Left-Hand Path Witchcraft – Loki Witchcraft

The misdeeds of Loki must be accounted for, as they are necessary for the cosmic order. This evil will cease when the “Twilight of the Gods” (Ragnarok) occurs. The god has three children, one with the giantess Angroboda, and two with Fenrir, the cosmic wolf that opposes the gods. The other two children are the serpents of Midgard, Jormungand and Midgardsormr.

Because Loki has several aspects, many practitioners of this religion have a mixed relationship with him. The most threatening of these aspects is the Worldbreaker, which had a hand in the creation of Ragnarok. Worldbreakers destroy because they have no other option, and their actions are merely what they can do. The Worldbreaker aspect represents the concept of hitting rock bottom. In this way, many practitioners of Loki witchcraft identify as Left-Hand Path practitioners.

In Scandinavian mythology, Loki appears as a hawk, a fly, a salmon, a fish, a seal, or a young maiden. Other manifestations of the trickster god are an old hag or a mare, depending on the belief in the nature of the god. The shapeshifting powers of Loki are often explored through trance work, astral projection, and lucid dreams.

The trickster god of the Norse people, Loki is mischievous and cunning. He is the blood brother of Odin and is also the offspring of a taboo union between a goddess and a stallion. The origin story of Loki is mysterious, and archaeological evidence is mostly based on guesswork. One important piece of archaeological evidence is the Snaptun stone, which contains an image of Loki’s face with stitched-up lips. The stone was discovered in Denmark, which originated from Norway and western Sweden.

Though his powers are sinister, he is also a master tactician. His skill in devising schemes to get what he wants is impressive. For example, he managed to kill Baldr while still maintaining ties to the Gods of Asgard. His actions minimize comeuppances, but he displayed his impressive charisma and leadership skills during Ragnarok. His army was made up of Jotnar and undead dishonorable warriors.

The curse of Loki’s mother Sigyn is also considered an element of this type of witchcraft. In the Norwegian myth, Loki is tied to three rocks in a cave where a venomous serpent drips poison on him, which his wife, Sigyn, is bound to serve as his “bloodline” and “protector.” As a result, he will lead an army of evil against the gods of Asgardr.

There are two wives of Loki, Sigyn and Angrboda. He married the goddess Sigyn, which resulted in his son, Nari. The troll Angrboda had three children of her own: the underworld-ruling Hel, the giant-hunting wolf Fenrirait, and the eight-legged horse Sleipni. These women are the source of Loki’s witchcraft and a source of his enmity.

One of the most well-known trickster gods in Norse mythology, Loki is still very familiar in modern times. A trickster god, Loki’s purpose was varied depending on his form, but he always had a motive: wealth, women, and the pleasure of knavery. The deceit of Loki often put the gods in sticky situations and saved them from trouble by his tricks.
