Lucifer Altar Ideas

Please note that posts on this site may contain affiliate links

The worship of Lucifer is becoming more popular, and many witches are setting up a Lucifer altar to honor him. He’s not one of those simple nature spirits: working with this god can be complicated and dark at times! This article will provide you with ideas on how to set up your own Lucifer altar.

Who is Lucifer? As the Light Bearer, he is a god of freedom, once the most popular and best-known angel. He is often seen as a rebellious angel who rebelled against God after the creation of humans. To modern witches, he is a symbol of freedom and individuality. 

As well as being popular with Pagans, Lucifer is also revered by Satanists, who honor him as the bringer of light and a symbol of the pursuit of knowledge and individuality. His is the light of success, and if you walk a balanced path he can help bring wonderful and amazing things into your life.

When setting up a Lucifer altar, the first thing to consider is exactly what you want the altar to represent. Will it be a place for yourself or your coven to worship? Will it be primarily about Lucifer or about celebrating his attributes? An altar can be as simple or as elaborate as you want it to be. 

In my experience with him, Lucifer doesn’t demand anything fancy from those he works with. What he does demand is an earnest desire to improve yourself and honesty in all that you do. If you are in search for light and enlightenment in your life, this may be the deity for you.

How To Worship Lucifer

Many of those who work with Lucifer say it’s less about worshipping him and more about working in tandem towards common goals. Personally, however, I think the great fallen angel deserves reverence and some form of worship. You’ll have to figure out what kind of relationship you have with this god on your own.

Lucifer likes those who are active in their witchcraft. If you do charms, spells, and other spellcraft regularly, he is sure to be pleased.

He also likes those that try to build a better path for humanity. This bright morning star wants humanity to flourish, to learn, to know, and to be better. 

The few who come to worship Lucifer with malicious intention tend to be scared straight. The god doesn’t suffer fools, so his rule is either shape up or ship out!

While Lucifer can be invited into your magical space through formal spirit summoning, my best work with this god has been through scrying and meditation. Simply sitting and speaking to him is often enough to enact change within and without.

Color Symbolism For Lucifer Worship

Because Lucifer is the “light-bringer” and “morning star,” you should use light colors on your altar, such as white or yellow. You could also use gold and silver, or even red. 

You may have expected the color black to be included because the mainstream sees Lucifer as a dark figure, and black is indeed a good color for Lucifer. But when we look past what Christianity has told us about Lucifer, we can see that he is a deity of light, not darkness.

Chances are, he will guide you to the right colors for your altar for him. I use deep, dark purples and golds to represent Lucifer on my altar.

Symbols Of Lucifer For Your Altar 

When setting up an altar to Lucifer, you should include certain symbols that represent him. Because Lucifer is one of the names for the morning star, Venus, symbols of Venus are also often appropriate for him.

Offerings are used to show proper respect for Lucifer and also to honor his attributes. 

If you have an altar set up for Lucifer, you will want to make sure that you have offerings on it for him. Contrary to popular belief, Lucifer doesn’t want you to worship him like some deities do. What he does want, though, is the respect he is owed for guiding you.

Working With Hekate During The Full Moon

During the full moon, we call upon Hekate to assist us in clearing our past, releasing our fears, and opening ourselves to new possibilities. We ask her to help us gain clarity in our lives, to help us transform our inner worlds, and to allow us to move forward with courage and confidence.

It is said that Hekate helps us to overcome obstacles and challenges that stand in our way, and to achieve our goals. In addition to being a benevolent Goddess, she is also a fierce warrior. When we summon her, we invite her to help us take charge of our lives, to lead us into battle, and to fight for justice.

I am an eclectic witch - I've been practicing since 1974. As a student of the occult, working with astrology, tarot cards, runes, and numerology, I found that this was a very comprehensive and well written text on working with Hekate during the full moon. Highly recommended. - Gail Sager

Great read - a must have for anyone interested in working with the Goddess during the full moon! Highly recommended! - Luis Meyer

Gorgeous Lucifer Statues

You can find many different types of Lucifer statues on Etsy. You can also make them yourself if you have the right tools.

Lucifer statues are very popular for Luciferian altars because they symbolize power, strength, and beauty. 

They can also be used as decorations for your home or office. A Lucifer statue around your home will bring positive vibes like love, peace, and happiness to your life.

If you want a more powerful version of this type of statue, then look into purchasing one made from black stone. Black stones are usually associated with banishment, protection, and purification. 

Black Feathers To Represent Lucifer Wings

Black feathers are a good way to represent Lucifer in your home without making other people suspicious. They are black like Lucifer’s wings, and can be very powerful tools for invoking or evoking Lucifer.

A feather is an excellent tool for invoking Lucifer because it represents freedom, independence, and self-will. It has been said that when you invoke Lucifer using a feather, he will protect you from harm.

How Can I Make Lucifer Obey Me?

In short: You can’t, and you shouldn’t. Lucifer is best as a partner, rather than a master or a slave. He wants to help you help yourself, not obey you. If you try to force him to do anything, you’ll only end up frustrated.

Lucifer And Lilith Together

Lilith is often depicted as being dark and seductive, while Lucifer is portrayed as dark and charming. However, these two gods were once together, and they still share a strong bond.

When you work with both of them at once, you get the benefits of both. Each god brings something unique to the table, so working with them together is beneficial.

When you invite both of them to your altar, you’re inviting them to join forces. This means that you’ll be able to use their combined powers to create something beautiful.

What Does Lucifer Want From Me?

The most important thing Lucifer wants from you is your free will. He doesn’t want you to worship him; instead, he wants you to choose what you believe in.

He wants you to feel empowered by your own decisions, and he wants you to know that there’s nothing wrong with having your own opinions.

The second most important thing Lucifer wants is for you to follow through with your promises. He knows how easy it is to promise things but never actually deliver.

Most importantly, Lucifer wants you to live a happy life. He wants you to experience everything life has to offer, and he wants you always to remember that you deserve to enjoy life.

Remember to live deliciously!

What Is The Lucifer Aesthetic?

The Lucifer aesthetic is all about living a decadent lifestyle. Whether you’re interested in fashion, art, music, literature, or food, the Lucifer aesthetic is all about enjoying life.

It’s about experiencing the world, and taking advantage of every opportunity that comes along.

It’s about finding beauty in the mundane, and appreciating the little things in life.

Luciferian Philosophy

The Luciferian philosophy is based on the idea that we should all have fun and live our lives to the fullest. We should always strive to make the most out of each day, and we should never let anyone tell us otherwise.

We should also learn to appreciate ourselves, and accept who we are. Never become a slave or vassal to anyone else. Instead, we should respect everyone around us, even if they don’t respect themselves. And that includes ourselves!

Lucifer also encourages us to learn as much as we can. Knowledge is power, and we should always seek knowledge wherever we go.

Why Should I Invoke Lucifer?

If you’re looking for answers to some serious questions, then you might consider asking Lucifer for advice. He’s one of the few deities who will answer any question without lying to you. Even if the truth hurts!

If you’re struggling with an issue, ask Lucifer whether he thinks you should take action. He won’t lie to you, and he won’t judge you either.

You can also ask Lucifer to protect you and your loved ones. If someone is threatening you or someone you care about, ask Lucifer to help you deal with this person.

You can also ask Lucifer to bless your home and your family. When you do this, you’ll be helping others too.
