The Pleiades

star cluster, also known as the Seven Sisters and Messier 45.
Is a name given to a cluster of stars in the shoulder area of the constellation of Taurus, the Bull.
Six of the many hundreds of stars in this cluster are easily seen with the naked eye. A seventh star, that is invisible or hidden, is often included when reference is made to the stars
of the Pleiades.

The cluster contains hundreds of stars, of which only a handful are commonly visible to the unaided eye. The stars in the Pleiades are thought to have formed together around 100 million years ago,making them 1/50th the age of our sun,
and they lie some 130 parsecs i.e. 425 light years away.

In Ancient Mythology

These stars have been recognized and celebrated in nearly every culture that has lived on the Earth.
For Northern hemisphere, the cluster is above and to the right of Orion the Hunter.


The Seven 7 Sisters


In India
it was the junction star of the nakshatras Krittika and Rohini, and Amba, the Goddess Mother.

In Hindu literature
it was Arundhati, wedded to Vashishtha,
The Chief of
The Seven Sages, as her sisters were to the six other Rishis of Ursa Major.

In Greek myths,
are the daughters of Atlas, the giant who supported the world on his shoulders,
and Pleione.  Zeus first transformed the sisters into doves, and then into stars to enable them to escape the attention of Orion,
who for seven long years pursued the maidens, and Pleione, to claim them for himself. 

The sister star Alcyone
represents in the sky the Atlantid nymph who became the mother of Hyrieus by Poseidon;
now the Light of the Pleiades.

Temples in Greece and Ancient Egypt were oriented to these stars. The Great Pyramid at Giza had been built in alignment with the Pleiades.

The Early Arabs
called
the sister star Alcyone Al Jauz, the Walnut; Al Jauzah the Central One; and Al Na'ir, the Bright One.

The Ancient Greeks, Hindus, and Egyptians recorded seven stars.
It is thought that the seven chambers of the Great Pyramid represented the seven stars of the Pleiades..

The sisters are Alcyone, Merope, Celaeno, Taygeta, Maia, Electra, and Asterope. 
According to one legend, only six of the stars can be seen because Merope hid herself in shame over marrying a mortal.

In Ancient Americas.
The pyramid and temple complex of Teotihuacan, near Mexico City,
is oriented to where the Pleiades set along the horizon.
Every 52 years in the Mayan civilization the Pleiades would pass directly overhead of major ceremonial centers, such as Tikal and Palenque. Chichén Itzá was "reactivated" by the Quetzalcoatl. At that time, Pleiades passed directly over this site, and the star called Maia, was directly over the zenith of Chichén Itzá. The influence of the Pleiades is the most heightened in May and November every year. This is when Pleiadian consciousness is most accessible to humanity.

In Polynesia Temples,
Stone circles and other rock formations and many other places on the planet show Pleiadian alignments.

Time-Keeping.

Associations made with the movement of the stars of the Pleiades is that of time-keeping.
There have many calendar systems that utilize the positions of the Pleiades, agriculturally and sacred.
The pyramid and temple complex of Teotihuacan, near Mexico City, is oriented to where the Pleiades set along the horizon.

The yearly cycle of the Pleiades begins around the middle of May, when the Sun is aligned between the Earth and the stars of the Pleiades. Due to the close proximity to the Sun the stars of the Pleiades are not visible at any time of the night.
Pleiades are visible and can be seen rising at dawn around June and this is called the heliacal rising of the Pleiades
.
This is regarded as very sacred.

When the Earth is aligned between the Sun and the Pleiades during November, the stars of the Pleiades can be seen in the sky for nearly the entire duration of the darkness of night.
The esoteric messages that take place in May come to fruition during the month of November.
This is when the energy of the Pleiades is most directly available.

Another Pleiadian cycle involves the planet Venus. After sunset on April 2, 1996, Venus could be seenclose to the Pleiades.
This happens only once in every eight years.
This event and its influence on the inner psyche is intense. Venus' will again return, be even closer to the Pleiades in 2004.
Again when Venus returns in 2012, it will be nearer to the central star Alcyone and Maia.

Ancient Mayan Astrologers
based this very important conjunction of Venus and the stars of the Pleiades for their calendars.
The Mayan calendar cycle ends in 2012, the same year as Venus's passage through the stars of the Pleiades.
In 2012, on May 20, there will be a solar eclipse conjuncting the stars of thePleiades.
A unique alignment of the Sun and the Moon between the Earth and the stars of the Pleiades.

A little before the end of the Mayan calendar,Perhaps from year 2004
the Sun, the Moon and Venus all bring in deep inner messages from the Pleiades
, Sirus and Orion.

This spiritual guidance comes from Galactic Center. Since the Earth was created,
the Pleiades have been functioning as a local center for galactic transmissions for the Earth.
Hence deep inner memories of this system. Since the harmonic concordance of 1987 the Earth is just now evolving,
to finally receive energy and frequencies directly from Galactic Center.

The Earth's evolution and it's leap in newer realities is now for the year 2012 onwards .
Many of the galactic responsibilities for the Earth and humanity are being transmitted directly to all of us.
Awakening to your inner Pleiadian reality is the mirror of what is happening on a galactic consciousness.
