Episode 164 of the podcast includes an interview with Austin Coppock about a new book called The Heavenly Art: Essays on Astrological Magic.
The book is a compilation of essays on astrological magic by a number of well-known astrologers and covers historical, philosophical and technical questions on the subject.
The authors of the book include Austin Lee Lehman, Benjamin Dykes, Demetra George, John Michael Greer, Freedom Cole, Jason Miller, Eric Purdue, Al Cummings, Aaron Cheak, Mallorie Vaudoise and Daniel A. Schulke.

Special editions of the book can be found on the publisher’s website:
Heavenly art on the three-hand press
Rather than trying to go through each paper in the book individually, Austin and I decided to have a broader discussion of some of the topics raised in general in the book and the different interfaces between astrology and magic.
In the course of the show we finally discussed the place of magic in the history of astrology, the relevance of elective astrology as perhaps the most magical branch of the tradition, the role of the Sabians of Harran in the medieval transmission of astrology and magic through books like the Picatrix, and much more.
