Working with Sigil Magic
Posted 10 August 2017 - 04:36 PM
Thanks Ravenshaw. Do you hit till it's powered up, then when you feel it's charged destroy it?
I'm glad I found this thread, feeling quite motivated to make a few sigils but give them proper thought and care this time, then jumble them in a bag and pick one at random in a couple of weeks. My worry is that I'm not very artistic at the drawing side of things. Might try the grid method rather than drawing - anyone found it useful? I'll report back on what methods work for me down the line, in case it helps anyone else.

W.I.P.S. - In my opinions Gordon White's methods of sigil magic are well worth a look.
Mods, I'll include a link to the relevant page of his blog here, I hope that this is ok?

Great page Thunderbolt - thanks for sharing. I love stuff that's informative AND funny. I liked Phil Hine's Condensed Chaos for the same reasons - it's very serious about the magic but he doesn't take himself too seriously in the book.

I enjoy his style of writing too
On the occasions that I employ sigil magic, his methods are generally what I employ. Case in point . . .
Today I was on a school trip in a bus - the kids were writing on the fogged up windows so I joined them - made 'safe journey' and 'quiet children' sigil and flicked a bit of energy into them. Got almost to our destination and then were stopped by police and turned back to school due to a gas leak.
Back to school safely, so perhaps they were working (lets face it the 'quiet children' was up against it from the beginning!)

love sigil magic but my artist brain makes me pull out the ruler and charcoal every time! i put a lot of energy into just creating a sigil and i haven't had a backfire in all the years of working with them so i think I'm doing pretty well. my favorite method of "deployment" is fire and ash but thats not something you can just do in the middle of a restaurant

Kaenoir what do you mean fire and ash? Burning? (The ash bit is confusing me )
