Wandlore and other cultural tradition say you might just have the perfect wand based on the day that you were born. If you were born between August 5 and September 1, here are the magical properties associated with those dates.
Wand Wood: Hazel / Linden
Because hazelwood isn’t available to us in wand-sized pieces, we use an American wood with similar properties: linden. Linden is great for love and beauty magic.
Wand Core: Phoenix feather and dragon tooth
Cores aren’t assigned by birthdate, but we have found that phoenix feather is the most popular pair and dragon also does well.
Birthstone: Peridot / Sapphire
August’s stone is peridot. Peridot is associated with stress relief and calming anger.
September’s stone is Sapphire. Sapphire is associated with creativity and inner peace.
Zodiac Symbol: Leo / Virgo
Leo (July 23-August 22) is often characterized as confident and loyal. Virgo (August 23 – September 22) is often characterized as practical and intelligent.
Element: Fire / Earth
Leo is a fire element; Virgo is earth.
Animal Totem: Bear
A bear is thoughtful and practical.
See all of our wand woods by birthdate. Please note that we do not regularly carry all of these materials and some may be exceptionally expensive in a custom wand (ex. April’s birthstone is diamond…)
