Picture: Paramahansa Yogananda

Yogananda had the following idea about the law of Carma:

Fate, karma, destination, call it as you like it, there is a Law of Justice, arranging in some way, but not accidentally our race, physical form and some aspects of our thoughts and feelings.

It is important to realize that we can’t escape from this basic pattern, but will be allowed to cooperate within this frame”.

And further:

the more progression we see in the self-realization of mankind, the more mankind will influence the flow of the universe with its subtle vibrations and the less mankind will be a toy in the flow of events emanating from all this.

The law of clear intention is an important cosmic law related to this.

I believe most of the readers will know this law or have met its impact.

It appears very simple: When you perform things and duties for the best, you almost have fulfilled the objective. However, it might be more complicated as presumed in a quick look.

Does it go beyond the direct reality we observe?

We live in a big illusion. What this means can’t be easily understood by anybody.

This illusion is much bigger than we can see or have an idea about and why we descended to this incarnation.

This clear intention goes beyond the illusion, and to become more aware about this, is part of a conscious life.

Slowly and step by step discovering the path to walk, and getting a real view on the truth behind this illusion. When you consciously look for the path and walks it, your idea of the why of this life will change.

At that moment you will become aware that everything you did before in clear intention, you possibly might refuse to do later on. By being more consciously aware, also the way you look at your own contribution to the world will change.

This is the path to go, walk it in full consciousness and discover.

Understand that more insight will obligate you to use other measures for your own thoughts and acts.

With a number of planets reorienting the coming month on the manner they plan to influence us energetically; it might be a good time to think over your own issues.

Preview for the month August

The month of August hides a number of important astronomical events.

We have 2 Full Moons this month, Venus is still retrograde and also Mercury will turn retrograde on August 23rd, this means we have 2 personal planets being retrograde and internally oriented.

The first Full Moon on August 1st brings a warm and comfortable energy. We have possibilities for further development and personal growth.

On August 2nd we can feel restricted by authorities in our lives.

About August 3rd we can have meaningful encounters.

About August 7th there are possibilities, it is important not to exaggerate.

About August 9th we can meet financial good luck.

There may also be inspiration for special creative insights. The practical outcome however may some time to mature.

Om August 10th we will have excellent possibilities for further developments and to get new insights.

On August 13th there is an inner conjunction from Venus and the Sun. Sun, Venus and Earth are aligned at that moment. One of the points of the Venus pentagram will become actual.

This pentagram symbolizes the connection of elements (fire, earth, air and water) and their mutual influence on spirit (ether). See also the picture underneath.

A meditation can help you to connect to the cosmic message.

This inner conjunction takes places on the 21st degree of Leo, the degree of unsatisfactory spiritual experience when the ego is too dominant in this process.

So, the message is to turn inside and not to exaggerate.

This could result in a healing experience.

The New Moon on August 16th takes place close to the position of Venus and at the degree of full concentration. While Venus is still retrograde it can be a good possibility to try ot become part of the energy and to open up for messages from above. There will be good opportunities to put into practice pure inspiration.

Try to keep in touch with what can be supposed to be achieved. Ideals can become borderless and less fit to achieve.

On August 23rd we are under the influence of Mercury. On one side the Sun enters Virgo, governed by Mercury at the other side Mercury turns retrograde.

Servitude is becoming more important. In addition, messages we have been waiting for since long can reach us.

The degree of obliged nobility can give these messages an important and striking message. Noblesse obliges.

Be aware that a retrograde Venus and Mercury can be of no help to bring insights in practices. This might be related to difficult communication.

About August 25th the energy is helpful to realize plans.

From August 27th we will take our partners interest better into account.

Against the end of the month, we can have surprising and very innovative insights.

The moth ends with an energy of completion as we experience the 2nd Full Moon in a month.

This takes places on the degree of regeneration. A different notion of reality can give surprising insights.

