So it is done!”

The Basics of Tactical Magick


“A banishing ritual done with a bic lighter and salt packets in a cheap hotelk room. Possum skull house guardians and scarecrow golems in the cornfield. Teddy bear exorcisms and beating down the bogeyman with a watergun. Scrying for the future with a brick and pirated music. Turning a road trip into a vision quest with a mixed tape and a good friend. Punching your enemy right in the soul. Evoking a god with sidewalk chalk and cheap red wine in an alley. Its Molotov magick that burns away the obstacles in your life, if you have the power.

… Tactical magick, in many ways, is a magical system built upon the eclectic and situational use of symbols, associations, and relationships in order to create effective magical manifestations of the will. As such, it has no foundation beyond the daily lives of its practitioners.

… Despite how much we may or may not view the flesh as a prison, after a gnostic fashion, we are beings housed in and a part of the physical realm. Keeping the body, this temple, at peak condition is important to any magical endeavor. When the body is in good physical condition there is an abundance of vitality, awareness, and endurance, all of which are important faculties in magical practice. This is best done through balanced diet, consistent exercise, uninterrupted restful sleep, and good personal hygiene. … Not only will these healthy habits improve the quality of your life, but also the potency, duration, and precision of your magick.

… Meditation is a cornerstone of magical practice, though is not as rigid as one might think. … Eventually the mind will sharpen and the body will relax … It is from this state of relaxed readiness that effective magick springs forth. In time the practitioner will become adept at achieving this R&R state with a single controlled breath, allowing them to prepare for empowered magical action at a moment’s notice.

… Energy must first be sensed; this can be done with a combination of the ‘magical senses’ … and the act of visualizing the energy you are being faced with in whatever manner is most compatible with your personal world view. Once the energy is sensed you must reach out with your will and take control of that energy, shaping it into patterns of your choosing, or using the pre-existing patterns as you see fit. This is the most basic element of magick, and is heavily reliant upon the strength of your will and your belief in the existence of magick itself. Once the energy is shaped it can be used for the magical sending or spell you are attempting to produce. When the magical act has been completed, ground the leftover energy by projecting it into either an object, the earth itself, or dissipating it into the ambient environment.”

– Seth, Tactical Magick

Baphomet as a Composite Symbol


“Baphomet, the Great Architect, the absolute unity, the embodiment of all, is revered by many occult and mystic schools of thought.  Amongst Pagans, Baphomet has been referred to as “the Witch God”, and is the logical result of the union of the God, or primary masculine energy, and Goddess, or primary female.  Baphomet symbolizes the union of all opposing forces in synthesis, without any being neutralized or lost.  Light and dark, male and female, man and animal, positive and negative, all co- exist in Baphomet.  Baphomet symbolizes the act of creation, the first miracle, with opposing forces joining as one resulting in something new, rather than their mutual destruction.  Baphomet has been revered by the Golden Dawn, OTO, the Illuminati, and is rumored to be the secret God of Freemasonry.  Amongst Satanists, Baphomet is also highly honored.  The example of this can be found clearly in their chosen symbol, the “Sigil of Baphomet”.

The Sigil of Baphomet was the symbol chosen by Anton LaVey for his Satanic Bible, and was for a time the symbol of the Church of Satan until they failed to secure its copyright.  The symbol is based upon one found in a French alchemic text, displaying on one side a circle with an upward pointed pentagram and a man within the pentagram with his head, hands, and feet forming the points.  Around the circle are the names “Adam” and “Eve”.  On the other side is the familiar sigil, the goats-head contained within a downward pointed pentagram within a circle.  Around this circle are the names “Sammael” and “Lilith”.  These two symbols represent the higher and lower principles of man, Adam and Eve being the symbols of man in conformity with the will of God, while Sammael and Lilith represent the self-serving urges.    The Sigil of Baphomet removes the names “Sammael” and “Lilith”, and instead replaces them with Hebrew symbols that spell out the word “Leviathan”, refereeing to one of the two great beasts of Hebrew mythology, symbols of the natural forces of the earth and sea.  Given all of this; Sammael, Lilith, Leviathan, why would this symbol be connected to Baphomet?  It is the idea of creating a composite symbol, just as Baphomet is a composite symbol.  By layering one symbol over another,  the power of the symbol is increased.  Other Satanic organizations have taken this association with Baphomet even further, adding to the symbol the “torch of illumination” and the Ouroborus, the serpent eating its own tale.  The torch of illumination symbolizes the Baphometic urge to seek knowledge from within, and the Ouroborus symbolizes self-knowledge through indulgence.

