With the proverbial boat missed as far as June is concerned, thankfully I finally managed to finish the small but difficult write up of the snake familiar ritual. For the last two months, numerous versions of this rite have been carried out, with gnosis delivered directly by Hecate and  my primary familiar.

The familiar that came to me through this ritual was bizarrely, as insinuated, my primary familiar. Through this work he was revealed to have an ancient serpentine origin that up to this point had been unknown to myself. This familiar has proven himself to be a master of shape changing, able to morph himself into a shape not too dissimilar to a lunar moth, which meant initial access to the serpentine currents was not in anyway assumed. He has been a great companion so far in the work, but is still somewhat mysterious to me despite the possession work and dream visitation! Even after such a long time of having contact with him in some form or another.

The work at the Covenant of Hecate retreat, whilst not my initial encounter with the Ophidian current, resulted in increased levels of direct contact with it. It is my belief that this for me was in no way coincidental – healing at the moment is an important focus on my journey on the Ivory Stellar Path. It has become necessary to balance and heal both myself, and others around me within my life as Hecate directs me to these works of light.  Not just Hecate it has to be said although she has been the primary instigator – Lucifer sacrificed his solstice night to direct me in the healing of someone very important to me which was an incredibly beautiful if heavy experience that unfortunately is bound by an oath of silence. I can say I feel in his debt – with this work completed, I feel another specifc and unexpected gate was unlocked and granted by both Hecate and Him.

I can feel the acceleration to working with his Stellar Pillar Gate on this path now – a step towards the completion of this stage and onwards to the Earthing works. This plus further works of healing are the immediate future and focus for myself.

Not all of this is via serpent current as mentioned, but it plays a vital part alongside work with the Gods themselves. I have also began, to see at times, echos of The Atlantean Devil Queen within my work. What part she has to play, and how I can approach the connection I have with her, is something that still remains another mystery to explore.

The detailed write up of how to work directly with one of the serpent familiars, is detailed in the linked PDF. This has been carried out within a group, and was very successful in bringing through the Ophidian current. Working with Hecate is ideal for this, but it has been successfully carried out with success with different calls involving Belial. Intuition suggests that it would be suitable for work with other gods linked to the Ophidian Current with adaptation, as many share the gifts to manipulate it. It is likely that a differing ‘flavour’ of the current will be delivered depending on the route into it – Hecate and Lucifers serpent familiars are likely to be more stellar in nature than the primal ones sent by Belial and the Great Serpent God, but this isn’t set in stone. Reality is more complicated than neat boxes. As mentioned in the document, I leave this up to expansion by the reader whilst recommending it is first accessed via Hecate as it was her who unlocks these gates. I stress that caution must be used here to a degree – the ritual is simple to perform, what is brought through is anything but and is very strong if accessed correctly. I truly feel this is a cure than could become a curse if abused.

The Familial Snakes of Divine Healing

I hope many people can put this to good use, not just for themselves but others! I have been astounded its effects on others around me, many of them having little exposure to this current. Longstanding physical, emotional and spiritual issues have been vastly improved in such little time. Again, it demonstrates the power of the eternal Witch Gods.

Ave Hecate Zonodrakontos!

Working with Hecates Gate and Healing Stellar Current

Posted in Paganism, The Path of Flames with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 19, 2017 by Sypheara

Just a small post this time to update with on going work on the path. Work continues with Hecates gate, which is mainly in stabilising the currents that have been opened this far and allowing for the approach to Lucifers part on the stellar journey.

During work with Hecates gate alot of interesting gnosis has come forth. The main pieces of Gnosis being the clarification on the entity that guards the way to the Ivory Spiders dwelling place, at the Star Pool of Belial. This almost angelic, knightly figure is interestingly arthurian like, which has been very surprising to me.

In addition, further gnosis has been given regarding an entity made up of a combination of Lucifer and Belials energies. Further gnosis on the identity of the soul form to be assumed with the culmination of the opening of all the stated gates has also been given. All of this needs fleshing out, and detailing in my own personal notes.

