Amoristic is a term I have selected for love. To some, amoristic suggests sexual or romantic love. I have applied it to include love for children, family, home, community and the incredible wide range of human emotion that love embraces.
Name: Artemisia vulgaris
Toxicity: considered toxic
Common Name: Mugwort
Applicable Plant Components: herb
Divinatory: (when combined with A. absinthium)
Anecdotal: In order to enhance practitioners’ skills, tools can
be washed with or placed on Artemisia vulgaris (along these lines I might note that it is believed that long before crystal balls European women descried with the hollow, glass balls used to float fishnets, no doubt washed or placed on Artemisia vulgaris). Artemisia vulgaris placates the energy left behind on a spot where an accident has occurred and helps restore clarity after mourning. It can be carried, strewn, hung or placed in shoes for protection as well as placed under pillows. As smoke or steam, Artemisia vulgaris is an agent of prophetic dreams, divination, astral projection and descrying. It enhances psychic ability and is regarded as an aphrodisiac when carried or placed under love nests. When carried, placed in footwear, worn as a wreath or belt, Artemisia vulgaris protects travelers against fatigue, predacity or injury from the elements as well as difficulties of all kinds perpetrated by malevolent spirits. It enhances the hunt for one’s personal medicine. Artemisia vulgaris is feminine, linked to sacred cycles and associated with circumstantial or ritual birth, death and rebirth. The spirit within it is invoked to address spiritual pain related to subjective experiences and the attrition or loss of spiritual energy or direction. It is a formidable incarnant for reconciling endopsychic wounds.
