Deities & Demons: The Horned God & The Devil in the Details

Deities & Demons: The Horned God & The Devil in the Details

April 22, 2020 0 Comments

We’re going to attempt the impossible, and provide you with a short history of “The Devil”. To attempt the impossible is certainly in alignment with this mighty jester, prancing gleefully across the stage as Mephistopholes, Satan, Lucifer, or the more bestial versions of the Adversary found in Pan, Baphomet, and the clever Serpent in the Garden of Eden. And lets not forget our jolly ol’ friend Krampus the Christmas Demon! Who isn’t tempted at some time in their life to bow down at the altar of the Mortal Coil, to beef up the ever so hungry ego body, and to revel vampirically in this carnal circus of Earthly delights?

Deities & Demons: Ostara and the Dawn

Deities & Demons: Ostara and the Dawn

March 19, 2020 0 Comments

Ostara, Ēostre who stemmed from Astarte is both an Ancient Germanic Goddess and one of the eight Neopagan Sabbats which make up the Pagan Wheel of the Year. The Sabbat, or Holiday celebrates the re-birth of Spring after the barren winter season. The face of the Goddess Ostara is the Virginal Maiden of Spring, the smiling celestial crescent, emerging in the sky from the black horizon of winter. One must imagine the ancient European Winters to truly appreciate the return of this gentle fertility Goddess. To get through the barren season, families would store grains, nuts, dried meats and herbs for their survival. This preserved prosperity directly from the land equated with the sustaining of life when external conditions i.e. weather did not support it. Ēostre emerges from the rich Pagan...

Deities & Demons: Aphrodite

Deities & Demons: Aphrodite

February 19, 2020 0 Comments

Aphrodite is truly a deity of passion in both it’s creative and destructive capacities, and if you know anything about ancient Greek culture, you know that they adored a dramatic Goddess. In fact, the Greeks loved Aphrodite so much that they dedicated a whole festival to her every year known as Aphrodesia. This of course leads us to the word, Aphrodisiac, which is traditionally a food, drink or drug which stimulates sexual desire, but can be just about anything which serves to awaken the sensual appetite, which is essentially Aphrodite’s superpower...

Deities and Demons: Shiva the Destroyer

Deities and Demons: Shiva the Destroyer

January 08, 2020 0 Comments

Shiva is a complex Hindu Deity whose identity is inseparable from the Hindu Trimurti (or trinity) of Gods, composed of Brahma as Creator, Vishnu as Preserver, and Shiva as Destroyer. In that they are a trinity, neither of them is exclusively bound to the actions their names would imply, and instead each acts as a mask of inertia upon the stage that is life. The role Shiva plays in the game of life is that of a juggler who effortlessly balances the opposing forces of creation and destruction, asceticism and procreation, stillness and dancing, order and chaos. There are myths that...

Deities & Demons: Hekate's Horde & Deipnon for the New Moon

Deities & Demons: Hekate's Horde & Deipnon for the New Moon

October 25, 2019 0 Comments

Hekate’s commanding of shadow spirits may enable us to confront our own “shadow selves”. Every individual is a complex emotional being, and we temper ourselves by identifying inner truths through self-awareness and emotional honesty. Perhaps most unpleasant to face, confronting one’s anger in a healthy and unobstructed manner is quite like Hekate’s taming of the restless dead. Once we have been able to reconcile the fear and intimidation we may feel from our “shadow selves” then we can be summarily more capable and powerful...

Hecate: Goddess of the Month, October

Hecate: Goddess of the Month, October

October 03, 2019 0 Comments

Hecate (or Hekate, and pronounced “he-KAH-tay” or “he-KAH-tee”) has many titles, most notably the Torchbearer, Goddess of the Underworld, and the Keeper of the Keys of the Universe. A relationship with her is one that confronts and engages with the darkness that resides in us all, rather than ignore or reject it. Hecate is present in the Under, Middle, and Upper worlds, so her ability to transition between these realms indicates she is a powerful force for change. Hecate is an ancient goddess with a modern tradition. Modern Hekatean Witchcraft emphasizes her role in modernity, and puts less stress on the particularities of rituals and ceremonies so that practitioners may interpret their relationship in a modern, personal way, so that everyone’s practice is at their strongest. As far as sobriquets go, the Goddess of the Underworld is about as cool as they come. Along with her connection to the serpent, her power is connotative of what is popularly considered to be evil and nefarious in mainstream religion, but a relationship with Hecate underscores the necessity of dark with light, life with death...

The fierce and powerful Freyja was the Norse goddess of many dueling aspects! While she was the goddess of love, sexuality, fertility and beauty, she was also a warrior goddess of death, strength, lust, and war itself. Freyja is also viewed as the Goddess of magick, because she was believed to be magick itself!! She was a force of untamed nature and desires. If there was something that Freya wanted, she was above no moral standard to obtain her desires. One of Freya’s most notable correspondences is a

Ma’at / Maat or Mayat is the Egyptian Goddess of Truth, Justice, Harmony and the divine order. Ma’at, wasn’t just the goddess of these concepts, but was the embodiment of them and was seen to be above the concepts of right and wrong because nothing is stronger than truth!

This concept is seriously so crazy because while being one of the most important deities, she had no temples of her own or places of worship. The other Egyptian deities even had to
