Last night, which was Friday Nov. 19th, my podcast Devil’s Coven was to host a Satanic Full Moon Scrying Ritual, sadly things didn’t happen as planned. Surprisingly I was locked out from the system I use to record episodes or go live, last night’s ritual was supposed to be a live event. I worked hard putting this ritual together for those who follow the podcast. Considering that the energy of this full moon with it’s partial eclipse is still in effect all weekend, I am typing out a version of the ritual here. I feel that I owe this to everyone who was waiting anxiously for last night’s event.
*First a brief note on scrying for those who aren’t sure what this is: Scrying is not magick. It is a form of divination that involves gazing into or onto a reflective surface such as a mirror, crystal ball or water. You may also conduct scrying with fire or smoke however scrying for the most part is associated with the element of water. As every witch knows, water is a portal and is associated with dream and the astral plane. Mirrors and crystal balls are associated with the water element, the astral and serve as portals into the realm of spirit. Scrying helps to develop and awaken the third eye and aids with channeling (to receive messages from spirit, the demons and or Satan.
*The purpose of this ritual is to align with the frequency of this moon and its lunar eclipse while connecting with Satan, utilizing scrying to channel the message/s He has uniquely for you during this period.
*Some moon lore to help you connect with this ritual and weekend’s frequency: The November full moon’s common name is the Beaver Moon because it was the time when beaver traps were set also it was believed that this was the time when beavers prepared for the winter. This moons holds many other older titles such as the frosty moon, the snow moon, and the mourning moon. For the Satanist, the mourning moon is mostly noted. It is called the mourning moon because it marks the end of autumn, placing us on the cusp of winter, where the world of man and the realm of spirit. meet. This is the last full moon before the winter solstice (which marks the astronomical winter officially). This is a good time to check in with your intentions and tap into your creative side. Satanic Witches and Warlocks can utilize this period from up until the winter solstice to connect with the darkest side of Satan as being the god of death. Some Satanists might wish to work with the great goddess Hecate, and her darkest aspects, especially aiding in shadow work. If you prefer working with Demons, Eurynomos is one who’s energy is strongest during this period. If you don’t already hold a connection with either Hecate or Eurynonos, it would be best to create one before petitioning either however this is a great time to get to know them and build your connection with. Devotee of Satanas, simply take this time to give yourself a motivational push to create positive action in your life. Activate and transform your abilities. Stop any negative energy from influencing your physical and spiritual wellbeing.
*What you will need: 1 bowl (without any images or design on the inside, doesn’t matter who it looks on the outside), filled with water, 1 candle to represent Satan, 2 tealight candles (optional), non distracting cone or stick incense with an incense burner for it (optional), matches or a lighter, and a glass/chalice of water for you to drink. Not necessary but if you have a ritual bell or singing bowl, also have this on hand.
*Make sure you will not be disturbed and are sitting comfortably either at a table, your altar or on a cleared/clean floor space what will serve as your sacred space for this rite. Have the bowl of water in front of you with Satan’s candle centered behind it a few spaces back. If you are using the tealights, place one at either side of Satan’s candle but a bit closer to the bowl. Place your glass/chalice of water somewhere to the side at reaching distance. If burning incense place this not to far to one side as well along with your ritual bell or singing bowl if you’re using one.
*I recommend to read this through before jumping into it. It might be a good idea to prerecord yourself reading out the guided meditation so that you may play the recording as a guided meditation while your eyes are closed.
*Ring the bell or chime the singing bowl 3x
Take 3 deep breaths. Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. On each breath in imagine that you are taking in new vitality and new life into you. See this as light filling every part of your body. On each breath out, imagine all the heaviness, stress and worry leaving your body and mind. All which doesn’t serve you is blowing out your mouth as grey smoke. Now, keeping your eyes closed, allow yourself to fall into your normal breathing rhythm, feel comfortable within your body and within your atmosphere. You’re taking this moment to replenish your energy. This time is just for you.
Now switch your focus to Satan! Also towards your Satanic practice. Up until this point you have lived your practice throughout the seasons, connecting stronger with Satan at each turn. You have searched several avenues trying to grow your practice and learn more about Him. You gathered what you felt could serve you and shed away what didn’t serve your best interest. Like the way a tree sheds its leaves in the fall, you let those who didn’t support your Satanism, who tried to suppress you, fall out of your circle. Satan has been with you every step of the way, even the times that you didn’t feel his presence. Satan never abandoned you. He allowed you to fall at times so that you may grow stronger and learn from those lessons. Know that Satan is always there to lend you strength, all you need to do is reach out. Now open your eyes.
If you’re using incense now is the time to light it. Ring the bell/chime the singing bowl 3 times. Light the tealights then light Satan’s candle while saying “In His Honor”. Place your hands on either side of the bowl and lean forward over it. Repeat these words:
“As ,my breathe ascends to thee Infernal Lord, so shall your blessings descend upon this water and me” Through your mouth, breathe into the bowl.
Invocation To Satan
Place your right hand over your heart and make the sign of the horns with your left and repeat this invocation and prayer:
“Baphomet, Moloch, Ishtar, Bast, Asmodeus, Mammon, Kali, Lilith, Amon, Pan, Ashtaroth, Naamah, Melek Taus. ”
“Arise Gods of the Abyss, and manifest thy presence through this scrying ritual, in the name of Satan!“
“Almighty Satan, open the Gates of Hell, Reveal the mysteries of your creation, for I am a partaker of your undefiled wisdom!“
“Father Satan, water is a portal, and a way to your kingdom. I ask that through water, you channel your message that is uniquely meant for me.”
“My love and gratitude to you Father”
Gaze into the bowl of water, don’t try to empty your mind, allow whatever thoughts to pass and fade away. Allow your senses to be open to receive Satan’s message. Don’t expect to see clear images in the water but rather either shadows of shapes or silhouettes, or slight coloration of varying hues. You more than likely will feel the message as a strong knowing or get a flash image in your mind. Spend as much time as you wish in this activity but don’t force anything. For the purpose of Devil’s Coven I intended for us to scry for 6-10 minutes. If you don’t receive any messages , that is fine, it might be your first time with scrying, you might receive your message in dream when you go to bed.
When you are done scrying, thank Satan. Now pick up your glass/chalice of water with your right hand and holding your left hand over it state
“In the presence of the Infernal Divine and in Satan’s name, I bless and consecrate this liquid which is no longer mere water but the elixir of life!”
Holding the glass/chalice with both hands now state:
“Lord Satan, Imperator of Fire, Hell, and Earth are filled with thy glory. Behold the chalice of life filled with the elixir of life. I drink to celebrate the Black Flame within. I drink in honor of thy true nature“
Take a big drink from your water and when done state:
“Thank You Satan” “So It Is Done!”
Extinguish Satan’s candle. Release all you summoned during that invocation by stating:
“All is as it was before, this space returns to the profane and all invited may leave in peace, anything unintentionally trapped within this rite, is now release”
“And It Is Done!”
Ring the bell/chime the singing bowl 3x
