The sacred geometry of conjuring circles has proven one of the most surprising difficulties in my study of ceremonial magic. Even as someone who can draw well, there’s something about concentric circles brings out more of the OCD than the artiste. So I started playing around with my computer.
This first image was designed with a Trithemian table of practice in mind, but I haven’t quite mastered circular text in either the GIMP or Inkscape, the two image programs I can afford. In my studies of ceremonial magic, freely available electronic templates were of immense use to me, so I offer this one here in the public domain for use by anyone for anything. It’s not perfect, but it’s better than anything I could find royalty-free. Enjoy
This second is the first stage of a prototype based on the Trithemian table, using the Agrippan planetary characters rather than the names of the archangels. My thought is that I, or anyone else, might substitute the elemental or directional powers with whom they are most intimate for the four angels Trithemius prescribes. I share it here for private use, and I would be delighted to hear about any experiments performed with it.
This third and final table that I’m going to share today is the one revealed to me by the powers of Saturn during the Seven Spheres in Seven Days challenge. I share this, too, for personal experimentation only.
