I've been reading a lot about Isis. Shes way cool. Has a nurturing side. Seems like shes the quintessential Goddess. Have started to bring her into my temple. She adds a balance that was missing. I usually have a sigil of Astaroth in my temple. I've read that Astaroth comes from Isis. Have you heard of this? In the Goetia, Astaroth is a male riding a dragon? How did you meet the people in your group? On line? Up here near Seattle it's mostly Wiccans. Nice people, but not into the occult, least of all some of the darker aspects. Thanks for your knowledge. Don't have any one in person to discuss occult matters.
Thanks for the reply. Never thought about Isis. She seems more all encompassing. Will read more about her. It's cool that you are initiated. I'm kind of new at this and and don't know anyone personally into occult. Good to have people more advanced to learn from. I like Michael Ford and E.A. Koetting alot.
Thanks for the add. I see you work with Lilith. I want to add a female presence to my temple, and like what I read about Lilith. But, I'm wondering if she is hostile to men? Being a man, would she be pissed off to be evoked into my temple? If so, do you know of any female deities that are male friendly? Peace!
Just letting you know, Lucifer is not nor was He ever Satan. You can thank the Church of Lies for that one. I am not a Satanist but I do believe Satan got an undeserved reputation. If it is true that He rebelled because he did not want to bow down before humans, I cannot blame him. The Christian faith says we are one step below the angels so why would you bow down to an inferior creature?
I have problems believing that He is pure evil, Nature and the Universe do not do absolutes. Even the most malign entity may have compassion for his/her own brethren. Just because they are not so wild about us does not make them absolutely evil. Of course, we would battle them if they are trying to destroy us and perhaps they see us as evil.
