The Kepler Certificate Program has different options designed to meet the differing goals and desires of our students. For those who wish to earn recognition for their work, there are two paths: (1) the individual certificate and (2) a program diploma.
Individual certificates are designed to build a depth of understanding around a particular astrological focus. Each certificate has at three courses. The first provides a basic understanding and the next two build interpretative skills while also introducing additional techniques and methods of approach.

The diploma provides a breadth of understanding of different astrological traditions and knowledge about astrology's history and its astronomical origins. The basic diploma is built upon three core certificates: The Fundamentals of Natal Astrology, the first two courses in Moving the Chart in Time and the first course from The Astrology of Relationship. Students have the option of completing these three certificates or taking a variety of electives to complete the requirement of the Diploma. Click here to read more about the diploma.
Shortly before our academic program ended in 2012, Kepler took the core of the astrological program and re-visioned it into a program where students could earn individual certificates as they explored different subject areas in depth. But we also wanted to provide a full program that covered a broader range of astrological studies. The diploma program requires 12 courses plus 2 chart calculation labs. The program is not easy and takes at least 3 years of study. Maki took on that challenge. Along the way she earned a certificate in the Fundamentals of Natal Astrology, Moving the Chart in Time and The Astrology of Relationship. She had to work twice as hard as most of our students as English is her second language. Her teachers all agree that she is well deserving of the honor of being our first Diploma Graduate!

I've been learning astrology and reading horoscopes for clients for few years before I entered into Kepler College. But the main reason that drove me to study at Kepler was because I couldn’t feel satisfied with my knowledge, skill and performance in counseling with clients. I felt conflict often about what the proper attitude and behavior I should hold as a practicing astrologer. I questioned myself often about “did I really help my clients to understand their real problem and potential, or did I just led them to have blind faith in Astrology?”,” How are western astrologers doing their work?”…etc. For these questions, I decided to study at Kepler from beginning, and now I can say my decision has been ever so correct!
