Discover the Power of Line and Symbol

Visual Magick for Everyone

Sigils are magical symbols that are designed to influence ourselves and the world around us. Tracing through history, art, and culture, this illustrated book offers an innovative and fresh approach to sigil magick that is accessible and intuitive. You don't need a degree in art or magick to make effective sigils!

Learn how to manifest your will through your very own designs. Explore traditional and modern meanings of shapes, symbols, numbers, letters, and colors, while receiving guid- ance on how to add personal meaning to your marks. Sigil Witchery includes methods of application, tips for choosing materials, and important considerations for both temporary and permanent sigils. This book helps you improve your drawing techniques, use sample exercises to challenge yourself, and gain deeper metaphysical insight and inspiration—all to guide you to develop your own powerful sigil magick.


"To the best of my own knowledge, Tempest has invented an entirely new approach to making and using sigils here, and I think it is an extremely powerful one . . . I recommend this book in the highest possible terms."—Robert Mathiesen, Professor Emeritus, Brown University, and co-author of The Rede of the Wiccae

"If you've ever wanted to create and work with sigils then you need look no further."—Storm Faerywolf, author of Betwixt and Between: Exploring the Faery Tradition of Witchcraft

"This wonderful book takes the concept of sigil well beyond the simplistic, basic notions of the [Austin Osman] Spare method, and opens the door on the deeper art and potential of sigils as it applies across the spectrum of spellcraft. Any student of the occult with an interest in sigils and sigil crafting: this is a book you need."—Arjil, teacher of Just Effing Magick and creator of the Ellis Sigil

"With style, wisdom, and a generous dose of humor, artist and author Laura Tempest Zakroff offers us a new look at an ancient magical practice: the creation and use of sigils, as well as modern tools to take this practice to the next level. From the historical and ritual use of symbols, signs, seals, and marks to the creative process itself, including tools and artistic techniques, Sigil Witchery makes an impressive contribution to a traditional body of occult knowledge."—Storm Faerywolf, author of Betwixt and Between and The Stars Within the Earth

"Sigil Witchery pulls together a number of threads in contemporary magic with insight and intelligence while keeping the applications of magical symbolism front and center. Zakroff's study ranges from the tattoo patterns of the Amazigh people to graffiti tags found in urban alleys, yet the wide scope of her interests never gets in the way of her clear writing. Her approach to sigil craft is rooted, practical, imaginative, and inspiring."—Cory Thomas Hutcheson, author and co-host of New World Witchery

"Full of original art, sigils, massive research, and a clear writing and teaching style, this is definitely the best book on the subject of sigils that has ever been written, hands down. This book isn't just a showcase of historical sigil methods or rehashed information. Tempest brings new creative ideas to the table while placing a focus on directly interacting with the book's material to make sigil magick your very own personalized form of witchery."—Mat Auryn, professional psychic, witch, writer, and blogger at Patheos Pagan

"Sigil Witchery perfectly combines the history and art of mark-making with the science and art of magick."—Chris Orapello, author, artist, and co-host of Down at the Crossroads

"With this book, Tempest totally shifts the idea of using magical sigils from a rote, rather dry process to an artistic creation that you don't have to be a gifted artist to do. She brings this information in a conversational way; it's easy to follow, fun, and full of historical details with a modern perspective ... After reading it I felt super inspired to create a sigil and have it tattooed on me!"—Phoenix LeFae, author of Hoodoo Shrines and Altars

"Sigil Witchery delves into areas of sigil work not commonly discussed. Additionally, it provides the reader with all the tools needed to enrich their practice with the power, magic, and wisdom that comes from crafting personalized magical symbols. Highly recommend to anyone interested in the intersection of art, magic, and symbol."—Matthew Venus, artist, sigilic magician, and magical apothecary

We tend to think of sigils for manifesting certain things (a new job, to draw love, to help finish a project) or performing designated tasks (protection, luck, healing). But they can be designed and employed to help guide us for bigger tasks as well. Here, Laura Tempest Zakroff, author of the new Sigil Witchery, provides some steps and ideas for creating a sigil to guide your entire year.
