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.
Primary Instructor: J. Lee Lehman
This is not a beginner level course. You will need a background in natal astrology
This course can be used as an elective for the diploma.
You may have used natal astrology to tell that you are likely to move this year - but is the house you just looked at a good match? Your client's chart may show relationship issues, but is the guy she just met last weekend a prince or a frog? And what if your cousin's birth time is uncertain - he still has questions!
Instructor: J. Lee Lehman, PhD
Independent study. Students have 4 months to complete the assignments.
This short course can be taken anytime as an independent class and as a prelude for CS102 Traditional Medical Astrology and CS101 Horary Astrology in depth (this workshop or the equivalent is required for these two courses).
How do you determine which planet is stronger when looking at aspects? How do you quickly find the strongest planets in the chart? Or which planets may pose more challenges even if they aren't aspected or mainly have trines? Classical astrologers used essential dignities and debilities.These were their building blocks for interpretation.
If you have found yourself increasingly interested in Hellenistic techniques, join this webinar! Hank Friedman, writing for the Mountain Astrologer, has called Delphic Oracle "the gold standard of Traditional Astrology programs, far and away more powerful and better designed than any other software."
After a brief introduction on the features of Delphic Oracle, this webinar will cover the use of this program in assessing planetary condition, and what Schmidt calls the “universal hermetic techniques”. Curtis Manwaring demonstrates the power of this software and the timing capabilities of these techniques by examining the charts of famous people.
Senay Yangel and Gary Gomes will present an introduction to Vedic (Jyotish) Astrology in this special international webinar that will be in both Turkish and English.
Jyotish (Vedic) Astrology was founded in Indian between 5,000 and 6,000 years ago and is an unbroken tradition from then to present day. Jyotish (Vedic) Astrology is used for all dimensions of secular and religious life. Incarnations of the god Vishnu are openly tied to the planets. This webinar will explain the key differences between Jyotish and Western astrology, such as the regular use of the nakshatras (a more detailed system than the Western lunar mansions) and the dashas (which are similar to the Western Fidaria).
9 am - Noon PDT (12 pm - 3 pm EDT)
On August 3, Erin Sullivan presents part 1 of the Elegance of the Solar System: Inner Planets Retrograde. With an exceptional and beautiful and detailed PowerPoint, Erin will teach the movements and the meaning of Mercury and Venus Retrograde. A very unique and immediately useful lecture, with both mechanical technique, and also imagery of the patterns of Mercury in its Rx cycles. Both these planets have quite astounding patterns over time, and they are most useful in transit for times of self-awareness.
9 am - Noon PDT (12 pm - 3 pm EDT)
This is an “enlightenment” seminar! Aha Moments Occur!
Erin will show through PowerPoint technical patterns, and lecture on their interpretive meaning, how Outer Planet Rx will create 3 opportunities in 18 months to undergo a major rebirth. Their patterns are unique and Erin is the first to research, organize and write succinctly on Rx Planets . . . Since Democritus, a 2,500 year loss of information is now, finally, corrected and eloquently made clear!

|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.
PS: The way you host, makes all feel more comfortable, your sincerity and hospitality is lacking guise, which is doubly appreciated. Thanks so much, please know your efforts are well received for many, who find a way to your school via the Internet and Cosmic consciousness — a spiritual and silent guidance towards a collective and common higher frequencies — for Astrologers to be a part of, rather than to be separate from.
Kepler offers an ever-changing selection of short workshops for professionals and individuals interested in different aspects of astrological philosophy and practice.
