Pulled This Card For You

I pulled this card for you to contemplate over the weekend.

Bats symbolize the underworld, As seen in witchcraft and most magical traditions, the underworld is a place of transition and transformation. This is where the soul goes to rest and review lessons learned. It’s also where the soul prepares for a new carnation, to be rebirthed into a new life, if need be. This card advises you to prepare to let go of something or someone that is keeping you stagnant, in both the profane world but also mostly in reference to your spiritual advancement. It could also foretell that it is time for you to switch up your magical or spiritual practice, or, to change your view upon what it is you think you believe in. Maybe the spiritual path you’ve been walking has served its purpose and can bring you no further. It is time to jump off the bandwagon and find what better serves you. Don’t enslave yourself to one way of thinking or believing. Try to open up to a broader plane. Know that you are not dishonoring or deceiving anything or anyone by doing so. You only deceive yourself by not allowing the process of change to occur. Stepping forward into new territory can be frightening however it can also be very enlightening and uplifting. You’ve got so much more to gain by trusting in the process and proceeding.

Follow your intuition! Look deeper into the self. It’s time to also go deeper within your practice be it creative/art/writing, or magical. Stop trying, start allowing things to happen. Let yourself be guided.

November is a period of transition, don’t fear the changes which lie ahead. You can feel that something is shifting in the atmosphere, just go with the flow and concentrate on what it is you need to do to move forward in your practice and upon your journey.

I hope this one card oracle reading resonated. I’ll be back during this weekend to present a new blog article. Until then my friends and readers-Darkest Blessings!

Ancestors

We have crossed the threshold and now dwell in the dark half of the year. The”spooky” season is here, and we believe the veil between the worlds is at its thinnest. Halloween, or, for some Samhain, is just around the corner. During this time, there is much talk, also pressure about honoring our ancestors. It is believed by many to be the time that the spirits of our ancestors our among us.

Has anyone stopped to question this?

Why would our great ancestors come through this veil (that separates us from the spirit world) to be with those they have never known? Why would they care? Haven’t their souls moved on? At Walpurgis/Beltane, the veil is also thin; why don’t we bring out our ancestral altars during that holiday? Why do many believe their ancestors are only going to be present now? What if you’re adopted? Do you truly know who it is you are honoring?
I might sound like an atypical witch posing these questions, but I like to bring some reality and food for thought into my witchcraft practices. And I hope that I am inspiriting you to put some thought into yours as well.

If you don’t feel connected to your ancestors or feel uncomfortable having to revere immediate family who crossed the veil, then don’t do it.

With concern to immediate family, many don’t get along with their family when they are alive, so why should one feel obliged to honor them because it’s “that time of year”? If you didn’t want to give someone the time of day when they were alive, wouldn’t it be hypocritical to do so after they are no longer in their physical bodies? Especially if you’re doing it because you’re following the herd mentality that states it’s the time of year to do so.

Regarding distant relatives long gone, those ancient ancestors you have never known and who have never known you nor even had presumed the existence of your immediate family, why honor them? What do you know about these distant bloodline ancestors? Aside from where they originated. Ask yourself, would you have gotten along with them? What type of person were they? Is their spirit worthy of your time?

Let’s face it, like with an immediate family, many of us got unsavory distant ancestors. Nobody, witch or other, is obliged to lend time and energy to one who might not have been a good human. Just because an ancestor is distant or ancient doesn’t make them any better or more powerful than those in your immediate family. In many cases, one’s immediate family are far better humans than their great ancestors were. It doesn’t matter what accomplishments an ancestor might have made. Some of our ancestors brought harm to others, were cruel, racist, discriminatory, or have committed great crimes without remorse. Would you really want to honor someone like that? In my opinion, prior to lighting a candle or giving an offering to an ancestor, it is best to find out as much as possible about them personally, their character and how they treated others. Know that you don’t owe the past anything.

In my personal practice, I don’t worship nor connect with ancestors from my bloodline, but instead I light a candle in respect to those who have suffered and died in the name of witchcraft; and what that consequence has entailed for those practicing and terming as witches today. I also lend respect (not worship) to the spirits of the land and dear friends who have passed in recent years; and to the witches and magicians who have influenced my practice; through their works, they have served indirectly as my mentors. You should know; I don’t do this on October 31st, for it is Halloween. On this day, I rededicate to the Devil and His Bride, then I join a few sister witches for a dumb supper, followed by a session of scrying and some other seasonal activities that witches do. The entire month of November is when I light a candle each day to hold respect for those mentioned.

Know that with this article, I am not attacking anyone’s personal practice but that I’m just sharing my thoughts on the matter. It is in my nature to get people to think and take a peek outside the collective bubble rather than blindly follow the flock. In my opinion, it is perfectly fine to revere a grandparent or other family member with whom you were close to. There is nothing wrong either if you keep a permanent space, like a picture with a candle and some flowers on a small table, for example, to honor those who meant something to you on a personal level, be they a blood relative or not. I also encourage those who have pets that crossed the rainbow bridge, to do the same for your fur baby. Just know who it is you are paying homage to.

*To clarify for those reading this who are not current with what the dumb supper is.

Dumb Supper: Dumb is a synonym for mute or silent. So, the essential rule of a dumb supper is to remain silent while dining. Usually, during a dumb supper, a plate of food is put on the dinner table for a spirit that wishes to join, if there is one. In some traditions it is customary to fix a plate containing the first cuts of the meal, and place it outside the front door. The premise behind setting this plate is to nourish a spirit while on it’s journey towards the light/beyond the veil. Know; that there are witches that will invite a deceased loved one to join them, the latter; isn’t what my friends and I practice.

*Something interesting for those who celebrate Samhain, did you know; that the Earth Spirit almanac, which follows the astrological dates of holidays, Samhain actually falls on November 7th it begins at 5:45 am eastern time zone.

Whether you revere your ancestors or not, I wish everyone reading this a Merry and Blessed Halloween and Samhain. Feel the magic in the atmosphere and embrace the dark season.

*Keep in rhythm with the season, follow this link to read an article put out by Lufolk, about Samhain. https://lufolk.com/blogs/paganism-and-folklore/samhain?goal=0_a1bda45e47-fa9511bd95-356697745&mc_cid=fa9511bd95&mc_eid=09aa86448c

Harvest Home

Welcoming the dark half of the year as we absorb the power of balance on this most magical day. Light in Dark. Dark in Light. Hailing in Harvest Home.

BLESSED AUTUMNAL EQUINOX!

Kindra Ravenmoon xx

This day also marks the 20th birthday of my beautiful physical familiar Mabon. He obtained this pagan name because I found him close to midnight, on the eve of this wonderful day. Fall Equinox and Harvest Home just didn’t sound right for a cat’s name. Maybe Equinox or Autumn, could have worked but still for this kitty, unfitting. He is definitely a Mabon.

What’s most magical, the night prior to finding Mabon, I prayed to Lucifer, asking for a physical familiar, my soul animal. I wanted to rescue a cat from the ASPCA eventually soon, but really wanted to save one off the street. I ask the Old One, to bring me a Main Coon. I always wanted a cat of this breed, beautiful and full of character. When stating my wants, I pushed my request to specifics, asking for either an all white or totally black cat. Well, within 24 hours, give or take, after praying to Lucifer to bring me this specific magical cat, I found him abandoned along side of a highway. Mabon is a Maine Coon, and as you can see from the picture shown, he’s black and white. Guess the Devil figured, she’s being really picky yet this witch can’t make up her damn mind, so there! Well, I’m not complaining. Mabon has been a blessing in my life ever since.

HAPPY 20TH BIRTHDAY MABON! )🥳 Love my cat 🍁🍂❤️❤️❤️🍁🍂

In this photo he took it upon himself to be my model. I was doing some creative photography for a pagan/occult magazine. The editor loved him and Mabon got to be in the issue, appearing in a few articles I might add.

Encounter

As I promised, this next blog is about a “paranormal” encounter a friend and myself experienced back in the latter half of the Spring.
I would have shared this sooner, but I needed time; to fully ingest what had happened. The information given during the experience, and not to mention the information I continued to channel for days after. I wanted to be able to formulate everything into coherent words to present to you, my readers.
One evening a friend and I were doing some paranormal investigation and trying out some new ghost-hunting equipment just because it was something new, and we just wanted to have some fun with it. We had no expectations.

Jumping back a couple of hours before our ghost-hunting, I helped my friend with a spell meant to send protection and healing to her mother in China.
My friend is a reiki master, so she incorporated that into what we did. The candles still had several hours to burn for our magick to have been completed, so we let everything be and went out to test the new equipment.

Side Note:
Don’t worry; we were not irresponsible and made sure all would be more than safe regarding the burning candles. I still wouldn’t recommend anyone leave burning candles unattended unless you are 100% guaranteed that; if anything unexpected happens, nothing will burn.

Our ghost hunting didn’t bring anything that would have required any research for later. What we picked up was nothing more than any mere ghost-hunting phone app would have,
We weren’t out for long and were thinking about the candles burning, so we returned. We set the candles on a table in the center of the living room and then sat on the floor in front of them, looking at the equipment monitor and joking about what came up on it. From this, we both got an urge to work with the ouija. I went to another room to retrieve the board, and that’s when she screamed out my name, Kindra!” “Come quick!”

I ran into the living room to find my friend staring in the direction of the candles and then at the monitor with her mouth open, totally dumbfounded. The most freaky is that her little Pomeranian, who barks non-stop; at anything that moves, was standing there, totally silent, swaying back and forth and staring in the same direction. I didn’t see anything and kept asking, What?” “What?”
She motioned for me to sit on the floor beside her and pointed to the monitor; she had its camera pointing towards the candles. What I saw through the equipment monitor; was the strangest entity I had ever encountered. It stood on the opposite side of the table, directly in front of our burning candles.
It was a very tall, slim figure, with a pointed cone-shaped head and dark large oval eyes. Looking into its eyes was like seeing an actual eye staring through a pool of utter blackness. The body was a transparent greyish-green auric light that formed over a skeletal body,

We noticed that the entity was hovering over the floor. But then we realized that we were seeing it as if it were standing on the threshold of a doorway. Later on, after the fact, we figured that we must have opened a portal when we did the spell, and that portal remained opened because the spell working was still ongoing with the burning of the candles. We were seeing this entity through the doorway of that portal we created.

The entity stayed with us for roughly 20 minutes. What freaked out my friend the most is that it addressed her by her North American name and not her Chinese birth name. All her equipment, including her internet, phone, etc. are under her proper Chinese name, not the North American version of it. This factor ruled out a glitch in her equipment’s system, but then again, how the dog behaved had no other explanation than this entity being real. The entity answered all of our questions.

Some of what the entity told us that night:

Its name is irrelevant to the human tongue.
It comes from the universe beyond the universe.
It and others come here from time to time to collect lost souls.
It told us that we each hold much power and are on the right path.
We have the light within.
We must stay on the path that we each walk.
We and others like we need to share our light to heal others, make them see.
We, on this planet, are being monitored.
When the majority of humankind has opened their eyes, and has progressed in mind, heart, and spirit, They from the universe beyond the universe will return.
They will teach and help us advance ourselves and the benefit of this planet.
The Creator-God! is made up of many and is not one Being.
There are two Creators. They are one, and they are separate. In human concept, they are one of each, a masculine and a feminine, Each being composed of many. All “them”work in unison, each having a task.
There is no war in heaven or between angels and demons. Such a notion is construct of man’s fabrication called religion.
Angles and demons each hold their own purpose and mission. Neither cares about the other. They are neutral to one another.
What you see as Lucifer or as Jesus, are channels to your spiritual growth. They and those as they are, can serve as channels to send energy or your message to the Creators. If you want. This will serve only the self.
Procreation is a human concept. They (meaning those like the entity also other beings from its realm) do not procreate. They exist for their purpose and must complete it.
We need to find our purpose and manifest through it.

There were a few more bits of information from that night, but unfortunately, I do not remember. Much of what the entity shared sounded very Gnostic but also, from what I have heard from the sermons of the Cult of Cthulhu, then came something more.

We both felt light, calm, with a warmth inside when the entity abruptly vanished. As soon as it was gone, my friend’s dog started to bark and run around as usual.

The messages I received throughout the days that followed:
The Creators “God” is before everything. There was it and the void. “God” is before the primordial beings/forces. It, “God” created the primordial.
There is no barriers, no good and evil. Everything simply is.
We need to break free from the blindfold of good versus evil, us versus them and the blindfolds and shackles of all religions.
“God” never intended us to create religious structures or religion at all. (when I say God, I’m referring to the masculine and feminine creator forces mentioned above).
“God” doesn’t want us to worship; it or any beings/gods. It wants us to live and be open in mind and heart. Help each other and help others to see.
Be good to one another but cut off from those who remain a negative to your well being and progress. Don’t create war.
Religious scriptures, were created by man. We should not enslave ourselves to man’s dictations.

We should not create new scriptures and new religions either.
Satan is not the Creator. Satan/The Devil/Lucifer is a creation of the Creator (both masculine and feminine forces) and works for them as part of their purpose. He (Satan/Lucifer) is one of the primordial.
There are gatekeepers/guardians of this world and between the universes. When humankind is ready, we will be able to pass through them.

*There are a few more insights the alien/entity shared. I won’t be revealing these. I am unsure if I fully understand or am meant to understand or share it.

Everything stated here, and what continues in the paragraphs below, has opened something within me. All this has played an additional factor and sealed my reasons (all in my blog article titled Why I Dumped Theistic..) to no longer associate myself with the shackles of a specific religious path and dogmatic people affiliated with it.

I always say that nothing happens for nothing. There is a reason why I was unprepared to manifest this into a blog months earlier. Also, when I was ready to share and did have the time to, I was unable due to health issues. I believe that the reason I was unable to produce this blog sooner was not only to receive further insight from the entity; but also; I was to stumble upon the testimony of a South African Satanist who saw Jesus.

