What is a Stang?
A stang is a tool used in witchcraft that is typically made from a forked stick. It is used to represent the Horned God, and can be used to draw energy and power from him. Some people also use it as a focus for their spells and rituals.
The history of stangs is not well documented, but it is believed that they were first used by the ancient Celts. They were used as a symbol of the Horned God, who was seen as a powerful and masculine deity. Over time, the use of stangs spread to other parts of the world, and they are now commonly used in witchcraft and Paganism.
The stang is often decorated with symbols of the Horned God, such as horns, antlers, or a sun. It may also be adorned with other symbols that represent the witch’s craft, such as pentacles or moons.

How to Make a Stang
To make a stang, the first step is to find a forked stick that is the right size for you. It should be long enough to hold comfortably in your hand, but not so long that it is difficult to carry around.
Once you have found a suitable stick, it is time to decorate it. You can use any symbols that you like, but some of the most common symbols include horns, antlers, and the sun. You can also add other symbols that represent your craft, such as pentacles or moons. When the stang is finished, it is ready to use.
The Witchcraft Stang
Working with a stang can be a powerful experience, but it is important to remember that the stang is just a tool. It should not be used to replace your own intuition and judgment, but rather to help you focus and amplify your own power.
Witches who use it should always remember to ask permission before taking energy from the Horned God, and to thank him afterwards. With proper respect and understanding, the stang can be a helpful tool in your witchcraft practice.
