Recently, I have read some inspiring and intriguing texts from Carlos Castaneda.

Picture: The fire from within, Carlos Castaneda

One of them:

All of us have observations, this is factual

However, what we observe is of different order,

Because we are learnt what we are expected to observe.

For all our observations we use our senses. We experience what we observe in many manners as picture, sense, smell, sound etc.

We have learnt to give it names, a name corresponding with what has been observed.

However, we can never be sure whether what we observe is identical to what other observers observe.

The other:

The unknown is hided for mankind

Possibly, veiled by a terrifying correspondence

However, it is within his reach

The unknown becomes known on a certain moment.

However, the unknowable remains unthinkable, unexplainable, inconceivable

It will never become known to us and still it is there.

Vertiginous, dazzling, and at the same time shocking in its expanse.

Aldous Huxley has written a book about this subject with the title “the doors of perception”.

This book and especially the sentence “There are things known and there are things unknown and in between are the doors of perception” inspired the band the Doors in the seventies of the last century to write psychedelic numbers as Riders on the storm.

This music opened other doors, like our dreams, ideas and creativity open various new doors enabling something unknown to become known. This is an example of realization of the potential.

The moment we are born is filled with potential.

With everything on our path, we only have to choose to experience it.

Part of the unknown becomes known to us through our experience.

By choosing, we also eliminate other possibilities, and other parts of all potentiality.

It remains unknown to us and due to our inherent limitations indescribable and inconceivable.

On our path of life, it is all about realizing your potential.

What the potential is, can be found in the birth chart.

This unique moment in the location-time-continuum, cannot be copied.

So, nevertheless the perspective, a lot will remain unknowable, it is the objective of life to discover and to learn to understand about all we did not learn until now, the contribution that is expected from us, individually and collectively.

To understand and realize this we are lucky to have many incarnations of non-existing “time”.

I wish you all a beautiful month full of insights with many dis-coveries and dis-closures of the ultimate goal of your presence in this life on earth.

Preview for the month June

From an energetic point of view, June can be expected to be a rather quiet month.

There hardly are difficult aspects. Many energies are related to the planet Venus.

Venus is in Taurus during the greater part of June and so Venus maybe powerful and related to love and nature. Venus has its influence in the material and relational sphere.

The emphasize of the question to think about “values” in someone’s life can be expected to be the most difficult one. In general, this month’s energies can be supposed to be harmonic.

When, on June 3rd Mercury has turned direct and on June 4th Saturn has turned retrograde it is possible we lose our focus and become somewhat disoriented.

About June 10th our minds are eager and sharp, we have the possibility to solve complex problems.

About June 15th we might run into unexpected events, we also could meet future friends.

Our need to communicate increases. We also can have the skills to understand difficult structures and to accept limitations.

We also might feel somewhat disoriented.

Don’t become too involved in fantastic ideals, they could turn out to be unrealistic.

About June 18th we might behave a bit distant in our personal relations, however it could quickly change to the opposite when we arrive upon a rosa cloud.

This year’s summer solstice is on June 21st at 05.11 pm (MET).

A good moment to wake up timely and meditate on the special purifying energy of this moment.

On June 23rd we can communicate our ideas and inspirations with loved one’s and transform them to beautiful artistic expressions.

On June 28th we can become disoriented again, we also could feel somewhat dazzled.

During the New Moon of June 29th, we should try to limit our expressive side. There is a chance for exaggeration.

This New Moon on the 8th degree of Cancer is symbolized as: A group of rabbits dressed in human clothes, walk as if on parade.

It symbolizes the tendency of all forms of life to imitate higher forms as a stimulus to growth.

Guided meditation might be a beautiful expression of this.

The summer solstice

Aldebaran – the red eye of Taurus

Taurus – from Urania’s Mirror (ca. 1825)

This sturdy bull of the star sign Taurus can be found between the signs Aries and Gemini.

The bunch of stars called the Hyades form the head of the bull and at the left on the head we find the red star Aldebaran and on the right horn the double star El Nath, pure white and slightly gray.

The seven stars of the Pleiades mark his back.

Aldebaran is the brightest star of Taurus. It is a vast star, when it would be in the Sun’s position it would reach as far as the orbit of Mercury. It is a perfect example of a red giant.

Aldebaran has a diameter of 44 times the Sun’s diameter.

Red giants are relative cool stars and so is Aldebaran.

When we compare the color of Aldebaran with the color of other stars we see a blue Rigel and a yellow white Capella.

Mythological origin

Aldebaran is one of the fixed stars. They are a symbol of the cosmic order for their orbit around the Polar star and as a token of the not always recognizable light from above.

In many mythologies they were considered to be representations of people who died. The name Aldebaran originates from the Arab Al Dabaran meaning the bright one who follows.

This could be an explanation that Aldebaran follows the Pleiades in the skies. Possibly we should understand this as the hunter Orion following his prey.

The prey here should be considered as the Pleiades, the seven sisters being protected by the Goddess Artemis.

Centuries ago, Aldebaran was situated in Taurus, currently it is on the 10th degree of Gemini, due to the precession of the equinox.

Taurus is a very old star sign originating from Mesopotamia more than 4000 years ago.

Taurus could also be the big bull from the paintings in the caves of Lascaux.

Being a striking bright star, in ancient Persia Aldebaran was considered one of the royal stars.

About 3000 BC these starts were considered the “guards of heavens”. The 3 other stars were Regulus, Antares and Formalhaut.

They were called royal for their connection to the equinoxes (spring- summer- autumn – winter). When the Sun passes one of these points a new season begins.

Several ancient monuments as Newgrange, Stonehenge etc. are created based on these 4 points. Especially the equinoxes of March 21st (spring) and September 22nd (autumn) are seen as points and moments to make contact to higher powers.

There are also astronomers making a connection between Aldebaran and the circle of stones in Big Horn. Old Indians probably used this place as an observatory to measure the appearance of Aldebaran just before sunrise in June.

