"The Pleiadians are a collective of extraterrestrials from the star system the Pleiades. The Pleiadian culture is ancient and was ‘seeded' from another universe of love long before earth was created. They have formed a tremendous society which operates with love, with ideas and ideals with which we are yet unfamiliar. Although the Pleiadians exist in what we would call our future, they call themselves our ancient family because many of us came here from the Pleiades to participate in the experiment of earth. As they once promised us, the Pleiadians have returned to earth and are now here to help guide us during this time of planetary awakening as earth moves through her transition from the third to the fourth dimension and to assist each of us in our personal journeys of remembering, deepening awareness and knowing," (From a handout at the San Diego Convention Center, The Pleiadians, Channeled by Barbara J.

The Moon is in Sagittarius, sign of higher mind, philosophy, the traveler, and teacher. The Sun is in the opposite sign of Gemini, mental sign of communication and the exchange of ideas.
