Magickal Hymn to Aradia

This is a Latin hymn written to Aradia which consists of eleven stanzas, each of which is eleven syllables long. I personally consecrated the hymn myself and thereafter offered it up to Aradia. Magickal hymns can be read one or more times for spiritual empowerment, guidance, etc., or it can be incorporated into a ritual.


Salve Aradia, Regina Sabbat
Ave Aeternae Dulcis Incantatrix
Venefica et Matrona Magia
Veni, Veni, Mater Stregoneria
Agios es, O Stregha Gloriosa
Voco te Genetrix Veneficium
O, Laetare, et Germinet Anados

[Hail Aradia, Queen of the Sabbat/ Hail to the Eternal and Sweet-Natured Enchantress/ Witch and Mother of Magick/ Come, Come, Mother of Stregoneria (Stregheria)/ Numinous art Thou, Oh Glorious Witch/ I Call to the Mother of Witchcraft/ Oh, Rejoice, and Engender Spiritual Development/ Numinous is Matron Aradia/ Numinous (is) the Mother of Sorcery/ Hail, Great (Female Lord) Aradia/ Reign, Matron! Glory to the Mother]

Magickal Hymn to Tiamat, Kingu, & Absu

This is a magickal hymn to Kingu, Tiamat, and Absu which I have both consecrated and offered up to the deities entreated. It can be used as a stand-alone spiritual practice/exercise or incorporated into a ritual. The hymn consists of seven stanzas because the number seven relates to dragons.
When Tiamat, Kingu, and Absu appeared to me, they all appeared as black, four-legged dragons with wings. These tree deities love each other very much and they are always eager to assist vampyres– they truly long for our success.


Salve Tiamat, O Genetrix Wamphyri
Ave Apason, Regem et Draconis
Kingu Gloria– Aperiatur Khaos
Venire Tiamat– Veni Kingu et Absu
Germinet Azoth et Veneficium
Agios Absu Concennitor Khaos
Voco te Venefica– Invoco Kingu!
[Hail Tiamat, Oh Mother of Vampyres/ Hail Apason (Absu), King and Dragon/ Glory unto Kingu– Open the Primordial Sea/ Come, Tiamat– Come, Kingu and Absu/ Manifest the Fifth Element and the Tradition of Witchcraft/ Numinous (is) Absu, Creator of Khaos/ I Call unto you the Sorceror– I Call unto Kingu]

Invocation of Mephistophiles or Mesphito

{This ritual uses Enochian script alongside a series of magickal chants to invoke Mesphito/Mephistophiles and refers to the spirit by his various names. Translations of foreign phrases appear in brackets while explanations of magickal words or chants appear in parenthesis where no translation exists. The names of Mephistophiles/Mesphito which appear in bold are to be vibrated one by one. If the witch does not know how to vibrate names, she may simply recite them. While no material equipment or sigil is necessary for success in this rite, the witch who has such things available to her should incorporate them at her own discretion. The ‘demonic enn’ or magickal calling-chant which is used to invoke any demon (the witch fills the blank with the name of the spirit) originates from The Complete Book of Demonolatry Magic by J. Thorp. The chant ‘Liftoach Kliffot’ is from Liber Azerate and the word of power ‘Zodamran’ is from the Dragon Rouge curriculum. The Latin phrase telling Mephistophile to ‘Come, Come’ is from The Book of Mephisto by Asenath Mason. If you struggle with the pronunciation of any part of this ritual, simply do your best to sound it out and know that your recitation is sufficient whether or not you get it right}

For a long time, I had been convinced by a simpleton that it was a bad idea to work with Sorath, and I was legitimately under the impression that the entirety of the Infernal Divine was just wonderful except Sorath. Worse, I actually publicly spread that misinformation. My experiences with Sorath had been positive thus far, and I knew a couple adepts who worked closely with Sorath, but I bought into the bullshit anyway. While Sorath is among the demons which black magickians describe as being risky to work with (for reasons unknown to me), there’s a (stupid) reason people are so quick to think the worst of the spirit– I’ll explain and refute it later.

Sorath is renowned for the quickness of the results he attains for the practitioner. It is my suspicion that he originates from Voudon due to the similarity of his energetic “vibe” to other Voudon-related demons (Amiahzatan, Claunech, Bael). He’s one of the foremost emissaries of Belphagore and the Qlipha of Thagirion (Black Sun/Belphegor), and he’s largely considered to be “the Anti-Christ” because the numerical value of his name is 666.

