Wands 2

I finished another wand today! This one was created for my husband. It was also created with apple wood. It has a lovely quartz at the tip and is wrapped in copper. The handle is wrapped in bamboo cord. Bamboo is masculine and carries both luck and protection energy. It can be used to break hexes as well.

This one was fun to make! The only bad thing that happened is I burned my finger on some hot glue.

Witchy Wand

I have been working with wands lately. I’ve been super drawn to working with wood and so I decided to just go with it. Apple wood has been the most appealing. Here is a little magickal info on apple wood.

Apple Wood is known for feminine energy. It is ruled by the planet Venus and the sign of Cancer. Although wood is earth energy it has some watery feel to it. It is associated with both Diana and Morrighan, this works well for me since I work with both of these deities. Samhain and rebirth are also associated with the apple. These wands work great for healing, fertility, love, the fairy realm, visions, piercing the veil, and the otherworld.

Ogham: Quert

Runes: Ing, Peorth, Cweorth

I had fun carving into the staff of the wand but it really does not show up well in photos. I carved three things that have magickal significance to me into it. This part was a lot harder than I thought it would be. After finding the right tool it became much easier.

I added a rose quartz to my wand. Rose quartz has been my favorite stone for as long as I can remember. It just seemed like the perfect fit. I went to the rock store and found a few that I liked. Rose quartz also has an association with feminine energy. It works really well with the apple energy.

Rose quartz can be used for:

Balancing yin and yang

Restoring harmony

Love

Self-love

Positive outlook

Self-esteem

Joy

Oneness

Release of stress

Union with the divine

Healing

Energy: Receptive

Element: Earth and Water

Planet: Venus

Deities: Freyr & Aphrodite

I had to find a way to attach my stone to the end of my wand. I used copper wire. This part was complicated. When I work magickally I like to work in threes so copper wire was the third element in my magickal recipe.

Copper is associated with:

Chakra: Crown, heart, and solar-plexus

Element: Water

Planet and Goddess: Venus

Balance

Healing

Fertility

Love

Property

Harmony

Peace

Transferring energy

So as you can see I have constructed a wand with feminine elements. I have used three similar items to build intent and energy.

I also have a stang in process. It is like a staff but it has two points at the top. This is going to take some time to finish.

I can’t wait to show you how the stang works out! I really love making my own tools, it is very satisfying. Do any of you make your own tools? I would be interested to see photos or hear about it.
