Sigil Creation with Planetary Magic Squares

Reflections from the Black Stone

Building off the introduction to Planetary Magic Squares posted earlier, this is an example on how to use them to create sigils to manifest a desired outcome. The Grant Morrison video, I posted a while back provides a great introduction into sigil magic. At its core is the concept of abstracting a directed intent into a symbol that effects the practitioner at a subconscious level. There are many ways to create sigils and perform sigil magic, what I outline here is a method that I have used and continue to use to great success.

Click here for trailer!!! Click on the image to see our trailer!!!

Blending together the essences of Chaos Magic and modern Paganism, this book records the emergence of the new tradition of Chaos Craft.

Some of which, previously unavailable, comprise the secret rituals of this unashamedly syncretic form of occultism.

The potion you may sample inside is infused with the flavours of Gurdjieff, mindfulness meditation, trance-bodywork, entheogenics, Wiccan and Sabbatic Craft. The mixture has been diligently stirred widdershins for two years as the Wheel of the Year cycled through the Colours of Chaos.

The explorations, the questions, the techniques and reflections presented here are part of an ongoing magical work. Like the figure of Baphomet hirself (patron deity of Chaos Craft), the elixir pouring from this cauldron is redolent with the rich alchemical…
