According to the Ars Goetia, Glasya Labolas can see the past and fortell the future, can teach you how to make yourself invisible, and can make friends and foes fall in love with one another. Then again, he also is supposed to delight in bloodshed and slaughter.
I take ominous statements like these with boulder-sized grains of salt. After all, the Dictionnaire Infernal describes him as a horned dog with griffin wings too. It been impossible not to laugh while picturing the shenanigans a little hellhound could get into this week. What’s wrong, Glassie? Did Timmie fall down the well? Do you want another soul? Wish me luck with my puppy training class in December.
I created this is alternate sigil for Glasya Labolas using Gematria values and the square of Mercury. In my mind, it represents an oracle kneeling to read cards, runes, crystals, etc. It also represents the cloak of invisibility Glasya Labolas can teach us to use to hide our activities when necessary.
All mages must know, dare, will, and be able to keep silent. Some magick can only come to fruition when kept secret. You wouldn’t want to give away all the details of your wards and shields, would you?
The phrase above (also known as an enn) can be chanted just like a mantra while staring at the sigil in a a relaxed state. I often take a purifying bath before I contact spirit and then meditate to clear my mind. When I feel centered and ready, I’ll write out my intent by hand. Sometimes I won’t go any further than ‘praying on paper,’ but I’ve found reading prayers aloud and / or burning them can help make what I’ve asked for manifest much more quickly. If nothing else, it help my brain focus on what I want. As a magician, I know that’s half the battle. If I still feel like ritual is required after I’ve completed my prayers, I could then use this sigil and enn as part of my circle casting and invocation if desired.