Astrology and astronomy in daily practice.

In August Venus will not be visible. Begin September Venus will return as a Morning star, especially for those who are early risers.

Mars will be in the Southwest at sunset. On August 16th Mars will be close to the Moon.

Saturn and Jupiter will be visible from midnight until sunrise (in the south).

On the 10th of July the Netherlands experienced a remarkable day.

Our prime-minister Mark Rutte, withdrew and announced to leave our nations politic.

This change already had its pre-warning in the month March, when the outcome of district elections left the Netherlands in a rather unmanageable state, leaving the country with many urgent problems to be solved.

In the horoscope of the Netherlands, we see an actual transit from Pluto (transformation) on the Moon (countries inhabitants).

This energy indicates a transformation of power, to be expected to take place rather in harmony and based on the cosmic principle of purification.

Pluto can indicate related conflicts of power.

Groups resisting against “needed” changes, will be forced to accept these changes. And be aware that what is “needed” will not be a directive from humanity, but for humanity.

At the moment we see many planets active in NL’s 10th house (Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune).

Moreover, on July 10th the northern lunar node and the Moon where in this 10th house of destination.

It indicates there is a broad support for societal change and innovation. There will be chances for innovation guiding the way to a future based on a new society.

On November 22nd we have new elections.

The Moon is again in the 10th house of NL. The people will deal with the future of the country.

With Neptune actual (ideals) on the Sun of NL and Mercury (rational power) on NL’s Neptune ideals will play a guiding role.

Saturn actual (structure and regulations) will play an important role in establishing the new future.

Uranus actual gives indications for innovations being implemented in a rather harmonic manner.

On July 23rd Venus turned retrograde. I could feel it and by accident I saw a contribution from the philosophic quintet about the future of mankind related to the way we value economic interests above all others. A retrograde Venus revaluates this. Very impressive.


Recently I was attended to Chiron from different sides.

This took place on July 6th. Cheiron made a square (90 degrees aspect) with Mercury (the cosmic messenger).

Special was that at one of the people incurred, Chiron made a transit on the AC, at the same time having Chiron on the IC of the birth chart.

In my personal birth chart Mercury made a trine with natal Mercury.

For me a message to pay attention to Cheiron and to write a contribution for the newsletter.

Chiron has been discovered by Charles Kowal. Chiron has an orbit between the planets Saturn and Uranus and has a cycle time of about 50,4 years around the sun.

Picture: Orbit of Cheiron around the Sun (Wikipedia)

In 1996 Chiron reached the point on his orbit closest to the sun.

Chiron was in the sign Libra.

About 2021 Chiron was at his apogee (in Aries).

Caused by the rather eccentric orbit the transit time of Chiron through the signs is rather varying from 2.5 years in Libra to 7 years in Aries.

In 2027 Chiron returns son the first degree of discovery (Taurus 4th degree).

The place of Chiron in the birth chart gives indications for the wound the incarnated soul has caught in earlier lives.

Sasportas en Hall indicate that Chiron got his first wound by the denial by his mother and relates this to the separation when leaving the womb.

In this new live Chiron was confronted to his heroes. And especially one of these heroes Hercules was the one who caused his wound.

Picture: Achilles and Chiron (fresco from Herculaneum)

When working with karma, Chiron shows the wound of the soul and should be released from this pain. To release isn’t the whole solution, the soul has to make a conscious choice.

It should voluntarily release her grip on the world of the form and when necessary, choose to go through the dead of the old self, to allow something bigger to originate from it.

My other source drew my attention on Chiron and turned out to have Chiron on the same degree of the birth chart (Libra 2nd degree).

The symbol of this degree:

The transmutation of the fruits of past experiences into the seed realisation of the forever creative spirit”.

It recalls for us the picture that we are consciously using ancient truths to be helpful to use the wound to develop new insights as a contribution to the own process of healing.

