Prayer unto the Queen of Succubi

Prayer Unto the Queen of Succubi
by Andrew Chumbly

I bless the Waters of Desire
I drink the Fountain White.
I call thee Mother Lilith
Harlot of the Night.

Mine are the Blossoms of Rousing
To Bewitch the Moon-Feast round;
Unto me thy Daughters
Ye Nymphs of Paradise ground.

I bless the Waters of Desire
I drink the Fountain White.
I call thee Mother Lilith
Harlot of the Night.

By the Mystery of the Bright Moon
And the Vessel of Quickening Fire
Thy Power is Made Flesh.

Some interesting info from Grimm's Teutonic Mythology...

ok-pulled out Grimm's Teutonic Mythology and found some interesting references to the Eternal Hunter IN Germany...He is called Hackelberend-and one story does indeed say he hunted on the Sabbath-Sunday and was cursed-the other says that one his deathbed he refused to hear about heaven from the priest and replied "The Lord may keep his heaven, so long he leaves me my hunting". thus being cursed for all eternity to hunt... pags 922-923

"Miracle (wundern) is the salutary, magic (zaubern) the hurtful or unlawful, use of supernatural powers: miracle in divine, magic devilish; not till the gods were degraded and despised was magic imputed to them. Beings midway betwixt them and man, sage, giants, artful elves and dwarfs practice magic; only their skill seems more innate, stationary, not an acquired act. Man can heal or poison, by directing natural forces to good or to evil; sometimes he even shares the gift of miracle, but when he pushes the beneficient exercise of his powers to the supernatural point, he learns to conjure. Miracle is wrought by honest means, magic by unlawful; the one is geheuer (blessed, wholesome) the other ungeheuer. At the same time the origin of all conjuring must be traced directly to the most sacred callings, which contained in themselves all the wisdom of heatherndom, via. religious worship and the art of song. Sacrificing and singing came to mean conjuring; the priest and the poet, confidants of the gods and participants of divine inspiration, stand next-door to the fortune-teller and magician. Is is so with all nations, and was so with our ancestors: by exception, not of contrast. The ancient Germans knew magic and magicians: on this foundation first , do all the later fancies rest. And the belief was necessarily strengthened and complicated when, upon the introduction of christianity, all heathern notions and practices were declared to be deceit and sinful delusion: the old gods fell back and changed into devils, and all that pertained to their worship into devilish jugglery..."

        Holda and Pertcha are purely pagan half-goddesses, round whom gathers the magic ring-


"After the conversion, sorcery links itself with the discredited gods both foreign and 

domestic: not at once with the Devil yet to take root among the people. The Withes

 are of the retinue of former goddesses, who, hurled from their thrones, transformed from

 gracious adored beings into malign and dreaded ones, roam restless by night, and instead

 of their once stately progresses can only maintain stolen forbidden conferences with their 

adherents. Even when the bulk of the people was won over to the new doctrine, indivdual

 men would for a time remain true to the old faith, and perform their heathern rites in

 secert: but soon these pagan practices would cease for as real facts, and abide in the

 memory and shaping fancy of mankind, and the more enduringly if they were connected

 with popular feasts and the permitted or prohibited usage about healings and poisonings. 

Performance, tradition, fancy were mixt up together, and no single century can possibly

 have been without the notion of illicit idolatrous magic, even if we are unable to specify the

 shape in which it entertained it." pg 054-1055 Teutonic Mythology.

What to my mind completely establishes the milder explaination of witche's doings, which

 leaves the Devil out of the reckoning, is the collection of conjuring spells collected. Taken

 mostly from witch-trails of the last few centuries, when the link between witch and devil 

was a long-established thing to the popular mind, they refer not to devilish doing at all, but

 everywhere to elvish or even christian. Some of them seem to be of high antuquity, or

 heathen origins, and to have been handed down through a long course of oral traditions. 

Their power to hurt or heal is founded on faith in elves and sprites, whose place is 

afterwards filled with angels and holy names."

"of all the names (for the Devil) confessed by witches, none is commoner than Flederwisch-

which means the end limb of a gooze wing, used for the purpose of dusting, aptly denoting

 the rapid whisking to and fro."

I adjure thee by the Father, by the Son and by the Holy Ghost, even by the Holy Trinity, by that God Whom thou canst not resist, under Whose empire I will compel thee; I conjure thee by God the Father, by God the Son., by God the Holy Ghost., by the Mother of Jesus Christ, Holy Mother and Perpetual Virgin, by her sacred heart, by hey blessed milk, which the Son of the Father sucked, by her most holy body and soul, by all the parts and members of this Virgin, by all the sufferings,
afflictions, labours, agonies which she endured during the whole course of her life, by all the sighs she uttered, by all the holy tears which she shed whilst her dear Son wept before the time of His dolorous passion and on the tree of the Cross, by all the sacred holy things which are offered and done, and also by all others, as in heaven so on earth, in honour of our Saviour Jesus Christ, and of the Blessed Mary, His Mother, by whatsoever is celestial, by the Church Militant, in honour of the Virgin and of all the Saints. In like manner, I conjure thee by the Holy Trinity, by all other mysteries, by the sign of the Cross, by the most precious blood and water which flowed from the side of Jesus Christ, by the sweat which issued from His whole body, when He said in the Garden of Olives; My Father, if it be possible, let this chalice Pass from me. I conjure thee by His death and Passion, by His burial and glorious resurrection, by His ascension, by the coming of the Holy Ghost. I adjure thee, furthermore, by the crown of thorns which was set upon His head, by the blood which flowed from His feet and hands, by the nails with which He was nailed to the tree of the Cross, by the holy tears which He shed, by all which He suffered willingly through great love of us: by the lungs, the heart, the hair, the inward Parts, and all the members of our Saviour Jesus Christ. I conjure thee by the judgment of the living and the dead, by the Gospel words of our Saviour Jesus Christ, by His preachings, by His sayings, by His miracles, by the child in swaddling-clothes, by the crying child, borne by the mother in her most pure and virginal womb; by the glorious intercession of the Virgin Mother of our Saviour Jesus Christ; by all which is of God and of His Most Holy Mother, as in heaven so on earth. I conjure thee by the holy Angels and Archangels, by all the blessed orders of Spirits, by the holy patriarchs and Prophets, by all the holy martyrs and confessors, by all the

holy virgins and innocent widows, by all the saints of God, both men and women. I conjure thee by the head of St. John the Baptist, by the milk of St. Catherine, and by all the Saints.

ok-for me this morning it seems I have a Need to start putting the peices of my Cosmology puzzle in place...
Of course-for me at least- Lilith is the WitchMother-and the 3 faced angel - Samael/Melek Taus/Azrael is the WitchFather...
as listed earlier-the teachings of the 'Watchers' is what brought Magick to us-As Above So Below...
so I believe that it is via our work with the Angelick entities that we are taught the Mysteries...and that Lilith-was the First Initiated by Samael-thus the Initiatrix-who was the Mother of Cain/Qayin, fathered by Adam/Nachash-the first Adam/Adam Kadmeon the ideal man...then it was Lilith who initiated Cain-who then became the Wanderer-after he committed the first sacrifice...
Lilith removed herself from Eden-the Garden, to take up residence in the realm of the Fae-"in Tir-fa-Thonn, the bright land that is in the Astral Sea, until the Moon Mother who rules the rise and fall of Astral tides called her to her temple that is with Aurd-na-Rea, the High-place of the Moon..."
Where she is the Mother of the Fae...
Thus is the passage of the WitchBlood-

"Remember-We are Spirits
We fell from the Stars
Everything is Magick
Everything is a Sacred Spirit"...

