Sigilcraft

Sigil for connecting with and working with Lilith

Sigil for Lilith

Every time I work with a Goddess to craft a sigil, I never know what’s going to come of it. I tend to have a vague idea of what I wish to do. It is they who guide the process though. Lilith is no different. She has a lot to say and we so much work to do!

The Sigil

I have spent some time over the last several days connecting with Lilith. Each time I would attempt to pull that sigil from the aether. Each time she told me, “Not yet”. I knew that in due time, it would come. There is a web of understanding that we must weave before we’re shown the way. There are pieces and parts that swirl in the dream world that eventually come together.

In trancework this morning, it came. A testament to the knowledge we must not rush the process. While it is “simple” it really isn’t. Each of us will see something different. As it is meant to be. Use this sigil to connect with her. To strengthen your work. Everything we are doing this month is a piece of a puzzle. Which you will see soon!

All of these pieces will come together in a beautiful working toward our body Sovereignty. She has awakened me fully. I am ready for what is to come. For the work that has come thus far for July, you can find it here.

Altar Work: Sigil To Eris

Crafting the Devotional Altar – The Sigil

At this point, we’ve all made our Eris Awareness Oil and we’ve been using it on a regular basis. To bring awareness to Eris’ presence. Also our Black Sacred Candle has been made and we’ve been burning it for a few minutes each day. If you have allowed yourself to be open to her messages, she has brought wisdom to you. In working with her with genuine truth-seeking, she is a deep ally.

Now is the time to begin building a devotional altar to her. My next article we will talk more about that. For now, it’s time to craft your sigil. My process is different than most and can vary from day to day. One of the symbols of Eris is a golden Apple. Apples can also be used as offering. She was pretty clear in where she was leading me.

As I began drawing her in to work on her sigil, I felt called to the web. The one that we as Witches and humans weave among our social circle and our communities. When I went searching, I found something quite interesting. I have always adored a sweet little 8-legged friend in the Salticidae family of spiders. Which is a genus of jumping spiders, known as Eris.

How sweet is this little guy?

As I was drawing the sigil, a spider appeared on the apple and it was absolutely perfect! Her name keeps us rooted and the wings help us to take flight. The underworld AND the upperworld workings are both required to make the profound discoveries that are our truth and our healing.

You can choose to draw your own sigil, or you can use mine as a model. I will say, the more of us that use the collective sigil, the stronger it becomes in y/our workings. Once you have created it, anoint it with your awareness oil, pass it through the smoke of your black sacred candle, and set it upon your altar to charge. 24 hours should be plenty of time for you to begin working with it.

How to create and use Sigils

Sigilcrafting with purpose

Sigilcraft is an art. An act of devotion to the Divine, used for all manners of purpose. I have used sigils for everything from protection, to grounding, abundance, and, yes, as part of my practice to connect with The Dark Goddesses. Creating them is the “easy” part. What do you do with them afterwards? That’s up to the individual practitioner.

Some ways to use them.

  • Draw them on yourself for an effortless means of contacting The Goddesses
  • Create an altar of devotion to our monthly Goddess and add the sigil
  • Focus on them as part of meditations & journeys
  • Place them around your home/in your purse/car/etc for protection
  • Sleep with them under your pillow for peaceful rest
  • Use full moon water and “paint” them on windows

There is no right or wrong way to use sigils.

Methods of Creation

The crossout method is the easiest. What that entails is crossing out repeat letters from the name/intention. Turn the remaining letters into their base shapes & arrange them together to form something akin to rune staves.

The chart method is the next simplest. Create a chart with letters. Then draw a continuous line from one letter to the next until the intent/name is spelled out completely. Those lines then become your sigil.

Until now I’ve always used some variation of the crossout method the most. For Cerridwen, I wanted something different. I decided to let intuition and our Beloved Cerridwen guide my hand as I created.

The first shape that came to form was the cauldron/bowl/crescent moon. The cauldron and the crescent are two of her symbols. From there, we know that wheat is another of her symbols and signifies abundance. Spirals show our connection to the all that is everywhere. Fire purifies.

Depending on the energies you wish to tap into, upright leads you into the cauldron, sideways taps into the moon energies.

Coming soon!

Having this ready for my next article, where we’re building a portable devotional altar, will help you to tap that energy fairly quickly. We’ll also be using it, again, in a few more days to help as a focal point.

Please be sure to check back through our articles and post for this month, as we prepare to step into the cauldron.

Darkest Blessings,
Ivy

Pssst…speaking of connecting, we are trying so hard to contain ourselves about our community that will be launching this year! Stay tuned!

We believe that it is important to empower each other by connecting in a way that provokes and encourages knowledge of self, of sovereignty, and that which builds intuition.