The Owl

In preceding newsletters, I paid attention to the owl and its symbolic, especially because Eleonore (co-writer for some articles), received interesting messages related to this bird.

Beneath a picture of the card “the Owl” from the collection Medicine cards by Jamie Sams and David Carson. The cards represent animals as a symbol of healing power.

As Eleonore’s contribution to this newsletter couldn’t be delivered in time to be part of this issue< I got the idea to pay attention to the symbolic of the Owl in this issue.

Owl …



Time and space.

Will truth be revealed?

Holy bird,

Chase away deceit

in your silent flight.

Athena, the Greek Goddess of wisdom, always was accompanied by an owl, sitting on her shoulder.

Without being noticed, the owl revealed truth to her.

Owl had the power to give Athena’s blind eye power of vision, to allow her to speak the truth and not only half of it.


Medicine-cards Jamie Sams en David Carson

Saturn and Neptune

Saturn is already known by mankind since ancient times.

As the planet still visible with the bare eye and distant from earth, he had an important function.

Saturn imposed to us the understanding of limitation and of the need for structure.

Passing Saturn meant the end of the known world. Behind it was uncertainty, the basis for our belief systems. At the border we saw a divine authority, and this was supposed outside of mankind.

Since the end of the 18th century this idea changed step by step in discovering the trans-Saturnale planets.

In 1789 first Uranus had been discovered.

Known borders were broken and new types of freedom came through.

In society we saw monarchs allowing their people more rights and freedom.

Monarchs not allowing this caused revolutions as we have seen in France.

The first free country for former slaves was established (Haiti) and the United States started a freedom was against their founding countries.

In 1846 on September 23rd the planet Neptune had bene discovered.

Neptune was in Aquarius the same sign where Saturn was at that moment.

When 2 planets are together in the skies (we call this a conjunction) their energies try to cooperate. It also indicates the beginning of a new cycle. A cycle of Saturn and Neptune takes approx. 35 years.

By then Saturn made a complete tour through the ecliptic and Neptune has only passed 2 or 3 signs.

Such a cycle begins on a dedicated degree, containing a message for the complete cycle.

Saturn and Neptune are rather contradicted in their nature.

Saturn gives limitations and structures, Neptune in the contrary makes unbounded and makes a connection to the unknown possible.

In 1846 the conjunction had a message about a harmonic combination of making plans and realizing these. Both about, ideals, practical work, and social goals as well.

At the same time Neptune in Aquarius reminds us to noble goals and spiritual flexibility.

The combination proposed good perspectives and indeed they appeared as a result.

The Crim war ended in a peace treaty and the foundation of the rights for civilians and soldiers in periods of war were agreed. Also, the base principles for the Red Cross were founded.

At the moment we see both Neptune and Saturn in the sign Pisces (Neptune in the last decade, Saturn in the first decade). On February 20th, 2026, we can expect the next conjunction. This will take place on the first degree od Aries 9also the first degree of our ecliptic.

It will take some years to arrive at this point, however it pr poses a nice symbolic to be prepared for.

The astrological mandala indicates the appearance of new forms of consciousness.

In this process both future and restrictive energies take part.

This comes to the foreground by Saturn energy (limitation and sense of reality, restricted views) and by Neptune energy (ideals and dreams). Unfortunately, we still have a mindset where dreams should be proven on forehand).

However, we should be aware that we need both energies in good interaction to design the future.

Newsletter Juli 2023


Issues in this month’s edition are:

  • Preface

  • Preview month July

  • Important energies

  • Hercules

  • Astronomy and astrology in daily practice

  • Venus retrograde

  • Children (Kahil Gibran)

  • Wisdom of Lao Tse


Nowadays we are in the transit period from Pisces to Aquarius. We are approaching the promised Aquarius era. This influence will become stronger, at the same time reducing the influence of the Pisces era.

Gradually the accent on community as a whole and our expected role in relation to the creation of the new society will increase.

