Different methods of sigilization
Let's speak about few different methods of sigilization now. In the
beginning I have mentioned 3 basic methods used in Sigil Magick: Meshing
letters together, pictorial method and automatic drawing. These 3
methods were used by Spare and are commonly used by Sigil Magicians
across the globe. There is nothing wrong with these methods, but we must
understand is that these methods are quite modern. If we go back into the
past, into the history of Magick, we will find much older methods of
sigilization. These methods can also be used in the modern Sigil Magick.
First of all we have the Nine Chambers system. In this system we have a
table with 3 rows and 3 columns, giving us a total of 9 cells. In each cell
there is a set of letters, outer border of the table is non-existent, giving us
a variety for the sigilization.
To create a Nine Chambers we can use a common numerology system,
where we write numbers 1 to 9. Under each number we then write a letter
of the alphabet, A under 1, B under 2, C under 3, D under 4, etc. When we
finish writing a letter under 9, we then continue writing under letter A.
Once this is finished, we have a set of letters and their numeric
representation. Now we draw the table for Nine Chambers and letters
under number 1 goes to the first cell (first row, first column), letters under
2 go to the second cell (first row, second column), till the whole table is
finished.

Image 1: Nine Chambers
To use Nine Chambers, we simply cross out all repeating letters in our
desire statement and then we follow the letters one by one in the table,
except of drawing the letter, we draw the outline of its cell, meshing these
outlines together as we go. This makes our sigils a little bit less original,
but we don't need to spend too much time with our artistic side and due
to the limited variety of shapes it is much easier to mesh these outlines
together to make a sigil. This is the Aiq Beqar (nine chambers) method.
Next method we can speak about is the Rose Croix method. This method is
really simple, you just take the rose croix and connect the letters on it in
the sequence matching with your desire statement. These connected lines
then represent your sigil. It is quite unclear what's the true origin of the
rose cross in this particular design, it officially appeared in Golden Dawn
but of course a much older heritage was claimed. What is not ancient in
the systems of traditional magick like it wasn't worth the effort. It's

partially due to the human nature, trying to find the lost wisdom of
ancient races, partially also caused by the arrogance of members of these
"ancient" lodges. But this method is used quite often and there actually
exist even variations, Here is one from the TOHO order:

Another system we can speak about uses the planetary Magick square. I
have described this method very deeply in the Astro Magick Essentials, so I
will be rather give a summary here. It is believed that there are cosmic
energies affecting our little planet and these cosmic energies can also be
used to enhance our Magick if we follow a set of rules and observe the
stars and planets to find out which energies are currently available for us
to use. Planets we normally observe are Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury,
Jupiter, Venus and Saturn (yes, in astrology Sun and Moon are considered
planets). A certain occultist named Agrippa has derived a set of Magick
squares for these planets to be used for sigilization, namely to derive
signature of intelligences and spirits of these planetary energies. But what
else is a signature than a sigil?
First of all we need a conversion table between numbers and letters:
1. A: 1
2. B: 2
3. C: 3
4. D: 4
5. E: 5
6. F: 6
7. G: 7
8. H: 8
9. I: 9
10. J: 10
11. K: 20
12. L: 30
13. M: 40
14. N: 50
15. O: 60
16. P: 70
17. Q: 80
18. R: 90
19. S: 100
20. T: 200
21. U: 300
