Here is a complete guide to the lost art of geomancy - one of the major divination systems that are part of the Western magical tradition.

Geomancy is simple, quick, and direct - anyone can get answers to any question in a matter of moments by learning how to read the patterns revealed by the 16 symbolic figures formed of single and double points. During the Middle Ages and Renaissance, geomancy was used by everyone from popes to peasants because it provided practical, useful results.

Often mistaken for feng shui or ley lines, or hidden within poorly explained tables and charts, geomancy has become something of a lost art - until now. Earth Divination, Earth Magic provides a fascinating look into the history, theory, and practice of geomancy, including a thorough set of instructions for both casting and interpreting a chart for yourself, or a friend.

I bought this book in order to further my studies of geomancy. I was able to download and use the ebook version immediately, once the order had been placed - and the hardcopy book itself arrived in perfect nick a few days after the order was placed.

This is just the book for beginners to geomancy. It explains the geomantic figures, the creation of geomantic shields, the connections to astronomy, the long history of geomancy, and its origins in the Middle East and Africa, as well as its heyday in the Renaissance as the Western answer to the Chinese I Ching.

As a bonus, the book also describes how to use geomantic sigils in magic, in the creation of talismans and other such items to enhance your workings - or to provide the medium through which to work your will in workings.

Geomancy is one of the oldest forms of magic going. It is well worth buying this book to begin your pursuit of this neglected but not forgotten art.
