralds and implements (the Vindex ethos) is: (1) the way of tribes and clans in place of the abstraction of the modern nation-State; and (2) the way, the law, of personal honour in place of the abstract laws made by governments.” -David Myatt

“Vindex, it is prophesised, will be an individual who will bring into being and presence new archetypes which are appropriate to the new Aeon. Vindex replaces the old law of the old Aeon with our new law of personal honour. It is this Vindex character who will, according to prophecy, lead an exoteric war against the Magian forces and re-establish a numinous balance to the Earth, thus setting the Aeon back upon it’s natural course and ushering in this new Aeon in a manifest manner.” -Drakon Covenant

“Another elaboration on the system and imagery of the ONA appears in the Tales of Sinister Influence, a collection of short stories illustrating the aeonic methodology of the Tempel. One set of stories concerns the infiltration of an ISKCON-style Gaudiya Vaishnava sect by Satanic vampires in order to effect the incarnation of the leader the ONA calls Vindex, who becomes a living nexion of acausal power who will challenge and destroy the Magian society. Vindex, in this story, is identified with Kalki, the last avatar of Vishnu, who in Indian cosmology is supposed to appear at the end of the degraded Iron Age and restore dharma by destroying its decadent, casteless rulers. Neo-Nazi ideologue Savitri Devi Mukherji similarly identified Kalki with a possible successor to Hitler who would combine the latter’s devotion to Aryandom with the ruthlessness of a Himmler
or a Genghis Khan, a new Alexander who would restore civilization. Yet Vindex also figures into the Temple’s sinister subversion of Christian Identity, with the racialist ‘Aryan Christ’ being treated as a warrior-god and an instance of the Vindex archetype.” -George Sieg, as quoted in False Prophet Edition III

“In brief, Vindex restores to the modern world the fundamental principle of true, natural justice: the personal justice based on the rule of personal honour, which thus gives to the individual a genuine freedom.” -David Myatt

“Vindex is the one who will bring about the transition of humanity to homo galacticus and the transition of human society to a Galactic Imperium. While Vindex has exoterically been described as an Antichrist, he/she is esoterically considered to Kalki, the apocalyptic avatar of Vishnu. This draws upon the cyclic or Aeonic view of history created by Savitri Devi, who believed that Hitler was a spiritually influenced man who prepared the way for Kalki/Vindex. The name Vindex means ‘avenger,’ and he/she will be the avenger not of National Socialist Germany, but of the strength, honour, and conquering spirit which made it exemplary.” -Interview with V.K. Jehannum, 127 Year of Fayen

“The pathway between Saturn and the Sun [which is attributed to Vindex], is the path of the man who acts as a real initiate, which forces open the door into the highly esteemed Sinister Place. For some, the fiery essences of this pathway are more difficult to understand. It is the pathway on which the initiate’s emotional heat (Sun) and sinister feeling manifest themselves, where the great sacrifice is consummated on this path of no return. While hatred is the sinister’s man inherent faculty at present, it is also the manifestation of the energy of the Dark God Vindex, as “opfer” intelligently focussed as part of the development of sinister consciousness is brought to its consummation.” -Hagur

Gnosis by Seance

The entire reason I began to work with the Nekalah, being the Dark Gods of the ONA, was that the spirits which were guiding my coven recommended their use.

I remember feeling led to ask an Aztec spirit, which spirit served Huitzilopochtili, Tlazolteotl, and Tezcatlipoca, being a friend to the Left Hand Path, what his relationship to Atazoth was. He answered with one word, speaking through the lips of the medium he had possessed: “Birth.”

When I asked Niantiel, a Qliphothic archdemon, about Noctulius, Niantiel had recommended the deity highly. One of Hecate’s archdaimones had guided me in how I should go about working with the ONA’s representation of Baphomet, being the earth’s planetary spirit.

And now, I wanted to ask about Vindex– the ONA’s harbinger of Aeonic Progression. The so-called Antichrist. After raising a sacred space with Qliphothic energy and summoning Niantiel to assume possession of one of the coven’s mediums, I began asking questions.

“What can you tell me about Vindex?” I asked.

“Well,” Niantiel said through the vessel’s lips, “he killed himself.”

I blinked. What?

“Uh, did he attain immortality in death?” I asked. It was a reasonable question– so many great magickians had attained immortality in death throughout the ages.

“NO!” Niantiel shouted in rage. “That’s just fucking propaganda!”

