THE AGE OF LUCIFER BEGINS
The Satanic Thulian Society, is devoted to many forms of occult study, just as much as it is devoted to preservation of LaVey's original Satanic philosophies and spirit, and to aid in heralding in a new Satanic Renaissance. To this end we officially announce the ending of all previous Satanic Ages and AEons, and announce the Dawn of the Age of Lucifer.
It is perhaps one of the lesser addressed parts of Satanism, and also one of the most influential. Our ages in history or the “Ano Satanas”.
The tradition of dating our events with the term “Ano Satanas” and whatever the roman numeral is started with Dr. LaVey announcing 1966 as the first year in the Age of Satan. The numerals afterwards refer to how many years in has been since its commencement.
The Church of Satan has continued with this tradition even to this day. However, there is much more to it than the CoS has taken note of. To the CoS we are still in the Age of Satan. The truth is that Calendar ended on October 29th 1997, with the Epoch of LaVey’s death.
To be clear the 20th century has been all Hell’s rise to power in the astral cycles. Beginning with HarWer’s age beginning its long shift with Crowley, and ending with the dawn of LaVey’s Age of Satan.
Set and Horus (HarWer: "Horus the Elder") were predynastic complementary _neteru_ throughout a variety of contexts: north/south, night/day, stellar/solar. They were not originally antagonistic, but were portrayed that way when later incorporated into the Osirian cult. Then Set was recast as Osiris' mortal enemy and Horus (as "Horus the Younger") as Osiris vengeful son. In the J/C Satan vs. YHVH antagonism you see the ghost of the Osirian mythos, complete with Jesus as the HY son-god and Isis/Mary as his mother. This is explored extensively in Massey's works, and in many more conventional analyses of ancient religion as well.

But when LaVey died it created a singular event called an Epoch. And following this a new Age or “Era” began. It was the Era of Andros. The “Age of Discord”.
In demonology, Andras is a Great Marquis of Hell. He is the 63rd of the 72 spirits of Solomon. Alternatively named Andra-inanyas. Andras has under his command thirty legions of demons whose only directive is to hunt and kill men. He is seconded by his henchman Flauros. Andras appears with a winged angel’s body and the head of an owl or raven, riding upon a strong black wolf and wielding a sharp and bright sword. Andras was responsible for sowing discord and for this reason was allegedly summoned quite often by military leaders, to use his abilities to incite wars that last for decades, redefining peoples and continents. In addition, due to the subtle nature of his work, Andras was supposedly extremely difficult to detect. Moreover Andras was considered to be a highly dangerous demon, who could kill the conjuring magician and his assistants if precautions were not taken. A misstep outside the magical protective circle could mean instant death for the conjurers.
This is exactly what has happened in Satanism since LaVey’s death in 97.
Many events have transpired in this timeframe that has changed the landscape of Satanism. LaVey's house was destroyed as a result of a lack of CoS unity. Organizations have risen and fallen. The Religion has splintered into a thousand factions. And from it discord at every turn. Deceivers bearing the mask of our religion has appeared to hijack our religion for political power, while the Church of Satan sits upon its laurels festering in a pond of stagnation.
It is now obvious we have been living in a different Satanic Age without realizing it, which of course lines up with the nature of Andras.
But Andras’s influence is over. 23 years after the Epoch of LaVey’s death, the lunar cycles came to polar confluence. When Anton LaVey passed in 1997, the moon was in a perfect new moon cycle. Landing upon All Hallows Eve as the total new moon. In 2020, exactly 23 years to the day, on the anniversary of LaVey's death, began a new lunar cycle. The second Full Moon phase of October 2020, culminated on All Hallows Eve in a Super Blue Full Moon. And thus, began a new Age that will see an end to Andras’s Discord.
Now we begin the Age of Lucifer. The Age of Wisdom.
