SIGIL MAGICK & QR CODES
A great potential lies in using QR codes for sigil magick. For example you can make a linkage sigil net across the city in form of QR code stickers that get charged or launched by passing strangers who decide to decode it, or direct the energy to your altar/self. You can share short spells, hide chants, statements of intent, or set url links that lead to some more obscure multimedia which belongs to the complete sigil project.
In QR code you can enter data as text, links, contact cards, info, geo location, etc. QRs are easily made with free web generator sites. After downloaded image file you can take it further:
– colored cells, color gradients and layered sigils as low opacity backgrounds
– thanks to data correction in QR decoding you can “corrupt” 30% of code with centered logo/sigil. Cut unneeded parts so the QR gets better and faster readability.
– some sites offer even funkier design options, as different shapes of the “eye” squares, color variations, or code styles.
– try making 3D styled codes if you listen to witch house a lot (*guilty*)
– magickian can make a magic circle and insert multiple QR codes into it, center piece for summoning and even simpler QR encoded correspondences in corners (simpler the data, simpler the code!)
– finished thing can be printed on stickers (try to make them waterproof by sticking another layer of sticky transparent foil over it, youtube it)
– !!! Always check your code by phone/s, or different QR scan software options while designing your code. Some combinations lower the readability so try to play with opacity, contrast and etc while simultaneously checking it.
– enjoy being an urban reality hacking chaos magickian!
all the best chaotically,
The Trans-Saturnian 3 (Part 3)
The two symbols presented here represent the planet Pluto which was discovered in 1930 by Clyde Tombaugh.
The planet is named after a Greek god named Pluto, who was the ruler of the underworld. ■
Again, notice the three ingredients for a planetary symbol: the elemental cross: the lunar crescent: and the solar circle.
The second symbol for Pluto is simply the first two letters of Pluto (PL) merged into one.
Again, the trans-Saturnian 3 are new discoveries that don’t fit perfectly into astrology, alchemy or Kabbalah. Though some attribute pluto to Kether, the highest sphere on the tree of life synonymous with god and the beginning of the universe.
It’s interesting that Pluto, a god of the underworld, was the name given to the last “planet” in our solar system as it sits on the edge between the light of the sun and the black abyss of space.
I was tempted to delve into the mythologies of the trans-Saturnian gods, however that is out of the scope of decoding symbols and would require an entire book!
Thanks for reading.

The Trans-Saturnian 3 (Part 2)
This is the symbol for Neptune, the 8th planet from the sun that was officially named in 1846.
The planet is named after the Roman god Neptune, the god of the sea.
We can see 2 of the ingredients for a planetary symbol: a cross & a crescent. The two are stylized to create a 3 pronged trident, which is a symbol attributed to the god Neptune hundreds of years before the discovery of the planet.
The Roman Neptune would correspond with the Greek god Poseidon.
Again it is controversial to use Neptune in astrology, Kabbalah or Alchemy, but within Crowley’s book 4 Neptune is associated with Chockmah (the 2nd sphere on the tree of life). Though this doesnt make too much sense since Chockmah’s element is fire, and Neptune is clearly water. Syncretism is rarely orderly.

The Trans-Saturnian 3 (Part 1)
The symbol above symbolizes Uranus, the 7th planet from the sun, which was officially discovered and designated as a planet in 1781 by William Herschel.
The planet is named after the Greek god Uranus (a name which means “sky” or “heaven”) who is married to Gaia (a name meaning “Earth”).
The first 3 variations of this symbol contain the 3 ingredients for a planetary symbol: a cross: a circle: a crescent.
The H that is formed from the combination of these 3 ingredients is also said to symbolize the H from William Herschel’s last name.
The 4th variation of this symbol is a combination of the sun and mars symbols. This symbol was chosen by J. G. Köhler and refined by Johann Bode.
Within the field of symbolism that relates to qabalah, astrology and alchemy, it is widely debated on the practicality of incorporating the trans-Saturnian planets.
However it should be noted that Uranus can be associated with the “11th” sphereless sphere on the tree of life named Da’ath, according to Crowleys Book 4

