With last week's Venus-Saturn opposition (Venus in Cancer opposing Saturn retrograde in Capricorn), I wanted to again mention yerba santa, a smudge that is excellent for working with both of these planetary energies. (It doesn't hurt that Mercury is in Libra, as this is air in air, and Libra is Venus-ruled, and Venus is now in fire-sign Leo - this makes smudging a really fitting option right now.)
Smudging with yerba santa is a delightful way to honor the energies at work now.
Yerba santa is used for spiritual cleansing and purification as with all smudging, but specifically for protection and boundary work, love, beauty, and the release of emotional pain from the heart chakra. It also supports growth, empowerment, and courage.
According to Crystalinks, yerba santa is used, "...to protect that which is ancient, sacred, and wild within yourself," and that sounds like a beautiful thing to do right now.
