Choosing a New Experience of Yourselfregister blue

DATE: Sept 23, 2017
TIME: 1:00 - 2:30 PM PDT / 4:00 - 5:30 PM EDT

Each planet represents a facet of our psyche. What if we choose one facet as a focalizing crystal through which to experience ourselves? What better way to exercise an atrophied or less developed part of ourselves, than choosing it first? Technically, we move a planet to the Ascendant, representing our intention to choose this part of us as a lens/instinctive way of approaching ourselves and life.

What do you do when everything goes wrong in your life? You have been accused of corruption, your assets are seized, you've been kicked out of your home and exiled.

DATE: Saturday Oct 7, 2017
TIME: 1:00-2:30 pm PDT / 4:00-5:30 pm EDT

If you are Dante Alighieri, you start writing a poem about visiting hell. And if you live in the middle ages, you use the symbolism of two powerful spiritual forces - the church and the astrological planets. And perhaps you get a few digs in at astrologers who are supposed to able to tell when your life is going to be a mess!

The Divine Comedy is Dante's full-fledged spiritual cosmology loaded with astrological symbolism. In Canto Twenty of Dante’s Inferno, astrologers – and diviners and magicians – are in Hell forever with their heads twisted backwards, walking around a large circle.

So what was Dante's problem?

Have you ever wondered why children in the same family can be so different from each other?   Is there a sibling in your family you felt comfortable with but another who set your teeth on edge?  The answer to that question is temperament.

All of us are aware that in life there are numerous cycles such as the cycle of birth and death, work cycle, pregnancy cycle, growth cycle, and more...

DATE: Saturday, Sep 30, 2017  
TIME: 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM PDT

This is the a part of the rhythm of the Universe that all of us participate in.  We can choose to work consciously with this rhythm – hopefully lessoning the trauma we encounter; or we can choose to remain unconscious – swimming upstream of this rhythm, causing ourselves to remain stuck in yet another cycle of ‘perpetual trauma and numbness’. The choice is ours. So, you say “What does this have to do with the Moon’s Nodes?”

Astrologers dream about starting their own astrological consulting business. 

DATES: Saturdays: Sept 2, Sept 16 and Sept 30
TIME: 10:00-12:00 AM PDT

It seems like a great career path to be your own boss: Build your astrological skills, hang a shingle, do awesome stuff, bring in clients, and make money. Unfortunately, that dream takes a lot of hard work and requires a number of skills beyond the astrology. These 5 workshops presented by Robin Langford will help you on your way! Sign up for just 1 or all 5 workshops.

Electing the time for a wedding, meditations on the planets, new moon wishes, and wearing a birthstone are all connected to a time when astrology and magic were insepratable. Dr. Al Cummins opens up the world of astrological magic with this three-part series on its fundamentals. Each workshop focuses on a different aspect of astrological magic, from sigils to services to spirits. 

Two-hour workshops on 3 consecutive Saturdays. Please note that the dates have changed.
DATES: Nov 18, 25 and Dec 2, 2017
TIME: 10 AM to 12 PM Pacific Time (1-3 PM Eastern Time).

Each workshop is designed to stand alone, so you can attend them all, or just your favourites, and in any sequence you like. That said, each mutually supports the understanding and utility of the others. If you cannot attend, you will still get a recording.

Dante’s Divine Comedy still has much to teach us about astrology and the human soul.

DATE: Two Saturdays Oct 21 & 28, 2017
TIME: 1:00-2:30 pm PDT / 4:00-5:30 pm EDT

Sometimes the best way to understand the present is to dive into the past.

Eight hundred years ago, the exiled poet Dante Alighieri pondered the nature of personal, cultural and institutional evil and our chances of doing better. His Divine Comedy traces a spiritual journey and cosmology that will be familiar modern astrologers.

Are planets better behaved in some signs than others? In an opposition, what planet is most likely to win the tug of war? Are mutual receptions always nice? The key to answer these questions and many more is understanding dignities and debilities.

Sundays, beginning Oct 22 from 9:00-11:00 pm PST
(Special pricing on many of our 5 weeks course this term! 13% off the regular price)

The traditional astrology tool of dignity and debility is a powerful and nuanced way to add detail to your chart interpretation. But many astrologers do not realize how effective and useful this tool can be or they think it is simply archaic and overly complicated. Nothing could be further from the truth!

The goal of this class is to show how you can reclaim this effective tool.

When All Else Fails: Using Indian Astrological Principles to Elect the Best Times

Instructor: Kenneth D. Miller M.A., Jyotish Kovid

Begins the week of Oct 23. Live meetings start on Tuesday, Oct 24 from 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm Pacific Time.

Did you know that in India they have a five-fold qualitative division of time that differs significantly from our Western time concepts? In this class you will learn several different components from the Indian concept of time, which differ from Western options and are able to provide an auspicious time for events, often when there are no such times in the Western system. If you are a Western astrologer you will learn how to easily integrate these considerations in your practice without having to learn Indian astrology!

The ancient world saw soul as body and mind, as breath and life force, as our basic nature that outlives the body, and as the self that reveals itself to others. Here are the beginning investigations of why we say someone is a "good soul" and how the cracks and breaks in soul express in "character flaws." These ideas also form the bedrock of what we consider "the Good Life” and how a soul can act in harmony with itself and the world. 

Many astrologers have heard the term Uranian Astrology, but do you know how useful it can be?

5-weeks beginning Nov 4

Instructor: Bruce Scofield, PhD
Independent Study - take any time
Students will have 6 months to complete this in-depth course.

There are four major, world-class astrological traditions: The Western astrological tradition that grew out of the Near East, Mediterranean and Arab cultures; Indian astrology (Jyotish) that was strongly influenced by Greek astrology around 300 B.C.; Chinese astrology, an ancient indigenous astrology utilizing interlocking cycles of 12 and 10; and Mesoamerican astrology, whose origins go back to at least 500 B.C.

Taught by Bruce Scofield

Astronomy and astrology have the same origins in the explorations and explanations of the visual sky. Astronomy is the study of the nature, motions and history of the Earth's cosmic environment, astrology is the study of how the cosmic environment affects Earth and its inhabitants. In this course, specifically designed for Kepler College students, we will emphasize themes relevant to a general understanding of the subject rather than one involving technical knowledge and mathematics.


Here you will find a list of courses for the next term of the Kepler Certificate Program as well as courses over several weeks that include an online course site.

Kepler offers regular webinars on an assortment of topics from a wide variety of presenters. Recordings of the webinars are sent to participants and can be downloaded for free up to 14 days after the webinar. If you enjoy these webinars, we ask that you pay a small amount of your choosing.

Thanks for all you do. It matters a great deal to many who are able to appreciate the greatness of Kepler's concern and aptitude in Metaphysics, to help share and expand Astrology. Your help enables — heals — transforms, as each webinar builds upon the previous. I have only awe and appreciation for this generosity.