This is a notably laborious process, with me having to update both my own working diaries, as well as the electronic copy im putting together for both safety in case the originals are lost or worse, damaged and destroy, and when the path is successfully walked and completed to hopefully distribute if they allow.

More work has to be carried out not just with Hecates gate as well, but the Ivory Spiders in regard to understanding more of what is coming forth. Alot is still unclear, and this gnosis is not understood well via speculative interpretation but only in possession and intuition.

Hecate has given information on something i can only describe as the God Stones for which she wants as sacrifice.. the original of these were collected from near her Temple of the Four Pillars of Fire from the ocean. One was given to someone for healing trauma.. the other on request of her which opened up powerful currents of Belial for that individual.

My own stone had little effect for myself until now, and she is now revealing as to why that is and how it will play a small part in the completion of her stage of this work.

In one particular rite, that could be useful to others and in no way requires the use of her open active gate to gain some, if not full benefit, is a particularly useful bit of possession work. Anyone who has embodied both a primary and secondary familiar, or has familiars in general, would be able to use the quick outline as follows as a powerful, healing ritual. Note it is not given in full: in future I may digitise fully the original rite, removing the path specific elements that are not ready to be revealed as of yet.

Firstly, in the East, a fetish of Hecate is placed that has already been cleansed with water and incense in the usual manner, and activated in your blood. This can be a picture of her, a statue of some kind, or maybe a black board with her sigil painted with gold on the front. As long as its unique to her, it is a appropriate focal point. A black mirror could also be consecrated for this purpose of direct communication with her. This is flanked by two candles, and then any spirit houses of each familiar, ideally the doll bodies.

20170203_225608A beautiful rendition of Hecate on metal, acquired from Primal Craft as a working tool before activation in blood. This picture does not do her justice.

The ritual is opened however you normally draw the circle. I start at the west as mentioned at the altar, going widdershins. The candles surrounding her small temporary space in the east can be lit as part of the circle opening or specifically when you come to work with her, it doesn’t matter as to the order of the operation here.

The circles energy is raised through successive calls of power. The planetary calls or that of the ephesian letters is fine for this. It is then opened as far as possible, and reinforced seven times. The practitioner should then open both trees of Day and Night, day first as in many of the detailed rites. As best as possible, she should be invoked to attempted godform assumption as far as the practitioners skill and Hecate herself allows.

From here, at the East, her fetish is blooded and the familiars are called one by one into the flesh, to partake of the coming union. Finally, Hecate is asked to joined you in sexual magickal communion. The resulting union between witch, god and familiars is best described as a miniature Sabbat flight as the self and the familiars are utterly bathed in her Kalas.

This is extremely healing, and needs to be experienced to be believed. This should be continued until exhaustion for full effect. After this, Hecate will likely deliver personal messages, tasks or other things she wants to relay. The familiars themselves will also likely to continue to make their presence known with potentially very physical results.

The above is best carried out at the full moon, but can be carried out on any night that isnt overly close to the New Moon, from what I understand and what I’ve worked. There is no limit to the amount of times it can be carried out.

The above came at the right time for myself, and helped to heal me both physically, mentally and spiritually from a small hole id found myself in due to the venoms released from the previous gate work. I hope it helps anyone else, at least to form ideas, of how to approach some ritual magick ways of merging with her and receiving healing.

Finally, I’ve had a luck of being able to make it to the ‘Spinner of Fate’ event being held in the UK this year by The Covenant of Hecate. I’m looking forward to this extremely, and if anyone who happens to be reading is going, I will hopefully see you there. For the rest, I hope to share what I can closer to the end of March.

Thanks again,

Ave Hecate,

Enlinking Familiars to Objects

Posted in Luciferianism, The Path of Flames with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 13, 2015 by Sypheara

Finally, I have a draft of the Enlinking Familiar rite I am happy to release. Having gone through numerous edits, I believe it is now in a state that is correctly representative. It quickly became much larger and intricately detailed that I initially intended, in order to correctly and fully detail the process involved.

