Shub-Niggurath is a Cthulhuian god known also as the Goat with a Thousand Young. This creature has been associated via astrology and magical symbology with the planet Venus. The Young of Shub-Niggurath is a cult dedicated to the worship of the dark entities of the Cthulhuian Mythos, particularly Shub-Niggurath herself. It was founded in Ecuador during the 1930s by a Japanese mystic known only as Ichiro. While the founder died under mysterious circumstances in 1939, the cult continued. In fact, members of the cult claim Ichiro's spirit still advises them.