Awareness, consciousness, servitude, and services become increasingly important.

The idea of “everybody for the own ego and God for all of us” still can be recognized in our world in many different societal expressions and actions. There still is a focus on rights and equality, however we lack the insight in our obligations to be a real part of mankind by using our talents in the interest of the whole and to help improve the wellbeing of all. Having talents also gives the obligation to develop them and to use them in service to mankind as a whole.

Preview for the month July

The month of July will be a rather quiet month. Nevertheless, there are some important changes of energies.

In the first place Venus turns retrograde (for more detail see the article dedicated to this, also in this number). Also, the lunar nodes will change signs. Both are changes having their influence indirectly.

The month begins with good opportunities for personal development and growth.

We can be surprised by unexpected events in the area of relations and the valuation of people or material issues around you.

The Full Moon on July 3rd can give you insight about activities needed, related to family life.

On July 7th we will get good chances to further develop our new insights.

On July 10th the planet Mars enters Virgo. Our activities will be related to the interest of the society around us, we become more service oriented. There may be some opposition related to the ideals we will try to bring in practice.

About July 16th there will be opportunities to let new insights in our lives play a role.

The New Moon on July 17th on the 25th degree of Cancer gives opportunities to success.

We should be aware to use a positive imaginatory view and be receptive for assistance from above.

Almost at the same moment the lunar node axis makes a transfer from Taurus and Scorpio to the following signs in the ecliptic (Aries and Libra).

We will be offered opportunities for new initiatives and acquaintances with persons being able to help us to find solutions related to our karma issues. Don’t be reluctant but be prepared to use the opportunities offered.

Between July 20th en 23rd energy may turn out to be complex and contradictory.

We can be very receptive for our ideals and at the same time feel resistance in our efforts to live them. About July 22nd it is better to keep away from unsafe places.

On July 23rd Venus will start to run retrograde. This will last until September 4th. It is a period of reorientation on our value systems. The first issue to understand is the relative importance of wealth and luxury in relation to other value systems. Our Ego might be very reluctant to accept these insights.

About the end of the month, we will become more related to serviceability and related actions.

Hercules is a star sign between the signs Lyra, Snake and Dragon.

Not very surprising to those who are better informed about the 12 challenges of this mythological hero. Underneath a picture from 1690 (Hevelius) with these signs.

East of the star sign Corona Borealis and West of Lyra, the somewhat unclear star sign Hercules can be found. In the pattern (it forms the letter K), we see the so-called Kneeling man, swinging his cudgel. It looks like he is kneeling on the North pole and touches with his left foot the star sign Draco (the dragon). According to the Romans who called him Heracles, he trampled the dragon.

On the head of the Kneeling man, we find a double-star in beautiful colors orange-red and blue green. This is Ras Algethi, literally meaning “head of the kneeling man”. The star is related to the role of the hero, who worships the God or Goddess and obeying them.

Who is this hero, who, according to the ancient Greek, had to fulfil a duty nobody could accomplish?

Kneeling? And for who? The ancient Egyptians knew more about it. Kneeling you do for a God and to honor him or her. This was pictured in a hieroglyph: on one knee, with your right arm in the air and your left arm bended.

You don’t kneel on the North pole as such, it was seen as a holy place, the source of life and connected to Ursa Major (the Great Bear), the mother of life and protector of all living hierarchies.

The myth of Hercules

Hercules is the hero who has been pictured most in ancient times.

His famous fight with the “Nemeic Lion” can be found on more than 550 pictures on ancient amphoras. Hercules was a brave man who approached his goals straightforward.

A silent man, convinced and focused on his heavy duties to be fulfilled.

Such as his journey to the Hades, where he had to get Cerberus, the dog and take it to the earth as an evidence he had succeeded to go there and return.

Hercules was born as a bastard from Zeus and a mortal woman Alkmene. Already shortly after his birth and lying in his cradle he showed his talents by strangling two poisonous snakes.

When he was 18 years old, in a vision, two women appeared to him as the personification of Virtue and Vice.

Picture 2. Tarot of Marseille (the lovers).

The road of Virtue was small and dangerous, but ended in eternal fame. The straight road to Vice led to a life filled with desire and evil.

Hercules went convinced the road of Virtue and soon his difficulties appeared.

Shortly after he had married his wife Megara, Zeus struck him with insanity and in a fit of rage he killed his wife and children.

When he returned to reality he was filled with regret. As penitential exercise, he accepted to fulfill the 12 assignments of king Eurystheus. He was helped as well as worked against (especially by the jealous Hera) by Gods in fulfilling these assignments.

Hercules finally managed to fulfill al these assignments, known as the labors of Hercules.

One of them is the killing of the Nemeic Lion, who could not be killed with weapons, because his fleece was harnessed.

After a fight Hercules managed to kill the lion with his hands by strangling him and breaking his back.

He used the claws (only these could be used to cut the fleece), to make a fleece that he could wear to protect him as a harness, when carrying out the other assignments.

Picture 3 Strength, tarot of Visconti

After having fulfilled his assignments, Hercules was killed when he clothed in a poisoned cloak.

This cloak was a present from his second wife Deinara, who received it from Nessus. She expected the cloak to be washed in a love drink.

Stretched on stake he was hit by the lightning and taken up to heaven as a God. The body disappeared in the mist, and the next day when the fire was extinguished nothing of Hercules could be found. Zeus had taken his son home and placed him in the skies.

The meaning

The central theme is the hero, only able to win when he respects the will of the Gods.

The card Strength from the Rider Waite tarot illustrates the harmonic relation between the civilized man, the woman, and his animal nature: the lion.

Picture 4. Rider Waite tarot (Strength)

The meaning of this card depends on the version you select: the patriarchal or matriarchal.

The lion is the symbol of our instincts to survive and vices as wild aggressive impulses.

In the myth, Hercules kills the lion. He had severe problems, especially with his female side.

In a rage he killed his wife and children and was sentenced by taking up a female role to get purified.

In this way he served 3 years at the court of the Lydian Queen Omphale.

He had to fulfill different female obligations also wearing his lion fleece and swinging his cudgel.

This therapy helped him to integrate his repressed side and being freed from his delusion.

However, the women inside him was wounded and couldn’t be healed. This ultimately took his life.

In the myth we see that the female side should be respected.

This is also the theme of the Kneeling man, worshipping the mother Goddess.

She governs all creation and life and death. In the card this is still present, we see the women taking care of the Lion in love, showing her way to harmonious life.

This theme, still to be found in mythological parts was respected in ancient times. The Goddess Inanna for instance, the Sumerian opposite of Venus, was pictured standing on a lion, mastered by her.

In the patriarchal version we find Hybris. Hybris is the ancient Greek word expressing pride, brutality, haughtiness, and impudence, especially against the Greek Gods or divine order.

Ras Algethi

The Alpha star of the group Ras Algethi marks the head of the Kneeling man.

This star has a special relation to the role of our hero.

Mankind was driven by a nameless desire and desire seeks a goal.

When the goal has been reached, the desire remains, nevertheless.

This star gives you the need to worship something bigger and greater than you yourself. During your life this can become an obsession.

You will have to fight a struggle against this and use your energy for the ultimate goal in your life.

This is related to spirituality or any other divine assignment.

The star influences the movements in contempory times.

To fight against injustice or use our nature in balance with an eye on all types of life around.

Astrology and astronomy in daily practice.

In the month July Venus will be visible as evening star. This will be the last month during this year, as Venus comes closer to the Sun and will turn retrograde at the end of the month.

Mars will be in the Southwest at sunset. On July 21st Mars will be close to the Moon.

Saturn and Jupiter will be visible from midnight until sunrise (in the south).

