On MetaSigils

by , under General Sigils

What happens when you combine multiple sigils, fusing related ideas into a new and complex symbol? You create a “metasigil” or “meta-sigil,” This simply means a sigil that represents other sigils.

For this sigil, we’ve combined four recent sigils into something new. It represents the statement: “I will be creatively bountiful, financially independent, intellectually stimulated and emotionally fulfilled.”

“I will be creatively bountiful, financially independent, intellectually stimulated and emotionally fulfilled.”

“I will be creatively bountiful, financially independent, intellectually stimulated and emotionally fulfilled.”

It’s important to understand that there’s nothing inherently more powerful about a metasigil. It’s a tool for focusing intention, just like any other sigil. They’re useful for distilling several related ideas into a single, unified sigil.

For instance, “I will be in a relationship with a wonderful, emotionally open man with steel blue eyes and blond hair,” contains a huge amount of very specific information. Combining that with “I will marry an honest, dedicated and faithful man who will be a wonderful father to our children” and “I will give birth to a happy, healthy baby girl,” into a single sigil is tricky at best. It’s much easier to make sigil out of each idea, and then recombine those sigils in a new sigil creation ritual.

As with sigils in general, there is no universal agreement on metasigil activation rituals. One school of thought is that the various contributing sigils should be treated as just another step in the creation process, like a chaos magick version of a Merkle Tree. In that view, only the metasigil itself would need a ritual activation.

Another perspective holds that the metasigil should only be activated after each of the contributing sigils have been activated. The idea here is that the rituals build upon each other, gathering power at each step before being bound together. Even the specifics of the ritual itself is a matter of debate, as some feel that a more elaborate and complex activation is called for.

Our advice: Try lots of different approaches, and stick with what feels right for you.
