Dutch astrologer who works with primary directions, developing original techniques known as Wim van Dam primary directions that were implemented in the Kepler software.

He is the author of the book "Astrology and Homosexuality" (1979/1983/1985) which has lots of gay/lez/male-to-female transsexual charts, and "he's quick to declare his heterosexuality in the book" stated Lois Rodden. Though married to Dorota and having children and grandchildren from obviously not gay relationships, Astrodienst wrongly mistyped and categorised Wim for years as being gay.

Wim van Dam was a teacher and friend of the prominent Dutch astrologer Karen M. Hamaker-Zondag. Both are ardent seekers for truth with a critical attitude to the dogmas of astrology.

Source Notes

From Jan Kampherbeek, Circles, 800 Horoscopes of Famous People, 1980, (Cirkels. 800 Horoskopen van Bekende Mensen). Wim van Dam has used his primary directions method to rectify his chart to 14:12:40 from the recorded 14:11.

Svi quoting Wim van Dam: Wim R. van Dam was born at Haarlem, Netherlands, 26 July 1950, 13.13 GMT (ascendant 9 Scorpio, Wim is not ashamed of revealing his horoscope to his fellow-astrologers since he has got Uranus very well placed and a ninth house filled by a proud stellium in Leo).
