Sigil for Good Luck and Fortune

Good Luck Sigil Step-by-Step: How to Craft and Activate It

sigil is a simple technique used in chaos magic. Many modern Witches and other practitioners of Magic create sigils to manifest a desire or intention. We believe that every skilled Witch should have in their arsenal the ability to cast a spell by ways of making a sigil.

In this post, you will discover what sigils are and how to make a good luck sigil. If you are wondering what other types of sigils you can make, well it all depends on your intent. You can a make a protection sigil, a love sigil, a prosperity sigil, and so on.

What is a Sigil?

The word “sigil” is an Latin term that stands for “seal.” In simple terms, a sigil is a kind of magical symbol or pictorial representation. Initially, sigils were seen as a specific mark of an entity or energy.

The Seal of Solomon, for example, comes from the legend of the signet ring attributed to King Solomon in medieval Arabic tradition. There are many versions of it, here’s one:

Later, and especially with the appearance of chaos magic, they began to be used as a way to represent what is expected to be obtained or transformed. Each person will have their own methods of creating and activating a sigil, but in principle it is a matter of having a clear purpose that will later be translated into the symbol.

Your intention can be put into a short statement that briefly describes what you are trying to manifest. It has to be well thought out, as it will serve as the foundation and catalyst for your good luck sigil.

How to Make a Sigil for Good Luck 🍀

There are two main steps to be followed when creating any type of sigil; these are the construction of the sigil and the charging or activation.

Construction is the stage where you craft the sigil as a physical art. If you identify as an Art Witch then you won’t have any problems with this, the more creative part.

The second stage is where you charge the sigil with energy, and that’s when it becomes a powerful spell. If you are looking to make a sigil for good luck, follow these steps:

Step 1: Decide on the Type of Sigil

There are three main types of sigils, which are temporary, permanent, and destructible sigils. How you charge your sigil may depend on the type you are creating.

1. Temporary sigils, as the name implies, are sigils that fade away with time, such as sigils drawn or carved into wax, ones drawn with a temporary marker, and so on

2. Permanent sigils are the direct opposite of their temporary counterparts. They tend to last for a very long time. These types of sigils could be engraved on a hard surface, drawn on a piece of cardboard and glued to the back of a painting, or on any kind of permanent structure. You may have to recharge permanent sigils from time to time to sustain the energy.

3. Destructible sigils are charged by destroying them. After creating the custom sigil using the words of your intention, you then charge it by destroying it, mostly by burning it. In this post, we will focus on how to make a destructible sigil for good luck.

Step 2: Create Your Sigil

Before you proceed to draw the sigil, you need to first define your intention. This is one of the most important steps, so it shouldn’t be rushed. Some suggest starting your intention with the phrase “I am.” You also want to be as specific as possible. Your sigil is more likely to be a success if it’s about one specific thing.

After choosing your intention, get a pen and a piece of paper and write it down. For this example, we will use the statement: “I am a magnet for good luck and goodwill.”

Remember, you should not rush this part. If you feel you are not getting any ideas, stay in a relaxed mood and ponder on the situation you are going through and how you want to turn things around.

Now that you’ve written down your intention, it’s time to discard all the vowels and repeated letters. For example:

Now start using the remaining letters to form an abstract symbol. Here you don’t have to look for perfection, just make sure all the letters are connected and let your subconscious mind and intuition guide you. You can’t go wrong with this because it’s your sigil and not anyone else’s.

You can surround it in a circle to contain its energy. Some people choose to decorate the surrounding circle with planetary correspondences or draw runes to remind them of the intention of the sigil.

Step 3: Charge Your Sigil

Now that you are done creating your good luck sigil, it’s time to charge it. You can do this in several ways, as you would activating a talisman or enchanting jewelry, but since we are making a destructive sigil for good luck, we will charge it by burning it.

Before burning, place your hands on the sigil as you focus on your intention and let this energy flow into the design. Other ways to charge a sigil include raising energy or channeling the energy of the moon or of the sun. At the end of the day, following your intuition is what matters the most. So, just use the method that feels right with the type of sigil you are creating.

When setting the good luck sigil on fire, make sure you are in a quiet place, where there’s no distraction. Wait for the sigil to burn completely. Follow this spell for inspiration: Burning Bay Leaf for Good Luck.

After burning it, the sigil is completely charged and you have succeeded in creating a potent spell. The ritual can now make an entry into your grimoire for future references. The job is done! You can now wait and let the magic happen at the right time.

Working with Sigils

You can use existing magical symbols as a starting point to create your own powerful sigils. For example, invoke the power of Hecate with Hecate’s sigil or any Divine Feminine symbol.

    That is interesting. If there is a repeated letter, I keep the first letter but I delete the duplicate. I don’t know if that’s “wrong.” For instance, I would have kept the G. But I also break my sigls down into lines and curves so that the letters may not (or may) be recognizable. Once I have my set of letters, I count the lines, then I count the curves and I let me design emerge organically from those elements, incorporating the number of lines and curves. If I can make it look like a relevant image or symbol, I do 🙂

  2. Thank you so much for that great, understanding, and information. This was very helpful to me and good 👍🏿to know.

  3. I really want to learn about sijils,how to manifest them, and hiw to make them really works. Thanks for this post, I learned alot from it. I hope you can help me to do the right manifestation.

  4. Thank you for this explanation on making sigils. You made it understandable- I can do this! I have one question though- I understand about leaving out duplicate letters, was the crossed off because it is an inverted W? Off to make one for myself- thank again!

    • Hello June! The “M” was crossed off because it is repeated. It appears in the words “am” and “magnet”. I hope that helps – and I hope your sigil-making was a success!

  5. MERRY MEET you all. This is a lovely post, is easy to learn. MEGAN does a really fine job.
    Blessed Be.
