Editorial Reviews


"…is a unique and extremely interesting examination of both history and the unfolding present as seen through the prism of astrological significance…Without necessarily agreeing with all Grasse's conclusions, I think he is re-inventing a very old but very valid perspective. No more than a basic acquaintance with the signs of the Zodiac and their meanings is needed to understand Grasse's book and at the very least provoke a spirited inner dialogue." -John Anthony West, author of Serpent in the Sky: The High Widsom of Ancient Egypt and The Traveler's Key: A Guide to the Sacred Places of Ancient Egypt

From the Inside Flap

We may live in astonishing times, but they are not incomprehensible when you know how to read the signs.

Everybody says we're entering the Age of Aquarius, but when does it start, and how will we know what it looks and feels like? Ray Grasse deciphers the signs and correspondences of our nearing Aquarian future, using the tools of astrology, synchronicity, and mythology. He draws richly from contemporary religion, art, politics, science, even current movies, to show how the cultural signs of Aquarius and our likely future are already apparent and changing our world.

The Aquarian Age will be marked by its intensely mental quality, when information will be the driving force of society and the biggest challenges we face will be those of the mind. Decentralization will be the order of business, either the empowered individual will reign supreme, or the collective interests of globalized society will predominate. It could be both.

We are all participants in the global drama and all aspects of our inner and outer lives are bound up with the new Aquarian themes. ‘Signs of the Times' is the authoritative travel guide for the trip into our future – don't leave the present without it.

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Dave Gunning on August 24, 2003
Format: Paperback
In his usual insightful manner Ray Grasse shows how the profound symbolism of the signs and planetary forces in astrology synchronistically link up to newsworthy events. What I found especially fascinating is his conveyance of the transition from the Piscean to Aquarian Age through cinema. It's a fresh and fun approach to symbolism and the astrological language. This book is every bit as good as his previous one,"The Waking Dream". Even non-astrologers can derive benefit from it.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By OAKSHAMAN VINE VOICE on October 4, 2003
Format: Paperback
This volume is a continuation of the author's work on the symbolist worldview. To the symbolist, there is inherent meaning to the cosmos. This meaning exists on many levels in an intricately interconnected web of correspondences. In this book, the great meaningful and predictable cycles of time are examined in light of astrology, synchronicity, and mythology. These tools are shown to provide the keys for connecting the cosmic to the contemporary.
Once one verifies the validity of the symbolist view for one's self (and synchronistic verification starts to present itself to your conscious mind) one never sees the world in the same way again. For instance, current events such as Mars historic proximity, wars and blood shed in the Near East, and the break up of a space shuttle over Texas all start to fall into a meaningful pattern.
The common thread through this book is the nature of the dawning Aquarian age. It is pointed out that there are both positive and negative aspects to Aquarian energies- and it is as yet far from certain as to which will prevail.
This book is a worthy successor to the author's The Waking Dream.
