A Witch's Guide to Crafting Magick Symbols
Author: Laura Tempest Zakroff
Sigils are powerful magical marks, designed to invoke spirits and deities, influence people, provide instructions, or designate sacred places. This book breathes fresh life into the contemporary practice of sigil magick, showing you an innovative approach to using marks, lines, dots, and colors for manifesting your will in the world.
Learn how to create designs that best support your intention by exploring the traditional and contemporary meanings of shapes, the power of numbers in creating motifs and patterns, the meaning of letters and language, and the use of color. Sigil Witchery includes tips for choosing locations, materials, and surfaces, as well as important considerations for permanent, temporary, and wearable sigils. Sample scenarios, exercises, examples, and techniques for hand-drawing lines will help you build skills and insights as you develop your own style of sigil magick.
