Snakes vs. rats (again!)

We get questions and concerns from (well-meaning) followers of our blog about certain Instagram accounts, public “internet magicians” and their supposed ”connections” to the 218/182/2182 Current and Tradition. This has triggered some thoughts about the necessity of discussing here some very fundamental topics and sharing our own perspectives on them.

Modern worldviews and Traditional approaches

The belief in spiritual realities and magic has been a natural part of most civilizations during the course of history. This has also been the case in the western part of the world not too long ago, and we only need to go back in time a few centuries to find among the majority an accepted belief in spiritual realms, whether it be the belief in the so-called chain of being (i.e the ordered universe descending from the primum mobile towards the animal kingdom via angelic spheres and the influences of the fixed stars and planets, a worldview upheld among traditional astrologers for example) or the belief in the existence of what is nowadays called folkloric entities (Näcken, the Grave Grim, Faery folk, elves, trolls and so on) was something common also in western cultures one or two centuries ago, independent of whether a person was actually practicing magic or not. Belief might not even be a strong enough word – people interpreted their everyday lives from a perspective where these forces were always involved.

These are just two examples among many of course, but the point is that as a result of secularization, these beliefs and practices are much less common and have to a large extent obviously become labeled as superstition by the modern atheistic majority. The spiritual realms are no longer accepted as a natural part of everyday life among westeners. This development push back the ”starting point” of any would-be magician today, as if you grow up in a context in which the unseen forces are generally regarded as non-existent (or at best being ”parts of the mind”…), it goes without saying that one of your first challenges will be to accept their actual existence and confront their influences, but most people give up even before arriving at that fundamental stage, and choose to focus on the surface of things instead of reaching for their essences beyond. This is the path chosen by the ”internet magicians”, which is especially clear when it comes to ”magic” on social media platforms, as almost everything you see there will lead you in the wrong direction, away from real spiritual insight, and thus serving as nothing but distraction from things of real importance by stealing valuable time, energy and focus.

Social media is commonly used by people to boost their ego, while spirit work on the other hand should eliminate the same.

By conducting real sorcerous work, whether it be divination, healing, cursing or other types of magic, and then contemplating the experienced results, all unwanted doubts inherited from atheist surroundings will in time become eliminated, and there will sooner or later come a point at which you will start viewing mundane happenings from a perspective where the preceding influences in spiritual realms can be noticed and confronted. 99,9 % of all you can find on social media platforms will do nothing but keeping you away from reaching this point.

When the taboos and ”occult logic” behind magical processes are understood, it is easy to see that such practices are not harmonizing very well with certain kinds of social media usage. For example, one of the most common things to use as a link to a target that one wants to affect through magic is a photo of the person (this is actually one of the few areas where the internet is of great help for spirit work). This basic point says everything about certain individuals who are obsessed with posting photos of themselves, while in parallell claiming to be practicing magicians. For if you actually believe in the effects of magic, why would you leave such open route for unwanted influences to take seat on your person? And if you don’t believe in these effects, how have you managed to become such an experienced magician that you think you are well suited to teach others (and in some cases even be able to do sorcerous work on their behalf)? Some might claim that they believe themselves to have magical protection and thus have nothing to fear, but in our (Current-)specific case we could also ask: what is the point of such behaviour from a spiritual point of view, while you at the same time claim to seek union with Spirit and not with man?

Another factor that signals charlatanry is the misuse of esoteric sigils. The nature of all Current-specific sigils and the taboos connected to them are explained in the official publications, meaning Liber Falxifer I-III and The Book of Sitra Achra. If such sigils are used for the wrong purposes, for example for mere ”show off”, then the person responsible for such approaches simply shows that he or she has no connection to the Essence of the sigil/s on any relevant (=spiritual) level, at least not to what we consider to be the Blessings attainable through related ritual work.

Let Qayin sort them out

Consider thus any and all people pretending to be connected to the Anti-Cosmic/Chaos-Gnostic Current and the Necrosophic Qayinite Tradition, while clearly acting in ways opposed to its established ethos, as either being total idiots and charlatans, or actual rats (which has been the case a couple of times).

