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 / 8:00 - 10:00 PM EDT

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. This is an intensive crash course. Be prepared to spend at least 8-10 hours per week on your work. 

Topics covered include:

  • Identifying planetary functions
  • Interpretation of planetary function as modified by polarity, element & mode of action
  • Expanding interpretation through chart patterns
  • Identifying dispositor patterns to better understand what the the ruling planet of each sign has to say
  • Placing where the action occurs within the astrological houses 
  • Separating the meanings of planets, signs and houses
  • Working with the major aspects to tie planets and houses together
  • Working with the major dignities and debilities 
  • Layering interpretation to determine planetary challenges and gifts
  • Identifying skilled and unskilled manifestations of the planets and how to use dispositors and aspects to help

registerAre planets better behaved in some signs than others? In an opposition, what planet is most likely to win the tug of war? Are mutual receptions always nice? The key to answer these questions and many more is understanding dignities and debilities.

Instructor: Charles Obert
DATE: Begins July 21 2019 (5 Sundays) $265
TIME:  From 9:00-11:00 am Pacific Time / 12:00-2:00 am Eastern Time

The traditional astrology tool of dignity and debility is a powerful and nuanced way to add detail to your chart interpretation. But many astrologers do not realize how effective and useful this tool can be or they think it is simply archaic and overly complicated. Nothing could be further from the truth!

The goal of this class is to show how you can reclaim this effective tool.

Can astrology tell us who we are and what we are meant to do?

A narrow view of soul confines it to the inner nature. How do we account for the relationship of soul and the larger world? How do we define “soul” and to which “larger world” are we referring?

Begins August 12, 2019 from 5-7 pm PST / 8-10 pm EST 
Conducted by Joseph Crane and Enid Newberg
All live sessions are recorded. There is also an online course site with additional materials.

INSTRUCTOR: Tamira McGillivray 
BEGINS: August 17, 2019 

This course provides students with astrological tools that can enhance their life through exploring their personal local landscape. While Astro*Carto*Graphy examines the interaction of the natal chart and planetary lines of influence across the globe, local space astrology brings the focus close to home.

registerHave you ever asked the questions: Is there more to life? What is my soul’s purpose?

DATE: July 13, 2019
TIME: 1:00 - 2:30 PM PDT / 4:00 - 5:30 PM EDT

Esoteric astrology, also known as soul centered astrology, rests upon our understanding of traditional astrology, but goes deeper. Using the lens of the seven rays, seeking soul purpose, identifying the cross of incarnation, looking at the planet Vulcan and using esoteric rulerships for the planets are all in the esoteric astrologer’s toolbox.

Students will have 6 months to complete this in-depth course.

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.

Taught by Bruce Scofield 

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.

registerPredicting the future is an intuitive need in human nature. The ability of astrologers to make predictions is one of the main reasons why astrology has stood the test of time. The skilled make more accurate predictions, and it is this skill that can lead to higher wisdom.

Take any time! Self-study course (4 months to complete)

Predictive techniques like Secondary progressions, Solar Return Charts, Solar Arc progressions and especially Transits are widely used by modern astrologers. Some of the predictive techniques of classical astrology are often the source of our modern practice and can be successfully blended with modern methodologies.