The Truth Behind Vindex

I found an article about a historical figure identical to the non-existent Anti-Christ the ONA’s been huffing and puffing about. According to historians, Gaius Julius Vindex “was powerful in body and of shrewd intelligence, was skilled in warfare and full of daring for any great enterprise; and he had a passionate love of freedom and a vast ambition” (Cassius Dio, 63.22.1-2).

Compare this to the ONA, which writes that Vindex “was powerful in body and of shrewd intelligence, was skilled in warfare and full of daring for any great enterprise; and he had a passionate love of freedom and a vast ambition.” Remarkable.

Gaius Julius Vindex who had led an armed rebellion against the state like Vindex was meant to– specifically, against the reign of one Nero Kaiser, the so-called Beast of Revelations.

Nero. Most Christians, in their illiteracy, take the Book of Revelations to be an apocalypse prophecy. It’s not. It is a metaphorical representation of a great calamity which befell the author’s society. The name Nero Kaiser can be transliterated into Hebrew into only two ways, one of which has a value in Gematria of 666 and the other of 616, these being the two numbers of the Beast in Revelations. This use of Gematria to encode the name of a monarch is not the only one of its kind in the Bible– Nebuchadnezzar was another such instance.

Sure enough, Gaius took his own life after his rebellion failed. By choosing a figure who was relevant to the pseudo-apocalyptic character of Revelations, Myatt was giving us a clear clue as to what he was doing: lying. And of course, the Order of the Nine Angles fell for it.

The first time I brought this up was in an essay called Anti-Cosmic Satanism & the O9A: Observations, Contrasts Criticisms: “The Order of the Nine Angles exoterically describes Vindex as a human insurrectionist who will bring about the upheaval of our Jew-soiled Aeon and government. However, this insurrectionist is just a metaphor– an allegorical myth which sensationalizes their plan for a gradual and voluntary political transition. This transition will beget the Imperium– the Vindexian Dhar ul-Falcifer from which humanity will explore the stars.”

Unaware of what I was getting at, a couple long-time Niners commended me for my “fresh new take on the ONA.” However, since the following excerpt first appeared in an essay published in 114 Year of Fayen entitled Aeonic Notes IX, it’s pretty clear my interpretation and my gnosis were correct.

“The Imperium which Vindex will create will be different from previous Empires because it will be a conscious creation: the result of a reasoned, honourable, civilized, approach: that is, it will be based upon honour, and will be the result of the esoteric understanding we have achieved over hundreds, indeed thousands, of years.

This means it will not impose itself by force of arms upon others.  Rather, it means it will be composed of thinking warriors who uphold honour and who prefer combat to dishonourable modern war. In particular, it means a federation of countries, or nations, who co-operate together in the pursuit of a numinous goal: not an Empire in the old sense of domination and conquest and occupation.”

The Purpose of the Vindex Lie

Here follow three quotes from the Order of the Nine Angles which will delineate the purpose behind this fabrication.

“For us, our Mythos of the Dark Gods and of Vindex is very important. Because they have the ability to captivate our emotions and minds thus attuning us to the lawless, feral, and carefree nature and quality the Dark Gods represent in nature and symbolically.” -WSA352 121 Year of Fayen

“It should be understood that it is the mythos of Vindex which is or which can be
the practical genesis of The Galactic Imperium, as it is the mythos of Vindex
which possesses the dark sorcery (the magick – exoteric, Internal and Aeonic)
necessary to defeat the Magian and that untermensch species.” -AoB 122 Year of Fayen

“Understood esoterically, The Vindex Mythos is also Acausal Sorcery. That is, the original (non-esoteric) form has been and is being used in an esoteric manner to provoke Change in an evolutionary way, creating thus a new sinisterly-numinous causal form, new archetypes; and which manufactured esoteric form, and which archetypes, may not be perceived or understood as esoteric by many or most of those who are influenced, inspired, and/or changed by the mythos in its non-esoteric (and original) form.” -AoB 122 Year of Fayen

This methodology is identical to that employed by the Cult of Cthulhu founded by Venger As’Nas Satanas in their pursuit of a Lovecraftian apocalypse: just pretend what you’re saying about your gods uprooting society is true, and if you pretend hard enough, you can, by chaos magick, bring it into reality.