When encountering such people, you should be aware that archonic influences take many forms and in the end you will probably loose more than you could ever hope to gain when engaging in contact or debate with them. In these cases you should strive for Becoming better and more. Don’t be a part of the problem and become instead part of its actual solution. Place yourself in a position to “Do Good”, instead of merely talking, writing and crying about that which is bad.

The guidance given in the official publications of the Temple are meant to put you in direct contact with the Current and its Warding and Guiding Spirits and that should be enough, if you are meant for the Path. 

We dealt with similar topics in the post Tradition and Ethos a couple of years ago. We recommend to read that one again and take to heart the message.

As stated many times before, the sole intent of our own online presence is to serve as a contrasting opposition to all the charlatans and ”internet magicians”, and those who are clever enough can figure out that we do so with the blessings of those whose efforts we strive to honor and defend. 

The only way we can do this is by keeping in touch with those who are seriously interested in the Work and ”ignore” everyone else, as experience has shown that these kinds of scum disappear soon enough anyway, once they are deprived of the attention that they crave.

This does not mean that their deeds are unnoticed or will go unpunished. The rat traps are set for those that actually manage to cause offense, and will break their necks once they go too far and when they least expect it, as it has done many times before.

The Qliphothic Zodiac – Part three

A prayer to Adimiron

The following prayer has been used in Qliphothic Zodiac workings during the dominion of Adimiron, the Qliphoth of Taurus. 

To write these types of prayers based on personal Gnosis, directed towards each Legion of the Zodiac Princes, is a good way to focus the results of studies and meditative/contemplative work for each Zodiac sign and its Qliphothic counter-part, and a recommended addition to the Work for all practitioners who focus on these forces on a regular basis. 

In the name of Azerate I call upon the Bull-headed Dragons of the Qliphothic Zodiac, Adimiron the Bloody Ones!

Hear my Will o Mighty Princes of the Other Side, and bless me by gathering your Legions in my presence on this night of your strong influence and dominion!

I N.N., who have entered the Covenant of the Eleven Heads seek now to further enlink my Self to Sitra Achra through your Grace, so that your power may become reflected through me within and without, for the greater Good of our Holy Cause!

By the blood spilt and the life-force sacrificed, may the sympathetic elements constituting your ladder of ascent and descent be quickened, so that your sorcerous might can empower my Work and so add to the weakening of the demiurgic forces within and without, for the Glory of the Unknown God beyond and before all!

Mighty Adimiron, let me become your weapon now that you clash with your mirrored opposite whose archonic ruling strives to uphold the Tree of Lies, and may the nails that bind Spirit to matter so become further loosened, so that I by the Vav of Sitra Achra may conquer new thrones in your Holy Name and rise up against the enslaving forces governing the web of destiny meant to crucify me through the shortcomings in my personal horoscope!

By the power of the Great Intercessor and Pact-Maker Qayin Baal Berith I, who am of His Fiery Lineage call unto you Adimiron ha-Azerate, and ask you to identify my Will that is the spark of Spirit that ignites as the Black Flame, and bless me with your empowerments to bring illumination where possible and eradication to everything else, all in accordance with the Thoughtless Cause of Azerate el Acher, to which I have sworn my whole existence and beyond through the unbreakable Treaties and Covenants entered into in the presence of the Overseeing Wardens of our Current!

In the name of and for the cause of Azerate, come to me Mighty Adimiron and grant me a fraction of your boundless power so that I with your blessings may take further steps on the Path towards Liberation, and I shall let all my victories to come add to your endless Glory that forever shall dispel the influences of the blind and enslaved archons of this cursed creation, and by my own Becoming and Inner Alchemy I swear to forever act as a Liminal Point of Intrusion for all forces linked to your Essence to further aid in the Holy Cause that shall continue until nothing is and All is Nothing in the Unbound Fullness of Pleromatic Emptiness!

Karatnu Berith et-Maveth, V’im-Azerate Asinu Chozeh!

The Qliphothic Zodiac – Part One

This post is the first in a series dedicated to workings and contemplations on the Zodiac Princes of Sitra Achra, published here with the purpose to shed light on these forces and their role in the Great Work as seen from the perspective of students of the 218 Current.

This first part deals mostly with contemplations and the theoretical side of things while later parts will focus more on practical aspects.

