A Pleiadian Angel
For most of my life I only knew that Yannie was an angel, who helped me along with many others on our life's path. I never questioned what kind of angel he was. Then one day in the late 1990s I asked him where he was from as I had not seen his name in any books I'd read about angels. His answer arrived in a strange way - a book I had read several times starting a few years earlier flew off my bookshelf landing in my lap, which of course kind of freaked me out. I certainly had my answer & decided to read the book again. The book is "Bringers of the Dawn" by Barbara Marciniak; tagged "Teachings from the Pleiadians". I recommend this book to anyone, who wants more insight.
The Pleiades themselves are a cluster of 9 stars in the constellation of Taurus. The stars are named after Atlas, Pleione and their 7 daughters. Also, the Pleiades are referenced the Bible - Job 9:9
The mythology associated with the Pleiades cluster is extensive. Much of the info in this site about The Pleiades I found on Astronomer, Steven J. Gibson's site. He also references some fabulous books.
I'd like to again include a book he did not reference; Bringers of the Dawn by Barbara Marciniak.
Possible other name derivations for Pleiades:
* plein - `to sail', making Pleione `sailing queen' and her daughters `sailing ones.'
The cluster was visible all night during summer sailing season in ancient Greece, serving as a seasonal guide.
* pleos - `full', of which the plural is `many', appropriate for a star cluster.
* peleiades - `flock of doves', consistent with the sisters' mythological transformation.
The Pleiad(e)s were the seven daughters of Atlas and Pleione, and half-sisters of the Hyades, whose mother was Æthra. Both Pleione and Æthra were Oceanids, daughters of Oceanus and Tethys, the titans who ruled the outer seas before being replaced by Poseidon. Atlas was another titan, who was condemned by Zeus after the war with the gods to hold up the heavens on his shoulders. The Seven Sisters were also nymphs in the training of Artemis.
The 7 sisters:
* Maia (1st sister) - means grandmother, mother or nurse.
* Electra (2nd sister) - means amber, shining or bright.
* Tayget(e/a) (3rd sister) - means long-necked.
* Alcyone aka Halcyone (4th sister) - means queen who wards off evil storms.
* Celæno (5th sister) - means swarthy.
* Asterope aka Hesperide (6th sister) - means lightning, twinkling, sun-faced or stubborn-face.
* Merope (7th sister) - means bee eater, mortal, eloquent.
One day the great hunter Orion saw the Pleiads (perhaps with their mother) as they walked through the Boeotian countryside, and fancied them. He pursued them for seven years, until Zeus answered their prayers for delivery and transformed them into birds (doves or pigeons), placing them among the stars. Later on, when Orion was killed (there are many conflicting stories as to how), he was placed in the heavens behind the Pleiades, immortalizing the chase.
The `lost Pleiad' legend came about to explain why only six are easily visible to the unaided eye. This sister is variously said to be Electra, who veiled her face at the burning of Troy, or Merope, who was shamed for marrying a mortal, or Celæno, who was struck by a thunderbolt. Missing Pleiad myths also appear in other cultures, prompting Burnham to speculate stellar variability (Pleione?) as a physical basis. It is difficult to know if the modern naming pays attention to any of this. Celæno is the faintest at present, but the "star" Asterope is actually two stars, both of which are fainter than Celæno if considered separately.
