Have you lost an important object? Are you taking on a new job? Looking for buried treasure? "The Art and Practice of Geomancy" teaches readers how to divine the answers to life's everyday questions, such as health, luck, new jobs, and love, as well as the less mundane: finding buried treasure, predicting the weather, being released from prison, identifying secret enemies. Greer delivers to readers an ancient system of divination in an easy-to-use form, requiring little more than a pen and piece of paper.Using a system of odd and even numbers, from a deck of cards, roll of the dice, or even by hitting sand with a stick to generate patterns, the reader learns to cast their own geomantic chart. And for those who wish to take the practice further, he offers deeper exercises for geomantic meditation, and geomantic ritual magic. "The Art and Practice of Geomancy" will appeal to pagans, followers of the Western Mystery Tradition, scholars of folk-magic and divination, and anyone who wants to take their past, present, and future into their own hands.
Each geomantic chart is, in a certain sense, a snapshot of one set of possibilities arising from the dance of the four elements in the anima mundi, and a sense of the dance itself - even if that sense is imperfect, as it may be, and wordless, as it must be - provides the context for every geomantic reading.
