Description: Aamon (also Amon and Nahum), in demonology, is a Marquis of Hell who governs forty infernal legions. Aamon is a demon and the Grand Marquis of Hell and the seventh spirit of the Goetia.
The Demon Amon is a Fallen Angel and the seventh of the 72 Spirits of Solomon. In Hell, Amon is a strong and powerful marquis. He appears first as a wolf, but on a magician’s command, he will take on the shape of a man with a raven’s head and dog’s teeth.
He accurately tells about the past and the future. He makes men and women fall in love with each other, and he settles disputes between friends and enemies. He rules over 40 Legions of Demons.
“Amon or Aamon, is a great and mightie marques, and commeth abroad in the likenes of a woolfe, having a serpents taile, spetting out and breathing flames of fier; when he putteth on the shape of a man, he sheweth out dogs teeth, and a great head like to a mightie raven; he is the strongest prince of all other, and understandeth of all things past and to come, he procureth favor, and reconcileth both freends and foes, and ruleth fourtie legions of divils.”
Collin de Plancy took the artistic liberty of compressing Amon’s two forms into one.He should have been represented as either a fire-breathing wolf with a snake for a tail,or as a man with a raven’s head that had doglike teeth in its beak. Demons often appear in two primary forms, the first of which is wilder and more frightening, but the second, human with only a few bestial traits. It is up to the magician to command the evoked Demon to put on its human guise so that communication with it can be made more easily, and with less risk of injury. You can see this dual appearance of Demons in the two images of the Demon Camio.
History: The names Aamon and Amon come from the god Amun or from the god Baal-hamon of Carthage. Nahum means “who induces to eagerness”.
According to the Dictionnaire Infernal by Collin de Plancy, he commands forty legions of demons and carries the title of prince. He is also an entity many looked to reconcile friends and foes, and procure love for those seeking it. The Egyptians viewed Amon or Amun as their supreme God; they represented him with the blue skin, in a rather human form.
He was written about by Johann Wier in 1583 in the Pseudomonarchia daemonum.
“Amon, or Aamon, is a great and mighty marques, and commeth abroad in the likeness of a Wolf, having a serpents tail, [vomiting] flames of fire; when he putteth on the shape of a man, he sheweth out dogs teeth, and a great head like to a mighty [night hawk]; he is the strongest prince of all other, and understandeth of all things past and to come, he procureth favor, and reconcileth both friends and foes, and rule forthy legions of devils.”
And much later by S. L. MacGregor Mathers in the Goetia
“The Seventh Spirit is Amon. He is a Marquis great in power, and most stern. He appeareth like a Wolf with a Serpent’s tail, vomiting out of his mouth flames of fire; but at the command of the Magician he putteth on the shape of a Man with Dog’s teeth beset in a head like a Raven; or else like a Man with a Raven’s head (simply). He telleth all things Past and to Come. He procureth feuds and reconcileth controversies between friends. He governeth 40 Legions of Spirits. His Seal is this which is to be worn as aforesaid, etc.”

WORKING WITH THIS DEMON:
This demon may be summoned for divination purposes as he is able to both discern the past and predict the future accurately.
This demon can also be conjured up to bring love to people who seek it. Similarly, he can case relationships to flourish at the request of the witch. Furthermore, this is the same for both men and women and for this reason, I recommend him over several others.
The demon may also be summoned so as to reconcile enemies and presumably create alliances – something that was especially important in Solomon’s time.
SUMMONING OF AMON
The witch should prepare well emotionally and psychologically. The witch could for instance exercise through meditation.
The sigil of Amon should be conspicuous as well as protections from malicious attacks such as a magic circle and the triangle of Solomon.
This demon can be evoked through praying to Lucifer / Satan in the following prayer:
“Lord Satan, by your grace, grant me, I pray thee the power to conceive in my mind and to execute that which I desire to do, the end which I would attain by thy help, O Mighty Satan, the one True God who livest and reignest forever and ever. I entreat thee to inspire (Amon) to manifest before me that he/she may give me true and faithful answer, so that I may accomplish my desired end, provided that it is proper to his/her office. This I respectfully and humbly ask in Your Name, Lord Satan, may you deem me worthy, Father.”
