Mystically speaking, some of star anise’s magical properties include improving one’s telepathic abilities, providing divine healing and protection, and boosting one’s chances of having a successful undertaking. To stimulate your intuition simply inhale the perfume of this herb. The largest of the seeds can be used as a pendulum if it is strung on a length of black or purple string.
For moon-based divinations, try using star anise. Once a month, when the moon is not visible, the stars stand out more clearly against the night sky. A starless sky is represented by the shape of star anise. If you want to “turn on” your intuition during divination, put this on the altar.
According to Chinese superstition, a Star Anise with more than eight points is a lucky find and can ward off the evil eye. Put it in a sachet or mojo bag and carry it with you to protect yourself from harm. You can string the mature seed pods together to make a wreath for your door.
Star anise is a powerful magical herb with several uses, including increasing one’s luck, enhancing one’s psychic abilities, shielding one from harm, purifying the air, and attracting a new love interest.
