The art of geomancy is a form of divination that employs a combination of astrology, spiritwork, and sortilege. It offers grounded focused answers to fundamental questions, and presents a system of profound planetary sorcery for addressing everyday concerns and ambitions.
Geomantic readings are excellent at relating specific issues to deeper underlying forces and patterns. It is grounded and practical, while also providing more mystical perspectives and meditations.
One of the lesser-known forms of divination, the oracle of European geomancy emerges in the medieval period and is said to draw on the gnomic wisdom of the Earth and its elementals. A full geomancy chart (sometimes called a shield) produces symbolic interpretations of twelve different areas of one’s life, before synthesising a three-part answer to a particular question.
The geomantic divination system is made up of sixteen possible figures, and each figure can signal favourable or unfavourable outcomes depending on the nature of the question and even the eventual answer. A geomantic reading can not only assess particular life circumstances, but also trace the possible roots of such circumstances.
Geomancy is an especially good form of divination for providing sophisticated answers to yes-or-no questions, as it is able to extrapolate wider contexts and provide a combination of straightforward judgments and deep themes upon which to reflect further.
