Wormwood is associated with the planet Mars and the element of fire or air.
Macerate wormwood and soak in wine for several days, then strain. Use this wine to induce visions, aid in astral projection, and divination. OR place several tablespoons of dried wormwood leaves and flowers in a jar, cover with light olive oil and seal. Let this steep for several weeks in a cool place, strain and use as an anointing oil for yourself or your divination tools. (See cautions on Healing With Wormwood below).
Wormwood flowers and leaves can be added to magical sachets for protection against accidents. Hang these in your car or carry them on your person.
Wormwood may also be used in spells to send harmful magic back on its sender and for spells for vengeance.
Combined with mugwort and burned, wormwood is useful for calling up spirits. Make sure the area is well-ventilated as the smoke can be very irritating to the eyes and throat and is toxic if inhaled. It is also said to be useful in banishing spirits
