We were first established in 2002 and incorporated on September 2, 2015 as a nonprofit organization that practices eclectic Goetic High Magick, following the principles and philosophies of Luciferianism and Alchemy. We work directly with astral entities as well as utilize the powers of herbology, sympathetic magick, and other forms of “lower” Earth Magick. We are dedicated to continued learning about our world and the magick within it as well as sharing this knowledge with those who respectfully seek to learn it. While our members are adept in spiritual communications of all kinds, we tailor their process of ascent to best suit their needs and personal energies.
We offer spiritual assistance to many but will only initiate a few. If you have a thirst for knowledge both mundane and metaphysical, have the ability to control your own energy as well as the energy around you, wish to better train and focus your talents, have a desire to be a healthy, contributing member of a community, and can tolerate mature and logical discussions of magick that require critical thinking, than you may enjoy learning with us.
Upon initiation all members are given logins to our website, free access to coven courses, invitations to private meetings, and first priority to updates and announcements. We offer public courses, youth outreach, and community organizing. Anyone who enjoys our public classes or who wishes to join the Order may contact us personally with their inquiry.
“The history of religion and spirituality is the history of humanity achieving self awareness, attempting to explain nature, and ultimately gain power of their environment including people. Spiritual beliefs extend back to earliest humankind. The first hominids were hunter gatherers. These hominids included homosapians as well as homo neanderthalis, both of which practiced ritualistic beliefs such as burial of the dead with their possessions from life. In most parts of the world, men would hunt and women would gather berries and other plants for food. Food gathering would only take up about 4-6 hours per day of work, and the rest of the time was for time spent was traveling or together telling stories about the hunt, tribal lore and histories, which became the basis for all legends and even religion. One of the defining characteristics of humans has been our ability to notice patterns. Patterns of weather, animals, the environment. We were limited in our understanding of these things, and explained nature to the best of our abilities supernaturally.
“Many other species of animals buried the dead, including elephants. Other species have language. But humans have a collective consciousness of understanding. We can pass knowledge onto you, which can be passed onto the next generation which compounds on itself. Human development eventually outpaced evolution, and we became the dominant species on this planet.
“Human development was slow for thousands of years compared to modern progression – nomadic tribes looking to survive and traveling for food. We survived through the ice age that devastated many species, and almost ended us – down to numbers as low as 10,000 humans. Post ice age, it was a period of food abundance in world history, with enough plants and animals for all to eat. Entire generations of humans settled in fertile areas and spent hundreds of years enjoying the ease of life – a literal garden of eden existence. This is why we see agriculture appear in multiple places throughout the world simultaneously. With so many things, humankind lost its foraging ways and had to begin farming for food rather than hunting. Hunting and gathering couldn’t sustain the large communities that arose, so it became a necessity. This led to farming communities, which led to leadership roles, which led to people not farming to focus on other pursuits, including religion. Religion revolved around farming, because that was the basis of society. The year focused on the harvest, holidays like Samhain, the time for planting, Ostara, and others. Even though cultures could be separated by thousands of miles, they all tended to have celebrations and events around the necessity of farming.
Most spiritual beliefs allowed for the existence of multiple gods, but most cities and communities focused on a single patron god or goddess. For example, Athena was goddess of Athens despite the acknowledgement of other gods and goddesses existing. Some exemptions were Zoroastrianism, which had dual gods of opposing forces, similar to God and Satan, and Judaism. Judaism acknowledged the existence of other popular gods like Baal, but still maintained loyalty to the Jewish god, Yahweh. In the earliest literature still intact, Baal, El and Asherah were other gods in the pantheon with Yahweh, but eventually Yahweh became known as a jealous god and demanded singular reverence in exchange for protection of Israel.
“Even the Jewish religion believed in multiple gods, they just choose to worship one. Even Jews at the time of Christ would believe that others gods existed, but they were not to be worshipped by them. It was not until the establishment of Christianity by Paul would monotheism begin to take root. Christianity was an obscure doomsday cult for hundreds of years, that posed a threat to the Roman Empire due to its refusal to acknowledge Roman gods. The were often targets for persecution and would be blamed for arson, death and other problems in Roman culture. It was not until Constantine and his conversion to Christianity that Christianity became a mainstream religion with strong political backing that allowed free worship. The constant persecution of Christians by Romans and polytheists for hundreds of years solidified Christian monotheism, to the point that they could not even separate Jesus and Yahweh as separate gods, and combined them into one. Monotheism eventually led to intolerance of other religions, as they could not just be welcomed into the pantheon like polytheistic systems. Even modern Hinduism accepts Jesus as an aspect of Ganesh, but it could never be accepted the other way.
“By the tenth century, Paganism had been eliminated from everywhere in Europe. Christianity had completely taken hold. The Christian Church embraced many pagan systems and holidays for their own, as it was easier to transition people to the new belief by using familiar holidays and turning local gods and goddesses in to saints which could also be worshipped the same as god. But there is zero evidence that paganism existed past the tenth century in Europe, as these now Christian beliefs fully took hold.
