Starlight for the Soul - A Guide to the Pleiades
Journey to the Seven Sisters of the Pleiades and Discover why they have been a source of Inspiration and Wonder throughout Time
One summer night it was very still, not a murmer, even the fridge had stopped humming. I woke up about 3am and I could see my own auric field as if projected on the bedroom wall. What I particularly noticed was that part of my aura was connected to the Pleiades Star System. I knew beyond words and I could literally see it as cluster of information in my aura. Hence began my interest in the Pleiades.
Here you will find some great information, resources, facts, myths, poetry and soulful insight connected to the Pleiades.
I intend that as we journey together your eyes and heart will be opened just a little wider to the wonder of the Seven Sisters glittering in the night sky.
"Many a night I saw the Pleiads. Rising through the mellow shade, glitter like a swarm of fireflies tangled in a silver braid." - From Locksley Hall by Alfred Lord Tennyson
HOW TO LOCATE THE PLEIADES IN THE NIGHTSKY
Creating a Dreamspace for Stargazing
Turn out the Lights and turn off the TV, step onto your verandah or into your garden. You need a special comfy chair, a cup of coco steaming in hand, maybe some nice warm slippers for it's a cool clear spring moonless or new moon night, just what you need to view the Stars.
If you have binoculars or a telescope you will see more detail but all you really need is to create a little space (pun intended) to enter into a sense of wonder and mystery. It is free to dream for a while - just make some space inside to appreciate the nightsky.
The Pleiades (PLEE-uh-deez)is located in the constellation Taurus and as the brightest open cluster in the nighsky can be easily viewed with the naked eye, binoculars or a telescope. It is often designated M45 on star maps and charts. It is located to the left of Orions Belt (termed the "pan handle" in Australia). You will find Orions belt designated on most starmaps.
TIP: Use a FREE skymap from www.skymaps.com to locate Taurus, Orion, and the Pleiades as they currently appear in the nightsky at your location. For an interactive view of the MIlky Way Galaxy Go Here Can you find the Pleiades?
The Pleiades is best viewed in winter(november to April) for the Northern hemisphere and in summmer (September to April) for the southern hemisphere.
You may notice that the Pleiades is shaped like a tiny dipper. But remember that the Pleiades is a cluster and not a constellation. The stars in the Pleiades were formed in a single cloud of gas and dust. They are crowded together because they were born together. Most people can count five or six stars within the cluster. (Use the photo to identify each member.) Four bright stars--Maia, Electra, Merope, and Alcyone--make up the "bowl" of the dipper. If the sky is dark enough, you may be able to see these stars and several others without much trouble. How many can you count? If you were standing on Alycone what do you imagine you would see looking back to Earth?

TIME, SPACE AND THE PLEIADES
Astronomical Overview of The Pleiades
Perhaps the most famous and inspirational star cluster in the sky, the Pleiades can be seen without binoculars from even the depths of a light-polluted city. Also known as the Seven Sisters and M45, the Pleiades is one of the brightest and closest open clusters.
The cluster is dominated by beautiful, luminous, hot blue stars which have formed within the last 100 million years.
There are in fact 9 bright stars that can be easily viewed - and are named after the Seven Sisters of Greek mythology: Sterope, Merope, Electra, Maia, Taygete, Celaeno and Alcyone, along with their parents Atlas and Pleione.
The Pleiades are named after the Seven Sisters of Greek mythology: Sterope, Merope, Electra, Maia, Taygete, Celaeno and Alcyone, along with their parents Atlas and Pleione.
The English name of the cluster is of Greek origin but of uncertain meaning. Potentially - plein, to sail, making the Pleiades the "sailing ones"; from pleos, full or many; or from peleiades, flock of doves.
They are known as Matariki in New Zealand Maori, and as Subaru in Japan - The badge of Subaru cars features the Pleiades. Both the Great Pyramid of Giza and the Mayan Temple of the Sun in Cuzco are intimately aligned with the Pleiades.
The Pleiades' high visibility in the night sky has guaranteed it a special place across many cultures, both ancient and modern. As young stars they are often associated with the young women or maidens.
The influence is often portrayed as sweet and feminine.
In Greek mythology, they represented the Seven Sisters, while to the Vikings, they were Freyja's hens, and their name in many old European languages compares them to a hen with chicks.
The Lakota Tribe of North America who have a legend that linked the origin of the Pleiades to Devils Tower.
To the Mayans the Pleiades were associated with abundance, because they return to the Southern Hemisphere sky each year at harvest-time.
In ancient Eygpt they were the Seven Faces that foretold the destiny of each child.
To Aboriginal people in Australia they were part of the same "mob", part of the same "country" and as young women descended to Earth to play roles in story and myth.
The gentle glow of the Pleiades have also inspired and guided sailors over the Seven Seas - creating an orientation both of time and space to mark both location and the passage of time throughout the night.

Moldavite is a gemstone that fell to Earth. In this book the authors explore Moldavite in its scientific and mythic dimensions as an awakener and accelerator of spiritual evolution. This book opens a door to a new dimension of our inner world, and a pathway for those who wish to bring Light to Earth. Many references to the Pleiades here as the authors explore the links between Moldavite and the Pleiades.

