Kepler instructor Gary Gomes recently took a trip to Turkey to visit another Kepler instructor, Senay Yangel I recently returned from my first trip to Turkey (February 10-22, 2016). I had such a terrific time I really did not want to return. I was the guest of my student and fellow Kepler Professor Dr. Senay Devi Yangel. The trip was organized by her and although I was only there for about 10 days, I felt completely at home there. I left on February 10, the first day of Lent at 10:55 in the evening on Turkish Air. There was actually…
Over the last generation it’s become fashionable for astrologers to add a spiritual or “evolutionary” dimension to their work, noting past karma and the direction of a soul’s progress through lifetimes.

The Twelve Letter Alphabet, sometimes called the twelve “Archetypes,” underlies much of the presentation of planets, signs, and houses in modern Western astrology.

Summary: With Uranus transiting Aries for the first time since 1927-1934, cookbook astrology would predict a New Birth of astrology's relevance around the world by 2019. As with so many beloved astrological catch-phrases, “New Birth” is vague, generally applicable and perhaps ultimately meaningless in any informative sense. Astrologers historically have enjoyed highlighting significant technological revolutions accompanying Uranus transits: Uranus’ archetype is considered synchronous not just with inventions and technology but with astrology itself.
Since coming into the study of astrology, I have deeply pondered the mechanism behind its magical and profound workings.  Any student of the subject has surely been amazed by its exactitude and precision in the timing of events, bodily illness, and passing moods that sweep through us in any given day. It is the unending and uncanny accuracy of astrology that keeps me motivated to continue my study. I also believe that astrology can be used to aid in healing. For instance, medical astrology can often be as accurate as a laboratory test, yet looking at the astrological chart is…
