To Consecrate a Wand
I have three different ways to consecrate a wand in my personal BOS.
The first is similar to Athame dedication. Rub the wand with fresh
basil, rosemary or oak leaves. At sunrise, lay the wand on the ground
with it's point towards the South. Walk clockwise around it three
times, scattering bay leaves over it. Take it up and stand facing South
holding it upward but with arms lowered, invoke the God to infuse the
wand with his power. Point it to the sky, invoking the Goddess to
charge the wand with her love and power.
The spices aren't necessary if you can't get them or must do this
privately and it can't be done this way. You can meditate on the
element of Fire, which is the element of the wand and skip the spices
:-) Also, some just invoke the Goddess to their wand and see it as Her
symbol and therefore do not invoke the God for this one.
Here is the dedication I used (with some personal modifications not
Take the wand outdoors at sunset and rub it with fresh lavender,
eucalyuptus or mint leaves (my above note on spices applies again -
meditation on Fire is just as effective). Raise the wand in the air
towards the Moon (if the Moon is not visible, as it will not be where I
live tonight - drat!) then point the wand to the East. And invoke the
Goddess. Again at sunrise the next day take your wand out of doors and
annoint with the spices or meditate on Fire, point it to the East and
invoke the God.
Once again, Goddess and God appear in my innvocations as I revere them
equally. But it can be modified if you wish your tool charged only by
If you must do the ritual indoors here is a suggestion.
Cast your Circle and secure your sphere. Place the wand on your
pentacle or a plate of salt. Touch the wand with the point of your
Athame or just with your projective hand.
Send projective energy into the wand.
Sprinkle the wand with salt.
Hold the wand up in your projective hand saying
I charge you by the Old Ones, by the omnipotent Goddess and God: by the
virtues of the Sun, Moon and Stars; by the powers of the Earth, Air,
Fire and Water, that I shall obtain all I desire through you. Charge
this by your power, Old Ones!
I haven't used this as I aim to get out of doors for tool consecretation
even if I have to wait longer than I'd like. But I did write it down as
it sounded good to me at the time :-) This can be used for any tool.
Hope this helps. Enjoy that Moon tonight - I hope She shines bright for
you. This is a free set of rituals available from New Moon Occult Shop. If you paid for it or bought it please let us know so we can stop it and make sure everyone gets these for free.
