Satanists, Why the hostility?

I received an email asking about love and hatred, including the following comment:

My Dear Aleister,

My question is “Why all the hostility?” It seems that Satanists are all having a bad day – everyday! Do you have any thoughts on this?

I thought about that question for a few minutes and decided this person is absolutely right… a certain extent. In modern society, there seems to be much more hate and hostility on “Satanic” forums, especially when questioning the prevailing ideas and philosophies. This is not a matter of questioning another’s views or trying to understand a belief……far from it. It seems like these cliquish online groups amount to one big “asshole”. Thankfully, not all Satanists are “pricks and cunts”satanic-children

Once something is said it can never be taken back or retracted. Some people believe saying “I’m sorry” will fix any wrongdoings against someone. That is certainly not true. Whether a person apologizes for what they have said or the actions they have taken is superfluous. The fact is, words and deeds remain in place long afterward. It is a never-ending spiral; a circular topography, returning to conscious thought again and again. “Sorry” does not amend this cycle and the thought, deed, or word is forever released. We certainly need to look closer and when we do, we cannot (and should not) rely upon an apology to make things right because it simply does not, nor will it ever truly metamorphose a negative action or word into a positive.

When we have made a mistake or taken actions which were not meant to hurt someone, it is vastly different from having the intention to create harm. We can certainly see that some may misconstrue words and read more into the meaning or implication however, it is important to realize that the overall spirit may deliver those words with hostility, hate, or threat. Looking beyond the mere definition of a word is certainly important, especially when deciding if harm has in fact been done and something worthy of hate / harm truly occurred. In the meaning of the words and the context in which they fall will certainly define the user’s intent with a degree of certainty that a verbal attack was launched toward the receiver.

What are your thoughts? Leave a comment with your point of view.

Sanctum of Shadows Volume III: Spiritus Occultus by Aleister Nacht

Auspicium Melioris Aevi

Everyone is looking for answers to the riddle of life. Whether it is the meaning or the very essence of existence, we all seek solace in knowledge. I too searched for an absolute which was, at least for sometime, fleeting and elusive. One axiom was true in my case: “Stop looking and the answer will soon appear”.

Something simple and unassuming seeped into the very fabric of my existence long ago in New Orleans and the life-changing power opened a plethora of choices for my future. This was more than a mysterious encounter with a celestial form beyond human senses; it was the fulfillment of meaning with a sustained euphoria which has lasted for decades and continues to this very day. Did I see a ghost; have an out-of-body experience or was I taken by aliens? No, although those would certainly be worth experiencing.Satanism is Worshipping Satan

Opening the mind to possibilities is the most exciting part of living this fleshly existence. Knowing there are choices and the selection is not as limited as some would portray and the commonly accepted principles may, in fact, be flawed or intentional lies.

Youth is wasted in a mad race to “acquire” possessions; trinkets for show or social status. This energy expended into the atmosphere dissipates as quickly as the minutes, hours, days, months, and years invested in fruitless endeavors without satisfaction or fulfillment; no dividends from sad and misplaced usury. This is the ultimate faux pas and the cost is priceless youth, energy, enthusiasm, hope, and a flawed future as a byproduct.

There is a fit for everyone in this world but it is not without suffering. There is no preordained destiny for anyone and each person’s story is being written by an invisible implement of his or her device. There is no one to save you from yourself and do not expect a pact with Satan will ensure a life of luxury and / or privilege. These are lies for the misguided to consume while begging for more lies. Beggars are rarely choosers, especially when nothing of value is offered as consideration.

“Children of Death” are always pawns in a game where the stakes are extremely high and loss means everything. The promise of quick and complete satisfaction is only ensured in the fairy tales of a misplaced childhood. The remnants of broken dreams only add insult to injury when the future quickly fades into the past. Is it a lesser crime to steal a person’s physical property or (although intangible) his or her hope?Demonic and Satanic Sex

If one peers into the abyss, the darkness will certainly gaze back in an attempt to understand what is wanted, desired, or otherwise contemplated. Beneath the shallow epidermis of human emotion is a void that must be filled and this area is neither discerning nor reasoning; reason will cease to exist in the dark chasms of raw feeling. The question of “why” will never be raised when any justification is useless and individual desire is unquantified.

