Described below are important facts about Kepler's Research Features


For the research-oriented astrologer Kepler has an advanced 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.

Kepler 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!

The 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, etc.

You 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.

Kepler 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 they get.

When researching Aspects, Midpoints, or Harmonics you can compare the frequency that occurs in the chart being studied to the frequency that occurs during any time period.

AstroSignature: An AstroSignature is a combination of astrological influences that contributes to a particular personality characteristic, behavior, or tendency. For example, you may have a theory that the following astrological influences incline a person be more aggressive, motivated, and dynamic: Sun or Mars in Aries, Mars aspecting Sun, Jupiter, or Uranus. You may also believe that certain influences contribute more to the personality characteristic than other influences: for example, you might want to give more weight to a Mars-Uranus aspect than to a Mars-Jupiter aspect. You might want to give more weight to squares than to trines, and more weight to aspects with smaller orbs than larger orbs.


  • AstroSignature research: allows you to produce a sorted list of scores on a personality characteristic. You can also modify the AstroSignature formula or create your own AstroSignature. There are many helpful advanced features in the AstroSignature research that make customizing your own AstroSignature very easy, and also to be able to use astrological factors that go beyond the basic planets in sign, house, and aspect, such as midpoint structures, 3-planet and 4-planet harmonic patterns, harmonic signs, rulerships, and the ability to produce a score only if 2 or more astrological factors occur simultaneously. AstroSignature research allows you to do very sophisticated research very simply. It is a wonderful tool for simply seeing what charts have the strongest emphasis or for using this information to select the most appropriate people from a group of charts you have entered for a particular purpose, or to test an astrological theory.
  • Match Making: The Match Making research feature is very similar to the AstroSignature Research feature described above, except it analyzes the compatibility between two charts instead of one chart. The Match Making research feature allows you to produce AstroSignature scores for pairs of people, whereas the AstroSignature research feature described above is for individuals. As with the AstroSignature research feature for individuals, you have a wide range of astrological factors that can be included in building the AstroSignature, and you can include an analysis of synastry (aspects between the charts and planets in one another's houses) and you can use the "AND" function to combine together astrological influences to include similarities of aspects or sign positions in your Match Making AstroSignature. You can also analyze astrological influences in the composite chart. Note that an analysis of all scores between two groups of people can take some time to calculate because, for example, if you have 100 people in each of the two groups, there are almost 10,000 possible pairs of people and all 10,000 combinations will be analyzed. If there are 1,000 charts in each of the two groups, there are almost 1 million possible pairs of charts that will be analyzed! We call this feature the Match Making research feature because it allows you do exactly that: match people together.
  • Pairs (Relationships/Events) Research: Pairs Research is similar to Match Making research in that two charts are compared, but in Pairs Research, you specify which two charts should be paired. Suppose, for example, that you want to compare birth and death charts, or birth charts and accident charts, or husbands and wives. You want to know what happens at the time of an accident, at the time of death, or what brings two people together and become married. Pairs research allows you to do exactly this kind of research. You pick which two charts are paired, and the research is done based on this pairing. Match Making research searches through groups to find out which charts score highest in various compatibility AstroSignature scores, whereas pairs research allows you to research charts that are already paired (such as husbands and wives, or natal charts of people with the dates of accidents) to discover what is occurring in these paired charts.
  • Forecast Research of 1 Day: This research feature allows you to compare a group of charts to find out which chart is most strongly activated on a given day. For example, you can create an accident-proneness AstroSignature and see which charts are most inclined to accidents on a given day according to the AstroSignature that you have created. Another example of how this feature can be used is to create an AstroSignature for influences that cause a company stock to go up, and then compare charts of companies on a given day to see which stocks are predicted to go up the most on a particular day. In addition to obtaining the total scores, you can view the details of what specific astrological influences contributed to the total score. You can combine together up to 32 different predictive methods by simply clicking the methods you want. This feature allows you to conduct serious forecasting research.
  • Electional / AstroSignature Forecast of 1 Chart: This research feature allows you to see a graph of an upcoming time period for one chart or for the transiting planets in the sky. You can obtain a line graph of athletic performance for the next 6 months, for example. This allows you to pick the best date for an athletic competition for this person by simply looking at the graph. You can also view the specific astrological influences that contribute to the score on each day. You can look at transit-to-transit graphs (which some astrologers like to analyze for picking the best date for an event (electional astrology) as well as 31 other predictive methods (transit-to-natal, secondary progressed-to-natal, etc.).
  • Assumptionless Research: This research features allows you to explore what planetary angles occur in a group of charts. Rather than research, for example, the occurrence of a Mars trine Jupiter aspect in the charts of athletes because you suspect that successful athletes are more likely to have a Mars trine Jupiter aspect than other people, you can look at the distribution of the Mars-Jupiter angle in the charts of athletes to see what angles show up. You can even include a graph of the random distribution as well, so that you can compare your findings to a random distribution; this is very helpful because a Mars trine Jupiter angle or any other angle is not likely to be equally distributed around the zodiac by chance. The Assumptionless Research feature is powerful, allowing you to see what relationship two planets have to one another in a group of charts. You can use the Assumptionless Research to casually observe what planetary angles occur in a group of charts, or you can use this information to build your own AstroSignature that can be tested in research. These tools are fun as well as being so powerful that you can conduct research at a very sophisticated level.
  • Midpoints and Harmonic Patterns: This research feature allows you to research a specific angle or harmonic, or to view the distribution of harmonics or the distribution of the angle of one planet to the midpoint of two other planets. This research feature therefore provides more Assumptionless Research features for exploring distributions of harmonic patterns and midpoint patterns as well as researching a specific pair of planets or midpoint structure. The range of kinds of Assumptionless Research that you can do is tremendous. Click here to view the details on how to run this research option.
  • Specific Astro Factors: These research features allow you to find out which charts have a planet in a particular sign or house, or other factors like a planet in particular degrees. These research features provide you a handy way to see which charts have a particular astrological factor in common. You can also analyze a combination of two astrological factors here. For more complex combinations of astrological influences, use the AstroSignature research feature described above.
  • Specific Astro Factors for Compatibility: This research feature allows you to find out which pairs of charts have a particular aspect between two planets or a particular planet in a house.
