It’s rare I do anything but share words and the occasional graph on this blog, so let’s try something different. I was on the train not too long ago and going through my music library trying to find something to listen to, when I had the idea that “hey, I like this song, it’s not a bad example for this one geomantic figure”. I realized that the similarities in the feelings that song evoked (for me, at least) hit home regarding that particular figure, so I went through the rest of the songs in my library and quite a few that weren’t and compiled a small playlist of songs and music videos. Each song is selected that best represents that geomantic figure to me, which you might find useful in your meditations and explorations of the figure. Besides, it shows off some of the songs I really like generally, and it’s been a while since I shared anything too personal about my tastes in something not explicitly magical.
Feel free to share your own music videos in the comments, and let others know what songs you think best represent the figures!
