To: alt.magick From: hnewstrom@hnewstrom.ess.harris.com (Harvey Newstrom) Subj: Magick Squares  Sigils (0000.msqsgls.hn) Date: unknown Here are corrected kameas with some rules on how to check them. CORRECTED ODD KAMEAS: Luna: (9squared) Venus: (7 squared) Mars: (5squared) 37 78 29 70 21 62 13 54 5 22 47 16 41 10 35 4 11 24 7 20 3 6 38 79 30 71 22 63 14 46 5 23 48 17 42 11 29 4 12 25 8 16 47 7 39 80 31 72 23 55 15 30 6 24 49 18 36 12 17 5 13 21 9 16 48 8 40 81 32 64 24 56 13 31 7 25 43 19 37 10 18 1 14 22 57 17 49 9 41 73 33 65 25 38 14 32 1 26 44 20 23 6 19 2 15 26 58 18 50 1 42 74 34 66 21 39 8 33 2 27 45 67 27 59 10 51 2 43 75 35 46 15 40 9 34 3 28 Saturn: (3squared) 36 68 19 60 11 52 3 44 76 4 9 2 77 28 69 20 61 12 53 4 45 3 5 7 8 1 6 For odd kameas:  the number just below the centermost square is the 1.  the number just above the centermost square is the highest number, nsquared.  the numbers run from 1 to nsquared sequentially following a diagonal path going down and right. (Look at the examples above.)  When the diagonal reaches the bottom, it wraps around to the top.  When the diagonal reaches the right side, it wraps around to the left.  When the diagonal reaches itself, it moves down and left to start a new diagonal. (Notice in Luna where the 10 would normally go where the 1 is, but since that is already filled, a new diagonal is started with 10, 11, 12...) CORRECTED EVEN KAMEAS: Mercury: (8 squared) Sol: (6 squared) Jupiter: (4 squared) 8 58 59 5 4 62 63 1 6 32 3 34 35 1 4 14 15 1 49 15 14 52 53 11 10 56 7 11 27 28 8 30 9 7 6 12 41 23 22 44 45 19 18 48 19 14 16 15 23 24 5 11 10 8 32 34 35 29 28 38 39 25 18 20 22 21 17 13 16 2 3 13 40 26 27 37 36 30 31 33 25 29 10 9 26 12 17 47 46 20 21 43 42 24 36 5 33 4 2 31 9 55 54 12 13 51 50 16 64 2 3 61 60 6 7 57 For even kameas:  The upperright square is the 1.  The lowerleft square is the highest number, nsquared.  The upperleft square is the number of squares per side, n.  The lowerright square is the nsquared  n + 1.  The upperright to lowerleft diagonal procedes in increments of n+1.  The upperleft to lowerright diagonal procedes in increments of n1.  The rules for the inbetween numbers become increasingly complex for even kameas as they get larger. SOME HINTS ON DERIVING SIGILS FROM KAMEAS:  Almost all of the published kameas using Arabic numerals are copies from Cornelius Agrippa, and incorporate his mistakes. His original squares using the Hebrew numerals were correct.  Almost all of the published sigils drawn from the kameas are also copied from Agrippa. Since his "squares" were rectangular, all of his sigils were stretched horizontally.  Many of the copied sigils have been reproduced sideways or upside down.  Sigils start with a small circle and end with a small crossbar. Many copies of the sigils show two circles, two crossbars, or have them transposed.  Note that Hebrew numbers with two digits take two Hebrew letters in a single box. Where this occurs, the sigils can have two points for two different letters in the same box. If you only use boxes with single letters, you will not produce the same sigils as Agrippa.  Because of the above duplicated letters, some sigils can be produced in different ways. Generally, the multiple letter boxes were preferred, exept where the singleletter boxes produces a simpler sigil.  When a letter is repeated or resides in the same box as the previous letter, it is denoted with a a "bounce" showing the line touching the box twice. (The "bounce" looks something like the numeral "3.") By using the above methods, Baird Stafford, Sandra Tabatha Cicero and I were able to duplicate and verify all of the Sigils in Regardie's Golden Dawn, with the caveat that some are upsidedown or sideways, and some have the ends drawn strangely. __ Harvey Newstrom (hnewstrom@hnewstrom.ess.harris.com)