The 4 Kings from the Tarot and their star

As all planets are connected to star signs, fixed stars are considered as guide and inspiration of certain star signs. A star sign should not be confused with zodiacal signs. The stars together form groups, imaging a figure. The zodiacal signs are related to star signs, but currently they are not in the same zodiacal position. They can be considered higher angelic energies. These 4 guards of heavens have a representative on earth and possibly are connected to the 4 kings of the Tarot.

These 4 kings add as guard additional value to the original meaning of the court cards.

Each king is the head of a series and represent the power and the maintenance of it, but also could act as protection.

The king reflects to certain properties represented by their element he has power over.

In general, one could say the king represents the ghost and from the mental condition he has power.

The pictures of the cards show real rulers, guiding us the way people react on responsibility and power.

Each king shows us, by his special attributes to what element he is connected, as for instance the lions on the crown of the King of Wands, symbolizing the element fire.

Aldebaran: position today: 100 Gemini Theme: Develop the spiritual mind through matter

Aldebaran is the Guardian of the East and connected to the element earth and a such to the King of Pentacles.

This King is seated on a black throne, ornamented with bull heads, and his hand resting on a golden Pentacle. This indicates the smart way of dealing with money and matter.

The message of Aldebaran (with the red eye) has to do with the theme integrity. His energy helps us to stick to the real standards and values.

This could bring success, but we will also be confronted with moral dilemmas, for instance between mental reasons and instinctive motives.

It indicates the importance to admit to your beliefs. Don’t doubt the own principles is Aldebaran’s message, otherwise your success may disappear suddenly.

Regulus: position today: 00 Virgo.

Theme: the will should guide the ambition and not reversed.

The star Regulus is the Guardian of the North and connected to the element fire and as such to the King of Wands. Regulus is also known as the heart of the lion. The King of Wands is a real lion king. He knows what he wants and his eagerness for actions becomes manifest e.g., in the execution of big projects.

The lions on the throne show his power. The lion who was supposed to be the King of all animals due to his power, courage, and character is also consecrated to Vulcanus, the God of Fire.

Regulus inspires the King of Wands and is a very earthly star, here it concerns especially becoming immortal in name, and about making good cheer.

This also indicates the pitfall of the King of Wands: his own limitations and weaknesses are unknown for him, as the mighty star Regulus also brings him often success.

The theme is to get rid of destructive ambition for power and learn to become familiar with the less agreeable parts of the character.

Antares: position today; 100 Sagittarius.

Theme: give up presumption.

The star Antares, the rival of the warlike Ares (Mars) is the Guardian of the West and the element air and as such connected to the King of Swords.

The Persians considered Antares the God of the Death.

Thru his color red, Antares was associated danger, disaster, and evil power.

But, as Antares is a royal star, he is also a token for honor, esteem, and prosperity.

These blessings can be lost by a too obsessive behavior. Therefore, it is important to outbalance these tendencies and accepts that not everybody has the same drive.

However, keep realizing that negative properties you admit have a less destructive effect.

The throne of the King of Swords is ornamented with butterflies, the symbol of transformation, dead and resurrection. In general, the butterfly is a positive symbol of change and immortality.

From the dead alike cocoon, a beautiful butterfly is born.

To fly has always been symbolic to the escape from the physical limitations and the earthly live.

The message Antares is giving you, is to learn to accept all properties that have been neglected by you, your parents, your educators and to let them free. Antares is a star of conclusion.

Fomalhaut: position today: 40 Pisces.

Theme: mental birth, spiritual initiation.

The star Fomalhaut is the Guardian of the South and related to the King of Cups and the element water.

Fomalhaut, in Arab ‘Fum al Hut’, is the central star of the Southern Fish.

He receives the stream of water from the pitcher of Aquarius.

Fomalhaut is connected to the Guardian of the South.

The theme of Fomalhaut brings mystical ideas, objectives, and dreams on your track.

In many cases, your thoughts and ideas are not ordinary, and this could bring confrontations with people around you. You may be involved in manipulation, but Fomalhaut connects you to collective wisdom and therefor personal success will not be an objective.

By its strong connection to the mystical world, it may be difficult to stay with the self.

As Fomalhaut is part of the mouth of a fish she also is related to the stream of water of life.

This mouth receives the water of life and prevents against flooding.

The water, as a symbol of the unconsciousness is guided so you will not be overwhelmed by it.

This gives a connection to unconscious insights. Fomalhaut is a very powerful star, and its theme is spiritual birth.

Light on the path & through the gates of gold (4)

This booklet of author Mabel Collins had been published in the first issue in 1887.

Possibly some of you know it.

When I opened it, I had been struck immediately by the contents and understood it contains messages still being of value.

At least the texts invite to reflect and offer the possibility to apply in the spiritual development of humanity.

Issues in this contribution are:

Rule 13: Long for power

Rule 14: Long for peace

Rule 15: Especially long to possess

Rule 16: But only to what relates to the purified soul and therefore equally is in the possession of all pure souls and represents the selective ownership of this whole, when it will be united.

Long for everything the purified soul can possess, to gather wealth for this unified spirit of life, being the one and only true self.

The peace you should be longing for is the sacred peace unable to be disturbed by whoever and allowing the soul to flower as a holy flower on silent waters.

And the power that the disciple should strive for will appear to him as nothing.

A beautiful moderation giving direction to our search for power, peace and property.

For the moment I leave it to the reader to try to understand these rules and get the answers.

Read them more often, every new exercise brings new insights.

Planet cycles related to Neptune

In the May newsletter I paid attention to the conjunction between Jupiter and Neptune on the 12th of April.

Every conjunction offers new opportunities to realize all potential related to energies of these planets in the coming years (decennia or centuries).

Conjunctions mark the begin of cycles and new developments. Especially conjunctions where the planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are part of, can put an emphasis on a timeframe.

