Sitri As A "Hanged Man"

Sitri Exposes The Sins
Of Church Sexual Suppression
When remote viewer Aaron C. Donahue summoned the Goetian Spirit Sitri there was another surprise.
It was as if this spirit knew he was going to have his picture not only drawn correctly for the first time in history, but that he would be seen by thousands of people via the World Wide Web.
Rather than stand there and have his portrait taken, Sitri decided to make a statement. He presented himself as the Hanged Man, a figure well known to Tarot Card users, with his finger pointing directly downward at the dome of a building that Aaron saw was the Vatican. Surrounding this dome were three structures with upside down crosses on top of them.
You can see Aaron's drawings and his commentary by visiting his web site at:
Notice that Sitri appears in this drawing as the classic image of the alien known as the Grey.
It is obvious that Sitri is telling us something that he thinks is important. But what is this message?
To determine its meaning, we must first go to the root of Sitri, examining what the old magickians had to say about him.
S. L. MacGregor Mathers wrote that Sitri is the 12th spirit listed in the Goetia, and that he rules over 60 legions of spirits. But according to the old stories, Sitri first appears as a leopard's head with gryphon wings, then takes on human form when asked.
Donahue believes these are images used by the spirit to disguise himself. He says the process of remote viewing peals away the layers of disguise used so successfully by the spirits for thousands of years, and allows us to see them as they really are. It is obvious that Sitri knew this, and skillfully used his picture to shock.
Mathers gives yet another clue as to the message Sitri is sending. He said the spirit has "the power to instill love in men and women and to cause them to show themselves naked."  This is behavior condemned by the church, and consequently much of society. It is considered immoral to walk around in public naked and in most countries, you will be arrested for doing it.
The Seagate Adventurers' Guild Beastiary goes one step farther. It declares that "Sitri has the power to enflame men and women with the love of each other and to cause them to show themselves naked and frolic with one another in unseemly ways."
I am reminded here of Crowley's declarations in the Book of the Law: "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law" and "the name of restriction is sin."
Is Sitri portraying himself as the hanged man because he wants us to understand how badly the church has suppressed his freedom of joyful sexual expression? Indeed, he is the perfect example of the bound and tortured slave.
Aaron sees a link between church sexual suppression and the activities of Sitri. He writes in his commentary that "three bodies . . . of this church carry out the affairs of Sitri and it is done by all things related to sexual repression. Sexual repression energizes the church and this energy serves Sitri."
Donahue warns that "those who fall prey to Sitri are systematically consumed by lust and are thereby 'initiated.' Where any imbalance should be known between love and its force of lust, an adjustment will be made . . . "
Donahue continues on to say that "Catholic priests who molest pre-pubescent boys are not the fault of Sitri. This aberrant sexual activity is simply born of sexually repressive Christian doctrine."
