2=9 | Drawing A Sigil Using A Magical Square

Agrippa was the first to publish on the usage of Kameas, or Magical Squares, to derive Planetary and Angelic Sigils.  Why use sigils?  Think of sigils as the personal phone numbers for the Angels and Spirits of Intelligence you wish to connect with you when performing planetary-specific magical work.

KAMEA OF LUNA (in Hebrew)

For Theoricus, we will examine how to create a sigil using the Kamea of Luna.  Compare the above Kamea of Luna, transliterated from the assigned Hebrew letters into each letter’s Gematria value.  Below is how the Seal of Luna is derived using the Kamea of Luna.

Going further, kamea sigils can also vary by language. I normally transliterate to Hebrew, which is Agrippa’s method, but magicians also report success with kamea sigils derived from English. Sometimes that can be a better way to go than trying to puzzle out the Hebrew spelling of an English name. In order to employ that method, you number the English letters thus:

The caveat with using Hebrew versus English:  do not mix languages.  Either transliterate your sigils using Hebrew-only, or English-only.

To create your sigil for, say, Gabriel, you need to know the proper Kamea to use.  In this case, the kamea sigil for Gabriel, the angel of the Moon, can be created from the Kamea of Luna, as pictured below.

Basically, the name is the word corresponding to the angel, and the sigil is the shape. Or, more to the point, one shape out of several possibilities.  The process is simple.  First, properly spell GABRIEL in Hebrew.  Next, map each Hebrew letter, as transliterated into Gematria, onto the Kamea.  Beginning letters are denoted by a Circle.  When you arrive at the last letter of the name, you draw a small Bar to “end” the sigil.

You now have yet another reason why you must memorize the various Archangelic, Angelic and Spirits of Intelligence for each of the seven planets.  You do not want to utilize the wrong Kamea when generating your sigils!

What is a Magic Square?

Albrecht Dürer’s Magic Square

A magic square, or kamea, is a representation of spiritual forces in a mathematical format. They are typically arranged in such a way that any row is equal to the sum of any column.
While there are numerous magic squares, this section will deal with only those squares associated with the 7 classical planets. […]

Structure of the Golden Dawn and its Rituals: The Nature, Structure, and Role of the Soul In the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn

The organization of the Golden Dawn and the contents of both its rituals and teachings connect it to the wider phenomena of western esotericism. It was not an isolated organization created in a vacuum but part of a larger tradition of esotericism in Europe dating back to the Renaissance. This connection can be seen by the methods used to bring members into the order and by the symbolism and framework around which the Golden Dawn was organized. By an examination of the complex formed by these, it can be seen that […]

Kabbalah | Why is Yesod Air and Hod Water?

A common query among those working the Golden Dawn system is why the Sephirah Yesod (and Theoricus) is attributed to Air instead of Water (after all, it is linked with the Moon, which affects the tides), and why the Sephirah Hod (and Practicus) is attributed to Water (when it is also assigned to the more intellectual, or airy, planet of Mercury). It almost seems like it’s reversed, an apparent elemental inconsistency.  […]

2=9 | Air Dagger, Fire Wand & Their Reversals

One of my personal magical “pet peeves” is the reversal of the old G.’.D.’. attributions of Air to the Dagger (cutting through the illusions of the mind, etc.) and Fire to the Wand (indicative of the fiery Will, etc.) to Fire for the Dagger and Air for the Wand. This latter approach has been taken up by many Wiccan groups and has been the cause of quite some muddying of attributions, and a lot of confusion therefrom.  […]
