The Pleiades star cluster, formed approximately 100 million years ago, also known as the Seven Sisters in Greek Mythology) and Messier 45. The cluster contains hundreds of stars, of which only a handful are commonly visible to the unaided eye, and are approximately 425 light years away.
Associations made with the movement of the stars of the Pleiades is that of time-keeping and they have been celebrated throughout many cultures:
- The pyramid and temple complex of Teotihucan, near Mexico City, is oriented to where the Pleiades set along the horizon.
- Greek temples and Ancient Egypt were oriented to these stars. The Great Pyramid at Giza had been built in alignment with the Pleiades. Temples, stone circles and other rock formations in Polynesia and many other places on the planet show Pleiadian alignments. In Egypt, in the year 2170 BC, on the first day of spring, at precisely midnight the Pleiades were visible through the south passageway of The Great pyramid. Cheops contains fascinating mathematical correlations to the Pleiades including, the seven mystical chambers. The rotation of our solar system around the Pleiades takes 25, 827.5 years. This number was worked into the structure of Cheops in four separate locations. The most notable is in the base diagonals of the pyramid which are 12, 913.75. This number multiplied by two is 25, 827.5. Coincidence? Is it also coincidence that the three major pyramids of the Giza plateau are a mirror image of the stars in Orion’s belt? What was the connection between the two stars systems?
- Cheyenne -In a Cheyenne version of the Dog Husband story, the mother and her children go to the sky and become the Pleiades constellation. The Crow liked to express themselves poetically, and often they recited in song. The military societies have many songs that express their high aims and others that are songs of bravado.
- Lakota -The Lakota believe that after death, the soul returns to its home in the Pleiades. The Kiowa and Cheyenne have oral histories that seven maidens were placed in the night sky to protect them from a bear. These seven maidens became the Pleiades.
- Every 52 years in the Mayan civilization the Pleiades would pass directly overhead of major ceremonial centers, such as Tikal and Palenque.
- Peru -In ancient Peru the Pleiades were revered as “The arbitors of human destiny.” These early civilizations of South America believed the stars were inhabited and that “gods” came from the stars to change their lives forever. Pre-Inca societies believed that people from the Pleiades taught them how to use fire, plant and harvest crops and utilize mathematics and astronomy.
- Africa -the Pleiades is also interpreted as a mother hen with her chickens, especially in Eurasia, where the star Aldebaran, which is located close to the Pleiades, is often included as a part of the constellation. In Africa the Pleiades designates the beginning of the agricultural year.
- Incans – the Pleiades were called “little mothers,” and festivals were celebrated on their reappearance in the sky. Earth was called Paca-Mama, or “Earth Mother.”
- Andes – two main festivals fell at the winter and summer solstices.The Pleiades watched over the agricultural cycle, while other stars and constellations were associated with the prosperity of the flocks of llama that were all-important to the Andean economy.
- 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.
- Many cultures believe that they are descended from humans residing on a planet within The Pleiades. The Pleiadian forefathers are said to have originated in the Lyra-Vega Star Systems and have been visiting Earth sporadically for over twenty-two million years. At the present time, because they feel responsible for the development of mankind on Earth, The Pleiadians are sharing their knowledge and wisdom with us to help us rediscover the truth about ourselves and the universe.
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. The conjunction in May -where the Sun conjuncted Alcyone, the brightest star in the Pleiades – at 27 degrees Taurus – brought a place of understanding more deeply in our hearts the suppression of the Divine Feminine throughout history….to embrace compassion and forgiveness, such that we can move forward with Grace and ease.
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 and bring messages to fruition. During/after the Solar Eclipse, the Sun in Scorpio is in opposition to Alcyone in Taurus. Scorpio is the serpent (Asclepius in vedic astrology), the birth canal for channelling and anchoring of the Divine Feminine.

The Pleiades Star Cluster in the constellation of Taurus. Called “The Seven Sisters,” there are nine stars included in the open star cluster, as they are joined by their parents, Atlas and Pleione. One of the nearest clusters to Earth, it is 440 light years away, give or take. Some millennia ago, an advanced civilization from the Pleiades star cluster introduced their genetics on planet Earth. They observed the evolution of the species, experimenting with ways to further spiritual development. Atlantis, the ancient Egyptian and Greek civilizations were all Pleiadean projects. Their programmed “energy signature” was encoded and imprinted on DNA, the way fingerprints are left behind when you touch something. This energy signature responds to its own origins, like a radio tuned for one station.
