(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Joyce Hoen was born on January 24, 1953, in the Netherlands. She taught medical astrology at a school for natural health in the Netherlands from 1988 to 1995. During that time, in 1991, she created and taught at the Centre of Humanistic and Transpersonal Astrology in her hometown of Zutphen. In 1996, she organized an international astrology conference in Amsterdam (at the now extinct Oibibio Centre) after having organized with Tees Reitsma of Astrokring many spiritual astrology workshops between 1988 and 1993.

From 1997 to 1999, Hoen had her own national spiritual and astrology radio program on Q Radio until the station had to stop because of a lack of funds. In 1998 she started email courses in astrology. She is the vice president for the Netherlands branch of the International Society for Astrological Research (ISAR) and she edits its weekly email newsletter. She is a freelance astrologer for the Dutch health magazine Sante and provides chart interpretations for a weekly television program.

Hoen also has a busy consulting practice and has done thousands of charts. She conducts spiritual master classes in astrology in a nature resort with students and astrologers from all over the Netherlands and Belgium. She lectures in Europe and the United States and taught at the Faculty of Astrological Studies in the summer of 2002. Her take on astrology is spiritual and is influenced by Dane Rudhyar’s and Alexander Ruperti’s approach.
