Connecting the dots: astrology and awareness
Connecting the dots or seeing the bigger picture, that’s my goal with astrology. This world often doesn’t make sense, right? We live in a world that raises so many questions. The answers we seek are not of this world. We have to turn inward and connect with our essence to find what it is we’re looking for. Or to discover that we’d better stop worrying and searching whatsoever.
I see astrology as a tool to (re)connect with our soul and our soul’s purpose. On this blog I write my thoughts about studying astrology, the ‘science’ of cosmic connections. I focus on my findings based on my own natal chart, transits and secundairy progressions. There is nothing new under the sun, but a lot to find out…
I am particularly interested in evolutionary astrology (Jeffrey Wolf Green, Mark Jones), esoteric or karmic astrology (Alice Bailey), and the astrology of the invisible luminaries or black lights (Don Néroman, Carteret, Bode). I work with the centaurs Chiron, Pholus, Nessus and Chariklo (our astrological link to our ancestors, thank you Melanie Reinhart!) and the asteroid goddesses Ceres, Juno, Pallas Athena and Vesta. Eris and Sedna keep on popping up, they attract my attention more and more.

Do you think that astrology is nonsense? Then DON’T continue reading. Nobody is obliging you to do something with it or to become a ‘believer’. That’s my only message to sceptics (click video):
The crazy ones
(Full text of the 1997 Apple campaign)
Here’s to the crazy ones.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
They’re not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can quote them, disagree with them,
glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.
Because they change things.
They push the human race forward.
While some may see them as the crazy ones,
we see genius.
Because the people who are crazy enough to think
they can change the world, are the ones who do.
Astrology makes (no) sense
Forget the predictions on the last page of a women’s magazine or a free newspaper. Forget astrology TV… Think different. To those who are really curious and dare to be ‘crazy’ in the eyes of the masses, this website may be interesting.
Looking at the skies
Astrology has been practiced for thousands of years and plays a significant rol in many (old) cultures from all corners of the world. There were times that not a single decision was taken without “looking to the skies”. Astrology is for everyone, adapted to your level of consciousness. It serves as an aid that derives from the way an astrologer applies it, comparable to the connection between the artist and his art or the poet and his poetry.
Astrology is a language that helps to map out our complexe reality. It can be be a helpful tool to grasp – in a nutshell – the eternal universe that we are part of. As all things, astrology is subject to change, especially in the last couple of decades. I invite you to go on a journey with me…
