Literature
Lucifer Slays Michael
O, wingéd creature, golden hair'd—
of sapphire eye an' pallor fair—
Craven Angel! wake an' rise—
to meet His gaze—God of the Wise!
He, who in His brilliance,
was cast out, for defiance—
Awake! Awake! Thy splendor's matched!
For from the Heavens, ye've been snatched--
Thy brother, long ago betrayed—
by thy shield and by thy blade!
Thou art bound, fiend, hand an' foot—
In rigid chains, hell-fire wrought—
Open thy eyes, an' lift thy head!
Thy Father, Son an' Spirit, dead!
Heaven hath been laid to waste!
Wretch, by blackest villain grace'd!
Thou didst reap what thou didst sow!
Thou once-beloved, once-aglow—
Look now, upon horn an' hoof!
Upon demon, ghost an' ouphe!
Thy conqueror, sword in hand,
hath brought thee to the promise'd land—
an' in the deepest pits of Hell,
Lucifer slayed Michael.

Thirteen Adorations of Lucifer
O, thou strange god, herald of Darkness yet bringer of Light—
I do adore thee—
O Venus, thou Star of Evening, Star of Morning—
I do adore thee.
O, thou Spirit of the Air, thou who doth carry the wicked fires of Hell and Damnation—
I do adore thee, I do adore thee!
O cunning serpent, who art at once the black goat of the Sabbat, the great grim cat who makes his bed in the hearts of rogues and radicals, the most handsome of pea-cocks and Androgyne Divine—
I do adore thee! I do adore thee!
O, thou emerald-crowned, thou who art adorn'd with the finest purples, who hath set his throne above the stars of the Fool-God!
I do adore thee! I do adore thee! I do adore thee!
O thou rebel most holy, thou giver of the gift of Knowledge, thou LIBERATOR!
I do adore thee! I do adore thee! I do adore thee!
O, thou beloved of Witches! Thou master of the Black Arte! Thou hornéd god!
I do adore thee!

Literature
The Fire in my Head
There burns a Fire, in my head--
Kindled by that unseen thread--spun deftly, by the mighty Dead--
An' dyed by their departed red--long-hidden--in the night.
Out from Hell, the spirits fled--
An' gathered they around my bed--yet I felt not whit of dread--
For to such shades I'm wed--alas!--such things I could not write.
It is a crooked path, I tread--an' backward dances have I led--
--the blackest of all books I've read--
I took the wine and spared the bread--
Behold! The Witches' Flight.

Literature
The Oneironaut
I dream of deserts, hot and dry
Of southern winds and endless sky
Of sand and stone--
Of earth and bone--
I dream of deserts, hot and dry.
I dream of meadows, mute and mild
Of weather'd rock and flowers wild
Of tranquil night--
An' pale moonlight--
I dream of meadows, mute and mild.
I dream of forests, dark and green
Where there hides a world unseen
Of shadows long--
Of shriek and song--
I dream of forests, dark and green.
I dream of oceans, strange and deep
Where monsters hide and merfolk sleep
Where pirates roam--
Through fog and foam--
I dream of oceans, strange and deep.
I dream of passion, sweet and red
One heart of love; the other, lead
Delusive glee--
Intimacy--
I dream of passion, sweet and red.
I dream, lo! Still, I dream of him
His voice, his touch, his eyes agleam
Though I would fain--
To love again--
Alas! This I could only dream.

With a Pocket full of Chains.

Hey! I've talked to you before, though you may not remember :paranoid:

We exchanged notes, but dA has SHIT coding for notes, so I kinda lost yours. Anyway, if you'd like, do you recommend any reading for demonology and other such 'dark' craft? I know to stay away from Gardner and his ilk =P but so many websites are full of rubbish :roll:

You're the witchiest person on this site that I know of, so I trust your opinion. 

I dunno if you want some sort of compensation for asking for your labor, but if you want something maybe we can work a thing out :0

Oh hi! I remember you :)

That's a really big compliment :0 Thank you so much!

I'll certainly help you out.

I don't charge for this stuff. Bad mojo, charging for teaching. Unethical.

Also: if any of this is just a repeat from our notes, forgive me! I have a terrible memory.

To continue:

Firstly I wouldn't worry about finding exclusively "dark" materials.

Witchcraft done right is witchcraft done darkly.

I'm sure you know to avoid that New Age fluff-shit, but if an author is trying too hard to be evil and spooky he's just as bad as the White Light Brigade.

Michael Ford is a prime example of this.

I recommend Mastering Witchcraft by Paul Huson. You can find a free PDF via Google.

First real "how-to" witch manual ever published.

A bit dated(1970)and the rituals are a tad too formal for my tastes, but he's straight-up Luciferian and I feel he really captures the essential spirit of Witchcraft, if that makes sense.

Besides that, I STRONGLY recommend the following booklist, compiled by Sarah Anne Lawless:

sarahannelawless.com/2010/12/0…

Her whole blog is actually pretty great, so be sure to check it out, too. I learned a LOT from her in high school. I still refer to her work sometimes when I need some extra insight.

Also...I never thought I'd say this, but holy shit those kids on Tumblr ASTOUND me with how advanced they are with damn near anything witch-related. Like holy shit.

Of course there's some trash to wade through--mostly some social justice crap--but they bloody got the basics down pat and then some.

You can find anything from basic 101 material to upper-level intermediate work there, and the diversity, creativity and overall culture of the community is staggering.

I'd at least finish Mastering Witchcraft before signing up, though. It's a bitch to navigate without a solid base.

Other than that, english.grimoar.cz has over two thousand free occult PDFs to download. It's excellent.

I also strongly recommend signing up for an account on traditionalwitch.net and also Wizard Forums. Both are top-notch, no-bullshit occult communities.

Interacting with other practitioners has got to be one of the most effective and underrated ways of learning magic that I know of.

Hope this all helps!

If you need anything else, just ask :)

Yeah, I was really depressed and didn't wanna fucking deal with the internet for a while. I felt bad about deleting when things started looking up again and came back.

as it turns out I may have bipolar disorder. Yay!

Thanks for caring. :hug:

Personally, I strongly believe I was rather hesitant at first to become directly involved in witchcraft, the occult, and Luciferianism because of the inherent fear of black magick (and witchcraft in general) caused by a heavily Catholic up-bringing, however, as I grew more familiar with demonology (including the "Necromancer's Manual") and selected grimoires, I began to slowly but surely overcome that fear, and continue studying.

Despite the controversy (Catholic family), it's heavily benefited my life, as I feel less depressed and "weak" than I've ever been in my entire life.