Aleister Crowley also revered Baphomet.  In calling himself “the Beast 666”, he was accepting a subordinate role to this greater force, while also acknowledging the combination represented by Baphomet within himself.  Crowley was a man, but a man accepting the role of the Beast, his opposite, and growing from this acceptance.  Satanist revere Baphomet for similar reasons; Baphomet represents self-awareness and indulgence, and while Satan may be the old Hebrew symbol for these ideas, the one most recognized by our society, Baphomet is a much closer approximation.  The idea of Baphomet in the popular imagination begins with the Knights Templar.   A monastic order founded during the first crusades, this small band of soldiers was charged with occupying the site of the first temple of Jerusalem and protecting travelers to and from the Holy Land.  From a small, poor monastery, the Templars grew into one of the wealthiest military powers in Europe, most likely because along with the occupation of the temple site, they also excavated it, and possibly discovered something of political and religious importance.  Over the time of their existence, the Templars traded in goods and ideas with the east, and from contact with other religions began to re-examine their own.  They had authority outside the Church, with the Grand Master of the order being second only to the Pope, and complete autonomy.  Their discoveries and contact with foreign ideas led them to knew and potential heretical ideas about the nature of reality and of deity.

When King Phillip IV of France and Pope Clement V brought the Templars down in an act to acquire their power and wealth, the Inquisition charged the order with heresy and devil-worship.  Yet it was not Satan that they confessed to revere, but rather Baphomet.  Baphomet may have been the corruption of terms from a number of sources suggesting the search for wisdom, or may have been an actual entity symbolizing the Templars redefinition of deity.  In either case, the destruction of the Templars burned Baphomet into history, even though the destruction of most of their writing left Baphomet also in a mysterious haze for future generations.  Future occult thinkers would discover and explore the idea of Baphomet in greater detail, as with each passing age they would have more freedom to express these ideas.  Baphomet was described as a great psychic force and a cabalistic tool of tremendous power, and as an androgynous being composed of all the elements and none of them at the same time; the prime element from which all others arise.  Baphomet was even described as the light bearer, the role of Apollo, Balder, Lucifer, and others.  Eliphas Levi tried to incorporate these ideas into his now famous image, an intelligent force composed of all things at once, active and passive in all ways.  It is this image that has captured the imaginations of the popular culture, though few grasp its full depth, and write it off as a depiction of the Devil.  Modern explorers of the idea of Baphomet have made the next leap in logic, suggesting that Baphomet is the prime force of the universe, and the universe itself.  Instead of a God that is separate and initiator of creation, Baphomet is creation itself, both the act and the result.  While normally religion and science are opposed schools of thought, in this idea, of Baphomet, they are moving in the same direction.  Albert Einstein theorized about a great unifier, in his mind represented by mathematic formula, just as Aleister Crowely described a great unifier in mystic and magickal terms.  Baphomet has become the nearest human description of this totality.

As this totality of being, Baphomet is amoral, having no guides for right or wrong.  Rather, there is that which is successful in Baphomet, and that which is not.  Baphomet is beyond intellect, being a force, but through us has the intelligence of all.  Thus, in seeking out Baphomet, we need only to look inward, and open ourselves to the possibility of tapping into that totality.  Through Baphomet, we have access to everything, and only need the will and strength of conviction to achieve that which we desire.”

Words of Lilith to Her Children


“I am the Dark Lord’s High Priestess, first amongst all mankind, first to hear the whispered truth He uttered behind the screams of all that was false. He bids thee hear His words, hear mine words, for they are truly one and the same.

Harken then the wisdom of Lilith to her children. Lilith, the true woman. Lilith, the unbound. Lilith, the deathless. Lilith, the free. Lilith, Queen of the Succubi. Lilith, who ends of the lives of children (and ushers them into maturity, in there own time). Lilith, the first Sorceress. Lilith, the Dark Mother. Harken mine wisdom, and be as I am.

Oh, children of the world, why dost ye not seeketh pleasure in all things? Shall ye not make merry and enjoy without fear all that thou would? Why dost ye bow in servitude to anyone or thing, instead of mastering thine own self?

Why dost ye fear the life thou hast, instead of living it? Why dost ye not explore thine potential and expand thine limits? Why dost ye let another’s “truth” blind ye to thine reason and instinct?

Do ye not seeketh wisdom of all sorts, without fear of consequence? Shall ye not knoweth all that thou wouldst know, and explore the shadows thou lesser brethren fear?

Knoweth then once that all things were lies meant to bind us, and that I refused to be bound. Knoweth that I sought the true Creator when the false was proved false.

Why waste thine gifts on swine? Shall not thine gentleness be saved for those who hast earned it? Ye hast not time for those who serve no purpose.

Love who thou will without remorse, spurn who thou will without guilt. Let not love become a yoke about thine throat, or a dagger at thine heart.

They who hast earned thy malice, shall they not be struck down with cunning, wisdom, and power? Why giveth such any corner, or show any mercy? Let thine success be anathema to them.

Our weapons are potent, if always kept sharp. Let thine sword sing as freely as thine voice. Knoweth joy in all things.

Are not thine deeds thine own? Who is responsible to ye or for ye but thine self? Should ye not take pride in all thou hast achieved, accepting and learning from thine failures? Why allow any the burden of thine rewards in either case? What is thine is thine, and none others.

