Term: Magical and Ritual Tools

DEFINITION:
The implements or weapons often used in the performance of rituals and magical rites. Traditionally these include tools for each of the magical elements: a stemmed goblet or chalice to represent water; a disk, paten, or pentacle to represent earth; a wand to represent fire; and a dagger to represent air. Some practitioners reverse the wand and dagger associations.

Other tools can include candles, sigils, Tarot cards, talismans, other types of wands, other types of daggers (especially the black-handled blade, sharp on both sides, known as the Athame and the lesser-used white-handled knife known as a Boline, most often used by Wiccans and Witches), gemstones, and many others.
