Meet Venus Satanas
How Satanism Found Me
I discovered Satanism at the local library back in 1992, when, in the reference section when I was looking for books on art, I found the hardcover edition of the Church of Satan written by Blance Barton. Something called to me and I began to investigate Satanism that year. I was fortunate, however not having to grow up in a strictly Christian household, where I was free to learn about Satanism. I created my first dedication ritual that year and swore my allegiance to the powers of Darkness, and I haven't looked back since. Satan has been a guiding force in my life and to this day, I am still proud to be a Satanist.
My Career as an Artist
For several years I worked as a street artist in St. Augustine, Florida. During those eyars they allowed artists to draw and paint on the street, and I made my living selling portraits and wildlife art. I enjoed working with color pencil, pastel graphite, and charcoal in a realist style. It wasn't until he late 90's that they outlawed street artists, amd so I had to find a new line of work. My career as a street artist in St. Augustine ended with the unfair supreme court decision against the artists of St. Augustine in 2001 - stating that music and art could not be displayed or created in public within the city.
My Career in Satanism
Many years had passed since my Satanic dedication, and I found a new outlet for creativity in writing. I created my website, SpiritualSatanist.com to share ideas and experiences with other Satanists and seekers of the left hand path. I also started a video channel at YouTube in 2007, with many subscribers who are interested in learning about the Occult and Satanism. To learn more about me and my interests in Satanism, visit my Interviews with Venus Satanas page.
From this I created an anthology video, "Spiritual Satanism", and the research book "The Al-Jilwah for Satanists", both published by Lulu. And, in 2009 I performed an "Evocation of Infernal Ones" for the CD, "Masters of Invocation", produced by Jordan James. I also contributed my story about my life as a Satanist for the anthology book, "Woman's Voices in Magic", published by Imannion Press in 2010. Find out more about these projects on my Satanic Media page.
It is my hope that through my videos and writing that others can learn about Satanism from an objective point of view. I do not claim to be a 'priestess' nor do I have a church, but those that have found enlightenment in my writing have perhaps found their way in the dark.
