Science Fiction explores possibilities of the past, present and future. So does astrology! Astrologers are often ardent science fiction fans and what better piece of science fiction to consider than Star Trek?
Of course, trying to work with the astrology of science fiction characters poses some interesting challenges to astrology, for example:
• First you have to deal with a larger question: What happens to astrology if humans colonize space?
• And, of course, does astrology even make sense for fictional characters and stories?
• Another consideration is whether or not our science fiction tales reflect an astrological zeitgeist?
Star Trek writers and fans have created birth places, dates and times for Star Trek characters. These are the three critical pieces of information needed by an astrologer to create a natal chart. So you can find articles on the web considering the charts not only for Gene Roddenberry, the creator of the Star Trek universe, or the first date and time the show first aired, but also of the actual characters in the show.
My first experience with the Kepler Certificate Program has been an amazing journey. After many years of reading and trying to understand how astrology works, I decided I needed help pulling all the pieces together.
Since I work and have a family, the Kepler online learning program has been a wonderful way for me to reach out to the Universe and understand just a little more about who I am and where I want to go. The teachers are extremely knowledgeable and accessible.
The online learning environment is a great tool with video, audio, webinars, resource links, pdf documents, etc. Kepler also includes their own text and work book and a great selection of an easy to understand astrology books. With the ability to review any area I may find challenging, my learning is exciting and adapted to my needs.
I am enthusiastic and looking forward to continuing my astrological search with Kepler.
