Image: Tarot card from the “Rider-Waite tarot deck” Rider-Waite tarot deck, also known as the Rider-Waite-Smith deck,” by Pamela Coleman Smith, published in 1909, in Wikipedia, public domain … DESCRIPTION: “A 1909 card scanned by Holly Voley for the public domain, and retrieved from http://www.sacred-texts.com/tarot (see note on that page regarding source of images)” … COMMENT: Note how the two people are linked to each other through the devil or demon. This demonic intermediary adds what might be termed ‘eau de l’impiété’ to what otherwise be a sacred relationship. Note how the devil or demon is depicted as higher up than the couple; another way of describing it would be to imagine this being as flying in the air between the two lovers, or perched on the head of first one lover, then the other, and interfering with their thoughts and emotions. –Alice Clagett
Psy in the Sky: To hear it on the astral plane, there must be more ‘demon lovers’ than pigeons here in Los Angeles. Let me see … 4 million people as of 2016 … 5,000 pigeons in Hollywood in 2008, all on birth-control kibble … maybe not so bad after all …
Andy Irvine has done a great job singing the original version of “The Daemon Lover,” an ancient poem about obsession by the demon realm …
The myth has morphed to a song called “The House Carpenter,” I really like Bob Dylan’s way of singing it …

The poem explains how obsession by the demon realm destroys romantic love and family life, and send’s a person’s mental and emotional bodies into the hellworlds. It also explains how desire for sexual intercourse can be distorted and used to devastate humankind in this way.
Here is Wikipedia’s writeup on the poem …

“The Law of One” also speaks of this demonic ploy here:

Often the form of ‘sexual intercourse’ used by the demon realm is ‘satellite rape’ or astral suggestions of rape, through obsession. This is one reason why demons are referred to as the ‘powers of the air’ … They use telepathy to create the sense of lust being fulfilled ‘in the air’.

This is indicated in artwork as beings called incubi, male demon lovers; and succubi, female demon lovers …

Thus, it is very important to take a grounded approach to sexuality, and to distinguish between mental suggestion, and the real-world fulfillment of the sexual urge.
Pornography, for instance, steers a person towards ‘satellite rape’ by the ‘powers of the air’. This is because it starts a person daydreaming about the act of sex, instead of fulfilling his human needs in a physical context. Thus it’s best to stay away from pornography, and from sexual daydreams, but rather to make sexual joy a part of one’s life on the physical plane.
Sometimes black magickers abstain completely from the act of sex, so as to increase their magical powers. This is a big mistake, as they are getting those powers ‘on loan’ from the ‘powers of the air’. Such ‘deals with the devil’ result in a fate similar to that expressed in the above song about the ‘Daemon Lover’.
That this song is most likely quite ancient, indicates the importance of the legend to humankind’s safety and sanctuary here on Earth.
In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