In the following table an overview of all recent conjunctions (of Pluto, Uranus, Saturn, and Jupiter) related to Neptune

Planets Frequency Last conjunction

Neptune and Pluto once in ca. 495 years 1891

Neptune and Uranus once in ca. 165 years 1993

Neptune and Saturn once in ca. 37 years 1989

Neptune and Jupiter once in ca. 12,9 years 2022

We see that every cycle of Pluto and Neptune contain 3 cycles of Uranus and Neptune and also 13 x 3 = 39 cycles of Jupiter and Neptune.

In 2 cycles of Neptune and Uranus we find approx. 9 cycles of Neptune and Saturn.

The main cycle is the Neptune and Pluto cycle, the other cycles are serving this.

A conjunction is an important starting point to discover the available potential. Whether and how it will become applicable depends on other energies becoming available in the period between conjunction and opposition.

All aspects the involved planets have during this period will have their influence on the outcome.

In the period between conjunction (=New Moon phase) and opposition (= Full Moon phase) the potential becomes unveiled and becomes real in the world.

At the moment of the opposition, it is clear what has been the “result” and also what still needs to be improved. The preparations for this will be done in the period between the opposition and the next conjunction. It is a interaction of patterns where the longest cycle will be predominately.

A comparison with the morphogenetic field theory of Sheldrake shows some equality.

The quantum field between 2 conjunctions is in a permanent mode for change. At the moment of conjunctions certain energies are that dominant that such a field is a result.

However, this field also seems to be permanently in an adaptive mode.

The longest lasting cycle is settled by the energy of Pluto and Neptune together.

The last conjunction of these 2 planets took place in 1891, the preceding one in 1395.

Pluto is about purification, of all that hinders the transformation of the earthly life to what it is supposed to become.

Being human beings and therefore limited, we continuously disagree and try with our best efforts to realize the own vision about what is the real way of purification.

This will inevitably lead to power-struggles. Pluto also makes available an enormous intrinsic power willing to realize the personal objectives.

Since 1940 we walk through a phase where Pluto and Neptune continuously are making a trine.

This period will last up to 2030.

After that we will have a waning square between Pluto and Neptune (about 2060), a trine (about 2110 and an opposition (about 2120).

The last opposition took place about 1625, this as a result of the energies between 1395 and 1625.

The waning sextile (since 1940) provides us with the energies needed to adapt to the ideals of 1891.

Several suitable examples of ideals from 1891 are:

  • The founding of the socialist 1 May movement
  • Pope Leo XIII published Rerum Novarum, an encyclic against the exploitation of laborer’s
  • The first presentation of the kinetoscope (Edison)
  • The patent on radiotelegraphy
  • First plan for the Dutch “Deltaplan” (protection against the sea)
  • The brothers Wright build a first prototype for an airplane.

We simply could admit that these issues were important ideals still relevant in our current community. And as follows:

  • Appreciation of the factor labor, improvement of conditions for laborers, and fight against exploitation
  • Improvement of mutual understanding and facilitation of other techniques for contact, fight against abuse of the media, and fight against monopolization of communication by groups in power.
  • Safety and security in relation to extreme outbreaks of water.

They are all issues we can suppose to remain relevant the coming decades.

About 1930 we had a period with (semi) squares (45 degrees) between Neptune and Pluto.

It represents the economic malaise by the Beurskrach in 1929 (Jupiter square Neptune).

Value growth without substantial back-up, the upcoming fascisms, and the enormous poverty among workers. In NL we managed to finalize the “Afsluitdijk” an important milestone in the struggle against the sea. We also have seen the introduction of the first broadcasting stations.

It was also the period of memorable long-distance flights, such as of Charles Lindbergh (first transatlantic flight) and the London Melbourne race.

We still have a couple of years the opportunity to improve the effects of the Neptune and Pluto challenge and ideals.

Our Deltaplan was supposed to be finalized, however the rising levels of the oceans asks new attention.

Also, the position of workers is again in discussion. In our Western society we need them and still we try to make profit out of them.

Communication is more in the picture than ever, for example 5G networks, fake news, communication from universe.

Having passed this period of sextiles, we can expect the settlement of the use of the energies involved. About 2060, the square will clarify what has been neglected and should be taken care of in the coming period. Where we have failed to improve in purification, we can expect comparable reactions as we had about 500 years before (about 1565).

By then, we had big floods inundating low parts of the Netherlands.

Communication expanded enormously however in a much more basic form (using ships discovering new worlds). But we also saw monopolization and the negative effects of it (VOC).

The fight against suppression also was on state. In Europe we had big wars the 80-year and 30-year war).

Neptune is about unpersonal ideals, a better world in whatever form. In our visions, this better world can take an enormous dimension and lead to extremities. At least extreme for the realists among us.

Under way in a complete Pluto and Neptune cycle we come upon 3 Uranus and Neptune cycles.

The first one was in 1498, the following one in 1663, the 3rd one in 1828.

We already also have seen the first one in the new cycle in 1993.

Uranus brings us an urge to innovate and together with Neptune an urge to innovate in borderless ideals.

About 1498 Leonardo unfolded a number of astonishing ideas, as for instance a design for an airplane, a submarine, a tank.

In 1993 we had seen the reunification of Germany and the foundation of the European Union in its current format.

Saturn and Neptune are conjunct once in every 37 years. The last time in 1989, this was also of influence on the happenings in Europe, widening of limitations.

The next conjunction between Saturn and Neptune will take place in 2026. We can expect the real purified outcome of what is happening between Europe and Russia.

Saturn is about limitations and is also related to the structuring serving community.

So, we can expect new boundaries, allowing a more controllable society.

So, ideals are to be realized, however it should be in a way, it can lead to a stable community serving all participants in this community.

Jupiter and Neptune have a conjunction every 13 year, every time in the next sign in the ecliptic.

After 13 conjunctions, the cycle is accomplished and will return at the same place.

A planetary conjunction gives a bundling of energies, new opportunities can be created. On a mundane level it is depending on the energies of the planets involved. On the individual level it is depending on the patterns in the birth chart. The energy is universal (everybody can sense it). The exposure of the energy is individual (depends on the horoscope and karma of the person involved.


American Ephemerides: Neil Michelsen

Swiss ephemerides:


Astrology and astronomy in daily practice.

Also, during the month of June, Venus will remain visible regularly. However, this will be everyday a little bit later before sunrise. And not to forget in June, the nights are very short (on the Northern hemisphere) so we should be prepared to wake up early.

Also, in June Mars will be visible in the South.

At the beginning of the month Mars is still close to Jupiter, as the month proceeds, the distance between these 2 planets will grow.

On June 22nd the Moon will be accompanied by Jupiter, a day later the Moon will be together with Mars and on June 26th the Moon will be close to Venus.

On May 10th Mercury turned retrograde.

I received a question from a friend who happened to have a crash of her computer. She lost a lot of data. She asked me whether I had saved some specific information I looked up for her in the past.

When Mercury started this retrograde episode, this came out, and fortunately I still had this information and could help her.

A week later I did some shopping. When I had to pay, I couldn’t find my wallet.

Fortunately, I reminded I had some cash with me in my pocket.

I forgot twice my handy, so I could not be phoned in this time. Fortunately, the phone calls I missed were not very urgent.

A reader of the newsletter informed me about some striking happenings in her life.

She had the retrograde Mercury in her 3rd house of short travelling and communication.

At first the communication cable for internet was broken, it was impossible to communicate for 2 days.

Later when she made a road trip, she heard some strange sounds while driving the car.

When she stopped and had asked for help it turned out she lost one of the screws that was supposed to fasten the wheel. She just had stopped in time. Before traveling she had drawn a card indicating protection underway.

Jupiter in Aries

On May 11th Jupiter has left the sign of Pisces (for a short time) and entered Aries.

This has caused a big change in energy.


Jupiter remains in Aries until October 28th, and then returns to Pisces until December 20th.

From December 20th Jupiter will be in Aries again and will stay in this sign until May 16th, 2023.

In a positive sense Jupiter will enable growth and development, harmony, justice, and a high standing.

In a negative sense, a passage of Jupiter can also result in exaggeration, unsatisfiable materialism, and a lack of high standards.

In the sign of Aries this energy is directed on new initiatives. Where Jupiter is involved, there will always be a positive ground. In principal Jupiter can be considered beneficial.

Early Aries born (between March 21st and 30th) can have a lot of help from Jupiter.

The type of assistance will be depending on the area of life where Jupiter passes.

A less positive aspect of Jupiter can be the tendency for exaggeration (also in acting).

During the journey through Aries Jupiter will not make difficult aspects, so I expect this will be a positive period for all Aries born.

The experiences in our journey in life can bring us a concatenation of astonishment.

This is not likely to be identical for every individual.

The moment you are born, you can start to make use of a richness of “luggage”, supposed to be helpful in your live. Part of this “luggage” is clear: your body, the family where you were born, the social community: other parts of your luggage are less evident.

And therefore, are as such considered doubtful by many of us (your karma from earlier incarnations, your talents and preferences as can be found in your birth chart, etc.).

The essence is that everyone has an own specific path of life. On this path each decision is leading for the following decision. There is no possibility to do it twice.

As soon as you have decided, you must deal with it. You can consider repairing the effects of earlier decisions, however everything considered to decide or to repair will remain part of your life.

How can you manage to prevent to make choices you would like to repair the consequences of?

By not making a choice. I don’t think so, for this can also lead to regret.

By making a choice to favor others? By following the own ego? By choosing consciously?

There is no good or bad choice. Every choice indicates a next event on your path and will has its results in whatever outcome. You will have to cope with them.

I already remarked that life is concatenation of astonishment. To become aware leading to consciousness that is the essence. It will be unfolded on your unique path, stipulated by your own choices (routine, aware or conscious). But how can I prevent myself from disasters, some of you may question. Do you choose it yourself?

In some cases, yes, I guess, in most cases no, as what happens can be seen as a result of personal or collective choices. Think about the story of Lot in the Bible at the time of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorra, where finally Lot saw his family making other decisions, causing Lot to remain single, by adopting the angelical advice.

In our lives, we continuous have to make choices, sometimes in an intensity as Lot. And again, we could ask, what is the right choice?

Follow your heart, choose and fight in justice.

Adrienne gave me her appropriate poem about ‘live” …..

Good and evil

Light and dark

A tear and a lough


Wisdom and love

Enjoying the moment

Fight where needed

To remain who you are

And then …. suddenly ….. we run out of days


Preview for the month May

The first 2 weeks of the month will still be under the influence of the solar eclipse of April 30th.

As is visible in the following figure this eclipse was only visible in the southern hemisphere especially Chile and Argentine.

Picture: Solar eclipse April 30, 2020 (source Wikipedia)

The energy will remain of influence especially for those having a planet or other factor on the 11th degree of Taurus in their birth chart.

Another factor of influence will be Uranus. Uranus is direct again since the beginning of 2022 on the same degree as this solar eclipse. This can result in unexpected actions and changes related to messages for individual and humanity. This degree urges for cultivation and development of awareness.

For instance, for people born about April 30th, July 31st, October 1st, and December 30th there could be a message.

The yearly conjunction of Sun and Uranus on May 5th can carry a liberation aspect. Nice to have this on the official Liberation Day of the Netherlands and to remind those still in a need for liberation, in the first place to develop the own potential and in addition to make this effort also for a better world.

About May 2nd, we could fall in love easy. For those who are single a beautiful perspective, for those already in relation an aspect to be cautious as we still live in eclipse time.

About May 4th the energy is helpful to carry through important changes successfully.

In general, this will take little effort, provided we also consider the interest for the whole community.

Until May 10th in general the energy is positive and constructive.

On this day Mercury turns retrograde. Related to the solar eclipse energy an aspect to be careful.

We could easily get robbed or betrayed in some way. Be careful about those speaking too nice words promising luck and wealth.

On May 11th Jupiter enters Aries, this will give those born under Aries wings of prosperity.

But be aware not to be too egocentric or to exaggerate.

On May 13th we can meet very interesting people. They could play an important role in your next future and help us to recognize new challenges on out paths.

About May 15th we could feel opposition in what we plan to do. Follow your intuition, it can inform you about the changes needed to become successful.

The Full Moon of May 16th ends the period of the solar eclipse.

About May 18th we could become rather disoriented in our actions, we even could become literally “of the road”. It could also happen your motivation to make efforts could be far away.

About May 19th we could possibly be successful in our plans, in many cases we will be successful.

About May 20th we could be confronted with an abundance of communication. However, it could also be of use for our further development.

On May 21st the Sun leaves Taurus and enters Gemini.

It is also the moment where the Sun is intensively related to the energy of the Pleiades.

For those people having a Pleiadean background it could be a very positive experience.

In general, everything happening around us will be peaceful.

About May 23rd our activities will be directed to improvement of structures.

About May 25th the world will become more energetic, we feel more need for a physical activity.

It will be much more comfortable to put our energy in it.

About May 27th we will have corrections on the Stock market, but also some unstable relations may come to an end.

The day behind, when Venus enters Taurus, we will become more oriented on nature around us. It could possibly bring a new love. We could perform important efforts successfully.

About the end of the month, there is a New Moon energy, another transition moment with possibility for new choices. This time on the 10th degree of Gemini.

According to the astrological mandala this degree is symbolized by: “An airplane performing a nosedive”. It is the degree symbolizing the vast capabilities of mankind, but also makes clear the dependency to powers of nature.

This is also the degree where the fixed star Aldebaran resists. In the next newsletter there will be an article related to this.

It could possibly inspire us in the many areas we unjustly think to be superior and to come to a better insight.

The Pleiades and their mythological background

This month, the Sun is projected in the Pleiades, also known as the Seven Sisters.

This star sign is situated in the skies between the signs Taurus and Gemini.

On May 21st the Sun is exactly on the first degree of Gemini, where also Alcyone, the central star of the Pleiades is situated.

It inspired Eleonore Oldenburg to write the following contribution.

The stars of the Pleiades are named after seven sisters in Greek Mythology.

They were the daughters of Atlas and Pleione. After their dead Zeus placed them together in the heavens as a star sign, also called “the Seven Sisters”. They are placed in the last degrees of the Sun sign Taurus and the first degrees of Gemini.

The Seven Sisters are also known as the Oceanids, the Water women or Ice virgins, due to their association with water in whatever kind: seas, lakes, rivers, snow, ice, or rain.

They have beautiful names: Maia, Electra, Merope, Alcyone, Asterope, Celaeno and Taygete.

Their mother Pleione was a daughter of the sea gods Oceanus and Tethys, which were part of the big group of nymphs together called “Oceanids”. This group was born shortly after the creation of the world.

Pleione married Atlas and together they gave life to seven daughters, later known as the Pleiades, after their mother.

In Greek mythology, Maya is the oldest of the Pleiades. She is considered an earthly Goddess and midwife. She is known for her exceptional beauty, shyness, and isolated life.

Her special traits are intelligence, creativity, water, and magic.

Her name is also related to the Buddhistic concept “veil” and/or illusion.

As the only one of the Seven Sisters she staid living on the mountain Cyllene in the caves of Arcadia. “Maia” is Latin for mother; in other languages it also means caregiver or “the Great”. The Romans considered Maia to be as Goddess of Spring, for this reason we name our 5th month May. Once Maia was shining brighter than her sisters, nowadays Alcyone the second sister is the brightest. Maia is also called “Bona Dea”, the Good Goddess.

As soon as Zeus sees Maia, he immediately falls in love with her. Together they give birth to Hermes, later put as the messenger of his father. To be able to carry out these tasks correctly, Hermes received as attributes golden sandals and helmet, to be able to travel quick as an arrow through the skies. As the only one of the Gods, he was allowed to travel between the world and the Hades, the Underworld. He also guarded the death on their journey to the Hades. Therefore, Hermes is called the messenger of the Gods. Maia allows you to lift the veil of the earthly manifestation to discover the real nature of the universe and to protect you to get lost in your illusions. When you become aware of your illusions and the fake world you become a better insight in what really matters.


Electra leaves the parental home and settles on the isle Samothrace. When Zeus discovers her, he also falls in love with her. At first Electra is not interested and flies to the Palladium, but after a while Zeus manages to capture her heart. From gratitude Zeus creates a beautiful palace for her, where she becomes a Priest to honor the holy rites of mother Goddess Rhea.

He also promises that Electra, together with his sisters will be placed as a star sign in heaven “the Seven Sisters”. Due to her relationship with Zeus, Electra has a good esteem on the island and becomes a queen.

Although being happy with her children Electra, has a lot of grief for her father Atlas. Due to a punishment by Zeus, he must carry the arch of heavens. When Electra has given birth to her youngest son, Emathion, Aphrodite visits her with the small baby Harmonia.

She tells Electra that she is not allowed to raise her newborn baby herself. She asks Electra to do this for her.

Electra agrees and raises the 2 children. When Harmonia is old enough to get married, Zeus orders her to marry Cadmus. Cadmus is unknown for her. At the wedding the young married couple leaves the home and Electra stays behind in despair.

After a while Zeus keeps his promise and creates the star sign the Pleiades with Electra and her sisters.

Electra who is representing the stone amber is also known for her miraculous energetic appearances.

When you rub an amber stone, it becomes a negative electric load.

From the Greek word electron our word electricity is derived.

Mellie Uyldert (a well-known Dutch astrologer and natural healer) calls the amber stone “a golden sun gift for the human heart”.