This marks the completion of the two familiar rites I initially set out to perform within my own, personal workings and to document. This entry details the means by which the Primary Familiar was initially encountered in its full, manifested form, and given a physical shell so it could be interacted with to carry out powerful external workings.

In this rite the method by which this was carried out is detailed. Whilst it is specifically written to pertain to the primary familiar, it can be abstracted easily to be applied to any familiar a witch needs to enlink. Note this is not a binding process but the creation of an active gateway! Once opened, it is a link that cannot be removed or destroyed without consequences for both familiar and practitioner. Note also this is written from the perspective entirely of someone working with Hecates energies.. it is only though her energies this particular rite can be successful.

In addition, the rite mentions briefly the wand and triangle of Arte. These are both necessary tools that need to be both acquired, and utilised effectively within the rite for it to be truly effective. It could be that these small entries form themselves  the basis of a basic, working tools entry that will be later detailed, but this has yet to be fully decided.


The Veiled Stellar Eye of Hecate

This rite contains some further elucidation on the Stellar Eyes of the Gods,and the role that Hecates specifically plays within this rite. It is through her Stellar Eye the power to link familiars in this particular way is carried out, the true forms of which only she herself can reveal to the witch. It also in its own way, acts as as a multifaceted and hidden key.  It also forms a part of a hidden and secret path to deeper mysteries within her realms, and can be utilized for a specific line of Ascent for those who she bestows this gift upon.

The resources section has been updated, and the write up can be found at the following link:

My attention now turns to working on active gateways and much deeper, and occult work with the Trident Gods to properly begin the lightning path that leads across the Abyss. In addition, a working on the 21st with a local group has been scheduled to further raise and connect with the Stellar Energies, hopefully giving others a firsthand taste of this empowering current.

Ave Hecate,


Gnosis via the Eyes of the Gods

Posted in Greco-Egyptian, Occultism, Paganism, The Path of Flames, Traditional Witchcraft with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 26, 2015 by Sypheara

There are many ways in which the Gods deliver gnosis to those who have successfully forged a working relationship with them, or to those who they wish to bestow upon their gnosis. This can take the form of anything from vivid possession of the body and journeying in bilocation, to audible voices and intuitive experiences.

One common and powerful way they communicate and grant their gifts is via  the Eyes of the Gods. These manifest as gigantic eyes to our minds, usually during liminal, journeying experiences but some cases even without warning, superimposing themselves over our sight.

These manifestations are always vivid, made up of a dizzying array of colour and light. The sensation is that of a hyper real experience as the God manifests themselves in the form of their great eyes directly. This is often accompanied with an auditory sensation akin to a low or high pitched notes that oscillates endlessly. Each experience of the Eyes of the Gods is unique, depending on which God is manifesting and in which form they so choose. Common forms for these appearances as Serpentine, Mammalian and Compound eyes, but other more geoemetric arrangements can encountered and experienced.

Gazing into the eye in fascination is usually an automatic response, such is the alluring draw of these beings, ancient beyond comparison. Often when this is done, for any length of time, within the eyes the observer will become aware of a shifting pattern of lines, geometric shapes and quivering sine waves. Sometimes, these condense into a solid, powerful and radiant sigil.


The Solar Eclipse, May 2013, Liscarroll National School

The Eye Sigils, although not the Eyes themselves, contain a vast amount of power. They can be roughly split into two categories: Ingressing, and Egressing. Note before I continue that these categories are purely to make working with them easier; it is a purely human, logical construction for the purpose as acting as a quick rule in regards to the applications of any particular eye sigil. This can (and definitely should) be backed up by further work with the entity which gave the original eye sigil.

Ingressing eye sigils direct power inwards. These eyes are great to work with in offering and devotion, and reveal great gnosis through their utilisation through contemplation and/or blood work. They primarily act as maps, keys and gates to other realms.

