A small part of it was translated in 'A prophecy of the white king' by
William Lilly (1644): "Kepler his Prediction upon the fiery Trygon,
beginning 1603". An interesting piece of 'astral republicanism' as such
(for a Miltonic connection), but not much from Kepler, though: pp. 27-28.
Hope this helps,

p.s. Here's the complete reference (from EEBO):
 A prophecy of the white king: and dreadfull dead-man explaned. To which is
added the prophecie of Sibylla Tibvrtina and prediction of Iohn Kepler: all
of especiall concernment for these times. By William Lilly student in
astrology. Ob peccata mutat sceptra Deus, variata Reges. Published
according to order.
Author: Lilly, William, 1602-1681.
Other authors: Kepler, Johannes, 1571-1630.
Imprint: London : Printed by G. M. and are to be sold by John Sherley and
Thomas Vnderhill, at the Golden Pellican in little Brittaine, and Bible in
Woodstreet, 1644.
