How to do a sigil

Yes hello I am a Alex and this is a thing of how I do a witchcraft. If you do this a certain way feel free to not listen. If you don’t like the way I do it lit, donut do it this way :3 that is all

What is a sigil?

“an inscribed or painted symbol considered to have magical power.” -google
aka a digital or physical painting/drawing/craving/or anything with a design that is given a certain meaning by the person who made it.

What are sigils used for?

The maker draws a doodle (more or less) and charges it with their intent. 

Can anybody make one?

Anyone :3

How complicated does it have to be/look like?

It shouldn’t be that hard or pretty, as long as it pleases you it is fine

What materials do you gotta use?

Whatever you got. digital or physical. Paper and pencil/pen/blood/wax/anything - Wood drawing things/knife to carve
Literally a n y t h i n g

Do sigils have to be aesthetically pleasing?

Nope :3 just has to have meaning it you/someone you’re making it for

Do you have to be a witch to use sigils?

No you don’t. It’s up to you and your beliefs 

Where can you put sigils?

*cracks knuckles* Shoes, binders, behind phone cases, under tables, under chairs, on your nails with sharpies then put nail polish over it, in your car, in a pillow, draw them on yourself (thighs, stomachs, arms, whatever), clothes tags, out of ketchup on your food, literally anything and everything you can think of

Can I cut out a sigil for a keychain or somethin?

Yes, and you can put them on your alter, hang em in a car, etc 

Can you use sigils in spells?

Yes you can, just like tarot cards and oracle cards

Can you have two different sigils for the same thing?

Yes you can (ex.  if you have one for happiness, but want to make another one for happiness, you can draw a different design) (ex. 2- if you see someone make one to ward off depression and want to make one for the same reason, you can make one but with a different design)

How do you “activate” a sigil?

As soon as you draw it, it’s activated. However if you want to give it a little umph, you can bury them, burn them, submerge it in water, etc. If burning you can wafe (is that even a word) an object through the smoke to charge it with your intent

Are sigils used for cursing/hexing too?

Sure can be, up to you and your beliefs/craft

What all can you use sigils for?

Everything. happiness, good luck, help to study, anti*illness*, help your plants grow, help your phone battery last longer, help Kendall to not be a bitch, the list is endless

And finally, how do you a sigil?

  1. Understand what you want the sigil for, I would suggest a simple one at first so I’m going to explain how to do it for happiness
  2. Gather your resources, again I’m doing a easy one so I am going to “use” a pencil and paper
  3. Get in the mindset of the intent you are going for, so this one is happy. Maybe do some stretching before and clear your mind
  4. Now that you’re all razzle dazzled in a happy mood, close you eyes and thing, what shape in happiness to you right in that moment. Do you thing it’s a bunch of lines or even as simple as a heart? Thing about it
  5. Now if you have trouble with step 4 (like I do, ADHD is a lil bitch) play some music that makes you happy or a movie. Does Frozen make you happy? Maybe draw a lil snowflake
  6. Now as fun as it is to draw an elaborate sigil, remember, this can go into your Grimoire or BoS for you to copy onto other things 

The most important thing now,

Magic requires consent

Please don’t put “Make Justin love me”

Instead you can put “Attract someone who would love me that has the same traits as Justin”


Stay safe beans and happy sigiling!

(is that a word)

Witch Tip ✒🕯🔮

Use a wax warmer to melt colored wax, then get a pen, pencil or quill to dip in the wax so that you can draw sigil, names, or symbols onto other candles prior to burning them. Practice writing out your symbols before starting on your candle, as wax dries fast.

Wax Seals 101

Someone on either Tumblr or Instagram asked me for a basic guide to my wax seals, so here it is! 😊 Let’s start with the supplies you’ll need: a candle, a source of fire, wax, a metal seal and a metal spoon. You’ll also need your envelope, letter or whatever it is you’re sealing, of course!

Place the wax in the spoon and light the candle of course. The idea is to heat the spoon evenly and melt all the wax. You can use crayons for wax, but they’re a lot less viscous than wax made for seals. Too much wax is better than too little, and here I’ve chopped off a piece of wax stick that’s about 0.75 cm long.

If it starts to bubble, the wax is getting too hot. You’ll get this heating technique down, so just have patience. It’s pretty forgiving.

Quickly pour the wax where you’d like to seal. 

Gently lower your metal seal into the puddle and let it sit for a couple seconds.

Voilà!

What started out as me buying one or two aqua green coloured pens because they were too pretty to resist, ended up as a project haha!
When i bought some of these online i seriously wondered how odd the person packaging my order thought i was for buying all the same colour stuff ahahaha!
