On Thursday, April 5th, 2012 Hermetic Hour host Poke Runyon will present a discussion on the ancient divinatory art of Geomancy, which is a little known but very important part of the Hermetic magician's tool kit. We will review the history of the process, comparing it to it's ancient Chinese counterpart the I-Ching, and the Tarot. Geomancy is divination by the figures of Earth, but very much related to astrology. Most of our practical knowledge of the process comes from Agrippa's 16th century treatise, but it is far more ancient, probably dating back to the paleolithic. We will discuss our own unique reconstruction of the most ancient method, involving huckle bones (the earliest dice) and flourite crystals (the Biblical Urim and Thummim). We were recently surprised when one of our members on duty in Iraq informed us that the Yezidis were using something similar. Geomancy also figures in the medieval Grail epic Parsifal. Tune in and find out about Western magick's own very ancient version of "casting the runes."
Sam Block (polyphanes) is a practicing Hermetic magician and diviner, writing for his blog The Digital Ambler as well as having self-published several ebooks on various aspects of magical and divinatory practice. Sam also works with Bones and Stars, a paranormal investigation and spiritual consulting group serving the DelMarVa and broader Mid-Atlantic regions. A software engineer and vulgar person on Twitter by day, Sam works with the Greek gods and Catholic saints among many others by night. He specializes in divination with geomancy and the Greek alphabet oracle, and centers his magical practice on theurgy with the seven planets of classical astrology.
On Thursday evening, the Hermetic Hour, with host Poke Runyon, will present a discussion on magical astrology. We will begin with the prehistoric origin of the Zodiac in the Age of Taurus -- "Bull's Eye Astrology" -- and explain how this began the symbolism of the Zodiacal signs (the 12 Labors of Heracles). We will delve into Alexander's emphasis on Aries, and the establishment of horary astrological doctrine by Ptolemy. We will touch on the Orphic-Hermetic doctrine of the soul's descent and return, the geocentric model still used in Hermetic magick, the Mansions of the Moon, the Decans, and astrology's influence in geomancy, tarot, the Tree of Life, the kabbalah, and alchemy, and the concept of "Elective Astrology." Tune in and get proGnosticated!

During this first program with Richard, he will discuss exactly what Geomancy is and how it may be beneficial in today's world.

Ancient people understood with Earth energies, which is why sacred sites were placed in certain locations worldwide. Israeli author Richard Benishai joins Betsey to discuss his new book, Mission:Mother Earth--Peace Through Geobiology. SHOW TIMES: 8am PT, 9am MT, 10 am CT, 11am ET.
Richard was an unlikely candidate to become a Geobiologist, the reading of earth's frequencies, because he came from an electrical-engineering background and believed fully in the material world. However, his life changed after receiving a hands-on healing for a persistent and severe headache
Mission: Mother Earth is the true account of an unusual collaboration between a group of entities referred to as "The Family" channeled by a man named Geema, and Richard. Under the guidance of the "Family" Richard was given the mission to identify, detect and activiate 18 highly energetic geographic points in Israel, in order to connect them into a major energy artery of the Planet.