It is from this that I move to the Hexen-
...and the 4 Daemon Kings work in conjuction with the WitchMother and the 3 faced angel-the WitchFather-as laid out in the Grimoire of St. Cypriano-the Wizard...

for the Goddess of the Hexen comes to me on the Wings of the Geese-the Wild Hunt-old Mother Holle-who walks the Ghost Roads and brings the Winter with her-to the procession - of the Unbaptised-the procession of her Sister-Perchten-from the creatures of the Wildwood-who come out of the Wilderness to roam the streets/the Ghost Roads around which the Village/City has remind us all that we all stand on Hallowed ground-and that the paths we cross are the paths of the Spirits-the Genii Loci-the Spirits of Place-and the Ancestors-the Mighty Dead-who never truly are far from our hearts, or our Blood...and that we are tied to one another by the Red Cord of Blood and Bone-by the White Cord of the Spirit-and the Silver Cord of Tir-fa-Thoon-the silver cord of the Astral.

and the Eternal Hunter-'der ewige jäger'-the Red Lord of the Hunt-who is the provider-for when the fruits of the Lord of the Greenwood are gone-it is by the blood spilled by the Hunter that the 'Tribe' survives...

...and it is this Blood that connects it all-the Blood which is poured over the Crystal Skull of the N'Ganga-Spirit Vessel-home to that which comes and that which goes-following the Path of the Silver Wheel as it turns...the Blood of the Sacrificed Kings-shed For the Land...

As we follow the Weave that the 3 Sisters thread-bringing us together and pulling us apart...those daugthers of Old Mama Fate...

"In Life and Death, we are the Stars woven
into the fabric of Wyrd, wide She casts 
her net to catch the 'fallen' to gather
them up Home again"...

~Robin the Dart~

For it is by the 7 stars/planets
by the 4 Daemon Kings
by the 3-faced Angel
and the 1 true Initriatrix

that we pass the Flaming Sword of Azrael
following the Mysteries down
the Crooked Path Below
and then aside the Serpent
we asend again...Above
From ClayBorn to StarBorn...

Partial List of Grigori and Their Sources
• Armaros (also Amaros) in Enoch I taught men the resolving of enchantments.
• Araqiel (also Arakiel, Araqael, Araciel, Arqael, Sarquael, Arkiel, Arkas) in Enoch I taught humans the signs of the earth. However, in the Sibylline Oracles, Araqiel is referred to not as a fallen angel, or Grigori, but as one of the 5 angels who lead the souls of men to judgement, the other 4 being Ramiel, Uriel, Samiel, and Aziel.
• Azazel in I Enoch taught men to make knives, swords, shields, and how to devise ornaments and cosmetics.
• Baraqel (Baraqiel) taught men astrology (from Enoch I).
• Chazaqiel taught men the signs of the clouds (meteorology) in Enoch I.
• Kokabiel (also Kakabel, Kochbiel, Kokbiel, Kabaiel, and Kochab), in The Book of the Angel Raziel, is a high-ranking, holy angel but, in general apocryphal lore and also in Enoch I, he is a fallen Grigori, resident of nether realms, and commands 365,000 surrogate spirits to do his bidding. Among other duties, he instructs his fellows in astrology.
• Penemue in I Enoch 69.8 "taught mankind the art of writing with ink and paper," and taught "the children of men the bitter and the sweet and the secrets of wisdom."
• Sariel (also Suriel, Zerachiel, and Sarakiel) is one of the 7 archangels originally listed in the Enoch books as Saraqel. Apocryphally, he is the governor of the zodiacal sign of Aries. In the Enoch books, he also teaches of the courses of the moon (at one time regarded as forbidden knowledge).
• Samyaza (also Shemyazaz, Shamazya, Semiaza, Shemhazi, Semyaza and Amezyarak) is one of the leaders of the fall from heaven and is referred to in the Dead Sea Scrolls and Vocabulaire de l' Angelologie.
• Shamsiel, once a guardian of Eden, in the Zohar, served as one of the 2 chief aides to the Archangel Uriel (the other aide being Hasdiel) when Uriel bore his standard into battle, and is the head of 365 legions of angels and also crowns prayers, accompanying them to the 5th heaven. He is referred to in Jubilees as one of the Grigori. In I Enoch he is a fallen angel who teaches the signs of the sun.

