Spell Marks & Spell Circles

Or, My Interpretation of a Necromancer’s Spell

In the Dark Caster Series, I write about necromancers. In my world, they channel a spirit’s power with a lot of self control and the help of a spell circle. Most of my research came from the book A Dictionary of Symbols by JE Cirlot (1971). Here are a few of my own–very amateurish–drawings of what I imagined in my head while writing Spell of Summoning:

A symbol of power that hangs suspended between heaven and earth.
Bell; a symbol of power that hangs suspended between heaven and earth.
A bridge between worlds and a link between what can be perceived and what is beyond perception.
A bridge between worlds and a link between what can be perceived and what is beyond perception.
The lower part becomes a receptacle open to spiritual forces while the upper part closes over the earth.
Chalice: the lower part becomes a receptacle open to spiritual forces while the upper part closes over the earth.
Libra, a sign of equilibrium between good and evil; justice.
Libra; a sign of equilibrium between good and evil; justice.
The mystic symbol for justice.
Scales; the mystic symbol for justice.
A link between the upper and lower worlds; inversion.
X; a link between the upper and lower worlds; inversion.
A six pointed star is the symbol of the human soul.
A six pointed star is the symbol of the human soul.
Virgo; symbolic of dual--positive and negative--forces.
Virgo; symbolic of dual–positive and negative–forces.
A spell circle with four spell marks at compass pints, plus four others.
