Glyphs & Symbols
The Chaos star is a spoked device with eight equidistant arrows radiating from a central point. It was originally devised by the fantasy author Michael Moorcock as a symbol of chaos (infinite possibility), and has been adopted as a symbol of Chaos Magick. Its current rounded shape was devised by occult author and chaos magician Peter Carroll.
What is 'Wyrd?' Wyrd is the most fundamental concept of all things magick and also the most difficult to describe. The Anglo-Saxon concept of 'Wyrd,' the equivalent of a fate or destiny which can be spiritually influenced, has been around since the 12th century. Even up to the 1800's the Webster's Dictionary still defined the term 'weird' as meaning 'skilled in witchcraft.' ©04032013 The Wyrding Way
