The Adaptability Sigil – We Can Do It!

The Adaptability Sigil – We Can Do It! September 15, 2020


Meet the 12th sigil in what I guess could be called the Shared Magic Sigils of the Pandemic series – the Adaptability Sigil. It was created on Saturday, September 12th during my Sigil Witchery workshop. As part of every workshop, we collectively craft a sigil, and since March, every workshop has touched upon helping folks get through this pandemic in some way. (Complete list of these sigils can be found near the bottom of this post). You’ll see from the workshop whiteboard, we also dubbed it the “We Can Do It Sigil” and the “Log-Rolling Sigil”

In discussing what to create, we had a lot of inspiration stemming from the fires/smoke that’s hitting much of the West Coast of the United States (and in other parts of the world as well) largely due to changing climate patterns which are further amplified by irresponsible behavior. How do we adapt to change this pattern while also working towards a better society for all while under pandemic and political pressure? So this sigil brings in elements of that while aiding us in adapting to change in ways that will benefit both humankind and the planet.

Workshop Whiteboard

Built Into This Sigil:
– Resilience, protection
– Focus on climate change, personal responsibility, awareness
– Prepare for growth and becoming comfortable with a new normal
– Clarity and insight
– Peace, balance
– Reclaiming Power, strength
– Healing

Design Notes:
As we were creating this sigil, one student brought up the fact that some varieties of pinecones require fire in order to burst/seed/start new life. Another mentioned the resilience and durability of eggs. These ideas gave form to the major defining shape of the sigil. There was also the interesting design by-product of the spirals simultaneously reminding us of the “We Can Do It” Rosie the Riveter iconography and the classic “Strongman” character flexing muscles and displaying an impressive mustache. There are several other interesting design by-products you’ll notice the longer you look at it.  The finalized drawing is a bit more egg-shaped than oval, but either variation will work just fine.
