Tree of Life Sigil. The Tree of Life is one of the most familiar of the Sacred Geometric Symbols. The structure of the Tree of Life is connected to the sacred teachings of the Jewish Kabbalah but can be seen in other traditions as well, such as the ancient Egyptian tradition. The Tree of Life is explained in Sefer Yetzira ("Book of Creation").
BIND RUNES: We see a lot of confusion with Post-Viking age symbology, in particular with the Icelandic staves. Whilst the staves may include runes, not all of them do. So whilst some may be classified as "bind runes", others are staves or symbols in their own right. This image shows a variety of symbols, all that have been commonly described as "bind runes". However, only 9, 11, 12, 13, and 15 are bind runes.
The signs and staves seen here can be found in Icelandic grimoires, some from the 17th century, some from later times though all of them seem to be related. The origin of this peculiar Icelandic magic is difficult to ascertain. Some signs seem to be derived from medieval mysticism and renaissance occultism, while others may be related to runic culture and Germanic belief in Thor and Odinn. Most magic mentioned in court records can be found in grimoires kept in various manuscript collections.
