Break-Up Work

Break-Up Work is a category of work designed to break-up or split-up a couple, be they married or not, friends, or any type of human relationship.

Break-Up work often employs ingredients that are sour, to sour the relationship, bitter, to cause the couple to hate one another, "hot", to cause heated arguments, sharp objects, to cut off the relationship, to kill the relationship and to bring pain to the relationship, as well as symbolic items such as cat and dog hair to cause them to "fight like cats and dogs". Additionally, traditional items associated with enemy work, such as black candles, graveyard dirt, hot foot powder, and even goofer dust may be used. Quite often break-up work takes the form of bottle work in which a bottle is filled with such items, as well as personal items from the couple, and is buried on the property of the couple, preferably where the couple will step over it.

Break-Up work is most often performed by women and usually to get the wife of a married man out of the way. Occasionally a break-up work may be performed by a third-party simply as a way to get revenge against one of the people in order to destroy their happiness. Break-Up work is also performed in order to destroy the relationship between a boss or employer with a co-worker in order for the worker to get ahead or move-up in the company. Another group of people who perform break-up work are wives with cheating husbands who want to break-up the affair and get rid of the hussies who are trying to steal their men. Another and often over-looked category of people who perform break-up work are mothers who don't agree with their child's choice of a spouse.

Now, of course most of the examples above tend to be slanted toward the negative uses of Break-Up work. Keep in mind that Break-Up work does have good uses, or should I clarify, uses against one's enemies and especially if one has multiple enemies or a group of people causing one problems. Break-Up work can be used to break the group up and to cause them to fight amongst themselves, leaving you alone in the process.

Vinegar

Vinegar is an ingredient used in hoodoo/rootwork, and other forms of occult magic and folk magic.

Vinegar is used for protection, cleansing, and to take off curses. For enemy work, vinegar is used primarily
to sour a person's life or relationships. Vinegar is also frequently used in break-up work.

Four Thieves Vinegar


Four Thieves Vinegar is a potion used in various folk-magic and folk-medicine traditions, especially that of hoodoo/rootwork, for the purpose of personal protection, the prevention of illness, the banishing of troublesome people, and the cursing of one's enemies.

According to legend, there was a band of four thieves who in the middle-ages made a fortune by stealing from the bodies of people who had died from the black death or bubonic plague. When the criminals were arrested they where advised their lives would be spared if they divulged the secret method they used to prevent becoming infected. That secret would become known as four thieves vinegar. Another origin of the concoction is that the name 'four thieves' is a corruption of "forthave's vinegar", which was a popular vinegar remedy of it's time. Despite the actual origin of four thieves vinegar, the use of herbs steeped in vinegar is not new and is among some of the earliest medicines or remedies used by ancient peoples.

Recipes for four thieves vinegar vary from practitioner-to-practitioner, as well as from manufacturer-to-manufacturer. There are also two basic types of recipes for four thieves vinegar. Those recipes are for a concoction that can be consumed and for a concoction that can only be used externally. The concoction that can be consumed contains herbs that are edible while the concoction that cannot be consumed naturally contains herbs that are inedible. A basic recipe for a four thieves vinegar will contain a minimum of four herbs, though occasionally one may find a recipe that only calls for the use of garlic alone. Additionally the type of vinegar called for in most recipes is either apple cider vinegar or red wine vinegar, though normal white vinegar can be used if one prefers.

My personal recipe for Four Thieves Vinegar:

-Apple Cider Vinegar
-Garlic
-Black Pepper
-Red Pepper (Cayenne Pepper)
-Black (Brown) Mustard Seed
-Poppy Seed
-Basil
-Sage
-Lavender or Mint (depending on what I have on hand)
-Pinch of Salt

Take a bottle of vinegar. Remove the label (may have to soak in warm water first). Open the bottle of vinegar and pour up to half of it into a cup which is set to the side. Add the ingredients in whatever amounts one wishes. Top the bottle off with the remaining vinegar in the cup. Close the bottle and set it someplace dark for approximately a month before use. After that time one can strain and re-bottle if one prefers, though I prefer to keep the herbs in the bottle.

A basic guide to using Four Thieves Vinegar can be found below:

-To reportedly prevent becoming sick Four Thieves Vinegar that is concocted to be consumed can be taken by the spoonful each day. One can also gargle with Four Thieves Vinegar, which is said to help prevent throat and mouth infections, as well as help with gum disease. A rag or cloth can also be soaked with the mixture and sniffed to help clear the nasal passages and reportedly prevent sinus infections.

