Suppose that you are an astrologer and you would like for
your clients the following information for the coming year:
outer planet transits to the natal chart, secondary progressed
to natal, secondary progressed to progressed, and solar arc
to natal aspects. Kepler has been able to provide you this
information even 10 years ago, but now it is much faster to
obtain and easier to read. In Kepler, you no longer have to
individually select these printouts. A screen is displayed
that allows you to check which forecasts you want, and you
can save this set of selections as a default for the future.
The forecasts are displayed in time line format. The simple
text listing format is still available, but only the time line
format is available in this more elegant method of selecting
AstroClock: You can view the current positions of the
planets in real time with Kepler's AstroClock feature. You
can select the place so that it calculates an AstroClock wherever
Time Line Format: calendar date is printed periodically
so that while looking through the printout, you can see what
the dates are without needing to scroll up and down repeatedly.
Also, the date when the aspect is exact now appears in the time line
printout. Because the date was not given, some Kepler users continued
to use text listings, but now this limitation has been removed.
The time line format is quickly becoming the preferred method of most
Kepler users, and with these new features will undoubtedly continue
to become more popular. The time line format has the advantages of
allowing you to quickly and easily see what astrological influences
are occurring, when they occur, and how strong they are at any time.
After making your selections, you can scroll through the list of transits
and progressions without needing to jump between printouts.
We have also made the selection of forecasts easier by providing a
menu that allows you to jump more quickly to the different kinds of
forecasts available. In earlier versions, all of these methods appeared
together in a large menu, and some users did not realize, for example,
that they had the powerful Profile Time Line feature which gives scores
for areas such as athletic performance, accident proneness, etc. Now
you won't miss these features hiding in a menu of selections that takes
time to read.
A few other improvements has also been added: You can display along
the bottom of each time line bar a thin red strip to indicate retrograde
and/or a green strip to indicate direct motion of the transit or progressed
planet. You can also include the house position and/or zodiac sign
or exact position of the transiting and natal planets along the left
side, next to the aspect that occurs.
Maps, local space maps, horizon maps, geodetic maps, and zodiac sign
maps. Zodiac sign maps are AstroMaps that show where the zodiac sign
of the Ascendant and MC change. A horizon map is a slight variation
of a local space map; the horizon map plots the actual house cusps
whereas in a local space map house Asc lines are drawn due east-west
and the MC lines are drawn due north-south. The planet lines in a horizon
map and local space map are identical. We also added the ability to
print an AstroMap in larger sizes, with the information at the top
and bottom in smaller type, and we added the ability to select the
color of the water and land.
Selecting AstroMaps: if you select
a geographic region with a town at the center, that town can be placed
in the map; this is a minor improvement but is helpful when picking
a very small town that otherwise may not appear in the map. No other
program allows you to see the orbs of AstroMap lines and combine meaningful
information so nicely as Kepler.
Mode and Interactive Mode: Kepler works beautifully
in both "batch" mode and "interactive" mode.
You may not be familiar with the terms "batch mode" and "interactive
mode" but both modes are important to make an astrology
program easy and fun. You can easily check the printouts
you want and send them to the printer (batch mode), or
you can view printouts on the screen, select any printout
desired and immediately see it and then click on the Print
button to print it if you like (Interactive mode). Batch
mode is great when you need a lot of printouts, and interactive
mode is great when you want to "play" with the
program, poking around and exploring different ideas. Kepler
provides both in a very easy-to-use way.

wheels are beautiful chart wheels. Our art wheels were
designed by graphic artist Paul Guess. The planetary
positions are placed within these exquisitely beautiful
chart wheel images. These chart wheels are perfect for
framing. These chart wheels are best printed on a color
printer. For an incredibly stunning chart wheel, print
an art wheel on glossy paper with your color printer.
There are 30 art wheels to choose from, and there is a portrait (normal)
and landscape (sideways) version of each art wheel.
In order to make the art wheels as beautiful as possible, we added
the ability to add shadowing to the planetary information in the chart
wheel. This adds extra pizzazz to the art wheel.
Chart Wheels: Wheel and other items in printout can
be resized, moved, given different colors, change fonts
and size, etc.
Collection: A data collection of over 18,000 charts
(people, businesses, earthquakes, athletes, etc.) is included.
Atlas: Kepler comes with a complete atlas of the world
with over 260,00 cities. easy-to-use: type in upper or
lower case, see cities as you type, and narrow the search
for a specific country or state desired. The time zone
and daylight savings time information is complete and up-to-date;
every year some countries change laws regarding daylightr
savings time, and these changes are entered into our tables.

