I Love Halloween!!
All I can say today is “Wow”!!! For the past month our coven (Magnum Opus) has prepared for our much-anticipated ritual and celebration of Samhain. It seems like just yesterday I was sitting here, overlooking the beautiful waves and writing the blog post Satanic Ruler of the World . Time flies!
I have not been attentive to the digital world, social media or my Satanic Forum however, that “tis the way it tis…….“! I will get caught up slowly and surely. While today, I am mentally and physically exhausted, Samhain remains my favorite celebration. We are all happy, healthy and recharged by Satan and the Hosts of Hell. Nothing compares to the manifestation and presence of those who have transversed the Paradox Dimension. I sincerely hope each of you experienced the same successful and powerful rituals and celebrations! If not, I sincerely hope you will in the future.
In general terms, I receive quite a few questions about Satanic Sole Practitioners and my recommended rituals for him / her. After a ‘Quickie‘ and a cup of Jacobs Krönung, I decided to jot down a few thoughts for those inquisitive minds.
Rituals, Rites and Invocations
In my opinion, there are far more Satanists that practice their craft alone. They neither need nor want an affiliation with other Satanists; socially or otherwise, and I applaud them. As I have explained in the past, Satanism is something different to each individual. Even if a person is affiliated with a Satanic coven, he / she usually performs a few special workings solo; I do this also. There are times when I simply want solitude to communicate with Satan or others. I love my coven members but in some settings, I prefer to be alone……..which does not mean lonely.
In the Book of Satanic Magic (now #43 Best Seller), I share a few rituals, rites and Satanic invocations that are perfect for the Satanist practicing alone. My first recommendation is the Ritual of Baphomet. This ritual is great for opening the “Satanic doorway” and setting the tone for performance of my second recommendation; the Ritual of the Black Flame. Both are perfectly suited for the sole practitioner.
For the advanced practitioner seeking Satanic power during a Destruction Ritual, I recommend an Invocation to Azazel. Those who know Azazel can attest to His absolute power, dedication and attention to detail while delivering accordingly. A word of warning is mandatory for the novice; do not call upon Azazel without true cause. An offering should be made to show sincerity and gratitude after the Destruction Ritual and tasks accomplished. Although never driven by greed or selfish gain, Azazel is very impatient and will ‘forcibly take‘ from another simply to inflict pain. He is punctual, pleasant in appearance, a teacher of tactics and enjoys a very close and special relationship with Lucifer.
Hopefully I have provided some suggestions that will be of value for the sole practitioner. Ave Satanas!