(i) Numerical correspondences are not that literal. Since the correspondences which arise from the other numerical values of Sorath’s name are never referenced or even held to be pertinent, let us agree that the significance of this synchronicity has been very, very greatly overemphasized.

(ii) Revelations is bullshit. That’s why it’s in the Bible. The events which it prophesied should’ve happened a very, very long time ago. It has no bearing whatsoever on the coming future.

(iii) Sorath is not in the Book of Revelations. Don’t even read that shit. Take my word for it. Well, on second thought, if you are going to base your conception of Sorath on bullshit apocalypse faggotry, I would rather you went with the Bible than Rudolf Steiner.

Despite his traditional codification as the cardinal demon of the Sun, the Sun is actually the lesser of his actual planetary attributions– depending on what exactly goes into being the cardinal demon of a planet (planet by the medieval definition), this may or may not refute the codification.

Sorath is often worked with in pursuit of motivation and control over one’s life. He can bring the magickian into Daath and immerse her in Saturnalian rites (I don’t know for sure that those two things were being described as going hand-in-hand). He can empower one’s subtle body, psychic senses, and astral double, and he can augment one’s attunement to the alchemical elements of fire, air, and water. He can strengthen one’s clairsentience and improve her ability to receive visions.

The auspices of Sorath are useful in shielding, and he can help the magickian astrally project to far-away regions of the acausal/spirit plane(s). According to The Book of Agares, he can bring about success and fame. He’s related to the atavisms of the cheetah, leopard, gecko, bear, and the black-maned lion. He’ll uproot your life so you can build something new.

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

The most common sigil of Sorath is has two horns which are believed to represent the two primary servants of Sorath: Ahriman and Lucifer.

Now, if the idea that Ahriman and Lucifer are both servants of Sorath (and both in the same paradigm) makes no sense to you, good job, you aren’t retarded. But you know who was retarded? Rudolf Steiner.

Rudolf Steiner was the one who brought about the mainstream conception of Sorath by way of his strange mythological narrative. In creating this narrative, he appears to have selected random mythological fiends which vaguely fit the description of the forces he was trying to describe, incorporated them into his myths like nothing was weird about it, and thereafter forever tainted the demonological conception of Sorath.

Now, here’s the sigil of Sorath I was talking about. Rudolf Steiner didn’t make it, he just made up an interpretation of it. Welp, here’s another interpretation. The two horns represent the Sun and the Black Sun. See how coherent that is?

If it seems like I’m being a dick to Steiner, I’m still being pretty forgiving compared to what Mephistophiles said about Rudolf: “I wanna stab him.” This statement was made while I was reading about Rudolf Steiner’s claims about the Akashic Records. When I started looking into the fellow that Mesphito wanted to stab, I found out that it was Steiner who created the modern conception of Sorath– that is to say, Steiner’s pontifications are basically to blame for me being misinformed about and spreading misinformation about Sorath. Fuck that guy.

In Steiner’s effusions, Sorath is positioned as the Antichrist, which does not exist. There is no Antichrist in the Book of Revelations: there are two beasts in the Book of Revelations. Furthermore, the Book of Revelations happened a very long time ago– this was the consensus and motivation of the folk who put Revelations in the Bible: it happened.

Now, Rudolf Steiner believes that the infernal force of Sorath inflicts “Sorathic possession” upon people sometimes. One person he believes represented a particularly strong instance of Sorathic possession is Adolf Hitler.

Despite the claims made by Steiner, Hitler had no allegiance to or help from the Infernal Divine. The Infernal Divine do not fuck with Hitler. Ask them yourselves– they’ll say he was and is inconsequential. Savitri Devi thought Hitler came to pave the way for the final incarnation of Krishna. Jung thought Hitler was possessed by the Aryan subconscious. Whatever it fucking was, it definitely wasn’t Sorath, and frankly, I’d be more than happy to blame it on Krishna.

And as for Hitler being an ascended master? Not in demon magick he isn’t. The Order of the Nine Angles indulges in Esoteric Hitlerism, but they also worship H.P. Lovecraft’s deities and thought it was worth their while to plagiarize Kenneth Grant.* It was a Hindu who first advocated for the deification and worship of Hitler, and in the Satanic community, only groups involved with egregious fraud and plagiariam humor this idea (JoS Ministries & O9A). Practitioners of demon magick have pretty high standards for ascended masters.

