Recently we have been getting a lot of rain in my area. Everytime I go outside the rain gets much lighter or stops, but when I am under cover it gets much heavier. I feel as though this could be a message or a way to gety attention, I have always been drawn to water and rain itself. Lately I have been spending a lot of time meditating on my patron/ness god/goddess. Do you know any deities connected to rain/water? I would greatly appreciate it!

Off the top of my head, Poseidon and Amphitrite come to mind. They are the King and Queen of the sea in Hellenic Polytheism.

If you’re into magic/witchcraft some areas I recommend you look into include water witchcraft, sea witchcraft, and storm witchcraft. sea-sorceress, pisceswitch, and castingshells are my go-tos for these areas.

Altoid tin witches travel kit.

I always like to keep certain magical supplies on hand when I’m on the go, but I tend to put a vile in this pocket and a crystal in that pocket and I forget what is where.

Altoid tins make great organizers for when you’re out and about. I’ve also seen many people make travel altars with these for when they are away from home or if they are still in the broom closet.

This kit can be anything that you find is most important to have based in what you do. I’m a stickler for cleansing and protecting my surroundings. So my kit includes:

- Sea Salt
- Dragons Blood Salt
- Rosemary
- Smokey Quartz Crystal
- A wand (one that I made myself using fox bone, clear quartz point, and some tigers eye and fire agate beads)
- A Tea Light and some matches
- A striker for the matches glued to the lid
- Mini bowl made from epoxy clay
- Home made mini runes also made from epoxy clay.

What I love most about this tiny tin is that it can fit into a bag as small as a clutch or even your pocket and you’ll have everything you need.

So have fun and be creative with your kit.

Can I ask why you guys deleted some of your Luciferian content? Was there a lot of controversy about it or something?

What do luceferians believe in?

1. If our content has been deleted it usually means that the moderator who posted it removed it themselves for whatever reason. They may have left PSG or they may have decided that the post was poorly written and the topic deserved better coverage. Additionally, during the creation of SYL a lot of posts were taken from here and placed upon that blog for people to look at in a resource blog format. This transfer was under the direction of SYL’s owner and admin.

2. The main post that we still seem to have was written by our moderator WrathfulCalm/LavenderWrath. We have this information remaining from it:

Blogs to Check Out

Books to Check Out

  • The Bible
  • Luciferian Goetia by Michael Ford
  • Ars Goetia by Mathers (For interesting side info)
  • Book of Enoch
  • Angels: An Endangered Species by Malcom Godwin (about angels)
  • The Lucifer Principle by Howard Bloom (science book, interesting read)
  • Convivium by Andrew E. Maugham.

Luciferianism is different for everyone, as is demonstrated by the vast majority of people in the tumblr community. I am a Theistic Luciferian, meaning I believe in the existence of Lucifer and have chosen to follow him as my god. This may be different for you, and it is a part of the path to figure out what you believe for yourself. Below are a few more things which my own personal path includes:

A large component of what I do in my faith is apotheosis. Some liken this to becoming your own god, and others believe it simply means being the best version of yourself that you can be. In essence, a form of self-realization. I spend a lot of time battling with my own mind and trying to work through personal problems, so they won’t bother me anymore and so I can become, what I consider, a better person.

And also I consider a large part of my path to be reading, researching, and asking difficult questions. This can take some time and is often very uncomfortable, but I find it has many rewards. I’ve found I rather like figuring out the truth for myself

My advice for beginning with anything like this is to research as much as you can, read all you can, but also follow your heart. Respect the religions, and ensure what you’re practicing is right for you.
