Theban Alphabet

Recently, I bought some Magickal Bath Salts from our local pagan store and noticed that the shop owner had Theban writing on some of her bottles--which I commented on. 

She (a Cabot witch) was surprised that I knew what the symbols were.

Well, it's the Witches' Alphabet, right? I quipped.

She asked me if I could read it.

Alas, I could not.

But now that I've gotten hold of this touchstone--I can!

And you can, too. 

[insert toucan joke here] ::wink::

Have you ever used Theban for magickal work? Sigils? Spells? Grimoires? Tattoos? I'd love to hear about it in the comments below!