The miraculous Electra also gave birth to Iris, the rainbow.

The Greek understood most natural appearances; however, the rainbow was something miraculous. The rainbow Iris was considered a message of Zeus.

She passed his decisions and approval to mankind. When the Greek had a big problem and a rainbow appeared in the heavens, it was considered a positive message and approval of Zeus.


Alcyone is the 3rd sister of the star sign of the Pleiades. She is one of the daughters being hunted by Orion. Zeus protected them by changing them in doves.

Later he placed them as a Star sign in the heavens, where they still can be seen.

From the Pleiades it is told that that cry without stopping for the loss of a sister, the star Asterope. Asterope has become less clear during the centuries. Another explanation is that they cry for the loss of the matriarchy.

The fog around the Pleiades makes a link between Alcyone and to see. Fog limits your possibility to see and forces you to look inside. In Arcadia the God of the seas Poseidon, together with Alcyone, gives birth to 3 children, a daughter and 2 sons.


According to one of the myths about the Pleiades one of the Seven Sisters, called Merope, was ashamed about her relation to Sisyphus, an ordinary mortal being and not a God, like her sisters. Therefore, her star was doomed to be less bright. However, Merope is, according to modern catalogs, not the weakest shining star of the Pleiades. The star Celaeno is also named the lost Pleiade. Merope becomes a son of Sisyphus, Glaucus. As a punishment for his bad behavior at life, he is ordered after his death to roll a heavy stone uphill. When he almost has reached the top of the hill, the stone rolls back and Sisyphus must start over again (Sisyphus labor).


Celaeno is the name of the so-called “lost Pleiade”.

The name is often translated as “melon” or “dark of skin”.

In Arcadia Celaeno becomes 3 children (suns) from Poseidon. Her star is supposed to be less bright than her sisters. According to the myth this is because she once has been hit by lightning.

Celaeno was a winged nymph, she had the head and the body of a women but the claws of a bird of prey.

Romantic painters however paint her without wings or claws and put an emphasis on het light-footedness as a creature of light.


About Asterope only little is known. Her name just means “star”.

In mythology she leaves the parental home and settles in Pisa, where she starts a relationship with Ares, the God of war. She gives birth to Oenomaus from this relationship.

It is said that Orion still is hunting for Asterope through the skies. Fortunately, Zeus also protected her by placing her in the Seven Sisters.

She is still seen as one of the weaker sisters, possible because her light is less bright.


Her name means long neck. After leaving the parental home Taygete goes to Korinthos where she sleeps with Zeus. In the myth Taygete is not open to the advances of Zeus. The Goddess of the hunt, Artemis helps her by changing her in a deer, helping her to escape.

Together they become a son, who is raised with love by Taygete.

The Empress in the Rider Waite tarot has a Crown with many stars. They represent the 12 signs of the zodiac and the 12 qualities needed to approach every individual type of mankind. On her neck we see a string with seven pearls.

She reminds to the Goddess Sesjat from ancient Egypt, where this represents the Pleiades.

In the ancient empire of Persia, they founded the order of the Pleiades. The name of empress Soraya means Pleiade. The seven stars were put as diamonds on the medallion of the order.

About the Pleiades exist many writings. Christiane Beerlandt, a Flemish author and philosopher of life writes about them in her book: Alcyone or the distorted self. She believes Alcyone has a symbolic meaning for whole mankind and that Alcyone, the great Sun in the Star sign of the Pleiades will move from Taurus to Gemini about the change of the century.

The book ‘Where are you really from’ written by Jo Amidon with the Teachers of the Universal Mind gives a description of the planetary descent of those originating from the Pleiades. This might be acceptable as many of the native culture from North America, are convinced they have a Pleiade descent. These people even think whole mankind is related to the Pleiades.

Pleiades are people having a deep and never fainting longing for peace and happiness for everybody. They possess of a nice and soft energy where others, like to get pleasure of.

When angry, Pleiades exhibit a passive aggressive behavior hoping others will make notice of it and answer it, without the need to discuss it.

Pleiades have a strong belief and trust. Already young they have a firm resoluteness, a deep knowing of the relation with the divine power, even in the darkest moment of time.

The Nebra slice of heavens

The slice of heavens found near Nebra (Saxion-Anhalt in Germany) is a witness that the Pleiades already were known in ancient periods (the bronze age).

This gold-inlaid slice is found in 1999, its origin is calculated at about 1750 before Christ.

It is probably used as a sacrifice for a man who died and buried together in his grave.

On the slice we see, next to the Full Moon (some interpretations say the Sun), and a slice of the Moon, several star signs. We clearly can see the Pleiades top left to the slice of the Moon.

Originally there were two horizon’s one at the left and one at the right side) and beneath we see the solar boat, where Gods were supposed to travel with between the stars.

With some good will, we could also recognize the Ursa Major (great Bear) above the Pleiades and Cassiopeia (above the solar boat).

Picture: the Nebra slice of heavens

The slice of Nebra is the earliest known object showing the nocturnal skies in its natural shape, it is pictured with stars as brilliant dots and not as Gods or mythical animals.

The slice is possibly also used by farmers for the planning of their harvest and shows that already in the Bronze Age, there was knowledge about the stars.

Light on the path & through the gates of gold (3)

This booklet of author Mabel Collins had been published in the first issue in 1887.

Possibly some of you know it.

When I opened it, I had been struck immediately by the contents and understood it contains messages still being of value.

At least the texts invite to reflect and offer the possibility to apply in the spiritual development of humanity.

Issues in this contribution are:

Rule 9: Only long for what already is inside yourself

Rule 10: Only long for what already is higher than yourself

Rule 11: Only long for what is inaccessible

Rule 12: Because the light of the world is in yourself.

That is the only light that can shine on your path.

If you can’t see it in yourself, it is useless to look for it elsewhere.

It goes beyond you because you lose yourself when you reach it.

It is inaccessible because it always withdraws when you can almost touch it.