After listening to his story, how he expressed himself and how natural his emotions were, I believe his sincerity also his experience. What that man claims Jesus told him and how he channeled further messages is almost exactly; what the entity, from my experience, revealed. I’m not saying that Jesus is an alien from another universe or anything along those lines-No!
What I believe; is all this falls on a much larger scale than what our mortal minds are able to comprehend. That, such things present themselves to a certain few of us when the timing is right and in a way that the individual can understand and accept.

*If you haven’t already heard about what the now former South African Satanist experienced and the messages he has to share from it, I encourage you to watch/listen to the video I linked below. I ask readers to please keep an open mind when listening to his experience as I trust you have kept an open mind when reading about my experience.

Thank you for taking the time.

Why I Dumped Theistic…

DISCLAIMER:
What lies herein is based upon my personal views, my perspective, and lending of my reasoning to explain why I no longer identify with Satanism, and particular terms or groups of people. What is stated here; is not directed towards anyone in particular, nor is it my goal to hurt anybody’s feelings. But, if you take offense, maybe you need to step outside from yourself and take an honest look at the bigger picture and let that sink in for a bit. You might also need to rethink the titles you identify.

Many of you have noticed that I no longer Identify online with titles such as Theistic Satanist or Theistic Satanism and that I have disassociated with most who glorify themselves under these titles. There are several reasons why over recent months, I have rethought and rebranded, and I will gladly share the core of it here with you.

For quite some time, I have been highly disappointed and also; annoyed with the state of Theistic Satanism as presented online. Nothing has changed since its first inception into the realms of the internet, back in 2003, a heavy dark cloud filled with keyboard “Satanists” trolls, instigators of drama, and a plethora of egos clashing. As it still stands, most everyone; is seeking Satanic fame of some sort. Many Satanists, both from the past, and present are still trying to be the next Anton LaVey (theistic version) while denying his creditability. Something more that hasn’t changed from the past, and what really sickens me, is that many are using and stabbing everyone else just for the sake of amusement, and they do it under the guise of Satanism, in the name of Satan. Only a handful of those titling as Theistic Satanists; appear to legitimately; want to learn, share, and practice. However, they are misguided by the ones who are presenting the Path. Theistic Satanism online becomes boring really fast with all the same old demonic images, Satanized Baphomets, and anti-Christian , anti-everything posts circulating. For me, it appears that Theistic Satanists haven’t shook off that “Us vs Them” attitude, and with this breeds more hate, discrimination, along with never ending false information spewed and rehashed time over again.

On the flip side of this clown show, some presenters of Theistic Satanism have taken the plunge and have begun preaching how Satan loves everybody. They preach that Satan cares for you and dictate what Satan’s thoughts and sentiments are towards you; for example, “Satan doesn’t want you to celebrate non-Satanic holidays with your family and friends” or “such and such is an insult to Satan”. Love, healing, and kindness all in Satan’s name, with subtle nuances of dictating what Satan wants, thinks, and how to practice your Satanism. This new wave of Theistic Satanism is no different than; the Christian sermons they claim to hate. The same speel, omit Jesus and insert Satan. This new gentler, inclusively kind and helpful Satan is being presented by those who are trying to create a Satanic community, involving anyone who identifies as a Theistic Satanist. It’s one thing to want to be part of a communal hub such as an online group of like minded individuals, but.; these love and light Satanists are really pushing to lump everyone one titling as a Theistic Satanist under one communal umbrella. At the least they agree that not everyone will view Satan in the same light but they blindly believe that everyone can get along under one big theistic umbrella, even if they don’t like one another. In a perfect world, this could happen-maybe! But, that wouldn’t be Satanism. What I don’t like about this, especially, is if a Theistic Satanist holds this view or not, the Satanist still is lumped under the communal umbrella just for publicly presenting as a Theistic Satanist. The peace and love Satanists will still consider you as one of them, and this is how you will be viewed, like it or not.

So, we got in one corner Satanists (theists) that are anti-religion, anti-almost everything, upholding the negative Satanic stereotype, with the majority only titling as Satanists for shits and giggles to have fun and create chaos online. And, in the opposing corner we got the “Satanic unity, peace and love” Satanists wanting to bring everyone together under one hub (online) and call it a community. Think about how this clashes. Ponder upon this oxymoron for a moment, will you.

From my perspective, Theistic Satanism, based on the outline I have shared, will never be taken seriously. This being no fault but the lump majority who claim and present it. The harder they try, the harder and faster they keep falling. When there are too many chefs in the kitchen, nothing gets done, especially if neither of those chefs know how to cook to begin with.
To make things worse, in my opinion, is how confusing all this might be to someone new upon the Path or seeking to learn about Satanism in general. Let us not leave out the fact that both sides of Theistic Satanists preach hate and discrimination towards Christians, philosophical Satanists and those claiming to be atheists. Maybe this is the common ground between them; it certainly isn’t their belief in deity.

Taking all this drama and chaos into consideration, is a big part why I have disassociated myself from the title Theistic Satanist and Theistic Satanism. As a professional and in respect to myself, I cannot subject or affiliate my name as a serious author with such a circus act. In with what I share, I hope to inspire people upon their journey. I don’t wish to lead them down a rabbit hole or give them the wrong impression by using a title holding such a negative egregore. I have always been a devotee of the Devil and have always titled myself a witch. It has only been during recent years that I have publicly used the term Theistic Satanist, and in doing so it has drawn a lot of negative and unsavory types into my following. It also has brought me much unwanted attention in the negative. I have never experienced such of this nature within my following prior, nor have I ever experienced theft (copycats) , immature behavior, and such immense jealousy thrown my way before associating with that title (from someone who has come from the modelling world, that says a lot).


In generalizing, Theistic Satanism has proven to be nothing more than an adolescent rebellious branch of Christianity, and a micro-managed religion. Theistic Satanists haven’t advanced, haven’t authenticated Theistic Satanism since they first started congregating online. Even now with their talks of unity and attempts for online community, you can clearly see the underlining deceit among them. With several waiting to surface their strategic attack upon peers. Actually, this masked war has already begun. It was war and confusing then and continues to be now. Rather than getting better it has worsened, becoming weaker and laughable with (count one one hand) a rare few who keep trying to go against the grain and make it into something respectable-All the power to you!

As a scholar, I can no longer look the other way and pretend to un-see and un-hear; all the ridiculous false information ( purposely or ignorantly) circulate among Theistic Satanists. At this point, I respect very few authentic, non preachy, open-minded Theistic Satanists, who share from their personal experience without trying to organize anything, or micro-manage Satanism in anyway. I have spent several days and hours in meditation and contemplation. I asked the Devil what is the best direction to take and if I should continue to stay connected to certain people. He has edged me towards my final decision. Lucifer reminded me about why I walk the path, oaths I’ve taken, and that the large part of my practice lies in my roots of the Old Craft and its folklore of the Devil and why I write about Him as the Old One.

During this period in recent months I experienced an encounter with something from beyond our universe (details about this encounter in an upcoming blog). What I will state here and now; is that this encounter opened my eyes to a deeper view on spirituality. It has showed me the bigger picture. This experience taught me to look outside the narrow box I had dug myself into (confines of Theistic Satanism) and how in recent years this had blinded me from truly moving forward to where I personally need to succeed. I have also come to the conclusion that authentic Devil worshipers are those who would not subject themselves to the restrictions of any religion, not even one calling itself Theistic Satanism. A Devil worshiper would and should remain in the shadows, keeping their practice personal rather than exposing it to a world that will never understand it. True Devil worship, doesn’t reach out to the masses, nor does it teach and preach to random strangers on the internet. A true Devil worshiper, keeps their connection personal, unique between they and their god.

To conclude, I have always been an animist and will always honor the Earth and the Devil. But, the Devil I honor is not the Christian Satan. The terms you might see me use online, Heretical Witch, and Heretical Witchy Woman, state exactly my stance, being one in league with the Devil without having to subject to terms linked to groups or people of an unsavory caliber. A heretic by origin is a person who thinks for themselves, does not follow. Heretical, has come to be known as one who acts not in favor of the church and who holds opinions at odds with what is generally accepted. As a Traditional/Folkloric Witch, I find these terminologies suite me just fine and using them doesn’t take from the fact that the Devil is with me or I with Him.

In my strong opinion, Satanism, actual Satanism, is what is presented in the teachings of Anton Szandor LaVey and the Church of Satan. Anything claiming to be Satanism that is independent from the Church of Satan is nothing more than a parody. LaVey and the Church of Satan were the first to bring Satanism forward into the modern world. They set the grounds for what everyone calling themselves a Satanist today, including those calling themselves Theistic Satanists, base their practice upon, even if they realize it or not. The majority of Theistic Satanists incorporate what LaVey has given, such as, ritual structure, demonic hierarchy, satanic phrases and words, into their practice, yet remain ignorant of this fact.

Some Food for Thought:

To invite Him into your life as Satan doesn’t make you a Theistic Satanist. Nor do you need to subject yourself to the dogma and drama of a “religion” such as Theistic Satanism, in order to honor, worship, or work with the Devil and whatever name you chose to acknowledge Him by. Don’t force yourself to join a Satanic group or follow someone to honor Him. I wish that authentic Devil worshipers would stop clinging and fighting for titles such as Theistic Satanist. Allow themselves to break free, expand their knowledge outside the confines of Theistic Satanism and aim their focus on their practice and connection with the Devil in all of His guises. Satan doesn’t need a religion. Religion restricts, dictates, preaches, threatens, and deceives. Religion takes you away from your personal connection with deity. Satan opposes religion. If Satan is freedom, if He has given free will, then why would He want His devotees to create a religion? Why would Satan want His chosen to form clergy, conducting as the Church does?

PRAISE THE DEVIL IN ALL OF HIS GLORY! NO RESTRAINTS!!

Did I Block You? Get Over It!

I don’t understand why some people can’t move forward after being blocked from an online “friend’s” social media. Seriously, get over it!

Rarely do I feel the need to block someone I am in contact with through social media. For the times I had to perform such action, the decision to do so was not a random one. I have been meaning to write this post for a while now. Due to the fact, some whom I had to block in recent months still appear to be butt hurt over it and have been scapegoating me for things gone wrong within the hubs in which they congregate. Such things which I have never been a part of, nor wanted to be, yet they continue to associate my name within it. I’m talking about Facebook groups and the silly notion of a communal Satanic “community.” If you are interested, I have a blog article about my thoughts on the concept of “Satanic Community” (which I have recently re-shared within some of my social media haunts).

*More on why I have disassociated myself with using the titles: Theistic Satanism and Satanist within my social media haunts; will be explained in another blog post.

What most don’t seem to realize or maybe in some cases chose not to acknowledge is that I don’t only hold an Old-World Satanic mindset but that I am also a misanthrope. I don’t care that some people might be hurt to the point of retaliation toward me because I have blocked them on social media. The reason why I have written this post is so to make my point and reasoning clear. I might not care much for the human race in general, but if I happen to purposely hurt someone (in this case by blocking them), I wish for those whom I have hurt to get it straight as to why I have barred them from my energy and time within the virtual realms.

Reasons why I blocked you:

1– I found out from more than one source that you have been jabbing me behind my back. In such cases, the evidence would have been shared; with me. 

2– I don’t like people in general. Most people you know, I probably do not like BUT, I did not unfriend you because you are “friends” with people I do not like. I unfriended you because you support those who have tried to discredit my name. Who you know has viciously attacked me, or you even knew of the conspiracy said attacker/s organized towards me and never gave me a heads-up. or tried to sway them before they executed their plan. As an ally, I have been there for you no matter how big or trivial the need. Maybe, for some of you, I had stood up for you when you were attacked/bullied and had supported you in one way or another. For those it applies, I have also promoted your work, and YouTube, or other. Even encouraged others to help you out. But, when you idly stand by and do nothing to help me or stand in my defense, even side with those attacking me, you bet I will no longer consider you a friend/alley nor value you. I do have every right not trust you, feel betrayed by you, and not consider you safe to engage with my virtual energy and time online. 

3– You’re always in the center of drama. You instigate drama and continuously play victim after you had stirred the pot. I cannot stand those who constantly whine, or hold a victim mentality, usually, it comes with jealousy and betrayal as well. Or, you might be constantly opening new accounts, or disappearing then reappearing, all the while it is found that you have been silently watching me and everyone in the shadows all along, like some creepy stalker (which equates as drama to me).

4– You’re trying to elevate yourself through my name by adding me to groups I don’t want to be in or using my name as a means to get people to follow you or join your groups. You don’t hold my best interest but wish to use me for the information you can obtain from me to rehash it for your gain, never giving me any credit. Also, while you’re trying to ride my coattails you do nothing to promote me/my work.

5– You’re racist and discriminate against women, gays, trans, etc. Also, if you hate and are cruel to animals.

In conclusion: I have never threatened or forced anyone to unfriend/unfollow someone if they didn’t I personally have a trivial problem with. If someone has felt otherwise, that’s on them, not me!

Satan is Free Will, Satan is Pro-Choice

It is appalling that some Satanists, especially those claiming to be theistic, have taken a conservative Christian view, especially on women’s rights and abortion. I am shocked by the number of Satanists that have taken the “pro-life” stance and are not looking at the bigger picture. From what I have observed, these Satanists fall into two groups of reasoning;

  1. To oppose TST (The Satanic Temple) and everything about them, including their pro-choice movement. Most Satanists do not accept TST to be a real Satanic organization. The theistic Satanists who oppose TST will do anything to defy everything the TST represents (this even includes being anti the TST’s pro-gay and pro-trans movements). 
  2. To claim that every unborn child is of Satan. To abort a pregnancy is to offend Satan. That under any circumstances, even if rape is a factor, the impregnated woman became to be so upon Satan’s Will. The unborn child in question is Satan’s, and this is the destiny that Satan had in store for the expected mother. The fetus might be a devotee of the Devil, to carry out Satan’s will on Earth after its birth. These types of Satanists truly mimic the Roman Catholic Church’s view on abortion and bring back women’s rights to near non-existence.  To be fair, not all of these pro-lifers, anti-choice Satanists realize that they are hand in hand with the Church they oppose when preaching and pushing this standpoint upon other Satanists. As mentioned above, some are not willing to see the bigger picture outside the personal opinion they are trying to preach as Satan’s word and will.

