Alchemy, geomancy and spiritualism have dwelt and dwell under its shadow.
Herbalism, alchemy, geomancy, and other magic arts owe their origin to this fountain-head of primitive superstition.
But Speght is correct in the main point, viz., that Puella and Rubeus are 'the names of two figures in geomancy.'
geomancy is a kind of foretelling things, by means of little dots first made on the ground and then on paper.
Pertaining to geomancy, the art of divining future events by means of signs connected with the earth.
"art of divination by means of signs derived from the earth," late 14c., from Old French géomancie, from Medieval Latin geomantia, from late Greek *geomanteia, from geo-, comb. form of ge "earth" + manteia "divination" (see -mancy).