“That did not mean that Christians did not fear influence from pagans and witches. In the 13th century, Christian priests from Germany wrote the Malleus Maleficarum, and surmised that all instances of disease, death, impotence and crop failure could be attributed to witchcraft and that it was possible to identify witches. In the book, it explained that the devil always preferred to work through witches despite that he was perfectly capable of performing the acts himself. In sowing discord through Christian society by recruiting witches, he was able to double the amount of evil and wrongdoing he performed.
“According to the Malleus Maleficarum, the devil also almost always worked through women. Women were responsible for the downfall of man in the Garden of Eden, a woman cut Samson’s hair to cause him to lose his strength, Lot’s daughters engaging in adultery and Lot’s wife disobeying God’s direct word. Women were always the cause of problems in society and of man, so it made sense that women engaged with the devil and witchcraft.
“There were always witch trials from the 12th century onwards, but most occurred in the 15th and 16th century. This placed it firmly within the context of the European Renaissance. Specifically, it occurred during and after the Church Reformation. The identity of the witch was almost always a woman without a man. A spinster or a widow were the most common women labeled as witches, because these women were seen as having no place in society and most susceptible to the devil’s influence due to not having a man. Prior to the 15th century, the witch was always identified as a solo practitioner. But as the reformation passed much of the literature about witches focused on women coming to together serving as sexual servants to Lucifer in large group orgies, and they could be identified as a mole on the body. The truth behind all the witch trials is that none of these people tried and murdered as witches were witches. Folk lore and home remedies does not a witch make, it was a reaction to sex, politics and the church reformation that led to the rise of witch trials. The vast majority of witch trials that did not involve women were also accused of treason against the king or lord, which meant that it was an accusation of convenience and anyone who possibly defended the heretic was most likely a heretic and witch like the accused.
“Modern Paganism came into it’s own when witchcraft was legalized in the U.K. in 1951. There was interest in pagan beliefs for time prior, mostly due to academics like Margaret Murray in the 1920s and 1930s who declared that the vast majority of people in Europe belonged to witch cult and never really believed in Christianity at all. The people behind these theories were often feminist and anti-christian, attempting to produce female empowerment through religion that was not present in Christianity. Most academics of the era and witch hunts dismissed her assertions as there was zero reliable evidence to produce these conclusions – but nevertheless some authors cling to her theories as proof of a witches heritage where none exists. But these theories and texts such as the Key of Solomon led to the rise of modern witches such as Gerald Gardner – whose Golden Dawn forms the basis for modern Wiccan practices and beliefs. Despite what Wiccans will claim, Wicca as a mainstream religion was only created in the 1950s and is only one limited practice of witchcraft. Similarly, Anton LeVay developed the concept of modern Satanism in San Francisco shortly thereafter based on the concept of the self as god – but is often a philosophy rather than a spiritual practice. Ultimately, most Satanic belief belief systems are atheistic rather than theistic. Lucifer, demons, angels and entities are all real and hold knowledge, and the knowledge is there for the taking to obtain ascent to godhood.
“We identify as Luciferians – but who is Lucifer? Most religions never had a entity such as Lucifer as identified by Christianity and Islam. Roman philosopher Senenca considered evil a “lack of knowledge.” Romans and Greeks had “wicked” gods, but the vast majority were positive and the pantheon was so immense that a god or goddess existed for every moment of the day.Lucifer existed as a minor deity before Christianity and Judaism associated in Ancient Greece as Phosphorus and the planet Venus. In Rome, he was God of the Morning Star (Venus) and was mentioned in the Odyssey and Hesiod’s Theogeny under the name eosphorus (ie Phosphorus). In Roman religion, Lucifer literally existed as the aspect of Venus in the morning, but not in the evening. However, Lucifer is the brightest star in the morning aside from the Sun and was astrologically important and recognized due to this fact.
Biblically, according to versions of Ezekial 28:14 Lucifer was an archangel referred to as the angel of worship. Above all other angels, Lucifer understood god and was created to live in the presence of god as a most perfect being. He was one of the few beings in existence that could remain in the presence of god, and was created above all others besides god himself. It is strange that due to his understanding of god, that he would lead rebellion against god. Revelations 12: 7-9 described Lucifer leading angels against god and being cast out of heaven. Due to Lucifer understanding the nature of God and the universe on a level equal to god itself, Luciferianism is a gnostic religion – meaning that knowledge of utmost importance.
“Think of the story of the fall from the garden of eden. God forbids man and woman to eat from the tree of knowledge, but the snake tempts them with knowledge. By embracing knowledge, they fall away from god because god wants to keep man ignorant. Lucifer wants to freely give the knowledge of the universe – one must simply bite the fruit. Lucifer is the liberator of the world from those that enslave it. Even the name Lucifer – light bringer – shows that Lucifer is the bringer of knowledge for the world. Some gnostic Luciferian religions see god the creator as flawed, and creator of a flawed world, and Lucifer as the savior due to bringing knowledge to mankind – much like Prometheus in Greek literature.
“Ezekiel 28:13-15 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
13 You were in Eden, the garden of God…On the day that you were created they were prepared.
14 With an anointed cherub as guardian I placed you; you were on the holy mountain of God; you walked among the stones of fire.
15 You were blameless in your ways from the day that you were created, until iniquity was found in you.”
-Maleficis Artibus Inserviebat 1:4:29-33
