The Goetic Ritual of Caput Algol

This ritual fills the location of its performance with the energy of the Qliphoth and of Algol, the most sinister star in astrology. Algol and four demons attributed to it are called upon to empower the celebrant. It is the prerogative of the celebrant to decide which, if any, material equipment is to be incorporated into the ritual. Phrases in italics are meant to be chanted and names in bold are to be vibrated. Translations of foreign phrases appear in brackets.

A Story About a Haunted House and Algol

The first coven we formed was called the Coven of the Second Torch, and it originally consisted of three members brought together by Hecate. Of all the Lunar deities, whose torches symbolized the moonlight, Hecate was the only one who carried two. The Second Torch was a reference to the path of black magick commonly called the LHP, as well as a reference to Algol, the most sinister star in astrology: an eclipsing binary star connected to Hecate, the Undead Gods, the demons, and more.

Our first rituals were mischievous dabbling– breaking into a haunted house and filling it with the energy of Algol to basically fuck around. To this day, the house is filled with black magickal energy, and has become a place of respite for spirits of darkness. The entire road the house is on is always colder than the rest of the city, and is usually or often covered in a thick fog. We didn’t know it at the time, but these endeavours were guided by the daimones (spirits) of Hecate.

The ghost haunting the house– the spirit of a woman who’d burned to death nearby in her car– became magickally empowered and, for lack of a better word, “daimonized.”

One night, one of Hecate’s spirits told me to call upon the necromantic archdemon Niantiel to take me out of my body in my sleep and take me to a ghost so I could fuck it. We’d been told that we needed to work with the dead, the daimones (Greek spirits), and demons to achieve our apotheosis (post-mortem immortality). I didn’t remember what happened on the astral planes that night, but I felt better, and my ability to communicate with the dead had improved significantly.

When my coven went back to the haunted house to do another rite to Algol, the spirits dwelling therein had covered the walls in moss, which moss unmistakably depicted the magickal numbers of Algol. I found out that it was the woman’s ghost I had slept with, and she became my familiar.

Under the advice of an archdemon, I helped the spirit pass on– into the nocturnal cavalcade of Hecate.

(Ignore the Fact that I Used Two Different Shades of Blue)

Magoa/Magot is a Death God and the Dark Lord of Ice. According to Works of Darkness, “Magoa is the King of the East, who commands the armies of Massayel, Ariel, Satiel, Arduel, and Acorib.” He can repair and enchant automobiles, and his auspices are useful for the purposes of warding and shielding. He presides over warfare, marksmanship, death magick, and cleansing by fire.

Magoth can help the magickian come by books and bring about the supplies necessary for massive feasts. He can enchant crystal balls, teach the spiritual effects of stones, transport energies or sacred spaces you’ve raised elsewhere, and increase the magickal memory of the witch (the witch’s ability to clearly remember spiritual encounters & gnosis).

Maguth can guide one through the Vaults of Zin beneath the Qliphoth. He can teach one astral magick, including time travel and shapeshifting alike, and he can turn one into a very powerful psychic vampyre on the astral planes. He can help one master divination– especially by runes and by pendulum. He can bring together orchestras, comedies, dances, and dramas for the entertainment of the sorceress.

There are several traditions regarding the etymological origin and signification of Magoth’s name. One relates the name to a word for little stones/pebbles, one relates it to a word meaning “wizard,” and another relates it to a title meaning “evil dwarf” or “evil fairy.”

Magot can empower one’s aura such that it rejects negative energetic influences, making one difficult to psychically attack or curse by execration magick, but he can also empower the aura to accept beneficent influences even if they confuse or intimidate the Satanist or Demonolater.

Magot can incite instant death. Alternately, he will constantly torture his victims/targets in their sleep and will be more than happy to return their prana to you. He can also hinder the results of magick and necromancy.

Magoa strongly admires Lucifer and would like a role as significant in Demonolatry and Traditional Satanism as Lucifer’s was in Wicca (not very, but still venerated by some of the leading figures and influential of the spirituality’s development and ideology from the shadows, according to Maguth).

Magoth can engender initiation through any of the Tunnels of Set and teach the witch regarding tarot reading, lethal execrations, banishing via circle, absorbing rituals of the pentagram, any sigil or magickal symbol, and esoteric Qliphothic initiation.

Maguth appeared to me as a red cross between a hellhound and a dinosaur-looking thing, as well as a red-scaled enchantress in grey and brown robes (like some star wars type clothing) while revealed a little bit of her midriff. Her hair, in this form, was long and completely black. The third aspect was a gigantic dragon, which dragon will appear as either blue, white, or black, but it always had red eyes.

Algol, The Demon Star

“You will not be able to ignore suffering and horror, or brush it aside… The Algol placement on a chart insists upon a confrontation and assimilation of these harsh aspects of human experience in this lifetime.….Algol, like other stars, confers tasks upon us which, if comprehended and accepted, offer great rewards of power and creativity. These stellar challenges are not to be feared, but understood and used in a positive manner.” –Diana Rosenberg

Arabic commanders-in-chief, in times of conquest, made it a point that no important battles were begun when the light of Algol was weak.” -Dr. Lomer

Algol is a three-star system known as the Demon Star, and it is regarded as the most inauspicious star in astrology. It corresponds to transformation, the creation of monsters, black magick, death, and violence.

Algol is the first eclipsing binary that we discovered, and its eclipse creates the illusion that the star is changing colors. Algol also includes a third star encircling the binary.

Algol is part of a constellation called Perseus, which depicts a man holding Medusa’s head. In oriental astrology, it’s part of a constellation called Da Ling [Mausoleum].

Algol can be called upon to make the witch bold and magnanimous and redirect hexes cast upon her. It can be called upon to increase the witch’s magickal powers in general, for it is an auspicious star to those of the Left Hand.

Algol rules diamond, black hellebore and mugwort. Mugwort can be mixed with tobacco by those who roll their own cigerrettes. Vibrate the names of Algol over the cig with the intent of strengthening your magickal, psychic, or wampyric powers.

For the black magickian, calling upon the power of Algol always has an evolutionary effect. A causal location can be saturated with the energies of Algol, causing its inhabitants, corporeal or incorporeal, to gradually attain a darker nature. Animals and people in the area will gradually become cruel. The star’s influence will be a burden upon the uninitiated, but it will be a source of pleasure to one experienced in the dark arts.

Algol is associated with rain and snow. Its astrological influence is like Saturn mixed with some other planet, be it with Mars, Uranus, or Pluto depending upon the author, perhaps with all three in a lesser degree. It is strongly associated with violence, as well as death and decapitation. It corresponds to black magick, black magickal enantiodromia [alchemical transformation], mutation, enlightenment, and plastic surgery. It is one of the Behenian stars, and is thus particularly useful in sorcery.
