From the Inside Flap
The Art and Practice of Geomancy teaches readers how to divine the answers to life's everyday questions about health, luck, new jobs, and love, as well as those less mundane tasks such as finding buried treasure, predicting the weather, being released from prison, and identifying secret enemies. It 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.

I use this pretty much every week as I work my way through the curriculum in Mr. Greer's other book, the CELTIC GOLDEN DAWN. Daily now since 2013, I've been doing a geomancy shield reading, which I learned how to do in this book. This work is teaching me advanced techniques, processes for understanding my divinations after I've done them, and helped me develop a broader set of advanced skills through memory work, ritual, scrying and regular practice. It comes off the shelf at least twice a week, sometimes more. A great teaching tool, and once learned — a great reference work as well!
The author is very creative in his approach to the Oracle, and passes on some great ideas for magickal and meditative use of the figures.
I'm especially grateful for the information and symbols of the Spirit Intelligences related to the various topics of questions asked when divining.
There's a lot if deeply detailed information packed into this book. Enough to spend many happy hours delving into the 16 archetypically-powerful figures.
I've thought of myself as well-versed, especially in the divinatory aspects if Geomancy. But this book is expanding my understandings way outside the proverbial lines, and of the proverbial table!
I love knowing how little and limited my knowkedge is, because I get to duve into the adventure of learning!
Kudos, Mr. Greer!
KINDLE QUALITY ALERT:
All the images in the Kindle edition are too small - even when magnified - to view properly. I have notified Amazon about the issue.
I highly recommend spending the little extra money for the hard-copy book. It's well worth it.
Also, check out Greer's other books. These are my favorites so far: Monsters: An Investigator's Guide to Magical Beings,A World Full of Gods: An Inquiry into Polytheism,Mystery Teachings from the Living Earth: An Introduction to Spiritual Ecology,The New Encyclopedia of the Occult
It is well thought out. It corrects Agrippa's errors and keeps Regardie's work in perspective.
