Hello,

I obtained the copy of this Grimoire and I am truly grateful for the possibility of practising and reading the contect of it. I was early not able to buy it, but then came the opportunity for which I am happy that happened and than I could receive the copy of the Grimoire and start to work with it in order to gain the indepths concerning the working sof the SOA but not only because this grimoire is multi dimensional and can be worked with by anyone who wish to do so and is able to. Further insighs concerning this grimoire I will like to share in time after having more experience and ideas coming from this publication as it is a very inspiring Grimoire worth to closely focus on.

What are the symbols on the four corners of the cover meant to represent?

I've tried looking about but they don't seem to be taken directly from anything.

I apologise if this is actually something more obvious than I realise, or if this is something left to be discovered.

No need to apologise, that's a good question.

NW
The root of this one is the Peter's cross (the "inverted" one). In the middle there are another "hands", which point upwards & downwards like those of the letter aleph, representing the magician who unites the heaven & hell (like Peter, who also had the possession of those both keys). At the upmost is a very important symbol for the Star of Azazel's philosophy, namely the eye made out of vesica piscis or the intersecting curved lines.

SW
The horned symbol of Taurus is important one for Venus & the fertility both physical & spiritual. Here the sign has been drawn in a way that it too creates the above mentioned Azazelian vesica piscis symbol.

SE
This one is a monogrammatic version of the Hebrew name for Satan (STN) written in one version of the Hebrew alphabet used in magic, forming a crooked trident whose points are the letter Shin.

NE
Another two symbols for Satan are interwoven here, Saturn (kâma manas) below and Venus (manas) above.

As you see, there's a theme in all these symbols, the uniting of hands into a fruitful union under a Satanic aspect.
Faust: "Lo contempla. / Ei muove in tortuosa spire / e s'avvicina lento alla nostra volta. / Oh! se non erro, / orme di foco imprime al suol!"

Thank you so much for explaining this Nefastos!

That's actually sparked even more curiosity within me, mostly because of the link with Judeo-Christian symbolism which has popped up for me recently.

I'll give your explanations some contemplation and research and see where this leads me.

Again, thank you.

I tend to always be in the middle of reading some part of Fosforos. I'm almost currently reading Ervast's Key to the Kalevala. Methinks fra. Nefastos has received a bit of influence in, not just his content, but his writing style from our friend Pekka! Especially the little bits of humor injected into the writing and the moments of, "But this is not what we think about such matters, we believe that..." etc., etc. I love it, it's like reading Nefastos before there was a Nefastos! :)
