The Ash Spiral Goddess Wand
healing, weather magick, enhances skills of art, protection, the poet’s tree, water magick
I could not help but call this wand the Spiral Goddess wand as it called to me to carve it as I did, and I could feel the female energies emerge. As you may know, the “spiral” symbol found on many Goddess statues was originally found carved on the stones of Newgrange, a neo-lithic tomb passage in Ireland. The Ash tree is a sacred tree of the ancient Celtic people. It just made sense.
As you may have read in an earlier blog regarding the Ash Tree, you would know that the tree is of Masculine gender. However, what Scott Cunningham did not write in his wonderfully specific Cunningham’s Encyclopaedia of Magickal Herbs, 1985-97, Llewellyn is that the Ash is actually closer to gender-neutral than most. It actually has Female and/or “effeminate” male energy, making it the perfect wand for either Male or Female Witches! And let us be honest…no matter what tree your wand comes from, it is the individual who puts their energy into their wand, whether they make their own wand or someone makes it for them.
Once we have a wand that we have a connection with, we put ourselves into it. Almost any Witch I’ve ever known will cleanse, consecrate, and empower their tools before use. That act alone puts much of the Witch’s intention into his or her wand. When we make a bespoke wand for a Witch, we often send the crystal (if one is ordered) and the instructions for enchanting the herbs that will go into the tip of the wand and how to attach the crystal to the tip. This act really makes the wand more personal to the Witch.
Many times, wands will have no crystal mounted in the tip, it may just be plain and pointed. There are other ways in which to make your pre-made wand your own. If you have certain Runes that are sacred to you, we can burn those symbols into your wand for you, or you can do it yourself. Other sigils that are sacred to you may be used. All you would do when ordering is to let us know which sigils you would like and if it is one that you have made up yourself, you can send us a picture of it.
We can also attach gemstones that resonate with you to your wand. There are so many different ways in which to “decorate” your wand, that as long as it is your wish, it will no doubt be your personal wand, even if we do make the wand for you. It will have your energy instilled in it!
