Kepler is highlighting astrological research throughout the month of September. Amy Shapiro has published the results of her research on careers and astrology in her new book Forces At Work. This book is for students and practitioners who want to look at parallels between Astrology and Career Development. Based on an original Career Survey conducted between 1990-92, and a follow-up in 2012-13, cases show the arcs of people’s careers and subtle forces that guided their choices, correlated to their charts. The findings are a long-term study of cosmic and psycho-dynamic links between Astrology and Career Theory with over 80 natal chart observations. Chapter 2, Geocosmic Career Indicators, surveys ancient-to-modern Astro-Career Theories with insights by Austrian Astrologer, Dr. Oskar Adler, a fresh look at the Gauquelin Sectors, Part of Fortune, Asteroids, Chiron, Ceres and Eris, with cases of famous people’s charts with a prominent Eris: Sigmund Freud, Arnold Schoenberg, Joan Baez, Princess Diana, Steve Jobs and John Stewart. In each, Eris serves the role of ‘Provocateur’ as a catalyst for evolutionary forces. In a special Resources section, Kepler College is recognized as a resource for Astrologers. Chapters 3 to 6 group 58 cases by their Sun/Moon/Horizon relation, and a chapter on Career Counseling gives practical advice to help your clients with career decisions.
In the Foreword, Economist, Ed Kaznocha writes: “Aptitude tests and counseling help us to gain insight, yet do not touch on our inner, hard-to-express wants and needs. As Amy describes: ‘Forces at Work combines self-perception, motivation, astrology and career theory in the interplay of visible and invisible realms.’ Her research and this book achieve what no economic or statistical study can do.”

The center of our solar system is the Sun, the Giver of Life, and light to the whole system. It is the principal influence throughout the whole system of astrology and is the representative of Self. The Sun is the giver of the life principle, or the breath of life, and when manifesting in the physical world the Sun represents the specialized life or Prana in each separate individual.

The last unsolved riddle in The Sibylline Oracles suggests there is an arcane name for the Heavenly Father of Jesus-the-Christ. The numerical value total for the letters of the Heavenly Father’s name conceals two occult features which, when elucidated, reveal the Heavenly Father to be the source of light in its physical and metaphysical aspects.
The proposed solution to the last unsolved riddle explains the solar/astronomical context for the riddle and its connection with the magic square of the sun, from which are generated significant numerical triplicities such as 666 in The Book of Revelation 13:18 in the New English Bible, 888 in Book One of The Sibylline Oracles, and 999 mentioned in The Kabala of Numbers.
A new study by Professor McMahon at Vanderbilt University has found links between the season of birth and personality. Some astrologers are hailing this study, claiming it proves astrology. But before getting too excited, we should consider what this study, and many others showing a seasonal biological effect, are measuring and what the implications might be for astrology.
