I’ll be covering the Greek goddess Athena in this article; She was invented and worshipped by Greeks for a number of things, including warfare.
Athena is Saturnian (13° in Aquarius- creativity) and covers multiple aspects in terms of practical workings. So she can be worked with for pretty much everything, but it depends on what is asked from Her, obviously. She excels though at making one (more) alert and “sharp”, sturdier mentally as well as physically to a certain extent.
Her appearance is that of a women dressed in the armor worn in those times, with cloth near her legs and so on.
I’ll be discussing the spirit named Oriens from several grimoires, but most well known from the Goetia as “King who rules over the East”..
Oriens is a fallen angel (Martian, 1° in Scorpio) & He rules over a good portion of the Qliphoth Samael (dark side of Mars). He used to belong to the Seraphim Order. Appearance is a scaly demon with normal/ black flames and reddish-orange wings. Oriens has higher rank than Adrammalech, despite the latter being dubbed a ruler (only from a pagan perspective). See here for more information on Him and the video.
I’ll be covering the angel mentioned in the GKoS, Iachadiel; His name is on the 5th pentacle of the Moon, with the description “Its Angel Iachadiel serveth unto destruction and loss, as well as unto the destruction of enemies. Thou mayest also call upon him by Abdon and Dalé against all Phantoms of the night, and to summon the souls of the departed from Hades“.
Iachadiel is Lunar (19° in Cancer- Dilettante) and favors, as His description states, destruction and loss; destroying enemies and undoing events & situations is His “thing”.
He can be approached for general Lunar affairs, but is reluctant in general about these. His appearance is that of a generic angel dressed in white robe etc. Aside from the aforementioned, He can aid one in focusing one’s mind and mentality, and improve self confidence and mental alertness.
I’ll be covering the greek God Ares today, or Aries; He is known as the god of war to the greeks.
Ares is of course Martian (15° in aries- headstrong) and is therefore suited for things associated with Mars; battle, war, physical strength, tenacity and so on. Practical examples are gaining courage, physical fortitude. I must, however, note that Ares is an unstable companion emotionally, and reacts by impulse. He is prone to change His mind and behave erratically. This should come to no surprise based on His profile. He is more primal, and can behave like a wild animal, untamed, in that aspect.
Aside from the above, Ares can also have you see through the intentions of others and thwart those plans, a specialty of Him. He can be friendly despite His character in dealings. Ares appears as a roman soldier with shield and spear, reddish and golden.
I’ll be covering the Mesopotamian god Marduk in this volume; He was the patron god of the city of Babylon.
Marduk is Martian (15° in Scorpio- unknown), and if one is to read his history and background, and so on it would become visible right away since He was worshipped for warbased matters primarily. What Marduk has to offer, aside from offense & defense, to the general person is progress within his or her own life, covering nearly all aspects; the goal must be clear though. He appears as a warrior with shield & spear.
I’ll be covering the Egyptian God Seth today; He was known by the egyptians as God of the desert, storms, disorder, violence, and foreigners.
Seth is solar in nature (10° in Leo- persistence) and is a powerful one thus. He is an excellent business partner for the abovementioned affairs, as well as all matters in general. I do need to point out however that Seth is not the type that knows order as (again) mentioned before; So don’t expect Him to go to work neatly for you when engaging with Him, in terms of results. Regarding appearance it’s the typical man with the head of a jackal or a canine-like animal. Seth does have a gruff voice, but that is to be expected of His nature. I have no experience in dealing with Set, other than superficially. So that’s it.
The norse God Baldr was a brother of Thor, and was the god of joy & the summer, for one. I’ll be doing Him today.
Baldr is Martian (11° in Aries- changeable) and thusly “good” for all martian affairs, and that’s His strong suit. Aside from that, He also deals well with money & fertility matters so He really is a lot like Thor in that regard. In Norse mythology, His death also brings about the end or Ragnarok, as it’s called.
The description “In addition to being loved by all gods and more physical beings, he was so handsome, generous, and good that he gave off light simply by the purity of his character” denotes His personality. His appearance is that of a blonde man in norse clothing, but He can easily change his demeanor based on the operator, which He did with me.
Baldr is basically the norse version of Lucifer, as in being the “lightbringer”.
I’ll be covering the Norse god Thor here, after He visited me last night; Him and after a few seconds, Odin and Loki too. Thor is in short known as one that deals with offense, defense & fertility. As stated on Wiki “In Norse mythology, Thor is a hammer-wielding god associated with thunder, lightning, storms, oak trees, strength, the protection of mankind, and also hallowing and fertility”.
It comes to no surprise, thusly, that Thor is martian (Aries, 24°- Wanton) and also deals with financial matters (Venus in Taurus, 0°- demanding). Thor told me that I could also keep Him in mind for work if it be necessary. I remember my patron telling me in the past that the Norse pantheon does have potential and that He brought me to Yggdrasil, where we did meet Thor, but He was chased away by Him after trying to attack us. This was a good while ago, so more than enough things have changed. Nothing else to say other that the aforementioned; lastly, He looks as depicted: a bearded dwarvish man wearing old norse warrior gear.
Aah, Azazel, the scapegoat as I know Him; whenever I hear His name, I think of the scapegoat or EA Koetting (lol); But in all seriousness, I shall be talking about the fallen angel Azazel here.
I have never directly dealt with Him, but I have worked with a few spirits that fall under Him, all of which are infernals. Those two are Froghlatasch & Salasash.
He does remind me of L. Rofocale in terms of looks, appearing as a dark, demonic, bulky- looking creature with horns sometimes and other times without. Aside from just now, I have seen him once or twice when summoning his aforementioned subjects. I remember that after a ritual a while back with one of them, that He told me “I have to go, my master Azazel is calling me” and there Azazel was. Koetting’s story on how He adopted Azazel as a patron is nice too, makes for a good horror or sci-fi story in his Book of Azazel.
Now let me get to it; Azazel is martian (Aries, 24°- wanton) and has quite some power to Him, but working with Him will bring good fortune at the cost of some other misfortune. Typical infernal for me, since a good deal of them I know work this way. Nevertheless, He’s not one to be underestimated. Works aggressively, but that’s almost needless to say because of the martian-ness.
