A wand that is used for magical purposes is often called a magic wand , rather than simply a wand. Wands are distinct from scepters , which have a greater thickness, are held differently, and have a relatively large top ornament on them. In modern times, wands are usually associated with stage magic or alleged real magic , but there have been other uses, all stemming from the original meaning as a synonym of rod and virge.

The creators of the Golden Dawn got their idea to use a wand, as well as their other main ritual objects dagger, sword, hexagrammic pentacle , and cup , from the writings of the mids occultist author Eliphas Levi. Levi himself mentioned most of those objects all except for the cup in his writings because they are in the Key of Solomon, whereas he got the cup from the tarot suit of cups.
In Levi's book Philosophie Occulte , he wrote a fake excerpt of a hebrew version of the Key of Solomon, and that fake excerpt was part of the inspiration for the Golden Dawn's ritual objects, and especially their lotus wand. In Wicca , wands are used to summon and control angels and genies.
