Ultimate Sigil of Set
« on: September 02, 2017, 05:01:43 am »
Sigils attributed to entities is a relatively new concept. As such, there are no sigils for many of the ancient gods, which is saddening indeed. But, out of the blue I came up with an idea for a sigil of Set.

An inverted pentagram in a circle, and inside the circle are the following symbols:

To the north - Was Scepter

To the east - Scarab Beetle (Xeper)

To the west - Ankh

To the south - Ouroboros

Now if only I had the proper software and sufficient skill to make such a thing look awesome...  :cry:

Anyway, what are your thoughts on the symbolism and their corresponding cardinal directions?

Can you expand upon your ideas a bit more, and maybe post a rough sketch? I can help with the final artwork.

The Seal of Set, a symbol of the ToS, with the face of Set against a pentagram and around the symbol (counter-clockwise) the sentence written in hieroglyphs - "Let my great nobles be brought to me."

To Onyx:

I had something like this in mind: http://imgur.com/a/PkLid

Separation symbol (the one above Xepera MaSet's avatar in his posts) can also be used instead of one of the symbols I had drawn.

The idea is that the symbols should match the cardinal directions (in this case the side of the pentagram) as best as possible.

North represents the darkness, so I chose Was Scepter for this direction as it represents the Set animal

East represents enlightenment, so I chose the scarab (Xeper) for this direction.

West represents the waters or a portal to the underworld (to Egyptians). I normally associate west with waters and life though (water symbolizes life, so by proxy west represents life), so I chose the ankh.

South represents fire, creativity, etc, so I chose ouroboros as this serpent happens to symbolize creativity as well. Also, destruction which can be connected to fire I suppose.

To Setamontet:

Very cool symbol! But, I think it's a bit too detailed for me. You see, I'm planning to...work with Set, shall we say? And I'll need a simpler symbol.

Lucifugus, you are on the right track, the simplest symbols and the custom made are some of the most magically evocative.  One of the reasons why my favorite symbols are the Pentagram of Set and the Seal of the Nine Angles.

Ah, indeed, the pentagram of Set is simple, and beautiful. I might use it in my workings. Whether I'll modify it a bit or not, I'm yet to decide.

Download a program called GIMP 2.0, with some toying around you should definitely be able to make that symbol on the program. At least a rough draft.

Not that I am aware of, sorry.

It looks like you might have the ankh and the scarab transposed. (unless you changed your mind about east and west or I am misunderstanding something)