On June 4th we had a challenging Full Moon, I wrote about it in the last newsletter.

For me this resulted in a flu. This turned out to help me to get more clearness on Saturn in Pisces issues. The same day Saturn mate a transit on my IC. I found myself back in the challenging situation to have to solve everything personally without help from my environment.

Also, in last month’s newsletter there was a story about an owl on the branch in the garden of one of my friends. Every now and then the owl disappears and after a while reappears. Every time this happens there is a message. In this case about the passing away of somebody and a related heritage.

On June 11th Pluto returned in Capricorn. We were immediately reminded to the abundance of work still left to be carried out on the improvement of societal systems around us.

We saw attempts to regulate intensive farming and the stream of refugees.

Time will be our witness to see whether we improved enough to follow the requirements of the Aquarius Age, where our personal interests are expected to be part of those for humanity as a whole.

When Pluto entered Aquarius earlier this year, we were informed about developments on Artificial Intelligence. As soon as Pluto returned to Capricorn, we saw initiatives to become more prudent with respect to them. The ethical discussion around the subject became more intense.

On June 17th we had the yearly event of Saturn turning retrograde and in Pisces.

This was very special in relation to “Father’s Day” in our country.

In my personal situation this resulted in some rather special complications around the theme’s expectations, obligations, responsibility, and unconditional love.

On June 22nd I visited Eleonore and had the chance to observe the owl in her garden personally.

Underneath the picture I managed to take there.

On June 17th Saturn turned retrograde and on June 30th Neptune did the same.

Where Saturn supports structure and clarity, Neptune will change this in unlimitedness.

A retrograde movement turns the expected result into the contrary.

Halfway these influences (on June 24th) we saw some attempt for change of power in the Kremlin.

The aspect between Mars and Uranus on this day was a guarantee for unexpected happenings.

On June 23rd on a walk in a small town I saw on the roof of a house the nest of a stork.

Underneath the picture I managed to take.

Picture: Storks on a chimney in Blokzijl 23062023 (Jan Weber)

Venus Retrograde

On July 23rd the planet Venus will turn retrograde. This time on the 29th degree of Leo.

The last time Venus turned retrograde was in December 2021 (in Capricorn).

In August 2015 it also happened in Leo. Each Venus cycle knows 5 retrograde periods, together covering a period of 8 years. The inner conjunctions of the Sun and Venus (Venus is positioned between the Sun and Earth in one line) together form the figure of the 5-pointed Venus’s star.

These retrograde periods of Venus remind us to reflect on everything of “value” in our lives.

We can think about material (money or other possessions) as well as immaterial values (personal relations, friends, and the world around us (nature)).

Venus in Leo will put more focus on the necessity of extreme luxury.

On August 13th, when Venus and Sun both are on Leo 21st degree, this energy will be most prominent.

It is the degree reminding us to become aware of the actuality of social values related to luxury.

Possibly a moment to become more aware of the over-value of material things in our lives, in many cases at the cost of other types of (in most cases) immaterial values.

In the past many problems came forth from this behavior, let us be prepared to change this focus to the benefit of the well-being and nature as a whole.

Children (after Kahlil Gibran: the Prophet)

Your children aren’t yours

They are the sons and daughters of the desire from life to itself

They come from you, but aren’t yours.

They are with you, but don’t belong to you.

You may give them love, but not your thoughts and conviction,

because they have their own thoughts.

You may shelter their bodies but not their souls.

Because their souls live in Tomorrow’s house, not accessible to you, not even in your dreams.

You may try to be like them, but don’t try to make them like you.

Because the live isn’t lived backwards and doesn’t stay in the past.

You are the bows helping to shoot your children as living arrows into the world.

The archer sees the goal on the endless Path

He bends you with his power, to let his arrows fly swift and far.

Be happy the bowman bends them in his hand.

He loves the arrow flying away, and the bow as well.
