Dans la version originale latine d’Agrippa, il y a donc une erreur puisque l’on devrait arriver à 325. On peut supposer qu’un Aleph est en trop dans ce nom. Cette même erreur se retrouve chez Barret et chez tous les occultistes apparemment trop las pour refaire le calcul .

ACHIMER

ENG     FRA

Mediaeval sigils for the binary alpha Virginis, Somestimes called Arista or Spica, given by HERMETIS 13C

   

and EVANS 1922

   

in a form adopted as a variant for the modern sigil SPICA.


ACID – ACIDE

ENG     FRA

LUEDY 1928

DIDEROT 1763

gives the sigil for ‘marin acid’ wich is probably derived from that given by GEOFFROY 1718 for ‘acid of sea salt :

GEOFFROY 1718 gives the sigil for acidic :

SCHEFFERS 1775 gives the sigil for Acidum Salis :

for Acidum fluoris mineralis :

Acidus sacchari :

Acidum urinae or Phosphori :

Sigil given by HOMER 1723 for ‘corporeal acidic aspect of the Spirit of the World (Anima Mundi)’ :

for ‘active intellect’.


ADACIEL

Demon – ADATIEL « walks the earth »

 


ADAMAS

A sigil given by SIGMA 17C among a list of precious stones, to be interpreted as diamond or adamantine

Almost certainly it is the quality of ‘hardness’ which is intended.

ONOMASTICUM 1574


ADAMIC SCRIPT

One of the numerous SECRET SCRIPTS derived from the Hebraic tradition of alphabets (see HEBRAIC SCRIPT), but adapted for the Roman alphabet. The version below is that recorded by CHRISTIAN 1870, with variant characters by RIVIERE 1938 :

This script is almost identical with the Rapaelic script.

Two of the more simple sigil for this demon are recorded by SCHEIBLE 1848 :


ADNACHIEL

Demon – ADNACHIEL « the hunter demon »

Mediaeval variants for the ‘angel’ of Sagittarius, given by BRAHE 1582 :

See SPIRIT OF SAGITTARIUS


AERUGO

ENG    

Verdigris ‘specifically from copper’ is given the four sigils by SCHNEIDER 1962 :

AES See BRASS, COOPER and CRUDE METAL

Mediaeval sigli for the semi-precious stone, sometimes called Achasses or Achates, recorded by SIGMA 17C :


AGARES

AGIEL

Demon – AGIEL « lord of calamity »

AGNI See TEJAS


AHENUM

SOMMERHOFF 1701

LUEDY 1928

SCHNEIDER 1962


AIM

The 23d spirit is called Aim, a greatt duke and strong, he appeareth in ye forme of a very handsome man in Body, [but] wth 3 heads, The first like a serpent ye second like a man wth 2 starrs in his forehead, The Third [head] is lik [sic] a Catt; he rideeth on a viper, carring a fire brand in his hand burning, whereth [wherewith] he sets Citties Castles & great places on fire he maketh one witty [in] all manner of wayes, and giveth true answares to privy matters, he governeth 26 Legions of Infernall spirits; his seal is thus to be made, and worne as a Lamen before you.

   


AIR

The most common sigil for this ‘second element » is :

but this is by no means representative of the mixture of gases we know to today under the name ‘Air’ : in the esoteric tradition, Air is, as WELLING 1735 puts it, ‘The Spiritual and Invisible Air which existed before the descent of Lucifer’ : the Occult Air. A modern sigil is given by DE VORE 1947, within an astrological context :

whilst a ‘cabbalistic’ form is recorded by SHEPHERD 1971 :

There are very many mediaeval variants, of which the following are the most common :

ALCHEMY 1650

KIRCHER 1655

TABLE 1676

CROLLIUS 1670

FRESNE 1680

ALCHEMICAL 17G

AIR HAND

Sigil originated to serve modern chirognoray, intended to denote the male Air hand font, given in GETTINGS 1965 :

The female Air hand form is represented by the sigil :


AIR TRIPLICITY

Whilst in practical terms any of the sigils in the forms intended to denote AIR may be vised to represent the astrological Air triplicity (Gemini, Libra & Aquarius), AGRIPPA 1510 gives a composite sigil derived from the sigillic forms most frequently used for these zodiacal signs :


AKASA See AKASHYA


AKASHYA

Sometimes called Asasha or Akasa, this is without doubt the oriental equivalent of the European invisible ‘fifth’ element, the QUINTESSENCE ( see BLAVATSKY 1888) :

The sigil is described as  ‘a transparent white circle with dots’, the latter representing chhidra, holes or spaces in substance. A sigil is given by AVALON 1919

and is associated with the Visuddha or throat chakra.

PERSONAL 1980


See ETHERIC and QUINTESSENCE


ALABROTH

Sigil given in ONOWASTICUM 1574, the substance being described as a ‘sweet salt’ :


ALA CORVI

Mediaeval sigil for the double star delta Corvi sometimes called Algorab, given in HERMETIS 13C

A variant of this sigil was given by AGRIPPA 1510 and printed in AGRIPPA 1531, with slight variations in a form which is now regarded as standard in

European occultism :


ALADIAH

Appartiene al Coro dei CHERUBINI
Elemento TERRA
Angelo Custode delle persone nate dal 6 al 10 Maggio.
Domicilio Zodiacale dal 16° al 20° del Toro.

