Above: Sigil of Saksaksalim from Liber 231
Saksaksalim is an archdemon of the Moon who is counted amongst the twenty-two spirits of Sitra Ahra who rule one of the Qliphoth’s many pathways. To be specific, Saksaksalim presides over the Qliphothic Pathway or “Tunnel of Set” which is attributed to Sagittarius. This tunnel is forever fixed between a pair of total opposites: it’s the link between Gamaliel (Black Moon/Lilith) and Thagirion (Black Sun/Belphegor). The name of the demon, Saksaksalim, translates into English as “the Great Serpentine One,” and I believe that my audience will find him to be uniquely and especially useful.
Saksaksalim rules the lunar mysteries and the powers of the night, and the crossroads is sacred to him. He presides over hydromancy, mirrormancy, geomancy, nature magick, crystal magick, warding, shielding, exorcism, defense against death curses, destruction curses, divination with bones, crystal balls, and tarot cards. He is able to increase a person’s bone density or heal bones which were damaged. He can help the witch direct and focus her magickal force, keep her magick working, and bring about the fruition of her yet unmanifested spells.
Saksaksalim can help the magickian face whatever she needs to face and teach her to let go of emotional pain. He rules over destiny and fatality as well as birth and rebirth. He can deflect magickal forces and send them right where the fuck they came from.
Saksaksalim very much specializes in chakra work. He can increase the open-ness of the witch’s chakras and proficiently empower all of her spinal chakras, her transpersonal chakras, her second heart chakra, the seven shadow chakras trailing from her crotch to her feet, as well as the minor chakras in her shoulders, head, hands, and feet.
Saksaklim specializes in astral espionage and dousing, and he can teach the witch to psychically find a given location. He can guide the witch throughout the acausal planes, even to such far-removed places that she would struggle if not fail to reach them alone. He begets horse familiars which the sorceress may ride atop in the acausal for the sake of quick and easy astral travel and which will draw her attention to opportunities she might have missed during her day to day life.
Saksaksalim can help the witch in what are referred to as the Non-Qliphothic Sphereworkings in my Qliphothic Self-Initiation Praxis. That is to say, Saksaksalim can help the witch self-initiate through Bapki [the Planetary Sphere of the Earth], Qamar [the Planetary Sphere of the Moon], Shams [the Planetary Sphere of the Sun], and Falak Al-Aflak [the Primary of the Spheres]. Saksaksalim can also help initiate the sorceress through the Trans-Sephirothic Labyrinth.
Saksaksalim can repair bruised muscles as well as bruises in general, and he rules over glamour magick, mind tricks, and the evil eye. He’s said to be able to alter anything, including reality itself. He can spiritually fortify a given location and place a magickal veil over a vehicle which will prevent any unscrupulous activities occurring inside it from being noticed by people looking.
Saksaksalim can hide evidence and bodies alike and he can help the witch plan a murder. He’s a deeply powerful psychopomp whose auspices are useful in any Qliphothic Sphereworkings and Pathworkings, and he can help the dead pass on. He can teach the witch to shapeshift her astral double into the form of a werewolf.
Saksaksalim appeared to me as a black-skinned warrior demon with red eyes. He wore the red armor of a knight and sat atop a mystical white horse with blue zebra-like stripes across his body. He carried a massive halberd.
Saksaksalim presides over inversion sorcery– that is, the use of the Right Hand Path’s spiritual techniques to manifest the Left-Handed intentions of the black magickian. Saksaksalim is a very unique intelligence– the nature of his being could be best described as the opposite of the Baphomet’s nature-of-being as the Goat of Mendes. Baphomet is an archetype composed of opposing traits which have been made to coexist and become balanced with one another: he’s a hermaphroditic combination of a human with an animal which simultaneously exhibits the physical characteristics of mammals and fish alike.
You see, the Goat of Mendes is interpreted as a glyph or representation of the spiritual adepthood attained in the completion of the Great Work of spiritual alchemy– that is, a reconciliation of opposites. Saksaksalim also exists in a state of being which lies at the pinnacle of alchemical attainment– his correspondences in Gematria connect him to both the magickal word (Abrahadabra) by which the Great Work is attained and to Khepri, Egypt’s deified archetype of self-made immortality. However, while the Goat of Mendes is comprised of opposites brought to harmony, the opposing traits which comprise Saksaksalim are not unified in a state of harmony. Rather, the opposites that Saksaksalim is comprised of strive against one another in a state of stalemate.
What follows is my interpretation of this characteristic of Saksaksalim and I honestly don’t know if I’m right. I think that personifying a stalemate of opposing traits is an even greater feat than personifying a harmony of opposing traits. It sounds Saksaksalim has managed not only to manifest opposite traits in equal portion, but has managed to equally manifest these opposites so fully that they have maintained their opposing-ness. This is my interpretation: Typhonian Demonology describes the stalemate of opposites as an inversion of the harmony of opposites– that is to say, in the Typhonian Tradition, opposites-in-harmony represents a state of absolute mastery while opposites-in-stalemate is a state of absolute failure. However, it would appear to me that opposites-in-stalemate is a state of mastery which is beyond even what most Occultists define as absolute mastery. In short, Saksaksalim exemplifies a level of attainment that can only be achieved in the Left Hand Path.

[Open the Infernal Plane, and Bring Forth Saksaksalim]
Simultaneously calls on Saksaksalim and presences Qliphothic energy to build or strengthen a sacred space.
Rege, Veni, Saksaksalim Gloria
“Glory to Saksaksalim– Come and Reign”
Used to call on Saksaksalim. It’s good for invocation, evocation, and workings with spirits that don’t really amount to either.
Veni, Saksaksalim, Et Germinet Aur Chashakh!
“Come, Saksaksalim, and Bring Forth Infernal Light”
This chant calls on Saksaksalim to empower any initiatory working with the Qliphoth—sphereworkings and pathworkings alike.
Rege Aeternae Pater Saksaksalim
“Reign, Eternal Father Saksaksalim”
A Latin chant consisting of eleven syllables, with eleven being the number of all things demonic and magickal– eleven signifies the Great Work and the Qliphoth alike, This chant calls on Saksaksalim to enact one of two activities which he really specializes in. You determine which effect the chant will have by the intent you focus on when you recite it:
(i) It can reprogram or redirect the magickal energies the witch is focused on. Use this to course correct when you fucked up a spell. Use it to fuck up someone else’s spell.
(ii) It calls upon Saksaksalim to strengthen whichever ONE chakra you are focusing on
Saksaksalim Sattimgullor Ontallakkall Ontimgullor
“Come, Horseman Saksaksalim, and Guide my Endeavors”
This is a channeled chant used to summon Saksaksalim. It’s appropriate for both evocation and invocation. While I never ask the spirits to reveal the meaning of this type of channeled chant (because I do not care), but Saksaksalim just out and told me on the spot. To me, the fact that he translated the chant for me right after I finished writing it down is a good sign. It makes it look like he’s the type of fellow who’s inclined to explain shit in detail. Not all demons are like that.
