Star Anise, also known as Anise Estrella, is a well-known ingredient in protective and meditative incenses and is sometimes used as a charm for these purposes. It is also connected to Masculine Energy, Jupiter, and Air.
Many people like to carry a Star Anise in a Gris-Gris bag or Mojo Hand to ward off the Evil Eye. Star Anise is also used to bring Good Luck in Love, Money, and Health Matters. Some even say it brings Powerful Visions with meditation.
