Mugwort is used primarily as a visionary herb. It amplifies psychic vision and may induce prophetic dreams. An herb of the Goddess as Crone, mugwort encourages wisdom and observation. It is also a very protective herb against any negative energies or spirits. Associated with the element of earth and air, Venus and the Moon and ruled by Taurus and Libra.
Mugwort contains the chemical thujone, which is a mild intoxicant. If you are very sensitive to thujone, remember that it can be absorbed transdermally (through the skin).
