Kepler Online Course -- Soul: Eternally Recurring and Evolving (5 Classes, Thursdays, April 17-May 15; 5:30-8 PT or 8:30-10 ET)
Conducted by Joseph Crane, Enid Newberg

The third course builds on the first two courses (Astrology and Self in the Ancient and Medieval Eras; Soul and Connecting to the Cosmos) but is also a departure from them.  In this program we consider the individual’s karma and the soul’s movement through many lifetimes. We explore the contributions from ancient India, the many spiritual and astrological perspectives on karma and reincarnation, as well as modern astrology's adoption of them. We survey and apply the myriad ways that astrologers from Leo through Rudhyar and Bailey have worked with these issues, ending with contemporary approaches to astrology and the soul’s incarnations to astrological practice.
Here is the sequence of presentations.

  1. Idea of reincarnation in ancient Eastern and Western thought. Encounters with Indian philosophy and culture.  How does reincarnation and karma reflect in Jyotish, traditional Indian astrology?
  2. Stock Photo #2058-293, Cosmic MandalaTashichho DzongThimphuBhutanWest finds East: roots of the 19th century theosophical movement, its philosophy of evolving reincarnation.  It’s sizable influence on astrology.
  3. Twentieth century movements: Alice Bailey and Dane Rudhyar in particular.
  4. Contemporary developments: Development of outer planets, Lunar Nodes; the contributions of Spiritual and Evolutionary Astrology.

After the completion of these classes, there will be an open house live web conference for all participants to share their experiences and insights with the material.

Over the past 20 years, the Astrology Institute has provided astrological instruction, consultations, and research to the worldwide astrological community.  Our focus is a study of astrology within its historical and cultural contexts. Additionally, we strive toward the integration of astrology and psychology and of modern and traditional psychological and spiritual perspectives. 


Even if you’ve seen a professional astrologer in the past or you are one yourself, you may benefit from a different perspective. It is also helpful to have your chart updated periodically. If you are interested in looking at or discussing your astrological chart, see our Astrology Sessions page for more information about how to set up an appointment.


We have developed tutorial options to meet the particular needs and inclinations of our students while maintaining a cohesive astrological program. Visit our Learn Astrology page for more information about these programs. Students can start at the beginning by learning and applying basic skills. More advanced students can further develop their style of chart synthesis and interpretation, deepen their knowledge of astrology and its culture, and receive ongoing help in working with clients.

In addition, we produce a monthly newsletter with astrological profiles of well-known people as well as general information about upcoming events and programs.


Over the years, we have published astrological books & treatises on astrology’s techniques within the context of history and culture. Visit our Articles page to see a sample of our published work.