When our Sun is at Galactic (25, 26, 27) degree of Taurus or Scorpio, we are in astronomical alignment with the Pleiades, both at the conjunct in Taurus or the opposition in Scorpio. The Pleiadean energy signature on the planet is activated, like a gong that lasts for three days, twice a year. It is a time of Pleiadean entrances and exits, when they tend to their projects, whether starting, maintaining or ending. Those with the matching energy signature can be activated (woken up), those already awake can be empowered, and those ready to finish and graduate may leave, or start something new at a higher level. While the Pleiadean interaction here isn’t limited to this timing, it is the time of the highest activity.
Pay attention to what happens on November 16, 17, 18, 19, and 20, not only in your personal life, but on a global scale. Ultimately, the Pleiadean agenda is one of spiritual development toward the ability of a species to live in harmony with each other, realizing a group conscience and consciousness, and to live in balance with Nature. What we call Pleiadean Lineup, is both an astronomical alignment and a time for activation, realignment or action concerning Pleiadean agendas. – http://iamlovelightbliss.blogspot.com
Does this suggest that every 5200 years, the Earth experiences a massive star seeding? This brings me back to the eclipse in May 2012, conjunct Alcyone. Remember the ancients believed an eclipse created a tunnel to their star gods – could a portal open directly to Alcyone? If you believe all the channelled material regarding the Pleiadians, they are returning to aid our planetary ascension into a higher frequency. In Australia, on 14 November 2012, a solar eclipse will shadow across our land, the centreline directly over Cairns. This eclipse will be exactly conjunct the fixed star α Serpentis in zodiacal Scorpio. The serpent is one of the most ancient of symbols denoting wisdom used by high initiates in the mystery schools. Many Gnostic traditions identified the serpent with Jesus. – Cosmic Intelligence Agency
Pleiadian Alignment Message: Dear ones, though this alignment will more directly and perfectly impact those who are identified as star-seeded, it has potential to bring benefits to all beings that wish to receive it’s light, wisdom and blessings. This Fall event is a further extension and activation of the Venus Transit event from last May, as well as the recent Full Solar Eclipse, as it now carries an elevated Serpentine energy of divine wisdom and healing. It will be subtle, but also powerfully felt through thought and intention, especially in the evening hours when the stars light up the darkened sky with their light. For those that wish to connect with their Pleiadian star brethren may do so more easily at this time and may catch glimpses of their presence as orbs or white/silver/blue rays of light. Meditation, ritual and prayer work are all highly indicated at this time; along with a general sense of receptivity and openness. This is a divine opportunity to receive yet another light shower of Grace and Blessings for all who would receive. Shanti. – The Keepers, 11.15.12

Tuesday, 13 November, 2012
This month we will see the continuing acceleration, with increasing intensity, of that which we have been witnessing and experiencing all year – extremes of actions, emotions, responses and revelations. The higher frequency energy flooding our planet, and our cells, is triggering and bringing to the surface everything within us that is in alignment with that energy. We are seeing this with increasing numbers of people experiencing a greater sense of community, a greater desire for peace and unity, a greater need for fulfilling relationships and meaningful work and a greater drive for truth, fairness, justice and equality. It is also bringing to the surface everything within us that is not in alignment with that energy. We are seeing this with flare-ups of old feelings we thought we’d dealt with, and the inability to tolerate situations that we accepted in the past. We are seeing major upheavals in our social, religious and political structures as the cornerstones that have been holding them together no longer have the required energy available to sustain them.
We are also seeing individuals and groups with a lot of resistance to this shift. Some of these folks are moving forward kicking and screaming, feeling very angry about changes that are happening, seeing it as an attack on everything they believe to be ‘right’. Others are unable to move forward and change as they are inwardly being guided to do, due to strong fears, yet it is impossible to stay in the old energies at this time without experiencing a great deal of discomfort. So these folks are experiencing various degrees of ‘frozen stuckness’ manifesting as depression or physical health issues in many.
