Why I Wrote This Article?
You could say that sigils are symbols that are used to make magic, symbols that have evolved, and that have been taking different uses over time.
Initially, the sigils were seen as a specific brand of an entity or energy, but then, and especially with the appearance of the chaos magic, they began to be used as a way of representing what is expected to be obtained or transformed.
In theory, sigil magic is not very complicated and is a relatively easy way to focus on a specific purpose by putting all the energy into its creation.
Obviously, each person has their own methods of creating and activating them.
Still, in principle, sigils are about having a clear purpose that will then be translated into the symbol.
Many years ago, I learned this form of magic, and it seemed to me that although it is quite practical, personally, it does not resonate much with the way I channel my purposes.
I’m more of doing meditations and lighting candles, but I know many people who do.
They have found in the sigils a vital way to channel their energies.
What is a Moon Sigil?
Moon sigil is the art of using symbols, images, and the energy of the Moon to manifest your desire.
I really think that moon energy is the strongest of all, and I love performing rituals and spells to ask for some blessings or some closures to create my dream life.
How Can Moon Sigil Help?
When it comes to some moon spells or rituals, you should make statements, quotes, and affirmations to ask the moon for what you need in your life.
During some specific moon phases like the new moon and the full moon, there are some practices you can go for to create something.
It can be a new project, a dream, or to set a goal you want to accomplish (new moon) or to leave something that no longer serves you behind, letting it go and start your life from scratch.
It can also be about forgiving and forgetting someone or a feeling that was on your way, preventing you from having the best life you have always wanted.
Moon rituals are all about writing down things on a paper and then burn under the moonlight.
But what if you don’t know how to create these intentions, dreams, and expectations, and you are looking for special guidance?
Moon sigils are the answer! They can be a perfect tool to make loud and clear statements and help the energy, the moon, and the universe conspire to make your dream life come true.
When Would You Create Moon Sigil?
You would create moon sigils when you need to clear things out, and you want to change your life for good.
It really doesn’t matter if you want to create something brand new from scratch like a project or you want to let go someone in your life that made you feel uncomfortable or depressed about yourself, a moon sigil is right there to help you express your inner thoughts and wishes.
When exactly should I create a Moon sigil?
You should create moon sigils during the New Moon if you want to create something, start a business, embark on a transformative journey and so on and during the Full Moon to erase the past, forgive someone, a feeling or even yourself for letting it go and feel all brand new!
Nighttime is fantastic to create a soothing atmosphere under the light of the moon and spend some time meditating and working on your intentions.
The moon will be ready to listen up and help you be the one person you have always wanted to be!
How to Create a Moon Sigil?
There are many methods to make moon sigils.
The important thing is that you have a very clear intention of what you want.
Now let me explain the process!
- A candle (optional, but highly recommended!)
Steps to follow
Write your intention as clear and concrete as possible; make a concise phrase.
Better if you do it as an affirmation, that is as if it were something that you already have in the present.
For example, I chose the statement:
“I am at peace” instead of “I want to be at peace” or “I wish I had peace”.
Cross out all the vowels of the sentence and all the consonants that are repeated after having crossed out the vowels.
In my example of the phrase “I am at peace” I crossed out the vowels e, o, e, a, and no consonant.
Now the idea is to make a composition with the letters that are left.
This is the funniest part since you just have to look at how all consonants can be positioned so that they form a pattern.
The important thing is to play with each letter and make a composition that you feel resonates with you. You can also add some additional touches at the end to balance the structure.
Once you have created the moon sigil, you can activate it by copying it or by passing it clean to another paper.
You can use ink of some color that goes with the intention of it.
While you redraw it, put all your intention into that purpose and then, the most important thing is that when you finish it, you forget about it.
It may sound strange, but energetically if you become obsessed with what you want to achieve, you create an obstacle that does not allow that energy to manifest itself.
Hence, it is best to activate it while you draw it, and then you can save it in a place where you do not see it permanently and only trust the process you just did.
Finally, I need to mention that you should not confuse the sigils with the runes.
Sure, runes can also be drawn and activated, but they aren’t the same as they belong to a completely different current of magic.
My Favorite Moon Sigils
Moon sigils are a little bit more complicated than others because their creation is all about your intentions.
I added a few ideas of both forgiveness and closure but also something more about creating a new project or life.
Make sure to customize your intentions and make your dreams and expectation loud and clear!
I AM READY TO LET GO
I AM WHO I WANT
I FORGIVE MYSELF
I FORGET ALL THE PAIN
I LIVE MY DREAM LIFE
Spell to Ask the Moon for Help
This is a spell that helps to set in motion the events that lead to the realization of something that we desire.
As everyone knows, it is Nature that offers the most potent magical ingredients, herbs, and plants, and above all, have their own energy that is released even without being recalled through a spell or ritual.
Thus, if this energy is channeled towards something, in particular, its effect becomes truly powerful!
For this spell, we will use Physalis peruviana, generally also available in the supermarket.
This plant is also called Chinese Lantern, due to the shape of the “leaves”, and in fact, they must be intact for this spell.
Favorable moment to cast it: New Moon or Full Moon.
Things you need
- Jasmine incense (the stick is fine)
- Lighter or matches
- Two long blue candles
- A sewing needle
- A teaspoon of sweet almond oil
- Seven Physalis alkekengi (best known as Chinese lanterns)
- A Sigil of your own creation
How it’s done
The first thing to do is to create a protective magic circle.
Light the incense and one of the candles and repeat:
All the honor to the moon
Pearl of Heaven
Mother of the Sky
Lantern of fire.
All the honor to the moon
Hear me out and hear my desires to make them come true.
With the help of the needle, engrave your moon sigil on the other candle, starting from the bottom to the middle.
Grease the candle with the almond oil three times, always starting from the bottom towards the middle of the candle.
Light the candle and, when the first letter of the incision begins to burn, put a drop of wax inside each “leaf” of physalis.
In the growing moon, throw the “leaves” in running water, so that they can do their job.
For each one, you throw say, “So be it.”
If your desire is demanding, I recommend you throw them in the sea or in larger waters.
Moon sigils are so special to me. I love to use them to make my affirmation and wishes clear and ready for the universe to acknowledge them and help me realize all I want.
The best part is that they can be used for broader practices like rituals and spells.
Commit to this practice, think about what you want to ask for.
But be careful what you wish for!
