The Thirty-second Spirit is Asmoday, or Asmodai. He is a Great King, Strong, and Powerful. He appeareth with Three Heads, whereof the first is like a Bull, the second like a Man, and the third like a Ram; he hath also the tail of a Serpent, and from his mouth issue Flames of Fire. His Feet are webbed like those of a Goose. He sitteth upon an Infernal Dragon, and beareth in his hand a Lance with a Banner. He is first and choicest under the Power of AMAYMON, he goeth before all other. When the Exorcist hath a mind to call him, let it be abroad, and let him stand on his feet all the time of action, with his Cap or Headdress off; for if it be on, AMAYMON will deceive him and call all his actions to be bewrayed. But as soon as the Exorcist seeth Asmoday in the shape aforesaid, he shall call him by his Name, saying: “Art thou Asmoday?” and he will not deny it, and by-and-by he will bow down unto the ground. He giveth the Ring of Virtues; he teacheth the Arts of Arithmetic, Astronomy, Geometry, and all handicrafts absolutely. He giveth true and full answers unto thy demands. He maketh one Invincible. He showeth the place where Treasures lie, and guardeth it. He, amongst the Legions of AMAYMON governeth 72 Legions of Spirits Inferior. His Seal is this which thou must wear as a Lamen upon thy breast, etc.

Asmodai; A Powerful King

When Aaron C. Donahue evoked and then drew Asmodai in a remote viewing session, there was a pleasant surprise.

Instead of the dark and scowling figure portrayed by ancient magickians who encountered this mighty spirit, Aaron's drawing brought forth a complex entity that looked bright and even happy.

Like most kings from the Goetian forces, there is nothing simple about Asmodai's form. Donahue drew the three heads, that of a bull, a man and a ram, although the face of the man was so slow to form, the remote viewing session was completed before the spirit was completely materialized. Thus the face has an almost skeletal appearance, lacking the flesh that the face would have.

Donahue's drawing also captures the lance, the suggestion of webbed feet, and the serpent's tail said to be part of Asmodai's form. There is a large serpent's head showing directly under the demon which may explain why the old masters thought he sat upon a dragon. Also surprising is the set of bull horns directly over the three joined heads.

This spirit king is so powerful that he was feared, and always highly respected by all who ever dared to evoke him. It was said that he can spit fire from his mouth.

Old writings say that Asmodai is a master of mind control. He has the power to turn those who serve him into beasts for short periods of they ask, he can locate treasure, heal, the start wars. This mighty spirit also is an alchemist, beast master, mechanician, merchant and navigator.

Other names for this spirit in Hebrew mythology are Asmodeos, Asmodeius, Asmoday, and Ashmedai. He is believed to be the undisputed and infinitely evil king of the demons. He was said to be the son of Naamah and the husband of Lilith although that might be disputed.

The Hebraic name Ashmedai, which means destroyer or evil spirit, is believed to have been taken from the Persian words Aesham-dev or Aeshma, the demon of concupiscence and wrath. In the Testament of Solomon, Asmodeus reveals himself as the demon pledged to plot against the newly wedded.

Whether he did all of these evil deeds is not known. What is clear, however, is that Asmodai is a spirit well known to many ancient cultures. He is a powerful spirit and his presence in the world once again is going to be felt by everybody.
