The conservative has but little to fear from the man whose reason is the servant of his passions, but let him beware of him in whom reason has become the greatest and most terrible of the passions. These are the wreckers of outworn empires and civilisations, doubters, disintegrators, deicides . . .
— J. B. S. Haldane, Daedalus; or, Science and the Future
Part of the 2022 Advent of Lucifer
Pride without Humility is mere Arrogance, a Luciferian sin. Arrogance is sinful because it is delusional, and delusion is incompatible with enlightenment and awareness.
Few things instill humility and dispel delusion like the mere fact of looking up at the night sky. Our earliest ancestors were fascinated by the stars; during the day the vainglorious Sun allows you to see only itself, but at night Mother Moon allows us to see beyond the veil that there is a whole universe out there, that we are not the center of the solar system, the galaxy, or of anything.
The stars have ever been our allies – the first canvas onto which we projected stories that would keep innumerable generations safe, and impart to them The Ways. Observing the stars first gave us mastery over the seas. Our relationship to the stars is vast and humbling.
Astronomers use the stars to tell us stories about how the universe works. Astrologers use the stars to tell us stories about ourselves. The stars themselves are fascinating, but it is what they tell us about our existence that is the most incredible thing of all: In all of the observable universe, there is but one unique thing; one thing that we have never observed twice. One thing capable of making the observation that it truly stands alone. Life.
What else could divinity possibly be? If there were something so special that it only happened once in a million million stars, that’s about as special as it gets, in astronomical terms. There are two planets just within our solar system where diamonds rain from the sky, and yet we have never observed the advent of life.
We are truly singular, the universe observing itself. We are a miracle. A wonder. We are divine beings, if ever there were such a thing. Just try not to let it go to your head.
You are very, very, very small, after all.
Charging the Sigil
The Sidereal contemplates our place amongst the stars. In all the universe, with many vast galaxies, we reside on a humble world. The stars gave birth to us, surrendering the elements we needed to become who we are today. This life we have may seem small and insignificant when you think of the universe, but it’s what we have. We’re here to enjoy this time on Earth, and we can’t lose sight of the beauty that surrounds us. We, like the stars, must burn ever brighter, illuminating the dark that surrounds us.
As we devote our time this month to honoring Lucifer, charging our sigil encourages a deeper connection. If this is your first time charging a symbol like this, you can think of it like a moodboard – this sigil represents us as a community and religion. What does this sigil mean to you? What can it represent? Take the time to focus and reflect, meditate on what each of our concepts mean to you and how they can apply to our lives.
For our energy workers, you may charge our sigil by visualizing a bright white light surrounding it. Use breath work to guide this energy into the sigil, knowing that it grows in strength as you do so. You can also focus our themed concepts into the sigil using meditation and our affirmations to program this energy. This will serve to strengthen our sigil for later use in our ritual.
The following incantation may be used as part of your sigil charging, or used as an affirmation:
“Amongst the stars, we burn ever brighter.”
Take the time today to contemplate our universe. It’s a very humbling task, almost incomprehensible at times. We exist in this world for a mere second compared to the rest of the universe. How do you intend to make the best use of your time on this planet?

Make Your Own
We encourage you to make your own oracle card for each of our themed days, so that come the end of our Advent, you will have your own Luciferian oracle deck. These cards may be used to give you insight on what you may need to work with in the future.
We recommend using blank playing cards if available, but any kind of art or canvas cards, even lined notecards can be used. Make your drawing or symbol (it doesn’t have to be amazing, only meaningful to you) on one side and on the other write down any key phrases or words or concepts that resonate with the image to you.
If you choose to share your result, which we would love to see, you may use the hashtags #luciferiandominion and #adventoflucifer so that we can find them! If you choose to make your oracle deck part of your #Inktober or #Drawloween events, please feel free to use those hashtags and include them in relevant spaces!
Happy creating during this blessed Advent!
