Goetic Tarot

          Demons, as we have come to understand them today, are a direct and inevitable byproduct of Monotheism, which is not to say that some spiritual forces are not more dangerous than others, but rather that the idea of a spirit being completely “evil” only occurs in a cosmology where absolute moral standards apply. Once one being, or even a class of beings, is elevated to a state of absolute moral authority, all others must be forced into the role of either the supporters of this hegemony or its enemies, thereby propping up not just an absolute good, but a world of absolute evil as well. These worlds, thankfully, do not exist.

          The point I’m trying to make is that most of the demons recognized in the West today were once worshiped as gods in pre-Christian cultures. That is not to say that those gods who became the churches most powerful demons weren’t placed in the adversary’s camp for good reasons, since many of these were among the fiercest opponents of the conformist cult that sought to engulf the entire world in its singular spiritual vision. What I’m saying is that the antagonism of these spirits to the common man has been greatly exaggerated, and the primary danger one faces by consorting with them is not from any of them per say, but from the antagonism they have garnered to themselves from the system. If you are brave enough to reject the lie of one way, one truth, and one light for all peoples, and can accept the consequences that directly follow from such nonconformity, then you have little to fear, and much to gain, from the demonic realm itself.

          In the magical world there are no accidents, nothing is random, and what we see as coincidence is simply the manifestations of our own power from behind the veil of human ignorance. To tap into the power of synchronicity, I am never without a deck of playing cards, and I use them to great magical effect, not only for divination and general illumination, but the invocation and evocation of spirits as well.

          What follows is a brief outline of the network of demonic contacts which I’ve woven into my deck of playing cards. Here I’ve included only the briefest description of each demon, but, most importantly, I’ve provided you with mantras one may use to call each of them forth and converse with them. Elsewhere I will write more about the sort of dramaturgical meditation one must master in order to overcome the tremendous barriers which hold such spirits back from fully manifesting in our world. Until then, via con diablos.
