For over a month I’ve been immersing myself in the knowledge of the Qliphoth. When I came across the tale of Inanna’s descent through the seven gates of the underworld I found it to be the most breathtaking piece of material I’ve read since becoming Luciferian. It resonated with me on so many levels. I feel like I too am walking this path. Inanna is me & I am her. Through her she gives me strength, wisdom, and knowledge. Many things I once found comfort in have been stripped from my life. While I mourned these losses, it was all for the better. Those things were not serving me. To ascend, I have to die to myself.
Everything she leaves behind at each gate is not merely just a garment or accessory, but symbolic of things in our day to day lives. This could be loss of work, finances, relationships, dealing with anxiety and depression, feeling lost, loss of friendships, and so on. Through these losses and hardships we are meant to grow and realize all these worldly things and our suffering are insignificant. Once we rise above these situations we can be reborn anew and become far more superior than before. It can be a crucial realization in ones ascension. Anyone suffering can look to the descent of Inanna and realize this is all just a blink of the eye. You can and will overcome.
While there’s some info about her on here, i didn’t want to bump a thread from 3 years ago. Sorry if I made a mistake by doing so! I wanted to share as much knowledge as possible about my patron goddess in hoping by doing so maybe she will call out to someone who might currently need her.
To see if Iannna connects with you, here is info I have obtained from working with her and research:
Inanna: Sumerian goddess, one of the whores of Babylon
Symbols: 8 pointed star, rosette
Associated animals: lions, owls, asps
Scents: Frankincense, cinnamon, rose, jasmine
Plants: Roses, blossoms
Foods: Pomegranate, apples, figs, olives
Stones: Lapis Lazuli
Colors: Red, purple, pink, any associated with love

Other associated names names: Ishtar, Astarte, Ariana, Tanit, Ishara, Istar, Istaru, Aschtar
Titles: Queen of Heaven, Goddess of the Evening & Morning Star, Loud Thundering Storm, Light of the World
If you are looking for help in these areas:
- Goddess of war, sex, fertility, & sensuality
- Protector of sex workers (Inanna herself was a sacred prostitute.)
- Helps sexual abuse victims (Inanna’s gardener, Shukaletuda, rapes her while she is sleeping)
- Good for justice against men who have abused women (After her sexual assault she rages wrath upon the earth and tracks down Shukaletuda and murders him.)
- Protector of women
- Goddess of love and helping with finding and mending relationships, not marriage though
- Defender of LBGTQ (Androgynous, gay, and transgender individuals heavily comprised her followers.)
I will add devotions, my own workings, and other information I come across as my bond with Ianna, my patron goddess, continues to grows. If anyone else has any experiences or knowledge with her I welcome you to share.
