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.

Thank you for your interest in our sticks and staffs

















 
January 2019

With the festive season past, our thoughts turn to the new year, healthy pursuits and the awakening of nature from her winter slumber. This is what the custom of January Wassailing is all about. The word means 'good health' or 'be whole' and this is what we wish for ourselves and each other. In addition this is the time when we sally forth into our orchards to awaken the apple trees, to chase away the dark spirits of winter and to bless them as the year opens up. If you don't have access to an orchard, place an apple somewhere you can dance around it, make lots of noise, have a drink of apple juice or cider and enjoy.
On the 4th in the heavens, the Quadrantids meteor shower becomes visible, whilst on the 6th we welcome in the new Wolf Moon along with a partial solar eclipse. This Moon waxes full on the 21st where we will also be able to witness from the UK a total lunar eclipse between 2.37GMT and 7.48GMT. Worth setting your alarm around 5am to see it in its totality. It is also a supermoon, so definitely a sight not to be missed.
Planets visible this month include Mars in the evening sky and Venus, Jupiter and Saturn in the morning sky from mid month.
May the increasing light bring you many blessings and Wassail.
