Sigil surroundings are shapes, designs, and/or glyphs you put around your sigil in order to enhance its kna. Sigils released their kna outward allowing it to connect with the kna of things around it allowing those things to influence its power. By placing shapes or other things around a sigil you are able to affect its kna. The simplest of these would be the circle, the triangle, and the square.
The circle is a powerful symbol and it embodies the kna of protection, unity, cycles and focus. The magickal purpose of drawing a circle around a sigil is to give the sigil a its own space to work, that will protect it from outside influences, and to allow it to more effectively build up power from the kna of the circle. Some practitioners will even use two circles around their sigils. Some of these practitioners will also fill the inter space between these two circles with other sigils to enhance the effectiveness of the sigil within.
The triangle represents the trinities, and embodies the kna of ascension, manifestation, and duality. Sigils surrounded by a right side up triangle will be much more expansive, and active, and sigils surrounded by a right side down triangle will be receptive, and passive.
The square embodies the kna of elements, power, structure, balance, and community. This information can also be applied to rectangles. Sigils surrounded with a square allows the sigil to be housed, and reserve its power. It is for sigils that are used in more of a balanced state where its kna will be used more like a battery, and called upon at specific times. Sigils that have a square around it can be called upon when it is needed, and because of this It is used more in passive activation methods.