"O, what a marvel it appeared to me,

When I beheld three faces on his head!"


Friday, September 27, 2013

of particular interest to me was the section 

on the 'Angel of Death' specifically the 

association between Azrael (Azrail) and

Samael here-as consort or 'husband' to 


"Azrail (the name of the angel who removes

the soul from the dying body) is married

, has children, sends emissaries (diseases, old

age), etc. This also holds true for Samael in

East Europe who is often identified with the 

Angel of Death himself. He is married to


as well as associating the Angel of Death 


the eyes in the Peacock's tail

"He is full of eyes (nothing escapes him)," 

and thus to the Peacock Angel Melek 

Taus...which equate with the 3 faces of

the Angelick entity as WitchFather-Azrael-

Samael-Melek Taus...

"Look in the deep brown pool of An-na-Rea...This is the land that some call the Summer Land of the Astral plane. Long ago it was called the Garden of Eden and Adam dwelt there with Lilith for his first wife. But because progress is slow in perfect happiness Adam was filled with divine discontent. And so, when in deep sleep, he dreamed of Eve as the imperfection that should complete his own perfection. And when his dream exteriorized through intense desire he sought with her the golden wisdom that the sacred green all-wise snake would give him through failure. And so the two wandered from that golden land 'on the verge of the azure sea'. For Adam was divorced from his first inner and subjective love when he sought for the objective as Eve.

Lilith remained in Tir-fa-Thonn, the bright land that is in the Astral Sea, until the Moon Mother who rules the rise and fall of Astral tides called her to her temple that is with Aurd-na-Rea, the High-place of the Moon...

All of these details can be clearly seen in the green and faintly orange lights that cast purple shadows of the sphere of Yesod where rules the Lord of the Moon who is the King of the Land of Life. He who is the first born of the Great Mother...She who is the Ruler of the non-human peoples of the Etheric and Astral planes of consciousness.

Before you stand two pillars. Beyond these pillars only faintly to be seen is a temple and before it a throne-that of the Great Moon Mother who sits thereon.
Stand now before the Pillars of Whispered Truth, and seek to pass between them. But you cannot. You now see the Sword of Life that flames red as blood between the Pillars of Life and Death, the Jachin and Boaz of the Temple of Solomon. 

Hear the right hand pillar whisper: "Moy Mell is barred to you without Eve." 

Hear the left hand pillar whisper also: "Moy Mell is barred to you without Lilith." 

...and then the blood-red sword whispers: "If you would pass while living, here is the Key to the Door that is barred by me, for I am the Sword of Azrael. Come again as Adam bringing your Eve and your Lilith."

Eve is the Moon. She is the woman as the man of the earth-sphere know her.
Lilith is woman as the Lords of the Moon-sphere know her.

The moon-sphere is positive and the earth-sphere is negative and both are contained wth the etheric of that purposive Entity which is called the Great Earth Mother, or the Great World Mother.

  • "God created two Adams, and not one: the first (Gen. 1:26) he "blessed" but did not ensoul with "the breath of life"; the second (Gen. 2:7) he created, but this time with a soul, because the first was not fit to "till the soil" of Eden -- which is to say, to bring the Kingdom of Heaven into fruition. The first is called "beasts of the field" (Gen. 1:24), while the second is called, "Adam", or Man, as described in the passage:

    "Yahweh God said, 'It is not good for MAN to be alone. I will make a helpmate for him.' So from the soil Yahweh God fashioned all the wild beasts . . . These he brought to the man . . . But the man did not find a suitable helpmate from among them." (Gen. 2:18)
    About this passage and its direct implication that God brought all the "wild beasts" to Adam for him to choose a helpmate from among them, the Zohar says:

    "Alas for the stupidity and blindness of men who do not perceive the mysteries of the Torah and do not know that by 'the beasts of the field' are designated the unlearned [first creation] . . . The 'beasts of the field' were like [soul-less] animals among men." (Zohar 1:128a-b)

