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. Let’s try our best to avoid harm and accusations against us, also let’s do our best not to repeat the 1980s attack on Satanism.

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.
