Different time periods and different cultures have their own methods for interpreting astrological charts and making predictions. This webcast will compare and contrast three primary methods: Jyotish or Vedic from India, Hellenistic from Ancient Greece and modern Western astrology.
Presenters include both Kepler College faculty and alumni. Gary Gomes, MBA, faculty member and President of the Council for Vedic Astrology will use Jyotish for his interpretation. Joseph Crane, MA, faculty member and author of The Hellenistic Legacy will be analyzing the charts using Hellenistic Astrology. Kepler College alumni Norma Jean Ream will be present a modern Western psychological interpretation.
Kepler College, based in Lynnwood, Washington, is the only college in the United States that offers liberal studies degrees that include an examination of how different cultures and different time periods linked celestial events with human concerns. The most widespread example of this common activity is the controversial subject of astrology. Our faculty are well respected experts in the field.

They have a chance to compare how Eastern and Western cultures interpreted celestial events and the role astrology played in each culture.
