Images of the Western Occult Tradition

In the Western Occult Tradition, each planet has traditionally possessed both a spirit and an intelligence: ethereal souls responsible for the baleful and beneficial influences (respectively) of the individual planet. Here are the common sigils for the planetary spirits.

In the Western Occult Tradition, each planet has traditionally possessed both a spirit and an intelligence: ethereal souls (sometimes called daemons) responsible for the baleful and beneficial influences (respectively) of the individual planet. After all, even humans have souls, and the planets of the Celestial realm are far more spiritual, existing closer to God and constructed of a much more rarefied matter. It was logical to occultists that the planets also possessed their own souls.

Identity of the Spirit

The name of Saturn's spirit, responsible for the planet's baleful influences, is Zazel.

Construction of the Planetary Sigil

This sigil, published by Henry Cornelius Agrippa in his Three Books of Occult Philosophy and frequently repeated in other publications, is constructed through numerology and magic squares. The name Zazel is spelled out in Hebrew, and then each Hebrew letter is associated with a number, as the Hebrew language inherently does. Each number is located on the magic square associated with Saturn, and a line is drawn to pass through each number.

Aesthetic Choices

The terminating circles at each end of the line appear to have been added for purely aesthetic reasons. Many hold that the sigil can also be freely rotated, either for aesthetic purposes or to further disguise the meaning and method of construction of the sigil.

Purpose of The Sigil

This sigil would be used to attract the baleful influences of Saturn, which according to Agrippa includes the hindering of buildings and plantings i.e. growth, casting a man from honors and dignities, causing discord and quarrels, and dispersing armies.
