Happy New Year
Hopefully this year will suck a little less than the last

badmanblogging-deactivated20120 asked: I am attracted to a woman who is in a very toxic relationship. We are just friends, nothing more. I'd like to be more than a friend, and I think that's possible. Would it be wrong to cast a sigil to have her become attracted to me? Not to change her will, but to enhance feelings she may have for me if they are there.
Joran clears up thoughts about some of the...
joranl: I noticed some clarification was needed concerning my last submission. The only reason the swastika’s are there is because of their runic purpose. 2 crossed Sowilu’s are drawn in light of the Sun Solstice, in honour of the Sun. The only reason these were drawn in what seems like a Nazi-fashioned way, is because they were supposed to. I found them to fit together perfectly...
Handmade magickal chest with sigils
hauntedbythelight: My newest artwork (still in progress) Handmade and handpainted magickal chest, dedicated to the power of the sun and fire. I’m gonna design a similar one dedicated to the power of moon and water. It provides a lot of magickal effects which I’m gonna explain when I post the pictures of the finished chests. I’m planning to sell them as limited editions, I’m probably gonna...
hauntedbythelight asked: Hey, I still haven't find out, how I can answer to your questions in my subs, so I do it here, maybe you can copy it to the sub. I'm not quite sure if it's an automatic drawing, every time I draw my sigils I'm in a state of trance and some things always happen on their own, sometimes it feels like someone telling me how to draw it. So not the classical automatic drawing but...
hauntedbythelight: Magickal sigil to increase health and the financial situation, it also provides protection, luck and improves love. Acrylic paint on drawing cartboard, tiny size. _______ This is so rad! I love so many things about this. The yellow bits look like automatic drawing; are they? I’ve been reading into Sacred Geometry lately and I can see some of the symbolism here....
If you submit something to my website, I’m (probably) going to provide commentary on it. If there is a lack of clarification on the use of recognizable symbols, I will use my best judgement on what it means. If you’d like to correct me in a constructive way, please do so.
bringoutyerdead asked: Not necessarily because there's a swastika in Joran's work, there has to be any Nazi connection. The swastika is an ancient symbol present in numerous and diverse cultures around the world, including the cultures of India, Asia, the Middle East, Europe and North America. The Nazis misused this symbol. It's possible there is a Nazi connection in his work, but it would surprise me,...

Name sigil by hauntedbythelight
Sigil of my name. I was a little paranoid one could use it against me, so protection is included… ;) ______ Aha, now that’s smart. Some one on here mentioned how it was stupid to make a sigil of one’s name and put it out there. See? This is a genius, here. Thank you for the sub!
Haven of Light
Acrylic paint on drawing cartboard with a peace of mandrake root. Provides saftey of a house, turns it into a place of pure light which is also assigned to everyone inside this house. Noone not invited can enter anymore, nothing inside will be secret anymore to the person who owns it, nothing happening inside will leave this house. http://magic-komplex.deviantart.com/#/d4j8i1w ...
"Joyful Abandon: Chaos Magic" (And my reaction) →
lazyyogi: Once upon a time, I was a magician. It’s a funny story and I’m sure I’ll write about it sometime. But the way I ended up on the spiritual path was by starting with the occult. Throughout junior high, I experimented with things like wicca, satanism, druidry, shamanism, vodou, and other such… The thing that most people mistake about Chaotes (at least the ones I know, and I...
automatickafka asked: and you can also embark on creating your own or spreading mine across the internet as i post them and if you do art perhaps incorporate the sigils i'm producing into your own work. All of these sigils are about more massive concepts, not winning the lottery but progressing as a whole. you in?
automatickafka asked: I'm glad you are into the idea. The project as I'm calling it now is literally the concept fo "trends as weapons" too many people, when making sigils, are emulating something else still. It defeats the purpose of chaos magic and while it may work. It's not massive enough, it's working for personal goal. So over the next year I'm going to be doing 365 sigils. And...
‘Sigil’ as a word is out of date. All this magic stuff needs new terminology...– Grant Morrison (via thenewabnormal)
KitschChaos - Sigil Magic? But I can't draw!
I often find myself envious of people who can draw and come up with elaborate looking symbols and things like that. So much that it does inhibit my creativity out of fear that it won’t be as good as some one else’s. What I love about this article is that the person mentions children as being natural magicians. I think this is so because children tend to just act instead of react and...
bornthis-rebel-deactivated20121 asked: What are sigils? Can you please tell me exactly what they are and what to do with them? Thanks a lot. I'm very interested and want to try.

badmanblogging-deactivated20120 asked: I am new to sigils. I understand the concept: simplify the desire, write it down, eliminate duplicate letters/vowels, create the sigil, and charge it. I have a question: Since a sigil is a kind of fire and forget tool, is it recommended to put a drop of blood on it before burning it? Or will that work against the sigil? Regards, Tom
Sumbission from Ethan: For the word prompt
Hypersigil: http://www.fictionpress.com/s/2981100/1/Butterfly Only the first chapter uploaded as of yet. More to come. _________ Hey, this is awesome. I had forgotten about this prompt. If you guys don’t remember either, here it is. Of course all of you are more than welcome to send in stories.

More from Joran about his recent graffiti. On a further note: so far I’ve been a people-magnet the entire weekend. Yesterday I was thinking of some dude that should’ve showed up at the spot as well during a party later that night. The very second I thought of him, he popped up from behind someone’s shoulder. At first it didn’t mean much but right now we’re having a small party with some friends...

solpeth: How does one expect magick to work? If he does not know what he is doing, of course nothing will work. Sceptics have always been able to shun the nature of magick due to their lack of understanding, but the power of magick has always existed; it only takes one with great understanding and… Belief is a tool. Use it.
