In a blend of old and new, from the Occult, Paranormal, Esoteric, Spiritual, Supernatural, Weird Science and High Strangeness realms, this week I have been mostly watching, reading, writing and listening to…
To be honest, so much has been written about Sigils that I am not sure I can add anything of any shiny newness to the topic. But, a Magick Primer wouldn’t really be complete without some mention of Sigils. So instead of a big complicated treatise on the subject, I will try to make it as clear and precise as possible and then link you to some good resources if you want to delve a bit deeper into the area.
WHAT IS A SIGIL?
A sigil is a Magick symbol you create that changes the world around you in a predetermined way.
If you have been following the blog over the past few weeks you will know that I have been on a bit of a quest recently. It all started when I wondered why some of my Magick ended up getting me the exact opposite of what I wanted or often made the situation worse. After that lots of you suggested that I look into the idea of maybe being cursed, hexed or otherwise negatively contaminated. So, I did some banishing rituals and finally wound up doing an Uncrossing ritual. In the end though, it became clear to me, that my problem was me, and not some malignant outside force or demonic oppression. If I was going to find resolution to all this, I would have to look within rather than without.
So, in my last post I talked about the experience of sometimes getting the exact opposite of what you magicked for and discussed a bit about this has manifested in my life. One of the things that I disregarded as a factor was me being Cursed or Crossed or otherwise Hexed. However, as a number of people mentioned to me that I shouldn’t dismiss this idea so quickly, I said, yea why not? let’s look at this thing and see what I can do about it.
