The New Book: Satanism and Devil Worship Magnae Sapientiae Sathanas

Satanism is a pathway to cognitive illumination through the application of magical concepts and operations for higher self-awareness, personal knowledge acquisition, spiritual freedom, and individual evolution. Satanic rites and rituals are the methods used by practitioners to ‘bridge the gap’ between the physical world, which is limited to three dimensions, and the spiritual world which is limitless. Satanism and Devil Worship Magnae Sapientiae Sathanas by Aleister Nacht contains the information necessary for successful physical and metaphysical Satanic Magic.

Satanism: An Interview with Aleister Nacht

Note: Satanic Magus Aleister Nacht was interviewed by Domina Richter on Friday December 21, 2018, (Winter Solstice) and asked about his coven, public persona, and the future of Satanism. This is the first interview Nacht has granted in two years.

Q: You released a video of yourself this week on YouTube. So why did you choose to “go public” in this video?

A: I have been very conservative about sharing my personal life with the public although I could not always keep my life out of the public media. I suppose everyone likes to have a mental image of the person that has written a book, blog posts, etc. I felt the time was right to provide a visual medium for my readers. The only thing that should be out front is my Satanic message and if I can accomplish that by adding an image to my persona, then I have accomplished what I set out to do. I am still protecting my anonymity, as you can plainly see in the video, but there has to be a hint of mystery. The public has not seen me in all these years so I don’t believe it is important (to them) to see my face.

Aleister Nacht

Q: Do you plan to reveal your face in the future?

A: I think it goes back to the first question. I am a very private person and I enjoy anonymity. I do not seek public recognition and quite honestly being famous is not something I am interested in. I very much enjoy blending into the population. I may feel differently in the future but for now, that is how I feel.

Q: So, can we expect more videos in the future because of this new persona?

A: Yes. Absolutely. I have wanted to be able to meet the reader halfway with an idea and sometimes communicating in the written word is very limiting. It is almost two-dimensional when we live in a three-dimensional world. Being able to at least articulate thoughts in front of a camera will be easier and I believe ultimately, more effective than just writing a blog post. However, I will still write a blog because that is the source of material for the videos.

Q: So you feel that writing will still be predominately your medium, correct?

A: Yes. Blogging is what brought my writing to the forefront and it will continue to be the driving force in delivery of my Satanic messages. In my opinion, it is the direct link for communicating with the public.

Q: Are you working on a new book?

A: Yes. I am currently working on one which will be released in March or April of next year (2019). Unfortunately, I do not have a release date from the publisher but I believe it will be around that time.

Q: What is the new book about?

A: Well, at this point I would rather not say because several things are still in the works, such as the title of the book. All I can say is it will not be Sanctum of Shadows, Volume IV. In keeping with a “new beginning”, I am moving away from the series. I may write more Sanctum volumes in the future but for now, I am leaving it behind.

Q: While your last book Sanctum of Shadows Volume III: Spiritus Occultus sold well, it was not well received in the reviews. Why do you think that happened?

A: I believe people expect a certain form of writing from a particular writer. The third volume was really an exploration that ultimately would teach a person how to formulate ideas in such a way that it would open a dialogue between the communicator and the receiver. I know it sounds strange however in many cases people have ideas and philosophies that are very difficult to communicate in public settings because of prejudice and other things. Volume III was really a way to formulate their ideas, communicate those ideas, and be able to defend their ideas to the point of argument. Quite honestly, I thought this would be a good way to explain that process. I think it may have been too technical for many readers. One review, and I’m paraphrasing, “Collection of rambling words in the form of a short story, nothing to further Satanic knowledge so avoid it” or something like that. Ouch! Not every book is going to be well received by the public and that book is a perfect example. 

Q: With the recent loss of a Magnum Opus coven member, are you now looking for a new member?

A: Actually, we have someone who will be initiated into our group. She has been waiting a long time to come into our Tampa Bay coven. We have several affiliated groups around Florida however Tampa is the core Magnum Opus group. We really have a great amount of interest when it comes to filling one of these positions. We have 13 members in each of our coven groups. Our new member comes to us from our affiliated group in Destin, Florida. She will come into the core group in Tampa and the Destin coven will back-fill her spot.

Q: Do you ever accept new coven members “off the street”, so to speak?

A: Not in the Tampa Bay group. New members join an affiliated coven at another location. It does not happen very often, but it does happen. Overall, Magnum Opus membership is very stable with little change except for deaths, relocations, etc. When someone is accepted and joins, they are usually very settled and established which contributes to membership stability.

Q: So how does a Satanic coven recruit new members?

