Closing sigils

So Im sure this question has been asked before but wanted to get a fresh answer. Well that or Im a wee bit lazy. Anyway whats the best way to dispose of a sigil once its done its job. Ive heard burn or bury it, but is there a benefit or drawback to either of these? Also are there any other ways to tastefully dispose of our useful magickal implement?


I usually burn mine over a candle I had dedicated as a thank you to the entity for its help. I’ll leave the sigils next to the candle until its burned down a good bit. Thank the spirit for its assistance, ask that if I need it’s help again that it come to my aid and then burn the sigil. I figure this is good for a working relationship with the entity without getting too friendly.

Here are two good discussions on the topic:’ve-done-the-evocation/
