Hello,

It would seem a little more pagan in nature, but one would have to consider the ritual environment that they are trying to arouse before fixing themself on a sigil...

Often the most basic of materials can create some of the most powerful objects... the reasoning is hard to pinpoint but rests in shamanistic sympathetic magicks...

The primal self is engaged in these very natural objects to take the world of theism and advancing star-gazed (Harmonic Convergence....) ideas and smashing them. This allows the ancient/nuclear self to find the veins of memory that have distinguished themselves for several millions of years.... Natural Anchor... possibly even to allow the mind to develop a "ground(ing) floor," that could then allow you to elevate to a greater reahlm of mind, then if so to choose find a new sigil that allows this new world to be summoned into the life that you choose to create.

I never actually had what I would call a Satanic Alter, and I still don't. I kind of left everything all over the place. I used to have posters I made, inverted pentagrams, bad art etc all over the walls of my apartment.

Are you a solitary Practitioner?

Do you have a witch?

In the ideas of "building one" (quoted only because She should be warmer...) Raymond Buckland, Wicca, has a book 'Buckland's Complete Book of Witchcraft.' In it he gives specific details to building an altar... keep in mind his altar specifications are dedicated to Dietal Worship and reflect that in their design... I once considered a Hexagonal Altar the point of whych was to symbolize the Star of the Great Chalice lobbed and risen to the "whomb of Men" I think that it would work fine...

On a second note/thought determine first what you are having your altar direct it's forces to before you determine what it should look like....
Know thyself and begin.

Are you at the right place? This is a Modern Satanism site. Not a Wiccan site. We don't have "wyches" here, unless they are the sexy, Satanic types as described in the _The Compleat Witch_. We don't do "Circles of Eight, Star Chalices, or "whombs of men.

Be prepared to get little respect here.

I did not mean to bring any offense and for that I am sorry.

I feel that Magic is a collective knowledge, feeding one into the occult and one should take from what empowers their awakening self of power.

As for the whomb of men it is the whomb that you came from, and the only reason for your ability to now do magic.

The star chalice is of the teachings of Aleister Crowley and the eye of the God form of Man...

Hello again all,

I don't think there is anything wrong with the things you can buy commercially, but I absolutely love home made stuff.

Speaking of which, My special lady aand I have made these standards for an outdoor revel we have planned for this October.



If anyone else has any homemade altar pieces they would like to share, I would love to see them.

Those look really good. Are they screen-print or did you use some other medium?

That's funny, because I had no problems with those per se; it was the rings and the Pentagram that I had most trouble with. Thing is, if something needs to be exact, I won't be satisfied until it's exact. The Hebrew characters and the goat's head wasn't an issue here, as the results resemble what I wanted them to anyway.


Speaking of the Hebrew Symbols on the Sigil. What do they stand for?

There is an alternative sigil and rather than the hebrew characters it's letters that spell out Satan.

Those are awesome banners! I would like to know too if they were painted/screenprinted/etc.

I'm actually in the process of putting together my first "official" standalone altar, so I'll put pics up soon.

Thanks, I'm glad you folks like them.

A screen is a lot of work for a single piece, so for these I mixed one part acrylic paint to one part textile medium and hand painted them.

To get the proportions right, I took a bit of string equal in length to the radius of the circle I wanted, and tacked it in the center.

Zebu, I would very much like to see that when you get it done.

That's actually quite an idea. Of course, it would depend on one's personal preference really, but there ya go. \:\) [/quote

Zing! I've incorporated the skeletal remains (death by natural causes, I assure you) of a couple of coyotes, with two skulls on either side of my altar, a few leg bones hanging off the side, and so forth.

Macabre, indeed!

Check it:

Modest, but it's my first shot.

Zebu, I am seriously impressed.

How did you make your sigil for the altar? Is that cardboard...plywood? Inquiring minds want to know.