a self-learning system that is built into the Kepler
program. Avalon Lessons is not a physical school, nor
is it a home-study course. Avalon Lesson is the name
that we give to this part of the Kepler program, where
you can learn astrology step-by-step. Currently Avalon
Lessons consists of 47 classes and it teaches basic and
intermediate astrological concepts. In the future Avalon
Lessons will be expanded to include advanced levels of
study for the Avalon
School of Astrology. If you want to further your
astrological studies, come to the Avalon School of Astrology. Click
here for details.
Lessons includes detailed lessons, tests and quizzes (you
even get graded) before you proceed to the next lesson and
a logical, systematic approach that makes it possible for
you to learn astrology on your own.
Lessons is a very thorough and comprehensive course, complete
with graphic illustrations and tests . If you take the entire
course and pass all of the tests, you will have a thorough
grasp of astrological principles. In fact, you may find that
you will amaze yourself with your ability to understand people
by analyzing their birth charts. With additional study in
advanced areas you will be able to take (and pass!) tests
administered by various astrological organizations to receive
certification from these organizations, and you will have
the information you need to interpret charts and teach others.
We recommend interpreting dozens of charts for people without
any charge before beginning to charge for your services,
and to devote at least a few years of study before becoming
a professional in the astrological field.

Capabilities: For the research-oriented astrologer
there is research capability. You can find out which charts
have a particular aspect or planet in a sign or house.
For example, you can find out which charts have Sun trine
Jupiter. You can also select a specific range of research
codes to study particular groups of people, such as just
athletes, or just basketball players, or just musicians,
or just singers, or just jazz singers.
has highly sophisticated research capabilities. In addition
to basic research capabilities, Kepler can analyze all angles
between all planets and print a sorted list of which angles
occur most often. This is "assumption-less" research
and it can reveal startling new information. This kind of
research is designed for serious researchers who are willing
to take days or weeks to analyze and think about the research
results. If you are a serious researcher, this is a tool
that is likely to open new doors for you!
next step in the research process is even more exciting.
Suppose that you decide from the research results that the
group of people you are studying is more likely to have Sun
conjunct, square, or opposition Saturn, Moon in Capricorn,
or also Moon, Mercury, and Venus in hard aspect to Saturn.
You also conclude that the Sun square Saturn aspect is most
important, Sun opposition Saturn is next most important,
can create an "astrological signature" with the
exact weights that you want for each astrological factor
that is part of the astrological signature. Your astrological
profile can be as complex as you like, and you can even have
factors such as: "if Sun is in Capricorn and Moon is
in Capricorn, give 10 points, but if only the Sun in Capricorn
give 5 points, and if only the Moon is in Capricorn, give
3 points". Developing these complex rules for your astrological
signature is not trivial; this is a tool for the serious
researcher. These are tools that enable one to validate astrology
and are for the serious-minded researcher.
includes 4 hypothetical astrological signatures that were
developed with this research capability: alcoholism, image
consultant (a profession), football quarterback, and baseball
pitcher. If additional research confirms these astrological
signatures, then these hypotheses become theories that if
repeatedly duplicated become the beginnings of a science
of astrology. If this level of serious research is not your
cup of tea, that's OK. Kepler provides a vast amount of information
for various kinds and levels of interests. You can enjoy
the results of the research in any case by running the hypothetical
astrological signatures on people you know to see what scores
Birth Data on disk and have notes with each person: Kepler
stores data on disk that can be easily looked up later,
or to research the data. You can have notes (up to 360
characters) with each person's birth data. The notes section
is helpful if you need to record a special note about this
person, and it is also used to give some information about
the famous people and businesses that are included with
the Kepler program.