Many Theistic Satanists for whatever unique reason of the individual, are also anti-Anton LaVey (founder of the Church of Satan. Also the first in organizing the non-religion/religion of Satanism and coining the term Satanism to represent his take on what it is). Yes, these Satanists will take inserts from LaVey’s teachings to back their reasons for being anti-choice and pro-life. An example of what they rehash is ” Satan Represents Responsibility to the Responsible” this is used against a woman in the scenario if she falls pregnant, no matter how the pregnancy came about. The ignorance on the part of the majority of Theistic Satanists who are rehashing this phrase is that they are not only using this phrase out of context, but they also could not tell you from which of LaVey’s writings it stems. Some don’t even realize it comes from LaVey’s teaching. Responsibility to the Responsible hails from The Nine Satanic Statements as they appear in Anton LaVey’s Satanic Bible 1969. It is the sixth statement and it reads “Satan represents responsibility to the responsible instead of concern for psychic vampires!” Notice how this statement has nothing to do with pregnant women or abortion. Another rehash taken from LaVey’s writings that pro-life Theistic Satanists like to throw out is the ninth rule in The 11 Satanic Rules of the Earth, again taken from the Satanic Bible. “Do not harm little children” Again, this statement has nothing to do with the rights of a pregnant woman’s body nor of a human fetus. It clearly states its regarding little children -Meaning those already born!

*It’s funny, in a hypocritical way, how when those who discredit Anton LaVey’s role in bringing Satanism to light in the contemporary world, will go back to take from his teachings when they feel it suits their cause.

Satan gave us free will. As Lucifer, He is our liberator and He lends His cup so that we may drink from His wisdom. Therefore how could Satanists of any walk, be pro-life when it comes to women’s bodies and abortion. Why would a Satanist want to help bring church and state back together? Why would a Satanist want to give a government control over women’s bodies? Why would a Satanist want to take away someone’s free will? The will that Satan gave! Why would a Satanist want to bring in politics into their devotional practice and try to persuade it, either directly or in subtle innuendos, unto fellow Satanists? Why would a Satanist preach unto others that taking the feel will over one’s body, away from them and removing their power to decide for themselves, is Satan’s will?

This is NOT Satan’s will! Satan like the Demons does not care so much about the mundane goings-on of humans. Satan does not impose upon us at all. The pro-life, anti-abortion movement/politics is a dogmatic concept meant to enforce total control over a woman’s will and body. This is the influence of Christian rule along with certain governments who are seeking any means possible to pull the reins tight on society’s freedom. Think about this hard! 

*In my personal option, anyone calling themselves a Satanist who is pushing to remove the rights of women over their bodies, who wish to force unwanted pregnancies, and who is preaching this out to other Satanists, is NOT a Satanist. Or, in the least, is not behaving as one who’s heart is devoted to Satan. They are more a person who is aligning themselves with the religion of Satanism, using Satan’s name to push their own personal agenda for their own personal gain. It is their own political views they are preaching and this has nothing to do for the actual Devil. We each hold the right to follow whatever politics we wish and believe what we want, but in my view, politics should be set a part from Satanic religion and spirituality. No matter what your political views are, it should not cloud your view of Satanism nor should you be pushing your personal political beliefs unto others through Satanism.

Again I will stress, that we need to look at the big picture. If women’s rights over their bodies is taken from them, it will open the floodgates in removing other rights such as the right for women to vote, for example. Why not? If we allow a right which women had fought hard for to be taken away decades later, why not another right they had fought equally as hard for? If women lose the right of choice in this matter, this also will make it much easier to go back and retract rights of minorities such as gay rights, trans and gender rights, and etc.. In recent weeks, in Canada, gay men finally have the right to give blood, can you believe it took this long for this to be granted? If the abortion rights are retracted in our neighbor the United States of America, what’s to say that the right to give blood won’t be taken away again from gay men here in Canada, along with our abortion rights. Whatever happens in either of these counties the other soon follows. Sadly we also influence much of the Standard worldwide. This is how big this is. Much bigger than the privileged pro-life Satanists, who can’t see outside their closed-minded agenda.

If a woman who needs it, has access to safe abortion options, the procedure can be taken care of prior to the fetus becoming an actual embryo. It is in the embryo stage that a heartbeat develops. A fetal heartbeat may first be detected by a vaginal ultrasound as early as 6 weeks after gestation. That’s when a fetal pole, the first visible sign of a developing embryo, can sometimes be seen. But between 6 1/2 to 7 weeks after gestation, a heartbeat can be better assessed. Now anti-abortionists use this heartbeat factor to push their argument, so much so, that most of us only hold the beating heart factor in mind, forgetting about the most important brain factor! Thanks to one of this sites subscribers, I am now reminded and awakened to the importance of the brain and how it plays a major role in this war on abortion. I could not state what they shared in the commentary in better words so I have copied this subscribers statement and as shown below, in order to share it with everyone who is reading this article. We can all hold in mind when have to defend women’s rights in this matter.

*Thank you tlothaos, for this insightful information. Your input here is much appreciated.

“A strong argument can be made against the heartbeat having any ethical relevance to the issue whatsoever. To be horribly unromantic, a heart is just a muscle that pumps blood. Vs. without a brain/neurons/etc., there can be no pain perception or sentience of any kind. Heart development comes earlier than brain development, though, and anti-choice people therefore use it in emotional appeals to argue for needlessly-early cut-offs for when abortion should be allowed – i.e. in practice, many folks won’t know they are pregnant during that period, and will thus wind up being forced to carry the pregnancy to term. Vs. the window in which one can have an abortion without meaningfully causing the “suffering” of the embryo is actually considerably wider than these people are misleading us into thinking.” “

“Something to think about so as to resist being manipulated by disingenuous “pro-life” discourse (of which there is a lot out there).”

*Below is not of my own words but rather something I barrowed from a friend’s post on Facebook. She doesn’t know the source but it and similar postings have been going around. I find it most fitting to end my above article. Hopefully it will make some who are pushing the Christian anti’-abortion agenda, stop and think. See the reality outside from their narrow bubble.

I am not pro-murder of children and babies, but..

*I’m pro-Becky who found out at her 20-week anatomy scan that the infant she had been so excited to bring into this world had developed without life-sustaining organs.

*I’m pro-Susan who was sexually assaulted on her way home from work, only to come to the horrific realization that her assailant planted his seed in her when she got a positive pregnancy test result a month later.

*I’m pro-Theresa who hemorrhaged due to a placental abruption, causing her parents, spouse, and children to have to make the impossible decision on whether to save her or her unborn child.

*I’m pro-little Cathy who had her innocence ripped away from her by someone she should have been able to trust and her 11-year-old body isn’t mature enough to bear the consequence of that betrayal.

*I’m pro-Melissa who’s working two jobs just to make ends meet and has to choose between bringing another child into poverty or feeding the children she already has because her spouse walked out on her.

*I’m pro-Brittany who realizes that she is in no way financially, emotionally, or physically able to raise a child.

*I’m pro-Emily who went through IVF, ending up with SIX viable implanted eggs requiring selective reduction to ensure the safety of her and a SAFE number of fetuses.

*I’m pro-Jessica who is FINALLY getting the strength to get away from her physically abusive spouse only to find out that she is carrying the monster’s child.

Synchronicities

The Devil, his demons, and spirits, often respond through synchronicities. More than not, coincidences are not the haphazard they appear to be. The universal mind, personified by Satanic Witches as the voices of the Master and the Lady, constantly offer guidance and presents opportunities. When these messages are acknowledged, wonderful events can unfold. But, when ignored, the flow of life just might take a downward turn. Valuable opportunities lost, leading to emptiness and regret.

How often have you later lamented not calling a friend? Or made a purchase when you knew it was right? This is the concept of synchronicity. Going with the flow of life and being observant. It is moving forward when events occur, and taking action when a situation feels right.

There is a special magick about synchronicity. Often it is interpreted as a sign or omen from subtle forces at work in the world around us. Satan and the demons will push your intuition to help guide you towards the answers you are seeking.. They will “synchronize” coincidences to keep you walking in the right direction. If you miss the subtle signs, they will make sure that the obvious is evident. When this happens, it is best not to ignore or deny what is being presented.

*Synchronicity is a word coined by Swiss Psychologist Carl Jung to describe seemingly coincidental, yet meaningful events in the external world that do not have an obvious cause.

Jung defined synchronicity as an “acausal connecting (togetherness) principle,” “meaningful coincidence”, “ acausal parallelism” or “meaningful coincidence of two or more events where something other than the probability of chance is involved.”

Veiling

Veiling is a practice among various peoples; it is one of the earliest mystical traditions. Over recent years a new movement of “veiling” within the eclectic world of modern witchcraft and paganism has drawn numerous adherents. This implementation, quite interestingly, has also begun to catch on with some practitioners of Devotional Satanism. In some traditions of Theistic Satanism, veiling has been applied for some time now.

What is veiling?

Veiling is the covering of the hair to deepen one’s spirituality. We can take this even further to say that it is the covering of one’s head, for, in some instances, the entire head is shrouded. For many contemporary witches, even those who are Satanists, both male, and female, veils aren’t only a ritual tool that is part of the ritual dress but is also worn in everyday life, away from the altar. Veiling most likely began for practical reasons, dating back to 2000 years or so ago. Nomad tribes adopted the practice for protection against the sun and dust. Moving forward, as communities developed, women kept the veil as a symbol of hearth and home. Veils became like portable temples, perched on the head. This offered freedom of movement and showed status, while simultaneously protecting the wearer’s identity. Followers of the classical Greek and Roman cults of Dionysus and Vesta would wear veils to shield their third eye, in order to maintain spiritual purity.

Oppression and Freedom:

As the Abrahamic faiths (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) made inroads, only prostitutes went bareheaded. Veils became a symbol of oppression. Eventually, many discarded the veil as a gesture of freedom. Then came along the Middle Ages, where the veil along with the wimple ( a high collar covering the neck and ears ) was worn again for practical reasons.

Historically the need to veil waxes and wanes, depending on practicality, and fashion, as society supposedly evolves. The gist of the message veiling conveys is assurance that one’s behavior doesn’t bring dishonor to either the community or ideally, oneself. A humble and modest life and a sense of community are created by taking up the veil. As per the sentiments of most wearers, veils offer a mysterious connection to something greater than the individual.

Brides and Nuns:

It was Saint Paul that equated veils with sanctity, protection, and an emblem, of marriage. Hence, the practice of veiling was maintained by brides as they began married life. Catholic nuns also maintained this practice, as they were considered married unto God ( in present-day, some devotional Satanists that veil consider themselves to be married in this same way, but to Satan).

In some cultures, veils were and are worn to protect the crown chakra and to ward off evil. Within some tribal spiritual African traditions, a cloth headwrap (a descendant of the veil) is sometimes worn to symbolize a crown. This serves as a reminder that all who wear it, are royalty or equal to royalty. In some traditions, this cloth is unwrapped while dancing during ceremony. This symbolizes leaving the mundane world to be able to venture into the world of spirit. In some cases to allow a spirit to possess the body for ritual purposes. Veils appear in Northern mystery circles, sometimes taken up by those who have pledged to follow Odin or Loki (to some Theistic Satanists, both of these deities are considered to be masks of Satan). Usually Nordic veils are red, the hue that stains the runes. Red in this sense, symbolizes life’s blood, good luck, good fortune, and high magick.

Modern Witches and Satanists Who Veil:

More and more witches and devotional/spiritual Satanists are incorporating veiling into their practice. Satanists veil for several reasons; to stay focused in prayer, as a way to shift from the mundane conscious to a spiritual mindset, to symbolize entering into Satan’s kingdom, or as mentioned, as a status of having married oneself to Satan. Individual Satanists each have their reasons and interpretations of why they choose to veil.

As we know, the history of the veil comes with controversy and veiling hasn’t always been something voluntary. Those who chose to veil outside from the privacy of the altar space, sometimes, more often than not, experience negative reactions from others. Especially for the Satanic Witch or Warlock who chooses to take up the veil publicly, while wearing Satanic symbols; be wise in your decision to do so. Be discreet and mindful of where and when you out your veil and how you chose to wear it publicly. If this is the first you hear of veiling as being part of a Satanic practice, I recommend to try it out for at least a month. Take note how it makes you feel, how it does or doesn’t enhance your spiritual experience. It won’t hurt to try, the Devil loves to see you play (:

Conscious Breathing

Any successful manifestation requires a clear vision. Whether this creation is accomplished with visual tools such as photographs, vison boards, or by constructing and expanding upon a well-honed internal vision, the foundations must be a clearly defined concept. Too often we are pulled in many varying directions or have lost our focus and connection with what it is that we truly wish to accomplish. Every human interaction imparts viable and useful information, but equally as well unnecessary “fluff”. Some of which does not roll off our back as easily as we might think.

The ability and practice of breath control can be advantageous for any situation- Change of job, relationship turmoil, familial bonds changing etc. Thoughts of change alone can be overwhelming. Emotion, guilt, duty, daily demands and dependent responsibilities seem to compete for rapidly fleeting and increasingly finite reasoning ability. Focusing on each individual breath, track the intake of air, following its path through the head and body, pushing energy along the veins and meridians. Visualizing existing pathways and flow within and around us can bring us back in touch with a place of discernment and clarity. A place where one step, one piece of the puzzle, can be observed, shined or adjusted or released. Trade the sand through your fingers for the solidity of now using your breath.

Quiet Mind

Breath training and practice can also benefit spiritual development. Desiring to delve deeper into your spirituality? Feeling a tug or call? The quieter the mind, the more accurately we may ascertain to whom or when we are being led. The more open our awareness, welcomes what comes. If that be good or bad, depends on how we conduct our mindset. Do you want to develop a closer more intimate relationship with the divine (Satan or the Demons)? Has an alternative healing modality caught your interest? Want to strengthen your energy manipulation skills? Focused breath uses will as fuel and direction for your purpose. Aspire to connect with another person, spirit, or group on a deeper level? It is a special and absolutely sacred experience to breath, feel, and share that force of life with another, or with entrusted others.

