Tools and Altars

Learn about ritual tools, such as the athame and chalice, and the Wiccan altar.

Acquiring Too Many Wiccan Accessories star
When we first discover the Wiccan path, our enthusiasm can lead us to acquire way too many accessories. Can too much materialism distract from the spiritual? Find out how to scale back if your instincts lead you toward minimalism.

Book of Shadows Versus Book of Mirrors star
Think of your Book of Shadows as a cookbook and your developing Wiccan skills as recipes to be written down and organized. Your Book of Mirrors is your personal journal, which details the results of practicing those skills.

Do We Need Ritual Tools star
Do Wiccans and pagans need ritual tools such as the ones Gerald Gardner specified? No, but they can be a huge advantage for two reasons.

Do You Need a Portable Altar star
There are many reasons why you might need a portable Wiccan altar, and there are many ways to create one.

How to Choose Your Wiccan Wand star
The wand is one of the four ritual tools found on a traditional Wiccan altar. Thanks to the Harry Potter books and movies, everybody nowadays knows about wands. Just as shown in those books and movies, the wand is used to channel, focus, and direct psychic energy.

My Ritual Tools star
Ritual tools are an important part of our spiritual life. If you are a solitary practitioner, you might be wondering what others have chosen and why. Here are my ritual tools. Remember, I practice Wicca with a strong Asatru flavor.

Starting Your Book of Shadows star
When choosing the format for your Book of Shadows, you want something easy to maintain and well-organized for useful retrieval of information. Otherwise, there are as many unique ways to build a Book of Shadows as there are Wiccans.

Types of Wiccan Altars star
There is no best way to put together a Wiccan altar, which will be as unique as the Wiccan who creates it, but here are the three most common types.

Use a Wand Or Athame star
The athame and the wand are both phallic symbols used for similar purposes in Wiccan rituals and spellwork. If you must choose, which one should you get? That depends on you and your associations with each ritual tool.

What Are the Wiccan Ritual Tools star
Wicca founder Gerald Gardner borrowed the ritual tool tradition from ceremonial magic. As you learn about the ritual tools of Wicca, you can make informed decisions about whether each tool fits into your spiritual practice.
