Earth Divination Earth Magic - A Practical Guide to Geomancy (Contains the First Translation of Pietro de Abano's Fourteenth-Century Handbook of Geomancy)
Publisher: AEON Books
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.