A simple exercise to bring awareness to breath, and breathing, is to sit or lie on a comfortable surface, close your eyes, and inhale through your nose for a count of 8. During that moment, feel the air and the action of the diaphragm. Now hold this breath for another count of 8. Then through the mouth, exhale slowly (should take another count of 8). The very simple technique, grounds you in the moment, connects you to the now. This can be used in conjunction with mind-clearing exercises. Also, this could be used in body relaxation exorcises- Starting at the toes, point, and flex each muscle group while directing attention and breath to the area being worked upon, ending with the head. Or., use breath focus for chakra alignment (begin at the root and work up to the crown). There are many varied practices both for mundane and for spiritual which may be enhanced by a developing a routine of conscious breath.

Meditation

Meditation is key to well being and to any spiritual practice. It is one of the main tools a Satanic Witch or Warlock could use to develop their growth and connection upon the Path. Meditation is one way in which a person may utilize intentional (conscious) breathe and breathing. Meditation is a way of training the brain to tune into varying levels of consciousness. It can help establish and foster a beneficial connection between mind, body and spirit. There are several different methods of meditation. Find the one that is right for you and for the purpose you are using it for. Very powerful magick is often conducted through visualization ,while conducting breath work while in a meditating. This is the core base of traditional folkloric witchcraft.

Don’t Let Fear Control You

Times are uncertain. There is a lot of tension in the atmosphere, not just in your environment but worldwide! Everyone is feeling the intensity as it escalates. Now, to add to this behemoth of fear and paranoia, war has broken out with Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Even if; this does not affect you on a personal level, within the societal, also the cosmic, mindset it does.

I have noticed how this escalating atmospheric tension has been affecting almost everyone. Especially; those within the bubbles of the online Satanic collective, where normally tension simmers. It appears to be boiling over now. Satanists are venting out their anger and fears by creating mini-wars amongst one another. Yes, online Satanists hold this reputation, but, as of recent, they have been executing the negative “Satanic” stereotype to be true. Rather than confront the source, be it a person or something underlying within, those claiming to be Satanists are dropping negative comments under the posts of other Satanists. Some, who dare to present on YouTube, passive-aggressively within their videos, take out their frustrations towards other Satanists or situations. I’ve even seen screenshots shared from Satanists, who are trying to create conspiracies against other Satanists. Needless, to say, most claiming the title “Satanist” are behaving very un-Satanic.

Devotees of Satan, if you are, caught up with such negativity and drama, just stop it! Creating conspiracies and creating a snake pit online, as a form of escapism, isn’t going to change reality. It’s not going to help you or anyone become closer with Satan. What you are doing is stagnating your progress and spiritual growth. If you are a Satanist, focus on what you are doing and your advancement. You don’t need to bother with how another individual; is walking the Path. Put your focus and heart on Satan.

There is so much going on in the world all the time, and stronger now, at this moment. Don’t allow the weight of the world and what is going on in the news to bring you down. If you have tension building within, you are not happy with what is happening, go to Satan’s altar, or close your eyes and find His voice within. Reach out to Satan rather than go online and troll or hate upon someone. You don’t know what others are going through themselves. Everyone is, feeling the effects of what is going on, and nobody needs additional pressure. You don’t realize that the hate you put upon them might bring them to physical harm, or worst, depending upon their struggles. Really, think about it before you jump into conspiring against another Satanist or anybody. Does anybody have time for such drama? Nobody needs this. Wasting time with gossip and hate definitely; is not serving Satan. Are you an online hater, a mere troll? Or are you an actual Satanist? How strong is your connection and commitment to Him?

Some of you ask, why does Satan permit the world, His world, to crumble? Why doesn’t Satan “save us”?
Satan gives us free will and does not intervene with our decisions. Including the decisions made by world “leaders.” As I had stated in my book “Lucifer a Devotional” Satan doesn’t create war, famine, or illness, but He does overlook such events without interference. Satan is not a “Savior,” He will let you fall and watch you struggle, He will guide you through whatever, but only if you reach out and ask. However, Satan will not spoon feed you nor will He do for you what you need to do for yourself, on your own! Sometimes, Satan will set you up to fall so that he can oversee if you are able to crawl back up from the Abyss, what you learn through the experience, and how you will apply it. And because of this, it is up to the devotee of Satan to be strong, learn from their mistakes, and make their proper choices. As a Satanist, you need to be self-sufficient and self-reliant.
You may always seek advice from others and also discuss matters with other trusted Satanists, to help influence your choices. But, in the end, trust in yourself, your intuition, and always go first to Satan for guidance. Even if you think He isn’t listening, He is!

The Satanist Rev. Cain speaks of the three sins of the Infernal Circle, which are, Malice, False Judgement, and Arrogance. With the chaotic energy this recent world crisis has launched into the world, we need to take a step back. As Satanists, we cannot allow fear to rule us, nor the hate that stems from it. We need to be mindful not to fall into either of these Infernal Sins, which Rev. Cain speaks.

All the online bickering is petty and a waste of personal energy. Why should you put so much self-importance into unimportant matters when the real world is crying out? Be grateful that you are not in Ukraine right now. Our Lord Satan’s current holds compassion, self-preservation, and Satan himself is the denouncement of tyranny. Be proud to be a Satanist, be worthy to represent Him, carry forth His tenants.

We need to keep focused and devoted. Satanists. At this time, we need to send out positive thoughts and focus to Ukraine, but also to those Russians who have nothing to do with wanting this crisis. We need to be mindful and wise, not to hate’ upon one group while defending another. Don’t judge a person based on the politics of their country, or, the country of their ancestors.

Satanic Blessings-Hail Satan!

When Will They Learn?

I know that I posted this on all of my social media haunts, however, considering that what I put out has some power of influence, I felt the need to compile this vital message here also. What is stated below needs to sink into the heads of many of today’s Theistic Satanists. Mostly for those who are new but also some blinded oldies upon the Path too.

When are new Satanists and even a few well-seasoned ones, going to learn that Satanism is not a “safe space” Satanism + Satanists are not about love & light. Satanic Facebook groups are a breeding ground for hate and false information. Know that a post in a Facebook group even, if it is private, becomes material shared with an opposing group to create gossip, and worse, against the poster or source it originated. There are always spies, thieves, and jealous haters that pretend to be friends within the group. Also, some who join such groups are only posing as Satanists for whatever agenda they are filling (some are Christians who want info about Satanists to use it against them elsewhere or bring actual harm to an individual). It has always been this way since the early 2000s when Satanists began to congregate online. It was filled with drama, as it is now. And this will never change because herding into a communal structure is against the nature of the Satanist. Herd conformity and group mindset are what Satanism opposes. Excluding Facebook pages for actual Satanic Organizations. Random Satanic groups creating “safe spaces” or just trying to get Satanists to come together under one umbrella are not helping Theistic Satanism to be respected, grow, and be taken seriously. None of this is helping Satanists become closer to Satan or come into their own unique walk upon His path.

Online Satanists, who just don’t seem to want to get it, never learn and keep crying out for “Satanic Community.” Never acknowledging that such is an oxymoron. Satanism and Community are two very conflicting words. It’s like saying “war for peace” or “hate to bring love” it just isn’t logical.

Many Satanists, especially those new upon the Path, complain to me with great sadness about all the drama they see within the Satanic “community’. As for myself, along with several elder Satanists, we will tell you- “THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A SATANIC COMMUNITY!” Such a notion reflects the polar opposite of what Satanism is. The concept conflicts with Satan’s current. When these new Satanists and some blinded seasoned Satanists decide to wake up and realize this, the drama will end. Maybe only then will Theistic Satanists be able to make progress for Theistic Satanism as a collective.

*If I haven’t already gotten the reputation of being the Satanic “Witch Bitch”, this short article just might be the icing on the cake. I’m perfectly fine with it. Some things just need to be said and good seeds need to be planted – Hail Satan!

Is Satanism Racism?

Overall my years as a Satanist and author, I never thought that I would be presenting a blog article like I am offering to you today. I never felt it would be necessary, especially with how much more inclusive the world appears to be in this modern age, but sadly it is.

Back in the early 2000s, when the online occult was just awakening, Satanists began to congregate in online forums and chat groups. Just as in the Facebook groups today, it didn’t take long before egos inflated and clashed, with most everybody wanting to become a “Satanic Leader.” Henceforth, Satanic “elitism” began to sprout. Now, I, myself, in the past, have been guilty of titling as an elitist, but by no means did I, or most people sporting such a title, mean it to refer to bigotry towards any ethnic minority. To be “elite” meant to set oneself apart from and above the mundane herd, the conformists. This mindset is from the influence of Anton LaVey’s Satanic Bible and the Church of Satan (more on LaVey later). Unfortunately, a small handful of Satanists, and those claiming the title, also claimed to be not only elitists but the Satanic Elite. This minority of Satanists cherry-picked the Satanic Bible added with various occult writings and rehashed what influenced them into a Satanic form of National Socialism, no different from the Christian National Socialist view but under the umbrella of Satanism.

Keep in mind, that even though some of these groups are established, running strong still today, and claim to be Theistic Satanists, they are not in it for Satan, nor do their politics have any place in Satanism. Many either running or are members in such Satanic hate groups are Christian National Socialists. As they did then, they still use the allure of Satanism to gain members to set forward their political agenda. Sound familiar?

Politics should NEVER be a part of Theistic Satanism. It should be left out and set aside from our religion. Each individual has the right to vote for whoever they wish and hold whatever views they want, as long as they are not outright hurting anyone in any which way or form. To be inclusive and open-minded is what we all should be and strive to be. Political views should never be brought into Satanic groups or presented at Satan’s Altar. When politics are incorporated, it becomes about that and not about Satan. When racism and bigotry of any kind infiltrate the Satanic realms, those communities are no longer about Satanism and become a breeding ground of hate and deceit.

Why am I writing about all of this?
In recent days of this writing, several Satanists, have brought to my attention racist commentary and outright personal attacks happening in various Satanic groups. One of these attacks was upon a friend who was part of a Facebook group that I had recently left-prior any of what transpired. My friend was attacked by another member of the group, who is the leader of a growing Satanic organization. All she did was question the name of his organization because it is a name that holds a rooted history from the Nazi era of Germany’s jaded past. Rather than consider what she had to disclose on the topic, or take in what she was enlightening both he and the group with, this person called her ignorant. My friend is Jewish and also an occultist. She is well educated on the matter, especially considering that the society associated with that Satanic organization’s name, was a Nazi group that almost wiped out her bloodline. My friend always held a polite tone, never used profanity or racial slurs when addressing the group, and that Satanic org’s leader. In turn, she was blocked by the Satanic “leader” and the group disrespected, mocked, and gaslighted her. I am not just taking my friend’s word on this outrageous racist attack upon her, several screenshots from the before and after, of all that transpired were shared with me in private. A few involved in the said group felt that they needed this to be exposed and turned to me.

During this time, another friend informed me how she had been band, for standing up against racism in another Satanic Facebook group, with nobody in that group voicing out with her. Aside from my friend, the group chose to remain silent while its leader spewed that she will never allow anyone black in the group because black people are Christian and can never be Satanists. This same person also stated to prove her point, that there are no black people in heavy metal. Really? In the screenshots I was shown, this “leader” was posting images from Solomonic grimoires, claiming them to be ancient Satanic symbols and saying that a black person would never understand those “Satanic” symbols. Obviously, that ignorant maggot doesn’t understand the symbols she’s posted either Lol!

All of this is only a drop in the massive ocean of ignorance and hate floating around the Satanist and LHP Occult realms online also sadly some in the offline world as well.
Many of these hate-preaching groups and individuals who outright attack others who do not fit into their anti-Semitic and other racist views, for whatever reason, like to base their Theistic Satanic practices upon the teachings of Anton Szandor LaVey, especially from what he has written in his Satanic Bible.

Here’s a Shocker for the anti-Semites:

Anton LaVey (Howard Stanton Levey) (April 11 1930-October 29th 1997) had Jewish blood.
-Some of these racist Satanic groups, influenced by LaVey, like to copy his lingo and use Shemhamforash in their rituals. This is not only a phrase that is very anti-Satan, it is a term used to describe the hidden name of God in Kabbalah. Originally Tannaitic but includes Christian and Hermetic variants with even some more mainstream Jewish discourses according to what I have found in a quick Google search. Either way, it is a term that any racist probably would feel stupid for using, once they have discovered its origin. Anton LaVey did not only have Jewish blood but he also was not racist in any way so, of course, LaVey had no problem incorporating this into his Satanic Bible.

In Conclusion:
Satanism is universal, it has no cultural roots. Satanists are free to incorporate anything from anywhere, that will help them to learn, grow, be strong, and enhance their life upon the Satanic current. You can stem from any ethnic background, be any gender or nongender, and branched off from any religion and choose to become a Satanist. If we are to look back again at Anton LaVey and his Church of Satan, LaVey accepted all walks of life and had initiated all walks as Satanists. I use LaVey as an example because the majority of these racist groups, base their practice on his teachings. LaVey’s teachings did not discriminate against any ethnic group or minority.

There is no superior race. There are superior individuals though. Superior to those who chose to stay ignorant. We can say that true Satanists and real Satanism are superior or should be superior in mind., for it is not only inclusive, but it also strives to educate itself with individual Satanists striving to be free of all the negative stereotypes put upon Satanists by media and opposing religions. Online racists, calling themselves Satanists, who attack behind a screen, using their keyboards as their cowardly weapons, certainly are not helping Satanism to be taken seriously. Such racist Satanic groups are only feeding into the negative stereotype of how Satanists are perceived by the outside world. They also are making it all about them and their agenda to gain either popularity, profit, or both. They are steering everyone involved, their members and their victims, away from Satan!
Satanism, especially Theistic Satanism, should be all about Satan and the personal connection each individual Satanist has with Him.