    In other words, he was their leader, the first "man" created in Genesis 1:26 who was "fruitful and multiplied" with his female counterpart ("Lilith"), thus creating the "beasts of the field", or the "unlearned" and "soulless" mankind referred to in the Zohar. Moreover, the Zohar states, this Serpent Nachash (who, Rashi brings down, walked upright "like a man"; until he was "cursed"; by God to "crawl on [his] belly and eat dust" in Genesis 3:14), this Nachash was "the ideal form of . . . the Satan" (Zohar 1:35b). Thus, Nachash was to the "first" creation what Adam was to the "second"; -- a prototype of a specific species -- the significant difference between them being, as I pointed out at the beginning of this lecture, that the second Adam received a "living soul", but Nachash (the first Adam) did not. 

    from A KABBALISTIC MIDRASH ON GENESIS by Reb Yakov Leib HaKohain

  • "Cain, coming from the [left-hand] side of the

    angel of death [Azrael] should kill his 

    brother. (Zohar 1:54a-54b)

    The Reason I posted this-is the layout of the altar-and the sigils. The Spirit Bottles, or wooden cylinders-more accurately, witht he petition papers folded inside, and then the sigils FROM the bottles-drawn on the groun within the altar-ritual space-found this fascinating, and want to use the concept in my own Spirit Bottle work, and the 4 Daemon Kings...we shall see...we shall see...

    Hexen healings with Hexes and Candle work

    The above picture is one that has been around for some time now-I have seen many versions of it. It associates parts of the body to the Zodiac. It is via this image that I do the majority of my healing work. I work with the 'client' to see what is ailing them, then I find the associated Zodiacal energy, and via that-the Element and Planet, utilizing these three aspects, I can create a Hex, utilizing Both the Hexagram, the planetary Kamea, and the Elemental energies, utilizing all/or part of these colors in the coloring of the Hex, as well as the color of the Candle. Then I work specifically with these energies, utilizing as well the Angelick energies associated with each...calling upon these aspects-with usages of the Psalms...These combinations have been extremely successful in my working with clients and attempts to assist in healing techinques

