Wicca Online Community For Pagans and Wiccans


I hope I dont get trash talked for this post. I know a lot of people MIGHT get mad and holler at me...

But I HAVE had traditions (right now I dont have one...) HOWEVER! I HAVE in the past worked with Lilith. I have an altar dedicated to her for that purpose. 
My NORMAL altar, does not honor her... it is just a general altar.

I have been feeling a VERY HIGH attraction to Lilith. I know she stems from many traditions- including Sumerian. Could be because I worked with a Sumerian Demon once that I feel that strong attraction to her?
And yet, I know that there is NO SPECIFIC tradition that honors Lilith.

I was wondering if there are any invocations... dedications... monthly esbat rituals, sabbat rituals... 

Even any Books Specifically dedicated to her 

And a question I have... does honoring Lilith make me a form of Satanist/ Luciferian?

"And a question I have... does honoring Lilith make me a form of Satanist/ Luciferian?"

Lilith was worshiped both as god and daemon in the middle east, in the later religions such as Jewism and Christianity worshiping gods was condemned. Here is my suggestion if you mean "Demon" as a malevolent entity who deceives and makes evil plans for people, I should remind you that no entity in this world is pure evil. just like you and me, gods have bright and dark sides, if you more inclined to do bright deed, then just follow the light. if you think you are being pulled to the dark side, then you should avoid the darkness. by the way we always should to take responsibility for our choices we make. therefore we should not take choices without proper knowledge.

There is this old shrine I had to find in an archive that contains history and rituals.

I have a few blogs up about Lilith as well.

Not at all. Many pagans honor and revere Lilith. The figure it much older than Abrahamic religion, anyway.

She has no ancient worship. All her worship is modern. She was not considered a goddess until recently.

What Lady Lilith posted is spot on,  Lilith as a goddess is modern mythology and there is nothing wrong with that as long as you don't claim ancient roots for a modern cult. Sumerian mythology is a particular favourite of mine, here is what is known about the Lilith of antiqity.

There is no evidence of an ancient cult dedicated to Lilith, she gets a one line mention in the Sumerian myth Gilgamesh and the Huluppu Tree, where she infests the tree and is driven out. She may be a wind spirit as in Sumerian 'lil' means air and possibly associated with the Akkadian demons in the catagory lilitu. This is of course academic speculation as there are no other mentions of her in Sumerian mythology, so one would tend to think that she was not particularly important in their worldview. If you consider that in Mesopotamian medicine spirits and wind were considered the vectors of disease, the south wind and south east wind in particular were considered to bring pestilence.

Lilu, Lilitu, and Ardat-Lili 

Not divinities as such, this trio of closely related demons inhabited the desert wastes, and functioned largely in terms of sexual and fertility aberration. Lilu and Lilitu were male and female equivalents of each other, and were regarded as dangerous to pregnancies and newborns, while Ardat-Lili ("Maiden Lilitu") may have been their offspring, and was seen as a spirit of sexual dysfunction and frustration, malevolent wives, and degeneracy in general. The general idea was imported into Hebrew mythology as Lilith, Demoness of desolation, obsession, and madness.

Here is Kramer's translation of Gilgamesh and the Huluppu Tree, which is the only known citation of Lilith:

She does not occur again until Jewish folklore, where she appears as Lilith or Lilit, alternatively the first wife of Adam and/or a night demon, which according to the Assyrologist Zimmern draws upon the Akkadian etymology of vardet lilitu. All other information you will find is modern interpretation.

The reason I ask if she is satanic and luciferian, is because she DOES show up in a lot of Chaos magic, and Theistic Satanism and Luciferian ideologies

Anything can show up in Chaos magic. That's what makes it so chaotic. :) And Satanism is kind of a specific thing. You can't really be one by accident, AFAIK.

I mean I have no problem if she happens to be within the Luciferian side of things...
And I have absolutely NO PROBLEM with Chaos magic.

I just want to know what I should be searching for.

I know when one has a calling to a specific deity, it's never a smart idea to just deny it. And this is something I have been feeling for a long time.

So what should I be searching through? Luciferian stuff? Or Wiccan (which has turned up very little thus far? >__/p>

Sorry, I'm unable to see your reply. I think something's weird in the formatting, maybe?

Probably... Either way I sent you a friend request... I hope you can accept and discuss, you seem to be QUITE knowledgable.

I was wondering basically if she is on the Luciferian side, is so I know what to research... She is not an easy one to find books on. Though it;s something I am dedicated to. Because I know when a deity calls someone, than they MUST do the research to obtain their knowledge. At least that is my personal belief.

I have an honored and worshiped lilith for many years. They are many misconceptions and fears. Lets be friends .my whole bos is dedicated towards her.

Oh... by no means am I fearful. Actually if she does happen to fall under a Luciferian tradition, I am more than happy to follow. 
I know a Luciferian Wiccan IS a thing.