-For person protection add Four Thieves Vinegar to one's bath water. Your enemies will not prevail against you. This would be an example of a white magic spell for protection.

-To banish a troublesome person, take a bottle or container of Four Thieves Vinegar, open it, and throw the liquid on the persons door or else dump it on the person's porch while cursing them and telling them where they should go or what you want them to do, such as; "get the f*ck out of this neighborhood!", "get the f*ck out of town!", or even, 'f*ckin' go to hell!'. This is of course a black magic use for Four Thieves Vinegar.

-To curse an enemy, take a personal item or concern from the victim, such as some hair, nail clippings, a photograph, etc., and place it in a bottle with nine pins, 9 needles, and 9 nails. Add to it graveyard dirt and then top it off with Four Thieves Vinegar. Shake the bottle while cursing the enemy and then bury it on their property, preferably where they will step over it. This would also be an example of a black-magic spell that incorporates Four Thieves Vinegar.

Additionally, one can use Four Thieves Vinegar in any spell that calls for vinegar.

Many occult shops sell what is claimed to be Four Thieves Vinegar but which is nothing but plain white vinegar. If by chance you do stumble upon a location that sells genuine Four Thieves Vinegar make sure to ask the owner or shop help if the mixture is safe for consumption before purchasing.

Today Is The 69th Anniversary Of The Battle Of Los Angeles

Sixty-nine years ago today a strange event took place over California skies that may just be the first time the U.S. military attempted to shoot down a UFO. The event would come to be known as The Battle Of Los Angeles.

Black Salt

Black Salt, a.k.a Witch's Salt, or Drive Away Salt, is a formula used primarily in occult magic and especially the practice of hoodoo/rootwork. Black salt is deployed to remove or repel evil or negativity and in both white magic and black magic spells to banish troublesome people. Black salt is also used in black magic spells to curse one's enemy.

Black salt is composed of salt plus a blackening agent. The blackening agent can be one or more of the following items; black pepper, powdered charcoal, ash, or iron scraping from a pot, pan, or skillet. Many occult shops sell black salt composed of salt that has been dyed with black food coloring and, believe it or not, this is said to work just as well.

A basic guide for the traditional uses of black salt can be found below.

-To rid evil and negativity from one's home, sprinkle black salt on the floor and then sweep it up and out the front door and off the porch toward the street. This would be an example of a white magic spell.

-To prevent a troublesome person from returning to one's home, as soon as they leave throw black salt on the porch or sidewalk and then quickly and vigorously sweep it out to the street while cursing or cussing them. If you are bold you can throw black salt at their back as they walk away. This would be an example of a black magic spell; however such could easily be adapted into a white magic spell by addressing the salt and asking that it remove this person without harming him/her and then not cursing the person. (Salt is a powerful item used in hoodoo/rootwork and will do what you tell it to do. More on salt in a separate blog.)

-To gain revenge on an enemy, sprinkle black salt into a doll baby or voodoo doll containing a personal concern from the enemy, such as a photograph, snip of hair or fingernail clippings. Black salt can be added to black magic mojos or bottle spells which are to be buried on the property of the victim or else hidden inside their home or car. Black salt can also be used to create a potion which is used to curse an enemy. To make this potion, dissolve black salt (the kind that has been dyed with black food coloring) in water. One can use a plastic water bottle or any container with a lid for this. Add to it graveyard dirt, black pepper, and one whole bottle of a black magic oil. Close the lid and shake well while cursing one's enemy. The potion is deployed by dumping it on the enemy's car or porch. These would be examples of black magic uses of black salt.

Mojo


(Pictured left and center is of a mojo with various lucky items surrounding it.)


A mojo, a.k.a mojo bag, jomo, toby, hand, conjure bag, wanga, amulet bag, gris-gris and sometimes but not often called a 'medicine bag', is a small cloth bag containing various items such as roots, herbs, stones, powders, and even animal parts, which is used for specific conditions, such as to draw love, luck, money, protection or to gain revenge on an enemy. The name 'mojo' may originate from the Gullah word 'moco', meaning magic, though some make the claim of it coming from the West African word "mojuba", meaning a sacred or special prayer. The making and deployment of a mojo is a common practice associated with hoodoo/rootwork, but is also associated with other magical traditions of the African Diaspora.

The creation of a mojo, the consecration of a mojo and it's deployment vary from practitioner to practitioner but a good basic guide for the creation, consecration and deployment of a mojo can be found below. This version was taught to me by a Wiccan woman in 1993, and indicates a Wiccan or Neopagan adoption of the making of mojo bags.

