Clichéd as it may sound, the
wand is one of the most popular magical
tools in Wicca, as well as in some ceremonial magic traditions.
It has a number of magical purposes. A wand is used for the directing
of energy during a ritual. Because it’s a phallic symbol it is
used to represent male energy, power, and virility. Representative of
the element of Air (although in a few traditions it symbolizes Fire),
the wand can be used to consecrate a sacred space, or invoke deity.
