Ok. I need to clarify something. People who joined this group need to read "the rules" to understand why we reject some types of Art. We usually leave a comment, and tell you exactly "which rule." you need to read or re-read because people usually join too many groups and forget. The artist who joined should appreciate this, because not too many groups bother to tell you anything; you also should not rely on this. I do not have much time myself and I am the only admin active currently. So PLEASE DO READ THE RULES. If you get emotional and leave, I still wish you best luck. I would recommend you to open your own group, or just join groups that accept everything. There are many of them actually. This is not one of them. WE DO NOT ACCEPT EVERYTHING. When we decline a work, we usually request something else from your gallery when possible. DO NOT MAKE DRAMA. If you are unhappy with the rules, leave silently like an adult.

Luciferic-Shadows follows a very specific "dark theme" based on the Occult. We recently added "Beautifully Horned" and emotional and fantasy folders just to support a larger audience of artists. Everything here MUST BE DARK.

Another thing I need to clarify. Some materials in this group got approved in the past only because an admin did a poor job. We do not do the vote thing here anymore. So please, follow the rules strictly, because I monitor the folders every few months and if I find something that does not belong, IT WILL GET DELETED. I assure you.

Lastly, this group does NOT accept everyone. If you have no gallery or "dark" artworks to begin with, this group will decline your membership immediately, so join only if you are able to contribute here. If you are new, that is OK. Just re-join when you have something to offer.

You may notice some changes in the folders. We have added new ones and I spent very long hours moving things to the right sections.

Thank you,

High-Quality DARK ART ONLY - Illuminate the Darkness


:bulletpurple: About the group:

Only in the grip of the Darkness you will shine amidst the brightest stars. Luciferic-Shadows is a home for High-Quality Dark Artists with tendencies towards the Occult & Mythology. Check our Gallery Folders to see what kind of Art we accept then read the rules before joining. Everything must be Dark. Luciferic-Shadows is diabolical.

Mythology in Luciferic-Shadows focuses on Horned Gods, the Dark Goddess, Vampires, Dark Angels and Demons in addition to Witches and Wizards, and the Pagan theme.

:bulletpurple: Who/What is Lucifer ?

Read this part if you are interested or just skip to the Rules And Guidelines section.

“If Luna [Selene the moon] is a goddess, then Lucifer (the Morning Star) also and the rest of the Wandering Stars will have to be counted Gods as well.” – Cicero, De Natura Deorum (Roman C1st B.C.)

Often misconstrued as being Satan. This group does NOT adhere to the popular biblical beliefs regarding a fallen "being" called Lucifer, even though the biblical story inspires many of us here. We go way back to the origin story from Sumeria, the Land of Khem, and Ancient Greece. Lucifer in this group is a title for 'MANY' morning stars deities.

Lucifer comes from the Latin lux "light" and ferre "to bear or bring." This group shows The Adversarial Light.

Lucifer is the Latin Luciferus, the light-bringer, the Morning Star, equivalent to the Greek Phosphorus-the name of the pure, pale herald of daylight.

Luciferic-Shadows is originally a group with a focus on the path of apotheosis, sometimes referred to by outsiders as the esoterica or "the esoteric religion." which is a collection of ancient pantheons. In Luciferic-Shadows, Light and Darkness are equally important, exactly like the Sun and the Moon. The term "Lucifer" is a Latin word meaning 'Light Bearer.' It is a term for the Morning Star and it is related to the Planet Venus and the Air element.

Inside the pagan circles, Lucifer is related to Aradia and Diana. We acknowledge this particular "Pagan root." It is often refereed to as "the Gospel of the Witches." which is Italian pagan witchcraft tradition.

In Greek mythology, Lucifer is the Lord of Phosphorus; another manifestation of Prometheus. Lucifer in some traditions is a form of the "Adversary" against the Lords of the righteous. Lucifer is an enlightened rebel who opposes the jealousy and severity of Zeus-Jehovah. Lucifer manifests in the feminine masks as Aphrodite or Ishtar/Astarte and even Hecate; the primordial goddess of the planet Venus. In the Roman myth, Lucifer is the son of the Goddess Aurora. The Light Prince existed in all ancient pantheons. Neophytes are encouraged to find their "own connection" in any of these traditions.

We recognize "Lucifer" as the Spirit of the Air; meaning spiritual matters, and this Spirit is known in the Luciferian Aeon as a kundalini Serpent, the Daimon, or inner flame, which is the spark of consciousness and the True Will. This Luciferian "substance" has been in existence in all ancient cultures. Some refer to Lucifer as the Acausal being in a theistic matter; a deity. Some see Lucifer as the “Higher Self” while others see Lucifer as an archetype, a metaphor, or a symbol of enlightenment, wisdom, and apotheosis. These are "models" used to approach the same goal in the Aeon of light. Lucifer initiates into the antinomian path, so called Left-path or Vamachara. Also, commonly known as the Left-handed attainment.
