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.

Please use the contact form if you wish to comission a particular type of stick, or alternatively call into 'Mrs Darley's Herbal' in Bewdley Museum in Worcestershire and take a look at our current stock.



Thank you for your interest in our sticks and staffs

















 
July 2018

What an active month this is. 
Planets visible this month are Mercury, Venus and Jupiter in the evening sky and Mars and Saturn in the early morning sky.
On the 13th there is a partial solar eclipse, albeit, it will only be visible from south Australia and the Indian and Pacific oceans.
The 13th also brings the birth of the new Wort Moon which also happens to be the nearest new moon to earth of the year.
On the 15th the Capricornid meteor shower is at its height.
On the 27th we are treated to a full lunar elcipse in the sign of Aquarius, which will be visible from the UK as the moon begins to rise at 20.49. The colours won't be as deep initially due to the moon being so close to the horizon. The eclipse will be total at 21.21 and will end at 00.28. This will also be the smallest new moon of the year.
These eclipses denote challenging times where nothing can stay the same if we are to survive and thrive. Expect the unexpected.
May the Summer gods smile down kindly on us all.
