What is the Sigil of Lucifer?

The Origin of the Sigil of Lucifer

The Sigil of Lucifer originated in Grimoire of Truth published in Italy in the 16th century. It is the third sign of Lucifer in the Grimoire and is based on a nine by nine magic square. Magic squares were used before the 16th century to create magic and symbolize many different things.

Over many decades the graphical elements of the sigil have been identified with specific characteristics. The overall sigil appears as a chalice, which represents creation, the fertile darkness awaiting and ready for untold possibilities. It must be pointed out as this sigil is an instrument to invoke Lucifer, that Lucifer is considered to be the bearer of light and wisdom into the darkness (that has been invoked through this sigil).

The ‘X” over the sigil indicates the power and realm of the physical plane; its passion and sensuality that drives all entities. The inverted triangle represents water, often referred to as the original “Elixir of Ecstasy” without which physical life could not exist. The “V” at the bottom of the sigil represents the duality of all things; dark and light, male and female, and the power of convergence of the two into one manifesting balance, creation, and existence." 

Who is Lucifer?

Lucifer means a revelation star. In the Bible, it refers to the original archangel, with six wings of "brilliant morning star, son of glory". According to Paradise Lost, Lucifer forgot to be an angel because of excessive pride before he fell, and he intended to be equal to God. One day, God took the son on a tour of heaven and made the angels kneel down to worship the son of God. Lucifer was dissatisfied with god for making him kneel to the son of god and led the rebellion of one-third of the angels of heaven. Lucifer was extremely proud and confident that he could overthrow God. However, both Lucifer and his army failed, so they were exiled and lost the glory they had in the past. As a result, they were expelled from heaven and degenerated into demons.

Chapter 12 of Revelation also records the process of Lucifer’s mutiny. The Archangel Lucifer refused to submit to the Son Jesus and led a third of the angels to rebel in the northern realm. But after only three days he was "swept away" by the heavenly army led by the archangel Michael. The defeated Lucifer fell into hell for nine days in chaos and became the king of demons.