Believe it or not, I actually evoked Hitler a little over a couple years ago. Hecate’s spirits were right about him: he’s not powerful. And, he’s a dick.

*All information about the ONA’s Atazoth is taken from the Typhonian Trilogies (i.e., attribution to the Sphere of the Sun, attribution to Azoth, identification as a reflex of the abyss). To this day, the ONA pretends to not have plagiarized the Typhonian take on Azathoth and that Azathoth has nothing to do with H.P. Lovecraft (unrelated: read the old ONA article reproduced in Nox & Liber Koth to learn the mystical significance of Yog-Sothoth in the beliefs of the ONA).

amonAbove: Artistic Depiction of Aamon for Pathworking and an Altar Piece

“I will always be your Best Friend. I will do what you have commanded.” -Amon’s words during the initial Goetic experiments of John R. King IV, which experiments were conducted in the traditional Judao-Christian fashion

Ammon is a Goetic Marquis whom Michael W. Ford describes as a “werewolf” and a “great initiatory force.” Rufus Opus describes Ammon as follows:

Amon is a watery spirit with a necromantic cast. He tells of things past and to come, procures love, reconciles controversies, and brings spirits of those who died within the sea to appear in bodies made of air, in which they will answer whatever questions you may have of them. If I were trying to find that fictional diamond from the movie Titanic, I’d use Amon to conjure Jack to reveal where it may have been.

According to S. Conolly, Amon can be called upon to help “bring emotions to a head so that they can be released as useful energy.” Amon can either start or reconcile interpersonal conflicts and aid the magickian in finding friends. He imparts wealth, luck, prosperity, familiars, and influence to the magickian.

Ammon gives aid in divination and helps the sorcerer get in touch with her True Will. His support is very desirable in workings regarding employment, monetary acquisition, and mundane pursuits in general. He gives assistance in shapeshifting, love spells, prophecy, execration, binding, love spells, pyromancy, Voudon, Voodoo, and dream work. J. Thorp calls him the “Demon of Domination.”

Amon originated as the Egyptian deity Amen/Amem, the hidden creator god called the “Invisible,” the god of wind, self-created king of gods, and god of mystery, known as the “Lord of the Silent.” He was later incorporated into Graeco-Roman Paganism under the name Amon. A tutelary god, he replaced Monthus as the patron deity of Thebes. He supported those who traveled in his name and was therefore deemed the “Protector of the Road.” Upholding justice for the poor, he was seen as a champion of the less fortunate. His followers were expected to confess their sins via prayer to him. The modern academic consensus regarding the origin of the Goetia attributes it to Greece, hence the deity’s name “Amon” in the Ars Goetia and its predecessor, the Pseudomonarchium Daemonum.

Egyptian Paganism depicted Amen as a blue-skinned male, which blue skin to denoted his invisibility, and records that rams and geese were his sacred symbols. As Amon-Kematef, Amen was a snake-formed creator god. This epithet, alternately Kamutef, means “Bull of his Mother.” The conception of Amon-Kematef derives from Amen’s absorption of the deity known as Min, whereby he became Amun-Min, depicted as ithyphallic and bearing a scourge.

While Amon was eventually syncretized with Ra, the two are not the same entity. However, they do sometimes unite as an amalgamate consciousness—something known as a “composite deity.”

Amon
Above: Sigil of Amon from the OFS Demonolatry Website

Traditional demonography records Amon manifesting in the form of a wolf, sometimes with a serpent’s tail and the ability to vomit fire. When he takes on the shape of a man, he has the head of either an owl or raven, and either way, has the teeth of a canine.

The owl, canine, serpent, and raven are all chthonic animals. Since Goetic demonography imputes Aamon to the moon, it would appear that the demonic-infernal manifestation of Amen is a chthonic and lunar aspect of the deity.

Aamon’s correspondences in Gematria, such as the Hebrew word for “Architect/Master Workman,” clearly ratify my claim that Amen and Aamon are aspects of the same divine force. The numerical value of his name corresponds to both Archangel and Edomite Monarch alike, suggesting the dual-ness of his nature. A Hebrew word which variously translates to “Religious Awe” and “Dread/Fear” clearly harkens to Rudolf Otto’s conception of the Numinous, wherein an experience of the Numinous (the supramundane/divine) is described as both terrible and wondrous. David Myatt elaborated upon Rudolf Otto’s conception, defining the Numinous as a reconciliation of dark and light.