-Most modern practitioners use the basic magical color symbolism with regard to the choice of cloth used for the bag. Empty bags can be purchased at occult shops or can be created by the practitioner and often involve squares of cloth that are simply tied up with string to form a bundle. If the specific colored cloth is not available, a mojo can be made with any cloth. Mojos can also be made with leather bags as well.

-With regard to the items placed in the bag, it should be an odd number of items. No less than three items but no more than thirteen items should be used. Use items with the magical reputation of the condition one is making the bag for. For example, roots, herbs, and stones with the magical reputation for protection and to reflect or drive-way evil would be used in a mojo made for protection, while items that are believed to be 'lucky' are used in mojos created to draw luck. Make sure to include as one of the items a personal concern, such as hair or fingernail clippings, of the person for whom the mojo will work for. When the items have been included, close the bag (or bundle it up if it is a square of cloth), and tie it off.


-The next step is to consecrate or charge the bag. The Wiccan woman who taught me this advised to hold the bag in between one's hands in the praying position while meditating and visualizing for the proper outcome. (This is a standard practice called "charging", which is a term used in Wiccan magic for the imbuing of an object with the spell caster's intention.).


-After the mojo has been 'charged' it then must be sealed by dressing it with a magical condition oil proper to the intent of the mojo. For example, one would use 'protection oil' to dress a protection mojo bag. The bag is then carried on the person.


-After the spell has worked and the mojo has outlived it's purpose it can be disposed of by burying it in the ground.


In the years since 1993 I have met many wonderful people (and a few not-so-wonderful ones) who have taught me more tricks for making a mojo bag. Much of the following is more traditional to the practice of hoodoo/rootwork. Note: I have not listed how I make mojos. Instead, I have just listed various tips that I've received over the years. Perhaps in a future blog I may reveal my method of making mojos.


-Mojos can be made on specific days, at specific times, and specific moon phases to draw various energies and astrological influences.


-When adding items to a mojo bag, make sure to speak to each item, addressing it and telling it what you want it to accomplish, such as to draw a new lover, for personal protection, to draw luck or money, etc.


-"Hard" items such as roots, nuts stones, or coins can be dressed with a magical condition oil prior to being placed in the mojo.

-A trick to getting around the rule of no more than thirteen items is to combine items. For example, if one was adding two separate powders to the mojo bag, by mixing them together before adding them to the bag then such item can technically count as "one" item. Another example would be to us a paper with one's name to fold up a coin and snip of hair in order to count as "one" item.


-Before tying up the bag make sure to breathe into it 'to give it life'. This is accomplished by bringing the open mojo bag or loose cloth bundle to the lips so that it covers them. Then one exhales completely into the bag and immediately closes it so that the breath does not escape. One can then inhale once the bag is closed.


-Instead of breathing into the mojo or in addition to breathing one can also spit into the mojo bag. The spitting is believed to activate it. Spitting is employed in hoodoo/rootwork to also activate powders one has thrown or lay down.


-Instead of 'charging' the mojo, one can recite various Psalms or pray over the bag.


-To seal the mojo one can dress it with a magical condition oil, smoke it by passing through incense smoke, or one can pass the bag through a candle flame. If the practitioner prefers, all three ways can be performed.


-A mojo bag should be 'fed' regularly, usually once a week or month. This is to keep the power alive. One feeds a mojo by dressing it with more condition oil, wetting it with whisky, wetting it or spraying it with one's cologne or perfume, and in the case of mojo bags made for gambling spells, having a man's girlfriend/wife/lover pass the bag through her stream of urine. (Note: The urine of a woman is only "lucky" if the woman is in a romantic/sexual relationship with the man. Male urine is not considered lucky and is not used to feed a mojo.)


-Never let another person see or touch a mojo. If another person touches the mojo it is believed to kill it's power.


-Mojos are generally worn on the body or kept in a pocket or purse. Otherwise a mojo may be deployed in the home for peace or protection purposes, or in the case of a drawing a new lover, such can be placed under one's mattress. Mojos made for black magic purposes or 'enemy work' are deployed by burying on the property of the enemy close to where they will walk over it or else hidden in their home or even car.

-Mojos are believed to have life-span of seven years, though many practitioners will remake them every year. This is done by opening the bag, washing the hard items in whiskey and re-oiling them, and replacing any loose herbs or powders with fresh ones. The bag is closed up, consecrated and sealed accordingly.


