🕯️(From “The Goetia: The Lesser Key of Solomon the King” (1904) Written by SL MacGregor Mathers:🕯️ The Second Spirit is a Duke called Agreas, or Agares. He is under the power of the East, and appears in the form of a fair old man, mounted on a crocodile, carrying a goshawk in his fist, and yet smooth in appearance. He makes them run still, and brings back the fugitives. He teaches all languages or languages currently. He has power also to destroy both Spiritual and Temporal Dignities, and to cause Earthquakes. He was of the Order of Virtues. He has under his rule 31 Legions of Spirits. And this is his Seal or Character which thou shalt wear as the Lamen before thee.)
🕯️(From the Luciferian Goetia (2007) – Written by Michael Ford:🕯️ “A spirit that allows the understanding of languages and interpretation, Agares is a spirit that accelerates the perception of languages, communication – magical or not. In drawing my Sethanic/Shadow alphabet (see Austin Spare's Alphabet of Desire), I made silent invocations to Agares – to accelerate communication from the subconscious to the conscious. Earthquakes are the symbol of a strong will and individual presence. 31 legions of spirits assist in such operations.”)
🕯️(Daemonolatria Goetia (2010) – Written by S. Connolly:🕯️ “It teaches languages, destroys dignities, finds fugitives, causes earthquakes. It is said that you must use your secrecy after the job in question. Seek Agares for wisdom in friendship and to grow your garden. He also gives advice on financial matters in relation to the projects.”)
🕯️(From the “Pseudomonarchia Daemonum” (1583) Written by Johann Weyer (Johann Wier):🕯️ The first duke under the power of the east is called Agares, he presents himself as a fair old man, mounted on a crocodile and carrying a falcon in his fist; he now teaches all manners of life, he brings back all that run away, and makes those that stand still to run; he casts down all dignities he makes earthquakes, [lit. “and makes the spirits of the earth dance”] and is of the order of virtues, having thirty-one legions under his regiment.)
🕯️(From the “Dictionnaire Infernal” (1863 edition) Written by Jacques Auguste Simon Collin de Plancy:🕯️ Aguares, of the order of virtues that governs thirty-one legions, appears mounted on a crocodile and carrying a hawk. He is said to make deserters return and can cause enemies to flee. He can exalt people, teach all languages, and make earth spirits dance.)
Agares sitting on his demon beast
Agares is a duke who is under the power of the East, and appears in the form of a handsome man mounted on a crocodile, with a falcon in his fist, or else in the form of a beautiful woman with blond hair. He has the power to grant swiftness, teach languages, cause tremors and break dignities. He also brings back things that are gone. This daemon was of the order of Virtues, and governs 31 legions of spirits.
ANALYSIS: Agares presents himself in a friendly manner to those who show an interest in acquiring knowledge, but is capable of deluding and manipulating those who turn to him only for power. The symbolism of his image mounted on a crocodile and with a hawk in his hands shows his power to know things and see beyond reach (the hawk, an animal that observes the world from above, with swift flight and agile boats over prey on earth ), solve problems quickly, control passions and tensions caused by insecurity, doubt and worry.
