The Draconian Sacrament of Sitra Achara

{This is a very short ritual which calls upon the Azerate and the guiding spirits, to which spirits I have ascribed the invented magickal name Apsidotheoi, of Drakosophia– the undercurrent of Western black magick. Octinomos is a name for Baphomet, used here as a glyph for adepthood, and “the Numinous” is a synonym for “the Divine”  which incorporates both beautiful and terrible aspects. Azerate, Havayoth, El Acher, and Deus Alienus are names for the Elevenfold Divinity of the Qliphoth, and Belia’al, Qemetiel, and Gothiel are the Archdemonic Divinities which preside over the Three Veils Before Samael. Self-identification with the divine is a practice of Egyptian magick which was incorporated into Greek magick and has been incorporated here. “The Great Dragon” is a name for the entirety of the universe. The phrase in italics is meant to be chanted, and translations of foreign phrases appear in brackets}

The Thursic Mass of Muspell

{This ritual calls upon Surtr in Enochian to help the sorcerer evoke the fire giants of Muspellheim. The name vibration formula used to call forth the fire giants is composed partially of traditional titles for the fire giants and partially of channeled magickally-charged names for the same, which channeled names are spelled such that they may be most easily pronounced (just read it like a redneck would). It is up to the witch to determine which materials and equipment, if any, she will/can bring to the ritual}

Magickal Hymn to the Infernal Divine

Magickal hymns can be used as spiritual exercises in and of themselves, being recited for either guidance or self-empowerment, or they can be incorporated into rituals. This hymn calls out to some of the most prominent among the Infernal Divine.

First, the term Drakosophia is a moniker for the black magickal current which underlies all paradigms of LHP demon magick– from Traditional Demonolatry to Luciferian Atheism. It’s inspired by the term Theosophia, being the concept of a single undercurrent beneath all religion. This is not dualism– I am certain that Drakosophia is just the aspect of Theosophia that we of the Black Lodge work with together, whether we know it or not.

72 Spirits of the Goetia are entreated. The 72 once appeared to my mentor as a single dragon, and “Goetikon” is one of the invented magickal names I have consecrated for reference to this entity.

Thereafter, the 11 Gods of the Qliphoth, known as Chavajoth/Havayoth and the Azerate or Hendekatheon is entreated.

Thereafter, the Nine Demonic Divinities adulated by most Traditional Demonolaters, which group of nine is derived from the Dukante Hierarchy of Demonology, is named and entreated one by one. The nine are as follows: Verraine/Verrine, Amducious, Lucifer/Lumial, Eurynomous, Flereous/Haures, Ustrina, Leviathan, Unsere, Beliar/Belias (normally Belial), and Satanas/Sathanel (normally Satanas).

The Qliphoth or Kliffoth as a whole is entreated, and lastly, the 22 Ruling Archdemons of the “Tunnels of Set,” being the pathways between the ten spheres of the Qliphoth, are entreated. I needed a catch-all moniker for the lot of them, so I came up with Kelippadaimones. It’s nowhere near etymologically sound, but it serves its purposes.
The hymn consists of 11 stanzas, it calls unto very many of the most prominent entities venerated in demon magick, so not only can it be used in many different ways, its use develops a rapport with the Infernal Divine. That is to say, using it in magick is a convenient and useful way for the witch to strengthen her connection to the entities entreated.

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.

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]

IMG_0435This is the sigil I made for the group of deities consisting of Qingu, Tiamat, and Apsu. I have two invented magickal names for this group: “Qimurarun” and “Aphinamte.”

Marbas is a Demon of Mechanics and a Jupiterian-Mercurial President of the Goetia attributed to the Uranian Sphere of the Qliphoth. He’s the Chief Engineer of the Infernal Plane and the Superintendent of all its public buildings. Marbas rules over prescience, pendulums, glamour magick, mind tricks, tarot cards, mind reading, crystal balls, and the use of Norse runes in divination. He is capable of both inflicting and relieving illnesses, serious or otherwise, and he holds the secret of the Philosopher’s Stone.

