Happy Beaster 2024 from The Black House!

Happy Beaster!

While Christians celebrate their myth of a savior risen from the dead, Satanists note that aspects of today’s traditions stem from ancient seasonal celebrations which often include symbolism derived from the rising of dormant vegetation, and thus “rebirth” and “resurrection.” Maga Nadramia has strategically placed tulips to enhance our garden here at The Black House. A growing number of Satanists enjoy rebranding this day, exchanging greetings of “Happy Beaster!” for they use this occasion as a reminder of the love, respect, and awe we have for non-human animals, with whom we are so evidently kin.

Gustav Mahler‘s “Song of the Earth” created a new form of song-cycle symphony, which has inspired a number of later composers to do the same—Shostakovich and Penderecki, to name two. Mahler set Chinese poetry which had been translated into German, and the topics cover quite a number of […]

Spring flowers at The Black House.

Exquisite Equinox!

Many Satanists mark today’s seasonal pivot point, feeling simpatico with our homeworld’s continuing seasonal cycles. In the Northern Hemisphere, Spring arrives, succeeding Winter’s torpor with a renewed, verdant surging. In the Southern Hemisphere, Autumn soothes after the scorching Summer months.
