You know, now that I look into the nature of the plant mimosa, the more I think “accidentally” burning it during my ritual of Mercury wasn’t a mistake. It’s one of the few plants that can move in response to stimulus: is that Saturnine or is it Mercurial? Mimosa teniuflora is used in Ayauasca brews, according to Wikipedia. Again: there’s Mercurius as psychopomp.
Since we like to use lavender for a lot of day-to-day applications around this house (it’s a wonderful antiseptic), I’d like to find a different scent for Mercurial magic. But then what do I use for Saturn? Any suggestions? Ideally, something in the Morning Star line, because it’s such good incense, but failing that I’ll just find some myrrh.
One way or ‘nother, I want to find something by a week from Saturday, since that’s when I’m scheduled to evoke a particular Saturnine Olympick spirit.