Marbuel is known as the Revealer of Secrets and Master of Hidden Things, and he is infamous for manifesting results very quickly. He uncovers secreted truths and imparts wisdom and knowledge to the witch. A witch may come to know the truth of a matter by invoking the spirit and looking through his eyes—deducing through his discernment. Marbuel is renowned for his ability to confer hidden and secreted knowledge, as well as his honesty and accuracy in doing so. He can make the witch aware of hidden aspects of herself—both unawakened spiritual gifts and undiscovered traits of her personality. He can also engender lucid dreams.

In The Encyclopedia of Demons in World Religions and Cultures, Theresa Bane describes the spirit as follows:

Living in the bowels of the earth, Barbiel causes problems with harvest and travelers and creates discord between people. He is more powerful than any other demon in his cosmology. He moves against the stars, affects the economy, and causes earthquakes. 

Barbas can improve the witch’s astral hearing and magickal memory, and he can impart the ability to psychically detect unknown locations or missing objects. He rules over good luck and gambling alike. He can bestow honors upon the witch and produce monetary gain for her. Grimoiric demonology claims that Barbas can cause men to change shapes, but I honestly don’t know what to make of that shit.

Marbuel is one of the seven Phantoms of Flame as well as the Patron of Artisans.  He assists poor mechanics and architects, helping them carry out their contracts such that they produce accomplishments outside the range of ordinary human ability. He’s listed as one of the seven Chief Dukes of Hell alongside Azael, the Leader of the Watchers, and Mesphito, the Keeper of the Book of Death.

While some have postulated that Barbason, a demon from one of Shakespeare’s plays, is the same entity as Marbas, Mesphito (Mephistophiles) told me this wasn’t the case.

The descriptions of Marbas which appear in grimoires modern and old alike, right-handed and black magickal alike, give praise to his renowned honesty. The first time I spoke to him, he gave unrequested yet much appreciated advice for the composition of two rituals I had yet to finish writing and one I had yet to get started on. Once the conversation was, in my opinion, satisfactorily finished, he abruptly gave me his insights into a personal trouble of mine. A black magickal priestess by the name of Akelta has also attested to these characteristics of his, expressing amazement at how helpful he is in her rites to heal others, as well as at his honesty when she asks him to heal someone that he simply cannot.

Barbas can give aid in the Initiatory Sphereworkings of the Earth, the Moon, and the Sun without involving Sephirothic forces, and he can also help initiate the witch through the element of water. Capable of casting very effective maledictions, he absolutely loves children and has a knack for enacting violence against those that would molest them.

Barbuel specializes in astral combat. His auspices are useful in the endeavors of shielding, warding, banishing, and exorcism. He’s a master of all arts who can teach any handicraft or mechanical trade– in fact, it’s said that he can teach more in an instant than a group of masters could in twenty years. He can make the witch a better fighter and a better driver, and he can teach her the mechanics of the human body.

Marbas rules over the seas, all the waters, and all the lifeforms within them. He is attributed to the Qliphothic Sphere known as Ghagiel (Uranus/Beelzebuth) and the Qliphothic Tunnel ruled by A’ano’nin. This tunnel is related to the fifteenth tarot card known as the Devil and has a planetary attribution to Saturn. This pathway spans from Thagirion (Black Sun/Belfegore) to Samael (Mercury/Adrammelech) and is related to the Witch’s Sabbat. This stone of this path is the Black Diamond– the variate of the Philosopher’s Stone attainable through demonic alchemy.

According to grimoiric demonology, Marbas generally appears as a great lion or wild boar, to later adopt the form of a human male when coerced into so doing. His adoption of the form of a lion is more commonly recorded than his manifestation as a bore, and it is said that he will adopt specific forms in conformity with the black magickian’s desires. I made sure not to study his appearance prior to my first evocation of him so that I would have no presuppositions of his appearance for him to conform to, which makes it interesting that he appeared to have something resembling the head of a lion when he showed himself to me. Other demonographies depict him manifesting as a master workman wearing an apron.