However, Cthulhu has a bit of a head start on Vindex. After all, the Church of Satan was working with Cthulhu before the ONA existed, and don’t forget the Simon Necronomicon. Plus, significance and real-ness was attributed to Cthulhu in earnest by Aleister Crowley and Kenneth Grant. If you really think Vindex is coming back, you cannot maintain this position (unless you are an earnest Vaishnavite) without conceding the reality that Cthulhu is an equally viable reality, and that he will most likely win.

Think about all the magickians working with Cthulhu. Become a Living God. The Herald of the Dawn. The Temple of the Ascending Flame. The Esoteric Order of Dagon. All the random Chaotes. And keep in mind, the people who started Lovecraftian magick did so out of earnest belief Cthulhu existed. The Cult of Cthulhu actually made a pretty big splash back in the day. Sin Jones, Nargargole Shlod, and D.M. Hutchins were all involved. Even Cort Williams and I were both intrigued by it at the time. He’s not some jape like the ONA’s “avenger.”

And the sweetest part of it all is that most of the people summoning Cthulhu are from the non-ONA parts of the Left Hand Path, and various authorities have proven beyond any real relevant doubt that the gate-walking rituals of the Simon Necronomicon were Qliphothic in nature.

That’s right. Cthulhu fucks with Chavajoth. Cthulhu is going to kick Vindex’s sorry, suicidal ass, and there’s nothing the ONA can do about it.


In 2016, one of the ONA’s founding members posted an article claiming that David Myatt is dead, of which I was notified by all the mournful posts adoring my Facebook wall. Of course I assumed the Facebook statuses rung true at first, but the second I realized that Kerry Scott was the Niner who had broken the news, I wrote an essay entitled If You Want Me to Believe that Myatt is Dead, You’ll Have to Show Me a Body. Once I had pointed out the obvious, a series of other writers came forward to take up my position. When Myatt resurfaced to say that he was alive, Scott admitted that had lied, explaining that she was performing an experiment to see how many ONA members would credulously believe something ridiculous just because one of their authority figures said it– and it was most of them.

The ONA talks about “dark empathy” allows them to look into people’s hearts and how their “personal judgment” has been refined through a life of pathei-mathos, but both the Myatt Death Hoax and the Fake Avenger Hoax have proven this to be a big lie, because despite these imaginary powers, the ONA is as gullible as ever.

“The Abyss or Underworld starts also with me, as a state of mind and way of living. My dark world starts within myself.” -Hagur


In the same way that one can be out of alignment with a given planetary force, one can be out of alignment with the primal vortex, and before my communion with Nythra, such was my condition. When feeling the auras of some vampyric Niners as well as G.A. Rosenberg, I sensed a “coldness” to their energies which I couldn’t understand. Now, I suspect this element of their physis derives from a strong alignment with the primal plane—Tehom or the Ogdoad.

Nythra is life in a very primal form. It is best to call upon her in the wilderness. She can help one connect to the primordial plane in a way that is healthy, bringing about the nourishment of the physical and subtle bodies alike.

I called her “life in a very primal form.” I think an accurate articulation of her essence, in regards to the triangle of life-death-rebirth, is “deathly birth.” As a spark of undying growth which withers moribund shells as a product and means of her unfolding.

She was patient with me, and she was extroverted too. She appeared to me unprompted and rejuvenated my soul in a new way. In my clairsentient perceiverances of her physis, I could sense a slight mischief about her, with a slightly flirtatious (or perhaps it was just affectionate) feel to it. Her energy pouring through me was nourishing and rejuvenating. I feel like I could turn people to dust with her energy. She manifests both with terrible and beneficent conduct. Yorky has recounted “fighting against the inexorable pull of Nythra which has clung since invoking Her/It,” whereas one of Drakon Covenant’s operatives has posited that “She/It is a loving mother.” In The Dark Gods in the Spheres and Pathworkings, Hagur writes “Let us be friends with Nythra, the beauty of whose manly limbs make us tremble with pleasure, and let us caress him as it were through our ritual dances (Dark Pathways II). May our heartfelt feelings come forth, the se-cret of our passionate and sudden spasmodic affinity for Nythra in the greatest secret!”

Nythra is the Void Mother, the Lady of Terror in love, and the Hierophant of the Great Escape. She’s a deeply powerful psychopomp, imparting soul flight in a serene way, in opposition to the chaotic and traumatizing terrors of forced astral bilocation which I’m told Budsturga can impose upon a witch. I can sense that Nythra has great ability to cause terror and chaos should she be desire it. I can see visions of the abyssal holocaust she could manifest from her ambiguous form, which form has an orange, luminescent sphere within the center of it all like a nucleus.