In the clip below, Muddy Waters sings about his frustration over the woman he desires being immune to his mojo.

Hot Foot Powder

Hot Foot Powder is a name for a strong  banishing formula found in the practice of hoodoo/rootwork. The name 'hot foot' refers both to the ingredients in the powder which are meant to magically burn and bring pain and suffering to the victim who steps on it as well as to the phrase, 'hot foot it out of town', meaning to leave in a hurry.

Recipes for hot foot powder vary from practitioner to practitioner, but a basic recipe for the mixture is made from the following:

- Powdered Red Pepper
- Powdered Black Pepper
- Brimstone (Sulphur) Powder
- Salt (or Talcum Powder or Corn Starch)

The mixture is ground into a fine powder and is deployed by sprinkling in the path of the victim. When the victim steps on the powder it is believed to magically poison them through their feet. People who have been afflicted will experience bad luck, nervous complaints such as mania, agitation, anger, physical restlessness, and a troubled mind, all of which will work together to force the victim from the worker's life. Unfortunately the effects may be permanent. The afflicted may never again find peace in this world.

Although originating as a powder, the hot foot recipe has been adapted into an oil, incense, and even floor wash form which are sold commercially. Let the buyer beware. Some occult shops sell products with the 'hot foot' label that do not contain any genuine ingredients. A good way to judge if such is the case is to smell the product. If it smells "too nice" then it's probably not the 'real deal'.

Hot Foot Powder


Note: Please use caution when using Hot Foot Powder. If a person has done you no wrong then one may wish to try another less-gently method for magically removing them from your life. The effects of Hot Foot powder may be life-long, so please keep that in mind.

Banishing

Banishing, or a Banishment, are works performed to get rid of or remove a specific person, problem, or general negativity in one's life. There are three man types of banishing works.


1.) Banishing evil/negativity and bad habits

This involves magic performed to rid a person or dwelling of evil, negativity, especially if such originates from troublesome spirits or entities. What separates these spells from spells to cleanse or purify a person or dwelling is that these spells have more power or are more forceful in nature, as in to forcible remove or evict an entity that may be causing problems. In effect these types of works can be referred to as exorcism rituals. The intended target of the eviction can often be a negative spirit or entity or may be something more abstract such as an alcohol or cigarette addiction. Such works are also often performed for weight-loss.

2.) Gentle banishing of a troublesome person

These wokrs are performed to remove a troublesome or problematic person from one's life without the use of cruel intentions or the causing of harm to the person. When such works are performed the outcome can actually be a blessing-in-disguise for the person being banished. For example, say a neighbor is causing one trouble to the point where one decides that they cannot have this person be in their life anymore. A gentle banishing work is performed with the result being the person ends up getting a better-paying job requiring them to move out of state. With the use of these gentle banishing works, both parties benefit.

3.) Harsh banishing of a troublesome person

These works are performed to remove a troublesome or problematic person from one's life with the addition of cruel intentions and the disregard for any harm the person may suffer in the process. When such works are performed the outcome tends to be destructive toward the person being banished by using force to create hardships in their life until they leave one alone. Unlike the use of gentle works for banishing, these types of works only benefit the worker to the detriment of the person being banished..

Banishing works are often deployed with the burning of black candles, for both gentle and harsh banishing work as black candles can either be used to curse or to remove evil/negativity, and the use of oils, powders, incense, herbs, and stones. Other methods and procedures may also be used. Commercial products sold for use in banishing works can have multiple names such as; Go Away, Get Away, Drive Away, Drive Away Evil, Move Away, Far And Away, Cast Off Evil, Hot Foot, Run Devil Run, or may simply be labeled 'Banishing'.

Goofer Dust

Goofer Dust is the name of powder used to curse one's enemies in the practice of Hoodoo/Rootwork. Occasionally the term goofer dust is used as a synonym for graveyard dirt but usually graveyard dirt is but one ingredient in a recipe for goofer dust. The name 'goofer' stems from the Kikong word 'Kufwa', meaning "to die" while other people have translated it as "to kill". In effect, Goofer Dust is "magical killing powder". It is perhaps the strongest black magic powder found in the practice of hoodoo/rootwork.

