Wand is first symbolically constructed, as the word of the will,
being an attainment to a certain level of control, which sparks the
spiritual-fire at the core of every star � and these are one. Thus
is the Wand compatible and complimentary to the element of fire, and
the creative energies found therein.
It is important to the Philosophus to comprehend the nature of the
Wand (Liber IV,
Part 2) as the means to compel holy obedience, and this in turn
solidifies the correct devotion required within the heart of the
Philosophus. Else, it may be that the forthcoming Adept-ship be cast
as a thing of evil.
The ceremonial construction and consecration of the Wand is formed and
performed with whatever skill is currently possessed by the
Philosopher, and following the instructions in Liber CDXII.
However, some suggested guidance is now included for consideration,
but may be disregarded in favour of other methods.
Let the practical construction be
focused that suitable energies from the Philosopher, this greatly
affected and enhanced by the state of self, be infused into the Wand.
Let the Temple be arranged that the
Wand, although accompanied by other tools, is the central focus.
Let the method of construction be
reflected in the ceremony. Every action necessary to complete the Wand
is symbolically represented.
Let the �Deed to represent the
Universe� be formed as the name of the wand, and this as the word
of the will.
Let a method of charging be
included in the ceremony, and let it be compatible with the method
used in the construction.
Let the ceremony be finished with the wrapping of the Wand in
the fiery scarlet silk covering and placed within the Altar for three
days and nights, and let the thoughts of the Philosophus constantly
wander back to the Wand, yet resisting the urge to unwrap it until the
three days have elapsed.
