|Four Levels model for Astrogem Geomancy|
He explained that this is based on a 3000 year old practice of divining from natural elements. A bit like the I-Ching, you create a shape through four yes/no or odd/even throws. So, it's possible to create geomes (the equivalent to the I-Ching hexagram) using anything that has two sides or ends: a business card, a coin, a smooth stone, a twig, whatever!
Les Cross has also developed his own system, which associates gems and astrological notions to each geome. And he has published some lovely cards which can be used for this system, with images on one side and explanations on the other. Being a sucker for cards, I got a set :)

In terms of the four different levels of the geome, his intuitive method equates the top two with mental/spiritual elements and the bottom two with physical/material elements. The outer levels are associated to the external, while the middle two are internal. So, the second level from the top is about internal mental aspects: our own thoughts and beliefs.
As for how to read with this system, the basic idea is to see the flow that is currently taking place. A base reading would draw two geomes to see where you are and where you are headed.
cards, and got Via and Laetitia. Currently, then, this project is full of potential, but with nothing actually happening (a fairly accurate description). Moving it forward, I need to activate my own thought processes, planning and strategy (level two), to bring to bear my own resources at a material level (level three), and to also expand my outreach to others at a practical level (fourth layer). What I don't need is to be worrying about what others think of this project (top level), I just need to trust and get on with it. Makes sense to me!
And no, I didn't forget the giveaway. The Numerology Cards will wing their way across to:
