In Alchemy, the Leviathan’s cross is a symbol for sulfur, which is one the three essential elements of nature.
In Asia, its name is the Brimstone Symbol.The association with the Leviathan makes it a symbol of depth and surfacing. The multiple crossroads of two crosses can be interpreted as a sign of free choice, it can also be seen as a stroke-through “equal-to” (=) to show that every person has their own life.
Sulfur (“Leviathan Cross”) A symbol for the alchemical element Sulfur, (Brimstone) which is spiritually analogous to the human soul. Alchemically, sulfur has the qualities of masculine, hot and dry. Combined with Mercury (feminine, cool and moist), the pair were considered the parents of all metals.
Alchemical drawings often portray Sulfur as the sun. (In some views, sulfur and salt are the parents of Mercury) The symbol of sulfur is often used as an identifying symbol by Satanists, due to sulfur’s historical association with the devil.
The Leviathan Cross was created by The Knights Templar. The symbol was then adopted by Anton LaVey in the 1960s, founder of the Church of Satan. Previous associations with the cross and Satanic foundations are unable to be identified.
SIGIL OF LUCIFER
The Sigil of Lucifer is a lesser known historical magical sigil used occasionally as an emblem by modern Satanists. The image originates in the sixteenth century Italian Grimoirium Verum, or “Grimoire of Truth.” Used in conjunction with other symbols, its original purpose of the sigil was to aid in a visual invocation of the angel Lucifer.
The figure is probably derived from an earlier work, most likely drawn from a magic square whose origins are now lost. The emblem is sometimes referred to as the “Seal of satan,” although this is not a historical usage.
A sigil is a magical symbol which represents a fallen angel or demon. They are used to conjure demons and create a bond between the demon and the magician, who then uses them to carry out their will and desire. In reality any “magick” or focused concentration to manifest ones own will is carried out by demons, not the universe responding, this is why new age teachings of “the secret” and manifestation are so spiritually dangerous. The sigil of lucifer is the symbol that represents and embodies lucifer, the prince of the fallen angels.
It is first recorded hundreds of years ago in the middle ages in “grimoires”, which are instructions books on black magick. Yet it is thought to originate in far older writings from the middle east and extend back to king solomon, who is said to have employed black magic and demonic powers to build the temple. King solomon in turn may have acquired the occult teachings from the pagan women he become involved with, who lead him astray. “Magick” itself is really supernatural manipulation of reality to suit your own will, which uses the unseen demonic realm to carry it out. It is warned about in the book of revelation, and possibly the oldest recorded incidents of magic are when the daughters of men became impregnated by the fallen angels in Genesis, producing the giant nephilim. This type of “Magick” is recognised and still practiced today, the two types of demons who engage in spiritual sex with humans are called “Incubus” and Succubus”. The Incubus is the male demon who impregnates the female human and the Succubus is the female demon who attempts to obtain the male life force.
