Make Yourself A Brand New Spring Wand


Any of the Equinoxes as wonderful times to make new ritual items that you might be needing. For Spring, how about making yourself a brand new Wand!


Items You Need:


A small tree branch

Three silver coins;

Three sugar cookies

Three each of walnuts, hazel nuts and almonds

A sharp knife

A paper bag


Use the guide below to choose the wood for the wand you want to make.


Birch – New beginnings

Hawthorn – Protection

Hazel – Wisdom

Poplar- Succcess

Maple – Longevity

Beech – Divination

Rowan – Magick

Oak – Power Magick

Apple – Love

Pine – Birth

Cedar – Strength

Elm – Dignity



Place the coins, cookies, and nuts in the paper bag. Choose the tree from which you want to make your wand. Go to the tree, and ask for permission to cut one to its small, new branches. Neatly cut the branch from the tree. Thank the tree for its branch. Gently place the coins, cookies, and nuts at the base of the tree as an offering of thanksgiving.


Trim the branch so that is measures from the inside of your elbow to the tip of your middle finger. This measurement makes the wand uniquely yours. Scrape the bark off of the branch and allow the wood to dry. Once the wood is thoroughly dry you will want to carve or paint your own personal symbols on it.