BTW, I visited Mad Hatters today. I recommend stopping in if you are in St. Pete.

I’m glad you are still here with me……

Satanic Blessings,

Satanic Ritual Mass – Blasphemy, Sex and Blood

Brothers and Sisters of the Left Hand Path,

You may have noticed my absence from the blog………I needed a break from all public life. With my [past] manager’s indiscretions, I summarily fired all but my closest and most loyal colleagues, took a pound of flesh from Cohen’s wallet and ended his career with his legacy of a “Thief”. I found myself at the end of an era; needing closure and time to heal the emotional wounds. Satanic Woman On Altar Continue reading

Satanism, Murder and Sexual Satisfaction

Satanists and Covens

Humans are social animals and as such, we all seek approval and acceptance from our peers and friends. We as animals certainly want to fit into a clique or circle and it is important for us to seek out those who are like us or seem to be similar to us by certain attributes. The Satanic “Coven” is a prime example of like-minded individuals who come together to accomplish certain goals or tasks because they enjoy one another’s company and that which they are doing together. A coven is some what a family unit; you may have that older and perhaps ‘wiser’ Matriarch or Patriarch who keeps the group focused and moving together with solidarity toward the groups goals. You may also have those who are like sisters and brothers. The younger generation is also represented as those who have come of age and are now flexing their magical wings as they set about on their path.Satanic Sanctum

The Satanic coven is a cohesive unit that should be a functional group. Roles and responsibilities are very important within the coven and also the norms of the group (the acceptable behaviors) should be established in order for everyone to feel comfortable. In intimate situations or environments, the coven can be a source of support, joy and true friendship. The coven can also devolve into contention, disarray and the lack of guidance and supervision will cause the coven to reach the point of dismantling.

The Satanic Journey

We are all on a life-long journey of discovery. Even those who have practiced the Satanic Arts for a lifetime, should be constantly searching for better processes, higher enlightenment and the revelation of illusive knowledge. As we live, so shall we learn and master new techniques and methods. We, in turn, pass this information to the generations coming after us in history. We sow, reap and re-sow; making the Satanic landscape fertile for the future.Lovely Vagina

Satanism and Devil Worship are often misunderstood concepts for the public at large. Anton LaVey was a pioneer, bringing the Dark Arts out of the closet however, Anton was clearly an atheist. There is nothing wrong with a person believing (or not believing) in conformance with others yet, the “face of Satanism” is always seen as “LaVeyan”. For the most part, his beliefs leave true Searchers ’empty’; at least that is what the emails I receive seem to indicate. So where does one go when the he / she travels suddenly ends?

Aleister Nacht’s Manager Resigns; Pays Settlement

For those who have asked, yes it is true. I have issued a release on my website however, I decided to post the information on social media as well.

I appreciate everyone’s understanding while going through this difficult time. What has been done is in the past and I choose to look to the future instead of reliving the past. A sincere “Thank You” to my close friends who have messaged me with concern. All is well and I look forward to putting this behind me. Let’s look at this as a victory and now focus on the Grand Climax of July 27th. Again, thank you!


Aleister Nacht’s Manager Resigns; Pays Settlement
July 19, 2014
Pass-A-Grille, FL

Adam Cohen, manager and longtime business partner of best-selling author Aleister Nacht, resigned earlier today and agreed to pay $425,000 to settle allegations of fraud and misappropriation of the author’s funds. In a statement issued this afternoon, Nacht called the circumstances surrounding Cohen’s resignation “A betrayal of trust motivated by greed”. “Adam was a business partner I trusted and he took advantage of that trust. He will now pay for his greed”.

Details of the settlement included Cohen’s immediate resignation, an uncompensated surrender of his 30% stake held in Loki/Speckbohne Media, and the payment of $425,000, which includes $225,000 owed to Nacht in back royalties. Due to the agreed upon settlement terms, neither Loki/Speckbohne Media nor Aleister Nacht will file criminal charges or seek future legal remedies.

Cohen could not be reached for comment.

