Sticks and Staffs

Sticks and staffs can be used for a variety of practical and magickal purposes.
Here at Arcanus, Willie creates beautiful pieces made from a combination of hazel wood and antler
.
Sticks can be made to your individual requirements or bought from stock.
Prices range between £40 - £60



 
 
The majority of our sticks are hazel, and as a rule, are generally not over straightened.

We use deer antler and twisted hazel for the handle, a decorated collar, and antler ferrule - or a combination of the three.

We prefer our sticks to be left as 'long' as the hazel shank allows - if you would prefer a particular length, that is not a problem.

 All sticks are finished with several coats of yacht varnish.

 

The photograph above shows a pentacle embedded in the handle.

Thank you for your interest in our sticks and staffs

















 
JANUARY  2018

January 2nd brings us the first and largest Supermoon of the year as the Moon is in Perigee (closest approach to the earth). This Oak Moon completed the lunar cycle for the Celts and honoured the triumph of the Oak King over the Holly King at the Winter Solstice.
On the 4th, the Quandrantids meteor shower graces our night skies, although you may see its effects up until the 6th at around 80 meteors per hour.
Both Mars and Jupiter are visible in the early morning sky around 3.30am from the 7th to around mid month.
The 17th brings us the new Wolf Moon, a time of abstinence and suspension after the dark time, for the ancestors knew that the worst of the winter was yet to come.
Finally we have that rare event of what many people refer to as 'The Blue Moon', albeit this term does have many meanings. Whichever ,meaning you may attribute to it however, the 31st January does bring us the second full moon of this calendar month as well as a total lunar eclipse. The eclipse will not be visible from the UK , although its effects will still be felt energetically. It is a time of co-operation, of finding a way to work together, rather than tearing each other apart.
These are interesting times - journey well and make your time upon this earth count.
