Austin Coppock | Assessing Omens, Divine Kingship, The Picatrix, & Astrological Magic

Show Notes

Join The Higherside Chats podcast as host, Greg Carlwood talks Assessing Omens, Divine Kingship, The Picatrix, & Astrological Magic with returning guest, Austin Coppock.
With the patterns pointing to a higher order and synchronistic sequences becoming harder to ignore, it seems only sensible we looks to the stars. Historically the embodiment of the heavens on Earth, astrology has guided generations of elites through tumultuous times and been held in high regard for centuries.
While understanding this complicated technology is no easy task, with the help of today’s astrologer extraordinaire, perhaps we can peel back the curtain and take a peek.
Finishing off the trifecta of magical guests in all their glory, Austin returns to The Higherside to give his thoughts on 2017, the cycles we find ourselves in and what 2018’s skies have in store for us.
[3:00] Beginning at the end, Greg and Austin kick things off by discussing 2017, the year of the Fire Cock. Austin explains how after considering the events and tone of last year in conjunction with the sky’s forecast, he’s concluded the theme of 2017 was “a year with a lot of smoke and very little fire.” They also discuss the Great American Eclipse, the immediate assault of flood and fire that reigned on the US, the Charlottesville marchers and Bannon’s departure from the White House and Trump’s inner circle.
[13:00] Continuing with their discussion of the Great American Eclipse, Greg and Austin talk about previous cycles, where leaders find themselves in the cross-hairs and how they have coincided with both Clinton’s impeachment and the attempted assassination of Reagan. With the cascade of meteoric falls from leaders in high positions from Harvey Weinstein and half of Hollywood, to unprecedented turnover in White House staff, Austin explains how these correlate to the post-eclipse six month cycle we are in. Coppock also discusses omens, ancient Mesopotamian magic, symbolic substitution, the age old practice of the dummy king sacrifice, and the skeptics path to belief.
[21:00] Austin discusses the model for divine kingship, the noble origins of astrology in the king’s court, and the prohibition of it’s practice by commoners and peasants. Following this thread of elite use and control of astrology, from Hitler’s embargo and subsequent crackdown of unsanctioned practitioners, to England’s outlawing the calculation of birth charts during the days of John Dee and Queen Elizabeth, Austin breaks downs instances of suppression throughout history. A mechanism for mediating heaven and Earth, Greg and Austin examine the protective and proactive aspects of astrology, the astrological bible “The Picatrix”, and it’s Mesopotamian roots.
[31:00] With Haran’s heretic tax, Bloomberg’s temple to Mithras, and Super Bowl halftime shows steeped in Babylonian symbolism, Greg and Austin discuss the value of ancient Mesopotamian magic, it’s lineage from divine kingship, and influence on Egyptian magic. Austin describes the importance in the miniaturization and individualization of astrology, which was originally a royal power. Coppock goes onto explain how this reclamation of power relates to the Picatrix grimoire, it’s powerful imagery and how it’s been hijacked throughout history.
[42:00] Greg and Austin discuss the 200 year cycle of the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction, the historical context, and consistent patterns associated with it. In examining precedence of previous air cycles, Coppock has uncovered historical highlights that include noteworthy events during reign of Genghis Khan, the decline of the Western Roman Empire, and Alexander’s dismantling of the Persian Empire. Austin and Greg examine the favorability during these times to disruptive conquerors and whether the Internet fills this roll during the current cycle.

Yeeeeeee!!! Fire Cock!!!


Right on! An awesome series of shows. So grateful as always. Can’t wait to hear Shamangineer next. Take care all and enjoy riding the magical waves. ????????????????


Another amazing show! Dear Greg, you are by far my favorite host among many in the conspiracy world – thank you for being so articulate, knowledgeable and calm (vs agressive). Thank you


True-spirocy would be more accurate


Not just conspiracy, but all things fringe. Conspiracy technically involves illegal activity or an attempt, showing intent. I hate that label of a conspiracy theorist. Conspiracy theorist = government critic.


Love the astrological shows. Thank you!

I wonder if there ever be a multi-guest show on this topic. Imagine White, Coppock, Joseph, etc conversing, that’d be really something.

Interesting note: the seventh (7th) planet from the sun is Uranus. The orbital period of Uranus is 84 years, and 84 divided by the 12 years per astrological sign is exactly 7.


I meant
84 years / 12 signs = 7 years

Got too excited and miss wrote. 🙂


OMG.. He hit on so many points that have been spreading around for the last 2 years.. China is about to make a transition internally because people are protesting their ban on crypto… The US financial markets are obviously not built to last and will fall when the wind blows by.. I think the sweeping conqueror will be Crypto.. they will conquer all financial assets but won’t last very long after the death of the financial system, but they will open trade routes to the 4 billion people who are unbanked.. also, Russia and China are rebuilding the silk road.. that’s a HUGE trade route.. it could also be seen as Trump is conquering the current regime of global-ists, and he skated by injury from the eclipse, which proves that the president is not in control.. it could have been Rockefeller who died that was the leader who was punished… sooooo many unbelievable connections to my theories.. I am an Aquarius, and I’ve been urged beyond my ability to resist, to learn to protect myself physically and store resources for the winter that’s coming, as well as learn about my finances and increase my wealth and diversify my portfolio.. unbelievable show.. I’m going to listen at least 3 times to try and get details.. great, great show

Great episode.
The more I learn about astrology, the more events in my life seem to make a lot more sense in retrospect.

The part about Saturn in Capricorn being linked to imprisonment makes me wonder if there are any ties to Chronos being imprisoned in Tartarus?

I really wanted to enjoy this
Austin makes astrology as interesting and accurate as the average economist.


I’m not gonna be a douche about it, but this didn’t do it for me at all. I am really stoked for ShamaEngineer though! All the other shows this month were on point too. THC is definitely the place to be! Thanks Greg


Great show! Always love when I can astro- nerd out to an Austin Coppock episode.

One side note about the “substitution of the dummy king” that Austin was mentioning around the 15:00 mark:
Kevin Spacey was one of the “nobility” that fell from grace during the post-eclipse season. I feel that it is no coincidence that he played the POTUS in a hit TV series, and I’m worried that he was offered up as an energetic scapegoat of sorts, in lieu of Trump, as part of this Dummy king exchange.
What are your thoughts on this??


I’ve been busy since the end of 2017, logged in here for the first time since then. Imagine my delight to find episodes from Austin, Gordon, Chris Knowles and m*therfucking Crrow. Carlwood, keep up the slam dunks.


Hmmm. Iv mentioned this before in the plus forum, but unless I’m retarded, Chris never mentions trump was born on a lunar eclipse. This show or the last. He talks about his horizons and where’s mercury, but falls short on the moon. Trump was born June 14 1946 at 10:54 AM. The lunar eclipse started about 10:33 AM. Kinda a massive piece of info I never heard mentioned by our astrologer guests. Hmmm


I was waiting to hear the significance of Trump giving his first official State of the Union Address within a few hours of a Blue Super Moon Eclipse. I was disappointed Austin didn’t mention it.

It’s like Nancy Reagan’s astrologer picked the date. What was sort of magic he was working?


Yeah, I watched the state of the Union, and a few hours later got up to watch the super blood moon. Which also hasn’t happened in like 150 years, last time being when Andrew Jackson was president. You can’t tell me there’s not something to it


Blue super moon**


he lost me at aquarius is really an air sign lol


An astrology show posted during my solar return, I am impressed and appreciative. Personally I think Greg has some of the better insights to offer (I’m at the 46 minute mark) on potential manifestations and interpretations. To me this is natural being that he’s an Aries and Uranus the planet of genius, sudden insight etc is currently still in Aries. I have been following the planetary cycles for 30 odd years especially Uranus. Go Greg, you are by far my favorite Aries native to shine during this Uranus cycle.


Hello there, I’m the guy who was trolling Gordon White in the previous show’s comments. 😛

Based on listening to this Austin Coppock show and in agreement with ferajade’s comments above, I should give props to Greg, whose questions are excellent. I hadn’t really coalesced the thought, but with the ramblings of Gordon in the previous show, two of Greg’s questions had more succinct summations of magic than anything Gordon said in a couple of hours.

Woooooo Greg!


It’s time to have Robert Phoenix back on. Austin is good, but I resonate better with Robert. It’s been almost four years. Too long.


Your birthday is a day after mine so looks like we’re both in for a shitty one. Cheers!


Learned a couple of things which sound like they will be useful. However, I feel like I’m becoming your friendly neighbourhood skeptic! I have to query how you can use false flags ie engineered events to support astrology? I think it would open up a whole other can of worms to discuss this which might change the relevance of the whole subject! Thanks for your great way of interviewing and the clarity it brings x


Well that was interesting. I get a lot of information in images and feelings. So the images information was wonderful confirmation.
Thank you.


this was a shit episode, string of good episodes? i swear i’ve only listened to the crow epi in like the last month feels like longer to be honest, where did hollow earth go? or even just aliens.. im sick of political crap, astrology mumbo jumcrap and all the other bullshit


Wow! Amazing episode! Thank you! The regular people have their own John Dee! 🙂