His correspondences in Gematria are as follows:

97: the atomic number of berkelium; Mehetabel (King of Edom); Haniel (Archangel); Yellow/Gleaming; Artificer/Architect/Master Workman; Ring/Nose Ring/Earring; Burden/Forced Labor/Compulsory Service; Dread/Fear/Awe/Religious Awe; Filthy/Filth; To Shine/To Gleam

747: Ophanim (the Angelic Choir of Chokmah); Artificer/Architect/Master Workman; The Priest’s Blessing; His Being Guilty; And You Shall Proclaim

astarteAbove: Artistic Depiction of Astaroth for Pathworking and an Altar Piece

It is our coven gnosis that Astaroth is an aspect of the entity which appeared to various cultures by the names of Ishtar, Isis, Astarte, Attar, Ashera, and Inanna. Both Stephany Conolly and the Coven of the Golden Sigil had verified this gnosis of ours through their own gnosis before we did. E.A. Koetting, however, disputes this consensus in his book Evoking Eternity.

Koetting argues that since the Astaroth of demonology is a baleful male entity rather than a loving woman, they must be separate entities. However, Astaroth’s appearance in demonology hearkens rather strongly to the varied cultural depictions of Astaroth, one of which was referred to as “She Who Walks on a Dragon” and created a certain species of serpent. Since the Astaroth of demonology traditionally manifests riding a dragon and carrying a serpent, the case for the one-ness of these divinities is clear. Peter Grey has interpreted the pentagram in Astaroth’s sigil as being a reference to her power, as Isis or Ament, over the realm of the dead. Astaroth’s appearances depict her as the queen of the dead and the underworld, and Qliphothic demonology paints Astaroth as one of the Qliphoth’s eleven rulers. Demonology and mythology both paint Astaroth as primarily Venusian in nature, just like Ishtar. Amon is one of Astaroth’s recorded inferiors, associating her with the Egyptian pantheon.

To best understand this deity, Attar, Astarte, Ishtar, Isis, Ashera, and Inanna must all be studied. Nonetheless, this article will restrict itself to covering Astaroth henceforth.

Astaroth frequently appears to black magickians as female, but usually manifests as male. He is purportedly all-knowing, willfully revealing secrets and divesting answers regarding the past, present, and future alike. His auspices are useful in research projects and he can make the witch knowledgeable concerning any liberal science. He specializes in matters concerning friendship, romance, money, blood magick, luck, prosperity, initiation, murder, psychic vampyrism, sanguine vampyrism, atavisms within the causal, shapeshifting in the astral planes (atavisms in the acausal), clarity, divination in lucid dreams, skrying, sadistic pleasures, past life visions, communion with the Higher Self, hydromancy, pyromancy, necromancy, divination with bones, astral time travel, lust, practicality, predatory warriorhood, and warfare.

According to A Manual of Occultism by Sepharial, Astaroth’s legion of demons (the eighth legion) specifically pursues the persecution of Christians. I had had multiple intimations and intellectual reasons for considering eight as being magickally relevant to Astaroth, so the attribution of her to the eighth legion (by Sepharial) finally got me convinced.

Astaroth can initiate the magickian through all ten Qliphothic spheres as well as the Trans-Qliphothic Labyrinth (only seek that second one with guidance– it’s very dangerous).

Astaroth can impart the approval and good graces of powerful people to the witch. He can teach the magickian to empower thoughtforms for healing purposes and the pursuit of monetary wealth. He can create a powerful thoughtform—a guardian of the homestead.

According to The Book of Sitra Achra, Astaroth is the “Master of the Liminal Points of Crossing” and the “Lord of the Dark Gate” who may guide the sorcerer to and through the Abyss (that’s what lies beyond the gate). According to The Queen of Hell, once Astaroth opens his gate and the witch dares to cross it, she is stripped of ego and will experience “visions and manifestations.”

Astaroth liberates the sorcerer of the myriad restrictions placed upon her spirit by the physical-ness of our universe, opening the “Eye of Abaddon” such as to permit them to perceive the truths which lie behind the veil of causality.

While most grimoiric demonologists described Astaroth as hideous, The Book of Ceremonial Magic by Arthur Edward Waite describes the being as a “beautiful” man.
