Between all the writing for the 49 Days of Definitions project I’ve got going on, I’ve also been able to finish up a new ebook for publication on my blog. It’s up for sale on the Services page, but you can find the PayPal button below as well. As before, this new ebook is is US$10 through PayPal. (And just in time for the winter celebrations where everyone suddenly gets money and gifts!)
This new book is the “Lectura Geomantiae”, my translation of a 15th century work on astrological geomancy, applying the geomantic figures in the 12 houses of an astrological house chart. It’s a fascinating look of geomancy as practiced by more common people than, say, Robert Fludd or Cornelius Agrippa, and it contains interesting bits of advice and some new quirks that haven’t been observed before. I translated the text once before from Latin to English, but I went through it again and re-translated it to my satisfaction, as well as including a number of appendices and corrections that can help geomancers understand the text better. The Lectura Geomantiae is a useful and easy-to-use resource for geomancers who are interested in the astrological side of geomancy. It’s never been translated into English before I did, as far as I can tell; John Michael Greer plans to include it in his forthcoming “Geomancer’s Sourcebook”, but that project has been on hold for a long while. Clearly, you should buy this now instead.
Also, if divination’s your thing, don’t forget that I also wrote an ebook on grammatomancy, a method of divination using Greek letters not unlike runes, which also incorporates astrological, qabbalistic, and numerological influences to form a complete and coherent system of occult knowledge. That’s also available up on the Services page, too!
Also, I’ve noticed that I’m starting to get some more email about questions, either about general occult issues or about specific things on commissions and services. To make things easy, please use the new Contact page to send me an email straight through the blog.
