The wand has been used in magical and religious rites throughout history.The wand is a symbol of masculine fertility and is a phallic symbol.

In modern witchcraft, the wand is associated with the South, the element of Spirit, and the qualities of Will and Desire. Along with the athame, it is one of the tools that can be used to symbolically represent to God in the Great Rite.

According to Gerald Gardner, the wand is one of the three working tools that a witch must have in every operation.
