A few weeks ago I did an invocation of Samael, and it was also my first experience working with the Almadel. If you want to know more about the Almadel, try the Grimoire of Almadel by SL Mathers.

Anyways, so the invocation was done on Tuesday in the Hour of Mars during the waxing Moon. I do pretty much all my magick, except bindings/exorcisms, during the waxing moon. I’m a non traditional person, so I did not follow the working EXACTLY as it was prescribed in the book, instead taking John Dee’s advice on following your heart and doing what your gut tells you when invoking angels. I think this is a good title for my first blog post, and I hope you find it informative.

The first thing before any invocation is getting a good background on the spirit being invoked, and luckily for me, i’ve read about and worked with Samael since the beginning. Mythology often is not a record of stuff that literally happened, but stories our ancestors wrote in an attempt to understand and explain the natures of beings on higher planes, but which often ended up altered and corrupted over the ages.

Keep in mind i’m simply rephrasing all my knowledge comprehensibly, not copying from wikipedia, so pardon me if I don’t quote exact names and sources.

In the Talmud, he is the ruler of the fifth(sometimes seventh) Heaven, and the Angel of War and of Glory, who rules over the Planet Maadim (Mars), although on the Tree of Life the ruler of mars is Kamael. He is a heavenly host, but is also responsible for Death.

I’m only going for the oldest stories. If I took all the Church’s stories there is of him, we might as well mention every anime and video game where he appeared as “demon lord”. One can make an infinite number of stories on a mythological character, but that does not make them all relevant.

Prince of the demons, and an important figure both in Talmudic and in post-Talmudic literature, where he appears as accuser, seducer, and destroyer. His name is etymologized as = "the venom of God," since he is identical with the angel of death (Targ. Yer. to Gen. iii. 6; see also Death, Angel of ), who slays men with a drop of poison ('Ab. Zarah 20b; Kohut, "Angelologie und Dämonologie," pp. 69, 71). It is possible, however, that the name is derived from that of the Syrian god Shemal (Bousset, "Religion," p. 242).

All these descriptions of Samael show that he was regarded simply as the principle of evil that brought upon Israel and Judah every misfortune that befell them. Even at the creation of the world he was Lucifer, who ever sought evil and who began his malignant activity with Adam. His opponent is Michael , who represents the beneficent principle, and who frequently comes into conflict with him (comp. Jew. Encyc. viii. 536 et seq. ; Lucken, "Michael," pp. 22 et seq. ).

Sammael was among the original and most powerful of Greater Demons , particularly a fallen angel of the highest order, along with Lucifer and Azazel . He is credited as a responsible party for the beginning of the Incursion .

Sammael was believed to have been created when the world began. [1] He was once an angel , cast away from Heaven and became a Greater Demon , a general of Hell's army. [2] He met Lilith , who eventually became his companion. [3] He was believed to have taken the form of a great Serpent and tempted Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.

This event prompted the eventual creation of the Nephilim . Because of this act, he was hunted down and slain by the archangel Michael with his sword, Glorious . He has not been seen either on Earth or in the Void for nearly a thousand years since, and is widely believed to be dead, or at least destroyed temporarily, only taking centuries to reform in the Void. [1]

In Talmudic lore, Sammael was an important archangel but is also regarded as a powerful demon; he was a figure who was an accuser, seducer, and destroyer, and had been regarded as both good and evil. Rabbinical writings described Samael as the guardian angel of Esau and the Roman empire, and a patron of Edom . He was considered in legend to be a member of the heavenly host, often with grim and destructive duties, and remained one of God's servants even though he condoned the sins of man.

One of Samael's greatest roles in Jewish lore is that of the main archangel of death; sometimes the name of Satan is accorded to him, [4] as well as Death himself, or the Grim Reaper. In Roman Catholicism, Samael is seen as the controversial Angel of Death, the sinister counterpart of the "good" Angel of Death Michael . [5]

Other influence works suggest him to be the serpent in the Garden of Eden; he disapproved the creation of Adam and descended from heaven to seduce Adam and Eve to eat from the forbidden fruit. Furthermore, Cain was born from Eve by intercourse with Sammael. [4]