The actual recipe for goofer dust varies from practitioner to practitioner; however a basic recipe for goofer dust will normally contain one or more of the following:

- Graveyard dirt
- Brimstone (Sulpher) Powder
- Red Pepper
- Black Pepper
- Powdered Mullein Herb
- Powdered Toxic or Poisonous Herbs
- Ash
- Salt
- Snake Skin
- Crushed Bugs, Insects, or Snails (Usually poisonous or venomous varieties such as ants, spiders, and wasps. Also may include their homes or nests.)
- Powdered Lizards
- Powdered Bones
- Magnetic Sand

Once concocted the powder is traditionally deployed by sprinkling in the path of the enemy. When the victim steps on the goofer dust it is believed to magically "poison them through their feet". More creative practitioners may find other uses for goofer dust, such as to sprinkle it on the victim's mattress, laundry, or in their shoes. Other sneaky forms of deployment include placing the goofer dust in a mojo bag or bottle which is secretly hidden in the home of the victim or buried on their property, preferably near to where the victim will walk.

Victims who have been successfully cursed with goofer dust are referred to as being "goofered", and sometimes the term goofered is used as a synonym for being cursed. People who have been goofered will begin to experience extreme bad luck, dangerous health complaints, insanity, and even death if the proper magical procedures are not performed to remove the cursed condition.

Though normally deployed in black magic spells for revenge, goofer dust is sometimes used in love spells designed to make a specific person love the spell caster. Such spells also fall under the category of black magic as they interfere with the free will of the intended person. Such spells are designed to produce pain and suffering in the object of desire in order to force them to submit to the spell caster. If by chance the victim does not submit then they may eventually die if the curse/love spell is not eradicated with the proper counter-rituals.

The rituals performed to counter-act goofering include spiritual baths, the burning of candles and incense, and cleansing or "uncrossing" rituals of the afflicted individual and of the home and property. Generally such rituals are often followed with rituals to protect from further attack or to reverse the curse back to the spell caster. (See REVERSING SPELLS)

Goofer dust, like graveyard dirt, is often offered for sale in various occult shops. As with so-called "graveyard dirt", let the buyer beware. Usually what is offered as "goofer dust" appears to be nothing more than dyed and scented talcum powder, or else powdered mullein herb used as a pseudo-substitute. Even shops who claim to sell "the real deal" often adulterate their product with talcum powder or similar powders

Graveyard Dirt

Graveyard Dirt or Graveyard Dust is literally dirt, dust, or soil taken from a grave at a cemetery. Graveyard Dirt is a famous ingredient in many spells of various magical traditions. Although graveyard dirt is more commonly associated in the mind of the public with black magic and curses, in reality graveyard dirt is also an ingredient in various good works, such as for protection, luck in gambling, and even love-drawing.

In order to harvest graveyard dirt certain rituals must be performed. Rituals for the gathering of graveyard dirt vary from practitioner to practitioner but the following is a good basic guide as to how graveyard dirt is gathered.

- For legal reasons do not use any tools to dig the dirt. Also do not carry any containers into the cemetery as well. Ideally one should place any dirt they gather into their pockets directly but some people choose to use a small baggie.

- Items needed include a small baggie (optional), and a small gift to leave behind at the grave. One or more shiny new pennies or dimes, or items the deceased individual enjoyed in life such as a cigarette, a shot of whisky, etc., will usually suffice.

- For good works, dirt taken from the graves of family members, friends, lovers, or people who had a good moral reputation are best. For black magic spells dirt from the graves of "sinners", evil people, criminals and murderers are the most powerful.

- Pray and meditate before going to the graveyard.


- Ideally one should only gather dirt from the grave of one's ancestors.

- Upon reaching the grave one has been led to, knock on the headstone three times and call out to the spirit of the person buried there. Ask them permission to take the dirt from the grave and then wait for the answer. If the spirit answered positively then proceed by bending over and grabbing a fist full of dirt in one hand from the area located over the heart of the deceased. In the other hand place the gift one brought with them at the spot where the dirt was taken. Otherwise the gift can be placed on top of the headstone. Only gather one fistful of dirt per visit.

- Perform a cleansing on one's self.

- Upon returning home one might want to transfer the graveyard dirt to a respectable container, as one should show respect to the dead. A small decorated container should do.



Graveyard dirt can also be purchased in various occult shops; however let the buyer beware. Very few places seem to sell pure graveyard dirt and there is no guarantee the dirt was gathered according to the proper rituals. Usually the dirt sold in these stores has been adulterated by adding talcum powder or similar powders. In some cases powdered mullein herb is sold as a substitute for graveyard dirt. Don't be deceived.

Graveyard dirt is also sometimes referred to as 'goofer dust'. Such term most always refers to a negative or black magic use for the dirt. Traditionally graveyard dirt is but one ingredient in a powerful recipe for 'goofer dust', which is used to magically kill or harm one's enemy.