Background and structuring of the practical work

My personal work with the Zodiac Princes of Sitra Achra started out during the time of Adimiron’s dominion which is equal to the Qliphoth of Taurus. This was done in the ”common fashion” of base and place work, employing the relevant elements as stated in the Book of Sitra Achra to establish the elemental ladder of ascent and descent. An initial pact was sealed in which I stated that I seek to enlink myself further to the Sitra Achra through Adimiron and asked for Spiritual guidance and inspiration upon the initiatoric Path.

One of the most immediate realizations, or insights received in Spirit, was that traditional astrology needed to be studied and understood thoroughly in order to be able to properly contemplate the nature of, and thus fully becoming more able to commune and work with the counteracting forces of the Other Side’s Zodiac.

When viewed from that perspective I understood that in order to deliberately work against (or manipulate towards my own ends) the cosmic currents of the Sephirothic Zodiac, the work can not be limited to the Qliphothic legions of ”only” one zodiacal sign, for example the ones who were in dominion at one’s time of birth, but instead all of them needs to be considered just like in an astrological chart, which is of course far from limited to the sign in which the Sun is placed at a specific point in time.

This in turn led to a new structuring of the work in which I placed focus upon the Qliphoth of each zodiac sign during their respective time of dominion, conducting specific workings connected to each Legion and establishing pacts with all of them, in a similar way as to how the work with the 11 + 1 Azerate pacts are done as per the descriptions given in The Book of Sitra Achra. The individual workings are planned in a way so that they are done during specifically auspicious times during each zodiacal period, through the study and employment of the art of electional astrology.

The virtues of Traditional Astrology

From my perspective, the nature and influence of the astrological forces imposed upon us can be met in two ways: one is to shield ourselves against their influences and the other is to manipulate the said influences in ways fitting for our own work and for our own ends.

From this perspective we understand and interpret the influences of the planets, but we are not obsessed about them in the same manner as many others are, so for us there is no need to shed tears because of a Mercury retrograde, for example (which is common among internet ”magickians”). A planet in retrograde motion can, depending on context and perspective, aid in our work as the weakened expression of a planet’s dignified attributes does not mean that it’s counter-acting Qliphothic emanations are weakened, and in some cases, for example when it comes to egressive forms of communion work, such planetary states can become understood as auspicious from our perspective as the forces naturally in place to put hindrance to such transcendental work are weakened. This goes not only for retrograde motion, but also for other debilitating factors affecting a planet’s expression.

In other words the workings of the Qliphothic Zodiac are not limited to the sephirothic chart, but the latter is observed in order to enhance and structure one’s work in different ways.

(It should also further be underlined that retrograde motion in itself does not make up the whole picture of the status of a planet, and again other astrological factors must be taken into account, studied and contemplated in order to understand and foresee their effects.)

However, even though the Qliphothic forces aren’t weakened because of the debilitation of a planet, the states of the planets still of course have effects in our lives as they are some of the very emanations and upholders of cosmic destiny, archonic forces proper.

Thus, by studying the art of traditional astrology we can foresee specific events and dangers to look out for, and through sorcerous means we may then be able to protect ourselves from the said influences. The same goes for the other way around – if Mars is in a dignified state it can make the effects of martial workings stronger, for even if the source we call upon for such work is an Outer one in Essence beyond cosmic limitations, the manifestations on this side of the Tehiru are still dependent on astrological factors and might increase or decrease accordingly.

One can reach far by choosing the fitting planetary day and hour for a specific work and it is always better to do something compared to doing nothing, but if one studies astrology deeper there are many other factors that one could make use of.

Examining the birth chart in order to overcome and Become

The similar perspective can be assumed when studying one’s own birth chart, which in itself is important to do in order to identify and become able to overcome certain weaknesses in personality which may otherwise block one’s initiatic Becoming.

Also in this case there are two ways of working. For example, if Mercury is well placed and strong in one’s chart, and pointing towards good communication abilities within the individual, there is no point in specifically working against these abilities ”just for the hell of it”, but the better alternative is to make use of these abilities for the greater good of the Work, for example in different forms of writing and other poetic aspects that can be employed for Spiritual ends. This is one aspect of the breaking of cosmic destiny, as the ”gift” given by birth is being used for much loftier goals than it was intended for by archonic decree.

