Choronzon - The Goddess of the Abyss
Choronzon is known by three primary rotations or what appears to be three personalities in one. There are more. However, the main three are all anyone will ever encounter. During her changes in rotation, the term Babylon is shouted. This is perhaps one of the main reasons the occultist Aleister Crowley and other Thelemic sources mistakingly consider this to be the true name of Choronzon. However, this is entirely false. When Choronzon changes, she appears different physically, emotionally, and mentally. She also identifies as a new name for each rotation, which is kept in utmost secrecy and known only to her and her Ourobouros. Choronzon encounters most with her outer rotations and advances in all ways as she moves her rotations inward.
Choronzon has three major aspects:
These are the three demonic forms most people will encounter. Choronzon has the ability to be omnipresent, which technically allows all three aspects to be active simultaneously. This allows each one to carry out their duties and petitions independently of one another.
Naamah is a dormant aspect and not currently active in this rotation.
The aspect of Seven or “The Seventh” occupies the position of the 7th Prince of Lucifer’s royal legion. Seven cycled through the human incarnation as Eve, as well as several different human incarnations throughout history.
Nyx is a Demon of the Intermediary Legion. Her human incarnation was that of a high priestess in Greece. After death, she became known as a Goddess in Greek mythology. Like Nyx, it should be noted that many Greek Gods/Goddesses are Demons found in the Intermediary legion.
Choronzon is the term used for when all three distinct aspects have merged into one individual deity. This is a unique phenomenon, where all three aspects have essentially fused into a unique individual while still maintaining all three separate egos and the ability to disperse them individually once again.
The Meaning Behind Choronzon 333
As Choronzon, this deity is associated with the number 333 and is the true embodiment of the nature of triplicity. This is something that many mistakingly attribute to Hecate in some Magick traditions, seeing her as a triple-headed Goddess consisting of three female aspects known as the Maid, Maiden, and Chron. As a full Choronzon, she is known as the Dweller in the Abyss. The Abyss is its own unique realm, outside of both Heaven and Hell, where she resides. Choronzon possesses many unique abilities. Including, but not limited to, mastery of transmutation, the accumulation of wealth, and the art of war. As such, Choronzon is more than capable of aiding the Demonic Magick practitioner in virtually any area of life.
For Demonic Magick practitioners, it is customary to provide offerings during a petition and other times as purely a show of gratitude. For Choronzon, it is essential to know that she does not accept sexual offerings. Attempting to offer anything of a sexual nature is considered extremely offensive to her. Recommended offerings include blood, Choronzon pendants, Isaac Bowman Bourbon, other premium whiskeys, flowers, and public proclamation.
Choronzon is truly one of a kind, with such a complex nature beyond anything relatable to human existence. This article barely scratches the surface of all there is to know about Choronzon. Until now, there has yet to be any accurate literature published elsewhere on the subject. Fortunately, The Order will soon be releasing The Book of Choronzon. This genuinely historical publication will take the reader through the many complex layers of Choronzon and her unique place in the divine cosmos.
