This season, mid autumn when the veils between worlds are thinnest is a time when ancestors are revered. Many cultures celebrate this cycle of the year and honor those who've gone before. Notable holidays include All Saints Day, Halloween, Day of the Dead, and Samhain. Many species of artemisa plants which are part of the aster family can be found flowering in autumn.

Where artemisia like mugwort, wormwood and sagebrush have a strong lunar aspect. Like other artemisias Mugwort does not have the ray of petals found in their solar siblings like daisies.
