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.”

Imagine a way to access the details of your life-script (your karma). You could gain understanding of your life purpose, know when to seize opportunity, and have the foreknowledge to remediate difficult circumstances. This is the tradition of Jyotish, the astrology of India. This courses gives you tools to make use of the concepts and practices of Indian astrology, including how it can play a healing role in our lives, and how it can be an adjunct to your Western Astrological work.
The course will be hands-on with multiple example charts. Your astrological analytic skills will be strengthened through the use of the charts of ordinary people.

By the end of the term you will learn:

  • The rules for evaluating a planet’s aptitude and temperament, and how it will play out in the life.
  • To make sense of the often contradictory indications shown in the chart.
  • How the Varga (Divisional charts) provide additional insight on a specific topic.
  • The timing method of Dashas which determines when a planet will deliver on its promise.
  • Additional methods, including Indian transit principles, yogas (special planetary combinations), and the fascinating history of this unbroken astrological tradition.

This short article is focused on the unique ability of Mary Shelley to tell a story with great imagination by thinking out of the box. She was born with her Virgo Sun sign in conjunction to the planet that triggers innovation, Uranus. It gave her a strong mind that did not fear what others might think of her even after publishing a book such as Frankenstein during the 19th century. Uranus is the ruler of her 9th house with the sign Aquarius placed upon its cusp. The 9th house has connections to publishing, education and writing. Both Uranus and Aquarius have an emphasis on independence. Ms Shelley was self-educated early in life and loved making use of her father’s vast library. She said that this is where she found peace of mind.
