I love this herb! I am always drawn to it, and I want to use it, but the correspondences I've found for it do not feel right.
I chew anise seeds once in a while (the regular ones) and use them in magick but they do not give me that same intense attraction that the star anise does. And star anise as not as medicinally valuable as the normal anise so it doesn't get the same attention.
I'm not sure why I am drawn to it or how I should use it. But I've been getting this strong pull to it for years!
I feel that it has more to do with the star shape then the herb itself, and I know what the symbol means, but I feel as though my ancestors are pointing to this for something it has been used for in the past. The symbol itself does not attract me but this herb does.
I've scoured books and only get a blurb about this awesome plant.
There has to be more magick history to an herb shaped like a star! Has to be.
Does anyone know more about this herb? Practices? A culture that used it and what they used it for? Any tiny detail would be very much appreciated.
I keep wanting to buy it and bring it home. I hold it in my hand and I get the urge to do a spell! But what spell? That's my problem.
