Sandra’s seen a leprechaun,
Eddie touched a troll,
Laurie danced with witches once,
Charlie found some goblins gold.
Donald heard a mermaid sing,
Susy spied an elf,
But all the magic I have known
I’ve had to make myself.
– Shel Silverstein, Where The Sidewalk Ends
Part of the 2022 Advent of Lucifer
Men love to define witches. To box them in, to make them known, and thereby rob them of their power. To cast light on the workers of unseen will. Men do this because they are afraid; there is nothing to fear from a witch as long as one honors her wisdom and respects her boundaries. Men are afraid because they are incapable of doing this. The ego of Adam that refuses to see an equal, that balks like an animal at dark places that have been mastered. Places where he has no mastery.
We know our witches by their will and their ways – and while witches and witchcraft know and own and impose no gender, we recognize the dark feminine history of craft, and approach it with humility. To be a witch is to work unseen, to steward strange things. To keep secrets, unlock mysteries, and live transcendentally with the unseen forces of the world.
A witch is beholden to no one, least of all a Luciferian witch. To try too hard to define a witch is folly, but Pam Grossman does a very good job in her book, What Is A Witch?:
We are the ones who make things, and make things happen. We are the ones who imagine. Image mages. Symbol spinsters. We who are fluent in lunar language. We who answer to the ancestors. We who are overcome by furred spirits and feathered forces. We who take pleasure in flight: on brooms, in bedrooms, riding backwards on goats through all weather and wilderness. We who love in the half-light. Bearer of daggers, and keys for great unlockings. Or, if you’d rather, for the safekeeping of secrets deep and diamond. I’ve got gateways and grottos and gardens that need guarding. I leave a path for you to follow in the dirt.
Charging the Sigil
The Witch inspires us to find that inner magick, embracing the power that we have to manifest our dreams into reality. Much like Lilith at the dawn of humanity, following her own vision of how the world should be. We envision a world much like hers, unbounded freedom, beauty and meaning, and we need only reach out to bring this magick into our lives. We have the power to create, transform, and destroy by our will alone. Humanity is spiritual by nature and awakening to the power deep in our very souls shows us how strong we really are as creators of our own destiny. The Witch encourages your own magick, however that may present.
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 will be done, our visions manifest.”
The Witch asks that we seek the magickal moments today. Slow down and see the beauty that surrounds you. Take the time today to practice your magick. Simply visualizing what you seek can help bring you closer to manifesting your dreams and desires. Participating in this ritual is also an opportunity to practice your magick, as we are doing spellwork that builds upon itself each day. You can also design your own spell to bring your dreams to reality that can be about anything you desire, so long as you create it with a passionate vision. We create the world we seek with our magick.

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!
