  2. I should have read this before commenting on the stang post, lol. My late teacher also said the besom was used to protect one from wild animals when going through the woods in the dark to Sabbat. A stang’s shape can also be used in this way to immobilize an animal, or attacking human, and a smaller stang can be used to catch a snake. My elder Priestess, who does card readings so has a lot of strangers coming through her door, lays her broom horizontal on her step so one has to step over it, which is even disconcerting to me her priest, lol. I have also seen them used to seal the temple door once the temple is readies before the coven enters.
