This is a list of tools used by practitioners of Wicca.
The Primary tools
The wand represents the element of air in Gardnerian Wicca (some other traditions equate the wand with the element of fire). The wand is traditionally used to call upon elemental spirits.
The chalice (or goblet, or cup) represents the element of Water. Chalices usually contain wine (or non-alcoholic beverages for those who don’t drink alcohol). It also represents the female/feminine energy and is associated with the womb of the Goddess.
The ritual knife of Wicca is called an athame and represents the element of fire in Gardnerian Wicca (some other traditions equate the athame with the element of air). The athame is used to direct energy, such as during the casting of magickal circles. It also represents the male/masculine energy.
The Pentacle is often a disc with the pentagram inscribed and is used to represent the element of Earth. Other symbols can be used such as the triquetra or Goddess symbols. It is used to charge things that is placed upon it and also to consecrate other items. It represents the female/feminine energy.
A traditional broom, most used for sweeping away negative energy.
A white-handled knife, used for carving and cutting into candles and herbs, and the like – something you do traditionally not do with athame.
- Censer and incense
A heat-proof container for incense. Used to symbolize the element of air.
Represents the gift of birth-death-rebirth, also a representation of knowledge and inspiration. The cauldron is a female aspect and symbolizes the element of water.
