My research and personal experience tells me that, whatever the history of the hex sign, the practice has been thoroughly melded with the Christian religion. All of the pre-1990 publications I have read confirm that my grandmother's practice of empowering the design "in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. Amen" was shared by other practitioners.

I was taught that each design was a "painted prayer," the purpose of which was to manifest on Earth (in the physical realm) that which was asked of the Spiritual realm ("as above, as below"). My grandmother also taught me the signs she painted:

the basic "good fortune" rosette:

the Double Creators Star:

Pennsylvania Dutch Hex Sign to bind the blessings of prosperity

and a few others...
