CASE 297 - The pleiades

The Pleiades

The Pleiadians (supposedly) are from a star system called Pleiades. This star system is a small cluster of seven stars located in the Constellation
of Taurus the Bull. We call it the Seven Sisters.

The Pleiadians are a very ancient race of humanoids. They have kept a record of the complete history of Earth's human evolution
from the very beginning to our present time. Pleiadians claim our Earth is 626 billion years old.

Taurus is composed of two main groups of stars; the Pleiades and Hyades. The Pleiades are a star cluster with eta (η), Alcyone, as the principal star, situated on the shoulder of the Bull, also known as the Seven Sisters and Messier 45, or M45. Traditionally six of the stars are visible to the naked eye, another star is "lost" or "invisible" giving rise to stories and legends explaining the reason. In Japan they are called "Subaru". Their Persian name is "Soraya".

The Pleiades consist of nine named stars, some of them are small stars, the seven sisters; and to these have been added the parents, Atlas and Pleione:

Atlas - The father of the Hyades and Pleiades, who was condemned to support the weight of the heavens on his head and hands. Titan bearing up the Heavens. The Endurer. Believed by some mythologists to be the originator of the constellations. Others believe it was Chiron (Centaurus).

Plein - (Pleione, the mother), means `to sail', making Pleione `sailing queen' and her daughters `sailing ones.'

Alcyone - Seduced by Poseidon. The Central One. The Hen.

Asterope (Sterope) - Raped by Aries and gave birth to Oenomaus, king of Pisa.

Celæno - Seduced by Poseidon. Was said to be struck by lightning.

Electra - Seduced by Zeus and gave birth to Dardanus, founder of Troy.

Maia - Eldest and most beautiful of the sisters. Seduced by Zeus and gave birth to Hermes. Later became foster-mother to Arcas, son of Zeus and Callisto, during the period while Callisto was a bear, she and Arcas were placed in the heavens by Zeus (she as Ursa Major, Arcas Ursa Minor).

Merope - The missing one or Lost Pleiades. This is the seventh of the sisters. She alone, married a mortal man; Sisyphus, and she repents of it, she hid her face in shame at being the only one not married to a god and from shame at the deed, she alone of the sisters hides herself in the sky (there is some dispute over whether it is Merope or Electra that hides herself, i.e. the star does not shine). Her husband, Sisyphus, son of Æolus, grandson of Deucalion (the Greek Noah), and great-grandson of Prometheus. Sisyphus - Merope's husband - founded the city of Ephyre (Corinth) and later revealed Zeus's rape of Ægina to her father Asopus (a river), for which Zeus condemned him to roll a huge stone up a hill in Hades, only to have it roll back down each time the task was nearly done.

Taygete/a - This is the sister who consecrated to Artemis the Cerynitian Hind with the golden horns that Heracles (3rd labor) had to fetch. Seduced by Zeus and gave birth to Lacedæmon, founder of Sparta.
