An inspiring leader, he started the "Astrologische Kring 's-Gravenhage en Omstreken" (= astrology circle for The Hague area) on 10/30/1928 at 20:37 GMT in The Hague. The group met regularly in the building of Bookstore Synthese (which is still located there today), Lange Voorhout 96, The Hague and after nine years decided to publish their own magazine, "Hermes," for cosmology, astrology and freemasonry, 1937.

H.A. Kooij was the author of "De tempel van de ziel - kracht en wijsheid in astrologie en vrijmetselarij" (= the temple of the soul - strength and wisdom in astrology and freemasonry), bringing the meaning of the symbology of astrology and freemasonry together.
