Upcoming Courses

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.

What is the difference between a course and a workshop? 

  • The structure. 
    • Both Workshops and Courses have live meetings that are recorded. A copy of the recording is sent to everyone who has signed up. BUT this is all that workshops offer.
    • Courses also have an online course site where students will have additional resources in-between the live meetings. These resources can include
      • written articles,
      • presentations,
      • links to useful websites and articles on the Internet,
      • additional audio and video resources,
      • written discussion forums,
      • quizzes to test your understanding
      • and more.
    • Courses give you a chance to practice what you have learned between the live sessions with the other students in the course.
    • Courses let you receive direct feedback from the instructor over the length of the course in both oral and written form.

  • The basic approach. 
    • Courses are designed with a focus on student learning. The instructors are not there just to tell you some information. Instead they want to help you take the next steps and incorporate what you have learned as part of your own toolkit.
    • Courses present more than one point of view. You will often have more than one instructor so you can see different perspectives and methods in action.
      • Even if you only have a single instructor, you will still be shown alternatives, controversies, and background so that you can make an informed choice.
    • Courses are designed to help you build your skills in evaluating new information. After a course is over,
      • We want you to be able to evaluate new information from books, articles, websites and other astrologers
      • We want you to have the background you need to decide what type of astrology you are going to practice
      • We want you to have the skills you need to spot where a new or old technique has limitations and what that may mean in practice.

Every term includes both electives (some of which may only be offered once per year) and regularly scheduled Certificate courses. Live meetings will be recorded and students will receive a copy of the recording as part of their tuition.

In addition to the lecture, these intensive courses have:

  • Accsess to a student resource center
  • Access to online library materials
  • Links every week to written articles, videos and/or presentations to deepen your understanding
  • Links to additional optional materials that aren't required for the course, but are wonderful supplements to it
  • Discussion forums where students work with the material for the week answering a question and responding to each other's answers
  • Some courses have quizzes that immediately allow you to check your own understanding
  • Some courses have additional written assignments that are uploaded for direct instructor feedback
  • Access to the course site for an additional 3 months after the course is complete 

Students in the initial Fundamental series also have an optional "lab" - a one hour online session devoted to interpreting charts. 

Learn how astrology can help understand health and medical issues.

Instructor: Judith Holloway, Masters in Public Health
Date and Time: Intensive 5 week workshop begins June 19, 2017
Mondays from 5:30 - 7:30 pm Pacific Time

This course is a perfect way to introduce yourself to the practical application of astrological knowledge to health issues. It is designed for astrologers who want to gain a basic understanding of techniques that can be used. Students will see how these methods were put to use in ancient, medieval, and today.

You will need to have a basic knowledge of planets, signs, houses and aspects to be able to participate.

This course is useful for beginning to define a personal health profile that can help you with assessing potential health related problem areas for yourself and your clients.