Nythra is described as being an “energy vortex in the void.” In my vision of her, I can see impressive, black, grey-spotted serpents emerging from a thick fog. The quickness of their movements, their body language, seems imposing, but the cold and peaceful rationality of her eyes is somewhat more calming and respectable. She can empower your psychic perception and impart wisdom.

In Corpus Secuntra, Eques Sinemus recounts a pathworking with a partner to Nythra: “I see a black Sun setting, surrounded by a reddish incandescence. I have the physical sensation to be lying on the top of a hill, observing the night sky. I don’t see stars, it seems that the sky is starless. Suddenly, appears to me a little bright point in the sky, it’s a star. This disappears right after. I see an arched portal, at the entrance there are two bright shapes, similar to men with faded, misty profiles. A man at the entrance of a cave appears before me. Indistinct figures, like mist, twirling in the dark. Cosmic winds whirl in the darkness. On top left, a dark matter forms a black hole. From the bottom right a white blurred mist rise up, entering into the black hole. Now my stomach burns.  The black hole continues to swallow indistinct and white figures, like fog. One last star appears and then disappears.”

According to Hagur, “Nythra’s shadow world in which we place ourselves in both mind and body, includes all that is sinister, positively and potentially corresponding to the underground, richly associated to the Abyssal Dark Mind, entering the Chamber of the Sphinx, our own Hell.

“Nythra’s energy is part of the natural order of the Tree of Wyrd represent-ing the true and complete cosmology, embracing in one united system a physical, amoral and sinister cosmos, hierarchical at the same time. Ny-thra, enormously powerful, bursting forth, assisting us brooding in the Darkness, he stands for mass phenomena, ‘Canal route lined by white Griffins, a vortex of grey starless space.’ The more one isolates himself to Nythra, the more sinister he will arrive to dehumanise the enemy, pro-jecting destruction all around.”

The speculative etymology of Nythra is the Sanskrit word for “eye,” comparable to the Hebrew word “Ayin” meaning eye and connoting the void in Qabbalah. I think Budsturga and Nythra are diametrically opposite pathways of abyssic manifestation: Nythra is deathly life, and Budsturga is vital death. Where tradition implies a connection between Nythra and Gaubi, I have seen Gaubi manifest upon evocation of Budsturga. Attaghot or Azagthoth is the heart of the both of them, a prime mover. Hagur posits that Nythra is the lunar parallel of the solar Vindex.

In Dark Forces Words, Hagur wrote “Nythra is the path between the Moon and Venus in the Tree of Wyrd, as part of the underworld, the triangle Moon, Mercury and Venus. The Abyss, although located at the bottom of the tree, governs the whole tree, as all paths in one way or another lead to the underworld as well as to the Saturn triangle. They are both very influencing, spreading their energies all around the tree. In fact, Moon and Saturn (or vice versa) are the two extreme poles directing the whole tree, humanity as a whole. The Abyss is certainly not a place of death or burial, but a dwelling place for those treading the ‘Sinister Path’, and from there rule the rest of the world. It is only our way of life, which brings us in that area. We, indeed, belong to the Abyss, as a palace forever. We cannot possible return to what we were before ‘self-initiation’, that is impossible. In fact, the Abyss energy between the Moon and Venus along the ‘death path’ stands for ‘sinister emotion and passion’ endowed with great reactive capacity, unbound and free, making the dark manifest in the outer world. There is certainly no room for ‘pity’, nor emotional expression, and tones of love and charity.”

Nythra is related to the tarot card Death, which card is presented with the following poem: “A canal route lined/ By white Griffins./ A vortex of grey starless space./ The chalice spills its/ White blood/ And the Herdsman’s light shines/ In the Chamber of the Sphinx.” That which follows hubris; the consequence of attempting to escape that which is ill-fated by Destiny. Personal destruction from self-delusion and the cessation of self-evolution. Energy  vortex in the Abyss. The stripping away of the self-image that, if successful, will produce a genuine Master/Mistress; confronting the Chaos within and without.”

Death means the return of the form to the basic reservoir of substance, and is a service to the rest of humanity, and the world of daily physical living, when one has become useless through terminal sickness, old age, or even uselessness as a whole. Death results in the dissolution of the body whether it is buried or cremated and the return in one way or another to the originating source, “the Earth”.
