Praise for Surfing Aquarius

Surfing Aquarius is brilliant! It's so much more than an astrology book. Dan Furst is a fun and informative tour guide on a journey into these forthcoming times of transformation and change. Running the gamut from astrology to quantum physics to economics to medicine to relationships, this book explores the consciousness necessary for us to successfully embrace the years ahead.”  

 -- Jonathan Goldman, author of The Seven Secrets of Sound Healing and The Divine Name

"A hip, entertaining and stunningly informative account of how to thrive and prosper by embracing the spirit of community in the coming Age of Aquarius. A must read!"

-- Jim Dreaver, author of End Your Story, Begin Your Life

"Surfing Aquarius is a great guidebook to understanding and experiencing new levels of awareness.  There's so much great stuff here. You don't need to be into astrology to appreciate the information and techniques that Dan Furst offers in this powerful resource for the coming times."

-- Andi Goldman, co-author of Chakra Frequencies

“Among the archetypal figures, the most important one what our era desperately needs is the Trickster. The witty, jokey Trickster shows up (usually as a male figure) when a community becomes overconfident. He challenges self-righteous, greedy, pompous demeanors, deflates ego-inflation, and reestablishes a tipped balance. In the book Surfing Aquarius Dan Furst is positively performing the role of the Trickster. He is smart, funny and constantly challenges the narrow-minded.”

-- Ede Frecska, coauthor of Inner Paths to Outer Space

“Surfing Aquarius is deeply insightful, accurate, and right on time! Furst is a true master of the fine art of exciting the imagination for the sake of expanding consciousness. It is with great enthusiasm that I recomend this book to all those who seek to align themselves deeply with the true potential of mankind in this moment.”

-- Jay Schumacher, Clinical Hypnotherapist and international educator in the field of consciousness and personal reality.

"Surfing Aquarius is a great read, packed with a life-time of insights. . . . [Dan Furst's] comments on the birthing process, and the potential for trauma, are so very true. Working as a cranio-sacral therapist, birth trauma is an almost universal feature in clients, and it is often the source of major physical and psychological issues in later life. The 'Aquarian' approach to birthing cannot become the 'normal' practice too soon."

-- David Durham, cranial-sacral therapist

What is Surfing Aquarius About?
Surfing Aquarius is for people who want to make brave, optimistic choices in a spirit of community, and who see the years ahead as a time of spiritual transformation. Awakened human beings are already realizing our role as the co-creators of new societies based on Aquarian principles of teamwork and empowered service to each other and Mother Earth. The Aquarian Age is revolutionizing our politics and economies, families and love lives, our approaches to health, spirituality, community -- everything that matters to us. Surfing Aquarius is, above all, a practical guide for those who want to see which way the wave of change is breaking, so we can get ourselves and our families, our friends, communities, and our planet safely through the very fluid conditions and challenges of the years ahead.
The dramatic changes that we're seeing in every area of our lives become easier to understand if we see what the Age of Aquarius really means, and how it already affects us. For example? This chapter outline lays it all out:

Part I:

 Everything You Always Wanted to Know about Aquarius, but were Afraid to Dream

Chapter 1:   What the Water Bearer Brings        
How the Age of Aquarius will be, and already is, radically different from the Age of Pisces: The Hundredth Monkey and Morphic Resonance. The Global Field of Consciousness. The reality of things and the actuality of energy. Two kinds of people: those who believe in dualities of good vs. evil and those who practice love and resonance. The Aquarian Hive Mind.
Chapter 2:            The Great Year
The precession of the equinoxes and the Great Year. How we can tell what Aquarius will be like by looking at the most recent Great Ages:

Cancer, agricultural revolution, homes, lunar calendars, the rise of the Moon and the Earth Goddess

Gemini, social organization, family, the dawn of language and writing, the rise of Mercury

Taurus, wealth, the first builders in stone, professional artists, the rise of Venus

Aries, technologies and arts of fire, armies and adventurers, fire religions, the rise of Mars

Pisces, sea exploration, mysticism, the well of secrets, hierarchy, conflict and duality, the rise of Neptune

Aquarius, air technologies, friendship, male-female balance, revolution and freedom, the rise of Uranus

Chapter 3:         The Eleven Principles of Aquarius
Radical new meanings for old ideas: Revolution as not a nightmare of blood and butchery, but a “transformation of relationships” (Gandhi) and spiritual awakening. New ideas and images of the Aquarian principles of Evolution, Unity, Friendship, Transparency, Magic, Comedy, Electricity, Brilliance, Abundance, and Freedom
