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

Geomancy is simple, quick, and direct—anyone can get answers to a 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.

One of the most widely respected voices in contemporary occult studies, John Michael Greer is the award-winning author of more than 50 books, including The New Encyclopedia of the Occult, The Druidry Handbook, The Celtic Golden Dawn, and Circles of Power. He has also written four books on peak oil and the future of industrial society, including The Long Descent and The Ecotechnic Future. An initiate in Freemasonry, the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, and the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids, Greer served as the Grand Archdruid of the Ancient Order of Druids in America (AODA) for 12 years. He lives in Cumberland, Maryland, with his wife Sara.