A: In the case of Magnum Opus, it is a methodical administrative process. First, we do not solicit by “asking” someone to join. A candidate must ask to join the coven, which usually happens well in advance of being considered. This implies a prerequisite relationship with one (or more) existing coven members. It goes without saying we do not tell everyone we meet “Hi, I am a Devil Worshipper….” so these personal relationships evolve over time. When a coven needs to replace a member, it is communicated to all groups. Coven members can put a name forward for consideration and the particular coven begins collecting the information needed to make a determination. Ultimately, the members of the respective coven choose the new member who is best suited for their group.

Q: Do the groups ever get together and perform rituals?

A: Absolutely. The Grand Climax is a series of Satanic rituals performed during a week in July when all groups participate at one location. It is a great opportunity to catch-up with those you have not seen in a while. We have at least one ritual outdoors on a small secluded island that one of our members owns. We kayak everything we need for the night; hibachi, coolers, food, beverages, ritual implements, a couple of tents, and sleeping bags. I guess you could call it “Satanic Camping”! A lot of fun.

Q: I was really delighted that you granted this interview. You have not done that in the last few years. Why is that?

A: There are certain interviewers who look for some type of “scandal or dirt” during an interview because that’s what sells. Honestly, it is very tiring to censor myself in real-time and for that reason, I simply walked away from interviews. I will see how things go in the future.

Q: You are on social media but you do not “spam” the public. Is that deliberate?

A: Yes. If people sign-up for my mailing list, that means they want communication. I really do not care where a person is eating dinner or what they are eating. I do not believe most people are interested in where I am, where I am going, or what I am doing every second of the day. I may be mistaken however that’s the way I feel. Social media is a wonderful platform for communication but there should be boundaries. There are people who tweet, check-in, etc. with nothing important to say. “So what; you are eating pancakes at IHOP?” To me, it is not “breaking news” that someone is going to the grocery store. I really don’t care.

Q: What do you think about the popularity of Satanism today?

A: I think Atheistic Satanism is enjoying media attention, good or bad, and I really like the role in activism they are currently playing. I am a Theistic Satanist so our beliefs are different but I recognize their social contributions. The issue of “equal rights under the law” has been brought to the forefront of public awareness which has been sorely needed by all occult practitioners. I am really happy to see it happening today.

Q: Do you feel that Satanism is “in good hands” in the coming decades?

A: I do. Like many of my colleagues in the Occult, I am getting older and while I love being a quasi-ambassador of Satanism, in the next few years I hope to see the younger practitioners step up and fill the position. I am encouraged by members of my Dark Arts Forum who are smart, driven to do the work, remain open-minded, and broaden their perspectives. It is very time-consuming and detracts from personal life so a person must be passionate about the message or he / she will quickly move on to something else.

Q: Before we end the interview, do you have any special messages for your readers?

A: Always dig deeper into the subject matter and make time to learn and truly understand Satanism and Satanic Magic. It is a long but very rewarding journey for those who are dedicated to perfection. Satanic blessings to all my readers and thank you for allowing me to write about my favorite subject, Satanism. Hail Satan!

A New Beginning

Lucifer and Life

Black Candles Burn, All Minds Aligned

Deus Culpa

In the last few months, we have witnessed the legal implosion of the band Ghost; another in a long line of supposed greed-driven betrayals in popular society. I have been a fan of Ghost for many years, since their meager beginning and ascent into the stratosphere of stardom. Ghost band lawsuit is ongoing.My first album, Opus Eponymous, was sent to me by a friend in the UK. The album is vinyl (yes I am old school) and I was impressed with the “In your face” manner of delivery and unabashed praise of Satan (Sathanas). Very few things make such an impression so indelibly in my mind. The tunes were singable and melodic (not that I do not appreciate a growl or two from other bands) and the song Ritual was so infectious – you want to jump right into the chorus. That was in 2011 and needless to say, I awaited the sophomoric release that would prove Opus Eponymous and Ghost were simply a fluke or built to last. Enter Infestissumam.

Receive, Consume, Digest, Defecate

I followed the labor pangs of Infestissumam through contacts in Nashville, Tennessee although it was not praise. Having solicited vocalists to provide backing vocals, singing psalms for Satan in the “bible belt” was met with an overall rejection from all offers, including a quasi-ban through the local musicians union. The project backing vocals were provided later in Los Angeles; the City of Angels will never say “No” to money, regardless of the subject matter. Then came the issue of pressing the recording to be distributed. The problem being most manufacture of vinyl and CDs is accomplished by a limited number of companies; again located in and around the Nashville area. Who said the media is controlled by “the few”? Once released, the album substantiated Ghost as a band “who could go the distance”.

