Know this symbol?
« on: December 27, 2014, 12:52:08 pm »
Does anyone know what this symbol is? I've gone through all of my books and as many webpages as I could, but I can't find absolutely nothing about it (I don't even know if it's related to a Western magical tradition, but...). Any information, as little as it may be, will be of great help.

(If you're wondering where did I find it, it's in Kier Egipcios Tarot, in the Priestess card, in the position where usually are Olympic spirits symbols or enochian letters or other things like that.)

I went to Google an found this: "On the top of the Majors there is an Egyptian hieroglyph, an alchemical symbol, a letter from a magical alphabet." Of course, I'll be damned if I can find an easy source that says which one, but at least we can guess it alchemical?

So that leaves pawing through Google images or waiting for an alchemist to chime in I suppose. I actually started doing the former but have had no luck so far.

Yes, I came to the same conclusion, but haven't found anything so far. Let's wait for an alchemist then! Thanks for your answer!

Is this your own drawing of the character, or a pic of the card?  It looks kinda similar to a sigil of the Enochian/Angelic variety.  If it is, you may be out of luck unless you know the underlying key.
There is no inherent meaning to life.  Stop looking and give your life meaning.

It's a part of the card. If you want to see the full card, aeclectic has a preview: click. The symbol is in the upper center of the card.

I found it looks very similar to the left part of the sigil of the Moon's spirit of the spirits in this link: click.
