June 3rd: Geomancy Readings with Dean Smith
Dean Smith will be leading free geomancy readings from 2-5 PM
Walk-ins are accepted.
Geomancy is a method of divination that interprets markings on the ground or on a geomantic shield or house chart by the patterns formed by tossed handfuls of soil, rocks, sand, dice, or other methods. The most prevalent form of divinatory geomancy involves interpreting a series of 16 geomantic figures formed by a randomized process that involves recursion, followed by analyzing them, often augmented with astrological and or elemental interpretations.