Samuel Liddel MacGregor Mathers – The Magical Circle of King Solomon, “The Goetia: The Lesser Key of Solomon the King”, 1904.
THE MAGICAL CIRCLE
This is the form of the Magical Circle of King Solomon, the which he made that he might preserve himself therein from the malice of the Evil Spirits. This Magical circle is to be made 9 feet across, and the Divine Names are to be written round it, beginning at Ehyeh, and ending at Levanah, Luna.
THE MAGICAL TRIANGLE OF SOLOMON
This is the Form of the Magical Triangle, into which Solomon did command the Evil Spirits. It is to be made at 2 feet distance from the Magical Circle and it is 3 feet across. Note that this triangle is to be placed toward that quarter where unto the Spirit belongeth. And the base of the triangle is to be nearest unto the Circle, the apex pointing in the direction of the quarter of the Spirit. Observe thou also the Moon in thy working. Anaphaxeton is sometimes written Anepheneton.
The coiled serpent is only shown in one private codex, the Hebrew names being in most cases simply written round in a somewhat spiral arrangement within the double circle. It is to be remembered that Hebrew is always written from right to left, instead of from left to right like ordinary European languages. The small Maltese crosses are placed to mark the conclusion of each separate set of Hebrew names. These names are those of the Deity Angels and Archangels allotted by the Qabalists to each of the 9 first Sephiroth or Divine Emanations.
In English letters they run thus, beginning from the head of the serpent:
✠ Ehyeh Kether Metatron Chaioth ha-Qadesh Rashith Ha-Galgalim S.M.M. (for “Sphere of the Primum Mobile”) ✠ Iah Chockmah Ratziel Auphanium Masloth S.S.F. (for “Sphere of the Fixed Stars,” or S.Z. for “Sphere of the Zodiac”) ✠ Iehovah Elohim Binah Tzaphquiel Aralim Shabbathai S. (for “Sphere”) of Saturn ✠ El Chesed Tzadquiel Chaschmalim Tzedeq S. of Jupiter ✠ Elohim Gibor Geburah Kamael Seraphim Madim S. of Mars ✠ Iehovah Eloah Va-Daäth Tiphereth Raphaël Malakim Shemesh S. of the Sun ✠ Iehovah Tzabaoth Netzach Haniel Elohim Nogah S. of Venus. ✠ Elohim Tzabaoth Hod Michaël Beni Elohim Kokav S. of Mercury ✠ Shaddaï El Chai Iesod Gabriel Cherubim Leanah S. of the Moon ✠.
Circular chart showing a modern set of Talismanic Geomantic Symbols.
The chart informs the Geomancer on the Elemental, Planetary and Zodiacal Correspondences (conforming to Agrippa’s ideas on Planetary Rulership). The upper half shows the Diurnal Figures and the lower half the Nocturnal. The Arabic words in the center of the Circle, “Ilm-al Raml”, translates to the “Science of the Sands”.
“Geomancy is an Art of Divination, wherby the judgement may be rendred by lot, or Destiny, to every question of every thing whatsoever, but the Art hereof consisteth especially in certain points where of certain figures are deducted according to the reason or rule of equality of inequality, likenesse or unlikenesse,; which Figures are also reduced to the Coelestiall Figures, assuming their natures and proprieties, according to the course and forms of the Signes and Planets.” – Henry Cornelius Agrippa
The Homo Signorum, or Man of Signs, is a curious figure which appears in medieval astrological manuscripts. Known as the Melothesic Man or Moon’s Man in astrological medicine, it shows the Signs of the Zodiac on the specific parts of the body over which tradition has given them rulership. In practice, the Melothesia was consulted in order to know which part of the body to avoid “touching with iron” or applying medicine thereunto when the Moon was in that specific Sign. Such figures were depicted in Almanacks intended for astrological, agricultural, and meteorological prognostications. One such Almanack, printed for Daniel Brown in 1628, translates the original Latin of Manilius’ poem about the Melothesia into Hexameters, the verses indicating the proper placement of the Signs on the human frame:
Head and face Aries, necke and throate Taurus upholdeth,
To Gemini th’ armes, to Cancer brest stomach and lunges:
As Leo rules the backe and heart, so Virgo delighteth
In guts and belly: reignes and loynes Libra retaineth.
Scorpio the secrets and bladder challengeth: of thighes
Only Sagitarius the governour is: Capricornus
The knees as subjects doth guid, but Aquarius holdeth
The legs: and Pisces maintaine the feet to be their right.
Microcosmus Melothesia demonstrates the Hermetic ‘As Above, So Below’ motif wherein the Microcosm has correspondence with the Macrocosm. The emblem further reflects this with the Serpent biting its Tail, bringing to mind the Ouroboros in the Codex Marcianus, which is accompanied by the Greek phrase “En To Pan”, or “All in All”. Finally, we see here the graphic manifestation of the sentiment behind the saying ‘from head to toe’, wherein we arrive at the whole matter of a subject by travelling across the length of the Melothesia‘s form.

This masonic bookplate contains references to ancient Egypt (the hieroglyphs and the winged scarabee at the top), the country that was allegedly the cradle of masonry. The fiery triangle: the symbol for the divine; the serpent symbolizing the cyclical nature of life and death, infinity, and the hexagram or six-pointed star unifying the masculine element (fire: the triangle pointing upwards) and the feminine element (water: the triangle pointing downwards).
