Sand Sigils


  • Oval bowl at least 2½ to 3 inches deep filled with 2 inches of sand
  • Incense of your choice
  • 1 cleansed crystal

Consider your intent and design your sigil ahead of time.

Place the bowl of sand, crystal, and incense under the light of a full moon for at least fifteen minutes. Place all supplies on the altar.

Using the unlit incense stick, draw the sacred spiral in the sand, beginning at the outside rim of the bowl and working in. Draw the sigil in the center of the spiral.

Light the incense and pass it over the sigil, saying:
"I conjure thee, O magickal writings, to rise and take shape, to grow and take form, to live and bring forth the completion of your task. Where this symbol is made, the Mistress of the Universe lays her hand. I know you will do this for me. So mote it be."

Empower the crystal for your desire. Place on top of the sigil.

With the incense, carefully trace the sacred spiral in the air over the drawing from the center out, visualizing your desire entering the arms of the sacred Mother. Place the burning incense stick near the center of the spiral so it can burn freely (be careful that it doesn't tip over).

Draw an equal-armed cross in the air over the entire project. When you have received your desire, thank the Goddess, cleanse the crystal under running water, and set the sand out in the sunlight for at least a half hour.

Leave what is left of the cold incense stick outside in front of your doorstep, unless your intent was to banish, then leave it at a crossroads.
