Complete guide to the system of celestial metaphor which forms the foundation for the stories of the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. Sometimes called "Astro-theology," the study of the evidence that the scriptures, myths, and sacred traditions all employ celestial metaphor (using stars, constellations, planets, etc) to convey esoteric truths.

Embark on an epic journey of discovery through the myths, scriptures and sacred stories of our planet -- and the evidence that they are virtually all based upon a common system of celestial metaphor. Star Myths of the World was designed with two main goals: 1) to provide abundant evidence using literally hundreds of myths from around the world which demonstrate beyond a reasonable doubt that the sacred traditions of humanity all share a celestial foundation, and . . . 2) to teach you the reader how this ancient system works and how to recognize the language of the stars in the myths, building your "vocabulary" and "grammar" as you go along, so that you can eventually analyze Star Myths on your own. Using a unique format, in which the myths are presented in the first half of the book, and the star charts and celestial analysis are found in the second half of the book, you will learn how to perceive and interpret the distinctive patterns of celestial clues for yourself. The discussion and details presented build in complexity as you go along, so you that learn a few building blocks at a time and then learn how to see them in a variety of different mythological disguises and combinations. The evidence presented in Star Myths of the World revolutionizes the conventional understanding of "comparative religion" and mythology, and proves that the myths of humanity -- whether from the Aborigine cultures of Australia or the New Testament of the Bible, whether from Greek mythology or the Kich'e Maya of Central America, whether from ancient China or the Maori of Aotearoa -- all share a common foundation. Armed with this understanding, you will be able to dive even more deeply into the myths and sacred stories of humanity in newly rewarding ways, on your own.

The Seven Sisters of the Pleiades

Each can be traced to the legends of the Seven Sisters of the Pleiades. Munya Andrews explores legends from North America, Australia, Japan, the Pacific and back through time to Ancient Egypt, India, Greece and South America.

The seven sisters of the Pleiades are known throughout the world and appear again and again in stories from many cultures. Beginning with her grandmother's tale, Munya Andrews takes the reader to the stars, around and across the planet through Indigenous North America, Australia, Japan and the Pacific, and back through time to Ancient Egypt, India, Greece and South America. She explores the commonalities of legends to discover our common human origins. The Subaru from Japan share much with the young women depicted as birds in the stories from Greece and Indigenous Australia. The Pleiades have been the source of much mythology, wisdom and science over many millennia. The book is also an examination of culture and how culture is expressed through symbols and stories related to stars and other astronomical phenomena. Her work is distinguished from other studies in the field because she brings to it an Indigenous perspective which enriches its interpretative power. No other writer has captured the richness of this mysterious constellation.