ALAYOCU

Mediaeval sigil for the fixed star alpha Aurigac, sometimes called HIRCUS, Amalthea and CAPELLA, given by HERMETIS 13C

which records also a related variant :


ALBUM

Sigils for ‘whiteness’ or ‘paleness’, sometimes also used for ‘white of egg’ .

ALCHEMYCAL 17C

ALBUMEN

Generally this sigil was restricted to ‘white of egg’ or ‘glair’.

ALCHEMY 1650

SHELTON 17C

GESSMANN 1906

SOMMERHOFF 1701


ALBUS

Sigil for one of the sixteen geomantic figures, for which a multitude of variants (dots, stars, floral devices, etc.) is used in the same four-fold arrangement

Albus is linked by AGRIPPA 1531 with the element Water, the planet Mercury, and the zodiacal sign Cancer. The following sigils are derived from late-mediaeval sources, and are sometimes jsed to denote the planet MERCURY, as for example in TRITHEMIUS 1503.

AGRIPPA 1531

HEYDON 1664

See also ALBUM


ALCALI See ALKALI


ALCALICUS

Sigil given by HOMER 1723 as ‘corporeal alkali’ of the eternal becoming of God, the fourth in the ten links of the so-called Golden Chain, associated with the second (female, creative, expansive) of Boehrae’s Divine Outpourings (see GRAY 1952) :


ALCHEMIST SCRIPT

A large number of apparently unrelated secret scripts called ‘Alchemical alphabets’ have been preserved in occult, and alchemical texts, the general idea being that sigils normally used to denote substances or processes are substituted for the letters of the alphabet. VIGNERE 1586 records a fairly typical example, which is given here, along with a number of variants to it from SELENUS 1624

The following three, all preserved by SOMMERHOFF 1701 are again fairly typical of these scripts, combining astrological and alchemical sigils apparently without any real feeling for ‘meaning’ or secret symbolisra:

See also SECRET SCRIPTS.


ALCOHOL

A sigil is given by KOCH 1930, though without a stated source :

SCHNEIDER 1962 gives the sigils

for spiritus vini rectificatissimus, but see SPIRIT OP WINE.


ALDERARAN

HERMETIS 13C gives the sigil for alpha Tauri :


ALEMBIC

In esoteric alchemy, tho symbol is used for the human physical body, in which the Great Work of transmutation takes place : in exoteric alchemy, the tern refers to the vessel used for the process of distillation. The latter meaning is probably intensed by the fallowing mediaeval sigils :

ALCHEMY 1650

VALENTINE 1671

SIGNA 17C

SOMMERHOFF 1701

GESSMANN 1906

SCHNEIDER 1962


ALEPH

The first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, for which very many derivatives have been compounded within the tradition of secret SCRIPTS, amongst which a selection from BARTOLOZZI 1675 may be regarded as the most well known :

See however HEBRAIC SCRIPT. The letter and its sigil derivatives have been used generally to suggest, the idea of ‘beginning’. WIRTH 1927 equates aleph with the first arcanum of the Tarct pack, the JUGGLER, and thus with zodiacal Taurus, the constellation Orion, and with rhe Mercury of the Alchemists. He traces a graphic etymology with the forms which demonstrate a vestigial bull’s head, or that of an Ox :

KOCH 1930

SCHNEIDER 1962

See also SAL ALKALI

ALPHA

A variety ox sigils used from early Christian times, and based on the firsc letter of the Greek alphabet, generally intended to convey the idea of ‘creative beginning’ and frequently used conjointly with OMEGA, ‘the end of all tilings’ :

Many related sigils have beer, adopted for Christian use, with graphic etymological roots which go back to pre-Christian traditions. TESTA 1962 records a series of sigils from such early Christian sources, all of which are related to the alpha

a scries which culminates in the form of the triple alpha, symbolic of the Holy Trinity

See also MORTAL ADAM


ALPHABETS See SECRET SCRIPTS


ALPHECCA

Mediaeval sigil for the fixed star alpha Coronae sorealis, sometimes called Alfeca and ELPHEIA, given by HERMETIS 13C :

A variant from mediaeval sources is recorded by EVANS 1922 under the (erroneous) name Lucia corona Scorpionis :

From such sources AGRIPPA 1531 derives his sigil which has entered the European occult stream :


ALTAMECH

Mediaeval sigil for the fixed star alpha Bootis, sometimes called Arcturus and Alchameth, given by HERMETIS 13C

EVANS 1922 records a mediaeval version :

From such sources AGRIPPA 1531 derived his sigil which has entered the European occult stream :


ALUM

An enormous number of sicils for this mineral salt, has survived from mediaeval times, of which those reproduced from a mediaeval manuscript by CARRONELLI 1925 are the most wiuely used in the alchemical tradition :