Marie Laveau, Madame LaLaurie, Countess Báthory and the Ten Commandments

Ode to the Mastery of Evil

I am very much a student of history and as such, there are those people I find fascinating and stimulating. I respect “Leaders”; they are the ones with the courage to go it alone and say “Fuck Off” when a particular situation so dictates the necessity. I want to point out some women for their “brand” of culture and societal impact. Some are good and some are bad however, all are recognized for the mastery of their chosen proclivity. Let’s get started…….

1. Marie Laveau First on my list (in no certain order), from my hometown of New Orleans, is Marie Catherine Laveau. Marie Laveau is respected by many practitioners of the magical arts. Known as the Voodoo Queen, her ‘pink’ burial plot (St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, South Quadrant) often serves as site for Voodoo, Hoodoo and other ritualistic acts, including Satanic Black Masses. Marie Catherine Laveau Burial Plot St. Louis Cemetery New Orleans LouisianaMarie was a Creole free person of color, a hairdresser born from her mother’s brief plaçage arrangement and a skillful gris-gris Voodoo practitioner. She would hold ceremonies, dance naked around a bonfire, and sell gris-gris bags. Of her “magical” abilities, she claimed to have saved men from the gallows, healed the sick, and remained forever youthful. She is said to have died in her home, peacefully, in 1881. Trivia: Angela Bassett played Marie Laveau in the FX Network American Horror Story: Coven television series.

2. Marie Delphine LaLaurie Next up is Marie Delphine LaLaurie. Often calledMadame LaLaurie”, she was ahead of her time in more ways than one. She was a socialite, politically connected (her cousin was Mayor of New Orleans), was the wife of a physician, chained her cook to the stove, met the Queen of Spain and was a serial killer in Louisiana’s history. Delphine had a penchant for pain and she was exacting when administering her definition of discipline. She enjoyed the starvation of her slaves, issued slow, excruciatingly painful beatings, slashing / flaying their skin and other brutal mutilations such as chaining the victim up-side-down with weights suspended from the victim’s neck while she administered beatings with horse whips. This type of torture would last until the victim expired; sometimes as long as a week! Her beautiful mansion on Royal Street had been transformed into a stylized ‘little shop of horrors’ as revealed to the public following a fire in 1834 at the home. After the fire, the grizzly acts were revealed and it is believed Delphine fled to Paris however, some skeptics claim she never went further than the north shore; carrying on her vexing methodologies until her quite mundane death……..succumbing to pneumonia although a hunting accident has also been used as her cause of death. It is estimated that the number of slaves who died at the hands of LaLaurie could be as many as one hundred. Trivia: Kathy Bates played Madame LaLaurie in the FX Network American Horror Story: Coven television series.

3. Countess Elizabeth Báthory Elizabeth Báthory (known as the Blood Countess) was one of the most prolific female serial killers in history however, I find hMarie Delphine LaLaurie. Often referred to as "Madame LaLaurie", she was ahead of her time in more ways than one. She was a socialite, politically connected (her cousin was Mayor of New Orleans), was the wife of a physician, chained her cook to the stove, met the Queen of Spain and was a serial killer in Louisiana's interesting because she bathed in the victim’s blood; often bathing in the warm blood while her victim was being bled-out (exsanguination) while dying. Other brutal acts included, biting the victim to draw blood, beating the victim, burning, crushing fingers and hands, freezing, starving and exsanguination. She also forced one victim to cut off, cook and eat her own flesh before beating her and draining her blood into a bathtub……for Báthory’s healthcare regiment bath. After her husband’s death, she and four collaborators were accused of torturing and killing hundreds of girls and young women, with one witness attributing to them over 600 victims, though the number for which they were convicted was 80. Elizabeth herself was neither tried nor convicted. In 1611, she was punished for her crimes by bricking her up in rooms of the Csejthe Castle. She died in 1614.

Ten Commandments; Constitution for the United States of Xtianity?

I am often asked my opinion about the ten (10) commandments so I felt inclined to write about the subject. As you may be aware, the commandments we originally chiseled upon stone tablets during an alleged time of unrest as Moses struggled to bring the jewish escapees under control after fleeing Egyptian bondage. As the story goes, during a forty-day stay on Mount Sinai, Moses received the Decalogue (10 Commandments) and instructions which he was to deliver to the jewish people waiting below. The events were recorded in the Pentateuch. {a.k.a. the Five Books of Moses, the first part of the Hebrew Bible [Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy]. In Judaism, it is called the “Torah” and is the first part of the Tanakh. In xtianity, it is known as the first part of the Old Testament}. This is probably more than you wanted to know……………The Bible Is Bullshit and Lies!