Upon the completion of one’s request, it is imperative to fulfill one’s end of the bargain before dismissing the demon respectfully.
This demon is able to foretell the future and discern the past. He is thus summoned for the purposes of divination by witches.
Amon also has the ability to cause re-conciliatory sentiments to foes as well as inducing love among two people. This can be especially beneficial in the present day where isolation and loneliness are real time issues.
Additionally, he can also reinforce relationships and is thus summoned for all these purposes.
Like the rest of the Goetic Demons, care must be taken when dealing with this demon. It is noteworthy that this demon has an indifferent predisposition towards mankind – neither hate nor love. This is coupled with an independent will which demands respect on the part of the conjuror.
Like the rest of the Goetic Demons, it is necessary to accord the demon the prerequisite respect throughout all dealings. It is also necessary that the sigil of the demon remains conspicuous throughout the conjuring.
The demon should be dismissed respectfully upon the completion of the summoning.
The Goetia, a grimoire of ceremonial magic, contains a list of 72 demons known as the Goetic spirits. Among these spirits is Amon, a powerful demon who has intrigued and captivated the minds of occultists and scholars alike. In this essay, we will explore the nature of Amon, his characteristics, and the significance of his presence in the Goetia. Amon, also known as Aamon or Ammon, is a demon mentioned in various occult texts, including the Lesser Key of Solomon, which is the most well-known grimoire containing the Goetia. He is described as a Marquis of Hell, with the ability to shape-shift into various forms, including that of a wolf with a serpent's tail. Amon is said to have the power to reveal hidden knowledge, control the weather, and provide guidance in matters of love and relationships. 1. Amon's Power of Transformation: One of the most intriguing aspects of Amon is his ability to shape-shift. This power allows him to adapt to different situations and deceive those who summon him. For example, Amon may appear as a friendly and helpful spirit, only to later reveal his true nature and intentions. This power of transformation serves as a cautionary reminder that not everything is as it seems, and one must exercise caution when dealing with the supernatural. 2. Amon's Knowledge and Guidance: Amon is known for his ability to reveal hidden knowledge and provide guidance in matters of love and relationships. This aspect of his character makes him a sought-after spirit for those seeking answers and advice. For instance, individuals may summon Amon to gain insight into their romantic relationships or to uncover secrets that have been concealed from them. Amon's ability to provide guidance in these matters demonstrates his role as a mediator between the human and spiritual realms. 3. Amon's Control over the Weather: Another notable attribute of Amon is his control over the weather. This power is often associated with his ability to bring forth rain or storms. In ancient times, the ability to manipulate the weather was considered a divine gift, and Amon's control over such natural forces further emphasizes his power and influence. This aspect of Amon's character highlights his connection to the elemental forces of nature and his ability to manipulate them for his own purposes. Examples: To illustrate the significance of Amon's presence in the Goetia, let us consider a historical example. In the 16th century, during the height of the witch trials, individuals accused of practicing witchcraft were often forced to confess their alleged crimes. In some cases, these confessions were obtained through the use of torture. It is believed that Amon, among other Goetic spirits, was invoked during these interrogations to extract information or force confessions from the accused. This example demonstrates the belief in Amon's power and his association with obtaining hidden knowledge. Amon, a powerful demon mentioned in the Goetia, possesses a range of intriguing characteristics and abilities. His power of transformation, knowledge and guidance, and control over the weather make him a significant figure in the realm of occultism. Amon's presence in the Goetia serves as a reminder of the complexities and mysteries of the supernatural world, urging individuals to approach it with caution and respect. Whether one views Amon as a malevolent force or a source of hidden wisdom, his inclusion in the Goetia continues to fascinate and intrigue those who delve into the realms of magic and the occult.
