The discovery

I had a high status, well paid job at Philips including benefits. And this was a job like I had many jobs. Every time I felt how much energy it took me to “just do my work”.  I was really good at what I was doing but it felt like I was somehow roleplaying, never being my true self.

Then I discovered astrology and it completely overtook me. I started a study in Psychological Astrology, taking classes with a famous astrologer and reading every single book I could get my hands on. Even when I suffered from a burn out and had to quit working for a while I still wanted to continue studying astrology. My partner drove me to the other part of the country bi-weekly so I didn’t have to skip any classes. 

The turning point

Almost immediately I started to apply my astrological knowledge on friends and family and noticed that the things I told them about their charts where really spot on. Their talents, deepest  talenten, deepest desires and intentions but also shadow sides emerged from their charts and I quickly realised the importance of being extremely pure and thoughtful with this information.  I used my remaining days at Philips to get my Bachelor’s degree in Applied Psychology. After that I also took an NLP Practitioner and Master certification. And suddenly I was asked for completely different roles: HR Manager, Trainer, Coach… My last role on a corporate payroll was Program Manager of a talent development program at ASML (a high tech company). Inspiring young talents to believe in themselves and mentoring them to do what they do best.  Well, practice what you preach right?

The choice

There is a lot of prejudice about astrology. And because of my fear of not being taken seriously I kept my astrology wisdom underground. For ten years. Never I admitted to be an astrologer in public. While the people who did experience my knowledge and talent in astrology kept on urging me to really come out with it. And again it took an almost burn out situation to realise the inevitable truth: I was pretending to be someone I was not. Or not only. And then I made the choice to do what I am meant to do. It was time to come out of the shadows.  

When do you that you do what you are meant to do?

I know that I am an astrologer. I know this because there is  no difference anymore between who I am and what I do.  I know what I am meant to do and I give my talent to the world. Showing you what your purest potential is. Giving you insight in your life’s journey and how to walk this path as efficiently and effectively as possible. No labels, but development opportunities and faith.