Egressing eye sigils direct power forcibly outwards, acting as potent protective and malefic tools, and also act as powerful sigils to create active and powerful gateways for earthing the currents of the witchgods.

As mentioned above, this rule is not hard and fast. The reality is that the majority of the time, an eye sigil is a mix of these depending on the reason why it was  gifted upon its observer in the first place. However in my experiences so far,  they are usually weighted to one of these categories and  are given for one specific use. Each should certainly be approached and understood on its own basis.


The Eye of Horus, self edited

The appearances of these eyes cannot be forced, only requested, and are to be seen as fragments of the Gods themselves and respected as such. It is likely they will be encountered in invocation, if they make their presence known to the practitioner who invites them into their flesh.  They are also present when the Gods are watching us, although usually in a more distant format and is in these cases encountered primarily in the dream state. The first of these resolved eye sigils that were specifically granted to me, along with increased visions of these eyes, has been revealed as a vital part in the construction of the lower stellar body. It is through the constructed and empowerment of this body via which the Ivory Spider, along with a myriad of other Witch Gods, will allow for the full integration of the lower spheres for the crossing of the Abyss.

As contrast to the above, it can be easily demonstrated that such powerful eye sigils, and the eyes in general  in regards to magickal purposes have a precedent in many other cultures in the world. Both of the examples I use below could fill a post on their own, so I will keep it brief and the reader is encouraged to research further.

Egyptian culture has a famous example in the Eye of Horus. Horus was one of the most significant Egyptian deities, a stellar sky god of immense power. In one Egyptian myth, Horus was engaged in combat with  his uncle Set for the throne after his father, Osiris’s death. In said fight Set landed a blow which blinded Horus, entirely gouging out his left eye. This wound was later to be magically healed, in one strain of the story by the god Thoth. The lost eye of Horus, upon being recovered, was offered by Horus himself to his father Osiris in an attempt to once again resurrect him. This led to the Eye of Horus becoming linked strongly with protective elements, healing, and sacrifice, due to its sympathetic links with the actual severed eye of the God.

A different but none the less impressive example are the tales surrounding the protective and malefic power of the heads of the Gorgons, from the Greek classical period. Gorgons in the tales of antiquity are described as terrifying female monsters, possessed of hair comprised of living snakes as well as a stare that could turn a man to stone in an instant.  Perhaps due to their terrifying nature, great power, and associations with immortality, it was unsurprising that the head of the Gorgons would be fashioned and used in an amulet form, known as a Gorgoneion. This Gorgoneion was primarily used for protective purposes to avert the ‘evil eye’ of malefic intent turned towards its possessor or location it was drawn upon, in a way that could well be described as fighting fire with fire. The use of  this technique, known as Apotropaic magic, was widespread in the Mediterranean region at the time.


Medusa by Arnold Böcklin, circa 1878

This short entry I hope has been of interest. Although seemingly simple it is a topic with vast depth, something I have found through exploring the stellar eyes of the Gods.  Further posts are forthcoming as work is completed and archived, but unfortunately I have temporarily been disrupted by my mundane situation, due to having to move house. This said, the PDF second part of Familiar Bonding will be completed and posted either on or hopefully soon after Samhain.

This will be the final PDF on the topics of Familiars for the foreseeable furture, and with the initial gnosis of both the Eyes and the Foundations of the lower body thus complete, work will begin on creating the three remaining stellar gates for the  for the preparation for the incorporation of the spheres and finally the crossing of the abyss itself.

Ave Belial,

Welcoming the Ivory Spider

Posted in Luciferianism, Occultism, Paganism, The Path of Flames, Traditional Witchcraft with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 24, 2015 by Sypheara

The Gateway given by the Gods now stands successfully opened on the physical and spiritual planes. Directed by Belial and Lucifer over three separate rituals across an entire lunar cycle, the formula was given fully and the Stele of the Elemental Guardian and Guide constructed, carved deep into wood, inked in love, and filled with rivulets of blood in devotion.

