A former student of the Rotterdam Art Academy, he spent many years of his life working as an artist-painter. From 1962 he studied astrology, his particular interest centring on mundane astrology. In 1986 his book Waves was published by Ankh-Hermes. In this, Robert Doolaard described his unique research into the correlation between planetary cycles and the peaks and lows in recorded history over the past twenty-six centuries.
According to Doolaard, civilisation consists of the collective effort by humankind to rid the world of suffering. Both the successes as the failures of this effort run parallel to differentiable phases of planetary cycles. He therefore also refers to this original new vision into our past as planetary-cyclic historiography.
