I know I’m late jumping on the cart, but I wanted to take a stab at answering this for you Teufelhung OR:
[quote=“Teufelhund OR, post:1, topic:7708”] With all of the talk of Demons, Evocation and the darker magical path…
How do the Norse Gods play into all of this.[/quote]
One way to do it is to use a black magic system, and instead of using the classic demonology list of entities to work with, you use the Norse ones instead. At that point, it is looking to the mythology for correspondences. They aren’t nice and neat ones, like you’d find in Demonology and Greek mythology for example (which is why so many Greek demons fit so nicely in the originally Christian demonology system). But it more of looking for a general ‘type’.
For example: you state you’re interested in Azazel. There is lots of information on him, as I am sure you’ve already found, as he’s popular for black magicians to work with. Not only that, he likes to work with people. So, let’s say you choose to work with Azazel to further your spiritual development, let’s say. He likes to help people do that. If you’re looking for a corresponding Norse entity, you might choose Odin (how covonenient, you have a relationship with him already!) or Freya or Freyr or Njordh or Mimir or Vafthruthnir or Gullveig. All of these entities deal with wisdom, spirituality, and the magickal journey in some way. Let’s choose Vafthruthnir, because people don’t talk about the poor guy very much.
Firstly, you’re going to come up with a bindrune that stands for Vafthruthnir. There are lots of ways you can do it (let me know if you want to go into that). This is what you will use for your sigil in your ceremony, where normally you would have the sigil of Azazel, you have this bindrune. So, you’re going about the ritual in the same way (after time, you’ll adapt it to give it a more Norse feel. At least, that is what I have done, but it is obvious that the trappings are ceremonial magic), gazing at the sigil, chanting ‘vafthruthnir’, to get your evocation juices going. Then, once you’ve evoked the Jotun (and if you choose to do this, tell us what happens!) ask your questions and get your knowledge and do all that magicky stuff that we do!
I’ll end here, because I could go on for ages and ages. Also, I might have to evoke him now, to see what happens.
