An Astro-Lithomancy Experiment

A few years ago, after studying and practicing the techniques of astro-geomancy, I turned my attention to lithomancy – divination with stones – with the same objective: to integrate elements of lithomancy and astrology in a single system. Lithomancy normally uses a prepared surface (often a cloth) upon which one casts the stones or found objects, with the result that some of the items land in certain sensitive parts of the field, and often in proximity or juxtaposition to one another in ways that create meaning. I decided to develop a unique horoscope template for this purpose (square after the traditional manner) and use special tokens rather than stones or sortilege to represent the planets. The attached paper provides the results of my experiments.
