The most common type of urban warlock is the solitary witch. Submerged in the individuality of modern city life, hidden between the crowd, they discover
their thaumaturgical abilities and learn as much as they can about the arcane and the occult. They usually protect themselves with glyphes and sigils all over their bodies, and avoid any kind of contact with the covens, cults or big gangs of witches and mages that spread out in the big cities. They’re slippery and reticent beings, reserved souls and wanderers.
This is the first of a new series I’ll be working on and experimenting with!
Similar to sigils but also much like servitors, these glyphs can be used in a variety of ways. Your “patronus” doesn’t have to be this animal for you to use it, but it’s best if you either have a tie to it, it makes you happy, or its particular brand of magic will be useful in what you’re trying to achieve.
How to use as a patronus:
*For banishing negative thoughts and emotions and chasing away depression*
-Focus your eyes on the image.
-Bring to mind your happiest memory, and hold it there. Imagine as you do that you are being filled with a sensation of warmth and/or a bright glow as the memory fills your awareness
-Once you feel you’ve been fully imbued with the light/warmth of your memory, touch or point to the patronus glyph and say, whisper, or think “expecto patronum” or whatever other activating phrase resonates with you.
-Imagine the patronus glowing, flaring to life, and physically chasing away your negative emotions (which could be visualized as dementors, if it helps).
Another way to use this glyph is to invoke it as a magical servitor or a familiar, in which case choose whatever activation method you prefer, or use the previously described steps but replace visualizing your happiest memory with visualizing your intent, and your servitor being fed and empowered by carrying it out.
Each Elemental Servitor Glyph represents a servitor spirit I’ve created as part of my personal UPG, but anyone is free to call upon them! These servitors are meant to help boost the magickal energy of the elements they represent, as well as assist in calling on the four directions when casting a circle.
