About Kepler College

Who we are

grads-2008

Kepler began as a dream to improve the educational opportunities for astrologers. Originally, this took the form of a 4-year college that included astrological studies embedded in a liberal arts program. The College included specialized study courses to present a survey of techniques from different cultures and different time periods.

Kepler would not have existed if it were not for the many people who have contributed to its development. This includes donors and volunteers as well as our Board, administration, faculty, staff and, of course, students. We thank you all.

After 12 years of academic offerings, economic realities meant that we could no longer keep the degree program open. But like the proverbial phoenix, Kepler has been reborn into a new format. 

Our promise to our students and supporters is that Kepler has not changed its primary goal: to provide high quality educational opportunity for anyone interested in what astrology actually is and how it has been practiced in different time periods and different cultures up through present day.

Kepler's Namesake

johanneskeplerShort Biography

Johannes Kepler was born at 2:30 PM on December 27, 1571, in Weil der Stadt, W├╝rttemburg, in the Holy Roman Empire. His family was Lutheran and he adhered to the Augsburg Confession. This adherence later caused him hardships. He was a sickly child and his parents were poor. But his evident intelligence earned him a scholarship to the University of T├╝bingen. There he was introduced to and delighted in the ideas of Copernicus. In 1596, holding the position of Matematicus (professor of astronomy and astrology) in Graz, he wrote the first outspoken defense of the Copernican system, the Mysterium Cosmographicum.

The individuals involved with Kepler College are a varied group, from administration to volunteers. We live throughout the United States and around the world. Some have over 40 years experience practicing astrology and others are relative newcomers. We all care about promoting quality education and professionalism.
