Halloween For Satanists

For Satanists, especially Theistic Satanists, Halloween is the most sacred Sabbat. For most Satanists, this is the highest holiday asides from one’s birthday, with the runner-up being Walpurgis (whose current aligns with Halloween on the seasonal spectrum). This date, along with the month’s days leading up to it and the following week, is a time of high vibration in the natural atmosphere. For those, who are intuitive or tend to be magically inclined, this is a most potent period for receiving direct messages from spirits and Demons. Any form of magick or ritual during this time is enhanced. Working with the Demons will be stronger than usual, and communication will be more clear. Satan is always with you but you will feel His presence stronger during such days, and you will feel His current more potent as your auric field connects with it.

To set things straight, Halloween is not to be confused with the Gaelic seasonal celebration of Samhain. Halloween is honored by Satanists but, not all Satanists acknowledge Samhain. Since ancient times, depending on the region or local vicinity, Samhain was either noted on the Blood Moon, which is the full moon of October but, it seems to have been; mostly honored on the fluctuating astrological date that falls on the midpoint between the Autumn Equinox and the Winter Solstice. The date is always about a week after that of Halloween. Halloween is the fixed calendar date of Oct. 31 in the Northern Hemisphere. Samhain is the time to honor one’s ancestors and connect with the spirits of the dead. Like mentioned, not all Satanists celebrate Samhain. But those that do will set up a separate altar, or space, to commemorate the dead, never are the dead honored at Satan’s altar. Rather than paying homage to their bloodline ancestors for various personal reasons, some Satanists, Satanic Witches, and Warlocks will homage to the Satanists and witches who have gone before. Those who are no longer among the present living but who have paved the way, whose works and memory will live on forever.

Halloween is when many of us Satanists have either first dedicated to Satan or have initiated into the path of Satanism. Many Satanists will conduct a rededication ritual to Satan or both Satan and His bride on this day. Either way, Halloween is very sacred to Satanists. An intimate ritual takes place with time spent at Satan’s altar. Satanists who celebrate with a group/coven will conduct some form of “traditional” Black Mass (traditional equating to group ritual), along with “revels”- basically, a Satanic Halloween party that follows the ritual.

For Satanists, Halloween begins on Oct. 31, when the veil between the worlds is no longer present (it actually is lifted on the Blood Moon) and continues into Nov. 1. The spirit of Halloween and its connection to Satan along with its importance to the Satanist is acknowledged for days after which follows and for those who acknowledge it, is carried through into Samhain. When looking at the bigger picture, apart from contemporary scrip on Satanism put out by modern Satanists, we see that Oct. 31 is really just the beginning of Halloween, it’s when the gateways open after the lifting of the veil between the realm of spirit and the world of humankind.