Fast forward to 2017 and we see the results of ego and avarice; the vital ingredients which actually created a sound like no other and propelled Ghost during the rise from Linköping to a place in music history, including a Grammy Award. Whether this was a band collaboration or one person’s vision, it required the work and contribution of many. The question will be answered in the courts, penance paid as prescribed, and the mystique of Ghost…..lost forever. To me, this is the real tragedy of the situation. It is almost a betrayal of all the fans, similar to the first time seeing Kiss without makeup and the fallout of the band members conducted in the public forum. Perhaps the human love and worship of “Mummy Dust” is ultimately to blame however, everything changes and all things ultimately become history.

Cry for Absolution

For me, all of this opens a wound which I have unhappily nursed since my own betrayal by my former manager in 2014. When someone from outside the circle takes a shot, it is easily dismissed; almost expected. When the knife comes from within, it is sometimes difficult to put into perspective. As they say, “opportunity makes a thief” but it is still a shock when it really happens but we must remember humans are animals and as such, we will lie, steal, etc. to further our own agendas and acquire as we desire. We as Satanists should understand this fact more than anyone else on the planet. Ultimately, we each have a primal obligation to improve our particular situation. Anyone who denies this tenant is simply lying to himself / herself. Turning the other cheek results in two cheeks slapped.

The life of a Satanist is sometimes a two-edged sword. From the circles in which we travel to the way we reconcile our lives, the knowledge we possess sometimes fails to adequately shield our feelings and deepest thoughts. We look to each new day with cautious optimism, always cognizant of those orbiting our relationship nucleus and remaining wary of climatic changes in those relations. We know full well that any moment the knives may become unsheathed and just like that, the dreaded deed is done.

Until next time,

Aleister Nacht Satanic Magic Blog – One Million Visitors

Brothers and Sisters,

I have two important milestones to share with you.

I. Last week my new book Sanctum of Shadows Volume III: Spiritus Occultus was released, entering the chart at #62 in the Amazon Top 100. You (my reader) made that happen and I sincerely thank you for not forgetting about me while on and off  ‘sabbatical’. You are the reason I write and I hope to never let you down! Here is the promo for Spiritus Occultus. Enjoy!!!

II. Last week, this blog achieved the One Million Blog Visitors milestone. The Aleister Nacht Satanic Magic Blog has one (1) million visitorsThis is really exciting to me because it has brought many friendships and differing perspectives into the light; allowing so many people outside our nucleus to learn and interact in a peaceful and intelligent manner. There are still so many who remain in the shadows and do not participate however, the blog is here if / when they decide to participate. This year I want to build the Dark Arts Forum membership while maintaining our established “quality standard”. Our forum is small (only 1,201 members), however, we have attracted and retained smart, insightful, respectful, and engaging members. While I want to add new members, I also want to ensure we do not become like some forums; a clique of judgemental self-professed experts as “atheistic” Satanists. I digress…..

I would also like to have a chat room (which we have) but I want to ensure the discussions are constructive. This is difficult to do because society (as a whole) goes straight to the “fuck you and your stupid idea” position. Having turned 50 years old, engaging in these fruitless verbal battles requires more energy than I am willing to invest. If a person is sincere and dedicated, I will help them but I will not debate the very existence of Satan with a closed-minded atheist. I get nothing from that exchange except a headache. I will share the passage below.

The Atheistic Satanist (which is certainly an oxymoron) reading this will quickly dismiss my attestation. For it is impossible for some to convince they are shortchanging themselves by taking the easy way out of the complex question of magick. For them, it is easier to simply say “There is nothing on the other side…..in fact, there is no other side”. These individuals have succeeded at limiting their own reality and ultimately, the reality of those who are sincerely searching for truth. This results in the ‘blind leading the blind’ and both are destined to fall into the chasm of the dolt, mundane imbecile.

Sanctum of Shadows Volume III: Spiritus Occultus – Sathanas nos Liberavit

For my sincere readers, I am here for you along the journey. There are others just like you, seeking answers and intelligently exchanging ideas. There is always someone who will soon experience what you have experienced and vice versa. Reach out and ask questions and if received with patience, proceed. If your question is met with “you are stupid and so is your idea” rest assured you have engaged an atheist and as such, he / she has nothing of value to offer and this person will drain your precious life. Some people are worthless……….

Sincere Satanic Blessings to all who believe!

For those who do not believe, you have no intellectual value to offer any of us who do believe!

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,

Aleister