Racist hate and hate in general stems from insecure individuals who don’t know their true selves. They need to build up a persona for themselves, a mask. Such people rarely act on their own, they need the comfort of a group, either of like-minded individuals or those whom they feel they can manipulate and poison with their negative ideology. They like to “herd” now how unsatanic is that. Their hate is spawned from fear, a lack of understanding, their inability to comprehend, and their refusal to expand their minds enough to educate themselves on a matter without being self-defensive. They rather cling to their delusions than admit they were wrong or think before acting.
Real Satanists are in it for Satan and do not waste personal energy on something as pathetic as hate. There is no logic nor justification for racial slurs, verbal or physical attack, or using offensive titles to appear edgy. No logic in trying to make Satanism a one-race religion. Such actions are not of Satan.

To those discriminatory racist Satanists who have a problem with skin shades other than white, did you even realize that Satan the Devil, is often referred to as the “Black Man” or the “Man in Black” and throughout Western European folklore He is described as having the blackest skin? There is so much more I could add but typing all which I have presented herein has been taxing on my pained fingers, so I will leave you this final thought;
Satan accepts everyone willing to face Him. Anyone who sincerely comes to His Altar. If anyone really knows what it is like to be discriminated against, it’s Satan.

*To quote T.C. Downey, in his video “I Want You To Hate Me” posted June 13th, 2010

“You don’t hate, because if you do hate, chances are, you’re on the wrong side of the coin”

2022 Satanic Landmark (Happy New Year, Dark Blessings)

I know that I am a tad late with this post but either way, just wanted to wish everyone who sees this a very HAPPY NEW YEAR! The Devil’s road is not an easy path to walk, I admire those of you who have come out from the shadows, openly letting the world know that you are a devotee of Satan. To those who are unable to put themselves out in such a way, I truly understand your reasons. You would think that in this modern age, with ongoing fights for social justice, freedom of speech, and religious rights, that it would be no big deal to publicly claim the title Satanist. Sadly, for those of us who honor and worship the actual Devil for being who He is, a real sentient being, much more than a mere symbol, we are still not acknowledged. Actually, for standing out as being a true Devil Worshipper, we are ridiculed, and attacked, verbally but in some cases physically. Coming out as being an actual Satanist, one risks the loss of a job, friends, and even being shunned by family. Depending on where you live, coming out as a Satanist might even attract unwanted attention from the law. So I applaud those who are able to come out into the open, and I mean really come out. Not those hiding behind a mask and pseudo persona online. But, those who are open as Satanists in both the online and offline world, not hiding their face and who are making a good impression for Satan and Satanists in general. Those of you who have done this, are making more progress for Satanism than you can imagine. You are making a difference and setting the foundation for those who are not able to come out as of yet.

No matter where you are within your Satanism, if you have put yourself out there or are unable to, know that you matter. Satan called you to His path for a reason., honor HIm, forge your way forward. It is up to all Theistic Satanists to make a positive imprint of Satanism in this world, His world. It is up to us, to change how the outside world, how society sees us. Satan, and Satanism, deserves respect and be acknowledged. Know that as a Satanist, how you present yourself both online and off, is how the world will see Satanism and judge Satanists in general. Individual Satanists and Satanic groups, will never all get along, nor should they be expected to, however, as a whole, one thing we all should agree upon, is to strive that Satanism and we as Satanists be taken seriously. Wouldn’t it be an accomplishment if we broke the negative stereotypes and one day when filling out any sort of official paperwork such as a job application, renewing a passport, or something for the government, that in the section where it asks what religion are you, rather than marking “other” that Satanism would be an option?

We need to start with baby steps. What a better year to put the Satanic wheels into motion. 2022 should be seen as one of those years that is a Satanic landmark. Look at the simple numerology of it for example. 2022= 2+0+2+2=6 Now keeping this in mind and thinking of the month of June 2022, on the 6th day of that month would signify 666. The 6th day of the 6th month of the year 2022 equates to 6. Now many of us know that this number stems from the bible’s book of revelations, chapter 13, verse 18 and that the bible, in general, is all political. That 666 is the number to represent the Roman Emperor, Nero Caesar. BUT, considering for a great many years, preachers, musicians, filmmakers, and etc. have mistakenly taken 666 to mean Satan’s number, the number which all claimed by Satan will bear! It has become sort of a Satanic nostalgia. Okay, a stereotype but not that much of a bad one. Many modern Satanists have embraced 666 along with the regular inverted cross (thanks to black metal and horror film), which again most of us know the origin has nothing to do with Satan. The true Satanic symbol of blasphemy against the church would be the actual crucifix -but that’s another story altogether. The point I’m trying to make is that why not embrace this year as one of the Satanic landmarks in calendar history and make it a starting point to set serious goals to putting Satan and Satanism under a positive light in a world that only sees darkness upon us. 

Hope that everyone reading this has had a wonderful holiday season, also a very Satanic one as well. The above is just to lend some food for thought, something to play around with or be amused by. Enjoy! May Lucifer’s Light shine upon your 2022.

Satanic Blessings, Kindra Ravenmoon.

Bad? Good? Demons & Angels-What Happened?

The words devil and demon are not English words by origin, but were borrowed from Greek. The English word demon was taken directly from the Latin daemon, which, in turn, goes back to the Greek daimon or daimonion. In Pagan Greece, a demon was a kind of immaterial or spiritual Being who occupied a position in the universe somewhere between the realm of humanity and that of the gods, and could travel and exist into either realm. Demons also were believed to serve as intermediates between humans and gods, relaying messages or demands from either party to the other. It was at one point believed that a mere human could not directly communicate with the gods and needed to commission a demon to relay their requests. With this in mind, it must be noted that demons were always regarded as having their own minds and could not be controlled, they acted on their on accord. A demon could either chose to aid a human or not, they were and are not simple messengers. In ancient times, demons were not seen as malevolent, they were either benevolent or indifferent towards humanity.

The Greek word daimon was also barrowed into Latin as diabolus. As Latin evolved into French, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian, the Latin word became diable in French, diablo in Spanish, diabo in Portuguese and diavolo in Italian. Like many things, the meanings of the words demon and devil were greatly changed and were poisoned by the coming of the monotheistic religions., Judaism and Christianity. The Hebrew scriptures (including some books that the rabbis would later reject) were translated into Greek by Greek speaking Jews, this took place as early as the 4th century, before the Christian era. This old Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible is usually known as the Septuagint. It has an enormous influence on books of the New Testament, which were also written in Greek. In the Septuagint the kind of spiritual Being that the Pagan Greeks referred to as a demon, identity became twisted. The name demon (daimon or daimonion) was still used but more often, however, became interchanged with the work angel (angelos). The Greek word angelos simply means messenger and it originally, according to the ancient Greeks, referred to ordinary people who carried messages. When applied to demons it, the word emphasizes upon only one of the functions these Beings have. It became forgotten that demons act upon their own will and not the will of humans, unlike angels who act upon the will of Yahweh or any powerful magi who is able to control them, angels do not act on their own accord. In the Septuagint, as in the New Testament, the similarity noted between angels and demons is that they each hold no moral difference. Each can behave in manners and preform acts, that can be seen as being either “good” or “evil” It must be noted that despite the popular belief that angels are good because they are “Yahweh/Gods” messengers and that demons are the evil messengers of the Devil , has no basis in the Bible. This misconception is a Christian and Jewish belief that developed much later on.

Demonizing the Old Gods: For monotheists, the many gods and goddesses of the Pagan Greeks could not be thought of as actual Gods, but had to be called by some other word. The early Christians, like the Jews, had no doubts about the existence of these gods, but they saw them as subordinate Beings under heir One God. Since the word demon originally referred to spiritual Beings subordinate to the Pagan Gods, Jewish monotheists extended its range to cover Pagan Gods as well “For all the Gods of the Pagans are demons”, so claims the Septuagint (Psalm 95:5). *In Hebrew and English Bibles, this is Psalm 96:5. Christians soon followed suit, beginning with Paul “Pagan sacrifices before images of their Gods are sacrifices to demons (daimonia), not to God” (I Corinthians 10:20). Christians were to shun these sacrifices, which are a form of idolatry, as hey would shun any sin. Basically, it is jumped to the notion that all Pagan Gods are evil Beings, and one small jump further turns every demon into an evil Being. And, this is in brief why demons are popularized even today as being “bad” and anything dealing with angels to be “good”

In Summary: Demons, have been with us almost since the dawn of time, the Beings known as angels came into existence during the rise of monotheistic religions. Many new to the occult today, tend to confuse angels and demons as being the same type of spiritual Being, even some, who have been upon the study of the occult sciences for many years, tend to make this error as well. From the above article, we can see where this confusion came about and how those in today’s modern age, looking for answers within the realms of the occult, can make this mistake. Religious authorities throughout the centuries have always found ways to twist and bend the ancient myths, along with the meanings of various terminologies, so to suit their religion’s structure and stories. How the original meaning of what a demon is and how it has become degraded, is a great example. For the record: Demons and angels might be Beings that ride upon the same frequency, however, this does not mean that they are the same species. Demons hold their own intelligence, their own mind, and will. Demons are primal. Angels hold none of this, their existence when compared with demons, is rather new. It is the false teachings and lies of the three dominant monotheistic religions of this world who falsely claim demons to be evil and inferior. With proper research into occurrences within ancient history and myth, pre-dating these religions, one can see through the lies told by these religions. Demons are divine, meaning that they are godlike, in some cases, depending on the demon, can be seen as lesser gods (know that some claimed to be demons, were once known as ancient gods, but got “demonized” by monotheistic religions, while others always have been actual demons). Demons have been around since the beginnings of the Earth, they are before and above humanity, but are slightly under the primordial Gods (which are few).

Winter Solstice Prayer To Satan

The Winter Solstice, (also known as Yule) marks the longest night of the year. For Satanic Witches and Warlocks, this marks the year’s final High Sabbat. A time of high frequency that makes it great for working magick, and also, working with spirits. Aside from a Satanist’s birthday, the Solstices, Equinoxes, Walpurgis, and Halloween are the most important holidays a Satanist may honor. Various Satanists acknowledge differing additional holidays, depending on the group, organization, coven, or individual.

Some new to Satanism, along with a few well-seasoned Satanists, that stem from a strict religious background such as Catholicism, might hold an offense towards this holiday season. In most cases, this is due to these Satanists failing to look past their association of Christmas with Christianity. Some, have trouble disassociating Yule with today’s neo-Pagan movement. They forget that the origin of these winter holidays was pre-Christian. Satanism is universal. It is not bound to any particular tradition or ancestral background. We are all birthed from the ancient Pagans of various lands worldwide, this includes the Christians. Nobody really knows the exact origins and celebrations of the ancient pre-Christian holidays nor the celebrations stemming from beyond other such ancient religions. It is safe to say that the holidays we honor in these modern times are an amalgamation of several traditions’ celebrations and beliefs. Today’s Christians and “New” Pagans have taken it upon themselves to claim and reclaim these holidays, dictating each, into the structure and belief system of their religion and spirituality. There is nothing wrong with Satanists reclaiming these same holidays. Celebrating in a manner seen fit to create a unique Satanic path’s traditions.

In my upcoming book on Satanism and Witchcraft, I elaborate more upon the Satanic Holidays. For now, I ask each Theistic Satanist to ponder upon this-Satanism is about honoring and celebrating Satan. Honor yourself, and in doing so, to not deprive yourself of anything if you can help it. Satan wants you to be happy, to feel joy, especially when celebrating Him, honoring Him at His altar. Throughout folklore and history, hasn’t it been noted that the Devil, likes a good party? Satan wants you to be free from restrictions, not to let the shackles of imposter, imposing religions rule you. He doesn’t want you to fall victim to their dictations. Satan wants you to rise above. Be free to indulge in all of life’s pleasures. This includes, good food, great rituals and celebrations.

This year, the Solstice falls on the 21st. Know that the dates of the Solstices and Equinoxes fluctuate anywhere from the 19th-23rd of the months they fall on. Solstices and Equinoxes are natural occurrences ruled by planetary alignments. These cross-quarter days that mark the seasonal changes, when compared to any other holidays, are the most natural and universal. These high-frequency periods affect everyone, both the magical and the profane, worldwide, even if not acknowledged in some special way.

Below is a Winter Solstice/Yule Prayer for Satan, that you may use when at His altar this holiday. Here is a link to a video I encourage you to watch. You will see why this entire holiday season is purely Satanic, how imposter religions denied it but then tried to claim it and why. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8xgSFbfOABg

Satanic Winter Solstice Prayer/ A Yule Prayer for Satan

In this darksome time of longest night Satan I call upon you to be here with me. Father I am grateful for that which I have, I am not sorrowful for what I lack. You have bestowed blessings upon me, I am blessed for all that I have. Everything I have is yours, you have given to me, and anything I am in need of , all I have to do is ask. Satan, you always hear me, you listen to my prayers and fulfil my requests, if it is what I truly need. You are a giving father, but not for naught. I know that I must put in some work, all is not freely given.

Satan, this is the darkest of the natural cycles, your power is intoxicating. I feel you around me, in me, and beyond. Satan lend me protection during this dark time, guide me into the new year. May Lucifer’s Light shine down upon me, bringing me abundance, warmth, and growth in all aspects of my life.

Father,

Satan, I am thankful for my health and for the healing you bring to me. Satan, I am thankful for the roof over my head, you always provide the shelter I need. Satan, I am thankful for my chosen family (you may name specific people and or pets individually), may I lose those who do not serve my best interest, keeping only the ones who are my true loyal tribe. Satan, I am most of all thankful to be your child, your devotee. I will continue to do my best to serve in your honor.

The longest night has come, the wheel has turned once more. The sun has set, the earth’s asleep, the skies are cold as total blackness prevails. On this night of nights, I rejoice at your altar, embracing your total darkness. I embrace it all, all that is you, Satan! Master!, Father. I shed from my being, all that I no longer need, all that does not serve me, I leave myself open to receive your gifts. I am ready receive what awaits as the sun rises and grows stronger, after this day, after this night. I am vulnerable only unto you, take me Satan, take me as I am. Through the Black Flame you have implanted within me, I will rise above!

