Saturnalia was a festival in which the Romans commemorated the dedication of the temple of the god Saturn. As winter approached, they were losing harvest & were in need of the sun in order for their harvest to grow & bear fruit. Saturn was the Roman god of agriculture and harvest.
This meant that the god Saturn was in need of the sun god in order to complete his job, therefore the attention was then shifted to the sun god. The Saturnalia custom is rooted in pagan & Celtic believes & traditions. They believed in human sacrifice including the sacrifice of small children & infants in which were offered to their gods in order to empower the sun to return with strength. They believed that winter was due to the sun losing its power due to a battle between the sun god & the god of the dead. Since winter is annually, they believed these battles were fought annually and thus the sacrifices had to be annually in order to appease or empower their respective gods. Because the sun always return at the beginning of the new year, they believed that its was due to all of their human sacrifices, and costum rituals that took effect; empowering their sun god to return each year victoriously.
December 17-25 as Saturnalia.
Symbols Rule the World
Remember the saying of the Chinese sage Lao-Tzu, who said that “symbols rule the world, not rules or laws”?
Symbols communicate at a deeper level than words, because they are decoded by the right, intuitive brain, whereas words are decoded by the left, logical brain
Symbols are able to penetrate more deeply into our subconscious
Words attempt to rule the world, but they can never be as powerful as symbols.
The Foundation of the the Satanic religion, its basic doctrine from the middle ages down to the present was that Satan would one day rule the world. “The triumph of Satan will only be accomplished when the dualist dilemma is obviated and when one single fore, Satan, rules supreme….This vision and ambition eventually became the fundamental Satanic influence in medieval Europe and laid the ground for the full-fledged Satanic religion known as withcraft.”
In varying traditions there is an understanding of the abyss (mainly occult traditions), and of the importance of crossing the abyss to make it out of a spiritual initiation relatively intact and alive. The mere act of crossing such an abyss allows for a time of deep introspection, existential crisis, despair, and a host of other emotions and experiences that are difficult to process. Once gotten to the other side of said abyss, we will have let go of considerable emotional material, past traumas, and belief systems, and will have received spiritual gifts, insights, or abilities as a result of the experience.
In the Luciferian tradition, the biblical serpent is regarded as the personification of knowledge, wisdom and enlightenment who liberated the first humans from the spiritual ignorance imposed on them by Yahweh. The Serpent is seen as the symbol of an outside liberating force tha quite literally opened the eyes of Adam and Eve to the reality of the created Universe and the wonders of the material world.
The Snake, Serpent or dragon is an ancient mythical and archetypal image of the solar phallic power or life force that is associated with Lucifer and the explosion of Light following the celestial event that created the Universe(Known by modern scientists as the Big Bang)
When the first man and woman ate the forbidden fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil in the Astral or Heavenly garden,they became consciously aware.
Their first realization was that their physical “cloaks of flesh” were naked. They rushed to cover their genitals as they had become aware of the so-called “Serpent Power.” of Kundalini that can raised by sexual intercourse and non-reproductive sex act. They also ate from the Tree of Life which initiated the cycle of birth,life,death and rebirth and of human souls incarnating in physical form.
Some people “lock” the powers of their mirrors to their use
alone by charging it with a secret, magick word. You can do this while cleansing
and consecrating your magick mirror by placing your finger on the mirror’s
center and saying your magick word three times. Between speaking each word,
remove your finger from the mirror and breathe through the spot.
Allow your psychic energy to mingle with the mirror’s.
To use your magick mirror, place a votive candle behind the mirror (the
mirror will obstruct your view of it) or light two candles on either side
of the mirror. (Personal preference). Hold your hands over the black surface
and whisper your magick word three times. Gaze into the mirror’s blackness
– not on it, but through it. Again, relax your mind and use the usual scrying
techniques we’ve already learned.
Another mirror method is to sit under the full moon with your mirror.
Catch the moon’s reflection in the black mirror and begin scrying into this
“People create gods in their own image according to their own desires
and needs. Gods tend to agree precisely with the beliefs of their
believers, care about the same things as those who believe in them, even
to speak to them personally, to be a friend to the lonely. They fulfill
the needs of some people so neatly because it is those people who
themselves create the personalities and wishes of the God they profess.
It is Human imagination at work, tied in with the ego, and with the
subconscious. Gods are our creations. Within organized religion,
people’s opinion on their “god” is always individual and subjective even
though they as a group call their God by the same name. Depending on a
person’s will and need they search out gods that closely match what they
Satanism abhors these gods in their multitudes. Satan is the
anti-god… destroying all these invented external sources of power. In
the name of Satan, there is only one true power that exists above Gods:
Human minds. For it is only Human Beings that have made gods, and it is
in our image that they are made. We create gods: We give them Human
emotions, human desires, and even give them hands, faces, bodies,
clothes and weapons. Why is all this so? We are dishonest. We create
gods in this manner because we dare not admit the truth: We Are Gods.
Religion and worship must be honest. If you are going to put your
heart, desires and motivations behind an object of devotion, there is no
point lying to yourself about the nature of your psychological
projections. The source of this objectification of your ideas about
reality is your own mind. The abstract nature of god, however
convoluted, is your own creation. That’s why all the gods of history
have had human emotions, cared for humans in particular, put the Earth
at the center of their schemes, cared about what us human wear, think,
do and feel. Gods have even looked like us. Let us discard such wishful
thinking and admit that we’re making it all up. In Satanism, we do not
worship others or ideas. We worship ourselves, as we are the source of
all the great things we adore. Self-worship is the most honest form of
“It is the individuals’ choice to live their lives in mental bondage
or with the freedom to think. The ability to make decisions based upon
your own set of personal values is so very hard for the masses to
understand. It is far easier to follow the moral molasses of mass
thought then to step away from it and follow your own path and think for
Many people claim to be born Satanist yet few actually realize what
that means. It means always knowing whom you are, where you come from,
and the willingness to do whatever it takes to survive another day. It
is the innate force of Will inside you that powers you to strive and
achieve more and be the best that you can be physically, mentally and
When people claim to have liberated themselves from the mass
delusions of the common mans’ thoughts and morals you have to look at it
in many ways. Is it for them an escape route that allows them their
personal vices? Is it a way to strike back at authority figures with no
real substance behind what they think Satanism means? Or is it a
realization and recognition of their own personal values and beliefs
that were always there.
Satanism is not just all about being able to do whatever you want.
It’s about taking advantage of everything that comes your way and
running with it. It’s about making your own life easier and living by
your own personal choices, values and ideals. It’s about being able to
do all that you want and recognize the personal responsibility that
comes along with your actions.
Suffering, whining, and complaining are useless weaknesses. You have
the ability to change things if you truly desire to. Your inner force of
Will should be strong enough to do this. If you are unhappy with
something, change it. If you like suffering and complaining go to
confession at your nearby Xitian church. I am sure they can certainly
listen to your problem and direct you to your knees.
As an individual, you can have the desire and means to do anything.
As a Satanist it is the internal Force of Will to succeed that counts
most. It is this strong internal personal Force of Will that Will
Liberate those that have it from the mass conformity of everyone
belonging to the herd. The hardest thing is deciding where you belong.
All Satanists walk a long, lonely path, apart from the herd. Can you or
are you truly ready to walk the Dark Path, or are you too comfortable in
your blissful ignorance?”