This would be my first work in the medium of wood. However, even as I prepared the first lines, etching them deep into the surface of a birch end grain block, it became evident that it had been the correct choice. Each chiselled shape seemed to radiate power, the lines dancing across the vision. The process was kept simple. Using a basicc set of chisels, and a hammer, the outline was created and then enlarged to suit the icon given. Once completed, the lines were brought to life with a thin line of artist’s ink, which ran slowly throughout the prepared image.

The first ritual saw the Gate Sigil granted at the Temple Initiation pre-merged with the incredibly powerful Stellar Glyph to form the complete Gate. This symbol was blooded in the name of the Gods, with attention being given to its particular patron, as the work was commenced under the influence of the darkened New Moon.

In sexual magickal communion the Trident were called forth into the Flesh. With the invocational possessive state achieved, Belial took charge, merging with the Self. At the height of Sexual Communion, an explosion of Energy up and through the spine and from the Sigil occured, for a split second resulting in the loss of awareness. After recovering, the voice of Belial could be heard, confirming the validity of the formula and the priming of the Gate via blood and bone.With one final act prompted by him, subtle visions of the Gate on the other planes could be seen, its surface now glowing a powerful and radiant silver. Lines of blue and gold energy ran across its surface as it opened slowly to reveal a dark recess through which no light penetrated, confirming the success of this first stage of the work.

Gradually, from the darkness, a sigil danced forth of a moon being split in twain by numerous receding dancing rectangles. This vision, although clear and calm, grew frustrating and maddening as the shapes danced into inconceivably impossible shapes within the mind’s eye. Soon however, as I calmed myself down with Belial and Lucifers aid, a distinct shape came into focus. Of a large, moonlike eye surrounded by astrological symbols in a web like shape. This sigil burned brightly, and Lucifers energy became more intense.

As this experience settled, the initial rite was closed with the Gods thanked for their assistance. Gnosis was given, the Gods indicating that the new granted sigil was to be etched into the other side of the block, and opened in the similar manner to the first on the night of the next Full Moon.

Again calling the Trident forth in ritual, this time Lucifer took a much greater role, elevating his energies to match that of Belials. As the new sigil was blooded, the Lord of Thaumiels energies could be felt, slowly enveloping the self in a strong and powerful energy. In the possessed state, Lucifer made it clear that the sigil was in fact the sigil of the Elementary Guardian. He hinted at its vast power, and mandated it be unlocked in the same manner as the gate of Belial itself, using Belials physically bestown gifts merged with his own current. This was carried out as directed, resulting in the seal brimming with energy, seemingly coming alive to the eyes.Continued sexual meditation saw the gate in bilocation glow with an intense energy, the gate now filled with a strange luminescent light. This energy came in waves, vibrating from low and subtle to high and overwhelming. Similar to the visions in the first ritual, the gate swung open.

From the darkness beyond, a great, white writhing mass thrust forth without delay, a startlingly chthonic emanation contrasting greatly with the stellar current that had been up to that point powerfully delivered through the gate itself. It rapidly grew in size and mass, spilling outwards into the cave area, assembling itself into various forms as it did so.First, it assumed the form of a gigantic, furred white serpent, with piercing amber eyes. This form was not ‘pure’ snake, being also possessed of many writhing centipede like tentacled legs. This form quickly shifted fully into a centipede, and before the senses could even adjust, it had transformed into a gigantic, arachnid like entity. This visage first merged through the guise of a spider, before proceeding to that of a gigantic, pincerless white furred scorpion. Its form settled there, as gigantic, white wings burst forth from its back, yellow eye upon yellow eye covering their surface. These looked not dissimilar from bat wings, but unlike a bat’s, were covered in large, beautiful white feathers. Upon its head the entity bore a large azure crystal inset into its flesh. Beyond this, further along its back, its primary sigil was evidently marked upon its flesh. Like the gate, its entire being let off a startlingly powerful stellar current despite its appearance.

