The records and history of a major communications technology company will be compared to Mercury retrograde periods to attempt to correlate them with disruptions of service and increased workload.  Frank will also include charts for the company’s founding and IPO, as well as day-to-day operations.

 Manda Selva, MSW

Violent Incidents: Astrological Midpoints in Mundane and Personal Events

After years of midpoint research, Manda has indentified what seem to be significant links between certain mundane and personal events and specific midpoints. For example, the study of Jupiter/Uranus midpoints and lottery winners, or Mars/Uranus midpoints in school shootings show statistically significant correlations. Manda will present both of these studies, and findings which stress the relevance of this technique in mainstream astrology.

 Jagdish Maheshri, PhD

 Earthquake Prediction Model 

Jagidsh will present his research on the prediction of earthquakes of magnitude seven and higher. The research has already shown a correlation between certain inter-planetary configurations (encompassing the relative geocentric positions and angles of all planets) and the occurrence of strong earthquakes. This work extends the research by including the top 16 most frequently occurring angles for each pair of planets.

"I have been attending astrology conferences since 1972...
The Kepler Conference is the best one ever! 
I learned something new and of value in every lecture. I have never experienced this before. I also learned a lot during breaks, lunch meetings, etc. I have never attended so many brilliant presentations.
This is much more than just another conference. It’s a new movement in astrology. 

Astrology is at last entering the 21st century! "

Alex Trenoweth, MA

"Courtney Roberts was able to assemble a fine and diverse cast of researchers for this groundbreaking conference…

Most of us came away with the clear idea that we had set a very high bar for future astrology conferences.  We… also felt we had thrown down the gauntlet to the scientific community who continue to disregard astrology as medieval superstition.

I think this was one of the best astrology conferences I've ever been to!

I think we made history this weekend."

Will Morris, PhD

Thanks to Courtney Roberts!
"This conference was packed with useful information and ... the highest levels of dialogue I have experienced, including astrological conferences, innovations in medical education conferences at USC, Chinese medicine conferences and international conferences on qualitative inquiry.
This was a landmark moment. 
Anyone who thinks of astrology as pseudoscience is clearly not approaching the problem scientifically!"

Bill Meridian Sarubbi, MBA

"There was more solid research results per hour and good information per square meter in this conference than in any conference I can recall."

Boaz Fyler

Evolutionary Astrologer, Israel

... truly a privilege! 

So glad I made the trip. ...this conference will have a profound influence on the way I see the future of Astrology,  and our part in aiding it on its way.

Glenn Perry, PhD

'The more credible a field, the more widely utilized it will be.  Enhancing the credibility of astrology benefits not only the larger community, but every person who aspires to be an astrologer.'
