Decide on a word that resembles what you want to accomplish, such as LOVE, HEALTH, or PROTECTION. Then, starting from the first letter trace the letters of your word in a straight line from one to another, ending with the last letter of your word. If you want, you can connect the last line back to the first to create a closed shape, or leave it as an open one.

When you’re finished, you have a simple sigil then can be etched into a candle and burnt down, or you can write it down on paper and add it to a small bottle or pouch with herbs.

Zodiac Wheel.

The Zodiac is an imaginary belt of the Heavens, within which are the apparent paths of the Sun, Moon and Planets. The belt contains twelve Constellations of Stars (hence the twelve Signs of the Zodiac) and each of the twelve Signs are governed by one of these four Elements: Earth, Fire, Air or Water. Astrology plays a big part in the Zodiac, as it is the actual study of influence that the Sun, Moon, Stars and Planets have on an individual at the time of their Birth (which creates all the Sun/Moon/Rising Signs of the Zodiac).


The Wonderful Color Wheel: Part 1 

How many ways can you reshuffle the rainbow? Three, as a matter of fact, if modern color theory is to be believed: Pantone numbers for print designers and brand managers; hex, RGB, and CMYK values for web designers; and CIELAB and CIECAM02 color models for the scientific community. But while the science of color models is largely settled, all that rigorous theory still doesn’t quite squeeze out the sense of fallible humanity underpinning the history of the color wheel.

Cycle Of Eternity.

“Like a Circle in a Spiral
Like a Wheel within a Wheel
Never Ending or Beginning
On an Ever-Spinning Reel.”

Symbolically, the ever-repeating Cycle of Eternity is represented by the Ouroboros. The Ouroboros is a Serpent in the shape of a Circle that is devouring its own tail. As the Serpent continues to devour itself, the size of its Circle spirals into smaller and smaller Circles. Once the Serpent completely devours itself, that particular Cycle (Circle) is ended and a new Cycle is ready to begin.

In Alchemy, the Ouroboros is a Sigil. Swiss psychologist Carl Jung saw the Ouroboros as an Archetype and the basic Mandala of Alchemy. The alchemists, who in their own way knew more about the Nature of the Individuation process than we moderns do, expressed this paradox through the Symbol of the Ouroboros, the Snake that eats its own tail. The Ouroboros has been said to have a meaning of Infinity or Wholeness. In the age-old image of the Ouroboros lies the thought of devouring oneself and turning oneself into a circulatory process, for it was clear to the more astute alchemists that the Prima Materia of the Art was man himself.

The Ouroboros is a dramatic Symbol for the Integration and Assimilation of the Opposite, i.e. of the Shadow. This ‘feed-back’ process is at the same time a Symbol of Immortality, since it is said of the Ouroboros that he slays himself and brings himself to Life, fertilizes himself and gives Birth to himself. He symbolizes the One, who proceeds from the clash of opposites, and he therefore constitutes the secret of the Prima Materia which unquestionably stems from Man’s Unconscious. Ultimately, Cycle of Eternity s a Symbol of the Eternal Unity of all things, the Cycle of Birth and Death from which the alchemist sought Release and Liberation.
