Do you know anything about Leviathan?

sopherielspeaks:

I’ve never encountered the actual being/creature, but to my understand it has to do with Lilith and Samael, so some legends go at least. 

I intuitively feel like they (or it) are sired by Aamon and Lilith together. Aamon has made thousands of monster like children. 

do you happen to know if leviathan ever sired any children?

littledoomwitch:

nope, according to Jewish Midrash Adonai slayed the female Leviathan so that way they could never mate. though Leviathan’s gender is kind of debated to begin with, so I’d say there’s only one, therefore no.

though there are other sea monsters within Jewish Lore known as taninim.

Ohhh~ Would you mind sharing a little bit of you knowledge with me then?

littledoomwitch:

sure! it’ll be a lot of rattling off info from books, but I hope it helps!

Leviathan is known best in Demonolatry as the go-to demon for the element Water. but another thing Leviathan is best known for is that they don’t really have a set gender! You’ll hear them referred to as he, she, an androgynous creature, and so on. most popularly, when Dukante went about assigning genders to demons, Leviathan was female.

In the Hierarchies constructed by Sebastien Michaelis, Leviathan is in the first Hierarchy and represents Faith. Peter Binsfeld said Leviathan represented Lust. In the Misc. Medieval Hierarchies of unknown origin, Leviathan is in the Arch She-Demon category as a Chaos Dragon. Finally, Dukante lists them as a Water Elemental in the Second Family.

Leviathan comes from Hebrew origins and represents the raging sea and was seen as a Grand Admiral of Hell.

When a basic rite is done, they are one of the four demons you invoke. Her invocation is “Jedan Tasa hoet naca, Leviathan”. and fun fact, according to Connolly we have no idea what language that is! it was just made by the Demonolator Alexander Willit.

Leviathan matches up to the Water Element (as if I haven’t said that enough) and is aligned under Cancer, Pisces, and Scorpio for signs and then the Moon, Neptune, and Mars for planets. but it’s made pretty clear that when you choose a demon for your counterpart, it’s not terrible to decide not to work under your sign. it’s a lot of what you feel!

They’re also used in water blessings, has a holiday on April 30 for initiations and First Rites, and then has another holiday on September 21 for Equinox Rites.

Hope that helps!

What information do you know about Leviathan, and do you know if he sired any children?

remielangel:

In my experience, Leviathan is synonymous with Rahab. I’ve had a few interactions with him, and I’m very fond of him. I usually see him either near, or in, an ocean whose water is black and glassy. And he varies from a humanoid angel form, to a dragon, and places inbetween. 

He is very quiet. When he does talk, it’s terse, whispered, haunting, and perfectly enunciated. Most of my interactions with him have involved me being an idiot, and him trying to help me relearn how to work with abyssal energy.

I don’t know if he sired any children. The closest answer I can get is a quite possibly. Rahab is tied to the Abyss, and from what I can gather (UPG), that place is teeming with life. Some entities can work with that energy, and I can see no reason new beings - children, in a sense - couldn’t be brought forth from it. The way I have heard some demons talk about things, that could even be where they come from. 

Here is some information from the book I tend to fall back on for lore, Gustav Davidson’s “A Dictionary of Angels including the fallen angels”

Leviathan (Hebrew, “that which gathers itself together in folds”) - in the Enoch parables, Leviathan is the primitive female sea-dragon and monster of evil; in rabbinic writings, she (or he) is identified with Rahab, angel of the primordial deep, and associated with Behemoth.

Both Leviathan and Behemoth are said to have been created on the 5th day (see Greek Apocalypse of Baruch). In the system of Justinus, Leviathan is “a bad angel”. In the view of George Barton in the Journal of Biblical Literature, Leviathan is “a Hebrew name for the Babylonian Tiamat”. I Biblical lore (Job 41:1) Leviathan is the great whale.

In Psalm 74:14 he is the hippopotamus or crocodile, or so is intended. In Mandaean lore, the final end for all but the purified souls is to be swallowed up by Leviathan. 

Rahab (“violence”; in Hebrew sar shel yam, “prince of the primordial sea.”). In Job 26:12; Psalms 37:4, Rahab designates Egypt as an earthly power of evil; also as “an angel of insolence and pride”. In the Talmudic Baba Batra, Rahab is called the “angel of the sea”. According to legend, Rahab was destroyed by God for refusing to separate the upper and lower waters at the time of Creation; and was destroyed again for trying to hinder the Hebrews from escaping the pursuing hosts of Pharaoh at the time of the crossing of the Red Sea. 

Another legend relates that Rahab restored to Adam the mystical Sefer Raziel after it had been cast into the sea by envious angels. The Babylonian Talmud regards Rahab, Leviathan, Behemoth, and the Angel of Death as identical or interchangeable.

Demon-A-Day: Orobas

OROBAS — Prince
Color: Blue
Incense: Cedar
Metal: Tin
Planet: Jupiter
Element: Water (Under Ziminiar)
Demonic Enn: Jedan tasa hoet naca Orobas
Date (Connolly): September 23 - October 2
Date (Runyon): Dec 22-26
Archangel: Auriel
Origin: ?
Original text from the Ars Goetia:

The Fifty-fifth Spirit is Orobas. He is a great and Mighty Prince, appearing at first like a Horse; but after the command of the Exorcist he putteth on the Image of a Man. His Office is to discover all things Past, Present, and to Come; also to give Dignities, and Prelacies, and the Favour of Friends and of Foes. He giveth True Answers of Divinity, and of the Creation of the World. He is very faithful unto the Exorcist, and will not suffer him to be tempted of any Spirit. He governeth 20 Legions of Spirits. His Seal is this, etc.

Other citations of note:

He inspires divination and brings impulses or intuition regarding things of the past, for instance if a horrible occurrence happened at a spot or area. Orobas brings the connection of the living and the dead. He brings also the favor of friends and foes, and is very faithful and  respectful to the sorcerer when summoned. He will not trick the magician and will provide quick answers unto that which he governs.

From Goetia, Luciferian Edition by Michael Ford

Excellent to invoke for bindings and changing people’s opinions. Orobas is a daemon of wisdom. His energy is very calming. He reminded me of a tamer version of Leviathan.

From Daemonolatry Goetia by S. Connolly
Orobas is another divination demon, which means he is very easily contactable. If you’re not one for ceremonial acts, simple things like an invocation and your divination methods of choice would be great to work with. He goes by no other names and belongs to no hierarchies.
Demonic Ranking System: Sweet as Candy
It definitely makes the game easy when they literally say that these guys will be faithful to you. I mean really, every single citation says he’s a sweetie pie. Sure, he looks like the original horse-head, but he’s a knowledge demon AND wants to keep you safe and friendly? That sure as hell sounds like a bargain to me. Plus, he’s easy to commune and that’s always a huge plus with some of these guys.

Demon-A-Day: Raum

RAUM — Earl
Color: Red
Incense: Dragon’s Blood
Metal: Copper or Silver
Planet: Mars
Element: Air (Fire) (Under Amaymon)
Demonic Enn: Furca na alle laris Raum
Date (Connolly): April 21-30 (Night Time)
Date (Runyon): Oct 8-12
Archangel: Raphael
Origin: Fallen Angel, Order of Thrones
Original Text from the Ars Goetia:

The Fortieth Spirit is Raum. He is a Great Earl; and appeareth at first in the Form of a Crow, but after the Command of the Exorcist he putteth on Human Shape. His office is to steal Treasures out King’s Houses, and to carry it whither he is commanded, and to destroy Cities and Dignities of Men, and to tell all things, Past and What Is, and what Will Be; and to cause Love between Friends and Foes. He was of the Order of Thrones. He governeth 30 Legions of Spirits; and his Seal is this, which wear thou as aforesaid.

Other citations of note:

Raum was said to steal treasures from a King’s castle, however this may be translated into an intiatory context as gathering secrets astrally, from others if need be. He is also capable to destroy dignities of men and primarily acts as a divinatory spirit.

From the Luciferian Goetia by Michael Ford

Invoke Raum to take down a mighty foe or adversary. Raum is also helpful in legal battles against large conglomerates. Seek Raum’s wisdom to find personal strength when the odds are against you.

From the Daemonolatry Goetia by S. Connolly
Raum is a demon designed to fight against those bigger and badder than you. He is best for stealing, destroying, and combating with his wisdom. He is best for destruction and absolute obliteration of a problem. He goes by no other names and belongs to no demonic hierarchies.
Demonic Ranking System: “Murder” Of Crows
Okay, so we all know how fucking cool it is that a group of crows is called a murder, right? Pretty sure this guy is like the exact reason they’re called that. Raum? Fucking terrifying. He is literally designed to murder the shit out of anything you ask for. And that is not a good first-timer demon. Or a second timer. You’d be lucky if you were a third-timer, really. Raum just wants to murder shit, steal shit, and learn shit. Probably best to just let this guy do his thing.
