Aquarius Now: Radical Common Sense and Reclaiming Our Personal Sovereignty

Marilyn Ferguson, Author . Red Wheel/Weiser $22.95 (213p) ISBN 978-1-57863-369-2

Themes of seeing light through darkness and revealing secrets once hidden, as well as a range of inspirational thoughts on human perseverance from many a familiar thinker, pepper this book and indicate its tone and content. Using an often vague and confusing self-help style, Ferguson, author of The Aquarian Conspiracy and former publisher of Brain/Mind Bulletin , attempts to reignite the radical left toward social revolution by transforming humanity to combat the current "malaise," one self at a time. What we must save ourselves from is unclear, though Ferguson asserts it is neither Republican nor Democrat, liberal nor conservative, and only offers confirmation of her view that Christian fundamentalism is working for the dark side. Each chapter offers readers passionate, if choppily written, explanations of the many ways to use bodies and minds in the battle toward a higher consciousness. Filled with motivational bits like "Liberty is what we make of our freedom" and "You can have control or you can have creation but you can't have both," Ferguson's book is unwavering in its determination to inspire, if not offer an intelligible thesis.