You will enter the light but never touch the flame

A beautiful paradox, guiding you in your search for the light in your own life, hided in yourself.

Let it shine as a beacon for the world around you and keep it shining.

For the moment I leave it to the reader to try to understand these rules and get the answers.

Read them more often, every new exercise brings new insights.

Planet returns

Most astrologers are familiar with Solar and Lunar returns, indicating the return of the Sun and the Moon on their position at birth. The chart depicted on these moments gives information about creative accents for the coming year (solar return) and emotional accents for the month to come (Lunar return). Also, the returns of other planets can give valuable and interesting information.

Most of us know about the Saturn return and their effects and influence on our lives for the next 30 years to come. The first return is shortly before our 30th anniversary. It gives us information about structure and boundaries and how to integrate them in your life in the following 30 years.

The second return, about our 59th anniversary helps you to reflect on the results of the years behind and the changes we should make for the 30 years to come.

Some of us will be blessed by a 3rd Saturn return on the age of 88. In most cases it helps you to understand your life and may give you wisdom for the years to come.

Less known are the returns of the planets Mercury, Venus, Mars, and Jupiter.

Returns of Mercury take place yearly, on the moment Mercury passes on the same degrees as at birth of a person.

When Mercury is retrograde at that moment, we can see 3 returns within a short period of time (2 months). So, every individual can have 1-3 returns every year.

This year this will be the case for those who have Mercury on one of the following degrees:

  • Capricorn 25th degree to Aquarius 11th degree,
  • Taurus 27th degree to Gemini 5th degree,
  • Virgo 25th degree to Libra 9th degree.

Each return gives information about the accents in the period until the following return.

The horoscopes of the moments of return give information about the mental processes for the coming period until the next return. These processes have to do with the way we communicate or the way we use information and learn.

Persons with Mercury on one of the above-mentioned positions in their birth chart can experience intense mental processes.

A Venus return also takes place every year on the moment Venus is on the same position as in a person’s birth chart. A Venus return gives information about how we will seek to make loving contacts to others to become more whole. It also gives information about the way we will approach values in our lives.

Here also, we can have 3 returns in a period of 3 months, when Venus is retrograde. Especially people with Venus in their birth chart in Capricorn (between the 12th and 27th degree recently have had these 3 returns in a row. This can have stimulated a more intense process of revaluation in this period. Each return gives information about the accents in the period until the following return.

The house position on the moment of the return indicates what should be revaluated.

A Mars return takes place when Mars is at the same position as in a person’s birth chart.

It takes place on average every 23 months.

Mars represents the principle how we wish to assert our individuality, in other words how we will act to meet our personal needs as presented in the birth chart.

At the end of 2022 Mars will turn retrograde for a period of approx. 3 months in Gemini.

People with Mars in Gemini between the 9th and 26th degree will experience a triple Mars return.

Especially for those people a sabbatical might be a good idea.

Each return gives information about the accents in the period until the following return.

Don’t forget also to consider the house position of the return indicating the area of life that should be considered.

A Jupiter return takes place when Jupiter returns at the same degree as in someone’s birth chart.

It takes place once in every 12 years. A Jupiter return indicates by house position and aspects areas where personal development and growth might have a focus in the coming years.

Also, Uranus might arrive at the position in the birth chart in someone’s life.

This takes place about the age of 84.

For the generation born in the period 1935 to 1940 this return will come together with the oppositions of Neptune and Pluto with their birth position. This is opposition could be considered as a kind of full moon phase, where will be weighted what has been realized in our lives (for Neptune opposition Neptune: about our ideals, and for Pluto opposition Pluto about purification and matters of power).

A new orbit of Uranus will be influenced by the results of this weighting process.

The house position and aspects can give you information about areas to focus on for new ideas and freedom.


Stubbs and Kirby, Solar and lunar returns

Astrology and astronomy in daily practice.

Also, in April we every now and then had the opportunity to see Venus and Mars early in the morning shortly before sunrise.

Venus is slowly coming nearer to the Sun and Mars is making more distance, so Mars will be visible about midnight.

Mars even passed Saturn in April on the 4th and 5th and will also pass Jupiter on the 30th of May.

On May 22nd the Moon is on the same degree as Saturn, on May 25th the Moon is on the same degrees as Mars and Jupiter, and on May 27th it is on the same degree as Venus.

Also, Jupiter and Saturn will be visible, this time around midnight in the South.

On April 12th the planets Neptune and Jupiter were together on the 24th degree of Pisces.

It was a special day with beautiful peaceful energies.

This conjunction takes place once in every thirteen years in the succedent star sign, in 2035 this will be in Aries. The conjunction with Jupiter is the most beautiful experience for a passage of Neptune through a star sign.

The last time Neptune and Jupiter were together on the same degree in Pisces was om March 17th, 1856. Two weeks later, the peace treaty of Paris was signed, ending the “Crim” war.

This war was, besides from being the first modern war with many victims also known from Florence Nightingale, an English nurse who took the initiative to care for the many wounded victims.

Her behavior was the origin for the founding of the World Health Organization and the Red Cross a couple of years later.

On April 15th, 2022, the planet Mars also entered Pisces. Possibly this could also lead to a growing aversion against this Ukrainian war.

However, at the moment of the conjunction in 1856, the Sun was also in Pisces, this time it was in Aries.

On April 30th we have a solar eclipse. Often this is an indication for famous and honored people to pass away. This time we saw the dead of (119 years old) Kane Tanaka, a Japanese woman being the oldest (except one) living at her moment of death. In the Netherlands a famous artist (Henny Vrienten) passed away. He was loved by a whole generation for his inspiring and innovative music.

Unfortunately, this eclipse is also symbolic for the lives taken in the war in Ukraine.

The role of the Moon in spiritual development

(by Leidy de Groot)

In the March edition of this newsletter there was a contribution from Leidy de Groot about the spiritual meaning of the Lunar Nodes in our lives.