So, what better mechanism to control a mob of religiously-inclined extremists? Perhaps the word of god…… writing, no doubt set the stage for the coming Zealotry and Judaean revolt!! Even Maimonides was proud of the mileage gained from “The Big 10”. When challenged on any religious subject, one could simply say “god will not be questioned”…..end of the conversation.

“Those who observe the nature of the Universe and the commandments of the Law, and know their purpose, see clearly God’s mercy and truth in everything; they seek, therefore, that which the Creator intended to be the aim of man, viz., comprehension.”  Guide for the Perplexed (circa 1190) by Moshe (Moses) ben Maimon

So, when “all hell” was breaking loose, Moses decided to take a hike up a mountain. During this 40 day jaunt, god decided the time was right to give a few laws; some moral code to serve as the basis for civilization to frame existence and harmonize coexistence for all people, of all beliefs, everywhere. It just so happened, god felt this urge right when ‘his’ people were growing impatient…….waiting for entry into their ‘promised land’; promised by god however, no one told the inhabitants about god’s plans. Some accounts attempt to excuse the jews by claiming Egyptians were the ones worshipping idols however, a golden calf was built and worshipped. Bull worship was quite common during that time in history. In modern society, Bullshit worship is very common!!

When god Spoke……It Must Have Been Important!?!???!??

So, what important messages were given to his beloved children whom he loved? Let’s take a look at some tidbits that seem more discombobulated than Quentin Tarantino directing a Passion Play.

1. “I am the lord your god, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before me.”

Ok, if you feel the need to tell everyone you are god………….. Is this the most important information to be communicated at this juncture? My opinion: “Epic Fail!”

2. “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the lord your god, am a jealous god, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love me and keep my commandments.”

It is going to be difficult to get an ego this size into any temple………perhaps that is why jewish temples and xtian churches are so damn large!! Another opportunity to share the secrets of life and Religion Is Lies In Any Languageperhaps the cure for cancer however, god takes a few more minutes to stroke the ole’ ego again. More stroking continues in #3.

3. “You shall not take the name of the lord your god in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.”

Alright, there is a common theme emerging here, goddamn it!

4. “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the sabbath of the lord your god.”

More “worship me” conditional language. Where could he be worshipped better than at a temple, church, etc. Bring your money and drop it off.

5. “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the lord your god is giving you.”

Well, this was out of ‘left field’. Not the most usable information………….probably aimed at more control and worship.

6. “You shall not murder.”

Now this seems appropriate although, it is very vague. Do animals count or just humans? How will I get my golden calf to stay on the bun if I don’t kill it? This must not apply to the animal sacrifices…… know, when innocent animals are murdered in god’s name????? Too fucking confusing…….. now I want a hamburger!

7. “You shall not commit adultery.”

So, is this really the most important in the running order? What about rape? Is rape ok as long as adultery is not committed? What about pedophilia? Well, I guess that would limit the job perks when recruiting for the church………..“$hit Fire, WTF?”

8. “You shall not steal.”

So, feel free to rape, beat ’em half-to-death, but do not take the jewelry. This sounds like a bad “Dean Martin Roast” gone terribly wrong!!!

9. “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.”

?????????? Really???????? Really???????? Pretty lame!

10. “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”

Now, is this the big finale? Do not covet your neighbor’s donkey? Really? No cure for cancer, end to hunger or “useable” information?Sanctum of Shadows Volume II Corpus Satanas

A few years ago, George Carlin revealed his belief in his usual (and funny) manner. Here is his “take” on the ten commandments.

“About five thousand years ago, a bunch of reli­gious and political hustlers got together to figure out how they could control people and keep them in line. They knew people were basically stupid and would believe anything they were told, so these guys announced that God— God personally—had given one of them a list of Ten Commandments that he wanted everyone to follow. They claimed the whole thing took place on a mountaintop, when no one else was around.”

So, what do you think?

