Advent of Lucifer Day 24: Sanctuary

Home is where the heart is.

Pliny the Elder


Part of the 2022 Advent of Lucifer

With the caveat that no harm is done to people or ecology, we believe that everyone is entitled to sovereign space to keep their ways and provide for themselves as best they are able. Of course, no such entitlement exists under capitalism, where people are farmed like livestock and must “earn” their right to shelter through wealth generation, an intentional product of land enclosure.

Be as that may, we believe that sacred space should be established in every kind of living arrangement that nourishes the soul. Human beings need periods of peace and quiet, and your home should provide that. A small altar can be perfect for displaying treasured objects, photos of deceased or special people, or any object d’art that speaks to your soul, even if you don’t have a spiritual practice to speak of.

Frankly, much of American society revolves around the rights of each other and the state to arbitrarily intrude on peace and quiet and the sanctity of home. This is one of the first non-negotiable rights that should be reasserted when possible and maintained by any means necessary.

Part of our project is to live communally, and this includes ensuring peace and tranquility. Poor people are often forced into densely packed and entirely anti-social living conditions, a consistent feature of which is the perpetual denial of peace.

We reject this wholly and vehemently, and seek to provide sanctuary to all who seek it, and to support everyone in establishing sanctuary of their own.

Charging the Sigil

Sanctuary inspires us to seek comfort and peace in our lives. We are constantly being bombarded with the stresses of modern society, leaving us overwhelmed, stressed, depressed and even anxious. We must find ways to create our own Sanctuary, for ourselves, our loved ones and our community. Our quest to build our own safe spaces will take time, but we can start in small ways. Sanctuary reminds us that we are deserving of a happy, peaceful life. We give refuge to those who are in need, and remove all those who disturb our peace. 

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:

“Thy sacred refuge is safe and protected.”

Daily Devotion

Sanctuary inspires us to build our own spaces – whether an altar, or dedicated place just for you. Take the time to cleanse your space, dedicate it with what purpose you have in mind, and then make use of it. Either meditate or journal about what Sanctuary means to you. We must dedicate time to ourselves for our own sanity, and having our own Sanctuary to do so allows us the opportunity to find safe refuge. We have very few spaces of our own that we can practice our devotion to Lucifer, so make your own and use this space for your daily devotions. Spending even a few minutes a day in our own Sanctuary can help us to bring more peace of mind into our lives.

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!
