Information on the Meaning and Uses of the Altar Tools
Athame (knife) - Elegantly simple 6 inch athame with double edged stainless steel blade, wood handle, brass trim, and its own sheath. Athames are used in many Magickal and spiritual paths. Athames are a traditional Magical tool used in Wiccan, Witchcraft and Pagan ceremonies, rituals and spell crafting. Athames are associated with the element fire and commonly used to direct energy.
Wand - 8 inch wood wand, hand rubbed with beeswax and oil, crafted at 13 Moons. Magick wands have been used for thousands of years and are still used today in spiritual ways: by calling upon deities to be present within a ceremony; drawing the Magick circle creating your sacred space; directing energies so that the energy is released in the direction the Magick wand is pointed; and for healing, to draw negative energy from the dis-eased body. The wand is usually associated with air but sometimes also with fire.
Chalice- Silver-plated chalice featuring the pentacle and accented with spiraling stem. Chalice measures 4 inches. The ritual chalice is used on the altar for the element of Water and is feminine. Use it to hold any appropriate liquid for your Magick.
Pentacle Tile - Black wooden Altar Tile with brass or silver pentacle inlay. The ritual pentacle tile was traditionally used for protection, blessing other items, and as the focal point of strength and meditation while casting spells and other ritual and ceremonial work. Altar pentacles are usually feminine and of the element Earth.
Altar Cloth - Approximately 16" x 16"; purple and black with a pentacle in the center. Altar cloths were traditionally used in sacred areas as protection during ritual and ceremonies. The altar is very significant to your rituals; your central focus is at your altar. Whether Nature's ground, a tree stump, a wooden stool, the box with your set or an elaborate table, this is where you honor life, bless your tools, and work magic(k)! Altar cloths are not merely for decoration; the mundane is left behind as you spread out your altar cloth allowing the spiritual, the mystery and the Magick to begin! If your altar has other daily purposes (such as if you are using your coffee table or piano stool for your altar), your altar cloth prevents your ritual tools from receiving these energies.
Cauldron - 2x2 Brass Cauldron Incense Burner. Important Witch's tool traditionally used for cooking and brewing! It represents the Water element, the direction of West and also the Fire element. Use for scrying, incense burning, mixing herbs, oils and brews!
Ritual Bell - Bells are used to mark the specific points during ritual like beginnings, changes, end, etc. Bells are frequently associated with the sounds of the Spirits.