Until next time,

Aleister Nacht


Summer Solstice 2014 and Satanic Ritual

Preparation for the Summer Solstice Satanic Ritual

This year, Magnum Opus celebrates the Summer Solstice on June 21st with a tailored ritual which exemplifies ritualistic Devil worship and Demonic conjuring. Our coven continues this tradition of creation of an approach of offering Satan a fertile group to acquire and focus large amounts of energy, which applied by the coven and delivered by our demonic familiars, formulate bringing our medium to a laser’s effectiveness.Black Cats

The time between the Summer Solstice ritual (which plants the seeds) and the ensuing Grand Climax (the harvest) is sacred; this a time of Satanic incubation to “ready” the coven for the reward of diligence and patience. The celebration and associated coven solidification (Blood and Sex Ritual) allows huge amounts of energy to be created, focused and applied at the right time and amount………syncronized and orchestrated by Satan Himself.

“Sex rituals are sometimes misinterpreted as wild orgies and uncontrolled primal urges acted as drunken debauchery. While this explanation my be correct in some Satanic groups, the purpose and performance of the sex ritual is much more refined, controlled and exacting. The sex ritual delivers much more than sexual satisfaction; it is an operation that delivers powerful, focused energy. The magical Law of Synchronicity plays a role as the timed release of the energy is compounded by the group. While the promise of orgies and sex within the coven are great sales tactics to attract and influence new initiates to the coven, it is not to be overlooked as a powerful tool of magic. There are many different methods for performing a sex ritual. A High Priestess may stimulate a male coven member on the altar until ejaculation, while the coven gathers around the altar. I prefer manual stimulating a female coven member as she serves as the altar. The wonderful thing about women is multiple orgasms which creates an enormous amount of magical energy. I use my fingers on her soft G Spot which helps to control the climax, as well as allowing her to relax and enjoy the event without apprehension. Timing is important however, you must be sensitive to her needs and never leave her “hanging” or unsatisfied when completing the ritual.” Aleister Nacht; Satanic Magic Blog Satanic Sex

If you don’t like life, change it; the laws, change them; the politicians, change them and ALWAYS IMPROVE

Most Satanic practitioners are on a life-long journey in pursuit of perfection in their practice of Satanic Magic. The practitioner is constantly evolving and transforming into a more efficient and effective magician. The fact that Satanists, more especially Devil Worshipers, are constantly pursuing perfection automatically integrates continuous improvement throughout the practices and processes. For those who are truly dedicated to the dark arts, status quo is not enough. Anything remaining “the same” is not acceptable and the movement and momentum for perfecting one’s craft becomes paramount in the day-to-day working that will lead the practitioner to perfection of his or her enlightened processes. To accept substandard results is not Satanic!

There are certain stages of skill one will go through on their journey from the novice to acolyte to proficiency. It is a never-ending cycle of corrections, improvements, assessments, and adapting day by day to incorporate and improve those things once learned. A person can approach the study of magic as a situation that never ends; it is a path which will continue to travel forever since the practitioner will never feel totally satisfied with his or her abilities. There will always be a desire and drive to do more; to improve upon that which he or she masters with confidence, competence and skill. As Satanists, we are always longing for the next thing we will discover. It is this natural inquisitiveness which separates us and we recognize the potential for self-discovery with Satan.

“If a person diligently practices magic, he/she may become quite proficient however, if a person believes he/she will become proficient by reading a book and not learning the material or experimenting to find their desired magical pathway, he/she will ultimately lose interest and drift to the next trend or fad. These lost souls are doomed to repeat this cycle until accepting the fact that magic requires investment and without the investment, they will always be “on the outside looking in”.” Sanctum of Shadows Volume I: The Satanist

Satanic Ritual CovenBeing dedicated also means being passionate about the practice. To love the art and learn the art is to spend time with the art; magic is a sweetheart, a lover who is jealous and always needing more and more of your time. Invest in the relationship with self, soul and your entire being. You may study and practice a lifetime and still not feel you are even at the point of novice. Satanic magic is a never-ending journey that will bring great benefits but those benefits come with a cost. You must balance your investment with your intended return-on-investment; giving 100% at all times.

It is not an easy path but it is one that pays great dividends to the dedicated. I challenge each and every one of you to strive to increase your abilities and competencies while never accepting status quo. Always know great things come to those who not only wait but take the actions needed while waiting!

Until next time!
