The Magick Instruments required for conjuring Spirits

The Magick Wand

The magick wand or rod is a symbol of authority. It is an important weapon and symbol of supreme power. In witchcraft the wand should be made of hazel, having no branches or offshoots.

In necromancy the wand should be made of a graveyard tree and is an emblem of death.

The wand must be cut and trimmed on the day and in the hour of the Sun with the magick athame, while the following characters must be inscribed upon it on the day and in the hour of Mercury:


Let the following words be recited when the writing is finished:

“O ADONAY, most Holy and most Powerful, vouchsafe to consecrate and bless this Rod, so that it may possess the required virtue, O most Holy ADONAY, to whom be honour and glory for ever and over. Amen.”

Lastly, the instrument should be asperged, fumigated, stained with sacrificial blood and put away in the silken cloth. The magician always keeps his wand, when not in use, wrapped in silken cloth, of any colour except black or brown.

 

Athame or Arthame

The witch´s black-hilted knife, allegedly endowed with magical properties. It is used for drawing the magick circle as decribed in grimoires and textbooks on magic. It has always magick symbols or characters engraved on the one-sided blade, and sometimes the handle is also decorated.

Magick Robes

Their colours and design have symbolic significance. To put on a robe is a sign of assuming a frame of mind suitable to the ceremony to be performed.
