I have noticed that many people think that Baphomet is an actual deity or an actual being. Baphomet is a representation of Father Satan as each characteristic of Baphomet symbolizes the characteristics of Father Satan and we he stands up for.
The image of Baphomet of western occultism was taken from the image of Shiva. Note the position of the arms, one pointing upwards and the other downwards. The Baphomet again is symbolic of both the male and the female aspects of the soul. Note the Baphomet is both male and female, as also seen with in images of the Egyptian God Akhenaton. The horns are symbolic of Mercury, which is the vril, chi, witchpower, lifeforce, prana.
The wings of the soul represent spiritual freedom. The goat symbolizes fertility- fertility in multiplying the life force, vril, which activates and raises the serpent. The “Goat of a Thousand Young” is referring to the crown chakra, “Sahasrara” in Sanskrit which means “Thousand Petaled Lotus.”
The horns are symbolic of the life force, the witchpower, vril, chi…This is symbolized by the symbol for the planet Mercury [shown directly below]. “Mercury” is known as “Messenger of the Gods.” “God/s” is a code-word for the chakras. Note the horns shown on the image of Azazel [shown at left], with the rays shining fromm his head, representing the risen serpent.