MOLDAVITE - "THE STARBORN STONE OF TRANSFORMATION"
My experiences with Moldavite and Connections with the Pleiades, Sirius and Orion
About 20 million years ago a meterorite shower fell in the Moldau Valley of Czechoslovakia. The result of this shower was moldavite, a rare crystal of a bottle-green, translucent hue.
Although some people believe that it is a true meteorite (formed in outer space), it is more generally believed that it originates from rock that was struck by a meteorite and melted. According to the latter belief, moldavite combines extraterrestrial and terrestrial properties.
It is generally considered to be one of the stones very important for this particular phase of human evolution. Many people feel that at this time there are countless souls who are not originally from Planet Earth, but from the Pleiades, Sirius, Orion, and other systems.
When placed on the third eye, moldavite helps us to establish the cosmic connection. When placed on the heart it teaches us to appreciate the gift of being here on Earth.
On a more practical level, many people have reported that moldavite helps to release all that is no longer needed for personal growth: old ideas: leftover emotional/mental habits, whatever you know on a deep level needs to go.
I have been wearing a Moldavite pendant for ten years. I feel a great affinity with it. My immediate experience is that it greatly expands my aura and that it has an unlifting and energising quality. It has been a key part of my opening to a wider cosmic view of reality - I believe we need to understand our location within the galaxy and ground this understanding in our awareness.
Here is a door to a much grander perspective. Such perspectives are explored further in Moldavite - Starborn Stone of Transformation and in Barara Marciniaks Pleiadian Channellings (See the Amazon Links).
Moldavite is a high vibration gemstone as such it is not for everybody. If it spaces you out put a piece of black tourmaline in your pocket or wear some Rainbow obsidian as a complementary pendant, and you will keep your feet on the ground, if that's what you want. All in all I feel a heartfelt link to the pleiades and this link is amplified by the wondrous and mysterious moldavite.
FIND MOLDVAVITE ON eBay - Find the piece that's just right for you
Here's how to find the piece that's just right for you: Take a Minute to connect. Do this by finding a quiet space, taking a deep breath, and being honest with yourself. If your too busy right now come back later. Remember gemstones have subtle vibrations.To connect with them you need to be in a quiet and receptive space.
SEVEN SHINING STARS - Poem by ChiWizard
I strike the glitter in the gold
watch it explode your mind
my potions writhe into your bleached facades
my spells make slits within your paper story
my visions rush the night as stallions of fate upon
the rusty armor clad Conquistador
show me the pulse of your pale blue neck
so that I may feel its echo in my loins
Seek here now and with comfort
chew the darkness like a licorice
Sinews of light free falling
Speak your truth before your mouth is shut
Can you catch a falling Star?
refuse your daemons and you fuse the code
hear it spark and taper like flint and powder to the prize
cut flowers find their vase
a bridge in the nick of time
all will be well my love
Use your deft fingers
to probe my secret heart
together we have time
to braid your billowing hair
with Seven shining Stars
"Can you bind the beautiful Pleiades?
Can you loose the cords of Orion?"
- Job 38:31
"Now in the West the slender moon lies low,
And now Orion glimmers through the trees,
Clearing the earth with even pace and slow,
And now the stately-moving Pleiades,
In that soft infinite darkness overhead
Hang jewel-wise upon a silver thread."
-Marjorie Lowry Christie Pickthall
"In the endless starry nights
Of cold Midwestern winters
I will contemplate the heavens
With the shining seven sisters
of Pleiades and feel the
psychic energy that calls me
to your side." -Coach Roth
"There is the dipper first, and there
Is Cassiopeia in her chair,
Orion's belt, the Milky Way,
And lots I know but cannot say.
One group looks like a swarm of bees,
Papa says they're the Pleiades;
But I think they must be the toy
Of some nice little angel boy."
"The Moon is set,
And the Pleiades.
Night's half gone,
I sleep alone now."
sitting on a bench,
watching, if spoken to
he says Taseth Lun
in the Pleiades it means
something like Peace On You"

Barbara Marciniak's inspired channellings from the Pleiadians
THE BLUE FREQUENCY OF THE PLEIADES CLUSTER
Art, Music, Dance and Healing
Blue is the color of our creative expression associated with the throat chakra. The frequency of The Pleiades will lead you toward Art, Music and Dance as you gave substance to your inner creations.
It is also the color that takes you beyond the mind, body, and feeling into Spirit - It is a gateway to Consciousness and Light beyond the known of our existence.
It is calming, peaceful and relaxing and leads to insight and harmony. Try just lying flat on the ground on your back and gaze up into the Sky observing the white clouds drifting and fading across the deep restful blue of the Sky.
Blue is found in prophecies about reality moving into higher frequency - viewed by us in linear time as the future. Midnight blue 12:00 - December 21, 2012 - Mayan Calendar - the end of Time. We have gods and goddesses returning at the end of time. Click Here! to read more here about the Blue Star Kachina (Sirius) and the Hopi Prophecy for the End of Time.
"We ask each of you to open your mind and heart, for within your body and Earth herself lie the answers to the great mysteries you seek. It is time for you to reclaim your knowledge as creator through thought, to recall the purpose of the LIving Library of the Earth, to restore beauty through value of life, and to remember who you are."