Our next chapter is about us moving forward as conscious, awake and aware beings who are truly free and empowered to creatively co-create our world. As we move forward into the next chapter of our human evolution we are experiencing a massive quantum leap of expanded awareness as so much that we have been unaware of is now coming into our conscious awareness. More of our higher self, that part of us that holds a higher state of vibration and consciousness, is currently in a process of descension – descending into our physical bodies so that we are more and more becoming living embodiments of who we are on that higher level. There has been much focus on ‘ascension’ as our physical world moves up into a higher vibration, but the process of descension is happening simultaneously as our higher consciousness grounds into our bodies and physical reality.
The fact that this higher consciousness is of a higher frequency to what we have become used to cannot be over-stated, and that is why it is so important to clear our old stuff. This is why we have all been receiving the same inner message for years: wake up, clear your stuff, heal your issues, change your thoughts and patterns. For those who haven’t, it’s like putting a high voltage appliance into a low voltage socket – the appliance will short circuit or blow a fuse; which we are seeing happen in people physically and emotionally in so many ways. Old paradigms, old ways of thinking and old ways of acting are self-combusting and imploding in so many arenas.
This expanded awareness is giving us lightbulb moment after lightbulb moment, giving us more pieces of the jigsaw as to what is contributing to the creation of our reality: on a personal, family, community, country and global level. This expanded awareness includes everything from gaining major insight into our inner beliefs, patterns, cellular stories and soul potential to finding out more of the truth about political and intelligence agency cover ups, child sexual abuse cover ups, corporate wrongdoing and what those in positions of power really believe and say behind closed doors (no longer closed thanks to sneaky camera phones and instant you tube uploading).
We are finding out so much, on a daily basis, about the power games being played by those who put their own agendas ahead of the needs and rights of other people. It’s said that Earth is a planet of free will. Well that sounds like a lovely playground idea but it’s time to grow up and step into our next level of consciousness and realise a couple of things about this whole ‘free will’ situation. In actual fact, we have not had true free will, and many on Earth have completely abused the amount we’ve been given. Free will is the freedom to do what you want without restraints. Yet we have had plenty of restraints on us. We’ve been limited from knowing and embodying the bulk of who we really are, where we’re really from, why we’re really here and what abilities we all really have. What we all really know on a higher level has been hidden from our conscious knowing all our lives! It has been incredibly restrictive to have had to live our lives oblivious to the fact that our lives are how they are predominantly because of non-physical aspects of ourselves that we were never taught to look at or acknowledge. If we have ten potential doors in front of us, but are only aware of three, and are ‘free to choose’ any of those three, is that really free will?
Most people are innocently living their lives, doing the best job they can to raise their families and be good citizens, oblivious to the fact that a bunch of shady characters are running the world as they see fit, polluting the Earth, corrupting the political and financial systems, creating a war here and there for personal profit, and participating as players in toxins, injustices and abuse galore. All the while keeping hidden knowledge and resources to themselves that could help humanity and humanitarian crises in a flash.
This is not a Hollywood movie. This is not science fiction. This is not conspiracy theory. It is our world. Thankfully the time allocated to the shady characters for their way of doing things is over (and for the spiritually ‘politically correct’ folks, yes we learned a lot with all these restraints, yes we chose it all, yes we’re all one big happy family at the end of the galactic day). However, we’re moving now into a new time with new ways of doing things.
Our expanded awareness will be such a turning point in our evolution. An increase in consciousness is not about being more zen and blissed out, although that’s a lovely added bonus. It is about living life awake and aware, knowing what’s truly going on within and around us, knowing what factors are contributing to the reality we are living in. It is about using that expanded awareness to consciously create our reality. Our quantum leap in consciousness will thus be, and already is for many, a very grounding experience for those who choose to use this leap to create new lifestyles, new ways of building homes, new media intentions, new ways of working with our health, new styles of governing, new education models and so on.