In addition, she wrote the following article about the role of the Moon in our spiritual development.

Together with the Sun, the Moon is an important duet for lives of mankind.

They form an inseparable two-unity being each other’s opposite and being complementary as well.

This is indicated in the Tai-Chi-symbol, Yin and Yang, light and dark.

The Moon as the primeval symbol of the ‘Great Mother’ incorporates the ‘Yin’ principal in the Chinese philosophy. The half circle of the Moon symbolizes the soul where our emotions and deepest agonies are hidden. The waxing Moon symbolizes fertility.

The Moon is the relation with our inner female dimension: the Anima.

Our rootedness in ourselves, in our family, in our personal live, our parental home, our own home, the community and the society.

It is of influence on the manner we connect with others and how we look for certainty and protection and how we care for ourselves, our children, and other people we share feelings with.

The Moon is crucial for our feelings and our receptivity. When in our youth the feelings were suppressed, we repress our Lunar consciousness and a distorted image of our emotional needs and of the Anima and Animas will be the result.

When, by a transit of Pluto, the deepest Mother instinct in ourselves is awakened, we will be confronted with our instincts (conditioned behavioral patterns) from the collective unawareness. In a flash of recognition, we can become conscious of the cosmic connection in ourselves. This can cause a certain embarrassment and an intense focus in yourself causing you to be tossed to and fro between emotions and instincts.

You might finalize existing unsatisfactory relationships to give space for a new one.

This is the destructive and transforming power of the Plutonic cosmic energy. The wish to unify with the male principle might become obsessive.

When you are unaware of your real needs, you might from a feeling of an unsatisfactory self-image, look for external compensation in matter, nurture and relations projecting your needs on the other. This is supposed to fill the emptiness inside as a compensation and substitute for the inner hunger you feel in yourself. However, this is not going to work, the emptiness in yourself remains and cuts you off from your source, your own creativity and spirituality.

Result: unquietness by a non-stop looking for your reason to be, physical and emotional complaints, tiredness, stomachache, obsession for nutrition and a big dependency from relations going to dominate your life.

Through introspection you can discover what your real needs are, feel them and integrate them in your life. This will be helpful for the instinct to manifest as a creative power.

Carl Gustav Jung about this: “What is inside us, but not helpful in life, develops against ourselves. Everybody neglecting his/her instincts will be attacked by them unexpectedly”. What you deny about your feelings will turn against you in a destructive way.

Then, emotions and instincts can overwhelm you without giving any possibility to control it.

When one can’t find rest, this can lead to depressions and vulnerability for emotional situations.

It is the longing in oneself source causing this vast restlessness.

By then, it is necessary to go deep inside to discover the wounded child and heal it.

It is about the ability to penetrate in the deepest corners of the self, the unconscious and the dark to connect the conscious with the unconscious.

The Sun, the basic symbol of the God and father is the light of the rational consciousness.

The light of the Sun can’t enlighten the darkness of the unconscious. This light sets to slender and rises again to replace the night. The light of the Sun can’t enlighten the darkness of the soul but can be helpful to destroy what he we like fin the unconscious.

See for example the myth where Psyche lost her lover Cupido by lighting a candle to be able to see him in the night in stead of heaving trust in his love he offered in the darkness.

Besides the stars, only the Moon can, by reflecting the light of the Sun, enlighten the darkness.

The casted light helps to save feelings and emotions of the soul.

The moon is reflecting the sunlight like emotions mirror the deepest feelings of the soul.

Therefore, the Moon symbolizes the mirrored and sensitive thinking.

What we symbolically can experience trough the Sun will be transferred emotionally through the Moon or repressed.

This is leading for the way we react emotionally.

According to Freud the unconscious is the psychological area of the Moon, where unpleasant events that took place in our lives are hidden.

Picture: The iceberg metaphor (Freud)

As the Moon feeds the memory with the light of the past, the Moon also gives us the possibility to remember. Through the unconscious side of the Moon, we can hide unpleasant experiences and put them far away to be able to forget them. But this is not how it works. When we are not aware of what we have hidden in our unconsciousness we make an unconscious projection of al this on the others.

Sometimes unconscious feelings can have a disturbing influence. The shadow of the unconscious will keep following us until we have revealed the hidden feelings and made them conscious. Not through the Sun (the rational thinking) but through the Moon (the irrational), we can become entrance to the darkness of the unconscious and illuminate it. It helps us to use our roots to discover our most intimate feelings.

When we succeeded to penetrate in the darkness, we should not stay there and swallow in feelings of self-pity, overwhelming us. We should try to use the healing power of the Moon to free us from anger, fear, pain, frustrations, and disappointment to release it forever.

This gives a feeling of rebirth. A child is born from darkness. We have become conscious of our Moon feelings, our roots, our basics our Anima. Then we can become aware of our creative talents, imagination, intuition, instinct, and sentiment, enabling us to create a nurturing life.

Our growth and evolutionary development are indicated by the Moon and her placement in sign and house of the birth chart. The sign where the Moon is placed indicates the inner power you can possess of to feel safe and protected. The house and aspects to other planets indicate the areas of life and possibilities to realize your needs and wishes and to release your karmic connection to the past. When we do not feed the needs of our Moon, we will manifest our needs in a compulsive way.

As the Moon makes a monthly orbit around our earth every month it will come back on the degree she was when we were born.

The lunar horoscope we can make at that moment, indicates the important energies can be expected for the coming 29 days. It is a kind of calendar to be used to be prepared and become aware of the energies you can expect.

When we use secondary progressions of the Moon (one day for a year) the progressive New Moon gives an indication of the process for the 29 years to come. House and sign of the progressive New Moon are the starting points for this. The phases of the Moon build during these years further on what has been achieved.

The secondary progressive phases of the Moon give direction to the flow of energy in your life. It is nothing else but following the waves of the washing and waning phases of the Moon (Bernadette Brady).
