Solstice tree decorations

The Eighth Satanic Statement

For those so disposed, as an interesting idea for the Yule/Solstice tree*, is to add ornaments which represent each of the so-called "Seven Deadly Sins" {"...which all lead to physical, mental, or emotional gratification!", of course}. For instance:

  • Lust: The fascinus, or fascinum. The Winged phallus of Roman derivation. There are genitalia shaped ornaments including the phallus, womb, breasts and nude figurines. Obelisks and pillars offer a bit more of a subtle representation.
  • Gluttony: I have seen comical "bacon ornaments", along with various other food-shaped items, not to mention various candy {'candy canes', for example}. Cornucopias are ideal.
  • Greed: Italian horns, ¢urrency $¥mbo£s, or €oins would be appropriate {even preserved in 'piggy banks' and/or bowls nearby}, as well as cornucopias.
  • Sloth: ? {perhaps a "sloth" ornament?}; otherwise, consider Catism, preferably black feline forms.
  • Wrath: Weapons, warriors, fearsome faces, masks. The Krampus.
  • Envy: Images as wishes towards what one desires and will obtain for the next year.
  • Pride: Tokens of the year's accomplishments, as well as a personal seal, or family crest.

Another option would be to preserve a shelf or small table display with a Sigil of Baphomet or Sabbatic Goat statuette thereon, either surrounded by, or situated with these elements before it, along with a candle. ∞

* An artificial one is recommended for indoors, otherwise a living tree nearby, if possible.
