From the rich soils of the Earth grow potent plant allies. Reaching up with verdant fingers to meet the shining Sun and reflecting Moon alike, we may read the virtues and vices of the Sixteen Figures of geomancy upon their petalled palms. With care, attention, and respect we may come to understand both Flora and Figure. Indeed, each may bring us new insights and into more intimate relationship with the other: geomantic figures speaking up on behalf of their botanical bosom companions rooted in their grounds, and the actions and effects of seed, leaf, flower and fruit instantiating the geomantic virtues of their patron figures.
Much of the materia magica with which we might work geomantic magic comes simply from the zodiacal lists corresponded to the geomantic figures. However, in this course diviner and consultant sorcerer Dr Alexander Cummins will share insights into the identities, potencies, and utilities of forty-eight botanicals which his professional and personal practice with the oracle, history, and spirits of geomancy have established as especially expressing the powers of the Sixteen Figures. Mixing elemental, planetary and even zodiacal astrological botany and a variety of grimoiric and folk magical applications with expressly geomantic ingredients and sympathies, this course offers express tutelage on how one might operatively ensorcell with the green-craft of the Sixteen Figures.
More than a geomantic herbal in four parts, this course will present a variety of approaches to actually working leaf, root, and blossom in a geomantic fashion, offering more options for remediating difficulties and securing blessings indicated by geomantic divination.
The course is taught by Dr. Alexander Cummins, who by day is a professional diviner and mild-mannered historian of early modern magic (seriously, he has a doctorate in the history of English magic) and by night finds himself conjuring shades, demons and the occasional angel. As you may have guessed by this course, he has a particular passion for geomancy. Drawing on his own professional practice and personal experiments with the system over the last decade, the Good Doctor presents this course as a further exploration of the nuances of this worldly oracle. The course will include access to scans of primary source texts of sixteenth- and seventeenth-century geomancy, along with reading notes and further bibliography. All of these resources are of course additional support, as the Good Doctor will cover everything necessary during the course proper.
