registerPractical guidance for astrologers working with their own and clients’ family issues: parents, children, siblings, or extended relations.

DATE: Begins July 9, 2019 (5 weeks)
WEEKLY MEETING TIME: 5:00 - 7:00 PM PDT

Family relationships form much of the background complexity of a person’s life: they set patterns that manifest in relationships with bosses and subordinates, close friends and intimates, and in our career and life-style choices. We will also go beyond the so-called “nuclear family” and consider social, ethnic, and historical contexts of family life.

We’ll sample psychodynamic approaches that inform much modern astrology and include systems approaches that allow us to explore interlocking patterns of our birth and family connections. How have astrologers in the past and present discussed family issues in an individual chart? 

registerThis course is for students who

  • Already know some astrology and have worked with the planets, signs and houses, but want to anchor your understanding, or
  • Want to enter into W102 Fundamentals II, but have not taken W101 or passed the W101 test.

Instructor: Enid Newberg
BEGINS: July 20, 2019
TIME: 3:00-5:00 PM PDT / 6:00-800 PM EDT

Students will ground their understanding of the fundamental components of the chart. The focus is mostly on synthesizing the core basics into a layered interpretation.

Topics covered include:

  • Identifying planetary functions
  • Interpretation of planets in signs through polarity, element & mode
  • The Astrological houses
  • Separating the meanings of planets, signs and houses
  • Working with the major aspects
  • Working with the major dignities and debilities 

Discover the evolutionary spiritual power of Sedna, the new esoteric outer limit of our solar system.

registerDATE: June 1, 2019
TIME: 1:00 - 2:30 pm PDT (4:00-5:30 PM EDT)

Learn of the profound implications for society and for each of us individually in the coming years, as Sedna approaches her closest point to Earth.

When a new Solar System body is discovered, clues to the astrological meaning comes primarily from studying the planet in a large number of charts to find common themes. New Zealand astrologer Alan Clay draws on two years of research using hundreds of charts, to do this for Sedna.

In Mesoamerican astrology, multiple units of time become signs. Learn how to work with this fascinating and unique tradition!

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.

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.

registerChart calculation can seem pretty daunting. This course helps make it easier.

There is a trade-off in having the benefit of computers to calculate an astrological chart. Chart Calculation gives students a deeper understanding of how the chart relates to the movements of the earth and sky, which aids chart interpretation.

The first portion of this course covers the process of calculating a natal chart. Students will learn to calculate charts from time zones around the world, as well as in both the Northern and Southern hemispheres. The second portion of the course adds additional calculation techniques, including the lots, adjusted calculation date, progressions, directions and solar returns.

Fall term each year will have live sessions. For Winter, Spring and Summer it is organized for independent self-study and each student can request an hour of dedicated tutoring.

purchaseThis course considers a range of astrological techniques and methods that share a common principle – symmetry. Uranian Astrology and the use of midpoints are obvious examples. But there are many other common techniques such as the distribution of elements and qualities, traditional rulerships and anticia that also use symmetrical principles.