Thank you Father!

Ave Satanas, Hail Satan!

Ave Satanas, Hail Satan!

Ave Satanas, Hail Satan!

The Devil’s Familiar

Phantom black dogs are sometimes considered to be benevolent, however the most common belief is that they hold a more sinister aspect. The black dog omen, be it benevolent or malevolent, depends upon where and when the dog appears. These esoteric creatures are known to frequent crossroads and places where an execution/murder has taken place. It is said that you are most likely to encounter one of these dogs if you are out in the night during an electric storm.

Black Dogs In Association With The Devil: In Germany as in Scandinavian lands, the witches in the Highlands, believed the black dog to be Satan, Himself. In most parts of the British Isles, the black dog is seen as the Devil’s familiar. Since witches were believed to be in league with the Devil, it is possible that in distant past, people believed that witches shapeshifted into the Devil’s form, a black dog or rode upon black dogs to travel to the Witches’ Sabbat.

Omens of Death: In Welsh mythology, Annwn are the spectra hounds of the Otherworld. Hearing the hounds on the mountain of Cadair Idris (a mountain near the town of Dolgellau) foretold your death. According to Welsh folklore, these hounds sound loudest at a distance, becoming quieter as they draw nearer. In East Anglia, the black dog’s name is Black Shuck. He has only one eye, placed in the middle of his head. He haunts dark lanes and deserted field footpaths. Black Shuck’s paws are silent as they walk the ground, you know he’s around by the sound of his howl. Legend states that if you encounter him, you will die within the year, but if you shut your eyes before he appears, you will cheat death’s grip, avoiding your demise. According to the legends of the Maldon and Dengie area in Essex, your death will occur immeditatly if you encounter this creature, there is no saving yourself by closing your eyes.

As Psychopomps: Spectral black dogs can also be guides to the realm of the dead. Their role isn’t to cause death but rather to escort souls of the newly dead, to the afterlife. A well known example of this, would be the Egyptian god Anubis. Anubis attends the weighing of the heart which determines weather or not a soul is allowed to enter the realm of the dead.

The Guardians of the Underworld: Black dogs are known to be the guardians at the entrances of the Underworld or land of the dead. An example taken from Greek mythology, would be the three headed watchdog of Hades, Cerberus. His job is to prevent the dead from leaving Hades. Hellhounds, are another form of black dog. They are not only the guardians of the realm of the dead , they also hunt down lost souls and guide them to their destination.

Protectors: Some myths and legends put black dogs as protectors, supernatural guardians. There are several stories of lost travelers or those walking through the country side who find that they have a mysterious black dog following them, watching over. In some cases protecting the person from those who would mean them harm.

Ghostly black dogs and black dog symbolism, myth and folklore go back centuries. Like most other black animals, the black dog is linked with Satan and in my opinion such an association should be seen as honorable. To know more on the black dog in folklore, I highly recommend reading “Black Dog Folklore” by Mark Norman”

Queen of Death & Darkness

The Norse goddess Hel found her home beneath the giant ash tree known in Norse mythology as the Yggdrasil. This tree connects the upper, lower, and middle worlds together, as above, so below, as within, so without. Guarded by her faithful dog Garmer, Hel rules the icy-cold of the underworld, a place called Nifelheim. According to early Norse myth, this is where all dead souls either spent their afterlife in burial mounds, which were watched over by attendants of Hel or these souls joined the goddess in her murky domain. In later legends, heroes, slain in battle, were rewarded by Odin with a new life spent in the halls of Valhalla and all those who died by other means or not chosen by Odin, were met by Hel in the Underworld.

According to myth, Hel is sometimes presented as being harsh, greedy, and cruel but she mostly is displayed with a character that is indifferent to the concerns of both the living and the dead. She can be quite aloof. Her appearance can either be with having one side of her being in flesh and the other side skeletal. Or, she is half corpse-blue and half flesh-colored. Either-way her appearance is of a gloomy downcast. As being the Queen of Hel/Hell and of Death, Hel is often seen by scholars as being a face of Lilith.

Some Properties, Powers, and Associations with the goddess Hel:

*life, death, and rebirth *Necromancy *manipulation of ice and the elements of water and earth *manipulation of death and disease * healing *astral travel and the realm of dream *induces sleep *divination *animal communication *protection and returning to sender, also revenge. Animals associated with: dog, wolf, snake, raven, crow. Herbs and Flowers associated with: rue, wormwood (considered a poison plant), plantain, red rose, trees-elder + yew, belladonna (poisonous), henbane (poisonous).

As with the Greek god of the Underworld, Hades, whose name and home bore the same name, we can take from Hel the English word “Hell” . Hel from an Old Norse root meaning “covered” or “concealed” Hel’s underworld is described as gloomy, but it is not a place of torment and torture. There is no concept of punishment for earthly sins. It simply is a place for those who do not belong anywhere else. Linked in kin with Hel and her underworld were the fierce wolf Fenrir and serpent Jörmungandr (world serpent). All three were fathered by the Norse god Loki, known to be handsome, sly, and dangerous. According to an oracle, Loki would eventually bring the downfall of the Gods and the victory of chaos, as the world ends. Loki in this sense is highly anti-cosmic.

This is just a short insert to lend something different to this blog. Satanists can find Satanic elements through the dark characters of myths such as this, plus it always makes for an interesting read.

Devil’s Coven, Full Moon Scrying Ritual

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.

The Ritual

*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

Nema!

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

*Disclaimer: The invocation and prayers used are barrowed from Anton Szandor LaVey’s “The Satanic Bible” and Peter Gilmore’s “The Satanic Scriptures” All has been modified/tweaked by me (Kindra Ravenmoon) to fit this full moon scrying ritual.

The Power of Horns & Satan as The Horned God of Antiquity

The greatest temple ever built was that of Karnak in Ancient Egypt. It was in honor of the horned god Ammon-Ra, who bore the curling horns of the ram. The attribute of horns as a symbol of power was widespread throughout the ancient world. Many Egyptian deities were depicted with horned headdresses. In Ancient Crete, to set up a pair of horns was a sign of a sacred place. The oldest known representations of masculine deity, are the painted pictures of horned ithyphallic figures found in caves, dating back to the Stone Age. The connection between this most primeval of gods, and the sophisticated, wide-ruling deities of Ancient Egypt, is far stretched, but quite clearly traceable. This stretch continues and reaches out again to the Great God Pan, who is often associated with the witches’ Devil – Satan! And, also to the Celtic Cerrnunnos, “The Horned One” (another title bestowed upon Satanas). As Cernunnos, He was worshipped in Celtic Europe and Ancient Britain. Many horned god statues have been discovered in Britain, and a temple to Him (Satan) as Cernunnus stood upon the site of the Church of Nortre Dame in Paris. Reaching into the witches’ Sabbat, the horned god is addressed by various names: The Devil, Auld Hornie, Nick, Clootie, Pan, and of course Satan (Satanas/Sathanas, or Lucifer).

Horns represent sacredness, power, and protection. They also stand for illumination and gnosis. On the Continent of Europe, horns were, and still are, an extremely popular amulet against the “Evil Eye”. The idea that there is something magical about horns derives from a very distant past, the time before humans discovered agriculture. When our remote ancestors, the primitive hunters, roamed the land in search of wild game for food. It is of no surprise why Satan has been reflected as being a horned god, why he appears to many of His devotees, as being horned. As being the horned god of the witches, Satan has absorbed the attributes, the characteristics of several horned gods created by the pagans, also by more modern man.

Satan as the horned god is the masculine side of Nature (His bride, the Goddess, who also goes by many names, is the feminine side ), and his current runs through this planet. He is the ruler of this world and of the Underworld or Otherworld. He opens the Gates of Life and Death, that which is born through the Gate of Life must return through the Gate of Death when the time comes to leave this plane of existence. It was the grass-roots of antiquity, of the old Horned God, that made the acknowledgment of His existence survive, when more sophisticated god-forms were forgotten. He was from the morning of the world, deep down in the memory of humankind, among the primeval things. The impression of Satan as being a horned god has lasted longer because it is deeper.

Halloween For Satanists

For 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 when the gateways open after the lifting of the veil between the realm of spirit and the world of humankind.

Satan and You

Many new and also those who are seasoned upon the Devil’s Path come to me in question if they are “doing it right” My reply for everyone is the same; Satan called to you to walk His path, don’t doubt yourself. Trust Satan, and trust your intuition He, is guiding it. Listen to the message that Satan has uniquely for you. It is fine to take inspiration from others and to learn all that you can from all sources which you feel pulled towards. But know that not everything is meant to be incorporated into your Satanic practice and never allow yourself to be pulled into the trapping of someone else’s practice. Never allow anyone to dictate how you should practice your Satanism or how you should view Satan. That is strictly up to you to decide, it is between you and Satan. When in doubt, spend time at Satan’s altar and pray, meditate or simply just speak out to Satan and ask His guidance. Satan will let you know how He wishes for you to connect with Him. Satan will guide you through your intuition, put thoughts in your mind through your dreams, or while in meditation. You might just have a strong sense of knowing.

Your connection and communication with Satan are personal unto you. Know that as a devotee of Satanas, that He is always with you, even when you are engaging in mundane actions in the profane world. You can speak to Satan whenever you feel the need, anywhere at any time. If you are in a place where verbalizing your words to Satan is not possible due to lack of privacy or whatever the reason, just speak to Him through your mind. Satan knows your mind and what’s in your heart. If you are a sincere devotee of the Devil, if you are sincere in your practice, that’s all that matters, there is no wrong way you can connect.

As a Theistic Satanist, you don’t need to join any groups or organizations. Satanists are not conformists, we do not follow any herd even if it’s under the LHP umbrella. My advice to anyone who feels the need to share their Satanism, their experiences with those of like mind, is to find colleagues and allies, the small the number the more honest and less drama-free these interactions will be. Know that if you have to pay money to lend your time to another just so that you can learn from what they have to share online or so that they will acknowledge your existence, then this is not worth your time or effort. Such people or groups do not care about you, only what you are paying into their cause. They do not value your worth nor care about how you connect with Satan. By, lending personal time, energy, and resources to such causes in hopes to learn Satanism or Satanic magick, is taking you further away from your unique connection with Satan and your practice of Satanism rather than help it to grow stronger. You end up feeding into someone else’s practice helping them to grow and also to connect more with their desires. Do your research rather than trusting what someone else might be teaching and incorporate into your practice what resonates with you and leave the rest. Know also that you do not have to practice any form of magick to be a Satanist. Theistic Satanism concern is devotion and worship of Satan, nothing more. Only some upon this path are magical practitioners. Don’t feel you have to conduct elaborate rituals and perform curses etc.. such can be incorporated into one’s Satanic practice but it is not necessary nor by origin is it a part of Theistic Satanism.

If you’re a Satanist, you are not a follower nor would you help feed another’s practice and resources over your own-Think about it. Find those few who you can freely share with and learn from while engaging socially online or off, without any loss of your time or resources, monetary or other. You felt drawn towards Theistic Satanism for a reason, Satan chose to reach out to you, you accepted and responded to His call. Trust in that and be your authentic Satanic self. Satan will not lead you astray so don’t allow self-doubt to lead you astray and running after pipe dreams.

Satanic Community?

There is a misconception among those new and fairly new to Satanism that there is a Satanic community. The concept of Satanism and community in general is an oxymoron. This false concept is something that self-proclaimed Satanic leaders from the past, would push, in an attempt to grow a following. Ever since Satanists have been presenting on the internet, there have been those who have attempted in creating a Satanic community, and each has failed, greatly! The problem is that those who preach community within Satanism are wanting to become its leader, in order to gain popularity to feed their weak, unbalanced egos. Also, more than not, it is used to make a monetary profit from their following “the community” . It is pushed by these pseudo “Satanic” leaders, that a Satanic community really does exist. They fail to mention that by “community” they mean, those who follow them, who pay into their vision of Satanism, who donate personal time and money to them. When such “leaders” are questioned or if anyone disagrees with anything they preach, they take a tantrum. Either by lashing out and bashing the one who dared to contradict them, trying to turn others against the said person. Or they gaslight the person prior to blocking them on social media. In some cases all of this and sadly more. This is why in past and even still today, why attempt of bringing Satanists together as an actual community hasn’t been and never will be possible. It always will end in a crash and burn.

There is no denying that there are cliques of Satanists, Satanic groups, forums, and places where Satanists congregate both online and off. However, none of this equates to a communal concept of “Satanic Community”. We can loosely use the term “community” when pertaining to, for example, a Satanic Facebook page, but in reality, such a page is not representing what community means to all Satanists nor does everyone in the said group want to be a part of a community. Satanists are individualists and do not wish to be part of a herd mentality. Satanists do not follow a herd nor are they conformists. A Satanist lives a Satanic life which includes the concept of self-preservation and doing what is best for oneself. Therefore the community notion “for the greater good of all” is not a Satanic mindset.

The question has been posed if my podcast Devil’s Coven is a community, my reply is a strong No! To set it clear for those who thought differently, Devil’s Coven is a podcast. Its members who regularly tune in are called its coven. This does not equate to an actual coven nor does it to a community. Sharing knowledge, experiences, and raising energy through Satanic prayer together might be similar to an actual coven, a congregation, but this alone is not even close to what a community translates.

The only thing that we as Theistic Satanists have in common with each other, is the knowledge that Satan is a real sentient being. The only practice we hold in common is our devotion and worship to Satan. This is not enough to claim that we as Satanists, as a whole on the larger scale, are a community. Theistic Satanism with all of its denominations, is unlike any other path, unlike any other religion. Satanists, especially those new to His path, need to stop trying to make it so (stop trying to make it be like other paths which you once came from or which attracts you in some way). We as Theistic Satanists need to learn the difference between comradery and community, as of recent, it appease that Satanists within social media hubs, seem to have blurred the line between these two meanings. In my opinion, you either embrace Satanism or step off the path. Maybe another walk upon the LHP or another route altogether will be more suited for you. Know that there are several turns you can take when walking the Devil’s road.

