Leviathan goes by The Great Sea Serpent, LVIThN, Crooked Serpent, Piercing Serpent, Dragon, and Yamm. Leviathan’s name means “Twisted One” and is pronounced “Lev-i-a-than”. Leviathan was said to be born out of the sea and the monster beneath the waves. His parents where Asherah and El. His original name was actually unknown, and Leviathan was the name of his mate, and when she died, she fused into him, and he became Leviathan. In the Bible it spoke that no person or angel could slay him, so God had to Himself. God commanded that once the Leviathan had been slain, that his gleaming skin be hung from the walls of the castle, that it may shine brightly. In Old Canaanite beliefs, Leviathan battled with a storm God named Baal, which brought a great flood and wiped out most of humanity. When he died, it is said the Goddess Astarte wept over his corpse, pleading that they could have captured instead of killing him. Because of his death, Astarte went to Death and begged him to kill the God Baal, which Death did. When Death killed Baal, Death proclaimed that the great serpent would rise again.
Leviathan is known as the deity of emotions, able to bring out the inner most thoughts, feelings, and ideas. For this Shadow Magik is a central part of his workings. Since he was born in the water, water is his element and such is sacred to him. West is the direction of chaos and disorder, which is what he rules over. Sex is apart of emotions and apart of the self, so naturally Leviathan rules over that as well. Freedom of choice in this is critical. Inner being and rebirth is exposing yourself to who you truly are, and being “reborn” from who you used to be.