Radahel is a necromantic archdemon of the Saturnian Qlipha who specializes in lethal and non-lethal malediction alike and has aptitudes with multiple methods of divination. He rules the True Will and he can help initiate the witch through the Planetary Sphere of the Earth.* He can impart wisdom, intuition, diligence, and maturity to the magickian.

*The Planetary Sphere of the Earth is indeed quite different from Nahemoth. Yes, you can initiate yourself through the Sphere of the Earth without using the Sephiroth at all.

Radahel rules the cycle of reincarnation, and his auspices are useful in both necromancy and death magick. The Book of Sitra Ahra refers to him as “the Conquering and Dominating One of [Sathariel].” He can make you a better lay and a better flirt, and for some reason, he can enchant a chalice better than just about any other demon I’ve ever seen do it.

Radahel specializes in skrying, pyromancy, and divination by runes. He can modify the astral double of the witch by giving it either a retractable pair of large, ravenlike wings, or long, fetid-looking claws which really look like they could do some damage in a fight.

While Cimeries is the Patron Demon of Soldiers, Radahel holds the military in contempt. He told me he protects children and soldiers who were dishonorably discharged. While I know that demons are individuals, I’ve begun to wonder whether Cymeries likes the soldiers but not how the military treats them.

According to Radahel, graveyards and crossroads are powerful locations for rituals to him, and human corpses are very helpful in calling upon him. He teaches the witch to cleanse by water and he can help her build up her muscles.

Before I evoked Radahel for the first time, I took a second to feel his astral signature out. His energy was light blue. It felt playful, so I looked deeper, and it felt kind, and I looked a little deepter until I saw the latent viciousness inside him. I proceeded with the evocation, and he appeared visibly in front of me. He wore a red cloak with the hood drawn up. His face was covered by a shiny mask with horns—reminiscient of the masks rich people wear at parties in movies. He was nine feet tall. Just as I sensed playfulness and subtle kindness, and there was viciousness beneath, the mask had a jocular smile on it. I’m guessing I wouldn’t like what I’d see if he decided to take off the mask. He told me that the horns on the mask weren’t just decorative—he needed a mask with horns, or it wouldn’t have fit him. So the playful exterior wasn’t a ruse—he is legitimately funny and charistmatic, and the jokes he told were very light-hearted in nature. He has a capacity for viciousness to the point of sadism, but he really was a pleasant fellow.

Radahel told me he’d been observing me for a long time—albeit only once in a while. He told me he’d been present when I finally conquered my fear of heights for good– it was my first cliff diving trip.

His anecdote made a lot of sense. I was the only dude there who was afraid of heights, and yet somehow, neither of the dudes, one of whom was a Marine, and both of whom had already dived off that same cliff on a prior occasion, were willing to jump first. So I did, with no hesitation. Now I know who to thank for that.

Curiel

Rank: Prince; Chief Duke; Chief President
Superior: Aseliel; Symiel
Legions: 40
Element: Air
Direction: East; North
D/N: Nocturnal
Sacred Numbers: 25; 11
Colors: Blue, Yellow, White, Purple
Qlipha: Thaumiel (Neptune & Pluto/Moloch & Satan)
Planet: Saturn
Tunnel of Set: Gamaliel-A’arab Zaraq

 

Curiel is an aerial demon and a predatory spirit with an infamously stubborn disposition. He presides over dark magick, sanguine vampyrism, ice magick, pyromancy, divination via pendulum, the mysteries of the moon, and nocturnal magick. His auspices are useful in shielding and the construction of wards.

Curiel is a predatory spirit of Saturn, an aerial demon, and a ruler of the night with an infamously stubborn disposition– at least amongst white magickians who would make of him a slave. He presides over dark magick, sanguine vampyrism, ice magick, pyromancy, divination via pendulum, the mysteries of the moon, and nocturnal magick. His auspices are useful in shielding and the construction of wards.

Curiel went entirely unacknowledged by the medieval grimoire tradition with the exception of a single text. Ars Theurgia relates Curiel’s appointment to the rank of Chief Duke under King Symiel and to the rank of Chief President under a Demonic Prince named Aseliel. This makes Curiel a Chief Duke of the North and a Chief President of the East.

