Pillar Candle, Soy Pillar Candle, Astral Light Deity, Baphomet Ritual Altar Candle


The occult symbol of Baphomet is powerful and mysterious. You won't find alot written about him and you will have to patient finding information on the meaning and symbolism behind this mysterious figure. Baphomet is the Astral Light (or the Universal Agent) and a symbol of balance, unity and holds the key to many occult mysteries.

The best description I can give you of Baphomet comes from the French 19th century occultist Eliphas Levi in his book titled Dogme et Rituel de la Haute Magie (Dogma and Ritual of the High Magic) who also originally drew the most well know image we have of Baphomet. Levi gives a profound and meaningful description of what the dualistic nature of Baphomet represents to occultists. Baphomet is ultimately an element of change and the potential to be both good and bad: 

'The goat which is represented in our frontispiece bears upon its forehead the Sign of the Pentagram with one point in the ascendant, which is sufficient to distinguish it as a symbol of the light. Moreover, the sign of occultism is made with both hands, pointing upward to the white moon of Chesed, and downward to the black moon of Geburah. This sign expresses the perfect concord between mercy and justice. One of the arms is feminine and the other masculine, as in the androgyne of Khunrath, those attributes we have combined with those of our goat, since they are one and the same symbol. The torch of intelligence burning between the horns is the magical light of universal equilibrium; it is also the type of the soul, exalted above matter, even while cleaving to matter, as the flame cleaves to the torch. The monstrous head of the animal expresses horror of sin, for which the material agent, alone responsible, must alone and for ever bear the penalty, because the soul is impassible in its nature and can suffer only by materializing. The caduceus, which, replaces the generative organ, represents eternal life; the scale-covered belly typifies water; the circle above it is the atmosphere, the feathers still higher up signify the volatile; lastly, humanity is depicted by the two breasts and the androgyne arms of this sphinx of the occult sciences. Behold the shadows of the infernal sanctuary dissipated! Behold the sphinx of mediaeval terrors unveiled and cast from his throne!'