Expressions Used in Satanism.

Hail Satan! A common phrase used by many Satanists, in order to express their dedication to Satan. This is an expression used by both atheist and theistic Satanists alike. Many Satanists from both denominations will also use the term Ave Satanas, or both of these together: Hail Satan! Ave Satanas! Know that Ave Satanas (also found as Ave Satana or Sathanas) equates to the same meaning as Hail Satan, it is simply a Latinized version.

Hail Satan, is not a modern invention, it actually is documented as far back as 1808, and found in a poem titled The Monk of Cambray. The poem is about an “evil” monk who makes a pact with Satan so to advance within the Catholic Church in order to become Pope. Ave Satanas (and its variant spellings) appears often in literature throughout the 1800s. Popular mentions still known in present day, would be the play titled “St. Clement’s Eve” (1862) and the novel titled “The Sorrows of Satan” (1895). In more modern times, the 1967 book “Rosemary’s Baby” , which later became a movie (classic), used Hail Satan. This made an impression upon Anton LaVey’s Church of Satan ( founded 1966). The Church of Satan also embraced the Latin version, Ave Satanas and would follow it up with Rege Satanas which translates to “Reign Satan”

Another term made popular by the Church of Satan but is used only by a few Theistic Satanists, is Shemhamforash. This is said at the end of every ritual and prayer, and is usually stated after Hail Satan; Hail Satan! Shemhamforash! Shemhamforash caught on with some modern occultists who might not work with Satan but will use in it alignment with other gods and rituals. This is a term which I debunked on my podcast Devil’s Coven, last Friday, Shemhamforash, has nothing to do with Satan. This is a Hebrew term which means “the explicit name”, and refers to the Hebrew God, most commonly “Yehweh”. We can only speculate that LaVey used this term either because he thought it sounded good in a romanticized way or he really didn’t properly research it and was oblivious to the fact that it’s translation “the explicit name” referred to Yehwah.

The fact that Satanists from both walks have been and continue to incorporate Shemhamforash into their Satanic rituals, proves how lazy most people truly are. To now take the time to do a simple research on the terms they are using rather than just rehash and reuse such terms taking everything at face value because a known Satanist put it out there. Even well seasoned Satanists and those who have founded Satanic groups and Orders, can make mistakes or even purposely present falsified information just for sensationalism and shock value. Satanists need to be diligent and rely upon their own research, and personal connection with Satanas.

The final term I will touch upon here, is Nema. I sometimes get asked by those new to Satanism, what does this mean? Nema is simply Amen reversed. Theistic Satanists have always used this. Nema is stated at the end of prayer and Satanic affirmations.

More details on these terms and their origins will be found in my upcoming book on Satanism and Witchcraft.

Not of Satan

I am writing this as a follow up to my recent podcast episode, on Devil’s Coven, titled “Devil’s Report (necessary topic of discussion). The premise of that discussion was to set clear some outrageous misconceptions and lies told about Satanism and Satan. I strongly feel that the core points from last Friday’s show, need to be addressed here. I’m going to just jump into it.

Myself, along with several other Satanists, some being well seasoned upon His path, have noticed a growing trend within social media platforms such as: Instagram, Tik Tok, and Facebook. Satanism and the Left Hand Path in general, have become a hot fashionable topic, the new “in thing” . Theistic Satanism is being marketed as a free for all, love and light community where anything goes, as long as everyone can get along. This “new” trend, preaches that Satanism will bring you balance through bringing the RHP (Right -Hand Path) and LHP (Left-Hand Path) together. This equates the RHP with “Light” and LHP with “Dark” , basically bringing what is considered to be “good” together with what is considered to be “evil”. These trend setters, are trying to make a name for themselves through the mentioned platforms listed above, and are dictating to seekers, that it is necessary to have one foot on the RHP and the other on the LHP. Making matters worse, these social media trend setters are preaching that Satanists work with both angels and demons. That it is recommended to bring both of these beings into one’s ritual or sacred space, also to Satan’s altar. If anyone contradicts this, especially a well Seasoned Satanist, they are told that they are close-minded, if they ask Satan, He will tell them that He is okay with it- REALLY? To make matters worse, another new trend is being set to coincide with this one. The newest trend is stating that Jesus and Lucifer or Jesus and Satan are one and the same. That Satan/Lucifer is Jesus’s darker half. I kid you not, I have seen images posted on Instagram with Jesus statues upon a supposed, Satanic altar, even altar banners with a crucifix in the upright position, in the center of an inverted pentagram. WTF?

Many seekers called to Satan’s altar, are those who have or are trying to, break away from the chains of Christianity. All of these new sensationalized outrageous trends are highly confusing for them. These trends are also confusing and an outrage, to us, Satanists who have been authentically upon the Devil’s Path for many years. It is sad, also angering to know that many new seekers who are authentically called to Satan are bullied by these wannabe trend setters. Also, that these trend setters have the nerve to called down Satanic leaders and those who have been presenting Satanism online ever since the internet was a thing. I often wonder, if these social media platform “Satanists” even know a thing about Satanism, the core of its beliefs and practices in general, or even who Satan actually is? Have they ever attempted to make honest, direct contact with Satan? My strong assumption is not! How could anyone who has a direct link to Satan even consider presenting what they are pushing?

Some core facts in case the truth isn’t evident:

  • Authentic, well seasoned Satanists do not need to be told to be open-minded when they do not accept online trends and BS. They do have a direct personal communication with Satan and know that Satan is not okay with any of these new crackerjack concepts.
  • Satan is NOT okay with angels or Jesus being brought to His altar or into His devotee’s sacred space.
  • Satan would not be happy with his devotees honoring His adversaries.
  • Demons and angels do not get along. Nor is it safe to bring both together into your ritual space (if you are even capable of inviting/summoning actual angels and demons to begin with, rather than just “play” occult).
  • If you work with angels and or Jesus, you are NOT a Satanist!
  • You might be a LHP Occultist, Black Magician, or Luciferian, if you want to work with angels or do work with angels or what is termed as being Enochain magic/k, along with what you consider to be demonic forces. But, then, you certainly are NOT a Satanist.
  • Satanism is not like eclectic Americanized Wicca. The anything goes attitude is not a thing in actual Satanism. Nor is the love and light, “we’re family” attitude. If you feel aligned with following a form of LHP herd and herd mentality of “family”, community, love and light, that’s fine but this is not Satanism, Satanism isn’t for you, you are not a Satanist.
  • Satanism is the path of the individual. Theistic Satanism believes in the actual Devil. We know Satan to be a real sentient being, He is our god with no other above Him.
  • It is wrong to bully people and bring them down if they do not agree with your dictation.
  • It is wrong to push your path onto others and preach it to be the only way. Doing so makes you no better than an evangelical Christian.
  • Know that not everyone who claims to work with Satan is a Satanist. There are other traditions under the LHP umbrella who work with and view Satan differently than Theistic Satanists do. Do no confuse what you see from these other teachings with Satanism. Learn from all sources but know how to differentiate between them.
  • Know that the Satanic Panic is a thing still occurring today and it is a form of modern day witch hunt. In present day the hunt begins online. Know that not everyone identifying as a Satanist online is one. Most pretend to be Satanists, are only using the title online and are out to harm or discredit you in someway. There are many Christian “witch hunters” online, hunting the social media platforms and infiltrating or even creating, chat forums and social media groups, pretending to be Satanists. These posers have 1 of 2 things in mind for doing this- Either to gain your trust, gather what they can to use against you for bullying, discrediting, stealing your ideas or finding out where you live to execute physical harm to you. Or they try to change how Satanism appears so that they can slowly and indirectly convert you to their god. Now, what better way to get a Satanic seeker to come back to Christianity or become a new convert to it, than to get them to accept and work with angels. The latter seems to be the thing now.

Satanists both new and old, need to open their eyes and see the bigger picture. Do you know anything about the personal lives of those preaching to work with angels? Who are these tenders really? Be mindful and be warned!

The Satanic Panic Today

In America during the 1980s is where it all began, when a sudden moral panic, which became known as the Satanic Panic, arouse. Hundreds of false accusations of the abuse of children in satanic rituals and the danger of Satanic cults with their thirst for both animal and human sacrifice, spread across the United States. Media attention opened a floodgate which led to a worldwide spread of this moral panic’s infestation, which leaked well into the 1990s.

Allegations involved a conspiracy that a global Satanic cult which included the wealthy and powerful rich elite of the world, along with celebrities of all walks, in which children were abducted or bred for human sacrifice,  pornography and prostitution. Numerous court cases, testimonies from alleged victims and criminal investigations took place due to all these conspiracy allegations. The Satanic Panic during the mid-80s became the hot topic of news reports, gossip magazines and television talk shows. The panic affected lawyers, therapists, and social workers who were dealing with all the supposed victims. Later, when the Satanic Panic seemed to be dying down, these authorities were found guilty of fabricating stories, making false accusations against the families of the people they were supposed to be helping. In many cases, therapists used hypnosis to implant false memory into patients. These false memories led some people to believe that their families were in a Satanic cult and have abused them as children. Some women were led to believe, through hypnosis, that they had been used as breeders to produce several babies to be used in Satanic ritual sacrifice, conducted by their own parents. Of course there were some people who just wanted to get their 15 minutes of fame by getting onto a talk show or news report and had fabricated sensationalized stories in order to achieve this. Needless to say, many families were destroyed and some are still in therapy today, due to the trauma they suffered from having such horrific memories implanted into their brains.

The music industry certainly did not go untouched. Several alternative music artists, especially heavy metal bands, were summoned to court and had to defend their music. Accusations that these bands were in league with the Devil, presented these musicians as cult leaders who encouraged listeners to perform blood sacrifice. They also were accused of putting subliminal messages in their music that encouraged teenagers to kill or commit suicide. The entire setup became a media circus. The evangelical Christians had a hay day with all of this, and highly encouraged the purge of Satanists and witch cults. Anyone appearing atypical to the mundane herd were outright attacked both verbally and physically. Many Satanists, witches and pagan groups laid low during this dangerous era.

The Satanic Panic Today:

Fast forward to today- Once again we Satanists need to be diligent and mindful with the words and actions we chose to use, both online and off. If we really look at it, the Satanic Panic never really went away, it just calmed down , almost went dormant, over the years. It definitely took a different route and the media put the hype on the backburner. This helped to create a false sense of security, even liberty for we Satanists, also for anyone on the outskirts such as: practitioners of witchcraft, pagans, etc. In North America as in many parts of the world, we are judged and frowned upon simply for not being one of the main 3 religious, but especially for not being Christian. In North America alone, there have been random physical attacks on Satanists and witches, very rarely has this made the headlines. People have lost their jobs or not even able to get hired simply because they are not Christian. Really think about it. If you are not out of the Devil’s broom closet and suddenly came out public as being a Satanist, would people treat you differently? Would you lose your job? Would you risk losing friends or a relationship? Would you need to fear of being attacked?

Over the past 5 years, I personally, have noticed more, and more news reports referring to crimes as being “Satanic” or Satanism associated with racists groups and murders, even if the accused have no links or indications towards it. Since the 2020 pandemic with the lockdowns and people being more at home also more online; a rise of interest in the occult and Satanism has grown. This sudden interest has also created a stir in those who oppose Satanism, the self righteous Christian groups as well as other individuals who simply feel their duty as a “good Samaritan” is to rid of anyone that they personally feel is harmful to society. These groups and individuals are a danger to individual Satanists. Some do find and stalk out witches and Satanists online, try to find out where they live, who they associate with, etc. These groups or “righteous” individuals seek to bring physical harm to the Satanist or witch they are stalking in the online shadows. Many mask as Satanists and join LHP or Satanist groups on Facebook and other social media platforms. They try to gain your trust and then befriend you on a personal level outside from the social media group or forum. This new interest bringing Satanism into the spotlight is influencing the media once again. News reporters are starting to bring up more reports accusing crimes as being done by Satanists. Recently in the short span of 1 week alone, I came across 2 news reports which made accusations of the crimes reported as being committed by Satanic cult members. We will be hearing more of such reports as the months progress, know that many u unstable minds are influenced by this.

The reawaking of the 80s Satanic Panic is happening and has been escalating rapidly. As Satanists we need to be aware of it. Satanic content creators, authors, and those who simply share about Satanism within the social media realms, all need to be mindful as to what we are sharing. We have to remember that our audience is not just our longtime supporters and personal friends. We are reaching to a much broader audience and do not know to what extent our words or what share, might affect an individual. Don’t think that because you got a low number marked as your following that a larger audience isn’t paying attention. Not all who keep up to date with your material are subscribed to your YouTube or blog and etc. We have to keep in mind that our biggest fan base is usually our enemies. They are fine combing our words. seeking out what they can use against us, what content they can report to the authorities. We don’t need to walk on eggshells but we, as Satanists, do not need to lend explicit information or the details about our personal practice to strangers either.

As authors we need to double think what we publish, we need to chose our words and subject matter wisely. Many who are attracted to Satanism and the occult, come into it from an unstable place within themselves and many do suffer from mental illnesses which go untreated. Such individuals, can take whatever we publish or say, very literally and act out upon it. So if you’re an author or put out content on YouTube and you sensationalize your material to grab the attention of a larger audience or to make yourself appear grand, know that you can be damaging certain individuals and can be held accounted for crimes they might commit against themselves and others. This is why in Satanism, it is important to hold what is meant to be secret, secret. And to also be truthful and have integrity. We need to keep our egos in check! To have a healthy ego is encouraged in Satanism however an over active ego can be harmful for all concerned. An unhealthy ego will make you forget Satan and make it all about you. Those who use sensationalism in Satan’s name to gain either monetary profit or popularity are helping to feed the fire of another damaging Satanic Panic.