With the being having presented itself, and no warnings or feelings of insidious intent detected by myself or indicated by Lucifer and Belial, it was invited into the physical flesh to take part in the communion. It obliged readily, coming into the form.Even as it did so any clear vision of the cave itself dissolved, instead replaced with images of this beings aura being superimposed over my own form. I began to feel the spine beginning to curve as the energy levels heightened further. Suddenly, without any prior warning, a very intense vision of this entity stabbing one of its appendages deep into my stomach, continuing on up into the ribcage, filled my entire being. My physical, mental and spiritual form contracted reflexively as it deposited something within the soul body, and I began to thrash violently. This lasted for several, tense seconds, resulting in a total loss of bodily control. The pain suddenly ceased, and the presence of the entity was replaced by that of Belial, stepping in to moderate the flow of energy from the contact.


An inverted version of Ensouls Illustration (linked) depicts an entity similar to the Ivory Spider

At this point my awareness shifted back towards my physical form, and I could hear my own voice now, repeating an unknown mantra. A repeating pattern of four distinct words that seemed to resonate with the same pattern of the encountered entity. The entities presence could still be felt subtlety, and it began to communicate, first in images and then by voice. It confirmed the mantra was its words of power, and identified itself primarily with one of them, the final one, as its name. It referred to itself by a title, ‘The Ivory Spider’, and related its task as a Primary Guide, Protector and Pathfinder on the road to Middle Road Ascension, revealing stellar gnosis for assimilating both sides of the tree.

The second ritual was closed as the first. Over the proceeding two weeks further gnosis and communication was had with the entity outside of any active ritual workings. This consisted of contact not just with the entity but information released via the injected venoms themselves. Flashes and sigils depicting this process were released clearly to the conscious mind. The venoms could be seen congealing around the soul, wrapping around and infusing deep into its makeup.

A third ritual to settle the process was requested via the entity. To fully create the finished gate, the entity instructed that the four words of power, including the word of its primary name, were to be written around the edge of the block in a widdershins fashion in the Theban alphabet, each word being blooded individually and invoked from within the constructed circle. From this, as communion was taken at the level of the flesh, the Ivory Spider disclosed more.

Initially this was knowledge pertaining to the middle pillar, and the uniting of both life and death on a Stellar Path of Ascent. The entity made clear the extent of neglect of the Paths of the Stars by Man in the current age, detailing how now few travel or attempt to earth Stellar Currents, compared to ages in our past that could be considered relatively recent. The entity described itself as a pathfinder and guide along these pathways, describing how it also maintains and spins new connections.

Of most importance, the entity gave advice to finish existing, grounding works, before work with Belial and Lucifer himself should be undertaken, under Hecate and its own watchful eye, to initiate the beginnings of these powerful soul transmutative rites.

The entity was not only supportive, but confirmed planned work with granting the primary familiar a body was of importance; The entity heavily indicated that this will be of great importance in providing a physical grounding, assisting greatly in the forthcoming rites which channel these stellar currents. It is to be noted here the importance of a physical anchoring point. This fact is one that is often overlooked, even though it is of utmost importance to the work. Their successful construction is one that becomes mirrored through every realm when worked correctly. The entity in its own words was adamant that the ‘triad’ of the gateway stele, as well as both familiars was complete before any further work commenced on the path to ensure correct balance in the self. Whether integral to the work itself or simply a personal step needing completed before the new path is walked was not disclosed.

With discourse and communion finished, the entity withdrew, and the completed Stele of the Ascending Gateway of Belial and Lucifer was wrapped in black silk, tied with red cord, and placed into the guarding and waiting hands of the empowered doll familiar.

It is at this point an honest word must be said. These works will be powerful, and due to their innate nature, contain sensitive information and not everything can be disclosed immediately onto the blog. As such what can be shared will need to be limited until this part of the path is walked to its conclusion, the gnosis assimilated, and the Watchers give license for it to be disclosed in detail.

As always however, as much as can be shared openly will be made available via the blog, so the path can be illustrated as a guide to others.

In Nomine Hecate,
