Term: Geomancy

DEFINITIONs:
1.  A system of divination using the sixteen geomantic figures—patterns of four lines of dots with either one or two dots in each line. In divination, four such patterns are produced by a random process, and then combined with others according to traditional methods to produce a geomantic chart.
3.  A form of divination that began by randomly making marks on the earth with a pointed stick. Today it is more common to use a pencil on paper or replace it by taking a random number of stones in the hand from a group of stones kept for this purpose. The result is a number of symbolic figures placed on a type of astrological chart and interpreted. The Geomantic symbols are often used in other magickal situations.
