Sigil Magic

A sigil is a symbol created for a specific magical purpose. The idea behind creating a sigil is that while your conscious mind can get bogged down in internal chatter, an abstract symbol can be recognised and reacted to by your subconscious mind. The sigil is a way of programming your unconscious mind to work on a particular problem. You could create a sigil to help you lose weight or to gain confidence – it’s entirely personal and can be as simple or as complicated as you like.

Sigil magic is the act of creating and charging a sigil to accomplish a specific goal. You can use the techniques I’ve outlined below on their own, or you can encorporate sigils into another kind of magic like carving sigils into candles for candle magic.

Signs and Symbols

I have used quite a few Pagan and Wiccan symbols on this website already; the pentacle, the elements, the zodiac signs and the Elder Futhark rune stones. This page is for any other signs and symbols you may find useful.

Harry Potter

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Love him or hate him, chances are you know who Harry Potter is. You’ve probably read at least one of the books or seen one of the films. JK Rowling could never have anticipated the fantastic success her book about The Boy Who Lived would achieve, or the controversy that would arise from its depictions of witches, wizards and magic.

For those of you just joining us after a 15-year-long nap, Harry Potter was first introduced to the world on the 30th June 1997 in “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone”. The books have gone on to enjoy worldwide success and critical acclaim, selling over 450 million copies and being translated into 67 different languages.

A positive affirmation

An affirmation is a statement or declaration of belief, and it can be positive or negative. You probably make several affirmations a day without realising it, and you may be influencing your own state of mind entirely unintentionally.

Have you ever thought to yourself, “I can’t do this” or “I’m no good at that”? Those are negative affirmations! The more you repeat these statements to yourself, the more you internalise them. You create a barrier in your own mind because you come to genuinely believe what you have been telling yourself.

Regional Links

The links on this page are to websites which have a specific regional focus. They may be the internet home of a group working in a specific area, or just be aimed at Pagans from a particular city, state or country. Hopefully you can use these links to find other Pagans near to you, but even websites for groups on the other side of the world can have useful, interesting information.
