(Several of the birthdata given for Dutch astrologers are from: "Willem Koppejan's Astrological Archives - International and Nederland & Vlaanderen, published in 1996) Willem studied medicine at the University of Leiden and made horoscopes since 1924. He was interested in religion and astrology, wrote books, did astrological research, teaching, gave lectures incl. at the Astrological Association in England and had a large medical and astrological practice in The Hague from 1945 till 1960. In 1960 he started a private publishing company and since 1959 had a joint astro-psychological practice in The Hague with his wife Drs Helene W. van Woelderen (married in 1970), until they moved to Glastonbury, England, in 1977. He became mainly known for his research into the symbols and degrees of the zodiac, combining the Sabian symbols of Marc Jones and Dane Rudhyar with the degree symbols of the French Janduz (Madame J. Duzea). Willem met Dane Rudhyar in 1960 during his first visit here with Helene, which later resulted in the publication by Carolus Verhulst of Servire of 9 of Rudhyar's books in English as well as some lectures in this country. (See under: Rudhyar) Willem wrote "The 360 degrees of the zodiac" in Dutch in 1956, which was later rewritten by his wife Helene in English with Niek Scheps as "The Zodiac Image Handbook" in 3 volumes, including his vision on Grail Astrology and published in 1990. The Dutch translation by Willem van Panhuys "Beeldgids van de dierenriem" in 3 volumes was published in 1991. Most of Willem's library on astrology and esoteric subjects is on loan to the Library of Avalon in the Glastonbury Experience, a complex of buildings with spiritual activities, started and financed by Willem and Helene in 1978.
