Today is Earth Day and we celebrate – and hopefully contribute to – ways of keeping the Earth in mind in all aspects of bio-diversity, sustainability and conservation. This is the home of our species and one of the roots of Astrogem. Even if you are not a conservationist or work in environmental sustainability, today could be a time to reflect on your place in the biosphere and your connection to all its constituent parts. A time when you can think about the interdependence and interconnectedness of our lives here.
As Geomancy is the Oracle of the Earth I though the day should not pass without reference to the wider picture – literally. For me, the Oracle is the voice of that interconnectedness. It is a way to connect with everything and everyone on Earth.
This last weekend I was invited to give a lecture on Astrogem Geomancy to a conference at Hitchin Priory and what a fantastic experience that was! It was a great opportunity to spread the word and boy-oh-boy did the delegates hear it!
The delegates understood the model very quickly and in less than an hour we’d covered the history of Geomancy, how the system came into being, why they need to know about it and how it all worked.
They liked the quality of the readings they were giving each other and the practise sessions gave them a lot to talk about!
For me one of the best moments came at tea-break when delegates were heard giving each other impromptu readings based on whether water drinking glasses were arranged up or down (open or closed), thereby creating a geome.
I mentioned to one of the organisers that I was starting to see geomes everywhere. He said that it was a sure sign of going nutty – until he, too, started to see them next day!
I had been putting the finishing touches to my lecture the night before and I chanced to looked up to the other side of the room and saw Conjunctio staring at me.
Astrogemers will clearly see the symbol – showing the new audience waiting for the new ideas. Conjunctio shows the desire to connect the audience’s external mental world with their physical external world.
And what should be on the opposite wall, right above my head. . . ?
Albus and Conjunctio are the twin aspects of Mercury associated with change, ideas and wisdom. Albus clearly showed me that the way to connect with the audience’s mental approach and their physical needs was to give them (Level 2) my ideas on the Four Levels model!
Am I just seeing things?
Several other delegates have now reported back saying they are also starting to see geomes all over the place. They are definitely readers in the making!
Thanks to all those who attended and who are now adding the wonderful world of geomantic readings to their work on Earth Day.
