Dear Kepler College instructors, students and friends:
Kepler is embarking on a new branch of its journey to bring professional quality education to anyone interested in the field of astrology.
For two years, we have been in the process of actively revisioning our program into new forms that move astrological studies into the future through a challenging and exciting cross-cultural curriculum. We have incorporated the lessons we learned over the past 20 and developed a challenging and rewarding Certificate Program for the serious student of astrology.
When we speak of astrology at Kepler, we include its many facets. Astrology may be defined broadly as the study of geocosmic relations. It may also, as a practice, be defined as a mapping technique for a range of dynamic systems, including meteorological phenomena, group behavior, and the human personality. Our Western tradition originated at least 4,000 years ago and has generally been divided into two main branches: natural and judicial. Natural astrology is concerned with the influences of astronomical cycles on weather, climate, geological events, plagues and other processes in the biosphere. Judicial astrology is concerned with the correlations between astronomical cycles and the lives of individuals and their concerns.
Kepler believes that the better educated an astrologer is, not only about specific techniques, but also in the history and breadth of astrological development and philosophy, the better they can represent the field to their clients and to the larger culture.
This philosophy was at the core of our degree program and remains in our Certificate program. Critical thinking and open debate are important parts of the Kepler College experience.