*Aside from being diligent of what you share in content, you as a Satanist, must also be very careful who you connect with in the world and especially in the online world. Don’t trust easily or be quick to share anything personal about yourself and your practice to anyone, even if they claim to be a Satanist. Be leery of profiles that don’t show a picture of the actual person and of anyone who friends you online but never, even after a long period of time, reveals their actual image or name to you. Also, be careful of anyone who wants your personal phone number or address, especially if they are keeping themselves and their information hidden.

13 For The Devil

Negative superstitions have swirled around the number 13 for centuries, maybe even longer. No one can say for sure when this notion started, nor can we pinpoint exactly where it became linked with the day Friday the 13th, but there are a few speculations. Some believe this superstition came into play due to the fact that in 1307, the Knights of Templar were executed on a Friday the 13th. But if we really go back ,it becomes more biblical.

The story of the last super for instance, the dinner table consisted of 13 guests- Jesus and his 12 disciples. One of the disciples of course being Judas! This Last Super is said to have taken place on Maundy Thursday, and Judas betrayed Jesus on the following day- which was Good Friday. We can speculate that this is how the number 13 became associated with the day Friday, coming together to create bad luck.. For those of you who know the bible, you would have also noted that ,Judas was the 13th guest at the dinner table.

Because of the seating arrangement of 13 at the table during the biblical Last Super, over the years, arose a Christian superstition, which states, that it is a bad omen, even is inviting death to the household, to have 13 guests at a table.

Going deeper back into biblical myth; Friday is the day that Eve supposedly, had Adam take a bite from the forbidden fruit of the tree of knowledge. Also, Cain is said to have murdered his brother Abel on a Friday the 13th.

With everything stated herein, it appears that Friday the 13th certainly is a very unlucky, “evil” day -For Christians! Lol! Satanists have much to honor about this day.

13 is also a number with significance to witchcraft and hence also Satanic witchcraft. Every 2 and a half years we have 13 regular full moons in the calendar year. The 13th moon is known as the Blue Moon. 13 is also the traditional number of a complete witches’ coven, before it could branch off to sub-covens, in turn, making it’s high priestess or high priest, gain the title of Witch Queen or Witch King.

More detail upon this, how number 13 is one of the Devil’s numbers and more, to be found in my upcoming book about Satanic Witchcraft. To be released this fall 2021.

First Witch Killed In Satan’s Name

Agnes Waterhouse used to be a pseudo I used online several years ago, this was also my former pen name. Not once has anyone pointed out that this is the name of the first witch killed for allegedly being in league with the Devil.

In 1566 England, Agnes Waterhouse (1503-1566) also known as Moher Waterhouse, was the first witch executed for her dealings in the magical arts and also for keeping company with Satan. Mother Waterhouse was accused with two other witches, one being her 18 year old daughter, Joan Waterhouse, the other being Elizabeth Francis. All three women were from the same village, Hatfield Peverell. Mother Waterhouse confessed to being a witch and her familiar was her cat who at times turned into a toad. The familiar’s name was Satan, in the records of her case it is spelled Sathan. The familiar was said to have originally belonged to Elizabeth Francis. Agnes was brought to trial in Chelmsford, Essex, England and she was charged for using witchcraft to cause illness to a Willian Fynne, who died a year prior to her trial, November 1, 1565. She was also charged for bringing death to her husband through means of sorcery. Strangely, her daughter, Joan Waterhouse, had been accused of the same black magick crimes but in the end, was not found guilty. Joan Waterhouse’s testimony however, did help to convict her mother along with Elizabeth Francis. Agnes Waterhouse died by hanging.

Information from the trail records:

These incomplete records of the three women’s testimonies were written by a John Philips. Due to its peculiar significance, this case was deemed to be of great importance and therefore the queen’s attorney Sir Gilbert Gerard along with the queen’s justice of the bench, John Southcote, were present. The examiner was non other than the reverend Thomas Cole and a Sir John Fortescue, the seventh Chancellor of the Exchequer (1509-1603).

Elizabeth Francis was the first to be examined. She confessed to be the possessor of the familiar named Sathan whom she claimed, had received from her grandmother, Mother Eve of Hatfield Peverell. Elizabeth claimed that at the age of twelve is when her grandmother taught her witchcraft. Satan was said to be a small white spotted cat, who had been in Elizabeth Francis’s care for about 16 years before she gave him over to Agnes Waterhouse. According to Elizabeth’s statement. her familiar would do anything for her in exchange for a drop of her blood. It would speak to her in a hollowed voice and instructed her in the way of plants and other natural magicks. She admitted to stealing sheep and also to killing of a wealthy man named Andrew Byles, who refused to marry her after getting her pregnant. Her cat familiar “Sathan” helped her to rid of the unwanted pregnancy by instructing her on which herbs to drink so to terminate it. Elizabeth also admitted that in later years she did marry but became unhappy with the marriage so instructed the cat to kill her 6 month old child and make her husband lame and so it was done. Elizabeth Francis’s confessions made her the first to be accused but she called out Agnes Waterhouse on worst crimes making her own sentence lighter. This did not save Elizabeth Francis though, and in the end, 13 years after the hanging of Agnes Waterhouse, Elizabeth met her fate and also was hanged. What is extremely surprising is that several years later in 1579, a pamphlet was found, stating that Elizabeth and Agnes Waterhouse were sisters.

An exchange for cake, was the reason Elizabeth Francis gave when asked why she had given her cat familiar to Agnes Waterhouse. She reported that it was she who taught Agnes how to use witchcraft and work with the cat. It was the same witchcraft instructed to her by her grandmother Mother Eve. She told Agnes that she must call the cat Sathan and give an offering of a drop of her own blood with some milk to him, in exchange for doing her bidding or whenever he demanded it.

Agnes Waterhouse testified that she tested the cat by having it kill one of her own pigs, when she seen what the cat could do she instructed it to kill the cattle and geese of her neighbors whom she did not like. She claimed to have kept it in a pot lined with wool until one day she wanted to repurpose the wool so removed the cat from the pot and it turned itself into a toad. Agnes denied responsibility for any killing by witchcraft and placed all the blame upon her familiar.

Joan Waterhouse, daughter of Agnes Waterhouse, in her confession, stated that once while her mother was away, that she convinced the cat to take revenge upon a neighbor’s child for refusing her some bread and cheese. In its hollowed voice the cat agreed but only if she would surrender her soul to it, and she did. It is recorded that the cat turned into a dog with horns and haunted the girl. Because Joan admitted that she only used the service of the cat that one time with no deaths involved, this helped to not only condemn the other two women but also to free her.

The twelve year old, neighbor child in question, Agnes Brown was brought in for questioning, to prove or disprove Joan’s story. Her confession was the chef evidence held against Agnes Waterhouse. In her testimony, Agnes Brown described the demon that haunted her as being a black dog with horns and a face like an ape. She said it had a short tail with a chain around it’s neck that had a silver whistle hanging from it. She claimed that the demon dog would return time and again making demands from her but she would refuse. The last time it came to her it had a knife and threatened to kill her by thrusting the knife into her heart. What sealed Agnes Waterhouse’s fate was when the girl stated that she asked the dog who it’s dame was (it’s mistress) and he happily turned it’s head towards the house of Agnes Waterhouse.

Agnes Waterhouse was executed by hanging on July 29th, 1566. It is recorded that on the day of her execution that she begged God’s forgiveness which stirred up the question of her church habits. Agnes claimed to have prayed often by only in Latin because the cat forbid her to pray in English.

*This tidbit of history, brought about the first confessions of witchcraft by those being accused which then followed the first executions. in the name of witchcraft and the Devil This was the very first time anything of Satan and demons had been mentioned by those accused of cohorting with them.

What makes this case highly interesting is the fact that the women involved gave their testimonies willingly. not shy in admitting to their witchcraft. They seemed to be rather proud of it being a tradition handed down by their grandmother or grandmother figure. Agnes Waterhouse only denied responsibility for murder and placed all blame upon her trusted familiar. The cat, believed to be a demon, had been recorded within the records of this trail, to have sadly been put to death.

Overview:

There is much secrecy found within this historical story. Much to read between the lines. For some quick examples: Cats, toads and black dogs all have a long history in English folklore and each of these animals link to witchcraft and Satan. The cat named Sathan, is said to be a demon, he has a hollow (hoarse) voice and is associated with shapeshifting at will into a toad. The demon Ba’el holds these properties and according to some demonic hierarchies., he is said to reign first under Lucifer/Satan. It could very well be that this cat familiar is the demon Ba’el or one of the lower level demons from the legions he rules over. Ba’el is often associated with being the demon familiar or patron demon of witches, according to some traditional witchcraft denominations. Another bit of interesting information to ponder over, is the fact that the knowledge of working witchcraft and making use of a familiar, is handed down by the grandmother, Mother Eve. You have to question, if Mother Eve really was a blood relative to the sisters, who handed down this information to one of her grandchildren who then passed it on to the other sister. But then why did Agnes Waterhouse not know of this grandmother witch and her demonic familiar before her sister Elizabeth taught her the ways of the craft? It could very well be that Mother Eve was a high priestess of some sort who Elizabeth was an apprentice of. Or was Elizabeth part of what now-a-days would be termed as being a witch coven? Either way there is much to ponder here, a lot found within these confessions go deeper than something which would have been blurted out under torture. In fact there was not much torture if any during this case. There is much which we can associate herein with witchcraft, the demons and Satan from a historical perspective.

14th-Century Satanic Witch

14th-Century Satanic Witch

Dame Alice Kyteler, a lady of wealth with a high social standing in Kilkenny Ireland. Her name became known in the year of 1324, during the first large witch trial to take place in Ireland. This accused witch had been married four times and had inherited 3 of her former husbands’ estates. Her 4th and still living husband at the time of her trail, Sir John le Poer, is the one who turned her in, with the help of her maid-servant who had informed him that his wife was slowly poisoning him. Sir John forcibly took possession of his wife’s keys and opened the boxes and chests that were in her room. From what he had found was enough to convince him that yes , his wife was indeed a witch under Satan. He then sent the contents he had found to the Bishop of Ossory, as evidence of poisoning and witchcraft. When this came into the spotlight, Dame Alice’s stepchildren by her previous marriages joined in the accusations against her. They claimed that she used witchcraft to kill their fathers so to gain their wealth.

Surprisingly, many of the Irish nobles supported Dame Alice and opposed the Bishop. From the recorded accounts, given by Holinshed in his Chronicle of Ireland (London,1587), states that: The Lady Alice Kettle, whom the Bishop asscited , to purge herself of the fame of enchantment and witchcraft imposed unto her and to one Petronil and one Basil, her complices. She was charged to have nightly conference with a spirit called Robert Artisson, (this name also happens to be the pen name of a present day traditional witchcraft author) to whom she sacrificed nine red cocks and nine peacocks’ eyes. Also that she swept the streets of Kilkenny between compline and twilight, raking all the filth towards the doors of her son William Outlawe, murmuring secretly with herself: “To the house of William my son, Hie all the wealth of Kilennie town“.

At the first conviction they abjured and did penance, but shortly after they were found in relapse, and Alice’s companion in witchcraft, Petronill, was burnt at Kilkenny. Oddly there is no account of what happened to her other accused companion, Basil. During the hour of her death, Alice accused her son William, as being privy to the sorceries of her and her companions. After some torture, William was imprisoned for a period of three months, in which during that time the Bishop had ordered that Dame Alice’s , now former belongings, be searched. During this search a wafer of sacramental bread was found with the Devil’s name stamped upon it in place of that of the Christ. A pipe of ointment and a greased staff were also found. During her confessions ,Alice had mentioned about such items, stating that the greased staff was used for her encounters with the Devil, also to ride upon the astral and join in to the Witches’ nocturnal Sabbat rites.

This business, about these witches, troubled all of Ireland. Troubling even more was that Lady or Dame Alice was supported by the majority of the nobles, and lastly conveyed over into England, since which time it could never be understood what really became of her.

The account above, lends us some insight into the type of magical working Dame Alice and her coven engaged in. The sweeping of the streets to her son’s door is a good example of sympathetic magick ( low magick). Compline was the last religious service of the day and to conduct magick or ritual on any Christian religious holiday or “sacred” day or time, is a practice held by many Satanists from past and up until this day. It’s considered a blasphemous rite or thing to do. It also is relevant to note, that back then and even some old fashioned types today who hold true to superstition, believe it to be so know, that using a broom after dark was considered to be an action to call upon the Devil. The staff and ointment which were among Alice’s belongings are typical within the history of witchcraft lore and myth. The staff could have been either a Stang or a broom handle and the ointment would be the famous witches’ flying ointment which would have contained psychoactive plant materials. According to folklore, witches would rub this ointment on their genitals or in some cases on broom handles and insert it into them in a sexual manner. This is where the stories of sex with the Devil and flying on brooms come into play. The effects of the psychoactive plants in the ointment would aide the witch to enter into trance and between the realms to the Sabbat. The account about the sacrifice of nine red cocks and nine peacocks eyes is not to be taken literally, it actually refers to nine tail feathers of each. Note that especially with peacocks that their tail feathers bear impressionable eye like markings. Beautiful as they might be, peacock feathers are feared by many who hold to the superstition that they bring bad luck when kept in the home. When searching further to the root of this superstition, it is believed so because the peacock is considered to hold sinister properties and is associated with the Devil/Satan. Peacocks like Lucifer hold pride. In Italy, peacock feathers are called “la penna malgina” , and are associated with witchcraft and the Evil Eye. In the Near East, the obscure sect of the Yezidis, have been accused of worshipping the Devil under the form of Melek Taus, the Peacock Angel. Many Theist Satanists follow the mythological story of Melek Taus and this is one of the names still used today for the Devil/Satan or is highly associated with Satan’s aspect of Lucifer. The spirit mentioned to have visited Dame Alice nightly, Robert Artisson, is actually another name for the Devil or sometimes translated to be “The Son of the Devil” which in this case would make him to be Cain/Qayn/Qyain On a side note: Robert shortened in Rob and the name Robin (sometimes Robin of the Arts), is another title for the Devil/Satan.
