Rites of Lucifer

Lucifer is the archetype of the Adversary, initiator and guide on the Path of the Nightside. He is the fallen angel of Christian legends, the Devil of witches' Sabbats, one of primal Draconian Gods, Demon Prince of the Air, and Infernal Emperor of old grimoires. The purpose of this book is to delve into his initiatory role on the Draconian Path and in Atlantean magic through chosen masks and manifestations which Lucifer has used over the ages to reveal his presence to mankind, bestowing his blessings on Initiates and scourging the ignorant. Essays and rituals included here explore both his bright and dark aspects, the face of the Light Bearer and the horned mask of the Devil.

The Way of the Serpent

Draconian Path is an initiatory spiritual adventure, a beautiful quest for awakening divine powers in the Initiate through transformative process of self-knowledge and self-integration. It embraces symbolism and energies of those magical systems, religious beliefs, mythologies, folk-tales, and literature, which view the Dragon or the Serpent as the Divine Initiator, the Adversary, or simply the Archetype of Primal Terror. It takes the Initiate to the darkest roots of consciousness in order to awaken the power of the Dragon, the primal potential of godhood, within one's soul.

This book contains glimpses of Draconian magic and philosophy, as well as many related themes inspired by this ancient tradition. It brings together essays, rituals and poetry from eleven contributors, remarkable authors and active practitioners of the Left Hand Path. The contents of this collection include Setian rituals, Qlipothic meditations, articles devoted to mythological dragons and serpents, and many other texts inspired by the Draconian Current.

Sol Tenebrarum: The Occult Study of Melancholy by Asenath Mason

“I can barely conceive of a type of beauty in which there is no melancholy,“ wrote Charles Baudelaire in the nineteenth century, referring to the phenomenon that had fascinated philosophers, artists, musicians, poets and writers for centuries. In the modern world melancholy is commonly confused with sorrow or identified with depression, but in the history of the Western culture it was always seen as present both in depressive states and excesses of manic rapture. For over two thousand years melancholy was a part of humoural theory which assumed that the body and the mind were mystically connected and these connections explained all character traits, dispositions, tastes, appearances, emotional states, mental disorders, and physiological dysfunctions.

Traditionally viewed as a wide range of disorders caused by the imbalance of life energies, throughout centuries melancholy acquired a complex esoteric and philosophical meaning. It became the disease of the soul, the triumph of the inner darkness over the godly light of reason, the source of genius and inspired madness, the synonym for lethargy and spleen, the deadly sin, the Saturnian principle of ecstasy and suffering, the dark element in the human nature, and finally, the universal condition of all humanity.

This book is concentrated around the traditional view of melancholy and its interpretations in ancient and modern history of the Western esotericism. It attempts to translate ancient concepts into the contemporary context and rediscovers melancholy as the central part of occult philosophy, representing the most critical stages of spiritual experience. Alchemy, Dionysian mysteries, Bacchic rites of ecstasy, lycanthropy, acedia, spiritual journeys into the underworld, inspired insanity, Dark Night of the Soul, Saturnian contemplation, qlipothic initiations, and the mystical meaning of the Black Sun – these are only a few themes from this fascinating book.