Between the old time and the new time is the transition time, and we’re in that right now. The transition time is the time when everything that has been hidden is revealed. It has to be revealed in the same way that everything under a carpet is of course revealed when you go into a room to re-decorate. Just like any ‘under the carpet’, what you see and discover is not always pretty but thank goodness you looked because now you can sweep it away and have a clean, shiny floor! Our new chapter will be built on new foundations of truth, greater consciousness and higher awareness, with respect for all living beings including our planet being a priority.
Revelations and revolutions are happening now in so many ways. People are currently living through the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, and our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected in the Caribbean and U.S. The days, weeks and months ahead are going to reveal many ‘holes’ in the way ‘authorities’ deal with humanitarian crises. Of course, these ‘holes’ have existed in previous situations, but the difference now is that so many more people are going to be aware in a conscious way of these ‘holes’ and will vocally call for those responsible to be held accountable or change to respect the needs of the people.
The United States just re-elected President Obama which surprised many given the concern about the economy. It was not surprising to anyone who is aware which way the vibrational wind is blowing these days. While many are disappointed in Obama’s perceived performance over the last 4 years, to shift to the alternative would have been a shift to beliefs, policies and mentalities that are of the old world.
This doesn’t mean that there has been a resounding endorsement of President Obama. While the majority prefer him to the alternative, they are being very clear that the next four years need to be different. Inspirational speeches are no longer enough. While it’s now clear to most that in order to get into a position of power like that you have to ‘play the game’, the people are being very vocal and saying “We have had enough of the game!”
“JV: I think every politician should wear a NASCAR race suit at this point.
KR: Why’s that?
JV: You know how the NASCAR race suits all have the ads stitched on them from the driver’s sponsors? Politicians should wear that too so we can see who owns them.”
– Jesse ‘The Mind’ Ventura On Politics, Porsches And Paddleboards by Kenneth Rapoza, Forbes.Com
This election was not so much about the election of a new President. It was about people coming together to declare what they wanted, and what they did not want. We are entering the era of the heart, and the election came down to which candidate most resonated with the people on a heart level. If the current President, in conjunction with his government, doesn’t act in alignment with the trust people have placed in him, if the political machine insists on continuing to ‘play the game’, we will see outright social anarchy and rebellion to overthrow the entire system. This is not business as usual time. Everything not in alignment with the higher frequency energy we are entering has to transform or collapse, and that is just how it is.
“The heart won’t fix our economy or create jobs” many of you might be saying. This will be hard to hear but certain aspects of the economy are not supposed to be ‘fixed’, they are broken because they were built on a corrupt foundation. Certain jobs and industries are not meant to continue. The shift is not a spiritual concept, it is a real, physical process facilitating transformation on every level. We will eventually see a new economic system emerge. We will see new jobs and fields of work develop. But the fact of the matter is that we are in the transition time and this time was always going to be bumpy. No President or Prime Minister or person is able to avoid the turbulent waters we are in, however there is a vast difference in outcome depending on how they choose to navigate their ship.
A heart-based perspective will provide a more easeful passage in the current energetic climate, even if a mind-based perspective would seemingly make more sense in the current economic climate. In the old reality, people have the attitude that as long as the economy is okay, everything is okay even if it actually only benefited the few at the expense of the many. In the old reality, hearts are constricted and souls are driven by fear, creating a ‘what’s best for me’ mentality.
In the new reality our hearts are opening and our souls are yearning for love and connection. We strive for ‘what’s best for us all’ solutions. We are discovering that a healthy economy on the surface covered a multitude of corruption underneath. This corruption has to end. Politicians and business employers have to have new ways of working and new ways of treating their fellow people. So, in this way, the heart will create a new economy and will create new jobs.
This month we will be blessed by three major alignments: the November 13 Solar Eclipse, the Nov 19 Pleiades Alignment and the Nov 27 Lunar Eclipse. This series reminds me of the process that happens when you drive through the carwash: soap is squirted on, the water comes at you from all angles, and the automatic washers start pummelling your vehicle. You can’t leave halfway through if you get a bit scared. You signed up for the whole deal, so you just have to sit there while your car gets a good wash and rinse. Then comes the hot air and the driers, removing all the drops and making you nice and shiny. You wait for the green light, and off you go into December, a cleaner, clearer, sparklier version of your former self.
