Each year from approximately May 16th to May 24th with a peak on the 20th (and these are indeed the exact dates for this year), the star system known as the “Pleiades” comes into exact alignment with the Sun of our galaxy. This star system is also called “The Seven Sisters”. It derived this name from Greek mythology whereby Pleione and Atlas had seven daughters: Alcyone, Maia, Asterope, Taygeta, Calaeno, Electra, and Merope.