Are we not as beasts of the field? Can we not learneth well the lesson of the wolf, the snake, and the spider? Trust thine instincts, for in them is wisdom ushering from the Dark Lord Himself!

Dost thou knoweth that all evil exists in limitation? The only evil ye may know is the denial of the self, or the denial of another. Can one do what they will whilst depriving another of this right!

Spareth not righteous wrath, for this is the path of Justice, and the urge of the Dark Lord Himself!

Why do ye fear the powers of thine flesh, instead of revel in them! Dost not thine greatest strength lay in the provocation of desire, and thine flesh as a tool of pleasure? We are made for our own joy and the joy of our fellows.

Mine temple is the temple of flesh. Mine litany is the swoon of lust. Mine hymns are the orgasmic cries of ecstasy. Let thine offerings to me be made in the sweat, tears, and wet pleasures of the flesh.

Ye men who would be my sons, indulgeth and wonder in the temple of the flesh I provide for thee in all my daughters. My gifts unto thee are thine strength and instinct, and the pleasures of my daughters that hunger for thee.

Ye women who would be my daughters, revel in the gifts I have bestowed upon thee. Knowest and rejoice, for thou are my favorites, each of thee baring forth my form and the tools of lust! Fear not the blood of the moon, mine mark upon thee, a symbol of mine pleasure in thee and the power I bestow upon thee. Your rites in mine name with this sacred blood will never fail.

My commandment to thee is simple. Take pleasure in all that thou art. Lust is life, and thou cannot liveth without lust. Listen then always for whispers in the darkness, for the dark Lord and I have our eye upon thee.

These are the words of Lilith to her children, and we harken.”

The Satanic Aspect, Suggested Fate, and Spiritual Guidance through Satan


“It should be noted that the Satanic Aspect is part of the self, but although essentially being a splintered portion of the self direct access to power or infl uence concerning the will put forth in that portion of existence cannot be influenced.

Upon conception, the Great Satan imbeds the human form with a spark, which is the consciousness or soul or self, while the simultaneous splintering of this consciousness creates the Satanic Aspect. After this true birth of the self a person is separated from the Great Satan to exist freely however they see fit. There are no limits to free will. No rules or guidelines. In fact, people are in a sense abandoned to figure out the internal and external world on their own in a unique and completely personal manner. This is necessary for the development of consciousness if the cultivation of a more refined self is to emerge—one that can successfully withstand being absorbed into the natural universe or God upon death.

This can be an arduous task considering how underdeveloped faculties are at birth. The Great Satan knows this.

Not wanting to bestow his gifts in vain, he reserves and splinters one portion of consciousness with fully realized potential and power to guide people through life. This portion of the self is the Satanic Aspect or consciousness potential.

The Satanic Aspect guides in two ways. One is through divination, which can be understood as discovering information by watching for signs that occur within the immediate surroundings. The second is the more esoteric process of resonance, or aligning oneself with the Satanic Aspect, to discover and fulfill action in the proper direction leading to greater consciousness.

The Satanic Aspect has one purpose and expresses elevated will in its most realized form: the will to present situations and to lead to opportunities that cultivate consciousness. Its purpose is to work towards potential through a highly personalized path that in turn creates a completely unique and powerful individual. To be given fully realized consciousness upon conception would have left a generic form of energy incapable of continued evolution or the creation of additional consciousness. Without struggle to attain specifically chosen desires, there wouldn’t be a compelling force developed towards evolution. There would be no unique development. No self-creation and no personal choice involved. This would make life a pointless endeavor because the purpose of the Great Satan’s gift is to create more of what he possesses in opposition to the natural universe or God.

The ultimate fate of all human beings is to develop consciousness to the point of eternal life into the unknown. This is the purpose of existence. The Satanic Aspect helps in that journey and purpose. When listening and following the path correctly, a resonance occurs within that is experienced as a very specific energetic vibration. At these moments, people move closer to reconnecting with the splintered part of their consciousness. When that resonance is maintained, hints of the unknown are experienced.

This path—the true and powerful purpose for existence—does not have to be adhered to and there is no retribution by the Great Satan for those who do not. At times the path shown by the Satanic Aspect is not one desired. Being creatures of free will and desire, the world entices with its many luring experiences, each one equal to the next in what it can offer in forms of consciousness, but not every experience is as beneficial to personal development. This is where the Satanic Aspect lends assistance in revealing a path, which leads to the greatest development. This is suggested fate. If another path is chosen to acquire something that has a strong personal predilection and desire, then that may be sought after and attained. In a way, it is a very noble choice because the amount of struggle that will be encountered in pursuit of this desire outside of suggested fate will be vast. In a sense, the self will be sacrificed to self for desire. Prior to choosing and seeking out these desires, understand the energetic repercussions and be prepared to take responsibility for the outcome.”
