is alchemy really possible? and real? i mean, we work on chemistry , but, i mean, if i create a circle , how could i use it? will it work ?? 
why is there a lower case fire and and upper case Fire?

The upper-case fire may symbolize the final phase of Alchemy.  Other than that, it could mean quintessence.  From what I gather, studying alchemy via Julius Evola, symbols may have altered meanings in many cases.  Thus, you may have to learn each individual alchemist's "grammar," and so forth.

What is the symbol of Terra mean? I am new to alchemy.
Notshurly's avatar
It represents Earth. It can take or deposit energy from earth or use it for other little tricks.

If creation is the basic transmutation symbol, which is  used in every alchemy circle, than it is wrong, it is a five pointed star not a eight pointed star, and even if it is not, put equivalent exchange into play, you cant make something out of nothing.

You can make something out of nothing. Matter and antimatter. 1 + -1 = 0

Alchemy symbols sometimes (read "most of the time") don't line up with symbols used elsewhere. It's simply encryption.

r u sure these are correct others show water differently..
Notshurly's avatar
Yes. I'm pretty damn sure.

The symbol for creation... What is it called and how do I make it in Serif Draw Plus? Because I've been fucking around, trying to make it and I can't figure it out.
Notshurly's avatar
I just connected the dots, literally. That's how I made almost all second phase stars.
Dylancn's avatar
I managed to make one (a while back, that is). But I'm gonna go ahead and ask anyway. How do you f*king get the dots in the right place? I'm OCD and I give a shit about the star being perfect.

Make a shape with the sides equal to the number of points you want on the star, then connect the corners of the shape accordingly using the line tool.

I have several other tutorials you might check out, and I'll be publishing more soon.
or could anybody help?
is that really the sign for life? i tried to find it but couldnt, maybe give me a link or reference ?
Notshurly's avatar
I don't have any references right on hand, but it's been used many times by many others, and I'm pretty sure it was in the dictionary of occult, which was where I found lots of symbols.

Do you use Serif Draw Plus for all these images you make? All of them, some of them, what?
