Sigil Magic for the Professional Magician
I will assume that you are already initiated into the secrets of
Austin Spare`s sigil magic. Consulting with my clients as a profes-
sional magician, I am always confronted with the same question: Is the
client`s will identical with my own ? If it is, there should be no
problem involved in charging the sigil in the client`s stead by
myself. (The client, one must remember, will usually not be familiar
with the basic tenets of sigil magic or even magic in general and will
probably hesitate to try it out for himself.) However, I believe as a
matter of principle that everybody should vaccinate his will for
himself. I do not feel happy with charging myself i.e. my subconscious
with other people`s desires. For example: if Mrs. X wants to be
brought together with Mr. Y by a sigil (love spell), it could be
intersting to know what might happen if the pertinent sigil were
charged by myself.
Accordingly I had to find a means to implant sigils into my
individual clients in such a way that they are not aware of what they
are really doing. At first, talking with the client, I will try to
find the "smallest common denominator" out of a tangled mass of
multiple desires. This will continue until the client is able to word
his or her statement of will (henceforth to be termed "will sentence")
in plain and unambiguous language. Following this all contact between
the client and myself will be abandoned for two or tree weeks. In the
meantime I will construct the sigil, usually employing the word
method, and sketch it on a piece of parchment. Very often the clie-
nt`s name will be encoded applying the magical camea of the planet
pertinent to the client`s desire. I may then supplement the sigil with
this personalised glyph. Then I will outline a short ritual for the
client in which will be hidden the charge proper of the sigil (employ-
ing either the mantric method or a variation of the so-called "death
After a while I will send the client this constructed sigil by
mail including instructions on how to charge it plus possible addit-
ional admonitions, if necessary. Most probably the client will have
forgotten the precise wording of his/her will sentence by now; neither
will he or she be able to draw any conclusions from these strange
glyphs. After having been charged the sigil can be sealed and con-
stantly worn in a locket, it can also be put permanently in view e.g.
as a wall decoration. Some of my clients have placed or hung their
sigils nicely framed in their office rooms.
To charge a sigil the following method is very effective. The
client arrives for consultation. In some cases has to bring along some
substance imbibed with his or her Od. During a small ritual client
must close his/her eyes and place the odic substance on the sigil
which will be lying open in front of him/her. Then I will take the
client`s finger and prick it quickly and sharply with a small chirur-
gical lancet. After the blooddrop has been smeared onto the sigil, the
latter will be folded and sealed immediately. I then admonish the
client to bear in mind that this talisman must never get into other
people`s hands. This charging method is especially effective in
working with protection or "antipersonnel mine" sigils.
Here are some examples relating to client`s feedback:
30.04. Sigil as wall decoration
24.06. Business enterprises developed well.
12.07. Protection/defence sigil, charged employing chirurgical
14.07. Client feels well and secure.

client`s name by the magical camea of Mars, charged with
09.10. "Mine" fully operative: sickness and accidents of 2-3
11.10. Sigil employed as a wall decoration.
11. Business successful. Sale of real estate to a monastry (!)

27.12. Sigil, mantric charge.
14.02. Client`s partner becomes more friendly and loving.
18.03. Partnership satisfactory.
17.06. Sigil charged spastically by myself in client`s stead.
18.06. Shortly before the potential buyer arrived for inspection in
the afternoon, the last seat in the coffeehouse (sales
object) had been taken, suggesting excellent business;
immediately after inspection number of customers decreased
07.12. Fast charge of a "combat sigil".
21.12. The idea incorporated by the sigil incarnates as a conscious
wish in the target person`s love partner.