Ten of the dukes in service to King Symiel are attributed to the day while the other ten beneath him (including Curiel) are attributed to the night. In his station as one duke among twenty, Curiel presides over forty demonic legions. In his other station as a Chief President under Aseliel, he presides over thirty principal spirits alongside twenty lesser spirits.

But of course, I was not aware of Curiel’s recorded positions in the infernal hierarchy when I first communed with him. As odd as it may seem, I prefer to know as little as possible about a demon before I summon them for the first time. That way, I can get a personal gnosis of the spirit, and it’s easier to attain insights into the spirit when you don’t have preconceptions which could make you doubt your gnosis or your channeling abilities.

Curiel introduced himself to me as a Prince of Demons. Since presidents are not often promoted to the rank of prince, this third rank of his suggests an involvement in an infernal hierarchy that went uncatalogued by the magickal demonology of the the Dark Age grimoires. (Note: it is my tentative opinion that an innumerable collective of spirits unbound by mortality and causality alike would be more likely to operate in conformity with multiple separate yet coexistent hierarchies than adhere to singular chain of command).

Curiel is attributed to the Qlipha of Thaumiel (Neptune & Pluto/Moloch & Satan) as well as to the Qliphothic Pathway of Aquarius. Like almost all of the demons I’ve written about, Curiel’s planetary attribution outside of the Qliphoth doesn’t match the planetary influence of the Qlipha he is attributed to (for example, Asmodeus rules the Qlipha of Mars, and yet the Goetia attributes him to the Sun). Nonetheless, a pattern emerges when his Qliphothic attribution to the Nethermost Sphere is connected to his Planetary affiliation with the most adversarial planet in our astrology.

The Qliphothic Pathway or “Tunnel of Set” that Curiel is attributed to stretches between the Qliphothic Spheres of Gamaliel (Black Moon/Lilith) and Oreb Mavet (Venus/Ba’al). The tarot attribution for the Tunnel of Set that he’s assigned to is the Star (Atu XVII) and the archfiend presiding over the tunnel is known as Tzuflifu. The demonic species native to the Pathway of Aquarius is called the Behemiron or “the Bestial Ones.”

When I communed with Curiel, he manifested in the form of a black-robed sorcerer with dark brown skin and a pair of short horns adorning his bald head. His eyes were red entirely– no pupils, no irises (you get the idea).

Keep in mind, demons appear differently to everyone who summons them unless the witch has presuppositions for the spirit to conform its appearance to. Now as far as I’m aware, there are no recordings of Curiel’s appearance outside of this very article, so of course, I had no presuppositions. Ergo, Curiel did what demons do– he adopted an appearance particular to me, and the appearance he chose served to symbolize his nature in a way that I could understand.

I didn’t think about it until a week after I saw him: the dude looks just like Cain looked when Cain appeared to my prior apprentices and I. Dark skin, entirely red eyes, and a horned face. Some mythological lore purports that the Mark of Cain was a pair of horns. Curiel appeared with a pair of horns– significantly shorter horns than Cain had. Curiel even put on black wizard robes just to make it more obvious.

I think that Curiel used to be a human. He completed the Great Work via black magick (the hint was in the robes) and became an Ascended Master in death, freed from the cycle of reincarnation. And just like Cain (also known as Caym or Camio), Curiel became a demon as a product of his alchemical pursuits.*

*Loosely speaking, demons are a particular species of spirit, and so are, for comparison, ghosts. What makes a ghost a ghost is the type of energy which it’s composed of– a ghost is a ghost because it’s comprised of a type of energy we call the Death Essence. A demon is a spirit comprised of a type of energy we can describe as Qliphothic or infernal. The soul of a human witch will become increasingly demonic the more she practices Goetic and Qliphothic sorcery– mages become likened unto the spirits that they surround themselves with. When I say that Curiel became a demon via the alchemy of black magick, this transition most likely occurred a while after his attainment of immortality in death.

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}