    Praying to Saints and Folk Magic: San Cipriano di Antiochia

    Cipriano was a professional magician or mago in Antioch, Pisidia, who orginally was a native of Carthage. Cipriano mastered the art of magic and became known as a great sorcerer. It was said he could produce rain and thunder and call forth spirits from their graves. He sold many love-philtres and other potions, charms, and incantations. He practiced a strict diet of plain food, including acorns, and no bread. In his travels, Cipriano had aquired several esoteric manuscripts and having compiled spells and esoteric knowledge from diverse sources. He also composed his own book(s) so that others might also study these things.A young libertine and womanizer, named Adelaide, hired Cipriano help him obtain the affections of a particularly beautiful young woman who had rejected Adelaide and his offer of marriage. Cipriano plied his arts to no avail to induce the girl to marry his client. He observed that the girl, known as Giustina, thwarted his arts--through prayers and the sign of the cross.
    Awed by the strength of the faith of Santa Giustina (Saint Justina) and inspired by the power of her God, Cipriano was converted to Christianity and baptised by Anthimus, the Bishop of Antioch. He burned his magic books. San Cipriano became a priest and became Santa Giustina's brother in Christ. Eventually, San Cipriano became the Bishop of Antioch. Santa Giustina (Saint Justina) consecrated her virginity to God, and became the leader of a convent of nuns.
    San Cipriano di Antiochia was martyred on September 26 in 304 in Nicomedia, during the time of the Roman emperor Diocletian. His relics are in the Vatican Basilica and Saint John Lateran, in Rome, Italy.
    San Cipriano di Antiochia's feast day is September 26. Santa Giustina (Saint Justina) was martyred on the same date. After being tortured, both saints were beheaded on the bank of the river Gallus. Christian sailors secretly collected their bodies and transported them to Rome, where the remains were orginally entombed on the estate of a noble lady named Rufina. Much later, San Cipriano di Antiochia's relics were moved to their present locations.
    However, an unorthodox legend claims that not all of San Cipriano's books were destroyed. He had taught portions of his art to some students and copies of the book(s) are still circulating today. There are apprently several different copies of the "Ciprianillo" or "Cyprianus" written in Portuguese, Spanish, and Scandinavian--and apparently in Italian, too--all claiming to be the genuine Book of St. Cyprian of Antioch. Even the founder of Thesophy, Madame Helena Blavatsky wrote about "St. Cyprian Of Antioch."
    There is another unorthodox legend which stated that while St. Cipriano did genuinely embrace Christianity, and the worship of the most powerful God, he never entirely renounced sorcery, which he secretly continued to practice alongside of his Christian faith for the benefit and protection of other Christians.
    According to Christian tradition, St. Cyprian of Antioch was allegedly the author of some of the exorcism prayers contained in the Priest's Prayer Book.
    San Cipriano di Antiochia (St. Cyprian of Antioch) is unofficially known as the patron saint for those who have practiced the magic arts or have been victimized by the magic arts. Thus, he has achieved the unique position as the patron saint of apostates, magicians, curanderos, magos, root doctors, sorcerers, spirit-workers, mystics, spiritualists, and occultists. (Note : While the Catholic church does officially recogonize St. Cyprian of Antioch as a saint and a repentant magician, it does NOT recognize him as providing patronage to any of the above practioners.)
    Official or not, here is a prayer petitioning aid from San Cipriano di Antiochia in his role as a former powerful magician, turned protective saint.
    San Cipriano di Antiochia, who by Divine Grace was converted to the faith of our Lord Gesù Cristo [Jesus Christ]; you who possessed the highest secrets of magic, build now a refuge for me against my enemies and their evil deeds. For the merit that you obtained before God, Creator of heaven and earth, cancel out evil spells, products of hate, the spells that hardened hearts have cast or will come cast to cast against my person and against my home. With the permission of God Onnipotente answer my prayer and come to my assistance, for the blood of our Lord Gesù Cristo [Jesus Christ]. Amen.
    St. Cyprian of Antioch, the repentant magician, is sometimes confused with St. Cyprian of Carthage. St. Cyprian of Carthage was a bishop of Carthage, not Antioch. St. Cyprian of Carthage was involved in the great argument over whether apostates, that is Christians fell away from Christ (aka "lapsi"), should be readmitted to the Catholic Church; Cyprian believed they should, but under stringent conditions of earnest repentance. St. Cyprian of Carthage is the Catholic patron saint of Algeria and North Africa. St. Cyprian of Carthage was martyed by beheading on September 14, 258 in Carthage, North Africa. His feast day is September 16.St. Cyprian of Antioch is also sometimes confused with St. Cyprian the Athlete, who was known in northern Italy. As a young man in Greece, Cyprian had achieved fame as an athlete. He won the laurel crown at Olympus as a wrestler, and became a coach and trainer. Around the age of forty, Cyprian was converted to Christianity. In 398, St. Cyprian the Athlete founded a religious order which eventually moved its location to a monastery in Tuscany, Italy. Eventually this order of monks, founded by St. Cyprian the Athlete, became known as the "Strenuati" or the "Little Musclemen of God." The rules of the Order of St. Cyprian were derived largely from the training program their founder had used as a wrestler and a coach. According to Cyprian, physical excercise was valuable in distracting the minds of young men from worldly thoughts. St. Cyprian the Athlete also advocated wholesome plain food and bathing to purify body and soul.
    Those who wish to petition San Cipriano di Antiochia's help can burn a purple candle on a Saturday to request protection from womanizers, liars, and cheaters. He helps homeless people, too. Occult shops and botanicas sell "San Cipriano Oil" for annointing candles. Some practitioners blend their own "San Cipriano Oil" mixing cinnamon powder (Cinnamomum zeylanicum), galangal root powder (Alpinia galanga), orris root powder (Iris germanica), with a few drops of cedar oil, cypress oil, and myrrh oil into a base oil, such as castor oil or olive oil.
