female cycles. sacred feminine. magic.
Artemisia is connected to the sacred feminine, for women and men, sensuality, cosmic connection, third eye opening, visions and dreams. Its energy helps us relax and harmonize and smooth the physical cycles of menstruation, menopause and digestion. Taken as an infusion before bed, it stimulates vivid dreams. Mugwort can also be burned as incense or smoked for deep meditation, trance states. It's not a weed that gets you high, to be blunt; it does open a more direct channel for lunar magic.
Artemisia is ruled by the Moon and Venus. In medical astrology, Venus rules the metamorphosis of cells, reproduction, enrichment and transformation of cells, preservation of the body, complexion, reproductive system, urinary bladder, kidneys and harmony between all body systems. The organs of the human body ruled by the Moon are the breasts, saliva, uterus and blood. Artemisia is thus an herb of harmony, self-love, empathy and connection to higher mental planes.
