“You know about black sage already, don’t you?”
“Ah yeah, I’ve bought it before. I don’t use it that often, just once in a while when the moon is right.” I said, lying to the man at the spiritual shop down the road.
Black sage, or mugwort, is considered a sacred herb of Artemis, the Greek goddess of the moon. I use white sage frequently, more as an aromatic than a spirit cleanser, but black sage is a whole different beast. I later found out that its associated with psychic powers — often burned before crystal ball gazing and astral projection. The Native Americans, especially in California and Mexico, used it in healing, ceremonies.
