Venus passes seemingly through the Pleiades every 8 years. Next time this happens is in April of 2028. 

Venus last passed the Pleiades in a spectacularly close connection with this Behenian Asterism on April 3, 2020. 

This also happened on April 3 of 2012 when Venus was sitting super close to the Pleiades (as shown in the images below) within a ½° southeast of Alcyone (the brightest star in the Pleiades and considered the central star of this asterism) and ¼° south of the Atlas-Pleione pair for observers from the Americas.

It was mindblowing to see Venus pass through the Pleiades in 2012 and 2020. If you missed seeing this stay tuned for the 2029 passage as this is an event that happens every 8 years so the last time was in April 2004, 2012 and 2020. You can see from these other images below that Venus is often not quite as close with examples from 2015 and 2018.

The 2020 close conjunction was possible because Venus was Out of Bounds from Apr 01, 2020 at 11:14 pm PDT until Jun 01, 2020 at 04:48 pm PDT, meaning that Venus is at its greatest declination while passing the Pleiades and this is something that can only happen every 8 years.

The Seasonal Sign of Taurus Gemini Connection

With four of the stars of the Pleiades now in the seasonal sign of Gemini these star energies are beginning to find greater expression through the expanding awareness of the mind and with four of the seven stars still in the seasonal sign of Taurus there is grounded support for these new mental possibilities. So with Venus in this area of the sky the opportunities for inspiration and insight are heightened.

The Gemini mysteries show up as the Creative Muse, the Rainbow Goddess Iris, the Coyote Trickster, Kokopeli, Thoth/Hermes, the bringer of news and information as well as a guardian of the crossroads that lead to the secret knowledge of the Emerald Tablets giving us another way of looking at the Galactic Records. Some say when the secret knowledge of the Emerald Tablets is fully understood it will forever change our perception and experience of reality.
