For 25 years, Aquarius Magazine was the premier "new age"/alternative spirituality/metaphysical publication in the south, and possibly/probably the entire nation. It was read by nearly 100,000 every month...readers from Georgia, Montana, California...and England, Saudi Arabia and India!
Notables such as Wayne Dyer and Deepak Chopra, as well as locals such as Kathleen Robinson and Becky Arrington, graced its pages. Artists were regularly featured, such as Keith Prossick, Sophia Sabowitz and The Flying Mystics. It was truly an adventurous and diverse publication...dedicated to exploring the mysteries and wonders of the dawning Age of Aquarius. We covered self-help, spirituality, relationships, politics...and we even dedicated an issue to UFO's - at the time, still a conspiracy theory!! How times have changed.
Below are some of the favorite and most requested issues of the magazine. Explore the timeless articles and reviews, and enjoy and remember the way things were, are and will be again. And stay tuned...the Age of Aquarius is here, and more is yet to come!!
