About the Athame
An athame is a ritual knife used in Wiccan and other Pagan or magickal traditions. It may be used symbolically in a ritual, or to direct energy, or both.
The athame represents the active energy of Fire (or Air, depending on the exact tradition). It acts as a conduit for the will of the user, and much like a wand, can focus and direct energy toward a specific task. You can use your athame to draw a boundary (as in circle casting), cut energetic cords, or charge objects with energy.
On a Wiccan altar, the athame stands for the masculine principle of the Divine, and the chalice represents the feminine. When brought together they, represent the God and Goddess in their union.
Traditionally, an athame is a purely magickal tool—it is never used for mundane tasks, for violence, or for cutting physical objects at all.
