1. What projects are the team working on now?
Our main project is to integrate Astrology with Energy Psychology in order to create very practical system that provides tools to any astrologer to help a client. So, we have developed completely new programs that blend those two sciences, such as Energy Astrology, Technology of Consciousness, Astrology Tapping Techniques, Astrology of Angels, as well as Astro-Animal Spiritual Guides.
That project started 8 years ago and it is pretty well developed so far, but we are constantly improving it. Results are just amazing!
2. Which branch of astrology does this school deal with and which astrological areas does it cover?
We provide education that covers many different brunches, such as Natal Astrology, practical application of dozen of Forecasting Techniques, Relationship Astrology, Fixed Stars application, Mundane Astrology, Astro-Carto-Graphy, Local Space Astrology, Electional Astrology, but the special focus in our school is given to Karmic and Reincarnation Astrology.
3. What kind of astrology training can you provide?
Students can decide to study 3 years to obtain a Kepler diploma, which is enough for them to apply for ISAR CAP program, i.e. with that number of hours in astrology education they can become ISAR CAP if they finish three additional steps of certification provided by ISAR.
The other option is that after graduation they can study on more post graduate year of Hermetic Astrology education in order to receive Hermes Certificate that is the highest educated level our School provides.
There is a third option, too. Student can decide to study only two years of Astrology with special additional modules of Energy Astrology and Astro Healing and become Astro Therapist.
These are three certified programs. Of course, anyone can choose to study any almost part in form of different astrology courses if they are particularly interested in it, but that counts only as a partial education and not as a complete training.
4. Are there any mentors on staff and how they interact with students?
Oh, yes. Apart from our regular teachers, for any group we have, there is assistant that regularly practice the exercise with students on areas that are currently studied. They also check their weekly home works, give them a feedback through their student’s pages and are also in constant touch with them via closed School FB groups.
5. Have you changed your curriculum and why? Have you noticed if there is any increase in some astrological areas?
Kepler Institute has been established in 2005 and since that time we had two major Curriculum changes. One happened in 2014 when we introduced the Energy Psychology to Astrology education and the other happened in 2018 when we started with a new Karmic and Reincarnation approaches within our Third Year of education. The biggest increase was in the area of Karmic and Reincarnation astrology, for sure!
6. What type of learning methods does the school provide that separates them from other Astrology schools?
Every student receives its own student’s page where every week he gets complete lesson in printed form as well as in audio and a recording of a video. That means that as soon as a lecture is finished student will receive all three means of learning via personal student’s page. Also, for every lesson there is homework, so that they can practice at home and when they send the homework they always get comment to it as well as a grade. Those grades, together with the exams grades form a final grade for every subject they learn. In every year they have 12 different exams / subjects they need to pass. Students also need to participate the exercise sessions with assistants so that they practice their skills of interpretation.
More than that, each student of Kepler Institute can order over 100 prerecorded workshops and have them on their student’s pages. E-books are also available through these pages, too.
It is also important to say that all the students of Kepler Institute are automatically ISAR members, so that they can participate to all the ISAR Star Club webinars and obtain additional knowledge and valuable insights from astrologers all over the World.
7. What is the quality of a school’s teaching staff? Whether you have lecturers or collaborate with other schools?
All of our teachers are ISAR CAPs and they have published many astrological articles and at least one astrology book. Of course, some of us have written more than 15 astrology books. The idea is that our teachers need to have certain experience and also to make some contribution to astrology in form of their articles and books.
Also, at least once a year, we are having guest teachers who do specialized workshops so that students can choose to have them as well, which gives them certain credit they need to make in order to graduate.
8. Do you provide multilingual classes?
Even though Kepler Institute is primarily provides education in Serbian language, which is understandable in Croatia, and other ex-Yugoslavian countries, we also have classes in English, as well as in Russian and Ukrainian languages.
9. What kinds of students do you have?
Typical Kepler student is the one who is eager to become well educated and to one day become a World class astrologer.
But sure, not all of them have that ambition. Some of them are just enjoying learning and even don’t have the intention to do the exams. That’s also possible.
When we are talking about their age level, there are all kinds of ages. We had some students who are just 18 years old and the also others who are over 70 years old. However, the majority of them are between 25 and 40.
10. Do you reward the best students on some basis?
Once a year we announce the best students in different categories, so they receive different presents and awards. And the very best of them can become our assistants! Actually, all of the School assistants are chosen from the group of our best students.
11. Is there interest in astrological research at the school level or among students?
The full name of our School is “Kepler Institute for Astrological Research and Education”. That already implies the research that we do all the time. Our standard research is required through many diploma works each student makes during their education.
Other than that, from time to time we organize different “research sections”, such as “Mundane Astrology section” or “Karmic and Reincarnation Astrology section”.
Also, we can say that some programs in our standard curriculum have been developed as a result of our own research, such as Astro Healing program. Research present in our School, more or less, all the time.
12. Schools are sometimes organizing conferences, symposiums etc. Is it the case with your School, too?
Oh yes, definitely! Since the very beginning of the Institute, back in 2005, we have annual Kepler Astrology Conferences. Those Conferences are important because we meet astrologers from all over the World, including many astrologers from the US, Canada, Great Britain, Ireland, Norway, France, Germany, Holland, Portugal, Slovenia, Croatia, Russia, Turkey, Iran, China, Australia, Argentina… Many of those astrologers offer special workshops and classes, so that the students can obtain unique astrological skills, depending of what is their special interest in astrology.
13. Have you, or anyone from your School, published some astrology book? If yes, tell us more about it.
Just as I said earlier, we all write books! I write all the time and feel very happy when I’m able to deliver a new book. My last book is called “Dragon of Solar Eclipses” and this book is not only one of the biggest books in astrology, but also the one that represents a full research of SAROS cycles. Based on that book we have a new education program, called “Dragon Teacher”, because it requires understanding of a “new language” that hasn’t even existed before! That’s also an excellent example of research in astrology.
14. How about articles?
At this moment we have almost thousand articles on our website, that are written by our teachers, assistants, many ISAR CAPs who graduated at Kepler Institute and also student’s diploma work articles. I find some of them to be inspiring and definitely very useful with information one can get from reading them. This is a very popular page at our website!
15. Hope your School is present on social media. How is that working?
We have Face Book and Instagram for Kepler Institute. Our team is regularly posting about different cosmic patterns as well as different courses that we offer. From time to time, we have some real events and lives, as well! Also, as I said earlier, each of our study groups have its own closed FB group where students can easily be in touch with their assistants.
16. Do you have any YouTube activity as well?
Yes. YouTube is great. We started with these videos recently but I think this is a way to go! At least, I really enjoy doing YouTube!