    "San Cipriano Oil" is also sometimes used to reconcile someone with her or his fiancee by rubbing the oil on a Happy Couple Candle, depicting the pair dressed in wedding clothes. However, the saints, Cyprian and Justina, ought to be petitioned with the specific intention of a forth-coming honorable and loving Christian marriage.
    Occult shops and botanicas also sell "San Cipriano Bath Crystals" for spiritual cleansings to wash away negative influences and negative attitudes and purify body and soul. (I couldn't find a list of ingredients for the bath crystals. Although I'm fairly certain the ingredients are somewhat different than for the "San Cipriano Oil.")
    Anyone desiring the protection or patronage of San Cipriano di Antiochia (St. Cyprian of Antioch), and who is a "servo" or "serva" of the God Onnipotente, ought to aquire a prayer card with the saint's image and set it on a purple cloth with a glass of fresh water, white candle, and a crucifix.
    For nine evenings in a row, the petitioner will light the candle and recite his or her daily prayers, including nine Our Fathers, and a prayer to San Cipriano--adding: "San Cipriano di Antiochia, grant me yor protection and liberate me from any danger. I ask in the name of Gesù Cristo [Jesus Christ] that you bless this water which I place before you. Empower it with wisdom and knowledge, provide for sleep, and my memory. Amen."
    The petitioner extinguishes candle when he or she retires each of the nine nights, and re-lights the candle again in the evening.
    In the morning, the petitioner takes three sips from the glass of water in honor of the Trinity, and pours out the rest of the water. He or she refills the glass with fresh water each night.
    To secure support from friendly spirits and empower prayer rituals, devotees petition San Cipriano di Antiochia by annointing a red candle with his oil and reciting an appropriate prayer. Some botanicas and candle shops sell nine inch San Cipriano figure candles which are formed into the saint's image. Others sell novena candles with red or purple wax which have San Cipriano's likeness pictured on the glass jar.
    To conquer fortune and bring liberation from evils, a devotee of San Cipriano di Antiochia should gather together a whole head of garlic, erba buona [spearmint?], parsely, rock salt, and grains of incence. He should place all items inside a white cloth bag. He then must travel to seven different churches and dip the white bag and its contents in seven different fonts of holy water--each time saying, "Liberami dai miei nemici, che mi vogliono male." This white bag ought to be kept with the saint's prayer card, ideally on a home altar.
    There are those who say San Cipriano di Antiochia is best petitioned on a Saturday.
    San Cipriano di Antiochia (St. Cyprian of Antioch) as a former sorcerer was be believed especially effectious in routing evil spirits. Below is are two magico-religious "prayers" in English and Italian attributed to him.
    Prayer of St. Cyprian for preserving against evil spiritsOh mighty father! Oh mother the most tender of mothers! Oh admirable specimen of maternal tenderness! Oh child, flower children! O form of all forms! Soul, spirit, harmony of all things. Been preserved from all the evil spirits that besiege us continuously without our knowing. Amen.
    Orazione di San Cipriano per preservarsi dagli spirit maligni
    Oh padre potentissimo! Oh madre la più tenera delle madri! Oh esemplare ammirabile della materna tenerezza! Oh figlio, fiore dei figli! Oh forma di tutte le forme! Anima, spirito, armonia di tutte le cose. Conservateci, proteggeteci, guidateci, liberateci da tutti gli spiriti maligni che ci assediano proteggeteci, guidateci, liberateci continuamente senza che noi lo sappiamo. Amen.
    Prayer of St. Cyprian of Antioch
    As a servant of God and His creature, evil spirit loose from what it has bound. In the name of the Divine Creator, that I love with all my heart, soul, senses, and I promise to adore eternally grateful for what benefits the loving father bestowed without measure on me, I order you to separate the evil spirit from the body at once tormented, so may worthily receive the sprinkling of holy water that the rain which poured over God, saying, In the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit who lives and reigns forever, for the virtues of superior spirits Adonai, Elohim, Jehovah, whose presence and power to invoke the act. Amen.
    Orazione di San Cipriano di Antiochia
    Come servo di Dio e creatura sua, sciolgo dallo spirito maligno quanto esso tiene legato. Nel nome del Divino Creatore, che amo con tutto il cuore, l'anima, i sensi e prometto di adorare eternamente, grato dei benefici che qual padre amoroso mi elargisce senza misura, ti ordino spirito del male di separarti all'istante da questo corpo tormentato, acciò possa degnamente ricevere le aspersioni dell'acqua benedetta, che gli verso sopra quale pioggia divina, dicendo: Nel nome del Padre, del Figlio, dello Spirito Santo che vive e regna eternamente; per le virtù degli spiriti superiori Adonai, Eloim, Ieovam la cui presenza e potere invoco in questo atto. Amen.
    San Cipriano is credited with having provided a charm against la jettatura or malocchio.
    San Cipriano di Antiochia's charm against la jettaturaCarry the words from the Gospel of St. John, "In principium erat Verbum," written on virgin parchment with a gander-feather quill pen and magical ink.
    Sortilegio contro la jettatura
    Portare appeso al collo con un cordoncino di seta rossa l'evangelo di S.Giovanni, che incomincia: " In principium erat Verbum ", scritto su pergamena vergine con la penna e l'inchiostro magico e custodito entro il cannello di una grossa penna d'oca maschio.
    Indeed "Rue's Kitchen" which is an excellent website of Benedicaria (the Craft of Blessing) and Stregonria (Italian folk magic), has a very long prayer to "remove the evil eye" or "per eliminare il malocchio" in Italian.Finally, this is a written Latin charm associated with St. Cyprian.

