Marguerite de Graaf TEXT-PROJECT /ASTROVISTA (Netherlands)

Marguerite de Graaf, 13 october 1956 (Libra, Monkey), 's-Hertogenbosch, NL.
"My passion for astrology lit up in 1982. Ever since I’m an keen researcher of spiritual subjects, though astrology remains my favourite. I assembled a colourful archive with piles of charts of friends, family and clients. My chart shows Uranus in house X, so my career path made some surprising u-turns. Love for language however, Dutch and English, has been useful in every episode of my professional life; in the music industry, for TV- and film productions, as a copywriter, journalist, PR manager and nowadays as a translator. Writing - in all kinds of formats - is the key in my varied vocation. My text agency http://www.text-project.nl has been active since 2002. I write for magazines, a.o. sun sign columns and articles on spirituality health and wellness, and translate the work of others. My astro-vision can be found on http://www.astrovista.nl. More information, please me."

Jorinde Brokke (France)

Jorinde was born (31/05/56) and grew up in the Netherlands; since 1975 she has lived – except for some periods of travelling and studying – in a wonderful hamlet in a French mountain area. She felt very early that an infinite variety of interpretations of the world and life were possible, and searching for elementary connections between different perspectives has always fascinated her. Whether or not by means of formal training, she studied a diversity of subjects (astronomy, astrology, psychology, Buddhism, ecology, economy, politics, literature…). When near thirty, she began a study (western) philosophy, in Montpellier, and this not only gave her the feeling of finally being "at home" in a world of thinking, but also, thanks to the structured, logical approach, gave her a better hold on knowledge and experiences gained earlier. To make a living (as a single mother of 3 children, one of them still at home), she followed a secretarial training course (French and English), and subsequently started translating (French and English into Dutch), a profession she has practised (again) full time since 2002.
