For over 50 years (and 40,000 clients!), Robert Glasscock has been a Los Angeles-based astrologer consulting with clients from over 122 countries. For many years he authored over 250,000 words annually in “American Astrology Magazine’s” monthly and Annual Yearbook issues for Publisher Joanne Clancy. His writings for newspaper columns, magazine articles and anthologies have been cited by Liz Greene, among others.
Having begun to build his own clientele, Bob was invited to study with Linda Goodman in the ‘60s. Since she no longer saw clients (intently writing her second book), she referred her clients to Bob. He became an early member of Joan McEvers’ and Marion March’s Aquarius Workshops, lecturing there as well as national conferences and conventions. He’s been invited to address a variety of forums from the Bank of Beverly Hills’ after-work seminars to the UCLA Medical Wives Association to political, professional, media, civic and religious organizations.
"It amazes me to look back and realize, conservatively, that in 50 years I have worked with over 40,000 clients in person, by telephone, through correspondence. Often two, three, four or more a day.
“My favorite thing? Teaching. It’s such a joy to see many of my students go on to become terrific professional astrologers. Not because I’m so great. They were already good astrologers when they found me.
“But if I showed them some things they might not have learned elsewhere . . . or an approach to and philosophy of astrology that helped them find and define their own . . . then, wonderful. If I gave them something that made them better - I can say the same to them.
“Because it’s not only true that, ‘When the student is ready, the teacher will appear’ . . . it’s also true that, 'The teacher learns more than the student.'”
Kepler Instructors are chosen for their expertise in academic and astrological knowledge and for their ability to effectively teach what they know to others in an online environment.
They must be able to produce quality instructional materials that enhance learning by using multiple strategies and approaches. They need to understand how to work with students remotely, and to develop the trust and respect of their students and colleagues.
They also need to stay up-to-date on new developments and examine the interplay of the new and old. And they must be willing acknowledge their own biases so they can present their students with multiple perspectives.
