Magic square? What?

I was following you up until there.

Oh imagine the following numbers centered in a 3x3 matrix ...

492

357

816

... these are the numbers 1 thru 9 and ordered in such a way that each Row adds up to 15 ... 4+9+2=15, 3+5+7=15, and 8+1+6=15. Now look at the colums these too each add to 15 ... 4+3+8=15, 9+5+1=15 and 2+7+6 =15. The rows together (3x15)=45 and the colums likewise (3x15)=45 and all together they add to 90=(2x45). Well numerologically 45 and 90 are both forms of "9" ...4+5=9+0=9 so this magic square is considered both potent and handy [

Anyways, this is just one "magic square" but it works nice for sigils and all you need to do is map the alphabet to the numbers ...

1=ajs

2=bkt

3=clu

4=dmv

5=enw

6=fox

7=gpy

8=hqz

9=ir

... so it's kind of like drawing by numbers [

] Just draw a little circle where you start and a little circle where you end ... oh and for double letters you can draw either an hour glass shape (like a black widows marking) or an "X" depending on your prefered method. It usually takes a few tries and a little tweaking to make it look pretty but it's quite simple [
