There are five different types of sigils, and these five different types of sigils are based off of what they are trying to manifest. By learning these types of sigils you will be able to understand the different purposes, and forms that sigils can take, and will have a way of categorizing them. By being able to identify which type of sigil you are working with will allow you to work with a sigil more effectively, and it may even help you decide how to go about using it.

Desire sigils:

Desire sigils are a type of sigil that go through the process of manifesting the desires of the practitioner, or of the intention the sigil has programmed into it. These desires can be anything that is achievable through magick, and will represent that desire, so that they can be used to manifest it. Desire sigils are one of the most common forms of sigils, and are the one you will probably spend the most time interacting with. They are usually made from statements of intent that details exactly what the practitioner wants to set in motion.

Examples of desire sigils:

  • Sigil for protection
  • Sigil for good luck
  • Sigil to curse your enemies
  • Sigil to have a good job interview
  • Along with many others…

Name sigils:

Names sigils are sigils that represent a specific name, construct, or entity. These sigils are connected to that specific name, construct, or entity, and can be used as it taglock, or magickal link to them. These sigil reflect the power, and the metaphysical properties, virtues, and associations of the name, construct, or entity. Names sigils can be used in order to summon forth the entities that have that name, or as personal sigils to represent entities, and constructs much like a form of signature. Some practitioners place them on things to mark them as theirs such as artwork, land, objects, or other constructs. Names sigils can be constructed using many different forms of names such as a first name, middle name, last name, username, nickname, magickal name, or anything along those lines. The greater that the name is connected, or associated with the construct, or entity the stronger the connection will be between it, and the sigil. These names sigils also mimic the aspects, and associations of the name, and of what owns the name, and because of this name sigils can be used to boost personal aspects of an entity, or construct, or can be used in order to give those aspects to another. Names sigils are primarily focused on proper nouns, and usually focus on a specific one-of-a-kind construct.

Examples of name sigils:

  • Name Sigil for Jack
  • Name Sigil for Cynthia
  • Name Sigil for America
  • Along with many others…

Correspondence sigils:

Correspondence sigils are sigils that are used to represent the correspondences of a specific construct. These types of sigils are connected to the construct’s correspondences, and associations, because of this the sigils mimic the power, and associations of the construct, and can be used in place of it in spells, and rituals, and other magickal workings. The difference between correspondence sigils, and name sigils is that correspondence sigils are connected to common nouns, or a class of constructs, and name sigils are connected to a proper nouns, or a specific construct. These correspondence sigils are not as effective as using the actual construct in your magickal working, but it can be a good substitute in situations where that construct is unavailable, or you need something to represent it in your working.

Examples of correspondence sigils:

  • Sigil for fire
  • Sigil of lavender
  • Sigil of the wolf
  • Along with many others…

Linking sigils:

Linking sigils are sigils that are connected to each other, or another sigil, and because of this connection they can be used to connect situations, and magickal workings together much like an occult telephone. These sigils allow any power to flow through them, and their connection. These sigil can be used as taglocks, or magickal links to situations, and other destinations in order to target whatever is on the other end. All sigils are some form of linking sigil, and are connected to the other versions of itself, but by making a sigil specifically for the purposes of being a linking sigil, one will be able to create sigils with a stronger association with each other.

Examples of linking sigils:

  • Ellis linking sigil
  • A sigil of a group
  • Along with many others…

Combination sigils:

Combination sigils are a combination, or mix of multiple types of sigils, or two, or more sigils. These types of sigils can be incredibly useful when you want something more complicated done in your magickal working, and need more than one type of sigil to be present in one sigil representation. These types of sigils can be created through creating a ligature of two already made sigils, or by combining the properties. You could also go through the process of creating a sigil with two specific intentions in its statement of intention, so both of them can take shape in the world when the sigil is charged, and activated.

Examples of Combination sigils:

  • Combination sigil for love and strength
  • Combination sigil for Tasha and awareness
  • Combination sigil for link between waters
  • Combination sigil for Jessie, and James
  • Along with many others…


  1. Greetings my friend. I trust you are well. I’ve been an admirer of your sigil craft for some time and have wanted to reach out to you to ask what app/program you use for your finalized versions to be uploaded? I’m kind of a sigil creator/connoisseur myself, but everything I’ve tried to use this far damn near requires an engineering degree. I love drawing them by hand, but I’m so meticulous that it takes while to complete. Thank you for your time and look forward to getting a little more in depth with your sigils and personal gnosis, as well.
