The second of two new Druidic sigils or lamens that have gotten a bit of traction out in Pagandom. Posted largely so that I can reference it, and in case you've wondered what your buddy's t-shirt means...
The Druid’s Gate is a telesmatic design shown by inspiration to Ian Corrigan – an expression of the core ritual power of Druidic spirit-magic. By bringing together symbols of this entire complex we create a figure filled with power and awe for use in further magic
At the base of the figure we see the sigils of Water and Fire. The Primal
Powers, reflecting the cosmic powers of Earth and Sky, Underworld and Heavens. From
the Two arises the Three, and the Triskelion might represent the Three Worlds,
of Land, Sea and Sky, as understood by the ancient Celts and their Druids. In
this triskel the sacred Center, the Place Between is held by the ritual fire. By
bringing these powers together a liminal place is created, neither/nor; the
Boundary Between; and above the combined fire and water the Gate appears. I
might have chosen to express this ‘crossing-place’ as a cross-road symbol of
the usual sort, but chose instead to harken to the truly archaic forms of the
stone trilithons and gates of the pre-Celtic world, which were mysteries even
to Druids. From such gates Otherworld beings emerged.
And so we see the sigils of the Three Kindreds of spirits emerging from or arriving at the gate. The Flaming Countenance of the Gods, the Skull of the Dead, and the Serpent to represent the power of the Landspirits all appear surrounding the Gate and the Center.
Because this is the internet age, you'll find occasional products branded with this symbol - t-shirts, cups, gee-gaws, etc.
I should note that the ADF clergy order has adopted a variant of this seal as the symbol of our Senior Priesthood. You'll see priests of that rank wearing this variant as we please, on raiment or jewelry. The variant with the triskelion remains my own, the variant with the ADF sigil is used for the Senior Priesthood... just to be real clear.
