Metatron's Symbols:

Metatron's 'first' transcribed primary symbol, which is actually thought to be a simplified version of the "cube" symbol below. This symbol was used in the Euphrates-Tigris region to represent the sun as the"filter" for the voice/power of the sun god Shamash, who was called 'the greatest power', or the' highest divinity.'

The symbol actually represents the sun as an eye surrounded by tonguse, or a intstrument of measurement and communication for the God to be known to man. The 'rays' of the sun were seen as a voice of the God's will.

A symbol associated with Metatron which originally meant the 'force' or essence of God's oneness in the Trinity. It particularly became known as a symbol for the holy spirit, and therefore the Shekinah and later the Virgin Mary. In it's most contemporary usage, it denoted holidays associated with Mary on clog almanacs. Specifically, it first represented the descending of power on mankind from above, as in annunciation and ministering. It is associated with Metatron, Sandalphon and the Messiah, who each 'speak' or minister for the Triune God.

A variant of an ancient symbol for Jupiter that originally meant "personality raised above matter." It represented the 'king of the Gods' and wisdom of his law. It is associated with Metatron based on similar properties of expansion, authority, scholarly wisdom, and his role as the "Angel of the Lord."

A symbol of Metatron that represents potential power, authority, and divine representation. Variations of this symbol were worn in ancient times by priests, royalty & inscribed in statue depictions of God to indicate a representation of God, which is a primary role of Metatron. I have read that an accurate representation contains 7 horizontal bars to represent the "7 Earths" or "7 Heavens."

Metatron's Cube is a figure in the Euclidean plane created from 13 equal circles with lines from their centers extending out to the other 12 circles. Six circles are placed in a hexagonal pattern around a central circle, with six more extending out along the same radial lines. This pattern shares 2 dimensional resonance with the Flower of Life and the first three Platonic solids, although if additional lines are drawn the other two platonic solids can be found as well. It is a Sacred Geometry figure that contains geometric figures representing shapes such as the platonic solids, a sphere, and a torus, and also used the golden ratio of phi.

It represents the "face" or nature of God the Father as it is manifesrt in creation. It is a symbol depicting the seven days of creation in which the Judeo-Christian God created life (like the Flower of Life). It represents Metatron as a personality of 72 souls (see the Names of Metatron) & the divided nature of God's personality. It is a component of the Flower of Life - a symbol of the pattern of space/time and creation. The cube represents divinity in matter, and is an accurate representation of Metatron as "the lesser YHVH."

The cube is both a "map and metaphor" of creation. It represents the gridwork of human consciousness (in God's image) and the framework of the Universe. It is the Matrix in which everything is represented which is contained in a three dimensional being. It also contains a wealth of holy symbols such as a depiction o the Star of David, the Pentagram, the 12 disciples or the 12 tribes, the labors of Hercules and the zodiac signs, etc.

The Metatron Cube is multidimensional. Above is a representation in '3D'.

The Sephiroth, or Tree of Life, is the symbolic representation of God's nature 'laid out' in creation. It is said to be derived from "unravelling" Metatron's cube, which is a more 'accurate' representation of the 'form' of these emanations (as the lowest and highest Sephirah are overlapping, but not displayed as such in the 2 dimensional Tree of Life symbol above).



Seals:

The seal of Metatron, used for invocations. It contains his primary symbol - the Metatron Cube.

A variation of the Flower of Life, of sacred geometry, with multiple Metatron cubse arranged to form a flower-like pattern with a sixfold symmetry, similar to a hexagon. The center of each circle is on the circumference of six surrounding circles of the same diameter.

The Flower of Life is a visual expression of the "pattern" of creation & of the Holy Spirit. It represents the connections life weaves through all sentient beings, and it is believed to contain a type of Akashic Record of basic information of all living things. The symbol of the Tree of Life and Metatron's cube are derived from the Flower of Life symbol. The pattern of creation it represents contains all manifested things & potentially manifested things.

There is a wealth of information on this symbol, but only the derivation of the Metatron Cube from it is directly associated with Metatron himself.


Other Symbolic association:

The Ark of the Covenant was highly associated with Metatron. It was a sacred container, wherein rested the Tablets of stone containing the Ten Commandments as well as Aaron's rod and manna. According to the Biblical account, the Ark was built at the command of God, in accord with Moses' prophetic vision on Mount Sinai (Exodus 25:10-16). Metatron is referenced as being the voice of the flaming tree which delivered the message and instructions for building the Ark. God communicated with Moses "from between the two cherubim" on the Ark's cover (Exodus 25:22), through the Metatron. Instructions on care, handling and the building of the Temple room and Tabernacle which shrouded it were delivered by Metatron. Both the Ark and the operation of the Temple was supervised by the angel Metatron. His presence was said to 'sit' between the Cherubim as an Earthly presence that transcended from God's seat upon his Throne in Araboth. So, the Ark was a representation of the Throne of God, where his presence dwelled on Earth.

Metatron was the presence at the burning bush on Mt. Sinai (or Horeb) who spoke God's will to Moses there. As such, the burning bush represents Metatron symbolically, who is called the "Angel of the Voice" and the "Angel of God's Law."

"And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed." Exodus 3:2

Thank you again for your help! That's a heck of a lot of information, and good information, too!

Does Metatron have a line sigil? I found this sigil but I'm not sure if it really belongs to him or not... :unsure:

Yes, that sigil is attributed to Metatron.

There are two reasons it is not popularly distributed as an 'personal' sigil...

One, it is a sigil 'created' using a technique called the "Rose Cross", whereby the actual letters of the name are used to trace a symbol shape. (Most line sigils are made this way.)

For the technique, see here:

Rose Cross Sigil Creator

The name "Metatron" is actually a title. The Metatron has at least 72 names & so it is essentially a sigil pertaining to the title. So when using this title to create the sigil, it definitely becomes less personal to the being Metatron. This would not matter so much with a seal, but sigils are usually used for invocation of the personality of an angel, more than his role.

Two: If you look at the method for making the sigil & try to trace it, you will see that it is a very complex pattern & doesn't actually shape easily. So there is some argument as to whether or not this is the true shape.

However, it is definitely a script credited to Metatron & so I will add it to his symbol profile, thank you.

EDIT:
Here is an illustration of the Metatron sigil within the rose cross, so that you can see where the vowels are selectively omitted to create a simpler shape:
