Practical Sigil Magic: Creating Personal Symbols for Success A must read for serious magicians Short yet covers several common sigil related techniques I see some people recommend it for beginners however I disagree I would recommend at least an intermmediate level of knowledge prior to reading Beginner level readers may become bewildered with the author s concise sometimes overly so and even pedagogical approach to the topics The book assumes a level of knowledge about occult topics that I believe could leave some newbies feeling frustrated and ov A must read for serious magicians Short yet covers several common sigil related techniques I see some people recommend it for beginners however I disagree I would recommend at least an intermmediate level of knowledge prior to reading Beginner level readers may become bewildered with the author s concise sometimes overly so and even pedagogical approach to the topics The book assumes a level of knowledge about occult topics that I believe could leave some newbies feeling frustrated and overall detract from the information given The author s writing style borders on pedantic, often explaining topics in what I believe to be an unnecessarily complex fashion I took away a star simply because I found the author s writing style so un user friendly Despite the author s convoluted method of explanation, the book still offered valuable information for anyone hoping to employ sigils in their practice, as well as some interesting ways of looking at the processes from the author s perspective It should be noted that this book seems to be written from the perspective of a practicioner of high magick and as such it may appeal especially to readers in that crowd Readers put off by the often academic approach of high magicians might struggle a bit with this book, as I did It is still worth the labor Overall I would recommend this book to any serious practicioner of the magickal arts I mostly enjoyed the authors approach to working with and creating your own sigils Although this book is written with a non dogmatic approach and some have criticized its lack of emphasis on magical morals those with a solid foundation in ethics should have no problem adapting the systems laid out here into whatever techniques of magic they are familiar with already I did not particularly find his sections on entering a trance state to be useful to myself, in fact they seemed a bit odd and m I mostly enjoyed the authors approach to working with and creating your own sigils Although this book is written with a non dogmatic approach and some have criticized its lack of emphasis on magical morals those with a solid foundation in ethics should have no problem adapting the systems laid out here into whatever techniques of magic they are familiar with already I did not particularly find his sections on entering a trance state to be useful to myself, in fact they seemed a bit odd and morbid for my tastes but nonetheless the bulk material of this text seemed to be as the title stated, a practical way to work with sigils I would also like to note that his attempts to explain how magic itself functions and is activated was interesting and was something I hadn t encountered in the Wicca 101 books I have read in the past Sigil magic, particularly the system developed by the English painter and sorcerer Austin Osman Spare, is one of the most efficient and economical disciplines of magic For the most part, it can be performed without complicated rituals, needs hardly any paraphernalia, is independent of philosophical and dogmatic premises and, due to its simplicity, can be learned easily and quickly Most important of all, none of the magical techniques we know of today is efficient and will give even beginners the immediate chance to convince themselves of its power and their own abilities These reasons alone support a volume like the following to show the possibilities of this discipline and to explain its techniques and its rationale The reader the complete tyro and the advanced practitioner alike will receive an introduction which will accompany him her in his her magical practice for a long time ➮ [Read] ➪ The End (The 30-Day Collective Book 1) By Ellen A.

Probably the most helpful book I ve read on sigil magic If you re interested in sigils or the work of Austin Osman Spare, this book is for you Thanks to this book, planetary cameas finally make sense Likewise, I enjoy the way Frater U.D writes about the occult because he generally takes the psychological reading of the occult sciences in his explanations, which makes the whole thing much easier to understand and accept. One of the first books on sigils that made any sense to me This works, and it s very time effective as well. The 1 5 Star Review is the total of what I have to say about this book, specifically.Caveat This review is historical archival in nature Date read is speculative.This book is one of many books I have read about the occult paganism witchcraft This was the readily available faith in my household as a child Additionally, I worked for a company in this field, 2015 2016, and had to read an ocean of this stuff to do my job.Like televangelists, and snake oil salesman, these publishers prey on the The 1 5 Star Review is the total of what I have to say about this book, specifically.Caveat This review is historical archival in nature Date read is speculative.This book is one of many books I have read about the occult paganism witchcraft This was the readily available faith in my household as a child Additionally, I worked for a company in this field, 2015 2016, and had to read an ocean of this stuff to do my job.Like televangelists, and snake oil salesman, these publishers prey on the vulnerable The authors are mentally ill suffering from magical thinking and delusions Worst of all, most of them can t write worth a damn.Llewellyn Worldwide is the absolute worst on both counts I wouldn t even trust their overpriced CALENDARS to be accurate.These books are also big offenders on the the cultural appropriation front In fact, they re in the running for worst case ever So called eclectic witches steal aspects of other religions and mythology They make it clear that they don t understand them, or feel the need to, before shitting in someone else s bed The publishers authors then profit off this, leaving the reader less smart andbroke The living Venn diagram of demographics for these books would look like this She s a white, American woman She dropped out of college to attend massage cosmetology school Growing up, her strict parents took her to church every Sunday She kissed a girl 10 years ago, and likes Katy Perry To quote Holden from Chasing Amy, Over or underweight people who don t get laid they re our bread and butter Though a copypasta of it, these books never tell you about hermeticism They don t prime you to understand hermeticism Hermeticism, by the way, is also total bullshit It is, at least, historic and seminal in almost all spooky fiction involving rituals or alchemy.If I give one of these books anything above 2 stars, it s a decent example of this type of book It might have a redeeming feature, like reference material for fictional world building Having worked in this field, including sales of these exact books, I can tell you the fix is in, they know it, don t buy this stuff Very thorough I really enjoyed this book It s a very practical discussion of sigil magic, with relatively little theoretical background I got the sense that the author finds endless discussion of how it works to be a bit on the intellectual wankery side of things It was nice to read a magic book that didn t constantly instruct me on morals omg I can probably figure out that cursing isn t nice , and one that talkedabout the real process of doing magicthen its theoretical underpinnings.