Picture Of Bow-Nessie Taken?

Is this the Monster of Lake Windermere?

Lucifera

Lucifera is the feminine form of Lucifer, i.e. "Light Bearer", and is the female aspect of Lucifer as believed by certain Luciferians.

Appearance: A woman or goddess-figure holding a torch.

Lore: The title Lucifera originally referred to a goddess holding torches, with the torch being symbolized as spiritual and gnostic knowledge.

The notion of a divine female being given the title of "Lucifera" is ancient. In the past, such goddesses as Artemis/Diana, Hecate, Demeter, Eos/Aurora and Persephone have all been portrayed as carrying torches. For images of such, click HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE.

The title of Lucifera or the portrayal of a goddess with torches almost always signifies a goddess performing the role as guide, lighting the way and protecting human beings. Only rarely does the portrayal signify evil or punishment, such as with the Erinyes (The Furies) who use their torches to burn their victims.

Certain Luciferians hold to an alternative interpretation of Lucifer, mainly the belief that Lucifer is a hermaphroditic being composed of a female-aspect named Lucifera and a male-aspect named Satan. It is this female-aspect of Lucifera that these Luciferians worship or esteem. Hearkening back to the older usage of the title, these Luciferians may even refer to Lucifera with the name of a pagan goddess. The 'Romanized' version of the Egyptian goddess Isis, with her solar attributions, is a popular alternative name used by these Luciferians to refer to Lucifera. Other Luciferians may call Lucifera by the name of Columbia, the goddess-like female personification of the United States of America. For images of Isis and Columbia as Lucifera, click HERE and HERE.

Representations of Lucifera, as the female form of Lucifer, are quite common. One of the most common examples of a portrayal of Lucifera is the Statue of Liberty. The Statue of Liberty reflects Lucifer/Lucifera's role as symbol of goodness, truth, and freedom, as believed by Luciferians.

See also, Luciferianism

Luciferianism

Luciferianism is a religious and a philosophical belief-system involving an alternative interpretation of the Lucifer found in the bible, in comparison to the mainstream interpretation of Lucifer in Christianity. Individuals who hold to these philosophical or religious beliefs are referred to as Luciferians or in some instances as Satanists.

There are 2 main forms of Luciferianism.

1.) Luciferianism as a philosophical belief-system centers around the idea that the Lucifer of the bible is an angel of light that stands for goodness, freedom, and truth. The Luciferians who fall into this category can be divided into three groups;

A.) The Luciferians who believe Lucifer is a completely separate entity from the biblical Satan.

B.) The Luciferians who believe Lucifer is a hermaphroditic being with the male-aspect being Satan and the female-aspect being Lucifera (feminine form of Lucifer).

C.) The Luciferians who believe Lucifer is an archytpal force of nature, found within every human being.

Additionally, both A and B groups tend to hold to views of Lucifer incarnating every astrological age as "the world teacher", by which he raises mankind to a new level of spiritual and social evolution. For these Luciferians, the serpent in the garden of Eden and the Jesus of the Christian religion, as well as most of past world religious leaders or founders are simply previous incarnations of Lucifer. These Luciferians await Lucifer's next incarnation. The C group of Luciferians represent a relatively new perception or interpretation of Lucifer and is more commonly referred to as "Gnostic Luciferianism".

2.) The second form of Luciferianism is Luciferianism as a religion. The defining of these two subgroups of Luciferianism is arbitrary and it should be noted that it may be difficult to place individuals within these categories per statements they have made concerning Lucifer. This second form of Luciferians is also divided into two categories;

A.) The Luciferians who use Luciferianism as a synonym for Satanism, though they may deny that Lucifer is evil.

B.) The Luciferians who practice 'Luciferian Witchcraft'.

What separates these Luciferians from other kinds are the active use of ritual and/or magic while the philosophical Luciferians are seemingly bound to more strictly mental pursuits.

Luciferians may be members of various occult and new-groups. fraternities and secret societies, or may be members of no groups or organizations.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Wishing Everyone A Wonderfully Romantic Valentine's Day!

In honor of the holiday I have found one of my favorite episodes of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, titled Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered. What happens when a love spell goes awry? Hilarity ensues.

Anteros

Anteros is the god of mutual love as well as the avenger of spurned or unrequited love in Greek mythology. Anteros is the son of Aphrodite (Venus) and Ares (Mars) and is the brother of Eros (Cupid).
