Spent the afternoon with Alex making sigils on stones and sea glass
Planetary: Moon or Venus
Sacred to: Artemis, Diana, Hekate.
Divination: Has been burned as a smudge to cleanse and empower divination tools such as scrying mirrors, crystals balls, tarot decks, etc. Tea of mugwort has also been used to wash water-friendly divination tools. Tea has also been drank before performing divination. Burn as incense for psychic workings and stimulate the psychic mind.
Altered States: Tea, smoke, or incense to help alter state of mind. As this helps the psychic mind it can also be used before ritual to better sense the energy you’re working with and open yourself to any messages from the divine.
Dreams: Smoked before bed, put in dream pillows, or burn as incense. Enhances dreaming and may aid with lucid dreaming.
Astral Travel/Journeying: Smoke or burn as an incense to help pass through to other realms and enhance the out of body experience.
Energy Body: Acupuncturists have used it by squeezing the fluffed (rubbed) dried plant material into cones with the fingers, placing it on acupunture points directly on the skin, and lighting it up so it smoulders. Others use it in smudge stick form and bring the hot end close to the acupuncture point or have the ball of moxa (mugwort) on an acupuncture needle to keep it off the skin. If directly on the skin, some remove it from the skin before it burns and others leave it burn on the skin until it blisters and scars. Moxabustion encourages flow of blood and energy. I use it directly on the skin, but remove it once it starts to get too hot.
Avoid if pregnant. Do not overuse or use for longer than a week. As with any herb if consumed or smoke be sure of quality and be sure you aren’t sensitive to it or allergic first.
And yes. I filled up the trunk of my car with this stuff. Twice. And I’ll probably go back and get more once what I harvested last two times finishes drying. I have no room to hang any more lol, but I love this stuff.

Healing: Aragonite warms the extremities, bringing energy through the body. It treats Reynaud’s Disease and chills. It heals bones, aids calcium absorption, and restores elasticity to discs. It also ameliorates pain. Aragonite stops night twitches and muscle spasms. It strengthens the immune system and regulates processes that are proceeding too fast. It is useful for grounding floaty people into their body. Aragonite can be placed on a map to heal stress lines in the earth.
Position: Hold or place over affected part, or bathe with elixir. Place under pillow to combat restlessness at night. Makes a useful hand comforter. Can be worn as a pendant for grounding.

"Clear Quartz is known as the "master healer" and will amplify energy and thought, as well as the effect of other crystals. It absorbs, stores, releases and regulates energy. Clear Quartz draws off negative energy of all kinds, neutralising background radiation, including electromagnetic smog or petrochemical emanations. It balances and revitalises the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual planes. Cleanses and enhances the organs and subtle bodies and acts as a deep soul cleanser, connecting the physical dimension with the mind. Clear Quartz enhances psychic abilities. It aids concentration and unlocks memory. Stimulates the immune system and brings the body into balance. Clear Quartz (Crystal Quartz, Rock Crystal) harmonises all the chakras and aligns the subtle bodies."
