LTZ’s 2023 Sigil for the Year

LTZ’s 2023 Sigil for the Year December 31, 2022

We’ve reached the end of another year – which means it’s time for the NEW Sigil for the Year. Rather than setting a New Year’s resolution, I prefer to set the tone for the coming year with a sigil. This shifts the focus away from a single goal or task to a larger theme or perspective to consider to help bring about change.

I started doing this back around 2015-2016. At the end of each year, I collaborate with my Patreon supporters to craft a sigil for the coming year. They provide a few words or phrases that they’d like to see as a theme for the new year. I go through all of the input and create a list of elements for us to work with and then we use my signature Sigil Witchery method to craft the sigil.

For the past 3 years, I’ve done it live via our weekly Zoom session so folks can join in on the process. If you’re on my Patreon (or want to join it for just $1 a month which gets you access to a lot of behind-the-scenes art and magic), you can watch the video recording. It was too long this year for me to edit and place up on Youtube. In the video, you can see the process happen in real time, as well as in-depth discussion about how the words were grouped, what they mean, and how we brought the sigil to life.

If you want to see last year’s sigil, you can check out the 2022 Sigil for the Year here.

Here is the virtual whiteboard from the workshop:
