It is with sadness that we mark the passing of Jeff Jawer on February 10, 2015. In hospice because of lung cancer, he was surrounded by his loved ones, his wife Danick, their two daughters, Laura and Lyana and his friend and business partner of many years, Rick Levine. Jeff provided inspiration with grace and humor, along with great teaching and guidance for so many. He supported the work of Kepler from its founding to the present. We all miss him.

Whether we are 5 or 50, we can be faced with the question of “what do I want to do when I grow up?” We usually have a better sense of what we don’t want than where we might fit. But using the techniques of vocational astrology, you can gain insight into your unique areas of opportunity.
About a third of our lives are spent working. What most of us want is not just a job, but something that can utilize our talents and bring us satisfaction. The seeds of our personality, proclivities, likes and dislikes can be found in the natal chart. Using vocational analysis, you can discover whether being your own boss is a good option, what types of work are most satisfying, and what issues you may encounter in your work environment.
When it comes to choosing a career, knowing your strengths as well as weaknesses gives you a leg up in today’s competitive environment. Please join Faye Cossar and Judith Holloway this fall for a 10-week in-depth course that shows you how vocational astrology can help you and your clients discover your passion.
Instructor: Kate Petty
Course is 5 weeks
Prerequisite: basic astrology including use of transits, solar arc directions, and secondary progressions
This is a practical, hands-on course designed for astrologers who would like to incorporate some basic symmetrical techniques into their practice. Each student will work with two charts throughout the course: their own or someone close to them, and that of a public figure. Students will be expected to apply each covered technique to their two chosen charts each week. A portion of each live online session will be interactive, as methods are applied and findings uncovered and shared by students. This is primarily an experiential course and will include the introduction of several visual tools including dials, midpoint trees, and arc openings. There will be weekly assignments. The course is offered on either a pass/fail or audit basis.
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!
