Empowerment Ceremony for Wands, Rods, Staves, Stangs, and Brooms


  • Red candle
  • Holy water
  • Salt
  • Empowering oil
  • Incense of your choice
  • Carving or wood-burning tool
  • Selection of magickal symbols
  • Pencil
  • 13 bricks or white stones
  • Cauldron

Time: New moon

Choose and carve the magickal symbols you desire on the piece. Build your circle with the bricks or stones. When you are finished sprinkle both wooden tool and circle with holy water.

Cast your circle around the stone circle, which will be in the center. Place the cauldron in the stone circle. Light the fire candle and place inside the cauldron. Call the quarters and invoke the deities. Place the wooden ritual piece inside the stone circle. Pass the four elements over the item. Stand over the circle, raise your arms to the heavens, and say:
“Mistress/Master of the Universe! I call thee forth to cleanse and consecrate this (item name).
Empower this (item) in the name of universal perfection!”

Outstretch both hands toward the item and say:
(Item name), I conjure thee in the name of the Mistress/Master of the universe to work all forms of magick for me! Ye shall conjure, banish, empower, or cast aside negative energies as I so dictate. Ye shall overcome all obstacles in the performance of these tasks. At my very touch ye shall awaken into life in preparation for any and all magicks and respond with perfection to my very will, and you shall retain your power in fallow days when magick is not required. As I will, so shall it be!”

Rub the item with the empowering oil, then draw an equal-armed cross in the air over the item to seal your work. Complete the ritual by offering a libation to the gods. Thank the deities and close the quarters. Take up the circle with your finger and place the circle energy in the tool by directing your finger at the tool and envisioning the energy leaving your finger and entering the tool. Leave the item in the light of the following full moon for at least one hour.
