(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

From the Latin sigillum ("seal"), a sigil is a magical design or symbol, often representing a word or concept. It is, in effect, a focal point or visual stimulus. Many sigils are created from Magic Squares (examples of which are found in The Book of Sacred Magic of Abra-Melin the Mage) by connecting the numerical values of letters throughout the square. Such a sigil gives the essence of the name or word that is being used. Others may be obtained by adopting and adapting traditional symbols such as pentagrams, astrological symbols, circles, squares, or triangles.

Once obtained, sigils are used on talismans and for marking magical tools, robes, and crowns in both Ceremonial Magic and Witchcraft. When properly constructed and consecrated before use sigils can convey great power.
