These are Goetic sigils. Not to be used lightly. They are used often for demon summoning within Goetic belief systems. They are also used on amulets to “empower” the wearer with the powers and/or protection of said demon.
It is NOT something I practice. I have read multiple books on the subject, but it is not a part of my belief system. I am posting this for reference purposes only.
Strap in mammals, I need to correct some stupidities about “summoning” major demons. I’ll lay out a proper procedure in a few easy steps. This isn’t for minor infernals, but so-called “princes of Hell”, as it were. I’ll focus on the Goetic demons.
Step One: Acquire a copy of Ars Goetia (you can get a free PDF online)
Step Two: Record names, sigils, and descriptions of any you want to contact.
Step Three: Throw the rest of Ars Goetia in the garbage and tell it that it’s a very rude poorly behaved book.
Step Four: Inscribe a sigil on whatever you have available. If you happen to have an unused gold tablet laying around I’m sure they’d be flattered, so by all means pull out the dremel tool and get to work. If you’re like the rest of us, pen and paper is fine. If you want to get really fancy, use a consecrated pen or special ink.
Step Five: Cast a circle and so on in whatever fashion suits your tradition. It’s not to protect you from the demon, it’s to screen out discordant energy and interference.
Step Six: Respectfully request their presence and begin conversing. Treat them as one part deity and two parts royalty. Please and thank you. Yes sir/ma’am. Etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. In fact don’t even think of it as summoning. That word implies compulsion. You are asking, not telling.
The Goetic demons are GODS. Several of them can be traced to their origins. Asteroth is the Egyptian Astarte. The idea that you can force them to do your bidding, or that you can protect yourself from them, is a joke.
The Goetic concept that they are bound to specific sigils and commands is based on a pact made by King Solomon for a fixed period of time, which has expired. It’s useless now, even if it ever was genuine. They help those who they find worthy, and no one else.
If you are respectful, and they find you worthy, they may choose to help you. If you are unworthy, some of them might just decide to fuck with you. Which would fall under the category of not my problem, so follow my advice at your own risk. Each demon has their own standards and personality. It’s almost like they’re real people (heavy sarcasm). If you want to work with them, treat them as such. If you give a major demon an order, I have zero sympathy for what they may do to you.
I am not recommending that anyone evoke demons. For humans it’s really generally not a good idea unless they take an interest in you first. You don’t have claws and scales. But if you’re going to do it anyway, try not to make an ass of yourself. Entrails are a bitch to clean out of carpet.
"Hello bad and naughty children, it is time to learn about demons."
“Now that we have learned about curses, it is time to learn about demons: The filthy crime boys of the spirit world.”
“It is a well known fact that all Goetic demons want to kick YOUR ass. Assert your dominance by immediately challenging them to a knife fight upon summoning them.”
“Wear astral condoms on each of your hands to protect you while you perform the ritual. No, this is very important. For extra protection, consider inflating a condom and crafting a balloon animal as an offering for your new friend. Slippery, but useful.”
“Offerings. You need offerings. You gotta… You gotta just… Just give em a piece of your dinner, ok? Give them a bone, give them some old banana peel. They love it. They LOVE it.”
“Crunch up some incense and give it a taste. It helps you see better, do you understand? Just have a crunch. Can’t hurt. Makes your breath smell good. Demons love good breath.”
“DEFINITELY do the ritual naked, extremely naked, peel off your skin and do it in your bones. Demons will appreciate the extra effort put forth, and may grant you saucy favors. ;) ”
“Worms? Worms?? I don’t see any worms? Don’t worry about the worms. Don’t look directly at the worms.”
“Remember, a firm handshake and a good slap on the ass go a long way when sealing any deal or contract. Making eye contact shows that you are serious. Eye contact is a must. Never break eye contact. Good slap on the ass. Don’t forget it.”
“Do not feed them whiskey. Makes em fighty.”
“The last and most important tip: Always pick a specific demon to blame all of your problems on. Cat got out? That’s his problem. Stub your toe? He did this. Worms? I told you not to look at the worms. Listen, I’m the best, I’m an expert, okay?”
I’d like to write more posts about how Goetic demons and Goetic vs non-goetic hell, so if you could reblog this and state what goetic demon you work with (preferably on the post, *not* in the tags) that would be super helpful!
Here’s two fascinating one hundred year old grimoires; The Greater Key of Solomon (1914) and it’s companion volume The Lesser Key of Solomon GOETIA (1916), published by L.W. de Laurence the infamous plagiarist.
These books had a far reaching effect on the western world, putting forbidden knowledge in the hands of anyone who was daring enough to look inside. We must bare in mind that before such books as these most people had only heard of them in hushed whispers, hearing and reading stories of their use, conjuring up demons and the devil himself, and of Faust losing his soul. Then, finally the printing presses churned out these forbidden books, books that in many countries were illegal for fears of what they may unleash, for the fear of what dwelt within…
Recently I’ve heard several stories of people having issues
with a certain goetic demon (number 39 or Mlphs).
I honestly didn’t pay any attention to it due to the fact that I 1). Don’t work
with goetic demons 2). Know that it’s
common for people to assume all demons are evil. 3). Work with demons and try
to give everyone the benefit of the doubt
However, I learned the hard way that the stories going
around about this entity were not being overly dramatized. I don’t want to give
too much detail as some of the information is not mine to share but what
I was doing a reading for someone when he showed up. He
demanded that information be passed on to the person I was doing the reading
for, and has harassed them before (I did not know this at the time). Although
he did far more than just make demands and mess with my pendulum. He drained me
of my energy to the point that I had a hard time moving for at least 10-15
minutes after he left. To make matters worse he also left a gigantic, nasty parasite
in my energy system. It took the help of a god to yank the parasite out and I
am still recovering from it.
This demon showed up of his own accord, I did not summon or
call for him, in order to not just mess with me but the person I was doing a
reading for. He made demands, tried to use me to harass the person I was doing
a reading for, drained my energy, left me with a huge parasite problem, and
threatened my companions. ON TOP OF
THAT, he later intimidated another spirit I knew but did not work with into
delivering a message along the lines of “hey I can really mess you up, work
with me or else.”
Guys please, I’m not telling you who you can and cannot work
with, but if this spirit shows up check yourself for parasites, cleanse
yourself & your space, if you can call for help, and put up as many wards
as you can. He shouldn’t be trusted and does NOT have your best interest in
So, I’ve been studying the Goetia, and I wanted a master ritual to invoke the whole lot. Being a former Catholic, a litany seemed like the way to go. I recommend lighting the incense of your choice, closing the circle with the opening invocation, and having a black miror to focus on while invoking. For added fun, get a group of friends together and do it as a group!

SO, I never uploaded my final project for last semester’s SEQA100 course. GREAT class, great feedback, felt pretty great about this project at the time, aaaand. I kinda feel like this sucks now. But I DID put a lot of work into this, and in all likelihood I will be revisiting it very soon (not in this strip format, though), so it’s going up here for posterity.
Anyway basically the girl is named Gladys and the little demon she summons is Buer, my All Time Favorite Demon Forever. A big part of the project was to self-publish your minicomic yourself, so I also have some cute paper copies left over for fun:
Good project! And despite the flaws I’m picking over now, I’m still pretty excited to work on it some more on my own time.