    A Ritual for making St. Cyprian your Patron

    Exu & the Quimbanda of Night and Fire
    ~Nicholaj de Mattos Frisvold~

     This procedure involved a nine day dedication for installing the saint. Obtain an image of him, be it a figuring or picture. You should also have at your disposal red and black cord, two white candles and one black together with St. Cyprian oil that must have been prepared beforehand. The working must be done at midnight every day, starting on a Friday at the waxing moon, ensuring that the full moon is overseeing the completion of the work.

    You will use as a nightly prayer the following:

    Most Holy St. Cyprian
    I beseech you as my Patron
    May you work upon me and keep me steady
    May you lend me your powers
    As I take you on as teacher, tutor, and Tata'
    Bless my house and my life
    As you close up the minds and mouth of my enemies
    Make my eyes double in vision
    As my adversaries will be doubly blind
    Great One, Blessed One
    Most Holy St. Cyprian
    I beseech you as my Patron
    I beg and pray
    Heed my call

    While the prayer is said, anoint a one foot length of the cords (both red and black) with the oil and tie it to the effigy or picture with three knots. On the ninth night you will make sure that the image is reflected in the full moon and with prayers bathe the image or picture in oil and red wine adding the last strand of cord. Then place leaves of Acacia and Laurel between the cords.

    Watch carefully during this period. If parts of cat, toad, snake or bat come to you in some way, these need to be placed in pouches of black cloth and tied to the effigy or picture with black cord. These can also be added over time as the relationship matures.

    This being done St. Cyprian is given water, bread, black beans and red wine as you burn incense of frankincense and myrrh before him.

    St. Cyprian Oil

    • Olive Oil
    • Wormwood (Artemisia Absinthium)
    • Dog's Mercury (Mercurialis Perennis)
    • Pennyroyal (Mentha Pulgium)
    • A pinch of bone dust
    • A pinch of brimstone (sulphur)
    • A pinch of goat horn filings
    • A pinch of copper filings
    • Pine or Cedar resin

    In addition you need to remove the Book of Revelations from the bible, draw his ponto on each page, leave a black candle on it and wait until it has burned down. You will them burn the pages and add to the oil.

    Once made, this oil should rest with the image for seven days with a seven-day candle prior to use, or with Exu Meia Noite.
