Who/What is Lucifer ?
This group does NOT adhere to the popular biblical beliefs regarding a fallen "being" called Lucifer.
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, 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." which is often refereed to as "the Gospel of the Witches."
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 Astarte; 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. 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. Others 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" to approach the same goal in the Aeon of light.