On the other hand, if for example the Ascending sign is a cardinal/moveable one and the Ascendant ruler is also placed in a cardinal sign, it could indicate an unreliable personality that might jeopardize one’s ability to uphold focus upon the work. When such negative traits are identified astrologically, one can contemplate how these specific archonic expressions can become counteracted through the relevant Qliphothic Forces.

The above should be considered as examples only, and obviously there are a lot more to delve into than these two factors.

To contemplate one’s own personality and it’s positive and negative traits is a good preparation before conducting the time consuming work of studying one’s birth chart, wherein the mentioned character traits will show themselves. To study one’s personal birth chart in a detailed manner is also crucial for understanding how the current positions of the planets affect the life of an individual, through the study of the transits/aspects created by the current planetary positions in comparison to one’s birth chart.

Even though it goes without saying it should here be underlined that 99 % of all ”astrologers” active on the internet should be avoided and the best alternative is of course to study the traditional sources available, especially when it comes to the interpretation of charts as the online ”calculators” seldom takes all important aspects into account.

The correct interpretation of birth charts may of course also be helpful when it comes to spell work against others, and while a photo or personal belonging to the target can help create the occult link to him or her, the knowledge of the person’s date and time of birth could further add to the magical results of the work, as one is then able to study the person’s characteristics and weaknesses in a more detailed way through the erecting of a correct chart, and thus also by experience learn how, and above all when, the person in question is best afflicted.

The arts of the Fallen Watchers and the First Blacksmith

Furthermore, the connections between astrology and the Fallen Watchers is of course also of relevance and in the Book of Enoch it is stated that Sariel (”prince of God”) taught men the courses of the moon and that Baraqiel (”lightning of God”) taught astrology.

In my own case this is very relevant, as within my own personal work during the last years I have placed a lot of focus upon workings related to the Hamadryadic Armour sigil, which led me towards certain insights about its connections to the realms and virtues of Tubal Qayin/Azazel, which in turn further led to specific Tubal-Qayin Azazel work proper, and the fact that I later felt the urge and inspiration to start working with the Qliphothic Zodiac and traditional astrology studies I relate to inspiration in Spirit which ”naturally” followed the workings from the Hamadryadic Armour sigil via Azazel and pointing me in this specific direction, thus showing and underlining to me the connections between the Black in Green, the Fallen Watchers and the Sitra Achra.

As a sidenote an interesting finding from the University of Michigan can be mentioned, which is a clay bowl from the 6th or 7 th century AD bearing this inscription which showing how the names of these two Watchers have been used in magical practice:

”… and I wrote all of the curses upon a new bowl of clay and I sent back the curses of those who cursed Negray daughter of Denday to their masters until they release and bless in the name of Sariel the angel and Barakiel the angel and in the name of Sariel and Barakiel you release from the curses of those who curse Negray daughter of Denday as a man is freed from the house of bondage and from the house of weapons.”

Another aspect for contemplation is the connection between astrology and the arts of Tubal Qayin. Tubal Qayin is the First Blacksmith and ”an instructor of every craftsman in bronze and iron” as well as ”very expert and famous in martial performances, … and first of all invented the art of working brass.” (Antiquities of the Jews).

The metalwork associations given to Tubal Qayin are many and his art connects naturally to that of traditional astrology, of course through the alchemical connections between the seven planets and the metals.

By combining these aspects of wisdom and art we are able to make use of the currents in motion in the heavens ”above” (by astrological studies and interpretation) in our work ”below” by knowing the correct planetary attributes of the metals to be employed and how to employ them, which further shows how the ”fall” of the Watchers grants us sorcerous elevation and addition to the insights taught by Qayin and Q****** about for example the attributes of the elements and spirits of the green kingdom.

Furthermore, in addition to the forging of physical and spiritual weapons and shields, the work of the First Blacksmith can be seen as a metaphor for the shaping of, and dominance over, one’s own destiny, which in turn is similar to what studies and experience in traditional astrology could lead towards. On that same topic, this post ends here with a quote from the legendary manuscript of astrological magic known as The Picatrix:

”By sages, magical images are called talismans, which may be translated ”violators”, because whoever makes an image does so by violence, and makes it by conquering the substance of which it is made.”
