Introduction to Astrological Geomancy

Astrology was the most significant occult science in Europe during the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. It was the link between magick and science. It was the most used divinatory art of all. Yet, because not all people could afford an education in geometry and mathematics, neither they could buy the organs to find the planetary positions in the sky, a lot of people turned to Geomancy for guidance, divination and advice.

Intermediate Techniques of Geomancy

Every system of divination has some techniques to aid the practitioner enter to that mind state for divination, to receive the messages from God. In Geomancy, the other side is the Cosmic Soul, the conscious part of the world that creates the movement of the body of the world. The oracle should clear the obstacles of the mind and modern thinking as well as the rapid way of acting and thinking and the technological miracles that put us away from our initial mother, nature.

Introduction to Geomancy

Geomancy, Geomanteia (γεωμαντεία) is a Hellenic word consisted of two words, gaia=earth and manteia=divination. Divination with earth, with soil, was a common method of divination from 1200 a.C. till the end of 17th century in Europe. It was so common to see people practising Geomancy daily that the books of the Middle Ages and Renaissance didn't contain any instructions on how to cast a geomantic chart because people were familiar with the method. Astrology and Geomancy were the most famous oracular techniques to obtain messages and guidance for centuries. The question is what happened? Why Geomancy has been disappeared from our modern occult world? And why a devotee of Hekate should learn about that method? Those are valid questions that they are going to be answered in this introductory article on geomancy.

Introduction to Hermetismos

Hermetic tradition is an oversimplified form of Platonism that was spread from Egypt during the Hellenistic Period. It was a mystery tradition for selected initiates, with books and papers circulating among the chosen-ones, but those days have passed since Hermetism evolves and changes, adopting the currents of its time. This characteristic will always keep this tradition alive.

Ancient Divination

Introduction

As Cicero writes among all wise nations or among all barbaric nations there is no nation which does not believe in the revelation of the future and does not believe that there are people who have that ability.
In the far ancient times, divination, witchcraft and religion were the same thing. The connection of divination and religion is very clear in ancient Hellas. In this article are going to read some examples from ancient texts.

Division of Divination

Divination in her first steps was connected with the Divine. There is no divination without the true connection to the Gods and the unseen powers of the nature. Through their signs (oionoi) the will of the Gods is revealed. The method of catching and explaining these signs is divination.

Magickal Divination

The first forms of divination concluded with invocations, evocations, magical rituals and the explaining the signs. As years were passing by, those steps became complicated and only a few priests could perform them. The techniques of divination became more and with great details. Knowledge of those techniques and practice are necessary.

Means of Apocalypse

Ancient divination is based in signs. Those signs could be divided to two categories. Signs that are revealed without the diviner do any great actions and signs that are caused because the diviner did something.

Theurgy and Philosophy are two different methods which lead to the union with God.
