Is there a way to add an initial line to a paragraph with line spacing=Double?

Is there a way to add an initial line to a paragraph with line spacing=Double? I know about the Spacing...above paragraph but that gives me a fixed measurement ie not proportional to the font. What I am specifically trying to do is create a section break (not a page break) with a centered asterisk and a line above and below. I'm trying to do this by adding a line with one asterisk and styling it centered, double line spacing, but although I get a line below I don't get a line above.

Thanks for any help
