their attributed zodiacal sign. So. 132 . These are otherwise known as the North and South Nodes of the Moon. geomancy. Doing this will establish a clearer view of geomancy and its method. simply because geomancy and the houses are closely related. all in all. we will introduce you to geomancy with this lesson. It is not necessary to memorize all of the explanations that fall under each of the houses. Others seem to think that it may have originated in Africa or in some areas of the Middle East. These rulers will be used in accordance with the actual method of divination. or some place in the Far East. These are the main correspondences that must be committed to memory for an effective geomantic divination. This is a tragedy simply because geomancy is such a precise form of divination. However. far outweighs most other methods. Furthermore. The fact of the matter is. the necessary materials to be familiar with include the memorization of the geomantic figures. In this lesson we are going to give you the particular geomantic figure as it pertains to falling in a particular house. One of the problems that we often run into is the fact that those who are studying the esoteric traditions and Mysteries often skip over or underestimate the use of geomancy.Geomancy is probably the oldest form of divination known to man. their meanings. however. It is very important that the houses and their meanings be memorized for effective use of the operation. the elaborate information is here for any future reference. Some historians believe that geomancy began in ancient China. Under the heading of each figure is stated the general effect of the figure regardless of the house. it is important that you familiarize yourself with some of the main headings. In the Practicus grade you will learn how to determine which house or sign a geomantic figure would fall under. and the ruler of the planet. however. which then relate to the sixteen figures of geomancy. Of these there can only be obtained sixteen possible combinations. We can equate the genii to each particular sign and planet. Such a procedure calls for thorough knowledge of what each house signifies. Therefore. Geomancy is basically the various groupings of odd and even points that come together in four lines. Overall. as far as a divinatory process. In any case. certain ruling genii are also attributed. Two figures are attributed to each of the seven ancient planets. in this grade you'll need to memorize the rulers of the planets. the element of the figure. you will use the knowledge of the points already stated above. In addition to each particular planet and sign. The remaining figures are attributed to Cauda and Caput Draconis. that it is an extremely accurate way for divining any particular answer. As for the memorization requirements of this grade. the method of its use will be omitted until the next grade. It really doesn't matter where geomancy began. In the Theoricus grade. we take these combinations of odd and even points and arrange them on four lines. the tail and head of the Dragon respectively. Here is the table of the geomantic figures as they pertain to the twelve houses.
